Chord charts
#2
As I see it;

iRealPro:  Works well, although a little difficult to construct a chart from scratch.  Biggest drawback (for me) is the limitation to a single page.

Chordpro:  Never really liked the format as it is, but it would be interesting if it can be re-structured along the lines under discussion.

PlayTab:  This is new to me.  I had a quick peek at the author's site, but couldn't see any real advantages over either of the other two options, but it might be easier to implement within MSP.

Obviously, there is only an advantage in incorporating any of these formats if transposition is supported.  Without being able to transpose 'on the fly', it's a waste of effort.


If I need to write a chord chart, I use Band In A Box.  This can produce precisely the sort of chart being discussed (see attachment) and can then be exported to MSP (although I usually make a PDF of the chart first.   One advantage of using BIAB is that I can play the music as I write it and check that any substitutions, etc., which I have made, actually work.  It's also very easy to load the original file back into BIAB and transpose if required.

However, I would like to see a direct transpose feature in MSP.  At present I have many duplications, merely because of working with singers in different keys.
