    That's a good idea too... Seems like there might be trouble when playing Byrds songs though haha... I think I will stick with the timed page turn... I guess my question now is (because I have no Linux experience and want to hit the ground running when the Pi gets here.) if anyone knows of an app for Linux that can turn pages based on time and remember the setting for each file as it's opened?

    Sounds like a LOT more involved than I have the skills to make happen. But it is a good idea maybe for someone smarter than me!. I looked up the tap-tempo concept, correct me if I'm wrong. But this is like whats on a decent metronome. You hit the "TAP" button at whatever speed and it tells you what the tempo is. Now if I did do this it would know the tempo but how would it know how many beats there are per page? Also many songs change time signatures a couple times throughout. It seems like I would still have to have metadata for each file telling whichever program i'm using to turn the page at a certain number of beats (varying for each song). If that's possible it seems that the timing idea (for each song) I had might be easier to do without the need for programming kno...see more »Sounds like a LOT more involved than I have the skills to make happen.

    Some of the songs are pretty busy and I don't want to stop playing to push the button with my hands or feet. Thanks for the reply though!

    Adobe Acrobat seems to have the timed page turn functionality. I have already ordered the raspberry pi (kind of a bite the bullet and hope it works approach).Does anybody know if the linux version has this function? Will it remember the set time per file?Here's the function that I'm referring to. http://www.wikihow.com/View-a-PDF-Document-in-Full...
