Soundiiz is doing a matching process between your source and the destination catalog.
That means we are looking at the destination catalog to find and match a similar track by retrieving source metadata from your playlists, for example (title, artist...).
With an average of 95% matching rate, Soundiiz will mostly find correspondence if existing on the destination catalog. But what about when we didn't find when we made a bad match? For example, if we did not picked the exact same version or same album as you want.
Matching Rule system
The matching rule system is a simple and efficient solution to specify your correspondence between two tracks on music services. Once your rule has been set up, Soundiiz will use it in your transfers and synchronizations instead of the default matching Soundiiz process.
You can create a new matching rule directly in your user setting at any time:
- Go to your User settings in the top left of the interface
- Select Matching Rules in tabs
- And finally, use the button Create a Matching rule or New Rule
- Choose the type of element you want to match (Tracks / Albums / Artists)
- Search and complete your rule creation
You can easily select the platform where to look attended find the element you want by:
- For Tracks
- Title - Artist / URL / ISRC
- For Albums
- Title - Artist / URL / UPC
- For Artists
- Name / URL
You can also choose the option "This is not an existing Track/Album/Artist on ..." to force the non-matching of this element on the targeted service. That could be great if Soundiiz is doing a not-right matching by default.
Please contact us if you do not see any results while searching for an element.
Be aware that a matching rule for a specific element to a particular platform can only be set once. You can then update it and delete it at any time.
