Finally got to play with a DL 1608 today. It wasnt really something i'm looking at buying, but i absolutely love the price point and the small size. I am hoping to go digital at some stage. Had a few questions though.
It felt a bit, shall i say, toyish? Obviously its not a very old product but does anyone have any experience of how reliable and how the sound is?
I notice that it only works up to an ipad 3? It doesnt work with either the mini or the ipad 4? Are there any plans to upgrade this? Doesnt seem like it will have a very long shelf life? I know you can still buy an ipad 2, but this seems very disappointing (i know this is apples fault, not Mackies... but still).
Is anyone using these on real world gigs? It seems that it would cost me about $1300 for the board and then i'd need a $500 (au prices) ipad which is a fair bit cheaper than the SL 16.4.2 and probably half the size?
