GMEA All State Download Frequently Asked Questions
- Why should I download these files? While you may play these files from most smart devices, the operating software on many smart devices won’t allow it. For this reason, it is suggested that you use a computer to download the files to a location on your computer you will have easy access to.
- What do you mean easy access? For example, on your computer you could create a folder on your desktop labeled “GMEA AS Rehearsal Tracks.” Then, once you have downloaded the tracks, just copy them to the new folder for quick access.
- What if I just want to play them on my smart device? Once you have downloaded the files to your computer you can manage them just like you would any other mp3 files. You can drag and drop the folder into your music folder on Apple devices, for example, and sync them to iTunes. On other operating systems you would move the files to your smart device just like you would any other music file from your computer.
- Can I change the names of the files? DO NOT change the names of the files as it could create conflicts that could prevent playback. Also note, in the download links the files for each group are in sequence in the expected performance order.
- How will these files play on my computer or a smart device? Once you have the files loaded to your computer you can play them with any default media player that plays mp3 files. Once you move them to your smart device the same will apply.
