Converting Solo Projects to Collab Projects (New!)

Users on a free plan: Upon opening your solo projects, they’ll be converted to collab projects automatically.

All collab projects converted from solo projects created before September 1, 2021 will not be counted towards your project limit. That means you can access them forever. 

Users on any paid plan: You can choose which solo projects in your account you’d like to convert to collab projects. Here’s how to manually convert a project. 

  1. Open a solo project you’d like to convert. 
  2. You should be able to see a “Collaborate” button in the top right corner. Click on the button to convert the project.
  3. You’ll receive a prompt notifying you of the project limit.
  4. Click on “Convert” to confirm.


Creating a Collaboration Project

  1. On the studio’s dashboard, click on the “Create a project” button.
  2. For users on a Free, Starter, Creator and Pro plan, a new project you create is automatically a collab project.  
  3. For users on an Intro, Power and Premium plan, you’ll be given an option to choose between a solo and a collab project. Select “Collaboration project”.

4. Alternatively, you can create a new project from within the studio. Click on a folder icon on the right hand side and choose “New collaboration project”.

5. A project settings will appear on the screen where you can upload an image as well as setting a project name, description, genre.

Inviting Collaborators

  1. Click “Collaborate” on the top right corner to invite anyone to your project.
  2. Enter your collaborator’s email address or Soundation username. Click “Send”. Your collaborator will receive an invitation by email.

3. You can also copy and share a link to your collaboration project.

Importing and Recording Audio

  1. To import audio into the collaboration project, right-click anywhere in the arrangement to open a menu.
  2. Click “Import audio” and choose a file you want to import.
  3. The audio will be shared with your collaborators in an instant.
  4. Sounds shared in the collaboration project will appear under Imported Sounds tab in the sound library. They can be accessed by anyone in the project.

Setting Permissions

Every collaboration project is automatically set as private. Only users invited by the project owner will have permission to collaborate. However, other users can still send a collaboration request to the project’s owner by clicking on the project link. The project owner will receive a collaboration request by email where they can turn down or accept the request.

  • “Enable collaborators to publish and download track” lets anyone in the project exports the track as mp3 or wav file and publish the track on their Soundation profile.
  • “Post project to the community to find collaborators” automatically shares your project on “Collab Live” channel on Soundation’s official Discord server.
  • “Auto accept all requests” allows anyone that click on a project link to join the project without the project owner getting collaboration requests by email.
