      SeanFairchild Dear Tim,



      It could be that your signals aren't being routed to your main outs for a number of reasons. A manual for that unit is available here (also on the product page on our website, under the Downloads tab): http://www.behringer.com/assets/PMP1680S_PMP980S_PMP960M_M_EN.pdf



      If you're not able to tell if you've got some odd, switched routing going on, please don't hesitate to contact our CARE department as well at [email protected] to see if you may have a defective unit. But do check out the manual and pay special attention to the routing aspects - that could end up being the culprit. Good luck!

    So looking for some specifics here. I have to and you DSP 6000 amps and for vp1800s Subs. I'm using 12 gauge two wire jacketed cable and of course no electric connectors in between. I am assuming that I should be running these with two subs perseid on each amp that's the first question, the second is what would be the optimal DSP settings menu by menu for optimizing these speakers to work at their maximum potential and still allow Headroom and safety? Really looking for an answer from someone that could provide step by step an actual settings and advice. Really appreciate it. I have been using Behringer gear since they first started and I've always been a fan. These are being used for small to medium-sized clubs for a variety band application. Primarily they reinforce the kick drum and lower bass guitar registers

    We are comparing the Behringer X32 board with the Presonus StudioLive board. Does the X32 have a feature like the Presonus StudioLive Capture? The Capture feature will be very useful in our House of Worship setting.

      Unless he has the x32 BigBoy then the 32.4.2 template is a better choice.



      If you are using studioone then make sure that the x32 is the selected audio interface before choosing the template. This will make sure that all routing is correct from the start.

      BrandonTull I have Ableton, but from what I researched you can't capture the raw inputs and send them back through the board. I'm wanting to really dive into the EQ after capturing the band playing.

      BitonWalstra here's what i do when teaching people by using my Producer with my MacBook Pro (USB) running Studio One;



      when the band is playing (Ch1 - Ch16) i make a multitrack recording by using Studio One

      then i use Studio One to play it back on Ch17 - Ch32 and let my students make the mix so no need to use the band anymore and we can endless repeat the music as long as needed. this also lets the band members hear then selfs.



      a difference with the StudioLive is that the StudioLive is using FireWire and you have a input toggle per channel between analog input or the digital FireWire input



      the way i use the Producer is that i use Ch1 - Ch16 for the live sound mix and then Ch17 - Ch32 for the play back so my students can mess around on the Ch17 - Ch32 without changing the live sound settings.



      there are always other ways to do this kind of jobs as the X32 is very flexible with routing



      hope this helps, good on you

    Hi:
    I just purchased a Xenyx Q1204USB. I'm a keyboard player and want to plug my amp into this device. Just wondering where do I plug my amp in? I also want to plug this device into our PA and need to know where do I plug the cable in from the PA to the Xenyx via a DI box.
    thanks so much for your reply.

    Hi there, a question about setting up a slightly different configuration than what I am seeing on the forums and in the literature:

    1. because all our mic inputs and electronics are run on a MOTU AVB network, we have all inputs/outputs coming into our x32 Core via the ADAT card we installed (32 channels in, 16 channels out).

    2. we regularly connect the x32 console we own to have a control surface to mix IEM monitors, so that configuration isn't an issue. When we do this we simply use CAT5 and connect via our Network switch. However...

    3. one audio supplier is providing me with an s32 and Ethercon snake, so, can I connect as follows: x32 CORE (ADAT in/out) -> s32 (as through box) -> x32 FOH desk then back to CORE for IEM and FOH outputs via ADAT?

    I have asked them for multiple CAT5 cables but they don't seem to understand that I don't really need the stage box. However, now I am curious whether the s32 can be used as a thru/bridge unit in this way, or if it really adds unnecessary complexity and or signal issues. If nothing else it would allow for support or DJ inputs to be available in an otherwise completely closed system, so I could see some advantages if possible.

    Note that because all signal is going through the MOTU AVB network, other than talkback (and the possible scenario above) we have NO xlr inputs going into any console, nor a need for the analog side of the s32.

    Is this a possible way to set it up, or not recommended? Any insights and config suggestions would be helpful.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Sean,



      Welcome to the forum. Evidently the audio supplier does not understand your current setup. The S32 is designed as a stagebox (analog in/Out), not as a bridge. Granted, the S32 (not the S16) can be connected in this manner (see page 6 of the QSG https://media.music-group.com/media/PLM/data/docs/P0BMC/S32_QSG_WW.pdf). But because of some internal bank shifting, it should not be used as a bridge.



      You are correct that it would only add further complexity to your current system. If you do need further inputs (eg. DJ inputs, etc.), I would suggest an SD8 to be connected to one of the AES50 ports of one of the consoles, then simply change the routing accordingly.

      CraigFowler Or if you've already go the full size console, plug your DJ input into its preamps\auxins and route their signals to the Core. You can then use the full size console to control processing\mixing on the Core (sounds like this is what you're already doing,) and still output those mixes to the Core's ADAT card. Alternatively, you could pull all the Core's inputs to the full size console, mix on the fullsize console, and pass outputs back to the Core.

    A Klark Teknik DN8000 arrived at our Kidderminster Care facility today for a minor repair. It turns out I was the technician who tested it over 20 years ago, on 2nd February 1998. It's in better condition than me! Reunited....Reunited....

    I am having trouble getting my sd cards to work with the M32 Live board. With cards inserted, it will recognize that there is a card but it will not allow me to use it. Also, it will recognize that there is a card in it, but will display it's info like size, etc. And while the card is inserted non of my record options are available. They are visible, just greyed out. When I try to press record it just tell me that I need to select a session, but it will not let me create one. When I press Utility and select Format card it flashes an error message saying "Card Not Supported" How should the card be formatted to work and/or should I just buy a different card that is already supported?

      Check the lock on the side of the SD card. I bet it is in locked position.

    Hello

    We have the Behringer X32 mixer and we just purchased the XTUGA RW2080 wireless in ear monitor system. The IEMs connect via the AUX-OUT with 1/4 inch cables. The IEM receivers run on two different frequencies. We have 6 bodypack receivers, split 3 and 3 between the 2 frequencies. Right now we can send audio to the bodybacks, and we can change the mixes between the 2 different frequencies. What I am having a hard time doing is figuring out how to send personalized audio mixes to each receiver/IEM. Right now any change we make to the channel or audio level on the Bus makes changes to all receivers for that particular frequency. For example, Bus 1-4 controls all the recievers on frequency 1 and Bus 5-8 controls all the receivers on frequency 2.

    If someone could help me with this, it be a huge help. I'm not sure if what I said makes sense so I can provide clarity if needed.

    Thank you

      Hello Jason, welcome to the community.


       


      The XTUGA RW2080 transmitter provides two stereo channels. This means that you can have two separate stereo mixes. Each bodypack can receive either of the two mixes. I don't believe there is any way to send additional mixes through one transmitter.


       


      You could purchase additional transmitters and set them at different frequencies. Each transmitter would give you two more stereo mixes that could be selected by the bodypack receivers.

      @birthtae I'm a bit worried as to what the problem could be, hoping I am wrong. Does the system transmitter connect by only 1 aux 1/4 inch,  or maybe 2? If so and there is not a way to connect more than one or 2 X32 aux outputs, that would be why. You can only send one mixbus per 1/4 in output (or 1 matrix which can have a combo of many buses). If that is not the case, that is the transmitter can accept multiple inputs from your X32, the issue would be one of the transmitter's setup ability in assigning a mixer input to a particular output and not an x32 issue. Assuming you already assigned each X32 aux out to a specific mixbus. If so and their is multiple transmitter inputs it should work ok and just be an issue of figuring out how the transmitter assigns its inputs to specific recievers.

      I see. That makes sense.


      Is this true for all or most wireless IEM?

      @birthtae 


      Yes. Most wireless IEM systems come in single or two channel versions and each channel can carry a single stereo mix. The IEM systems used by touring bands usually have racks of transmitters to support multiple mixes. Note that in some countries you would need a licence to run more than four wireless channels.

      Okay thank you, the cleared things up for me.


      Final question: with our current transmitter, there are 2 1/4inch Aux cables that we use per frequency, so 4 1/4inch cables total. The X32 only has 6 Aux Outs. How do I expand this if we wanted to get a second frequency transmitter?
