Yeah... It seems that all audio companies hate Android. The only mixer with Android mixing is the x32 and it's an unofficial(but quite good) app.

Yeah... They seem overpriced to me compared to the x32 Rack. You can get the x32 Rack($1200 list) and an S16($900 list) for quite a bit less than the Presonus 32ch version and at least they've been out a little while.

You're confusing List and MAP.  The prices you see online are the MAP (minimum advertised Price) which is often shown as a discount off of list price.  Nobody outside of government or big business without a clue pays list price for audio gear. :)

The pricing of the Presonus system is extremely comparable to the X32 Rack on all fronts.

And that's with good reason.  The iPad has by far and away a much higher marketshare of tablets than everyone else combined.  If you start playing with Android stuff, you either have to pick which devices you're going to be compatible with, leaving out weaker models, or you have to cut your feature set to be compatible with the lowest common denominator.  It's MUCH higher to develop that way, and for a smaller market.  It's no wonder the iPad is the platform of choice.

Just got the weekly from B&H and the 32 rack lists for $1999.95 on pre-order.


Personally, I prefer the 36DD rack myself...

That's not the list price Dick.

I don't know about other governments, but I don't pay map much less list.

My bad, thanks for the clarification.

Harder to develop, yes, but it's not impossible. I would say that most apps on the Play Store don't try to cater to low end devices; most devs pick a hardware level they want to support and don't worry about all the crap hardware out there. Just making an app only support Jelly Bean(4.1+) and above you cull out a bunch of old junk devices. I would say that more of a market would appear if they started supporting Android. IMO, Android is much easier to develop for than it was a few years ago. If they really want to weed out older hardware just make it support KitKat(4.4) and above; only very new devices run it at the moment.
