Do these bright white cables remind our readers of anything? How about the giver of life to new data stored on your iDevice of choice?
You got it! The above is an iPod/iPhone/iPad transfer cable and it is the key ingredient to transferring MP3 files downloaded from AudioAcrobat.
In today’s posting, we will take our readers through the process of downloading an AudioAcrobat recording from their account and transferring or syncing the file(s) to their iProduct using iTunes.
Step 1: MP3 Download
Before one can sync their AudioAcrobat recording in iTunes, the first step is to make sure that the file resides on the hard drive of the computer on which syncing will be performed.
1. Login to your AudioAcrobat account
2. Click the blue “Audio” tab
3. Click the title of the Audio you wish to download
4. Click “Download Audio”

Step 2: Import to iTunes
Before one can import to iTunes, the software must first be installed and opened. Once opened, it is helpful to create a new playlist for which the media to be synced can be imported to.
Using the drag + drop method is by far the easiest method of importing your MP3 file(s) to iTunes.
A helpful trick that we use is to re-size the iTunes window on your screen so that you can visually see the file on your desktop/in its containing folder and your iTunes playlist at the same time. Click and drag the file from its location to your iTunes playlist and iTunes imports immediately!
This is also the perfect time to make sure the meta data (ID3 Tags) is up-to-date for your recordings. This includes Artist, Title, Year, AlbumArt and more.

Step 3: Sync
Having successfully created a playlist of one or more AudioAcrobat recordings to sync to our readers’ iDevice, the next step is to select this device from the list along the left sidebar in iTunes.
After clicking on the desired device along the left, our readers will want to click ‘Music‘ from the device category selections along the top row of the iTunes window.
Our readers should then be able to select the desired playlists to sync to their selected device from the center column near the bottom of the iTunes window.
After selecting the playlists to be synced by placing check marks in the box(es) to the left, our readers can begin the process by clicking the ‘Apply‘ button at the bottom of the iTunes window.
Our readers should at this point either be waiting for iTunes to finish or are already out and about enjoying their AudioAcrobat recordings on their favorite portable iDevice.
