Product Description

How It's Innovative

There is currently no other technology that allows musicians to customize, sync, display, and manage all aspects of a performance–including charts and notation–across different devices in real time. Since Caedence is 100% browser-based, there is no software to download or hardware required–just an internet connection and a modern browser. Harnessing this power, Caedence lets musicians control audio, MIDI, stage visuals, and display elements synced in the cloud–across different devices.

Most Inspiring Use Cases

We believe that the collective imagination of Caedence users will eventually put this response to shame. In the meantime, the thought of a band being able to perform confidently with synchronized lights, video, images, (flying drones?), backing tracks, MIDI, and charts & lyrics across devices makes us feel extremely inspired. We also look forward to a time when musicians can create more interactive performances by sharing content (like lyrics, images, and more) to audience members' devices. Ultimately, the opportunity to give precious time and creative energy back to musicians – so they can push themselves and their art forward – is what inspires us the most.
