    Hi Folks,

    is it possible tochange between different snapshots by using a midicontroller such as a Akai LPD8? Could this be possible via the usb-port? I mean I connect the LPD directly with a usb cable to the XR18 USB-Port. Or do I need a computer to set up an connection to the XR18? As you can read between the lines I'm an absolute novice to all this. I appreciate every advice or help from you out there. 
    The goal is to send a MIDI Command from a controller to change the snapshot and to send a programchange command to my Drumbrain (Pearl MimicPro) simultaneously.

    All suggestions are welcome!!!!!!!

      Paul_Vannatto Snapshot loading is done using ProgramChange on channel 1, numbers 1-64 (for the 64 internal snapshots slots). You will also need to enable the USB RX (in the Setup, Audio/Midi screen).

    Greetings Tribers! Hoping one of you x32 experts can give me a hand...

    First off, yes, I have read another similar thread on this topic (where the x32 Rack was only for monitors), but I'm still struggling with this. Here is a quick synopsis of the problem:

    I use an x32 Rack on stage and mix from the audience with a computer running x32 Edit. I work with a bunch of bar bands, so this setup is more than big enough to drive the self powered FoH mains / subs, and a bunch of wired & wireless in-ears monitors (mostly Behringer P2 boxes in mono mode). I have one lead singer in one of the bands who loves to hear the same reverb effect I've applied to FoH on his in-ears monitors. I've gotten this to work on an X-Air 16, but when I try to do the same on the x32, absolutely no effects go to Mix Bus 1 aka In-Ears #1 which goes to OUT1 (in Behringer nomoclature) on the back of the mixer.

    I've included screen caps of both the Main LR sends (reverb working perfectly), and the Mix Bus 1 sends (Ian IEM), where no reverb is heard on the in-ears at all, despite having the exact same amount of FX send dialed in. Also included is the x32 Rack SCN file for this particular band - it is very basic, not even a DCA because the drummer uses a Yamaha EAD10 all-in-one drum mic-ing & processing solution.

    Happy to upload any additional screen caps or add any additional info, just let me know what. Many thanks in advance!!

      Paul_Vannatto Screenshots are pretty useless, since they don't show all the console settings. The attached scene file is what is needed. The reason the Ian IEM is not getting the FX (wet signal) is because you have not sent the FX returns to that bus. Switch to the Aux FX layer of channel strips and send the FX returns (eg. FX1 L, FX1 R, etc.) to the Ian IEM bus.

      Perfect, thank you... One thing that may have been confounding me is that I was playing with this in my storage area, and so the mains were nowhere near concert levels. Well, the Main L+R bus was at 0, but the channel volumes were set low to a domestic setting. I did not realize that the Main L+R bus channel 1 (Ian) level needed to be up into a normal performance range in order for the FX to also be sent to the Mix Bus 1 (Ian IEM), so I was wearing the IEM pack, wireless mic in hand, and had a nice loud vocal volume in the IEM, but the mains were at a whisper level, and I was getting no reverb effect at all in the IEM. If you have a moment, could you please clarify why the routing works that way... I'm assuming that this is the way it's supposed to work? I really appreciate the help, and so will Ian this coming Friday night.

      Paul_Vannatto No, it has nothing to do with the Main levels. That is not the reason why the Ian IEM bus is not getting the FX (wet signal). Please re-read my previous post. I explained it very clearly why it isn't happening and how to fix it.

      Grandon Hi ElSonadista. Here are some photos to help illustrate what Paul_Vannatto has already said. It seems you might not have understood his explanation. I hope these help.

    I run sound for 2 different bands using an XR-18.  Is there a way that I can save & recall different settings for each band?  Like the channel names, gain settings, etc?

    • Zuurg
      Paul_Vannatto Yes, save to snapshots and load those snapshots when you need them. The XR18 can store up to 64 snapshots internally. Using X-Air-Edit (for Windows, Mac, linux or Raspberry Pi), you can also export and import those snapshots to scene files on the computer.

    Had the XR18 working with my Macbook and DAW in the morning before a gig. Then, during setup later that night, it refused to be detecetd. Obviously this was very bad.

    Any ideas what could have changed?

    Running the latest of all of the following: Mac OS, Studio One 5, XR18 firmware,  XR Edit App.

      Nigel67 How were you connecting to the XR18, wireless or hard connection? If wireless, was it the XR18 internal wireless or do you have your own wireless router. If you were using the internal wireless, then I would advise that you set up your own dual band wireless router and use the 5GHz band. The XR18 uses the 2.4GHz band which is fine for band rehearsals, but as soon as you go into a venue, then this network becomes extremely congested as most mobile phones use this frequency. You may also find that if you haven't set up the security on your network, then the audience think its a free wifi network and start trying to connect to it. The 5GHz band is less used and you have many more channels to set up with. Is the connection now working again or still not working. Its possible that it has gone faulty. The first thing you should try is a factory reset. You will need to back up any show / presets that you have on the unit as they will be deleted.  With the unit powered, locate the hole in the front panel by the access point logo.  There is a switch behind the hole.  Push something through the hole gently until you feel a click as the switch activates.  Hold the switch in for 12 seconds and when you release, the unit will reset.  Set up the connection again and see if you can connect back up to the ethernet port. If that doesn't work I would advise submitting a Technical Support ticket. This can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Technical Support tab and submit a ticket.

    I'm wondering if the x-touch Compact or the x-touch Extender are stand-alone compatible with my x32 rack? By stand alone, I mean I can directly "plug" them into the x32 without needing an iPad / software or the x-touch universal control?

      NicJonesMT Hi there.
      The XT Extender isn't compatible as it does not have XCTL mode. It's is primarily designed to be used as an extender for DAW's.

      The Compact will work. You would need to connect it via MIDI, and then using the X-Touch Editor (Windows Only) Program in features you want to control. Please refer to the X32 manual for the full MIDI implementation.

    Hello,

    I'm using Mix Bus 5&6 (linked) to send audio to the XLR inputs of a Zoom Q8 camera.  I'd like to be able to apply the onboard reverb (FX1 Bus 13) to some of the vocal channels.  I tried setting the send on 5&6 for the channel to Post Fader and having the FX1 send set to Pre Fader, but the signal being sent to the camera is still dry.

    What am I doing wrong?

      Paul_Vannatto You don't want to send the FX sends signals (which are the dry pre-processed signals). You want to send the FX returns (on the Aux FX bank - eg. FX1L/FX1R, etc.)

    Hi!

    Looking help for outputting on all channels of the Behringer SD8 from a rack version of Behringer X32. Connection is done using AES50. All input work fine and just 2 channels (3 and 4!!!) for output.

    0 5
    • Manole
      Paul_Vannatto I think you are mixing terminology. Stageboxes (such as the SD8) don't have channels. They have inputs and outputs. Is the issue that you are getting only channels 3 and 4 (eg. Tom1 and Fl Tom) going out the Main LR, or are you only getting outputs out of the SD8 outputs 3 and 4?

      Problem (kind of) solved: output #1 started to work while the others stopped. Seems the group switch is defective and after a back and forth makes outputs behave erratically.

    Good morning,

    I am writing because I am in an unpleasant situation with your dealer.

    I explain the situation:

    In December 2019 I bought a Behringer X Air XR18 Mixer sold on amazon from a store.

    The product was fantastic and has worked great for a year.

    Unfortunately in May 2021 it started to have power issues which you can see documented in the following video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQBMvOwl494

    The seller was willing to repair so I sent the mixer back to the shop and after a few weeks it was back... theoretically repared ..

    That wasn't.

    The mixer was still damaged so I contacted the dealer again and sent the package back. After about a year the answer is always the same: "Behringer is not sending us the parts needed for repair and we cannot proceed with the refund because according to company policy, the refund is only possible if the product is irreparable, but this is repairable ".

    I wonder if the situation is really that bad for spare parts or if it is only this dealer who is giving you really bad publicity.

    As a worker in the sector I have always relied on your products and I hope to be able to continue to place my trust in the professionalism of your company so I ask you what I can do to solve this problem?

    Best regards.

      Nigel67 Hi RobertoMart. Please could you submit a Technical Support ticket and we will be able to investigate the matter further. Could you also include the serial number of the XR18 and a copy of the proof of purchase (invoice). I am sorry, but we do not have any visibility of when parts are in stock but a year is a very long time. Once we have your ticket, then we should be able to advise you further. If you went through us originally regarding the repair, please can you also advise the ticket number or the RMA repair number. To raise a Technical ticket, this can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Technical Support tab and submit a ticket. Many thanks

    Hello, we need to connect a PC to an X32 Rack more than 3m away.  Are there known Cat5-based USB 2.0 extenders that will work with the X32 Rack?  Or do you have another recommended USB extender technology and brand?

    • pastorian
      PedroRodrigues Hi pastorian, thank you for your post, in your case for a USB 2.0 (480 Mb/s) connection set up I would suggest using a USB 2.0 cable with a max length of less than 5 m (16 ft.) to allow a stable communication between your X32 RACK and your computer.
      For longer distances there is in fact the option of a USB over Cat5/Cat6 extender, that converts the USB signal into Ethernet, transmits it over regular category cable, and converts it back to USB on the far end. Most USB extenders can transmit data up to 164 feet without signal loss.
      Nevertheless I have never attempt to use this type of USB over Cat5/Cat6 extender to connect a X32 RACK to a Computer so I cannot confirm if it will work or not.

    Hi,

    I am working with a system that was setup by someone who is no longer available.  I would like some assistance routing a MixBus 4 to Aux Out 5/6 rca jacks for streaming via a pc.  Under routing and the Aux Output tab, I see the six balanced outputs and I'm hoping that the AES/EBU L&R are those outputs.  I have attached a screenshot of the routing.  Can you please verify that this is done correctly.  If there is an easier way please let me know.

    Thanks for your help.

      Paul_Vannatto No the RCA jacks are hardwired with the 1/4" jacks (Aux Out 5/6). So you would assign Mixbus 4 to Aux Out 5 and 6. You do realize that all mixbuses are mono in nature. If you are wanting stereo output, you would need to stereo link two adjacent mixbuses (in odd/even pairs - eg. mixbus 3/4), then assign the odd mixbus to Aux Out 5 and the even mixbus to Aux Out 6.
