    Hope you can help.  Just bought a Behringer UM2.

    I've connected it to windows laptop using Audacity and I can record the input on the MIC/LINE1.  I checked the input via the headphone monitor and the RCA connectors on the rear and it is mono with both sides playing the same signal. 

    But when I plug the guitar into INST2 I can't configure the laptop to 'see' the second channel.  I can hear it on the headphone monitor and on the RCA connectors, again it is mono with the same signal on both left and right channels but nothing seems to get to the digital input into the laptop.  I've tried all Audacity input configurations but no signal from the elusive INST2.

    I've used Audacity and Presonus Studio to try to record it but neither works.

    Can anyone help, is the UM2 faulty?

    Hi all,

     

    im hoping someone can help me. I just bought a tc helicon go twin so that I can use bias tc on my iPhone at home to practice guitar. I'm about to take it back for a refund as the input distorts when even when the gain is set as low as it can go. When I plug my guitar into another interface of mine this doesn't happen. It's pretty significant distortion and just general tone loss. Am I doing something wrong? I have had a similar problem with an irig pro duo which I believe the go twin is copying. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello,

    1. Is it better to control my XR18 during a live gig through a wifi-connected (via external router) Android tablet or through a wifi connected (also via external router) PC (laptop)? 

    2. Relatedly, is there some sort of priority one gets over the other? For example, if one person is making changes through the PC does the PC somehow block any changes another person puts in through their tablet or phone (changes to in ear monitor AUX outs, for example)?

    3. Finally, can someone confirm that snapshots are saved in the mixer whereas scenes are saved in the controlling device? If so, if I save a scene in my laptop and call it up at the start of the gig, can I then move my controlling to the tablet and use the tablet during the gig? Then at the end of the gig would I have to start the laptop back up to save the gig's "scene"?

    Thanks and sorry for the complicated questions. I am new and we gig tomorrow.

    Brian

      Paul_Vannatto 1. Yes that is the way I've been doing it for the past few years. For the android app, you should get Mixing Station and use a dual (or triple) band external router (use the 5Ghz band).
      2. No, there is no priority. But with Mixing Station, you can restrict control to a certain mixbus (for their IEM's, etc) and you can run unrestricted for the Main LR outputs.
      3. Yes, snapshot are stored in the XR18 (up to 64 of them) and scenes are stored on the device (eg. laptop) as scene files. What you describe is how I do it.

    I just bought an XR12.  Is it possible to plug in a Bluetooth interface with dual rca? I'm looking to connect my iPhone to the mixer to play music out of it. With my X32 rack there are stereo left right that I connect the rca cable to.  Thanks!

      Paul_Vannatto Yes you should be able to use a bluetooth interface. But you will need a couple of RCA to 1/4" cables to connect to the XR12.

    I've been using my 4 year old X Air 18 with the same computer running Windows 10 almost daily, and suddenly yesterday evening when I powered up my "studio", no sound could be heard from any of my inputs.For about 4 years all I have needed to do was power the X18, then power up my PC, (or vice versa) and I could hear all my inputs including the output audio of my PC.

    Now, I have to open the X Air editor program to hear my inputs and see the X Air digital meters respond to audio. At about 80% load progress of the editor, I begin to hear sound. Very peculiar. Very irritating.

    Has anybody experienced this?

    I am running V1.5 of the X Air editor, and W10 Pro v 10.0.19041 Build 19041.

      DaveBeard Current firmware version is 1.09 fwiw.
      • Fri at 12:45 PM
    • DaveBeard
      Paul_Vannatto That firmware is pretty old Dave. Current version is 1.18 and X-Air Edit 1.7. I would suggest you first update both firmware and Edit.

      Thanks Paul, I have updated both successfully, and unfortunately, there is no change in my issue.

      Paul_Vannatto When you sync X-Air Edit to the PC, which direction are you doing it - Mixer to PC or PC to Mixer?

      PedroRodrigues Hi scoote3639 thank you for your post ,you can set up the Auto Gain on the unit, by holding the Set button until it turns red engages the automatic gain setting. While holding the Set button depressed, sing as loud as you can. This sets the gain to the proper level and ensures that you won't encounter clipping during your performance. Releasing the Set button will bring up a red LED ring that indicates the current gain setting.
      At this point, you can let the gain setting window time out after a few seconds, which will enable the "nudge" function. If you happen to sing louder during the performance than you did while setting the gain, the nudge function will reduce the gain slightly to avoid clipping.
      Thank you

    Thanks to Paul Vannatto and others on this forum/tribe. The lightbulb turned on. I get it now. I understand how the parts connect, how to make changes easily, and get it to do what we need. It's very exciting.

      Dale_M I am afraid we cannot share schematics with non partners we can assist with a non warranty repair via the support tab/Service if you require assistance.

    First of all, as a pro sound engineer and recent owner of the Behringer FLOW 8 mixer, I’d like to say THANK YOU to create a small digital mixer with all its capabilities, that I waited since a long time to do lots of things.
    To be more versatile, the FLOW 8 could have some improvements. Some fonctions are really missing, others could be useful. This could make the FLOW 8 to be used in many other situations.
    I think and hope these modifications can be achieved with ease, thanks to app and firmware updates.

    List of request for FLOW 8 Mixer & App improvements:
    Essentials improvements:
    - The possibility to switch MON 1 & MON 2 :  PRE / POST Fader (selectable per channel)
    (exemple -> fade out in LR for FOH, and fade out in the MON on stage at the same time)
    - MUTE et SOLO per channel -> access in the App mixer page (not only in the channel settings)
    - CLEAR SOLO access from Mixer surface (really annoying from the app only)
    - Phase Reverse (⍉) on microphones inputs 1- 2 - 3 - 4  (exemple to reverse the bottom mic of a snare)
    - Compressor Settings (With + parameters) to have access to Threshold / Ratio / Attack / Release
    - Noise Gate ( basic at least ) on Inputs channels (can be really useful)
    - Access Output Delay in the App - (Delta 0…341ms)
    - MUTE et SOLO per channel -> possibility to control from Mixer surface
    (Mute, Solo, Pan, and maybe also EQ, Gate, Comp, Limiter…)
    - Using MUTE switch as a Mute Group (selectable per channel)
    - Routing - > send FX returns to MON 1 or MON 2 or phones (not only in LR mix)

    If possible technically with the FLOW 8:
    - Provide Phantom Power +48 V on Mic 3 / 4 channels
    - Unlink Inputs 5/6 & 7/8 (2 x stereo) To 5, 6, 7, 8 (4 x mono inputs)
    (even with the same physical fader for the channels 5/6 & 7/8, could be controlled in the app or with a different Gain, Eq etc..)
    - Channel Input Delay can be useful (for exemple: monitoring audio from video)
    - Possibility Unlink Output equalizers
    - Possibility L/R Stereo summing to Mono

    And of course: for a next generation of FLOW mixer, motorized faders could be awesome ; )
    Thank You and Cheers !
