Playback Version 8.1.8 is currently only available in our Playback Closed Beta.

Before getting started:

  • Requires Playback Version 8.1.8 or newer.

  • Requires that an organization has at least one other Playback device logged in as any user under the same organization that has access to the setlist.

    • The user receiving the rental transfers will need Playback Rental Permission, and access to the setlist by being an admin, or added to the setlist.

Notable Information:

  • Playback Rentals can only be transferred in the context of a setlist.

  • Playback Rentals can only be transferred a single time, from one device to another. After a particular rental is transferred, it cannot be transferred to another device again.

  2. If transferring rentals from the currently-opened setlist, simply click on the setlist name under the "Current Setlist" area in the setlist menu to open the setlist details, and select "Transfer Rentals to another device.
