Chord Maestro was made for worship leaders and live bands that are tired of using music stands and having to deal with an ever expanding library of paper chord charts.
Although there are a couple of existing tools (you know the ones) that claim to offer similar functionality, none of them make it as easy as Chord Maestro. Why should you have to create a chord chart in some weird format just to get it to display on a confidence screen?
Chord Maestro takes a KISS (keep it simple stupid) approach to solving the chord display problem by requiring chord charts to be simple PDF files.
That's right, no more entering a bunch of custom tags to get the chord chart to display correctly. No more having one version of the chord chart for printing and another for display. Just create your chord chart using whatever tool you want (e.g.
Word, Planning Center Online, Chord Pro, scanned, hand written, whatever) and then display it with Chord Maestro.
Chord Maestro allows you to control navigation manually (e.g. foot pedal, iPhone, iPad) or via synchronization with a MIDI device that supports MIDI Time Code.
Chord Maestro makes no assumptions about your equipment since it's just using straight up MIDI communications (which has been a standard probably since before you were even born).
You create your chord charts using whatever tool you want and then control Chord Maestro using whatever MIDI devices you have available. If you use a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) like Sonar or Logic, you can control Chord Maestro with it. If you use a drum machine, you can most likely control Chord Maestro with it.
If you have one of those cheap Casio keyboards from the 80s, you can probably control Chord Maestro with it. A ton of MIDI devices can send MIDI Time Code and thus make them potential control sources for Chord Maestro.
Version 1.0: Chord Maestro provides several features that allow worship leaders and live bands to effectively display chord charts on a computer, TV, or large screen.
