TJJazz I agree, it is not simple to create a new playlist using old playlists arranged song segments, the software always makes you start from scratch using the whole SONG folder which might have thousands of songs when you actually might have 300 songs you perform the rest might be background music song choices which get in the way of easily creating your performace playlist.I know you can simply duplicate a playlist and then masage it but you cant just jump to another playlist and grab songs as needed, as they might not have been in the innitial playlist so now you have to chase for them in the huge song folder , this is slow.
For that reason i did suggest to Peter to have the same editing capability ln playlists as in SONG mode so we can choose songs in any playlist and copy them to another playlist so to avoid searching for them in a huge SONG folder.
The benefits of manipulating songs between playlists would be great as you are only dealing with already arranged songs, and only songs relative to your performances , definite time saver even if you are DJ and have 10,000 songs in SONG mode you should be able to use various old playlists to faster create new playlists relavant for the new gig yet you have a huge arsenal of songs to choose from in SONG if you get an unusual request.
ST3 at the moment is fantastic if you just use it for one purpose and you set it up to do the one job, i find if you need it to do a different job as well at the same time it is easier to buy another device and create the environment to do that second job.
Last nights example i was a one man band and a DJ i created a playlist on my ipad for my nomal performance and for the DJ i used my iphone 11 max with all the DJ songs on that.
This was easier to control and setup than trying to do both jobs on one device, for the reason above no quick way to use existing playlists to create new playlist.
I know it all depends how you use your playlists, i like my playlist to have my whole evenings songs requirement in one list where i can easily foot control step through it as i perform, then i have a playlist for my background music which i use when im of stage, this is simple, every gig is slightly different so i need the ease to manipulate and create a new playlist for every gig this is where the software is a bit more awkward to use it lacks ease of use, it can be done but its slow.
So to sum it up i agree with you and hope Peter will one day make it eaven easier for us, well done Peter and thank you so much for a very usefull tool i had a great night last night thanks to ST3.
As i finished writing this Peter replied with good news , Peter u are a Machine thanks again.
