LivePrompter is a teleprompter for live musicians - it is available for Android, iOS, Windows and macOS
What LivePrompter is NOT
There are a number of lyrics/chord display apps out there that offer tons of features. Unfortunately, I've found most of them a bit unwieldy for live use, so LivePrompter was created as a super-stripped-down tool that works very well in a live setting. But in the course of this, I had to make some decisions on what do leave out.
Therefore here are some things that LivePrompter is NOT:
- A song database with sophisticated search and management features
- A guitar chord finder
- A sheet music viewer
- A Karaoke app
- An all-singing, all-dancing, do-everything-for-everyone music application
LivePrompter does one thing only, but that it does pretty well…
Also: LivePrompter does not contain any editing capabilities - you will need to create and edit your song files with any text editor (the files are basic .txt files) on your PC or Mac. For mobile devices, you'll then synchronize your content to your device via Dropbox.
LivePrompter has two main screens - makes life simple!
This screen displays all songs in the current view (all songs, setlist or book); tap a song to go to the Song screen. The "hamburger menu" on the left lets you select views and go to the settings and Dropbox sync screens. The title bar displays the name of the currently loaded setlist or book (or "All Songs")
Tap the "search" icon on the top right and get to a screen where you can search for songs by typing in a few letters. LivePrompter will search the title and artist tags of your songs for these letters and display all songs that fit.
This window displays your lyrics and chords, scrolling in time with your song.
The title bar displays the currently loaded song. It changes its color to signal the current state of LivePrompter (ready to scroll, running, paused, finished), so you can see at a glance what's going on. Also, it has a simple metronome that can display the tempo of the current song. With the "gear" icon on the right, you can temporarily transpose the current song or set a capo position.
At the bottom, there is a row of buttons to operate LivePrompter: play/pause, reset to beginning, scroll up/down, next/previous song. Below this, the footer bar displays the next song in the list.
The "exit" button at the top left will take you back to the Home screen.
