How do you use your POD HD on stage?
I reserve a bank of 4 tones (ABCD) for one song, then put all the songs we play after each other. And then the sets we play in different sets.
That's a lot of tones and a lot of those are copies of the same basic tone.
However, it works for me, because I always have the few I need at hand, have a 'setlist' on stage and I use it to interface with a computer to make the lighting software 'know' which song we play.
The only thing is: putting the tones in the right order for every gig.
I use the following Excel sheet for that.
What it does is:
- Allow you to keep a list of all songs in the repertoire and store all information and comments from band members
- Build a set list by simple draging songs
- Make an Excel list and a list in word of this list to put on stage
- Import a HD bundle file and export a re-shuffled bundle file. It re-shuffles based on the song sequence you build and tone names used for song as defined in the song overview.
Maybe it works for others as well, have fun with it!
There is an example bundle and example songs in the file so you can check out the re-shuffling right away.
