Join Nate Mars for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding your projects to Splice, part of Learning Splice.
- Let's take a look at how you can add your own projects on Splice. The desktop app I showed you how to install earlier is what you'll use to sync your projects. Click on the Splice icon in the menu bar to open it. Splice's core features currently support Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro and GarageBand with support from many more dials to come. In this course I'm going to be working with Ableton Live projects as an example. With save anywhere enabled, Splice will prompt you to back up new project saved anywhere on your machine or external hard drive. Click the gear icon in the Splice desktop app, then Preferences, then Sync and just make sure that this Ask to sync new projects button is enabled.
With save anywhere enabled you can work as you normally do, make a save and a Splice notification will ask if you'd like to start syncing the project or not. That's it, just choose sync and Splice will automatically back up all future saves of that project. At the moment save anywhere is only available for Mac. The other way we can sync a project is by dragging it directly to our Splice folder. I can take this project, drag it to the Splice folder, and as you can see, Splice started syncing the project. When I open the desktop app I have an option to leave a comment about the project before I post it to Splice.
Last you can begin syncing a project by just saving it directly to your Splice folder. Once you start syncing a project you can access it and all of its previous saves from your private online studio. So just as a point of clarification, the save anywhere feature is only available on Mac at the moment. And what that allows you to do is save your projects as you normally would in your own file structure, for example, if you have an album in progress on an external hard drive or you like to save projects on your desktop, you can do that.
And with save anywhere enabled Splice will sync those projects using whatever workflow and directories you like to work with.
