    You can also lock parts of the iPad’s screen with its accessibility “Guided Access” function . Once you gat the hang of it, it’s quite easy lock it down to only allow the volumes of one mix to be controllable for instance.

    If it’s not your iPad though, you may find some resistance to this idea……

    I don’t have the desk here, so I can’t test this and could be talking rubbish!

    But I think, if you use your computer’s “Audio MIDI Setup” app to create a new “Aggregate Device” you should be able to choose any input you want. You then get Audacity to use that aggregate device.

    Just to clarify – by “layer 3”, GCumbee means the upper layer button, and “layer 1” is the lower button.

    From the manual:

    Qu-Drive is 18-tracks with
    one patchable stereo pair for track 17-18. USB B is 24
    channel with three patchable stereo pairs including the
    same track 17-18 as Qu-Drive and the LR post-fade
    mix on track 23-24.

    Which is what you said really.

    So you can’t record ST2 & ST3 with the Qu-Drive.

    If I’m mixing a band live, and making a multitrack recording at the same time, I really don’t want any changes I make on the desk to be recorded, as I’d have to try to compensate for them afterwards. And I certainly don’t want to be tied down & not adjusting something because it will effect the recording.

    I wasn’t going to reply. But, are those not all things that can be done later, either by the DAW, or possibly using your lovely vintage compressors?

    I’m happy to accept that people do compress as they record – in the early days of digital you pretty well had to, and maybe it is still more common than I’d thought.

    But, we are no longer recording to 8bit or even 16bit machines (are we?), so I’m not convinced that compression is necessary.

    However, this is a discussion for a recording forum, not here. If recording from direct outputs, post DSP, were made possible, I’d not be complaining.

    I think it is a pretty standard STUDIO practice to record live instruments and use eq and light compression to improve the tone and even levels, then set the gain again after.

    Really? OK I’ll admit that I don’t do much studio work myself these days, but I work with a lot of people who do.

    But, I’d never want to compress anything as I recorded it. There’s no way of going back.

    I’m pretty sure most people do all that stuff in the DAW afterwards – to be honest it’s probably got better compressors in it anyway.

    Not sure I understand the question.

    Are you playing real drums, electric drums or are they a midi track on some sort of sequencer?

    The QU-16 can not turn a midi signal into sound.

    I think there’s enough space for an extended display to show:

    All input & output meters with gain reduction.
    All fader levels – these do not need to work, just show their current level.
    All the mute buttons – again, these do not need to work, just show their current state).
    RTA
    The main parameters of at least the first two effects.
    The status of any USB playback / recording.
    The time

    It would be nice to access this screen simply by turning the iPad to portrait orientation so that no extra buttons are required.

    I think this would allow me to see all the things I can see when using an analogue desk & outboard rack.

    Have I forgotten anything?

    I’ve been a life time Behringer hater. But they are really doing a good job communicating what they’re planning to do in the next months

    Is publishing pictures & spec for a desk, then it just completely vanishing without a trace, doing a good job?

    Probably not a good idea to discus that here though.

    Good call Lou. I’ll second that.

    As I’m here & it’s related, I’ll be cheeky and repeat my request to make this screen available on the iPad too!

    Ok, seriously…no need to patronize.

    You’re right. I apologise.

    Surely a WAV file created on Pro Tools should be the same as one created on any other DAW (for any given sample & bit setting).

    Are you saying that Pro Tools is creating some form of non standard WAV file?
