Compositions in your music library are posted through the library system with all data concerning the composition available for editing. The library is displayed and various reports can be run against the database. Performance data can be posted and maintained, allowing the music director to view the performance history (three previous performances) for any composition. THE MUSIC MINDER also supports multiple music libraries. Some of the features provided are: a music library filing system, complete ordering information system, individual 3x5 library card printing, performance tracking, establishment of multiple libraries, performance history reports, and other reports based on composer, keywords and title.

It includes three distinct systems; (1) Music Ordering, (2) Music Library, (3) Performance Tracking. Written in Quicksilver, "The Music Minder" is designed to take the labor out of music management. F E A T U R E S : 1. Complete ordering information screen 2. Music library filing system 3. Performance tracking ability 4. Ability to establish multiple libraries 5. Performance history reports on screen and hardcopy 6. Reports based on Composer, Keywords, Title and more. 7. Browse the Library by keyword, composer, or title 8. Print individual 3 x 5 music library cards System Requirements: IBM PC,XT,AT,PS2 or %100 IBM compatible computer, 512k memory, 2 floppy disk drives or 1 fdd and a hard disk. (It is possible to run with 1 floppy, but storage is very limited.) Mono graphics card with mono monitor or CGA,EGA,VGA with a color monitor. Any color card with a mono monitor will not work properly with this release. An Epson or Epson compatible printer for hardcopy. "The Music Minder" Page 2 IN THE BEGINNING: First, make a backup copy of your program files and data files. I have tried to test "The Music Minder" on a number of computers and there should be no problems, but strange things happen with resident memory programs, static electricity, inept computer operators, lousy typists, etc. To Make a backup: Type the following command then press enter: Diskcopy A: A: This will copy all files. Label the disk and store. Print and read the documentation carefully. Installation of files in the proper directories is essential for the program to operate. To Print documentation: Turn on your printer: Type the command that follows and press enter: Type readme.txt > lpt1 HARD DISK INSTALLATION Make a directory for the program files. I use c:\muslib. (See example below). Then copy from your program disk all of the files in the root directory of the distribution disk. Then make another directory for your data files. I use c:\muslib\data. The data files are "MUSLIB.DBF" and "TITLE.NDX". All other files should be in your program directory. If the title.ndx file is in the same directory with the program, it will work but, you will not be able to use but one database. Almost every problem comes from files being in the wrong directory or the index file has been corrupted. Example: Type the following at the C: prompt. md c:\muslib md c:\muslib\data copy a:*.* c:\muslib copy a:\data\*.* c:\muslib\data FLOPPY INSTALLATION: Copy all programs onto a formatted floppy disk. Copy the data files (muslib.dbf and title.ndx) onto a second formatted floppy disk. Place the program disk in drive A: and the data disk in drive B: T0 START THE PROGRAM: TYPE "MUSMIND" at the C:> for hardisk users, the A:> for floppy users. If the installation has been performed correctly, the data drive setup screen will appear. Type in the drive and directory path and end with the back-slash. Example: "C:\muslib\data\" IF THE BACKSLASH IS LEFT OFF THE PROGRAM MAY CRASH AND BURN or HANG IN AN UNENDING LOOP. If this should happen--REBOOT the machine. Go to DOS and delete the file "setup.mem" in the program directory. Retype the "musmind" command and try again. ORDER ENTRY: Press the (O) option, then the (E) to enter music orders. Simply fill in the blanks on the screen with the information indicated and be sure and enter an order date. It is from this date your order will be printed. The information is saved and automatically can be accessed from the "Library System" for editing. Registration Information on Page 4 "The Music Minder" Page 3 MUSIC LIBRARY: Compositions already in your library can be posted through the library system under the (L)ibrary- (A)dd Music selection. All aspects of the composition can be posted and edited from the library system. Various printed reports are available or the database may be viewed on the screen. This is accessed through the (R)eports menu. Performances can be posted and maintained through the Performance System. Each entry is posted and a history of the three previous performances are updated. This allows the director to easily view the performance history of each selection. Multiple libraries may be kept by placing separate copies of the data files in different sub-directories. These "Libraries" may then be accessed by setting the proper program and data paths from the "Utilities" selection on the Main Menu. This also allows you to view the libraries of other musicians that also use "The Music Minder." . . B A C K U P Y O U R F I L E S O F T E N . . Trouble Shooting: #1. If the program refuses to come up-- Delete the setup.mem file and try again. This will allow you to define the paths for data and programs. #2. Errors occur in ordering of Compositions-- Reindex the database. This is found in the "Utilities" selection. #3. The System hangs-- Reinstall the program files, set paths for data and program, reindex the database. #4. Compositions that you know are there don't appear Reindex the database. #5. Other strange and unexplained things-- If these steps do not remedy the problem support can be obtained by registered users by calling area code 915-687-2126. Ask for Reid.
