  • The Beat Grid and Cue points shifted after changing the [Audio Quality] in SoundCloud. Why?

    If you change the [Audio Quality] setting, the Beat Grid and Cue points of tracks that have already been analyzed may shift.
    If you change the [Audio Quality] setting, you'll need to re-analyze the track and reset the Cue points. Also, make sure that the [Audio Quality] settings are the same for all devices that are Library Synced.

  • Do you support SoundCloud Go+ High Quality Streaming?

    Yes.

    High Quality Streaming can be used by selecting [High Quality 256kbps (AAC)] for [Audio Quality].

     

    However, [High Quality 256kbps (AAC)] may not be used to play or analyze certain tracks because the AAC format may not be available depending on the track.

    In this case, [128kbps (MP3)] will be used to play and analyze the track.

    The Beat Grid and Cue points may also need to be reset due to the possibility of the Beat Grid and Cue points shifting when [Audio Quality] is changed.
