M32-Q for MIDAS M32 Digital Mixing Console
M32-Q adds full iPhone or iPod Touch personal monitor mixing capabilities to the M32 Digital Mixer. With M32-Q musicians can control their own stereo monitor mix with full access to all 32 input channels individually or through the M32's MCA (Mix Control Association) faders. Each band member can group inputs to four MCAs allowing for one-fader control over a group of channels, greatly simplifying the mix during performance.
Setup is simple – just connect your iPhone or iPod Touch to the same wireless network as the M32; no additional hardware, no computer and no hassles. And, with no specific limit on the number of users, M32-Q will allow everyone in the band to take control of their own mix.
* Select the Mix Bus for your Personal Stereo Monitoring Control from iPhone/iPod Touch
* Assign any combination of inputs to four available MCA (mix control association) Faders
* MCA's allow concurrent trimming of all assigned signals with just one fader:
--more me--less band--more click track--less percussion ...the choice is yours!
* Control all Channel Send Levels for Inputs 1 – 32
* Control all Auxiliary Input 1 – 8 and 4 Stereo Effects Return Sends to Bus Mixes
* Meter all Input Channel levels for visual feedback
* Connect multiple iPhone/iPod Touch units simultaneously
Requires a wireless router connected to the M32 Digital Mixer.
Ratings and Reviews
Currently using M32-Q because x32-Q is Mo longer supported. It does what it needs to but x32 was so much better. X32 was cleaner, faster, easier to make setting and it seemed to just function better. I’m so sad that they aren’t updating the other app because this one works but it frustrates me so much with extra steps and how slow it can be.
Using for x32
While I’m frustrated at the lack of support for the x32 app and no updates to that app... I can’t complain that much. This app works great! It does everything we need it to do. Saves us so much time and hassle with our in ear mixes. The only issue I’m having is using the app on older iPads. The group selection doesn’t show up on the left side. Not a big deal because most of the team and I use phones anyway.
I’m worried that at some point this app won’t work anymore either. But until then I give 5 stars.
Why not DCA’s?
For the bus feeds, this app is fantastic. Although it’s a little jolty when rotating the screen to adjust between the master bus fader and the faders within the bus, it does what you need it to and doesn’t have connectivity issues.
However, I do wish that we could at least have DCA control, as this would then grant some degree of mixing capability from our phones with, what I feel, would be minimal adjustment to the app itself. If the app were to have that, it would be a 5 star must have.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
