I agree. For all the stuff that goes on during a live show..even a small one... I find myself controlling 3-4 things at a time and that is impossible on the SL iPad app... Hopefully not on the X 32 app but I still want to have faders and knobs. It is almost a physical rhythm kind of a thing. Like the difference between a real car and a video game.
All true, but there are situations where a FOH position is prohibited or just not practical, and those situations do not usually require a lot of channels. I love the iPad app, but it doesn't totally replace my snake and a traditional FOH when needed.
Hey Jay,I also get hired because of skills, not gear. For my style of dynamic mixing of either big rock bands with backing tracks or 10 piece horn bands with many inputs, my point was that on an iPad app where I can't get to all faders at once and without a VCA screen I can't get to all the things I need without endless scrolling.. Which is not fast enough for prime time in mist cases. I end up mixing on everything and anything, I just have preferences if I have the choice. I can do a better job with VCAs more easily than not. I do a lot of pulling a section down a Db or 2 during verses, playing with leads and effects returns in real time, lowering all vocals a bit when no one is singing to reduce stage hash..etc. I also do a bit of mixing with EQ... Say on a guitar channel during a verse or when the always consistent guitarists......hits his preset that has 6 Db of boost at 3K. You know what I am saying. I see guys now always mixing with an iPad and so never consider a lot that I believe they would if in front of a console.
Been lusting ever sense I had seen the previews for the X32.Hopefully this year I'll swing the cash down on the table.
