Stage Research, creators of SFX, one of the industry's most trusted and widely used sound playback software programs, today unveiled the latest version of their inventory and paperwork managing software program, ShowBuilder, Version 5.

ShowBuilder is quickly becoming the latest must-have software program for industry professionals hoping to get a handle on the day-to-day paperwork of their jobs.

"ShowBuilder is a program that helps manage all the paperwork for your design", says developer Shannon Slaton.  "We all do a lot of the same stuff when working on a show.  We all have budgets, and sound cues, and notes, and lists of equipment.  Just one show could have several thousand parts and pieces used in it and ShowBuilder helps you keep track of where they are and where they came from.  ShowBuilder streamlines the process by giving the user one central place to keep track of all your daily activities."

The latest version of ShowBuilder allows you to:

  • Add devices to your system by quantity.

  • Make an Equipment List a Global List so any show can see it.

  • Create custom items to add to your sound system. For example if you use a drummer with four mics all the time, you can create that as a custom routine and drop it into any show in just seconds.

  • Store connection points for a piece of equipment in the catalog

  • Patch equipment the way it really looks on a signal flow drawing.

The biggest improvement overall in ShowBuilder 5 is that everything has been streamlined and simplified in order to speed up all your daily routines.
