Can I build a Personal Monitor Mixing System with AirFader?

If you are looking for a Pesonal Monitor Mixing System for your church, AirFader is the perfect solution. If you already have monitors and a Yamaha LS9 or M7CL console, all you need is a Microsoft Windows computer, a wireless network, and some android or iPad tablets. You could be running in as little as an hour without running a single cable. If you're starting from scratch, AirFader will scale with you from a single mix up to your console's maximum outputs.


  • Works with floor wedges, headphone amplifiers, in-ear transmitters, or any combination (in stereo and mono mode).
  • Has no channel limits per-station. No need to combine instruments into 8 or 16 sub-groups or matrixes.
  • Gives each station a custom fader layer. Each musician can build a page with just their favorite channels, and easily switch to see all channels.
  • Has simple but flexible permission controls. Limit which mixes, parameters, and even channels that a musician can control.
  • Requires no specialized equipment, cards, protocols or cables. Just tablets and a wireless network.
  • Is licensed per-server. Musicians can bring their own devices and install AirFader client for free.
  • Allows the Front of House or Monitor Engineer to help musicians adjust mixes from the console.

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.
