Frequently asked questions

We’ve collected all the questions that have come up over time. We hope you can find the answer you’re looking for right here.

About the app (4)

How does the music in SoundTale work?
In SoundTale, the music is not divided into songs - you can choose from over 20 different musical moods. The moods are called ‘calm’ or ‘creepy’ etc. Once you select a mood, a never ending flow of fitting music starts. We’ve composed a huge amount of short music parts that will be put together in many different combinations to avoid repetitiveness.
Can the app run in the background on Android?
The general answer to this is yes. There are some older phones that can have slight problems with it, though. If you experience a problem, the first thing to check would be the power saving options of your device. There, you can allow background activity for the app. As the exact settings are different on every phone model, you might need to play around with these a little and see which one works.

However, the SoundTale receiver on Android does not work properly in the background.
Can I load my own sounds into the app?
Not yet, but in the future we want to add this to the app. Please note that this is really not the main concept of the app – it’s meant to be an all in one package.
Can I use the app for my pen&paper stream or other pen&paper related content I produce?
In general, using it for pen&paper streams is possible. But there are a few requirements. Please write us a mail to contact@soundtale.net – don’t worry, we’re happy to hear from you!

Do not use it without talking to us about it first.

Buying a SoundTale account (5)

How can I get a SoundTale account?
At the moment, you can only get SoundTale accounts in the android app in the google play store. There you can purchase an android account. There will be an option for a multiplatform account as well, which works on Android devices and Windows computers / laptops. If you want to try the android version first, you can.
Why does SoundTale use an account system?
Using accounts for Soundtale makes it easier to access the app and your account no matter where you go – you simply need the free downloadable version of SoundTale. On top of that, you can save your in app settings online and load them on another device once you’re logged in.
Can I use SoundTale on multiple devices?
Yes, you can use your account on all of your own compatible devices. Please note that, like with most account systems, only one device can be logged in at a time.
Do I need to be online all the time?
No, you don’t. You know why? Because it would suck. We’ve made it possible to play offline for some time before you’re asked to log in again.
We want to play online. Do my players need to purchase an account to use the SoundTale receiver?
No, they don’t. The DM needs an account, the others can join you without.

Problems with SoundTale (3)

The app sounds stuttering - what can I do?
Some phones have a problem with the app’s samplerate. Try clicking the ’44.1’ button at the bottom of the setting menu and the receiver page.
My players can’t connect to my room in the receiver.
Make sure that you’re all using the same version of SoundTale. The app version can be seen in the left corner of the main menu.
I can’t hear the music.
First, check the mute buttons and volume sliders in the settings menu. Next, make sure not too many apps are open while using SoundTale. As there’s a lot of music and sounds in there, the app needs to load a lot of data into the RAM. If that doesn’t work, restart the app or the phone. If you still experience problems, you can unload some music styles you don’t need in your session by holding down on the music style buttons in the music menu. This can help your phone managing all the data.
The app does not work in the background on Android.
If you experience a problem, the first thing to check would be the power saving options of your device. There, you can allow background activity for the app. As the exact settings are different on every phone model, you might need to play around with these a little and see which one works.
When installing, my PC tells me SoundTale could be a threat to the system.
We know about this problem but it keeps appearing on some systems.
I think I have noticed a major bug. Where can I report it?
You can write us at contact@soundtale.net – we’re thankful for your bug reports! For Android: Please send us the name of your phone or tablet model and your android version, too.
