What Is Go Button?

Go Button is a mobile, self-contained sound cue playback system designed for live shows.

Live shows often require carefully timed music and sound cues which need to play consistently at every performance. In the past, this task was often handled with CD players, iTunes, iPods, or other apps designed for casual music listening. Most of these methods fall short when it comes to the demands of live theatrical shows.

Go Button eliminates a number of common technical problems such as:

  • Playing the wrong track at the wrong time.
  • Accidentally allowing the next track on a CD to start too soon.
  • Unwanted volume differences between tracks.
  • Awkward track endings when graceful fade outs are needed.

Go Button lets you build an intelligent playlist of Cues for each of your shows using your own audio tracks. You determine exactly how and when each Cue plays back. When it’s show time, all you have to think about is pressing Go.

Go Button can do things that other music players cannot, like play more than one sound cue at a time, fade in and out, loop, auto-stop, duck the volume of other sounds, and more. You can edit each Cue’s settings individually to get them all just right, like trimming out dead air or raising a single Cue’s volume so it matches all the others.

Instead of memorizing CD track numbers, you can give your Cues descriptive text titles that display right on your screen. When you use Go Button on an iPad, a large information panel also displays optional notes you can enter in each Cue. You can store and communicate so much information about your show that you (and your sound tech) can be sure of a flawless performance every time.

Whether you are graduating from a CD player or cutting the cord to go mobile, Go Button gives you simple yet powerful control over your sound cues.
