We already have a 24.4.2 of the first generation and think about a 32.4.2.
My questions:
- will our MacBook (17", Intel Core i7, 2.2 GHz, OSX 10.6. still be good and powerful enough for the necessary version of VSL, capture ...
- I learned, that I can connect iPad directly to the board. What about the RTA functions? Are they available on the iPad now or just on a connected PC?
- how do the 32 fades fit on the 17" screen? Or don't they and I need to scroll?
Thanks for any answers.
We are glad to perform with:
SL 24.4.2
MBP 17"
iPad2
QMix (on several iPhones)
2 x KS-Audio CPD12 (Front)
2 x KS-Audio CPD1 (delay)
10 x KS-Audio CL208 (monitors)

It should still work just fine. Though you made need to do a partial OS upgrade (don't go past 10.8.x, Mavericks still needs some work.

The iPad does not connect directly to the mixer. You need a wireless router to connect them.

RTA, Spectrograph and Smaart are audio functions and will require firewire connection to the computer. They still do not appear on the iPad app in any way.

Some scrolling may be needed to get them all on your screen. But I doubt it.

Thanks Mono.
Do you know if the MacBook Pro is capable of the new firewire s800, which the 32.4.2. has?

Should be. If it has the port for 800 then its compatible. If it has a thunderbolt then you'll just need to pick up the thunderbolt to firewire converter from apple and you should be good to go.

Apple no longer puts Firewire ports on the computers but the Thunderbolt to FW adapter works.

Thunderbolt v1 works. There are issues with v2. Be sure to do your homework on that before buying.

I'm with you on that one Rob. Universally supported on any computer that meets the spec and has an ethernet port.

Probably still have to tweak windows machines for it though.

It is not the future. It is the present. The MI companies are just now catching on. We install contractors have been using Dante for years.

No, you will not have to tweak anything. Dante is just the interface. There is Virtual Soundcard software and a virtual patch bay, allowing users to route anything on the network to go anywhere, any number of times. There are many Dante devices out there, in various forms, allowing users to get as little as two channels on and off the network.

The drag about Cobranet was latency. Latency increases with network size. Dante does not have this limitation. Dante will work on existing networks with off the shelf routers, switches, etc.

If I replace the inserted IO-card (that has the firewire connectors) by the DANTE-card (if it would be available), will the ethernet and the firewire connectors be gone? And if so, how can I connect cablewise to a router (for remote access) and to VSL or Capture (via firewire)?

They have not released the cards yet, so who knows? If you are sending audio to the computer via Dante, you will likely not need the FW anymore anyway.

I am running Mavericks 10.9.2 with the latest firmware and Universal Control Ai. The console I have has issues. I have generated a service ticket, submitted pics, video, etc. They have issues with the RTA and SMAART software showing 20Hz activity, even when there is nothing patched to the console. There is some activity at 20kHz as well. There is distortion and noise with nothing patched. This particular console is more noisy than the 24. It sounds like I have open mics under air conditioner vents, with all inputs and outputs muted. They say it is firmware related and updates will fix it. They do not have an ETA.

I had a very similar issue after the latest firmware update. There were other problems as well but performing a Firmware Recovery is what solved my issues.

A Firmware Recovery is a combination of a firmware update and factory reset. Make sure you save everything is saved properly because it will erase everything internal.
