StageMix provides remote control of M7CL 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 M7CL parameters, but is focused on the requirements for adjusting monitor mixes on stage.
The main page of the StageMix is called the "Mixer" window. It shows the EQ curve, CUE and ON buttons, fader and level meters, and channel names for eight adjacent channels. Across the top of the screen, all Input, Mix and Matrix level meters and faders are displayed in blocks of eight. This is the "Navigation/Meter Bridge". Press any of these blocks to select which channels are viewed in the fader strips below.
Sends On Faders
The colour of this button matches those used on the M7CL console. [CUE] and [ON] buttons appear below, allowing the currently active Mix or Matrix bus to be Cued and turned On/Off.
One band of EQ can be adjusted at a time. Press one of the green circles to select the band, and it will be highlighted yellow. EQ bands in StageMix are labelled as follows:
- HP = HPF (input channels only).
- 1 = Low Band.
- 2 = Low-Mid Band.

- 4 = High Band.
