Linux Show Player, LiSP for short, is a free cue player, mainly intended for sound-playback in stage productions, the goal is to provide a complete playback software for musical plays, theater shows and similar.


Here some functionality offered by LiSP:

  • List layout

  • Cart layout (buttons) for touchscreens

  • Undo/Redo changes

  • Concurrent cues playback

  • Pre/Post wait

  • Realtime sound effects: equalization, pitch shift, speed control, compression

  • Send/Receive MIDI and OSC

  • Multi-language support

  • Can play (almost) any kind of media file

Project Status

Currently, only GNU/Linux systems are supported.

The application is quite stable, it’s already been used for multiple performances by different people, but, due to the heterogeneous nature of the GNU/Linux ecosystem, my suggestion is to test it in a “production” environment to detect possible problems with some configurations.
