    Hi folks, I have an X32 rack (which doesn't have the XLR AES/EBU connector on back panel), and hoping to connect digitally to a DCX2496.

    How can I connect from the AES50 Ethercon connector on the X32 Rack to the AES/EBU XLR on the DCX2496?

      RexBeckett Hi gilcarter, I think you would need to use an S32 stagebox which has two AES/EBU outputs. It would be an expensive solution unless you had a need for the extra analogue I/O.

    Hello, I am helping out a local church with their stream setup and I am getting a buzzing noise when i select the X-card in stream labs as the source. Currently they have mix bus 3 and 4 xlr to 3.5mm into their computer which sounds horrible. I also update the firmware from 2.33 to 4.06. Can anyone look at the sence and tell me if I have the routing wrong?

    Been banging my head on my desk TRYING to get this to work.
    I gave up :-(
    I am now reaching out to you . . .

    Here is what I am trying to do.

    Play music on the internet Using my mixer

    Control volume of music
    Control volume of XLR Microphone
    Kinda like a radio station, 

    we hear the DJ talking....he plays music....he talks as the music is playing

    The Music is coming from my PC
    I do not want to hold a microphone near a speaker, that would sound horrible. 

    Gosh is hard for me to express what I am trying to do,  but hope you understand.

    Problem : I don't appear to be able to record a full 'waveform'. Recordings are clipping much earlier than it should when using the Behringer Audio interface


    info: I have an Audio Tehnica 2020 mic going into a U-Phoria UMC204HD going straight into my PC via USB, and into Audacity.

     

    When I was recording my waveforms weren't that large (or loud). I therefore decided to see what the maximum levels i could record to see how much headroom i was able to play with

    Test1 - Mic levels at 100% on the Behringer: PC record level at 100%, shouting into mic (maxed out/ hot/distortion to be expected)

    Result: Clipping and distortion occours at the 50% mark on the waveform - Image 1

    This makes me wonder my clipping wasn't happening at a much louder level? Should it not clip when the waveform is fatter/louder

    This makes me wonder why when I record normally, things are quiet. I don't appear to have the full headroom to play with. as clipping happens much sooner than expected.

     

    Test2 - used my BOSE headphone microphone, NOT going through the Uphoria, straight into Audacity - image 2

    Here I seem to have a much bigger dynamic range as the waveform is fatter and almost to the full.

    As this test was not going through my Behringer I am wondering if that is the problem

     

    The Behringer is only a couple of months old, and hardly used. Could anyone give me some ideas for further testing? or options, or could the Behringer be faulty

      RexBeckett Hi kuztardd, the recording level in the UMC204HD driver may be set to less than 100% so the signal is being attenuated. You can adjust this through Windows Control Panel -> Sound -> Recording -> UMC204HD -> Properties -> Levels.

      You can also adjust the same level control through Audacity as long as the UMC204HD is selected as recording input. See attached screenshot. If you do not see the recording and playback faders, open View -> Toolbars and enable Mixer Toolbar.

      kuztardd HI rex thanks for taking the time to reply.
      MY settings there (and on the slider on Audacity are set to 100. So feel like the its Audio interface is limiting my output by 0.6db as my audacity records my bluetooth bose fully and that doesnt go via the Behringer?
      do you have any suggestions of any testing i can do before i think about doing a warranty swap with Behringer should i consider it faulty?
      • June 23, 2021
      • Why does my Behringer output at a quiet level?
        RexBeckett I know that the UMC204HD normally can output a full-scale USB recording level. If you want to be sure that your unit is defective, you could test with different sources and another PC. I have found that some issues are solved by disabling all enhancements on the Advanced or Enhancement tabs of the device properties.

        Other than that, I suggest a warranty return to either your supplier (if purchased less than 30 days ago) or through the Support menu at the top of this screen.

      Hey I found the fault! I installed my Behringer on another pc along with Audacity and noted that on the fresh PC that I could get full waveforms. The only difference I noted was that my pc 'Audio Host' was set to the default of MMC
      and the other pc was set to WINDOWS WASAPI

      It explains why the sound has always sounded pretty cack too. You can hear the difference here: https://youtu.be/NQ0uEC9zfME

    Morning,

     

    Hope someone can shed some light on this as im not sure where to turn now and dont want to throw the towel in quite yet as its only been a couple days of having it.

    I seem to have strange interference sounding noise which is pretty loud which i can hear on recordings as well as during direct monitoring.

    ive made a recording of it, as its easier to hear than try and explain.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QqXqZ55PWo

     

    Now im an audio and interface novice too.

    checked the USB voltage was correct and getting 5V.

    using the supplied C1 mic ,on 202HD Input 1 Gain set roughly at 60%

    tried both inputs.

    tried using another Mic, tried swapping out XLR cable.

    tried testing using the direct monitor when interface isnt connected to PC and moved to another room, so just mic/headphones/interface away from any electrical device or radio signal (everyone was out and switched power off to house and powered by external battery)

     

    Any thoughts or what else i could try, if im maybe missing something would be appreciated, since it if wasnt for that noise, it does sound really clear and soo much more responsive than my USB mics.

     

    Regards

    Darren

      Nigel67 Hi OboShape. I think that you have a faulty on your UMC202HD. The noise floor should just be a hiss, not have a crackling type sound in it. If you have only had the UMC connected to your computer, no mic cables no 48 volts switched on and can still hear the noise on the headphones, then you have a faulty unit. You mentioned you have tried different USB sources as well, so we can rule out the power source. If the unit is under 30 days old, then I would advise contacting the shop that you purchased the system from and ask for a DOA replacement. If it is over 30 days, then please contact our Technical Team via our Community. 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. A colleague will then get back to you with further advice on getting your unit repaired. many thanks

      Hi Nigel, cheers for reading and responding, much appreciated.
      i cant hear the noise with just headphones.
      but all I have in is the Mic, Headphones and the Interface (powered either by PC USB or USB battery bank).
      Ive raised a ticket as well, but got a response saying it sounded like a ground loop, but i did say that I dont have anything else that is externally powered to cause the loop so see how that goes as well.

    Hi,

    I recently purchased a QX1222USB mixer to be used in a small church setting, which it is absolutely excellent for. The problem I've found however is that the output from the USB port, and also the phono (Red/White) outputs seem to have no volume control. But only the input signals are affected by the 2TR fader, and the main mix fader has no control over the outputs either. With the main mix faders all the way down, and the 2TR fader all the way down, I still get a full signal going into my laptop. I've tried various laptops and it's the same with all.

    When I contacted the retailer, I was told that he thought it was just a line level output without any control anyway, but to check with Behringer to see if that is the case, or if there is a workaround. Yet when I read the manual, it seems to suggest that the outputs for the USB and phono should be identical to the main mix.

    Does anyone have any ideas which is correct please? To be honest, I'm just not sure if I have a fault on the equipment, or if that's just how it is. Just seems a little strange that's all. Or am I being a complete idiot and missing something glaringly obvious?!

     

    Thanks,

    John

      Nigel67 Hi John. The 2 USB/2TR Return fader is for inputs, it has no effect on the outputs. The 2 Track Out phono jacks, the Main Out XLR outputs and the USB out should all follow the Main Mix faders. So, for example, if you are sending audio to input 1 and sending it to the main mix, when you push the main mix faders up, you are seeing the meters light up, and this signal will then be going to the 3 outputs that I mentioned above. The 2 TR fader is for the Return signal from the phono In or the USB audio return from your computer into the mixer. With the 2 Tr/USB return fader at the bottom of its travel, there should be no audio passing through it. If you return audio into the mixer from the computer on the usb, you should not see the Main Mix meters lighting until you have both the USB/2TR faders and Main Mix faders both raised from the bottom of their travel. I hope this explains the working of the 2 TR/USB fader - it is for returns externally into the mixer.

        JohnDunning Thanks for the reply Nigel. The way you describe it is precisely how I understood the mixer SHOULD work after reading the instructions, and from past experience with other mixers. The only thing being different is that while the main mix faders alter the volume levels being output from the XLR outputs, the phono outputs and USB output remains at full volume.

        I guess it must be a fault on the mixer then. Hey ho, back to GAK I go!

        Many thanks,
        John

      Interesting, not sure how that can happen. Must be wiring issue. Am intrigued to know what the actual fault is on that unit.

    Hi! I recently switched up our x32 configuration so we are sending a stereo pair of matrices out to our camera that then goes to our livestream. Before, we had a mono matrix being sent out. However, now the volume is way lower. Unfortunately, if I turn up the two matrices, the sound clips.

    Any suggestions? Do we have to remix for a stereo signal for our livestream? Hopefully not.

    Thanks!

    Hi! I had this idea the other day to route a single input, for example, the acoustic guitar for our Sunday worship gathering, to two different channels (i.e., separate fader controls). My rationale behind this was that then I could EQ a single source two different ways; one EQ setup for our in-house mix and one for our livestream mix. However, I'm not sure what limitations this brings up.

    For example, I already noticed that if the acoustic came in on input 1 and was sent to channel 1 and channel 7, sending channel 7 to an FX bus did not work; I had to send channel 1 to the FX, which defeats the purpose of my idea. 

    I hope this makes sense as it's hard to describe. Please be patient with me as I'm a novice with soundboards and mixing/mastering.

    Side note: I have seen a ton of videos explaining how to send a copy of an input source to a DAW, and then route it back into the soundboard to then be sent out to the live stream. However, we are a small church and have several open channels on our soundboard so if possible, it makes sense (in my limited experience) to do everything on the same soundboard.

    Thanks so much!

      RexBeckett Hi sgruber9, you can certainly feed two (or more) channels from the same input. There is no reason why they cannot both be sent to FX buses. Check that the FX bus sends are enabled on both channels (on the channel Sends tab).

      sgruber9 Thank you! I will double-check on this.

    Hi there, 

    I run a church and we're looking at the XR18 for one of our new plants (we currently use a X32).

    One of the features we'd love to be able to do is to record directly onto a Flash drive like we do from the X32.  It looks like the XR16 has this functionality but it seems like the XR18 has a USB type B.

    Please can someone let me know if I can still record directly to a flash drive with the XR18 (assuming I convert from type B to type A)?

     

    Many thanks

     

    Tom

      KyleJohnson Hello, Kyle here with Music Tribe. The USB Port on the XR18 and X18 can not be used to record to a flash drive. These USB ports are strictly 18/18 USB Interfaces to record using a Mac or PC. The XR16 and XR12 have USB flash drive recorder options.

      RupertHuntTaylor Hi Tom, I'm in exactly the same position, trying to set up a church sound system for a new venue, with 9 days to go! Did you figure out a way forward? I'm trying to chose between the XR16 and XR18, and the recording ease is a key thing. I think only the XR16 lets you record to a thumb drive, but from what I can find out it's also harder to interface with a Macbook because no USB-B. XR18 seems set up to record every channel rather than the Main mix, which is overkill for us. Do you know if it's possible to record wirelessly in the iPad or MacBook ap? Or over an ethernet connection direct to a MacBook?
