    I watched the Youtube tech demonstrate recording to a USB stick.  When he plugged the thumb drive in, a small light lit up next to the slot.  Mine doesn't light up.  How do you turn on the USB thumb drive port, so the Xair recorder will record?

    thanks,

      RichardYClark Have you formatted the thumb drive as FAT32 before plugging it into the X Air mixer? Which version of the X Air have you got?

      RichardYClark Nobody knows except Behringer and they won't say until there is one ready I'm afraid, if ever now in the present X Air's stage of development.

    1. I need to make my monitor mix post fader. I mix from the stage and want the levels to change in monitor if I have to move them. Using mix bus 1

      Go to each channel Sends screen and change the tap to post fader. Understand that channel sends taps are in pairs (eg. bus 1/2, 3/4, etc) which will mean that you will also change the tap for mixbus 2.

      Hi Paul,


      I see that the outputs are paired but I can't seem to find how to separate so they are one to one. I am also doing this on the software connected to my PC. Could you elaborate a little more. Thank you for your help in advance.

    Hello!
    https://www.behringer.com/Categories/Behringer/Mixers/Digital/XR12/p/P0BI6#googtrans(en|en)

    This mixer is controlled by tablet but tablet has its own volume down and up fuction.
    Is tablets own volume control affecting any way the output sound of the mixer? Can tablets volume fuction set to be working as a main volume gain?

    In my case I need tablet for the sports club music kiosk. I need to limit the volume with scheduler. The volume limiter app works with tablets output sound only. I hope I was specific enough

    Thank you!

      No that is not possible. The XR12 can only be controlled by an X-Air app, such as Mixing Station or some of the other third party tools. No audio comes to the tablet. The app only controls the mixer using OSC commands.

    Hello all,

         I have a Europower PMP2000D and want to connect a powered Mackie Thump 18s to the mixer. Can anyone tell me how to do this. There is no 1/4 aux connector on the mixer, only the L/R RCA's and a FX Footsw. Would i have to run the RCA outputs (using an RCA to XLR) to the sub?

     

    Thank you,

    Nakoakane

      RichardYClark Looking at the PMP 2000 spec it appears to have several jack outputs marke Monitor, Left/Mono and Right. So just use a jack to XLR lead from the Left/Mono out I would suggest.

    Would like to feel out the viability of a rack for the FOH and a console for mixing monitors. What are the equipments connecting to/from in this scenario? Is there a flow chart for this setup? Needs to incorporate a router for remote iPad FOH mixing and artist iPhone/ Android monitor mixing. Console to be used for mixing monitors in festival situations where phone mixing by band members is not practical.  All will be side stage with the exception of the DLs to be spread across the stage for inputs and outputs for mains L&R and powered monitor speakers for the band.

    How many channels is the absolute maximum that both will “see” and control?

    i am trying to come up with a solution that is similar in functionality to my present SL RML32ai rack mixers (2 of them for 64 channels) as a replacement.

    What is the best way to hook up XR18 to IQ15 speakers? Currently using XLR to each speaker, with input on speakers set to Mic. What I don't understand is that when the input switch on the IQ15s are set to Line, I get almost nothing out of the speakers. I guess I don't understand the difference between Mic and Line for signal input on these speakers.  I may go ahead and get some Cat 5 cables and give that a try but fear it may be over my head. Just so you know, I'm new to running any kind of legit PA system and I have no clue what the hell I'm doing. I'm a master at HVAC but a hobbyist drummer that recently was given lead vocal duties in our little cover band, so I got a kick ass PA. I just need a little guidance.

      Hi David @Daverhoid,


      Welcome to the forum. Connecting the XR18 to iQ speakers, you want the input on line, not mic since the XR18 outputs line level. If it isn't loud enough it means that the iQ input gains are set too low. Increase them to around 0db to start with, then adjust accordingly.


       


      Mic level is 1/10 or lower than line level. That means the input has to accommodate that difference. Mic inputs go through a preamp in the iQ to raise the signal to line level.

      Thanks for the answer Paul @Paul_Vannatto . Is the input gain not just knob or do I need to get into the LCD menus to set that? There is more to the story. I'm pretty sure the Line In worked originally but we got a little loud and toasty and had a pretty gnarly feedback event. I had the FB suppression set on Auto, yet things got out of control. It took a few seconds to get things muted and then one iq wasn't working. After flipping switches and stuff, found that Line In is pretty non existent on both speakers. Mic In works perfectly. I can't imagine that the feedback episode fried anything but maybe it did. I'd rank the feedback episode a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. That shouldn't harm such good speakers IMHO

      *Update* Figured out the the feedback suppression needed to be reset. Apparently it was killing all the frequencies. I guess the feedback episode was worse than I remembered. Needless to say, I likely won't enable Auto Feedback Suppression in the DSP anymore. All is working well now.

    hello just installed the 6.8.2 version, updated the firmware for 3.03 on a 2 LM26's  but it on the controller software it is saying the modules has old firmware could you please help?

      6.8.2 should have brought the firmware upto 3.04 so that is why you are getting the error. First make sure you are runnung the Updater associated with 6.8.2. All versions have there own updater and if you have installed multiple versions of Lake on your PC each has its own updater. When you open updater it should give you a target version of 3.04. If this is not the case I would go back to Lake and download the software agiain. Reinstall it and run its associated Updater.

    I just picked up an XR18, my first digital mixer, and I want to practice with it, learn my way around the PC and the iPad interface, explore the effects, etc. I'll be mixing on an XR32 next month in a live setting, and I want to have plenty of experience with the user interface before then.

    I downloaded a couple of multitrack recordings, and imported one into Presonus Studio One 4 Prime (the free version). I've connected my PC to my XR18 with a USB cable, and I can get Studio One to play the full mix over any 2 channels, but I can't seem to figure out how to get each track to a different channel so I can mix on the XR18.

    I'm in NO way tied to Studio One, I just grabbed it because it was free and a friend recommended it. I just want to practice mixing on my XR18 and get very familiar with the interface.

    So, any suggestions?

      Hi Michael, welcome to the forums.


       


      Have you installed the XR18 ASIO USB driver on your PC? If not, you will not be able to access all eighteen channels on the USB link. Also check with XAir Edit on Setup -> Audio/Midi that USB Interface 18/18 ch is selected.

      Thank you RexBeckett!


      Yep, I have the ASIO driver installed and the USB 18/18 set properly.


      I tried Reaper, and was able to map each track to an output. I can now mute each channel, but can't solo any of them. Curiouser and curiouser.


      Getting closer!

      When you solo one or more channels on an XR18 they are fed to the Monitor bus. You can normally hear this on the Phones output. It is possible to reassign the Main XLR outputs to the Monitor bus on the In/Out -> Main Out tab.
