    Do the line inputs (ch17 and 18) pass thru the pro midas preamps? 

    I would like to connect and record digitally with an external preamp without going thru two preamps to my DAW.

      Paul_Vannatto That is correct. Only mic inputs go through "mic" preamps. But if you need to stay in the digital realm, you need to connect the MR18 to the DAW (computer) using the USB. That is because the line inputs do go through an analog to digital converter.

      Thank you for confirming that! I love the Pro Midas pres, but also like using an external pre for certain applications without running through two preamps which can have unpredictable not so good results.

    Hi musictribes,

     

    is there a knwon issue with the compatibility of the MIDAS M32R connected via the Klark Teknik dn32 USB Interface to a MacBook with the latest M1 Chip? On my 2015 MacBook everything was fine, but with the new one, using the M1 Pro Chip it's just horrible. There is a crackle noise every second, sounding like to small buffersizes, but none of the configuration in my software (Reaper) can fix the issue. It's even crackling when playing music directly from the system wihtout opening Reaper. I've made the firmware update, but no improvement. Can anybody help me with that, please?

    best, Sebastian

      Paul_Vannatto I would suspect either a bad USB cable, you are running through a USB hub or converter, or you have the USB cable plugged into a USB 3 port on the M1 MacBook.

      Thank you Paul for the fast feedback. It's an interesting idea that i could check. Do you have a recommendation for a working adapter? btw.: this adapter works fine with my RME Babyface Pro, but may that's another story.

    Hello. I recently bought a Midas mr18. I'm not very good at sound, so I want to ask for help here. If anyone wants to help me with a complete preset for a channel (voice), or a preset with the most used effects when playing. Thank you

    I've got a show tomorrow with a tiny changeover so I want to be 100% sure I get this right. I have manually set the (linked) bus 11/12 and 13/14 to subgroup, turned off every channel I don't want to go to said subgroup, I think turned on the channels I do want to go to the subgroup, send subgroup to LR, cut said channels out of the LR, am I good to go? Or should I really manually set EVERY channel to subgroup? Now I'm asking anyway, that's the point of setting this per channel.. If I want bus 11/12 to be a subgroup, I want it to be a subgroup for every channel, right? Lastly, panning in the LR is copied to the linked subgroup I assume?

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Tom, not quite right, if I'm understanding what you want to accomplish. Typical subgroup setup is for the desired channels to that subgroup are not sent directly to the Main LR. Instead they are sent to the subgroup for group processing. Then the subgroup output is sent to the Main LR. The on/off buttons you are seeing are for the channel sends to that subgroup. To disable the channels going directly to the Main LR, you have to do that on the channel's Main screen (disable LR). Also make sure that the subgroup buses (11/12 and 13/14) Main LR are enabled.

      Yes, panning on the channel's pan will reflect in the subgroup.

        TomDoeven I got that, in this case channels 17 to 21 are disabled on the LR, and bus 11/12 is going to the LR. The question is if right now channels 17 to 21 are going to the subgroup, and all other channels can't go to the subgroup
        • Jan 25
    • TomDoeven
      Paul_Vannatto With respect to your screenshot, that is correct (assuming that channels 28-39 and Aux 1-6 are also off).

    Hello, I would like to know, if after the release of the behringer wing, the m32r is going to improve the engine, so that the processors work on each channel, for example, I love the wing, but I would love the size and physical inputs of the m32r

    I am trying to route a signal out of a local XLR out off a buss and no matter what XLR out I plug into, I get a tremendous amount of white/pink noise on the other end. At first I thought perhaps I had the oscillator on, but I do not. Muting all inputs/channels, busses etc doesn't change anything. Also, there is NO signal from the bus I am routing out of.

    My use case:

    Lavalier mic with signal sent to Bus 16. XLR out 13 is configured to send the signal from Bus 16 out to a video camera. (We video record a Pastor's messages and take the out from the lav mic on the M32 into the XLR input of the camera)

      KevinMaxwell How are you monitoring that you hear the hiss? Are you listening to the headphone output on the video camera? Is the camera input set to mic or line? Have you tried playing back something like an MP3 payer routed this same path to the camera? If yes how does the playback sound? Do you have another XLR output on the M32 available to try and use that, 12 or under?
      • Jan 20

      Paul_Vannatto What physical output (on the back of the M32) are you using to feed the camera? Once that is established, have a look at the Routing, XLR Out screen to determine what is assigned. Then have a look at the appropriate Routing staging screen (eg Out 1-16) to see what individual output is assigned to the respective physical output.

      The easiest way to troubleshoot this is to save the M32 settings to a scene, export the scene (Using the Utility button) to a USB stick, transfer it to a computer, save it to the cloud (eg dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) and provide a shareable link in you next post. That way we can have a look and better advise.

    I know this console was always explained as allowing 8ch over Mackie HUI, but in the recent years I've heard of people using OSC and perhaps other protocols (MIDI CC?) to unlock significantly more of the X32/M32.

    Today, is anyone aware of a means to have my M32 control Studio One (faders, pans, mute, solo) bidirectionally?

    I love this console, but is primary use in my studio is:

    1.  Playing music from my iPod to the studio monitors.

    2.  Acting as a giant AD / DA converter for my outboard gear.

    3.  Providing extra preamps for drum tracking.

    It's great for those tasks, but otherwise, it's somewhat sad that the console can't do more for me.  I guess I bought it more for the "studio" and less the "live" setting.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Zach, yes you can use OSC and/or midi to fully integrate the M32 with a DAW (depending on the capabilities of the DAW of course). Since Reaper is fully OSC compatible, Patrick has developed an excellent tool called X32ReaperAutoMate found here:
      https://x32ram.com/
      I'm not sure if Studio One is OSC compatible. If not, you could use the X32 Midi implementation. A summary can be found here:
      https://behringer.world/wiki/doku.php?id=x32_midi_table
      Another solution is Patrick's X32Commander app, which converts between OSC and midi. This can be found here:

      ZachChill I was able to get m32 to send values for fader and mute, but could not get ur working the other way around. Patrick has a midi2osc that I'll try tomorrow. One thing I noticed was that Solo doesn't work. I'm assuming that's not supported in Midi?
      • Jan 19
    • ZachChill
      Paul_Vannatto The M32 midi implementation is very limited. To get full access, you need to use OSC (its mother tongue).

      I got faders and mutes (and mute groups) working in Studio One w/M32. This should do what I need and if Presonus implements OSC, I will gain more functionality. Thanks for the assistance.

    My church has a Midas M32 connected to a DL32 stage box via AES50A with the HUB4 (with 4 DP48s connected) connected via AES50B.  While the AES50A routing works great, I'm finding the routing for AES50B defaults back to the factory default even on saved scenes (with no recall safes enabled).  Nearly every time I power-on the board and recall a saved scene, I need to reset the routing on the AES50B tab.

    Has anyone else experienced this...is there something I need to do to ensure this routing stays intact?

      Paul_Vannatto Check to make sure there are no safes enabled that would inhibit the AES50 B routing when loading the scenes. I can assure you that both A and B AES50 routing are saved in scenes. If you want to verify that, export your scene to a file and look at it with a text editor. Line 20 will be the AES50 B settings.

      Can either of you explain to me how to route AES50B for sending audio to my DN9650? I'm receiving audio through AES50A from my DL251 stage box, but not sure if I've got AES50B patched correctly to DN9650.

    Hello!

    does anyone know if there is good practice rules to avoid the M32 OSC overflow described here (https://trello.com/c/bY9eKgR2)?

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but softwares like M32Edit or davidgiga1993's Mixing station on Android do use OSC protocol?

    So if i'm correct, those softwares make a safe use of OSC communication, at least a use that avoids this bug. Because they can run for days without crashing the M32R.

    So if anyone has ideas about those good practice rules, they are welcome.

    Background of my question: I am developing a surround algorithm that send OSC messages to a M32R (v4.06) in order to dynamically change busses sends level of several tracks (to several busses). This is dynamic surround, so the sends level change continuously. That means a lot of OSC messages, about 1000 messages/second. During my stress tests my M32R freezes about every 10 minutes. Even if I change the update rate to 500 messages/second. I have checked that the ethernet bandwidth used by my surround application is nearly the same as when M32edit runs, so this does not seem to be exagerate.

    I have tried to be the as safe as possible. I use a direct cat5e cable from my computer to the M32R. No switch/router/wifi, only one câble.

    Thanks a lot

      Paul_Vannatto M32-Edit, Mixing Station and other 3rd party apps don't send near that many messages per second. They would only send changes to the console when the user makes changes (maybe 1-5 per second at most). For retrieving current state, they use the subscribe command (must be refreshed at least every 10 seconds) which tells the console to send the requested data of any changes constantly (see Patrick's X32 OSC Protocol document for details). For retrieving meter movement, they would use the respective /meter command and then decode the blob data sent from the console. Another thing that we have learned is to add a short delay (5-15 ms) between commands sent.
