    I'm owner of MIDAS MR12. But the unit has very loud POP impulse when I doing switch off (disengage) the unit. By the POP I can damage my PA system. Is it normal? Is it quality of MIDAS?

    By the way, CARY TICKETS is not in function!

      The amplifiers/speakers should ALWAYS be turned off first. The proper way to power on and off a sound system is when powering on the mixer gets turned on first and anything else between the mixer and the speakers and then turn on the speakers. When turning the system off the speaker HAVE TO BE TURNED OFF FIRST. Or you will get that pop.The POP will happen with just about any mixer if you turn it off first.

      Remember, First On, Last Off - I've had that in my head since 1978.  Your mixer is the first thing you turn on and the last thing you turn off after the event.  Also turn your amp / active speakers on with volume down, then turn up slowly just in case there is a crazy hot source open that you're not aware of.  The good thing is you can do all that from stage w/ the ipad apps.

    Does Midas offer any standard 19" rack munts for the MR18? The ones they came with are 3/4" too long for standard rack cases. Would love some insight.

    I am not getting enough signal from a couple of microphones I am using as band area mics.   The microphones are SM58s that are plugged into a 16 channel snake, which are then ran into a DL32.  The DL32 then runs to two consoles over ethercon, a Midas M32 at the main mixing position, and a Behrenger x32 at the monitor position. We cannot seem to get enough signal, if I push the gain to full I'll maybe get some distant chattering. 

    Is there a way to increase the gain on the band area mics?

    Also, is there a way to set phantom power on a DL32?  We have tried but the stagebox doesn't respond to the console.

      The SM58s aren't fantasic to use as band area mics.  They're not as sensitive as you need them to be, and they have a cardioid pickup pattern.  They're great for a single vocalist, with their mouth 2" away from the mic, not so good at picking up sound from a large area.  You can add 60dB up to 60dB of gain, and then a further 18dB of digital trim, but I don't think it'll work very well.  You'd be better off with a different mic. Even a drum overhead would probably do a better job.


       


      Re +48V, you've said that you're using 2 consoles.  Only one console can control the preamps on the DL32, so make sure you're using the correct console.  Setup>Preamps can be used even if those preamps don't apply to actual channels.

    At the current time, M-32 edit v4.0 is available to download. However the link to the Mac version is wrong (3.2). I'm guessing the firmware will follow very soon???

      Wow! This is gonna take a minute to digest.


      User In and User Out are cool. Now I wanna rebuild my whole setup.


      @Paul_Vannatto  It seems that Output 1-16, Ultranet, and Aux In are still the only way to add a Mixbus to any outputs. Does that mean we (potentially) have a triple staged output system? For example. Mixbus 1 > Output 12 > User Out 48> AES50-B 48 (and/or AES50-A 8)?


      I suppose all this new power will lead to some serious thinking. How do we explain it to new users?

      @DaveMorrison  - I've got a headache reading what you just wrote.   I wish I had the time to write a graphical routing tool that allowed scene editing and saving.   This new firmware is going to require a lot of pencil and paper sketches.  Fire up the scanner.

      Saw some of this on Reddit a couple of weeks ago.


       


      It looks like using the User IO we can move away from the blocks of 8 a bit, especially wrt inputs.  It looks like we can get source signals from anywhere outside the DSP using the UserIn tab, and not be restricted by the blocks of 8.  2 local preamps (not necessarily in the same block of 8, in fact not even next to each other) + 1 card in + another local preamp + 1 aux socket + 2 remote preamps + another card in, all in 1 block of input signals is now possible, without needing to burn other input blocks, or get creative with the AuxIn Remap, or re-assign channel sources.  Yay.  Also, the internal TB mic and ExtTB preamp are both available as separate sources; so no more burning a bus to get TB to a channel.  Then once we've "staged" the UserIn tab, we can apply those userIn blocks to the input tab.  Alternatively, if we're happy with the blocks of 8 as is, we can route inputs normally, ignoring the UserIn tab alltogether.


       


      This makes a lot of my previous posts redundant. 


       


      Re outputs, it looks like we can just do the normal stage to block then assign block to output as per usual, however the UserOut tab can be used for things like passthrough without relying on blocks of 8, similar to input blocks, but can also be used to mix and match DSP signals staged in the out1-16\aux out\ultranet tabs in too, in pretty much any order, ie in the one block-of-8, you can get the signal from output5 in the out1-16 tab (eg bus5, post fader) appearing next to the signal from output15 on the ultranet tab (eg DirOut ch15, In\LC,) appearing next to a tap straight off a remote preamp from a stagebox connected to AES50A, then a signal from a cardin (eg a click track, no need to assign the click to a channel,) then the signal from a preamp from a stagebox connected to AES50B.


       


      Basically we've almost hit routing nirvana (though IMO the app could use some workflow tweaks.)

      When I saw that 4.0 (M32-Edit) was available, I had to look. Thankfully all the old ways seem to work. But the User In and User Out tab were mind numbing for a bit. I couldn't even understand the GUI for 10 or 15 minutes. It makes sense now.

    I am trying to route the effects out to my DAW. I have assigned a guitar track to a sterio reverb but as it stands now the effects are coming back on bus 13. I would like to be able to record the guitar to a track and record the effect on a seperate track but can't finger out the routing scheme to move the effects to the card outputs .

      @S-Audio 


      With default routing, something like this would work


      Screen Shot 2019-11-05 at 9.39.39 PM.pngThis would put FX1's signal on (virtual) outputs 3 & 4 which also would be routed to USB 3&4 (and XLR 3&4). Alternately you could use either Aux Output or Ultranet to send to the card (USB).

    Has anyone used this Smaart Dynamics effect in Midas Pro, how do you use it and where? Thank you

    Hello !

    I'm learning the mixing and got an issue i'm trying to solve.

    On my M32, everything was fine and suddently, when i press "Solo" on a fader, it goes into my headphones AND my L/R monitoring...

    Everytime i press SOLO on a fader, it goes like the monitoring was a "second" headset.

    I passed 2 days on it, tried all the settings i could find and finaly reseted the M32 (factory reset) but it didn't solve anything (so not a settings issue ?).
    I can guarantee that the cabling is good.

    I obvisouly can't mix without using the Solo in my headset ONLY.

    I asked to teacher in charge but he failed to solve this case, can you help me ?

      Hi Victor @CLVictor 


      Welcome to the forum. Are your monitors connected to the monitor outputs on the back of the M32? If so that explains why. The monitor outputs are tied to the headphone outputs. If you want the monitor outputs to be separate, you will need to use a couple of the outputs that are under the XLR inputs, then assign the routing appropriately (Routing, XLR Out).
