    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.

        Bobby Sadler 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.
        • Jul 28
    •  Bobby Sadler
      Bobby Sadler 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!

    Hi all,

    I have a Fender Strato connected on a Hi-Z input of a XR12 via a PRO DI box removing a big part of the noise but not all of it.

    I could remove almost 100% of what was remaining with a noise gate.

    All good except when the sound of the guitar fades out, the sound kind of breaks and is not a nice continuous fading out sound.

    I have uploaded a screen shot of the noise gate.

    Any suggestion ?

    Thank you for your help

      Rex Beckett It can be difficult to tune a Gate so that you don't hear it operate. I would try either turning off the Side Chain Filter or setting it to a wider bandwidth. For high-frequency noise (hiss) you could try setting it to HC12 with a higher Frequency. If the noise is low-frequency (hum), you could try LC12 with a lower Frequency. You want the gate to be triggered open by any note but not noise. It may also help to extend the Release time.

      Saleya Thank you Rex for taking the time. I will try that this evening and let you know.

      Saleya Rex, definitely some improvements playing with the Side Chain Filter, but, as you mentioned, no 100% perfect when the sound fades away, but at this level, it might not even be audible in real life. Anyway, playing with the frequencies I found this essential website : https://www.zytrax.com/tech/audio/audio.html One must know where to cut (gate, equalizer, ...) according to the instrument on the channel.

    Hi Tribe, After about a year my XR-18 developed a powering on issue. I might say I noticed it more when the unit is cold. (Like 0-5 Celsius as Australia is not a particularly cold place) Flip the power switch and nothing. Wiggled cables, different cables, cleaning terminals etc... have been tried. When this happens I simply leave it switched on for a few minutes and it happily greets me a few minutes later. Obviously it needs it's coffee or something. (I wondered whether there's an overheat safety switch that's playing up) Any similar experiences or thought? Cheers, Luke

      Rex Beckett I have a distant memory of someone reporting a similar problem on the old forum. They had issues when using an XR18 for outdoor events in cold weather. It may not be a hardware fault as the specification shows the operating temperature range as 5-40 Celsius.

  • Is there any way to limit the access of a particular tablet to parts of the x32 mixer. I would like only allow the tablet access to the main faders and indivual channel EQ. It's used in a church for mostly speaking with no aux sends or monitors. I've looked all over for this kind of thread, to no avail. Or, can someone point me to the thread if this has been asked/answered previously.

      @DouglasLohman 


      Hi Douglas, the only way I can think of to do this is to run Mixing Station XM32 Pro on the tablet and create a custom layout with only the allowed controls. It would be hard to make it foolproof but it would guard against accidental changes to other parameters.

      If you had a budget you could use a control processor and touch panel, such as an Extron or Crestron based system, to design your own and control certain aspects of the mixer. I'm not sure how broad the x32's API is but its certainly a possible option.

    Got my Crave a few hours ago and i´m experiencing ghost trigs on rest steps.

    Means even if you do a pattern with only rest steps, you get tiny trigs which trigger the envelope. 

    Makes the sequencer useless for programming the simplest patterns. 

     

    On top the Mix (Noise / External Audio) is bleeding into the signal path. Both, external audio an noise will be in the signal path slightly, even when turned of. 

     

    I´m on 1.0.6 and somehow i think this could be solved though firmware ... 

     

    I´ve done a ticket to get a proper answer for this trig issue.

      I'm in the exact same situation!


      Ghost triggers under 1.06 on the rest steps. I have two Craves, both have the same issue.


      Please help!

      Hi there,


      I reported that as bug already, although I returned my Crave yesterday.


       


      You should do that too, since lowering decay time decreases the effect as Eduard said in the facebook group.

      That's a great reference mic. It is available at most online music or audio stores such as here. I did see the spec sheet online not too long ago. If I come across it again, I'll add the link.

    Hi, I have an X32 rack.. the other day channels 1-8 have stopped working, on all 8 channels it is registering a small signal/interference but no input signal. Channels 9-16 appear fine... I have googled this and it seems it’s happened to a fair few... any ideas? Also, how do I contact Behringer direct? Thank you

    I am currently using X32 Rack (Main input), X32 Console (FOH) and this forum helped me with the routing of both systems. I am live streaming and I want to be able to take the inputs from the rack and send to M32c in the manner as I send to the X32 console is that possible? Below is how I am routed currently if I have to take S32 rack out of the mix to make this work I will any suggestions? I forgot to add the goal of all of this is so the M32c can have the ability to mix the inputs from the rack independently for live streaming X32Rack AES A to DL32 AES A FOH X32 AES A to X32 Rack AES B FOH AES B to S32 AES A X32 Rack routing to send audio to X32 Console

      Rex Beckett I would place the M32C between the X32 Rack and the FOH X32. Set the AES50 routing on the M32C to pass all the inputs on each port to the outputs on the other one. The M32C can take its inputs from whichever AES50 port is connected to the X32 Rack.

        Jsun Tyler Thanks Rex can you layout a routing outline how I posted mine? I am a visual person
        • Jun 20
    • Jsun Tyler
      Rex Beckett The AES50 routing for the M32C would look like the attached. The connections could be:

      S32 (A) <-> (B) FOH X32 (A) <-> (B) M32C (A) <-> (B) X32 Rack (A) <-> (A) DL32

      • X32 Rack, X32 Console and M32c Live Stream Routing Possibility
        Jsun Tyler Is the M32c an upgrade in audio quality to the x32 rack? If it is would it make sense to use the M32c and the DL32 for as the master inputs and then use the rack for streaming?
        • Jun 22
      • X32 Rack, X32 Console and M32c Live Stream Routing Possibility
        Rex Beckett There is no difference in audio quality between the M32C and X32 Rack - as far as digital processing is concerned. If you are not using any of the Rack's local analogue inputs/outputs, you could exchange the M32C and X32 Rack if you wanted to but it would not change the audio quality. Personally I would keep the Rack for monitors. If for nothing else, the meters page is useful during setup and for trouble-shooting.

      • X32 Rack, X32 Console and M32c Live Stream Routing Possibility
        Jsun Tyler Thanks again the s32 was the snake for FOH incase we needed long distance connections and that has not been the case. If I was to connect the s32 to M32c how would that effect the routing that we have been working on? Which means FOH would be console only, S32 connected to M32c and Rack connected to DL32 with M32c being the middle part of the chain
        • Jun 22
    • Jsun Tyler
      Jsun Tyler Ok I got nervous and did not want to change how my routing was setup because my live audio is primary. What I decided to do was in the original setup just replace the s32 slot with the m32c and connectI the m32c to the s32. I have port b of x32 foh going to port a of m32c. I have port b of m32c going into port a of s32. I want to be able to use the s32 as tihe output source for m32c. I have input signal coming fine but testing output from s32 and I have no signal. Thanks in advance for your help
      • Jun 23
      • X32 Rack, X32 Console and M32c Live Stream Routing Possibility
        Rex Beckett So you have changed the AES50 routing on the X32 FOH to forward all the inputs from port A to port B for use by the M32C (through AES50-A)? Which of the M32C outputs do you want on the S32? You may need to share your current M32C scene if you want help with the routing.
        • Jun 23
      • X32 Rack, X32 Console and M32c Live Stream Routing Possibility
        Jsun Tyler I got lucky and got it to work, I have port B of FOH into port A of M32c A, port B of M32c to port A of S32. So now the chain goes Rack, FOH to M32C. Figuring out the output routing on M32C was weird but I got it. Thanks as always for your help
