How to use the 'Sound Copy' App Extension

Post by pwnified » Sat Jul 15, 2017 3:08 pm

Sound Copy is an external app extension that allows copying of audio files to the General Pasteboard outside of MultiTrack, using the Intua Copy Style of data format. Using this app extension will save a step, it is useful to avoid a file copy into multitrack and subsequent copy to the pasteboard. It also avoids cluttering up the shared folder in multitrack and all the wasted filespace and it's faster.

The Sound Copy App Extension should appear when the iOS sharing menu is being shown, but if not, it may need to be enabled. Tap the 'More' button from the Sharing menu of the other app:

When you tap the button for Sound Copy, information about the file will be displayed as well as conversion options for how the copy should be made to the General Pasteboard. The Intua Copy Style supports all the common wav formats:

Next tap the 'Copy' button to make the copy. The audio will be converted to wav and up or down sampled to the selected samplerate and bit depth, and placed on the General Pasteboard.

You can then open MultiTrack or any other app that supports the Intua Copy Style and paste onto a track:
