How to use Soundful


What is My Library?

Every Soundful user has a My Library that is unique to them. This section holds all your saved or favorited tracks, loops, and templates.

It is your go to spot to see how many downloads you have available as well as the place to search, download, and sort all your tracks, loops, and templates. Let’s break it down by section. The top section of the My Library shows your account details including: how many tracks you’ve created, your name, how many .mp3 and .wav downloads you have available (music note icon), how many monthly STEMs you have remaining (calendar icon), and how many STEMs you have purchased (receipt icon).
NOTE: If you purchase a copyright, your included STEM pack will appear in the receipt icon location and does not expire
Below the account details are the menus for your created tracks that you have saved (Creations), your favorited Global Tracks and templates (Favorites), and your downloaded tracks and loops (Downloads) For Creations and Downloads you can sort your tracks by Type (track or loop), Genre, Template, BPM and Key. Your tracks will also display this information: Title, Genre, Template, BPM, Key, Duration, and Date Created Your Favorites menu will have two sections: Templates and Tracks. Your Tracks section can be sorted the same way as Creations and Downloads
PRO TIP: You can also favorite tracks from your Creations list and they will appear in your Favorites section under Tracks. This comes in handy when you have a large list of created tracks and would like to favorite only the ones you plan to download at this time.

What comes in a STEM download?

Your STEM pack will be a zipped folder containing a midi file, mix + master file, and a stems file.

How can I view my saved loops?

In your My Library select the Types button. This will allow you to see just your saved track, loops, or both.

What is a loop?

A loop is a repeating part of a song created by different instruments or devices.

Our loops are typically 30 seconds long and are under a non-exclusive license, meaning that no individual user can own the copyright for them. Soundful loops are great for building up or adding to your existing projects or mixing into a Soundful track.

What is a Global Track?

Global Tracks are pre-generated tracks that are available to all Soundful users for royalty free use.

Global Tracks are under a non-exclusive license, meaning that no individual user can own the copyright for them. These tracks are great for use in your videos or projects, as creative starting points to create Similar tracks from, or to download and manipulate into your next hit song!

What is a genre?

A genre is a category of music.

There are MANY different genres out there but some of our most popular ones are LoFi, Hip Hop, and Moods & Themes.

What is a template?

A template is a sub-genre of music.

It’s our way of getting you closer to the perfect track needed for your project and lets you explore music you may not have even considered before!

What’s the difference between Similar, Track and Loop on the create wheel?

Similar allows you to generate a track that is from the same template as your currently selected track

Track will pull up the Track Generation menu, letting you customize what genre and template you want to create a track from regardless of your currently selected track

Loop will pull up the Loop Generation menu, letting you customize what genre and template you want to create

Is there a Soundful app?

No, at this time we do not yet have an available app for download.

Soundful is best experienced on your desktop. It can also be used to create on the go through your phone’s browser but functionality and support may be limited.

I have a feature idea - how can I share it with the team?

We’re always looking to hear from our users about what they like about Soundful so far and what they would like to see in the future! You can complete one of our surveys or schedule a 30-60 minute Zoom conversation with our team through our scheduling link.

If you’re in a hurry to get back to creating, you can also send us your ideas and suggestions through our Support Form here!

How do I download my Soundful tracks?

To download one of your created tracks go to My Library and select the Get button on your desired track.

A popup will appear prompting you to select a download option. This popup will also show you how many of each download type is available. Select Render & Download.

A new popup will appear confirming your track is in the process of downloading.

NOTE: STEM and .wav downloads may take longer depending on your network connection

Once your render is completed you will receive an email stating your track is ready for downloading.

You can download by selecting the Download button (previously Get).

A popup will appear prompting you to select what file types you wish to download your track as. You can select multiple file types if you have the available downloads.

NOTE: One monthly download will allow for you to download both the .mp3 and .wav of your track

After selecting your desired download formats, Soundful will notify you when the download has been completed through onsite popups.

Congratulations! You now have a one of a kind Soundful track!

In what formats can I download my tracks?

Loops and tracks can be downloaded as .mp3, .wav, and STEM file formats

What do the icons on my saved tracks mean?

When you are in the My Library you will see the following icons to the left of your track information: From left to right: Favorite Icon : Favorites your track. This will also add it to your Favorites menu under the Tracks section Edit Icon : Allows for the track to be edited. If this icon is grayed out then the track has been downloaded and can no longer be edited in Soundful Share Icon : You can share any of your tracks through WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Email, or by getting a direct link to the track itself Get/Download Icon : Before a track is downloaded this button will show as Get. This will start the rendering process. Once rendering is complete it will change to the download icon. This track will also then appear in your Downloads menu

How do I get more STEMS?

STEM bundles are available for purchase for our Premium users under Plan Details (Bell Icon) in the Additional Bundles section. These bundles will not reset monthly and will remain with your account until used even if you decide to downgrade to Standard.

Is every loop generated completely unique?

Our loops are generated from scratch each time and can vary in complexity. This can create some unique samples!

Can I use my monthly STEM downloads on both loops and tracks?

Absolutely!

All your available download credits can be used in the same way across loops and tracks on Soundful.

What is the difference between a loop and a track?

A loop is small set of sounds that has been edited to be repeated seamlessly. Tracks are full length songs that don't necessarily repeat seamlessly. Loops are a great way to add a little spice to your track, whether it's a simple drum beat or shaker sample!

What's the difference between Global Tracks and My Library?

Global Tracks are pre-created songs that are browsable, playable, and downloadable by all users.

The Global Tracks section is a great place from where you can get inspiration, just listen, or create similar tracks. You can search and browse this section to find exactly what you are looking for without having to create a track yourself.

My Library holds all of the Global Tracks that you favorited or tracks you created and saved. This section is unique to you and can not be accessed by other users. 

How do I create a track?

You can create a track in a few different ways:
1. Click the create button create-icon at any time from the player at the bottom of the screen. Then select Similar, Track, or Loop.
2. Hover over any template and click the create button create-icon and then select create previewScreenshot-2022-03-10-at-6.24.30-PM

When you create a song with the API integration, each download is considered a pull

No, the pulls do not roll over if you do not use all of them. Each month will be reset with 1,000 pulls.

There is no minimum amount of pulls. You can use as many as needed for up to 1,000 pulls for the month, beyond that it is $1 per pull.

Our team of software engineers is available to help with any and all issues that may come up regarding the API integration. They are happy to help!

Our AI is not trained on previously copyrighted music but instead based on music theory and foundation provided by our in-house production team.
