Where to find everything

The remote and USB adapter are by L3 Systems.  The remote costs $150.00 for the two-button version.  The USB adapter is a bit more.  Check their website for more details:  www.l3sys.com

L3 Systems lets you buy directly through their website.

Winamp can be downloaded for free at: www.winamp.com

Windows Media Player is free through Microsoft Update. Note that you must be using Internet Explorer on a PC to access it.

Audacity, for editing sound files. Open-source & free!  http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Buy-out music, for royalty-free music: Search Google for companies. Take a look at www.freeplaymusic.com, as well as The Music Bakery.

Thereís music written especially for magicians.  One company Iíve seen ads for in the magic magazines has a web page with samples, and the music is royalty-free once youíve bought their CDs: http://www.opus1productions.com/

SoundPlant, for triggering random access cues:

Soundboard, also for random-access cues: www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/soundboard/index.html

Last Words

Iíve tried to make this as clear as possible, without writing an entire manual.  Again, if this is too complicated for you, find a friend whoís computer literate.  They should be able to help you out.

Iíll add more information to this site as it becomes available.  If youíve got something to contribute, drop me an email.
