Actual Helix 3.0 news (kind of) in Helix Posted October 22, 2020 9 hours ago, SaschaFranck said: I have been using a tablet or a smartphone as an IEM remote mixer regularly (roughly as in "on almost every other gig that option is available") for around 5 years by now. On both my tablet and phone, the most relevant apps are already installed, so all it takes is a login and *boom*, there we go. Most FOH dudes are happy, too, as they don't have to take care of monitoring wishes anymore. I even use these things outside of the IEM realm, it's just too comfortable to pass on. And because I'm already accustomed to these things, I'm pretty sure people would just love it to go along with their their modelers. Cool, yea it's great, for sure. I come from a big city but have lived in a smaller town for the past couple decades... things are likely a little different for me now LoL. remote mixing is one thing though - and takes someone with live sound mixing skills (not all that comon). But having a guitarist and/or bassist have their own tablet for their owns sounds... I can just see it now... it'll look more and more like some bizarre scifi movie. and I'd love to see things like that, personally! I just will be very surprised to see bands and venues with that going on very much. Still my biggest concern is knocking over the stand with the tablet attached... just because I often move around a lot when I play, so it's a hazard that scares me. With the drummer I worked with, he kept the tablet in his duffel bag next to his kit in a safe place, and would put it on a stool beside him for a track or two in soundcheck but would leave it put away the rest of the time... but it's very possible he didn't have a good stand for his iPad that would work well. Interesting ideas in this thread - will be fun to watch, and eventually take part, in these changes over the coming years!
