;==== Play Selection Title====
:Type any part of a title to search
:Select arrangement, available instruments and outside speaker status before pressing play
;==== Albums====
:Chime Master has provided each Advanced eXperience system with a library of preset Albums. An album is a collection of selection titles. Each album has music that is appropriate for specific musical styles, seasons or occasions.
:In this menu, you can add, edit or delete albums from your system, as well as add and delete selections from existing albums. If you choose to delete an album or delete a selection from an album, you are not deleting any selections, either custom or prerecorded, from the system itself.
:The Edit Album screen allows you to edit the name of the album. This does not rename the album, but instead creates a copy of the original album with the new name. The new album will not be included in seasons until you edit each season that needs it. You should also remove the original album to prevent duplicated music in the season.
;==== Selection Titles====
:Show in Default Library - Determine whether the title will be displayed when you are searching in your Default Library.
:Allow in SmartAlmanac - Select if this title may play when the AX carillon chooses a SmartAlmanac selection. The title must be in an album that is linked to a season before it will play as an Almanac Selection.
;==== Seasons====
:SmartAlmanac<sup>™</sup> Advanced eXperience provides lets you set-it-and-forget-it then enjoy always appropriate music year after year.
:With Chime Center you can set beginning and ending dates for each music season, determine which albums play during a season and even create your own seasons.
:Display beginning and ending dates for active seasons (enter a start date and number of days to look ahead). Each seasonal date will be displayed with its active season.
==== Custom ringing ====
Beginning with version 1.4.8, you will find Custom Ringing on Chime Center's Music menu.
==== Uploads ====
;Upload MIDI
:Millennium and Platinum systems support MIDI file uploads. You can create chime and carillon arrangements of your own using popular notation programs such as Sibelius or Finale. Save the finished arrangement as a MIDI 0 or 1 file. Uploaded files appear in the User Recordings album and may be copied or moved to other albums for SmartAlmanac play.
