Showplay - Is Simply the best on stage Track Player there is.

referred to as My Secret Track Player in these great demonstration videos found at: 

Showplay is Windows Software and a USB Footswitch that can be used on a Laptop, Net book, or desktop computer running Windows 7, Vista or XP.

Plays:  MIDI Files, MP3s, Wav files, CDG files and more.

Shows:  Song list, Set list, Lyrics, Chords, anything you want to type or past in.  Lyrics can be on a second monitor too - if you like.

Comes with: USB Footswitch - which must be plugged in for software to work.  Very handy for starting tracks when your hands are busy.

I will never be able to list all the fantastic reasons why this is simply the best way to play tracks on stage for the professional entertainer. In any case, here are some of the features.

for yourself, a partner or the crowd.

Want more?  Here we go...
Insert or add special-requests at will.
Pre-select next song (or set) while current song plays.
Change set order on-the-fly (just move the cursor bar).
3-bars pre-count for markers to see them coming.
Useful to identify cue-points for start of verses, solo, ending, for non-karaoke songs.
Always proper sounds, levels, etc.  No matter if pausing, skipping forward, etc.
Even jumping mid-way in long sustained notes sounds these correctly.
Lock transposition for all songs until you reset it; a life-saver when your throat begs for relief.
Works with all synth types, even old non-GM.
Easily modify the type of reverb and chorus for individual songs (Hall, room, etc).
You can also specify the default reverb and chorus type for all songs.
Specify MIDI channels that will pass through your synth, allowing your songs to control external effects like reverb, guitar processor, harmoniser, light dimmer packs, etc, without a 2nd MIDI interface.
Setup allows muting selected MIDI channels of specific devices.
Panic key to stop and rewind the song; also resets your synth correctly.

Customizable RESET.MID and CONFIG.MID files,
 to send extra sysex and MIDI commands.

CONFIG.MID sent once at program start.
RESET.MID sent after every song played.
Customizable CONFIG.MID file, to send extra sysex and MIDI commands after each song played.
Integrated song / set management; i.e. renaming a song automatically updates all your sets to reference that new name.
Vast majority of lyrics formats supported via flexible artificial intelligence.
Cleans up auto-extracted lyrics by eliminating spam in Title, Author and Lyrics.
Supports foreign language characters.
ShowPlay is fast, regardless of 50 or 10 000 songs in list.

Convenient mouse features for laptops, especially for trackpoint and touchpad:

Drag forms by any empty area.
Maximize with double-click on any empty area.
Close forms with right-click on any empty area.
       (much easier than aiming for small X in upper-right corner)
Songs are "striked out" when played; it's easy to see which you already did.
At the end of a good gig, ShowPlay can make a set out of the songs you played.
Select display language on-the-fly.  English and French built-in.

 And a whole lot more.
