Lives for gear

Reaper recently added a web control feature that allows you to control it through a connected device such as smart phone or tablet, through Wi-Fi. To this point the functionality is being used in simple ways, such as remote control of the transport, simple level changes, etc. But it's pretty cool to use my iPhone to start and stop Reaper for playback and recording, etc.

If I understand it correctly the underlying capability is there for much more sophisticated uses, it just requires the front end. Knowing the Reaper user base, I'm guessing there will be people coming up with things like external control for Cue Mix and other capabilities before long.

Do any DAWs offer a similar control app? I'd love to be able to assign an aux mix to a controller app and let the performers control their own headphone mix. Making headphone mixes for 4-8 people is pain in the ass. I'd rather not invest a couple grand into a digital mixer or specialized cue system if possible.
