There's a few different ways to make this happen.
My preferred method is using Song Groups to differentiate songs. So the first thing you'll want to do is look for the 'Manage Song Groups' button. It's near the top-right of the Song Deck and looks like a blue folder.
This will let you create New Song Groups, which basically act like tags. Go ahead and create a couple for the different service types you have.
After you create these Song Groups, now it's time to work on the song itself.
The first step is duplicating the song. Opening the Cue Editor to the Foreground layer, you'll see a 'Save' and a 'Save As' button. Click Save As, and you have a couple of additional options at this point (which aren't really necessary):
- change the song title (not my favorite option)
- make the Song ID reflect your service type (ie Traditional-1)
Regardless of whether you change the title or the Song ID, while still in Cue Editor, go to the Data tab and you'll see a checklist of Song Groups on the left side. Check the box that corresponds to the service type you want. and close Cue Editor.
Now back in Song Deck, you'll notice a drop-down menu underneath the search field (it currently says 'Entire Library'). Clicking this drop-down will show you all of the Song Groups you have available. Selecting a specific Song Group will show ONLY the songs that are tagged to that group.
So now as you build up your library, just continue to tag songs as you create them and you can find the songs created specifically for that service type by narrowing the Song Deck search to that Group.
But will there actually be two different songs? There will be crossover and my concern is that the traditional service might want to shorten the song, where the contemporary will do several choruses and tags. So I need two versions available. I was thinking the ONLY way to do that is to change the title.
