    Can I connect an iPad via Bluetooth to the cq12t without the use of any wi fi routers. This is a game changer question before I purchase. Many regards

    Yes and you’ll be able to play music via BT.
    No need of a router for that.

    To try and avoid any potential misunderstanding with the two types of external device connection to the CQ –
    The Bluetooth connection is for audio playback only.
    The network connection (either the built-in WiFi or connection to the Ethernet port) is for remote control of the mixer only.

    Thanks,
    Keith.

    Regardless of the number of I/O and FX engines, the CQ12T doesn’t forbid to have external control with your ipad.
    You can hook it to a simple wifi router and get a solid wifi connexion too.

    You can control any of the CQ range remotely using the CQ-MixPad app as follows:

    CQ-20B – Via built-in WiFi OR Router/Access Point connected to the Ethernet port OR Direct connection to the Ethernet port.
    CQ-18T – Via built-in WiFi OR Router/Access Point connected to the Ethernet port OR Direct connection to the Ethernet port.
    CQ-12T – Via Router/Access Point connected to the Ethernet port OR Direct connection to the Ethernet port.

    So referring to your original post, you would need the CQ-18T if you didn’t want to use an external router or access point for wireless control.

    Cheers!
    Keith.
