Updates!

New features have been added to the app. If you were looking for lyrics feature it's now part of Backing Track Studio! Lyrics view is very clean, user friendly and you can customize many options such as auto-scroll speed, font size, delay before scroll and view mode.

Check out free version of Backing Track Studio - it allows you to try out all the features before buying.

Used the app this past weekend and it appears the new update solved the bugs also. The AirTurn worked perfectly for the 3 1/2 hour set, though I was exhausted. :lol: Switching between a solo .pdf playlist and the Backing Track Studio also went smoothly this time.

Looking forward to using this setup Friday and Saturday this week.

Hey, still on this subject, Live Backing Track: Multitrack has just been updated. It now supports MP3 on Android and loads super fast!

It solves all the backing track issues, and allows you to setup the tracks volumes and panning on the fly!

You could try BackTrack. Its a bit less 'fiddly' to use...

We're switching our live click tracks over from a laptop based system to tablets, and after checking out several other apps, Backing Track Studio seems to be the leader so far.

One issue is holding it back for us though.

How can you scroll back up the "setlist" remotely? We use a customized foot controller so the drummer can start, stop, select & skip and skip songs in prearranged setlists. Its basically a fancier version of traditional "Page Turner" pedals. It's a custom wireless bluetooth pedal that can be programmed to send a traditional keyboard commands to run whatever pc/tablet its connected too (eg: 4 foot buttons could be programmed as traditional keyboard keys, 1:Up Arrow, 2:Down Arrow, 3:Spacebar (typically start/stop) 4: Backspace (typically restart)... or whatever is needed for the software its talking to.

Connecting a keyboard to Backing Track Studio to see what was mapped where, it appears there is no way to go back up the list? You can play/stop and scroll down through the list with the arrows, but cant go back up. Could this be added?

I know he could reach over and press the tablet screen, but on hard count ins etc sweaty drummers hate to be fumbling with their sticks 2 seconds before the song starts, and if a wrong song click selected, a foot operated "stop" button is a life saver avoid mass confusion! :)

Really dig all the features you've got in there, very tidy work. Some additional mapping of functions for

Greenblob, currently if I need to go back up the list there is no way other than to tap on a song to highlight it or to go to the top and use the pedal to progress to the song. Most page turners are limited I think to two functions anyway.

But, like you, I have found this app to be particularly good for the gig. It's been a staple of my performances since it came out. And while you'd like to stick to the playlist order, that's not always the way ends up in the performance.

Hi everyone.
I am not shure if is allowed here to publish a post like this, so if not, I want to apologize to the administration team of this forum first.

I developed an app dedicated for gigging musitians to play with backing tracks live, as an ansver to very famous Apple solution, but on android platform.
(I and my friends musitians are using it in the giggs already with sucess so I decided to publish the app in a PlaySore)

The basic funtionality is:
- Autopause as default. (You can disable it for each song separately)
- Crete as many customs setlists as you want (even during your performance changes are allowed).
- Suport any audio format that supports your android device.
- Very quick media browser, sorted by folders, SD cart supported (included name filter).
- You can adjust the volume for each track separately.
- You can can assign multiple text changes inside the progress of your tracks, so no scrolling is needed.
- The player is "service based", so it never stops even if you accidentaly quit the aplication.
- The tho different layouts for portail and landscape. (changes during playback also allowed)

I would like if someone of gigging musitians will test it and post me an opinion to make it better.
If you are interesting, search for "StageBaxx" in PlayStore, and install a free demo.

Thank You very much.
