Which music reader fo Genos?
« on: April 01, 2021, 01:08:45 PM »
Simple question, which is best Forescore, Musicreader+ or something else.
Iíve got loads of pdf music , lots of which are printed and getting out of hand. So I would like to copy the digital versions of them onto my iPad and/or my windows tablet to work with my Genos. No idea which to pick, any help would be welcome.

I think MobileSheets Pro is the best choice (Win). The only drawback is that the wireless connection cannot be made.

Oops, my mistake.
I should have said songbook+ or forescore or something else not Musicreader.
Senility strikes again.

Have a look at the thread below it gets a SX600 user up and running with a few examples from Mobilesheets Pro in windows it also works with Android and E-link Devices

https://www.psrtutorial.com/forum/index.php/topic,57660.msg448331.html#msg448331

My set up uses 12000 songs connected to Registrations and Playlists from individual sheets and Books using a simple CSV file for loading books, also importing of single sheets is easily done for individual songs. Not all 12000 Regs have a correct style associated with it but all have a correct setup, only missing a style, but most have a style associated in the reg.

The playlist lists all the songs in the book, so selecting a song from the playlist loads the corresponding Reg and song PDF is loaded into Mobilesheets Pro

The program IS very cheap I Think 15£ I cannot recommend it highly enough as it works great on PSX and Genos keyboards. Use a wireless MD-BT01. Wireless MIDI Adaptor but it can be connected to the to Host socket on the keyboard

I think the answer also depends on how you want to use the selected program. 

I use SongBook+ on iPad . . . . .it contains all my PDF's . . .. . . the iPad is wirelesly connected to Genos keyboard (via a wireless midi device). Songbook+ enables me to control the Genos registrations from the iPad/Songbook+ and the other way around.

In other words, when i select a PDF file in the iPad/Songbook+, the corresponding Genos registration is immediately loaded. The other way around too. . . when a Genos registration is selected manually, the corresponding PDF shows on the iPad screen.   

Thanks

I've used Unrealbook for years and think it's the best overall program for sending midi controll messages, system exclusive messages  and sorting big pdf files ie: Fakebook's. However, recently I have switched to Songbook+ for the wireless connectivity.Works very well indeed.
 It's great👍

I too have used unrealBook for a bunch of years ... I like the way it works and it has plenty of
features for many things .. MIDI (which I use for Registration recall), set lists, searches,
metadata (database/keywords), lots of useful features . . .

I use it for wireless features too ... both for my page-turning pedal, wireless MIDI to my Genos
(via mi.1connect midi device), and WiFi for networking several iPads (for several musicians), all
who are using unrealBook.  When I change to a different song (PDF), all the other pads change
wirelessly . . .
