iphone / ipod touch compatibility
For band mates without ipads. Even if limited to levels in and out on dedicated output would be great.
My Fader 1.0 for iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store

Any info on launch date in App Store?

Still waiting for it in France... Do you have a coming out precise date ?
Chris Noble commented
I still can't access this app, I'm in Canada, is there a longer wait for the Canadian store?

It's been said: control your monitormix via your smartphone. IF the jack output of the phone could run some in-ears, it would be truly awesome!
The battery-level might be a problem, but that's for Apple and Samsung to solve ;)
Yes, something like a qmix where we can do a quick me/band adjust
What´s with iPad 4? Connector change...Thanks

Hey Mackie as far as I can tell you are in direct competition with Presonus Studiolive which has Qmix for iphone & Itouch. It seems ludicrous that you haven't included similar. I still have not made up my mind which to go for!!!!!!!!!
This size of desk with remote control is aimed SQUARELY at the band leader/musician who is working to a budget which is never enough to hire in a PA company and so he has to do his own sound and fix a FOH mix real quick and hardly ever gets enough time to fiddle with individual mixes to the satisfaction of all on stage. Added to this is that onstage mix does change during the gig because excitement levels heighten and the band settle into the gig. AL:sdo different songs need different instruments coming to the fore so we can all hear an importan intro part ETC. Even rising temperature can change the mix!
I really want to give monitoring control to individual band members especially nowadays where more and more musicians have in ear monitors.
Keyboardists and drummer regularly use cans and can't actually ruin anything by adjusting their own mix as and when they need it. THIS IS IMPORTANT MACKIE!!! I'm not kidding or just blowing off steam It's hard to make monitor mix adjustments while you are singing or just linking between songs. we all do it but as a singer my job is to engage the audience during a gig NOT Engineer the mix.
Not everyone has the money to get an Ipad and the second hand market is fierce but so many musicians have the iphone cos they have MAC.

I would say have the option for full master fader functionality for the iphone/ipod touch for fail safe reasons (broken ipad during a gig). But add a monitor mode similar to the presonus app. My two cents.
yeah, i used q mix downloaded onto my iphone right before a gig with a hired sound company and controlled my own mix, it was amazing. iphone/andriod app to control levels to individual auxes would be great likw q mix
Aux mix channell and master level control for iphones, itouch is key.
Administrative control is essential. Doesnt have to be too in depth.
just see a phone log on and assign them a mix. ch, master level. select option for EQ control.
we dont need monitors just taking of from an idiot move or accidental finger slip..
(not too many musicians can effectively use a graph.)
A simple swipe and slide interface is fine. Just enough for fine tuning without bothering the sound man unless its a major issue.
just being realistic guys. simple is better more often than not.
I think full mix should be limited to iPads. Aux mixes level only to phones ect. Aux mixes don't have separate channel eq, or separate compressor settings ect. ,so level is really all you mess with in auxes anyway. Maybe 31band access if you want to get fancy. Phone access is crucial though, and not just iPhone, but android too. Again if you have a musician on stage you trust with FOH settings get him/her an iPad..
I personally hope there is some kind full mixing added to iPhones and iPod touches AND android. Having to buy multiple iPads for each member or just two to do remote mixing and docked mixing can get way too expensive. But almost everyone has a phone. And mostly they are apple or android based.
I would think this would make the short list for additions.

Definitely a must-have. Limiting it to just the aux mixes would be perfect. It's hard to justify an iPad for every band member!

That would be pretty cool.
