Lyric Video Software
I played out in pubs clubs and hotel lounges for years.
Nowadays I’m mostly found in Care Facilities and Community Halls.
I used to have ring binders full of fake sheets. Horrible things! Drunken dancers were almost guaranteed to knock them down. The rings popped open and away went the hand written lyrics. Then we got Chordie and Ultimate Guitar and could download and print lyric sheets.
I now have piles of Display Books full of lyrics. They’re more or less geared towards playing in 5 or 6 places - if I sing a lot of Folk in a home today, I’ll do less Folk and more Gospel next time. Next visit is more Oldies and Rock.
Just bought a Tablet computer. Busy loading all my music stuff now my microSD card has arrived.
Intending to replace all my Display Books with playlists in the tablet. Also interested in compiling associated lists of backing tracks.
I normally play unplugged, my lungs are working ok even if the rest of me is crocked but in the event of a plugged in booking I would like to have lyric videos making up my computer play lists.
Can anyone recommend software for creating these type of files and also an Android app for compiling playlists for them. Seems that avi and mp4 are the favoured file formats for Android. I used Van Basco for years on my laptop but it doesn’t work on Android. I can of course continue with the laptop but the tablet is a lot smaller and a lot lighter and can sit on a music stand. It can also be mute when I just want fakebook lists.
