Great app, if it worked correctly
by Sad and True on 2020/03/06 04:19
The features of the app are great, the problem I cannot get downloaded songs out the library onto the app. The iPad gives an error every time. Oh and I emailed the address for help and got crickets, no response. For a $15 app, a waste of $$.
Not enough features for $15
by loudlael on 2020/02/16 17:21
Thought I was getting an all in one cue app but you can’t trim or change start time of clip. Not a lot of features and the user interface isn’t that intuitive for me. Also glitchy import system and doesn’t support imports from many other apps. Not worth $15. Better just to play straight from drop box.
Useless app! Waste of money
by WarLord87 on 2019/08/11 02:23
Won’t import from drop box, iCloud, etc. can’t play Soundtracks from Apple Music. Wasted $15
Perfect for one man show!
by MAGICRYANNH on 2019/05/30 00:44
I am a kid show magician and this app is great. Was using a playlist before. This app allows for more flexibility. Love the fade out feature and ability to have it automatically go to the next song. Thanks for a high functioning fair priced app!
Decent app
by Nomad1963 on 2019/05/23 06:29
I recently purchased this app for live playback performance. I’ve been testing it out, and so far, it seems to be exactly what I need. Could I please make a couple of suggestions: 1. Currently the tracks screen holds 25 files. The ability to enlarge the tracks button size, even though it would reduce the number of tracks per page, would be very helpful…especially for those of us who are a little older and don’t see as well. 2. I love the track volume adjust feature, but it would be much more useful if the volume slider came with a numeric value (I.e. 1 - 10). 3. A master left and right panning slider, as well as a mono button, would also be very, very helpful. Thank You!
Fail
by ironcobra62 on 2019/03/24 20:53
Whenever I try to import from Dropbox the link is created. However at least 75 percent of the time it will not show up in the sound cloud library. Very frustrating and mostly useless to me.
LOL !
by bozzo, on 2018/12/11 04:58
Very basic . iTune can do the same ! Just wasted my money .
Great app! Would like a few changes....
by RumbleMaker on 2018/12/01 12:53
This app does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Has never crashed or glitched. As a drummer, it’s great to have my band’s backing tracks at my fingertips on my iPad. A few additions would be awesome: 1). A red “STOP CUE” bar along the bottom of the screen that would stop playback of any track. This would be helpful instead of trying to accurately hit the small stop button at the top of the screen. 2). During playback, when the playing track button is hit a second time have it stop playback instead of automatically restarting it. Furthermore, it may be helpful to put all controls at the bottom of the screen. I am hoping you guys can incorporate these ideas. Thanks!
Does Exactly What I Needed
by The Virtual Keyboardist on 2018/07/18 13:48
The newest updates make this app perfect for my needs. This app is intended to play tracks not edit tracks, and that is fine because I would prefer to edit tracks in other apps/programs anyway. What this app does is make it very easy to upload audio files from iTunes, Dropbox and more and put them in the order you want them quickly. It allows volume control per track which is a nice touch. A feature that makes this a winner for me is the fade button. Hit fade and the audio file fades perfectly and automatically. This is a big feature for me. One request to the developer - it would be wonderful to be able to drop markers within each track. That way if a track is for a medley, we can mark the start point of each song within the medley and be able to select the marker to start the track at whichever point we want.
We use this for United States Air Force functions all of the time!
by Base Jase on 2018/06/30 22:15
I am a professional Audio Engineer, I own a recording studio. In the day time I work as a DOD contractor for the USAF. We have used this as a replacement for our CD players for over 5 years. Every time it’s been flawless. We cue ceremonial music, background music, and anything that we need for different ceremonies. I recently showed this to the White House communications staff, when they brought out their Instant Replay for a Mike Pence visit. They were very impressed with the ease of use. We pair these with a focusrite iPad dock to give a professional output for the ipad sound. Nothing but rave reviews for this program. In addition we have saved a lot of tax payer money by using these instead of 2500.00 a piece for an instant replay. iPad+SoundCue+Doc= $600. Big savings.
Merges audio channels 😏 My bad!
by okie51 on 2018/05/05 13:56
Update- Ipad setting was defaulted to mono. Works great once ipad was set up properly. Thank you Paul! Still hoping to see a L/R fader control in a future update.
Does literally nothing
by Twiteratti on 2018/03/23 21:33
I was able to load songs into the app, but could get it to do anything else. That was an unfortunate waste of $15.
This thing does not work with Dropbox. Only the iTunes Store.
by Taokab on 2018/01/01 19:47
Pitiful you might as well just use iTunes and be done with it
Good app
by PhilFlorida on 2017/12/15 23:40
This is a very practical app for running back up and click tracks. It is NOT any good for editing tracks. Your apps have to be ready for use - pre-prepared exactly as you want them. Two short comings; there’s no way to increase font size on the buttons. It’s so small it’s hard to read. Also, it does not auto-change to the next page when the last track on a page has played which is a real pain if the next cue comes real fast. It could also do with a facility to trim down the end of a track as sometimes tracks have a few seconds of audio trail left on them before they finish.
No different than a playlist
by El Dickbo on 2017/10/25 23:17
The whole point of having a cue cart app is to let you set up tracks to play at the touch of a button -- at a pre-designated point in the song. Otherwise, you're basically just clicking songs in a playlist. For $15!! this app should do it all. If it were free, I'd give it four stars -- but for $15, it is very disappointing.
Music manager
by Pastor SG on 2017/09/05 21:13
I announce football and basketball games for a local high school. Used click effect for years great program. Wanted something more portable to carry and plug in. This app is amazing! Easy to use and imports my songs easily and simple fader!
High hopes
by lion4irons2 on 2017/04/30 20:47
I am running a musical at my middle school and needed some software to aid in the playback of the backing tracks. I really needed an app that could cut and loop tracks. Nothing in the description said it couldn't do this. At the price point I thought I might as well give it a try. I cannot use this app without the ability to trim and loop my tracks. If your tracks are already set up this is a fine app, albeit very simple and you could do similar things with and iCloud playlist.
So Close
by thomas13103 on 2017/03/09 10:46
I sing about 70 concerts per year. I play all of my tracks from the stage. This app is easy to use and the best one available. The developer is easy to work with and keeps improving the app, but now it's so good there isn't anything left to improve.
Well Worth It
by Vitco Music on 2017/02/18 18:04
This is the perfect solution for playing live gigs. Much better than the Apple Music app. Highly recommended.
Outstanding
by JB3532578932hjkfd on 2017/02/06 06:44
This app was worth every penny and is better than anything else we found available. We used it for a 5th grade public school theater musical production. Very robust, consistent and easy to use.
Not too shabby
by Jacob the Audio Guy on 2016/09/04 20:49
Over all, I like the app. I have had a couple of issues of it crashing, but nothing too bad. I have two big issues. 1. When re-ordering the sounds, I would prefer the q's to not try to re-order themselves while I'm moving a q. 2. I want it to be expandable. I should be able to add more pages of effects. That's my 2 cents.
Difficult to put tracks in order
by Ising2Jesus on 2016/05/23 11:33
Drag and drop is fine if you are always putting your tracks in reverse order and always place them in the first cue position. Otherwise, all the other tracks move and makes placing them in order aggravating! We have to reorder our songs every time we sing at different places, and the difficulty we are having with this program is forcing us to buy another program.
Way too unstable for live playback
by fubs2000 on 2016/02/24 03:51
This app is not suitable for live playback. It crashes very often and it will chop up the first second or two of your track if it sits unattended for a little while. Save your money. Buy something more stable.
Great!
by asw333 on 2016/02/18 12:27
I love this app and use it every Sunday in our worship service. My only recommendation would be a cross fade option from one track to another.
Great app but locks up after screen sleep
by Great but has a bug on 2016/02/14 16:46
I love the app but when the screen goes to sleep or if i turn off the screen - the app locks up and crashes. Only want to get it back is to cycle through the screen again and hit the home button.
No way to organize in groups
by Drum Chicago on 2016/02/05 04:24
Can't seem to find a way to put samples into groups. Each page should have a title so you don't have to memorize 125 locations
Pretty good
by BStone5 on 2016/01/30 01:51
I like the product but would love to be able to save individual Volume levels. It's annoying to open it back up for the next concert and having to reset it all.
Overall great
by mavericksound on 2015/12/05 23:32
Would love to have the option of multiple sound cues to play such as a sound effect during a song.
It Just Works
by CurbsideColumn on 2015/11/13 06:26
I do a fair number of theater performances as the “sound guy” and other events where I simply have to either drop a sound effect or an entire song or things like this. This program is far, far less expensive than a professional board for doing this but does the same thing and is far easier to use. Stable, easy to use and does what it says. That’s five stars in my book!
Great App for playback!
by stickmanly on 2015/11/11 15:40
It's very reliable and easy to use. It makes traveling and performing a breeze (I have it installed on two iPads and an iPhone).
Waste of Money
by Beneguy on 2015/09/27 22:04
I was researching apps and from what I saw on YouTube this app looked like it would do what I needed. I am a brand trainer and run trainings almost weekly across the state. I needed something to cue music for activities... This is not that app. Yes it will play a song but you have no control over order of cues. If you want to play another song afterwards you have to go in and tell it too but there is no way to control when the song starts or stops and there is no cross fade. Save your money and use iTunes it's free and looks so much better. How can I get my money back? I've already removed the app, it is not worth the space.
Still having issues assigning
by KilerB on 2015/09/24 23:26
Finally! Seems to be working perfectly so far! The only other thing I would add to this is letting you start the song at any point you want. Being able to start the song during the chorus is perfect for my use. I haven't examined this version that closely, so maybe it is possible now… If not, that would be awesome! Your email address was down last time I tried to contact you by the way.
Great App!!
by Andy-Roo22 on 2015/09/15 15:21
This App is just what the Dr. ordered for live performances! All features are useful and easily understood. I have corresponded with the developer and he is very helpful and open to feature suggestions. I gave the App 4 stars, but if and once there is the ability to have encores it would rate 5!!
What's up
by Lowbass64 on 2015/07/11 00:19
I got an ISO update and can't see songs to add I paid good money for this app now it's useless to me HELP
Something's wrong
by Bishop Tyson on 2015/07/08 21:24
Have used soundcue for awhile but since the latest iOS update I can't. It will no longer bring the library up just a small piece of the screen shows. Can you help, I paid good money for this app and liked it.
Bring back played songs
by Tkingsing on 2015/06/28 03:08
I love this app use it all the time but it was much better when it wound keep track of the songs you had sang will you please bring back this feature.
Sound technician
by Sound technician on 2014/12/28 19:44
I think the fadeing should be a little more independent so we can fade 10-20 seconds instead of five. Would that be possible to fix? Other than that it's a great app.
Awful update
by BCJ in SAC on 2014/12/13 21:26
I paid good money for this app and it used to work perfectly. In August it was updated and there have been complaints about the update — particularly the fact that already-played cues are no longer highlighted. Knowing that your customers are unhappy with the update; also knowing that we PAID for this app, why hasn’t this been fixed? Four months later and it’s still “broken”. Support your product and the customers that are paying you!
Easy to Use
by Deftway on 2014/11/06 18:15
I have not updated to the latest version. So this review is for the previous version. It works great and worth the price. It's easy to import custom files.
What the heck happened? I used to rate it 5 🌟
by dbullard on 2014/08/28 02:38
I like the previous version! I lost the ability to tell what I have played! Not a good update! Buttons need to be color coded and we need to have the option to have the buttons notify when they've been played! Please fix ASAP
Edit Options
by Mag reader! on 2014/08/18 16:23
It would be Great if you could Trim the in & out points. Other than that it would be 5 stars.
Great app needs a few updates
by richard verrett on 2014/07/29 20:44
It would be perfect if you could adjust the cue points on your tracks and save it. Right now you have to cue a track and then manually slide to the start point you want each time you play it.
Buy this!
by Todd Sun on 2014/07/13 04:50
The other reviewer who said this app has problems was right but is no longer. I had similar problems and after getting over being mad contacted the developer thru his website and he sent me version that fixes the problem I had and the problem the other reviewer also had. I am happy to say that the developer of this app cares about his app and the users of this app and has fixed the problem and made other improvements. It his app rocks and I will use it at many live events! I recommend buying this app
Needs improvement
by RJP1666 on 2014/06/16 20:29
When it works, it works well. The problem is that when you fill all 5 pages with tracks, it often has trouble loading. I've been stuck on several occasions having to cue my tracks though iTunes instead. Also, it would be helpful to allow for more pages, perhaps in groups so that you don't have to overstress the loading feature?
Awesome for singers, choir/music directors
by w777 on 2014/05/26 13:46
Hint: If you use iTunes Match, make sure to download the music first. Previous versions gave me a DRM messages on all our recordings that were in iTunes Match. I love the layout and the ability to set volume for individual songs. The ability to set 125 songs (5 pages x 25 songs) is very helpful. You can also navigate to another page while it's playing.
Sound Cue almost there
by Migene on 2014/05/09 05:06
The one feature this app needs is Bluetooth play out capability. Was told its in the works and an upgrade was coming within the month... about three on this ago! I agree with other suggestions posted here. Cross fade... Rearranging of songs instead of deleting and adding another. Almost but not quite!
Great, but crashes often
by JFK, NM on 2014/05/07 14:18
This would be 4 or 5 stars if the app was reliable. It often crashes on open and it will take two or three times to open. Really nerve racking before an event.
A little shaky to start
by theboreingone on 2014/03/17 18:54
Once the app is up and running, it works great. I have all my tracks loaded into the app, and they all work great. However, when launching the app, there appear to be a couple bugs that cause it to crash the first couple times - I think it's related to screen rotation, but unable to verify precisely.
Missing support for wireless speakers
by sunyjazz on 2014/02/05 17:15
A basic program, good for simple applications. However, it does not support wireless speakers, which rendered it useless for me in a particular theatrical application.
Music pastor and quartet singer
by Isingbcuz on 2014/01/21 04:21
Love this app. It's has performed like no other. Great job
App fails to upload at times
by Bigbo4man on 2013/11/04 18:10
Sometimes I get nervous before a show because I fear that the app won't open, so when it finally open I'm concern during the whole performance that I will shut down, please fix the bugs because I love this app and I want to be able to trust it.
Almost Perfect
by Dericddddd on 2013/10/06 19:50
This is an almost perfect playback system for live events, galas, corporate events, theater and dance. Almost. Here's what I wish it had; 1. Crossfade ability from one track to the next 2. Longer fade out times if wanted 3. I'd like the fade out button to glow a different color to confirm I've hit it, sometimes it doesn't register and I can't tell until the song still hasn't faded out. 4. the ability to rearrange the order of tracks in the same manner I can arrange apps on my ipad or iphone. The current set up if I want to insert a track in the middle I have to delete a bunch of songs and then re-insert them. But I do love it and I hope they will make a few tweaks to make this literally rock
Can't edit and save clip
by No edit & save on 2013/09/14 02:28
Won't edit and save clip. Don't waste your money
Almost there to being a perfect app
by xanadu1215 on 2013/08/23 13:54
This is a very good app and allows me to get my Magic show in sync with my music and sound cues. The developer is very responsive and friendly. It is a bit expensive, however don't let the price deter you from considering this. A few features which would bring this up to perfect are... Play through bluetooth. Name the page tabs Work with a remote The ability to touch and slides the cues around to different positions would be really nice. It appears that if you want to change the order of cues or add cues in the middle of a set, you have to go through deletes in the cue array and rebuild the array from the last delete. A real pain if you have 40 items and you need to insert near the beginning. Have the "last played" cue highlighted so you can see the next cue in line at a glance. An undo on the clear button would be very helpful.ugh he does have a nice pop up to help I have suggested to the developer on allowing two or more cues to run in parallel and that is being considered i believe. So, buy it, Love it and hopefully new features will be added to make this the perfect sound cue app.
Right on!
by Grevuelta on 2013/08/06 03:38
Anyone familiar with Replay 360 and don't want to spend the 3k to buy it? Then this is your ticket. Flawless playbacks, easy uploads, easy operation. Thank you developer! I really want to shake your hand, but instead my $15 is joyfully given to you. I play about 160 shows a year with every song having playbacks this has made my life soooooo much easier. Pro quality at a fraction of the cost.
Has Some Bugs and Missing Features
by carvin6 on 2013/06/28 12:44
Like some features of the the app but missing features like saving your pages of songs to a file to call up later much like a playlist, instead U have to re assign your songs again and again. Don't see any updates of bugs, has one where the app just shuts off and won't reload, it goes back to the icon. NOT A RELIABLE APP TO BE USING IN A LIVE PERFORMANCE! Overall not worth the money if it is not reliable, but it does function until you shut off your ipad.
*GREAT APP BUT PLEASE!!*
by JULIANWEBB on 2013/03/20 09:15
This could be the best app ever if it allowed the user to create CUSTOM BUTTON sizes and configurations. THANK YOU!!
Thoughtful design
by Glowstick10 on 2013/03/12 14:12
I use sound cue in a performing arts center. We produce many stage plays and other events that call for audio cue playback. This fits the bill. Anyone who has operated a 360, will fall in love with this.
Hits the spot
by Snowe567 on 2013/03/12 00:17
I also use it for my accompaniment tracks and it works great. I wish you could move the buttons around but other than that it works well.
Gospel Singer
by Vtownmom on 2013/03/04 22:09
I am a traveling gospel singer. I use this app to play my accompaniment tracks. I have just starting using it recently. It has performed flawlessly and I'm very happy with it.
Importing Files
by Watersflam on 2013/01/19 06:58
Looks great. I wish you could directly import files from Dropbox. It would be great to skip the step of connecting to computer. With this option you could record and sync samples on the go without connecting to a computer. Unless I'm missing something?
Awesome App!
by Tomballas7 on 2012/11/10 15:07
Lovin it! Would love to see simultaneous option for playback. Would be incredibly helpful for live theatre sound effects :)
Keep up the good work!
by hootie73 on 2012/10/31 05:09
Easy to set up and use on the fly. Would love to see button "color coding" options in a future update.
Locked up
by samjd2591 on 2012/10/23 20:30
I loved it until I was firing tracks at a wedding reception and it totally locked up. I restarted, nothing. Did a hard restart, no difference. I removed the application from my iPad and reinstalled and it worked for 6 songs and then froze up again. I'm using original iPad with versions 5.1.1 software. I've looked around to see if there are any bugs or fixes and haven't found anything to help. Glad I had my computer there for back up.
Good app
by D. Zenz on 2012/09/03 15:27
Two things I would find useful additions: 1) The ability to non-destructively adjust start/stop points for cues. 2) Link two or more cues so they will sequentially trigger each other. This would make it a five star app!
Love it.
by w3stdove on 2012/08/09 02:57
Really like the simplicity, interface and stability of this app. A few recommendations would be a left/right stereo control for drummers who are using a click on one of the stereo channels.
Love It
by CGracy on 2012/07/28 19:43
I use this for my theater company sound effects its awesome. The only one improvement I wish they could make is that once the sounds are loaded to buttons to be able to click and hold and move it to a different spot. It would make organizing much easier!
Great app!!!
by JT(PH) on 2012/07/26 17:34
Thumbs up to you guys. I really love this app, my only request for the next update is the ability to use AIRPLAY, so we can stream our mix WIRELESSLY to Apple TV, AirPort Express station, or any AirPlay-supported speaker dock, AV receiver, and stereo system. Thanks for the great app!
Great app...does what it says with EASE!
by SAudio on 2012/06/27 01:56
Paul (software author) is a 'live production' guy and understands what is needed in a live show situation. He has absolutely brought all of his user wants and wishes into this app. If there's something you'd like he hasn't thought of, he's open to listen!!
So hard to find!
by cbowlsby on 2012/05/19 23:10
Dropbox support is exactly what I was looking for!
Great app...a few things could make it better
by Edgersmythe on 2012/05/11 18:31
Overall, really good app for live application...back tracks, clicks, etc. Just needs to be able to work in portrait mode...also, needs a preference window that allows some customization (portrait, continuous play, loop, adjusting volume of individual tracks). These would be nice to name a few...$15 is a bit steep without offering customization features. Still, very user friendly for live use.
Great App.... Needs More
by EO Productions on 2012/05/03 17:19
This is a simple app that is really easy to use. I would easily recommend it to other professionals that are in search for a solid hotkey solution. I would however like to see some improvements that would take the App from great to awesome. 1. Color of button changes after file has been played. Also have the ability to clear them when needed. 2. Ability to title page names and color code. 3. Ability to drag buttons on a page. 4. Set cue points within the button. 5. Buttons also show artist and song duration. Good work guys! I am looking forward to the next update.
Great!
by Quartety on 2012/04/24 19:02
Would love to be able to adjust the volume of each track within the app and save the changes so that it doesn't have to be done manually every time. Great app tho, and worth every penny. Would be happy to pay for the upgrade I just mentioned.
Great app! Solved my problems!
by Dan Dunn on 2012/04/13 22:01
I am a professional entertainer and work huge corporate and charity events full time. We run soundtracks to go with my act on an iPad from off stage. This allows us to avoid turning over ques to techs at shows and thus avoid rehearsals and missed ques by techs who dont know my show. A comparable stand alone pro system "instant replay 360" is $3000. This works the same way and integrates seamlessly with iTunes. I downloaded three apps and this was the clear winner! The others crashed and lagged and were not intuitive. This one got it right! Buy it!
SoundCue
by ChrisMitchell92 on 2012/03/25 22:26
Not going to lie, i was expecting a lot more for $15. Maybe sometime in the future there can be a lot more functionality added to this. Being able to run songs after another without having to click the next one, maybe implementing an actual "Cue" System where there is a go button, and all you have to click is a go button to move foward and have fades built into it. Great start for this app, but for it to be worth the full $15, there needs to be more functionallity added to it.
Great app
by arose615 on 2012/02/11 01:53
I use this app for sound production for a local pro wrestling company. Not only am I able to make song to song seemless, it also gives the show a much smoother flow thus giving a better sense of professionalism. Major kudos to the developer. As one review said, if it had Dropbox support, this would elevate this to a whole new level. Soundcue is the absolute best way to go if you need live playback on the iPad.
Needs Dropbox support
by effluvium9 on 2011/12/05 04:38
Cool app! Would love to see Dropbox support as there's not a good way to get sound files into it without syncing to a Mac or PC. Would be cool to just have sound designers upload to Dropbox and its done! Thanks for a great app! We will be using it in our theater productions!! --Art House Productions Jersey City
Almost perfect
by SoundGuy123456 on 2011/09/14 19:54
First and foremost, this app is rock-solid. There are others out there that frequently crash and are “buggie”. Obviously unacceptable in a live sound environment. Although the app is easy to use, it does lack some important features that would justify 5 stars. Namely, it needs the ability to: set and save the volume level for each button, play multiple buttons at once and the ability to change the trigger function (play, loop or momentary). Hopefully, these will be incorporated in future releases and I’m sure it will receive many “perfect” ratings.
Pro app
by Cjtec P.R. on 2011/07/07 22:51
I'm a sound engineer that works at at a theatre. I use QLAB software on my mac book pro to run my cues. This app is the perfect alternative to do so on the ipad, really easy and stable. I intentionally have try to crash it and it hasn't. The only thing that I would suggest is an selectable feature to play two cues at the same time. Sometimes you need to blend the end of one cue with the start from the next cue for example. Thanks for this good product!
Audio Folks get this app!
by SSGrille on 2011/07/01 21:10
I do event support, you know the guy in the back of the ballroom running all the technology to make the PowerPoint slides work. I always get called on to make announcements and introductions and "Can you make that gong sound when I say this in my speech?" This app let's you do all that. It is an instant replay machine for your iPad, which you have with you all the time anyway, right? You can assign "most" of your iTunes library to any button on the interface, not all, the rights managed stuff from iTunes can't be linked, but don't blame the developer, blame iTunes, but being the audio geek I know you all are you know how to get around the DRM. Now getting your sound effects, voice overs, and music clips into this app could not be easier. You can add them to iTunes and sync them with your PC or MAC, use your Dropbox, or the latest, from email, which is super cool. I use Adobe Audition on my PC to create all my clips, and now I just email them to my iPad and tell them to "Open In..." and they are added to the apps folder for assignment. Way cool! Once I get the XLR connector to the iPad I should be able to use audio editing software and the mixing board to make the announcements on the fly, record, then assign to a pad. I like TwistedWave and hope that soon there will be an import feature using the "Copy Audio" function in that app, it would be the perfect pairing for us audio folks. I have tried repeatedly to try to get the app to crash, and have not been able to do it. It is one of my top five apps that I tell everyone about. I hope you have found this review helpful and download this app, it's great.
Great App
by gfmagic on 2011/05/13 00:20
Just wanted to say that I recently purchased the Instant Replay App for $10.00 and I was disappointed. I am an entertainer on cruise ships and this app is great for what I do. I love the app. My only recommendations for future updates would be the following: 1. Be able to label the pages. I have several shows and it would be nice to label the shows in the Page Button. 2. Have options for the fade button i.e. options of 1-10 seconds for a fade to take place. In other words songs fades out in 1 second or 5 seconds once the fade button is pressed. Just different options. 3. If you delete a song from the order, be able to drag the next song into it's place instead of having to re-assign the songs all over again. Example, you delete track 3 and instead of having to re-assign all the songs again into the next open space. 4. Small number in each of the buttons from left to right staring with number one. This way if you give a tech a cue sheet, you can simply tell them that when I say "XYZ statement or wording" hit button 1 or hit button 5. You get the idea. Keep it super user friendly. 5. It would be nice to have 10 pages. This way you could potentially have 200 songs pre-organized. 6. Last thing would be to be once you go to a playlist, to add a song and you go to the next button, you don't have to hit the playlist button and continue to scroll down to the songs you are looking for. The default always goes back to Songs, then I have to hit the playlist, find the playlist and then find the song. Once again user friendly. I think this a great applications and I have many entertainer friends that would love to have this app. Just need to make some basic changes and make it super simple for those of us that travel and entertain all over the world. I love the app so far and I hope you continue to improve it. If you do, I see some great potential with this app. I will be using it for some upcoming shows. As of right now, I give this app a great 4 thumbs up. Will give it 5 once some changes have been made for being more user friendly. I hope this helps. God Bless.
Does Exactly What I Needed
by The Virtual Keyboardist on 2018/07/18 13:48
The newest updates make this app perfect for my needs. This app is intended to play tracks not edit tracks, and that is fine because I would prefer to edit tracks in other apps/programs anyway. What this app does is make it very easy to upload audio files from iTunes, Dropbox and more and put them in the order you want them quickly. It allows volume control per track which is a nice touch. A feature that makes this a winner for me is the fade button. Hit fade and the audio file fades perfectly and automatically. This is a big feature for me. One request to the developer - it would be wonderful to be able to drop markers within each track. That way if a track is for a medley, we can mark the start point of each song within the medley and be able to select the marker to start the track at whichever point we want.
Great app! Would like a few changes....
by RumbleMaker on 2018/12/01 12:53
This app does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Has never crashed or glitched. As a drummer, it’s great to have my band’s backing tracks at my fingertips on my iPad. A few additions would be awesome: 1). A red “STOP CUE” bar along the bottom of the screen that would stop playback of any track. This would be helpful instead of trying to accurately hit the small stop button at the top of the screen. 2). During playback, when the playing track button is hit a second time have it stop playback instead of automatically restarting it. Furthermore, it may be helpful to put all controls at the bottom of the screen. I am hoping you guys can incorporate these ideas. Thanks!
Good app
by PhilFlorida on 2017/12/15 23:40
This is a very practical app for running back up and click tracks. It is NOT any good for editing tracks. Your apps have to be ready for use - pre-prepared exactly as you want them. Two short comings; there’s no way to increase font size on the buttons. It’s so small it’s hard to read. Also, it does not auto-change to the next page when the last track on a page has played which is a real pain if the next cue comes real fast. It could also do with a facility to trim down the end of a track as sometimes tracks have a few seconds of audio trail left on them before they finish.
Decent app
by Nomad1963 on 2019/05/23 06:29
I recently purchased this app for live playback performance. I’ve been testing it out, and so far, it seems to be exactly what I need. Could I please make a couple of suggestions: 1. Currently the tracks screen holds 25 files. The ability to enlarge the tracks button size, even though it would reduce the number of tracks per page, would be very helpful…especially for those of us who are a little older and don’t see as well. 2. I love the track volume adjust feature, but it would be much more useful if the volume slider came with a numeric value (I.e. 1 - 10). 3. A master left and right panning slider, as well as a mono button, would also be very, very helpful. Thank You!
High hopes
by lion4irons2 on 2017/04/30 20:47
I am running a musical at my middle school and needed some software to aid in the playback of the backing tracks. I really needed an app that could cut and loop tracks. Nothing in the description said it couldn't do this. At the price point I thought I might as well give it a try. I cannot use this app without the ability to trim and loop my tracks. If your tracks are already set up this is a fine app, albeit very simple and you could do similar things with and iCloud playlist.
So Close
by thomas13103 on 2017/03/09 10:46
I sing about 70 concerts per year. I play all of my tracks from the stage. This app is easy to use and the best one available. The developer is easy to work with and keeps improving the app, but now it's so good there isn't anything left to improve.
Perfect for one man show!
by MAGICRYANNH on 2019/05/30 00:44
I am a kid show magician and this app is great. Was using a playlist before. This app allows for more flexibility. Love the fade out feature and ability to have it automatically go to the next song. Thanks for a high functioning fair priced app!
Music manager
by Pastor SG on 2017/09/05 21:13
I announce football and basketball games for a local high school. Used click effect for years great program. Wanted something more portable to carry and plug in. This app is amazing! Easy to use and imports my songs easily and simple fader!
Outstanding
by JB3532578932hjkfd on 2017/02/06 06:44
This app was worth every penny and is better than anything else we found available. We used it for a 5th grade public school theater musical production. Very robust, consistent and easy to use.
Not enough features for $15
by loudlael on 2020/02/16 17:21
Thought I was getting an all in one cue app but you can’t trim or change start time of clip. Not a lot of features and the user interface isn’t that intuitive for me. Also glitchy import system and doesn’t support imports from many other apps. Not worth $15. Better just to play straight from drop box.
No different than a playlist
by El Dickbo on 2017/10/25 23:17
The whole point of having a cue cart app is to let you set up tracks to play at the touch of a button -- at a pre-designated point in the song. Otherwise, you're basically just clicking songs in a playlist. For $15!! this app should do it all. If it were free, I'd give it four stars -- but for $15, it is very disappointing.
Well Worth It
by Vitco Music on 2017/02/18 18:04
This is the perfect solution for playing live gigs. Much better than the Apple Music app. Highly recommended.
Merges audio channels 😏 My bad!
by okie51 on 2018/05/05 13:56
Update- Ipad setting was defaulted to mono. Works great once ipad was set up properly. Thank you Paul! Still hoping to see a L/R fader control in a future update.
Great app, if it worked correctly
by Sad and True on 2020/03/06 04:19
The features of the app are great, the problem I cannot get downloaded songs out the library onto the app. The iPad gives an error every time. Oh and I emailed the address for help and got crickets, no response. For a $15 app, a waste of $$.
Fail
by ironcobra62 on 2019/03/24 20:53
Whenever I try to import from Dropbox the link is created. However at least 75 percent of the time it will not show up in the sound cloud library. Very frustrating and mostly useless to me.
Does literally nothing
by Twiteratti on 2018/03/23 21:33
I was able to load songs into the app, but could get it to do anything else. That was an unfortunate waste of $15.
This thing does not work with Dropbox. Only the iTunes Store.
by Taokab on 2018/01/01 19:47
Pitiful you might as well just use iTunes and be done with it
Useless app! Waste of money
by WarLord87 on 2019/08/11 02:23
Won’t import from drop box, iCloud, etc. can’t play Soundtracks from Apple Music. Wasted $15
LOL !
by bozzo, on 2018/12/11 04:58
Very basic . iTune can do the same ! Just wasted my money .
Buy this!
by Todd Sun on 2014/07/13 04:50
The other reviewer who said this app has problems was right but is no longer. I had similar problems and after getting over being mad contacted the developer thru his website and he sent me version that fixes the problem I had and the problem the other reviewer also had. I am happy to say that the developer of this app cares about his app and the users of this app and has fixed the problem and made other improvements. It his app rocks and I will use it at many live events! I recommend buying this app

Great app! Solved my problems!
by Dan Dunn on 2012/04/13 22:01
I am a professional entertainer and work huge corporate and charity events full time. We run soundtracks to go with my act on an iPad from off stage. This allows us to avoid turning over ques to techs at shows and thus avoid rehearsals and missed ques by techs who dont know my show. A comparable stand alone pro system "instant replay 360" is $3000. This works the same way and integrates seamlessly with iTunes. I downloaded three apps and this was the clear winner! The others crashed and lagged and were not intuitive. This one got it right! Buy it!
Awful update
by BCJ in SAC on 2014/12/13 21:26
I paid good money for this app and it used to work perfectly. In August it was updated and there have been complaints about the update — particularly the fact that already-played cues are no longer highlighted. Knowing that your customers are unhappy with the update; also knowing that we PAID for this app, why hasn’t this been fixed? Four months later and it’s still “broken”. Support your product and the customers that are paying you!
Still having issues assigning
by KilerB on 2015/09/24 23:26
Finally! Seems to be working perfectly so far! The only other thing I would add to this is letting you start the song at any point you want. Being able to start the song during the chorus is perfect for my use. I haven't examined this version that closely, so maybe it is possible now… If not, that would be awesome! Your email address was down last time I tried to contact you by the way.

It Just Works
by CurbsideColumn on 2015/11/13 06:26
I do a fair number of theater performances as the “sound guy” and other events where I simply have to either drop a sound effect or an entire song or things like this. This program is far, far less expensive than a professional board for doing this but does the same thing and is far easier to use. Stable, easy to use and does what it says. That’s five stars in my book!
Has Some Bugs and Missing Features
by carvin6 on 2013/06/28 12:44
Like some features of the the app but missing features like saving your pages of songs to a file to call up later much like a playlist, instead U have to re assign your songs again and again. Don't see any updates of bugs, has one where the app just shuts off and won't reload, it goes back to the icon. NOT A RELIABLE APP TO BE USING IN A LIVE PERFORMANCE! Overall not worth the money if it is not reliable, but it does function until you shut off your ipad.
SoundCue
by ChrisMitchell92 on 2012/03/25 22:26
Not going to lie, i was expecting a lot more for $15. Maybe sometime in the future there can be a lot more functionality added to this. Being able to run songs after another without having to click the next one, maybe implementing an actual "Cue" System where there is a go button, and all you have to click is a go button to move foward and have fades built into it. Great start for this app, but for it to be worth the full $15, there needs to be more functionallity added to it.
Awesome for singers, choir/music directors
by w777 on 2014/05/26 13:46
Hint: If you use iTunes Match, make sure to download the music first. Previous versions gave me a DRM messages on all our recordings that were in iTunes Match. I love the layout and the ability to set volume for individual songs. The ability to set 125 songs (5 pages x 25 songs) is very helpful. You can also navigate to another page while it's playing.

Right on!
by Grevuelta on 2013/08/06 03:38
Anyone familiar with Replay 360 and don't want to spend the 3k to buy it? Then this is your ticket. Flawless playbacks, easy uploads, easy operation. Thank you developer! I really want to shake your hand, but instead my $15 is joyfully given to you. I play about 160 shows a year with every song having playbacks this has made my life soooooo much easier. Pro quality at a fraction of the cost.
Almost Perfect
by Dericddddd on 2013/10/06 19:50
This is an almost perfect playback system for live events, galas, corporate events, theater and dance. Almost. Here's what I wish it had; 1. Crossfade ability from one track to the next 2. Longer fade out times if wanted 3. I'd like the fade out button to glow a different color to confirm I've hit it, sometimes it doesn't register and I can't tell until the song still hasn't faded out. 4. the ability to rearrange the order of tracks in the same manner I can arrange apps on my ipad or iphone. The current set up if I want to insert a track in the middle I have to delete a bunch of songs and then re-insert them. But I do love it and I hope they will make a few tweaks to make this literally rock
Great app...a few things could make it better
by Edgersmythe on 2012/05/11 18:31
Overall, really good app for live application...back tracks, clicks, etc. Just needs to be able to work in portrait mode...also, needs a preference window that allows some customization (portrait, continuous play, loop, adjusting volume of individual tracks). These would be nice to name a few...$15 is a bit steep without offering customization features. Still, very user friendly for live use.
Difficult to put tracks in order
by Ising2Jesus on 2016/05/23 11:33
Drag and drop is fine if you are always putting your tracks in reverse order and always place them in the first cue position. Otherwise, all the other tracks move and makes placing them in order aggravating! We have to reorder our songs every time we sing at different places, and the difficulty we are having with this program is forcing us to buy another program.
Love It
by CGracy on 2012/07/28 19:43
I use this for my theater company sound effects its awesome. The only one improvement I wish they could make is that once the sounds are loaded to buttons to be able to click and hold and move it to a different spot. It would make organizing much easier!
Great!
by Quartety on 2012/04/24 19:02
Would love to be able to adjust the volume of each track within the app and save the changes so that it doesn't have to be done manually every time. Great app tho, and worth every penny. Would be happy to pay for the upgrade I just mentioned.
Needs improvement
by RJP1666 on 2014/06/16 20:29
When it works, it works well. The problem is that when you fill all 5 pages with tracks, it often has trouble loading. I've been stuck on several occasions having to cue my tracks though iTunes instead. Also, it would be helpful to allow for more pages, perhaps in groups so that you don't have to overstress the loading feature?
A little shaky to start
by theboreingone on 2014/03/17 18:54
Once the app is up and running, it works great. I have all my tracks loaded into the app, and they all work great. However, when launching the app, there appear to be a couple bugs that cause it to crash the first couple times - I think it's related to screen rotation, but unable to verify precisely.
Importing Files
by Watersflam on 2013/01/19 06:58
Looks great. I wish you could directly import files from Dropbox. It would be great to skip the step of connecting to computer. With this option you could record and sync samples on the go without connecting to a computer. Unless I'm missing something?
Not too shabby
by Jacob the Audio Guy on 2016/09/04 20:49
Over all, I like the app. I have had a couple of issues of it crashing, but nothing too bad. I have two big issues. 1. When re-ordering the sounds, I would prefer the q's to not try to re-order themselves while I'm moving a q. 2. I want it to be expandable. I should be able to add more pages of effects. That's my 2 cents.
App fails to upload at times
by Bigbo4man on 2013/11/04 18:10
Sometimes I get nervous before a show because I fear that the app won't open, so when it finally open I'm concern during the whole performance that I will shut down, please fix the bugs because I love this app and I want to be able to trust it.
Locked up
by samjd2591 on 2012/10/23 20:30
I loved it until I was firing tracks at a wedding reception and it totally locked up. I restarted, nothing. Did a hard restart, no difference. I removed the application from my iPad and reinstalled and it worked for 6 songs and then froze up again. I'm using original iPad with versions 5.1.1 software. I've looked around to see if there are any bugs or fixes and haven't found anything to help. Glad I had my computer there for back up.
Great app but locks up after screen sleep
by Great but has a bug on 2016/02/14 16:46
I love the app but when the screen goes to sleep or if i turn off the screen - the app locks up and crashes. Only want to get it back is to cycle through the screen again and hit the home button.
Great app...does what it says with EASE!
by SAudio on 2012/06/27 01:56
Paul (software author) is a 'live production' guy and understands what is needed in a live show situation. He has absolutely brought all of his user wants and wishes into this app. If there's something you'd like he hasn't thought of, he's open to listen!!
Great App!!
by Andy-Roo22 on 2015/09/15 15:21
This App is just what the Dr. ordered for live performances! All features are useful and easily understood. I have corresponded with the developer and he is very helpful and open to feature suggestions. I gave the App 4 stars, but if and once there is the ability to have encores it would rate 5!!
Bring back played songs
by Tkingsing on 2015/06/28 03:08
I love this app use it all the time but it was much better when it wound keep track of the songs you had sang will you please bring back this feature.
Pretty good
by BStone5 on 2016/01/30 01:51
I like the product but would love to be able to save individual Volume levels. It's annoying to open it back up for the next concert and having to reset it all.
Easy to Use
by Deftway on 2014/11/06 18:15
I have not updated to the latest version. So this review is for the previous version. It works great and worth the price. It's easy to import custom files.
Thoughtful design
by Glowstick10 on 2013/03/12 14:12
I use sound cue in a performing arts center. We produce many stage plays and other events that call for audio cue playback. This fits the bill. Anyone who has operated a 360, will fall in love with this.

The features of the app are great, the problem I cannot get downloaded songs out the library onto the app. The iPad gives an error every time. Oh and I emailed the address for help and got crickets, no response. For a $15 app, a waste of $$.
Not enough features for $15
by loudlael on 2020/02/16 17:21
Thought I was getting an all in one cue app but you can’t trim or change start time of clip. Not a lot of features and the user interface isn’t that intuitive for me. Also glitchy import system and doesn’t support imports from many other apps. Not worth $15. Better just to play straight from drop box.
Useless app! Waste of money
by WarLord87 on 2019/08/11 02:23
Won’t import from drop box, iCloud, etc. can’t play Soundtracks from Apple Music. Wasted $15
Perfect for one man show!
by MAGICRYANNH on 2019/05/30 00:44
I am a kid show magician and this app is great. Was using a playlist before. This app allows for more flexibility. Love the fade out feature and ability to have it automatically go to the next song. Thanks for a high functioning fair priced app!
Decent app
by Nomad1963 on 2019/05/23 06:29
I recently purchased this app for live playback performance. I’ve been testing it out, and so far, it seems to be exactly what I need. Could I please make a couple of suggestions: 1. Currently the tracks screen holds 25 files. The ability to enlarge the tracks button size, even though it would reduce the number of tracks per page, would be very helpful…especially for those of us who are a little older and don’t see as well. 2. I love the track volume adjust feature, but it would be much more useful if the volume slider came with a numeric value (I.e. 1 - 10). 3. A master left and right panning slider, as well as a mono button, would also be very, very helpful. Thank You!
Fail
by ironcobra62 on 2019/03/24 20:53
Whenever I try to import from Dropbox the link is created. However at least 75 percent of the time it will not show up in the sound cloud library. Very frustrating and mostly useless to me.
LOL !
by bozzo, on 2018/12/11 04:58
Very basic . iTune can do the same ! Just wasted my money .
Great app! Would like a few changes....
by RumbleMaker on 2018/12/01 12:53
This app does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Has never crashed or glitched. As a drummer, it’s great to have my band’s backing tracks at my fingertips on my iPad. A few additions would be awesome: 1). A red “STOP CUE” bar along the bottom of the screen that would stop playback of any track. This would be helpful instead of trying to accurately hit the small stop button at the top of the screen. 2). During playback, when the playing track button is hit a second time have it stop playback instead of automatically restarting it. Furthermore, it may be helpful to put all controls at the bottom of the screen. I am hoping you guys can incorporate these ideas. Thanks!
Does Exactly What I Needed
by The Virtual Keyboardist on 2018/07/18 13:48
The newest updates make this app perfect for my needs. This app is intended to play tracks not edit tracks, and that is fine because I would prefer to edit tracks in other apps/programs anyway. What this app does is make it very easy to upload audio files from iTunes, Dropbox and more and put them in the order you want them quickly. It allows volume control per track which is a nice touch. A feature that makes this a winner for me is the fade button. Hit fade and the audio file fades perfectly and automatically. This is a big feature for me. One request to the developer - it would be wonderful to be able to drop markers within each track. That way if a track is for a medley, we can mark the start point of each song within the medley and be able to select the marker to start the track at whichever point we want.
We use this for United States Air Force functions all of the time!
by Base Jase on 2018/06/30 22:15
I am a professional Audio Engineer, I own a recording studio. In the day time I work as a DOD contractor for the USAF. We have used this as a replacement for our CD players for over 5 years. Every time it’s been flawless. We cue ceremonial music, background music, and anything that we need for different ceremonies. I recently showed this to the White House communications staff, when they brought out their Instant Replay for a Mike Pence visit. They were very impressed with the ease of use. We pair these with a focusrite iPad dock to give a professional output for the ipad sound. Nothing but rave reviews for this program. In addition we have saved a lot of tax payer money by using these instead of 2500.00 a piece for an instant replay. iPad+SoundCue+Doc= $600. Big savings.
Merges audio channels 😏 My bad!
by okie51 on 2018/05/05 13:56
Update- Ipad setting was defaulted to mono. Works great once ipad was set up properly. Thank you Paul! Still hoping to see a L/R fader control in a future update.
Does literally nothing
by Twiteratti on 2018/03/23 21:33
I was able to load songs into the app, but could get it to do anything else. That was an unfortunate waste of $15.
This thing does not work with Dropbox. Only the iTunes Store.
by Taokab on 2018/01/01 19:47
Pitiful you might as well just use iTunes and be done with it
Good app
by PhilFlorida on 2017/12/15 23:40
This is a very practical app for running back up and click tracks. It is NOT any good for editing tracks. Your apps have to be ready for use - pre-prepared exactly as you want them. Two short comings; there’s no way to increase font size on the buttons. It’s so small it’s hard to read. Also, it does not auto-change to the next page when the last track on a page has played which is a real pain if the next cue comes real fast. It could also do with a facility to trim down the end of a track as sometimes tracks have a few seconds of audio trail left on them before they finish.
No different than a playlist
by El Dickbo on 2017/10/25 23:17
The whole point of having a cue cart app is to let you set up tracks to play at the touch of a button -- at a pre-designated point in the song. Otherwise, you're basically just clicking songs in a playlist. For $15!! this app should do it all. If it were free, I'd give it four stars -- but for $15, it is very disappointing.
Music manager
by Pastor SG on 2017/09/05 21:13
I announce football and basketball games for a local high school. Used click effect for years great program. Wanted something more portable to carry and plug in. This app is amazing! Easy to use and imports my songs easily and simple fader!
High hopes
by lion4irons2 on 2017/04/30 20:47
I am running a musical at my middle school and needed some software to aid in the playback of the backing tracks. I really needed an app that could cut and loop tracks. Nothing in the description said it couldn't do this. At the price point I thought I might as well give it a try. I cannot use this app without the ability to trim and loop my tracks. If your tracks are already set up this is a fine app, albeit very simple and you could do similar things with and iCloud playlist.
So Close
by thomas13103 on 2017/03/09 10:46
I sing about 70 concerts per year. I play all of my tracks from the stage. This app is easy to use and the best one available. The developer is easy to work with and keeps improving the app, but now it's so good there isn't anything left to improve.
Well Worth It
by Vitco Music on 2017/02/18 18:04
This is the perfect solution for playing live gigs. Much better than the Apple Music app. Highly recommended.
Outstanding
by JB3532578932hjkfd on 2017/02/06 06:44
This app was worth every penny and is better than anything else we found available. We used it for a 5th grade public school theater musical production. Very robust, consistent and easy to use.
Not too shabby
by Jacob the Audio Guy on 2016/09/04 20:49
Over all, I like the app. I have had a couple of issues of it crashing, but nothing too bad. I have two big issues. 1. When re-ordering the sounds, I would prefer the q's to not try to re-order themselves while I'm moving a q. 2. I want it to be expandable. I should be able to add more pages of effects. That's my 2 cents.
Difficult to put tracks in order
by Ising2Jesus on 2016/05/23 11:33
Drag and drop is fine if you are always putting your tracks in reverse order and always place them in the first cue position. Otherwise, all the other tracks move and makes placing them in order aggravating! We have to reorder our songs every time we sing at different places, and the difficulty we are having with this program is forcing us to buy another program.
Way too unstable for live playback
by fubs2000 on 2016/02/24 03:51
This app is not suitable for live playback. It crashes very often and it will chop up the first second or two of your track if it sits unattended for a little while. Save your money. Buy something more stable.
Great!
by asw333 on 2016/02/18 12:27
I love this app and use it every Sunday in our worship service. My only recommendation would be a cross fade option from one track to another.
Great app but locks up after screen sleep
by Great but has a bug on 2016/02/14 16:46
I love the app but when the screen goes to sleep or if i turn off the screen - the app locks up and crashes. Only want to get it back is to cycle through the screen again and hit the home button.
No way to organize in groups
by Drum Chicago on 2016/02/05 04:24
Can't seem to find a way to put samples into groups. Each page should have a title so you don't have to memorize 125 locations
Pretty good
by BStone5 on 2016/01/30 01:51
I like the product but would love to be able to save individual Volume levels. It's annoying to open it back up for the next concert and having to reset it all.
Overall great
by mavericksound on 2015/12/05 23:32
Would love to have the option of multiple sound cues to play such as a sound effect during a song.
It Just Works
by CurbsideColumn on 2015/11/13 06:26
I do a fair number of theater performances as the “sound guy” and other events where I simply have to either drop a sound effect or an entire song or things like this. This program is far, far less expensive than a professional board for doing this but does the same thing and is far easier to use. Stable, easy to use and does what it says. That’s five stars in my book!
Great App for playback!
by stickmanly on 2015/11/11 15:40
It's very reliable and easy to use. It makes traveling and performing a breeze (I have it installed on two iPads and an iPhone).
Waste of Money
by Beneguy on 2015/09/27 22:04
I was researching apps and from what I saw on YouTube this app looked like it would do what I needed. I am a brand trainer and run trainings almost weekly across the state. I needed something to cue music for activities... This is not that app. Yes it will play a song but you have no control over order of cues. If you want to play another song afterwards you have to go in and tell it too but there is no way to control when the song starts or stops and there is no cross fade. Save your money and use iTunes it's free and looks so much better. How can I get my money back? I've already removed the app, it is not worth the space.
Still having issues assigning
by KilerB on 2015/09/24 23:26
Finally! Seems to be working perfectly so far! The only other thing I would add to this is letting you start the song at any point you want. Being able to start the song during the chorus is perfect for my use. I haven't examined this version that closely, so maybe it is possible now… If not, that would be awesome! Your email address was down last time I tried to contact you by the way.
Great App!!
by Andy-Roo22 on 2015/09/15 15:21
This App is just what the Dr. ordered for live performances! All features are useful and easily understood. I have corresponded with the developer and he is very helpful and open to feature suggestions. I gave the App 4 stars, but if and once there is the ability to have encores it would rate 5!!
What's up
by Lowbass64 on 2015/07/11 00:19
I got an ISO update and can't see songs to add I paid good money for this app now it's useless to me HELP
Something's wrong
by Bishop Tyson on 2015/07/08 21:24
Have used soundcue for awhile but since the latest iOS update I can't. It will no longer bring the library up just a small piece of the screen shows. Can you help, I paid good money for this app and liked it.
Bring back played songs
by Tkingsing on 2015/06/28 03:08
I love this app use it all the time but it was much better when it wound keep track of the songs you had sang will you please bring back this feature.
Sound technician
by Sound technician on 2014/12/28 19:44
I think the fadeing should be a little more independent so we can fade 10-20 seconds instead of five. Would that be possible to fix? Other than that it's a great app.
Awful update
by BCJ in SAC on 2014/12/13 21:26
I paid good money for this app and it used to work perfectly. In August it was updated and there have been complaints about the update — particularly the fact that already-played cues are no longer highlighted. Knowing that your customers are unhappy with the update; also knowing that we PAID for this app, why hasn’t this been fixed? Four months later and it’s still “broken”. Support your product and the customers that are paying you!
Easy to Use
by Deftway on 2014/11/06 18:15
I have not updated to the latest version. So this review is for the previous version. It works great and worth the price. It's easy to import custom files.
What the heck happened? I used to rate it 5 🌟
by dbullard on 2014/08/28 02:38
I like the previous version! I lost the ability to tell what I have played! Not a good update! Buttons need to be color coded and we need to have the option to have the buttons notify when they've been played! Please fix ASAP
Edit Options
by Mag reader! on 2014/08/18 16:23
It would be Great if you could Trim the in & out points. Other than that it would be 5 stars.
Great app needs a few updates
by richard verrett on 2014/07/29 20:44
It would be perfect if you could adjust the cue points on your tracks and save it. Right now you have to cue a track and then manually slide to the start point you want each time you play it.
Buy this!
by Todd Sun on 2014/07/13 04:50
The other reviewer who said this app has problems was right but is no longer. I had similar problems and after getting over being mad contacted the developer thru his website and he sent me version that fixes the problem I had and the problem the other reviewer also had. I am happy to say that the developer of this app cares about his app and the users of this app and has fixed the problem and made other improvements. It his app rocks and I will use it at many live events! I recommend buying this app
Needs improvement
by RJP1666 on 2014/06/16 20:29
When it works, it works well. The problem is that when you fill all 5 pages with tracks, it often has trouble loading. I've been stuck on several occasions having to cue my tracks though iTunes instead. Also, it would be helpful to allow for more pages, perhaps in groups so that you don't have to overstress the loading feature?
Awesome for singers, choir/music directors
by w777 on 2014/05/26 13:46
Hint: If you use iTunes Match, make sure to download the music first. Previous versions gave me a DRM messages on all our recordings that were in iTunes Match. I love the layout and the ability to set volume for individual songs. The ability to set 125 songs (5 pages x 25 songs) is very helpful. You can also navigate to another page while it's playing.
Sound Cue almost there
by Migene on 2014/05/09 05:06
The one feature this app needs is Bluetooth play out capability. Was told its in the works and an upgrade was coming within the month... about three on this ago! I agree with other suggestions posted here. Cross fade... Rearranging of songs instead of deleting and adding another. Almost but not quite!
Great, but crashes often
by JFK, NM on 2014/05/07 14:18
This would be 4 or 5 stars if the app was reliable. It often crashes on open and it will take two or three times to open. Really nerve racking before an event.
A little shaky to start
by theboreingone on 2014/03/17 18:54
Once the app is up and running, it works great. I have all my tracks loaded into the app, and they all work great. However, when launching the app, there appear to be a couple bugs that cause it to crash the first couple times - I think it's related to screen rotation, but unable to verify precisely.
Missing support for wireless speakers
by sunyjazz on 2014/02/05 17:15
A basic program, good for simple applications. However, it does not support wireless speakers, which rendered it useless for me in a particular theatrical application.
Music pastor and quartet singer
by Isingbcuz on 2014/01/21 04:21
Love this app. It's has performed like no other. Great job
App fails to upload at times
by Bigbo4man on 2013/11/04 18:10
Sometimes I get nervous before a show because I fear that the app won't open, so when it finally open I'm concern during the whole performance that I will shut down, please fix the bugs because I love this app and I want to be able to trust it.
Almost Perfect
by Dericddddd on 2013/10/06 19:50
This is an almost perfect playback system for live events, galas, corporate events, theater and dance. Almost. Here's what I wish it had; 1. Crossfade ability from one track to the next 2. Longer fade out times if wanted 3. I'd like the fade out button to glow a different color to confirm I've hit it, sometimes it doesn't register and I can't tell until the song still hasn't faded out. 4. the ability to rearrange the order of tracks in the same manner I can arrange apps on my ipad or iphone. The current set up if I want to insert a track in the middle I have to delete a bunch of songs and then re-insert them. But I do love it and I hope they will make a few tweaks to make this literally rock
Can't edit and save clip
by No edit & save on 2013/09/14 02:28
Won't edit and save clip. Don't waste your money
Almost there to being a perfect app
by xanadu1215 on 2013/08/23 13:54
This is a very good app and allows me to get my Magic show in sync with my music and sound cues. The developer is very responsive and friendly. It is a bit expensive, however don't let the price deter you from considering this. A few features which would bring this up to perfect are... Play through bluetooth. Name the page tabs Work with a remote The ability to touch and slides the cues around to different positions would be really nice. It appears that if you want to change the order of cues or add cues in the middle of a set, you have to go through deletes in the cue array and rebuild the array from the last delete. A real pain if you have 40 items and you need to insert near the beginning. Have the "last played" cue highlighted so you can see the next cue in line at a glance. An undo on the clear button would be very helpful.ugh he does have a nice pop up to help I have suggested to the developer on allowing two or more cues to run in parallel and that is being considered i believe. So, buy it, Love it and hopefully new features will be added to make this the perfect sound cue app.
Right on!
by Grevuelta on 2013/08/06 03:38
Anyone familiar with Replay 360 and don't want to spend the 3k to buy it? Then this is your ticket. Flawless playbacks, easy uploads, easy operation. Thank you developer! I really want to shake your hand, but instead my $15 is joyfully given to you. I play about 160 shows a year with every song having playbacks this has made my life soooooo much easier. Pro quality at a fraction of the cost.
Has Some Bugs and Missing Features
by carvin6 on 2013/06/28 12:44
Like some features of the the app but missing features like saving your pages of songs to a file to call up later much like a playlist, instead U have to re assign your songs again and again. Don't see any updates of bugs, has one where the app just shuts off and won't reload, it goes back to the icon. NOT A RELIABLE APP TO BE USING IN A LIVE PERFORMANCE! Overall not worth the money if it is not reliable, but it does function until you shut off your ipad.
*GREAT APP BUT PLEASE!!*
by JULIANWEBB on 2013/03/20 09:15
This could be the best app ever if it allowed the user to create CUSTOM BUTTON sizes and configurations. THANK YOU!!
Thoughtful design
by Glowstick10 on 2013/03/12 14:12
I use sound cue in a performing arts center. We produce many stage plays and other events that call for audio cue playback. This fits the bill. Anyone who has operated a 360, will fall in love with this.
Hits the spot
by Snowe567 on 2013/03/12 00:17
I also use it for my accompaniment tracks and it works great. I wish you could move the buttons around but other than that it works well.
Gospel Singer
by Vtownmom on 2013/03/04 22:09
I am a traveling gospel singer. I use this app to play my accompaniment tracks. I have just starting using it recently. It has performed flawlessly and I'm very happy with it.
Importing Files
by Watersflam on 2013/01/19 06:58
Looks great. I wish you could directly import files from Dropbox. It would be great to skip the step of connecting to computer. With this option you could record and sync samples on the go without connecting to a computer. Unless I'm missing something?
Awesome App!
by Tomballas7 on 2012/11/10 15:07
Lovin it! Would love to see simultaneous option for playback. Would be incredibly helpful for live theatre sound effects :)
Keep up the good work!
by hootie73 on 2012/10/31 05:09
Easy to set up and use on the fly. Would love to see button "color coding" options in a future update.
Locked up
by samjd2591 on 2012/10/23 20:30
I loved it until I was firing tracks at a wedding reception and it totally locked up. I restarted, nothing. Did a hard restart, no difference. I removed the application from my iPad and reinstalled and it worked for 6 songs and then froze up again. I'm using original iPad with versions 5.1.1 software. I've looked around to see if there are any bugs or fixes and haven't found anything to help. Glad I had my computer there for back up.
Good app
by D. Zenz on 2012/09/03 15:27
Two things I would find useful additions: 1) The ability to non-destructively adjust start/stop points for cues. 2) Link two or more cues so they will sequentially trigger each other. This would make it a five star app!
Love it.
by w3stdove on 2012/08/09 02:57
Really like the simplicity, interface and stability of this app. A few recommendations would be a left/right stereo control for drummers who are using a click on one of the stereo channels.
Love It
by CGracy on 2012/07/28 19:43
I use this for my theater company sound effects its awesome. The only one improvement I wish they could make is that once the sounds are loaded to buttons to be able to click and hold and move it to a different spot. It would make organizing much easier!
Great app!!!
by JT(PH) on 2012/07/26 17:34
Thumbs up to you guys. I really love this app, my only request for the next update is the ability to use AIRPLAY, so we can stream our mix WIRELESSLY to Apple TV, AirPort Express station, or any AirPlay-supported speaker dock, AV receiver, and stereo system. Thanks for the great app!
Great app...does what it says with EASE!
by SAudio on 2012/06/27 01:56
Paul (software author) is a 'live production' guy and understands what is needed in a live show situation. He has absolutely brought all of his user wants and wishes into this app. If there's something you'd like he hasn't thought of, he's open to listen!!
So hard to find!
by cbowlsby on 2012/05/19 23:10
Dropbox support is exactly what I was looking for!
Great app...a few things could make it better
by Edgersmythe on 2012/05/11 18:31
Overall, really good app for live application...back tracks, clicks, etc. Just needs to be able to work in portrait mode...also, needs a preference window that allows some customization (portrait, continuous play, loop, adjusting volume of individual tracks). These would be nice to name a few...$15 is a bit steep without offering customization features. Still, very user friendly for live use.
Great App.... Needs More
by EO Productions on 2012/05/03 17:19
This is a simple app that is really easy to use. I would easily recommend it to other professionals that are in search for a solid hotkey solution. I would however like to see some improvements that would take the App from great to awesome. 1. Color of button changes after file has been played. Also have the ability to clear them when needed. 2. Ability to title page names and color code. 3. Ability to drag buttons on a page. 4. Set cue points within the button. 5. Buttons also show artist and song duration. Good work guys! I am looking forward to the next update.
Great!
by Quartety on 2012/04/24 19:02
Would love to be able to adjust the volume of each track within the app and save the changes so that it doesn't have to be done manually every time. Great app tho, and worth every penny. Would be happy to pay for the upgrade I just mentioned.
Great app! Solved my problems!
by Dan Dunn on 2012/04/13 22:01
I am a professional entertainer and work huge corporate and charity events full time. We run soundtracks to go with my act on an iPad from off stage. This allows us to avoid turning over ques to techs at shows and thus avoid rehearsals and missed ques by techs who dont know my show. A comparable stand alone pro system "instant replay 360" is $3000. This works the same way and integrates seamlessly with iTunes. I downloaded three apps and this was the clear winner! The others crashed and lagged and were not intuitive. This one got it right! Buy it!
SoundCue
by ChrisMitchell92 on 2012/03/25 22:26
Not going to lie, i was expecting a lot more for $15. Maybe sometime in the future there can be a lot more functionality added to this. Being able to run songs after another without having to click the next one, maybe implementing an actual "Cue" System where there is a go button, and all you have to click is a go button to move foward and have fades built into it. Great start for this app, but for it to be worth the full $15, there needs to be more functionallity added to it.
Great app
by arose615 on 2012/02/11 01:53
I use this app for sound production for a local pro wrestling company. Not only am I able to make song to song seemless, it also gives the show a much smoother flow thus giving a better sense of professionalism. Major kudos to the developer. As one review said, if it had Dropbox support, this would elevate this to a whole new level. Soundcue is the absolute best way to go if you need live playback on the iPad.
Needs Dropbox support
by effluvium9 on 2011/12/05 04:38
Cool app! Would love to see Dropbox support as there's not a good way to get sound files into it without syncing to a Mac or PC. Would be cool to just have sound designers upload to Dropbox and its done! Thanks for a great app! We will be using it in our theater productions!! --Art House Productions Jersey City
Almost perfect
by SoundGuy123456 on 2011/09/14 19:54
First and foremost, this app is rock-solid. There are others out there that frequently crash and are “buggie”. Obviously unacceptable in a live sound environment. Although the app is easy to use, it does lack some important features that would justify 5 stars. Namely, it needs the ability to: set and save the volume level for each button, play multiple buttons at once and the ability to change the trigger function (play, loop or momentary). Hopefully, these will be incorporated in future releases and I’m sure it will receive many “perfect” ratings.
Pro app
by Cjtec P.R. on 2011/07/07 22:51
I'm a sound engineer that works at at a theatre. I use QLAB software on my mac book pro to run my cues. This app is the perfect alternative to do so on the ipad, really easy and stable. I intentionally have try to crash it and it hasn't. The only thing that I would suggest is an selectable feature to play two cues at the same time. Sometimes you need to blend the end of one cue with the start from the next cue for example. Thanks for this good product!
Audio Folks get this app!

I do event support, you know the guy in the back of the ballroom running all the technology to make the PowerPoint slides work. I always get called on to make announcements and introductions and "Can you make that gong sound when I say this in my speech?" This app let's you do all that. It is an instant replay machine for your iPad, which you have with you all the time anyway, right? You can assign "most" of your iTunes library to any button on the interface, not all, the rights managed stuff from iTunes can't be linked, but don't blame the developer, blame iTunes, but being the audio geek I know you all are you know how to get around the DRM. Now getting your sound effects, voice overs, and music clips into this app could not be easier. You can add them to iTunes and sync them with your PC or MAC, use your Dropbox, or the latest, from email, which is super cool. I use Adobe Audition on my PC to create all my clips, and now I just email them to my iPad and tell them to "Open In..." and they are added to the apps folder for assignment. Way cool! Once I get the XLR connector to the iPad I should be able to use audio editing software and the mixing board to make the announcements on the fly, record, then assign to a pad. I like TwistedWave and hope that soon there will be an import feature using the "Copy Audio" function in that app, it would be the perfect pairing for us audio folks. I have tried repeatedly to try to get the app to crash, and have not been able to do it. It is one of my top five apps that I tell everyone about. I hope you have found this review helpful and download this app, it's great.
Great App
by gfmagic on 2011/05/13 00:20
Just wanted to say that I recently purchased the Instant Replay App for $10.00 and I was disappointed. I am an entertainer on cruise ships and this app is great for what I do. I love the app. My only recommendations for future updates would be the following: 1. Be able to label the pages. I have several shows and it would be nice to label the shows in the Page Button. 2. Have options for the fade button i.e. options of 1-10 seconds for a fade to take place. In other words songs fades out in 1 second or 5 seconds once the fade button is pressed. Just different options. 3. If you delete a song from the order, be able to drag the next song into it's place instead of having to re-assign the songs all over again. Example, you delete track 3 and instead of having to re-assign all the songs again into the next open space. 4. Small number in each of the buttons from left to right staring with number one. This way if you give a tech a cue sheet, you can simply tell them that when I say "XYZ statement or wording" hit button 1 or hit button 5. You get the idea. Keep it super user friendly. 5. It would be nice to have 10 pages. This way you could potentially have 200 songs pre-organized. 6. Last thing would be to be once you go to a playlist, to add a song and you go to the next button, you don't have to hit the playlist button and continue to scroll down to the songs you are looking for. The default always goes back to Songs, then I have to hit the playlist, find the playlist and then find the song. Once again user friendly. I think this a great applications and I have many entertainer friends that would love to have this app. Just need to make some basic changes and make it super simple for those of us that travel and entertain all over the world. I love the app so far and I hope you continue to improve it. If you do, I see some great potential with this app. I will be using it for some upcoming shows. As of right now, I give this app a great 4 thumbs up. Will give it 5 once some changes have been made for being more user friendly. I hope this helps. God Bless.
Does Exactly What I Needed
by The Virtual Keyboardist on 2018/07/18 13:48
The newest updates make this app perfect for my needs. This app is intended to play tracks not edit tracks, and that is fine because I would prefer to edit tracks in other apps/programs anyway. What this app does is make it very easy to upload audio files from iTunes, Dropbox and more and put them in the order you want them quickly. It allows volume control per track which is a nice touch. A feature that makes this a winner for me is the fade button. Hit fade and the audio file fades perfectly and automatically. This is a big feature for me. One request to the developer - it would be wonderful to be able to drop markers within each track. That way if a track is for a medley, we can mark the start point of each song within the medley and be able to select the marker to start the track at whichever point we want.
Great app! Would like a few changes....
by RumbleMaker on 2018/12/01 12:53
This app does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Has never crashed or glitched. As a drummer, it’s great to have my band’s backing tracks at my fingertips on my iPad. A few additions would be awesome: 1). A red “STOP CUE” bar along the bottom of the screen that would stop playback of any track. This would be helpful instead of trying to accurately hit the small stop button at the top of the screen. 2). During playback, when the playing track button is hit a second time have it stop playback instead of automatically restarting it. Furthermore, it may be helpful to put all controls at the bottom of the screen. I am hoping you guys can incorporate these ideas. Thanks!
Good app
by PhilFlorida on 2017/12/15 23:40
This is a very practical app for running back up and click tracks. It is NOT any good for editing tracks. Your apps have to be ready for use - pre-prepared exactly as you want them. Two short comings; there’s no way to increase font size on the buttons. It’s so small it’s hard to read. Also, it does not auto-change to the next page when the last track on a page has played which is a real pain if the next cue comes real fast. It could also do with a facility to trim down the end of a track as sometimes tracks have a few seconds of audio trail left on them before they finish.
Decent app
by Nomad1963 on 2019/05/23 06:29
I recently purchased this app for live playback performance. I’ve been testing it out, and so far, it seems to be exactly what I need. Could I please make a couple of suggestions: 1. Currently the tracks screen holds 25 files. The ability to enlarge the tracks button size, even though it would reduce the number of tracks per page, would be very helpful…especially for those of us who are a little older and don’t see as well. 2. I love the track volume adjust feature, but it would be much more useful if the volume slider came with a numeric value (I.e. 1 - 10). 3. A master left and right panning slider, as well as a mono button, would also be very, very helpful. Thank You!
High hopes
by lion4irons2 on 2017/04/30 20:47
I am running a musical at my middle school and needed some software to aid in the playback of the backing tracks. I really needed an app that could cut and loop tracks. Nothing in the description said it couldn't do this. At the price point I thought I might as well give it a try. I cannot use this app without the ability to trim and loop my tracks. If your tracks are already set up this is a fine app, albeit very simple and you could do similar things with and iCloud playlist.
So Close
by thomas13103 on 2017/03/09 10:46
I sing about 70 concerts per year. I play all of my tracks from the stage. This app is easy to use and the best one available. The developer is easy to work with and keeps improving the app, but now it's so good there isn't anything left to improve.
Perfect for one man show!
by MAGICRYANNH on 2019/05/30 00:44
I am a kid show magician and this app is great. Was using a playlist before. This app allows for more flexibility. Love the fade out feature and ability to have it automatically go to the next song. Thanks for a high functioning fair priced app!
Music manager
by Pastor SG on 2017/09/05 21:13
I announce football and basketball games for a local high school. Used click effect for years great program. Wanted something more portable to carry and plug in. This app is amazing! Easy to use and imports my songs easily and simple fader!
Outstanding
by JB3532578932hjkfd on 2017/02/06 06:44
This app was worth every penny and is better than anything else we found available. We used it for a 5th grade public school theater musical production. Very robust, consistent and easy to use.
Not enough features for $15
by loudlael on 2020/02/16 17:21
Thought I was getting an all in one cue app but you can’t trim or change start time of clip. Not a lot of features and the user interface isn’t that intuitive for me. Also glitchy import system and doesn’t support imports from many other apps. Not worth $15. Better just to play straight from drop box.
No different than a playlist
by El Dickbo on 2017/10/25 23:17
The whole point of having a cue cart app is to let you set up tracks to play at the touch of a button -- at a pre-designated point in the song. Otherwise, you're basically just clicking songs in a playlist. For $15!! this app should do it all. If it were free, I'd give it four stars -- but for $15, it is very disappointing.
Well Worth It
by Vitco Music on 2017/02/18 18:04
This is the perfect solution for playing live gigs. Much better than the Apple Music app. Highly recommended.
Merges audio channels 😏 My bad!
by okie51 on 2018/05/05 13:56
Update- Ipad setting was defaulted to mono. Works great once ipad was set up properly. Thank you Paul! Still hoping to see a L/R fader control in a future update.
Great app, if it worked correctly
by Sad and True on 2020/03/06 04:19
The features of the app are great, the problem I cannot get downloaded songs out the library onto the app. The iPad gives an error every time. Oh and I emailed the address for help and got crickets, no response. For a $15 app, a waste of $$.
Fail
by ironcobra62 on 2019/03/24 20:53
Whenever I try to import from Dropbox the link is created. However at least 75 percent of the time it will not show up in the sound cloud library. Very frustrating and mostly useless to me.
Does literally nothing
by Twiteratti on 2018/03/23 21:33
I was able to load songs into the app, but could get it to do anything else. That was an unfortunate waste of $15.
This thing does not work with Dropbox. Only the iTunes Store.
by Taokab on 2018/01/01 19:47
Pitiful you might as well just use iTunes and be done with it
Useless app! Waste of money
by WarLord87 on 2019/08/11 02:23
Won’t import from drop box, iCloud, etc. can’t play Soundtracks from Apple Music. Wasted $15
LOL !
by bozzo, on 2018/12/11 04:58
Very basic . iTune can do the same ! Just wasted my money .
Buy this!
by Todd Sun on 2014/07/13 04:50
The other reviewer who said this app has problems was right but is no longer. I had similar problems and after getting over being mad contacted the developer thru his website and he sent me version that fixes the problem I had and the problem the other reviewer also had. I am happy to say that the developer of this app cares about his app and the users of this app and has fixed the problem and made other improvements. It his app rocks and I will use it at many live events! I recommend buying this app
Almost perfect
by SoundGuy123456 on 2011/09/14 19:54
First and foremost, this app is rock-solid. There are others out there that frequently crash and are “buggie”. Obviously unacceptable in a live sound environment. Although the app is easy to use, it does lack some important features that would justify 5 stars. Namely, it needs the ability to: set and save the volume level for each button, play multiple buttons at once and the ability to change the trigger function (play, loop or momentary). Hopefully, these will be incorporated in future releases and I’m sure it will receive many “perfect” ratings.
Great app! Solved my problems!
by Dan Dunn on 2012/04/13 22:01
I am a professional entertainer and work huge corporate and charity events full time. We run soundtracks to go with my act on an iPad from off stage. This allows us to avoid turning over ques to techs at shows and thus avoid rehearsals and missed ques by techs who dont know my show. A comparable stand alone pro system "instant replay 360" is $3000. This works the same way and integrates seamlessly with iTunes. I downloaded three apps and this was the clear winner! The others crashed and lagged and were not intuitive. This one got it right! Buy it!
Awful update
by BCJ in SAC on 2014/12/13 21:26
I paid good money for this app and it used to work perfectly. In August it was updated and there have been complaints about the update — particularly the fact that already-played cues are no longer highlighted. Knowing that your customers are unhappy with the update; also knowing that we PAID for this app, why hasn’t this been fixed? Four months later and it’s still “broken”. Support your product and the customers that are paying you!
Still having issues assigning
by KilerB on 2015/09/24 23:26
Finally! Seems to be working perfectly so far! The only other thing I would add to this is letting you start the song at any point you want. Being able to start the song during the chorus is perfect for my use. I haven't examined this version that closely, so maybe it is possible now… If not, that would be awesome! Your email address was down last time I tried to contact you by the way.
Pro app
by Cjtec P.R. on 2011/07/07 22:51
I'm a sound engineer that works at at a theatre. I use QLAB software on my mac book pro to run my cues. This app is the perfect alternative to do so on the ipad, really easy and stable. I intentionally have try to crash it and it hasn't. The only thing that I would suggest is an selectable feature to play two cues at the same time. Sometimes you need to blend the end of one cue with the start from the next cue for example. Thanks for this good product!
It Just Works
by CurbsideColumn on 2015/11/13 06:26
I do a fair number of theater performances as the “sound guy” and other events where I simply have to either drop a sound effect or an entire song or things like this. This program is far, far less expensive than a professional board for doing this but does the same thing and is far easier to use. Stable, easy to use and does what it says. That’s five stars in my book!
Has Some Bugs and Missing Features
by carvin6 on 2013/06/28 12:44
Like some features of the the app but missing features like saving your pages of songs to a file to call up later much like a playlist, instead U have to re assign your songs again and again. Don't see any updates of bugs, has one where the app just shuts off and won't reload, it goes back to the icon. NOT A RELIABLE APP TO BE USING IN A LIVE PERFORMANCE! Overall not worth the money if it is not reliable, but it does function until you shut off your ipad.
SoundCue
by ChrisMitchell92 on 2012/03/25 22:26
Not going to lie, i was expecting a lot more for $15. Maybe sometime in the future there can be a lot more functionality added to this. Being able to run songs after another without having to click the next one, maybe implementing an actual "Cue" System where there is a go button, and all you have to click is a go button to move foward and have fades built into it. Great start for this app, but for it to be worth the full $15, there needs to be more functionallity added to it.
Awesome for singers, choir/music directors
by w777 on 2014/05/26 13:46
Hint: If you use iTunes Match, make sure to download the music first. Previous versions gave me a DRM messages on all our recordings that were in iTunes Match. I love the layout and the ability to set volume for individual songs. The ability to set 125 songs (5 pages x 25 songs) is very helpful. You can also navigate to another page while it's playing.
Great app
by arose615 on 2012/02/11 01:53
I use this app for sound production for a local pro wrestling company. Not only am I able to make song to song seemless, it also gives the show a much smoother flow thus giving a better sense of professionalism. Major kudos to the developer. As one review said, if it had Dropbox support, this would elevate this to a whole new level. Soundcue is the absolute best way to go if you need live playback on the iPad.
Right on!
by Grevuelta on 2013/08/06 03:38
Anyone familiar with Replay 360 and don't want to spend the 3k to buy it? Then this is your ticket. Flawless playbacks, easy uploads, easy operation. Thank you developer! I really want to shake your hand, but instead my $15 is joyfully given to you. I play about 160 shows a year with every song having playbacks this has made my life soooooo much easier. Pro quality at a fraction of the cost.
Almost Perfect
by Dericddddd on 2013/10/06 19:50
This is an almost perfect playback system for live events, galas, corporate events, theater and dance. Almost. Here's what I wish it had; 1. Crossfade ability from one track to the next 2. Longer fade out times if wanted 3. I'd like the fade out button to glow a different color to confirm I've hit it, sometimes it doesn't register and I can't tell until the song still hasn't faded out. 4. the ability to rearrange the order of tracks in the same manner I can arrange apps on my ipad or iphone. The current set up if I want to insert a track in the middle I have to delete a bunch of songs and then re-insert them. But I do love it and I hope they will make a few tweaks to make this literally rock
Great app...a few things could make it better
by Edgersmythe on 2012/05/11 18:31
Overall, really good app for live application...back tracks, clicks, etc. Just needs to be able to work in portrait mode...also, needs a preference window that allows some customization (portrait, continuous play, loop, adjusting volume of individual tracks). These would be nice to name a few...$15 is a bit steep without offering customization features. Still, very user friendly for live use.
Difficult to put tracks in order
by Ising2Jesus on 2016/05/23 11:33
Drag and drop is fine if you are always putting your tracks in reverse order and always place them in the first cue position. Otherwise, all the other tracks move and makes placing them in order aggravating! We have to reorder our songs every time we sing at different places, and the difficulty we are having with this program is forcing us to buy another program.
Love It
by CGracy on 2012/07/28 19:43
I use this for my theater company sound effects its awesome. The only one improvement I wish they could make is that once the sounds are loaded to buttons to be able to click and hold and move it to a different spot. It would make organizing much easier!
Great!
by Quartety on 2012/04/24 19:02
Would love to be able to adjust the volume of each track within the app and save the changes so that it doesn't have to be done manually every time. Great app tho, and worth every penny. Would be happy to pay for the upgrade I just mentioned.
Needs improvement
by RJP1666 on 2014/06/16 20:29
When it works, it works well. The problem is that when you fill all 5 pages with tracks, it often has trouble loading. I've been stuck on several occasions having to cue my tracks though iTunes instead. Also, it would be helpful to allow for more pages, perhaps in groups so that you don't have to overstress the loading feature?
A little shaky to start
by theboreingone on 2014/03/17 18:54
Once the app is up and running, it works great. I have all my tracks loaded into the app, and they all work great. However, when launching the app, there appear to be a couple bugs that cause it to crash the first couple times - I think it's related to screen rotation, but unable to verify precisely.
Importing Files
by Watersflam on 2013/01/19 06:58
Looks great. I wish you could directly import files from Dropbox. It would be great to skip the step of connecting to computer. With this option you could record and sync samples on the go without connecting to a computer. Unless I'm missing something?
Not too shabby
by Jacob the Audio Guy on 2016/09/04 20:49
Over all, I like the app. I have had a couple of issues of it crashing, but nothing too bad. I have two big issues. 1. When re-ordering the sounds, I would prefer the q's to not try to re-order themselves while I'm moving a q. 2. I want it to be expandable. I should be able to add more pages of effects. That's my 2 cents.
App fails to upload at times
by Bigbo4man on 2013/11/04 18:10
Sometimes I get nervous before a show because I fear that the app won't open, so when it finally open I'm concern during the whole performance that I will shut down, please fix the bugs because I love this app and I want to be able to trust it.
Locked up
by samjd2591 on 2012/10/23 20:30
I loved it until I was firing tracks at a wedding reception and it totally locked up. I restarted, nothing. Did a hard restart, no difference. I removed the application from my iPad and reinstalled and it worked for 6 songs and then froze up again. I'm using original iPad with versions 5.1.1 software. I've looked around to see if there are any bugs or fixes and haven't found anything to help. Glad I had my computer there for back up.
Great app but locks up after screen sleep
by Great but has a bug on 2016/02/14 16:46
I love the app but when the screen goes to sleep or if i turn off the screen - the app locks up and crashes. Only want to get it back is to cycle through the screen again and hit the home button.
Great app...does what it says with EASE!
by SAudio on 2012/06/27 01:56
Paul (software author) is a 'live production' guy and understands what is needed in a live show situation. He has absolutely brought all of his user wants and wishes into this app. If there's something you'd like he hasn't thought of, he's open to listen!!
Great App!!
by Andy-Roo22 on 2015/09/15 15:21
This App is just what the Dr. ordered for live performances! All features are useful and easily understood. I have corresponded with the developer and he is very helpful and open to feature suggestions. I gave the App 4 stars, but if and once there is the ability to have encores it would rate 5!!
Bring back played songs
by Tkingsing on 2015/06/28 03:08
I love this app use it all the time but it was much better when it wound keep track of the songs you had sang will you please bring back this feature.
Pretty good
by BStone5 on 2016/01/30 01:51
I like the product but would love to be able to save individual Volume levels. It's annoying to open it back up for the next concert and having to reset it all.
Easy to Use
by Deftway on 2014/11/06 18:15
I have not updated to the latest version. So this review is for the previous version. It works great and worth the price. It's easy to import custom files.
Thoughtful design
by Glowstick10 on 2013/03/12 14:12
I use sound cue in a performing arts center. We produce many stage plays and other events that call for audio cue playback. This fits the bill. Anyone who has operated a 360, will fall in love with this.
