Editing Metadata Follow

Enter metadata for each file

You will be able to configure track or video information for each of the digital products in your Topspin account. Metadata (such as your artist name, track title, and album artwork) is automatically written to tracks when fans download. Files uploaded to your account will show up in your Products tab. Click on each file to edit meta-data for that individual track. This information will be surfaced in media players such as iTunes.

Add album art

Towards the top of your Product page, you'll see the Artwork section. Your image carousel will display, containing all images uploaded to your account. Simply drag one or more images to associate them with this specific product. Save the panel by clicking the button at the bottom-right of the Artwork section.

If you have created a digital package containing multiple files, make sure to set artwork for each individual track inside. This will ensure that the artwork and metadata is written to each song or video upon fan download.

When using this file in a Streaming Player, the first image set for each track will be the artwork that will display during playback.

Edit multiple files simultaneously

It is possible to edit multiple audio files in bulk if many of your files have similar data. To edit multiple tracks, select 'Audio Tracks' in the 'View' drop-down. You will find that a "Batch Edit Metadata" button will appear when this file type is selected.

Select the files you would like to edit, and then click the Batch Edit Metadata button. A form will open, allowing you to enter information that will be applied across all selected files.

Upload Apple Lossless files to preserve metadata

Apple Lossless files will preserve pre-existing metadata, and the information associated with each track, including album art, will be imported into Topspin. You will find the existing track information entered into the metadata section of each audio track within your Products page.

If you are working with another type of lossless file, you'll be able to use iTunes to convert your files to Apple Lossless, and edit the metadata within iTunes if you prefer.

To convert your files to Apple Lossless, go into the Preferences > General > Import Settings and set conversion to Apple Lossless.
