How to Upload Tracks into your Library

How do I add a Count In section to my Cloud Song?

Once a Cloud Song is created in your Library and tracks are uploaded, the entire duration of the tracks starts as an Intro song section at timecode 00:00:000. Song sections can be added via timecode online, or directly on the grid in Playback. The easiest way to add section markers is in Playback.

While the Cloud Song is loaded and selected in Playback:

  • Long-press EDIT in Playback and select the Cloud Song Sections mode.

  • Tap the "Intro" song section bubble to open the edit song section menu, where you can then switch the section from Intro to Count-In.

  • Scroll two measures forward to bar 3 and tap the + button to add a new song section. This will start the song with a 2-bar count-in that leads into whichever section marker you choose.

What format should timecode be in?

When adding song sections, tempo changes, and time signatures to a Cloud Song, timecode is added to tell Playback where these events occur along the timeline.

  • Time code should be in this format:
    (00:00:000; Minutes : Seconds : Milliseconds)

  • Most DAWs display the timecode position of section markers which can be referenced when copying song sections from your DAW into Playback.

How do I add a click track to my cloud song?

Playback will automatically create a built-in click track that follows the tempo and time signature for songs with multiple tracks uploaded.

What User Permission is required to create a Cloud Song and upload tracks and charts?

Campus and Organization Administrators have the ability to create Cloud Songs. Learn more about User Roles and Permissions.

How do I enable the Guide Cues on my Cloud Song?

In order for Playback to display an audio guide stem to use, you will need an audio file uploaded with your other stems in the cloud song that's designated as one of the "guide" options from the drop-down menu in the tracks settings of your cloud song. There are two options to designate your audio file and these are important when telling Playback what to do.

  • Guide (Non-Dynamic) is the setting you want to choose if you want Playback to play the vocal audio guide audio track that was uploaded. Use this label on the stem if you uploaded an audio guide track and don't intend to make arrangement changes or extensive song sections in the Playback app.
    Note: Using this setting, the audio guide will not change dynamically with any song sections changes so the guide could call out incorrect song sections if alternative arrangements are made in the app.

  • Guide (Dynamic) is the setting you want to choose if you want to build song sections, and have the guide track dynamically change with any song sections you move around!

Why are my Song Sections stopping in Playback?

Cloud Song Song Sections may stop like this in the Playback app when the timecode for a song section is not accurate to the millisecond. If you're unable to get reliable timecode, we recommend restarting with the song section markers and building them all in the Playback app.

Note: If you're using Logic Pro X, the default Timecode setting will need to be changed.
Timecode should be in this format 00:00:000 (Minutes : Seconds : Milliseconds)
