I had one friend tell me a blue tooth USB interface might be the way to go but from what I can tell that has distance limitations... any ideas???


Originally, yes, Bluetooth was range limited, since only Class 2 devices were available, but they now have Class 1 devices with a stated range of up to 100 m. According to an article in Mix a few months ago, they've been used quite successfully for sound system control.

In theory, yes, although I'm not at all familiar with the specific products you'd need to do it. But my understanding is that it's perfectly feasible. Definitely check out the Mix article, which is at: http://mixonline.com/mag/audio_zooming_zone/index.html

Now if only somebody were making a Bluetooth or WiFi firewire unit, so I could connect my audio interface to my computer wirelessly. In my little dream world, my laptop would hook up wirelessly to the audio interface, and then back to whatever processing gear I'm using, so I could just walk around with the unencumbered laptop and do tweaking and measuring from anywhere in the venue. Yeah, I could do that by using a second computer, but to be able to do it with a couple pieces of hardware and my laptop would be so much more economical.

Although some days I am tempted to get a nice shock rack for my editing computer when I'm home on winter break and bringing it out as the measurement computer, and then just using the laptop as a remote. Not sure it's worth the hassle, especially since it's at my own expense, but sometimes the idea is really tantalizing.
