    Dear Sir or Madame,

    I would like to receive the latest information about the standard ERN Electronic Release Notification for Release Deliveries and an example file in XML format, if possible.

    Once I generate the XML file according the ERN:

    1. how can I validate it against the DDEX definition? 
    2. Do you have any tool or link were I can submit the XML generated for validation purposes?

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    As a content creator, how can I start using DDEX in my work flow to start submitting metadata to DDEX? Credits like Producer, Engineer, and musicians that played on the recording.

    1. A very good question, Chris. Data about the recording/mixing/mastering events should be collected as close to the recording/mixing/mastering event as possible. Ideally within the digital audio workstation that the sound engineer uses to do his work. DDEX is currently working on a standard that would allow DAW manufacturers to populate a standardised metadata file with relevant information about the recording. We call this standard Recording Information Notification and I would like to invite you to have a look at for more details om RIN.

      We are currently seeking input from DAW manufacturers – but also their users and other interested parties – on our current approach.
