Playback Sync connects the Charts in ChartBuilder to the setlist in Playback in real time; the Charts scroll/swipe automatically and follow all changes in Playback.
Playback Sync is a broadcast enabled from Playback
ChartBuilder can see and connect to available Playback devices that are connected to the same network
Once connected and in sync, ChartBuilder will automatically follow Playback’s every move.
Playback Sync will work with MultiTracks.com catalogue songs AND cloud songs you’ve uploaded tracks and created charts for.
Before You Get Started:
The accounts logged in to Playback and ChartBuilder must be a part of the same Organization and be added or have access to the setlists being used. Learn how to manage your team.
Any people in your Organization with a ChartBuilder App seat can log into ChartBuilder and use Playback Sync.
The team needs access to the charts. You’d need to either purchase charts or have an active Chart Pro subscription, and each team member would need a ChartBuilder seat. Learn More.
Playback must be on a Wi-Fi or hard-wired network shared with the ChartBuilder devices and connected to the internet. To prevent any device interference, we recommend a private network reserved for Playback Sync using a dedicated router.
Playback Sync is available to all Playback tiers (including the free Intro tier).

Track Playback: ChartBuilder will automatically scroll through song sections and highlight the current section, as well as switch songs through programmed transitions

Enabling Playback Sync

Save your setlist to the cloud from the setlist menu.
Open the More Menu by tapping on the three-line-menu icon in the upper right corner.
Tap on the Playback Sync cell to make your Playback device available. ChartBuilder will see your device available under your username.
Step 2: Connect ChartBuilder to Playback

Tap on the Playback device to connect. Once connected, ChartBuilder will see which setlist is currently opened.
Tap GO TO SETLIST to enter Sync Mode and open the setlist currently in Playback.
While in Sync Mode, ChartBuilder automatically follows every move of Playback.
Setlist Auto-Update: When Playback saves a new setlist update, ChartBuilder will automatically implement the update after a 5 second countdown.
Leave Sync Mode by manually choosing a new song in ChartBuilder or backing out of the setlist. Re-sync to Playback at any time by tapping Sync to Playback banner in the Setlist Overview or Chart View.
