iLive 101 – iLive MixPad setup

2013/09/11 in

iLive MixPad is an engineer’s mixing tool providing easily portable wireless mobile control for the iLive digital mixing system. It is the perfect companion to the iLive Surface or Editor, giving you the freedom to walk the room or stage and control the sound right where it is needed.  It provides a very visual and intuitive multi-touch virtual control surface giving you quick access to the mix sends and channel processing, full signal metering and the ability to configure custom strip layouts to work the way you prefer.

MixPad controls the iLive via a wireless router or access point plugged into an iLive network port. The iPad uses Wifi to connect to the iLive wireless network. 802.11n is recommended as it will maximise the wireless coverage. For more information please see our Router Compatibility guide here:
