    Hi,
    For the last several weeks I tried to reverse engineer the ACE network protocol in order to write an remote app for Android / WP8 but it’s way more complex than I originaly thought (especially cause I don’t have access to an iLive system)

    Why can’t A&H just release a protocol documentation like http://www.behringer.com/assets/X32_OSC_Remote_Protocol_v1.01.pdf Behringer did?


    Ummm, can I just say again – Behringer? Of course they’re releasing their protocols… they’re hoping someone can write one for them that’s better than their own ;)
    Leave the iLive apps where they are – I have a first generation iPad which still runs MixPad flawlessly (as well as an iPad mini) & Apple seriously isn’t that horrible – build a bridge folks & get over it.

    I doubt it, their software is already quite good and stable.

    Anyway, an protocol documentation would be awesome.

    This excuse is getting a little old yet it continues to be used. It might be valid if not for this:

    http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/screens_support.html

    “Android runs on a variety of devices that offer different screen sizes and densities. For applications, the Android system provides a consistent development environment across devices and handles most of the work to adjust each application’s user interface to the screen on which it is displayed.”

    Of course, it could be that A&H doesn’t want to upset the lawsuit happy iNation who may think they own the name to all things “i”.

    What you are really asking for here is for A&H to directly (and fully) support OSC (Open Sound Control) protocol and I think that would be an interesting and potentially progressive move for them. With the iLive mixracks A&H have one of the best hardware setups ready and waiting for custom control capability. Although we can already use TCP/IP and Midi for control (these documents are available for download) these formats are severely limited in what can be achieved due to the limited control parameters supported. Of course we have Editor for total control and that is great (and free!) but offers virtually no end user customisation.
    Take this for example: Imagine if the iLive had complete OSC support – and you have a job/client that needs one operator (or device) to have access and control of say 4 monitor sends including channel processing but no FOH control, and no access to head amps. This can’t be done with either Editor, Mixpad, Onemix, or a surface yet it would be relatively easy to design a custom OSC layout that could work on almost any preferred platform including Android! TouchOSC would be one app that comes to mind that could provide custom touchscreen control.

    This is definately the way to go, rather than A&H releasing Android and Windows Phone apps, it would be great for them just to release an API or spec so that other 3rd parties could do this.

    That way A&H can focus on core business instead of building a million applications to work with their mixers.

    If someone wants an Android app, they could then build it themselves.
