can it be done? - everytime I flick between the DMX Lighting software and SL remote, the SL remote will drop its connection and I have to force close it - actually it happens when I change to any app that isnt SL remote

I saw the release notes saying that the ipad cant goto sleep but nothing about it stops it multi tasking ability

That does not happen to me. I use winamp, VSL, and capture all at the same time without that issue. I have other issues, though.

Apple's (current?) implementation of multi-tasking isn't really true multitasking... I would not recommend anyone swapping-out of the PreSonus app while mixing their show unless they no longer need the app active. There are many apps I have that in-theory work great with other apps - and I'd love to bounce back and forth between them, but because of the way MT works right now, the apps themselves (or the way they are written) do not allow for quick toggling between them, and it's a hassle. One example: My bank (USAA) has a GREAT iPad banking app... and I have a great iPad calculator app from Tapbots... but when I swap between them, I am logged-out of my banking app each time.

I'm sure we'll get there eventually. Remeber... these things were JUST introduced a year ago - and look how much adoption there is already...!!! Give it time... you'll be able to do what you're looking to do within a year - I feel confident in that.

ok ran it for 5 hours straight last night, about 1/3 times it will flick back into SL Remote app and run as usual, the other 2/3 of the times the SL Remote looks as if it was frozen - if you try and change anything it kicks you back to the SL Selection / login screen - click connect to login and everything is zeroed out - you have to force quit the app and reload it then everything works fine - this was while running iteleport and itunes remote i nthe background.

There seems to be no fixed time on when it will do this - It could be 10 mins in a different app and SL remote would kick back in fine with no problems - it could be 10 seconds flicking to the dmx software to activate the blinders and SL Remote would drop out

I had 2 other Wireless connections from the ipad to computers and they did not drop out in 5 hours but SL remote proberbly dropped at least 20 times during the night.

any info I can give for bug fixing let me know

PS Router was an Airport extreme connected to the 2 laptops below

going to give it another shot tonight but ill use the droid tab to run the lights / itunes, I dont really want to cayy around 2 tablets!


the only feature requests I do want on SL Remote are follows

#1 have some sort of screen lock button so you can carry it around in busy areas and not be in fear of someone brushing past the screen and messing everything up - just like a quick lock / unlock button on the top bar near masters or something

#2 not sure if this is just me but when I make very fine adjustments on the faders its great when my finger is down on the touch screen but as I lift my finger up the fader can jump 1-2 notches in either direction - I know this is a touch screen issue across the board but maby a small bit of code to say after fader has been in position x for more than 0.8 sec it releases the move command


aside from that its a great app and makes my job a hell of a lot simpler, had more people talk to me about the ipad last night than about the band- spins people out that you can wirelessly mix

So am I!!! I've been looking for a solution like this to make me fully remote from the "FOH" which for me, is now always Side of stage.

We live in a new age, where we don't need to be stuck to a huge desk anymore.
