So I’ve just ordered an X1800 and I’m excited to start performing with it - just the mixer and one Traktor D2. I like that there’s two discrete USB soundcards, this will definitely come in handy for playing tracks off my iPad using a DJ app while I’m still setting up my main rig. However, one of the other neat things you can do with an iPad these days is Effects routing.
I’m not a huge fan of Pioneer’s RMX-1000 app but I do really like another app called LiveFX, the question is now when my unit arrives will I be able to somehow route the main effects send / return into the iPad like a soundcard? I’ve read elsewhere on the forum that this can be done for RCA Line / phono inputs using the DVS switch, but almost everything I’d be doing would be through Traktor as a soundcard so that might not work for me.
Either way, given the fact that most of the inputs / outputs on the unit are supposed to just be portals into the digital realm this very well may be possible via a Firmware update if it isn’t now. It would definitely make the unit ultra competitive against Pioneer’s mixer with its dedicated iPad USB port!
