File Format Please note that digital music will be used at this competition. There must be one digital file for each registered routine in an mp3 format, with a minimum required resolution of 192kbps.
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.

IMPORTANT: Please make sure not to have any special characters (accents/punctuation marks, #, $, & etc.) in your file name – your song file may not download correctly and will be missing from the competition folder. Note that underscores are acceptable and can be used to separate words.

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 two weeks prior to competition
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 to the folder can upload files.

SSO will not add other coaches to the club files
