Here's a video showing slow response times with a iPad 3

that's exactly what mine is doing. (and yeah, no lagging on the "vintage" EQ setting.)

Wow - the tracking for the modern EQ really got broken with MF3. I think its not just a lag. It seems to track slightly ahead of where your finger is, so if you move your finger you have to stop before you really want it, because it will keep going. I have already saved most of the EQs that I need which is a good thing, because it is a PIA to make a change on the fly with this. I was planning to pick up a couple of new vocal mics for xmas and now I wish I had held off on MF update until I have the new mics dialed in.

Other than that, the response time seems OK. It still takes several seconds for MF to synch if I swipe to an RTA app and then back to MF. I dont know why MF cant just synch in the background when another app has the screen

Nearly everything in MF3 is slow/laggy (iPad3/iOS8.1.1) the faders seem ok but selecting a button (solo/mute etc) or eq page or WHY takes around half a second where before it was virtual instant. I don't want to put MF3 on my iPad2/iOS7 in case I have trouble reverting, I have a gig next week where I'll need it. I have had the V3 firmware on the DL just to see if it made a difference. I have reverted back to V2 for the moment, I'll play with MF3 for a few days and then restore the iPad from a pre update backup, hopefully that will restore MF2 for the moment. Shame I can't revert to iOS7 (the iPad3 was on iOS6 and I tried unsuccessfully to upgrade it to 7.1.2, when that failed I had no choice but to go with iOS8). Other stuff on iOS8 seems fine though I haven't done any in depth testing yet.

Is it possible since MF 3 has so many more features and or background processes, that itís requiring more CPU time to run and slowing down the iPad?

Hopefully it's something stupid like leaving the debug switch enabled when they compiled the PUBLIC BETA or did this magically turn into a final release when I wasn't looking? There is only one background process I'm aware of and that is recording which has been there all along.

What about the "MackApple" combination? MF and iOS?

Isn't that called a McIntosh? :) Don't get me started on the Fruit. The attempted switch to a real multitasking OS didn't quite make it in iOS 8. So who knows what state that's in. The changes for developers amounted to about 4000 API's either changed, new or discontinued. So App developers all had to go over their code again to catch all the gotchas. Oh what fun it is to ride the Apple code malaise... ;) I'm working on that day job replacement.

WK: Thanks for the input. I used to call them Macintoy Laughtops. I really do like Macs, honestly.  :angel:

Actually I think your song writing/jingles composition skills are coming along just fine.  ;)

My humblest apologies to Mac owners everywhere!  8) I really do mean that.

that was my guess too, that my ipad 3 was just not enough for it, until a friend showed me his ipad 2 with 3.0 that was perfectly zippy.

Was the response on the PEQs as good as it was with MF2 on your friends ipad 2?

If so, that might point to the graphics library for the retina display as being the culprit for slowing down MF3 on ipad 3
