Add recordings
« on: August 21, 2017, 07:33:49 PM »
Is there going to be a better way to add recordings in the near future? The current options for iOS are painfully slow and involved. Setlist maker was  much better for adding recordings. I realize this will load Tgi multiple devices but if you have more than a few songs it's not really with the bother for practice purposes.

I used the itunes method. It's there a way to add more than one sing at a time?

It's easier to add recordings from the website, and you can upload either single recordings or batches of recordings. Instructions are here:

I moved all of my music into the BandHelper app in iTunes. Still can't find it in Band Helper

Finally got the batch method to work. Not quick but, got some of my music in there.

If you copied recordings into the BandHelper iOS app using iTunes File Sharing, you still need to link those recordings to your songs. You can do that by editing a song and clicking the Add Recordings button.

That's for adding a brand new recording. If you have imported a database from Set List Maker, it's definitely faster to do the batch upload from the website, as described on the Account > Import page.

The batch upload added track numbers to the songs So I now have two of everything. In the process of renaming and removing duplicates.

That would happen if the files you uploaded included track numbers in their filenames. If you batch-upload files, the filenames need to match the song or recording names you already have in BandHelper, otherwise it will create new entries for those new filenames.
