10.9.19 – With macOS Catalina, File Sharing is now within the Finder
In October, 2019 macOS Catalina (10.15) was released, and with it, the File Sharing functionality between the computer and connected iOS devices changed from being within iTunes to the Finder. When you connect your iOS device to the computer, it will appear as an item within “Locations” in the sidebar of one of your Finder windows. You should see ShowOne as one of the apps listed there under “Files”; simply drag any audio files you want to import to the ShowOne icon and they’ll appear in the import queue as normal.
NOTE: This version has a problem with older devices running iOS version 9.3.5. We’re rolling back to an older version (which will be 1.3.13) until we fix the issue. If you don’t need ShowOne an older device with that iOS version, skip the 1.3.13 update and wait for the next one.
AT LONG LAST – with the release of ShowOne 1.3.12 you may now have a backup of all of your ShowOne tracks and sets! Play gigs with the security of knowing you have a safe backup of your show that can be restored to any of your devices. The “Backup/Restore” feature available as an in-app purchase in the Shop.
** See our new page about this feature in the Tips & Tricks section.

6.7.18 – New ShowOne updates (V1.3.9)
Versions 1.3.8 and 1.3.9 have brought a couple much-requested features to ShowOne:
ShowOne now works with non-whole number tempos to two decimal places BPM; i.e. 150.5, 85.85, 180.73, and so on. Enjoy the very precise tempos you can now have in your ShowOne tracks!
Click Mute may now be turned both on and off at chosen bars within a track. Use this to mute the click just for a section or sections of a song: for instance, mute the click for the intro of a song and have it come in when it’s time to start playing in the verse.
Look for many more sought-after features to be incorporated into ShowOne throughout the year!
9/25/17 – iOS 11 issues list – RESOLVED
Update to ShowOne V1.3.6 (released 9/25/17) for proper compatibility with iOS 11 and fixes to the below issues. Update to latest Dropbox version as well to fix #3 below.
Apple unveiled iOS 11 yesterday, and we discovered a couple issues around importing with this iOS update. We’re working fast on fixes and will have an update soon, but in the meantime here are the issues so everyone is aware and can plan to work around them.
FIXED IN SHOWONE V1.3.6 – Pressing the “+” Import button takes you to iCloud Drive within the new Files system in iOS 11. However it’s nearly impossible to navigate to your other cloud apps because to go to the main Browser page, you would press the “Locations” button which is near invisible against the background (see pic). To access Dropbox and other apps, press in the upper left corner which will take you to the main Browse page where all your cloud apps are located. If you’re not seeing one you have installed when you get there, press “Edit” in upper right corner and turn it on with the switch. Again the “Edit” button will be essentially hidden but it is there.
FIXED IN SHOWONE V1.3.6 – On an iPad only, when you’re entering tempo and other information during import, the tempo entry field is hidden (it’s covered up by the numeric keypad). You can still enter the number correctly, you just can’t see it as it’s entered. After importing a song we recommend checking the tempo you entered in the Track Settings > Track Import Settings > Original Tempo. If that’s incorrect you can change it there.
FIXED IN DROPBOX V64.3 – Dropbox import is broken. **THIS IS A DROPBOX ISSUE WITH ALL APPS – THEY WILL FIX ASAP. Selecting a file in Dropbox will download and appear to import, but the file will not show up in the import queue. All the other cloud apps work fine. Until they get a fix, please use one of the others like Google Drive or iCloud Drive.
Thanks for the patience, we’ll get these fixed asap!
ShowOne 1.3.4 – all new UI and more
This is our biggest update yet! With ShowOne 1.3.4 we’ve completely revamped the interface and user experience to make it easier to navigate and use. Every screen of the app has been updated and enhanced. In addition, we’ve fixed a few bugs and improved the User Cue functionality. Check the “Tips & Tricks” entry for a detailed look at all the changes.
ShowOne 1.3.4 includes:
a completely updated UI from the ground up
all new Home screen
redesigned in-app Shop
updated and reorganized Settings menus
improved User Cue feature: now User Cue works as expected in 4-channel mode as well as 2-channel mode
various bug fixes including the User Cue side-switching bug

8/19/16 – ShowOne V1.3 released featuring MIDI control

7/29/16 – Lit using ShowOne on Summerland Tour 2016
Alternative/rock band Lit (“My Own Worst Enemy”, “Miserable”) is using ShowOne throughout the Summerland Tour featuring Everclear and Sugar Ray in 2016. Check out a show – www.summerlandtour.net
New update out today with a couple helpful features:
– You can now change a track’s Original Tempo and Time Signature from within Track Settings – no need to delete and reimport a track anymore if the click is off sync because you entered the wrong tempo during import. It’s near the bottom of the settings page for each track.
– The green Preview button in the main Settings page now plays the last played track along with the click/count loop so you can adjust click and track volumes while listening, and hear how different click sounds feel against the music right from the Settings page.
IMPORTANT: This version (1.2.4) only works on iOS 8 and up, so all you users still on iOS 7 or the old school iPhone 4 will need to upgrade or be stuck at 1.2.3.
Please drop us a review on the App Store after downloading the new update!

12/16/15 – Tony Fagenson interview with theblackpage.net
ShowOne co-creator Tony Fagenson did a video-chat interview with Sean Mitchell of drummer blog The Black Page, discussing ShowOne and how it came into existence. Check it out at the link here:
The Music App Blog gave ShowOne a positive and thorough review over at their site, pointing out several of the key features currently in the app and also a few more that would make nice additions in the future. Trust us – we’re listening!
From the review: “At £6.99 UK for the ‘unlock’ IAP… [ShowOne] will probably pay for itself in convenience before you finish your first gig.”
Our friends at Big Fat Snare Drum (BFSD), the awesome snare drum dampening system that’s become a must have for working drummers everywhere, had this to say about ShowOne on Instagram this week:
“My buddies just came out with this app that gives you 4 channels (Stereo Tracks & Click) with a rock solid platform and a ton of features. I think this might be the answer to ditching a computer on stage. Go check it.”
Our pal Sean Winchester (freelance drummer and drum instructor, formerly Everclear) held a drum clinic at Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles on Tues. Nov. 24th. He used ShowOne to play along with a track for the audience, and said “The app worked perfectly!”

11/12/15 – Hello ShowOne!
Sidestage is now known as ShowOne!
The app is the same with all the great features you’ve been used to such as the automatic click, tempo adjustment, and voice counts, but with a different name. We made the change to avoid confusion with other “Sidestage”‘s out there in the music field.
A new version with the new name will be released on the App Store in a day or two. In addition we’ve added and fixed a few things in this version; check our other blog post or the App Store “What’s New” section for details.
We’ve changed over all of our social network links as well. If you already follow us on one of them, you don’t have to do anything as we’re keeping the same profiles and simply changing the name of them. Here’s all the links for reference:
Here’s a nice shot of ShowOne user Aaron Rothe’s stage setup as vocalist and keyboard player for Denver-based band, 888.

10/19/2015 – 48k WAV count-off bug
ShowOne users –
There is a bug in the current version (1.1) that causes 48k WAV files to play behind the click track when a count-off is added. This will be addressed in the next update to come in a few weeks. In the meantime, to use count off on these tracks, either convert your WAV files to 44.1k before importing or use MP3 or AAC files until we can get this fixed. Thanks!
The first significant update to ShowOne is now available in the App Store! New stuff includes:
• New click sounds in unlocked version: Cowbell, Stick, Beep, and the original Default
• ShowOne In-App Store – new features will now be available to buy as add-on In-App Purchases!
• Click Pack 1 – a pack of well-known clicks you may be familiar with now available as the first item in the Store. Clicks are Ability, Fruity, Rational, and Sampler.
• Click Mute – set a bar in each track for the click to turn off (for the end fadeouts of songs for instance)
• Bar Counter is now green, and during voice countoff the counter is red and with negative values to denote countoff bar
• Cue Split mode – when in 4-channel (2x stereo) mode, it is now possible to send the click and the countoff out separate channels (3 and 4).
• Transport area less sensitive to sliding in and out of Show View (easier to Play/Stop)
• Airplane/Notifications Alert and Unlock popup reminders
• “Ambient Chill” default track fixed
• A couple bugs swatted
• iOS 9 compatible!
Here’s a snippet of video of Tony and Eve 6 using ShowOne at the Greek Theatre LA, July 19 2015!
New update coming soon…
A handful of cool new stuff is coming in the 1.1 update, including new click sounds, visual enhancements, a new track settings feature, and the debut of the In-App Store! Check back soon for details…

If you like us on Facebook, we promise to keep working to make Sidestage the best app ever for your backing tracks! Well we’re gonna do that anyway whether you Like us or not…but it’ll put a smile on our faces, and smiles are a good thing, right?
Having spent many years frustrated with current solutions and trying just about every method under the sun, we felt there needed to be a better way to get musicians in sync with their backing tracks on stage and in rehearsal.
So after several years of brainstorming, idea-forming, discussing, preparing, and finally executing, we’re finally able to bring our vision to you. If you’re someone who’s looking to better incorporate your backing tracks into your performances, please, head over to the App Store and give ShowOne a try (it’s free to download). Look for a lot more online resources such as tutorial videos, tips and tricks, and more in the coming weeks. And we would love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet us, leave us comments on FB, whatever.
Enjoy ShowOne – the ultimate backing tracks tool for musicians!
