Add Field for Song Key Setting to Singer History Window

Post by DFT » Sat May 25, 2019 12:27 pm

Many singers, myself included, like to have different key/ pitch changes on different songs. I might like one song pitched -1 and another pitched +1. I also like to be able to easily view the setting in case I've made an error in entry or for some reason want to change the setting later.

I know these changes are saved with the song in singer history, but they aren't one of the options to be displayed in the main window. I can only see them if I enter a song into the rotation.

Could we please have the key/ pitch setting included as a display option in the singer history window?


Thank you.

It's already there my friend..Upper left corner just a few lines below the singer's name... you will see key with a drop down selection to choose the key selection for the song you are choosing next to that is a tempo setting drop down box also. I am assuming when you are talking the singer history window you are talking about the add singer dialog.
when you highlight the song it will show you the current key/tempo settings for said song. if its wrong just select the different setting and click add to add to your rotation list

Thanks, Hawke68 ... but while this is helpful, it is still not what I would like.

I want to be able to see all the data in one place without having to select a specific song in the Song List box of the Add Singer/ Song window.

If you right/ context click on the title bar of the Song List box a drop down menu of check boxes with options for what you want displayed per song in the Song List box appears. There are 8 options, including the obvious of 'Title,' 'Artist,' etc.

I would like to 2 more options for Key/ Pitch setting and Tempo.

The Song List is obviously just a 'report form' from the database. The data is already there or either null values or previous settings of changed pitch or tempo.

It couldn't be that difficult to add the two additional fields to the options for the window.

This comes up again.

A singer sings a song with the key change they request.

After the song is performed, they ask for an adjustment to their previous key request.

The only way I have found to do this is to again place the song in their queue and then go to the 'Details' button to open up the song and change the key setting.

Is there any other way? This is very, very awkward.

If the data was in the Singer's Song List box of the ''Add Singer/ Song' it might also offer an easy place to access the adjustment.

Being new here I'm not sure how the (probably very busy) developer responds to Feature Requests.

It would be nice if there was some interaction along the lines of 'not feasible,' 'will consider,' 'planned for future release,' etc.

Anyway, I don't want this suggestion to slip away down the list. It seems (to an uninformed, non-coder as myself!) a fairly straight-forward implementation as it simply expands existing database report structure by adding two existing fields to add to a database report using other similar fields.
