Scorch 1.1, AirTurn and iPad crash

I recently upgraded to the new iPad (3rd generation) and now every time I try to use Scorch with my AirTurn BT-105, Scorch crashes. If I turn Bluetooth off, the app will work correctly.

Is this a known bug?

Interesting. I haven't been able to get my AirTurn to work with 1.1 at all on my iPad 2 and AirTurn have raised that as a bug with Avid

Hi all,

Have you seen the videos here? http://www.airturn.com/bt-105-faqs/u...e-bt-105-v-122

If it's still not working, I can raise the issue with our product management team to see if they have any further update.

Best wishes,

Hi Joe
I have bought forScore because of all the issues I have with Scorch and that works fine with my AirTurn. I contacted Air Turn and they have also raised a call with the Avid development team for issues with Scorch and AirTurn.
I am using an iPad 2 and as far as I am aware, everything is running on the latest versions. Issues with Scorch are:
Try visiting your store and it crashes.
Often open files and get an error that there was a problem opening the file. Open a second time and the file opens normally but the new menu bar isn't visible but the buttons are actually there so I can go back to my library, switch to music stand view etc. just by clicking where the button would be. (I have the original menu bar with things like store.) this is random, files usually open ok but occasionally get an error when the file has opened previously.
Files frequently open on the last page in music stand view. (not had any problems with play back or transposition).
Search doesn't work, it finds the file but always opens the first one.
I can't forward or backward pages with my AirTurn, nothing happens at all (but the air turn is connected and works normally with other apps).
Files I have problems with are free ones from your store and those I created in G7 or Sibelius 7.
Have also noticed that view frequently reverts to book case mode where I tend to have it in list mode. I appreciate you can't tell us when you are going to upgrade but it would be useful to get the bugs fixed or let me roll back to version 1 as I found that a lot more stable.
Request for new fetures, a set list and then for files to open in succession in whatever view I am using, typically landscape music stand. (Basically I want to be able to do what I can in forScore but without having to convert my files from sib to pdf first as scorch is great with transposing and play back and just needs the bugs fixed and a bit more functionality!)

Hi Fraser,

Thanks for your comments and suggestions - I think we're aware of most of these problems but I'll make sure that your comments are seen by our product management team.

Best wishes,

Any chance of getting back to 1.0 if Avid are not releasing an update soon as it was a lot more reliable than this current version.

Hi Fraser,

Sorry, there isn't a way of installing older builds of any app that I know of.

Best wishes,

I looked at ForScore but I found Donemus Sheet Music App. It can do most of what ForScore can and is free.
I hope they fix Scorch soon. Pretty soon I'll have all my scores transfered into Donemus and won't use scorch naymore.

Re: Scorch 1.1, AirTurn and iPad crash
I've been using ForScore for well over a year now. I prepare my files in Sibelius and then PDF them and import into ForScore. It has proved rock solid and isn't that expensive and has all the features I need. It is also upgraded regulary. It's a very crowded market place, but I have no regrets. You have clearly done your research and got what meets your needs! Enjoy!!!!!:-)

Re: Scorch 1.1, AirTurn and iPad crash
As to fixing scorch, I would forget it. AVID Clearly have since they got rid of the developers.:mad:

Scorch 1.1, AirTurn and iPad crash
The problem with PDFs is that I cannot transpose them :-)
With the unexpected v1.2 update, I am very slightly optimistic I will be able to use Scorch again.

EDIT: I have tested Airturn with Scorch v1.2 and it seems to work well so far.
Also Airturn have released Digit, a handheld device that works via Bluetooth in the same way, however it is possible to still add on the pedals like the original Airturn unit, so works as either. It has 6 buttons. I have not tested it with Scorch but I presume it would work the same.

Re: Scorch 1.1, AirTurn and iPad crash
Yep my airturn also works with 1.2 and iPad 2 which is good news. Still think I will be using forScore a bit longer though, but hopefully Scorch may get the additional features and slightly smother page turns soon when I can then transpose on the fly. So far, no crashes which is encouraging.

For anyone interested, I have tested v1.2 with ipad 1 and Airturn. Turning pages is a little slow and you end up seeing the Desk before the next page loads. If you are reading ahead it should not be much of a problem.

Re: Scorch 1.1, AirTurn and iPad crash
You also briefly see the desktop with an iPad 2 and AirTurn.
