This will take you to your assets page, which contains all albums that have been saved. Please note that albums are only saved after all information has been included. Each tab will have to be finished before moving to the next one. The "Main info" tab holds all information at the album level. Soundrop accepts Jpeg files with an RGB color space between x and x pixels. Language refers to the language of the metadata itself - Artist name, album title, track title, etc.
Click "Add a title in another language" if your release is also in a non-western alphabet. Only add a new artist name if it hasn't been used in your account before! Please include the release year at the beginning of both of those fields. If this is an album that had previously been released, select "Yes" and include the original UPC barcode. Once all required information has been completed, click "Next" in the bottom right corner to move to the Tracks tab.
Language of Lyrics is the language in which the lyrics are sung. If there are no vocals, please select "Instrumental". If there is any mature language PG or higher , select "Yes" for Explicit lyrics. Lastly, we need to know whether or not the track is a cover song. If it's an original or a work that's in the public domain it's free!
Unsure if your song qualifies for public domain? Click here to find out! Once you've completed adding each track, click "Next" in the bottom right corner to move on to the Publishing tab. Click the track title to open up the publishing form. For public domain you'll want to include the original songwriters and change the publishing to "public domain". If there is original songwriter, you may use "Traditional Song" as the songwriter name. Check out our licensing request tips for more information! This will take you back to the Publishing tab.
Make sure to double-check everything and if it looks correct click "Approve". You can also exclude and limit distribution to particular territories as desired. Please note that our partners will price content on their own scales, but will match as closely to what you set as possible.
Considering that it takes days for delivery to stores after licensing, Soundrop recommends setting a release date at least 4 weeks in advance to provide enough time to get your music licensed, distributed, and ingested into those stores for pre-orders. Once you've finished setting when and where you want distribution, click "Send". Soundrop currently only accepts payments via credit cards. Click "Purchase license s " and your album will be submitted!
It will be displayed in "Processing" with each store listed underneath. Our inspectors will take a look at your album to make sure that it meets the music stores' guidelines and standards. Once they approve it, it will move to "Licensing" for cover songs and then "In delivery". That's it! Click "Assets" to get to work on another release if you have another one ready to go. Curious about sales reporting and getting paid? Click here! How do release dates work? If you don't have a barcode already, that's okay!
Soundrop will generate one at no cost. For originals you'll put in the songwriters and their share percentages. For cover songs, it will open the mechanical license request form. Licensing can take up to 2 weeks to complete, and delivery may take days to all partners. Once your album is delivered, it will move to "Live".
