Releases
Releases are a collection of Track Version Files (Masters / Instrumentals / Acapellas), such as a playlist or an album, that can be shared. If you are unfamiliar with the Track Version File terminology, please click the link referenced in this paragraph.

Adding tracks

In order to add Track Version Files to a release, click the "Add Tracks" button and a side bar listing all tracks in your catalog will appear. By default, when clicking on a track in this sidebar, it'll add the Master file to the release. However, any Track Version File associated to your Track can replace it (i.e. an acapella file or instrumental).

Services

UPC Scan

Encore can utilize the UPC code corresponding to a release and automatically search for streaming links from Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer. Support for other streaming services will be scheduled for a future release of Encore.
