Another gripe I have about the X32 series is the super bright red LED's next to the input XLR ports that indicate 48V is enabled. 100% of the things I plug in via XLR will not break if 48V is present, yet I can see those LED's all the way from the other end of the room. I think I'll be taking a Sharpie to those when I get a chance.
As far as features missing, I REALLY, REALLY wish there would be a way to use a full sized console to control this unit over ethernet/wifi. Since it can be done with the iPad
I think that in the not too distant future, most of the clever stuff will be in the stage box and the mixer will just be a control surface.Steve.
in 2005 Lakewood Church took over the Compaq center in Houston, and turned it into a church. They bought an innovason mixing solution. The actual mixer was backstage in racks, with 3 control surfaces. One FOH, one monitors, and one broadcast. So that was 8 years ago, the technology was in use. When do we get it? Well, actually you can do it now, put your digital mixer onstage and run it remotely by wifi or cat 5 cable. I agree, it's just around the corner, the stage box will be the mixer. The new little mackie is an example of the missing link. It has no control surface of it's own.
You mean like iLive, profiles, d-shows, etc?
Wasn't the PM1D's mix engine in the rack portion making the console mostly a control surface? It debuted in 1999. There may have been other control surface / mix engine setups before. I haven't been around long enough to remember or involved enough to have been exposed to most of the available products over the last 20 years.#topicswerve
Yes, exactly like that. The X32 systems could have the capability to do that. I did see a solution that used a PC in between to sort of make it happen. But it would be awesome if in the firmware you could say o.k, this unit now controls this other unit. Life would be grand if that was in version 2.0.
