Recording Information Notification (RIN) Standard

On Oct. 10th, 2016, DDEX announced the completion of the long-awaited Recording Information Notification standard (RIN), addressing the need to restore sound recording metadata (credits, liner notes, artwork) in the age of digital distribution.

Avid Pro Tools® with Sound Credit Tracker Plug-in
Avid Pro Tools® with Sound Credit Tracker Plug-in

Sound Credit Tracker by Soundways, is a DAW plug-in that implements the RIN standard and allows users to enter and track performer and recording credits as they happen. Using the DDEX standard, the plug-in stores the metadata in a small, .RIN XML file, to be included and passed along with the project session files.

Ten years in the making, the RIN format comprises an XML file that standardizes the metadata describing all aspects of a recording project and sound recording. RIN is designed for Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) manufacturers to enable their users to capture and store essential metadata in a standard form at the point of creation of a musical work and/or sound recording.

Maureen Droney, Managing Director at The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing (and a key member of the RIN Working Group) stated “RIN will facilitate crediting, ensuring that performers, producers, recording engineers are properly identified and paid for their contributions.”

Wall Between Us (demo, ’90) Download Available

Originally released on the soon-to-be-discontinued Apple Music Connect platform, I’ve made “Wall Between Us (demo, ’90)” available for download for the first time on Bandcamp (the platform that powers download.mikeshupp.com on this site. Here’s the original release info:

Recently came across this demo of one of my earliest songs… recorded in 1990 with my good friends Ralph Warnock and Ema, at Ema’s Ikhaya Studios (the “version 1.0” location, in Herndon, VA). Beautifully recorded and mixed at the time by Ema on his Tascam 388 and mastered to DAT, those master tapes vanished, unfortunately, long ago; I have captured to digital here from this last remaining, well-worn cassete dub, via my Nakamichi MR-1 Pro cassette deck, into 96 kHz / 32-bit-float Pro Tools® session audio (cassette dropouts and all…)

Mike Shupp: Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keyboards
Ema: Drum programming
Recorded and Mixed by Ema at Ikhaya Studios, Spring 1990, Herndon, VA
Words and Music by Mike Shupp (c) 1990 Workplace Music (BMI)
(c) 1990 Private Mind Records

ISRC: US-PM4-16-00001
upc: 615824001654 | catalog: PMR-400016
