SoundExchange Reporting Services

Written by
Travis Bernard

Creek handles SoundExchange reporting for radio stations around the United States.

This article explains our process, our reporting services, and our pricing.

Reporting, solved.

We solve the reporting headache by giving your station hands-on help tailored to your unique situation.

  1. We personally talk to your station, and determine what you need for SoundExchange compliance.
  2. We go over any emails that you have received from SoundExchange.
  3. We talk about your studio hardware, to find the best ways to retrieve the required data to build reports.
  4. After assembling the required information, we write a reporting plan for your station, and start work.
  5. When your reports are due, just email us, and we will generate any reports that you need. Or, if you have Managed Reporting, we'll take it from here, and let you know when each report is submitted for you!

Technical info needed

In order to produce logs, we will need two major sources of data from your studio:

  • An ongoing data stream of song information, often from an automation system.
  • Stats or log files from your stream.

For more about this, please see our full article here: SoundExchange Studio Requirements

Managed Reporting

This is our We Do Everything service. Just sit back, and let us take care of everything:

  • We will retrieve the streaming counts from your stream provider.
  • We fix any missing song data in your spreadsheets by hand.
  • We submit the monthly and quarterly reports on SoundExchange Licensee Direct.
  • We interface with SoundExchange by email on your behalf, if needed.

Then, all you will need to do is send the $500 minimum fee check to SoundExchange, along with any other fees owed.

Think of Creek as "HR Block" — but for SoundExchange Reporting.
