Some food for thought: The board can only get you so far... An optimized system that is tuned correctly is a good place to plug any board into. I guess everyone has their reason tho...


I'm sorry, I thought you could do that with ANY board and ANY set of Active speakers?? Or am I missing some feature of my board that I should be utilizing???!!! I'm all about learning new missed features to make my life easier.

And most definitely a poorly tuned system and it won't matter what you plug into it, it will sound like poo.

I've only had experience with the yhamie app, and it is no where near the same amount of control as what PreSonus enables. I only use the iPad to mix FOH if I absolute must as I dislike not being able to grab my handful of drum channels and boost them and the few drum break outs that occur each night. BUT I absolutely love that I can hand my brother the iPad and he can have it next to him while he's doing lights onstage and make minor monitor adjustments as necessary, including changing the GEQs if feedback issues occur. And all without having to purchase a second board and transformer isolating snake to feed both of them. It's absolutely brilliant.

Sorry Dreamweaver - I know this is several months old now. I used to get email notifications of posts made but for some reason I didn't get this. Yes you are correct that ANY board can plug into active speakers with mic cables and some racks of gear can be eliminated BUT there is more here the AI mixer accomplishes....

What makes the AI combination so powerful is that you do not need any other gear. The outboard crossover rack is eliminated and has been transferred to the speakers. All of those parameters are in the software now that is controllable from the iPad. The Top to Sub alignments can be made using the iPad. No need to walk up and edit any rack gear.... Smaart on board.... All the tools you need to handle system issues before you start mixing. Too many times - we mix on systems and expect the mixer to solve system issues, expect the graphic to fix it or whatever the case may be.

In my opinion - once you step outside the AI integration - you are adding gear, cables and eliminating the freedom of staying away from the mixer. For me - it doesn't get any better than this for the price.
