We’ve had a lot going on behind the scenes; from being acquired to re-acquiring the business. While we sorted out a few kinks, we chose to suspend service for several months this year. Now, we’re excited to share what’s going on now and what’s to come.

We’ve been hard at work to expand TuneRegistry’s features to bring you the best platform possible to address your rights management needs. As you’ll see, existing components are flowing much better and we’ve added a few new features. Here’s what we’ve done in the last year:

  • Metadata delivery to Gracenote, MediaNet, ACRCloud, Crunch Digital, Exactuals-RAI via our redesigned Registrations module.
  • Release-level delivery to SoundExchange via the US Release Registration registration.
  • Ability to input and register sub-publishing in multiple territories.
  • Expanded U.S. Song Registrations so you can deliver directly to Harry Fox Agency and Loudr.
  • Ability to select different Artist roles, such as "guest" or "remixer."
  • Easy process to set up cover songs for cover artists.
  • Expanded list of genres and formats (now including cassettes for those embracing the retro mixtape resurgence).
  • Eliminated the pop-ups when editing components of a Song, Recording, or Release.
  • Removed locking of blank fields, so that registrations can be submitted in a more flexible order.
  • Updated error messaging for more accuracy.
  • Made it easier to delete recordings and releases.
  • Changed information request on Song Details page to prevent registrations from getting unnecessarily rejected.
  • Ability to save progress on Registrations.

For the techies who care about what’s going on under the hood, we’ve done the following:

  • Overhauled and consolidated code to ensure it is cleaner and will be easier to integrate with future partners.
  • Fixed bugs and updated the code to make sure the data we send out is as clean and consistent as possible.
  • Sped up data loading times.

Beginning next month, we will enable annual billing that will save you money, and will start supporting larger catalogs through our Enterprise Plan.

The Enterprise Plan grants users exclusive access to a database that carries up to 100,000 songs, unlimited recordings and releases, 5 additional sub-catalogs that enables colleagues/clients to manage their own databases, API integration, and year-round phone support. In addition to that, the plan allows for unlimited users to access your catalog - a feature that we deem necessary for record companies, musicpublishers, and management companies to properly navigate and administer their rights. The plan will be free for the first year for select partners.

On December 1, 2018, we will eliminate the free Catalog plan. Users who want to continue to access their data in our system will need to upgrade to a paid account before that date.

And lastly, we will be hosting regular webinars starting next week. You will be able to sign up for a session here.

With that being said, we hope that you are happy with the modifications that were made and are soon to come. As always, we are here to serve the needs of the independent music community.

If you have questions or suggestions, send them our way via chat, email or online.
