So, it's NOT a bug?

I posted that because of the irony. Several people reported the issue and Paul's response was basically "we tested this thoroughly, you must have screwed up by not loading factory defaults, etc". Given that there have been at least two broken firmware updates before this, I found the statement "interesting"

Am not sure how you can spin "files lost/corrupted, preamps going noisy, etc" as being "not a bug"

Recordings not auto-splitting correctly at 4GB is definitely a bug which we will address as top priority.
Until we release a fix, please revert to v2.21 if you use 4GB auto-splitting.

Apologies for causing any inconvenience.

Paul, SD

Any signs of ever getting level adjustment feature from the Wingman App?

The little Roland R-07 does it. The new Sony offering to replace the M-10 offers it. Seems that it wouldn't be too hard for Sound Devices to build this capability into a firmware update.

Currently the Wingman app is just a pretty meter for monitoring levels and a neat way to name the channels so I don't forget which mic went to which. Beyond that it's not very useful.

Wingman could stop your recording by accident if you fat-finger the control. One extra point of failure. No thanks for now.

I get not wanting to use it. I do use it. I find it very useful to zip up my bag and press record from the app. I'd also love to be able to adjust levels with it, more features on the app wouldn't preclude your continuing decision not to use it...

that's why they need to add a hold button in the firmware as well, preferably controlled from wingman also. you open up wingman, start the recording, adjust the levels, press hold, and your recording is now set for the rest of the night without needing to touch the mixpre at all. you can then undo the hold and stop it at the end of the show from wingman as well. i really have no idea what they were doing working on this wingman update the last 6 months (between wingman versions 3.1 and 3.2), as it's largely the same app as before aside from support for the M models.

I have 2 of these things. :smash: Still don't trust it for mission-critical work.

I still rock the 722 and the 744t. Those things are ROCK-STARS!

The Start/Stop function is pretty useful. It saved me once - I was having trouble getting through the thick of the crowd to get back to my gear and was able to start the recording from about 40' away just before the first notes of Second Set!
That being said, it screwed me once too because I accidentally pressed stop during a recording  :facepalm: that was my first time using it. I haven't made that mistake since (I just screen lock my phone to prevent that) but a lock feature through the app (and at the deck) would be awesome.
