    I have recently purchased UMC-404HD to connect an external microphone for Teams and Zooms calls but I am having issues on how to route the audio output to hear the call via headphones ; I have not tried to connect speakers to the Audio interface. Any suggestions ?

      RexBeckett Hi joeyskye, try this:

      Select the UMC404HD USB Returns 1/2 (aka USB Audio Codec) as playback output for Zoom. This can be done with the Zoom app or by making it the default playback device in Windows Sound settings.

      On the UMC404HD, have the Monitor A/B button out. Turn the Phones level up.
      Use the Mix control to set the mix of live input to USB playback. Clockwise increases the level of USB playback.

        joeyskye Thanks Rex I work with a Mac and PC as well as NDI audio so the routing can get complicated ; however your instructions have been spot on for the UMC404HD which the manual has not documented which would require another two page of illustrations ... Thanks for your help.

        joeyskye I would be happy if anybody in the group has used Zoom and/or Teams with NDI setup using their UMC-404HD ?

    Hi,

    I wish to know if UMC22 can output stereo using the usb port!

    knowing that the input is XLR coming from stereo (2 XLR) from a mixer.

      RexBeckett Hi rafiqamir, the UMC22 is not ideal for this application. The two inputs have different characteristics which could affect the stereo image. I would recommend using the UMC202HD instead as the two inputs have the same properties.

    I currently use the  x32mix app on my old iPad.  My new iPad says its an outdated app. What app is the best to use all the ones I find are crazy to use

      RexBeckett IMO the best app for both iOS and Android is Mixing Station XM32. It is very well supported with frequent updates including user-requested features. The UI can be customized to suit individual applications. It is well worth the modest cost.

    We receive audio via CAT5 and have an XLR as a backup, but during a session, as we were live streaming and the x32 itself glitched out and we lost all signal. We restarted the board but nothing happened. Then we restarted it again then the signal came back. What could have caused this board glitch?

      RexBeckett Hi John, Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) can cause symptoms like this. It is important that connections between X32 consoles and stageboxes are made using shielded Ethernet cables with etherCon shells bonded to the shields. Without solid continuity between the etherCon shells, ESD can cause drop-outs and lock-ups.

      People also get caught-out if the X32's Safe Main Levels option is turned on. This will pull the main faders down on a restart and possibly on a short power glitch.

    Hey fam,

    I attempted and successfully replaced the battery on my System 6000 MK1/Black. I actually installed an "Upright 3-Tab" CR2032 battery holder that I can pop a new battery in and out of! It worked great and I was able to get my licenses back within an hour of the new battery and holder install and I ws back up and running. I attached a photo of the holder. I actually purchased them on Amazon. I had to purchase a dozen but were less than $7 US. 

     

    DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS IF YOU ARE NOT GOOD AT USING A SOLDERING IRON AND REMOVING SOLDER FROM A CIRUCUIT BOARD!

      Nigel67 Many thanks for sharing. I have never seen a vertical holder like that before. That will come in useful for some old Klark Teknik products.

    I am newbie to this mixer.  I cannot find a channel mute button... trying to move a mic during live church service and would like to mute the channel while still live...surely I am missing something simple.

      RexBeckett Hi Pooch, you are not missing anything. The RX1202FX does not have channel mute buttons. You can prevent pops on the main outputs when moving a mic by pulling the channel fader down. You cannot prevent noise on the monitor mix though.

      It would be better to use two mics rather than moving a single one. If that is not possible, use a mic mute switch. e.g. https://www.dv247.com/en_GB/GBP/Rolls-MM11-Pro-MicMute-MicTalk-Switch/art-REC0012114-000?soluteclid=1&gclid=Cj0KCQiA34OBBhCcARIsAG32uvP52FcitHZ9t2SBcMznBV5ZfYWxQKArhx-ANQiuENEoBdl2oOXrl-YaAt7pEALw_wcB

      Pooch RexBeckett. thank you so much. Previous mixers I have been exposed to (church system) have had that mute button. It appears we are needing to continue to upgrade our equipment (both of our our mics have on off button that dont work!!!). . Thank you so much for your quick response. Very polite...Pooch

        RexBeckett Sound Engineers sometimes bypass mic on/off switches intentionally. Many of us have had bad experiences when the talent turned a mic off accidentally and ignored the frantic hand-signals!

        Pooch I have minimal experience in years past, now trying to use mix of some new equipment with older mics in church. Not my background but learning again quickly. Learning to stream and record. Pretty simple set up with 4 mics, PTZ camera, Roland switch board, couple of computers etc. The sound portion of course has been the hardest to learn. Good to know people are here to help. We can definitely grow into our equipment. Thanks again RexBeckett

    Pretty simple question. 

    We're trying to set up an audio network to do live stream mixing via Logic, using DL32 preamps and the WING mixer to send the sources. 

    Since the Dante card is not yet available for the WING, nor is Dante compatible with the M1 Macs, is there a way to send channels out from the WING via an AVB Network?

     

    Thanks,

      DavidKnighton Hello tubijack,
      The Wing Dante cards are available now as of a few weeks ago, but alas, that does no good if M1 macs do not support Dante Virtual Soundcard. At the moment, Wing does not support any other format/protocol other than AES50 and USB. Might I suggest a Klark Teknik DN9630. With this, you can send an adjacent AES50 line from the console to your computer station. The 9630 will convert AES50 to USB so that you can interface with the computer. Note: there has been some issue with M1 and Big Sur in regards to USB devices, so I do not know if the 9630 is compatible at this time. I would strongly suggest an earlier machine running an earlier OS if you are having interconnection problems with M1.

    Hi folks,

    I have an XAir18 which I've been using with the Android app prior to lock-down for almost couple of years in a very simple way, mixing at a venue. Have downloaded the PC Edit software and just now I'm looking a experimenting with a new use case i.e. remote mixing for a livestream.

    So my thought is as follows:

    • The "studio" (i.e. friend's house) is connected to the mixing booth (i.e. my house) via a VPN over fibre connections.
    • The XAir18 is in the studio.
    • The PC is in the mixing booth.

    Is it possible to get any audio out of PC Edit for monitoring in the mixing booth?
    Is it possible to have a talk-back mic going into PCEdit to feed into the IEMs in the studio?

    If it is possible I'm happy to do the leg-work and work it out, but don't really want to spend hours on it if someone knows it's not possible this way. However, having looked at another post on here I think it may not be...

    If it isn't possible using Edit, do you have any ideas for how it might be possible?

    Cheers,
    Chris.

      RexBeckett Hi Chris, there is no audio present on the network connection between the mixer and control PC so monitoring and talkback are not possible. You may be able to use some Dante devices to establish a two-way audio-over-IP connection - in parallel to the control network. e.g. Dante AVIO Adapters: https://www.audinate.com/products/devices/dante-avio

      You could also use a Zoom meeting but the latency may be too high to be practicable.

        ChristopherG Hi Rex, thanks for the info and your thoughts. Will certainly check out the Dante link and investigate the Zoom possibilities.
