How to Submit Your Music
You're a musician with music tracks that you want the world to hear. This page tells you how to go about doing that with OSRecords. Uploading music tracks is free and easy. You may also offer one or more of your tracks for sale.
Start by creating an account - click the Artists->Login submenu or click here. You will have to supply your performing name (or your band's name) and a password. Make sure you remember your password as you will need it again in the future.
After you have entered your details, click the login button and you will see another page, entitled Confirm New Artist, which asks you to confirm your password and to supply your email address. This is only so that OSRecords can contact you - we don't share your email address with anyone else. When you've entered the details, click the confirm button and you will get the Showcase Maintenance page. You can then start uploading your music.
Logging InIf you have previously created an account and you want to update the content then all you have to do is click the Artists->Artist Login submenu, supply your name and password, and you will see the showcase maintenance page. Remember to log out after you are finished.
Showcase MaintenanceThis page allows you to create, update, and delete items from your showcase and to view statistics on plays.
- Maintain Profile
Use this option to create and update your profile - you can use some HTML tags to make it look prettier. You are restricted to the following HTML tags: <P>,<BR>,<TABLE>,<TR>,<TD>,<A>,<IMG> and scripts are not allowed. Remember to add closing tags as some browsers get upset when they're not present. Use the review button to try out your profile in its display format. We strongly recommend that you don't put in any personal information, such as your email or postal address - many web crawlers look for these and add them to spam email lists.
- Add Track
Use this option to upload a new mp3 track. You can upload only mp3 tracks at the moment. You have to fill in some details about the track and it's worth thinking carefully about these as they will be seen by listeners. We try to keep the genres list short so that listeners won't be confused but if you feel the genre you need isn't there, assign your track to the closest genre and contact us with the genre you would like to see added. If we add the genre then you can reassign your track to it. Use the commit button to upload the track and its associated data when you have filled in the details.
- Maintain Track
This option is a bit like Add Track. It allows you to change the details of an existing track - everything except its name can be changed. You don't need to resend the track, or the sample or the icon - these can be left blank. Again you need to use the commit button to upload the changes to OSRecords.
With this control you can view the number of times listeners have played your tracks. There are different timescales to allow you to review both the short and long term trends.
Use this option to view your sales figures. Select a date range and click Continue to get an analysis of the tracks you have sold.
You may change your password at any time by using the Change Password option.
Finally, always remember to log out after you have finished your session!
