Q

I just tested sound caster on an x32 but found that I was getting a bit of static in my ears. Could that have anything to do with the software?

Any sound quality issues are, typically, related to the Wi-Fi router.
Send me a note at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com and let me know what brand and model of router you are using and which iPhone or iPad you are using to run Performer.
We thank you for your purchase and we are here to make sure everything is sounding great.
Thanks,
Brandon

Q

on an x-32, can you run usb from a hub that also runs to a second computer recording multitracks


Audiofusion responded on 08/15/2018
A

Well I'm happy to report that the Behringer will allow us to record audio coming out of the USB while SoundCaster uses the same audio to broadcast to Performers for their mix. In fact, I was able to send tracks and click out of Ableton where it mixed with live instruments and came back into the Mac where Ableton could record it and SoundCaster could broadcast it. I had tracks, in-ear monitors, and recording to a DAW all coming in and out the same USB. You can still send me an email at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com if you want to connect directly.

Thanks,
Brandon

Q

How does the sound quality and overall volume headroom compare to a PSM300 or a hardwired solution to a good headphone amp?


Audiofusion responded on 08/14/2018
A

iPhones have been built from the beginning to deliver great audio so the frequency range and sound quality is superior. Our system, however, is passing through the audio coming from the console. We do not (yet) have any processing such as EQ or FX built into SoundCaster. We can boost the volume of the channels coming in but the EQ and gain structure of the console is the main thing limiting volume. The iPhones and iPads are capable of blasting your ears if you're not careful. Be sure to send me that email so I can reply to you directly tomorrow.

Q

Going from an AH GLD112 through Dante card. Do I need to convert the signal from Ethernet to USB or will it work going straight Ethernet into the iMac?


Audiofusion responded on 08/14/2018
A

Dante is a beautiful thing. In order to be successful you will need two pieces of software running on the Mac:
1. You need the Dante Controller (free) to do your routing which will determine which channels are coming into the Mac.
2. You need the Dante Virtual Sound Card ($29 download). With the Virtual Sound Card running, it will show up as one of the devices you can select in the Input Devices drop down menu on Sound Caster.
You should connect your console by ethernet to the Wi-Fi router you intend to use with Audiofusion. Connect the MAc to the same Wi-Fi router by ethernet and everything will just find each other. No need to convert from ethernet to USB. Feel free to email me directly at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com if you have any other questions as you get set up. Thanks, Brandon

Q

PreSonus 24.4.2 -> firewire to iMac -> iMac to Router.... We run ProPresenter & Qmix off the same iMac. Will your app interfere with that or do you recommend a separate designated computer?

Hi Jeremy,
We run SoundCaster with Ableton all the time.
I know some of our users run it on the same mac with ProPresenter but I haven't done it myself.
We have not tried it with ProPresenter and Q-mix. SoundCaster does take up a significant % of CPU so you'll have to try it on your iMac to see if you have any resource constraints. It might depend on how taxing your ProPresenter presentations are (lots of video and cues vs. still images and lyrics).
Send me an email at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com if you need any help getting set up.
Thanks,
Brandon

Q

Hi, are there any latency data available? using USB there should be at least a ms added, using Dante DVS there should be a couple as well, and then Wi-fi.. This sounds really good, but for someone who got burned a couple of time on monitorsystems it's easy to be a sceptic.


Audiofusion responded on 08/10/2018
A

Hi, as you indicated in your question, there are a number of aspects which will affect the overall latency of the system. While some musicians may find the latency perceptible nearly all find it quite usable for live performance. We've been using it every Sunday for the past two years. Your question arrived anonymous. Feel free to send me an email at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com if you would like further details. -Brandon

Q

Hi, I'm really interested in trying soundcaster. We play music with backing track and click running logic. I'm not sure if Audiofusion fits in our setup.
I would like to test it before buy it. Is there a trial version?
Thank you in advance


Audiofusion responded on 08/09/2018
A

Now that we have finally released the 1.0 Version, the beta testing has ended. Performer (the musician's app) will continue to be a free download. The initial $99 download of SoundCaster will allow you to connect one Performer at a time. That should allow you to test the system with your set up and determine if you would like to add additional connections for $99 each. Send me an email at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com and let me know what kind of digital mixer or audio interface you are using. I will give you my personal money back guarantee. We will refund the $99 download price in the first 30 days if you are not satisfied with the system. -Brandon

Q

Can you use an iPod Touch for the performed?


Audiofusion responded on 08/03/2018
A

Yes. iPod Touch does work nicely but the battery life is not as good as a used iPhone for the same money.

Q

How do setup Soundcaster and get audio from a Behringer X32?


Audiofusion responded on 08/03/2018
A

To run with the X32 simply connect the console to the Mac by USB. SoundCaster will automatically detect all 32 channels. Choose 16 channels or less to include in the mix. Connect the Mac by ethernet to the WiFi router.
