LS9 StageMix User Guide
Welcome:
Thank you for downloading the "LS9 StageMix" iPad app for the Yamaha LS9-16 and
LS9-32 digital mixing consoles.
StageMix provides remote control of LS9 functions via a simple, intuitive
graphical interface from anywhere within wireless range. The software has
been specifically designed to allow engineers to adjust monitor mixes from
the performers' positions on stage, directly controlling mix parameters via the
iPad rather than having to rely on verbal directions to a second engineer.
The result is better mixes in less time: a huge advantage during high-pressure
pre-show setup.
StageMix does not provide remote control of all LS9
parameters, but is focused on the requirements for adjusting monitor mixes on
stage.

Practically, this could result in more accurate level metering with the StageMix app. Also, with 802.11n being a new standard, it is less prone to interference from other wireless networks.
