Altamonte Springs, FL (June 2, 2011)–First Baptist Church of Altamonte Springs is using an Apple iPad with Allen & Heath’s MixPad app to control its iLive T-112 console via WiFi.
With the help of Entertainment Arts Inc., the church purchased an Allen and Heath iLive T-112 digital mixing console as well as wireless personal monitor systems for the entire band. Each band member has his own stereo auxiliary output from the iLive MixRack. “The iLive gives us the flexibility to choose what type of outputs we would want,” said John Williams, media director at the church. “But now that we have the wireless freedom, how do we solve the personal mixing part?”
Ultimately, the church purchased an iPad with the iLive MixPad app for each band member, allowing each to have full control over what he was hearing in his monitors while letting the FOH engineer focus on the house mix.
“The MixPad App is incredible; we couldn’t be more pleased with the flexibility the app allows,” said Williams. “We have full access to every channel on our console, and graphic equalizer on our personal auxiliary channel. This option far exceeds the limits of any 8, or 16 channel personal mixing systems. With the Custom Layer feature, you don’t have to worry about your band messing with the main mix–or anyone else’s mix for that matter,” said Williams.
