Music catalogs that migrate from an existing online catalog management system can use their existing data to get started on OTIS very quickly.
Download your metadata spreadsheet from your existing catalog management system.
Download the OTIS metadata template XLSX.
Open both your original spreadsheet and the OTIS template.
Copy your existing metadata, column by column, and paste into the appropriate field in the OTIS spreadsheet. It’s simple, but we’re happy to do this for you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of it.
Upload your spreadsheet in XLSX format to OTIS.
Upload your WAV/AIF and MP3 files to OTIS with our bulk uploader. You’ll receive an email when each batch is complete.
Limit batches to approximately 15 WAV/AIF or 100 MP3’s.
After uploads complete, check out the Manage Audio tab. Upload any missing audio files.
Use our Mood and Genre Maps or Manual Metadata entry to tag helpful metadata such as genre, mood, cue type, tempo and rights holder info.
Each time you log into your OTIS Dashboard, you’ll see “Daily Metadata” tasks that help you to complete helpful metadata tasks for your catalog in minutes a day.
