Customer Reviews

Please allow for dowloads of past versions

Love working with the app and all the flexability, but it is very annoying when a new version is released and someone in the band's iphone updates. We have 3 ipads and 8 iphones that we use to control the mixer. If an auto update accidently happens we need to update the firmware and all 11 devices. Very time consuming. If the last verson or two was avaiable we could just roll back that one device. Other app builders have compatibility versions that can be used for this reason. I've tried to move the older version from one device to another, but with out any luck. Please concider posting the last few for this reason, until we decide to make a mass upgrade.

Enough with the firmware updates!

I get a firmware update on a major release, but from 4.5 to 4.5.2 and again from 4.5.2 to 4.5.3? This is crazy.

So I'm at a show with a iPad running version 4.5.2 in the cradle with a dead battery. I try to use my spare iPad with version 4.5 running. It won't work, so I upgrade with the only version available on the App Store, 4.5.3. It still won't work, because, oh, of course, there's another firmware upgrade. Now I'm going to be mixing on an iPhone tonight.

You need to either make each version running new firmware a new version number, or find another way to make multiple versions available.

Need PRE and POST for every channel!

It's a very good app and I like a lot, but it need add the function Pre and Post for every individual channel! Please mackie
