How do I move my music to RouteNote from DistroKid?

If you’re looking to move your music to RouteNote for free distribution or our unbeatable Premium prices then thankfully you can, easily.

We pride ourselves on making music distribution easy and painless for artists everywhere and of every size. If you’re looking to switch from another distributor like DistroKid to RouteNote, we have some tips on how you can make that transfer as easy as possible too.

Arrange removal of your releases

If you’re moving your releases to us, make sure you’ve arranged the removal of those releases with your original distributor. Then when you upload your music to us we can get them back on stores on services as quickly as possible.

Re-use your UPC and ISRC codes

You’ll have been given UPC and ISRC codes for your music when you uploaded it. Keep hold of these and use them again on the same release to retain all your streaming data when your music goes live again. This means that if you’ve racked up the streams on your tracks, they’ll still show the same performance when we get them back online for you.

Choose the plan that suits you

We offer two types of distribution so that all artists can work out the plan that suits them best, because we want everyone to upload their music on their own terms.

Free Distribution offers unlimited distribution to all of our partners at no cost. You keep 85% of all of the earnings you make and can come and go at any time.

Premium Distribution is our paid offering. For a small upfront cost, you can distribute any of your releases worldwide and keep 100% of the revenues your music makes in all stores. It’s only $9.99 after a year to keep your release live on Premium.

You can switch between Free and Premium at any time.

    Do you distribute classical releases to Apple Music ?

    How many days ( processing time ) ?


    I have all the isrc for all tracks ( possible to upload those isrc ) during uploading process ?

    Kindly advise

    Thank you

    Hi Rikori, yes we can upload classical releases to Apple Music and you’ll have the option to input your UPC and ISRCs on upload.

    Question, I was transferring a couple of songs over & I was able to use my UPC code from my original release but I was not allowed to use the same isrc because it said it already gathered that information & makes me use a new isrc with the same upc code. Will this effect my stats being transferred over?

    Hi Riza, if you have the same UPC then stores should recognise your release and apply the streaming data they have stored for your release. Assuming your release has the same metadata as before as well then stores are pretty much guaranteed to be able to recognise your release and add the appropriate data.
