Can You Manage Large Setlists in Arrangement View?

Published 11 months ago • 1 min read


Some people think Session View eats Arrangement View’s lunch when it comes to managing massive setlists. I’m going to show you exactly why they’re wrong.

This topic gets people really fired up. And I get it — we’re all used to doing something a certain way and we get comfortable doing it that way.

And when it comes to running tracks on stage with a massive setlist that may need to be quickly reordered, a lot of people seem to think Session View is the obvious choice.

But I’m going to challenge that today and share why Arrangement View — if used correctly — is actually much more ideal for managing a massive setlist than Session View.

Plus-in today's tutorial, I'll show you how it's possible to manage a large about of songs, without a plug-in or app.

All I ask is you just let yourself be open to an alternative option. You’re allowed to still disagree, but it’d be kind of lame to never even give something else a shot. Just saying :)
