Stage Traxx is a streamlined music player for the gigging musician. Don‘t fiddle with tiny user interfaces, don‘t worry about having to stop playback after each song or accidentally jump to another song.
Stage Traxx has a user interface that ensures that you don‘t need to worry about your playback. Once playback is running, all actions that might disturb playback are disabled.
During playback you can preselect the next song you want to play. Once the current song has finished, Stage Traxx will jump to your preselected song and wait for you to start the playback. You can mark songs as continuous. In that case playback will continue with the next selected song.
You can create playlists in Stage Traxx and add songs from your iTunes library. It will display embedded lyrics or comments with a large and easy to read font. An autoscrolling mode for the lyrics ensures that you don‘t need to interact with Stage Traxx during playback.
Enhance the hands free experience by connecting bluetooth pedals to your iPad. Stage Traxx detects bluetooth pedals and uses them to control playback and lyrics scrolling or the preselection of the next song to play.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a perfect, intuitive, and perfectly useful app. Nothing else comes even close as an accompaniment + lyrics combo. I can run a 3-hour gig and keep my lyrics, chords, notes, tracks, and more organized without a glitch. It's amazing how all those useful features are packed in such tight real estate, and it takes a little learning to discover all the features (different levels for each track. scrolling features, etc.), but they're *all* useful and clever.
The one thing I have asked about and am still waiting for is the "normal", black-on-white interface instead of the amateurish white-on-black, and I doo hope it's comeing VERY soon.
Not bad. But needs more features.
This is a fairly decent backing track player. But it would be nice if you could have a full screen without lyrics. Not all musicians who play with tracks need lyrics. It would also be nice if you could assign PDF sheet music to the tracks instead of lyrics. Also the ability to scrub through a song would be great. This app seems to be geared more towards the karaoke singer and not the professional musician.
Cannot add lyrics. Avoid
I purchased this app in order to play backing tracks I recorded at home in a pop duo. I was able to successfully import our live set from the music player.
It is not possible to add lyrics to the tunes however even though we have backups on Dropbox. The import function is broken.
They need to remove this functionality from the ads as it obviously does not work. Disappointed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
