The plan is to just run our monitors through their board and let everyone run their own mix remotely. Mario Re: X32 Android App any info on transmitting the solo'd or selected channel audio to an tablet? Odd that the S16 digital snake is so expensive when compared to the X32 products. I would love to give this a Five Star rating, but. I will never trust this company again!! The idea was to have a house tablet but it seems like it's not going to work. There are some things that need to be worked out before this app could ever be a tool for a live environment. Yes, it is a somewhat large investment, but it allows you to accommodate for multiple scenarios.
At the first break I went up to talk and they showed me the Mackie iPad app and after literally a 60-second introduction I took it and mixed their next two sets free on my part. The layouts change a bit to accommodate the aspect ratio of the display. Recently David released an X-Air Mixing Station which is on-par with the X32 version. The layout and functionality are also perfect. They've been using it for about a year now they used a Presonus before that. Android, though using a linux kernel, runs on Java. It's definitely a deal breaker for me in the realm of purchase.
The large screen and high resolution was nice, but due to the clunky touch control it probably would have been better if I used a stylus I actually preferred the mixing experience on my little 7in android tablet Nexus 7. If you need more inputs, you have to go to a bigger model. It runs on phones and tablets if Android is your thing. I am very much active in email. Anyone hear anything about a future Android app? Many times, that has involved buying more features e. Can we get an update for this app, please? She borrow's my phone and I avoid her's like the plague. Definitely seems like a really good, really versatile board.
Aside from this, you can consider the X32 Rack a full 22 input mixer. I have all the firmware from the board as well as Airport Utility up to date and still it wont connect. Plus I think you're going to come into a bandwidth issue. Great goods from you, man. You're paying for a power supply, chassis, 16ch of remote controllable preamps, 24ch of converters 16in, 8out , and the networking capabilities. Brian, Thanks for your explanation, it is very helpful in understanding why manufacturers don't write Android apps.
Why in Gods name would you develop a Linux app and not an Android app. It takes several tries to get the mutes to turn on and off, especially when you have sends on fader engaged. Have a great day all, Mario. I use an X32rack and S-16 in my studio, so the iPad app is my control surface. The Mixing station on android connects and beautifully controls the x32 in live situations perfectly. This version is not useable, as many have documented. The official stupid app by behringer doesnt work but a random third party takes care of it fine.
Mainly for preset management, easier flow, recording options, increased reliability. Are amazing consoles, but this x32 m32 stuff is still just starter pieces of gear. If an iphone is making noise, the shut off is always on the top screen in plain sight. I'm not saying it isn't more difficult to write Android apps but given the number of people out there who prefer that platform, I think its time they start. The developer testing model is much nicer if you are targeting Apple products.
Now that Behringer has left us hanging for months with a screwed up mixing app, I have to consider switching to the Mackie or Presonus equivalent. It's a real bummer during a live show when I only have a second to make changes and the app is temporary frozen. It would be nice if the x32-rack could wirelessly send a stereo signal to the control device for the selected channel and a lot less hassle than a wireless kit. The Behringer X 32 mixer is groundbreaking for the home studio owner. At this point I'm very tempted just to buy an iPad because I can use it for any of the almost any of the digital mixers I use at my day job. Android has more apps than the Apple App store. If it possible then email me.
This wifi worked great until about the time I got the update. But your own stupid app on ipad will not do what its supposed to do. Don't have that problem with any of the other groups. I'll admit it is in deed pretty slick just thought I'd see if Behringer made one. Completely unacceptable when you have products that will only operate through the use of this app. Please revert to the old or fix this issue.
I use the app in a very complex church environment. Notice, that you don't need to hit the fader-cap - any vertical move in a channel will move the appropriate fader. Lots of guys use it. Get your act together guys and please fix it. I realistically only need probably 20 channels at the most. Not sure I could even sell the X32 in good faith if the mixing app doesn't work correctly. Which brings up a couple of questions: A would we be limiting ourselves in our choice of available sound engineers by telling them they have to use our X32? Also, I'm now having to reconnect to the X32 wifi whenever I wake the iPad up again.
Fortunately I was able to downgrade to 2. You will need it later on. Odd that the S16 digital snake is so expensive when compared to the X32 products. Or are most sound engineers familiar with that board or other similar digital mixers these days? The application replicates the X32 control surface with all faders, display screens and major controls right on the desktop. Some useful links: audio-forum with it's own X32-thread A forum for X32-users run by Per Sovik. I don't think an Android X32 app is going to prove terribly difficult for Behringer.
