Hello Editors!

For those of you that don't know, we have been working very hard in the background on some vital updates to our system.

The first thing we focused on is the database and in the last 3 months we've done some extensive work to speed the system up and stop all those "time outs" and slow page loads. We have come a long way and have the backend of the system running quite smoothly and error-free now! This was a major accomplishment as so much of the code that went into building this application needed to be tweaked. Now it is and it's ready for some design changes!

Below is a semi-functional iframe version of what we are going to launch as the newest version of the Crooklyn Clan Vault. We took a lot of advice from our clients and editors and focused hard on making a more seamless experience for the clients with this up and coming update. What you see here is NOT PLUGGED INTO OUR DATABASE, it does not have any connection at all to our application in its current state so please don't ask where this and that is. This is just a DEMONSTRATION of the "design" and feel of what's to come with this update. If you have any "DESIGN" (I stress the word design because you must remember that's what you are looking at, not a working version of the application) but if you have any design comments, want to see this button over there or this logo over here, etc.. You can email me at store@crooklynclan.net and I will check out what you have to say and consider it.

We are set to have this design plugged in and running as a beta by mid July so if you have something to comment on, request, etc.. don't waste too much time!! Play with the design, click a few buttons and see how everything works. The filters are not plugged in to the database and will produce no results nor will the search engines.

Cheers,

Sizz

ATTENTION AUDIO VAULT EDITORS
We know many of you worked hard to become editors in the Audio Vault and we appreciate your efforts, each and every one of you, but the time has come to clear out some of our less effective editors in the Audio Vault and add more value for our top editors while making room for some new additions. We really want to bring back that "Exclusive" feeling the Audio Vault used to have.

I have personal relationships with many of you and care about you all, but this is a business decision and must be done for the sake of longevity, quality, and brand maintenance.

ALL HOPE IS NOT GONE..

While you may be removed from the Audio Vault, this does not mean you cannot still keep your editor account and edit for the i12inch Digital Pool. With these decisions also come a few new rules for the digital pool that may offer more incentive and make you guys want to stick around..

The decided editors will not be released solely due to their results at the end of June. The decision will also be based on your All Time performance.

On behalf of all 3 owners we appreciate you all and thank you for your understanding in this matter. I will be announcing changes for the i12inch Pool later on in the month so watch out for my notice!

SYSTEM SCRUB COMING JUNE 1ST
Editors, please check through your published tracks and decide which of your tracks over time that have 0 downloads you would like to take out of the system then put them in revision mode for removal. Starting June 1st we will begin the process of removing your revision tracks so that you may clean up your libraries and keep what should be there. Eventually, we will make a further determination and remove some additional tracks from the system after we go through this first process. When you are satisfied with what you have put into revision and you are ready for them to be deleted send an email to store@crooklynclan.net and let us know so we can process your deletion.

Video Vault max uploads per accounting period have now been reduced to 40.
04/01/2019
"SLAM EDIT" Has been added to the version type field.

About slam edits:

All slam edits must include a clean and dirty version in the release IF NEEDED.

Slam edits added to the Audio Vault must not be straight originals with just an impact sound. Slam edits that are basic should be dropped into the i12inch Pool.

Slam edits dropped into Audio Vault will be reviewed and will not count towards your monthly quota if they do not meet the standards of the Audio Vault. This will be opinion-based by our discretion.
03/01/2019
Effective as of March 1st 2019 Audio Vault editor Frankie Steel will be taking on a new job as manager for the i12inch Digital Pool. He will be in charge of keeping the editors and pool clean and as useful as possible for our clients. Frankie will also be overseeing track submissions in the Audio Vault to ensure Editors are uploading quality and rules are being followed.

Many rules have been broken and advantage has been taken over the previous months - this will no longer be the case going forward. If you are unfamiliar with the rules for uploading tracks into each section of this web application please check the menu sections above (services), (uploading), (penalties), and be sure to memorize everything. There will be cuts made in the pool making the income substantially higher for those deservant. There will also be cuts made to the Audio Vault in the coming weeks.

When editing for the pool I ask you all to please pay attention to what's already there, what's NOT already there, and be POSITIVE you are not supplying things already supplied by other editors. Try hard to fill the gaps as explained previously. You guys have run wild for a long time and most of you are not treating it like you should. I myself have gone there to look for acapellas, instrumentals, and other tracks that SHOULD be there and they are not.. Silly mashups and versions from other people's sites are being found up there and it will not be permitted any longer.

ATTENTION AUDIO VAULT EDITORS:
It has come to our attention that some of you are putting i12inch pool worthy edits into the Audio Vault for the sake of making the monthly quota. This is unacceptable and will not be permitted moving forward.

Letters were sent out to a few of you to provide additional edits before the month of February is over. Please comply and in the future abide by the rules of the Audio Vault.

Some of the editors in the Audio Vault work extremely hard all month long and it's not fair to them to have other editors pressing for a payout to split the bank up more. In the future this will be addressed by revoking Audio Vault editing privileges without warning.

Thanks.

CUSTOM EDIT SYSTEM BEING IMPLEMENTED:
We are in the process of implementing a new system that will allow our clients to purchase custom edits of their choice. This offering will be an entirely separate accounting system and the payout will be split 50/50 Editor/Crooklyn Clan. We will be structuring this deal in the form of amounts of edits. For Example:

1: $8
3: $20
5:  $30
10: $50

These numbers are not in stone but will be decided when we are ready to launch this new feature. While in beta only our top Audio Vault editors will have access to this hub. We will test the service and client reaction, functionality and payout formulation, then eventually go live with it making it available to all editors. We will start off by giving clients the ability to pick just one editor per pack, then eventually work out a system that will allow clients to mix and match editors returning a clean accounting for each respectively. We hope to be in beta for the first week of March.

IG Promotions must all be VIDEOS! Even if you are an editor for the Audio Vault or i12inch your promo for IG must be a video that is 15 seconds in length. It's ok if it's just a picture with your music behind it, but it must be a video. The format must be as follows:


- Video MUST be 640x640 in size (Fits perfect on mobile devices, it's about the promotion not showing off video quality)

- Video MUST be rendered as MP4 at a minimum of 480p with a maximum of 720p. Please render at NORMAL quality. Your finished 15 second video should be about 2-3mb in size, that's when you know you did it right.

- Video MUST have the correct section logo that you edit for. Go to the Ad's/Images section above to download the correct watermark for your videos.
09/17/2018
Please head over to the Ad's/Images section to download transparent logos for your videos. Use the correct logo in your Instagram 15 second videos that corresponds to the section the featured track could be found in. No video ad will run without the correct company branding included so be sure to get these logos now and use them in each video!
09/15/2018
We are going to step our IG game up heavy Editors. We now have the ability to "swipe up" using IG stories and will be utilizing "Story Highlights" sections you see in the image to do just that. Once a week on Thursday or Friday we will be adding 15 second audio clips to the "Audio" section and 15 second video clips to the "Video" section of our IG account. This means once a week each editor can now submit 1 15 second Audio or Video clip by Wednesday of every week. Edit the clip to show what you want to be heard or seen in a 15 second time frame. Not a second more will work so customize your clips so that they make whatever it is you are promoting stand out!

When clips are added to the main story they will link to the Audio, Video, and i12inch Digital Pools respectively when swiped up for those that are logged into the application. For all others, they will be brought to the login screen.

This will be an immensely valuable tool for all of you to utilize. You all know we are very fair and will post each and every one of your submissions bearing they meet the standards required. Our follower base is growing organically without trickery or apps to help it along like many of our competitors with 100k followers that have no idea who they are. Take pride in your work, create powerful 15 second videos of just your audio and an image or get more creative if you choose, there are no limits.

The only requirement other than 15 seconds is that our branding goes on all submissions.

That's all for now! We will start next week so send submissions to store@crooklynclan.net by Wednesday at midnight PST to be included in the weekly blast.

Are you dope? Do you want your mixes to gain maximum exposure? No matter what service you are an editor for in the Crooklyn Clan Vault the more you supply us with promotional tools to push you the more money we will spend doing just that. What do I mean? VIDEOS. Let's be real about it, social media marketing is mandatory across the board for growth and success. With that said, what is the best form of social media marketing you can think of? VIDEOS.

Just like my very own (Sizzahandz) video promos I drop on a daily basis into social media, we will pay for yours to drop as well. Will we make them FOR YOU? NO. Create 1 minute long videos (be sure to include our logo for the duration of the video) of your releases you want emphasis on and send us Dropbox or Google Drive links to store@crooklynclan.net. If they are up to standard we will post them on our Instagram and Facebook pages and dump money into them to push you out to the masses!!

Without you making them, we can't promote you as well as we would like to so it's up to you to get them done! Trust me, it makes a tremendous difference and will reflect in your sales without question! All videos need to be 640x640 at 720p, and no longer than 1 minute. We will post a maximum of 1 video per week of yours so make it a good one! If your audio and video are not synced we will trash it. Put in the work it takes to get it poppin' and see the results for yourself!

Editors that are inactive and do not make quota for 2 accounting periods in a row will lose Editor status. Additionally, your collections will be moved to the "Vault Classics" sections for the service(s) you edit in. Once this process takes places there is no way to bring your catalog back to you. This means even if we bring you back in as an Editor at a later date your catalog will no longer be under your section. Please be aware of this and understand that there is no way to reverse this once it's happen. This process happens automatically.

AUDIO EDITORS - We ask that you take an additional step before you upload music to the server from this day forward. We don't ask you where you get your source files, but it's mandatory for you to re-convert them to 320kbps MP3 files using the correct standards.

All editors can download a free application called "
Mediahuman Audio Converter" for Mac or PC to convert your files before uploading them. This will ensure that the correctly formatted files are being sent through the uploader. This does not mean it's ok to upsample files that are below the 320kbps minimum. We will still detect this if it happens and remove files that are not "true" 320kbps. Again, we stress that you make this a priority before uploading and promise that Mediahuman will make the process fast and painless.
