The BandHelper app works with your BandHelper account to share info with your bandmates, streamline your management duties and power your live show.

Load your BandHelper account with your songs, set lists, lyrics, chord charts, reference recordings, videos, notes, events and contact info and they appear on all of your bandmates' mobile devices automatically. If inspiration strikes during a rehearsal, make a quick recording in the app and that will be synced, too. With this info at everyone's fingertips, you'll spend less time remembering what you talked about at the last rehearsal and more time becoming a better band.

The BandHelper app evolved from the popular Set List Maker app and shares the same on-stage functionality. Auto-scroll lyrics, play backing tracks and click tracks through separate audio ports or inter-app audio, and configure MIDI-compatible sound and lighting equipment as you move from song to song. You can control BandHelper with MIDI or Bluetooth footswitches, and link together multiple devices for screen sharing or remote control on stage.

Scheduling gigs is a snap with BandHelper's automated email messages to ask your bandmates' availability, send updates if the details of a gig change, and send reminders before the gig. You can set up checklists to help promote or pack for a gig, and build stage plots with a drag-and-drop interface. And splitting the money after a gig is easy with BandHelper's features to track income (performance fees, merch sales, tips) and expenses (gas, food, rentals) and calculate each band member's share of the profit.

Besides its native mobile apps, BandHelper includes a web interface for efficient data entry, and an Apple Watch app for quick access on the go. You can enter your band's data from any device connected to your account, and BandHelper will sync it to all the others automatically.

Best App for solo muso ever.

I’ve been a full time pro soloist for 20 years and this app has revolutionised the efficiency in which I can perform. From auto scrolling lyrics, to choosing songs on the fly with an index, to instantly selecting one of 500 presets instantly on my chosen ‘Do it all’ VL3X. Of course there have been glitches but Arlo is constantly improving and for me, this works seamlessly and has not crashed in a year of performing approx 4 times per week on iPad and iPhone. Incredibly customisable. Absolutely brilliant. Can not imagine gigging without this now.

The Best Musician/Band App

I had been using the standalone version of this app “SetList Maker” for many years; and prior to that tested a number of apps, finally settling on what I found to be the best.
I migrated to the BandHelper app to take advantage of the wider features and multi-device synchronisation. This app has streamlined the whole repertoire management for me. I am a session musician, playing for a number of artists and bands and I manage all details in this one easy to use application.

My favourite performance app!

This app is so incredibly useful for live musicians. It's so versatile, and the fact that they take feedback from their customers, and implement positive changes to the app within the week, is a testament to how great this app is, and where it will continue to go!
