AudioBox AB64 Show Controller Description

The AudioBox AB64 onboard cue engine replays massive sound cues while exporting any MIDI commands in the cues and actuating GPIO contact closures. Eight independent cue lists with complete MSC timing allow cues to vary with show timing or human interactivity.

Free ABShowMaker Macintosh software provides exhaustive programming and control capabilities for any number of shows. Use any popular MIDI Sequencer to create complex MIDI compositions, capture them and place them in cues on the AudioBox AB64 via ABShowMaker.

Free ABEdit Windows software provides exhaustive programming and control capabilities for any number of shows. Use any popular MIDI Sequencer to create complex MIDI compositions, capture them and place them in cues on the AudioBox AB64 via ABEdit.

The AudioBox AB64 accepts MIDI Show Control commands from a wide range of Human-Machine Interfaces . The GPIO inputs trigger up to 255 cues with random access capability.
