Is there a way to copy all the caracteristics of a song to all the diferent versions of that track?  


Today I've been uploading 5 alternative cuts of a track and I think it's a waste of time to define the tempo, the key, the music style and then have to desambiguate all keywords again. It's like doing exactly the same work 5 times.. Maybe there is a way to do it faster and I don't know it, but if there is not, don't you think guys it should be?? I mean, this 30 minutes it took me , are 30 minutes I could spend composing or recording..

sadly the batch tool for istock (Deepmeta) cannot be successfully used on audios, since it breaks some audio keywords disambiguation, causing loss of information.
Until iStock doesn't change its API -dont ask me what it means, I've been told so-, we must stick with wasting time like you say...

Thanks picc! It's a pity because it's a time we could use to produce more music...

hey, look at it it as "a feature"!
since you cannot batch metadata, chances to insert relevant-file-specific information do increase!

although to save a little time you can copy your keywords and description from the first version, paste into a word document and copy and paste into the other versions, at least it saves typing, you still have to manually tick off the musical/tempo boxes, but it helps a little, but maybe you already do this?
