Allen & Heath has released an iPad application for its iLive digital mixing system. iLive MixPad connects to an iLive MixRack on a wireless network and provides the essential controls for live mixing, including channel faders and mutes, DCA faders and mutes, image controls, aux sends, channel processing, mic-pre control and full metering. Channel processing encompasses high-pass filters, gates, parametric and graphic EQs, compressors, limiters / de-essers and delays.
iLive MixPad also offers several useful tools for system set-up, including channel assignment to mixes, a real time analyser and the facility to name and colour channel strips.
Glenn Rogers, Managing Director of Allen & Heath, commented: “As soon as we saw the iPad we were excited by the prospect of giving our iLive customers portable, intuitive control for mixing a show. In certain situations this app could even replace the console altogether, especially when supported by a PC or Mac for accessing setup features using iLive Editor software. Whether its operating standalone or complementing an iLive control surface, I can see front-of-house and AV engineers enjoying the ability to discreetly mix from anywhere in the venue, whilst monitor engineers will appreciate being able to balance monitors from the stage.”
The new app is the latest addition to a family of control options for the iLive system which also includes control surfaces, software, PL series remote controllers and the iLive Tweak iPhone app.
