    Hi,

     

    my church has a Midas m32 console, and 2 s16 stage boxes. We currently have in use the first 16 inputs ( 1-16 )on one s16 and a handful of inputs ( 17-25) on the next s16. We are also using 6 of the outputs ( 1-6 ) on one s16 for IEMs and 2 outputs ( 15-16 ) on the second s16 for our main PA. These are both connected via AES50 A cable. The stage boxes are connected by running a Ethernet cable from AES50 A on the back of the console to the AES50 A port on the first s16, then it is connected to the second s16 by running an Ethernet from AES50 B on the first box to AES50 A on the second s16. 

    we also have a LABGRUPPEN connected to our m32 console for running overflow speakers to other rooms ( we have these labeled as matrix 1,2,3 ) these are connected to the back of the console on output ports ( 9-13 ) how can I map these stage boxes and local outputs in the routing section of my m32 but also have the ability to control each one of the matrix individually

      Paul_Vannatto I'm not sure what you are asking for. If you have the M32 and 2 S16 all connected and working as expected/desired, why are you asking for the routing?

      For your last question "ability to control each one of the matrix individually" you would do that by selecting the Mtx 1-6 Main C layer on the right bank of faders and adjust the desired matrix master fader.

        Dontiveros Sorry if it didn’t make sense, I am the 5th person to touch this board in less than 3yrs and each person before me has changed or routed things differently. It was a big mess and I guess I still don’t quite understand the p16, user and xlr tabs of the routing page.

        When I turn the faders up or down for our matrix’s it does not adjust/change the sound to those speakers it remains the same. Again sorry for the confusion I don’t know where to begin or how to ask for guidance on my situation.

      Paul_Vannatto Thanks for explaining your situation. Now I understand. Give me a moment and I will map out the routing for you.

    • Dontiveros
      Paul_Vannatto Here is the routing for your setup. If this doesn't work, what I would suggest is for you to export your scene to a file and provide a shareable link to it (using something like Google Drive, etc.). If you need help with that, let me know.
      Here is the routing:

      Routing, Inputs screen
      * Inputs 1-8 -> AES50 A1-8
      * Inputs 9-16 -> AES50 A9-16
      * Inputs 17-24 -> AES50 A17-24

      Routing, Out 1-16 screen
      * Output 1 -> Mixbus 1 (post fader)
      * Output 2 -> Mixbus 2 (post fader)
      * Output 3 -> Mixbus 3 (post fader)
      * Output 4 -> Mixbus 4 (post fader)
      * Output 5 -> Mixbus 5 (post fader)
      * Output 6 -> Mixbus 6 (post fader)

      * Output 9 -> Matrix 1 (post fader)
      * Output 10 -> Matrix 2 (post fader)
      * Output 11 -> Matrix 3 (post fader)

      * Output 15 -> Main L (post fader)
      * Output 16 -> Main R (post fader)

      Routing, AES50 (out to 2 S16)
      * AES50 A1-8 -> Out 1-8
      * AES50 A9-16 -> Out 9-16

      Routing, XLR (out to XLR outputs on back of console)
      * Outputs 1-4 -> Out 1-4
      * Outputs 5-8 -> Out 5-8
      * Outputs 9-12 -> Out 9-12
      * Outputs 13-16 -> Out 13-16

      For the 2 S16, make sure the first one is in mode 1 (Out+8 and Out+16 lights not lit) and the second one is in mode 2 (Out+8 is lit).

    We're ready to send some more people out for the in-person sessions.  https://www.midasconsoles.com/training.html has some June dates marked "Full". It isn't really clear what year these dates are for, either.

    I'm looking for the contact person on these trainings, any future dates, maybe how to wait-list our people in case the June slots open up.  Thanks!

    Does anyone know if there is currently a training course for the m32, I currently run one thru a few production companies but feel i could improve my navigation around the console as well as patching capabilities.

    • tdukstein
      Paul_Vannatto M32 and X32 DSP (screens, routing, etc.) are identical. So any X32 training also applies to the M32. Only the control surface (faders, knobs, etc.) preamps and physical outputs are different. Therefore any X32 training will also apply to the M32. Drew Brashler has a number of excellent tutorials on YouTube.

    I think it would be great if you could create user layouts on the console,similar to Yamaha QL series. This would be a great advantage to get control of what faders you need on one layer. For example I have a band that has many left and right mics or Di's. I would liKe to place the left on the top surface and have it control the right on the hidden bank.

      • User layouts on console
        KevinMaxwell A work around for User Layers is to use DCA spill functionality. In the latest firmware if you select a DCA it spills the contents of that DCA to the 16 channel faders to the left side of the console, this is on a full sized M32 or X32. So if you have assigned all of the channels (up to 16 of them) that you want to see (in a custom layer) to a DCA then all you need to do is hit the SEL button above the DCA and you will have the layout you want. So unless you are using all of the DCAs for other things, this can be used as a workaround for custom layers.

      Paul_Vannatto This has been requested numerous times over the many years the X32/M32 have been in production. The answer is that it is not possible due to the design limitation of the DSP. If you want custom layers, use either the M32-Edit (for Windows, Mac, linux or Raspberry Pi) or Mixing Station Pro (for iOS, android or PC).

    Hi,

    I have a Midas 32R that I'm demoing at a house of worship that is transitioning from a board that has 1/4" outputs. I did not have enough 1/4" female to XLR female adapters so I decided to use the AUX Outputs on the Midas to set up the monitor mixes.  I patched MixBus 1-5 respectively to each of the Aux Outputs 1-5 and set the tap point to PreFader + M. I can control the individual channel volume in the mix, however, I cannot control the overall mix volume. Is there are setting that I am missing?

      Paul_Vannatto Either there is a routing error or a parallel signal path. The best thing to do is to export your scene to a file, save to the cloud (eg. Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.) and provide the shareable link in your next post. That way we can have a look and better advise.

      Thanks. I factory reset the mixer. The issue was due to the tap point for the MixBus. The factory reset set the tap point for the MixBus to Post Fader. I now have Master control over the mix.

    Hi,

     

    Is there a way to change where the VU-metering picks of in the audio chain ?

    • BerndVanPraet
      ChaseMcKnight Hi @BerndVanPraet if you navigate to the Metering preferences ( Preferences / DSP Configuration / Metering) you have the option of changing output channel meters between Pre Fader & Post Fader.

      BerndVanPraet

      ok, the question I got from a tech was, the meters above the faders, are this showing PRE fader, after the whole chain of ' gain - dyn - eq - insert.

      • July 19, 2021
    • BerndVanPraet
      ChaseMcKnight Hi @BerndVanPraet , the surface meters above the faders default to Pre Fader for Input Channels and Post Fader for Output Channels. Yes, that's correct; it’s metering the signal post-processing but pre fader.

    We would like to connect a pair of stage boxes to the M32 in a house of worship. Ideally it would be one DL32 and one DL16.

    My intention is to have the DL32 backstage to handle all of our FOH outputs as well as our stage monitors and IEMs, plus the inputs from wireless mic receivers also installed backstage.  The DL16 would be on the stage to handle inputs from drums and other instruments, plus utilize the Ultranet connection for personal monitor mixers.  The stage boxes would have a connection to the M32's AES50 A & B jacks.  Are there any limitations on this setup, such as total usable inputs/outputs? Are there any benefits or down-sides to connecting each to a different AES50 bus?

      Nigel67 Hi kenspi. AES50 at 48K allows 48 channels bi-directionally so there would be no limitations at all connecting a DL16 and DL32 in series with each other. The only reason that I can think of for connecting the DL16 to AES50 A and DL32 to AES50 B on the M32Live would purely be for the possibility of damage occurring to the AES50 cable between the DL16 which is on stage and the DL32 which is backstage. What I am trying to say is that is may be easier to route the cable direct from the M32 to the DL32 than go from the DL16 to DL32. Apart from that, except for the physical routing in the patching page of the M32, either way is identical.

    Challenges using In StageCONNECT Calculator (SCCalculator)
    My proposed setup would be: Wing (FOH) - AES50 - Hub4 - SC - DN4816-I - SC - DN4816-I

    • It's not possible to select Wing AND Hub4. What could be the reason for that?
    • Second DN4816-I is greyed out but daisy chaining the DN4816-I should be possible.

    Any thoughts about this?

      No, Paul, I don't, yet. I'm absorbing all details as to fully understand the potential use. Based on that, investment plan will be generated.

    Hello!

    Does anyone here have the OSC control documentation for the midas pro series? I'm working on integrating them into companion, but I'm having trouble digging up good references on their protocol.

      KevinMaxwell I am running it on a PC running Windows 7 and it works just fine. so the requirements are very low.
