Soundcraft ViSi Remote iPad app
« on: March 16, 2017, 11:11:00 am »

Not sure if this is being posted in the right forum, please move if need be.

I am operating a small show this week, and using the 24fader Soundcraft Si Expression console.  The console display leaves a bit to be desired, so I installed the ViSi Remote app on my iPad to better visualize EQ, and the dynamics.  I can't for the life of me find out how to set the app to 'follow console'.  Does this feature exist for this app?  By 'follow console', Im looking for the iPads current view to snap to whatever channel or mix bus I'm selecting on the console surface.  If this feature does exist, can you point out how to turn it on?

thanks!
Brian

Also, make sure that you run the latest FW on the console.

The console locks up if the ipad app crashes on older FW.

yes, I had to update the console and the app. the handshake seems solid, just really disappointed there's no 'follow console'.  if there's any sound craft ppl lurking, please put this on the software update ;)

You could try putting the request (sounds like a good one to me) on the Soundcraft Si Series FB page, although it has been pretty quiet from SC since the last update was released.  I'm still hoping for ViSi app access to effects and tap tempo.

I'm still hoping they give us Vi users something more than faders, like ANYTHING. Useless app and been the same for multiple years

That feature does not exist.  In fact, almost no features exist on that app.  It's by far the most useless one out there.   Vi is one of my go to desks but the app is very disappointing.

The Si part of the app is ok. You can at least select channels and EQ, etc.
The Vi app is so bad it would be better if it didn't exist. The Vi is my personal favorite desk but for certain clients it has prevented me from specing the desk.
I've been so disappointed in Soundcraft abandoning the app I just typically spec Midas or x32 desks instead.

I've found the Si functionality of the app to be quite good - it does all I need and want and I can get around on it very fast. It definitely was an incomplete idea on someone's part though.... just like the implementation of DMX on my Performer desks :-(

Mutes would be a nice basic feature on the app.
