  • it really is annoying that you dont still support this app.
  • I agree with @wul.  Why is there no support for iConfig on iOS, especially since there is no other option for controlling on an iPad?

    9 times out of 10, iConfig on iOS doesn't recognize my ICA4+, even though it is powering my iPad and connecting to audio and midi just fine.  And if I do get it to recognize the device, it can lose connection at any time even though the interface continues to work.  I just need to get to basic settings and I'm shut out without hooking up a laptop to do so.

    Any hope for an Auracle on iOS?  Something is needed.
  • This is a legit question. I'll give you the straight answer on this. 
    iConfig was created by a previous developer many years ago and it was able to stay working on iOS for a while but when Apple switched to 64 bit only it caused problems for the iConfig, iConfig for AUDIO apps.
    At this point we started on new software and didn't have the developer for the previous iConfig software. We pulled iConfig and iConfig for AUDIO from the appstore and made the software open source online, in case someone wanted to take on that challenge.
    We had a lot of reports from users being upset that it was pulled because some had it working still. We put it back up in the store just for those who could get it working. Honestly I've never had it working since that change over.
    We are talking about when we can get Auracle X (currently only on desktop) to iOS. 
    This new software is built much better and will be easier to port than iConfig was.
    Sorry for that inconvenience.
  • Thanks for the straight answer. We look forward to anything you could do.
    Even a scaled back version of Auracle would be helpful for a start.
  • One last thought on something that could be a bandaid until you can get a full-blown version of iOS Auracle together.  Even if there was a way to put a simple app together that allowed users to select presets on the ICA, it would at least allow us to pull up different mixer and midi settings that we defined on our PCs. 

    I definitely want the full Auracle on iOS, but my biggest issue is simply not being able to change settings for different recording and live applications within iOS without being connected to a PC.  

    Just an idea toward getting to some sort of workable solution in a shorter timeframe.

    Just realized Auracle only allows for a single preset on an ICA4+, so my above idea wouldn't work on it. 
    Any possibility of adding basic MIDI control to the mixer settings on your Audio interfaces? That would give us a way to use a 3rd party MIDI UI app on iOS, or an external control surface to at least control the mixer settings without the need for a dedicated iOS app.  It seems like this would be a nice feature for PC/Mac users, as well.  Win/Win without developing specifically for iOS.
  • MIDI control is something I've been throwing in our developers minds since the start of Auracle X. It is in the roadmap and I will continue to keep it in the priority list. This is a common request and one I would personally love.
    There are a few more things ahead of it, that need to be addressed in Auracle X first but MIDI control is definitely in the list. We've spoken a bit about it this past week in more detail.
  • Cool. Just remember that it would go a long way toward giving iOS users a level of control that they don't currently have now.  Plenty of iOS apps out there that would allow us to make a virtual mixer control, or connect up a Korg NanoKontrol/Studio for actual fader control of ICA mixer I/O.
  • I can officially say that MIDI control/learning is in a list of added for Auracle X now.
    It's made it's way to top 5 big adds.

    I'll second that 'Thanks' for a straight answer.  I thought from the beginning that iConnect was not the best implementation of a GUI for a hardware DIN/USB MIDI device.  (I came from the MOTU/Opcode world of MIDI v1.0 still using those old ADB cables) I remember spending hours trying to wrap my head around the mapping of DIN i/o to USB virtual ports and bugging Nick for confirmation whether I was 'doing it right' or not.  Now we learn it was a rather 'proprietary' attempt by a single dev...
  • If anyone has recommendations of things that could be changed in our newer Auracle X software that would help you understand the routings and GUI better, please give me ALL the ideas. They may not come to light BUT a piece of the idea might make things better even. We listen to feedback very closely. We look at our overall user base and try and do what's best based on that. We interfaces that have so much, in terms of options, we do have to do things in a unique way sometimes.
    We love the iOS community and wished Apple put as much work on the audio and MIDI side there as they do on their computers. Maybe one day they will. You know the story from the info I've posted above. 
    Again let me know if you have any ideas. 
    Note: at some point we may look for BETA tester on iOS. When we do I'll post looking for people in the forum here. We currently have some BETA testing for unreleased features for mio X series interfaces and starting a testing group for Auracle X on Windows. We are testing on our side but Windows machines run across a large library of hardware and software combinations and the more we can test the better we can catch any issue before they happen.
