Hi there

I have noticed that when using remote ai on an iPad that the faders and controls are often slow to respond. It's fine when using the test program but when connected to wifi at a gig I have had problems.

Has anyone else experienced this?

What other wireless devices do you have running? Mine acts like this when my Line 6 digital wireless devices interfere with my WiFi. Microwaves and anything else in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band can also interfere...

Thanks for your reply, but nothing else wireless that I can think of except the iPhones running qmix.

We've all seen it from time to time. A few of the things I have seen that help:

1. Avoid ad hoc (non-router) networks. In my experience, they are notoriously unreliable and introduce a host of unrepeatable variances that will drive you crazy. The safest route is an approved router, and it's a plus if you can select 2.4 or 5 to avoid conflicts or heavy traffic.

2. You will have to be mindful of how you place your fingers on the iPad. The faders are designed to "touch and go." In other words, it doesn't work well to put a finger on the fader to "ride" the level... it will often lock in place. When you need to make an adjustment, move the fader as soon as you select it with your finger.

3. When the connection seems iffy, do what you can to maintain line-of-sight with the router. This might mean elevating your router (mine is mounted to a boom mic stand specifically for this purpose), to something as simple as stepping a bit to the right or left or standing on a case. Whatever works to get those bars back!

Otherwise, there are quite a few things that can contribute or conspire to make your system drag. And it is a system, so look for possibilities at each connection point. You could share your setup with us here, and someone with a similar rig might have more ideas. Best of luck!
