Using Existing search for home use is usable and fine,
Using it on stage I feel like I’m riding on a drunk donkey instead of a race horse😂, why?
Well when I’m in my gigs PLAYLIST and someone requests a song I know I have but I just have to get to it quickly , using search is a real hard task, I have worked out I have 9 steps to go through to find my song set it up as next and return to my Playlist, this is way to slow to use on stage, yes there is a bug that could reduce 1 step if it was fixed , and that’s the step where I have to manually drop down the no 1 search result as it’s hidden behind the search box, this is still not good enough even if this was fixed I still have way too many steps to find and get my next song.
Peter here is a thought, when I’m playing a song in my playlist I would want to just hit one button to bring up my search box and the keyboard ready to enter the name , once the results are there I just select the appropriate next selection and one more hit to exit back to the playlist, so basically a 4 step process, at the moment it is a 9 step process that is non logical , if you manage to fix the bug of the first result showing on top of list that still makes it an 8 step process.
My suggestion is if you are playing a song in your playlist the SONG selection button becomes a search activation button , if you press it , it means you need a search for a new song and it automatically brings up song mode and the search keyboard ready to just type in your search criteria, once you get a result you just select the next song and hit playlist again to return to the playlist, this song gets inserted as the next song but once it is finished the song that gets selected next is the one that was originally below the last playlist song and not the one that was in SONG mode below the inserted song, meaning it’s purely an inserted song using search it is not a change to SONG mode.
At the moment if you use search it assumes you want to stay in song mode which is a wrong assumption, I use playlist and I want to stay in playlist I just need to search and insert a song , that’s it, with as few steps as possible.
Does this sort of make sense?
I am trying to get a very quick method of using search so that it’s easy for on stage use.
At the moment the search is not as easy and fast as it should be.
Just to add something so you understand what I am trying to explain,
If you are in playlist and in stop mode then select SONG then you can either choose any song in that mode or select search, but if you are in playlist and playing a song if you select SONG now it assumes you are wanting to find a next song so the search field is active and the keyboard is presented to you then all you do is type in you search criteria select the new song and touch playlist again to get back to continue ,
The idea is that you keep the show going but you can easily insert a song from all the song library without having too much button pushing.
When you are in stop mode the logic of SONG button goes back to normal.
Can anyone think of a better search option , as at the moment it is not good when using playlists as your main screen on stage.
