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.

Ratings and Reviews
I never write reviews for apps this is the first because this app is fantastic. We use this for our girls 14u travel team for softball the girls absolutely love being able to walk out to their favorite songs.
Umpires love the fact that they’re 10 second clips and they automatically shut off. Don’t hesitate worth every penny, and it’s super easy to set this up and make modifications on the fly.
One piece of advice completely independent of the app let the umpires know what you’re doing before the game and typically they’re fine with it.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for kind words and excellent advice regarding umpires! There was definitely some umpire feedback used for determining that default time for the walkout clips.
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 email@example.com if you want to participate in the beta.
3. This feature is also in beta right now.
Fantastic and Improved!
I contacted the developer last year regarding adding a feature to record the player names and #'s rather than having to use the digitized voices. I told him that the inability to record was keeping this from an excellent program. He came through! I really like the pregame, between inning and situational song categories. The app easily transitions between these categories and the lineup walkout songs and player announcements. Great job! Thank you for being so responsive and creating a very functional app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
