    • Save effect eq with effect

      Effect eq is an important part of the sound of an effect and needs to be saved and recallable with each effect. Examples: Bright reverb, Dark reverb, clean echo, muted echo. Also, Most reverbs (Not counting high end Lexicons or Eventide, etc) don’t sound natural to me without eq. I need to be able to call up custom effects quickly during shows, this is not possible if effects are in two pieces, effect and eq.

      • adjustable channel strip width size

        Provide sizing options for channel strip width (e.g. "Roomy", "Normal", "Compact") that will allow you to display more or fewer channels on the screen.

        I use 12-16 channels regularly on my iPad 9.7" and find the high degree of horizontal scrolling is distracting. On the 9.7" screen I could easily handle channel strips that were 30% narrower than they are currently.

        I could use a layout setting (maybe in the View Assign panel?) that allowed me to select from a few channel widths, specifically widths that are narrower than the default.

        • Ring room analysis

          I wished to have a way of analyzing the room response for adjustments of mains and monitors. Similar as Presonus incorporates SMAART to adjust built in EQ for ringing the mains or monitors. I'm using pink noise but Built in Rta in dl32r is not so accurate... and the frequency divisions has too big range. You can't point out exactly what frequency is ringing... any improvement will help.
          Thanks

          • A pink Noise generator would be very important...and an improvement of the RTA...

                Hey, anyone knows how do I calibrate Pro Tools's meters (sample peak) so it corresponds to the input level on my Mackie DL32R. Thanks

                    • Change polarity 180 degrees from a Matrix

                      When creating a crossover filter in a matrix, it would be nice to have the possibility to make a polarity invert. Or even better, free independent polarity setting of the output signal.

                      • File Manager in the Master Fader App when used with the DL32R to allow instant renaming or deleting of recorded files.

                        It's a drag having to remove the hard drive and connect to a PC to manage or rename recorded files.
                        Would be great if this basic feature could be done within the App.

                        • multi fx processor instead of rev dly only

                          after the master fader 4 i'm super happy
                          last thing i can ask to have in a dl devices is rack selectable FX
                          like a buit in multi fx , to choose bettween rev dly but also other tipical fx like chorus phaser also some wierdo fx will be very creative
                          adding a 3 fx channel will be superb but maybe to much asking

                          • Fix DL32R Music Playback Limitations

                            You cannot load playlists and play them in the order you have them. The software puts them in random order and numbers them. We need the ability to load playlists for breaks by different music types for different events. You should make it work like an iPod does. Allow us to load and play different playlists in the order we choose.

                            • Change control of Mixer View setting "Auto" from volume control to mute control

                              I like the idea of automatically hiding channels however using the volume control as a trigger doesn't seem to be the right place as I never use volume control for this function in fear of losing the last setting a particular channel is using. I find that using the mute control is a better option as it is the control I use when I don't want to use a particular channel. When I decide I want to re-enable a channel, the previous volume level is not lost. This option prevents the channel from being too low or causing feedback when…

                                    • Smaart'' speaker calibration assistant.

                                      I think it would be wonderful to have a speaker calibration assistant with eq and phase measurement and, why not, a mackie microphone.

                                      • Higher contrast on sub, vca and mute group numbers on channel strips

                                        It is difficult to see what subgroups, vcas and mute groups are assigned to each channel from the channel strips. Bold/brighten assigned values and/or increase difference between on and off state.

                                        • Dugan-like feature on at least 8 assignable channels

                                          Implement an auto-mixer, Dan Dugan-style. One of the main reasons this isn’t the perfect mixer to bring for cooperate and conference events with multiple headsets and handhelds. Original Dan Dugan would be preferred, but a replica will suffice. At least 8 channels in at least 3-4 groups. 16 channels in 6 groups would be optimal. Sacrificing an effect per 8ch would be acceptable.
