Supported Mixing Consoles

This list gives an overview over the mixing consoles that are supported for faderstart, remote control etc. It also gives some configuration hints for some models.

Note that even if your console is not supported directly, it might still be possible to use some sort of generic (USB) remote device to interface between the fader start function of the console and mAirList.

Important: Interfaces listed here are not available in all mAirList editions. Please check the feature matrix to see which interfaces are actually supported by your particular mAirList license/edition.


Series 52 (All models - RX2, SX2, 52/TX, 52/MX, 52/SX, 52/RX, etc.)

Status: supported

TCP/IP or serial port connection via DHD External Control Protocol (ECP).

From DHD Firmware 8.x, Ember+ protocol can be used simultaneously for additional functionality, e.g. setting Global Labels from a script.


Status: supported

Compatible with Series 52 for the most part. Availability of TCP/IP depends on the core module version. For older cores use serial port instead.


Status: limited support

Serial port only. Uses a subset of the RM4200D/52 packets, with a slightly different serial protocol. Set correct console type in DHD remote control configuration.


Status: limited support, since v6.1.5

Uses an entirely different protocol than the other DHD products. Faderstart and PFL control supported.


All supported Lawo (hardware) consoles use the SAS protocol (sometimes called “RAS protocol” or “diamond protocol”) via serial port or via TCP/IP. JADE Studio uses Ember+ protocol.


Status: supported


Status: supported

crystal, crystal v2 (2014), crystal clear

Status: supported


Status: supported

R3LAY VRX (formerly JADE Studio)

Not a hardware mixing console but a software solution. Provides 8 GPIOs over Ember+.

Status: Supported from mAirList 5.1 build 2703

Note: libember_slim.dll is packaged with mAirList but requires Visual C++ 2013 runtimes:



Status: supported, since v6.1


Status: supported, since v5.0
