Cue makes it easy to create and manage beautiful, fully responsive audio playlists. Primarily built with music in mind, Cue can also be used for podcasts, sermons or to showcase voice over samples.

There’s no need to fiddle with XML, JSON, or FTP. Just upload audio files with the familiar WordPress Media Manager, then insert them into a playlist with the click of a button. Cue fetches metadata from uploaded files to automatically complete the title, artist, and length for each track.

It works on desktop, tablets, and other mobile devices.

About AudioTheme

Cue is built by the team at AudioTheme. We’re a small, independent team of designers, developers and musicians focused on creating and supporting professional, world-class WordPress themes and plugins for bands and musicians.

Cue was originally integrated in our commercial platform, but we wanted everyone to have the ability to easily create beautiful playlists, so we released it free for general use. It powers the unique players in all of our premium music themes, as well as CueBar, a site-wide, continuous audio player made for WordPress.

We care about our work and stand by it. We’d love to have your support and the opportunity to earn your loyalty.
