    I have seen this kind of thing pop up already so I wanted to dedicate a thread to it.

    Works great, except nothing is metering on it. I am assuming from all the meters shown that they are supposed to respond.

    iDR-16, Airport Extreme, iPad.

    No surface is hooked up, but I can see the editor metering and responding to controls from the app. The app also responds great to changes being made in the editor.

    Anyone else? Thoughts?

    I have tried tweaking what I can on the router, adjusting some multicast settings, etc. Nothing. Tried restarting everything, nothing.

    Same deal here Stephen,
    I’ve got signal running in and have tried the PAFL and both channel input and mix output meters with no joy… so I don’t have the RTA either (which I really would like to use) – maybe there is an optimal setting for the router that we’re both missing?

    Speaking of RTA how do you access that from the app I havent found it anywhere, unless it meters on the GEQ screen.

    Just got an email from support. Duh apparently there are settings for the MixPad app under the main settings app to enable metering.

    Not able to test at the moment but will shortly.

    Well turning the metering option off and then on again seems to have solved the problem.

    YAY!

    hey guys help apprechiated i have frimware 4.2.1 on my pad the app as soon i choose a mix (auxes main whatever) gets minimized
    and then i have to logon again….my guess was multicasting but it did not affect anything , my editor comps are windows (eepc and a msi touch and they work flawless with wifi)
    i tried the pad alone (my other computers turned off) same thing.

    so hints are very very welcome

    cheers

    Dave, you tried closing all other apps right (double click the button, that opens your dock at the bottom, hold an icon until it wobbles, close everything but MixPad) – sorry if im stating the obvious (no offense intended)!!!
    The other option is to delete it and redownload (direct to your iPad, not via iTunes) – maybe you just got a dodgy download?
    I’ve done the off/on settings trick and now have the RTA & meters running beautifully – looking forward to my first gig with it tomorrow!
    UPDATE – just got home from my gig; managed to get through the show without once turning on the laptop (although it was a very simple show!!!), so that was a nice first outing for the app! Didn’t hurt that I got to sit with the caterers and chow down for most of the show (like I said it was a VERY simple show)!

    Leon, as above if you go into the global settings and scroll down to the apps list you’ll see MixPad – in there switch off and then on the metering/RTA/Multicast options – seems to do the trick

    Good question Dave, having a peek around the web it doesn’t seem so (other than a hard restart, but thats slower than doing it manually in most cases!). Glad to hear that issue resolved though – it sounded frustrating!!!

    One limitation we noted was that when you selected a stereo aux channel you loose the ability to pan the channels assigned to that aux.
