Samsung and Android M solution!
25. Apr 2016
Mixing Station

For the last couple of weeks I did more testing than ever before. I wanted to resolve the wifi issue with Samsung devices and Android 6.
Well apparently that’s not required anymore as Samsung confirmed they screwed up the wifi driver in the latest update.

Here are some sources:

As there is nothing I can do about the current situation the only solution is to wait for the next system update:
„Samsung has received news about these issues and is now planning to release a second version of the Android 6.0.1 update to fix problems with Galaxy devices.“

Even though I had a Galaxy S6 test device I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue. This was due to a newer firmware version which was already installed on the device.
After some talk with some xda developers they confirmed that the OOTB Android 6 version is older on a lot of devices which already have upgraded some weeks ago.

There are some unofficial „solutions“ which may or may not resolve the issue:
Note: I didn’t tried any of these! Do at your own risk.

  • Delete the wifi and add it again
  • Enable developer options-> „Use old DHCP client“
  • Keep wifi always enabled
  • Settings->Backup and Reset->Reset Network
  • Factory reset

Android M / Samsung issues
21. Mrz 2016
Mixing Station

As some users reported Mixing Station does currently have some issues with Android M (sync does not complete – search works).

I tested the app with the official Android emulator and it runs just fine. As all reports were from users who use Samsung devices I assume it’s a Samsung / Android M related problem.
I’m still trying to get an Android M hardware device to check if the issue also applies to other devices.

Currently the issues was found on the following devices:

  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Note 5

Please let me know if you’re using Android M (with or without issues) so I can track the error down.

Mixing Station ….?
9. Feb 2016
Mixing Station

Mixing Station is currently available for over 10 Mixers from 3 different manufactures.
My plan for the future is to further extend the compatibility and include other manufactures.
Therefore I wanted to ask you which mixer should be supported next.

 

 

Next mixer support?

Mixing Station

Hi,
I just migrated to a new bug tracking system.

New bug reports / feature request can now be submited via this link:

https://dev-core.org/mixing-station/mixing-station-bugs-feature-requests/

You can also register on phabricator with your google or disqus account if you want to comment on tasks or start writing on the new wiki page.

It’s currently quite empty but I will add some content soon.

You can now change the threshold and ratio / range by dragging the points inside the diagram.
In addition to that the pre / post and gain reduction singal is now shown as time based diagram in the background.

X32 channel link measurement
23. Aug 2014
Misc

Some X32 users reported a sound changeĀ when linking 2 (already) hard panned channels. So I thought it would be good to measure what’s happening.

Measurement

Interface: Saffire Pro 24

Signal path

Reference: Interface Out –> Interface In 3

Measure: Interface Out –> X32 Aux In 1 (routed to CH 01 and CH 02)

X32 Main out (Out 15, 16) -> Interface In 1, 2

X32 Setup

Firmware 2.06

Aux In 1 is routed to CH 01 and CH 02. CH 01 is hard panned to the left Ā and CH 02 hard panned to the right

Every processing is disabled on CH 01, 02 and MainLR (No gate, no eq, no inserts, …)

 

Note: Goal of the measurement is to detect a relative difference, not a absolute value!

X32 LR

 

 

This measurement shows the frequency response of the complete X32 signal path (In+Out)

As you can see the two curves (green and blue) match eachother. This shows us that the left and right channel are exactly the same.

So let’s save the curve and link the two channels.

 

X32 LR compare

As you can see the blue and green curve is still the same. The only difference is a drop in comparison to theĀ pink curve (saved measurement from above).

I did not change any volumes, trims or gains while running the measurement.

This shows us that the only difference between a linked and unlinked channelĀ is a volume drop.

New rendering engine
12. Mrz 2014
Mixing Station

Hi,

I’m currently working on a new rendering engine for mixing station.

After doing some tests I noticed a huge performance boost for the drawing. The faders are moving much smoother.

Also it’s possible to create much more complex layouts than before cause I’m skipping the default android layout system.

I also gave the main page a new look to match the pc version. When everything is working fine with the new render I will slowly replace most of the other views with it.

New version at the end of the week
4. Mrz 2014
Mixing Station

It’s been quite a while since the last update but I’m happy to announce that I’m nearly finished with rewriting the app. It also already contains some new features and a lot of bug fixes.

It’s now even possible to restrict the access to some functions. This will help customize the app for fixed instalations.

Also the layer logic is completely new:

It’s possible to add, rename, reorder and remove any layer. When you save a layer the complete collection will be saved in one file. Also all layer remain visible in sends on fader mode. Only the channels that are not usable for the particular mix will be invisible.

I also changed the style of the meter bars cause they are more accurate and I want to include a peak hold function later.

The peq knobs in the channel overview are now removed. In the final version they will be replaced with a small peq graph.

One disadvantage of the new version is a higher memory consumption. But it should still work on devices with less ram.

 

So that’s it for now.

Hope you will like the new version

Cue / Show management and more awesome stuff
13. Feb 2014
Mixing Station

Hi,

First of allĀ I’m on vacation from 15.02 till 22.02 so I will not be able to answer emails!

I’m currently working on all the cue / scene features. It shouldn’t take that long anymore until the first release for the beta testers will be finished.

Mixing Stations is now also available on Amazon AppstoreĀ BUT it will take much longer for all the kindle users out there to get the updates.

That’s because of amazons stupid validation system. They are manualy checking each app for functionality before releasing to the public. So when I upload a critical update it may take 1-5 days until kindle users will get the new version.

Also someone came up with a quite awesome idea: Internal dca groups. These will work just as regular dca groups but more flexible than the default one on the X32. So you will be able to group let’s say all the drum channels for a monitor mix and change them with one fader.

I thought about extending this functionality to assign any channel to these dca groups and make all the layers customizeable. So in the end you will be able to create / remove and edit all layers Ā and add custom dca groups to them (or any other channel of course).

But this might take a while cause this will require quite a lot of changes in the code.
