Hi Guy`s

Is it possible to display Lyrics & Notation ( non MIDI file ) on either the E-80 or the Pa800 ?

I know that both can import your own lyrics via .txt file , but what about notation ?

Is there a software program ( for Mac`s ) that will allow me to import notation with the lyrics , so I can make my own "music finder ~ song book".

I know they all come with a music rack !!

But it would be so convenient to have all my favorite songs right on the display.

Well , many thanks ( again ) for all your help !! ( Still looking )

Take care

Gary 

Hi,
The PA series will only display lyrics and chords embedded in a MIDI/MP3 file, or if they are just a basic ASCII text file. They are not capable of displaying notation in either case. It is even still that way on the PA2X... Its why I bought the Music Pad Pro!! Excellent bit of kit!!!

If you must read charts while you play this is the best way to go.....

Hi Guy`s

Thank you for your help.

Hey Donny, that is a neat gadget albeit way to pricey , I guess I`ll stick to sheet music.

That is , well you know !!

My E 80 displays Lyrics with chords or the score and you can switch back and forth with one button push.

Yes Donny, the MPP is a great tool for those songs that you just can't remember because they are requested so infrequently, or for those songs that you feel like playing sometimes but couldn't be bothered learning.It is a bit pricey but a one off purchase, with years of use.
And to Bebop, if I remember correctly the E50 and E60 can also read notation/lyrics/chords.Its a pity other makers couldn't adopt a few of Rolands' very handy features.

Hi Guy`s & BEBOP,

I know that the E-80 can display both Lyrics and Notation , from a midi file.

What I was asking is if there is a way to create my own music finder or song book. ( without the use of midi files )

Something like the importing of lyrics but the ability to import notation as well.

Anyway , thanks again for all your help !!

Take care,
Gary 

Like Miden said, you can create a songbook of text lyrics with registrations, but not notation.

The E80 will display .BMP files (a type of graphic file) linked to registrations. You can scan your charts, save as .BMP and import directly to the E80.

The E80 manual is available at roland-arranger.com if you need to get more info on how this is done...

The G70 does not have this capability (sadly!).
