  4. Aux Sends switchable PER CHANNEL between Pre or Post CHANNEL EQ /DSP

    Rather than globally, make it possible to select PER CHANNEL whether that channel's aux sends are Pre or Post EQ & FX. This is most pertinent when using just one mixer for both FOH and monitor mixing. Some performers ask for EQ to their wedges, so you want the setting to be POST. But most don't want to hear the changes you are making to the FOH in their wedges (and such changes can risk feedback) so you want your aux sends PRE. My Allen & Heath Mix Wizard lets me configure internal jumpers on each individual channel for its…

  5. MONO OUT for a single (1) sub with (2) stereo tops. Aux 6? Not same as crossover idea. Just MONO.

    I often use my system with just one subwoofer and two tops running in stereo. I probably do this more than I use two subs. The presonus board I already sold for the mackie had 3 main outs, 2 for left/right and a mono out that I used for my sub. They both actually have their own gain control. Can we use aux 6 to mirror all main signals and use the channel fader as a type of gain? And then if I raise or lower the main volume the aux channel 6 moves relative to the main signal, but…

  7. Allow the remote control of the recording option and music playback on the docked iPad from a wireless connection iPad

    It would be great it we could remotely control the recording option and music playback on the docked iPad from a different wireless connection iPad.

    In our setup we tend to leave one iPad docked in the DL1608 and have a second iPad connected wirelessly for adjustments. It would be great if the wireless iPad could initiate recording on the docked iPad and also initiate playback from iTunes on the docked iPad.

  10. link multiple DL1608s via Dante on the Ethernet port

    I don't see why you couldn't use a bunch of DL1608s to create a very large mixer. It would be nice if the Ethernet port could use Dante to link them all together. Then you could also use a PC to record all those channels.

    With two DL1608s on stage for 32 wired mics and 12 monitor mixes, and once DL1608 at the mix position for wireless, CD playback and other stuff you need for a typical show, you could have one amazing 48 channel digital mixer for just a few thousand dollars.

  13. Send the monitor mix back to the 10 ipads for in-ear monitoring

    Since you can use up to 10 iPads with this system, why not send the 16-channels to the iPads (over the wifi network) and let each musician mix their own monitor AND they can attach headphones or use blue-tooth headphones. The trick is you need to record say 30 seconds of the band, then allow each musician to play back the recording so they can set levels. Otherwise, it would be too hard to play and mix at the same time.

  14. Add HP filter on gate and comp

    HPF on gate will improve drums response accuracy. HPF on comp allows to make deesser when you set attack and release to min.

  17. Add Undo button to reverse the most recent change

    An undo button could serve a few purposes:
    1) Allow a change to be auditioned quickly and reversed if necessary
    2) Allow restoration of a setting that had been inadvertently changed.

    This weekend I accidentally touched the screen as I was moving around with the iPad and moved an EQ setting. I didn't exactly know where it was originally set and it would have been nice to simply "undo" the change.

    Of course this could be extended to multiple levels of undo and/or undo/redo functionality to allow for even greater flexibility.

    The undo-data should be kept per view, so if…

  19. Let both effects paths use any available plugin each

    Just saw this on the forums and it's a great idea! Instead of 1 reverb and 1 delay, let the FX sections use any available plugins, even if they're the same effect (like a mono delay, but set to different values on each effect engine).
