Rehearsal Mode

Rehearsal mode enables you to invite students or band members to play a song together. By loading songs and controlling playback on each device, you can offer a hands-free playback experience to all invited members.

Creating a Rehearsal Room

Select Cloud > Create Rehearsal Room from the system menu. Enter a room name and start inviting other cloud users into your rehearsal room.

Anybody with a free cloud account can be invited. Invited guests can use the free browser app or the desktop app. As your guests launch Go PlayAlong on their devices, they will get a notification about the invite inside the app.

Your guests can sign up for a free cloud account at https://cloud.goplayalong.com/signUp. You will also need an active Desktop + Cloud license as the room host.

Online Classes

Rehearsal mode can be an excellent complementary tool for your online guitar classes. If your students are physically not in the same room as you, it's important that audio is played on all connected devices. There's a check box labeled Play audio on all devices under rehearsal room settings. Make sure that it's turned on.

Practicing in The Same Room

If you're sharing the same space with your fellow musicians, only one device will need to have audio output. Otherwise, simultaneous audio would create an echo effect in the room. Make sure that the check box Play audio on all devices is turned off under the rehearsal room settings.

Hands-Free Experience

Once all your guests are connected, you can start loading songs as the room host. Any song you load will appear on guest devices automatically. Playback will be controlled by you and all other devices will reflect your actions. These actions include play / pause, looping selections, using count-in or metronome features and adjusting tempo.
