The Splice app can privately and securely back up every save and sample of your Ableton Live, Logic, Garage Band, and FL Studio projects. First, make sure you're logged into the Splice app. If you haven't already, you can download the app here.
How Splice syncs your work
You can set Splice to sync in two ways, which you can change in the app’s preferences page.
1. Sync projects in the Splice folder (default option)
After installing, a Splice folder and shortcut will automatically be created. Any projects saved in the Splice folder (or any of its subdirectories) will sync automatically. You can also drag and drop existing projects into your Splice Folder to sync them.
2. Sync projects anywhere
You can turn on the 'Sync from anywhere' option in preferences. With this option selected, every time you save a new project, Splice will ask you if you want to sync it. If you confirm, then that project file and all future changes will be synced.
Regardless of which sync preference you choose, any project file tracked with Splice will back up new saves automatically. You can access a project file's previous saves on the project timeline. This timeline is private and only viewable by you and invited collaborators.
Some DAW-specific things to know:
- Ableton Live - New .als files in the same project folder will be considered different projects.
- Logic Pro X - Splice only supports projects in the 'package' format, not the 'folder' format. Using Alternatives and certain built in sounds can cause issues. To learn more, please read this article.
- FL Studio - Every .flp file will be considered a new project in Splice.
- Studio One - Currently in Beta and only supports .song files (not projects yet).
