Yes, you will... so be sure to set your device to Airplane Mode and turn off Wi-Fi before starting your show.
Go Button does everything it can to minimize interruptions. For example, opening a show stops audio that might be playing in other apps on your device. Nevertheless, apps cannot prevent system audio from being heard, like if you receive a call or text message during a show.
For this reason, we recommend running your shows with your device completely offline. This minimizes the chance that a system alert sound will interrupt your show and also conserves your battery life.
Yes, shows can be shared and imported on other devices freely. You can even import a Go Button show into QLab.
When you export a show from Go Button, you can select whether or not to
include the audio files used in your show. Exporting just your show
data creates a very small
.gobutton file, which is fast and easy to
share. This is useful if you just need to update a show on another
device that already has copies of the audio files you need.
Exporting a show with your audio files creates a larger
file. In addition to containing your show data, this file also contains
copies of all of the audio files from your “Documents”
folder that are used in your show. Note that Go Button cannot export
tracks that are synced to your iTunes Music Library. You will need to
manually sync or download those tracks to any other devices to run your
For more details, see the documentation page Importing, Exporting, and Restoring Your Shows.
Be sure to download Go Button on your new device using the same App Store account Apple ID that you used to make your original in-app purchase. Then in the Sidebar, tap “Unlock Go Button Pro” and then tap “Restore Previous Purchases”.
This error results from a limitation of the iOS system process that serves iTunes Music Library tracks to third-party apps like Go Button.
iOS does not give Go Button direct access to the audio files in your Music library — that only happens for the files that you import into Go Button’s “Documents” folder. If your show uses a large number of tracks from the Music library, the iOS service that provides these tracks to Go Button can become overwhelmed when you first open a show. When this happens, those cues will appear disabled and display a “too many files open” error message.
The actual number of Music library tracks that can be accessed at one time varies from device to device, depending on its specific capabilities.
To avoid this problem, we strongly recommend that you import your audio files into Go Button using one of the many methods described in the documentation page Importing Audio Files. You can then find your audio in the “Documents” tab of the Media Picker and assign one of those files to your cue or hit.
Having your audio files saved in your Documents folder is not only more efficient for Go Button to access, it also allows you to include your audio files with your show data when you export it as a show bundle.
