Title: SL Ipad App
Post by: Matthew Haber on January 12, 2011, 06:17:43 pm
Wow. This is the first time I have been even remotely tempted by the SL. I am still not going to get one since I do theatre sound and I need better (useful) scene recall functionality and moving faders but I would really like to see Yamaha release a version of Stage Mix for the LS9 and maybe even their not-officially-live-sound-consoles (DM1000, 01V96, etc) so I can stop having to VNC into the computer that runs Studio Manager. It is nice to see the Presonus is working to add functionality for existing and future SL owners alike.

It took a while to decipher the shorthand, but I think Matthew is talking about this:

Nope, I was talking about this:

Sorry about the lack of clarity. I figured everyone got the same Presonus email spam that I do.

Word on the Presonus forums is that the app is finished and at Apple already, but it still has to go through the Apple certification process.  Doesn't do FX though.

On the old forum someone said an app for the LS9 was on the way and so did yamaha on twitter. No release date so far, though.

The SL Remote for iPad does do FX.  Was playing with it today.  It's very nice.

I liked it very much, although I donīt have a SL. It sure looks way better than the Yamaha Stage Mix, where you can only move faders and do some EQ.

The Allen and Heath ipad app for iLive users is also out now, for some more comparison.

The new SL app looks great and has really changed my thoughts on buying a SL24. I do however have a couple of questions.

How can you control the channel levels when the faders aren't motorized?

Also one of the youtube videos I watched on the Ipad app mentioned that it will control upto 8 graphic eqs..... Is that 8 single 31 band eqs, 8 stereo eqs? So at the least I would have 2 channels of GEQ for FOH and 6 GEQs for aux/mon sends?

This may not be right, since I have no experience with the SL, but I would imagine it would be somewhat similar to some lighting consoles I've used.  The levels are controlled digitally, the fader is just a physical means of doing so.  You can change levels all you want with the iPad app, but if you want to change a level on the board, the fader doesn't do anything until you reach the point where the fader level and actual level are the same and then you can use the fader again.

Actually to reset the faders when you return to the console:

1. Press the Locate button
2. Move your faders to match the fader settings that were set with the iPad (displayed on the console)
3. Press the Locate button again to turn off locate mode
4. The movement of the faders will control the board again

Thanks Chris, so its kind of like getting the faders right with a scene recall (have only use the SL16 once about a year ago). Good to know, I was thinking that maybe it didn't control channel levels at all.
