Ipad Pro & Forscore for Professional Musicians Part 2



hey there everybody John start again I'm LJ music thanks for the nice comments on the last video I did about the iPad pro this is a follow up after using it for the past six months use your iPad pro right here bring a little closer for you as you can see nice full sheet of music it works great I'm very happy with it a couple of questions I've had number one let's see how do I like it number one I love it absolutely love it it's a game changer go to the index here's all my scores right here I can't see that there you go scores are here this is all my stuff summer sheets summer some are actual song books so here's a nice big songbook right here there's my Beatles book Beatles you just complete vol 1 now this book has about 500 pages and here's the index few people who don't look for score what you could do is you can set up bookmarks on the songs you want so if we're going to drive my car I go there good to go it takes you also to your next book of Mark which can be very handy then a lot of source which you could also do is set up what's called pots bus by setting up a hotspot you go to here it's called a link down this page here you said where you wanted to see the triggers the blue is the trigger and the orange of the red I'm kind of colorblind so don't mind me is where you want to end up so we want to end up here okay then you get seep so now you know the blue spot right here on the music hope you all to see that hit it there you are back turn the page go back if you're so much longer and you have to go back again you can set up another spot as well but this song does it mean that all right also cool thing if you had this little guy right here the Apple pencil you can go here and you can do annotate different wide shapes you want and say you want to write something here I just said we want to repeat four times and you can write right on the score they're done you're good to go at the pencil at four score is incredible once again another game changer so what you're here in your pot spots when you have a long song let's see like when I get the play that flirty in a lot every child's favorite let it go you could use something like this page flip the Firefly turn it on syncs up cool thing too about page flip I found out if you're in a dark place you can hit the light on now you get two little lights there pretty cool huh hit the pedal here so usually when I'm playing what I do is I'll use a combination of the pedals and the hot spots so I'll play the song and playing song playing the song going along then all of a sudden we got to go back then I'll hit that go there play along again go to the coda and you're done that's it so pretty cool for your working musicians look there's nothing else you're gonna carry books to a gig look like a schmuck carrying a big stack no this is easy you could also set up playlists like here I did a wedding over Disney and I set up a bunch of stuff this is a songbook here's some bookmarks go back to your set list here's another book movie fake book and I bought all these and what I did shredded the end of the book and I put it into a high speed copier we have over my church double-sided PDFs email them to yourself or Dropbox some import them into Foursquare you're good to go the hard work pretty hard work but the big work is setting up the actual book with what you want like haven't done this so right now you want pajamas so you want to make it movies tag me tag certain songs labels and then you can do searches when you need something you go here and you could do a search for whatever safer something oh the one thing is when you're hooked up here with Bluetooth and your pedals on sometimes the keyboard will not come up which can be annoying so if that happens just shut this off okay and then you're usually good to go but it can be annoying so we'll try that again see if it comes up see there's the keyboard so remember that of course I found that out the hard way on the gate wondering why the keyboard wouldn't pop up but sometimes the Bluetooth but what if your keyboard popping up so let's say you want to do you know church music got that you've got tags Church labels genres so they need those songs at a tag church and it'll come up to your list here didn't you just go right in to whatever is you want Oh another cool thing to one thing leads to another sorry I'm not very scripted see this song here steal the white space also very cool of course before you go here you go to a control called crop automatically boom puts it up hit crop and now your whitespace is minimized you have to do it for each page though maybe you don't I don't know the works for me now your whitespace is minimized there you go so it's pretty cool other things about Foursquare what we see said let's we talked about tagging your music tagged your music that's the big one I'll also here pencil didn't want to do the page turn take the pencil right down here makes your life a lot easier so the combination for us musicians Apple pencil iPad pro Firefly this is your business you need the tools the tools and the tools just like you got a carpenter's got a hammer and a saw this is what we need within I predict within four or five years every musician will have one because there's really there's no comparison between this and paper the only drag is when they get cheaper you have to side by side and sync them up that'd be very cool but until that what can you do thank you guys very much for listening and we'll see you again soon
