The MixPad app is still incredibly lacking.

I almost always end up doing the full sound check from a tablet so having a fully-featured app is a must. I'll mix the show from the console but at that point, all of the serious configuration and processing is set.

...question - what doesn't the app do that you need?

Without walking through the manual looking for features, a quick glance indicates:
-no HPF on EQ
-no channel library saving/loading
-no channel naming (maybe I'm missing how to do that)

Those are the first things I noticed that I use often when setting up.
Just like with the Qu, I hope they get to feature parity between the app and the console. That will make the SQ system more attractive to me.

I don't think you can do memory functions on the ipad app - i.e. load & save to the library.  I think this is how A&H inteded it to work and I don't see that as an issue when you have a fully functioned work surface ... but there is a HP filter control and naming on the app  :).

In the middle right between the channel meters there is a "handle" to either open the details (drag the handle down) or to expand the faders (drag the handle up).   Drag the handle down and you can access the HPF control, name and set the colors for the channels. You can also see the compressor and gate time function graph.

With the handle down there are some quick tabs on the left so you can flick quickly between the expanded fuctions for the pre-amp, compressor, gate and EQ ... neat  :)

Peter, I don't think there is a HPF on any of the output EQs.  This has been a feature that users have been wanting on the SQ and for years on the QU.

We are talking about 2 different things, I was talking about accessing the channel HPF on the app.

 ... but you are correct, there is no HPF on the outputs, and it is something I have also requested on the outputs.  The work around in some cases is to send your monitors post insert (i think) that way you get the channel HPF but not the
EQ.

Yippie.  Kinda surprised no announcement of SQ related hardware of any kind, like a dx2412.  Didnt really expect what Id really like to see, an SQ level equivalent of Qu-SB or Qu-Pac.

I think a dx4816 is coming first (hopefully with ME expander ports)

Nothing at the A&H SQ firmware update page yet.

John

That image was taken down so I doubt this is (supposed to be) public knowledge.
And like all the other releases the update page wasn't updated until the firmware was actually released.

I'm thinking late March into April.

Also, that slide could be faked...
