We have made changes to Power Music to allow selection of all key signatures - sharps and flats in major or minor keys.
The current setting were based on the most widely used keys, but there are occasions when different options are required.
We have therefore added a couple of buttons to enable this feature, both in the main selection screen for transposing and in the edit screen for setting up the key signature for the song.
Before public release we are asking for feedback from our users. you can download the new version here.
Once installed the next time you run it you will be prompted to install an update because it is a different version from the live one. Don’t install the update to continue using the test version. We will inform you when it becomes live so that you can then update to the final live version.
If the changes confusing or not self-explanatory then please let us know. These buttons use the following rules:
Pressing the button will change the available keys in the list - except for the original song key. The only place you can change that is in the editor. The list will drop down to show the changes.
The song chords will change for transposed keys if the enharmonic equivalent is changed by the button. Songs transposed to C major will also be changed to sharps or flats.
The major keys without accidentals - A, B, D, E, F, G will continue to use their default key signature regardless of whether you have selected sharps or flats for the list.
Minor keys without accidentals - C, F, G will have their chords changed because the relative major is changed by this.
As above, but you can change the original key and the other lists will change according to the same rules.
Please leave feedback here over the weekend. We are keen to get this live as soon as possible, but it has been a complicated change so it has to function correctly.
