Thread: Digital Music Tools & Software

  1. #21
    I use MobileSheets Pro to store/display/coordinate my music (there's a Free version that has a limit to how many songs you can upload, but nice for trying it out), and right now I'm on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 10.5" which comes with a pen. I'm able to notate the sheet music fairly easily using the pen which is a plus, and I can take other notes on the tablet as well. I'm completely paper-free right now which is awesome.

    I wear glasses but have very good eyesight with them on, so the size is not an issue, but it may be a problem for some. I sit the tablet on a regular music stand but if someone had to bring the tablet closer to see the music due to the smaller size, I'd considering purchasing a tripod which would eliminate the bulky stand and would allow for the tablet to be brought closer without any awkwardness.

    My pedal is a Donner Wireless Page Turner which was about half the price of some of the competitors, and it works perfectly.

    Update - Adopting digital

    Okay folks. I finally pulled the trigger and purchased a device for this purpose. I wanted/needed a new computer too, so I ended up getting a 13.3 inch 2-1 laptop/tablet hybrid (HP Spectre 360). I wish that I did not have the keyboard exposed when I am working with the screen in its tablet formation. But we will see if it is all that terrible as I put it to some actual use. If I have my act together, I plan on starting to use it as a sheet music alternative at Wednesday's practice. In the mean time, I need to pick some sheet music reader apps to try, and try to get PDF versions of the stuff we are playing currently.

    Forscore is a popular app, but it is only available via Apple, so that is out. I think that I am going to try Mobile Sheets and Music Reader for starters. I will keep reporting back, so we will see where this all ends up.
