    for a theatreproduction we need an 'audiotech' on stage. This will be an actor mainly controlling ques, starts, fades and stuff. In FOH I will be controlling the overall sounds including headsets. Is there a way to sync two m32's? This way he can do all his stuff, but I will still have full control over everything. Sharing inputs is easy, routing his outputs to me is easy, but having full control from two places is not something I figured out yet. If syncing both consoles is not an option I can work without(I'll have a laptop to control his console), but I'm just curious if its an option. 

    Hope someone has an idea.

      Paul_Vannatto Using the laptop (or tablet) is the only option available to control another M32.

      KevinMaxwell Using the laptop (or tablet) the way that Paul suggests is the best and probably easiest way to do it and is how I would recommend doing it. For the last couple of musicals that I did I had an unmanned X32 Compact in the pit as the monitor mixer for the pit. I had control of it at FOH with a computer and I also let the video recording person hook up their computer so the pit mix to them could be controlled by them. I was using a WING at FOH.

      There might be another way to do it but it would be more expensive and also not as flexible as just using a laptop or tablet.

      There might be a way to do what you want over Midi if you add a (MSEP) Midi Solutions Event Processor. I use one between two different Midas M32 consoles with it setup to just send certain Midi commands from the main M32 to the secondary M32. They are next to each other and I go from the Main M32 Midi Out to the Midi in on the MSEP then the Midi out of the MSEP to the secondary M32 Midi in. I have only done this in one direction so I don’t know if it could be done with 2 MSEP one for each direction. Theoretically is should work but the maximum recommended length (50 feet) of a Midi cable if probably too short for your needs to allow for a cable run from FOH to the stage. The MSEP needs to be programed to only pass the Midi that you want passed between the 2 consoles.

      To overcome the cable length restrictions there are Midi extenders available see this link -
      https://www.midiextender.com/ap_notes/Beyond%20the%20MIDI%2050%20ft%20Limit.htm

      But the other issue is the Midi implementation (on the M32/X32) is limited so you might not be able to do everything you want. I was just making the main M32 control a few DCA faders on the second M32.

      I have never tried this for actually usage but I am pretty sure if you were to be close enough or use a Midi extender if you just hook up the 2 consoles to each other thru the Midi inputs and outputs then every move (that Midi is enabled to do) should echo to the other console. But that is asking for trouble. You might have an endless loop between the 2 consoles kind of like an audio feedback loop. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean that you should. SO DON’T DO THAT!!!

    Hi,

    it would be handy to get the option to change the order of the inserts on the console.

    Easy like drag en drop it in the way you want, so you can try out different insert structures.

    Hey all.
    We've been playing with a HD96-24 and it looks almost perfect for our needs, however I have two little observations and was wondering if anyone knows if such things might be adressed in a future update.

    1.
    MIDI control.
    We cover live sports events, and on our current setup we use a little GPIO to MIDI box so that when the vision mixer cuts to a certain camera, the channel for the relevant microphone is automatically unmuted.
    For example, when the director cuts to the team manager, the camera-mounted microphone is automatically opened.

    Currently on the HD96, MIDI control only allows recalling scenes, and not any other function. Whilst we could theoretically bodge something so that a certain scene is recalled, it's less than elegant, and could prove problematic since we use scene/memory recall for other functions.

    Is there any update in the pipeline that might enable more functions to be triggered via MIDI?

    2.
    One of the things we use scene/memory recall for is to change the state of various sends and master bus on/off for different sections of our shows. We have coverage in multiple languages, and need to tie in and merge different presenters and commentators to chat among each other to give a complete overview and introduction, before separating off into their own separate coverage.

    The scene recall safe on the HD96 currently links the fader with the master bus on/off, so I can't recall the state for one without affecting the other.

    Again, is there any idea on an update that might allow seperate recall safe of fader and master bus send?

        Nigel67 Hi SionJones. At the moment there is not anything specific in the pipeline that would cover the two questions that you have made, but the Design Team are very interested in understanding your requirements and discussing any enhancements that could be made to the HD96. I am going to send you an e-mail today. If it is not in your inbox by the end of today, please also check your spam and junk folder. Many thanks

      KevinMaxwell Have you tried hooking up a computer (with a Midi Interface) to the Midi output port and using a program like Midi-OX and moving faders and pushing buttons to see if the Mixer is outputting Midi for anything? Some times there are somethings enabled that have not been made public yet and even sometimes hardly anyone in the company is aware of that. But it can be dangerous to rely on it to continue working if someone put it in there without it being known. It may get disabled in the next firmware.

      I wanted to clarify what I was referring to. If you have what is firmware that a developer was playing around with something and it isn't documented you may not be able to rely on it not being changed without notice. If it is a documented feature then it shouldn't just disappear. I have hidden things in software I was developing that unless you knew where to look for them you would never find them. But they may be things that will not make it to the final release.

    Does anyone know if the Midas m32r has a Testing mode?     Think of an SC48 with its test mode.

      KevinMaxwell Years ago we thought we had something wrong with one of the M32 mixers that we had and support told us a key combination to press to put it into a self test mode. I don't remember what the key combination was but I will see If I can find out for you. and then see if it works with the current firmware.
      • Aug 3
    • Cblair819
      KevinMaxwell Well the fellow I work with that owns the 2 Midas M32 mixers that I have regularly used found the Key combination to put the M32 (I assume that it should work on the X32 also) into the Surface Test mode. It is - with the mixer off press and hold the Home, Meters, Routing and Setup buttons all at the same time and turn on the power while holding them. Let them go when you see the mixer start in the test mode. I am not 100 percent sure how you are SUPPOSED to get out of it but turning it off and then on again it comes back on like it should.

    Hi there, 

    So we have 3 HD's in a Broadcast environtment and using automixer in AFL insert and SOLO config on PFL. I was expecting to have SOLO PFL but the insert of this automixer in AFL is causing SOLO following AFL too. Is that normal behaviour? Do other consoles work that way?

    Best regards,

    roger

    I am using the MAir app on my iPad and I am wondering if it is possible to adjust effects independently between monitors and mains. Right now, when I turn reverb up in mains it turns it up in monitors as well.

      Paul_Vannatto Change the FX Return sends tap from post fader to pre-fade (or any of the other pre fader taps)

    • dschutt23
      KyleJohnson Hello, Kyle here with Music Tribe. When looking at the software you should see you have FX Sends and FX Returns. If you raise the FX Sends it will raise the FX everywhere they are sent. If you raise the FX Returns in the Main mix it should only affect the main mix, and you can use the sends on fader mode to raise the FX Returns to the Busses. The FX Returns should be Green channels labeled FX 1 R, FX 1 L etc.

    Hello.

    I bought this MR18 from December 2021. It's unstable.

    It's mean at switch on gain is +27db , sound is good then switch off and again at switch on gain is +27db , sound is low !!
    Also FX faders one time -15db are good. Next time switch on FX are not good at -15db but FX at 0db are good !!

    Sometimes I have no signal at all.
    Sometimes the signal is very weak and cannot be heard at the output.

    Sometimes the volume gain is high, sometimes the volume gain is low, no matter how much I increase it, it is still useless
    I also did a factory reset, but it was useless
    There is no difference between any of the inputs, microphone, aux, there is no difference
    As I said, sometimes there is no signal at all.

    The supply of parts is not my problem, it is your problem and you should fix the problem. Otherwise, I will file a legal complaint against you.
    My MR18 has 3 years warranty, so I will come to Dubai next week. Please take my device back and give me a new one.

        I mentioned my MR18 problem to the prolab store and also email [email protected]
        But still none of them gave me any correct answer about which country and which store and to which person I should return the mixer.

    I have a single fader that has stopped moving when changing pages or fader flipping. The fader still works. The console still registers the movement when I manually move it up and down but it won't budge when changing which causes tons of problems. Any idea what could be the cause of it?

      KevinMaxwell It sounds like the belt slipped off of the positioning motor. Do you know if there was a time when the fader wanted to move to a different position (like when switching layers) and there was something in the way and the motor may have fought to make the change. I think that can cause a belt to slip off or for the motor to have a problem.

      There are some mixers that will fight to get the fader where it is supposed to be and other mixers that if something is in the way it will interpret that as the new position it needs to be in and not fight it.

      MarkNorgren FWIW, I just ordered a replacement fader from Sweetwater for mine. I was told a 4-5 month wait! I would check the belt as well.

      Thanks for the replies. It randomly started working again. Which makes me worry more because now I'm not sure why it stopped and why it started back...

      • M32 Fader not automatically moving
        KevinMaxwell Strictly a guess but maybe the fader belt slipped just enough that is got lodged on the rim of one of the pulleys and then it slipped back down eventually when the fader was manipulated. How did the fader feel (when it wasn't working correctly) compared to the other faders when you moved it? Was it WAY smoother (no resistance at all) or was there a slight stiffness to it?

    Can I use the behringer stage boxes for the MIDAS 32R? With the scarcity of Midas stegeboxes is there any other alternative instead of buying a 100ft snake? Thanks

      Paul_Vannatto Yes you can use the Behringer stageboxes (S16, S32, SD8, SD16) with the M32.
