      Bluewindee John, following on from your message ( which I cant reply to so sending from here) I initially tried to order the G Major button from the service/support section, HOWEVER the brand buttons to select TC Electronics does not work... So I fall at the first hurdle. Please help & respond back at [email protected] BIG thank you in advance. Rob

    Will an x32 compact retain all its setup as in fader positions, scenes etc when depowered/repowered. The scenario is in a church where very few have technical knowledge and powering up and down I need settings to remain.

      KyleJohnson Hi Matt, Kyle here with Music Tribe. In general, yes. The X32 saves it's current state every 2 minutes, and it will always boot in the same state that it was last shut down in. The only exception would be the Main LR Fader which by default will drop to the bottom when booted, but you can change this setting so that the Main LR Fader returns to it's last used point when powered up.

        mattprice500 Kyle. Thanks very much for this info. Just what I wanted to hear. Where do I find the setting for the Main LR fader ?

        KyleJohnson It's in the Setup>Config menu, the option you are looking for is called "Safe Main Levels". If it's checked, the mains will drop down at power on.

    Dear Team,

    We are Hoang Bao Khoa, a distributor of Music Tribe in Vietnam. We are looking for spare parts of woofer which is diaphragm.

    We know that your end sells woofer as a spare part. How about the diaphragm of woofer only?

    As our customers send us their feedback about this. When their Turbosound speakers have problem with woofer, they need to change the whole woofer instead of its diaphragm part only. This makes the fee for repairing increase. Meantime, JBL brand offers the smaller components of woofer (as in the picture), which reducing the cost much.

    Kindly advise if your end provide diaphragm as a spare part? Or any better suggestion?

    Thanks

    Diem

    Hi,

     

    i have a questin about using the card for a virtual soundcheck.  I am hoping someone knows a routing trick to be able to use Live Professor or Waves Mulitrack as part of the virtual soundcheck.  I just received my xlive card, but then had to leave town for a few days so I haven’t been able to trial anything.  I understand the routing from the card to the channels to do a virtual recording.  But I would like to be able to adjust the plugins based on the virtual sound playback.  I read that the USB port could be used for playback, and that the USB and SD card can be used at the same time, so hopefully that will mean I can route the “card outs” to the multi rack,  and the playback will come back to the channels if I select the card as the inputs?  Or can I somehow use the P16 ins and outs?  Virtually?   Any help would be great.  For playing live, I am set up to run through the mulitrack no problem with all the inputs going to the card, and all the channels receiving from the card coming back.  That works.  I just want to be able to hear the effects in the sound check.  We are a smaller band playing smalle venues, and I play bass and do sound from stage.  I am fortunate enough to play with a drummer using the Roland D-50 stuff, I run direct, keyboards direct, and just the guitar who has a small amp pointed at himself.  So for the most part, I am very much looking forward to the virtual sound checks.  And I thought I would try some of the awesome waves plugins as well.  

     

    Thanks,

      Hi @DuaneYates,


       


      I don't think that is possible. The reason is that the X-Live card has a setting for Playback mode: SD Card or USB. If you record the channels to the SD Card for future virtual soundcheck, you would have to set playback mode to SD Card. That will send the tracks to the respective channel strips (if Routing, home (playback mode) are assigned card 1-8, 9-16, etc.). The same signals from the SD card can also be sent out the USB to computer (Routing, card out -> assign card 1-8, 9-16, etc. allowing Live Professor or Waves to input them. But there is no way to get the return from USB, since you are playing from the SD cards. The X-Live can only play from one or the other (SD Cards or USB).

      Thanks Paul.  I respect your response as I have read many of them on here.  I will look into the DAW alternative.  I was just hoping to keep the computer working as little as possible.  And some concerns with the input gains maybe being different between the virtual sound check and the channels, routed to multirack.


       


      I also had some hope when I saw this in the Q&A section for Xlive:


       


      “Q: Can I use both the USB and sdcard at the same time?
      A: Yes, this is possible. Please note that both the USB and sdcard share the same routing. There is a special function to select if playback should come from USB or sdcard, leaving you with some extra routing functionality.”


       


      So I will play a little when I return home, but my expectations are lower now.  I do know I can get it done with a DAW and software to route things in the computer.  (Jack I think it is?).  Tracks live looks pretty light on the system and was designed just for this kind of thing and for “live” use.  If I have any real breakthroughs I will certainly update here.


       


      Thanks again.

      Hi @DuaneYates,


       


      The key word is "There is a special function to select if playback should come from USB OR sdcard, leaving you with some extra routing functionality.” Unfortunately that is not AND. What you are wanting to do (virtual soundcheck and external channel processing) requires 2 playback. 


       


      I can think of another alternative to your DAW solution. If you have 2 consoles (X32 and/or M32) you could use one with the X-Live card (using the SD cards) and the other with X-USB card for Live Professor or Waves. With some creative routing, it is possible to accomplish what you want to do.

      I guess I was hoping that I could send to DAW, and if I set playback to USB it would just magically come back. But I like your idea. I like having a good reason to buy another board!


       


      Do you know much about the X-WSG card?  It looks like that does more routing?  I will look into that. But would be great to have another board for more than just this operation. I was thinking of another unit instead of a digital stage box. I use the rack and 2 rack units would be nice to have. And very useful.

      Roblof I am not sure of how do you intend to use this setup? You talk about virtual soudcheck and external plugin support. Does this mean that you want to perform VS and that you are using plugins live?



      LiveProfessor and MultiRack are quite different in that MultiRack only supports Waves own plugins while LiveProfessor can use any vst-plugin it likes. X-wsg makes more sense using Waves soundgrid servers than standalone. Without the server the x-wsg will act as a networked audio interface, similar to dante. But, depending on your application and money an extra x32-rack or similar would make more sense, I think.

    What are the differences between the x-live and the dn32-live and why would music tribe make 2 of the same card under 2 different daughter companies. Is one better than the other?

    • RickyThomas
      GaryHiggins They are the same, can't say why they make 2, perhaps some people prefer one name over another. In some cases I have noticed, where 2 versions of the same card exist, there is a price difference, but not so here, both are $199 in the USA.

      Roblof I think that the KT branded card has a 10yr warranty compared to up to 3yrs for the behringer branded card.

        GaryHiggins I have an X-Live in my M32 and it shows up as far as I know? Perhaps a setting in the mixer itself is not quite right? I will double check it tomorrow. Latest firmware for both?

    We have a very simple setup and I am a complete amateur.  I haven't been able to find a definitive answser for my question..

    We have an XR18 mixer located in a room behind the pulpit.  We have ethernet cables connecting a workstation at the back of the church to run the sound - and it works well for us.  

    We are wanting to get sound from the XR18 to the sound station at the back of the church to connect to a laptop with OBS and to record services. Plus we are considering an X-Touch for a little more tactile feeling for our volunteer sound people.

    Is there an easy way to do this?  It's 50', so USB doesn't seem like a good idea.  Can a 50' Midi cable get sound to the back?  Will i need to get another long XLR cable and a sound card adapter?

    I'm sure the answer is out there somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it..

     

    Thanks!

      @jterps 


      You want to connect the X-Touch (located behind the audience) to the XR18 (behind the stage/pulpit). Ethernet is the best choice. The full sized X-Touch has Ethernet and it works very well with XR18. The other models of X-Touch are much harder to connect (and they don't work as well, if at all). MIDI at that distance sometimes works (and sometimes not); plus you would need two cables for in and out.

      Kyle here from Music Tribe. One other thing to note here for your broadcast. A 50 foot USB cable will be an issue. USB 2.0 has a recommended maximum cable length of about 12 feet. Any longer and you will have dropouts/distortion or just no connection at all. I recommend trying to put the recording/broadcast computer closer to the XR18. 


      The MIDI ports on the XR18 will not pass audio over any distance.

      HartmutLeyendec I run a similar arrangement in a seminar room. I have used a USB to Cat5 converter from ATEN. You will need to look for a model that supports a higher data rate if you want to transmit 18 channels. I do not remember the part number.

    Using an X32 in a church, the on-desk USB Socket for service recording is very useful!

    Prior to the Covid-19 lockdown we simply needed the sermons to be uploaded to the church website, after processing to .mp3.

    Now that something like "nearly-normal" services are being resumed, there are a number of members who, for various reasons, still feel uneasy about returning to church.  As a result the decision was made that the (already-shorter) complete service would be recorded and then uploaded to the website.

    Al recordings prior to the lockdown, were "perfect" and only failed through operator-error, e.g. forgetting to Stop the recording before the console was switched off, so producing a 0 byte file! 

    Since the resumption of services a problem has manifested itself: specifically, the recording stops, randomly, without any operator action or intervention and any file is reported as 0 bytes.  Sometimes this will happen once, e.g. last Sunday the recording was started deliberately early, within less than two minutes it had stopped, a subsequent restart  was initiated and the recording continued successfully to the end of the service.  On other occasions, e.g. the music group rehearsal last Thursday evening, there were at least three times when the recording stopped, each time with a 0 byte file.

    I raised this as a support issue with Behringer, asking for suggestions to avoid this random stopping of the record process, only to receive a link to a page where the process to retrieve a 0 byte file is given.  I pointed out that I did not want that particular information, helpful as it might be, but guidance on how to avoid a full service recording being puctuated by gaps where the recording stopped and being dependent on the operator noticing the stop and immediately restarting the recording.

    I have verified that this is not an issue with the particular USB Memory Sticks being used.  Both are 32 GB, different manufacturers and both have passed a soak test of writing test data to completely fill them and then verifying the recording by playing back and reading the data.  (I used a very usefull utility called "h2testw" for this.)

    So, after a somewhat lengthy preamble (sorry about that): does anyone have any similar experience or advice to offer how this problem may be corrected and/or avoided?

    TIA

    Jeff

      JeffClarke1 Thought I would update this thread, with the solution to the problem, found after several email messages with Behringer Support UK.

      Although Support never actually confirmed this, it would seem that, with the introduction of v4 Firmware, there is now a requirement to use a USB 3 Memory Stick. Doing so has enabled us to successfully record recent services without problem.

      • X32 USB Record Socket failing?
        VictorRusso Hey Jeff, are you still having this issue? Seem to be having the same issue, regardless of usb 2 or usb 3 (using usb 3 today and it failed mid sermon, subsequent restart seems to go for at least a good amount of time). Music Tribe, is there a fix for this issue or do we need to work on an alternative?

    Can I use my XR16 to connect to an SD-8 or SD-16 that I want to put remotely by our church's old sound panel where the mics come in and the amps are?

     

    Many thanks,

      RexBeckett Hi Robin, the XR16 does not support AES50 so cannot connect to an SD8 or SD16 stagebox. It may be better to consider an X32 Rack for this project.
