SongbookDB Quick Start Set Up Guide for DJs

If you don't already have a SongbookDB account (for DJs, not singers), first sign up:

Sign up here: 30 Day Free Trial Sign-Up, and follow the instructions in the email we send you.

Then follow the next 4 steps:

  1. Install Adobe AIR (if your computer doesn't already have it): http://get.adobe.com/air
  2. Install SongbookDB Pal®: https://www.songbookdb.com/updater/pal/songbookdb_pal.air
    (Windows & Mac compatible)

    This is the desktop app that you use to create, edit and upload your song lists. It's also one of the apps that receives song requests. It doesn't have copy protection - feel free to install it on any computer(s) you wish to create your song lists from, and, unless you're a PCDJ Karaoki™ or MTU Hoster® user, install it on any computers that you want to receive song requests on.

    STOP!! If you're a PCDJ Karaoki™ or an MTU Hoster® user, please follow the instructions below (all other DJ's please skip to step 3):

    PCDJ Karaoki™ users:

    Please install the following plugin onto all the computers which you have PCDJ Karaoki™ installed on. The plugin is what allows song requests to appear in Karaoki™:

    SongbookDB Karaoki™ Plug-in

    VERY IMPORTANT: you must watch the following video, as the song list set up process is very different for PCDJ Karaoki™ users, and if not followed correctly will result in song requests not loading into Karaoki™:

    MTU Hoster ® users:

  4. Watch the main Quick Start video here: Quick Start Video for DJs, or you can find the guides and full documentation for each of the SongbookDB programs and apps here: Full Documentation
  5. The online dashboard for setting up your venues, gigs etc and for controlling your account is here: https://www.songbookdb.com/dashboard (bookmark the page once you get there!)

That's it!

Singers can get the SongbookDB app from the iOS app store, Google Play, or simply browse to songbookdb.com on their phones. Once they have it, tell them to enter the 5-6 character code that you set up in your dashboard.
