Screen Shots

Chord Maestro provides an easy to use interface that can be learned quickly. Check out the screen shots to get an idea of what the application looks like.

Chord Queue Files

Chord Queue files are basically just PDF files with a combination of anchor points and timed navigation events. Just pull in a chord chart (in PDF format) and then you can create navigation anchor points (i.e. the green bar in picture below) to break your chord chart into multiple sections. Once the navigation anchors have been established, you can use the Chord Queue details viewer to specify simple or complex navigation sequences that jump between the various anchor points.

 

Set Lists

Set list files allow you to order a series of Chord Queue files for the purpose of playback during a live setting. The set list files basically just reference chord queue files defined in your chord queue library projects. Once a set list is created, the chord charts can be presented in full screen mode for use on a confidence screen or computer monitor.

 

Planning Center Integration

If your organization uses Planning Center Online, Chord Maestro provides direct access to chord charts you have created online. Simply log into planning center inside of Chord Maestro and then import songs directly from Planning Center into Chord Maestro. If you end up changing a chord chart arrangement online, you just have to do a refresh from Chord Maestro to re-sync any previously imported chord charts

 

MIDI Device Synchronization

If you use a MIDI device such as a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), drum machine, or keyboard during your live performances, you'll be excited to know that Chord Maestro can be synchronized with any MIDI device that can send MIDI Time Code (MTC). MIDI Time Code is a messaging protocol that allows several MIDI devices to stay synchronized during the playback of a song. Chord Maestro can receive these MIDI Time Code messages and use them to ensure that the right chords are on the screen at each point during a song. Just pick your synchronization source (e.g. DAW, drum machine) and then record chord chart navigation events as the song plays back (i.e. moving between anchor points). Once the events are recorded, the navigation can be played back in sync with the song EVEN IF YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE TEMPO! This means you don't need an extra person to manually step through the chord chart during live performances. Chord Maestro does it automatically so that you are always seeing the right chords no matter where you are in a particular song.
