Music Gateway (www.musicgateway.net), the first all in one digital management tool for the music industry, has partnered with global music services giant proTunes. Concurrently, the Music Gateway website enters a new chapter with a host of additional features and digital innovations.
Music Gateway allows members to manage their music projects in one place. Singers, musicians, songwriters, advertising agencies, music supervisors, labels and publishers can collaborate, connect, pitch and license work. Founded by music industry veteran Jon Skinner, the company counts Dave Stewart (The Eurythmics) amongst its investors and board members.

- A file storage system built specifically to meet the needs of the music industry, with bespoke tools including metadata management
- An Audio Library view making it easy to search and find music to pitch
- An app allowing members to manage their projects on the move
