    Hi everyone. I am a newbie here.
    I just got my analogue Xenyx XL3200, and in the next few weeks, I am about to set this up with my Akai Professional Sampler S6000, which doubles up as a 16-track HD-recorder. It's going to be my rather small front living room, as a home studio, practicing and playing live with some friends, and when the time comes, multitrack recording.
    Does anyone else here have experience with this type of set-up? I'm curious.
    It's Great to be here, thanks for letting me in.
    Hilvert Scheper, (middle of) England.

    Is it possible in Global Setups VL3 to add the rapid tuning of Guitar Outs ( XLR & Guitar ) Hi - Cut Filter 4, 5, 6, 7 kHz 6-12-24-48 dB ?, because electro- a guitar with Magnetic Pickups even at the use of Cabinet Emulators VL3 very beats strongly distorting in the mid-hi kHz on Piezo and Magnetic Tweeter many Vocal & Acoustic Combos with large probability of quick damage, if I will continue to use Magnetic Pickups.

    Good day


    Recently bought Midas M32 and my preset library is empty:


    - Seems that X32 presets can work both on M32 & X32?

    - Where can I download the free presets that I;ve read about on the internet?

      Did you try to initialize/libraries? To be safe I would first save your current settings so as not to lose anything else, I believe that loads the factory presets. If you have none now, it will be at least no worse, it will overwrite any you have that are not saved though.

    For years I've been running my whole system on early 2011 MacBook Pro, 2.2GHz with 8GB RAM and proper SSD. The system has worked flawlessly. Don't know why but past couple of months it happens so that when I use Powercore Firewire plugins, then the whole sound gets glitchy and nothing really helps. It used to run smoothly but now doesn't. Anything in the setup hasn't changed except monitor speakers, but that's not the cause of the problems. So I've been thinking that I need to change my DAW computer. I use Logic Pro X. Other hardware besides Poco are: Motu 828 mk2 firewire + 8ch over ADAT, Virus TI Snow running audio over USB (this wasn't even connected when problems arised, 6ch of audio), Elektron Analog Rytm (which I wish I could run over USB too - 8ch of audio).
    I have couple of machines in mind: mac pro 5.1, mac pro 6.1 (using with tb-fw adapters) or perhaps new quad core 13" macbook pro. Any idea which system could work fine?
    + I have thunderbolt display, which has firewire ports and extra thunderbolt port, so any machine really suits. It's just that it must handle all the bandwith.

      refinery my suggestion? Wipe out your system, reinstall with the OS you have, and disable software updates including Apple's background security updates. Install your software. See if it works right again. Run the software updates and see if it breaks again.

      ive had weird problems like this as well, with VSS3 specifically, and I honestly suspect its Apple's background updates causing the problem.

      VSS3 has worked fine for me for years, and one day it just started freaking out, I had made no changes to my system in months. Looking into my system details though I saw a lot of background Apple updates... these are NOT system updates delivered via standard software update, but more a mechanism of their "gatekeeper" functionality which does transparently download updates without interaction from the user. Sadly though, Ive never had time to sit down and genuinely test this theory. But back when this happened to me, the only change I was able to find was a Gatekeeper definition update which had been downloaded two days prior.

      i suggest this because its entirely possible you could go to all the trouble on the new system and it turns out to do the exact same thing.

      refinery and if you want a recommendation for system? Build a hackintosh. Im using a DZ77RE-75K with OSX 10.9 Mavericks. I have a Powercore Express, Two powercore PCIs, and an X8 and Compact, and they work 100% (yes, PCI Powercores will work fine on intel machines) I also have an Apollo 8P and a Focusrite LiquidMix 32, and they all play nice together. Find me a real mac that will do that

      Taavi I actually got rid of the problem... my system just kept getting slower and slower and ssd which once write about 500+ MB/s then started to write at speeds of about ~15MB/s. It came out that the SATA cable was malfunctioning. So it's working good again

    I'm a recent convert to the XR18 for my five-piece cover band. We're using it for rehearsal but haven't used it live yet. So far, I am loving this amazing piece of kit. 

    Apologies if this is a stupid question.

    But can I use Logic Pro X effects during live performances by routing the individual tracks through Logic and back to the XR18?

    I'm happy to use the XR18 effects like Compressor, EQ etc (although I'm no expert!!) on individual tracks. However, I would like to put some more sound-changing effects on our electric piano - which I have done when post-mixing live multi-track performances already.

    Can I do that live? As an example, here is a link to a live performance of Mr Brightside, remixed afterwards in Logic - the intro is the piano made to sound like a guitar (because we have only one guitarist and he's playing rhythm).

    I don't think it's possible to change the sound so significantly with the Behringer guitar amp effect (I haven't been able to anyway). Hence the desire to route the sound through Logic and back. 

    Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hi Mike @MikeNorton,


      Welcome to the forum. There is no such thing as a stupid question - and we rarely have a stupid answer here 


      Yes you could use Logic to add desired effects to a specific channel (eg. electric piano). But there may be a certain amount of latency due to the speed of the USB interface and processing power of Logic and the computer. That said, here is how to setup the routing for it. Assume the electric keyboard is on channel 10.

      * Setup, USB Send - assign Channel 10 (analog tap) to USB 1

      * Setup, USB Return - assign USB 1 to Channel 10

      * Channel 10 strip, Input - select USB and adjust the trim.

      GaryWeller Or just use a distortion pedal on the piano.

      Thanks for your reply. Really helpful.

      Do you mind if I ask another question? I'm not entirely confident that my compressor/EQ settings are right on the XR18, simply because I'm a real newbie in terms of sound engineering. Is there a thread where I can post my settings file for feedback from people who know a lot more about it?

      And finally, one more question... can I run virtual soundcheck from Logic to the X Air App on my MacBook Pro WITHOUT the Behringer XR18 being connected? ie routing through the internal sound settings of the MB Pro from Logic to the X Air app? The box is in our rehearsal room and it would be easier to do it at home without it. 

      Thanks again for your help and sorry for all the questions.

    I recntly purchased the X32 and just added a single P16M for use in my small home studio.  However, I have tried everything I can think of to achieve a signal at te P16M during playback from Pro Tools through the X32, or when recording to Pro Tools via the X32.  I'm concerned that the used P16 I acquired may be faulty.  The unit powers on, seems to outwardly respond with lights and knob movement, but no signal to headphones plugged into the rear of the P16M. Although the unit was  sold to me with no Ultranet "Through" connector, the previous owner assured me that hte unit did function when last used a couple years ago (wondering if this might be my issue, but hioping he was correct - I've only spent $50 on it, so I think worth the chance).  Using X32 Ver .11


    Setup is:  ROUTING / ULTRANET / P16 Output 1-16 - Direct Out 1-16

      Hi Bob @Ruksacbob,


      Welcome to the forum. What taps are you using? If it is IN/LC, it will be the preamp level of the actual XLR inputs, not what is the source of the individual channels (such as the card in channels). What do you have assigned on the Routing Inputs for both recording and playback mode? I would suggest you export your scene to a file, zip it and attach it to your next post (click on Choose File below). That way we can have a look and better advise.

      Thanks for the quick response Paul. Sorry for the delay gettin back to you - I had a flight to Europe and just returned last night. Before I left I connected another musicians P16M to the Ethernet port on my X32 and he did receive a valid signal, so it appears the $50 P16M I bought used will be a future “parts investment”. All set now. I have had a chance to read a number of the interactions here in the Music Tribe Community and have to say I’m quite impressed - very good reference material for the X32 user, especially valuable as the documentation from Behringer is pretty sparse. Thanks again Paul.

    Is it possible to change the volume of the samples higher or lower? I have some samples that are loud and some that are too quiet. Thank you.

    Hi, am a new user to the Midas product. I just got 2 Midas pro 2 with the dn9650and ktdante 64. How do I hook them up for stage and FOH. And how do I also connect the dn9650 and ktdante 64. So I can record 64tracks
