LabelGrid Demo Inbox lets you manage all types of files. This page will explain the core functionality.
For incoming demos and misc file uploads from 3rd parties.
Each label under your account gets its own branded upload page where people can upload files directly to the label's Demo Inbox.
Your inbox url will be something like:
mp3, flac, wav, zip, rar, aiff
You can update the background and logo in your Label Image Settings.
Anything uploaded via your Demos Inbox will appear inside LabelGrid under Files > Incoming (Demos) also known as Files Manager inside your LabelGrid Content Panel.
Approve and reject demos that have been sent to you from artists and producers.
This is just like previewing any file. Just go to Files > Incoming Folder and double click on a file row to bring up the preview. The following playable preview layout will appear.
Click the thumbs up button on the preview page. We will pre-fill this form with the sender's name and email as well as a subject line and preset approval message.
You can change the subject and message to your liking and press "send".
Approval message presets can be changed in your label settings.
Click the thumbs down button on the preview page. Use the "Templates" dropdown (aka Message Presets) to choose from "Rejected 1" or "Rejected 2". Take a close look at both screenshots below to see the recommended way to implement Rejected 2 for your own needs.
Template name: Rejected 1 (hard reject) Purpose: Kindly tell the sender that you are not interested.
Template Name: Rejected 2 (soft reject) Purpose: Kindly tell the sender to send you more music, but that this particular demo is not what you are looking for.
There are tools to allow you to do special things like extracting zip files, converting WAV from 16bit to 24bit, and sharing your files using secret links.
While viewing the Incoming (Demos) folder, choose "WAVS" and then select a file in the list that you want to assign. Click Tools > Assign to release. A popup will appear asking you to select the track you want to assign to. Select the track you want to assign to and click save. This operation depends on you already having the release meta-data created using the Album Editor.
