    The label of the knob is just wrong, the knob position correctly follows the knob position of the gain

    You could use Mixing Station as a translator. It supports OSC and REST API for nearly all channel parameters.

    I just found out via Facebook that there is a “known issue” with the Space Echo causes freezes..
    Why do I have to go to Facebook to find stuff like this?

    A&H come-on, if your support knows about known issues the least you could do is openly communicate them so I don’t have to find them on my own during a show!
    It’s also really shocking to me how silent this forum post is, I would have expected much more involvement from A&H since this is a showstopper!

    You can hate behringer as much as you want but if they know about a crash in their mixer firmware they either openly communicate it or deliver a hotfix within 1-2 days.. just saying I’m a bit disappointed to A&H at this point.

    So A&H can you please(!) provide a list of your known issues? Got a couple of bigger shows and I would really like to use the Avantis (and be confident it doesn’t crash on me). If I know all the issues I can work around them, no problem.

    Okay I’m not sure if the forum is broken but my previous post is gone? So here is it again, hopefully it stays visible this time.
    =============
    Update: I found a couple of more UI issues and freeze conditions:

    Bugs:
    1) When using copy/paste/listen buttons while channel knobs are assigned the text is out of bounds and not fully readable
    2) When touching a fader the left side of the channel area has a dark bar which makes the text of the knob assignment hard to read

    Performance:
    1) When pressing any copy/paste/listen/reset buttons the UI freezes for a short abound of time.
    2) When 2 Dyn8 views (on both screens) the UI lags hard, you can see in my video the meters lagging.
    3) When doing both at the same time the UI can freeze for more than 2 seconds

    Here is a sample video:

    you can see the LR meter getting much more responsive after I’ve closed the two dyn8 windows. However the UI still freezes when pressing reset (at 0:13).
    To be honest that makes the mixer pretty hard to use in stressful situations, especially since all the UI is on the screens and the metering is affected.

    My guess is that A&H is working on the issues, but can someone confirm?

    @Hurley: Yes I agree, I’m using mixing station as a fallback now for the Dyn8, but I hope this gets resolved.

    Yes and no: I don’t own any dLive components and I don’t have easy access to them. However I was able to build a rough prototype using the dLive Director software, but I’m not sure how good it covers the actual hardware. So depending on how well/bad it works there might be support for dLive as well. Otherwise I’ll need to get a CDM first 🙂

    Just released a new version of Mixing Station, including support for the Avantis mixer series.

    The most important changes for the SQ are:
    – Channel Link and Quickgang feature: Allows you to link arbitary channels together, or batch edit them relatively to eachother. Super helpful when adjusting gains/thresholds of multiple channels (for example drums). See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLx8Jjchq7s for more details
    – Dedicated “Tap Delay” action
    – Layout editor is now easier to use and includes predefined buttons
    – Opto compressor now accessible (with fancy graphics)
    – Improved gain reduction visibility in MultiDB/Dyn8
    – Improved routing matrix with lock feature

    The full changelogs can be found here:
    https://mixingstation.app/changelogs

    Also a quick sidenote on the Avantis integration: It is also possible to access input signal routing, Dyn8/MultiDB and FX racks within Mixing Station.

    As far as I know this is not possible, however you could use Mixing Station (https://mixingstation.app/) as a translator between midi and the mixer. It natively supports mackie control and general midi. Depending on how the FaderPort 16 identifies iteself you might need to tweek it a bit.

    Currently the avantis integration is in beta testing but will soon be released

    The Mixing Station app has avantis support currently in its beta phase but already allows routing of all input channels (see screenshot).
    If you want you can join the beta and test it out:

    https://mixingstation.app/

    Details on how to join the beta:
    https://mixingstation.app/ms-docs/beta/

    Note: Mixing Station will also support Dyn8 and FX control with future updates

    Still without A&H Support?

    Yep, that’s why some of the features for A&H mixers take (much) more time to develop, but in the end I get there 🙂

    Long time since I last posted here, but I’m happy to announce the next big update for mixing station.
    This release includes a few new things for A&H mixers as well:
    – There is now a dedicated layout for the DynEQ and multiband compressors. All of them can be easily tweaked by dragging, similar to a regular PEQ
    – All SMR FX now have the expert parameters available
    – All premium compressor models now got fancy graphics
    – Sidechain and parallel path options
    – Signal generator
    – ReGain feature is now more easily accessible

    Additionly there were a lot of smaller features and fixes. The entire changelog can be found here. The update should appear in the next 24h in the appstore.

    Ah totally forgot:
    Mixing Station Pc/Osx can act as a protocol converter between OSC/REST and the mixer. This allows other software which only can communicate with OSC to work with any supported mixer.
    An example use case would be theater automation with palladium or QLab. While it’s true that you could just use the TCP Midi driver provided by A&H the API provided by mixing station is cross mixer compatible. This means if you have your QLab show configured with mixing station you can change to any other supported mixer and most of the commands will still work.
    Currently the documentation for this is quite rough so if you are an advanced user and interested check it out here: https://dev-core.org/ms-docs/integrations/apis/
    Don’t worry, I plan to make this documentation easier to understand.

    Hi everyone,
    I thought I post an update about the latest changes of Mixing Station.
    – It is possible to download mixer layouts created by other users. This is especially helpful when you want to get started fast. Only requirement is a mixing station account.
    It is also possible to backup your settings directly to your account.
    In the future this feature will be expanded to cross mixer channel presets as well. This means that you will be able to store a channel preset for any supported mixer, and load it on any other supported mixer (as long as no special plugins are used). This is especially helpful when you work with different mixers and want to access your presets on any of them.
    – Full Mackie Control Midi support (including Metering and LCDs). This means that you can connect any MCU compatible midi controller and use it to control mixing station / your mixer.
    – Fully customizable channel strip. This allows you to reorder and resize the channel strip as you like. If you want you can even get rid of the fader.
    – Layers can automatically scale if you change the channel count. This makes it very easy to change the number of visible channels.

    Coming up in v1.1.0:
    – Load/save all channel and FX presets
    – All free FX types are now accessible from the app.
    – Multi window support for the PC/Mac version.

    A more detailed explanation about the new features can be found here:

    Happy mixing!

    Quick update:
    A early test version is now available:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.davidgiga1993.mixingstation.ah_sq

    the pro version will follow shortly:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.davidgiga1993.mixingstation.ah_sqpro

    As it’s a test version there are some limitations:
    – All basic mixing parameters, input routing and RTA is available.
    – You’ll see all 12 mix and group channels, regardless of the mixer configuration.
    – No personal monitor mode yet available

    If you only want to keep the same monitor level but don’t care about the rest, just select “sends”
    If you also want to keep the threshold levels of the compressor, select it as well

    Sorry for the late reply!
    I just got my SQ-5 today and already started digging in the network data. From now on it’s a lot of trying out stuff and fully documenting the protocol. Afterwards I’ll add it to the app.
    The timeline for a very crude test version might be 2-3 weeks depending on how much time I find
