    Hello,

    What's the best Youtube video to get my new Behringer Air XR 18 set up with my ipad?

    I am running a Behringer X32 at our church. We have a bus that controls our sub-woofer. The only problem is that when we turn everything down with the L/R main channel the sub is still pumping out low end. Is there a way I can link my sub bus to my master L/R so that everything is controlled by that one fader?

      Paul Vannatto Hi Chris, currently the only thing that can be linked to the LR is the mono (M/C) bus, by selecting the "M/C depends on Main LR" setting on the Setup, Config screen. If you use the Main M/C for your sub. This will be the solution. Typically we don't adjust the Main LR, but fade the various channels either using the channel strip fader(s) or via DCA.

    Good Afternoon to all,

    I wonder if there is any official literature, manual, quick start guide, detailed presentation or video tutorials for Herritage-D? Can somebody send me a link or give a date that anything of these would be available?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Forgive me, I just unboxed the XR12 and it seems there's no way to use it as a source for Zoom calls.  I've got an Atem Mini Pro and a Windows 10 Computer and I just want Zoom to see the XR12 as an audio source.  Is this possible or should I box it up and return it to Amazon?

      Rex Beckett Hi Paul, the USB socket on the XR12 (and XR16) can only be used to record and play stereo wav files to/from a USB stick. You would need an XR18 to get a multichannel USB connection to a PC.

      Alternatively you could use an additional USB interface to connect analogue outp.uts from the XR12 to a PC.

      The recently announced Behringer Flow 8 mixer may be a good alternative once it starts shipping.

      Paul Walhus OK so it's "plug and play" and with the XR18 I would just run a usb cable to the Windows 10 box (install whatever drivers) and Zoom would see the XR18 as a device? 18 channels is way more than I need though, is there a more basic solution that would have way fewer channels?

      • Can the Behringer XR12 be used as a usb source for zoom calls
        Rex Beckett Yes Windows supports the XR18 through specific drivers. Although the XR18 supports eighteen bi-directional USB channels, Windows only supports them all through an ASIO interface. Most DAW software supports ASIO but Zoom does not so would treat the XR18 as a stereo device.

        There are several other possible solutions depending on what facilities you want. For simple mic and/or instrument connections for use with Zoom, the Behringer UMC204HD works well.

      Dave Morrison As Rex mentioned, you can connect via USB: however, an analog connection to your ATEM mini pro is a great solution. I do that with my X32 (because the USB interface is used for other purposes).

      Paul Walhus So I sent the XR12 back and I'm getting an XR18 in it's place as well as a BEHRINGER Audio Interface (UMC404HD). What are the pros and cons of having Windows treat the XR18 as a stereo device? Can you explain for a novice like me what this means in more basic terms "Although the XR18 supports eighteen bi-directional USB channels, Windows only supports them all through an ASIO interface. Most DAW software supports ASIO but Zoom does not so would treat the XR18 as a stereo device."

    I'm using M/C (Mono Channel) for the subwoofer.

    How do you assign the OUTPUT of the M/C to the physical XLR OUT in the back of my X32RACK so I can connect to my Sub woofer amp? (Would like to use #6 as its next to the LR outs)

      Dave Morrison The instructions depend on firmware version and whether you do it at the console or using X32_Edit because the labels vary by version. If your Routing:XLR tab is set at default (Out 1-8, 9-16), then go to the Routing:Out (or Out 1-16) tab. Set (the source) MC to be Output 6.

        Christer Hiort Thanks ! As I noted below it was easier to see it on the iPad.

    • Christer Hiort
      Christer Hiort SOLVED: I could not see how to do this in X32-EDIT but on the iPad it is much easier to see it in the routing section.

    How would you set up the compression on this channel for speaking voice that sometimes get pretty loud?

    i dont really understand how this one work (picture)

    • Christer Hiort
      Dave Morrison The two basic controls you should focus on are Threshold and Ratio. How you set them depends on what you're doing. You could maybe set the Threshold at -20 with a ratio of 2 for some gentle compression during the louder moments. The threshold controls the level where the compressor starts to work. The graph will give you an idea how it works. If you want the clamp down just the loudest section, you could run it more like a limiter. Try the threshold at -10 and the ration at 6 (or more). Be aware that compression in floor monitors can increase the risk of feedback ( it's less likely when your just limiting with the threshold set to -10 or -5). Use the Gain control to "make up" the gain you lose when the compressor is on (ie. make them the same when it "Active" and then bypassed)

      KevinMaxwell A loud speaking voice isn’t really a problem at all unless they are distorting the input. If someone is speaking loud you can just turn down the channel or turn down the trim.

      There were some events that I have done where I always had a finger on the channel (fader) of the persons speaking. Actually that was most events because they were high enough profile that it had to be perfect or as close to perfect as is humanly possible. And I usually had a compressor on that vocal subgroup to even out the vocal mics and it was a DBX160 usually set to a 3:1 compression ratio. I would strongly suggest that on the X32 in the channel compressor under the gain envelope (on the page that you included) that you select “Auto Time”. This automatically sets the attack, release and hold times to settings that work better for most things that you want to compress, unless you are looking for some other compression behavior then what I consider normal.

      The challenge is if you have a person that is speaking inconsistently. If they go from a whisper to shouting that can be challenging. That style of speaking is usually what the fiery preacher might do and the challenge there is they really want to hear themselves get REALLY LOUD. One way to deal with that if the preacher isn’t a pain about it is to use the channel compressor at about 4:1 and set the threshold to where it is working a little bit all of the time. And set the knee to 5, this makes the point at which the compressor is actually triggering to be smoother and not too sudden.

      The use a second compressor to be closer to limiting that is set to keep the really loud parts under control. You can do that by either inserting another compressor on that channel or send that channel to a Mix Bus (and route that Mix Bus to the L/R and make sure the channel isn’t going directly to the L/R) and use the Mix Bus compressor to a more aggressive compression ratio like 10:1 and set the threshold on that to only trigger when the preacher gets really loud. I actually never use the L/R as my output to the house speakers I always use a Matrix outputs. Usually because I have more speakers in the system then just Left and Right. But even if I am using just Left and Right speakers I still use the Matrix outs.

    Can I change how channels are shown on the iPad in the X32 Software?

    I.e, can the first channels on the view be e.g MixBus1 MixBus2 Ch1 Ch2 Ch3. etc ....

    I want to connect a laptop to play music over the system.

    How do I route these AUX inputs as input for Channel 1 so we can control the volume out to the FOH ?

    (The reason I want it to channel 1 is so the sound person can have it on the fist page on the iPad)

      Paul Vannatto Assign Aux 5 to channel 1 strip source and Aux 6 to channel 2 strip source. Of course if you change to Mixing Station, you won't have to do this.

      • X32 - Routing AUX in (RCA connections to Channel Strip)
        Paul Vannatto Mixing Station is a 3rd party app that have been used by many of us since 2013 on our android tablet. About a year ago, the developer ported it to the iPad/iPhone (as well as PC and Mac). It is far superior in functionality and features from the official app.

      - mjk - Also, note that anything plugged into the 6.5mm TRS jack will break the connection to the RCA I/O jacks. I was hoping I could plug 2 source/destination devices into channels 5 and 6, but it's either/or.

      • X32 - Routing AUX in (RCA connections to Channel Strip)
        Christer Hiort I suspected that, so if 5-6 RCA is used , 5-6 TRS can not be used and vice versa.

      • X32 - Routing AUX in (RCA connections to Channel Strip)
        - mjk - Right. I don't know if it helps, but, if you leave the RCA plugs in the jacks, they get cut off by the 6.5mm TRS switching jack as soon as you insert a cable. You don't have to actually remove them. But in order to get the RCA jacks to activate, you do have to remove the TRS plugs.

    I must admit that I'm puzzled that there has been no mention of the release of a new firmware for the X32 ecosystem in this area. I *think* that it was released on the 17th and this is precisely where I would expect to see the announcement but ...

    Also, I believe that there is a new X32-Edit version, 4.2, although whether or not it is new I can't really tell since that sort of thing doesn't seem to rate mentioning here (and I lurk here every day). All I know is that I was running the previous version and have now upgraded to the latest.

    Finding the software on the Behringer site is potentially tricky since there are two ways to go. If you navigate to the X32 product page you can either click the Downloads button at the top (which is what I tried because ... that's how everyone else on the planet does it) or on the right side of the page there is a software link. The software link is where to find everything, *not* the Downloads button. I don't know what the Behringer web programmers have been smoking but it must be pretty wild and crazy stuff. But then I guess we all knew that since the introduction of the new and improved forum. ;)

      Paul Vannatto Hi Keith, yes the new firmware (4.04) and Edit (4.2) were released this week for both X32 and M32. You are correct that the best way to download these updates is by selecting them from the Software side panel, rather than the (older method of) Download.

      The one big thing they added to both is the DCA spill feature. In the Edit, it is the last item in the Utility dropdown.
      • Nov 22
    • Keith Brown
      Keith Brown Yes. I have yet to try the DCA spill feature but it looks interesting and potentially a useful new feature.

      RuneHagen I tried this firmware and when i tried to use the buttons for busses 1-16 on my X-Touch it hanged my X32-rack. Connection lost from both X-Touch and X32-Edit. had to turn the mixer off and on to get it up and running again. Tried different settings, XCTL, XTCL+MCU and XTCL+HUI but same result. I downgraded to 4.03 and now it is working fine again.

        Paul Vannatto Thanks for reporting this issue. I don't have an X-Touch, so can't verify, but have logged it on the beta-tester's site.

        Paul Vannatto You are most welcome to do so. It will eventually be forwarded to the beta-testing team.

        KlausMock Hmm, I recently tested it on my system (X32 Rack, X-Touch and X32-Edit) and cannot reproduce it. I am running all three components on the same switch and do not use DHCP for X32 and X-Touch.

    I have the X32 Rack new for the church.

    Im now trying to set it up for my rather simple setup but I want to make notes as I do ir for busses and sub groups.

    Anyone have a routing sheet template that they use that they care to share ?

    Thanks
