show-stopping pedal problem
#1
I was using my Firefly pedal in a concert last night. I am the pianist and the grand piano is in the middle of the theater with performers and audience surrounding the piano. The pedal is USB hardwired to a 22" Acer all-in-one computer running MobileSheetsPro (1.43). Twice during the soundcheck, tapping the pedal to advance the pages (2 page mode where 2 pages are viewed at once) caused the .pdf score to turn grey while getting stuck in a "loop" without further displaying any pages. The only way to break the loop is to press the pedal again, which then displays a clear page again, but NOT the following page that should be loaded. It seems to be a random page from somewhere else in the score.

The real disaster came during the live show *with full audience* when this happened 3 times. The 1st and 2nd time I was able to keep playing (playing notes that had nothing to do with the composition) while searching for the current page with both forward and back pedals. The 3rd time, I literally had to stop the show, find the correct page, tell the singer where he should pick up, and do my best to finish the show. This was, as you can image, an absolute nightmare.

At first, I thought I was possibly causing this by inadvertently pressing both pedals at once. During the performance, I was super careful to not do that. Yet the loop and consequent issues remained and resulted in my having to stop the show. Not good.

I am, shall we say, rather desperate here. It is Saturday morning here in Amsterdam as I write this. My following show is Sunday evening and I need to find a solution before this happens again.

Please help - all suggestions are welcome and greatly appreciated!
