• 3.19.2022 – V 1.5.3 available

    ShowOne version 1.5.3 has been released. This update improves stability with wired and Bluetooth MIDI connections, and includes features from 1.5.2 such as a text enlargement button for Set View.

  • 10.16.21 – ShowOne 1.5.0 released w/ iPad support!

    Finally – ShowOne for iPad has arrived!

    You may now use ShowOne properly on the iPad in both portrait and landscape orientations, taking advantage of its larger form and certain iPadOS multitasking capabilities. Lay your iPad on its side at your gig or rehearsal and control ShowOne just like any other landscape app. Easily switch over to other lyric or chord sheet apps with ShowOne’s steady playback continuing in the background. And of course you may as always use it in portrait mode just like the iPhone.

    NOTE: you may not switch the orientation while using the app. To switch from portrait to landscape or vice versa, simply quit ShowOne, change the orientation, and open ShowOne again.

    We’ve been asked about this for a long time from users and we’re happy to finally bring it to you. There will be lots of improvements and upgrades to the ShowOne iPad experience moving forward – this is just a solid first step. And don’t worry iPhone users – ShowOne isn’t going anywhere and will continue to improve on both devices. If you have any questions or suggestions about ShowOne on iPad or anything else, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at

  • 11.30.2020 – ShowOne V1.3.21 released

    This version brings a handful of useful new features to ShowOne as requested by users. Sets now display their total time next to their name in both set/show views and the sets list. You can now shut off the internal click across the entire app in Settings, as well as disable all Cue Channel routing so that ShowOne functions as a normal player of stereo audio files that you import. There are also a few bug fixes and improvements for compatibility with iOS / iPadOS 14 devices.

    Update here:


  • 9.3.2020 – ShowOne V1.3.20 released

    New version available in the App Store with bug fixes and the ability to duplicate (or delete) a set by swiping left on the Set name in the Sets list.

    Also included are the updates from versions 1.3.17- 1.3.19 which are bug fixes and better under-the-hood compatibility with current and future versions of iOS and iPadOS, and the vastly improved Backup and Restore that allows you to share or backup the entire contents of ShowOne to other devices or the cloud.

    Update here:

  • 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.

    For more info, see this Apple support document:

  • 8.17.19 – ShowOne Backup and Restore is here!

    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:

    1. 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!
    2. 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.

    1. 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.                                                                                                                                                          
    2. 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.
    3. 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:

    1. a completely updated UI from the ground up
    2. all new Home screen
    3. redesigned in-app Shop
    4. updated and reorganized Settings menus
    5. improved User Cue feature: now User Cue works as expected in 4-channel mode as well as 2-channel mode
    6. various bug fixes including the User Cue side-switching bug

    Let us know what you think of the new design and what you’d like to see next in ShowOne, and don’t forget to leave a review/rating on the App Store!

  • 4/26/26 – ShowOne 1.2.4 released


    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!

    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:






    Thanks, and enjoy the new ShowOne!

  • 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!

  • 10/16/2015 – Easy to get started

    We really wanted to make it easy for musicians to get up and running quickly with their tracks. All you need is a cheap splitter or breakout cable, and you can play a show or rehearse in sync with your tracks right away. The app takes care of putting everything where it needs to be so you can worry about the most important thing – the music. • • • •

  • ShowOne is officially available on the App Store!

    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, tweet us, leave us comments on FB, whatever.

    Enjoy ShowOne – the ultimate backing tracks tool for musicians!
