    Dual mix rack set up on the offline Editor – Is this possible?

    I can only see the option for one mix rack…

    Hi Slammin

    I’m afraid Editor does not currently support offline Dual MixRack configuration, though will work fine in ‘MixRack only’ and ‘Online Surface & MixRack’.

    Hi Sam,

    I have been hanging off setting up our system in dual rack mode (iDR64 + iDR16) because I wanted all the sound techs being used to using the editor – it has a lot of educational value when transitioning from an analogue system to the iLive. Can you let us in on the time-frame for implementing offline editor support for dual rack mode – ie. never, next 6 mths, or other?

    Cheers

    Jeff

    Hi JH75

    We are aware of this feature request, though i’m afraid it is very low the priority list. I do not see this feature being implemented at all unless we see a much larger amount of requests from the field.

    Though we do already allow connection fully online for Dual rack.

    Is this the case for expander offline support as well?

    Hi Steffen

    Yes i’m afraid so, though if alot of people request this it is possible to get bumped up the Priority list.

    I have an expander and would really like to be able to control it with the ipad app. For now it is not possible.
    So on most occasions i simply can’t use the expander because i can not control it on stage ( with i do all the time ).
    Hope it will be possible very soon.

    regards Lieven

    .

    That is disappointing to hear. So if we can’t get offline support in the editor, what things can I do in offline mode – eg. strip layout – and what things can’t I do in offline mode -eg ?? when working with dual rack mode racks? I’d like to get an understanding of the limitations so I can educate our sound tech group.

    The educational aspect I spoke of earlier comes down to understanding the routing – not all our operators are fully experienced sound techs with experience across a range of boards/surfaces.

    Thanks for the prompt reply

    I’m grateful for the ability to use the editor with our dual-rack system but would very much like to be able to use it offline as well.

    Hi JH75

    You have almost full control to cofigure most of the iLive system with offline mode except:
    Dual-Rack and xDr16 Expander setup is not available at all, the signal generator, some MIDI control, multicast/network settings, user profiles & Firmware update are not available offline either.

    I think everything else should be possible. You can configure your strip layouts, custom strips and setup all of your routing, only with a single mixrack setup.

    Hope that helps.

    Sam,

    Will dual rack and Xdr16 be supported on the IPAD in the next update ? the xdr is kind of useless now because i can’t control it on stage with the ipad.

    That is great news! I certainly appreciate the testing that you had to do to construct this reply. As always, great support from Allen & Heath.

    Now I’ll complete the dual rack installation and get some local support to help in training the guys on setting up and using dual rack mode racks – just in time for our busy season.

    Once again a big thank you.

    Cheers

    Hi Jeff

    Just to clarify that we do not support dual rack or expander functionality offline at all. You will only be able to configure routing strip layouts etc for a single Mixrack setup (1-64 DSP channels).

    Sorry if my last post was confusing?
