    Android app is a necessity, not a “good to have thing”.
    We all saw what happened with iphone vs android phones.

    There is no reason we shouldn’t expect the same thing to happen in 6 to 12 months.

    It would be nice to know if there is an intention to release an android app, if yes, a time frame…

    Thank you.

    +1 for android as well ;)

    Editor is written in Java
    Androids preffered language is Java
    So it shouldn’t be the big thing, because all classes should be reusable

    Correct me if I’m wrong :)

    Agree the scene systems needs a major overhaul or a complete redesign.

    All these things are needed from a theatre perspective:

    Scene-cut/copy/insert is much needed (reorder is too slow)
    A scope-funktion for selecting what to store every time you hit store (“store scope” ?) perhaps with memory too.
    Scene-fading (selectable on/off pr channel)
    ON-THE-FLY channel-safe function: Yamaha does this. If you press and hold select while recalling a scene, the particular channel or channels don’t update. Very useful for dialogue channels e.g.
    Offset on scene-load (pm5d has this). Very useful for effects or background music. For i.e. you can turn on an effect and automatically open a radio mic 5 seconds later.
    Store button assignable to user-key
    Auto-advance function is weird. Needs to recall when “go” is pressed – it’s very confusing to have another scene than the current one highlighted all the time
    Speed – scene-loading needs to be much faster (as does startup time and reconfigure time)
    On a related note – scene-storing should happen in the background, so you’re not stuck for 10 seconds everytime you update a scene.
    This one is exciting: reconfigure the go-button to send a midi-string to something like cuelab wich then in turn sends the go-signal back when everything is ready. The userkeys are too far away to use for this. They should be in the lower-right corner on the next generation surface.

    The key for theatre use is speed and easy access. If you’re programming during rehearsals you need to move along with what’s happening on stage. You need to be able to move scenes around, cut,copy and paste with lightning speed and to update a scene in a flash and move on right away. If you want to update a scene during a show, you have to be able to do that without being afraid of missing the next cue.

    Then some other minor stuff:
    width control (or dual pan) on stereo channels and busses
    Perhaps a multiple pfl funktion (and dual path in the console if possible, so you can listen to one thing in the wedge while listening to another in in-ears) for multiple operators.
    Pitch-effect (but only if it’s really good – has to replace a TC Intonator or Antares ATR1)
    Distortion effect (right now I have a tube-screamer in the back of the case :D)
    Delay (effect) in notes corresponding to the tap-tempo and with a midi-set function.
    Keying comps on groups (from other groups or a channel)
    Better de-esser with width
    Personally I don’t need the graphics to go below 63 Hz, I find it’s a question of where you put your hi-pass filter, but an 8-band PEQ on busses would be an idea for a mkII system.

    For R72:
    PEQ/COMP/ETC on-knobs function. Should work like it did on the Icon DP1000/DL1000. Could be accessed from userkeys.

    This is one of the best systems out there, and with these features it would absolutely kill everything else. I love working on the iLive. I never feel irritated, and the sound is just sonic heaven :)

    Hi,

    At present l use the custom user strips for control of mixrack and have 4 tabs set up (FoH, Mons, FX, and setup). l would like to be able to set up more tabs and have a monitor mix on each tab (which can be done already) but when a tab is clicked it goes to that page and automatically turns on the mix button for a preselected mix.

    i.e.

    When FoH tab is clicked the main mix is automatically selected
    When Mon1 tab is clicked aux1 mix is automatically selected.

    This option should be able to be switched off for tabs like set-up and it certainly shouldn’t be latching.

    Hope this makes sense…

    Cheers,

    Gary.

    Definitely Plus 1 for all of the above. We only use this console for theatre work in Sydney, and are planning on building our entry into the digital world on this platform. All that has been listed above is a must, especially fading and copy paste. Why cant I choose to have copy paste buttons on the console for scene use?

    Another two things i really need added:

    1. output trim on mains and auxiliarys – When CD level is at 0, fader is at 0 and mains are at 0 my amplifiers should not be limiting, and this has never been the case before. As every room we go into is different, often with a PA over-specced for the room. need to be able to adjust for this with an overall gain drop before leaving the digital world.

    2. RTA redesign. This seems to have been built as a bit of an afterthought. The two greatest requirements needed here are the ability to adjust the gain of the response of the meters (without adjusting the gain on the channels you’re looking at) and also the ability to slow the response time. at present without slowing down it is near impossible to EQ a room adequately with Pink noise.

    Thanks guys, I love the system, and I love that there are constant tweaks and improvements coming our way.

    You can use matrix mixes here, as you can easily setup additional outputs or different output configurations without affecting your current show.

    It is impossible anyway to EQ a room adequately with pink noise.

    Please rework the tap delay. right now it is not possible to use the softkeys as tap. it is not accurate enough.Even on the delay screen the indication flashes at an strange rate.
    I had some visiting BE’s and they got frustrated because the softkey/LED din’t respond well on there tapping

    Keyboard shortcuts for the possibility to rename channels without touching the console just using the external connected USB keyboard.
    -next
    -previous
    -apply
    would be cool

    Maybe we can use a normal computer keyboard for scene editing as well, would save time I guess..,

    a&h has one of the best bpm detect systems within their pro dj stuff.
    i mean
    1. open up delay
    2. select channel to trigger (kick/snare/hat whatever)
    presets such as : tight (exact) and sloppy (getting slower for reggae)

    that would be a smasher (i am old and lazy..dont even want to tap anymore[;)])

    + 1 Yes Yes Yes Please! Very annoying at the moment that you have to use the surface or touch screen to select the next channel or to apply a name edit when using an external keyboard. Thats because hittin ENTER closes the name edit window! My suggestion would be > arrow = enter name and select next strip, < arrow = enter name and select previous channel strip, Enter key = enter name and close window (it does this now), Up arrow or backspace keys = cancel and close window, Down arrow = enter name and leave name window open – Or something like that.
    Needs to work like Editor does so you can quickly name channels without taking hands from the keyboard.

    Seriously Dave, why haven’t A&H put you on the payroll yet – even if it’s just to design their GUI’s. Love your work Rastaman.
