You're mixing a show with an old-skool mixer, and you need to check the sound underneath the balcony—or in the balcony, for that matter. Or you're sound-checking and want to hear the stage monitors for yourself. If you can't leave the mixing station, you have to rely on someone else's ears. If you don't have a reliable crew, you don't have a chance.

That is, unless you use a StudioLive™ mixer and an Apple iPad®!

StudioLive Remote for iPad, available free from the Apple App Store, provides direct wireless control over PreSonus Virtual StudioLive software for Mac® and Windows®, which in turn controls any StudioLive-series digital mixer. As long as you have a wireless connection between your iPad and computer, you are in control of the console. 

The Overview displays the parameters for multiple channels at once. Tap for a close-up view of Fat Channel processing, and navigate between the gate, compressor, EQ, and so on with the flick of a fingertip.

The Aux view shows the levels, panning, and Fat Channel processing for the Aux sends and internal FX buses, while the GEQ view lets you adjust the graphic EQ.

Hold the iPad in Portrait position to see every parameter for a single channel.

SL Remote can control any first-generation StudioLive mixer on the wireless network, and multiple iPads can control the same StudioLive. (To control StudioLive AI-series mixers, please use SL Remote-AI, rather than SL Remote.) 

So walk around the venue, tweaking your mix on the fly. Adjust the stage monitors from the stage. You are now free to move about the venue!
