This article will show you how to create a Template which can be used when creating a new Pattern Matching job.

Tip: Pattern Matching runs optimally on both Firefox and Chrome.

1) In the main menu, click Visualizer.

2) Search for the call/song of the focal species. Search for a call/song that has a strong signal (low signal-to-noise ratio) and does not overlap with sounds from other species. Alternatively, you can upload recordings from other sources (e.g., xeno-canto) to create a template. 

3) In the Visualizer menu, select Templates. Drag a box around the call/song. Assign a name to the template and select the species/call type. The species/call type should have previously been added to the project. If it wasn't, you will need to Add a Species first, refresh this page, and then resume this process.
