Beta-Release 25 (9.1.1)

Startup-Performance

To improve the startup performance SongRepertoire now handles the song metadata in a local database file on your devices.
When navigating to the list of all your songs or opening a playlist, the song data is loaded in the background. You can see this process via a progress bar on the bottom of the screen.
With the first start of SongRepertoire after the update this database is created.From then on the startup performance will be much higher.

Midi-Support

It is now possible to send Midi messages to connected devices. Currently SongRepertoire supports PC and CC messages.
You can assign such messages to a song and they are automatically sent as soon as you select this song.
It is also possible to manage your standard messages in a central Midi library and re-use them within multiple songs.

Favorites list

You now can add or remove songs from your personal favorites list directly on the song page or from the list of all your songs.
This automatically creates a favorites list similar to a manually created playlist. The functions on this favorites list are the same as on a normal playlist. You can change the sort order by drag and drop or add blocks.
It is also possible to export or import your favorites list.

Notes

Eventually you want to add notes between the songs of a playlist (for example a few keywords when welcoming the audience, etc.).
In the past you may have added a song to your playlist and used it for such issues.
The new release now supports a new type of item for your playlists called “Notes”. You can use the integrated text editor or your pen to add annotations.
These notes are not shown in the list of all your songs and only available in their own playlist.

Display block details on song page

On the song page you can navigate through a playlist that contains blocks by selecting the next song button.
Prior to this update the block header have not been displayed when moving from the last song of one block to the first song of the next block.
SongRepertoire now also shows the block data between these two songs.
You see the list of songs of the next block and the length of the block.
By tapping a song of the list you can even use it to directly navigate to this song.

Swipe to next song

When viewing a song on the song page you can use a horizontal swipe gesture to move to the next or previous song.
This feature is currently available for all types of chord files except web links and when using the paged view mode for PDF documents.

Lock song page when writing annotations

When writing multiple or longer annotations (for example using the note sheet template and writing your music) touching the screen with your hand is sometimes a problem.
You can now lock the song page manually when starting to write and unlock it at the end.

Hide functions in side menu of song page

Eventually you do not use all functions that are provided in the side menu of the song page.
Via the settings of SongRepertoire you now can hide selected functions of the menu.

Copy playlist directly on playlist page

When you are viewing a playlist you can use a new function on this page to directly create a new playlist and copy all the current content.

Copy selected music sheet to the clipboard

A new function on the song page allows you to copy the file of the currently shown music sheet directly to the clipboard.
Annotations are not copied!

New HotKey

There is a new HotKey to stop the playback and the auto-scrolling at once.

Keep auto-scrolling when selecting next song

It is now possible to start the auto-scrolling manually at one song and automatically start it when selecting the next song.
This feature needs to be activated via the settings of SongRepertoire.

Convert keywords of music sheets to ChordPro directives

When you copy and paste music sheets of a web page (typically chord files) they often contain keywords like [Chorus], [Verse] or [Bridge].
The text editor of SongRepertoire now can convert these keywords automatically to the correct ChordPro directives (e.g. {soc}/{eoc} etc.)

Other changes on playlist page

If the playlist is empty all available functions to add songs are directly shown on the playlist page.
The context menu is also available on empty playlists.
When importing an already existing playlist you can decide which one to use.
If you select a block and all its assigned songs you now can move all selected items via drag and drop to another position.

Other changes on song page

The full screen mode now shows the song title and interpret in the window title bar.
