I too wonder what the option for this is. Im using the Stagescape primarily in an open mic situation where the act is changing every 15 - 20 minutes, often with some significant set up time...being able to cue house sound between acts would be great. I have an ipod set up to the 3mm aux in on the head unit, but I'm running sound from front of house and head unit is near stage....major PIA.

good to hear. Unfortunately I was not provided any manuals etc when this rig was installed. Is there a schematic or instructions for utilizing the airport express in this manner somewhere?

Nope. I just have mine configured as follows. 

 

For anyone else who is using the airport, make sure you have it set to DHPC/NAT mode if you do not have an internet connection. 

Then I just go to system > wifi and ensure that is says ethernet connected. 

Then go to your iphone or ipad and choose your airport express. 

 

Then bring up a song under music and there's a little square with a triangle on the lower right of the screen on the iphone or ipad or ipod. Click that and choose your airport express. 

Then you should also see a little ipod on the screen of the stagescape as well. I can't remember how I got that there. But you also need an 1/8" cable going from the back of your airport express into the aux in on the stagescape. 

Hope that helps.

Unfortunately, when I've tried this in the past (at rehearsals, fortunately), I've experienced momentary dropouts of the music. For that reason, I'm currently just running either directly from the iPad headphone jack to 2 inputs on the M20d or directly from my laptop via the USB cable. Still not exactly sure why the momentary music dropouts are occuring, but, don't want to chance it in a "live" situation, at this point...sure would be more convenient though...
