A simple horizontal, text editor called LYRIC TRACK. I can’t believe this hasn’t been done before in any DAW!
A Lyric Track placed directly below an existing Chord Track would be invaluable!
More tracks could be used If you’re considering completely different lyrical content ideas or harmony counterparts.
Just create a midi track below the Lyric Track to document the melody line and mute it before you or a singer sings it.
And just as Chord Track does, Lyric Track would also fallow the playhead as expected.
Phrases could then be selected, and a pointer placed to an exact syllable to line the phrase to any given chord or beat.
Editable! (you don’t know how good your lyrics are until you think of a better line. That’s why the Beatles used erasers)
If you’re like me, I usually write 3X more lyrics per song then I end up using. No problem. Enter- multiple versions.
