One of the biggest enhancements for the AudioBox 1818VSL is that support has been added for AB1818VSL Remote for iPad. With this free app, you can control virtually every parameter in Virtual StudioLive for AudioBox 1818VSL from an iPad, including volume, pan, aux sends, FX buses, and Fat Channel parameters.

In the studio, manage the monitor mixes from your iPad while dedicating your computer screen to a DAW.
