Audio Cues supports three kinds of cues:
Audio cues work with all standard audio file formats, including WAV, OGG and more.
Fade cues can change volume, pan from left to right, or serve as Stop cues
Go to cues let you loop through groups of audio cues.

Audio and Fade cues have these features:
• Cue number and title
• Master, left and right volume
• A trigger (the Go button, or with or after the previous cue)
• A delay to run the cue a certain amount of time after the trigger
• A shortcut to run the cue from a keyboard or remote control

Audio cue features include:
• A target pointing to a particular audio file
• A starting point, letting you jump past the start of an audio file
Number of play times, including support for infinite loops

Fade cue features include:

Stop the target audio cue(s)

Other features include:
• Integration with Google Drive and other file sharing services to transfer audio files to your Android device
• Support for Bluetooth remote controls and keyboards to trigger cues during performances
• Backup and restore shows to ZIP files

Keyboard shortcuts:
• Up and down cursor keys to scroll through the cue list

Importing Audio Files
Import audio files from:

We recommend Audacity, a free desktop application, for creating audio files.
