QLab 4

Everything you need to put on a great show.

QLab® 4 combines powerful audio, video, and lighting control in one elegant package. With an all-new Light cue, a major upgrade to QLab Remote for iOS, and over 40 new features, this is the best version of QLab we’ve ever made.

Light Cues

We're happy to announce: QLab does lights now.

Whether you're a seasoned lighting professional or completely new to lights, we've worked hard to make designing your lights simple, powerful, and fun. Learn More →

Cue Cart

Cue Carts

You can now build cue carts and cue lists side-by-side, from a single button to a grid of 64. Any basic cue can be added to a cart, making it a friendly control surface for anything you can build in QLab. Learn More →

Record Cue Sequences

Record Cue Sequences

Teach QLab by example.

In QLab 4 you can run through your cues manually, and let QLab record the timing of the triggers. Learn More →

Fancy Paste

Like copy-and-paste, but way cooler.

Save hours of time with Fancy Paste! Selectively paste properties from one or more cues onto other cues in your workspace.

Additionally, you can now batch-edit the Basic, Trigger, and Light Level properties directly in the inspector.

Customize exactly how new cues are created.

Plus, the new ability to pick a default workspace template on launch means it's easy to jump straight into designing any new project.

New Trigger Options

In addition to QLab's traditional array of powerful cue triggers, QLab 4 offers the option to:

  • Fade and stop other cues when a cue starts. (You can set a customizable fade time, and choose whether this affects just the cue's peers, the cue list, or all other cues in every cue list.)
  • Duck or boost the volume of other cues while a cue is running.
  • Set “Second Trigger” actions, performed when a running cue is triggered a second time.
  • Perform “Trigger on Release” when releasing hotkeys, MIDI keys, or cue cart buttons.

New Workflow Tools

  • Import your Go Button shows into QLab.
  • Highlight “related” cues in the cue list (i.e. all cues related to the same target).
  • New negative post-wait times, to trigger the next cue “this many seconds before the current one ends”.
  • New red flash around the GO button if double-go protection is invoked.
  • New status window to show broken cues, warnings, Art-Net nodes, and logs for cue triggers, MIDI input, OSC input, & OSC replies.
  • New option to trigger a cue on workspace close, in addition to workspace open.
  • Enhanced input/output global overrides.
  • Up to 64 channels of audio output (up from 48).
  • New parametric fade curves, including support for equal power audio fades.
  • New editable durations for still image video cues and text cues.
  • New options to customize which workspace is opened on launch.
  • Fade your OSC messages over time, in 1D or 2D.
  • Inject live values from your workspace into outgoing OSC messages.
  • Customizable OSC reply format.
  • New OSC and AppleScript hooks all over the place.
