iLive Editor



1 iPad2 running iOs 6.1.3
2 iPad2s running 5.1.1
All are DHCP clients connecting to 5GHz network only


All V1.91

I place the iDR32 on stage somewhere near the band, often with the AirPort Extreme sitting on top of MixRack, as long as there is line-of-sight, otherwise I move it up higher. MacBook Pro placed wherever it’s convenient.

Obviously long Ethernet cables are required to connect the AirPort Extreme and MacBook to the iDR32.

Usually have everything configured via the Editor prior to the event, then use the iPad for sound checks and running the show.

Normally have a maximum of 16 inputs to watch at any one time, so refreshing of the screen is not a major issue.

I don’t do complicated events and usually sit in the audience or stand no more than 60-80 feet away from the stage. Often someone else is on stage handling monitors with either an iPad or the Editor.
