How To Move To RouteNote From Another Music Distributor

If you’re thinking of joining RouteNote from another digital music distributor this guide will show you just how easy it is and the benefits you get when you distribute music through RouteNote.

How do I move my music to RouteNote?
  1. Head to routenote.com and create an account – it’s quick and easy.
  2. Click “Create New Release” and enter the details for your single, EP or album and which stores you want to put them on. (If you already have a UPC and ISRC code for your release you can copy this over and you’ll keep information such as Spotify statistics.)
  3. Once you’ve uploaded your music and sent your release for moderation you will have to make sure that you’ve removed your release(s) from sale from your previous distributor.
  4. Once you’ve uploaded your release(s) to RouteNote and notified your previous distributor to remove them you will be moderated and up on stores in no time!

You need to make sure you’ve removed your music from your previous distributor if you’re re-uploading a release with us as duplicate releases on stores can lead to the complete removal of your release by stores. If you want to keep some releases on your old distributor and use RouteNote for new releases you can – the choice is all yours.

Why should I choose to distribute my music through RouteNote?
  • It’s Free! – With RouteNote you can distribute you music to our many partners with no upfront costs. You keep 85% of all the royalties with no hidden costs, it’s that straightforward.
  • Premium Offering – At RouteNote we want you to be in control and choose what works for you. That’s why we offer a separate premium model (see below) with which you keep 100% of royalties. You can easily switch between free and Premium anytime.
  • Store Partners – RouteNote works with the biggest stores and music streaming services. Send your music worldwide on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, Google Play Music, Deezer and many more!

  • Global – No matter where you are in the world we can distribute your music.
  • Free ISRCs and UPC/EANs – When you create a new release we’ll create an ISRC and UPC/EAN code for physical and digital release free, worldwide.
  • Referrals – If you refer someone to sign up to RouteNote you can receive 2% of their earnings. That 2% comes out of RouteNote’s 15% cut and doesn’t affect the other artists royalties in any way.
What’s the differences between RouteNote’s free and Premium distribution?

Our free model is just that – free! Release as much music as you want on any of our store partners as you like. You keep 85% of all earnings made.

With our Premium model you can choose to pay a small yearly fee and keep 100% of all your earnings on that release. Here’s how much it costs for different releases:

Singles – $10

EP – $20

Album – $30

Extended Album – $45

You can easily switch your individual releases between free and Premium at any time without any additional fees.

    For example: I am using Routenote now and then I want to move to another distributor later in the future..will all our music on all platforms distributed by ‘Routenote’ be deleted? And what should I do if I want to move to another distributor without all my music being removed from platforms and causing no effect on my artist page? Will there be any confusion if I change my distributor? How can I upload to the same artist page even after changing my distributor? Will the songs on our artist page be released twice?

    Should I delete my account from Routenote before changing to another distributor such that there is not any confusion…and in that case will my songs be removed from all the platforms?

    Hello, you can get in touch with our support team at any time to arrange the takedown of any of your releases. You will need to make sure when uploading a release to a new distributor that the release has been taken down from our side. You can either take down and re-upload releases individually or ask for your entire catalog to be taken down.
