Hey guys, got a idea. Our FOH guy mixes the live shows we do from his iPad, while I stay with the board on stage to mix monitors. We'd like him to be able to solo and hear things from where he is. Our original thought was to get wireless inears and go straight from the headphone output on our board, then he could just tell me what he wants to solo. This method is not so good. Is there any way he can control his own headphones or inears at FOH without disrupting my work? Perhaps a way to hook up to the iPad?... It's a tricky problem, any ideas are appreciated.
Cheers,

What you need is two independent solo systems. The mixer only has one.

Right now I can think of only one solution: Connect a Mac to the mixer.

Macs allow aggregated audio devices. That way you can have StudioOne use both the SL interface and the Mac's built in audio interface. One of you can use the mixer's solo system, the other one can use S1's solo system through the built in audio interface. Up to you to work out the details.

Hmm, interesting.. We have a mac mini hooked up to it that I use. So if we got him a MacBook, he can stay wireless and go through its interface to solo and hear his mix?

Like I said, you'll have to work out the details:
- who's gonna do the channel eq and dynamics?
- how to get wireless audio to the FOH guy?
- when recording, how to deal with DIgOut?
- all things considered, who'll get the mixer's solo system and who gets S1?

PS. The Mac Mini will do, with monitor and mouse, running S1. The FOH guy can stay on iPad.
