Soundiiz is doing a matching process between your source and the destination catalog.
That means by retrieving source metadatas your playlists for example (like title, artist...) we are looking on the destination catalog to found and match a similar track.
With an average of 95% matching rate, Soundiiz will mostly found a correspondence if existing on the destination catalog. But what about when we didn't found it or when we made a bad matching ? For example if we have picked not the exact same version or same album as you want.
Matching Rule system
The matching rule system is a simple and an efficient solution to specify yourself 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 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 at it and found 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 non sense matching by default.
If you are not seeing any results here while you are searching an element, please contact us.
Be aware that a matching rule for a specific element to a specific platform can only been set once. You can then update it and delete it at any time.
