calling all chaotic songwriters...
I made SOAPP so I had a way to organise all of my songs, recordings and lyric ideas in one place, including all the important details about writers, splits and tunecodes, without having to scroll endlessly through the notes app or google drive. It's what I use to capture song ideas, work on lyrics, collaborate on cowrites, give mix notes to my producer and keep my label up to date with recording progress. It's truly helped me get my shit together.
Built on the free docs+database app Notion, SOAPP has:
- separate databases for songs and recordings, that you can link together
- sections for your lyrics and chords with buttons to quickly add a new section
- a table to keep track of notes to your producer/collaborators/team
- a place to jot down quick lyric ideas, that will show up as inspo every time you work on a song
- a place to upload voicenotes and bounces and embed reference playlists
- ability to share pages with your team to collab in realtime and keep everyone up to date
- fully customisable interface - you can upload your branding and logo, your fave gifs, move things around, embed things... (Notion is basically digital lego)
