Q1 2011 SoundExchange Reports Done and Done!May 2nd, 2011 by Phil Johnson
Once again, thanks to lots of hard work by lots of people, a not-so-minor miracle has been worked and the latest batch of quarterly reports (for Q1 2011) have been delivered to SoundExchange !
This latest round, submitted on Friday afternoon, covered 314 stations, 500(!) distinct content channels, and 13,352,321 (music) aggregate tuning hours. It was yet another monumental effort of cat herding, data crunching and generally turning water into wine.
A big thanks goes to all who submitted data and to our most excellent tech folks here who crunch all that data to compile the statistics and reports. Well done, all!
For those who don’t already know, you can download your actual report (or reports, as there is a separate report for each channel) we generated and submitted on your behalf directly from Composer Pro or Basic.
- Just log in an go to View Reports under the SoundExchange Dashboard.
- There you’ll see a list of the reporting status for each of your channels for the current and past quarters.
- Scroll down to Q1 2011 (or whatever past quarter with a status of Complete) and click on the quarter in the left hand column; that’s the file that we generate from your data and send to SoundExchange.
Feel to free to download these reports and save for your records. Also, if I may, go ahead and print them out; these reports make for fantastic beach reading! Later this year we’re hoping to release e-reader compatible versions…
Of course, the best part of getting a round of reports done is that it means that it’s time to start all over again, this time for the Q2 2011 reports! Those reports, of course, cover April 1 through June 30 and the deadline for getting your data to us at NPR Digital Services is Friday, July 8, 2011. We are now ready, willing and able to accept your Q2 data.
Thanks again and keep up the great work, everyone!
