Automation tracks not synced between bandmembers
« on: July 30, 2021, 05:29:09 AM »
Is it correct that automation tracks aren’t synced to the other bandmembers.
I created automation for highlighting the text but it works only on my account.
Is this a setting?

Automation tracks are synced unless you turn on Settings > Account Sync > Personal Sync > Automation Tracks.

Yes that setting is on but that doesn’t sync the setting to the other accounts

If you want to sync your automation tracks with other users, you need to turn the Personal Sync setting off.

If you have already recorded automation tracks with the Personal Sync setting on and you now want to share those automation tracks, you would need to turn the Personal Sync setting on, view a song, long-press the automation button and select Copy. Then turn the Personal Sync setting off, view the song again, long-press the automation button and select Paste. Then repeat for each song that has a personal automation track.

Tried this, but when pasting it comes with a message and when confirmed it doesn’t paste anything.can make a recording of it if you want?

Okay, I just tried it and copying between personal and shared automation tracks doesn't work. I can add that as a capability in the next app version. Until then, you would need to turn off personal syncing and recreate the automation track to make a shared track.

In the new app versions released today, you can copy between personal and shared automation tracks by copying an automation track, changing your personal sync setting, then viewing the song again and pasting the automation track. It's a lot of steps, but easier than recreating the automation track from scratch.
