Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions from Amp creators
What is the Amp Creator Fund?
We’re launching the Creator Fund to support Amp’s community and foster their creativity by offering something in return for dedication to their craft. We’ll continue to explore further monetization opportunities for Amp creators — this is our first step in giving back. The Creator Fund supports creators big and small, regardless of background or experience level, for their hard work in creating engaging, entertaining content.

Each month, we’ll reach out to selected creators with reward amounts and instructions on how to claim. Rewards will generally be determined based on listener engagement and show performance metrics.

To be eligible for monthly rewards, all you need to do is start creating. No application is needed; any creator who meets the eligibility criteria has the opportunity to earn from the Creator Fund. Here are some best practices to help you get started.

What is Amp Crew, and how can it help me?
Amp Crew is the official show of Amp and hosted by real employees! They have shows every Tuesday and Thursday, where you can listen to creator interviews, call in and ask questions, and connect with other creators. Follow Amp Crew here.
How can I improve my audio quality?
Audio quality on the host and callers side is reduced when playing music for latency reduction. However, listeners receive your show and the songs you play in a higher fidelity.

Please make sure you are in an area with good internet connectivity. If you’re a listener having audio quality issues, or have a different issue not addressed above, here’s what to do:
  • If you’re using headphones, please check your connection
  • If the headphones are wireless, please ensure that they are charged and close to the device
  • If issues persist, report a bug by using the chat bot
Tip for creators: While Bluetooth is recommended for a solid, hands-free experience, a wired connection may offer higher quality audio.
