Jon, currently the remote is using a hardware fade when you use the center fade button. It has to go down and up one step at a time and that is the process required. However I am working on an update that will allow a perfect SOFTWARE fade and instant reset! Stay tuned.

Hi Carl - can you give us an idea of when you think this update will be ready? I promise I won't hold you to a date, just hoping for a rough estimate.

Thanks,
Tony

Aloha Guys, I would like to have it ready before the end of the month. A bit difficult working around my busy travel schedule this holiday season but I am still shooting for that goal. Will keep everyone posted on our Show Cues facebook page.

Thanks for your support!

I just bought show cues and just read throught the manual and have a question about the remote.

In the instructions, it mentions that it will take a 20 second fade if I were to use the remote control fade. Does this mean that my audience will still be hearing 20 seconds of music after I press the fade button on the remote?

Can anyone confirm this, or do I have it wrong?

Perry, thanks for your support. The 20 seconds refers to the time it takes to fade-out and then be ready to play the next track. The audience will hear nothing after the fade-out until you press the play button after the reset. The update I am working on now will fade-out with an INSTANT reset!

I would like to say I am very happy with the app and love it, thanks for all the hard work that you have put into it. Have already used it several times with no problems.

Just got the remote and playing around with it, works good, the fade is not a big problem but I would go ahead as you have planned and update to a software fadeout and that I beleive will make everybody happy.

One little thing about the remote, do not expect that you will hear any audio coming out of the speakers in the IPad even if you do not have the output cord plugged in as the dock automatically sets the output to the headphone output. Was confusing for a few minutes until I realized what was going on.

Duh on my part, especially after I saw this quote form Carl on another thread:

"When you plug in the dock you will NOT hear sounds until you plug into a sound system or headset, that is the way the remote and dock work."

Thanks James! Yes the software fade is perfect and very exciting, I know everyone will love it! That part is working great, I am not just adding back in all the frills as I did a complete rewrite of the App. It will look the same but work like butter Smile

Carl

PS Please remember to comment and rate 5 stars on the App Store, it really helps us, Mahalo!

Carl,

I did a demo of the app at our Ring 35 meeting this month and others were definitely interested. It was very well received.

Did not have the remote then, but I will be using it at our annual banquet next month for the Ring.

Did I understand that you were rewriting the app? Any particular reason for you to do so or is it just a function of the software fade?

Thanks James!
I rewrote it because another developer came up with an open source class file that will now allow me to create a perfect software fade. I had been wanting this for a long time and now it is possible. Also a new SDK came out from Apple that allow other improvements in the functionality of the App. It will look the same but run even better!

Thanks again for doing the demo to your Ring 35!
