    I would LOVE to improve the sound of our drum kit using the x32's gates and compression, have been reading a bit, but would love to know if any of you have any advice or great sources... specially curious about using the key filters in the gates, it SOUNDS like the right path, I'm just a bitt too much of a rookie (in this arena) to know where to start.

    thanks!

    btw, this would be a good spot to have shared libraries me thinks.... "hey, take a look at this snare drum preset I created and tell me what you think" sort of thing

    I am having a strange issue, I have had this happen several times now. During a show I lose the ability to control the keyboard volume in the mains. I can still control the aux outs but moving the keys fader for the mains gives no change in volume. The fader moves just no change in volume. I have tried it on different channels both with and without a di box. Some times it works fine bu not always. Any help is appreciated.

    Hi Everyone,

    Name is Garry Myers.

    Just purchased the XR18. Lots to dive into but so far I'm liking what I see.

    I'll be running all our live performances on the PC & Android.

    Running mains to a pair of JBL EON615s and four JBL EON610 for the wedges.

    Looking forward to the personal monitoring options.

    I'll be back with a pocket full of questions!

    Hi, I have a question about scenes.  We use the M32 at our church, so in our case scenes = service presets - one for the 9 am, one for the 11 am.  (We don't currently need or use multiple scenes within a single service.)

     

    One of the channels we use in one service is assigned a stage input and is used for acoustic guitar.  The channel is not used at all for the other service.  I noticed that when I disable the channel by setting its input source to OFF for the service where we don't need it, it also gets disabled in the other scene where we do use the input.  Can anyone explain what we're doing wrong here?  Very confused...

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Don

      When a scene is saved most all parameters are saved. When a scene is recalled, filters (safes) can be selected to protect certain parameters from loading. Under the scene area, look for "Parameter Safe", "Channel Safe", and the 8 dots on the right side of a scene when you're looking at the scene list (different firmwares and app versions have slighty different names and layouts). Look for these items may have been set (with good reason).  I'm guessing that setting an "input source" to OFF is a routing (or channel) function and if the routing (or that channel) is protected, changes will not be recalled.


      Try using "mute" on the channel instead—it may "recall" with your current settings parameter safe settings.  If that doesn't help, upload the scene in your next reply and someone will find the problem.

      Hi Dave,


       


      I have attached the scenes in question.  In the scene for the 9 AM service, Acoustic Guitar 1 is on Channel 1 (Input A08).  This is where the sound guy wants it for this service, lined up with the other instruments.


       


      In the scene for the 11 AM service, he prefers it on Channel 28.  As you can see, it is also (undesirably) still on Channel 1 in this scene.  Obviously this causes potential issues unless we insure the channel is either muted or all the way down.  When I set the Channel 1 source to OFF, it also disables Channel 28.  I have looked and can't see any "safes" set on either scene, or any other reason to explain this behavior.  Any idea as to what's going on would be much appreciated.  Definitely a noob here on this console...


       


      Thanks,


      Don

      I have been using scenes to change the mix between every song ( it's automated). I have found that it's not 100% reliable, 99% maybe, but not 100%. The scenes can get corrupted and then recall incorrectly. I'm now in the process of using snippets instead because a snippet only changes a those parameters you specify. 


      None the less, I have a few ideas.


      Try to set the Acoustic GTR on channel to off, then assign 28 after.


      Or set the Acoustic GTR to an unused channel (A01).


      There is nothing wrong with one source being assigned to 2 different channels. Just make sure the unused one is pulled down. Since the Acoustic GTR is part of the same mute group, muting might not be reliable ( if hard mutes are not set globally). Use different Mute groups for each service?


      Can you just use the 11am service as a "base" setup and then just have levels (and mutes) change without reassigning the inputs?

    I have a 1204usb mixer for karaoke and filler music. I have 2 ZLX 12p Evs for mains and a ELX 18p Ev sub. I would like to control sub volume separately from main volume. For karaoke I will also have a monitor. What's the best way to hook this all to my 1204usb?

      Hi Josh,



      For the monitor, attach a powered monitor via TRS cable to the Aux Send 1 jack on the 1204. Adjust the MON signal level using knob 1 in the Aux section for each channel.



      To use you EV setup you're going to need an external crossover since the 1204 only has 2-channel stereo out. Something like the Behringer CX2310.



      Hope this helps,

      Ken

    Hi guys!

    I'm trying to configure the SD16 the way I want with the X32. So far, 
    I have the inputs working correctly. However, I would like to have outputs 1-8 of the SD16 to work as an extra set of XLR Outs 9-16. Is this not possible?

    I have the SD16 switch set to 9-16. I also have the latest firmware installed on both devices. Your help is much appreciated.

    Thanks!

      Yes they can and you have set the switch correctly. By default the mixer will output correctly, but routing can be changed. Look at the Routing : AES50 tab and Routing : Out 1-16 tab to make the changesScreen Shot 2020-03-05 at 12.31.58 PM.png

      EDIT: Nevermind. This video answered my question:


      https://youtu.be/iq-eDbawHsU



      BTW, what's the difference between "Local" and "Out"?


       


      Since I'm using the physical outs of the X32 for 4 stereo wireless IEM systems, I'm assuming that I need to set Out 1-8 as Local and then Out 9-16 as AES50 Outs. Is this correct?

      @Jose7822 


      Good Question. Local are signals taken right off the preamps. Out is harder to explain. Out refers to the settings on the Routing : Out 1-16 tab. Depending on firmware and/or which app you use, this can have different names. The Out 1-16 tab is the first stage to assign a bus, matrix, or direct out to an output. These outputs go no where until you assign the second stage such as Card, AES50, XLR. It simultaneously make routing very flexible and confusing.

    Using ableton Live 9.7.2, launchpad and audio card that are plugged into the MM1 continue to function. This left me having to use my mouse for the crossfader with no EQ while opening for Alejo playing a 12-1am set. It just stops responding and it's getting worse. Will try a new cable, and see if the midi channel utility can lock me in on a channel that works. Anyone eles have a similar problem, whats your work around??

    I have a B215D that when plugged in and in use, at inconsistent times, it will begin just squealling / humming / popping. When this happens, I can turn the Vol / Gain down all the way, and it continues, just as if it was full 100%. I can remove the input cable, and it continues. It stops of course, when I remove the power.

    When I fire it back up, it is normal. But it will happen again at some point. I can't figure out what is causing it, or where to look for a fault. Has anyone else experienced this event?

      I haven't heard this particular issue happening so I believe that it's a pretty rare one. In this case the only remedy here would be to get the unit serviced by our CARE department if it's still covered under warranty.



      You can contact them at [email protected].



      If you're out of the warranty contact an authorized service center near you:

    I have a PMP 1680s and I have a set of passive monitors. My understanding is that the monitor out on my PMP 1680s requires active monitors. If I were to simply chain my current passive monitors on the main outputs used by my PA Speakers will I run into an issue? Will doing this take power away from my PA Speakers??

      JohnDiNicola Dear Angelo,

      You need to be careful about chaining speakers together off a single power amp output. For each speaker you connect, the impedance drops by half. I would not recommend using more than 2 speakers on each channel, but to know for sure what would work I would need to know which speakers you intend to use. Also, if you are chaining your monitors off the main signal you would not be able to create a separate monitor mix.



      For this reason the PMP1680 has a dual channel power amplifier that can be used in three different ways:



      1. Stereo Main Speakers - Monitor output from MON jack on front of PMP, for use with active speakers or external power amp.

      2. Mono Main Speakers AND Mono Monitor Speaker

      3. Mono Bridge Mode



      If you set the power amp mode to MON / MONO, you can connect your Main speakers to Output A and Monitors on Output B.

      Now Output B is sending the same signal to your passive monitors that goes to the MON jack on the front of the unit, which can still be used with active speakers. Hope it helps!

      AngeloBellavia I have two yorkville yx12's for speakers and two yorkville yx10's for monitors. What would you suggest would be the best setup?
      • February 3, 2014
    • AngeloBellavia
      JohnDiNicola Dear Angelo,

      The PMP1680 has plenty of power to power all 4 of those speakers. I would suggest using the MON / MONO mode. Connect your first main speaker to Output A on the back of the PMP1680 and daisy chain the second main speaker off of the first speaker. Do the same with the monitor speakers on Output B. Now you can use the MON controls on each channel of the PMP1680 to build a separate mix for the monitors. You can also EQ the monitors separately from the mains, which is a big benefit.



      Be careful of how loud you turn up the master volumes on the PMP1680, as it is capable of providing more power than your speakers are rated at. Hope it helps!

      AngeloBellavia Would I also be ok if I chained sub woofers as well?
      • February 4, 2014
    • AngeloBellavia
      Paul_Vannatto Hi Angelo,



      I would not suggest that. First of all, subs need much more power than standard speakers to function correctly. Secondly, many subs are 6 ohm or even 4 ohm impedance. If you daisy-chain that with regular speakers (typically 8 ohm) you half the sum of the two speakers and get an impedance imbalance. I would suggest you either get a separate amp for the sub, consider getting a powered sub.
