Sound Show is a sound player designed for live performances. Find and play the right sounds at the right time and control each sound launched easily.  

I wrote Sound Show on my spare time to help me launch sounds during improv shows and kept adding features and improving it since.

It is a soundboard software that could be used to launch sounds for many activities : theatre, podcast, radio, sport, tabletop role playing game, dance...

It also displays elements (images, videos, webcam...) on a second screen and allows you to program sequences of elements to be played.


  • Play many sounds simultaneously
  • Individual management of each sound launched and global management of all sounds launched
  • Colors on buttons
  • Possibility to preset the start and stop of a sound as well as its volume
  • Crossfade, fade-in, fade-out (duration configurable)
  • Automix
  • Favorite bar for the sound that needs to be always accessible
  • Key shortcuts to have fast control (example : space bar allows you to jump immediately the volume to a predefined low level when somebody talks and go back to normal volume when space bar is released)
  • Send the sound on different sound output devices (example : Headphone/speaker). Useful to preview a sound before launching it for real.
  • Search of sounds on title and tags
  • No fixed limit of number of sounds or categories
  • Audio format supported : mp3, wav, flac, mp2, wma, ogg, aiff
  • Instructions system to play sequence of elements
  • Display video, image or text on a second screen
  • Launch external programs 

Notes : 

  • It is free but if you like this software and use it regularly, donations are very welcome :-)
  • Shipped only with a few sounds under free licence to serve as example.
  • Windows, MacOS ( min. 10.13 -High Sierra)  and Linux
