Rehearsal Mix

The RehearsalMix integration allows you to link to audio mixes included with your RehearsalMix account. RehearsalMix is a product made by MultiTracks.com that provides different audio mixes for each part or instrument on the original recording of most popular worship songs. A paid RehearsalMix account is required.

Playback

This integration also allows you to import your playlist into their Playback software for use during rehearsals and services. You can learn more about how in their documentation.

Notice

Only Organization Administrators can enable RehearsalMix, but once it's enabled, any Editor can add mixes to arrangements.

Enable the Integration

Before you can use RehearsalMix, you need to link your Planning Center account with your RehearsalMix account.

To enable the RehearsalMix integration, go to the Songs page, click the gear icon menu, and select RehearsalMix.

Important

People with Editor and above privileges will be able to see the gear icon and check integration settings, but only Organization Administrators can enable or disable the integrations.

To enable the integration:

  1. Click Enable Integration, and then log in to your MultiTracks.com account.

  2. Click Connect in the Connected Accounts section.

  3. Authorize each person who should be able to access RehearsalMixes. See the instructions here.

Notice

When RehearsalMix is enabled, a File Tag Group with File tags will be automatically created for RehearsalMix.

Adding RehearsalMixes to your Arrangements

In the song arrangement, click the + button in the Files section.

  1. Select the RehearsalMix tab.

  2. Search RehearsalMix for the Song Arrangement you're looking for. You can modify this search.

  3. Select album art to hear a preview.

  4. Select the + to select that arrangement.

Once you select the +, wonderful things begin to happen!

If you didn't name your arrangement, we'll rename it to match the arrangement/artist from RehearsalMix. In addition, we'll automatically populate the length, BPM, and meter. Plus, the album artwork is attached as well.

You'll see a horizontal line in the Arrangement and each Key box. Everything under that line is a RehearsalMix audio track.

Unlinking and Re-linking a Mix

Sometimes you may find it necessary to unlink or re-link a RehearsalMix from an Arrangement.

From the Arrangement page, click the plus icon, as if you were going to add a new file.

  1. Click the RehearsalMix tab.

  2. Click unlink next to the arrangement you'd like to remove.

  3. You can then link that arrangement (or any other).

Missing Files?

When on the Arrangement page are there RehearsalMix files that appear to be missing? There are two possible causes for this in most situations:

  • RehearsalMix doesn't have those files for the key(s) you have chosen.

  • There was an error when the files were linked.

To find out which of these applies, go directly to the RehearsalMix page for the song and arrangement you need. On the RehearsalMix tab, you'll see all of the keys available.

If you were hoping to do this song in F#, you won't have any RehearsalMix tracks. You'll need to pick one of the available keys on your Arrangement Page in Services if you want a RehearsalMix for that song.

If the key you have selected is available on RehearsalMix, then this indicates there was an error when the song was linked. To fix this, you'll want to unlink and then re-link the mix. Scroll up to the previous section on Unlinking and Relinking a Mix for instructions on this process.

Sending Instructions to your Team

From the People page, filter for the team members that you email, and click the envelope icon.

Enter the email text. Here is some great sample text for you to copy and paste:

      We're starting to add new audio files to some songs called Rehearsal Mixes. You may start to see specific mixes, like Drums Mix, Bass Mix, Electric Guitar 1 Mix, or Alto Mix
. Rehearsal Mixes have your part turned up louder than the overall mix. Sometimes there might even be more than one mix so you can pick between parts. Be sure to use these whenever you want.
