Master/My Fader V3 Wants and Speculation
« on: February 18, 2014, 10:23:06 PM »
I wish they had added the new adjustable slope HPFs and LPFs to all the input channel strips.

Oh, and I still want my monitor sends post-HPF post-EQ but pre-comp. Preferably switchable per channel like the Phonic and Behringer digital mixers.

What are yous guys still lookin' for? :)

Even though I don't own the dl I still wanted to look at the new features. But it appears that until it is loaded into the dl itself they don't show up in the app. Not sure exactly why mackie would do this. Some people want to try the app before they consider the mixer. Has anyone else updated the app and not the dl itself and been able to see the changes?

Apparently they haven't fixed the airplay bug. Open the app and airplay disappears again.

Why don't you put back the thread I started a month ago as Master Fader V3 wants and Speculation since it contains more challenging requests than you could ever hope for in V2.1? Put back the original title that you changed and make this thread what it is Master Fader/ Myfader 2.1 Commentary.

That thread dates from October 21, 2013:
http://cacophony.aspinock.com/index.php?topic=505.0
and the last post was November 24, 2013.

Now that we have V2.1 and some time has passed since we wrote all that why don't we see where everyone's priorities are now? If you posted a newer thread it should be here somewhere...

No new thread. My time flies when your having fun  :). The reason I started it early was for the benefit of the Mackie lurkers. Maybe some of the suggestions presented would be considered in their next release. I'm fairly certain that V3 features are pretty much closed for consideration at this time. Don't sell this forum short for input to their product, where else would they go to get suggestions with some experience supporting them. Mackie's Uservoice really! Yes we're only 0.001% if that of their customer base but we're pushing the envelope with this mixer. A quick perusal of my old thread shows that only your LPF, HPF request was satisfied with V2.1. At least change the title back to what it was. So for starters see  http://cacophony.aspinock.com/index.php?topic=505.0
Then let me add a bunch more FX functions. There should also be a Multichannel recorder/playback feature.  ;D A signal generator for setup. An RTA to go along with the GEQ/Parametric on output. It will never match an X32 and shouldn't since I believe the design philosophy was a KISS customer base. Oh yes work on that UI (User Interface) it sucks. This list should take them til V5.1 at which time they run out of steam as usual (Ala D8B).

Interesting to see what the top 10 are over at https://mackie.uservoice.com/forums/97035-dl-series :

#1 (1164 votes) - 16 channel recording and playback.
Yeh!

#2 (743 votes) - Intergrate iPad music playback controls
You can already do that with the iOS pull-up menu

#3 (658 votes) - RTA overlayed on of the GEQ
Yeh!

#4 (536 votes) - Android app
Not on my list but whatever

#5 (411 votes) - Small simple spectrum analysis over 31-band graphic EQ's
A Dup of #3 ?

#6 (353 votes) - A much better reverb please. Current one is almost unusable.
RTFM

#7 (279 votes) - MONO OUT for a single (1) sub with (2) stereo tops. Aux 6? Not same as crossover idea. Just MONO.
Could do both with the new V2.1 HPFs and LPFs on every output :)

#8 (267 votes) - Add virtual subgroups to allow group processing of channels
Why not?

#9 (195 votes) - Aux Sends switchable PER CHANNEL between Pre or Post CHANNEL EQ /DSP
Yeh!

#10 (184 votes) - DCA Groups
Why not?

#11 (174) - Multitrack recording
A Dup of #1

#12 (173 votes) - custom label aux sends
Not a bad idea

My biggest reguest would be seperate eq for the mains and or auxes
Combine the channel faders yes but the output faders and eq should be apart
At the moment i need to mix on two layers when dealing with difficult rooms

I'm thinking he wants to be able to have 2 eqs per individual channel. One eq that goes to the mains, and one for the monitors. I can do this with my rack by assigning 1 input to two channels. You can do this with the dl too by using a splitter cable and plugging 1 mic/line into 2 inputs. This way you use two channels. One for mains, one for mons. Each with its own eq. Problem is that your 16 channel board become an 8.

Could be but he wasn't clear. I'd love that and it follows along with their present ability to use separate pans and mutes on the auxes - but I suspect it would confuse the heck out of most of the target market users x( :lol: .
