There are two ways to create your own soundtrack:
1. Choose tags - select your sound, genre, and energy level. This feature is easy to use and allows you to create a unique, brand-fitting sound in minutes.
2. Use playlist - use a Spotify playlist as a basis for a soundtrack. The songs from your playlist are included along with similar ones to create your soundtrack.
It is important to keep in mind your business type and the general ambiance you want to present to your customers. For example, if you have a rock bar you might select high energy rock and perhaps even a certain decade. If you own a spa, you might avoid selecting a “rugged” or “expressive” sound.
Use the create tab in the iOS or Android app, or when logged into your account online. Select the option to create a soundtrack from tags. Fill in the ingredients of your soundtrack which include the Energy, Genre, Sound and Decade. In this step, you will also be able to choose if you want to allow explicit content or not.
Once you are satisfied with your selection, click on Save Soundtrack to give it a name and color. After it is saved, it will be stored in your music.
Improve your result when creating a soundtrack
This feature works by including songs in your soundtrack as you select genres, sounds, decades and energies. Note that if you, for example, don’t select any genre, you will get a soundtrack containing all genres. The same logic applies to all categories.
The categories Energy and Sound can be used to broaden the range of soundtracks when used properly. For example, selecting both "low" and "very low" Energy levels rather than just "low" will ensure more content is shown. This also applies to the "sound" as long as contrasting sounds are not used, such as both "youthful" and "mature."
Genre and Decade are categories used to narrow down your sound, so be sure to keep in mind the energy and sounds you chose in order to make sure there are plenty of options for you. For example, if you choose "low" Energy paired with “techno” Genre, you will not have much to choose from. Keeping in mind which Genres and Decades go with your selected Energy and Sound will ensure you have plenty of soundtracks to choose from.
When using a Spotify playlist, you instantly generate a new Soundtrack based on it. You can use any playlist with a minimum of 5 songs and a Soundtrack will be generated with up to 300 added songs that match the vibe of the original Spotify playlist. This will guarantee there is plenty of content to avoid repetition.
Please note that not all of the songs from your playlist may be available in our music library. You will notice this if some of the songs from your playlist are not added to your soundtrack.
To get started, simply click on create and choose the option to create a soundtrack from playlist. Drag & drop a playlist or click on Connect to Spotify.
If the headphone symbol next to the imported songs is grey, it means it's unavailable to preview but it is still available to play.
Please note that removing added songs on lists where there are fewer than 300 songs available will only generate further songs being added. The larger your playlist, the easier it is for soundtrack to match similar songs.

1. Go to your music in the top menu and click on the soundtrack you want to edit.

3. Remove a song from the playlist by clicking on the X symbol next to it. If you're unsure which song to remove, you can preview it by clicking on the headphones before removing it.
