Feature request
#1
Hi Mike,

Any chance of a simple record tool at some point?

Thanks

Just curious - what exactly you want to record and why it should be part of MobileSheets? Your performance of song you have in library, rehersal of your band for that song?

I'm asking because there are a lot of other apps that can do this...

Tablet: Surface Pro 4, 
Other: Strich BT-FP2, USB-MIDI connection to Kurzweil Forte 7

I use mobilesheets quite a lot for teaching. To be able to play live rehearsal piano, make a rehearsal and share it via email with my students all in app would be a perfect workflow for me.

I think I'm with NeoCZ on this. There must be dozens of recording apps for Android - use one of thise and keep MSP for its intended purpose.

Until I discovered MobileSheets Pro, I used forScore on my iPad, which has a built record function. I record my groups rehearsals, one song as a time as we get to them, which worked perfectly for me. I want that built in, not have to switch to another app, then have to go back to MSP to play along, then back to the other app.

I respectfully disagree. I think MS should avoid this:

Agreed! 

I have long argued against feature creep, both here and on other forums.  I have seen too many good softwares ruined by the addition of unnecessary 'features'.  Fortunately, Mike has managed to gradually increase the functionality of MSP without overly increasing the complexity of use, but feature creep is something that should always be borne in mind.

I record rehearsals sometimes.  I use a separate app and just set it off at the start and then record the whole session - with MP3 compression and recording to an external SD card, there is no practical time constraint - why would I need to do this from within a music display app?

While I agree with you all about the feature creep and I'm very cognizant of that, when there are requests for features that are pretty isolated in nature (meaning they won't negatively impact existing capabilities in the app), I usually implement those requests. Adding a simple button to start recording audio, and then generate a file on disk containing that audio seems like a pretty isolated feature to me.  I think I should be able to add that without negatively impacting the current UI or features, and I think it's something that would be useful to a number of users, as I have gotten requests for that in the past as well. For that reason, I do want to implement this feature when time allows. I really do appreciate all of your feedback when it comes to the feature creep though, as I want to keep that under control.

Thanks,
Mike

I agree with that.

Surely there are apps too that can be started to record from the notification bar (what's the name of that what you get swiping down from the top?). That's quasi in-app.

But to use other apps for something like that I'd like to repeat another request I haven't seen in Mike todo list so far. I'd like the option to force MSP to stay in memory so you can 
switch easily to another app (like a recording app, YouTube, or whatever) without having a reload of the database (which is big in my case and takes it time to load).

I'm not really sure how to control that BRX. That's really up to the OS whether it keeps MobileSheetsPro in memory or not. On every device I've used, it does keep MobileSheetsPro in memory when switching to other apps. The only reason it wouldn't do that is if you changed settings on the tablet (typically under the developer options in the tablet settings) or if your device has limited memory so the OS is reclaiming memory by closing background applications.
