Description

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.

Was a Great App. Update changed that.

I loved the app until the May 2019 update. They took the music and notes icons away from the left side of the screen as well as the slide bar controller for the music. Now, you can only play the song without controls. The icon was moved to the right side of the page. If you want to control the music you must be in one of your set lists. That's BS. If I want to play any of my songs, I shouldn't have to have them in a setlist. The old version let me play and control music from any directory of songs.
Update:
Got the smart list setup. Works like the original list did and you can pick different options. It just involves another step. I still liked it the old way better, but this is workable. Hence, rating up to 4 stars.

If you want to perform without a set list, you can use a smart list, which gives access to the same performance-oriented layouts and functionality: https://www.arlomedia.com/apps/setlistmaker/tutorials/building_smart_lists.html

The best app of its kind available

I used setlists for a long time but it hasn’t been updated in years and gets buggier over time and as OS changes occur so I’ve been searching for an alternative. I tried so many others and none did everything I wanted, or just felt as good as setlists did in its heyday. Having used BandHelper in the past I decided to give this one a go (I rarely need lyrics apps unless it’s a last minute gig or I suddenly have to learn a lot of new songs, otherwise I prefer the more professional approach of knowing the tunes and not having an iPad on stage). This app does everything I need an more and does it elegantly. It just feels great and works. I just input over 100 songs using the built in lyric search and it went smoothly and quickly. Finally, I think I can stop looking for “something better.”

To the developer: please a million times, please, never keep this app alive forever! I’m so dependent on it now and I hope I can keep using it for the rest of my life!

Great app with extremely good and responsive support

I lead worship using an acoustic guitar or piano and utilize this app in either case, which allows me to keep my hands free to play. This app has many great features; almost too many to list in this review. But even for the basic use of displaying a set list made up of music scores or chord charts entered as PDF or Word documents and being able to turn pages hands free (I connect to my iPad with a dual foot switch via Bluetooth) or move from song to song with a single swipe on an iOS device, this app is worth it. The best part is that the developer will respond to your questions and in my experience, in a very timely fashion. Highly recommended! As suggested above, I am using it on my iPad.
