Q: How can I load or save device presets?
A: Right click on any device to open up the device's context menu from where you can load and save presets.
Q: What are hidden assets?
A: When creating assets like samples or presets one can hide them from the community, meaning that they will not appear in other users search results. However when a track is remixable containing hidden assets, users will be able see them when opening your track in the Audiotool application, allowing the artist to make a proper remix. Nevertheless they cannot be copied into another track. This is a more open approach rather than making your assets 'all rights reserved' where the track needs to be private as well and is not allowed to be remixed.
Q: Can I use Audiotool on Linux?
A: Yes. Linux users are advised to use Google Chrome ((link is only visible to registered users)), not Chromium.
Q: Can I use the music I make on Audiotool commercially?
A: Yes, but it is important to make sure you have the permission of any contributors and that you know the origin of any samples you are using before you decide to do anything with your music.
Q: How can I get more followers?
A: The best way is to follow more users yourself. If you give attention to other people's music you are sure to get more attention when it comes to releasing your own. Spamming users' walls with your tracks is not advised if you want people to listen to your music.
