Excellent, Easy to Use, Very Efficient

Setup the program to run music for a local dance studio’s show after numerous mishaps with laptops / playlists / scratched CDs, etc. Very easy to setup, more features in the free version that we even need for this production. The studio is super excited to be able to run show audio without the issues of the past. I’ve considered purchasing the Pro version; but have no need for multiple saved shows at this point.

My only criticism is for the price saving multiple shows seems kind of steep. Maybe worth it if that also enabled some other feature like sending of OSC commands to external devices?

The only other thing I would like to see possibly in future versions is a non-music queue that can be used as a timer, ie for Intermission or something of the sort. I’ve come up with a workaround for it by creating a blank audio file and then setting a delay on it for the timer value desired.

Hi and thanks for the great feedback!

I'm happy to report that Go Button does allow you make "empty" cues that don't have an audio file. You tap "Add Cue" then tap "Add New" in the navbar of the Media Picker. You can also long-press on the media file of an existing cue and tap "Clear Media File". These cues can have durations and most of the other capabilities of audio cues, just without any audio. :)

I use go button extensively. However I have had a few instances where audio files will suddenly show up as missing. The iPad will run one show perfect, sit motionless and uninterrupted and then in the middle of the next show a few hours later the files are gone. This is obviously a major issue and one I’m not sure how to solve. I’ve learned to always have a computer running in tandem just in case the problem arises. Other than that complaint, and it is a big one, LOVE this app.

UPDATE: I discovered this is an issue with iCloud syncing music libraries and mysteriously deleting files. Changed my review to 5 stars, no problems!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback, and I'm really sorry you've been having trouble with your audio going missing!

If you are using tracks from the Music library on your iPad, we strongly recommend that you instead import your audio files into Go Button directly if at all possible. Then when you create your cues, select your audio from the "Documents" tab in the media picker. This way your files are kept safe and can't get lost.

You can read about various ways to import files here in the User Manual: https://figure53.com/docs/gobutton/v3/getting-started/working-with-audio/

The Music library is convenient, but unfortunately problems can sometimes happen because iTunes and the iOS Music app can change the library at any time without warning. It helps if you make sure your tracks all have unique Album, Artist, and Song names so that Go Button can find the new track if the unique ID does end up getting changed.

Please write us at support@figure53.com any time if you have more questions!

First use, in wonder

Our community theatre group has been using CDs for 16 years. Never again. The free version does everything we need and has features will may never use; it’s that good. I was very happy to use this app without much instruction or reference to the manual. The only aspect that doesn’t seem intuitive is how you load sound files for it to use. Once you cross that hurdle, adding them to your cue list and all the manipulations thereafter are so easy. Thanks to the developers!
