New bug tracking system
15. Jan 2015
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.

New Gate / Dynamic Views

Mixing Station

I added some fancy features to the gate and dynamic views:

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 change 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  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 the 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 channel 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 all 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 Appstore 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  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.

Firmware 2.0, X18 and Midas M32
24. Jan 2014
Mixing Station

Hi,

I just saw the new features in 2.0 and I’m blown away! Also the X18 sounds very promissing for small / simple things.

Anyway I will start development for 2.0 today! Also Mixing Station should work with the Midas M32 if they are using the same protocol (what I expect cause the firmware looks the same).

When I’m finished with the 2.0 update I will start developing a app for the X18 (I read somewhere that Behringer also want to release an android version like they said last 2 years, is that correct?)

Effects and more
6. Jan 2014
Mixing Station

I just finished the next beta version.
You can now change every effect parameter of every effect. I’m currently using a generic user interface for all effects to save some time while developing.
Also I fixed some bugs/crashes with the layer save/load function.
And last but not least I fixed some graphic bugs that appear at a certain resolution.

The version will be uploaded in 1-2 days for all beta tester.

Short downtime

Misc

I’m currently changing some server backend stuff so there might be a short downtime the next few hours.
Just in case you were wondering :-)
