DL1608/DL806/DL32R/ProDX Mixers / Re: Importing Multitracks to DL32R

I've thought about using an actual PC based DAW to show them, but we have 1-1 iPads for the grades I am teaching, so I would love something they could interact with on there. There may be better options on the iPad too, I just started with what I knew.

If you could send me some songs you've recorded on the DL32R, that would be great!

We keep our DL1608's around as our "oh shit" mixers in case anything goes wrong with our Soundcraft Si consoles (which have become our standard). I use them for grab&go gigs, more often in the winter than this time of year especially now that I have an Expression 1 that packs very small. I just work better & faster with physical faders, if the Axis had come out a couple of years earlier I might have gone that route (still might eventually, who knows?).

This is my busiest year every (been hearing that from a LOT of other engineers) & it feels good to have so many options among modern consoles!

In the spirit of the thread: I just turned 47 & fully plan on continuing this business for at least another 20 years, I just LOVE mixing bands and helping make a scene happen!

Wonder if you can import an OGG into Audacity, or any mulititrack, then export into a file the DL32R will handle?

You would probably be best off not just using the DL32R but to add a PC or Windows machine any any DAW software.  Then you could demonstrate this on a larger screen.

If you need a DL32R multitrack, I can send you one of my band covering a song at rehearsal a show, it'll be 5 to 7 pieces spread across 12-20 tracks..

I updated to 4.6.1  on my iPad Pro and that's all what was needed I use the DL32 r and as soon as I Wi-Fi connected  the IPad to the DL32  there was no firmware up date just updated Master fader on the iPad
It says on my IPad Mackie Master Fader version 4.6.1 on the device controller screen opened by the cog shaped icon top right on Mater Fader
  not sure if this helps...

DL1608/DL806/DL32R/ProDX Mixers / Firmware update
« Last post by Cobra Jet on August 06, 2017, 12:06:04 AM »
I posted this under the update topic, not sure if that was right

I installed 4.6.1 today and expected to be prompted for a firmware update but I was not. Is there a way to check if a firmware update is needed? How do I tell whet firmware I have?

I think the last file I tried was an interleaved wav at 48kHz, but the DL32R still didn't let my play it.

This is the file I tried: https://www.dropbox.com/s/25xblhroqxy24rv/OneMinuteSmile480032bit.wav?dl=0  (81.5MB)
(originally from http://www.cambridge-mt.com/ms-mtk.htm)

DL1608/DL806/DL32R/ProDX Mixers / Importing Multitracks to DL32R

I want to use my MackieDL32R in my classroom to teach about mixing. I have found many different places online to download multi-track versions of songs to practice mixing and producing in a computer program like Logic, but when I put those files onto my external hard drive for my DL32R, it can't play them back. 

Is there a way to do this?  What specific format does the DL32R need in order to read a wav file on the hard drive?

Obviously I can still have them mix recordings I've made through the DL32R, but I would love to get a variety of styles.

More specifically into what I've tried:
I've downloaded some of the multitrack recordings from http://www.cambridge-mt.com/ms-mtk.htm  I tossed all of the separate wavs into a folder, and put it on the hard drive that I plug into the DL32R.  The song showed up in the list on MasterFader, but playing it was not an option.
Next I loaded all of the wavs into Audacity, and exported it as a single multitrack wav.  I still got the same result when I tried to play it through the DL32R.  Are there other formatting things that I try to make this work?
