Show Control only version, please?

In a world of increasingly buggy and poorly designed software, the QLab developers continue to succeed in delivering a quality product that is truly useful and versatile. Due to space limitations, for most performances our theater uses pre-recorded tracks rather than live musicians. QLab provides so much flexibility with its cues that I am able to fit the music to the performers rather than the other way around. As an added bonus, the MIDI and network cues allow us to control all of the mics and lighting, precisely synchronized with the music. The mobile version lets me edit and fire cues while sitting out in the audience area, which is a big benefit to me given that our tech booth is awkwardly positioned outside the sound pattern of the main speakers.

My big wish list item for the iOS app is a separate in-app purchase for an “operator-only” version that can be used to fire cues but not to make edits. It would be extremely useful for me to give a stage manager the ability to fire, stop, and restart cues during rehearsals without the risk of someone inadvertently changing the show design. It would also be nice if this could be provided at a lower price point than the Show Control and Editing option given the reduced functionality. I’m sure this option would spur a lot more app purchases since a typical theater may have only one or two show designers while using different stage managers and production team members for each show.

Surprised this isn’t more popular

I work In a theater where we run lots of dance recitals and competitions and being able to hand the client an iPad with all their music for rehearsal and performances bypasses the necessity for telex communicators as they can choose their own start and stop. Clients love it and it makes my job practically set up only.
11/10 love it. A little pricey but for our application very worth it. Couldn’t get the theater to cover it but even out of pocket I’d buy it again hands down

Powerful Tools

It’s Figure53... so no big surprise this app is powerful, feature rich yet easy to use.

The ability to connect in so many ways WiFi, USB, Ethernet, IP address, this allows the user to make their best choice for their needs.

Favorite tools

Video mapping-
This feature alone is worth 5x the app price. Nothing like standing in the audience during tech and adjusting the projector screen where I can clearly see everything. Without fail the theater staff’s jaws hit the ground every time I pull that trick on my phone :)

Really underused but powerful and flexible. Great for giving a stage staff limited control with one touch commands.

Great for controlling lights yes, but where it really shines is when you need to diagnose a lighting / DMX issue fast.

Get the QLab app and level up your game :D
