Hi all.
Here's a little something I'm working on. It's designed for use on Touch Screen Tablet PC's. so this won't look right if you run it on a desktop or a laptop display. The view needs to be a portrait type view, not landscape at this moment in time.

Beta Setup.exe Download
11.4MB Download.
Windows XP,Vista, 7 and 8 compatible.

Image 1.
The list of songs stored in the program is displayed.
To select a song, touch it.
To load it, touch View Selected.


Image 2.
The Song Name is Displayed.
P1 to P12 are the pages in the song. A single song can contain a maximum of 12 pages.
The “Song List” button a the bottom of the screen calls up the song list in Image 1.
Previous Song loads the last song.
<<Page>> goes to the next page in the song.
“Next Song” goes to the next song on your list.


Image 3
When you are creating a new song, if you right click on the empty window, the options to add sheet music from a file or your scanner are displayed.
Use the P1 to P12 and the blank windows to add sheet music to your song.


Image 4
This is where you create songs and give them titles and categories.
“Add New” creates a blank song for you to add new sheet music.
The Text Window for lyrics operates the same as any Word Processing program.




This is a beta release of the full program, it's not a demo and it does not expire.

Regards

Nice. But if you want to make the program really useful,
do what I did with my program.
use midi patch data from the Kronos (or any midi keyboard) to automatically select the file you want to display. And use the value fader to select next page/previous page (or use a usb footswitch). There should be little or no need to touch the screen.

Congratulations, that looks really good and it's certainly very handy to be able to change the songs from the KRONOS.

I have already done that too in a very different way, although that function is not available to the end users yet as I have a decision to make. Do I complete my own script for working with midi, or do I use the tools already available for this.

Bome Software have a OEM you can download to run midi to keystroke commands I've already written. Weather or not I buy a OEM version of this so I can distribute it with my software or I write my own from scratch depends greatly on if people start using this or not.

If they don't, it's doesn't really matter. I'm writing this program for myself and my close friends. We all have some specific needs and simplicity we can't find in other programs. They want to be able to play backing tracks from the program too with dead simple easy.

So... we will see where this goes. I'm focused on finished it this time.

The next release will play backing tracks, and have a few other changes.
Regards
Sharp.

Found a free solution for converting midi data into keystrokes.
http://tcone.bplaced.com/midi-hotkeys.html

So the next release in a few days will have automation to work with the KRONOS, OASYS and Pa3X, plus the ability to play backing tracks.

Regards
Sharp.

Here's a screen shot of the updated GUI.


Many HOT Key functions have been added.
Add New Song CTRL+N
Delete Song CTRL+D

Display Lyrics CTRL+W

Play Backing Track CTRL+P
Stop Backing Tack CTRL+O

Next Song CTRL+>
Previous Song CTRL+<

Show Sheet Music CTRL+M
Show Song List CTRL+S

Jump to Page 1 CTRL+1
Jump to Page 2 CTRL+2
Jump to Page 3 CTRL+3
Jump to Page 4 CTRL+4
Jump to Page 5 CTRL+5
Jump to Page 6 CTRL+6
Jump to Page 7 CTRL+7
Jump to Page 8 CTRL+8
Jump to Page 9 CTRL+9
Jump to Page 10 CTRL+E
Jump to Page 11 CTRL+T

Many bug fixes and enhancements.

The EXE in my first post has been replaced with the current version. This beta demo is limited to storing 10 songs.

I have to write a new script for controlling the program remotely again because of all the new Hot Key functions that were added. So the next release will be the last beta.

Regards
Sharp.
