Pro tip: Before buying Set List Maker, check out its big brother, BandHelper.
Set List Maker is a powerful organizational tool for musicians. With thousands of people around the world using the app in creative ways, the app is packed with features to manage your repertoire, control your on-stage electronics and share with your bandmates.
MORE THAN A DIGITAL SONGBOOK
Set List Maker can store your lyrics and chord charts, but it can also keep track of your rehearsal notes and serves as an archive of all your set lists. You can include multiple reference recordings for each song, slow down or pitch-shift recordings while practicing,* transpose chords with one touch, and make a quick recording if inspiration strikes.* Then design your own screen layouts to show the most important information in each setting you play in.
YOUR COMMAND CENTER ON STAGE
Set List Maker can display your lyrics with simple auto-scrolling or custom automation tracks,* play backing tracks and click tracks through separate audio ports or inter-app audio,* play videos,* and configure MIDI-compatible sound and lighting equipment as you move from song to song.* You can control Set List Maker with MIDI* or Bluetooth footswitches, and link together multiple devices for screen sharing or remote control on stage.*
KEEP YOUR BANDMATES IN THE LOOP
Set List Maker can can export databases and import them onto your bandmates' mobile devices so everyone has access to the latest songs, set lists, and details of upcoming shows. You can also email set lists in PDF or HTML format, or print good old paper set lists to keep it simple on stage.
Some advanced features (*) require an in-app purchase. For details, please visit the Set List Maker website, which also contains tutorials and demo videos to help with your purchase decision.

Ratings and Reviews
I recently bought my iPad mostly to do music related things. At the top of the list was scores and set list management. I was a bit disappointed with my first search through what was available and almost opted for a simple database just to keep track of songs and sets. But this application is very flexible and works well in the live environment.
I initially had some difficulties in adapting it to my environment. But the custom fields are great and allowed me the flexibility I needed. Smart lists, showing songs of different types, are very useful. I'd like to see filtering on smart lists so that just those items show up, as well as different heading options. But generally it does what it sets out to do - lets me see all the band's songs on stage and shuffle the list into a different order if needed.
Support is good. I got a quick response to my two emails.
I have not long downloaded this app but early in I can see it is going to be very good. The only thing I can't get it to do for me at the moment is scroll the lyrics? I have turned auto scroll on but nothing. Anybody?

Downloaded on the recommendation of our singer who uses this whereas I use OnSong and we should be able to link devices on stage if we run the same app. Won’t import OnSong files (combined or individual), won’t import ChordPro files (combined or individual) and won’t import text files. So that’s £13 wasted. Will be deleting, requesting a refund from Apple and going back to OnSong.
