Oh, you may need to employ a permanent pc or mac at FOH though in order to use the Qmix app. Either that or buy one of the new "i" models that have a direct ethernet connection.
Mackie DL1608 does everything you're asking for. You can lock users from Main board settings. 10 iPads can connect at once.
About the flying faders (or lack of), it's a moot point for your application. The aux mixes aren't being affected by the position of the FOH mix faders (as long as they're set to pre-fader). Basically, the aux mix faders only exist in the virtual world...nothing to bump or mess up. You can change the mix for the each send right on the board but it has nothing to do with the faders themselves.I think for what you're trying to accomplish the SL is a great choice so long as it has enough sends...
I have experience only with the Yamaha based iPad apps but I have used that app for all of the Yamaha consoles that support it including the CL version which is supposed to be the most robust. One common issue with all of those apps is remaining connected after the venue fills up with a few hundred or few thousand cell phone toting audience members. I'm not really familiar with churches and their audiences, maybe the attendees are more religious about turning off their phones at the door ( sorry, couldn't resist ) but regardless of the app you chose I suspect your limiting factor is going to be wifi competition. I would suggest sticking with the hard wired solution if operation during the show/program/service is mission critical.
I've never had this issue. However, I always use a router that's locked down for console use only. Can you have congestion issues with people hooking up to other routers? This doesn't make since to me but.... I'm not a network guy. Can someone explain how this could be a issue 10-12 iPads on a dedicated network? Could other people interfere? Or is this a myth? I say myth but again not a network guy.
