Need help with Orpheus? You’re in the right place!

Version 4.1 – February 2022

Version 4.1 Changelog

  • Maintenance: Addressed crashes & ANRs
  • Bug fix: Remove ‘add sub folders?’ notice when there aren’t any sub folders detected
  • Bug fix: Turn to next chart in a setlist using pedal
  • Improvement: Disable vertical scroll by default
  • New: search feature added to set list builder


This is predominantly a maintenance release fixing several bugs, resolving any crashes based on reports/analytics from usage, and improving general app performance.

One new feature has been added – the ability to use search when building a Set List. This has been requested frequently over the last 6 months and I’m pleased to be able to add it to help users who are gigging regularly and have a long index of charts to sort through when building out lists. Enjoy!

Everything about your software it’s fantastic. Mainly the clarity and reliability of the flow of information. It’s also very friendly. I see that you were considering a migrated/backup feature some time ago and I was wondering if that feature will soon be available. I have a folding Samsung phone which I like to make notes on and it would be awesome to be able to have my notes and personal annotations available on multiple devices. I am also a trumpet player and kindred spirit. Thanks!

Thanks Frank! Always nice to hear of people using and enjoying the app.

The use-case you describe sounds like more of a Cloud Sync feature? Whereby annotations are always up-to-date on multiple devices. I had something more static in mind for the migrate/backup function – more like a one-off export that would help people preserve data when upgrading their device. But I actually really like your idea. A sync would be a lot more flexible. I’ll do some technical exploration to see if this would be a viable approach. Thanks for the idea!

I second that. My annotations are very dear to me, and I’d really like to be able to back them up. A way to sync them between devices would definitely be a great bonus, though.

In any case, thanks for making and maintaining such a great app!
