How can I make money on my tracks by distributing them to streaming services?

Streaming services pay every time someone listens to your music. This comes in either a fixed fee per stream or on a pro rata basis.

Am I giving RouteNote any rights to my music?

RouteNote only obtains the rights to distribute your music on your behalf. Artists always keep 100% ownership and rights.

Can I submit a Digital Booklet with my release?

Yes you can. However there are some things you must bear in mind. Most importantly Digital Booklets can only be uploaded at the same time as the album and not afterwards.

You may have noticed that Digital Booklets are not a standard part of the Routenote infrastructure. This means that when you upload your release that it is very important to coordinate with a member of the Routenote staff. So that we know to upload your release with your booklet which you will have to email to us separately.

There are some restrictions that you should be
aware of.

Digital Booklets must:

* Be in PDF format (.pdf)
* 72 dpi minimum
* Have Width 11 inches x height 8.264 inches
* RGB colour formatted
* Minimum 4 pages in length
* Embed all fonts and images
* All images full-bleed. No negative space surrounding the document

It should go without saying that you should only include images that you legally own.

Bear in mind that your Digital Booklet will be viewed horizontally.

Can I submit an Artist Image for my iTunes?
