Interesting Windows alternative to StageMix
« on: February 16, 2011, 06:02:38 PM »

I just became aware of a Windows alternative to StageMix, Airfader, that was developed by Labster Adam Ellsworth. Just reading the website it seems significantly more powerful than StageMix. It is currently available for LS9, with support for M7 to follow. Hopefully, now that there is a Mac OS network driver from Yamaha, Adam will be able to bring it to iPad.

It seems to have been available for a while, how did I miss this?

hmmm...interesting. Certainly looks like a much more usable GUI than Studio Manager.

PM5D version coming soon?

Really though, I think Yamaha needs to man-up and give SM a complete overhaul in light of the wireless tablet revolution of the last couple years.

Thanks for the shout-out, Mac!

It is currently available for LS9, with support for M7 to follow.

If someone would kindly ship me an M7CL that would definitely speed the process.

(I do have a couple available for testing locally - but in the past I've been holding off on M7CL development as well as product promotion until I had a small base of satisfied users. The two consoles speak a completely different dialect of the exact same language. But it is definitely possible... implementing a VCA layer would be the only "major" change.)

Edit: I have not looked much into PM5D support as they're actually hard to get around here. So, if I can borrow someone's spare PM5D for a month, they would get a free copy of the software. Maybe two.

Hi Justice,

"Really though, I think Yamaha needs to man-up and give SM a complete overhaul in light of the wireless tablet revolution of the last couple years."

The simple fact that Studio Manager does not scale to different screen resolutions is reason enough to overhaul it!

Or how about this:
With the 01V96 Editor, you can click on some knobs and then spin them with arrow-up/down keys.  On others you can't!

I work with it, and at the same time have a list of improvements that would be very useful.
 
Thanks and good health,  Weogo

Just was showing Air Fader to a friend a few minutes ago. Like it a lot :-)

Thanks for the heads up! Just bought - looks awesome and so far works fine in the warehouse. Looking forward to using it in combat.

I hope so, because from what I've heard there's not going to be a new mixer, at least not in the PM1D segment.

Any reports on using airfader remotely...running on a stationary PC but controlled via VNC on ipad/tablet?

Not to beat a dead horse from recent topics, but could well inform a hardware purchase to control a variety of consoles and networked system devices.
