A&H T112 iPad control
« on: February 05, 2015, 07:43:29 am »

I'm working on an Allen & Heath T112 system and just hooked up an iPad for remote control. However, it has a 48 channel "master" MixRack plus a 32 channel "slave" MixRack, and there doesn't appear to be any way for the iPad to control the Slave Rack, only the Master Rack. Are there any aftermarket patches that will allow iPad control of the Slave Rack? Can I hang a second WIFI router on the Slave Rack and jump onto it as a second Master Rack using the iPad? Any workarounds out there?

that's good question I bet if you called ams they could tell you. my first guess would be if you did set up a second router with a different network and yes you could. there's a tutorial on how to network with the I live make sure you watch it if you haven't done this before you can't just have the router 192. 168. 1. 1 or .2 or .3. The ilive needs that for its communication

Yes, I watched the tutorial and have the first WIFI router set up to miss the IP addresses of the iLive surface and MixRacks. So that's all working great, but I want to access the Slave rack from the iPad as well. I have a call into tech support about this, but was thinking this should be a common question. I'll report back what I find out.

We're using the slave for more input channels.

No, after we ran an extra Cat5 cable which we were going to use for a network in addition to an ACE connection, we were advised by A&H tech support that we only needed the ACE cable. But that's an interesting point. Perhaps running both the network and ACE lines would add iPad connection across both MixRacks.

The configuration you have is called 'dual rack mode' and is NOT supported by the iPad mixapp. You will only see the channels of the first rack, no matter what. Another shortcoming of this pretty expensive (in comparison) app.

Bummer! There is so munch potential  with the ilive but they have basicly given up on it over the years.

Exactly. A lot of potential, a lot of possible, not that hard to do enhancements. Especially the iPad app is a big letdown, as basic features are missing which basically every other mixer app has FOR FREE now. And as every newer A&H product has some detail missing I expect in a modern digital mixer the two iLive systems will be the last A&H systems I bought. It is still their top of the line product, there was a promise of ongoing development and that's what I expect for my hard earned money.
