Upbeat Music App
 
 
Hello!
 
 
It's been a busy few weeks for us — we just crossed 46,000 users and are getting traffic from all 50 states and over 90 countries! It has been a true privilege to build an app that is fostering such global connection, and we can't wait to show you what's next.
 
We send out this newsletter periodically to keep you in the loop with what's new and what we're working on. Catch up on our last newsletter here.
 
 
Announcing Upbeat Perform
 
Last week, we released a new product, Upbeat Perform! Here's what you need to know:
 
 
Create 100-person virtual performances in minutes
 
With Upbeat Perform, you can create beautiful virtual performance videos with up to 100 people in minutes for concerts. No video editing skills or special hardware required. Simply send an invite link to your students, and as they submit their parts, Upbeat Perform will automatically create a video for you. You can also edit students' parts if they're too soft or loud, or calibrated incorrectly.
 
It's only been a few days, but we've already had more than 1,000 performance videos created from nearly 10,000 recordings using Upbeat Perform.
 
Check out this one,
Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, by the Newport High School Chamber Orchestra in Seattle. 
Accompany yourself
 
Upbeat Perform also allows you to submit many recordings for the same video. Go ahead — play all the parts and experiment with new harmonies!
 
Upbeat is now "Upbeat Live"
 
Don't worry, the Upbeat you've been using isn't going away!
We're renaming Upbeat to Upbeat Live. It's the same product you've been using for months and the only real-time virtual music rehearsal tool in the world. 
 
 
Accounts and Pricing
 
Upbeat Perform is absolutely free for everyone to use — anyone can create and download videos with up to 100 parts, with a watermark. You do not need to be an existing Upbeat user or a PRO member to get started.
 
To remove the watermark there is a one-time charge:
  • 2-4 parts: FREE
  • 5-16 parts: $9.99 per performance video
  • 17-100 parts: $39.99 per performance video
 
All users are limited to creating 10 new performance videos per month — with some exceptions (see below).
 
 
Educational and Group Benefits
 
If your school or organization has an educational or group subscription to Upbeat Live, we wanted to give you a little something extra.
 
All current PRO Basic Teachers and PRO Unlimited users on an educational or group plan get 2 free "no watermark" exports — a $79.98 value! These are already loaded on your account if you are eligible.
 
Additionally, these users can create unlimited videos on Upbeat Perform - you aren't limited to 10 per month.
 
 
We can't wait to see your virtual concerts! 
 
New Features on Upbeat Live
End Room For All
 
If you're the host, when you click the Leave icon, you will now have the option to end a room, removing all participants.
 
Better Backing Tracks
 
Since we first launched backing tracks, we've made several improvements. Now, audio in most major formats (.mp3, .wav, and .m4a) can all be converted into backing track (.uptrk) files. Additionally, if the video recordings are shorter than the backing track, the track will be auto-trimmed to the appropriate length.
 
 
Resources Page
 
We've been building out a new resources page on our website. Head over there to find tutorial videos, our Getting Started and Troubleshooting Guides, and past newsletters.
 
 
Thanks for reading, and for your support! We're honored to be building musical connections across the world and we appreciate you being a part of this adventure.
