Although no special settings are required, we recommend that you configure security settings, such as WPA, to prevent any outside intrusion into the network. Network setting for the RIVAGE PM system

  1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network port of the RIVAGE PM system to the Wi-Fi access point. If you plan to connect it to a legacy access point that does not feature the AUTO-MDIX function, you will need to use a cross cable. Since many newer device models support the AUTO-MDIX function, you will be able to use either a straight cable or a cross cable.
  2. Make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected to the LAN port of the Wi-Fi device. (Do not connect the cable to the WAN port.)
  3. Open the SETUP screen on the RIVAGE PM system.
  4. Touch the NETWORK popup button in the CONSOLE STATUS field to open the NETWORK screen.
  5. On the FOR STAGEMIX tab, set the STAGEMIX CONNECTIVITY to ENABLE, and then specify the IP address in the IP address segment for the Wi-Fi access point.
  6. On the MISC tab in the NETWORK screen, select “EDITOR/STAGEMIX” or “STAGEMIX ONLY” for the COMMUNICATION QUALITY of the NETWORK connector for StageMix. When using the RIVAGE PM Editor and StageMix in the same NETWORK connector, select “EDITOR/STAGEMIX.” NOTE When using only StageMix, select the “STAGEMIX ONLY” option to reduce the communication load. When selecting the “EDITOR/STAGEMIX” option, which results in greater communication load and slower performance of StageMix, enable IGMP Snooping on the Wi-Fi device. Network switching You can connect to a network using a wired connection in addition to a wireless connection. A Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter (or a USB- C-USB adapter) and a USB Ethernet Adapter are required to use a wired connection. You can switch between a wireless and wired connection when offline. 4 RIVAGE PM StageMix User Guide CONTENTS Setup Wi-Fi setting on your iPad Use DHCP or a fixed IP address to set up your iPad. Using DHCP DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a network protocol that enables the server to automatically assign an IP address to the devices. Follow the steps below to set up the iPad using DHCP.

CONTENTS Troubleshooting Troubleshooting ■ DHCP server setup of the wireless access point/router 1 Use a web browser to access the web administrator page for your wireless access point or router. 2 Enable the wireless access point’s DHCP feature. 3 Configure the range of addresses that the DHCP feature will assign to connected devices. 4 Confirm that the IP address assigned to the RIVAGE PM system is outside the range of IP addresses that the DHCP feature will assign to connected devices. If it is within this range, change the IP address of the system. (For example, if the IP address for the RIVAGE PM system is 192.168.1.2, set the DHCP feature to assign an address between 192.168.1.3 and 192.168.1.128.) NOTE Not all wireless access points support a DHCP server feature. If yours does not, assign an IP address manually to the iPad. ■ If the RIVAGE PM system is not displayed in the SELECT MIXER screen If your wireless access point’s IGMP snooping feature is enabled, StageMix may not be able to find the system. Disable your wireless access point’s IGMP snooping feature and try again. Set the STAGEMIX CONNECTIVITY to ENABLE on the FOR STAGEMIX tab in the NETWORK screen. Check and try the firmware update for the Wi-Fi device. ■ If a “cannot connect to the Internet” message is displayed When you select a wireless network using your iPad, the iPad may try to access the Internet. If your wireless access point cannot connect to the Internet, a “cannot connect to the Internet” message may be displayed on the iPad, and StageMix may not be able to connect to the RIVAGE PM system. An Internet connection is not needed to connect StageMix to the RIVAGE PM system. However, you may need to change the settings on your wireless access point so that this message is no longer displayed. If this message is displayed, typically you will need to disable your wireless access point’s “redirect feature”. For details, refer to your device’s operating instructions or contact the manufacturer. ■ If you cannot move four or more faders at the same time If the Multitasking Gestures setting of your iPad is turned on, you may not be able to move four or more faders in StageMix at the same time. When using StageMix, be sure to turn the Multitasking Gestures feature off. 1 Open the Settings screen on the iPad. 2 Tap [General] and then turn [Multitasking Gestures] off. ■ If you cannot move three or more faders at the same time If the Zoom feature in the Accessibility settings of your iPad is turned on, you may not be able to move three or more faders in StageMix at the same time. When using StageMix, be sure to turn the Zoom feature off. 1 Open the Settings screen on the iPad. 2 Tap [General] → [Accessibility] and then turn [Zoom] off. ■ If the RTA graph is not displayed When you open the EQ screen, GEQ screen, or PEQ screen for the first time, a message appears asking whether you want to use the iPad mic for the Real-Time Analyzer. If you tap “Don’t Allow,” the RTA graph will not be displayed in the future. If you want to display the RTA graph later, open the iOS Settings screen, select Privacy → Microphone, and then turn StageMix on. ■ If the StageMix performance is too slow When selecting the “EDITOR/STAGEMIX” option for the COMMUNICATION QUALITY of the NETWORK connector for StageMix, which results in greater communication load and slower performance of StageMix, enable IGMP Snooping on the Wi-Fi device.
