Gig Performer 4.x User Manual

Click on the More... button or right click on any song or a song part to open the Manage setlists contextual menu. This contextual menu contains various commands for managing setlists, songs and song parts:


This menu is split into three organizational units - Setlists, Songs, and Song Parts:


Add New Setlist... - opens a setlist name dialog and adds a new setlist in the browser (the new setlist becomes the current setlist).

Remove Selected Setlist... - removes the selected setlist and sets the previous setlist as the current setlist.

Duplicate Selected Setlist... - opens a setlist name dialog and creates a copy of the selected setlist in the setlist editor (this duplicate becomes the current setlist). This menu item is grayed out when the All Songs list is active.

Rename Selected Setlist... - opens a setlist name dialog and allows renaming of the selected setlist. The renamed setlist is automatically sorted in alphabetical order.

Add Song(s) to Setlist... - opens a new dialog with the list of all songs where you can easily add a song (or songs) to the setlist.

Export All Setlist Songs... - exports all songs from a setlist to a user defined folder.

Create Gig From Setlist... - allows you to export a setlist to a stand-alone gig file.


Find song... - choose this command to open the Quick song finder window displaying all of the songs currently in the setlist. To add a song from the list in the window to the current setlist, select the song you want to add and either press the Enter key or double-click it. Press the Escape key or click the Close button when you have added all the songs you want in this setlist.

Create New Song... - opens the Song Properties dialog and allows you to create a new song.

Duplicate Selected Song... - opens a Song name dialog and makes a copy of the selected song.

Import Song(s)... - opens a new dialog and allows you to select one or more .gpsong files to import. Refer to the File extensions used in Gig Performer chapter for more information on different file types in Gig Performer.

Export Selected Song... - opens a new dialog and allows you to save a song in the .gpsong file.

Remove Selected Song... - removes the selected song from the current setlist.

Remove Selected Song Permanently... - removes the selected song from all setlists.

Lock/Unlock Selected Song - choosing this menu item blocks changes to rackspace assignments in a selected song. This protects the selected song from accidental modification. Clicking on a rackspace in the browser when the song is locked produces an error message. Use Shift + click to apply to all songs.

Quick Assign Rackspace/Variation... - opens the Quick Rackspace/Variation Finder window, allowing you to immediately switch to any rackspace and variation.

Song Properties... - opens the Song Properties dialog.

Add This Song To Setlist - adds a song to a setlist; select the song in the browser, then choose this menu item, picking a target setlist from the drop-down menu.

Song parts

Add New Song Part - opens a Song part name dialog and creates a new song part in the song currently selected in the browser.

Duplicate Selected Song Part - makes a copy of the selected song part.

Remove Selected Song Part - removes the selected song part from the current song.

Push Song Part Changes to Rackspace - selecting this menu item overwrites the current variation with any changes made to widgets and then stored to a song part using the Capture Variation Edits button. After changes have been written back to the original variation, the red indicator next to the button goes out, and the Compare and Revert buttons disappear. Note: If you edit values on the fly and like the changes, this is how you save those changes. If you want to keep the original variation as well, make a duplicate of it before clicking the Capture Variation Edits button.

Bulk Reset to Different Rackspace/Variation... - this menu item enables replacing a rackspace variation, everywhere it occurs, with a different variation. This makes it fast and easy to change e.g. all of your piano sounds in one gesture when you get a new, more glorious piano instrument or sound. Choose the rackspace you want to use as a replacement and after accepting the change in the confirmation dialog, all instances of the old variation will be replaced with the new variation.

Song Part Properties... - opens the Song Part Properties dialog.
