    I wonder if its possible to set up a time schedule for scenes or snippets on a x32 rack. My customer wants the audio to change automatically on a specific time. Anyway to do this directly via x32 or is there any 3rd party that will work with for example midi?

      Hello @ando , welcome to the community.


       


      The X32 does not have any timer functions for changing scenes/snippets. You could do it with Midi messages through the DIN Midi input or with OSC commands over the network. You would need a time-scheduled task to run a program or script on a PC. e.g. On a Windows PC, you could use the Task Scheduler to run a scipt with Midi-Ox to send Midi messages.

    Hello I have a Midas M32, and am having trouble with operations.

    1. Main Feed to far right on the console:    We have set up 12 inputs ( 10 mics and 2 music feeds)) and 6 outputs (bussed properly) to 6 sets of speakers.   All is well with the throughput however, the MAIN slider to the far right is a problem.  It seems that it overrides the bussing of the inputs to outputs.  ie    If we turn of the sliders on all 6 output channels, the main overrides them.   Is this proper?  Also,  the main seems to be necessary to bring all 6 output channels to play sound equally.  In other words without it being up some of the outputs do not produce enough sound.  

    2.Effects:  We were able to set up a vintage reverb through #13 for each mic,  but we cannot seem to make 14, 15, nor 16 produce and effected sound.

    Note:  We purchased the course video, but it seems to leave out key details. If we watch which buttons are pushed on Davidn's console we can see he is adjusting things but not mentioning them. We have been through the video several times with no success.

      Hi Denis @AG137 ,


      Welcome to the forum.


       


      For your first issue, the channel sends to the 6 bus pairs are probably post fader (to the channel faders). Change the sends taps to pre-fader, post-EQ etc. 


       


      For your second issue, check that the FX2L to FX4R Main LR are enabled. 


       


      If you are unsure what I'm talking about, export your scene to a file (using the Utility button on the console or Export feature in M32-Edit) and attach it to your next post (Choose file below). That way we can have a look at your setup and better advise.

      That depends where, in the world, you are. Amazon and Ebay are good sources. Make sure you use the right fuse for your mains voltage:

      For 200-240V supply voltage, the correct fuse would be this one. 


      For 100-120V supply voltage, the correct fuse would be this one.

    Hi guys, i know this is probably a basic question and very easy to answer,but i'd just like some assistance if you guys dont mind.

    I currently have a Behringer x1204FX, Two top speakers(Inputs are RCA) and Behringer VQ1500D(1 Sub)

    I know i can connect the L and R tops via the Main outputs on the rear of the mixer,but for the subwoofer would i want to use the ALT 3-4 outputs so i can individually control the volume of the sub and tops, or would there be a better way to wire this up

      @Mr_Jordan 


      Hello Jordan, welcome to the community.


       


      The problem with using the Alt 3-4 buses is that you would need to route specific channels to them and they would be removed from the Main mix. You could play tricks by connecting the 2-Track output to a spare stereo channel and routing that to Alt 3-4 but it's messy.


       


      I would connect the Main outputs to the sub's inputs and connect the sub's high-pass outputs to the top speakers. This should give the most benefit from the sub.

    We just received some new piano mics at my church. We were recommended the Audio-Technica ATM450 Small-diaphragm Condenser Microphones by one of our sound technicians at church. He visited a church with what he thought was the same piano as ours and the same sound system. Turns out that the piano we have is more shallow than the piano that was at the other church so we are not able to mount the mics the same way as the other church. We have a Kawai RX-2 Millennium Limited Edition grand piano and two of the Audio-Technica ATM450 Small-diaphragm Condenser Microphones. We are wanting to be able to close our piano, if at all possible. Because of how shallow the piano is we might not be able to close is completely but the more we can close it the better. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to mic it?

      Hi Dawson @DJBall330 ,


      What we did at our church (about 10 years ago) was mount a boundary mic (like the Audio-Technica U851) to the lid of the piano. With the lid down, it picks up well. With the lid up, it also picks up the surroundings. Fortunately the one pianist that insisted in lifting the lid is no longer playing there.

    Can anyone suggest Voicelive 2 settings for early Beatles 2- and 3-part harmonies? Thanks!

      Hey @MaxBP !


      We have so many presets for our vocal processors that I can't really pull one out that specifically sounds like the Beatles. For the VoiceLive 2, we do have a preset list you can check out. The list calls out a few tags regarding styles, such as harmony above & below, doubling, big vocals, etc. This should help you pinpoint some settings that you need in your sound. You can usually tell what sound we were attempting to go for by the title, too. For example, check out "I Am A Walrus". 


      A great place to find even more presets is VoiceSupport 2. This is our free application for device updates and preset management. You can find more presets in our Preset Cloud.


      You can download the VoiceLive 2 Preset List as well as VoiceSupport 2 from the TC Helicon website on the device's Downloads page. Here's a link: https://www.tc-helicon.com/Categories/Tchelicon/Vocal/Multi-Effects/VOICELIVE-2/p/P0CMC/Downloads


      Hope this helps!

    Salutations.  

    I have searched for extended time for detailed information on the exact structure of the DCA function on the x32.  I apologize it this has already been addressed, but I could not find it.

    First question:  Does the DCA control the HeadAmp on the channel or does it control the Fader?  Another was of asking: when the DCA fader is decreased, is there a related decrease in gain to all signal paths originating in that channel?  (e.g. are pre-fader monitor bus sends decreased as well as post-fader group buses with downstream paths such as mains and matrix?)  

    Second question:  what is the range of effect of the DCA on the headamp (assuming it is the headamp)?  For example. is when the DCA fader is at unity, I assume the DCA is having no effect on the channel.  But if the DCA fader is pushed to max is it possible to overdrive the channel headamp or downstream buses?  Or is DCA max where the DCA has no effect and all control is only to decrease gain?

    Third question:  can the DCA also control buses and what are the pitfalls?

    I am grateful for your assistance.

      No, DCA's control the channel strip faders only and has no effect on the gains, etc.

      Hello @jjz , welcome to the community.


       


      DCAs do not affect headamp gains. They operate at the point of a channel or bus fader. So they are effectively an additional post-fader control. When a DCA is set to 0dB, the post-fader signal from the channel or bus is unchanged. DCAs can add up to 10dB post-fader gain or attenuation down to infinity.

      Thank you @RexBeckett and @Paul_Vannatto ,


      So one must be careful to not introduce excessive gain by pushing a DCA too high when you may have already pushed an individual channel up (as for pushing a solo over the mix). I think I have seen this with overdriven busses after carefully building a gain structure.  


      Thank you again.

      I think you have misunderstood our explanation. DCA's have no effect on input gains - none whatsoever. Also if you have channel sends to busses tapped pre fader (not post fader or subgroup), the DCA's will have no effect on those sends - none. DCA's are only remote-control-like controls of the channel faders.

      @Paul_Vannatto 


      Thank you for taking time to make sure I understood.  I did.  If one is pushing a headamp at -12 and then pushing channel fader at +10, then adding another +10 from the DCA function then the resulting software representation of the gain is very high (depending of course on how they are doing the math etc - it is software at this point and not actual electrical gain.


      This will result in the buss meters showing clipping, I've done it.  I see that @RexBeckett has pointed that out. 


      So when the digital "gain" gets to an output device, a d2a converter or a DAW, the resulting gain feeding that device is capable of being overdriven.  


      What I don't know is how the x32 reacts when a digital gain is excessive, such as when too many hot channels are feeding a buss, which is then sent to the mains.  Does the x32 limit it?  Or will audible clipping (digital or analog) occur?


      thank you again for your patience and sharing your knowledge.

    Hi Experts, I am trying to have an effect on an Aux Bus but no on the Main LR. I must be doing/undertanding something wrong, because unless I rise the Return fader in the Main LR mix, the effect will not work on the Aux Bus. In other words, the Return fader has te be up in both the Main LR and the Aux Bus mixers for the effect to work on the Aux Bus. Lowering the Return on the Main LF affects both outputs, lowering the Aux Bus return fader has no effect on the Main LR effect output.

    Just can't figure it out! Any help would be most welcomed.
    Thanks in advance

      Thanks Gary! That indeed avoids the effect being sent to the Main LR while still working on the Aux1, which was what I was after. However, I am sitll puzzled by the fact that the effect level on the Aux 1 depends on both Fx faders (the ones on Bus1 and Main LR mixers); both need to be up.


      Is that how it is supposed to work?


      Thanks!

      Try making that particular fx bus be pre fader for all your ch's. I have not tried this but it could be the fx send from ch's is taped post master fx fader. Sort of makes sense, worth a try.

    I'm new to the XR18.  I'm using the X-Air iPad app to control the mixer for live sound.  I can't figure out how to place the effects into the monitor mix (aux outs) as well as the mains.   I can get them through the mains - just not the monitors.

      Push the button for the Aux bus you want to add FX to (below the big Main LR button on the lower right).


      Then push up the fader for the FX you want in that bus. Push Main LR to return to normal mixing.

    I wonder if someone can help me I've been trying to find an answer for quite some time. Can I go out of the XR 18 Ultranet directly into the P 16 personal monitor mixer without having a distribution through P16-I. I really just want to be able to create mixers by daisychaining P16's with their own power supplies. The manual shows a dotted line going directly to the P 16 and I'm wondering if that means it will work.
