Making changes/edits to your release

Once a release has been approved and delivered to retailers, you may find that you need to make edits to it. Within the SymphonicMS, you're able to pull back a release into an editable state using the Edit button. This feature is perfect for bringing older releases up-to-date with newer highlights like contributors, updating territories, or fixing minor metadata mistakes.

Follow these steps to edit your release:

  1. Navigate to Distribute ► Releases
  2. Click on the Submitted Releases tab
  3. Find your release and select the Edit button

Below is a list of edits that won't be able to be made using this feature: 

  • UPCs
  • ISRCs
  • Track re-ordering
  • Adding or removing tracks
  • Label name
  • Catalog Number
  • Removing partners from a release

If you're looking to remove a partner from a release, please reach out to our help desk for assistance. If you want to make any of the other listed changes, you will need to take down your release and re-submit a new one in the SymphonicMS. 

Follow the below steps for taking down your release:

  1. Navigate to Distribute ► Releases
  2. Click on the Submitted Releases tab
  3. Find your release and select the Take down button


Requirements for replacement Releases:

  • A new catalog number will be required along with its metadata and audio files; as per normal guidelines for creating releases on the SymphonicMS. 
  • This release will need a new UPC code.
  • You can re-use the ISRC codes from your tracks on the previous release.
