SETLIST CREATOR
(Windows only)

Version 1.7.1 now out

SetList is a simple program to make it easier to produce lists of songs for your band's gigs. You maintain a list of available songs (or 'pad'), and add them to your setlist by either double-clicking them or hitting the ADD TO LIST button. Info about each song can be stored (eg the length) and you choose which of these attributes are shown in the setlist. Items in the setlist can be dragged to their desired position, and new sets can be created or deleted. The duration of each set if you choose to display it is continually updated.

Furthermore, you can automatically create a list in the Auto-create window. Here you say how many sets you need and what length, and define any conditions (eg 'Smoke on the Water' must come at the end of the first set). Then one click comes up with a random list, obeying all the rules you have specified.

When you are happy with the set list it can be easily printed in various formats, or copied to the clipboard for pasting into a word processor or spreadsheet.

  • Designed by a musician for busy musicians everywhere!
  • Import existing song list as a text file
  • Store details for each song eg length, key and style
  • Range of printing options
  • Tap spacebar to open PDF of song

New for Version 1.7.1

NB 1.7.1 fixes bug in 1.7.0 when opening text files

Song Edit Window
There are several new fields: one for who sings the song, and one for extra comments, both of which can be displayed in the set list by using %V (think vocalist) and %C respectively in the Format window.
Another field lets you enter the location of a PDF chart, if you have one, for this song. Then, when selected in the Set List window, hitting the spacebar opens the pdf file. Great for gig/laptop situations. There is a sample pdf file included which contains charts for the first four songs in the default 'jazztunes.slp' pad.
If you are likely to add a few more songs with similar data, check the 'Use as template' box.

Doubleclicking the song title in the Set List window lets you edit the text as you wish. If you click on the title of a set, you can also specify a start time. Please enter as eg 7.20 or 20.00 (you can add 'pm' in the Format window). Use %W (think When) to display.

Now songs in the pad are shown in red if they have been placed in the set list.

Saving and loading
Now the list of styles is saved along with a Pad file. A Gig file saves just the set lengths, conditions, and setlist, not the pad as well. Now you will be asked if you want to save edited Pads or Gigs.

Higher resolution icons.

More readable screen font used for the lists.

NB Please read the added paragraph in the Licence agreement concerning additional installations.
