The app doesn't change your chords unless you transpose them. I think it's a pretty rare situation to play a song in F#/Gb and different band members want to spell it different ways, so I wouldn't change the functionality just for that, but you could handle that with the Personal Chords field (copy the chords into the Personal Chords field and then write them differently).

I'm aware that I can transpose down, then up and save, but it doesn't solve the problem that different musicians have different preferences.

Why not simply apply the "Enharmonic Preference" regardless of whether the song has been transposed or not, or apply tranpose with offset 0 if the preference i applied during transpose?

Aha, that makes sense, thanks.

If you are not transposing, then the app will display whatever you saved on the song edit page. So if you want to display a song as F# major, you will need to save it as F# major.

If you already entered it as Gb major and want to change it, you can edit the song and transpose down to F, then up to F#, then leave the song and it will auto-save with those chords.

Yes, you can send and receive MIDI messages with other MIDI-capable apps on the same device, but the apps that come with home lighting systems or other home automation products typically don't support MIDI, which is a music industry thing.

Thanks, Arlo. Am I misremembering or is there a possible way to communicate with another app on the same device with Bandhelper, and this one just isn't the right type? I have a Behringer XR18 mixer and, while I have Bandhelper communicating with it via MIDI over Bluetooth, I have some other ideas that app to app communication might be handy for.

Thanks,

Repertoire Help / "Enharmonic Preference" not ap...
Last post by pheldal - June 26, 2024, 05:40:44 AM
Is there a preference somewhere that will make "Enharmonic Spelling" be applied even if Personal Transpose is 0?

-----

Problem: "Enharmonic Spelling"-preference is not applied if the song is not transposed.

For example a song with chords written into BH in Gb-major is not displayed as F#-major when the user indicates to prefer # over b. It is possible to quickly hit transpose-key down, then up to have it displayed as the user wishes, but that should not be necessary.

Solution: apply the #/b-preference even when personal transpose is 0.

My guess is these can only be controlled by their own app and the app can't be controlled by other apps.

Repertoire Help / Bluetooth Tube Light Integrati...
Last post by AcoustiCafe - June 24, 2024, 07:19:20 PM
Hi folks,
I'm getting a couple of these Brightown Smart RGB LED Floor Lamps for my acoustic group to attach to my pair of Bose L1 Compact speakers for backlighting: https://www.amazon.com/Brightown-Control-Million-Setting-Rotatable/dp/B0CQ4C26QF?th=1

They have a bluetooth App for control, and I have another pair of bluetooth app-controlled LED lights for front lighting, but I'm not sure if they use the same app. Has anyone has ever set up one of these Amazon bluetooth lighting apps to be controlled from Bandhelper? Either directly, or by communicating with the native lighting app?

Thanks,
Jeff

Last post by iamcrush - June 24, 2024, 05:43:16 PM
Ok I've found some things close to what I am looking to achieve. @arlo admin seems to have all the knowledge.

I would like to be able to go to a scene in clip vue and just cue up the track I would like the drummer to then start the scene from his midi controller so that he is not spending so much time searching for the song scene and thinking that if I can select the song in band helper it would move to that scene in Ableton live but not start it can someone please help me  Thanks in advance
