- App Store Info
DescriptionBackTrax is the easy, fool-proof way to run backing tracks on stage from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. If you've shared the frustration with the built-in Music app shared by thousands of other musicians out there, BackTrax is going to be a welcome relief!
* NOTE about DRM errors: Music that is synched via iTunes Match seems to pick up DRM that causes BackTrax to fail to play the track. There should be no problem with purchased or custom tracks that are synched directly to the device using iTunes on a computer, or purchased content that is directly downloaded to the device from the store.
* Background playback, so you can switch to a mixer app or guitar amp app while the backing track is playing.
* Auto-scrolling lyrics display. It's calibrated for the best possible fit with most songs, but more improvements are coming.
* (iPad) On-screen volume control and AirPlay support.
* Support for AirTurn BT-105, PageFlip Cicada and similar Bluetooth pedals that act as a keyboard.
* Displays lyrics stored in the mp3 files. (NOTE: Does not work with tracks synched via iTunes Match or Apple Music)
* Font size options for lyrics and song list.
* Displays song count and total running time for setlist
* Stops playback after every song automatically, or optionally continuously plays straight through your setlist.
* Single screen interface means no flipping between screens to start a new song.
* Dark color scheme minimizes the illumination it creates on stage, and it's less harsh to look at in the dark.
* You can manually select any song to play next without it automatically starting, even while there's another song still playing.
* There's no pause button, it's a stop button. That means you can preview a track, stop it, and know that it will still start at the beginning when you push play.
* It loads songs from your iTunes library, so you use the same convenient music sync feature you always have, no special file loading for BackTrax.
* Big, colorful Play/Stop/Next buttons at the bottom that are hard to miss, and it's hard to accidentally hit the wrong one.
* The song list displays the running time of each song.
* Total set time display.
* A progress bar and countdown timer let you know when the end of the currently playing song is coming.
* (Option) It can select the next song when the current one finishes and wait for you to hit the Play button before continuing.
* (Option) It can remove songs from the setlist after they're played, so you can work from a list of songs you haven't played yet.
HOW TO USE
1) Sync your backing tracks to your device using the normal iTunes music sync feature.
2) In BackTrax, hit the Load button (on iPad it's Load Songs or Load Playlist) to load the tracks from your iTunes library.
3) Select a song in the list by tapping it.
4) Tap the big green Play button and the selected song (highlighted in blue) will play.

What's New in Version 2.7.6- Fixed support for AirTurn BT-105 and similar pedals.
- Fixed what looked like failure of setlist saving under certain conditions. The problem was in the Load list, not in the saving, so apologies for any resurrected setlists.
- Now requires iOS 8; cleaned up some compatibility dependencies and deprecated code from older versions.
