Yes. This would have been my preference prior to actually going digital, because I'd like to see all my controls at one time, but everyone working with MI equipment is already accustomed to using something as small as an Ipad that they can carry around in one hand. I doubt many of us would actually switch back to having a console size unit that we need to plant on a table even if it is wireless. I don't usually have a place to sit with my Ipad let alone a console. And I'm still going to want my Ipad for setting monitor mixes.
I am 80% sure I want the A&H QU16. Can it interface with more than one iPad set the same time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
My primary attraction to digital boards is processing consolidation done cheap. I have a MixWiz and can't imagine I'll throw it overboard anytime soon. But I have to say, that as digital boards costing around $2500 or less keep entering the market, with compression, delay, crossover, FX, gating and EQ on every channel, I am tempted because piecemealing all that is costly and I would have to guess how many compression channels I really need, etc.So what I would love to see is a series of digital processing units that give you say, 16, 24, 32 or 48 channels of dsp that can be added via inserts along with its own insert, than can be added to the analog board of your choice. I understand you wouldn't have recallable subgroups and the like in this unit, but frankly, I don't need those. Let's say a 16 channel version costs me $1000 to $1500. I get to keep the familiarity, reliability and high quality of the analog board I love, plus gain all that DSP much cheaper than multiple units that take up lots of physical space and add to weight. The form factor I'm envisioning would be a 1u rackmount with a wifi interface to the iPad, but just like the x32, it could be offered in that compact package or ones with more of a surface.To my way of thinking, this is similar to a loudspeaker management system like the DriveRack where you have multiple digital processing functions in one box, separate from the speakers or amps whereas an active box would have it all combined into one box. Sometimes you just love your passive speakers and want all the processing to be small and inexpensive.If a full on x32 can be had for what? a little over $2000 IIRC? then a subset of its abilities should cost less. So they can keep tempting me with entry level digital, but THAT is what I would want.

No. As a specialty item with limited marketability to a few impractical dreamers it would be more expensive. You're completely missing the economy of scale.
Although I understand economies of scale, you're right. I didn't consider the possibility that my situation and desired solution might not be common enough to warrant a market.
