  1. Auto EQ

    Using the Mic on the iPad and the pink noise tone generator, it should be possible to EQ a room automatically with the MasterFader app, shouldn't it?

      • Improve multi-iPad connectivity/usability

        Problem:
        * FOH iPad has to re-synchronize frequently during live performance - Dangerous, since FOH is unable to control the mixer (e.g. squash feedback) while it's re-synchronizing
        * Problem Setup:
        * 1 FOH iPad, furthest away from mixer + WiFi router (mixer is behind the stage)
        * 5 musician iPads, to control in-ear monitor mix (also used to display song sheets during live performance via another app; FYI, other app does not use WiFi)
        * 1 recording iPad, plugged directly into mixer, used only for recording purposes
        * Apple Airport Express (post-2013 version), connected to mixer (WiFi only used for…

        • Dedicated Aux input channel for live house mix

          The problem:
          * Some musicians like to hear the live house mix, so that they can adjust their playing dynamics based on the overall sound
          * The live house mix fader levels are always changing as the FOH is tweaking fader levels during a live performance
          * Some musicians are not technically savvy and need a simple in-ear-monitor mix interface (i.e. adjusting all 16 or however many channels to appropriate monitor mix is too complicated for some musicians)

          Proposed solution:
          * Have a dedicated input channel in the Aux views just for the live mix. This should be a copy…

                • Drag and drop reorder view groups, mute groups, and VCAs

                  As quick and effective view group, mute group, & VCA allocation is essential to help manage the display and mixdown bands with lots of inputs, it would be really beneficial to be able to drag and drop these to reorder them.

                  I often find myself getting half way through assigning to view groups say, only to decide I wanted to configure the order slightly differently. Currently you have to rename and re assign everything. Simple drag and drop reordering would solve this, and be very awesome!

                  • Graphic EQ on subgroups or Assign Aux to Main

                    The biggest gripe I have with Master Fader is there is no way to group a bunch of mics and use a graphic EQ on them.

                    Say I have 8 LAV mics that different presenters will be using throughout the day, I want to ring out the room and pull out any frequencies that are giving me feedback. A graphic EQ works best for this. The only graphic EQs in master fader are on the Main LR or the Aux busses. I don't want to ring out the room with the Main LR graph because then everything like music and…

                    • Allow Inter-app audio as an insert/send effect

                      Allow Inter-app audio as an insert/send effect.
                      The MasterFader app is limited to reverb and delay and there are no plans to add effects, so why not allow audio to be routed through Inter-app audio? This works great on Cubasis and would allow for tons of 3rd party effects...

                      • More versatile FX, similar to the Behringer X32.

                        I'm sure it's covered here elsewhere... but, more FX and more versatile. Chorus, Flange, etc...

                        • MATRIX DL1608

                          Good afternoon, a very interesting feature that DL32r is already available is MATRIX.
                          Despite the few outputs, I believe this feature would be very useful for the DL1608.

                          We have situations like Front - Delay - LIVE Transmissions, and dvs that today we have to use an AUX in post fader to can do these services.

                          With MATRIX this situation would be much more efficient and professional.

                          I think 2 channels would be great ...

                          Thank you in advance.

                          • Add USB to 1608 w/Individual Channels

                            Please consider adding a USB in/out to the 1608 (and maybe the 806), and make sure the driver supports the channels as *individual* devices on Windows. Not one, single ASIO device with all of the channels, but have it show up on Windows as new input and output devices.

                            In other words: act as a sound card for the PC. Please. :-)

                              In single channel view mode, swiping left/right on the grey area of the input channels moves to the next or previous input channel... I would like to see output buses (aux, matrix, vca, so on) able to navigate in a similar way. I.e swipe from Aux 1 to Aux 2

                                  • 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,…

                                    • 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.

                                        • Make two Aux's a stereo Out ( as oppose to linking them) for easier stereo IEM

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