X Air FMP Remote is an iOS App (iPhone and iPad) to control the Faders, Mutes and Pans of the Behringer X Air series of consoles.
Addressed issue with USB playback on XR12. Added 'Reload' and 'Play Folder' buttons to 'Transport' page. Established that the reason for non-playback of some WAV files is due to the 'optimized' flag not being set, when 'afinfo' is run on the file from Terminal (optimized will play, 'not optimized' won't play).
Ratings and Reviews
Great idea with much potential
Pondered on buying this at £9 but the idea of having long-faders was enough to lure me in.
Takes over 30 seconds to start up which in a live situation is not acceptable, especially after a crash (ipad air 1st gen)
If the user could create custom groups of faders (like the behringer app) this would be very useful.
Took the app to a gig doing FOH sound for a band and spent the gig using xair as needed instant and full functionality that this app couldn't deliver. The tedious startup was too painful to bear...
Behringer (or whatever they call themselves nowadays) could learn a thing or two from the app, notably the portrait long-faders control.
Also this is the only way to control via an iphone as xair is only available for ipad.(not used on iphone yet and unlikely band members will pay £9 just to do their own monitor mix)
Looking forward to improvements and updates, which the author appears to maintain regularly and obviously has a keen interest and passion for.
Slow app opening
Not as smooth as behringer app
Phantom and phase indicators dont show/update current state.
It identified an x12 as an x18, minor detail.
Paired faders dont move as a pair visually.
Pressing the help button crashed, requiring another long app start-up.
Cost £9 (beers are on me)
X Air app
Downloaded as I turned up to a gig and realised I’d left my iPad at home. Very disappointed. Crash after crash, slow and unusable. I downloaded another app afterwards that does the basics far better. Shame that you cannot change the EQ or see the input levels on a meter. Makes setting gains very difficult.
Save your money!
