Who uses AudioSalad?

Can I manage my metadata with AudioSalad?

  • Absolutely! Managing your metadata along side your media assets is the very core of AudioSalad. Once your catalogue of releases is configured in AudioSalad, the metadata (and media assets) can be exported, shared in a number of ways, providing improved workflow and operations.

What file formats are supported?

  • AudioSalad supports MP3, WAV, HD WAV (MFiT), AIFF and FLAC as the core audio media. In addition, via the B2B portal you can host, archive and share Word docs, PDF’s, video (including HD video), text files, music production files (Ableton Live, Protools etc.) and more.

Can AudioSalad provide Direct To Fan (D2F) eCommerce functionality?

  • AudioSalad has strong ecommerce integration via our Shopify App (AudioSalad App for Shopify) and our Drupal Module. Our clients use both the AudioSalad App for Shopify and our Drupal Module to provide D2F (Direct To Fan) ecommerce for physical and digital releases.

Can AudioSalad create royalty reports and statements?

  • AudioSalad provides sales reporting when used in conjunction with a connected eCommerce system for D2F, such as Shopify or Drupal. AudioSalad does not aggregate sales reports from DSP’s. For that we recommend you look at OTTO, Counterpoint or SR1.

How does AudioSalad deliver content?

  • AudioSalad can deliver metadata (with corresponding media assets) in multiple XML based formats, including those created by various services such as Spotify, Amazon as well as various DDEX specifications. In addition, AudioSalad can export track and release metadata as CSV for direct import into a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers.

Do I need my own direct deals for delivery to DSPs?

  • Yes. AudioSalad is not a Distributor/Aggregator – we provide digital delivery services as one part of our functionality suite. In order to use AudioSalad for digital delivery you will need to have your own direct deals with the DSPs (Digital Service Providers) you want to deliver content to. As an independent label or artist, we recommend that you start the process of forming these relationships through joining the Merlin Network

How much does AudioSalad Cost?
