    What does 'Cable Red' refer to in the drop down menu for DL stageboxes in the Pro series Config tab?

      Dale_M Hi there, it simply means "redundant" (back up)

      DamienKyle Thought as much, thanks Dale. Why isn’t ‘C’ on the DL251 labelled Cable Red? I’m assuming ‘A’ = ch. 1-24 + outs 1-16, B= ch. 25-48?

        DavidKnighton probably because a DL251 has 3 ports, and users might consider port B to be Cable Red by mistake. Most if not all stageboxes that only offer up to 24 channels will only have a single port and a redundant port, 2 ports in total, so it's far less likely users will make a mistake when configuring their system with those stageboxes. I believe DL351, which has 4 ports, is similarly labelled as the DL251.

    1. Is the only way to rename Group Names is via saving a .csv file as "names.csv" onto an sd card and then importing into the DP48

    2. How do I reset the Group Names on the DP48 to their default if I want to revert my group name changes?

      Paul_Vannatto 1. The only other option at this point is to name the groups from the X32 Library, AES50 screen.
      2. You could create a names.csv file with Group1,Group2,Group3, (etc.) or whatever the default names were. I haven't seen those default name in over 2 years (so don't remember).

      • How to reset DP48 Group Names
        dallaskruse I'll be using the DP48s with different groups so I was hoping to be able to rename the Groups easily.

      Paul_Vannatto What I've been doing is to setup preset files for each band, including the group names, then saving them to the 12 internal storage areas and/or to the 12 presets on the SD Card. I also store them on my laptop using folders for each of the bands.

      2 years ago (Aug 16, 2019) I did sound for a Woodstock 50th anniversary festival where I had to get 5 tribute bands and one local band through in 9 hours and used the 4 DP48 for their monitors. Since these were still beta (weren't released for sale until December), I had 20 minutes (or less) to make the changeover and teach the musicians how to use the DP48. Everyone loved them. The success was due to the stored presets for each of the bands.

      Paul_Vannatto I had also started to develop an offline DP48 preset editor, but gave up because these files also include a checksum and my checksum generator routine never came up with the same checksum the DP48 was expecting.

    The mixer is hooked up to a Benhinger snake which keepa going on safety. We checked the snake at the audio store and they said the mixer is causing the issue. It'll make a pop sound and everything will stop making sound, nothing turns off though. Then the sound comes back on for about 3seconds to 1minute before it repeats. Any idea what it can be? Everybody suspects a board maybe bad or loose but if its software or if the parts aren't sold they said they will not touch it. Help thanks.

      Paul_Vannatto First suspect is the AES50 cable. Is it shielded cat5e, 6 or 7 with ethercon ends? If so, check continuity (with a multimeter) between ethercon ends. If there is no continuity, find the break and repair, or replace the cable.
      • Aug 21

      GaryHiggins As Paul said, cable is the major suspect. The condition you describe is classic aes50 ESD related. Just to quickly check some broken data wire and/or other physical cable problem exists, any cat5/6/7 will work for temporary purposes. The issue with ESD should not show up unless very dry conditions exist. Or the broken wire issue. You WILL need everything Paul said eventually though, but just for a quick double check, any good cable will work. Hope replacing a cable (the correct way) is that simple of a fix for you!

    Hi there

    I love my MR18 mixer / interface - what is the future of this lineup?  Looks like maybe it is near the end of its product cycle and maybe something else is in development?  Would love to see an "MR32" and see it go to the next level.  Maybe with 16 combi jack mic pres and make it expandible to another 16 with a stage box.  I could see this being a great solution for small studios that want the flexibility to take the rig mobile to record live shows.

    Hi all!

    I don't have my Pro2C to hand, and has been such time since i last used it, however, if push comes to shove, can I patch the mix busses out of the rear local Master L+R, Mono, Mon A+B, Talk Out? Realised I'll be using all outputs on a DL251 and LOCAL out 1-8, and still need 3 more outputs mixes in an upcoming show and just need confirmation!

     

    Thanks!

      Nigel67 Hi DanH. Apologies for the delay in replying. The Mix L,R, M, Monitor A + B and Talk Out are all patchable so you have another optional 8 outputs

        DanH Just as i had hoped! Thanks Nigel!

    Is this Midas PRO2 still being produced and sold? Or if other new items are out?

    • Alexandra
      Dale_M Yes the PRO2 is still available even though it has been around for some years, however the new HD96 console may be of interest to you.

    One of the people on our mix team says the console is not changed when he recalls his scene file. There are no safes set. In FW V 4.0.2, were there any issues with incomplete scene recalls?

    I just updated to V4.0.6

    Thanks,

    Bruce

      Paul_Vannatto One scene may have been inadvertently overwritten by another scene, particular if the one scene is in slot 0 - done it many of times (that is why I always export my scenes to files as backups. If you want to compare scenes, export both to files and use the comparison feature of X32 Scene Parser

      dhla40 I get this issue sometimes, but not always. I save my scenes to my Laptop via the X32-Edit app. When I recall a scene, some settings don't always get changed. For example phantom power and mix bus settings. Weird. I admin that it could be user error, but it seems to work right most of the time. I don't think I have any "safes" set. I'm still trying to sort it out.
      • Aug 26
    • BrotherBruce
      Paul_Vannatto In X32-Edit, there are scene safes (on the right side of the scenes screen) and there are Mixer Safes. Check both screens. If the issue is intermittent, it may be due to poor ethernet/wifi connection between the computer and X32 console. The OSC protocol (which X32-Edit and the console communicates) does not have any message verification (ie. checksum) to verify what has been sent was received. This means that if the connection is poor, OSC commands may have been sent but never received and X32-Edit would never know.

    On the M32-Q app the channel names seem to be hidden after the buttons (see included screenshot),

    any suggestions to resolve this ?

    • BartVervenne
      Nigel67 Hi Bart. Is this the apple or android version please? If it is the apple version, we no longer support the M32-Q app as it has been replaced by the MX-Q app. If android, then I can report this to the design team as a software bug. Many thanks

    We just moved our Pro 1 inbto a space where we had previously used an X32. We connected to our two DL153 units and everything shows they are connected and talking to each other. We ran software updates on all three units. We routed everything 1 to 1, so the last input on the second unit is patched to channel 32, etc. 

    The first 8 channels on both units are peaking on the meters at the board, but silently. They don't make a sound. When we plug in a mic, no audio passes through to the board. 

    Has anyone encountered something like this before? Any ideas what may cause it or how to fix it? Any help is greatly appreciated. 

    Thanks!

      KevinMaxwell I had an issue like that once and I think it was that the synchronization was set to the wrong device or maybe it was 2 devices were set to be the master.

      Solved! Turns out it was a super easy fix and I feel kinda dumb. The stage boxes were set to 48khz and the board needs them to come in at 96khz. Apparently it’s a known issue (though I couldn’t find it on any discussion) that this causes peak noise. As soon as I set the boxes to 96khz, they worked great.

    Good Day,

    Is it posible to send audio signal to a Computer which is 40 mts away from my M32c using Cat5?

      RexBeckett Hi Joinville, you could use a KT DN9630, positioned close to the PC, to do this. This device converts AES550 to USB 2.0 and provides a 48 channel bi-directional interface. AES50 can work through upto 100 meters of shielded Cat5e cable.

      • M32C for Streaming
        KevinMaxwell I had to look up what the KT DN9630 is and that looks like a very interesting device. It has a control data port on it do you know if this is duplicating the Ethernet port on the back of the mixer so you could use X32 edit on the computer to control the mixer with that port?

        DavidKnighton Hello Kevin, the control data port was intended for use with remote preamps, but the concept was abandoned. Now it's just a center piece for discussion.
