    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,

    Any intention of updating the Behringer X-Air / MIDAS M-Air drivers to the latest iteration of your TCAT drivers (5.12) used by your other products (Behringer UMCs) ?

    This would allow for multi-WDM outputs and inputs, which is long overdue...

    Regards,

    Giaco

    UPDATE :
    Updates were pulled both for the X-Air and M-Air series to the latest driver revision !
    Thank you to whoever did this at Music Tribe HQ !

    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

    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 38
    • 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 am using a Midas 32R. Input 9 seems to be the only working channel when I plug in an SM58. The other working channels are wireless recivers programmed into Inputs 1 and 2.

      GaryHiggins Perhaps you can post your scene/setup using Dropbox or similar, or explain your routing with a bit more detail.
      • September 29, 2020
    • ElsaObenza
      DavidKnighton Hello Elsa Obenza,
      As Gary suggests, if you could drop your current scene in a share folder and provide the link here, then we can investigate any potential routing errors. With the variety of routing options for the M32 consoles, there's a number of ways you can get tripped up if you're not familiar with how to look for them. You can start by checking the HOME/INPUTS tab in ROUTING menu. The LOCAL inputs will be from the rear of the console. AES50 inputs will be from a stage box.

    Good morning,

    I have a 2nd hand Behringer Xenyx 2442USB which suddenly stopped to work. The problem is that now, power LED is blinking and the mixer seems "rebooting" infinitely. As long as I already opened the console multiple time (to fix some other issues such as the JRC4580 amps killed by a bad external hardware), I want to repair it myself.

    At the beginning, can I run the PSU alone (not connected to the board, for voltage output testing)? I've inspected the PSU, seems that there is no IC for command, but still want to be sure before testing. And what I should expect as voltage output? (+/-15V, 5V, 48V like X1222USB or something else?) Is there any doc about the connector pins?

    Then, is there any common issue with these PSU that would lead to this problem? At this time I'm expecting to replace the BD239 & BD240 transistors (in cold side), but not sure if I should also replace filtering capacitors in the cold side (there is no visible damage in the board).

    Thanks in advance for help.

      Hi there we would advise raising a Service ticket via the support tab above for a non warranty repair.

      manoaratefy Finally solved the problem.
      - The PSU can be run alone
      - My problem was not due to PSU
      - A short circuit on 0V and -15V pin has been detected on the main board. The problem was due to a JRC4580 chip in channel 6 which short-circuited the 0V and -15V. Simple replacement of the chip solved my issue.

    Hi ! 

    I'va a problem on my X2442. On stereo channels 9/10 and 11/12 the Gain control doesn't work. If I try to turn fully clockwise, I hear just a white noise increasing, but the source sound doesn't change in level. I've connected a digital piano and a digital synth, no FX enabled. What can I try to verify? The fader controls work fine.

    Thanks!

      RexBeckett Hi lucattani, the user manual for the X2442USB seems to explain that the gain control on channels 9/10 and 11/12 only affects the Mic (XLR) input. This is strange but apparently what the designers intended. See attached clipping about the stereo channels from page 8 of the user manual.

      If they are spare, you could use channels 13/14 and 15/16 which do have functioning gain controls for line-level inputs. Otherwise you would need to adjust the output level on the source devices.

    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.

        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!
