music sheets on tablet
« on: September 06, 2017, 11:10:54 pm »
Recently saw a talented guitarist with the cords and words displayed on a tablet. Someone said that with this particular program you can change keys and auto scroll is song is longer than a full screen. Anyone know the name of this program?

Does anyone  know of a program for this or can you describe how it can be put on the tablet say in PDF format that would be useable.

Don't want to spend lots of cash on this - looking for a moderate approach.

Have a look at Songsterr, I think it could be the one in question - I use it myself.

There are quite a few apps doing this.
I use Songbook ChordPro. It's also great for sharing in the band.

I use Onsong on my Ipad. It's quite versatile. Not sure if there is a version for Android.

I like the look of OnSong Hilts...unfortunate it's only for IOS and not Android as well.

Guitar tab pro does the same thing.
I will eventually play as well as David Gilmour - even if it takes me another 40 years.

I have tab pro already but tend to us it just to find songs..it's not quite got the functionality to organise things for you personally...or perhaps I just need to look at it a little more. Songbook Chordpro looks like a good alternative so I may investigate that as well. It struck me only because when I looked at the OnSong website they showed an image of a stack of binders just like mine  :D

Songbook has both Android devises, PC and Mac.
It will transcribe to different keys and you can write your own music for it.

That's the one I use. Highly recommendable!

Just to be sure, SongBook ChordPro for iOS at $7.99 is what you speak of as shown here?

That's the one I use.
I also have the pc version. For me it's easier to edit songs on that platform as I am the repertoire keeper in the band.

My workflow:

- on the pc version I add songs we are going to play. Meaning copy/paste lyrics from the interweb.
- I usually copy the chords as well just for a starting point.
- then there is a little bit of work of putting chords in placeholders so that Songbook can work with them. This makes it easy to change key on the fly and whatnot. Takes about 5 minutes per song.
- I then play the song and make my own corrections to the chords, making notes on breaks and stuff like that.
- Everytime I save the bandmembers just have to update the songlist from back home. Then every new song and correction is in their songbook, and we are all practicing from that same master.
- During band practice we try different keys to make sure the singer is in a comfortable range of her voice. Very easy in Songbook to change keys throughout the song. I always bring my ipad.
- changes during the band session is not populated to the band because I'm a cheap bastard and do not have an ipad with a sim card.
- I note the changes in Songbook during practice and populate when I get back home.

We are not using the link via bluetooth functionality during band practice.
Some members are always low on battery and bluetooth drinks a lot of juice

There's no Android version of Onsong but if you're happily commited to apple the feature set is rich and there is a scrolling option and a foot pedal control option if you buy the hardware. I've also used backing drum tracks with it and it has a PC console feature for cut and paste operations from the likes of tab pro or ultimate guitar.

I'm just starting to get to grips with Setlists http://www.setlistsapp.com. It seems to do most of what others have discussed here and the display is very cool. Also, I gave some feedback about adding a setlist organisation feature and the developer was very responsive.
