Working with Audio
Automate your page turns by recording them in conjunction with a linked audio track. Tap the Replay button in the media box (the page with an arrow in it) and turn pages while the track plays. On subsequent plays, pages will turn themselves at just the right moment.
While replay mode is on, small lines in the seek bar will show you where saved page turns are located. An X button will also appear on the right-hand side of the seek bar, allowing you to delete saved page turns and start from scratch.
Please note that Autoturn and Replay are not intended to be used in tandem. We recommend choosing one method or the other.
If your settings allow you to flip between scores, you’ll see a lock icon in the media controller that prevents you from accidentally flipping to the next or previous score as long as the track is still playing.
Whether you’d like to review your practice sessions later or share your progress with friends and colleagues, forScore’s recording feature can help. Choose “record” from the tools menu to begin, and tap the microphone icon when you’re ready. You’ll see a red volume meter so you can make sure you’re close enough for the microphone to pick up clear audio. Tap the microphone again to stop recording, and then either save or discard it. Saved recordings are automatically linked to the current score so you can review them later.
The list icon next to the microphone lets you view, share, or delete any recordings you’ve made for the current score.
Note: The media box is not visible while recording. Tap the X button when you’re finished recording to continue using the media playback controls.
If you’d like to loop a portion of the song, tap on the repeat symbol in the media controller and drag the blue handles left and right to set the loop time.
As of version 10, forScore has the ability to independently adjust the playback speed and pitch of your audio tracks, with limitations depending on your version of iOS and each track’s properties:
- DRMed files or files that haven’t been downloaded to your device can be played at 50%, 75%, or 100% of their normal speed
- Other tracks can be slowed down or sped up from 25% to 200% of their original speed (works on all versions of iOS)
- Users with iOS 8 or later can also independently adjust the pitch of each track by up to an octave
These options are made available automatically whenever possible, and can all be accessed by tapping the dial button in the media box. Pitch and speed are saved automatically per track, so you can move between tracks or scores without losing your settings.
