Mixer/App combination?

Hi Guys,
I play solo. Just acoustic guitar, backing tracks(via iPad) and a microphone. I normally run my cables into a small behringer mixer...then use the main out to go to the house desk. If i need to adjust volumes, normally its not a problem as my mixer is within arms reach.
My question is...should my mixer need to be further away from me on the odd occasion, does anybody know a budget solution where I could control my volumes solely from my iPad using some kind of app?
My first presumption would be that I need some kind of digital mixer(don't really want to go there as quite expensive just to use on the odd occasion). So secondly is there some kind of converter/adapter I could take from my mixer to input to the iPad. Also what 'App' is useful for this function?
To clarify...would like to control volumes of my mic, backing tracks, and guitar through some form of 'App'.
Hope this all makes sense and thanks in advance.

Not really, audio interfaces with built in mixers controllable from a pad (RME or MOTU) are more expensive than just getting a low end digital mixer like the Behringer Air XR12, which is about £250 albeit extremely powerful.

LOL regarding football question Bungle. Anyway...I have looked more into the behringer air mixer and it looks just the job. Exactly what I need. I didnt realise there was a digital mixer at that pricepoint. I just need to find some more info out about the software(which I will start a new thread) and if the replies come back positive then it could be on my 'to buy' list. Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction Bungle. Much appreciated.
