Carl,
When do you expect to release the updated Iphone app? It seems to have a lot of important upgrades.
Thanks,

Socalmagic, I am working on the upgrades while on the road for 2 weeks and expect them to be done by the time I get home and ready to upload to Apple. Grassos, the iPad price will probably go up at least another $10 once all it's extra features, unique to the iPad screen, are added.

Haven't take a video yet, but here's the set up I use for 99% of my shows with the new upgrade - Show Cues for iPad.

Very Cool Gary! I noticed you are not using the countdown timer, one of my favorite features Smile

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate how responsive Carl is. I had a couple of features I wanted to see in Show Cues and he's working on it! He responded to my emails very quickly, too.

I just purchased Show Cues yesterday and have begun working with it. I have several shows next week and will use it there and give my feedback on it. So far, it seems great.

Michael,

Got your message, will reply properly to you later today as I'm just heading out to another gig tonight.

Carl,

I don't use the timer, simply because this is a show I perform hundreds of times a year and I know exactly how long it runs for. However, I have several shows later this month where I have a 10 or 15 minute spot to perform, the timer will be very handy in these gigs to keep me on track!

I can't wait to receive the remote so I can give this a good try. If it works well I might cancel my pre-order for the Happie Amp Ultimate Control. Anyone else thinking about this?

I haven't pre-ordered the Happie Amp Ultimate Control but, if this works the way I hope it does, I won't be looking at that any longer. Show Cues should do everything I need so it will take care of my needs.

Carl,
On another thread you mentioned you were developing a hands-free magnetic remote. That is very useful, but I thought I would reccomend offering the hands-free remote with a pocket remote on the same frequency. That would allow you to start the music hands-free or from your pocket, as well as skip tracks and control volume from your pocket. I'm looking forward to the update!

Thanks Socalmagic, I will mention your suggestion to Shawn and the manufacturer.

Hi
I currently use an iPod with set playlists for my shows. Each track has silence in between the tunes.
Can someone tell me what benefit this programme would give me over my current set up?

Thanks

Chris

You won't have to put silent tracks between the music tracks, you will have the ability to fade the music out and have the next track back at the correct volume (without having to try to do this manually), you'll have a very clear user interface that has color coding so you know whether the iPod is paused, playing or fading out.

The biggest thing for me is the ability to fade the music. I have some tracks I have to end early and I don't like ending them abruptly.

Thanks Michael.
I've now seen the Happy Amp remote and confused as to whether this would be a better investment?
Anyone else looked into both?

I have considered both but, since I already have an iPod Touch and an iJet Nav remote, it made more sense to go with Show Cues. At this point, Show Cues is being updated at the end of the month, according to Carl. If the update works as described, Show Cues will do everything I need.

I agree Michael, the updates sound great. So nice to have an app that we can suggest ideas for that are actually taken on board! Well done Carl!

Ultimately I'd like to control the music via an ankle switch or some other device that's hands free to control. Could this system be used for such operations?
