    I am using the X32 with an S16. I run my stereo in ears from the 1/4" aux outs and am having some strange panning.

    With the Aux 1&2 linked I am getting the following.
    Mono signals (drums) plugged directly into the X32 (1-8) I hear in center of mix
    Stereo linked channels (keys) plugged into X32 (9-16) I hear in stereo
    Mono signals (vocals) plugged into S16 on channels (19 & 20) are heard hard left and hard right.

    Channels 19/20 are NOT linked.

    When I unlinked the Aux sends to my in ears everything works as it should (however then I have to independently set levels for my left and right ear. hard to do on the fly while playing/singing, etc.

    Does anyone know if there is a work around or if I take a regular bus output 1&2 and use XLR to 1/4" from X32 to my Shure in ears inputs?

      RichardYClark Presumably you actually mean Bus 1 & 2 linked and sent to Aux 1 & 2 outputs? You should have a pan pot on each of the Sends from 19/20 to Bus1/2 so that you can pan them both centrally.

      DavidMattock I do believe (without actually checking) that I routed the mix bus 1&2 to the Aux 1&2. Both are linked LR to avoid having to mix twice. And like I said if I link the aux 1&2 (to avoid having to mix my left and right ear separately) any mono signal into the S16 pans left or right (odd channels left, even right). Regardless of where I pan those channels they end up hard left or right. Anything plugged directly into the X32 (1-16) works fine.

      RichardYClark I suspect that in order to send the same level to the linked Busses as the Main L/R mix you have selected Sub Group as the send tap. In which case this is probably why the sends end up hard panned L & R. Only if you select one of the other channel send taps will you have panning available to the Aux 1/2 outputs. But you will manually have to set each channels send level independently of the Main mix levels. However if you use the Post Fader sends then all you have to do is to set the Bus send level faders at '0'.

      DavidMattock So it continues.

      I reset the entire X32 rack and S16 and started over. Instead of sending the Bus out 1&2 to aux I sent Bus 1 to my Left input and Bus 2 to my right input of my in-ear receiver. I linked Bus 1 and 2 for a stereo out to my in ears.

      I have all my inputs setup the same as mono (and some linked stereo). 1-16 on the X32 and 17-32 on the S16. 1-6 all mono drums mix perfectly to center of the mix. Overheads on 7-8 (linked stereo) mix perfectly left and right. various inputs on 9-16 all work. 17 & 18 both setup as vocals work mixed in the center and then 19 and 20 (NOT LINKED) pan hard left and right regardless of where I place them in the mix. I am simply trying to have them centered as they are also vocals. Other stereo linked inputs work just fine on 31&32, as well as ambient mics on 29&30.



      Again if I unlink the bus input channel 19 & 20 both will center in the mix, as soon as I link bus 1&2 to provide a stereo mix it pans input 19&20 hard left and right even though they are centered and not linked.



      This seems to be a software glitch in the system and not user error. I'm checking now to see if all firmwares are current.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi David,



      Welcome to the forum. in all the years (5+) I've been using my X32 Racks, I haven't encountered this issue. Please upload a scene file that this is occurring. Here are the instructions. That way we can check it out without trying to visualize what is going on.

    I'm trying to use a x32 Producer and s16 as interface to record with Pro Tools. I have both x-usb and x-WSG cards. The problem I'm faceing is that I can't figure out how to monitor already recorded tracks and record at the same time. You know, like over dubbing and punching in. I also have a Powerplay HA6000 for the musisians. Ok, this is were it gets complicated. When I'm in record mode on the x32 I can't hear the already recorded tracks and when I'm in play mode I can't record. HELP!!!

      Make all the outputs be stereo 1 and 2 or the equal of that in pro tools. use aux remap on the inputs routing page and use card 1 and 2 for the source. You should hear your tracks on aux ch 1 and 2 of your mixer.

    Still awaiting a response from TC Helicon Support on this so I thought I'd ask my fellow users.

    This is my first VoiceLive Unit, but by no means my first modeling device. I seem to be having an issue with additive noise coming from both the XLR and 1/4 inch guitar outputs where there is an annoying high pitched tone like when you hear feedback from a mic is on the verge of happening. It seems to be the most obvious through the 1/4 outputs that connect directly to my guitar amps effects return.

    The incident goes away when all the effects are disengaged and is most obvious with gain staging effects such as the drive or compressor with makeup gain at default +13db.

    I've had the unit for about a week now and can get by using an acoustic guitar with the output signal coming only through the XLR outs. But when I split the guitar signal off through the 1/4 inch outputs, it is unbearably tiring to hear the high pitch whistle at rest. Sure the noise gate is trying to suppress it, even with the gate closed, but that's another issue.

    There seems to be no way to get rid of the annoying static sound that happens when the gate opens when threshold is reached on the noise gate. My Digitech GNX4 while coming up on ten years of age has a very "natural" sounding noise gate that doesn't exhibit a static sound when opening and closing. Note I have tried going through three different guitar amps both through their effects loops as well as into the front input jack. Each have the same result.

    Have tried different cables (which work fine with my other gear) and all yield the same result. Just wondering if I should try exchanging it or if this is a common issue that others don't seem to notice. Once again the problem goes away when the effects are disengaged and it is more obvious as gain stages are increased.

    If I can get passed this hurtle, I'll really be loving this unit because it really is an awesome concept when all goes well.

      Carsten, I think the only difference between my setup and your is I am running the guitar in mono and the vocal in stereo whereas it appears you are running both in stereo. I DO have the noise with the guitar in mono. I am not using a DI box.



      Vade's test is spot on. It seems the VL3 noise problem is related to the 1/4" jacks themselves rather than the guitar signal path.



      I really want to have independent control of the vocals and guitar levels at the mixer.. Apparently to do this I need to run in dual mono and lose the ability to have the vocals or guitar in stereo.



      This is a disappointment for me but not a deal breaker (in the event it is a hardware issue and not a software fixable one, which I have a feeling it is. I hope I'm wrong).

      I too hope, that it is a software issue, and not a hardware issue, because that would mean, that it will stay...



      It depends on which and how many effect, and how loud they are running.

      With the VL2 I never had any extra noises. Perhaps it is a feature, not an issue...



      In each case, I don´t wanna use my OUTs in Mono Mode!



      What? Why nightmare? I love those three movies.

      Hi Dave; My issue may be different than yours in that I have the whine on both XLR and 1/4" outs. I have it regardless of output mode, i.e., stereo, mono, and dual mono. While doing a bit of testing this AM I noted that the whine would sometimes increase slowly as in a slow feedback loop. This happened even with my cardioid mic turned off and facing away from my monitors at ~ 8'. Changing the input gain and guitar gain did not make a significant difference.

    Hi Guys,

    I just saw a beautiful Roland Jazz Chorus combo in a local pawn shop for cheap - it's a JC77, 2x10 combo with no FX loop. My previous experience with a JC120 (2x12 combo) was they have great cleans, bad distortion, but take pedals really well.

    Anybody tried it with the Nova System yet? If not, I'll bring mine to the pawn shop & see what happens. If somebody has already tried it - please let me know your thoughts

      lifele55 Do that... Test it out with the amp and if it works, you've found something great. Else nothings lost.
      • January 23, 2012

      Dante I may or may not end up trying the Jazz Chorus....just got a line on a Mesa Boogie Maverick 1x12...stay tuned
      • January 25, 2012
    • Dante
      lifele55 I envy you guys to be able to get hands on Mesa's of any kind... they're kinda scarce here and even if they do come round, they're just too $$$
      • January 25, 2012
    • Dante
      Dante Yeah, the factory is only 1.5 hours drive away - lots of Me$a stuff in the area. None of it cheap



      I'm still working on the guy with the Maverick...report to come
      • January 27, 2012
    • Dante
      Dante Well, the Maverick deal dried up and I got impatient. So, I found a Mesa Boogie DC-5 combo and I couldn't be happier. The amp sounds huge - without being loud. I will write a review in here when I'm done tweaking all my Nova System patches for the warmth of the new amp.



      One quick observation is that my delays and reverbs became much more prominent in the mix, allowing me to fine tune them a lot better. Very nice, and I have them extremely low in the mix, allowing for over-the-top settings later.

    Hi,
    I have a Ditto X4 and just updated the firmware, per the TCE website. I want to playback a single note so it's like a continuous smooth drone sound. I can see LOTS of people are having problems with this device. I even generated a sound from my DAW to assure a perfectly consistent sound [no human me involved] -- but I get this pop/click sound at the beginning/end of the loop.

    Here's samples showing the problem:

    Should I just take the thing back? I don't have HOURS and HOURS of time to invest in poor quality control.

      VmusicV I just took it back..... I am NOT spending $200+ on a pedal that doesn't work flawlessly out of the box. Obviously TCE has some serious quality control issues.

    Hi, I'm unable to patch my surface IO of my Midas Pro 1 to the Aes 50 IO in order to record in Nuendo 10. 

    Also when I play back any audio in Nuendo at mote than -5db, the sound gets destorted although I've used the digital gain trim in the Midas console. Please help.

      Hi @Janardan 

      How are you getting the tracks into the Pro1? If using a DN9630, is your Nuendo session at 96kHz? If using a DN9650, make sure you're either at 96kHz or 48kHz and it's set accordingly.

    Try this...

    In the Toneprint editor, assign delay time AND something else to the delay knob. As my example, I added a vibrato and assign the modulation depth to the delay knob, huge modulation depth for short delays and zero depth on the longest delay. Save Toneprint to pedal.

    Now, using the delay knob, set a short delay time. Gives big obvious modulation.
    Now use the audio tap feature to set a long delay time. It seems that ONLY the delay time is adjusted and not the modulation depth to go with it. (Had we used the knob, the mod depth would have changed too).

    Personally, I think this is more a bug than a feature, but who knows, the creative types among you may find it useful, so I thought I'd point it out.

    Hi,
    Despite the Gsys not being designed to bypass an amp when connecting to a mixer and PA, I'm still interested in attempting this perhaps using an amp simulator combined with a ISO-box etc. I'm also noticing this is affecting my FX loop and my external distortion pedals and what not. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm also wondering what the best way to connect the amp-less Gsys direct to the PA might be? Thanks!

    Hi,
    when I put the oscillators in "Tune Pot Bypass" mode they are tuned consistently a half step too low, i.e. pressing a C-key on my keyboard yields a B. Am I missing something?

    Regards,
    Felix
