Getting Started

In the Getting Started category, we answer the most frequently asked questions about distributing, uploading, promoting, and selling music with Distromono.

Does Distromono promote music?

Distromono doesn’t promote music. Our current offer is based on distribution and upload services. However, once you’re in Distromono, you will have access to a set of resources with key tips and best practices to guide you throughout the whole release process: before the release, on the day of release, and after the release. Check out our Monoblog or directly sign up to receive all blog updates!

Does Distromono upload music to TikTok, Instagram, or Facebook?

Yes! Distromono automatically uploads to TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook since these platforms are included in the digital distribution process. You will not have to take any specific action, since the moment your music is available on Spotify, Apple Music, or Amazon Music it becomes automatically available on these platforms as well.

How can I transfer songs from other platforms to Distromono?

Piece o’ cake! To keep all your streaming stats and playlist information you’ll need to make sure you have your audio, video, and ISRCs ready. Don’t worry, we explain everything in detail.

How long does it take to distribute music?

The duration of music distribution will depend on how quickly the DSPs confirm and accept your song for stores. Our recommendation is to plan your releases within at least two weeks to also have the chance to pitch to stores (such as Spotify for Artists and Apple Music for Artists).

What is a URI code and what does it do?

URI is the acronym for Uniform Resource Indicator. In this context, it refers to a resource indicator for Artists, Tracks, Playlists, etc. For example, if you want to make sure that your new single is accurately included in a playlist on release day, sharing your Track URI makes this process quick and easy.

What is Distromono?

Distromono is a digital music distributor that allows you to release unlimited music for a single annual fee. Although when it comes to digital music the difference between music distributor and aggregator is unclear, we prefer to identify with a distributor.

What's the minimum song length that Distromono allows?

If you were planning on releasing a ringtone with the voice of your loved one, we have to stop you right there. Sorry. DSPs don’t accept albums that have an average song length of under 60 seconds. This doesn’t mean that your album cannot contain songs of this length, but you’d then have to make sure to include songs that are way above that to reach the desired average.

Which DSPs are available in Distromono?

You can release music on major streaming platforms, including Spotify, Amazon, Youtube Music, Apple Music, TikTok, Instagram Stories (Facebook), Tidal, Deezer, Shazam, Tencent (QQ Music, Kugou, Kuwo), iTunes, Pretzel, Pandora, Audiomack, AWA (Japan), Anghami, Boomplay (Africa), ClaroMusica, iHeart Radio, JioSaavn (India), JOOX, KKBOX, Medianet/Audible, Mixcloud, Napster, Netease (China), Qobuz, Slacker Radio, Triller (New DSPs will be added as we partner with them)

Will I get feedback from Distromono on my music?

Considering the amount of music that will be uploaded it’s impossible to provide the type of quality feedback we would like. However, we do have an experienced team that is always on the lookout for new talent and if your music is something we can work on, we will reach out.

Can I choose my own prices for my music?

Unfortunately, the digital music streaming model doesn’t allow you to set your own prices, whether you’re using iTunes or any other platform.

Can I contact Distromono directly?

Of course! In fact, we’ve made it easy so you don’t have to leave the platform. Once you have your account, you can reach our support team via Account > Contact Us. Our Distrobot is also there to help solve any commercial questions or doubts.

Can I distribute instrumental music with Distromono?

You can distribute the sound of nature wrapped up in an everlasting euphoria if you wish. I mean, if it’s your music, it’s your life. Now, when it comes to selecting “Language” we recommend that you select one that you, at least, know three words of.

Can I distribute podcasts with Distromono?

No! Sorry. At this time we don’t distribute videos, podcasts, or ringtones.

Can I sell my music on other stores, besides the DSPs offered by Distromono?

Well, it would be pretty funny if we didn’t let you. That’s the whole point of why we started all this, to give independence to artists. It is your song, you know where it belongs.

Can I upload a cover song to Distromono?

Sure, be our guest! But we’re going to get serious for a minute. We firmly ask that you comply with our covers distribution policy.

Can I upload a sound-a-like to Distromono?

That would be a no. DSPs don’t get along with sound-a-likes, cover versions, or tribute songs almost identical to the original. Moreover, anything resembling the artist’s name or brand identity will be rejected. Any practice that misleads the listener’s intention or aim is rejected (and rightly so) by DSPs. And trust us, you don’t want to be that person.

Can I use free samples in my songs?

Of course, there is no problem as long as you make sure that they are free to use and you do not need to pay a license to use them.

Do you accept money or trades to get my music on playlists?

Nope! And if someone asks you for money in exchange for being on playlists it is probably a scam, avoid paying to be on playlists.
