If you’re a Symphonic client, you already know how dope our SMS is. Our Symphonic Management System has tons of features available for our clients to make their lives easier every day. From the ability to split payments with ease, access in-depth analytics, and so much more, here’s a break down of some of the coolest tech tools we have available right now…
10 Symphonic Tech Features You Should Be Using in 2024
Let’s face it, moving your catalog over to a new distributor can be a major headache… That’s why we’re stoked to have created an easy to use tool that makes this process easier than ever. With TransferTrack™, our patented music analytics technology, you can seamlessly transfer your catalog over to Symphonic. This tool will bring in your metadata directly from Spotify while maintaining your streaming history, playlist placements, revenue, and more. All you have to do is enter a Spotify link or UPC and you will see your data appear instantaneously within our system.
With TransferTrack, you benefit from things like:
- Easy file retrieval, stress-free transfer process.
- Say goodbye to manually entering extensive metadata.
- Keep your playlist counts intact during the entire transfer.
- Less chance for errors and faster uploads than ever.
- Seamlessly move your music collection to Symphonic’s platform without disruptions.
- No need to re-enter data on older releases, which can be a very long and painstaking process.
We’ll start tracking analytics data (streams, TikTok videos, etc.) once the old releases are brought over, so no need to check multiple places to see how your catalog is performing. You supply the audio files, and we’ll match everything up for you.
Our SplitShare feature makes the difficult task of sharing revenue automatic and easy. All you have to do is invite your collaborators. Once they accept the invitation, they can either create a new account or pick from their existing accounts with us.
Once they’re enrolled, they’ll automatically receive their share of your label’s royalties each month directly to their SymphonicMS account every month. Along with analytics access, too. Your collaborators can see breakdowns by partner, territory, and tracks to add further transparency.
No stress, no mess.
Ever wonder what creators and videos on platforms like TikTok and YouTube are using your music? Wonder no more. Symphonic’s UGC analytics helps our clients track measurable success on TikTok and YouTube (via Content ID). Not to brag… but we’re also the only distributor to offer this level of UGC analytics.
This one’s a big one. With us, you get access to TikTok analytics you can’t find anywhere else.
- While view counts get a lot of attention, it’s video creations that actually drive royalties on TikTok. Our proprietary analytics makes the distinction between views and creations, and also shows the number of likes, comments and shares a video generated.
- Ever wonder which track of yours is being used most in TikTok videos and how many views those videos have gotten? Now you can easily see that data for the top five tracks, artists, and territories.
This new feature helps artists, managers, and indie labels track measurable success on TikTok. We’re stoked to be able to offer it before anyone else.
📝 Fun Fact: Symphonic is the only distributor in the world to offer this feature.
The Streams analytics feature in the SymphonicMS provides daily stream data across your entire catalog, all in one place. The feature currently includes data from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, and Pandora. // Learn how to navigate to this feature by clicking here.
As soon as logging into the SymphonicMS, there’s a new playlist card that shows the Top 5 Apple Music and Spotify playlists by streams across your account.
Clicking on a playlist from this carousel will open up the new playlist detail page where you can see details like the total number of placements you have on the playlist, the number of followers, and total tracks. In addition, you get access to two graphs that show where your track lies within the playlist. (for example, 5 out of 50), the streams over time, and your tracks position over time.
With this feature, you, as the account owner, can invite team members into your Symphonic account with designated roles. These roles determine what level of access each account member has within your account.
Need someone to only view and handle your Royalty accounting duties? You can do that. Want an intern to handle your release creation and inventory management? You can do that, too. // Want to try it out? Click here to learn how.
