Roland Systems Group iPad Control for M-480
Roland Systems Group has launched a dedicated iPad application to control its M-480 Digital Console.
The app has been designed to control the parameters of the M-480, as well as giving additional practical features such as the ability to store scenes and edit the Channel Strip (EQ), GEQ and sends on fader.
Connecting the Wireless Connect USB adaptor to the M-480 USB port enables the M-480 to appear on a wireless network so that the iPad can connect to and control the M-480 remotely. Using the wireless LAN to connect, required level adjustments can be made from different locations within a venue, rather than being restricted to the position of the console. As well as providing improved ease-of-use and mobility, this dual-screen set-up can be used by the radio mic technician to check and monitor each microphone as it is handed out during a live performance, without any interruptions to the show.
‘The success of the iPad as a tool in live audio applications is clear’, says Simon Kenning, Sales Manager RSG UK. ‘This dedicated App is an important step in our development of remote controlled applications for operators.’
