Set List Maker 5.2 for iOS / 2.2 for Android
« on: October 30, 2017, 09:27:36 AM »
I've just released a major update with significant new features. You can read all the details in the release notes, or watch one of two new demo videos:

iOS release notes: http://www.arlomedia.com/apps/setlistmaker/support/release_notes.html#ios_5_2
Android release notes: http://www.arlomedia.com/apps/setlistmaker/support/release_notes.html#android_2_2
Demo video (detailed): https://youtu.be/4p3Nu0Qwgsc
Demo video (condensed): https://youtu.be/cV6ozD-GPkc

Here are the contents of the detailed video:

00:36 two columns for lyrics or documents
01:56 lyrics and document markers and pagination
06:21 karaoke lyrics
07:30 new layout actions
10:11 layout layering
11:34 scroll multiple buttons
12:12 put any text in brackets, and hide/show bracketed chords
13:09 break/pause timer
13:37 search for lyrics and song facts
14:13 smart copies
17:17 list filters
18:13 scroll song list remote control action and next preset or song action
20:44 layout MIDI presets
22:09 paired presets

As with any major release, it's best not to install right before a gig, and if the app is critical to your live show, it's best to wait a couple weeks for any initial issues to be addressed.

I'll update this post if any issues are discovered.

Here are the major issues I'm tracking in the new release:

- Opening any popup window crashes the app (Android) - fix submitted Nov. 1 (2.2.1)
- Auto-scrolling a PDF is jerky (Android) - fix submitted Nov. 1 (2.2.1)
- Adding a database crashes the app (Android) - fix submitted Nov. 1 (2.2.1)
- Turning on Send MIDI layout action crashes the app (iOS) - fix submitted Nov. 1 (5.2.1)
- Drag button on Edit Songs page might be pushed off the screen (Android) - fix submitted Nov. 7 (2.2.2); workaround: use this page in landscape orientation
- Next/Previous Page functions are erratic in multi-page documents (iOS and Android) - fix submitted Nov. 7 (5.2.2 / 2.2.2); workaround: change pages by dragging the document
- Auto-scrolling doesn't start from the same action that toggles a full-screen document (iOS) - fix submitted Nov. 7 (5.2.2); workaround: start auto-scrolling from a different action, like a two-fingered tap
- App crashes on launch on Spanish language devices (Android) - fix submitted Nov. 14 (2.2.3); workaround: change your device language to another language, then launch app and change Settings > Interface Language to another language, then return your device language to Spanish

Hi Arlo,

thanks for your great work! I use setlistmaker since nearly 6 years!

I have some Questions about the new Features in 5.2.
  • Is it possible to hide/show bracketed chords song based and not as a database option?
    Maybe even both choises would be useful.
  • This would also be very useful for the “transpose recordings” function, because I use some recordings several times in different databases and different tunings/pitches.
  • Is it possible to use the function “two columns for lyrics or documents” also song based and not as a Layout option because some lyrics in a database are perfect for it, others are not?

Thanks in advice!

No, this setting will remain until you change it, so you would have to switch it on and off as you move through your songs. I think it would be more confusing if this were set at the song level, and there might be a better solution for whatever you're wanting to do here.

This would also be very useful for the “transpose recordings” function, because I use some recordings several times in different databases and different tunings/pitches.

In that case, especially if you are using the recordings in a performance, I'd suggest pitch-shifting the recordings in an audio editor and then attaching multiple versions of the recordings in BandHelper. You will probably get better quality than you'd get from the built-in pitch shifting, which is meant more for practicing.

No, sorry, this is set at the layout level. But I could see the value of changing that at the song level and I'll put that on my wish list.

Another issue.

Highlighting color has changed? Not a big deal but now when using multiple midi button option in landscape layout on iOS the midi titles are cut off horizontally- as if there isn't enough space for all the info.

Also, even with auto select next song set to end of recording - it now auto selects next song based on duration. I guess this setting moved or has defaulted to that as a bug? I can't find it. If you use auto start recording or automation this is a potential disaster. Did I miss something? Thanks

I noted this in an earlier post, and so would like to add a vote to stop this new behavior.  (BTW, my duo partner also confirms it didn't used to advance based on duration before v3.2 when using automation/recordings, so not just my imagination :)

I'm not sure what you're describing here. Please submit a help ticket with more details.

The new version will only trigger a song completion action at the end of the song duration if no automation track is playing and no recording is playing. Are you waiting longer than the duration of the song before starting your automation track or recording?

Also, please don't bring up the same issue in multiple threads; then I have to spend time cross referencing all your messages that I could be spending improving the product.
