Is there a way to edit sections on Community,Premium and Master Tracks? We are doing "No Longer Slaves" this Sunday and on the bridge, they tag "I am a child of God" 5 times but the bridge is just one long section on the track.
I was wanting to trim that section back to tag "I am a child of God" only 3 times. I know you can do this with custom tracks that i can upload but wanted to see if this was possible with Community,Premium and Master Tracks.
If not, are you guys planning on putting in an editing tool for sections in the future in Prime? Maybe like a start time and end time for each section? Thanks for your help!

Hey Nick,

In PRIME you are able to edit the arrangement of a song by moving, adding, and deleting sections. But there is not a way to edit a section's length. If you wanted to edit the length of a section, you would have to purchase the File Download version of the track, trim the section in Ableton Live or another DAW, and then upload it to your PRIME Cloud. I will pass along the idea of being able to edit the time of a section to our development team.

I did take a look at the track though, and noticed that the bridge was very long. I wasn't able to cut the section exactly where you wanted it, but I did add in a tag section to divide up the bridge and the tag.

Thanks for being a part of the community! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Also, to see the tag section added in the track, you will need to delete the song from your device and re-download it.

To do this on iPad/iPhone:
1. Click Add Song
2. Click Edit (located near the search bar)
3. Click the red button that appears next to the name of the track
4. Click Delete
5. Click Done (located near the search bar)
6. The app will tell you the song has been removed.
7. Click the name of the track again in the Add Song section to re-download it to your device, and you should see the changes.

To do this on PRIME for Mac:
1. Click Add Song
2. Hover your mouse over the BPM of the track
3. Click the three dots that appear
4. Click Delete song from device
5. Once the app says that the track has been removed, click the name of the track in the Add Song section again to re-download it, and you should see the changes.

Hope this helps!
