Midisoft Stage Control  & Play Sheet Manager     

makes You! the fastest 'Next Song Ready' musician on stage.
Your group members will thank you using Midisoft Stage Control.
You are the one who makes it possible.
Get rid of the damn waiting for Next Song Count In.
Stage Control
The goal is to speed up live performance on stage.
No pause between songs.
No stress between songs.
Fully performance concentration.
And last but not least, No risk but more fun!

Midisoft Stage Control is a hardware device which supports a Program and/or Bank change chain with up to 40 songs.
If your band finish to play the 1st song and goes to play the next song, all you have to do is, pressing the Next Song Button and up to 4 Keyboards will change it's Program and/or Bank to the correct settings you programmed before from your play sheet.

The display shows the Song Name, as well as the 4 Program numbers

I'm using it now successfully since a couple of time.
And I really never ever wont miss it again.
This is what makes a gig quiet relax and makes me smile song by song.

What is easier than just pressing a button to go to the next song settings?

Try it and you'll love it!

Our drummer and guitarist now also using Midisoft Stage Control and they are happy with it, until our singer became the idea to use one, to control our Midisoft Stage Controls. We tried it and it works. From now on our band leader is the boss again and he controls us all. We don't need to push any button any more.
We now are musicians and no technicians.
It's that easy.

Uups' I forgot to mention, there is a MIDI Analyzer implemented too.
Hold the cursor down key while start up to activate the MIDI Analyzer.
The MIDI Analyzer displays all incoming channel, and system messages,
note number, velocity, controller, channel, pitch, aftertouch ...
Who knows, where for this little feature might be helpful one day.

Midisoft Play Sheet Manager

PlaySheetManager

The Play Sheet Manager makes it easy to handle all Midisoft Stage Control entries in one go.
Of course you can do all the song settings inside the hardware, but it might help saving time to manage all your  settings for the next live gig with the Play Sheet Manager.

Song Names can be inserted by drag & drop from other application e.g. Microsoft Word.
Programs, Bank MSB, Bank LSB and MIDI channels can be organized easily.
Just select a Song Line and type the desired Song Name, Program, and/or Bank select number into the corresponding column field on top. That's it!
A Song position can easily be changed by drag & drop the Song from one position line to another.

If you finished the Play Sheet for your next live gig, then send it with a simple mouse click on the menu entry Bulk Dump Send, to your Midisoft Stage Control hardware. It will be stored there in the Non Volatile EEPROM Memory, where it's really save and protected from data lost.

You also can get back your Play Sheet from the hardware into the Play Sheet Manager by a simple mouse click onto the menu entry Bulk Dump Request.

Of course you can save Play Sheets to your computer hard disk and load them back at any time.

It's that easy to be the fastest 'Next Song Ready' musician in the band and your group members will thank you using Midisoft Stage Control because you are the one who makes it possible to get rid of  the damn waiting for the next song count in.
