Custom songs and choreography files
Your custom choreographies and custom songs can be found/installed in Audio Trip’s “Songs” folder. See the instructions below for how to locate this folder on your device:
Connect your Quest to your PC or Mac via USB. See these instructions for details and troubleshooting if your Quest does not show up on your computer.
Inside your Quest, click to “Allow” your computer to access its files as shown below:
Now you should see the Quest listed as a drive on your computer. On Windows, this will look like:
Now navigate to the following folder on your Quest:
Quest\Internal shared storage\Android\data\com.KinemotikStudios.AudioTripQuest\files\Songs
In that folder you will find all your .ats files, which are the choreographies you have created, ready for sharing. Or if you are loading songs or choreographies from another source, this is where you will copy them (including .ats files and accompanying audio files).
PC VR (Oculus Rift/S, Steam, Viveport, etc)
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the following folder:
C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\LocalLow\Kinemotik Studios\Audio Trip\Songs\
Or you can just paste the following into the address bar of Windows Explorer:
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Kinemotik Studios\Audio Trip\Songs
You will now see any .ats files you have created, which are the custom choreographies you have created. This is also the folder where you will drop any custom songs.
Configuring Custom Songs
To use a custom song, first you will need to make sure the song is in Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) format. You can easily convert virtually any audio file to this format using a free tool such as Audacity to open the original and then export it to a .ogg file. WAV files are also supported, but we recommend using OGG for its smaller file size. We are working on adding support for MP3s in the future.
Once you’ve dropped a song into the game’s Songs folder, it will appear at the bottom of the songs list under “New Songs” when you select “Custom” from the top of the menu.
Once you select your new song, you will see a menu for configuring it:
- Press to set the title of the song.
- Press to set the artist of the song.
- These buttons let you switch between automatic and manual BPM detection
- Auto BPM detection will attempt to automatically configure the beat timing of the song.
- Manual BPM will allow you to press the Play button and then click the trigger of your controller to the beat of the song to set the timing of the beats. You will see the running average of the BPM displayed just below the song timeline (fig 7). It is recommended to keep tapping out the beats until this number starts to stabilize. Once you think you have a good idea of the correct BPM, you can then tweak it with the + and - buttons (fig 8) next to the BPM display.
- Slide to set the start time of the song. This is useful for snipping out long intros you don’t want to be part of the playable part of the song.
- Slide to set the end time of the song. This is useful for removing ending silence, etc, and determines the exact time at which the song is considered “over” and the summary score is displayed.
- This will pulse to the beat helping you ensure that the beats are not only at the right BPM, but are on-time with the correct whole beats.
- Displays the current BPM setting (either automatically detected, or manually set)
- (Manual BPM mode only) These + and - buttons allow you to tweak the BPM setting in small steps. Most songs have round numbered BPMs, so if you wind up with a BPM like 129.97, it is usually a good idea to round it to the next nearest whole or half beat per minute.
- (Manual BPM mode only) This displays the precise start time of the first beat of the song. NOTE: This is different from the start time of the song. This is the time of the first whole beat after the start of the song. Use the + and - buttons to tweak this if you notice by watching the beat metronome (fig 6) that the whole beats are not in sync with the audible whole beats. If the flashes are a little after the audible beat, use “-” to step the whole beat time to be a little earlier. If the flash is a little before the audible beat, use “+” to step the beats to be a little later.
- Once you have finished setting up your song, press Save to return to the song list, where you will now find your newly added song listed alphabetically in the custom songs list.
