So does this mean there may be a slight delay in the "End of February" update  ;D

I sure wouldn't bet against it. I am however, keeping hope alive that they will prove me wrong ... I have a gig on the 24th and would sure love to have it by then!!

Me too, actually the 29th but close enough to hope they'll extract the digit.

BTW, cheers RR, good job. Do you think BenO will contribute  :angel:

He  was down to popping in every two weeks or so towards the end so no, not likely to see him I'd think? He's probably hard at work getting V1.4 out. I think last he said it would be a couple weeks late so any day now :) .

Feeling slightly mischievous I've just emailed Mackie Tech Support asking for an update on MF 1.4 and My fader  >:D perhaps if we all do that every time we have a query they'll get fed up an reinstate the forums  :eek:

Well in theory this would be the week ....if you go by BenO's "a couple more weeks" I hope they stay true to it and keep putting out updates but either way I know right now Jerry Lee can't stop laughing and saying I told you so to every random stranger he walks by  :lol:

Heh, I just noticed that the "forum" link on Mackie now gives us that bit of news… yesterday it was broken & I posted a (slightly mean) thing in the Facebook forum, guess it got heard.

Just kind of Errks  me that they were flashing the thing around at Namm so much made it seem like it was a done deal to every one that viewed it there then dropped the big it will be ready by the end of Feb and the only thing they did that was on the list of things people want is the channel ID pic save..... Some one on the forum dropped a pic view of the master fader compressor / Gate screen last fall that some one had accidentally slipped and left a Vintage / Modern tab on it so they've been working on that forever..... If this is taking so long because like Ben said they need to initiate some code to start working on other things that we need done great I can accept that I guess just would think it would include more then the fluff we already know is coming...man I need at least sub groups

If it takes this long for a "simple" update, do you think there will be any/many more?
Aren't they more likely working on a replacement product already?

I'm actually an EE and programmer in real life and can tell you that syncing pictorial channel labels between multiple iDevices connected to the DL1608 is not easy. OTOH many of the things we want are easier than that - if they are going to do channel linking and pre-comp auxes those changes should be relatively easy to do :) . Some change requests like reducing the iPad channel by 10 db or moving the mute buttons are trivial to do in comparison...

When they crack this "nut" then perhaps we'll see minor upgrades more often.
As I've said before, I'm very happy with it as is.
What they've done is awesome, I could never have written any of it in "basic" lol - showing my age!
Maybe we need to send them more love and encouragement to ensure continued interest in the DL?
The older I get, the better I was!
