      Hi John, welcome to the community.


       


      See here for the user manual for the XAir mixers. Note that some of the screenshots do not match the lastest versions of the apps but most of the information still applies.

      @carrjimi Audio connections are over USB. Control of the mixer is by network (ethernet/WiFi). What are you having trouble with?


      To trouble shoot USB (audio), try this: While the XR18 is connected to your mac, hold the "option" key while opening the Apple menu (). Select "System Information...". Look under Hardware—USB. There should be a X-USB entry. If there isn't, then it's a hardware problem. If it is, It's software. There is no driver to install as the XR18 is class compliant.

      I'm trying to use my macbook to control the xr16 for live shows.  I have it working with the built in wifi but havnt been able to directly connect my mac via ethernet cable to the xr16.

      It depends on what control you want done by the other device. The midi settings on the X32 is found in the Setup, Remote screen or Setup, Midi Control in X32-Edit. Midi implementation on the X32 only provides basic control (channel faders, mutes, as well as cues, scenes and snippet loading). If you want full control, you will have to use the OSC protocol (X32's mother tongue).


      Not familiar with "show cus system". Are you meaning Show Cue System?

      Hi Paul,


      I meant for show cue system.


      i am just want the basics controls like channel fader, mute , cues, scenes and snippet.


      I want to know the settings for the x32 to allow the midi control commands from the show cue system.


      i am all ready use osc protocol but i want to know who to setup to midi as well.


      thank you

      Are you asking for the X32 settings, or are you asking for the midi command set? As I mentioned before the X32 midi settings are set on the Setup, Remote (on X32 console) or Setup, Midi Contro (X32-Edit). 


      If you want the midi command set, I've attached a document provided back in 2014.

    Hi Community

    I am a novice on the MR 18 and try to figure how to find presets for the various effects units. I was convinced that I read, that there would be an extensice library like in the M32/X32 boards and that they were even compatible. All my efforts, to find any presets went into the desert. Any ideas? Am I mistaken.

    Thanks

      Hi Richard @RichardWolter


      Welcome to the forum. We did have these preset libraries in a special section that was easy access. Unfortunately with this new forum interface, that infrastructure is no longer. Even I have difficulty finding things now. Fortunately I have saved copies on my local drive. Attached is a compilation by one of the forum members of the presets, etc.

     Sorry for the simple question, BUT, my band is looking at an M32C and a DL32 stage box for pres. This will give us a true 32 channel board, my question is for the main outs. Unlike analog boards, and the Xair weve been using, there are no main outs on the box, or the M32C, i assume that i can assign main out duties to a pair of the 16 sends on the stage box via the virtual patchbay in edit..... Is this a correct assumption?     

    Thanks in advance

      Correct.  Using Edit you can assign signals (be they monitor buses for IEMs, DOs for whatever reason, main outs for FOH, preamp passthrough, etc) to appear on the DL32's XLR sockets (AES50 1-16, the last 4 of which will also appear on its 2x stereo AES3 sockets,) its ADAT sockets (AES50 17-32,) and its ultranet socket (AES50 33-48.)

    Hi hope I'm not repeating myself here. I have a wee question on all things router / ipad. We recently used xAir for the first time in a live set up and while it connected there was a fair delay in picking up a signal and what I would term as lag when making changes etc. I have just purchased a router as per some stuff I've seen on here. 

     

    My question really is this, when connecting router to xAir, when I then connect ipad am I searching for the xAir as I would normally would if busing xAir as wireless access point, or am I looking for router name. 

    Hope that makes sense, basically I don't have access to a PC to check router settings so is this another thing I need to purchase. 

     

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Peter, welcome to the community.


       


      You will be connecting your tablet to the router's Wifi SSID. This often includes the manufacturer's name in abbreviated form. Ideally use the 5GHZ SSID to reduce interference problems. Many routers now come with WPA2 security enabled by default. The password is usually printed on the product label or in the user guide.


       


      Once the Wifi is connected, the XAir control app can search for the mixer's IP address.


       


      You should be able to use your tablet's Internet browser to adjust the router settings. The user guide or product label usually shows the name or IP address of the internal web server and login name/password.

    Sorry for the dumb question, but need to be sure. Im considering an X32 and it has 8 onboard preamps. If i add the 16 channel digital snake and connect via the ethernet port, will i be able to use the 16 onboard pres AND the 16 pres on the snake for a total of 32? or do i have to buy the 32 channel snake to get all 32 inputs?

     

    thanks for the help

      That is correct James. You can choose an SD16, S16, two SD8 or one of the Midas stageboxes (such as the DL16) to have a total of 32 preamps available.

      @staceyhainey @Paul_Vannatto I can't beleive Paul didn't mention his favorite combination—2 X32 Racks!


      32 inputs, 16 outputs and 2 Mix engines. Monitor like a professional.

      Didn't want to scare him off Dave. But you are correct - best setup ever (even adds backup).

     Hello,

    I am sure this has been asked before. We tried out our new XR 12 last night at a live performance for the first time.

    We had two main issues.  The unit kept dropping the Wi-Fi connection, and the sliders on the X Air controller were very difficult to move on the iPad.

    We are now going to use a separate Router. Should we connect this with an ethernet cable to the XR 12? With a better Wi-Fi connection, will this make the sliders easier to move up and down on the iPad screen? All help appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi Glynn,


       


      This is a common problem when using the internal access point at gigs. It cannot cope with large numbers of phones hunting for internet connections.


       


      An external router/accesspoint should help. Yes you connect one of the router's LAN ports to the XR12's Ethernet port and switch the network mode switch to Ethernet.


       


      Ideally get a router that supports 802.11ac Wifi and has multiple external antennae. If possible, connect your tablets to the 5GHz SSID as this is less troubled by phones. I usually disable the router's 2.4GHz SSID. 5GHz Wifi does not have the same range as 2.4GHz but, if you place the router away from equipment and cables, it should be sufficient.

      Hi Rex,


      I also have a problem of the access point connection dropping constantly at the gig. So... in order to secure the connection with a password, I watched the Behringer video instruction on YouTube, downloaded and connected to X Air edit as directed, went through all the steps to create a WEP connection with a password, and it SHOULD work... I'm not prepared to buggerise around with another  router to solve the problem.


      Any thoughts?


       


      Cheers,

      @GeoffHealey 


      Hi Geoff, welcome to the forums.


       


      Setting WEP security on the internal access point will not solve the problem. Even though they do not achieve a connection, the access point cannot cope with large numbers of phones probing it while searching for routes to the Internet. In these circumstances, it is likely to drop connections from control devices - even when they are physically close. The built-in access point is fine for use at home and for setting-up the network configuration but it is not sufficiently robust for use at gigs.


       


      Suitable dual-band 802.11ac routers can be compact and reasonably priced. I have had good results with an earlier version of Wavlink AC1200 (which I like because the antennae fold down flat for transport). It worked straight out of the box. There are many similar devices on the market and the latest models benefit from advances in Wifi technology that give improved range and resistance to interference.

      Hi Rex,


      Thanks for your reply, I will definitely look into the router you suggested... needs must, I guess!


      I have another small issue with the XR12 which you might be able to help me with... I'm trying to use my ipad XAIR mixer app to send reverb to the AUX 2 output (my external monitor), but only to the channels that need it. I'm sure it's super simple but I'm having trouble wrapping my head around buses, inserts, sends etc...


      Would appreciate any help you can offer?


       


      Cheers,

    OK, call me stupid (but please don't), but how do I run Garageband tracks from my Mac through my XR16 in stereo? At the present, I'm only able to pan all left or right and run mono, and I'm running from my headphone jack on the mac to the XLR input on XR16.

      Hi Rod, welcome to the community.


       


      You will need a splitter cable to separate the left and right channels from your Mac and then connect them to two linked channels on your XR16. Like this one.


       


      Headphone outputs are a fairly high level so the TRS inputs are fine.

    Here is a question that I should know. 

    When using DCAs, what is the resulting product in a technical sense if I raise the level above the unity level? This is presuming that I have maintained a reasonable gain structure and clutter or distortion is minimized. I am finding myself pushing the vocal DCA upward as much as   3-5 db in some instances. But I can’t say definitively that I am hearing any detrimental sonic product by doung this. I never have done this with my Pro1. But my regular gig has me on an X or M32 most of the time.

      Hi @JeffreyBridges ,


       


      There will be no adverse effects of having a DCA level above 0dB - provided the final outputs do not reach 0dBFS. This is the same for all elements in the signal chain on X32, M32 and XAir mixers.. The internal signal path is 40 bit floating-point and cannot clip (with realistic signal levels). It is only at the analogue/digital and digital/analogue interfaces that clipping can occur.
