Frequently asked questions
Using mp3 audio
How can I use mp3 audio?
You have to load a matching tab into the library first. After adding a tab to the library, the player will ask you if you'd like to select an mp3 file as backing track. Click 'yes' and browse for the desired mp3 audio.
Alternatively you can change audio source of a tab in the track info pane. The track info pane appears in the left side of the library after clicking on a track. Make sure that the info button is selected in the player header.
When first loading your track with mp3 audio, the player will ask you if you want to synchronize them. Click 'yes' and a built-in help pane will guide you through the basic steps of synchronization.
What does synchronization mean?
When first loading a tab with mp3 audio, the player will ask you if you want to synchronize them. By synchronizing tab & audio you'll get accurate position highlight timing during playback. You can switch synchronization mode on / off by selecting 'Sync score & audio' from the context menu of the options icon.
What are the basic steps of synchronization?
Start synchronization by creating links between matching score and audio positions. First, select a characteristic chord near the beginning of the score and adjust score position by clicking on it. Then adjust the matching audio position by clicking on the waveform below the score. Hold down the mouse button and keep moving the cursor until you find the right audio position for the selected chord. Finally, click 'link' to create a link between score and audio position.
Add a second link either a few measures after the first one or near the end of the score. With only two link points placed accurately, you can get an adequate timing result during playback. In case you are a maximalist, you can go on and add further link points to fine tune your synchronization settings.
Once your 2nd link point has been added you can try the 'auto-sync' feature. By clicking 'auto', the player will start searching for link points automatically after the current cursor position. In most cases it generates a large number of new and accurate link points making your timing even more precise.
