    Actually, I can get pretty mad when I read such nonsense from people who present themselves as specialists.

    I would gladly read Woutert’s papers, white or otherwise or have a look at any drawing on this subject (or any other), had he published any……Until then I will continue to educate myself with such “white” papers as those published by the likes of Dan Lavry and not let my temper get the better of me when confronted with a different reality, opinion or point of view.

    Peace……

    A quick thought on this topic would be the following about the surface.

    1) Some means to adjust the led brightness of the channel strip independant of the brightness of the virtual write-on strip above the fader. Under low lighting conditions, once you dim the leds on the channel strip so they are not blinding you, the colors of the virtual strips are gone.

    2) Possibly an additional display same type as the virtual write-on strip above the channel strip which displays the channel name of the selected channel in a large font.

    +1 very practical. Think ETC Expression 3 style

    I for myself would like to see:
    – Faster boot time of the surface and editor (what in my understanding needs an change of the programming philosophy – so not shure if that would be an easy change)
    Editor should stay on and if an drop out occurs it should sync automaticly if reconnected. Like the Yamaha…
    – full Waves SG Integration
    – Fader calibration
    – different lights on the channes strips and meters – the lights on the channel srtips are looking like they are sitting too far behind.
    – Better built quality of the encoder, knobs -surface over all.
    – more flexible network structure – its way too easy to get an connection error when having more then just 1 mixrack and 1 surface.
    – ability for 2 option cards in the mixrack or even 1 in the surface. So i think it would need to speed up ACE to 1Gbps or so…
    – Dynamic EQ and Multiband Compressor for each channel – not ony via an FX Rack.

    I would like to see an auto-gain mode that is switchable for early-show (soundcheck or initial show start). The behavior I would like to see from this mode is primarily to assist in proper gain staging. If the system detects overloading of the preamps, I would like for the system to be able to lower the gain on the preamp and compensate all signals derived from that preamp by the same db increment to keep relative levels the same. As I manually change the relative levels the system conforms the automation of all derived gains to the new manual levels.

    A selectable auto-off mode might also be useful after the system detects no overloads for a set period of time the auto gain disables automatically or under manual control.

    dburris, that’s an excellent idea.

    Using computers for what they do best. great thinking.

    Anything routable to anywhere would be nice. Output of a group routed to the input of a channel or another group or ??

    I would like the ability to choose which mix bus is the default selection. For example, a monitor engineer might want the “Money” mix to be the default, rather than the L&R or L,R,C bus.

    Have fun,

    Anyone else think its funny how similar the Avid S3L is to a lot of the features mentioned here for iLive 2?

    This particular feature i think is pretty much standard. Its even on the LS9.

    I’ve got another one.
    Ditch the custom FX and go for Waves Soundgrid so we can plug in our own, or guest engineers can bring their own / presets.

    The amount of effort A&H expends on FX would be better invested in core console functions. My thoughts are that if people want fancy multiband compressors or other effects, let them buy them themselves and run whatever they like.

    But, point taken. A Digico style integration would be great.

    Wish list:
    An architecture that supports full control of multiple MixRacks from iPad apps. The current apps don’t let you control Slave racks.

    A few more colors for strip LCDs.

    More return channels from Slave racks. In the current system I can only get 32 channels back from the slave on the unused ACE channels (33-64). That makes Virtual Soundcheck using Dante a little tricky if the Dante card is in Port B of the slave.

    Output trims. If I duplicate the mains on the surface RCA outs, I’d like to be able to pad those outputs a bit without burning another group/aux/matrix.

    @tk2k yes I know about the waves card but it takes up a slot. Build it in so you still have expansion options.

    A control surface that is network control only. ACE or Dante connection with maybe 4 audio inputs on the controller. Faders and a nice easy to understand strip control, lots of soft keys that are programmable, keyboard and mouse control with regular or touch screen capability. The user then could choose to purchase any screen he wanted. output for 2 screens would be nice. No screen built in, this would make for a very compact control surface that could be used with any of the current IDR mixracks.
    Had the chance to touch and use one of the AVID sl3(I think that’s what they are calling it)VERY confusing for anyone that would not be setting at it all of the time. Good concept, poor execution. Allen and Heath already way ahead of the game of “network control”.
