  1. Stay connected while screen locked

    A screen “lock” that lets you still see the screen and keeps the WiFi connected, but doesn’t matter if you bump / touch the screen (at risk of sending a mic screaming etc etc).

    Working in crowded rooms means squeezing past dancers / packed onlookers. If you turn off the tablet to avoid bumps from such people and then have an emergency on stage you have to wait for it to reconnect and sync before you can act. If it’s a feedback issue then thats too long. If there was some sort of way to keep the tablet connected but…

    • Include a spectrum analyzer that automatically sets the main eq for each venue.

      Setting the main eq is most important. When you play different venues each gig, the eq has to be reset every night. Auto eq would be great! Each channel eq is more stable as each night the people and the equipment are the same.

            • Locknuts on the DL1608 trim pots

              It is to easy to accidently knock a trim pot out of adjustment especially when it is in a rack mount configuration. . if the pots were stiffer or had a locknut arrangement on them, it would make it far less likely that the input levels would be inadvertently changed.

              a retrofit kit for existing installations would be great

              • Receive midi timecode to sync Master Fader delay times

                My band uses Ableton for rhythms and loops, and it would be great if we could send midi timecode via bluetooth to the iPad (which we do) and this was received by the Master fader app so that Master Fader's delay time could be synced with the song's bpm.

                    Update to MixerConnect. Ability to name channel inputs, and effects presets (eq, comp, verb) per channel by input type (guitar, voice etc). Code is already in master fader - copy and paste it in!

                    • fader order customization

                      In my main mix view, lead vox is in channel 8. Bunch of instrument channels after that. To make the most of screen real estate (hate scrolling and layer switching), backup vox's are in a VCA. Between them are some other instrument channels. (Same for drums, guitars, etc.)

                      Want all my drum faders next to each other (regardless of whether alone or sub'd or VCA'd). Want all my vox's next to each other (same, whether alone, sub'd, or VCA'd).

                      Easiest way to accomplish this would seem to be letting me specify the order that faders appear, left to right.

                          • mackie DL32R - studio interface for Pro Tools 12

                            Hey,

                            I'd like to use the DL32R as an interface in recording studio. I already managed to record a microphone signal in Pro Tools but can't configure outputs path to hear the signal on my studio monitors.

                            Is it possible to make a cue for musicians straight from the DL32R, not after Pro Tools ?

                            Please help me out.

                            thanks

                            Can anyone help me out ?

                                It should be shown wich preset I am using on every channel.
                                That applies both on effects, EQ,s, compressors or whatever.

                                    I'd love to have a button in the access restrictions that limits access to the 48v phantom power buttons, preventing *cough* untrained users *cough cough* from blowing up my stuff.

                                      • SUBS TO AUX

                                        Ability to assign subs to aux sends. How difficult is it to make the DL806 work like an analog mixer when sending subgroups out and not be linked to the main L/R?
