And as expected, the whining, moaning, and bitching of infants and toddlers.

Iím hoping you never consider anyone here on the forum as being whining, moaning, bitching infants and toddlers?

Just wondering, is anyone in Behringer land annoyed at hardware being released with beta software?
Edit: Didn't see previous three posts. Didn't know the target audience was so young....

V1.0 of MF was also quite shaky. Remember there are two non Beta apps as well (iPad & Android). At least the infants and toddlers aren't sticking their heads in a urinal and flushing. ;)

Negative. I think we have all earned stripes and moved beyond training diapers what with all the trials and tribulations of our shared,past, and ongoing collective DL experiences.
Fact is I am not surprised by the early frustration exhibited and rather expected it due to to the entry-level appeal of the X-Air series to a greater inexperienced demographic in platform and peripheral literacy. Following along, sitting in the bleachers is seemingly like watching reality TV, all the while observing the customer-manufacturer space and time continuim.
Wisdom prevailing, growing pains are to be expected and should be allowed for the product, however due diligence is incumbent of the end-user customer.

Hi James,

I apologize for even thinking you might have even gone that way.  :-[

I would read it more as grumbling about the lack of continuity across the software and staggered release times. Bear in mind, much has happened in just the short 10 or so days of product release and first posts in the new X-Air section of the user forum.
Not young in age necessarily, though would expect, but young in experience and basic understanding and comprehension of the idiom, audio 101, computers (PC/Mac) and the variant of OS`s, IP implementation and limitations, iOS & Android and the requisite and myriad of pertinent device,app and OS combinations.
The series may well have a democratising effect more so than any other similarly marketed device, something similar to, rewind 20 plus years, to Greg Mackie`s first mixers and the seemingly ubiquitous effect of finding a Mackie mixer in every Gin Joint, High School, and Prayer House.

Remember there are two non Beta apps as well (iPad & Android).

If by non-beta you mean not even beta, but just a mockup. Behringer has acknowledged that that's what the iPad app is.

So, they're shipping a device that can't be used as intended? Nice.

The OS X beta looks pretty great, though. I hope the final iPad app is more like that, with dyn & EQ visible in the strip when enabled, and graphical parametric EQ.

Both Mackie and QSC shipped with, at best, minimally functional iPad apps.

As I've stated in the past I don't comment on something I have no first hand knowledge off, a piece of advise you should probably follow. I'm using that "mockup" as you say to control the XR18. Must be one hell of a simulation with ESP. ;D If your talking about the demo well that's what it is since you need a mixer for functionality. Can't mix on MF without a DL now can we.

The Mac editor does all the things the iPad doesn't, even in demo mode, without an X18 attached. I'm basing my claim on this quote:

The iPad app is not fully functional at this point, not only with the FX but the P16 end of things and the RTA end to name a few.

Perhaps my source is wrong. Can you indeed switch effects from your iPad? RTA all good? Uli's personal response to that post was that there's a new version coming.

The thing I actually am curious about, is do the Dynamics and EQ display in the channel strip when enabled? QSC's don't, and it drives me nuts. The Mac X-Air Edit does, so I'm hoping the iPad will as well.
