  "Used SFX at Barn Theatre-awesome. Where was this for all the times I had to play back cues using a tape recorder?"  - Mike Schatzberg

"We finally coordinated compatible sound cards with your software. SFX provides excellent control of the sound effects that I designed for our production of Oedipus the King. In conjunction with an 8 channel card and a vanilla, but fast PC, complex sound cues can be triggered with the simple push of a go button... reliably. Thanks for an excellent product which serves the theatre well."
 - Rob Shakespeare, Indiana University

"Stage Research has definitely 'packed the house' when it comes to their SFX line of softwareI never thought it could be as good as it has been for us.  But this product
has already done more than we ever thought possible." - Another happy customer
