BASEWARE REMOTE

'Baseware Remote' is Beatport’s desktop application that was created to simplify the preparation of your tracks / releases prior to delivery.

'Baseware Remote' collects release metadata, track details, audio files, and artwork, creating a single, easy-to-upload package.  'Baseware Remote' is not a delivery tool; This application is just the first step prior to uploading.
 
NOTE: The Baseware Remote application is being deprecated and is no longer available for download.
If you have the software successfully installed and it's working, the rest of this page can assist you with creating your releases and delivering to us.
If you do NOT have the software installed and need a solution for creating and packaging up your releases, please reach out to your label manager or submissions@beatport.com

'BASEWARE REMOTE' USE:

  • Open the program and see the easy steps to entering your metadata and adding tracks, artwork etc.
  • 'Baseware Remote' creates one folder that collects all the necessary elements in your delivery by converting the metadata to XML and makes our encoding flawless and fast.
  • Once all of the metadata and audio files have been added to the release in Baseware Remote, the application will save this as a folder on your computer, ready for delivery.

By using this application in the future, it will remember frequently added info and become a faster, more efficient way to package your content.
