matching tune from Music Library to a score in Igigbook

Post by alphabrackets » Tue Jul 09, 2019 12:25 am

Here is what I am trying to do: I have PDF books (that I created) containing tunes that I want to be able to use to play along with tracks in my music library. This could be done if I could link a page of the PDF book to a sound file but the option to do this yields "Music Library Search No Matching Tracks Found". I would like to just be able to search a playlist from my library and select the one to be played played when the page is displayed. Doesn't look like this is possible, or is it?

Doesn't work. As I said, I get "Music Library Search / No Matching Tracks Found". Going from your link, there is no list of tracks to select from.

The audio tracks I am looking for are in my iOS music library. I even named the playlist to be same as my Set List. Basically in the iGigbook app, I am choosing a page from a PDF book ( un-indexed, it is just a file I created from scanning a music book. Each book probably has about 12 songs) Various songs are entries in a Set List. I select a song, then I click the "play" arrow that your web page shows and I get the "not found" message.

Another way of putting it, none of the items in my Set List are Song names. They appear as "Page 3 of name-of-file.pdf" or like that. They will not be found in "Song Search" Now if when you open an item from "My Scores", you were given an editable attribute ( on each page) that would be used to search the Music Library, then it would work. I have created Indexes for other fake books but unfortunately the process is cumbersome.

Ok, I think I found how to do this. In the Set Manager, if I renamed the track from "page3 of ....." to the "Title" of the Audio track, then voila, it appears. Though when presenting the list of playback candidates, I wish it would include the "Album" attribute in addition to "Artist" and "Title". For instance, if you have your entire Jamey Aebersold collection in your music library, there are many tunes that appear in more than one volume. Knowing which volume each track is in would be helpful, and having the "Album" attribute would achieve this.

The How To posted explains that you need to modify the name of the set list item so that it can facilitate a match, either an exact match to the name of the track or a partial match as shown in the How To.

This feature assumes you're going to spend time creating a strategy for what tune(s) you want available when a particular chart is viewed. You control that through naming the set list item and/or the names of the items in your music library.
