What is the "Preparator" role?

The preparator is the person who prepares score materials in ChorusPlay, in order to share them with other ensemble members, for example, or use them himself. The preparator can be a musician colleague, your instructor or yourself. The ChorusPoint team can also take your score(s) preparation in charge, just ask!

Several steps, optional or not, are available to start from a simple paper music sheet and finally have a real digital material to work easily and in a playful way.

Preparator mode

To enable preparator mode, click on “I prepare my scores” from the main menu, and then enable “I am preparator” at the screen top right. Buttons “Import PDF file” et “Prepare a score” shows.

Preparation steps

  1. Scan and import the score in ChorusPlay (see this article and/or this video, in French)
  2. Adjust the score layout (rotation and margins cropping, see this article and/or this video, in French)
  3. “Map” the score (“trace” the score bars, see this article and/or this video, in French)
  4. Associate one or several mp3 files with the score(s) (see this video, in French). The preparator can also record himself voices in ChorusPlay (see this article and/or this video, in French).
  5. If needed, synchronize voices between them (see this article)
  6. Create the sequencing (see this article and/or this video, in French)
  7. Finally, when all is ready, the preparator can share score supports to other group members (see this article).
