Sound Control System Designed By Professionals For Professionals

Show Cues for iPad runs all your show music from your iPad!

We also have a separate iPhone version of Show Cues available.


What’s the difference between Show Cues and other sound devices? About $1500! Show Cues doesn’t run lights, flash pots or make coffee. But, if you’re looking for something super-simple and sure-fire, this App really does the trick. In fact, you can bundle Show Cues with the purchase of a new iPad and it would still cost less than other sound devices on the market.

- Real-Time Clock

From MUM Magazine September 2012
Carl Andrews is not only a designer and programmer of iDevice apps, he is also a working professional magician. When his friend, Shawn Popp, suggested that he create an app to play music cues, he went at it with passion. The result is the most professional program I have ever seen called Show Cues. There are so many features to this app, I won’t have enough time to go through them all. Wonderfully written manual and a professional thought out program makes this a must for all performers. Even buying an iPad along with this program and remote will be cheaper than buying a machine that costs over $1000. The bonus: this does it easier!

Show Cues

Astounding app for most complete control of your sound. Well worth the cost. Regularly updated and improved. Ease of use and reliability are superb! Every performer could benefit from Show Cues!

Jason Michaels

Great app for entertainers, speakers, and presenters!

I've used this app for years and never had a single problem with it. It does exactly what I need it to do every single show. Outstanding!


5 star all the way

When I used music in my shows it was very limited. I had a simple iPod 3rd generation with a play list and written instructions for the sound guy to follow. Some times a sound guy would hit the mark, sometimes not.

I saw advertisements for Show Cues on Facebook. I decided to check it out.

I followed the instructions in the set up procedures along with minor help from Carl (as I am not that tech savvy) and got the set in order.

When I arrived to the show, I gave the iPad to the sound crew, I pointed out the stop and start buttons and what to look for in the show. The music ran perfectly! When the sound guy gave me back the iPad, he exclaimed to me that this was the best sound management tool he has ever used. He said the on screen instructions were very clear and self explanatory. He said running the music was "too easy".

So, THANK YOU, Carl, for building this app. I now need to get to know it with the ijet remote. But, without the remote and just handing the iPad to a stage sound tech, they will be amazed at how easy it is to run the music and follow the on screen cues for your show and will thank you afterwards for making their duties seem so effortless.

For them it was "plug and play". What could be simpler?
