    You can have pan position and independent fas on the monitor mix,

          • Downloadable File for Offline Testing?

            I'm always watching tutorial videos online, usually away from my iPad or the DL unit itself. I would love to test some of the techniques I see online, but it could be days or a week before I'm able to get to the studio, and hope the band allows me to spend time playing with settings at all.
            It would be great, if there was a file available online that could be imported, with several channels of audio (guitar, drums, bass, whatever) already included, so you could simulate running a live show. Then you could test routing options, monitor mixing,…

            • Allow quick changing between snapshots or create scenes so mixer can be used for theatre.

              I often program a Yamaha M7 to do theatre shows, if I could use my DL32 for a similar function (programming scenes/channel safes, etc.) that would be a HUGE gamechanger.

              • Power-on default snapshot

                In a Church setting, with volunteers with limited experience and a fairly static "normal" configuration, it would be nice to have the ability to set a default snapshot that gets loaded on power up of the DL32R. AND if we could actually pre-load access control as well with the snapshot, I could literally tell any volunteer to turn on the board and be sure of the current state, and be sure that most situations wouldn't even require the iPad to be powered on.

                  • Rear Facing Aux Outs

                    All of our wireless units have rear inputs. It makes for a very awkward rack set up. Honestly this is the main reason I haven't upgraded from my DL16

                            Olá, seria perfeito se fosse possível reproduzir músico iPad sem que este esteja conectado no mixer. Assim seria possível troca de musicas a distância.

                            • Add an "iPad shouldn't sleep" function to keep the iPad awake when the program is running.

                              Add a function to keep the iPad from sleeping while the program is running. When you exit the program the iPad sleeps normally. Far better than changing the sleep settings in IOS and needing to remember to change it back after the show.

                                • 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.)..
