Replacing tracks in a playlist

I realized that I needed to add more metadata to the mp3s that I have on my page. I've done this with an mp3 editor and I'm ready to upload and replace the files that I have on my page (I have a Soundcloud pro account btw). I have a private playlist that I've been sending out to music blogs and my question is: when I upload and replace the existing tracks will the new tracks automatically go into the playlist that I've been using? I'm worried that when I upload and replace with the new versions that this won't happen and I'll need to create a new playlist and that the link that I've sent out already will no longer be usable. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Hi @Widdendream,

No worries - your playlist basically holds the "ID", or "path" to the track, not the track itself. The path does not change when you're using the replace file feature that is offered to SoundCloud Pro subscribers.

Thus, the playlists will automatically contain the updated versions, so you're all set :)

Hope this helps.
