TimeCode Live is the  industry leading software for syncing visuals, light and SFX to your DJ set and is best suited for the largest touring parties, festivals, venues and artists.
TimeCode Live is the big one in our range!

This software package allows the synchronization of every element in the performance, without the artist or front of house losing any control.

Since its launch, TimeCode Live has been declared as “indispensable” by the likes of Armin van Buuren, AfroJack, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Hardwell, Martin Garrix and many others.

Professional DJ sets have been relying on a wide range of hardware and their different protocols for years. However, ...

as performances are growing bigger in scale, we sense the complexity of the productions is getting higher with every show. A growing demand in richer harmony in audio, visuals, lights, CO2 and pyrotechnics is at the heart of the changing character of professional performance .

TimeCode Live is the missing link between the DJ-booth and front of house. The software is able to sync with the DJ-deck to know exactly what is happening in the DJ-booth. One device is appointed as a master machine to keep track of the show and all other disciplines can tap in to this to receive syncing signals in their own preferred protocol.

Every member of the crew is able to see which track is playing or being queued, allowing the crew backstage / in the front of house to prepare for upcoming show moments while providing all freedom and flexibility to the DJ.

TimeCode Live has the ability to play or generate audio in sync with these tracks: supporting artists such as singers or dancers can listen to click-tracks that synchronize to the currently playing track. TimeCode Live also displays a visual waveform of the audio so even when a local crew member is unfamiliar with the running track, show moments such as laser or pyrotechnics can still be launched in sync.

Another key feature is the ability to have a back-up track running along with the set. During changeovers between artists there is an increased risk of physically disconnecting vital cable , which could result in an audio black-out. By keeping a dubbed track running from front of house, TimeCode Live is able to switch input unnoticeably when the sound from the stage might fail.

Since TimeCode Live works with any protocol, every discipline is still able to use the software they have been familiar with for years, while subsequently enjoying the benefit of knowing exactly what is happening on the DJ’s decks.

TimeCode Network even creates the possibility to direct show-moments in advance, while still in the airplane flying to the destination of the performance.
