Master tracks in either stereo or mono. We also strongly encourage the inclusion of stems such as instrumentals and acapellas as they are highly valued by our users.
Stems are premixed groupings of individual tracks like "Drums", “Keys” or “Vocals” rather than the raw individual multitracks. We can accept delivery of full multitracks but can't guarantee that every single track will make it onto the service - try to avoid isolated effect channels, individual drum hits and other short one-shots.
Please ensure that stems are normalized as if they are too quiet, they may be rejected by our media processor.
Note: We do NOT accept stems sourced from royalty-free sample packs or certain preset sounds that are prohibited from being resold.
- Download link from e.g. Dropbox, Disco, Wetransfer. If the link is restricted or requires an invite, please ensure that email@example.com is added before sending the link.
- We are working on creating an ingestion system that will support DDEX deliveries via SFTP. If you are interested in delivering in this way then please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A well organized and easy to understand folder structure ensures we can ingest your music quickly. We strongly recommend using the following logic:
File naming convention
NOTE: For stems, the file name needs to specify what the actual instrument is. Please do not just use terms like lead, main, melody, arp etc.
NOTE: File names should not include Key or any special characters as this may lead to problems ingesting them.
Audio file requirements
Minimum Audio spec: 16bit, 44.1kHz
We prefer WAV or AIFF files but can accept uncompressed FLAC files.
We do not accept MP3s.
NOTE: WE DO NOT ACCEPT TRACKS THAT INCLUDE SAMPLES.
Do not send any audio files containing samples (whether licensed or otherwise) sourced from other songs, films, tv-shows, games, or from sample packs that are not allowed to be re-sold. We also cannot accept cover versions.
File format: JPEG / PNG
Dimensions: Square image (512x512 px minimum). Non square images will not be ingested and will not display on the site.
Every record label and artist gets their own profile page on Tracklib, which can be customized with a label logo/artist image and a short bio.
NOTE: All images must be owned or in the public domain. For formatting reasons, please keep bios brief and do not include links. We may edit bios to ensure they display properly on the site.
In order to ensure we have all the metadata we need to properly ingest your music, please use our metadata collection template. You will need to either make a copy or download the template in order to use it.
File format: XLSX, CSV
We do not accept pdf, numbers, doc/rtf/txt
This is the data we require:
NOTE: If for some reason you don’t have ISRCs assigned to your songs, we encourage you to register with your local agency so you can assign your own.
Performance royalty split percentage
NOTE: We require licensing agreements for all interested parties linked to a work. If we do not have an agreement in place with a writer or publisher attached to a song or album, we will not be able to make it available on our site.
NOTE: Our ingestion system is optimized for music where there is a single master licensor and single publishing licensor. Music that has multiple rightsholders on either the master or publishing side may take longer to ingest as it requires a greater degree of manual work.
This is additional data that helps with discovery and visibility as well as where and how your music is presented on our site.
