You can find songs and files in any folder of your Songspace catalog by using the search box above each asset list.

You can also find songs, files, and folders anywhere by using the global search box in the catalog header.

2) Refine your search by applying specific attributes.

Available attributes vary depending on the tab that you're viewing.

3) Press the Enter key or the Search button to start your search.

Search results will be presented on the current page. If you'd like to expand your search beyond the current folder, select the "Search Everywhere" icon to start a global search.
