We were not allowed a FOH mixing position (we were officially a stall-holder, not a stage!) so didn’t really have a choice. To be honest, with a good tech on the monitor desk taking responsibility for getting a sensible gain setting and channel naming it was relatively pain free.

Main problems we found were the visibility of the iPad screen in bright sunlight – if anybody has a good solution to this, do tell. Then there’s battery life over a long day. This was easily sorted by having 2 iPads – one stays at the desk charging (and being used) and we swapped them every couple of bands.

I’ve done “one desk and an iPad” with the desk at FOH and iPad for mons in the past and found that more tricky. iPad for only L&R is much easier than for 4 or 5 stage mixes.

Oh – and mix sends are all set to pre-eq so FOH bod can adjust eq as required. Apart from one acoustic guitar which I suspect had a faulty pickup, lack of individual eq on channels for mons was not a problem.
