Yamaha Stagemix software for the M7CL iPad app was recently installed into Chicago concert venue Viper Alley.
Located in Lincolnshire, Illinois, the venue is the brainchild of Scott Greenberg, creator of the Wit, a Chicago boutique hotel. Viper Alley opened in early March with American Idol winner Lee DeWyze performing for two hundred online raffle ticket winners.
The club also features NEXO loudspeakers in an installation was completed by Gand Sound Installations (Glenview, Illinois).
StageMix is an application for the Apple iPad that allows remote control of the Yamaha M7CL digital console’s mix functions via a simple, intuitive graphic interface from anywhere within wireless range.
The application enables an engineer to set up monitor mixes from a performer’s position on stage directly controlling mix parameters via the iPad.
Controllable parameters implemented in StageMix include Sends on Faders, Input Channel Faders, Input Channel On/Off, Input Channel Parametric EQs, Input Channel Cue, Mix Master Faders, Mix Bus On/Off, Mix Bus Parametric EQs, Mix Bus Cue, Last Cue/Mix Cue Mode, and Clear All Cues.
“The new iPad app for the M7CL-48 allows me to adjust monitor mixes from onstage while the band is playing, and walk the room to adjust the various zones in the concert seating area, ensuring that everyone hears what they came for,” states Aaron Patkin of Gand Sound Installations.
Upcoming acts at Viper Alley include Victor Wooten and Stanley Clarke, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Johnny Winter.
