Repertoire Help / Re: Archiving Set Lists
« Last post by psalisko on August 11, 2020, 01:23:09 AM »
Hi Arlo,

I just started to create events (as well in the past) and link them to the respective setlist. Will the older ones from the previous years automatically moved into a yearly archive folder (e.g. 2018, 2019) right now or will this just happen once when moving from 2020 into 2021?

Thanks,

Peter

Repertoire Help / Re: Using Bandhelper to change snapshots on Behringer mixers

Please see "HOW CAN I SEND MIDI TO ANOTHER APP OR DEVICE TO PERFORM SOME ACTION" in the FAQ:

You can use multiple Bluetooth devices together, so using a foot pedal and a MIDI adapter will be fine.

Repertoire Help / Using Bandhelper to change snapshots on Behringer mixers
« Last post by greiswig on August 08, 2020, 03:06:41 PM »
Hi,

I searched, but couldn't find this. It seems like it should be do-able, but I can't figure out how.

As I run through a set list on my iPad and select the next song, I'd like to have Bandhelper send a snapshot change message to either my X32 or my XAir mixer. So if the first song in the set uses Snapshot 1, and the second song uses Snapshot 4, that second song being selected would automatically change the mixer to Snapshot 4.

I'm not sure this can be done? But it feels like I should be able to do that.

Oh, and importantly, I'm using a bluetooth foot pedal already to page Bandhelper on the iPad, so I can't use something like a bluetooth MIDI adapter, I gather?

Is the MIDI protocol for change commands like that not available? Or do you need a hardwire hookup between the iPad and mixer to accomplish this?

Thank you!

Repertoire always gets me to this day...I can't even spell it. I have been in bands since I was 14 years old....I cannot remember once where one of my bandmates stated....did we get the Repertoire created yet or can you make me a copy of the repertoire....also never saw an enclosed copy of a repertoire in Nashville on display..... It has been and will always be known as a setlist.

That's a fair point. However, Repertoire is not a synonym for Set List. It's a wider concept covering all the songs your band could play, and in BandHelper, it's even wider to cover things connected to songs like MIDI presets. So a friendlier replacement would be Music. However, "music" is even broader and can imply different things in different contexts, while "repertoire" specifically means "music that a band knows how to play."

When I want to work with setlists...just let me go there....99% of the time its to play shows or practice and to streamline this would improve my UI experience. (Also Default the Layouts...one less click. I use the same layout 99.999% of the time)

See the App Shortcuts tutorial to learn how to view set lists in one click, using your default layout, from the main menu: http://www.bandhelper.com/tutorials/app_shortcuts.html

Hey Arlo...its Moon Dog...hope you are well my friend.

I have been thinking about you lately...You saved me so much work because of the way you designed the software....I can't thank you enough.

As far as the titles go, as you may remember I was with you almost from the beginning back in the SetList Maker days. Loved it....

On the iPad.

In thinking about this all the other links you see when you select Repertoire, like Midi Presets, Custom Fields, Layouts etc....none of these are in the Repertoire category from my perspective. What I would do is replace Repertoire with SetList and go straight to the SetLists. You could put Smart lists at the bottom of this page...and put everything else under Settings. Thats the way my mind works....If I am working on Settings I want access to all.

Thanks for letting the community provide feedback.

A potential use case for this:  Currently we (a duo that uses backing tracks) create 3 versions of most backing tracks:
1. The version used in live play (when we used to do that ;-)
2. A version used for member A practice (adding member B's parts)
3. A version used for member B practice (adding member A's parts)

2 and 3 are Smart Copies.

If it had an easy UI (and no latency or mix complications), a simple multitrack capability could eliminate the need for the Smart Copies and separate practice playlists.

It could also be used in live play for situations where some instrument or voice needs to sit out, substituting a pre-recorded version (or vice versa for a guest performer).

To make it easier to manage for these kinds of use cases, I'd prefer some method of marking sub-tracks as 'core', instrument-A, instrument-B, vox-A, etc., and then globally selecting which get played for the practice session or gig.  If selections could only be set on an individual song basis, then I think my current Smart Copy approach is just as convenient for my use cases so I probably wouldn't use the multitrack approach.

Since I am using BandHelper for years, it doesn‘t make any difference to me. If for new customers it easier to acquire them with new module names, I would not mind a change.

Cheers,

Polls / Remixer app idea
« Last post by arlo on August 03, 2020, 11:08:50 AM »
I'm working on a research project involving some 1920's-30's recordings whose arrangements are hard to hear due to the primitive recording technology. I'm re-recording all the parts and want to publish them in a way that people can easily study them -- basically, a simple mixer interface where they can adjust the levels or mute/unmute each track.

I wonder if this could become new functionality within BandHelper, or a separate product. Bands could use it internally to teach original arrangements to their bandmates, or to play dynamic backing tracks on stage. Or they could use it externally to release music to their fans in a more interactive way, either as a free perk for their fans or a source of sales income.

Would you be interested in a way to share multitrack audio files with an interface that lets the listener play with the mix? Select one or more options above.
