So i was thinking about getting an xr18 and then i realized something kind of ridiculous in my opinion. What i would use the xr18 for is to put on a stage and use it as a drop. Then run everything wireless from a remote location. Great, i can do that. BUT if i want to record the band then what??? When i use my rack i just insert the usb flash drive and hit record. But this is not how the xr18 works. It is a computer interface. So now i have to have my computer connected to it and what???...leave it on stage running the whole time? Ridiculous. Why did they omit the basic and very useful 2 track recording on the xr18. The xr16 and the xr12 have it.
i hope they are working on a direct to drive option that can be controlled by the app. This is a fail for anyone who wants to remotely use the xr18 and record.
