For the page turning pedal, I also started with the AirTurn PED. This was a terrible solution as I play in my house, shoeless, on carpet. The force required to turn the pages was just too much. Perhaps it would be great for other instruments, played while standing, etc.
I swapped the PED for the PageFlip Butterfly and have been very happy. Only a slight press with a toe is enough to turn the pages, and it's stable on the floor. I don't accidentally switch pages or have presses missed - it's just the right balance for my situation. It takes a short period of time to get used to the jump/scroll, but not long.
I love the forScore+PageFlip Butterfly solution. All I I take is my old iPad to my lessons, with all of the pieces handily indexed and bookmarked. I can add notes to the scores, highlight things, etc. The in-app metronome remembers the tempo settings for each piece. There's a lot to love in the app.
ForScore does not use folders, but you can use the genre to separate music easily. For me, I have music organized by solo guitar, guitar duo, flute and guitar, guitar quartet, and holiday music. With each category pieces are listed alphabetically by composer. It's an easy system.
Agree! It's very easy to use, and with a scanner I can scan thing straight into my iPad and forScore.Christopher Freitag wrote: ↑Mon Aug 21, 2017 4:27 pmIn general I like the iPad ForScore/pedal combination a lot. I use a Mac as my desktop machine, and I keep PDFs of all my scores in Dropbox. ForScore makes it very easy to import scores from Dropbox or other cloud services. A couple of weeks ago, I bought the score to Walton's Five Bagatelles. From opening the envelope containing the score to transferring the full piece to my iPad took about 10 minutes for 16 pages.
IOS 11, which is currently available as a Beta, provides a new "Scanner" function in the Notes app that uses the iPad camera. It's very good and will auto detect page size, correct aspect ratio etc. You can also create multi page PDFs with it and can then open the scores directly in forScore.
I was wondering the same thing for a while. forScore will crop the pages (I think automatically) to remove the white space, which means that in portrait orientation, a 9.7 inch iPad will display one page of music at a scale of about 90%. If you go for the 10.5 inch, you can display one page at full size. The 12.9 inch is not big enough to display two pages at anything like full size, so there's not much point getting that one unless you want the big screen anyway.
