Does anyone know where I can find a device that I can store my sheet music on electronically and let me play from it. Some of my sheet music is several pages long and its a real pain trying to continue playing and flipping sheets at the same time. With all the technology today I'm surprised someone hasn't developed such a thing.

MobileSheets, I know it's available for Android and Windows. Not sure if available for Mac. Free version limits the number of PDFs you can save at a time.

Flyfishin, there are a lot of options, depending on how much money you want to spend.

I use an iPad pro (the largest model), and a bluetooth foot pedal to turn the pages.

I use the app froScore to manage my sheet music pdfs.

Yes, the good news is there are a LOT of options to do just this!

As others have mentioned, a tablet, with a Bluetooth page turner, is pretty standard for the techy pianists here.

iPad with ForScore (there is a paid option for face gesture page turning).

Any Android, Chrome or Windows tablet with MobileSheets Pro.

And if you really want the size and contrast of eink, there is the Boox tablet and a couple of music specific ones too.

The best part is all of these allow for writing/annotations/notes with a stylus (or your finger) if you want.

Are there any that'll listen to audio or midi input and automatically turn when you reach the end of the displayed section?

I don't know if anyone thought of this, but it is actually an excellent idea and shouldn't be too hard to program (I think) for someone with the know how. In fact, it sounds like a patent-able idea to me.

I use ForScore on the iPad, the largest size, and a blue tooth pedal for page turning. When on the landscape position you can view 2 pages at a time. ForScore is a simple program and I have all my music backed up on iCloud which synchs to my other iPad. When I make changes to a piece it sychs and I have the changes on all my devices. It works for me.

I thought there was one that would let you put the metronome marking in it, and then you sort of press play and although you don't hear the metronome, it turns the page based on that.

Or maybe I'm remembering wrong and this was just what someone said they wanted?? whome

I am a big fan of android and mobile sheets pro.

You can pick up a TAB S7 FE 12.4-inch tablet for $420.

You will have a great music store/display solution for years to come.

As a bonus, a very capable tablet for not a whole lot of money

I used a Lenovo Yoga with a 14" screen for several years with MusicReader along with a USB page turner from AirTurn.
It was "okay", but not great.
There was always some glare from the reflective screen surface.
WACOM pen support on the Lenovo was sub-par.
I used two different styli over the 3 years; neither was particularly good.

The screen cracked after the machine was out of warranty (sigh).

So... I did my research, and I went for a PadMu.
I like it a lot.
It is basically a high end Boox tablet with a proprietary launcher from PadMu on top of it. You would buy it from PadMu in Italy (or through one of their distributors). With PadMu, you have the option to run TWO Boox devices side to side for a 2 page display - or - you can start with one, as I have, and either stay just with that, or add a 2nd when funds permit.

So far I am very happy with the purchase.
The display is crystal clear.
It works for me on stage as well as in rehearsal and practice.
It is MUCH easier to read; page turns are quite fast.
The supplied stylus works perfectly for me.
The software is also somewhat smarter than MusicReader in that it allows me to use it without having to produce "no turn back" versions. One can specify a range of pages to be played, repeated, then go on - and it simplifies the task of turning pages with the pedal to just pushing the forward pedal. Nice feature, not sure how many others support that.

App stores usually charge a commission to the developer. I prefer to pay the developer directly for their work.

Also, app stores give way more control to the store owners to control licensing, availability, downloads, ability to re-install or install on multiple devices. I feel on balance there's very little consumer benefit to them. Just my $0.02!

I am using Windows MobileSheets on a Surface pro 3. The tablet is old,(released in 2014) it still works very good with MobileSheets.

I bought it from the MS Store but future purchases will be from Zubersoft site.

Any questions post here and I will try to answer.

My next version will be on android because the tablet is much cheaper and I don't need full windows functionality anymore.
