MAir or XAir for Midas MR12
« on: December 16, 2018, 02:46:57 am »

I have a newly opened Midas MR12 I've decided to use for a small Christmas charity event.
Ipad and dual channel router via ethernet is the setup. Been spending hours on youtube to get up to speed first time not using a real desk with a multicore....and find most videos show the xair and doesnít quite equate to my MAir layout, ie i cant move channels etc so before I spend more time on this should I be running the Xair instead on the ipad and will that work fine and is it preferable?

Also where do I check for firmware options, is that via the ipad and if required is there a simple procedure for upgrading to the latest version?

Thanks for any assistance,

Are you using the pc/mac version at all?

You need the pc/mac version to install a new firmware. This app will also show you the currently installed version.

It sounds like you have no connection between your ipad and mr12?

Thanks for your reply Robert.
I must have been a bit unclear in my post so my main question is as follows.
1. Running an Apple iPad to access a Midas MR12 is it preferable to run the Midas MAir software or the Behringer XAir?

Both are downloaded and operational on the ipad. I do not have a Mac nor any other laptop so iPad is the access mode. I was not aware that there was a possibility i could be running a PC version on this iPad? I didnt think that was possible?

2. Ok really part of above but most tutorials I find use the Behringer interface and thus does not exactly follow the procedures required in the midas version so it made me wonder if that version is the preferred interface.

If they both can control the mixer, use the one that you like the best.

Having the latest firmware is generally a good idea, but if it works, don't change it right before show time, as you never know what might happen.  The music group has done a pretty fine job though on their firmware. I've yet to be burned by doing an update.  I can't say that with other devices that I've got. :/

There is no difference in functionality. It is just different skins. I prefer the midas look as it is more pleasing to my eyes.

No, there is no pc version for the ipad.

The ipad app is more for live combat while the pc/mac version have more features like firmware update, offline editing, etc...

Any differences you may find in the videos are probably due to an older app using a slightly different gui that the more recent ones.

Thats awesome, what a cool unit, anyone want an old multicore haha. Iím switching seamlessly between skins and am getting the hang of this. The ipad doesnít do the drag and drop of editing channel layout like the videos show and doesn't have that channel edit button but Iím working my way around it. Having a ball, thanks guys!

The X or M app will both do the exact same thing. They just have different looks to them. So if you can get one running the other should as well. Functionally the X and M are the same and both work with each others control software. The M is a superior product, but that is beside the point.
