Ratings and Reviews
Would be nice if we could choose the inputs we want to monitor
Nice app...but I am frustrated that if I want to select a specific input to monitor, I can’t do that in this app. I have to do that on the Mac app.
If you could give us the ability to select inputs from within the iOS/iPadOS app...or even load snapshots or presets...this could be a 5 star app.
Unfortunately, the app will rarely connect with the Mac version to control the Scarlett 6i6 on the iPhone or iPad; and when it does, lists ghost versions of my Interface on the iPad, one showing up even when the device is powered down, but not actually showing any activity or having any control over it, this selection cannot be deleted, even if the app is deleted and re-installed; the other showing up when the device is powered up, working correctly, but with the exact same name as the non-functional selection. Grrrrrr. It has worked, a couple of times, showing its potential.
Focusrite Control for Mac should be added to the App Store, as this software pairing is in obvious need for persistent, focused, and automatic updating.

No Support for iPad? Seriously???
I have never written a review for any app, good or bad. But imagine my bitter surprise when I figured out that Focusrite Control on an iPad can’t control a Scarlett 8i6 plugged into that iPad!!! Seriously? To do a simple thing like turn off direct monitoring, I had to plug the Scarlett into the MacBook (which also makes me wonder what the Monitor volume knob on the Scarlett is for). Why on earth an existing iOS app CAN’T control a Scarlett plugged into the iPad, when the MacOS version of Control CAN control a Scarlett plugged into the MacBook is just sheer laziness on the part of Focusrite. I see it so often: Inde devs perform miraculous updates to their apps on a regular basis, while corporate devs release half-baked apps and never fix their most glaring obvious flaws. So disappointed.
