Chord charts that transpose. Edit or write your own?

Post by karstenoddjensen » Mon Apr 14, 2014 9:31 pm

Hi. Fab app, at last an index for all my fakebooks!
I'm also very, very fond of the chord charts that transpose. Super usefull when the singer allways wants the songs in a different key.
But how to edit the transposable charts or write your own? Is the format a secret or can you reveal how it's done? Can you import charts that can be transposed from another app? Or do you have plans to create an app that can create these charts on the fly? It would make life allmost perfect for this guitarist ;o)
Thanks.

Sorry, currently there is no way for a user to add or modify chord charts that transpose.

Hey. A year later - any change?
OnSong and other apps allow uploading via dropbox files that has charts written in the format of [Am] lyrics lyrics [Bb7] lyrics lyrics , which can then be transposed.
True, the jazz standards included in iGigBook are great and I use them, but in my set I need to include also other charts (adding PDF via dropbox) and would like to transpose them as well at times...

Cheers

Hi Phil
Still love your app ;o) It was the reason I bought my iPad and the main reason I still have it!! (Almost) never go anywhere without my guitar and my iGigBook!

I've also fallen helplessly in love with the look and feel of the transposable chord sheets. It's very easy for me to read even when someones calling a tune I've never heard about and want's to play it very fast. Have used to - but for some reason the fonts and the layout of the transposable charts (from jazzstudies.us) are much easier for me.

I have a dream! That one day I'll be able to make my own charts with the same look and have these charts imported in iGigBook and still have the ability to transpose to different keys!!
From what I can figure out the transposable chord charts are in a pdf-format with something very clever done to them ...
How about either revealing the secrets or even better create (maybe a in new app??) a way to let the users "do their own"??? It would be SO awesome!!

Please ....
Karsten (otherwise still a very happy customer!)

For transposable charts that you can make your own or edit, there is another product that does this very nicely. It is not at all a replacement for iGigBook because it cannot index canned charts or show melody lines, but it is very good at what it does. The two are complementary. I have both.

I took the liberty of removing the name of the product from your post. Why? On the forum of said product they have removed any mention of iGigBook and whenever someone asks about a product that does exactly what iGigBook does they go out of their way to suggest something else. It's both comical and sad.

After reading the forum I still don't know the name of the app to write edit and transpose chord charts to carry in my Android. Since I already have igigbook it would be nice to know the other app so I can write transposable chord charts for other than just the jazz ones here and on Jazz studies.
Help please
