Forever frustrating

When it works, it’s pretty awesome. But I’ve had this thing for about three years and every time I use it it’s like starting over. If the app has things set up, the speaker is useless without the app. The analog controls shut down and the speaker is useless. Then just when I think I have it figured out, the app, even when connected via Bluetooth, only opens in demo mode. I just forgot device, deleted and reinstalled, so I’m about to see if it’s gonna behave. Too bad since the speaker is good quality. I will be using it at a brewery show this weekend so wish me luck. (I shouldn’t have to say that for as much as I paid.)

Great idea, when it works

This works great sometimes.... Any time I connect and don't touch the app for a minute it stops controlling the levels when I make a change to a faded and it still says it's connected via Bluetooth. For the most part I'm using this for practice, I couldn't imagine fighting with this live in front of people. I have to disconnect he Bluetooth or force the program to restart just to gain control of the faders again.

Terrible App

This agonizingly terrible app has forced me to return the Mackie Freeplay I just purchased. The same issue that has plagued many users is still present. The mixer unlinks with the Freeplay after only a few minutes. It then fails to reconnect non matter how many times you try. The only thing that works is when the unit is turned off and on. How incredibly frustrating!!! I also see that the fine folks at Loud Technologies have not updated this useless bit of software since 2015! Sorry Mackie, but you have dropped the ball and lost another purchase and the faith of a potential repeat customer.
