Playback Sync

Because there are many different mobile devices by different manufacturers, your recorded part may not be perfectly in sync. So the app has a feature that allows you to move your new recording forward or back in time, to sync up with the original recording.

On your recorded part you will see a speaker icon on top of the fader. Press and hold this icon. This will bring up the ‘Playback Sync’ settings box. Simply move the button left or right to bring your recording forward or back in 50 ms increments. In most cases this will solve the problem.

The app will remember your setting so you don’t have to keep using it after each recording. If you want to go back to the default setting, tap ‘REVERT’. If standard adjustment doesn’t give you a perfect result, tap the ‘Advanced Mode’ button. Once activated you can adjust in 5 ms increments.
