Automation and Live Sharing Databases
« on: July 05, 2023, 03:50:21 AM »
I'm controlling 1 iPad from another with Live Sharing, both using the same database.
When I add new songs to the database, I then have to share the database again with my ""following" iPad.
Does this overwrite any Automation assigned to songs on the "following" iPad? Or will they remain unaltered?

Yes, automation tracks are included in the database export and will be overwritten when you import a database. If you add automation tracks on one device, you will need to export the database from that device so the other device is up to date, before adding songs or other info on the other device.
