Coaches should review each digital file for quality, timing and completeness. (Please ensure that volume is consistent throughout all cuts of music)

In order to correctly identify each swimmer’s music, please name the file using the specific naming format as indicated below.

Metadata/ ID3Tags

Metadata (also known as ID3 tags for MP3 files) is information (such as title, artist, album, genre etc.) that is stored inside the song file

–This is often different from the name of the file itself. In order to avoid confusion at the competition music table, we ask coaches to ensure that the title of the song file, and the ID3 tag title of the song file are the same

To do this on Windows PC:

Right click on the song file > Select ‘Properties’ > Select the ‘Details’ tab Under the segment called ‘Description,’ change the value of ‘Title’ to match the file name (as per the naming convention outlined above)

To do this in iTunes:

Right click on the song file > Select ‘Get Info’ > Under the ‘Details’ tab, change the value of ’Song name’ to match the file name (as per the naming convention outlined above) > Click OK

Submission Deadline The deadline to send and confirm all routine music files is two weeks prior to competititon
Dropbox access

Access to each clubs dropbox file is sent the Clubs head coaches in late fall.  Head Coaches may then add other coaches to the shared club folder (anyone added tothe folder can upload files.

SSO will not add other coaches to the club files
