    • Wireless cuts out multiple times after latest update. Please help.

      The wireless network cuts out every night at work at least 4 times. The only fix is to connect to another network and reconnect to the original after forgetting the other network. Very frustrating when a show gets started and your mixer stops working.

      • MP3 Recording option in Master Fader

        We record strictly spoken word on the Ipad with our DL 1608s - we have 4. We love the option to upload our recordings to ICloud or DropBox. Unfortunately, WAV files are HUGE and take way too long to upload by wifi. Our files are usually 600-700 MBs.
        An option to record as MP3s would be a HUGE benefit to us. Please consider adding that option to future Master Fader updates.

        • Plus and minus buttons in the numbers pad.

          When manually entering an amount of fader level or EQ boost or cut, it would be great if there was 2 more buttons in the keyboard; plus and minus. They should be of 0.1 increments and the change should take place immediately, not after tapping 'Done'.
          Maybe even have 4 buttons, with a pair that is 0.3?

          • Bright outdoors screen GUI

            When mixing outdoors, especially in the sun, it's hard to see what's on the screen, even with brightness turned up.
            How about an outdoors graphics scheme? High contrast and bright numbers and letters (etc.)..

                • Rearranging snapshots via press and hold feature

                  We use different vocalists for different numbers every week. Would be great to be able to rearrange their presets for the order of the show via press and hold like rearranging the icons on the iPad screen.

                  • Push "Access Limits" when syncing from DL to another iOS deivce

                    As an integrator, I use the "Access Limits" to keep "protect" system tuning and output routing from accidental changes. HOWEVER, any new iPad that joins the DL has free access. When the dialog pops up "that the DL is running a different show...and what do you want to do?" When the user selects "sync to DL" have it push the "Access Limits" lockout to that device as well.

                    • Confirmation in the patching section.

                      It's too easy to mess up the patching with just a touch.
                      A confirmation would be useful.

                      • Chorus, flanger, sidechain....

                        Can a simple sinewave or triangle modulation be added to the delay for use as chorus or flanger??? That would mean additional controls for speed and intensity, could be useful for acoustic gitars and more. A simple sidechain filter for the gates (and compressors) could also help a lot sometimes. A bell filter with Q=1 or higher (switchable narrow/wide) would need additional control for frequency and an on/off switch switch. A cue function for the filter would be helpful, but is not really important. A good sound engineer can estimate the frequency needed and try.... If there once would be…

                        • DL48 or DL64 or DL32+

                          The DL32 mostly fulfills all demands as I use a maximum of 24 physical inputs even for the bigger bands with brass and percussion. So I can double patch 8 inputs to channels 25 to 32 for stage monitors. So I can give these channels a separate EQ compressor and gate setting. Thinking further, would it be possible to add a ch33 to ch64 level ? This could be automatically routed from ch1 to ch33, ch2 to ch34 and so on... Could appear as a DL32+ on the market with a 64x64 Dante card.... Mechanically no change to a DL32,…

                            • Playback fine positoning for multichannel recordings

                              When you recorded more than an hour and wants to listen how was it like, you can not position playback time cursor fine enough. No fast-forward/rewind or any fine positioner buttons, only your finger and a 5mm long slider. Awful.

                                  • Additional EQ presets for common microphones

                                    Introduce some EQ presets for common microphones (eg shure SM58) that eliminate common problem frequencies for those specific microphones. I know at the moment you can set the EQ yourself and save it as a preset, but would be great to have it already in the presets.

                                        • Any chance of a DC8 for smaller studios/venues?

                                          Running a home studio, I need the inputs, but not the huge controller. Rather than just using an iPad, I'd like a control surface, but not one as big as the DC16. Any chance of a compact version?
