sound cues in theatrical
productions a snap. With a mix of sound, fade, stop, pause, and resume
cues, users can create elegant sound cues out of a few basic elements,
and execute them simply with the push of a button.
Automatically generated index values keep track of your cues internally, but the name
field in the editor allows you to assign your own names to keep track.
Cues may be set to auto follow into the next cue, and an interval of
seconds to wait before playing the cue may be specified to help with
precision timing of auto-follow sequences. Soundboard will calculate
the duration of any media files selected for you, but you can easily
edit the duration for fade sequences right in the cue table. Sound
files may be easily added using a built in file browser, and targets
for other cue types are assigned simply by typing the index number into
the target column. Finally, adding notes to a cue, or adjusting the
playback volume, is a simple matter of selecting the appropriate
controller and editing as desired.

XML, so it is maximally portable to any operating system capable of
