We have rolled out some new updates to the ever evolving SymphonicMS this past month and there are tons more tools in the works! We’re continuing to forge some very interesting partnerships and will be placing these partnerships for easy access via the SymphonicMS dashboard. Alast, here are this month’s updates and stay tuned for many more!
Featured Release Form Updated
The Featured Release form has now been updated to information that is relevant and being requested from our partners. In particular, iTunes and Beatport require various types of information and by filling out these newly updated forms, you’ll be able to provide us more detail that will greatly improve your chances of being featured across various platforms. Fill out the form and provide as much information as you can and we’ll take care of the rest. We won’t send you a pesky spreadsheet like some other lazy distribution companies out there.
Stem Distribution Integrated
We’re very happy to announce that we have integrated two Stem focused partners. The news of the launch is available here. For every distribution client, immediately upon submitting a release they will be able to select Indiloop or Mashup (and/or both) for distribution of their stems. Quite revolutionary and will be a partnership we’ll continue to evolve and improve!
Soundcloud Whitelisting + Takedown Requests
We’ve added a feature to SymphonicMS that will enable you to fill out a form to send in a request to get Soundcloud profiles of your artists and record label(s) whitelisted as well as assist if your material is ever infringed upon. Symphonic Distribution has access to Soundcloud’s Content Management System entitled “Deck”. Through this management system, we’re able to whitelist Soundcloud profiles of your artists as well as your label(s). In addition if your material is infringed upon, you can send us notifications to issue an immediate takedown if someone has stolen your material. This page is available via the new “+More” menu item on the SymphonicMS that will grow into displaying more third party tools and partnerships that will give you more offerings for your benefit.
Sample Pack Distribution Integrated
In addition to Stem Distribution, we’ve created a webpage within SymphonicMS that explains how you can create and get a sample pack distributed to our exclusive partnership with Sounds To Sample and Beatport Sounds. The process is at times tedious but a great outlet for those interested in focusing on sample packs. The webpage is listed under “Content”
Promo Mailer Header Excerpt Update
We’ve made a quick update to the Promo Mailer that now enables you to edit the header message at the top of the mailer. We have a HUGE list of updates to the Promo Mailer that we’ll begin to make live over the course of the next couple of months and we’re very excited to see this tool be one that isn’t just about sending promos, but one that can help you gain revenue.
Inventory Export By Artist
As a request directly from our record label partners, we have now enabled you the access to Export Inventory by each artist you distribute. This is instrumental if you own the publishing rights to your material as well as if you need to communicate to your artists their UPC and ISRC codes.
Milk Music Integrated
We’ve integrated Milk Music which is Samsung’s official streaming platform. Powered by Slacker, clients wont have to do anything extra to get their music onto the platform and we’re excited to be able to deliver to this platform which recently made it’s launch!
Selected Music Store Integrated
Another new integration is that of Selected Music Store which aims to be selective EDM Specific brand that picks and chooses uploads and only features quality driven material as curated by their experts.
Public Relations Direct Link
Immediately upon submitting a release, you will see a “PR” app icon that will take you to our Public Relations page. We have partnered up with great organizations that provide direct promotion of your music to many different outlets and we’ve seen some great results!
