    I have two books with 180 transposed hymns, which are becoming too heavy for the music stand. I would like to load them into a format for viewing on an Apple IPAD. What would be the best way of displaying the sheet music? PDF, DOC or image. Has anyone else tried a similar exercise? Any suggestions will be most welcome. Thanks

    Hi Jeff, drop Paul an e-mail, i know he uses the large ipad for gigs, and i think he has a foot pedal to change the page on the ipad.

    Hi Sxpoet, it’s about which app I should use. I’m converting all the pages to PNG images, which is taking ages as I only did 19 tunes this afternoon! When I’ve finished this task then I can try the various S/W options, whether a large PDF or PPS etc. I really need to be able to quickly go from viewing one sheet to another. We don’t have very much time between tunes!

    Jeff, a bit off subject, but just curious if you had come across Sam Levines gospel sax arrangements (many of which are hymns)?
    Great sax playing and arrangements IMO. An inspiring addition to my music collection…

    Hi Kevin. Thanks for the introduction, I don’t know this artist but I’ll see if I can find any of his music here. I’ve just bought Hymns Ancient and Modern Revised from Canterbury Press, which has 636 Hymns with music and lyrics. The old hymns have strong scriptural based lyrics. I find them very enjoyable to play at home and in church. Cheers
