LivePrompter is a teleprompter for live musicians - it runs on Windows. And now there is also a new and shiny Android version!
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: the established version of LivePrompter is a Windows app - optimized to be used on touch tablets (nice large type and friendly buttons), but it will NOT run on iOS or Macs - please don't ask me how to install it on your iPad...
But there is hope: hot off the presses, here is LivePrompter mobile for Android. And maybe, we'll also have a version for iOS some time in the future...
LivePrompter only has two screens - makes life simple!
This window, normally shown full-screen, 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.
At the bottom, there is a row of big buttons to operate LivePrompter via mouse or touch screen: play/pause, reset to beginning, scroll up/down, next/previous song, exit.
Below this, the footer bar displays the next song in the list.
