      joanba Same problem than previous version: selecting direct monitoring some channels and DAW main outs are muted. Soloing DAW main outs I can recover the sound but it disables direct monitoring. So I cannot play an instrument at same time than hearing music. I can provide you with two screenshots to clarify the problem.

    Dear X-Air users,

    As you may already know all X-Air apps were updated to v1.5 and a new v1.15 firmware.

    Report any reproducible problems about specific v1.5 related issues here. Bug reports listed elsewhere may go unnoticed.

    Please list all of the steps to reproduce an issue, even if they may seem obvious. Don't forget to list the technical details and setup useful to reproduce the issue.

    Problems reported here may or may not be officially acknowledged, however all reports will be looked at.

    It is important to keep this issues tracking thread as clean as possible so posts that deviate too much from the intention of this thread will be moved/deleted without any notice from the moderators to keep it as clean as possible.

    If you are uncertain if something is a bug/issue or not you are encouraged to start and keep extended discussions of the specifics in a separate thread in the troubleshooting or feature request section of this forum and just include a link to that discussion in this thread with a brief summary.

    Enjoy!

      - crashes as soon as you put in IP address and hit enter.



      - compressor and gate envelope parameters not fixed



      - channel fader send level digits not working when you send on any BUS (digits same as bus level but not channel level). Working properly on MAIN only.



      - when scrolling to view the last fader channel it keeps snapping back to make the first channel on the screen left-aligned. As a result, you can't see the last fader in full unless you keep scrolling over and try to hold it there.



      - no longer possible to scale the channels to a narrow view, so you can see 16 channels at once (can view only 8 channels at a time)



      - on X-air12, the phantom power and gain fader are missing on channels 1 and 2.



      - changes made on eq, gate or dynamics are not shown in main view



      - changes made on the high-pass filter are not shown in the eq graphics.



      - colors of the faders don't change with the chosen color of the master



      - the 'page' + icons are missing so it's not possible to create presets



      - Gate & Dyn Hold and Releases are displaying values as if they were linear parameters, but they're log - so the displayed values are wrong.

      Yes, it was my fault. My sincerest apologies to those posts that were deleted, it was an unintentional mistake on my part and wasn't able to be undone.



      Also just a quick heads up, X AIR V1.5.1 for iPad is now available in the iTunes App Store and it addresses some of the problems raised already to our developers. We will continue to put out new releases taking other problems/suggestions into consideration in the future, stay tuned for details.



      Thanks so much to everyone for providing this feedback as it is so critical in the improving of our current software/app offerings!

      I am having the same problem with the BCD3000 on windows 8. I can't see a driver for it on the product page you suggested? and the windows 7 driver does not function properly after installing. Do you know of any way to get the controller to function properly on windows 8?

    I love my g-system but the difficulty in getting it set up and the lack of firmware fixes and tech support now means that faced with purchasing another TC Electronic product, I'm struggling to commit. I keep looking elsewhere, Eventide, CIOKS, Focusrite to name but a few.

    I'd like to buy an impact 2 audio interface but if it has any problems, I know I'm stuffed for the foreseable future so despite it's specs, I'm leaning towards a focusrite.

    I've seen that TC make a power supply, overdrive and decent modulation FX but now I've lived with the G, I only expect problems.

    I'm not a fan of TC's usability but I thought they sounded great so I was prepared to learn. After living with the G, I don't just reach for the manual when I get stuck, I look to the web to find out if the problem I have is a feature or limitation, or yet another firmware bug.

    Does anyone else feel the same?

    I thought I'd post the question because I think TC need to know what affect ignoring its users could have on future sales. It's a competitive world at the moment and I'm sure there are plenty of firms that would be happy to take a chunk of market share away from TC.

      Bread If you think the G System is bad you should try owning a Pod HD Daryl



      I've had my G System nearly a year and just got my head around it - I still think its awesome but like you, I get the feeling TC Electronics are not giving the attention to it in terms of firmware upgrades it deserves. Maybe it's because the hardware is end of life or they have a new product to launch - who knows but I would at least expect some information from them on what is happening development wise.



      It's going to be a tough thing to replace - what else is there that beats it ? If there is a pedal like the modfactor that is worth having why not just put it in one if the loops ?
      • January 7, 2013
    • DarylSoar1
      DarylSoar1 I thought PODs were generally bullet proof. Did it have a habit as bad as failing to recall the FX settings for a patch like the G-System does when switching between 2 patches with a harmonizer?



      The Eventide modfactor would not be a consideration if the G-System worked how it should because I would choose the TC Nova Modulator.



      The Focusrite Saffire 24 wouldn't be a choice, if the G-System was properly supported, I'd buy the TC Impact Twin. Computer interfaces are notoriously problematic thanks to the need to update computer operating systems so the one thing you NEED to know is that any manufacturer will be quick to respond should a problem arise.



      I love the way my G-System sounds, now I have a Sunday Driver and and Ebtech HE-2, but it should sound good without all the difficulties. I mean, what kind of decision process decides that a meter for damping is more important than an input meter for the second DSP, and then decides that the way to indicate an overload on the second DSP is to light up the red LED on the input meter?



      I just hope TC pick up on this thread and realise the potential damage their inaction could have on future sales. I don't think any of us expect miracles but updates on bug fixes and a slightly more frequent firmware update shouldn't be too much to hope for.



      Any one else got an opinion?



      I'd love to help TC, as I'm sure so many of us on the forum would, to get them develop a decent user interface that is easy, intuitive and provide access to all the parameters of the FX without alienating ordinary users that haven't owned professional gear before.

      damcka I think we all feel your pain to a degree. Although having read your posts,



      it would appear that you have had more problems with your particular set up than others.



      Having said that. The fact that we rely so heavily on lairds white paper, or that he even had to write it in the first place is testament to how tc electronic have pretty much abandoned users of the g system. We are, of course very grateful that laird did write his paper, as most people would have abandoned the unit in pure frustration without it.



      He fact that there is no usuable editor for a piece of equipment that cost so much is nothing short of disgraceful.



      For a piece of gear aimed at professionals and coming with the price tag - I don't think it is too much to ask that there is a firmware update that at the very least fixes existing bugs (all of them) or better still have an update that adds some new features that we, the user community, have suggested.



      If the g system brain is maxed out an no more features can be added, it would be nice to have a message to that effect. Instead....nothing.



      Tore from TC used to be fairly active on the forum...but in general tc representatives have been absent from the forum for quite time, who knows why.



      The g system is a great piece of gear, I love it. My fear is that I've purchased a turkey - something that on the face of it is brilliant but lack of any support from the manufacturer, or a willingness to resolve existing problems makes it "dead man walking".



      I pray that I never have any software problems with my g system. I haven't even upgraded to 4.05 as it involves connecting the damn thing to a computer, which is a recipe for disaster.



      Maybe you should rename your thread, "is the g system dead?"



      I really hope the answer to that question is no.....but perhaps tc would pay more attention to that title.....or maybe not.



      Big sigh.......

    • DarylSoar1
      zippy Did the newer version come with software that fixed any of the bugs? I have the original silver one. If they come out with new models ocasionally, that might be the extent of the planned updates.



      It's an odd business model. It makes me think the staff of this company works very part time.

      Bread Among the PODs bad habits were sounding utter garbage at gig volumes, no global eq, the wah coming on for no reason at all, unreliable ..... And so forth.

    There is still a little loss of gain. I placed an Eq in the loop of the G system to try and compensate but it can only ad a bit before it sounds bad. When I turn my gain up past 2 o clock the hum and hiss is really bad and it becomes very noisy. I am trying to get that true tone out of the amp I am close but still a loss of gain/tone.

    I just put in George L cables in my setup and it sounds better!

      GuitarMan86 I can say my experience has been the same on the MESA Trip rect. I have been researching the FX loop side and found that many others are having similiar issues with the FX loop on other processors.

      Check out MESA's forums.



      There is a simple FX mod out there that MESA will provide you with (if you ask) that is the schematic for modifying the FX loop from parallel to serial.



      My experience has been the same and I just got the MOD schematic yesterday from MESA and plan to have my amp guy do the mod for me asap.

      I also spoke with Voodoo amps about the mod and they can also give you some insight to the mod for a triple rect.



      As others have said... the FX loop is best with serial and I believe the MESA triple has issues with bleed through on the parallel effects loop.



      I will post my findings once I get my mod done. Hope this helps.
      • May 6, 2009
    • kevin2106
      kevin2106 I have heard that serial can also pose a lot of issue's as well .I keep messing around with levels and have actually solved almost all issue's and have a tone that I actually really enjoy now. My issue was the cables I was using. Now I am using George L's. made a few adjustments and now the amp sounds the way I like it! The only thing is you have to play the amp pretty loud.
      • May 7, 2009
    • kevin2106
      GuitarMan86 Interesting....I see you are running the mix settings on the MESA loop to 100%....I am as well. Do you have any bleed through of the dry signal coming out?



      Thats the tone loss I seem to be getting from the MESA. I can hear the difference with the parallel loop giving me that bleed through of the wet and dry signal.



      If you hit the tuner mute on the G does it fully mute the amp (with 4 cable method) or do you get the dry amp tone still coming through? Just curious



      I am using good cables (TRS snakes) and also have an EBtech HE and not getting any noise issues. Now its just the tone I am fighting with.
      • May 7, 2009
    • kevin2106
      kevin2106 Yes I do get that dry amp tone still coming through with the four cable method when I hit the tuner mute.



      I had the same issue you have. Something just wasn't right and I was getting a clean tone with some distortion at the same time. I did get rid of it though now everything sounds great!



      How do you have everything hooked up? Did you try the way I have my setup hooked up?

    After some frustrating experience in trying to get a volume and an expression pedal to work smoothly with the G, and after some partly misleading advice from TC's support (http://forum.tcelectronic.com/viewtopic.php?id=3942) I did some experimenting.

    For my testing I used an Ernie Ball VP Jr EB-6180 pedal that has a 250k pot and an EB-6181 that has a 25k pot. Both pedals are mono, and both have standard mono input and output jacks. I connected these pedals to the pedal jacks of the G's control board using either mono cables connected to the pedal's output jack or y-split cables connected to their input and output. I use the pedal hooked to the G's Volume jack for controlling the unit's global output volume and the one connected to the Expression jack for controlling different parameters depending on the current preset.

    This is what I found out:

    - In the G's "digital" world, where both pedals reside, there is nothing like a continuous parameter change. Everything happens in discrete steps. The question is how many steps there are, and if they are audible as steps (which is clearly unwanted).

    - According to the G's manual mono pedals should be connected using only one cable attached to the output connector. When I did this using the 25k pedal (which TC's support recommended to me) and perform the pedal calibration this gave me a range from 0 to 10, i.e., only 11 discrete volume or expression steps. When you want to control a volume parameter this is completely useless as every increase or decrease is clearly audible as a step. Thus the "recommended" procedure had the worst result.

    - Connecting the same 25k pedal with a y-split cable gave me a calibration range from 0 to 44 and a much "smoother" pedal action.

    - Using the 250k pedal with only one cable gave me a calibration range from 0 to about 60.

    - Finally, using the 250k pedal with a y-split cable resulted in a calibration range from 0 to 95, that means 96 discrete volume or expression steps.

    - Using the 250k pedal + y-cable setup for controlling output volume still does *not* give you "seamless" volume swells (and there is always some lag), but it is useful as a master volume control and it is the best that I could get out of the pedals for controlling output volume. For swells it might be preferable to use the pedal connected to the Expression jack for controlling the volume parameter of one of the effects (e.g., the output volume of the compressor if the swell is intended to occur before the preamp).

    - From my subjective listening experience I found the limited number of steps much more annoying in case of the output volume parameter than in case of expression parameters (e.g., in wha-wha effects). I also had the impression that there is considerably less lag in the G's response to the pedal connected to the Expression jack.

    - The manual talks about volume and expression pedals. I think that this is somewhat misleading. Instead we should talk about low and high impedance pedals and about linear and non-linear response curves (as a matter of fact you can use the pedals connected to both jacks for modifying any parameter in the G's Modifyer setup). Selecting pedal type as Volume or Expression in the G's pedal menue affects the unit's response curve, but has nothing to do with the type of pedal that you actually connect (just trust your ears!). BTW: A very useful feature of the EB-6180 250k pedal is that it has a taper swich which modifies the shape of the response curve.

    - The G does not have any setup parameter (beyond the pedal type parameter) for "fine tuning" the response curve of the global output volume parameter. You can nevertheless achieve this by "cheating" the calibration (i.e., by using minimum or maximum values other than those with the pedal in the toe or in the heel position).

    That's about all that I found out. From my testing I would recommend using high impedance pedals connected with y-split cables for both jacks of the G.

      LorenzG Hi,



      Thanks for your review! What is the disadvantage of Low-Impendance Pedals? e.g. with the Boss Pedals: a 500-H or a 500-L



      Thank you!

      There are 4 jacks - and there is some evidence that the wiring/setup needs for the Foot Controller jacks is different than that for the GFX-01 jacks. Did you look into this at all?

      elvis avoelp: Valuable information - thanks! Interfacing pedals with the G seems to be one of the most difficult things to do.



      I disagree with one point, though. I don't think that the numbers displayed during calibration are the number of discrete steps. That is unlikely, both because the ADC that measures the travel of the pedal is most likely 8-12 bits (256 to 4096 steps) at the minimum, as well as the fact that 11 discrete steps would be VERY noticeable. My expression pedal calibrates as 0-10, and it does not sound at all quantized.



      I would guess (pending Tore's confirmation) that the number displayed is probably arbitrary, maybe an indicator of % of total possible calibration range or something like that. In that case, the number of discrete steps is likely in excess of 30, and may be as much as 400 or more, for a max calibration level of 10 (assuming 100=100% of total steps).



      The most difficult thing for the Gsystem to handle would be a logarithmic pot (almost all of them are). Assuming a volume taper (log base 10) that is linear in dB over the travel, and has 100dB range, the halfway point would be -50dB, or 1/316 of maximum. The bottom half of the pedal travel is only 0.3% of the available ADC codes. That would give 0 codes in the bottom half or travel for 8 bits, and 3 codes with 10 bits, even with a max calibration value of 100. This suggests that the ADC may be closer to 16 bits (65536 total codes), as most people seem to get reasonable response with log pots. This is reasonable, as many inexpensive microcontrollers have built-in 16 bit converters.



      To keep this stuff in one place, there was a thread about connecting pedals a while back (avoelp helped on that one, too):

      LorenzG Did you try your Boss 500H with a usual Stereo Cable as explained here: http://support.tcelectronic.com/entries/20981617-g-system-which-type-of-pedal-to-use

      raphael I use two Boss FV500H with balanced/TRS cables. The G-system detected 50 steps (0 to 50) during calibration. It works fine, I have no complaints. Even the octave whammy seems plenty smooth to my ear.

    Since TC Electronic has not made any way to share presets for individual patches on the G System, let's all post in this thread.

    To take a screenshot of your settings:
    1. select the correct patch and the "all" effect view in the Vyzor editor,
    2. press the PRINT SCREEN button (copies an image to your desktop)
    3. open an image editor (the Paint program works fine) and "paste" the desktop image into the editor (crop if you want).
    4. save it as a JPEG
    5. upload it somewhere (i.e. photobucket, unless you can just attach it in the forum)
    6. POST!

    *be sure to include what you are running in the loops, if your amp's distorted, and a little description of the sound.


    NOTE: If the pic comes up TOO SMALL to make out the numbers when posted, simply click on the MAGNIFYING GLASS with 100% written next to it in the lower-left of the browser screen to elarge it! This works PERFECTLY!
    Or, save the image to your computer. It will be saved from the source URL, which is large enough to let you see everything clearly.

      gbtommasi well,



      for example, like this:

      http://www.uploading.com/files/0J31L7FK/just_to_try.SQS.html



      i know it's not the easier way, but it allows to put all the patches you want to share into a sqs file (up to 200 presets) and have other people download it easily, and just copy to their system the presets they prefer.



      Until TC creates a public space to share presets, i think this is quite a good solution!

      6GunSound Hey All



      You're welcome to use my forum for this at www.tcgpage.com



      At least there we can categorize the posts instead of having a huge unorganized thread. The sqs file idea is great, but I'll be doing most of this the old school way until I get a laptop. Too much of a pain to drag all my gear in and hook it up to the computer. There may be others who are in my situation as well. I'd say using both methods would be ideal. I plan on using askman's screen dump idea to repost the patches already in the tcgpage library.



      BTW, love the Cascade patch.

    Hi, on the XR18 download page there are the new ASIO Driver 4.11 X-USB drivers but they do not work with XR18. Why?

    • MirkoPaganelli
      Paul_Vannatto Hi Mirko,



      Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately there was a mixup with the drivers when they were posted. The X-USB drivers is for the X32 not the XR18. But you can get the correct drivers on the X18 page (http://www.music-group.com/Categories/Behringer/Mixers/Digital-Mixers/X18/p/P0AWZ/downloads).

      KenMitchell Paul,



      The 4.11 driver at the link you provided is the exact same file that's under XR18 so it doesn't work either.

      Paul_Vannatto Thanks Ken for the report. When I posted it, the driver was correct. Evidently someone is changing things - for the worse, not the better. Hopefully it will get straightened out soon. (grrrr)
      • June 8, 2017
    • MirkoPaganelli
      Paul_Vannatto Wow! That was a fast fix. It is now showing the correct drivers on the X18 downloads page (the link above).
