What happens when you make adjustments to a channel level and you go back to the console, is your original physical fader position at the same level you had it before the adjustment from the house with your Ipad? If so, can you reference your Ipad for the "new" level?

The sliders will be at the same physical position you left them. The Remote app does not move them. Your settings in the fat channel will be an exact match to what is dialed in via the app.

If you want to make everything match up just hit locate and match the faders back up.

it can be very bad if you do not locate the faders if you plan to use remote and hardware controls

person #1 puts bass in the FOH for a gig before soundcheeck - during soundcheck bass is not needed as amp is loud enough on stage - its pulled right out of FOH mix via the ipad.


person #2 looks at desk and sees bass fader up and wants to adjust the volume up / down either way a little - moves fader a tiny way in either direction and massive amounts of bass come out of the FOH


I wish the fader did not actually work if the board knew the encoder was not in the correct location - IE If fader is at -20 and should be at unity it would not register any changes on the hardware side until the fader was put at unity

Unless it causes a problem, I'd do it before you leave so you don't forget upon your return.

I don't have the ipad app, but have a question.
Will the SL respond to the ipad when in "Locate" mode?
Will you see the fader position LED's change as the ipad controls the faders?

In hindsight, that seems so obvious... yet it never occurred to me until I just read that.

Because I am the only one that ever touches the board or iPad app... I am not worried about the virtual tug-o-war of fader positions due to usage at the same time... BUT... I know for a fact that I HAVE gone-out front to "tweak" a cursory mix between the guitar, bass, vox1 and vox2... and then NOT gone back to "Locate Mode" to sync the physical location of the sliders to their new ACTUAL (digital) location.

My guess is that I've defeated some of my efforts once going back to the board and touching a fader (thinking it was at the attenuation of the PHYSICAL location of the fader). The good news is, we're talking ever-so-slight adjustments that I make... so I am confident that the mismatch wasn't all that jarring when the encoder overrides the remote value.

Thanks for that simple tip to hit "Locate" before walking out front. [ slaps forehead ]
I feel silly for not doing that all along.

Right after we connect the ipad at a gig, we leave the board in 'locate' mode.

That way you can see exactly what changes have been made with the ipad.

I think the question is "If I change the fader position on the iPad and then move the physical fader when not in "locate" mode, what happens?"
Does the physical fader increase or decrease the volume when moved, or does the volume revert to where the physical fader was before the iPad intervened? And if in locate mode, does moving the physical faders raise or lower the output volume when in "locate" mode? What if I move the fader to the wrong position in "locate" and then move the fader again once I have exited "locate" mode. Does the volume jump to the physical fader location and move from there?

How about this? i just leave the faders all the way down on the board and don't even use the locate. I tried the locate last week and got in all sorts of trouble, couldn't get the mains back on for some reason. I rebooted the board with faders down and when came back up, everything matched the Ipad then. Oh, I did slide the saved mix back to board. This week, didn't use locate and everything was fine. Am i doing something wrong or is that just the way it works?---Henry

you must be doing something wrong - the 4x sub levels and the main level are shown in the top right of the board - locate mode will show the faders in the fat channel - if you set you normal channe lfaders and do not do your mains - when you press locate again if your fader is down your output will be muted
