Whew… that’s a long headline but it does say what this is.

We’re working with SoundCloud this week to draw attention to the Music Xray App in the SoundCloud App gallery.

Activating the app places you in a pool from which 10 musicians will be chosen for private audition slots for NBC’s The Voice. Upon activation, your SoundCloud track library is analyzed with acoustic analysis software and automatically matched to real industry opportunities. Then, we put you in touch with the decision makers behind each opportunity and we guarantee they listen and respond. Seriously!

Finally, a level playing field where it doesn’t matter who you know. All that matter are your talent, skill, and your artistic appeal.

Starting today and until the 21st of December, everyone who activates the app will be from among those chosen for several slots for private auditions for The Voice in January and February in various cities across the United States.

All you have to do is activate the app to be eligible.

And if by chance you’re a current Music Xray user without a SoundCloud account, what are you waiting for? Music Xray works best with SoundCloud.

Activate the Music Xray App in the SoundCloud App gallery right now.

How to enter your similar artists on Music Xray

Posted by Mike McCready | December 3rd, 2012 | 2 Responses

Every musician / content owner should enter similar artist data for each of their tracks on Music Xray. Doing so helps insure your tracks can be found by industry professionals via Music Xray’s search engine (available only to the industry professionals with accounts on the site). It also insures you can target the fans of the artists you enter as similar to you.

In other words, when you run a Fan Match campaign, you target the fan base of the artists you enter as being similar to you. Plus, as soon as you enter the data, we tell you how many potential fans we have already identified for you.

Recently, we’ve had a few customer service inquiries asking about how to enter this information. Many times, the site simply prompts you, but another way to do it is to edit your tracks and scroll down to the part where it asks you to enter search related data. From there, follow the instructions in the video below.

It’s important that you follow these instructions EXACTLY in order to avoid a database error.
