Hello, I am working for some

Hello, I am working for some time with the DL32R and would like another function in the master fader software - please make a ducking tracks of vocals possible - the routing of a vocal track on the compressor. thank you in advance heiko merrbach

I've got one question:

I've got one question: Now can I make a DL 1608 work with 2 Ipads - 1 1st Generation an 1 3rd generation?

There is no current version

There is no current version of Master Fader that supports the 1st generation iPad, I am sorry to say.

Thanks for the feature

Thanks for the feature suggestion. We actually have a place to submit feature requests. You can suggest this feature and other users can vote it up. While this list is not our sole source of information when we decided what features to add, it is certainly something we pay close attention to and try to accommodate as we continue app development. Here's the site:

Hello, I am a DL1608 user.

Hello, I am a DL1608 user. Love the mixer. However, I am stumped. I cannot figure out out to delete recorded songs from the Master Fader app. Even in iTunes. You can export songs and that's great! Can you help a fella out here by telling me how to delete the growing list of wavs? Thank you

Okay, never mind. I figured

Okay, never mind. I figured it out although not as obvious as it might seem. In iTunes on your apps page next to the Master fader app in the window are all the wav files. To delete them you have to first select them (Duh, right?) then to delete them you actually hve to use your Keyboard "Delete" key. Not so obvious since you would think you could right click or hit a delete button somewhere in itunes. Anyway, That's how you delete the recorded songs. Use the Delete Key on your Keyboard, Lol. Hope I am not the only lame-O that had this issue. :-)

You can actually have both.

You can actually have both. If you are wanting to use Master Fader 2, then you can download Master Fader Classic here . In order to install it into your mixer running 3.0 or higher, you will need to hold down the recessed button on the rear of the mixer while powering it on, then continuing to hold it for at least 4 seconds. Dock the ipad into the mixer and open Master Fader Classic. It will then ask you to install the firmware.

My Fader application question

My Fader application question... Could I use the app (on an iPhone 5 or iTouch) to control the bus assignment(s) and level for one input channel (on a DL 1608)...?
