Music to your ears
MovieSlate automates your Music Video shoots— saving you time.
MovieSlate plays back a portion of a song for each take, from a Start point to an End point.
Local or Remote Playback.
When synced to a song, the music and sound effects can play on an iOS device’s own speakers, or on remote
speakers via AirPlay or by cabling to the iOS headphone jack or lightning port.
When WiFi Syncing to iPads
(using the optional Pro Features subscription), song info is sent to the receiving iPad.
If the receiving iPad’s music library contains the playback song, then the music plays
on both devices when the shot starts.
