      Hello Michael, welcome to the community.


       


      Do you mean the DN32-Live card? You can use this to replace the current expansion card provided you upgrade the console firmware to the latest version.

    Hi, I haven't bought a P16-m yet. Will the bracket P16-mb allow the P16-m to be mounted to a high hat stand with the unit facing the drummer at a reasonable angle?

     

    Also I looked online but wasn't able to find any info on the mounting holes. I'd like to devise a custom mounting solution if the bracket won't work, before buying it. Anyone have info on this?

     

    Thanks!

      Just answering my own questions. From a photo I found it looks as though the P16-mb will work fine with a High Hat stand.

    Hello everybody,

    I recently purchased the VL3 extreme and am very happy with it. However there are 3 things I cannot find how to do so I am wondering if there is something I have missed, a workaround or it is simply impossible to do... 

    1. Looper - When I press Stop track A/B/C button, the track stops instantly. Is is possible to press stop and have the VL3 to stop the track only at the end of it ?

    2. Drums - I am really missing the ability to have a set of drums that could be used instead of the metronome for example. Is it possible to replace the standard set of sounds usable for the metronome by another sound? Meaning to navigate in the files of the VL3 and replace the current metronome sounds by other ones ?

    Alternatively, I know I can load a drum patern as a backing track or record it with the aux input. However, once this is done, in loop quantize or smart I cannot change the BPM to adjust the pattern speed depending on my needs...I would rather avoid to have 10 backing tracks per drum pattern each with a different bpm.

    Do you have any recommendation on how to manage this ?

    3. Soud effects guitar or vocals - How can I do to have sound effects on the same preset or even on the whole VL3 to have the same output level in volume ? there are all sort of effects that **bleep**ulate, most of them with pregain and post gain volume options. At the end, hiting the comp, drive or changing the preset can give me a volume level totally different and therefore impossible to mixt together in the looper....

     How do you manage this without using a sound level meter in adjusting each effect / preset one by one ?

     

    Thank you all for you help!

      Hey @irwiner,
      Glad to hear you're liking your VL3X so far.  Hopefully I can help clarify some of these thing for you...


      1. There's no way to queue up a loop-stop action, pressing "Stop" will always stop the loop immediately.  This requires a little extra skill/work but you have to time your button press with the end of your loop when you want it to stop.


      2. The metronome samples cannot be altered or replaced.  Also there's no way to stretch or squish recorded/imported loops into new BPMs.  So yeah unfortunately you're stuck with having to import drums and dedicate a loop slot to each BPM you think you'll need.


      3. Output levels for each preset are managed manually.  There are of course the unit's overall output levels in the Mix menu, but getting each preset's output level relative to other presets is a manual process.  There's no global compressor or something that'll equalize all presets to output at a level similar to each other.  We did our best with the factory presets all to be pretty close to each other's output level, but creating new presets will require you to bounce back-and-forth between a few presets to get an idea of their levels relative to each other.


      Sorry this reply turned into "nope, nope, and nope" - if you have any other questions feel free to ask.  Cheers!

    Hi folks,

    Let me quickly explain what I'm trying to do and would like to have function. We're a Irish pub and our x32 feeds the main PA, two outdoor speakers (seperate outputs) and a PC for livestream via USB.

    We use an iPod for playback on aux 1-2 and I'm always fighting with the bar staff to leave the LR and outdoor speaker faders at a certain level. The outdoor matrix channels and online bus were both fed pre-fader from the main LR.

    Some days i'll come in and find the ipod at -10, the mains at -40 and the outdoors at -30/40 or the ipod at -40, the mains at -10 and the outdoor speakers at +10.. It's quite iritating.

    So what I'd done is sent the band/fx channels post fader to it's own bus submix and the ipod pre-fader to it's own bus. These two stereo submixes are then sent to the outdoor speakers giving independent control to the outdoor speakers. 

    I've also sent another post-fader mix of the band/fx channels and pre-fader send of the ipod to a bus for the livestream which is then sent to the USB output pre-fader/mute so that no physical change the bus faders affects the online feed. 

    What I want to make fool proof and easy is the iPod volume. This board is operated by 10-20 staff and many musicians without the presence a sound tech. When a staff member or musican forgets to mute the ipod aux channels, well you guessed it, you have music playing over a band online/outside and no one knows the difference unless told.

    What would be grand is it when a fader hits -oo it could auto mute itself and then unmute automatically when increased. This would be a selectable channel option obviously as you wouldn't want this behaviour on all faders.

    I'm probably creating a whole lot of grief for myself in doing all of this but I've had better results with the outdoor/online levels this way than how it was previously routed. I just need a fool proof way to get the bused ipod signal turned off when needed. And you might say.. "set up a mute group for all ipod channels and buses".. Yes that's fine and dandy until someone doesn't use the mute group button to unmute and only unmutes the ipod auxes for the house. It's happened.

    I'm open to suggestions on how to make it work better but that feature would grand in our situation.

    Thanks!

      @sgagnonDid you happen to try enabling 'hard mute' (on the setup/mixer page, X32-Edit)? If you then mute aux ch's 1/2 they will remain muted regardless of other mute/unmute key operations elsewhere on the mixer.

      GaryHiggins I just tried it and it's a nice feature but it's a global setting and because we use mute groups for the band and fx channels I would't be able to use this strictly for the ipod aux channels from what I can see.


      Unless Behringer feel an auto mute function would be benificial to more people than just myself I think my only option is to ingrain with staff/musicians the fact that the ipod channels NEED to be muted/unmuted all the time.

      I'm not sure that I understand your issue completely.  But, would it possibly help if you configured the gate on the MP3 channels as a ducker?  Very low threashold, longest hold and release, sidechained/keyed by a channel that would have input while a band is performing... a microphone perhaps.


       


      This would automattically, effectively "mute" the MP3 track while bands are performing... and automattically "un-mute" when there's no longer signal on the mic channel.  Pretty sure it would work that way.  Not positive though.

      Hi @SethUldall 



      I actually thought of this the other day before seeing your post and theoretically it should work. 


       


       


      I just need to find the time to implement and test it.


       

       Great minds think alike!


      Thanks!

    Hi, new to the Midas tribe.  My band has an M32R and I have downloaded the M32-midas app which we use during performances and practices.  I noticed the app has a demo mode and it would be helpful if I could drive the demo mode on my ipad with a demo song so that I could play around with the controls and improve my knowledge.  Is there a way to do that?  If yes, would it require I be connected ipad-with-the-M32R to do this or is there a way I could just work with it at home on the ipad only?

    Thanks,

      Hi @rhearst1 


      The Midas control apps only transmit control data; no audio involved. Demo mode is an off-line editor. Demo mode is very useful for learning the system's layout and functionality, and scene/show preparation. Not all functionality is available in Demo mode though.

    Have questions about the Bugera Veyron Tube version. Wanting to use it for tracking demo's but that's something I normally do at home. I live in an apartment. I know a straight tube amp would require a speaker connected to the load to not fry the circuits. Is the tube version straight tube or is the output itself solid state? From my research if the output is solid state then I'm fine not to have a load connected and could just use the post eq di out to my audio interface. Is that safe with this model? Should I looked for a load box? Does anyone make a load box that would handle the 500w @4ohm rating? I enjoy the head but trying to get more use out of it besides rehearsal studio and gigging.

    I have a Problem with my RD-8. I can transfer Patterns to Sequencer (Hard- and/or Sofware). It works fine. But if i transfer a Pattern from a Sequencer in to the Rd-8, there is no BD in the target pattern. If i trigger instruments from an extern  keyboard, i can record all instruments until the BD. Can someone check that? Recording of the BD in the RD-8 works. I think it is an Bug in the RD-8 Sequencer.

      Do you use the sysex dump function to send the pattern, or do you just play it live and record the notes?


      Did you check the note mapping of the BD?

      I record in realtime with sync with the sequencer. The note mapping is correct. If i use a keyboard i can hear the BD, but it is not recorded. All other instrument are recorded.

    Hello!

    Purchased 2 B115W some months ago.

    Anyone knows which bluetooth audio codecs are supported? (despite SBC).

    AAC? LDAC? APTX?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    The function Sync SERIAL is KO when I launch loops by switches assigned with buttonmap (S:A) => it works as Quantize whereas if I lanch loops in the menu "looper" funtion SERIAL is ok.

    Is it possible to do ? However, how can I launch loops and effects in the same time ? can I affect one loop to one preset and use steps ?

    Thanks a lot

      SERIAL quantization does not work with loop triggers - it has been common feature request in the past, as it would be a really useful functionality for the Switch-3/6.

    Hey all, first time posting

    My church runs an x32, and we have 4 wireless Shure bodypacks used for in ear monitoring. I send individual bus sends to the outs from our snake to the Shure transmitters. The issue we have, is inbetween rehearsal and playing our sets, the mixes in our in ears almost always change, sometimes to the point where instruments that were totally out of the mixes initially are now blaring in the new, random mix. I dont believe the wireless packs are connecting to the wrong channel, thus giving one musician another musician's mix, since after talking with them all, the mix they describe to me doesn't match any of the other 3 mixes it could potentially have connected to.

    I believe the bus sends are glitching and sending the wrong amount to each out. I am currently in contact with Shure's costomer suport to see if they have any ideas, and already reached out to Behringer.

    Has anyone experienced a similar problem? Do I need to clarify anything? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

      Hey Connor @connorolmsted 


      Welcome to the forum. In the 6+ years I've been using the X32, I've only encountered a "random mix" scenario once. I was providing the sound equipment and expertise for a Christian high school musical (theatrical) production. Part of my expertise was to teach a couple of the students how to setup and mix the production. This particular production was the 3rd one they had done in a 2 year period. During rehearsal, things started going a bit bizarre. All of a sudden the Main LR fader would jump, etc. It finally dawned on me that during the previous productions, they had used one of their iPads and I had not changed the password on my wireless router since the last production. I quickly changed the password and the sound system was miraculously exorcised. Hopefully that is not the case for you. But just in case, I would suggest you change your password as well.


       


      Another suggestion is to attach your scene file to your next post (Choose File below) and we'll gladly have a look and better advise.

      Ok, I can upload it tomorrow. No one else could be messing with the board over WiFi, even if they did, when looking at the sends, it doesn't seem to match up with what they explained. I played a few weeks ago, and my mix lost all drums and some other things were different. I can't replicate the problem with the wireless packs. Every time I reconnected them, they always connect to the correct receiver and channel of the receiver...

      Hi Connor @connorolmsted


      How old is your board and how dusty is the environment it lives in? It may not be an issue in your case but when the internal boards and codecs become covered in dust they like to overheat and create gremlins. I've seen it happen to a board used in a bar, but that's an extreme environment with a lot of dust. There was so much dust in the unit that it stopped functioning altogether until it was serviced.

      The board is around 3 years old and hasn't been serviced. Maybe I should give it a good blow-out/dusting? Can the deoxit fader lube be used on the faders? Or no, since they are motorised?

      • September 24, 2019
    • connorolmsted
      sgagnon

      It wouldn't hurt to open it up and give it a good spray of compressed air. I've taken ours appart one to service a broken motor track and it should only take an hour or two at most if you need to take boards off the chasis to clean them properly.


      Should be safe to use contact cleaner or fader lube on the faders. The motorised portion is just a rubber track glued to the fader.
