ISRC Coding: How Artists get paid digitally

posted by 12 Mr. FTC -

What is an ISRC?

The ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) is the international identification system for sound recordings and music video recordings. Each ISRC is a unique and permanent identifier for a specific recording, independent of the format on which it appears (CD, audio file, etc) or the rights holders involved. Only one ISRC should be issued to a track, and an ISRC can never represent more than one unique recording.

ISRCs are widely used in digital commerce by download sites and collecting societies. An ISRC can also be permanently encoded into a product as its digital fingerprint. Encoded ISRC provide the means to automatically identify recordings for royalty payments.

93.1 the Beat and all iHeart Radio Stations must have your ISRC code in order to enter your songs in our database.

Learn more about our ISRC Codes and how record labels use them to track your progress by registering for our 93.1 Music Combine March 24th at the Tim Faulker Art Gallery
