Working With Remote Controls
Using a wireless remote control gives you the freedom to run sound for your own show right from your pocket.
Go Button supports iOS native remote controls, including Bluetooth remotes that support the Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP). We make every effort to support all remotes that adhere to Apple's standards, but it is nearly impossible to guarantee compatibility with every single remote available.
A useful, simple test to determine if a particular remote will work with Go Button is to try using it with the iOS Music app. If Music responds to your remote, then Go Button should respond to it as well.
You can customize Go Button's responses to your remote, but the default behavior is as follows:
|iOS remote command||Default Go Button action|
|Next Track||Select Next Cue|
|Previous Track||Select Previous Cue|
|Volume Up/Down||Device Volume Up/Down|
If no Cue is selected, then Play/Pause, Play, Next Track, and Previous Track all select Cue 1.
Go Button can also be triggered using external Bluetooth keyboards (including accessories that behave like external keyboards, such as the AirTurn "Digit" line of remotes or BT-106 pedals).
|Go Button action||Default keyboard shortcuts|
|GO||Spacebar, Return / Enter, Arrow Right|
|Select Next Cue||Tab, Arrow Down|
|Select Previous Cue||Delete/Backspace, Arrow Up|
|Pause/Resume Show||Arrow Left|
|Panic All Cues||` (backtick, typically the key below Esc)|
|Panic All Hits||~ (tilde, typically ⇧ + the key below Esc)|
|Play Hits 1-8||Number Keys 1-8|
|Stop Hits 1-8||⇧ + Number Keys 1-8|
|Change Current Hits Page||-/_ (prev page), =/+ (next page)|
To accommodate the different behaviors of each remote control, the Sidebar has a Configure Remote Control section to help you discover what commands your remote is sending and to customize what actions are triggered by your remote.
- Tap the icon in the upper-left corner of the Home screen to reveal the Sidebar.
- Tap Configure Remote Control.
- Press a button on your remote control or press a key on your keyboard to highlight the matching remote command.
- Tap on that remote command to open the menu of available Go Button actions.
- Select an action to associate with that remote command.
Tap Reset Remote to Defaults to reset only the iOS Remote command mappings. Tap Reset Keyboard to Defaults to reset only the external keyboard key mappings.
The available actions which can be assigned to a remote control button are:
- Select Next Cue
- Select Previous Cue
- Pause/Resume Show
- Panic Show - (Resets entire show: stops all cues, stops all hits, and resets the show timer)
- Panic All Cues - (Stops all cues only)
- Play/Pause Selected Cues
- Pause Selected Cue
- Unpause Selected Cue
- 'Oops' - Reset to Last Cue Played
- Toggle Master Volume Dimmed
- Toggle Master Volume Muted
- Step Up Master Volume
- Step Down Master Volume
- Panic All Hits - (Stops all hits only)
- Play Hit (1 through 8)
- Stop Hit (1 through 8)
- Previous Hits Page
- Next Hits Page
Some remote controls have more buttons than you need or have buttons that you may want to want to disable in case you press them accidentally.
In this case, you can effectively disable a button by simply telling Go Button not to do anything when that button is pressed.
- Follow steps 1-4 above.
- Scroll to the bottom of the list of actions, and select - no action -.
