You can instantly transpose a chord sheet, either by selecting a key from a drop down list or in full screen performance mode by tapping + or - to transpose up or down. Select your capo key and the chords are displayed in brackets. It even tells you what fret to use.
Effortless page turning. Hands-free - using USB or Bluetooth foot pedal or tap the touchscreen, USB button or keyboard. Turns the page and moves through a playlist.
In full screen mode you make the most of all the space on the screen. Menu and icon bars are switched off. The sidebar, which can also be switched on and off, shows the playlist, a clock, your performance notes and a link to an optional audio track, for example a backing track. Press 'M' or tap the clock and a metronome appears. Automatic single page display in portrait or multiple pages in landscape.
Annotate your music using tools to draw, highlight, add sticky notes, musical notation, fingering, bowing, performance marks, bar numbers for quick navigation and much more.
In large pieces of music or a score with many pages, Power Music's Performance Marks and Bar Numbers allow instant navigation to any page or part of the piece of music. This feature is especially important and useful for orchestral players and accompanists during rehearsals.
At a practice or rehearsal, add a performance note to a piece of music as a reminder. Use for organ registrations, intros and play order etc.
The chord sheet editor has all the features you need to make creating and editing chord sheets a breeze. Type in your chord sheets or paste in lyrics/chord sheets. A single click places a chord above the lyrics. Automatic detection of lyrics and chords. Copy and paste from Word documents or web pages or import directly from PDF, .rtf or .txt. All chord sheets are transposable - even the ones you import from Word or PDF!
Power Music has sophisticated PDF import features. If you want to import your paper sheet music the powerful built-in scanning software in Power Music makes life easy.
Power Music Box is integrated into all editions of Power Music. Power Music Box is a simple to use but incredibly powerful cloud storage system for sharing your music and playlists. At the click of a button send songs and playlists up to "My Box". Then securely download from My Box into other PCs, Macs or iPads running Power Music.
To save you the time of importing or scanning your music into Power Music, we have set up a on-line music shop called Power Music Store. All the songs you buy from Power Music Store become available in your Power Music Box account (free account available). For more information, visit powermusicstore.com.
As well as tagging, indexing and referencing your music, you can add web or social network links to all your songs. Clicking on an icon takes you to the artist's Facebook page, Twitter feed, YouTube video, iTunes song, or any other link you choose.
If you play in different bands or play different instruments or teach different music courses, you can organise your music into Libraries to make searching and displaying your music simple.
The Parts feature allows you to store multiple versions of a score in the one song then select the part you want to use. Parts could be for scores for different instruments or versions of the song in different keys.
Every song in Power Music can have an audio track linked to it. This can be used to play a backing track or simply as a help when practising. The audio track can be set to auto-play as soon as a song is selected from the playlist, or it can be played using a key press or a mouse click. The mini-player allows playback control and volume adjustment.
Power Music has been hailed as the greatest tool for VI musicians. Recommended by the RNIB and overseas VI organisations, Power Music has brought new life to musicians who thought their days of reading music were over. Enlarged music and configurable colours have made reading music possible for VI musicians all over the world.

One of Power Music's unique features is the melody search. If you know the melody to a song, by simply noting if the next note in the melody is the same (s) as the last note, or higher (u) or lower (l), for the first 8 notes then you can find the song! For example, entering "udduudd" will find Silent Night.
Visual or audio metronome which can appear automatically or by key press. A tempo can be set for each song. The guitar tuner sounds the note for each string for tuning purposes.
