    Hello,

    I finally manage to find a DN32 card to implement Dante on my X32 (firmware 4.06).

    I've search quite a bit on the web and still haven't find a solution. I would like to pass Midi thru the Dante network between my laptop and the console. I acknowledge that it is possible to do it between 2 computers with rtp midi but I haven't find any solution between the mac and the X32. Am I missing something ?

      Paul_Vannatto The X32 does not support RTP Midi. As well, the X32 Midi implementation is designed to control the console (on a limited capability) only.

      Thanks Paul. It's just that I was able to send program change and Midi CC from Live to the console with my old Xusb card. I'm really amazed that it is not possible thru a Dante network. Guess I have to use usb/midi cable then. Cheers

    I just recently got a Behringer X32 (the full size mixer, Powered by Midas, etc.) and was getting it set up for my band to run our backtracks, in ears, and routing and all that. It was working fine on both my PC desktop and my Macbook, but then I decided to update the firmware, because the tutorials I was following online didn't match the user interface and options on mine.

    As soon as I did that, the USB card stopped working and neither computer would recognize it as being plugged in, as well as the X32 saying "No External Card Inserted" when looking on the setup menu.

    This issue persisted after trying a factory reset as well.

    I contacted support and went through some troubleshooting and nothing worked, so he thought the card must be dead, and I should replace it.

    I did that yesterday, and just got a new card today.

    However, this one is having the exact same problem. Maybe both cards are dead, but it seems a little unlikely. Is there some other issue that may cause the X32 to not recognize the card?

      KevinMaxwell Have you updated the firmware on the card yet?

      Nigel67 Hi Andersavage. I just checked your case. This must be a very old console (2012 - 2013) as you are using the X-UF card and the card you went and got is a X-UF card. If you have upgraded to 4.06 from 2.05, then you should definitely check that the X-UF card is definitely running the latest firmware version. You can download it from the software tab here https://www.behringer.com/behringer/product?modelCode=P0AQK. Can you send me a picture of the Setup - Global page as this shows firmware versions of the various boards. The console is on internal clock and not external?

    Hello. I am attempting to connect the Xenyx Mixer 302 USB to my desktop computer that utilizes Windows 10. After conecting my stereo system to the Mixer, through the Line Input and the 2 Track Input, I conected the Main Mix output on the Mixer, using RCA cables, directly into the back of my computer, through the Line In jack. I am attempting to record the sound onto my Audacity program. With this set up, everything works fine. Except for the fact that there is a lot of noise combined with the sound from the Mixer, which I have concluded is caused at the connection point of the Line In jack connection on back of my computer. So, in an effort to eliminate noise, I purchased an RCA to USB cable, which I have connected from the Main Mix Output to the computer. Now my computer is unable to locate the Xenyx Mixer 302 USB. So, am I not able to use the RCA to USB cable, or must I have to download a program in order to record from the Mixer. Thank You.

      Dale_M This will cause a conflict as the computer is likely seeing the RCA to USB as another sound source, you would be better to try your original working set up on a different DAW or even better a different computer to see if the noise follows the 302 or goes on the new connection.

    Is there a trick to get an X-Touch channel arrangement to match the order I move them to on the X-32 Edit software?

    I thought I had it working, but now it's not. I make changes in X-32 Edit, and nothing changes on the X-Touch.

    I have the X-32 Rack set up in the REMOTE tab for X-Touch over Ethernet, and I can connect the X-touch to the X-32, but the channels on the X-Touch are in the input order, not in the order I move them to on the X-32 Edit software.

    At one point I made a change on the software and it transferred to the X-Touch, but I can't get it to work again.

      Paul_Vannatto I just responded to your previous thread. The reason why your latest responses did not show up was because you used the notification link to go to the thread. When you post from there, it goes into a parallel universe and doesn't show up in our universe - and the developers refuse to fix the problem (or they have no clue on how to fix it).

      WWSBengineering Thank you, however this did not work. I unchecked all the boxes before saving a scene, then rearranged the order, saved again (unchecking everything), and when I load the first one, nothing changes. If I change color on a scribble strip and save that as a different scene, unchecking everything, it will recall the first color when loading the original, and change when I recall the new one with the color change, but again, nothing changes with the order.

      Again, this is on the X32 Edit software, not on the X-32 Rack itself.

      I also don't know how to get the channel order over to an X-Touch. The X-Touch only shows the input order, I can't seem to rearrange on the X-Touch for better user functionality.

      Paul_Vannatto I can't help with the X-Touch (since I don't have or use one). But I do use the X32 Rack and have extensively used the X32-Edit since 2013 (previously called X32-Console).

      Also make sure there are no safes enabled (checked) on the Mixer Safes screen. I can assure you that if all safes are unchecked, all settings (except for the first 4 screens of the Setup) will be changed. The only other possibility that can affect settings being changed is due to using a poor quality wifi between X32-Edit and X32 Rack.

      DaveMorrison I believe I did this years ago. The X-Touch has to be connected to the computer vis USB in MCU mode (iirc). I made a video connecting an X-touch extender to my X32 using X32-Edit as a bridge between protocols (https://youtu.be/d7t8OfNX0Wc). I think I did custom channel order with that video. These days, Mixing Station can do all sorts of cool connection tricks–Totally customizable.

      SteveLynch WWSB, On My M32C, which is basically the screenless equivalent of the X32 rack (for all intents and purposes), this is the process I use to organize My faders on the X Touch. it just works, so maybe it'll just work for you?

      I have no idea what your workflow is, so please don't take offense to me re-hashing the basics as I execute them.
      You clearly have it communicating, so I know you're not some potato head.

      There must be a reason it's not working for you, but it is for me, so let's just throw a second set of eyes on it, and do it the exact same way I do it, as there's actually a couple of different ways to go about it from what I've seen online.
      My biggest take away from all of this however, is that I swear by static IP addresses for everything.

      DHCP just seems to act irrationally. It sees the mixer, it doesn't see the mixer, it's connected, it's disconnected..... I don't know....

      DHCP is like my ex-wife. Everything seems to be going fine, then something sets it off, it goes and drinks a bottle of vodka, and then sleeps with the majority of the local "Pub league" softball team in the parking lot of the local elementary school's athletic field, before crashing it's car into the telephone pole at the entrance to our neighborhood where literally everyone will see it on it's hands and knees, throwing up on the neighbor's front lawn, as they're returning home from work, then call me to ask what happened without seeming like they're being too nosey..........

      Yeah, that's pretty much how DHCP seems to work out for mixer control. At least in My experience... Your mileage may vary.

      Because it's "mostly" working for you, I would suspect an X Touch setup error, or a mismatch in firmware.
      You want the X-Touch to be on the latest firmware that was available at the time your mixer's firmware was last updated.
      The version of X32 edit also needs to be of the same vintage.
      It's easiest to just make sure all 3 are up to date.

      Here's My setup steps for the X Touch.
      Compare them to yours just to make sure you aren't inadvertently missing a step, or setting.
      However, I know your job position intimately, so I already know that like me, you're a pretty thorough dude. You have to be to survive in a broadcast environment.

      Just humor me, and let's see if it makes any difference at all.

      1) Connect the x touch to the x32 either directly with a crossover cable, or through a known good router.
      2) Connect your computer to the X32 via direct crossover, or through that same router.
      3) Make sure you know the Lan IP, and subnet of the router.

      ***Behringer engineers told me that they recommended a USB gigabit ethernet dongle. (Just in case you're re-purposing an old stale laptop for mixer control, which might have a legacy ethernet controller. )
      I like having a removable USB NIC anyway, as I can control the mixer, and still use My internet if I want to.
      When I'm done with it, I can simply unplug it, and I don't have to go back in, and change My IP back to My home network's address range. It'll just re-appear when I plug it back in.
      Set your "fancy schmancy" USB NIC, or the computer's built-in NIC to a static IP.
      I usually use the router's IP, plus one for my laptop, so it's easy to remember..
      That way, if the router ends in "eight six dot one" My laptop will always be "eight six dot two".

      4) Go into the X32, and set the first three octets of the IP to the same address as the router, but change the last octet to "32". I just do that so I always know that My M32 mixer is 192.168.86.32

      I have noticed that the X32, M32, X-Air, and Flow, all seem to have occasional issues with DHCP, and finding the mixer even though it was just literally connected a second ago.
      I don't know about you, but on PC, I've noticed since like 3 revisions back, If I'm in DHCP mode, it can take the mixer as long as 5 minutes to re-sync. It's super annoying... The static IP solves that usually.

      5) Open X32 edit, don't just scan, tell it the router's IP manually, then connect.

      6) On the X-Touch, hold Channel 1 "select" button as you power it on. If it's already on, turn it off, then back on holding Ch. 1 select. It should now display a mode selection, and an IP address stretched across several scribble strips.

      7) Make sure that Slave IP that's displayed is one digit higher than the X32, so 192.168.86.33. (or whatever your IP Range is )

      8) Set the mode on Channel 1 to XCTRL, and hit select. I've seen people say MC (Mackie Control), but that's the wrong.

      9) Assuming your IP address is set correctly, it should auto connect. If it doesn't, you can hit the button for the scribble strip that says Scan, but You might as well set it up right the first time if you didn't already, as that's an additional couple seconds of no control if you somehow hose the settings.

      10) Verify all of your functions are doing what they should.

      Then, go ahead and hit the edit button on the left of the x32 edit screen, and clear all channels, and add them in the order you desire. Name, and save it, then your X-touch should match up with the order set in your control app..

      If it does not, do a factory reset of the X-Touch, on the off chance it's Midi table somehow got changed, or corrupted.

      If it's still not better after that, I'm afraid it may just be best to take it out behind the barn, shoot it, and bury it in a shallow unmarked grave.

      I don't make the rules Bud, it is what it is! :)

      • Rearranging Channels on X-Touch with X-32 Rack and X-32 Edit Software
        WWSBengineering Steve... First, I laughed out loud at your description of DHCP. Second, thank you for such a detailed response.

        Just for reference, we have an X-AIR 18 with an X-Touch, and the X-32 Rack with it's own X-Touch.

        All 4 devices have their own static IP addresses, running to the same VLAN.

        I think there was a discrepancy in IP addresses previously. Our IP spreadsheet had the X-32 and accompanying X-Touch at one IP address, but the X-32 was actually set to a different one. I don't think the X-Touch ever got updated. So, I changed the slave IP address to be the address of the X-32 Rack, and the "my IP" to be the IP of the X-Touch. Now when I power it on and go through the steps it actually auto connects. Previously I would have to scan, and sometimes it would find the X-AIR instead.

        Either way, though, when I make changes on X-32 Edit, nothing changes on the X-Touch.

        Do you know the procedure to factory reset an X-Touch?

      • Rearranging Channels on X-Touch with X-32 Rack and X-32 Edit Software
        WWSBengineering Here are two more questions... When you make changes in X32 Edit to say the 1-32 Bank, and a different change the All Bank, how does the X-Touch know which one to take?

        Also, is there a way to see the channel order on the X-32 Rack interface?

        **If I pull the setup from the mixer, it goes to how I want it. I just can't figure out how to get the X-Touch to show the same thing.

        **EDIT - If I sync from the PC to the Mixer, then make a change on the software, then sync from the mixer to the PC, the channel order is not changed to what I had just sent to the mixer.

    Two questions on my XTOUCH in conjunction with XR18:

    1.  Using Windows 10 and MIDI-OX, I'm unable to get MIDI-OX to discover the XTOUCH as a MIDI device.  I've got it connected via USB cable.

    2.  Where is master fader for each AUX Channel.  I understand how to route signal and adjust volume from individual channels into an AUX port.  I cannot figure out how to adjust master volume for each AUX port on the XTOUCH.  Easy to do in XEdit software.  Just make sure the selector is set to the AUX port you want to manage and move the fader in the far lower left hand corner up and down.  How do I accomplish that task on the XTOUCH?

    My "Dad Band" is anxiously awaiting delivery of our new Behringer PMP 500 mixer.  This is primarily for live performance, but is there a method or best practice for recording performances/rehearsals directly from this equipment?  If not, is there some add-on equipment that would make this possible?

    I'm very much a neophyte.

    Is this possible wing new firmware that can use USB, dante, or other expansion card as a channel insert and not just only limit at premium/standard FX external fx.

    Hopefully this can be added to the new firmware.


    Thanks.

    • xavierng1998
      Paul_Vannatto This feature is currently available (and has been in the firmware for quite some time). In the Standard FX list, at the very top is the External plugin. Assign that to one of the channel (or bus) inserts. On the External FX screen, assign the return to one of the channel strips. To assign the sends, do that on the Routing, output, FX Sends screen.

        WING_Fred Hi, we juste need a direct output/return to any signals (USB/Dante/etc..) per chanel and let fx slot free for any inside plugins... (sorry for my english, I'm french!)
        • Thu at 7:29 AM
    • xavierng1998
      Paul_Vannatto You can already assign any signal to outputs and returns. But the channel strip inserts are linked to the FX engines and therefore must use the External plugin in order to make those assignments to the inserts. That is the way the Wing is designed. As far as I know, that design cannot be changed.

    I have a Behringer PMP4000 powered mixer which has 1-8 XLR mono mic inputs and 9/10, 11/12, 13/14 and 15/16 stereo inputs each with separate 1/4" L and R inputs. Can I use a either a 1/4" balanced or a 1/4" unbalanced jack adapters to input a microphone into the left channel of each and get the mono signal out of all speakers on the system. I would like to use 12 low impedance XLR microphones (SM57 or SM58 plus adapters) on my mixer. Am I correct in thinking it is possible?

      WilliamR It is possible to use them, and it won't harm your mic; there is not enough gain to amplify the microphone level to a line input. If the device the microphone is connected to is only line level, you will need to connect your mic to a preamp and then connect the preamp to the line input.
      • Sep 16
    • JosephHillebrqn
      JosephHillebrqn WilliamR - That makes perfect sense. I will look into getting preamps for the mics. Thank you.
