Playing music from PC with that has X Air Edit installed.

If using the X Air Edit on a PC in the FOH, is it possible to play an mp3 file from the same pc and have it come into one of the channels? Or do I have to use a long cable from the computer's line out or headphone jack to connect it to one of the inputs on the XR18?

Re: Playing music from PC with that has X Air Edit installed.

Similarly to headphone monitoring you need a wired link o, again, a separate wireless link of some sort. If it is just background/break music then you can get away with either a Bluetooth receiver at the mixer end or some other Wifi audio streaming device. These usually cause somewhat of a delay so can't be used for music that you want to use as backing tracks whilst you play live. if you have an XR12/16 rather than an XR18 then you can play .wav files directly from a USB stick plugged into the USB slot on the mixer controlled remotely from the app.
