    Setlists and songs

    I want to begin by saying I think "setlists" is an awesome new feature I look forward to utilizing. While "songs" seems to be a solution to the problems encountered primarily in the II, not the III. Let me explain: Back in the II days, I had to set up my banks as groups of five, in...
