Don’t take our word,. See what our users say about liveChord!
I have searched high and low….surfed the depths of the internet…turned over every rock in the stream….and all I have to say is… liveChord is the treasure I have been looking. No other chord chart display program can touch it. Hat’s off to the people at liveChord! Rev Quigley Foran Minister of Worship New Life Fellowship
Our praise band really likes liveChord. We had searched for a few years trying to find the right software for our musicians. liveChord fits perfectly. Before the software everyone had huge bulky binders that were always falling apart and were difficult to turn pages. Now all they have to do is show up to practice or Sunday services and everything is ready to go. We really like the ability of the secondary screen for capo music. It just makes everything work more smoothly. No more paper copies for everyone to keep up with. Live chords technical support is also great to work with. Any time I have a question they are right there to answer it for me and help me through setup. It is a very easy program to use. Thanks very much to live chord. Mark Ponton Round Oak Baptist Church
“It simply makes our team run much smoother” Awesome! liveChord has made it possible for our worship team to really focus on managing our time together, which is limited. When we come together for practices all the technical stuff is already done (chord charts complete, in a key of choice, tempo set, a sample audio track of the original and even a support track is ready in some cases). It’s great to have all of the songs in our repertoire at the touch of a button, with the ability to change the key on the fly if a different person is going to lead. The ability of having our entire agenda already in place at the time of service is a key element for any worship team. It simply makes our team run much smoother and focus upon what we are there to do. WORSHIP and create an atmosphere for the Holy Spirit to move! Thanks LiveChord! Derin Dufor Worship Leader
This is the perfect program for running “digital chord charts” in a live setting. We use a lot of support tracks and drum loops. liveChord allows me to attach these to the chord charts so that when I select a particular song on the play list it automatically loads the loop/track and all I have to do is press the space bar to start the song. It’s so easy to use even our drummer can do it! 🙂 Benjamin Pounds Technical Director Conway TX
liveChord has changed us forever! No more digging for sheet music and running to make copies for all the musicians, no more of that question I hear everytime, “What are we doing tonight?”. All we do is sit down at our instruments and we all know the set list! Our drummer is especially in love with liveChord because now he knows exactly what part of the song we are going to when we signal! Thanks liveChord for making practices so much smoother!!

liveChord is licensed per computer. The liveChord complete system includes a computer and a license. If you wish to run liveChord on additional computers, for example, personal use at home, you will need to purchase an additional license for that computer. One license is required for each computer running liveChord.
This all depends on how many musicians you have and whether or not you have your own computer hardware.
1) If you already have your own computer hardware, then all you need is the liveChord – Interactive digital chord chart application.
2) If you do not have your own computer hardware, then you will want to check out the liveChord Complete System.
3) Next, determine the number of musicians you have and maybe add a couple for future growth and that will determine which complete system is right for you. You can always add additional liveChord Musician Stands at any time.
The liveChord Complete System includes everything you need to provide interactive digital chord charts to your team. You will receive the liveChord – Interactive digital chord charts application, a Microsoft Windows based PC with wireless keyboard and mouse, a VGA or HDMI distribution amplifier, cables, and the specified number of liveChord Music Stands. Each liveChord Music Stand will include a wide-screen LCD monitor, a music stand and a custom liveMount bracket that will make mounting the LCD screen on the music stand a snap.
No. liveChord is a stand-alone Windows application that does not require an internet connection in order to run. However, liveChord utilizes SMTP when sending agendas. Therefore, you will not be able to send liveChord agendas to your team if you do not have an active internet connection.
Also, there are many great remote control applications such as DameWare’s Mini Remote Control, CITRIS’s GoToMyPc, TeamViewer or just a windows RDP connection that will allow you to remotely connect to your liveChord pc. This will allow you manage your chord chart database, agendas and even send agendas to your team just as if you were sitting at the pc. When you get to the stage for a recording session, rehearsal or live performance everything is ready to go.
The fastest way to add a song to liveChord is to purchase the downloadable digital chord chart from liveChord.com If your are entering the chord chart yourself, it all depends on how long and how complicated the song is and whether you already have it in another format. If you have the chord chart in Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF or some other text format then you can just copy and past the chord chart right into the liveChord chord chart editor. The editor also offers several features to expedite the chord chart entry process. Use the Song Template feature to enter a blank song template if your starting from scratch. The chord chart format feature is great for laying out the chord chart to make it more readable. It adds spaces and indentation to the chord chart. If you are starting from scratch, it should take no more tha five minutes to enter a complete chord chart and that includes formatting and attaching MP3 tracks.
