What is AirFader?

AirFader is tablet-friendly software designed specifically to control Yamaha digital consoles. It was created over 5 years ago as a Windows touch-screen application before the iPad even existed. Today, AirFader offers the use of Windows, Android, and Apple iPad devices - even all three the same time. AirFader for Windows works either by itself, or as a server which provides extremely fast sync times and extensive permission controls to android and iPad devices. You can use AirFader as an engineer's tool, or build a complete personal monitor mixing system without worrying about accidental changes to the main mix, or someone else's mix.

AirFader provides easy control of nearly all channel-based parameters including Head Amp, Phantom, Parametric EQ, Dynamics, and Mix Sends; plus Graphic EQ and even Output Bus Delay. Free "Lite" versions for android and iPad require AirFader for Windows to manage licensing, caching, and access control. This lets musicians use their own phones and tablets as Personal Monitor Mixers or even FOH controls. The "Pro" versions are standalone apps that provide mixing-based features for a single android device.

Microsoft Windows, $149.00
Features • Buy Now
The Server Edition allows you to connect any combination of Android and iPad devices to a Yamaha 01V96, LS9, or M7CL by using the Windows computer as a server. It is designed to be the core of a personal monitor mixing system. Since the remote client is free, musicians can even use their own devices without having to buy anything. This gives each musician control of their own mix (and ONLY their mix) and works with existing in-ear monitors, wedges, or headphone amps. Users just connect to the network, enter the server information, and go!

I'm amazed at how little lag there is in the connection process, and I am very pleased with the overall intuitive nature of the android remote.
