Bringing it all Together

All of the Songs you create can be added to your Bands’ Shows and Sets. Also, in order to share any Songs you own with Band Members, those Songs must be in a Set/Show. Conversely, in order to practice Songs that belong to other Caedence users, you must be a Band Member of one or more of their Bands that have Shows/Sets that contain those Songs.

Exporting and Sharing Sets

You can export an entire Set of one or more Songs and give them to other Caedence users. To be clear, exporting a Set creates copies of Songs that other Caedence user(s) own and can edit. Subsequent edits to the copied Song(s) do not affect the original(s) in any way. Exporting is different from the typical method of Song “sharing” that occurs between Band Leaders and Band Members.

To export and share a Set:

1. Go to the Set Summary Screen

2. Click the “Download” button

    Set Summary Screen- Download Button

    After clicking the download button, a JSON file of the entire Set will be downloaded to your device. You can send this file to other Caedence users to import it into their account. (See below)

    Importing a Set

    In order to edit and play sets that have been sent to you by other Caedence users, you must import them into a show. As stated above, when you import these sets into your account, you will become the owner of the song copies and can edit them however you please.

    1. Download the Set JSON File to your device

    2. Choose a Band’s Show you want to import the Set into

    3. On the Show Management Screen, click “Import Set”

    Set Import Step 1

    4. This will bring up a file upload dialog where you will choose the recently downloaded Set.
