Prepare for every moment

Customize the Pad Player behavior for each song in your setlist. Turn the pad player off for a song, or choose to only play in the intro and outro of a song.

Assign a unique Ambient Pad to each song in your setlist including Playback Song Pads, custom-built pads crafted to match a growing number of songs in our catalog.

Take advantage of brand new transitions for cueing the next song, or staying in the moment with the pad when current song ends.

Pad Player Interface

Take control with the all-new Pad Player interface.

Playback can now be used as a fully operational pad machine. Crossfade between keys at will, and switch between any purchased Ambient Pad sounds in real time.

Create powerful moments on the fly by unlinking the Pad Player from your setlist, then re-link at any point with the touch of a button.

Respond with Pad Player

Respond to any moment.

While a pad is playing, use Playback’s Song Section Pre-Roll feature by navigating to any section of any song in your setlist. Press play, and you’ll hear a 1 bar count-off as the tracks fade in.

You can even download a new song while a pad is playing. Now, you can go in and out of any moment with flawless transitions.

Endless pad sounds to choose from.
