I couldn't find anywhere else to post this, so Pit, help me.

I'm in an electronicore band, go ahead and give me crap for it. Anyways, we use Reason 4.0 as a backing for our guitar and vocals, in other words, it's our drums and bass.
When we play live, i have to consult to my computer to change the file to the next song after every song. It's annoying and it makes the show choppy.
Is there any known software that will automatically choose the file i want and open it in Reason? Or is this a future technology that humans have yet to develop?

Thanks.

Export the backing as mp3's and play them in iTunes or something of the sort with the right amount of time between songs.

The problem with that is that the quality is a lot better when it's raw, straight off of Reason.

Export them for sure.

If you prefer to do the switching yourself, have a band mate(s) solo or improvise in the down time.

record the backing tracks to ADAT tapes and play those, this is what the majority of bands that use prerecorded/programmed material do.

DO NOT use mp3s, lossy audio sounds horrible at high volumes.
