An update for the Flow 8, though I don't know if anyone has one yet.
https://community.musictribe.com/discussions/156693/310351/major-flow-8-update-now-live
The firmware update 11739 for FLOW 8
works with remote app FLOW MIX 1.2 and Windows ASIO/WDM driver version 5.0.


Firmware 11739 is introducing a new memory structure.
* Snapshots stored on the hardware will be deleted!
* Snapshots previously stored in the Apps SNAPSHOT LIBRARY can still be used.

This new FLOW Firmware version contains:
New USB mode
1. Streaming/Recording (switches between 2x4 and 10x4 USB config)
2. Up to 4 channel USB playback (USB OUT 1/2, USB OUT 3/4)

 {big ol' snip}


This all makes really good sense and should have been the feature set the FLOW was introduced with.

Preordered in mid-November 2020, still no ETA (as of 22 Feb 2021). Nice "upgrades", but it's only Vaporware at this point  :( .

Same, I was told by Sweetwater that it is on a "boat" and they're hoping to see it arrive in April. I assume that means delivered by May?

On a boat may be wishful thinking. Rumors Ive heard from my shipping friends say there is a shortage of containers in China. They got back to work fast and shipped product, but nothing is coming back, so no containers to use.

Not only that, but a lot of North American ports are operating at reduce capacity, so even if it is on a ship, that ship may end up spending a while idling outside of Long Beach when it does finally arrive.

Largest restriction IMO is BT audio and BT control isnt possible. Only one at a time.


Edit: not true, see Robert's post.

There seems to be dissenting opinions here.
It can or cannot do BT audio and control simultaneously? Do you have a link to "Robert's post"?

It can do both, from two different devices if necessary.

From the Andertons website,

Quote from: Andertons.co.uk
The BT audio connection for playing audio back can be connected independently from the FLOW 8 remote application. While using BT Audio for playback on one mobile device, BT LE can be used separately on another device for the control application, if you wish.

In the spirit of the season, this thread is being resurrected to update inventory status. I received a call today (07 April, 2021) that the Behringer Flow 8 I preordered in mid-November 2020 shipped from the candy store today. Should be here in a couple of days.

I'm looking for a small mixer for solo/duo gigs and thought of the Flow 8?  Just looked and the Midas MR12 is now priced at $399.  That seems to be a lot of mixer for the price?  Now $250 vs $399?

Agreed. I'd like to see more XLR inputs on the MR12, but that's an attractive price.

I see these two as totally different use cases. My interest in the Flow 8 is for small Corporate or Break-out rooms where someone from the organization simply wants to be able to grab a knob and turn something up or down without having to load an app and wifi in. The plus to the Flow 8 is that most of the stuff is out of reach (only accessible via app) so *in theory* the risk of someone seriously screwing things up is limited. We shall see...
