SOUNDEXCHANGE GETS MORE USER-FRIENDLY

SoundExchange has updated its SXDirect portal to provide music creators with increased control and transparency into their royalty accounts through greater self-service.

The update significantly expands the tools available to rights owners, enabling them to manage overlapping claims and upload new sound recordings directly into the system.

An Overlaps & Disputes tool notifies rights owners when other parties make competing ownership claims, enabling them to resolve overlaps as they occur. The Submit Recordings tool provides rights owners with a dashboard in SXDirect where they can add new sound recordings by providing the International Standard Recording Code  and related metadata.

“Music creators deserve to be paid fairly and accurately, and these new capabilities ensure they receive their royalties faster, too,” said SoundExchange CEO Michael Huppe.

Other new features on the portal include Associated Recordings, a display of all sound recordings currently associated with the music creator’s account and the claim percentage for each track; Search & Claim, a way to search SoundExchange’s database that have not yet been associated with an rights owner-provided ISRC; and Upload History.

“The targeted use of automation gives music creators greater control of their accounts through self-service,” SoundExchange COO Jonathan Bender said. “In this way we ensure that the business of music keeps up with the pace of their creativity.”
