DL1608/DL806/DL32R/ProDX Mixers / Re: DL16S/32S "Offical Info from Mackie"

Well another month bites the dust, apparently this time the head Grinch stole the code for V5.1 MF. So can we officially declare V5.1 as vaporware? I do remember Mackie stating that the release should be perfect and without issues. That of course is their understanding of software development since perfect will never happen.

Thinking that anything will happen the week of Christmas or next is too much. Wait for NAMM; I'm going and will be happy to talk to the folks at LOUD to see if more will be revealed or if they're demoing 5.1.

So your saying that she is more verbose and when you can get a word in edgewise you made it count  :). The principle here I ran across in one of my old calculus texts called "Path of least resistance". Quite common in underachievers in software (management classification of employees). What Mackie needs are overachievers that they can hold on to. To make it all work you need a dedicated visionary in management as long as he doesn't loose sight of budgets like Greg Mackie.

I've always expected that programming choices were more likely the result of familiarity with the software.  Could be wrong, but if it's a big change, one has to hire in experts.  My Wife is pretty much totally comfortable with HTML, but it eludes me.  (And when we met in College, I was probably the better programmer, but she generated code faster.  (And a lot more of it.  Her programs always ran slower and her card stacks were always thicker.) )

What are we really waiting for in V5.1? According to Mackie for a major release in their own words:

"Features to be added in Future Master Fader 5.x Updates (including, but not limited to):
      Support for the DL806, DL1608, DL32R and DC16
      Support for macOS and Windows
      Support for Import/Export"

It's a short list with some additions to FX and the UI and a longer list of UI bugs. My assessment of V5.x stands* as before "to little to late". V5.1 will hopefully add two more platforms and four DL's to the list, the only real improvement. They could have had this with a lot less drama had BenO and even Uli taken my advise four years ago to forget Mandolin and OSC and take on HTML5 like Soundcraft in their Ui series. Soundcraft did buy the rights from SM PRO audio an Australian company that had the right vision. Software maintenance cost will be a lot higher with what Mackie and Behringer chose.

Outside of sometimes needing to clean internal cable connections, people seem to really like their DL32Rs.
Wynnd that's called poor engineering since they've had this problem for generations dating back to the analog 1604. Why does no one else have this issue?

Actually, the ribbon cable issues started with the 8 Bus boards. That would include the 24.8 and the 32.8 recording boards as well as the SR40.8 and SR52.8 live boards. The original CR1604 was pretty solid. When they came out with the first 1604VLZ series is when the problems began for the 16 channel boards.

thanks. Downloading Catalina as we speak as Avid released their compatible Pro Tools version today.

Sorry you sold the 1608, but hopefully you've upgraded to something that works better for your needs.
