    First timer here, so please be candid but patient.

    I just bought a X1204USB (like, today) and started messing around with it. I connected my mp3 player into the 2-track/USB jacks and I can hear it fine with the phones, and the VU meter senses it alright, but I can't record it in the computer!

    Looking around on the Internet (not here) I've found people saying it's normal, with no further explanation. Am I doing something wrong or the 2-track/USB isn't supposed to get recorded? If so, what's its purpose?

      AndrewLuck There's some logic behind the routing of the x1204USB's 2-Track / USB functionality that will help to understand.



      The first thing you should understand is that you can only play back music via the USB or the 2-track RCA input on that bus. I assume your MP3 player is connected to that RCA input.



      Next, there are two red 2-track/USB buttons for routing the output of the playback through the Main Mix or the Ctrl Room output. One is located in the "Source" box for the Ctrl Room selection. The other is directly about the volume dial for the Headphones/Ctrl room output to the right of that "Source" box.



      When these buttons are pushed in, it allows for playback of the 2-track OR the USB input from your computer. When out, this will allow you to record the signal flowing through the Main Mix output. Assure your Main Mix faders are up and you are receiving a healthy signal.



      The problem this is presenting is that you are not able to playback the 2-track input and record simultaneously.



      There's a simple solution for recording your MP3 player. You should utilize a stereo 1/8" to dual 1/4" cable, to input in one of the stereo channels, such as 5/6 or 7/8.



      Utilizing one of these stereo outputs will allow you to play back through the Main Mix output while the red 2 track / USB button is in the up/off position. (in recording mode) This will allow you to record and playback simultaneously!

      InactiveUser looks like there is no way to have 2tracks(or USB) AND Console on the control output at the same time so ? can't hear already record track + input of mixer while only recording mixer then ?



      Should be specifically note on userGuide coé saying '2 tracks can be switch either on control or main mix' does not mean mixer is disconnected from control while tracks is switched to control.... :'( guess no solution except buying one with matrix input on control output then ?

      Ash,



      The 2 track/USB input to the mixer, is the only output that cannot be routed back into the USB to the computer. This is specifically designed to prevent a horrible feedback loop. Typically, you won't want to record the computers output, back into it's input. To record any external source, use any of the inputs, just not the RCA 2 track inputs.



      We hope this helps!

      InactiveUser I thing you misunderstand me... I don't want to loop back USB/2track From PC to Console and back to PC for recording... I'm just saying that the Q802USB can EITHER send 2TRACK_in/USB_in OR mixer1/8 to CONTROL output but not both at the same time.



      MAIN MIX output of course should and must remain from mixer1/8 ONLY, as it's the output to 2TRACK_inout/usb_out



      But In CONTROL output, I would have like to be able to hear pre record tracks from USB_in/2TRACK_in AND mixer1/8 at the same while MAIN MIX output keeps only mixer 1/8 to 2TRACK_out/USB_out...



      In other world "matrix input to controm output"... IN Q802USB documentation, it is just saying that "2TRACK_in/usb_in can be switch either CONTROL output OR MAIN MIX output" That's nice, I Understand that ! BUT it was not clearly specify in Q802USB that you will have to 'choice' between 2TRACK_in/usb_in OR mixer1/8 for Control Output. See the difference ? Now I Have to use another personnal mixer to "mix" CONTROL ouput AND MAIN MIX output to be able to listen to mixer1/8 AND pre record trackers from 2TRACK_IN/USB_IN...



      I thing you should clearly specify that point on Q802USB documentation that it's not a MATRIX INPUT in CONTROL OUTPUT in order for people like me not to be surprised. I saw clearly specified "matrix inputs for control ouput" in your series but the "small inputs" series are not cleary "NOT MATRIX" specified

    Hi Everyone,

    The X32 features a comprehensive Scene Management system that allows all parameters and settings to be instantly recalled at the touch of a button. The 100 scenes on the X32 can be imported and exported via USB Stick and parameters can be eliminated from Recall using the SAFE options. In this Tech Talk we will go into detail about how to use the SCENES menu on the X32.

    Scenes vs. Shows: Know The Difference
    Scene - A scene is a single file containing a snapshot of the settings of the X32. When saving a scene, all parameters are ALWAYS saved. Upon recall, you have the options to "Safe", or prevent, certain parts of the scene from being recalled.

    Shows - A Show File contains the 100 scenes that fill the slots of the X32's scene memory. Only a single show file can be loaded on the X32 at a time.
    *NOTE: When recalling a SHOW from USB, ALL scene files on the X32 would be overwritten with the scene files from that show.

    Import / Export from USB:
    The X32 allows you to import and export both individual scenes and entire shows. Individual scenes can be saved to USB directly from the SCENES menu. To export a whole show, or to import a scene or show, press UTILITY while viewing the SCENES menu. You can also Copy, Paste, and Delete Scenes while viewing this UTILITY menu.

    Using XControl for Enhanced Scene Management:
    Aside from easy setup and greater control of your mix, XControl software expands the scene capabilities of the X32.
    There are 2 main benefits to using XControl for Scene Management:
    1. 100 More Scenes: When using XControl as an online editor with the console, you have access to a second page of 100 scenes. This means that while using XControl you have 100 internal scenes labeled “Console” PLUS the 100 scenes labeled “XControl” bringing the total scenes available using XControl to 200.
    2. XControl has the ability to insert a scene between two scenes. This allows you to go back and create a space for a new scene at the beginning of the show without having to move all the following scenes down manually. This is particularly useful for theatre use with the X32.

    Scene Safes:
    As stated earlier, Scene Safes will EXCLUDE that parameter from being recalled. For example, when walking into a new venue that has an X32, you could bring in your USB stick and recall your scene but "safe" the routing so that you would not overwrite that venue's routing configuration.
    This means that if you want to recall ALL parameters, all of these boxes need to be unchecked (not orange).

    Descriptions of Safe Parameters:
    "Home" Screen Scene Safes: The safes on this menu are on a scene-by-scene basis. This means that you need to check the desired safe on each scene you plan to recall individually.

    Routing I/O - All settings in the ROUTING menu
    Output Patch - Only the output pages of the ROUTING menu
    Preamp (HA) - Mic Gain and Phantom Power for inputs
    Configuration - Any recallable settings in the SETUP menu such as link preferences, panning mode, and bus pre-configuration
    Chan Process - Channel Strip processing for INPUT channels (starting with phase flip)
    Mix Buses - Mix Bus "Channel Strip" processing
    Effects - All settings within the EFFECTS page
    Talkback - All settings within the Talkback Settings

    The settings on the following pages are global and will apply no matter which scene is recalled:

    "Param Safe" Screen Scene Safes: Allows you to globally safe certain parameters across all input channels and mix buses. Global console safes such as routing and configuration are also found here. For example, if you choose Preamp (HA), then all mic gains would be safe from recall across all input channels.

    "Chan Safe" Screen Scene Safes: Safes all parameters for a specific Channel, AUX / FX Return, Mix Bus, Matrix, DCA Group. This screen also allows you to individually safe any FX slot. One use for this could be the MC's mic at an event featuring multiple acts. You could safe his channel so that as you move through different scenes his mic would be unaffected, even if the scenes you are recalling have different settings for this input channel.

    A Note About Presets vs. Scenes:
    In addition to Scenes, the X32 also features preset libraries. These "presets" are completely independent of scenes and allow you to save your favorite channel strip, routing, and FX settings. These are really handy because they can be loaded at any time and in any scene. This would allow you to save your favorite vocal EQ or routing setups without having to use a scene slot.


    Things to remember when using Scene Management:
    1. If you want to recall all settings, make sure all safe options are UNCHECKED.
    2. The Safes on the Home Screen are set individually, scene by scene. For global safes, use the “Param Safe” and “Chan Safe” pages.

    The X32 as you can see has great flexibility in Scene Management. We hope this Tech Talk will help you better understand and take advantage of these features. As usual, feel free to post your questions here. We will be back next week with another edition of Tech Talk.

      MichaelBerries Will be great improve a "show load" protection by password, from usb



      It is possible to load a particular scene from a Show saved in a usb stick?
      • March 29, 2013
    • JohnDiNicola
      KlausMock A great benefit would be to save/load the global scene safe configuration to/from usb.

      Maybe this can also be part of the show management so that it can be loaded with the show.



      I also like to see a per-scene option to allow me to recall only the main levels and mute states of the channels.

      Think about this scenario. The first scene should load the initial state of the show, which means everything.

      During the show only the main levels and mute states should be loaded to allow me to do some tweaks on the channel processing which should not be overwritten when the next scene is loaded.

      Hi Michael,

      Yes, it is possible to load a particular scene from a "show" saved to USB. When exporting a "show", individual "scene" files are also exported in addition to the "show" file. When viewing the SCENES menu, press UTILITY and you will see the option to import either a Show or Scene.

      It seems to me that there is a small problem with this, if you want to import just one scene from a particular show. The scenes within a show are titled "my show.001" etc., so you don't know what scene it actually is. Is there a way to see the actual name of the scene?

      Hi Mick,

      You are correct that the numbers at the end of the file are the only cue you have when loading individual scenes from an exported show. These numbers will correspond to the scene slot that the scene was originally saved in, (.001 - .100). Once you import a scene back onto an empty scene slot on the X32 (or in XControl), the name of the scene will be displayed in that slot. This at least gives you the chance to see the title before actually accidently pressing GO and loading on the wrong scene.

    So finally LogicPro X has come out. And it doesn't have 32bit Audio Unit Bridge anymore. Which means that for using Powercore one must have LogicPro9 or earlier.
    Which means that Powercore is now thing of a past.

      Well, in case of new Logic there are just so many new things that I personally have missed a lot in Logic (midi fx). New possibilities are always good when making music. It all started from cutting magnetic tape and if we wouldn't have moved forward we'd spend huge amount of time on primitive things.

    I've just finished first rehearsal with my new X4 and I find that the pedal is VERY crippled without a global tap tempo option. It basically limits you to one preset per song unless you want to tap dance every time you want to change a preset.

    The solution shouldn't be hard to implement, global tap tempo which is turned on and off by holding different footswitches simultaneously (or a combination) and which would be active on all delay types except slap.
    We're not talking going in too deep like some other units out there and programming global tap tempo on a preset basis, just a simple on and off option would be fine, I believe I speak for a LOT of fellow guitarists out there who use it live with a band.

    Just a suggestion...

      zvina Ok, I got an official statement from Mr. Nicolas in TC's support. They didn't implement global tap tempo on purpose, for keeping the pedal simple. He also said that if enough users asked for a feature, there's a chance it could be implemented.



      I'll quote a small section of his email: "But I just wanted to advise you and all users that would truly like a feature to be implemented, to say it in the forum."



      So here it is, if you'd want to see global tap tempo implemented in X4, please write it in a post in this thread.



      Thank you
      • January 6, 2013
    • zvina
      pdxfairview As it stands, I think the tap tempo indicator is confusing. Here's why:



      When in delay mode and with the X4 bypassed, the tempo light flashes at some rate. Presumably, one would think that if you activated the delay, that you'd enter at the delay tempo of the flashing light. But in fact, the light serves no useful purpose, as there's no way to access a delay at the tempo of the light (because when you step on any of the A, B, or C presets, you enter at the stored tempo of the preset).



      I think it would make a lot more sense if the tap tempo light were disabled while the X4 is in bypass mode.

      Alternatively, if the tap tempo light is going to flash while in bypass, then A, B, and C presets should activate at the tempo of the light (ie, a global tap tempo function as described above).

    Apple is soon going to release the next version of OS X. Are you working on OS X 10.9. compatibility already, or is it going to take almost an entire year for you to publish a stable release, like what happened with previous OS X versions? The developer preview is available for developers already, so that should be no problem.

    Other manufacturers, like RME, have working drivers for owners of their audio interfaces almost immediately after new OS X releases.

      blksolo While I do appreciate the uploaded patches,I am ASTONISHED by the LACK of patches to be found for the Gmajor2. I just sold my Pod X3 Live specifically to get a Gmajor 2. I can go to the Line 6 website and there are more than 60,000 patches for the X3 Live. Now before everyone flames me I know that 99 percent of those 60,000 are crap,that leaves 1 percent of those patches useable. Thats still 600 patches!!! And we only have 18 for the Gmajor 2??? I looked all over the web and you cant find ANY websites with patches for it. Its like selling a computer and then telling the buyer he has to write and develop his own software for it. Sure I could start developing my own patches,but since I am in a cover band I need 30 or 40 different sounds and dont have the time to program all of those. I figured I could buy the product,hop on to the website and have tons of patches to download,guess I was wrong.On the bright side this thing sounds killer!!!!

      while the new editor makes it very easy to program and modify patches, it totally agree that we need more of them in our vault. So if you guys made some nice patches, you'd like to share just upload them or send them my way. (Preset or Bank files)



      Will upload some more of my own soon and create new ones if i have some time to spare.



      Since i'm a G-system user and don't have a G-Major2 at home my own stock of G-Major 2 patches is a bit limited.



      On a positive note we raised the patch count by over 400% in the last week , so consider this a kick-off. i'll try to motivate our G-Major users here at TC to contribute more patches too, so that the preset vault will hopefully grow much faster.

      As a caution measure I put a 1-1/2" eggcrate foam pad on the inner top of the pedalboard case.



      The SKB is heavy as hell but i have not gotten any loosen toy inside of it yet...:/

      Yes, that is how I have my Nova System attached to my Pedal Train.

      And the soft case lid does close.


      Ah thanks...mine is the original hardcase.

      onestop I'm using a PedalTrain 2 board with hard case and found that after attaching the Nova System to my board (and I'll get to that part in a second), I wasn't able to close the case.



      So I made a flat pedal board to fit in my PT2 case and bingo, fits like a charm!



      As for velcro, I ended up "gently" peeling off the rubber pad off the bottom of the NS and attaching it to a piece of aluminum foil (to save it for later) and slap some velcro right to the bottom of the TC unit. Works like a charm and I've preserved the rubber pad on the bottom.

    My main Volume knob no longer lowers the right channel volume of my main output (or head phones). It controls the left fine. But with the Volume all the way down the right channel is still about 60%. Hardware defect?

      Fabrice Exactly the same problem here, I'm sending the unit back to TC, I suspect a hardware failure, though I'm on a mac and I also had ots of kernel panic and sound saturation...

      very disapointed by this product was expecting a lot ! oh well ,has someone here about the focusrite safire?

      rhythminmind Well i think this is more complicated then it seems.. This unit was working fine for the few months i have had it. Then this issue popped up.. I installed the 2.00 beta driver for PC and it has mostly fixed itself.. when i bring the volume all the way down the right channel is about 1% up (if that makes sense). I think it always responded like that. As soon as i raise the vol up a hair it evens out. I figure that was just the response of an analog pot. But now that i have seen the other problem it seems it's a digital controlled volume. So we need some clarification from TC. Come on guys i wrote up a support ticket for this a few days ago. what is your take on this?

      stereomax I'm experiencing a similar behaviour: when lowering the volume a lot (I have a rather small home studio but rather loud monitors) the right channel drops out while the left channel is still clearly audible. I thought of a problem with the analog volume pot also but reading your post and thinking of it (it's nor that difficult to built a stereo pot, isn't it?) it seems part of the serious software defects of this unit...

      pg I just got the same problem.. And the irony here is that I'm using a REPLACEMENT unit that was given to replace my first unit with exactly the same problem of main volume knob!

      Unfortunately, most likely this replacement unit right now is not going to be covered by the warranty (it was given as replacement last winter).

      The symptoms are not as bad as last time (yet) - when the right channel was simply unbearably loud. This time the problem is that main volume knob just doesn't seem to decrease volume of the right channel to the state of complete silence.. It's unlikely that it's NOT a hardware issue....

      rhythminmind I think i figured it out!

      With my unit it is a bug when using the ch 1/2 on rear inputs. whenever i activate these inputs from the front panel the right channel VOL Knob problem appears.. Can you guys test this out and let me know what happens in your setup..

    Does the BCF2000 control surface work with the XF18? Seems like this might be a natural paring.

      AbrahamRay Yes, but if someone can help us getting it to work in MCU mode, I would appreciate it. Look for other posts from me to describe how it works and how it doesn't work. I had to program it from the midi implementation chart in the quick start guide.

      AndrewShaw Any device that can send the XR18 MIDI commands can control it using the commands found in the link. This of course includes the FCB. Here is a link to the MIDI commands the XR18 responds to:

      Abraham, I wasn't aware that the XR18 or even the X32 responded to Mackie control. I don't see any reference to it on the Wiki either. Could you provide a link?

      MIDI In/Out for Live Performance Controllers



      The physical MIDI I/O port on the XR18 mixer can also be used for connecting external MIDI controllers, such as our X-TOUCH or B-CONTROL products, for dynamically controlling channel level, muting and panorama adjustments during your performance. And since the full-featured XR18 also supports the Mackie Control protocol, you easily apply comprehensive remote editing and parameter adjustments via any compatible MIDI devices.

      Could someone from Behringer comment on if this is true or not?

      AndrewShaw Not sure if you're aware of this, but it looks like Klaus has gotten the BCF to work with X32:
