Each project consists of one or more cue-sheets, each of which contains buttons which may correspond to an audio, video or midi cue.
Projects can be designed to run either sequentially or non-sequentially making Trigger the ideal solution for broadcast, theatre, corporate presentations or teaching. There are two modes of operation: Setup and Show-Mode and three Layout Styles: Standard, Grid and Free-form. Trigger is both quick and easy to configure yet robust and “idiot proof”. The software will work with the hardware configuration of your choice (using either WDM or ASIO drivers on Windows systems) giving you the potential to access unlimited audio outputs, unlimited polyphony and unlimited cues.
The Trigger interface has been designed to be highly intuitive, so whilst being easy to get started, Trigger offers unparalleled control over your audio playback together with the additional benefit of video playback.
No limit to number of buttons, cue-sheets or simultaneous cues.
Import audio from virtually any format (including m4a).
Sample accurate programmable jumps for performing musically perfect coda “tags”.
Highly flexible links between cue buttons, allowing many trappable events to trigger a huge array of executable actions on target cues.
Each cue-sheet is fully discreet, meaning that buttons do not get inadvertently “wrapped” to a different cue-sheet.
Highly configurable user interface with three layout styles and two modes of operation.
Full surround sound capability, with potentially unlimited audio tracks and output channel count.
Support for WDM and ASIO, plus fully configurable MIDI I/O including MSC.
Video playback capability.
and much more!
Basic audio playback control consists of PLAY, STOP (FADE), KILL, PAUSE, RESUME etc. and whilst the basic playback operation is incredibly straightforward (Eg. click to play, click again to stop) highly complex compound playback scenarios can be set-up using links to control Target Cue-Buttons from a single Trigger (master) Cue-Button.
Beginning with simple trim and level adjustment, Trigger goes on to provide almost limitless control over your playback. Whether you wish to loop a track, adjust the tempo of the playback, skip a verse from a song or even play a track backwards, Trigger can handle it all.
Whilst Trigger uses either .wav or .aiff as native audio files, many other formats can easily be imported directly into a Trigger project including .mp3 and .m4a, without the need to run third party conversion software. All this helps to improve your workflow.
In critical situations where comprehensive redundancy is required, a secondary Trigger system can be set up to mimic the primary playback system. The secondary system, called the server system, runs an identical project to the primary, client, system. By linking the two systems together the server provides a real time automated backup in the event that the client system should fail.
