    I have an X32 Producer in a rack with all of my Axient Digitial receivers and PSM transmitters. Can anyone help me set up routing them via AES50 to my WING so they can be mixed from the wing directly? Occasionally only the rack will be needed for smaller events and I'd like to still maintain the ability to keep the current routing saved and then when used with the wing as a FOH console, have the option to switch to routing it as if the X32 is functioning as a stage box. **Side note... I'd also like the amps for the speakers on stage to remain connected to the x32 with the wireless equipment. So I need help figuring out the routing so that when using the Wing FOH and the X32 in the rack everything is mixed at FOH and then sent back to the amps.

      Hi Nigel @NigelCarter 


      For using the X32 Producer in between the receivers/transmitters, you can assign these inputs (mirrored from the Routing, home screen) to the respective AES50 screen. For the outputs, it would depend on how you have it currently setup. I would suggest you export your scene to a file (either using the Utility button on the console or X32-Edit Export) and attach it to your next post (Choose File below). That way we can see what you currently have and better advise.


       


      For accessing your receivers and transmitters directly on the Wing, you are aware that the Wing only has 8 XLR inputs, not 16 (that the Producer has). That means that if you have more than 8 receivers, you will need a stagebox to provide the necessary inputs. You can convert your existing X32 scene to a Wing snapshot using the XM32 to Wing Converter

    Hi all,

    Thank you so much for the efficient help I've found here.

    Here is another question I have for you.

    In order to get the XAir 12 connected to a computer as an USB entry of a DAW (Garageband on MacBook Pro), I have added this Behringer box UMC202HD, connected as shown in the attached picture.

    When I play 1 chord on my guitar, XAIR Edit shows a signal level of -30 db on the main LR output.

    The signal I get as a result in Garageband is all the way right on the red clipping zone.

    I have a ton of ways to get this signal to the right level, and this is my problem; from thebeginning to the end :

    - reduce the volume on the guitar (at the max right now to reduce the noise and parasites)

    - reduce the gain in XAIR Edit (at +20 right now because when all the faders are at 0, this is the best balance between all the devices connected to the XR12 - mic, others guitars)

    - reduce the fader of the channel in XAIR Edit (at 0 right now)

    - reduce the fader of the main output in XAIR Edit (at 0 right now)

    - reduce the volume of the output channels on the UMC202

    - reduce the volume of the main output on the UMC202

    - switch from line to instrument on the UMC202 (no effect anayway)

    - push the pad switwh on the UMC202

    - reduce the entry level of the channel in Garageband (at -5db right now)

    - reduce the volume of the master track in Garageband (at -5db right now)

    - a combination of the aboves

    Sorry for this long post. Thank you for reading.

      DavidKnighton Hi Saleya. What you need to know here is that the UMC is adding a 2nd preamp stage before the signal hits your DAW. This means the level is getting boosted from the mixer initially, but then on it's way out, it's getting boosted again, which is typically not a good thing. Setting the UMC to Line Level will allow the signal to pass through relatively unchanged, however you still have some control over level using the knobs. I recommend putting your level knobs all the way counter clockwise to begin with and let the mixer set the level. Then if you need more input to your DAW, you can boost the level knobs a bit, but try not to rely on them too much.

    Hi All,

     

    I have owned the EURORACK UB 802 Mixer for many years with no issues, but decided to upgrade to the XENYX 1002B Mixer and was at first very pleased with the quality. All the channels work very well using my high impedance microphones which do not require phantom power, then I connected the Behringer C1 Microphone (bought at the same time as the UB 802) and turned the phantom power on the new Mixer, put the Mic fader up to hear Mains Hum plus the audio from the Mic, I changed to Mic 2 channel but got the same results. I re-plugged the C1 Mic back the UB 802 and the audio from the Mic was clean, I turned the gain up to the max and proved the Mic is fault free, no Mains Hum just hiss from the high gain.  I connected the C1 Mic back to the new 1002B Mixer and the Mains hum is still there. My word my new purchase seems to be faulty on all five Mic Channels when the phantom power is turned on.  Do you have any suggestions as to why this is happening, or am I missing something?  

     

    Kind regards

     

    Chris

      RexBeckett Hi Chris. According to the published specs, the C1 requires a phantom supply of 36-52 Volts. The phantom supply on the 1002B is only 18 Volts. You could try using an external 48V phantom supply between the mic and the mixer. e.g. Behringer PS400.

      LNCRP00 Hi Rex, Many thanks for your advice, I feel quite stupid now as I did look at the specs, but totally missed that important bit of info. I have just looked at your recommendation on Amazon and it will now arrive early September. Thank you Rex for your help. Best Regards Chris

    Hi. I'm using SynthTool 2.40 and two TD-3, both on firmware 1.2.6.

    When I use the "dump" feature in SynthTool, then it properly exports 64 patterns (counts up to 64).

    When I use the "merge" feature afterwards to import the previously exported dump file to the second TD-3, then the "merge" counts up to 49, and then says that it was successful.

    So basically, what it imports via "merge" is all correct, but it's only 49 patterns, means 16 patterns of pattern bank 1, 2, and 3, and only the very first pattern of pattern bank 4.

    This is very easy to reproduce. Simply create a pattern in Pattern bank 4, pattern 8 for example, then dump the whole machine, and merge it to another one.

    I also tried with SynthTool 1.36 ... same results.

      Nigel67 Hi Andreas. I have just heard from the designers. this bug was fixed and is incorporated into the new synthtool app that was released about 21 hours ago. Many thanks
      • August 25, 2020
      • SynthTool with TD-3: "Merge" always only imports 49 patterns (instead of 64)
        graesserph Awesome! Tried it with SynthTool 2.4.1, and works like a charm. Thank you so much.
        Also great to see that you've incorporated the RD-6 in the SynthTool. So there's still hope for the RD-8 to get its place as well .
        In any way, I'm seriously impressed. It's great to see a community where you get "real" answers by people who obviously care. Thank you!

    Is there a way to save the Clock Source setting on the Global page with a Scene save?  We have different scenes that require diffenent Clock Source settings between Internal, AES50A and AES50B.

    0 26
    • CrossWindsTech
      Paul_Vannatto The clock source cannot be saved as part of a scene. But it can be added to a snippet using a text editor. Here are the 2 snippets.

      #4.0# "X32 Slave A" 0 0 0 0 1
      /-prefs/clocksource AES50A
      /-prefs/haflags %0100

      #4.0# "X32 Slave B" 0 0 0 0 1
      /-prefs/clocksource AES50B
      /-prefs/haflags %1000

      Save these as X32SlaveA.snp and XX32SlaveB.snp respectively and import into the snippet list on the X32. If you want to join the snippet to a scene, create a cue and add both scene and snippet on the same line.

    I'm looking to play some live sets with the TD-3 alongside a Drum Machine (The Roland TR-8 to be precise). Eventually I'm looking to incorporate this into my Live DJ Sets and some remix work. 

    Would the XENYX 302 USB be compatible for the 2 Machines? My confusion is that one input on the Audio Interface says 'Line' whilst the other says '2 Track'. If the Interface is compatible, wouldn't 'Line 1' and 'Line 2' be less confusing?

    Thanks

    Some people (including me) have had trouble creating custom boot and lock screens. I had created a "bmp" with all the correct attributes: 

    CustomBoot.bmp:
    - Must be named CustomBoot.bmp
    - Located at the root of the USB drive
    - Bitmap only (.bmp)
    - 8 bit indexed mode (not rgb)
    - Maximum size : 799 x 399 px
    - Minimum size : 10 x 10 px
    - Colours : 256 max (no particular color palette)
    - background color will be 1st colour in customboot.bmp palette
    - boot text color will be 2nd colour of the palette

    CustomLock.bmp:
    - Must be named CustomLock.bmp
    - Located at the root of the USB drive
    - Bitmap only (.bmp)
    - 8 bit indexed mode (not rgb)
    - Maximum size : 799 x 399 px
    - Minimum size : 10 x 10 px
    - Colours : use colour palette embedded of the attached image.
    - don't change the order of the colours
    - use dithering if you want a smooth image

    I used Photoshop and save the files. No Joy. I then used the example files, made a small change and saved it in Photoshop. Still No Joy. I reached out on these forums and was recommend to use Irfanview. These are my conclusions.

    I did a little research. The bmp file format (a microsoft invention) has many different versions. Our mixer (apparently) can't read all versions. Photoshop (at least my version) saves the file with a header the X32 refuses to open. I took my Photoshop edited files and opened them with Irfanview and them promptly saved them (no processing at all). My mixer is now happy to open both the CustomBoot And CustomLock files.

    Conclusion: Save the files with Irfanview

    Hello..

    I have my monitor bus set for my vox, the backing tracks, the other singer, and my guitar. The mix is set to my taste; but, as the all-in-one performer and soundman I need to hear how our mains mix is doing now and then.

    Is there a way to do this with the least hassle? Can I can keep my monitor send as-is, and just make one or two small adjustments on my iPad via "X32-Mix" to put the mains in my IEMs?

    Thanks in advance.

      Paul_Vannatto Change the assignment of the outputs to your IEM from the mixbus pair to the Main LR. Without seeing your scene file, I would hazzard a guess that the change will probably be on the Routing, Out 1-16 screen.

      • Monitor The Mains From Stage w/X32 Rack
        BobbySadler Thank you Paul.. over the years you've been a great resource of knowledge.. I rolled up my sleeves and I think I came up with a good solution using the Preset tab in the Routing pages.
        • July 28, 2020
    • BobbySadler
      BobbySadler I think I came up with a solution within X32-Mix:

      Go to Routing Tab and Create Preset for the Normal Monitoring Setup
      Give it a Name
      Go to LR buss Sends and Send to Matrix 1 (I chose 0 dB)
      Go to back to Routing Tab and Set my Monitor Output to Matrix 1
      Create another Preset w/Name to indicate monitoring the Mains

      now it should be as simple as pulling up the Routing Tab on X32-Mix and go to the Presets Tab and and switch presets to either my regular monitoring setup or the monitoring the mains setup.

      I will set this to solved; but feel free to comment and make suggestions.

      Cheers and stay healthy!

    Hello, new user trying to understand some basic signal flow through the XR18, I have attached a PDF with three screenshots showing faders and where I think they are on the block diagram if a more experienced user could take a look and see if I am on the right track that would be greatly appreciated. One additional question is where the green labeled FX returns tie in on the block diagram.  Thanks in advance.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Wade, first 2 are correct. The third (Pan) is not correct. Channel pan is in the CH 1-16 signal strip , far right (PAN LR). FX Returns are a separate signal strip below the CH 1-16 and Stereo LINE IN LR strips.
      • Jun 12

      WadeGibbs Paul, thanks for the response, on the fx returns I couldn't see the forest for the trees. In the Main Stereo section where is the Balance fader in the block diagram. Thanks Wade
      • Jun 12

      Paul_Vannatto Using X-Air Edit, the balance control is just above the scribble strip on the Main LR strip (far right), just like the pan control on a standard channel strip.
