How to use the Aroundsound app
These tips will help you to get the most out of Aroundsound
High quality recordingUsers regularly tell us that the recording quality with Aroundsound is exceptional, whether you are recording speech, singing, music or natural sounds around you.
Whenever you want to create a recording just open the app and click on the red recording button located in the bottom right corner. The recording will start automatically - you can pause or stop a recording any time. The recording will continue in the background too so you can still use your phone whilst recording (for anything that doesn't need the microphone).
If you have given the app permission, your location will automatically be added. You can adjust this permission at any time. After you have finished a recording, you will have the ability to change the title, location and add notes.
Never lose a recordingWe know your sounds are precious, and to make sure they are kept safe, your Aroundsound recordings are backed up to private cloud storage. Syncing to the cloud happens automatically whenever you have internet access. To protect your data plan, by default, syncing takes place only when you are connected to Wifi (you can change this on the settings tab and back up over cellular data if you prefer). As soon as your recording is synced, it will be available from any device with the app installed and when logged in with your account. You can check the sync status at any time by looking at the menu associated with any recording.
Aroundsound uses Google Cloud, one of the world’s leading storage platforms. As a special offer to early users, fair use of storage is free and we promise that anything you create now will be freely available when we introduce paid storage tiers. So get soundtracking with Aroundsound today, to take advantage of this offer, available for a limited time only.
Build collections of soundsYou can now organise your sounds into collections. Creating a collection is easy - just go to the collections tab and hit the '+' button. You can 'add sounds' directly from that new collection, or you can select a recording directly from sounds tab, tap on the menue and then choose 'add to a collection'.
Aroundsound also provides 'Smart Collections, which are auto-filled with relevant sounds. Just now you will find one for any sounds that have been shared with you called 'Incoming' and another for sounds you have shared called 'Shared'.
