Making changes/updates 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 Update 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 Update button

  4. The release(s) will show up in an Updates tab where you can make your changes and resubmit the release.

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 add or 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.
