In the digital world, capturing data in the studio is more important than ever before. This includes your credits, contributor names, technical information, and all versions of recording titles. Without this data, payments can get missed, at home and abroad! The challenges to collecting this data and ensuring it flows throughout the whole supply chain are being addressed by a consortium of media companies working with DDEX (, an international organization standardizing the music supply chain through the creation of common formats for information communication and the support of metadata improvement initiatives.

This workshop, in collaboration with The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing, will introduce you to new data standards, a metadata collection application, and information about how these will impact you in the future. Please join us for this important discussion. Don’t be left behind!
