with your friends
Creating lyrics and songs together with your friends is supposed to be a fun activity, but often it gets overshadowed by the cost of time, paper and ink. If you also feel like that you have most definitely come to right place. Here we will explain what SetlistR is and how we can make the songwriting process more fun and easy!
What is SetlistR?
SetlistR is an online PWA (Progressive web application) for musicians all around the world where you can create lyrics with visual chords and store them in the cloud. Hosting your lyrics in the cloud makes sure that you always have your material with you no matter where you go.
Back in the earlier 2000’s the developers behind SetlistR were musicians just like You. Over the years they thought about what was missing back in the days and one thing came to their mind: An online hosting service that would contain your whole lyrics library so that you always have your material with you. A service where You could create customised setlists and play them on stage instead of organising a folder and bring along tons of papers every time you play a gig. In simple words, SetlistR is your all-in-one tool where you create beautiful lyrics, create customised setlists and share material between you and your band-members.
Create lyrics with your friends
With SetlistR you and your friends can create lyrics together. With SetlistR Groups you create a closed group and add members to it. After your members have accepted your invitation You will be able to share material between in each and help each other maintain material in your shared drive.
The lyrics are saved in the cloud.

Maintain lyrics with your friends

Display chords on your lyrics.
You can display beautiful SVG guitar chords on your lyrics just by writing the chords name above a lyric-line. Writing a chord either as ChordPro or simply by writing the name will render a beautifully designed SVG image of the how you play the chord, just like you know it from websites like UltimateGuitar.
Make comments for your friends.
Do you need to remember small details or do you need to sing something completely different at one place in the song? You can remind yourself or help reminding your group members by adding comments to your groups lyrics. Comments can be used to write anything no matter if it is a private message or a reminder about something.
Comments are encrypted and can only be read by You or the users that have access to the specific lyric that you wrote the comment on.
Print the lyrics with one click.
Sometimes it is nice to have a hard-copy of your lyrics and we know that. That’s why we have built in a print button which will optimise the view of your lyric and afterwards print it for you. We encourage you not to print lyrics onto physical paper, since one of our main goals with SetlistR is to bring down the use of paper in the music-industry, but we also understand that under special circumstances you need that hard-copy.
