Whether or not you can also use Songtrust will depend on your deal with Audiam.
If you have entered a previous deal regarding your publishing rights, this may cause conflict with Songtrust. It is important that you know whether Audiam is acting as your publisher, or is just representing your recordings.
If you are using Audiam and own your sound recordings, you can make submissions for monetization on the sound recording (master) only. Songtrust can then monetize on behalf of your compositions, and there will be no conflicts.
We believe that we provide the most advanced and accurate YouTube publishing administration for songwriters. We access the most territories. We also provide a feed of videos that help you identify content that contains your compositions, and allow you to assert claims. Using Songtrust for comprehensive royalty collection (including YouTube) is the best way to ensure that all of your music publishing royalties are collected worldwide.
