Additional Controls

Play in / Hear in

Use the Play in / Hear in controls to quickly transpose your playing. In a worship team context it’s not that uncommon to be asked to practice in one key, perform in another or to change keys at the last minute on Sunday morning. 

The Play in/Hear in transpose controls give you all the flexibility you need to handle whatever is asked of you. Simply designate both settings per Patch and all the transposition required behind the scenes will be done for you. 

If you don’t need any specific transposition applied and your Patch(es) does not include any Easy Chord or Sequencer programming, you can simply set Play in and Hear in to any two matching keys. This results in no transposition being applied and is why the default settings for all Patches in Sunday Keys is “C”. 

If your Patch does include Easy Chord or Sequencer effects, their Input and Output notes will automatically be updated to follow adjustments you make to Play in and Hear in. For example: 

      • Your Patch “Great Patch” includes a Sound with Easy Chord. Play in and Hear in are both set to the key of G. 
      • Easy Chord is programmed with two Input Notes: G1 and D2
      • G1 outputs a G chord of several notes.
      • D2 outputs a D chord of several notes.
      • If you adjust Play in to the key of F, your G1 input note will shift to an F1. Your D2 input note will shift to a C2.
      • If you adjust Hear in to the key of A, your G Chord will become an A chord and your D chord will become an E chord.

The same logic described here would apply to all existing instances of Easy Chord and Sequencer, at the moment transposition changes are made to Play in and/or Hear in.


Octave Shift Controls

Depending on your Play In/Hear In selected keys, you may find that the audio shift affects the pitch too greatly.  For example, if transposing from the key of C to the key of B, by default all audio would be shifted up 11 semi-tones.  If you prefer the audio to instead be shifted down by one semi-tone, you can use the Octave Shift controls to affect either the Play In or Hear In shift.

The Tempo setting is shown at the top of the screen. Some Effects (like delays and MIDI Sequences, along with others) are influenced by the Tempo.  To adjust the setting, tap the Tempo display to open the Tempo controls.  You can enter your Tempo by either tapping into the Tap Tempo box, by using the step controls at the bottom, or by tapping the Tempo text and using the keyboard to enter the tempo.

Tap Tempo can also be saved to a Patch so the Tempo is automatically set on Patch selection. Tap the Patch Lock button next to Tempo to have a Patch recall the tempo, indicated by a closed lock icon.



The Effects/Notes toggle can be used to hide and reveal components of the UI. 


With Effects selected, the MIDI and Audio FX are shown; with Notes selected, the FX are hidden to reveal a Notes section, with the Notes shown reflecting the selected Snapshot.

By default, the Notes are empty.  To add a note, tap "Add Snapshot Note", then enter the Notes you'd like to save for the selected Snapshot.

Add Snapshot Note:


Enter Notes:


After entering your Notes, you will see that they are displayed when your Snapshot is selected.


Affect Effects/Notes via Patch Settings

You can automatically recall the Effects or Notes UI components depending on the Patch you're playing.  To do this, click a Patch's °°° menu, then tap Patch Settings.  In the Patch Settings menu, set the Visual state when Patch is Selected setting as desired. 




In the event that a MIDI note unexpectedly gets stuck, you can use the Panic button to clear all MIDI data in Sunday Keys and effectively reset the Audio engine.  

Master Volume

Set the overall volume of your Setlist through the Master Volume control.
