A TECH UPGRADE AT SOUNDEXCHANGE

SoundExchange has upgraded its technology with a new feature that will create greater efficiency in the exchange of data between record labels and music publishers.

Called the Common Works Registration (CWR) Pre-Fill, it improves the compatibility of the data flowing through SoundExchange’s Music Data Exchange (MDX) application, a centralized system that facilitates the exchange of sound recording and publishing data before recordings are released into the market. The feature integrates CWR data into the MDX workflow, simplifying the data submission process for publishers.

Publishers will now be able to make claims in MDX using pre-populated data from their CWR files. For previously submitted CWR files, publishers can respond to requests for data in less than a minute. Publishers submitting new CWR files will have the ability to respond within 24 hours of submission.

“By empowering labels and publishers to share data with greater ease and efficiency, we are laying the groundwork for improved data and transparency, not only within MDX but the larger music industry,” said Anjula Singh, SoundExchange Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

The upgrade is part of a multiyear effort to leverage data to streamline systems and increase transparency.

To access the new feature, users must have a registered account with MDX and a CWR feed set up within the system. Non-MDX users can request a free MDX account.
