Understanding the Bulk Uploader

The bulk uploader allows you to easily and quickly upload your catalog in bulk and decide what to do with the individual recordings directly within the uploader.

By default, a song will be created out of each recording and a Release (link to Understanding Releases) will be created for any recording that has an associated Album in the metadata. Additionally, you can add any recording or recordings to an existing song already in your account or you can group recordings together to create a new song out of them.
