Lyrics box for practice/gigging

Lyricsbox 3-Up

While visiting family over Thanksgiving I witnessed this device in use – “Mark’s Magic Box” displays song lyrics and note changes to simplify band rehearsals. The setup uses a laptop + LCD for storage and display – controlled via foot-pedal which was built from a mouse and housed in a handmade metal enclosure. A teleprompter for music – very cool!

    Someone asked on flicker the software used. Nothing too magical – just powerpoint. This will be used live and it will sit next to the vocal monitor I am building.

    Mark – the maker of the magic box.
