    I don't know where to ask, the audiophile subreddit was no help, not much on google either.

    I'm looking for passive speakers that do well with techno & electronic music in general. I'm sure you'vee noticed that sometimes high end speakers are great for all types of music, except for techno and electro where the bass doesn't sound sharp and detailed but rather slow and messy. how to win at internet cafe sweepstakes

    What passive speakers would you guys recommend ?

      What size, power and price range are you looking for? Otherwise the sky's the limit. 

      "sometimes high end speakers are great for all types of music, except for techno and electro where the bass doesn't sound sharp and detailed "

      That's why active speakers can be so much better with separate amps for the top and bass where the bass can be much better controlled by being directly connected to the bass amp without any crossover components in between.

    During rehearsals today for the students music show week we lost a whole bank of channels 1-8 on our midas m32 desk. Just wondering if this is something that's happened to anyone else before and if so what kind of repair was needed?  Would be really grateful for any advice.

      Hello @Ceri , welcome to the community.


      It sounds like there is a hardware problem on your M32. I suggest that you raise a Care ticket for Service Repair explaining your problem. This is done by clicking on Support at the top of the page and then clicking the Create a Care Ticket button. This is only possible if you have completed all the required fields in your profile. Also make sure that you fill-in every required field on the Care form.

     open my arms to anyone who wants to pick up a new instrument or learn to DJ. But I'm relentlessly seeing people ask questions about if it's okay to mix multiple genres? Whether to use cross faders or channel faders? What the perfect BPM for house is? How should I transition tracks when mixing Dubstep etc.?

    It's absolutely okay to ask these questions but the answer is almost always: dude you can do whatever you want! You're a DJ. You have the tools be it your CDJs, your Traktor, your Belt Drives or even your smart phone app to be a creative artist and mix and blend the music that YOU love how EVER YOU see fit. The world of music is your musical playground. If you're asking the next guy how to crossfade Techno you will become the next guy. Do you. Sure you can take inspiration from DJs you love but ultimately these tools that you have in front of you, they are a vehicle for you to have fun and express yourself. internet sweepstakes software

    Learn what your effects do. Learn about gain. Learn the very basics of beat matching and that's it. Your levels, your effects, your faders.. They're your playground dude. Do with them as you please. Do you. Just do you.

    Love double drops? Become the master of them. Love scratching? Slay it! Love insane echo and reverb rewind/wheel up mania? Do it. Just want to casually cross fade one track into another over the course of 3 minutes because you love 10-15 minute balaeric beats? Do it. Want to start at 75bpm and work your way slowly up to 180bpm over the course of 6 hours? No one's stopping you. Rather I implore you do it.

    Stop worrying about how everyone else is doing it. Christ, I still don't even know what 30% of the effects on my mixer really do and I've been mixing as a hobbyist DJ for 13 years. But the bottom line is I'm a way better DJ than I was even 4 years ago. And for years ago I was way better than I was 4 years before that. And the whole time I've had nothing but fun. The research I've done along the way? Googled best equipment on whatever my budget has been and when I transitioned from Virtual DJ to CDJs 9 years ago I had to learn to beatmatch. And now I'm finally learning to use Vinyl (like a big boy) and it's not been too tricky. Otherwise there really isn't much els

      Hi Bhaik ( @bhaikosalam ), 


      Welcome to the community. Thank you and well said.  I've observed similar things in several areas and, while not assigning blame, I think it's at least partially due to the always-connected society we now live in.  Rather than experimenting and creating something new, it's easier to go to Youtube and find 20 videos showing you how to copy someone else's technique.  Want to sound like The Beatles? Buy a set of Abbey Road Studios plugins.  I see the same thing when it comes to problem solving.  Rather than reading through a manual or just stepping back and thinking for a minute about how something might work, it's easier to go to Google and search for an answer. 


      I've started using a catch-phrase of "Disconnect and Reconnect."  Disconnect from your phone and reconnect with your brain.


      Thanks again,

    We have three Crestron systems that have a Behringer XAIR XR18 Mixer. As of right now, there is no way we can control these mixers using Crestron SIMPL Windows. We are using a dedicated application to control audio in these spaces (XAir). Do you know if there is a Crestron module or some way other way (TCP/IP, etc) we can control this mixer(preferably using SIMPL)?

      Hi Josh @NYCCT_Josh 

      Welcome to the forum. This question has come up occasionally over the years. Unfortunatley the X-Air and X32 digital consoles do not communicate via TCP/IP. Instead it uses UDP via ethernet and uses the OSC protocol for its control commands.

    Hello tribe,

    During educational presentations, I often share screen with audio.  Stereo settings and original sound is activated in the Zoom preferences, but the signal being received by zoom participants is in Mono.  The stereo switch on the device is engaged as well.  Using a macbook pro running High Sierra.  

    I do not have this problem when a Focusrite 2i2 is being used in the signal chain.

        Nigel67 Hi John, have done some asking around. It will be fine to use them without gaining any permission as long as you are not going to put them up on the internet for anyone to view. I am guessing that you are just going to use them for students? It will not be a problem. Hope this answers your question

    I am unable to download the Windows 10 driver for a recently purchased UMC404HD. The download always fails. Same result with three different browsers. Documents download with no problem from this same page. I sent messages to "web site feedback" and also to "technical support" asking for help with this. The web site feedback message was completely ignored. The tech support message generated an e-mail citing a "case number," which was 00987105, and a promise to respond "within one business day." This promise turned out to be untrue, as I have received no further response. A PM through the Behringer Facebook page garnered an autogenerated bot response referring me to the support page, which was very frustrating since I had already tried that to no avail. Phone support appears to be non-existent. Is Behringer completely unwilling to provide customer support? Am I going to have to return this UMC404HD unit for lack of a driver? Any help would be welcomed. The downloads page in question is https://www.behringer.com/Categories/c/Behringer/Downloads#googtrans(en|en)
