Here’s a tutorial about how to make a video in Voloco.

Audio delay

Audio delay while recording in Voloco is due to device/OS level issues. The app does not cause audio delay, delays happen because of the actual phone hardware you are using. There are several features in the app you can use to help with the delay.

1. We recommend recording with a wired headset – Voloco works best for all devices when you do this.

2. You can turn off vocal monitoring so that the delay doesn’t distract you. The vocal monitoring button is in the upper left hand corner of the recording studio screen. Turning off vocal monitoring means you can not hear your voice through your headset while you are recording, but your vocals are being recorded by Voloco.

3. You can fix the delay between the backing track and vocals *after* you record by using Vocal Sync. Vocal Sync is free for all Voloco users. Here is a video explaining how Edit Mode and Vocal Sync work.

If you’d like to see subtitles for the video in a language other than English, go to Settings —>  Subtitles –> Auto Translate and then select a language to see subtitles in your preferred language.

You can share videos made in Voloco directly to social media. Most social media sites do not support audio-only posts.

There are two options to reach a producer on Voloco. The first is by tapping on the button “Buy License” at the top of the beat viewing screen. This will take you to BeatStars website and you can purchase it directly there. Please reference the terms and agreement through BeatStars on use of the beat.

If there is not an option to purchase the beat with “Buy License,” you will need to reach out to the producer directly. Tapping on their name will take you to their profile, which has links to contact the producer directly through their social profiles.
