A. Adding Audio Files to Your PS3 Hard Drive
  1. Connect an external source (i.e. USB flash drive or external hard drive) that contains audio files to your PS3 via one of the USB ports
  2. From your PS3’s XMB menu navigate to the USB Device under the Music tab
  3. Press Triangle and "Display All'
  4. Navigate to the file you want to copy, press Triangle and select Copy
  5. Repeat #4 for each file you want to use in Sounds of The Show
B. Adding Files to Sounds of The Show
  1. Load MLB 12 The Show and navigate to Options > Sounds of The Show> Playlist Creator
  2. Use the D-pad left/right to move between the left column and the right column.
  3. The left column is your XMB Audio Library and displays all the audio files you have added to your PS3 hard drive. L2/R2 sorts the files by criteria, X tags a file into the playlist displayed in the right column. Files can be tagged into multiple playlists.
  4. The right column is where files are added so that they can be played in menus or attached to in game events. While in this column L2/R2 changes the playlist type, files must be added to In-Game Cues to in order for them to be used to customize players or teams. X removes the file from the current playlist.
  • Jukebox Additions - Files that will play while navigating menus or during games if Music Mode is enabled.
  • In-game Music Cues - Where you will add most files. These can be attached to team specific stadium events and/or home team player specific events such as walk-up music or home run song.
  • Imported Chants - Files that when attached to events and played in game sound like the crowd is chanting them. Traditionally music doesn’t work so well here but a single voice or sounds recorded with mics under the User Recorder do.
  • Imported Yells - Same as chants but are played with just a single voice not the whole crowd.
C. Marking Files in Music Editor
  1. Each file that was added to the In-Game Music Cues category can be marked at up to three different spots so the files can be played from different spots other then the very beginning.
  2. In the left column select the file to be marked. X plays and stops the file.
  3. Use the D-pad to move to the right column and move up/down to select one of the three marks you wish to edit.
  • While the file is stopped, L2/R2 rewinds or fast-forwards the mark.
  • X plays the file from the currently selected mark.
  • While the file is playing, [] can be used to drop the mark selected.
D. Attaching files to Players and Stadium Events
  1. Edit Players allows you to add the marked files from the previous steps to player specific events. Select the player you want to edit, navigate to the Personalize tab, select the event, select the file, and select the mark you wish to play for that event.
  2. Edit Teams allows you to add audio to specific in game events. Select the organization, select the MLB, AAA, or AA team. The top part of the window describes the event currently selected. Select the event you want to edit, select the file, and select the mark you wish to play for the event.

Haha No need to be sorry. It's a common overlooked issue.

Any idea on how I can get my starting pitchers music to work when he's warming up before the game? If it's possible. I already assigned his music as reliever entrance.

How many songs can you import for the in-game cues?

Short answer, 499.

The game combines some lists (Jukebox and in-game cues). If you need more then 499, there are some other techniques that can be used such as clipping songs together in groups of 3.
 
# 17 OhioBobcats @ 04/20/11 12:47 PM
Cool.

My problem was, I imported a ton of songs with the regular audio or whatever, then realized I needed to put them in in-game cues. It limited me to 70 and I was like, wow they really cut back this year. Now I can adjust properly, Thanks!

You can't.

How would this work for someone using an Ipod?

Not sure if recent itunes versions do something different now, but last year when I transferred music to my HDD from an ipod it was a little funky. Itunes created folders on the ipod label with just numbers (01,02,03,04 etc.) and then places individual songs randomly in these folders. The file names for the song files were a jumble of letters and numbers (3hto5h, xn120n). You have no control over the folder structure when itunes is being used.

You can still plug the ipod in and navigate through the folders and files just like I described in the tutorial but finding a specific song is pretty time consuming since you'd have to scroll through folder by folder, file by file. Putting a random mixture of songs on your HDD to play through the jukebox is easy enough, but trying to specifically customize walkups, HR songs, etc could take a while.
