StudioLive RM Series Launch Demonstration
Now there cooking w gas. The coolest thing in live sound since the portable speaker is the tablet control IMHO. The metering just sucked on the gui for the SL, again IMHO I dont was insult anyone who has one, but not having a gr meter on a compressor is a lame move. I love it tho, it looks like they really did they're homework. Touchscreen will replace the mouse soon. I can't wait till I can just draw in my edits on the screen, no archaic cmd cntrl g shft f1 style keyboard shortcuts. While i still think ill always wanna have some for of hardware fader and knobs, there's no reason digital can't be just as fast and accessable as an analog board. It's pretty insane to think you can fit such a powerful live rig in a guitar case! Awsomeness
Ummmm, I'm not sure what you mean.
If you mean the first generation SL Remote app, that's true, they were relying on you having eyes on the board for visual feedback. I would never walk away from the mixer with the iPad anyway, until I had the gain structure where I wanted it - since you couldn't adjust the channel gain wirelessly. After that it's all fine-tuning (with my ears) anyway. The AI version of SL Remote took care of the metering problem and put it right where you'd want it in the iPad app for the current mixers.
And all versions of the physical SL have GR metering galore for all the dynamics. One channel at a time, or all inputs simultaneously. 13-segment LED ladders are not necessarily beautiful, but they're perfectly functional.
Glad they fixed it, I've only used the first gen. Ive never worked w anything that had remote controllable pres so I'm always at the board for that. The physical metering on the board was always adequate (again talking about first gen) the way they incorporated the EQ was horrible I thought, trying to decipher all those little dash marks was tough, same for things like compression ratio and attack release, basically any non moving readout type things were tough to decipher on the physical board, but w a laptop and the iPad it makes up for it. Layout wise I think a & h qu series is more tactile, but it's also got touch screen, and remote pres, so they had more real estate.
