It's a tough life.

When I try to use the drive rack or ring out the system the people in the club just totally freak out.
Even when I warn them it's coming and it will only take a few moments of time.

It really is rare I have any feedback issues, all IEMs on stage and I use the same 6-8 presets regularly. Big problem is a new room or when I'm trying to clean up vocals.  As singers voices get tired, they sometimes don't project enough and I'm riding the faders a bit to compensate..... Or,  I'm bored and just playing around with effects and eq.

Funny thing is I have actually fallen asleep while mixing in the wee hours of the night.  Tip, when your real tired keep your fingers OFF the faders.

I've had that happen, too. My assistant told me that I fell asleep standing up (which I knew), but that I kept right on mixing, including song-specific effects. That only happened once, and I never let it happen again.

Neither works well unless you can identify the offending frequency.
That's where my biggest problem is, it sometimes takes a while for me to find
the problem since it can be on any of many different channels

I've got an app on my iphone called HZ Detector.  It will identify the exact frequency.  There is probably an Android version or similar app.

Thanks for the tip. I just checked, and it's only available for iPhone.

Hi Michael,

I too have Hz.

Since I have an Iphone, I was able to install the app.
Then load it to Itunes, and from there load it to the Ipads.

Mostly I use the StudioSixDigital apps.

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

I have it on my iPhone. Might be better not to put it on the iPad then you can see the hz on the phone and make the adjustment on the pad without switching apps.

I only wish it would tell me which mic was doing it too, since it could be one of sixteen. 🎶

If I have the same app, it doesn't do much other then show the frequency it "hears". There are no instructions or options to it.

It all seems to have gone quite with regards to what might be coming next or if indeed it is coming?! Just looking over uservoice there are a few standout features that have been there for a while including the RTA overlays on the output EQ, copy and pasting of channels, and an update of the effects. BenO, I don't suppose you can infer one way or the other if we might see a pre-Christmas update?

Good day.

If the RTA spectrum analyzer is visible when using the equilizador the time to correct the feedback will almost zero, without being necessary to use another device and a third party software.

Like the RTA suggestion.  I'm hoping for split screen functionality on the ipad Pro.  There are lots of times that I wanted to be able to look at two lines of 8 channels without having to scroll sideways.

I wouldn't count on nov. of this year. I think if this was in the works for this year at all we would have heard
some rumblings about it already and possibly some beta test requested

Hope I'm wrong....but doubt it.

If the MF were only tied to the DL1608 I could see a EOL (end of life) issue since the DL1608 has been around for over 3 years. The DL32 has only been around for a year. Hopefully there is some life left in it. Maybe they're all tied up with their boom box.  ;D
P.S. their Beta test was a joke the last time round, best not to have one again.
