Sadly, that is a long way off.

Keith did say that they are looking into having the SQ MixPad App have some offline capabilities? What that means, dunno.


That's how Mackie handles the DL-series stuff.  I've built entire shows on the app for my DL1608 and then when it connects to the mixer it asks if you want to upload the iPad show to the mixer and voila, you're live with all your settings.  Offline without a computer (just the app). I'm guessing that's what they meant, but I don't have any inside information.

And this is a big deal for me.  I love when I have a handful of stage plots for the weekend, and can do most of the planning at my leisure during the week.

+1.  I really appreciate having X32 edit on my MacBook but could live with a tablet version for SQ if that's all that AH is offering.  I've been complaining about its lack for the QU series for a long while now (along with many others on the AH forums) but would welcome a SQ version as that's the direction my venue is heading anyway.

Regarding offline editor:
https://community.allen-heath.com/forums/topic/offline-editor-3

They said that Midi control would be enabled, it wasn't.
TCP/IP midi control isn't enabled.

USB Midi is.

I was wrong, only DAW control. No MIDI control yet. I don't recall if they said it was coming Q3.

Yes they did say the MIDI control would be in V1.3. I have an email trail where they said it would be and then just before 1.3 was to be released they said it wouldn't be. I was really hoping that the SQ series would be good but I was seriously disappointing when I had one for a few months.

Ahh, too bad.

It probably was being tested, but they saw some issues during FQT. Tried to delay it and fix it, but ultimately couldn't. Thus the Oct 9th release.

To each their own, I really enjoy mine. I've learned to fly across the controls and can direct people without experience to the pages they want to access from memory without struggle.

The lack of an apparently basic feature like HPF on mix outs still puzzles me.

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.

And on the A&H Forum a lot of people are not happy.
Just a friendly reminder to check the price of the mixer.  There will always be a wish list.  I'm not defending A&H for leaving anything off the mixer and I hope everyone's feature dreams are realized, however some perspective is in order - it's a lot of mixer for the money, and it is WAY, WAY more mixer than the X32.

Specifically, now that V1.3 is released; absolutely - in some (most?) ways. Tie lines are impressive they don't use processing channels to accomplish it too.

They have more work to do, but in 12mo the features have gone from it passes extremely good sounding audio but that's it to 90-95% of promised (in literature) capabilities.

The MixPad app is still incredibly lacking.

True, one thing at a time?

I'm speculating that next is to finish the Midi TCP/IP & USB control that they had to leave off of V1.3

Then, app improvements (or at same time).

While I wish they would get on de-esser & MBC I bet it'll be 6mo before that happens.

Hopefully, we get something for xmas :)

Main thing with V1.3 is all the under-hood changes. Now that that is all out of the way I bet they can make changes quicker.
