Topic: Need iPhone app to control show
Message: Posted by: Chris Meece (Mar 10, 2011 10:04AM)
I just purchased the Logitech Wireless USB Speaker Z515. http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-USB-Speaker-Z515/dp/B003VAHYXW/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

It just occurred to me that I could use this with my iPhone for a mini sound system for a small show. The sound would only be adequate for a small gathering, maybe a living room, but it would be a nice entry point for me to play with. I am now learning hypnosis and it would be nice to use something like this for music to be cued when say I have someone convinced they are a riverdance dancer.

I am looking for something that could cue up tracks and maybe have a sound board function. The ability to switch tracks using only the hard volume buttons while wearing it on my hip would be awesome, but Apple may block the ability to do that.

Do any of you sound/iPhone gurus have any suggestions?

Edit: I had posted this in the F/X forum and hadn't had any responses yet. I was afraid it would be missed by someone who would have an answer. I apologize for the double post but feel this forum will have better results.

Um.. not sure if this would work.. But if you have a computer available to run it all, you could probably use the VLC remote. It brings up all the tracks and sounds that you have. You could just pick and choose, pause, fast forward. All of that. You just have VLC on your computer paired with your phone. Then you have your list of audio in VLC.

You could also use the Apple Remote app. It would connect to your computer and you could view the playlist on your computer and choose all your music and sound effects.
