Performing with SLM 4.0
« on: June 30, 2014, 04:30:38 AM »
Help!

I've just been automatically updated to 4.0 unexpectedly and I'm using it for a gig tonight. My biggest issues at the moment is that I can no longer see how long a track has been running for, there's no countdown. I can't add new songs while a track is playing? The only way I've found to do this is to click edit which stops the music dead which is not good when you're trying to adjust during a gig. Finally I can't switch between songs without the music stopping. Is there a performance mode somewhere that I'm missing where I can do all these things like I used to or is this feature gone?

Very unhappy at the moment! We perform 6 nights a week and usually set list maker is spot on but if I can't adjust as we go then I cannot use it anymore.

Please help

1) If you use a layout that includes the recording controls, or if you add the recording controls to the layout you're using, you can see the elapsed time and the progress slider there.

2) Were you able to add songs to a show in the Perform window without interrupting a recording before? I don't remember ever testing that.

3) Were you able to change songs in the Perform window while the recording from a previous song kept playing? I don't remember.

I'm not sure if I can make 2 and 3 work like you remember them working, but I can at least put it on my wish list.

Meanwhile, these resources will orient you to the new version:

And please see my recommendations for musicians who perform as often as you do:
