I'm sure there are going to be a lot of upset XP users and I'm sure Presonus isnt happy about it either. But there has to be a line somewhere I guess.


The line where Presonus kicks the long time users in the ass. As XP is a system that works for lots of us I really cannot see the need to take that out of the service. Same sh*t as those Ipad apps that stop working on Ipad1 after updates because they were blown up with .... retina air.

Luckily I did read your words in the FORUM of the XP support. NO word about that in the release notes pdf.

Be aware that there is no way back once the old app version is gone from your I-Device unlesss you have a backup from the early days.

For those of you who lost and want to get back the 1.3 RemoteApp I uploaded it to ul.to I dont know if you need a jailbroken Ipad to reinstall as I have mine jailbroken and just drag and drop it into Itunes onto the I-Device I want it to be installed.

I feel ya Henry, I've got XP systems that I can't use for one reason or another anymore either.

But it is what it is.

And thanks for the link to the 1.3 app.

Hey Mono,

Thanks for the firmware notice. I am very glad to report that 1.4 worked flawlessly with 1.7 at a gig Friday night. So nice to see everything come into the iPad (EQs and all) with no Zero Reset or any other foolishness.

I haven't had time to go through the rest of the bells and whistles, but for straight ahead, board to laptop (MacBook Pro) to router to iPad, absolutely stable first load, and glitch free in operation.

Thanks Presonus and all the beta guys, well done.

These are great tools!
I loaded UC 1.7 on my Lenovo T61p with W7-64bit OS just fine. The strange part was trying to control my two linked 16.4.2 mixers. I ended up unlinking the two before the tools began functioning.
The other strange thing is that my ad-hoc wireless acted strange. UC could see my iPad, but my iPad running SL-Remote could not see my 16.4.2 mixers.
Can you advise please?

First of our issues is a known limitation in the Smaart system. It can only be run from a single mixer due to the channels that it uses for readings.

Second issue is more likely an Ad Hoc issue than a Universal Control issue. Switch to a dedicated wireless router (borrow on for a few minutes to test if needed) and see if running that way doesn't clear it up for you.

Thanks Mono,
Borrowed a router, my linked 16.4.2 mixers are in my SL-Remote now.
Yup, still can't control the tools, no pink noise, when both mixers are connected.
This isn't a show stopper, I can get the house EQ set using the one mixer, then re-assign them for the show!
Thanks for your help.

hello again everyone. ive been gone for a bit due to work schedule, but looks like I came back just in time for a new UC. does anyone know the stability of this version with 2 16.4.2's? I know smart wont work properly, but getting scribble stips to work again after last update will help the church out. I didnt see anything in the release notes about 2 boards is why I ask.

Used the SMAART wizard on a gig last weekend and it worked great. The ballroom we were in was very wet and we were getting a lot of bounceback off the back wall. Much improved after the setup and a little tweaking of the main FOH speakers reduced much of the sound reflecting off the back wall.

The only issue we had was a 2 second drop-out of the sound caused by a bad cord on the power adapter for the MacBook Pro. The battery discharged and the laptop went to sleep disconnecting the Firewire and causing the dropout. We didn't notice it before it happened as we were out in the house on the iPad. (Perhaps a warning on the iPad if VSL sees the computer getting ready to sleep or run out of juice?) Replaced the power adapter and reconnected the firewire between songs and all was well.

What other mixer could you buy that actually gets better the longer you own it?

So let me get this straight. UC 1.7 will not work with XP and they droped support for it? I can't afford to go out and buy a new rig. Please say it isn't so!

For what it's worth, my XP works fine for the last several weeks. Had an initial crisis where it acted as if the computer could not see the mixer, but I restarted everything again and it has been working fine since.

From what I understand XP isn't capable of doing some of the things that SMAART has going in the newest release...

I'm not sure what things XP might be incapable of, but I seem to be able to do everything in these, althought I only played around with them, did not validate the results: http://forumsarchive.presonus.com/posts/list/31708.page#213265

I recognize what it takes to develop a product and do all the necessary testing and support for each OS. Dedicating more resources to XP means either a) less goes to new features and bug fixes; b) higher costs for products; or c) less pay for employees which eventually leads to less quality in the products.

On the other hand, End of Life for XP is in the spring of 2014, I think that perhaps PreSonus should have kept official support going until at least then, maybe even at the expense of Windows 8 or Vista. This market seems to be one where people stick with what works far more than chasing the latest fads.

It has nothing to do with chasing the latest fads Mep. They opted not to do it for good reason.

Use of 1.7 or later on an XP system is at your own risk and there is nothing that Presonus developers can do to fix it due to limitations of the XP operating system.
