I'm DJ'ing a wedding this weekend, and have a new iPad with the intent to remotely select tunes.

Is this "simple" to do?

I currently have the iPad set to work though a router and PC to remotely control the SL - that works fine (and was very easy, btw). I'm trying to keep that connection while also telling the PC to switch to iTunes so I can change songs as needed.

I"m sure it can be done - can anyone tell me how?

Sorry, it looks like I'm a little late, but for future reference, Apple has their own remote app, cleverly named, "Remote," that can control iTunes. http://www.apple.com/apps/remote/ You can control stop, start, next, previous, volume, and even build your playlist. It talks to iTunes directly, so there's no need to even have iTunes at the forefront of your PC.

Here's a link to it in the appstore. http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=284417350&mt=8

This app will also let others with remote installed on their phones to request songs in your library.

You'll have to check it out, but I don't see why it wouldn't work for you.

I hooked up Remote ... but could not get the system to recognize BOTH SL and iTunes ... one would work, but not the other. I'd get the other to work and the first would crap out. Perhaps I have a conflict or something.

I've used this method before and it works fine. Can you get Remote to work with iTunes so that you can control it with your iPad? As long as you can do that, all you have to do is switch between the Remote app and the SL Remote app on your iPad.

ya know .,, it almost worked ... except no sound came our of the SL ... I ended up Restoring to Factory Presets (or what ever it said) ... then I was no longer able to see both - or flip between them.

I'll keep playing with it,

In order to get the audio to come out of the desk you have to enable the firewire input on the incoming channel. I'm pretty sure by default it comes through channels 1 and 2. I changed mine to come through 25-26, which is the tape output. Then I simply engage the firewire button and audio is sent to the mains via the tape output dial.

That is correct, you need to route the audio where you want it to go. In the PC platform it's in the UC under outputs.
NOTE: If your having an issue, open a tech support ticket and bring the number here if you want help!
