  • Prepare for the Show, Anytime, Anywhere

    With a SoundGrid-compatible audio interface and server, you can mix audio in your hotel room on a system that fits in a backpack—then expand the same system at the live venue with more I/O, servers, and interfaces. Or use the free eMotion LV1 Session Editor to configure your session’s parameters without audio, using any laptop or desktop without need for an I/O or server.

    Prepare for the Show, Anytime, Anywhere
  • Build a Super System

    Connect multiple eMotion LV1 mixers to the same network switch, and share any I/O devices—stageboxes, DAWs, computer drivers—as well as tracks, synths, etc. among multiple LV1 systems. No signal splitting required: LV1s can send your sources from the stage to multiple destinations simultaneously, with separate gain control for each engineer.

    Build a Super System

    MyMon gives up to 10 performers detailed control over monitor mixes, via their mobile devices. MyFOH controls the LV1 over wi-fi, for shaping a live mix from anywhere in a venue. Both are free, and iOS/Android compatible.
