Updated Song Sections & Guide Cues!

We have rolled out sweeping updates to our default guide cues and song sections. You will notice the changes reflected in the latest update of Playback. Read below for a detailed breakdown of these changes.

New Guide Cues: Clarity

Our guide cues have been completely overhauled for the first time in 10 years. These new cues were professionally recorded in our studio in Austin, TX, where we took time to make them as clear and crisp as possible. In addition to English, we have re-recorded cues for Spanish, Portuguese, and French. We’ve also added a brand-new English cue preset in Playback: “English – Male”, recorded by one of our closest partners. Our hope is that the improved quality of these cues will make them easier for worship teams to follow, while pleasantly standing out in an in-ear mix.

Updated Song Sections: Accuracy

After months of deliberating and planning, we have landed on a list of song sections that will more accurately fit each song. We have added some new sections and tweaked some old ones. We will implement a numeric sequence for certain sections that often repeat with different lyrics (e.g. Chorus 1, Chorus 2, Bridge 1, Bridge 2, etc...) We have made this change for Chorus, Pre-Chorus, and Bridge.

Brand new sections have been added as well:

Post-Chorus – Post-Chorus identifies the occasional section after a chorus with a repeated hook. Refrain was previously used to identify these sections.

Rap – Rap has been added to identify unique rap moments in a song that don’t work as other available song sections.

Turnaround – This identifies the musical moment between verses and choruses, often a repeat of the Intro musical idea. Interlude previously identified these sections.

Finally, some existing song sections have been re-defined to more accurately represent their intended musical purpose:

Interlude will be used in more short-section scenarios (1-2 measure transitions), with Turnaround defining the sections that would have previously been called Interlude.

Refrain will label sections that have musical ideas with a tag or repeated lyrical idea over them. This usually occurs at the end of a Chorus or Post-Chorus, transitioning into the next song section. Think of a Refrain as a Turnaround with a lyrical tag in it.
