    Yes i know, someone will comment use your ears or this is for rookies but i want to share my workaround for RTA Overlay.

    I use this little irig ipad adapter connected with a trs/XLR adapter-cable from the phones out of the mixer and run a RTA App on my ipad:

    irig adapter

    Now, i’m able to display whats going on on any input/output channel by simply pressing the PAFL button.

    Sometimes, i like to see what i hear

    I do this! its not a fancy box like that, just a splitter from the combi jack into a headphone and mic socket. Im taking the line from the headphone out on the mixer to the ipad so the RTA follows the PAFL!

    Hi Richy, Great information mate. What RTA app are you using for the ipad.

    Cheers.

    You could also use a transparent wavetube with plastic granulate inside, measure the distance between the peaks and calculate the frequency using the speed of sound. Just as practical!

    Make sure you take humidity into account!

    The 4 pole jack plugs into the iPad.

    Do new iPads have jack sockets, or have they gone like on the new iPhones?

    To expand, PAFL audio doesn’t often get to an iPad via wireless. Much too long latency.
