Artists can launch a listening party for new song releases with a series of limited edition NFTs to capture more value from their art and more closely connect with their fans. Fans can support their favorite artists, inscribe a public comment on the song, and engage with the artist & other fans.

FAQ
Sound Swap is a new feature that allows you to one-click collect and sell editions of your favorite songs.

For drops with Sound Swap, you can now mint editions at any time – even after the primary sale ends. As new editions are collected after the primary sale, funds are stored in a liquidity pool. As the pool grows, you can instantly sell your editions at the current market price.

Sound Swap automatically determines the price based on how many editions have been collected, serving as a price discovery mechanism between supply and demand.
First, you’ll need to connect your 🌐 Ethereum | Wallet via MetaMask or WalletConnect.



Releases on Sound are structured as a listening party so that everyone can experience the track together before purchasing the token.



Once the song ends, you can enter the queue to purchase the NFT by clicking the “Ape” button. If you’re let into the queue, you will have 45 seconds to confirm your transaction in your wallet (if you don’t authorize the transaction within that time frame you will need to reenter the queue). If all editions are sold out while you are in the queue, you will see a “sold out” message.



After purchasing the NFT, you can make a public comment on the song at a timestamp of your choice (you’ll have to authorize again in your wallet but there is no gas fee to leave a comment).
After supporting an artist by purchasing one of their NFTs, you have the ability to make a public comment on the song that proves you were an early supporter. If you sell the NFT, your comment is replaceable by the new owner. Holding an NFT also gives you early access to listen to new music from that artist as soon as they upload. Aside from the comment feature and early listening access, Sound also offers holders access to gated Discord channels.



Artists that release on Sound can also include additional rewards for their collectors, which can be found on their respective collection page on Sound.xyz. For these rewards, the responsibility falls on the artist to deliver.



If you have reached out to the artist and they haven't responded within a reasonable amount of time, please reach out to us so we can help connect you two.
We suggest using MetaMask or Rainbow
n Season 2, we launched Collector Presales to give collectors advanced access when artists release new music on Sound (at their discretion).



In Season 4, we launched Custom Allowlists which allow the artists to better customize who gets presale access. To see if you have presale access, navigate to the respective song page and select 'View eligibility'. The artist has discretion over the number of editions that are reserved for existing collectors.
By default each wallet can purchase up to 3 NFTs during the public sale. Qualifying collectors will be able to mint 1 NFT during the presale and 1 NFT during the free sale.
The most likely option is that the drop sold out before your transaction was confirmed.



After being admitted from the queue and initiating your transaction, we wait 45 seconds for a transaction confirmation before admitting another user from the queue (in order to prevent low gas settings or slow transactions from blocking other buyers). If the drop sells out before your transaction is confirmed, your transaction will fail.



We recommend that you avoid lowering your gas settings to ensure that your transaction completes within the 45 second window.
