FX Lite is a special iPhone version of the popular iPad app FX Live. It's a powerful sound cue control application designed for theater use but suitable for all live productions.

FX Lite features the ability to sequence multiple virtual FX players with programmable crossfades between the different elements.

It has been designed to be fast and easy to use for everyone from the occasional user doing a school production to those creating complex, multi-layered shows in a professional or semi-professional environment.

It is fully compatible with its big brother FX Live 2 and can play back the more complex shows created on FX Live 2.

It also features the ability to record sound directly into the application using a fast easy to use record option.

Beautifully designed with documentation and support, this rock solid application is a must for anyone doing live sound.

It gives a clear indication of where you are in the show and what events are currently running.

However, in any live performance you have to expect the unexpected, and FX Live has been designed specifically with flexibility in mind:

  • You can quickly jump to any point in the Cue List and pick up from that point

  • Individual running elements can be paused, stopped or have their level overridden

  • An ALL STOP button is also provided to silence everything


This is where all the work is done to design the show. This consists of creating a set of cues with one or more events.
