Working with track types

Audience: Adminstrators

Using track types when uploading tracks

  1. Click Upload
  2. The default track type is ‘Music’
  3. Click the drop down menu to select another type

Now when uploading tracks, you have the option to set a track type. This helps better identify and organize track files. If you have a group of files for commercials that needs to be uploaded, you can “Commercial” in the drop down menu and then upload the files. Commercial is included by default with LT, but you can create your own type in settings.

Create track types

  1. Click Settings
  2. Click Track Types
  3. Click New Track Type
  4. On the “Code” field, type a unique code that can be easily identifiable. Example, for Music use “MUS” or for Sound Effects use something like “FX”.
  5. On the “Type Name” field, type a the name of the type of tracks. Example, “Station IDs”.
  6. On the “Description” field, enter the description of the type given.
  7. On the “Visibility” drop down menu, choose to enable or disable the track type. By default, it is enabled. If disabled, it won’t be shown across Libretime or in the API for developers.
  8. Click Save.

Using track types with the uploaded tracks
