Add my vote for ShowPlay! I’ve used it for several years. I have no idea where my huge lyrics book is now, and don’t care. ShowPlay let’s me concentrate on the gig, not the book. :)
Nice article, Bill. :)

You know, it’s partly because of you that I found ShowPlay. I stumbled upon your site and you mentioned it. I’m only sorry I didn’t find it sooner, before I wasted three reams of paper and several three-ring binders. What a program!
We have used Showplay for about a year. Loved it for a while. Now midis, after our mixing, are reverting back to original mix and key. We pull up a song for a gig and suddenly it is totally wrong. Showplay has not been much help. Anyone else have this problem? If so, any help suggestions?

I like most started with a milk crate full of books but since ShowPlay the books are in file 13, what I do now is work on putting the chords with the lyrics its time consuming but in the end it will be worth it. If other ShowPlay users have already chorded lyrics it would be nice to be able to share each others work. Thanks again ShowPlay

Hi, just ordered the $15 demo…. was wondering if the words are highlighted as they are sung ? Cheers Ken

What you’re describing is the Karaoke feature of ShowPlay. You can have the lyrics displayed that way or you can have them simply scroll along as the accompanying audio file plays in the background, OR - and this is my chosen option - You can embed timing marks so that the lyrics sync exactly to that spot in the audio file. Either way, it’s an invaluable program and worth every cent.

Wow just what I have been looking for. I play guitar and Have a vocalist live pro and use MIDI on a lap top in my solo act . But have two Large song books with chords and lyrics. When I get a request I have to fumble through hundreds of songs to find it! Would I have to type the chords and lyrics or can I copy/ paste them from my notepad file? Also is there a video that shows a live performer or someone using the Showplay set up?
