One of the most exciting aspects of iLive is its ability to configure the system offline before the show, check and edit show files from guest engineers, and control the mix live using one or more PC or MAC laptops or touch tablets running iLive Editor. iLive Editor software is available free of charge and gives complete wired or wireless control of the iLive system using standard TCP/IP Ethernet.
The laptop can be used at the same time as or instead of the Surface providing a compact alternative for discrete mixing, and the ability to carry out different tasks at the same time. For example, monitors can be tweaked on stage using a wireless laptop while another engineer runs the FOH sound check from the Surface. Custom strips are provided to create a personal, ‘virtual surface’ layout on Editor.
