    I was wondering if anyone has used an X32 Rack to optimize vocals in the following way. Instead of having the singers wear out the voice while the sound guys make all the adjustments, could the singers be recorded without processing. With the singers offline, the sound technicians could then adjust the vocals while playing back the recordings in the same venue. The adjustments could then be transfered to the vocal channels for the live performances. If the X32 is used in such a manner, would the adjustments made from the playback be relevant for the live performance or would there be some differences?

      Hi Don, welcome to the community.


       


      This technique is sometimes called Virtual Soundcheck and it can be quite useful. If you record the channels over USB or on an X-Live card, the signals come from the channel's A/D converter - prior to any in-channel processing. When played back, they should enter the channel processing at the same point. This can be configured with X32 Edit on the Routing -> Inputs tab using the Record and Play buttons.


       


      Changes to channel processing during a Virtual Soundcheck playback will be equally valid for live performance as long as the input level does not change too much. Changing a channel's Mic Gain after a Virtual Soundcheck would invalidate some of the settings..

      @dmorrier A virtual soundcheck does this very task. The signal is taken right from the preamp, recorded, then played back through the same channel the signal came from. It will be the same, except for the variance in the human performance. It's a good method to save time, save voices, fingers, embouchure  and perfect your soundcheck.

    Howdy...

     

    I have an X32 with the X-live card. I'm currently using the USB port to send 2 groups (16 channels) to a laptop for external processing (using LiveProfessor, although I'm considering Waves Multirack).

     

    I'm wondering if I can still use the X-Live to record to the SD card too? Or can I record via USB by somehow splitting the inputs in the laptop? Is this even possible? Thanks!

     

    Best,

    Ben

      Hi @BenFreedman,


       


      You can still record to SD when using the USB outputs. They are separate processes although they share the same 32 signals that are routed to the card.

    I've been trying to find this question through support, but to no avail if someone can help me out please!

    I have my small Behringer Xenex 1202FX mixer, I use only for vocals and sometimes an instrument, out from my main mixer.

    I would like to "Aux Out" just the voices to my TOA SM-25A {Slant} Stage Monitor. The only outs that I see on the mixer that I think would be used would be "L/R Control Room Outs" and the "L/R Main Outs". both giving me all from the mixer There are no Aux outs. Can anyone tell me how I can hook up the Stage Monitor with the Xenyz Mixer to properly hear only our voices on stage?   Thanks

      Hello Joseph, welcome to the community.


       


      The 1202FX mixer does not include a monitor send. The only way you could do this would be to use the FX Send output although the channel sends to this are post-fader - not ideal for a monitor mix. It would also mean that you could not use the FX processor for some of the channels and it may be better to disable it by turning the Return right down.

    The small laptop I've used for mixing is not a multi touch screen so I'm considering moving to an iPad or Android tablet.

     

    Is one preferential over the other?

     

    I've been using X Air Edit since we got the mixer a few years ago and recently the Android X Air app.

      In terms of value for money, I don't think you can beat Android tablets. Controlling a mixer doesn't need a particularly fast processor but a good display is valuable. The Amazon Fire tablets - in 8" and 10" sizes - are very good for mixer control. They support 801.11ac Wifi (5GHz) and have good battery life.


       


      Mixing Station XAir is much better than the older Android app and is also available for iOS devices. You can get it through the Amazon store, Google PlayStore and Apple App Store. The custom layout feature makes it easy to tailor the screen display to suit your requirements.

      Hmm.  It's not clear to me that the Android app is multi-touch either.  Has anyone actually pushed one fader up while pulling another down?

    Does anyone know the purpose of the threaded insert on the top of a Eurolive B208D speaker? Can this be used for hanging the speaker?

    Hi All,

     

    Posted this over in the Musicians tribe, but maybe this is the better place.

    I recently got the M-AIR app on my iPad, and as I didn’t know what I was doing, I deleted channel 5 from the Scribble Script in the Setup menu, and I cannot figure out how to get it back!

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Thanks.

      Hi Dana,


       


      Adding the lost channel back to the layer is probably not difficult but, for detailed instructions, we need someone who uses the M-AIR app on an iPad. I don't so this is a guess: Click Setup and see if there is a Layer option. If there is, select it and choose the required layer (All Channels?). Look for a + or Edit button. This would normally allow you to add the missing channel. You may need to drag and drop the channel to get it into the right place.


       


      If all else fails, I suggest you get the Mixing Station XAir app. The default layout will support all the channels. A big advantage is that there are a lot of us who use this app so we can help you if you get stuck at any time.

    Any idea why I couldn't enable phantom power using the XAir Android app last night at practice? I only had my phone, not my laptop, but couldn't enable it on any channel.  Can't even enable it in offline mode!

     

    Thoughts?

      On the Android X-Air app, you have to long-press the +48V button to toggle the phantom power.

    I'm new to the X32 Compact and trying to understand a few things. First: it has the 3.09 firmware and I see there is now a 3.11 firmware.. but the release notes for the newer one state: "Please be aware that firmware 3.09 is required for our new X32-Edit 3.2 on PC / Mac / Linux computers, ". So does that mean if I want to use X32-Edit, I should remain on 3.09? That is the way it is written, so will assume it won't work on 3.11. But I want to check.

     

    The main reason I was looking at firmware is because the wiki and the pdf manual do not match my version, so it is difficult to find answers to some things without bothering you folks. For example, under Routing, there is the Analog Out page, where mine says Out 1-16. No big deal. But under the Out 1-16 page  for Tap, there are several choices not covered in the manual. Examples: IN/LC, IN/LC +M, PreEQ +M,  etc.  What is IN/LC, what is M? (obvious beginner here).

    thanks, JD

      @Hunkydory 3.11 was just released. It will work.


      The PDF manual is old. A bunch of stuff was changed in various firmware updates.


      This wiki is a good resource https://behringerwiki.musictribe.com/index.php?title=Main_Page. The Midas M32 manual is also a good resource.


      IN/LC +M is the preamp and LowCut filter. M is for Mutes (affecting the tapped signal).

      Have x32Edit software version 3.2.  Hardware unit is 32x Rack


      The manual for the hardware does not translate well for me to the software. 


      I expect the following will be an easy question to have answered for anyone even casually familiar with the current version of the software?:


       


      Monitor mix question --


      Channels 1 thru 6 will be for six vocalists.


      Scribble sheets for each channel filled in and routing signal to FOH stacks are not an issue.


       


      I am using a powered floor monitor and I just need to feed it the six vocal channels at equal volume. They will need to be pre-fader of course.


      Need to know how to assign in the software these six channels to output to a mono monitor XLR output.


      (If I can get baby steps I believe it will unlock the rest of the software for me; learning one basic secret handshake can work wonders)

      @RJWlaw 


      Assuming your monitor is connected to XLR out 1 (and default routing):


      Screen Shot 2019-04-28 at 9.19.31 PM.pngPush the "BUS 1" button. This puts you in "sends on fader" Mode. Now any fader you push up will send that signal to your monitor (and not change the Mains Level). Raise the fader for each of the 6 vocalists to the desired level. 


      Push "Main LR" to return you back to normal mixing mode.


      If you have any questions, just ask.


      Good Luck.

      Thank you much.  !


       


      1.  When I am in that mode can I EQ each of the 6 chaneels to optimize clarity in the monitor without affecting the FOH EQ settings for each of those channels?


       


      2.  Same question, but as to effects.

      You can choose no EQ or FOH EQ by selecting the "tap point" for the monitor signal, OR


      Duplicate those 6 vocal channels on 6 unused channels. Those 6 channels would not feed the FOH mix (because you would turn off the "LR" feed)—only the monitor. Then you would have independent EQ. 


       



      2.  Same question, but as to effects.





      Signal from the first 4 FX can be sent to the monitor bus.

    I just bought a cat7 25' cable to extend my Ubiquiti AP. It now has a cat6 at 15'. Do you think the cat7 will work for this application?

      Hi @garypegb


       


      Which application are you referring to? Cat5e or cat6a are good for up to 320'. I'm using cat7 for my Turbosound iQ Ultranet hookup without issues.

       I use a Ubiquiti Outdoor 5 for gigs both inside and out and I use cat7 with it (almost all my cable is now cat7) so it should work just fine.

      Hi @SergioB,


       


      Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately putting any info in the subject line and nothing in the post itself makes it hard to answer your question. What mode is the S16? Is it connected to an X32? Please give more details (since my crystal ball hasn't worked for some time).

      I have a x32, plugged into AES50 A with 2 S16, the first in configuration 1-8 and the other in configuration 9-16, for some time, when the desk is doing the gain digitally. In between -2 dB and 45.5 dB the level of sound coming through stays completely constant. It is like the gains of the S16 inputs are stuck., for the moment the only way to adjust this is to close the S16 and open it.

      Hi @SergioB,


       


      Do you have the following interconnectivity mapping ([A] and [B] are port designations)


      X32 [A] <-> [A] S16 #1 [B] <-> [A] S16 #2


       


      Which unit is the master clock? The X32 should be set to master clock (Setup, global, Synchronization -> Internal) not the S16 (SN Master light should be off)?


       


      How are you setting the gains - on the channel strips or on the Setup, preamps screen?

      The console and 2 S16, have been installed for 5 years in the same place, and the connection has never moved.

      Thanks Sergio @SergioB for those details.


       


      One other question, have you confirmed that both S16 are not also master clock (see configuration). The first S16 should be in mode 1 and the second S16 should be in mode 2 (SN Master light is off). If they are set as such, then I would suspect a hardware issue, but cannot determine which unit (contact CARE at [email protected] or (+1) 702-800-8290 for the US and Canada and (+44) 1562 732290 in Europe).
