Roland Systems Group announces a dedicated iPad application to control the Roland M-480 digital mixing console.The application is designed to control parameters of the M-480 allowing the user to store scenes and edit the Channel Strip (EQ), GEQ, and Sends on Fader.
Using Wireless LAN to connect, customers are able to adjust mixing parameters on stage or around the room, away from the M-480 positioned at front-of-house. By connecting Roland’s new Wireless Connect USB adapter to the M-480 USB port, the M-480 can appear on a wireless network enabling the iPad to connect and control the M-480.
“The success of the iPad as a tool in live audio applications is clear,” says John Broadhead, Vice President of Technology and Communications for Roland Systems Group. “This dedicated app is an important step in a series of logical progressions in our development of remote controlled applications for operators.”
The company will demonstrate the beta version of the app at InfoComm 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, in booth #C10308. Roland Systems Group states that it expects to release the iPad Control in the App Store in the third quarter of 2012.
