Hello everybody, this is my first post in this forum. I own a Mackie DL1608 and speak only a little of English (I'm spanish). Hope you can help me with this question (and future ones 8)).

Last gig, as usual, I made the sound for my band with my DL1608 and my IPad. Few minutes before beginning the show, one member turned on his IPad for controlling his monitor. By mistake, when initially synchronizing, he choose the snapshot from his IPad, not the one I actually made for this show. The result was, when we start playing, all the settings was changed. All the members (and me) play with inears so it was very complicated to notice that outside something were wrong  :-\.

The question is, is there any way to lock the current snapshot making impossible to be changed from another device except mine?

Forgive my bad English, I hope you could understand my request.

Thanks in advance.

Solution 1

Use the delay on the female vox rather than reverb

Solution 2

(I've only messed about with this in fun but it does work, try before you commit, though). If you can spare an Aux then use the recording matrix to send (for instance) Aux 6 (post fade) to the record output, through a reverb app you've installed on your docked iPad, then return it via the "iPad audio" channel.

Send the iPad audio to the male singer's monitor. *Under no circumstances send the iPad audio out on aux 6 (if that's the one you've patched to the reverb)*.

Cheers Torsten, exactly as I thought.

Hmmm, @Wynnd, are you a singer? A lot of us singers explicitly want reverb on our vocal monitors, especially for in-ear-monitoring. Gives better feedback on what we are doing - and gives us kind of a comfort blanket ;-) Singing with a dry in-ear signal feels a bit like singing in a completely dampened, "dead" room - creepy!

Of course, it's different if you sing with a classic monitor wedge on a sonically active stage with sufficient reflections - that may be enough to feel good with a "dry" monitor signal - especially if the feedback from the room gives you an additional reverb tail.

On the original poster's question: the reverb effects on the DL series are "send effects", i.e. all channels can send input to the reverb, which then processes the sum of all inputs. The output of this reverb then goes to the main LR output, and you can also enable it on your aux channels. But of course the reverb signal then contains the processed reverb from ALL signals that send input to the reverb.

If you had multiple reverbs (as on the DL32R), you could get around this by dedicating one reverb only to your egocentric lead singer (this means using a different reverb send for that singer) and having everybody else use the other one, but since your DL1608 only has one reverb, this isn't an option. So if your male singer wants reverb on his monitor, he'll have to live with the reverb signal of everyone else in his monitor.

Of course, you could also plug a separate reverb processor into the path from the DL1608 to the guy's monitor, so he has a dedicated reverb for his monitor, but I'd consider this a bit of overkill, especially in a pub setting...

Cheers,

Torsten

If you're in the market for something like this I suggest the original Freeplay for about $220 (SAM Ash ) At least it's a 150Watt RMS unit with a 8" speaker instead of a 6" $399 unknown. There are also many other units out there depending on your needs.

Best answer is to just take the effects out of the AUX channel.  Does a singer really need reverb in their monitor?  NO.  Save that for the FOH.

Thank you, Dapper Dan.  I 'should've' known that and that was part of the solution for me.. The Ipad Air is the household use ipad , the mini sits exclusively on the DL806..1st time I've tried to use both.....

when I use my Dl mixer at home it always automatically connects to my home W-Fi router because it knows the password.

Click on "settings" on your iPad and then click on Wi-Fi. On the right side of that Wi-Fi router's name you will see a little blue circle with an "i" in the middle...
click on that, and then click "Forget This Network". The iPad will then automatically choose the DL mixer's W-Fi router and not the home router.
At any time, you can click on the home W-Fi router and re-enter the password if you want to use the iPad on your home's internet.

Thank you for the clarification...
It IS very simple.... As I was testing at home, there were a couple of similarly named wifi signals around and the Ipad Air was defaulting back to the main home modem, with internet, in preference to my DL806 connected one that was wifi only.....Once I renamed the DL806 modem to a more unique name to make things easier, and opted to link to that one 'with no internet'..all went smooth.
