peter Well you could leave a bit space before the song starts and then use the timed lyrics feature to count you in.
Hi Peter, yes thats a work around that creates a lot of work for users, but i think you miss the point of the request, a simple visual 3 2 1 in centre of screen to indicate the actual exact start point would be very useful i know you have a delay start feature which i actually use on all my songs which gives me time to move my arm to a playing position on my guitar, but an actual visual feedback is much more reasureing when starting instantly.
It does not have to be related to the tempo of the song it just needs to guide us to when the start is about to occur, this hopefully would be easier to implement.
All my songs are instant start some need me to immediately play my guitar and others dont i might need to start singing immediately so a visual 3 2 1 does no harm to be there, so perhaps the delay start also presents you with this visual count.
So imagine this on stage, as you are in that moment of hitting the start on your remote and you are slightly distracted looking for that start switch on the remote as you hit the start you then have that fraction of time to gather your concentration to the on screen count, get your mind on the guitar and starting lyrics as you are comfourtably quided to the actual start , this all happens in a couple of seconds, while the audience is none the wiser how you actually achieved this seamless start.
The delayed start definitely helps but a visual quide would really help just as much, the two would comliment each other and make life even easier, without comlicating the feature, a simple time delay start setting just slows the 3 2 1 on screan, i find once you get use to this delay it works really well on stage.
