Unfortunately, Mira is not quite where I need it to be for my setup. So, I am going back to Lemur. Did anyone find out a way to connect the iPad to a PC (Mac pro in my case) without using an ad-hoc connection (hey, it is 2013 and I need the internet at all times ...)? In my setup I switch tracks in my DAW and upon track change a lot of gui items have to be updated (hidden, renamed, menu items changes, etc.). It works all, but the more OSC messages I send at the same time, the more data gets lost. If it were some value chages of a fader, there wouldn't be so much of a problem for me ... but when you update a menu or a couple of names on pads and only the first 4 names get transmitted, it really sucks! ;-)
This must be due to wifi connection. The only other possible explanation left would be my old iPad 1, but I don't think that is the bottle neck here, as other people described the same problems.
I have read different theories about how to make it work better:
- separate wifi router for the iPad
- MyWi USB tethering (I have it, but it doesn't work - shows 0 connections ...)
- getting a newer iPad (I am on iPad 1, but I don't know if that will solve any of these issues)
- using fixed IP adresses
I am anything, but a network guru, so I would highly appreciate any advice on how you guys made it work.
