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.
 
The application download is on the Login page of Baseware (see more information below).

 

'BASEWARE REMOTE' INSTALLATION:

  • Download the application ('Baseware Remote') by visiting> https://baseware.beatport.com (DO NOT LOGIN). Give the page a few seconds to load and wait for the "INSTALL NOW" button to appear to the left of the little satellite dish icon.

 
  • Once the app is installed, 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.
  • Upload the folder created by 'Baseware Remote' by logging into Baseware online and utilizing the 'Content Delivery' tab.

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

 

DELIVERY

Deliveries are required to be received no less than 10 business days before the release date.

 **ALL RELEASES MUST CONTAIN UPC/EAN AND ALL TRACKS MUST CONTAIN ISRC CODES.**

The 'Content Delivery' tab in Baseware will soon be deprecated due to lack of browser support.  In lieu of this, please deliver content directly to Beatport's server via FTP:

host*:  uploads.beatport.com

If you do not currently have credentials to do so please reach out to submissions@beatport.com and we will provide credentials to do so.
