Nevermind me

  1. Hey all,

    I've recently become aware of this Audiofusion™. They are offering wireless IEM system that uses your (currently) iOS (soon to include android) mobile phone as the headphone amp/output and controller. All the audio is streamed over wifi and looks to be a pretty promising solution. A house of worship muso showed him using it in practice and it worked well without any noticeable latency.

    Just wondering if anyone has tried it or something similar?

    there have been a few threads about this one.

    the main obstacle is digital latency, anything more than like 4ms is a no-go and we suspiciously see zero info about that spec on the website. also, the testimonials all seem to be from newbie musicians discovering the difference between IEM systems and regular wedges, nothing about how this compares to actual pro IEM systems.

    it is a sexy idea, it just may not be ready for prime time.

    Not really hot to the idea to have a computer on stage

    these days stages are full of computers (and tablets and phones), that ship sailed a while ago.

    hell, new digital mixers are nothing but computers with some ins and outs bolted on.

    It's not because a digital mixer is running on DSP that it qualifies as a computer. Your car is also full of DSP and it's not a computer.

    Seems like you're overdue on some basic reading.

    If your car was built after 2010 or so, it probably is a computer.

    Did you know an abacus is a computer? So is a slide-rule.

    Don’t a lot of modern digital boards actually run on some form of Linux?

    Yes, or C/C++ firmware. :)
    You're basically replacing the existing firmware (technically the OS, but not an operating system in the manner we look at Windoze, Nix or derivatives like iOS) when you do an upgrade.
