SourceAudio Detect Interface Tour

Here’s an exclusive look at the in-depth reporting tools that SourceAudio Detect subscribers leverage to ensure proper reporting for all their tracks that hit the air on our monitored stations.

SourceAudio Content ID Panel 1

Real-Time Detections

Data arrives in the real-time detections panel as soon as your watermarked tracks hit the air.

1. Use filters to view only detections that apply to your dropdown selection. Use the Type drop-down to view only programs, commercials, promos (such as network promotional content), or matches that have been confirmed—more on that below. Use the Network drop-down to view only detections from a certain network. Use the Date fields to view only detections from a given date range.

2. Export all the detections visible on your current filter settings using the Export Current View button.

3. Click the camera icon under the Clip header on any real-time detection listing to view or download an audio-visual clip of the track as it was synced on the broadcast, and use this clip to unequivocally confirm exactly when and where your track aired. These videos are also available with even more data in the Identified Programs & Ads panel.

SourceAudio Content ID Panel 2

Identified Programs & Ads

Real-time data appears in the Identified Programs & Ads panel 3-4 weeks after it’s initially detected, during which time its metadata is optimized for accuracy by our AI algorithms. This page of “confirmed” detections features the same powerful filters from the Real-Time page and even more data.

1. Every program detection lists a ready-made cue sheet, every commercial detection lists ASCAP and BMI claim forms filled out with the relevant details to verify the detection, and both commercial and promo detections list downloadable spreadsheet logs of the detection data.

2. Click the number on any line listing indicating how many detections occurred in the recent airings of a given program/commercial/promo, and you can view just those detections with videos on each line listing as seen below.

3. Click the track count on any program/commercial/promo listing to view a line listing of data for each unique track. Click the Detections number on any of these indented listings to see detections listed in the same manner as shown above. Click the camera icon under Clip on any of these indented listings to view or download the video clip for that specific detection as shown below.

Check for Watermarks in a File

Our watermark identifier allows you to check an audio or video file for any SourceAudio watermarks in a matter of seconds. Just drag and drop the file onto the tester, and all watermarks present in the file are listed according to their associated track. Never worry about missed detections or false positives—each SourceAudio watermark is completely unique.

SourceAudio Content ID Panel 3

SourceAudio Detect monitors all of these networks 24/7, and we’re adding more all the time!

Send Tracks Between SourceAudio Sites for Free with the Agents Tool

Among the various options for getting your tracks to your business partners, the Agents tool is a powerful, reliable, easy-to-use, and cost-effective method for sending to other SourceAudio sites.

Agents Sending vs Syncing

While “synced tracks” can only be edited from the host, and will show up that way anywhere they're synced, tracks that are delivered with the Agents tool are completely separate files; following the delivery there's no connection between the agent-delivered file and the original. The Agents tool creates a copy of their tracks during the sending process and sends the copy to the receiving site. Since the tracks will be a completely separate copy, the metadata of this copy can be edited by the sub-publisher as much as they'd like. 

This is contrary to syncing which “mirrors” tracks over to the receiving site from the hosting site, not allowing for metadata to be edited on the receiving end; the tracks' metadata can only be edited from the original listing. 

How to Use the Agents Tool

To send tracks to a recipient using the Agents tool, start by sending an email to support@sourceaudio.com with the recipient on copy if you’re the sender or the sender on copy if you’re the recipient. Both you and the other party will need to confirm to SouceAudio that you intend to be connected via the Agents tool.

Once SourceAudio confirms you’re connected, head to the Agents tool in the admin panel » File Delivery » Agents » and tick the box for the desired recipient. Fill in the Browse All bubble, then select the catalogs, labels, or albums you'd like to deliver. Click into a catalog to see the labels within it, and click into a label to see the albums within that. Add a message at the bottom of the page if you'd like, and then hit send.

Your tracks will be received by the recipient in their admin panel » Upload Import Audio » Agent Music Delivery. They’ll land in this special publishing queue with all the metadata from their original site, and once published, all metadata can be edited.
