Music makes the ball field come to life but until now being the ballpark DJ wasn’t easy.
Walkout Song DJ is here to make it simple to have every field filled with that pump-up music every athlete loves and needs for those big games.
Walkout song DJ makes the difficult task of playing a walkout song for each individual batter as easy as tapping a button. Simply enter the player name and number then select a song from your iTunes library. The precise segment from that walkout song can then be set by selecting a position and playback duration using a simple and precise editing view. Press the play button and 11 seconds later you have one pumped-up batter, and a song that smoothly fades as the batter steps up to the plate. You can also choose between imported, recorded, or computerized text-to-speech announcements for your players before, after, or mixed with their walkout song.
The game doesn’t stop between innings so why should the music? Walkout Song DJ has a view dedicated to inning break songs. Just as before, select a song from your iTunes library and set a position and duration. Since inning breaks are usually two minutes long and most songs are over three minutes, Walkout Song DJ can automatically fade the song out before the start of play. That allows the human DJ to take a break or get a hot dog, and not have to worry about the music interrupting the game.
There is also one-touch access to a situational music view. These are the songs that add character to the game, such as your national anthem, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, Jeopardy Theme Song, your team fight song and anything else that fits!
For pre-game music, there is a pre-game view that allows you to select a group of songs from your library and arrange them in a simple playlist to play without interruption and help the athletes get “in the zone” during warm ups.
If you happen to be a dedicated ballpark DJ and have multiple teams to DJ, don’t sweat it. Walk-Out Song DJ makes it possible to create and save song pages for multiple teams.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the game while playing the all-important music by barely lifting a finger.
Please NOTE: The only subscription music source that will work with this app is Apple Music. The app is unable to access files from subscription sources like Spotify, Amazon Prime, Google Music, Tidal, or Napster because those services either have no third party offline playback interface or will not allow use of their interface with a third party commercial application. I have requested commercial approval from several of them and have had no response. The app will also work with standard music files either purchased from iTunes or imported to your device from email attachments or from cloud storage services.
- Work around new iOS 15 sensitivity to invalid file extensions on imported audio files that was generating errors for imported files that used to play fine on iOS 14 and lower

Best App for Walk-Up Songs
Hands down the best walk-up song app and worth the price!!
I hope the developer see this. First I want to say you are a genius to create this app and by continuing to make great enhancements. I love this app. I have no complaints at all but I would love a small enhancement to help my bad memory. For the inning break songs, is there a way to allow free text. I never can remember if the song is upbeat, downbeat, or if it is an offense or defense song. I like having the song name and artist but adding the additional free form text like the situational songs would be awesome! Please help me out with this!

The developer sees this 🙂 and I think that feature could be accommodated. I will put your request on the feature list for the next version.
So close to being perfect
Although it took me some time to get my music to work with the app (I finally just imported my songs), this app has been spot on for what our high school team needs. The only adjustments that I would LOVE to see are:
1: The ability to hand type the time edits in addition to using the +/- micro adjustments. It takes sooooo long when you’re scrolling through a song by the one-tenth of a second. A lot of the kids have told me where to start exactly in their walk up song, so having the ability to just type that in and then use the +/- for fine tuning; that would save so much time.
2: The ability to categorize pre-game music. We have pre game fan music, followed by home team warm up music for in and outs and then visiting team warm up music for in and outs. It would be nice to be able to have the songs separated into their own groups.
3: The ability to categorize situational sounds and songs. Sometimes we have multiple sounds that we use for foul balls, etc. This one would be a bonus....but isn’t necessarily a game changer. I’m sure with more practice, I’ll be able to find the sounds I’m looking for more quickly.
I’m really looking forward to continuing this season with this app it really does change the dynamic of the game. We can use Hammond organ sound bites to give us the pro experience. Fans love it. Coaches love it and the kids absolutely love it. Well done.

Thanks for the kind words and feedback!
1. Did you know you can drag the digits of the time values up or down for rapid selection?
2. This feature is in beta right now. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to participate in the beta.
3. This feature is also in beta right now.
So, I have used this app for quite a few years now. There has always been little issues here and there. But this season, it’s been absolutely AWFUL! No songs play, unless it decides it wants to. Only the player announcement will play. My girls look forward to being pumped up by their songs, and they get let down. I’ve uninstalled, deleted all line ups and started over, reset, EVERYTHING! Never an issue before, now I want to just delete it and never look back!!! I thought maybe it was my speaker (the one I’ve been using for years), so I bought a new one. Same issue! Okay, maybe it’s my phone. So bought and paid for it on my daughters phone. Guess what! SAME ISSUE! Okay cool. Maybe it’s because we have the same phone model. Used my husband’s, you guessed it……SAME ISSUE! Yes the songs are downloaded to my phone from Apple. It does not give me the warning when I play them. It just doesn’t flippin play. Fix this PLEASE! I want to use this for our girls. They love the walkup songs.

What you describe sounds like a Bluetooth problem. Does the issue occur if you play the songs through just your phone speaker? If it works correctly with the phone speaker, then I would recommend using a physical wire 'aux cable' between the phone and your speaker. Bluetooth was just not designed for audio switching or mixing and Apple has trashed that functionality over the years of 'upgrades' to Apple Music. If that is not the issue, then please contact me at email@example.com and let me help diagnose what else it could be.
