The Get Data tab

Before you can set rueda calls for a song, you need 2 things:

  1. The music file (usually MP3) for the song
  2. A matching "beats" file, that tells RuedaMatic where the beats are in the song

As time goes by, more songs will be available, on the Get Data tab.

Select the "compases_para_canciones" item, and the latest collection of beats for various timba songs will be brought up to date. We'll replace your old beats directory with a new updated version with beats for more songs you can set rueda calls to.

The Get Music tab

Each time a band records a song, it is usually done at a different tempo.

Obviously, the beats you use will need to be accurate for the recording you play... otherwise, timing of the calls will be wrong.

So when we create a beats file to a certain song, there is a "checksum" calculated and saved. When you start playing a song, there will be a warning if the checksum of the file that you play is different.

It's possible you can ignore the warning and the timing could be okay. But more likely, it will be wrong.

For that reason, you can use the Get Music tab to purchase the exact song to match the beats file we supply.
