    Dear engineers, we need to be able to delay the inputs, but above all the outputs of the XAir xr18 .... Could you include this indispensable function in the next firmware update? Thank you!

      DanielPaine I'll pass on the request. It is not implemented simply because of the size of the mixer. It's format suggests applications primarily in smaller rooms where delay requirements are negligible. I agree though. Handy to have if to deploy outside or for larger venues

      ubdrummer Hi, but it's size and format suggests it also in applications like live online streaming - and therefore I need a delay to sync the sound out of the XR18 with the cams. Thanks for passing on this request - I'd like uphold it. Greetings

      DanielPaine It's a valid point. I'll pass to R&D again with that perspective. Many thanks

      SidTheSoundGuy Product is six years old. Delay on output is trivial to code and implement and should have been there on day 1. I guess when mediocrity is paying the bills there’s no need or desire to strive for excellence. What a missed opportunity - the form factor is appealing.

    Hi, we are interested in purchasing a Wing, however, are needing Dante and MADI.  A couple of questions regarding this.

    1.  Is there an estimated release date for the Dante card and MADI card?

    2.  It appears that Dante will be in the form of a card that fits within the Wing.  Is this something we have to have installed by Behringer at time of purchase, or can we add the card later ourselves?  This will determine whether we can purchase today or need to wait until a Wing with Dante built-in is released.

    Thanks!

      HI @EddieWettach ,


       


      1. No ETA announced yet. 


       


      2. It is my understanding from hearing Jan Dua discuss it, Dante and SoundGrid will be implemented on internal cards that will be installed at the factory or by an authorized service center.  The internal card would save the external slot for other uses and would share the existing RJ45 ports on the Wing. .  There will also be an external card for Dante, SoundGrid, MADI, etc. that can be isntalled by the user.  Again, haven't seen nor heard a schedule yet.

      @EddieWettach Just a bit of other info. I believe there was a very early on post, right after the Wing release and pre 1.01-either here or on facebook that someone put an XDante card in their wing and it worked-but being only 32 ch's not 48. The USB audio card access is not from the external card slot like with an X32 so I can almost see that it might work with both things not on a single card. I have one not installed at the moment but not so sure I dare try it! Besides this 64 ch Wing-Live card is really awesome! Specially since the new firmware you can now sync both. I think if it were me, I would opt for the user installable version allowing me the option to use either without outside service help. It also makes some sense to me that the user installed Dante card option might come out first but who knows.

      @EddieWettach Hi Eddie, just happened to watch a recent (Behringer released) Wing video at time 6:04 or so they talk about the Dante external card, sounds like it's first up and very close to release.

      Hey Gary @GaryHiggins , just a remark about that report of someone on FB installing an X-Dante card in the Wing and it working - that is actually impossible, because the X cards are wider than the Wing cards. So its impossible to install, unless it is cut down using a dremel or something.

    Wasn't sure if I neede to post this in the Midas community or the Behringer community...

    I'm just trying to figure out if the DP48 will work with the X32 (I know there is a 16 channel limitation on the Ultranet protocol) with out using a Hub4? Will a P16D power the DP48?

      @FrankHarlan I am sure it will work with the X32 if firmware 4.0 is installed. I dont think it will work the P16D as it uses aes50 not the ultranet but I am not 100% sure. They come with a power supply of their own. The Hub sends poe using aes50 somehow but also has other bells and whistles so I'm told.

      @FrankHarlan 


      The DP48 is connected to an AES50 bus so can receive 48 channels from the X32, M32, and Wing.


      "Will a P16D power the DP48?" Ultranet and AES50 are two totally different protocols; even if it could provide power it couldn't communicate.

      • November 28, 2019
    • FrankHarlan

      The DP48 will work with the X32 (if on fw4+) using the console's (or stagebox's) AES50 sockets.  However without the HUB4 you'll need to use the wallwart power supply to power the DP48s.  This is because the RJ45 AES50 sockets on the console\stageboxes only do the 48x48 audio, whereas the RJ45 Port 1-4 sockets on the HUB4 do 48x48 audio and PoE.

      Hi @FrankHarlan 


      As the others have mentioned, the DP48 connects to the console (X32/M32) using the AES50 protocol not the Ultranet. Like the P16 personal mixers, they can connect directly to the console, but would require the power adapters. The Hub4 is the equivalent to P16D (but on steroids) and can power the DP48 if used in between the console and the DP48.


       


      The DP48 can be used with firmware older than 4.0, since it accepts whatever the AES50 sends it. What would be missing in the older firmware would be the group names and assignments that the new firmware can provide (from the console). But group names can also be implemented using a file (called "names.csv") in the DP48M of the SD card. There is a setting in the Setup that can load the names from this file.


       


      The advantage of the newer 4.0 firmware is that you can assign the group names and input assignments from the console and save configurations in the AES50 library. It also has OSC commands that would support 3rd party apps that could automate this.

    Good Morning.  Can anyone please tell me the difference between a Midas M32-IP (older version) and the new Midas M32 Live?  My question really is which one is better?  I do Live sound for corporate, Bands and Djs.  Please advise.  Thanking you all in advance for some guidance......

      Hi TJ, welcome to the forum.


       


      The M32 Live includes the DN32-Live expansion card. This allows recording of up to 32 channels onto SD cards without the need for an attached computer. The DN32-Live also has a USB connector for 32 track record/play to/from a PC. The normal M32 comes with just the DN32-USB multichannel USB interface.


       


      Both packages are equally good for live sound. The SD card record/play can be very useful for performing virtual sound checks.

      Hi @tbone11,


      Just to clarify Rex @RexBeckett, post. The M32-IP is now a discontinued package (IP stands for integrated package) that included the M32 full console with the DN32-USB recording card and a flight case. The M32-Live includes the same M32 full console with the newer DN32-Live recording card (that Rex described), but no flight case included. If you are looking at purchasing new, the M32-Live is the one to purchase. If you find a used M32-IP in good condition and price, that may be the way to go, they purchase the DN32-Live at a later point and install.

      Hi Paul,  I heard the older version (forget the IP aspect) has 100mm faders which are faster and better and the newer Live version has 80 mm faders and are slower, Is this true?  Paul my real question is which one has better parts such as preamps, faders and most importatly, sound quality?  Or are they equal or is one better than the other?


      Thank you again.

      Never heard that, even as a rumour. Even the X32 has 100mm faders. Must be "fake news"


      Paul my real question is which one has better parts such as preamps, faders and most importatly, sound quality?  Or are they equal or is one better than the other?


      As far as I know both use the identical M32 console - thus exactly the same sound quality. The only difference I know of is the sound card (DN32-USB vs the newer DN-Live) and the added flight case.

    I have a Midas 32R and a Midas DL16.  I have it setup where I can send 16 inputs from the DL16 into the M32R.  I just figured out how to setup 8 Mixbuss channels on the M32R to send signals out of the 8 channels on the DL16 to external monitors.  

    I thought with the DL16, I would have 16 outputs instead of 8 in conjuction with the M32R?  My intent is to setup 16 Mixbuss (Actually 12 since 4 are for effect channels) for monitor mixes for a live band.  This is probably confusion on my part.   For some reason, I was thinking I would have a total of 16 outputs (Minus the 4 for effect busses) to send signals to external monitors for mixes. I would appreciate it if someone can clarify how many outputs I should have to setup.  Thanks.

      You do - 8 XLR outputs on the back of the M32R and 8 XLR outputs on the DL16. I think you are confusing mixbuses with outputs. They are not the same. Mixbuses mix channel signals sent to them (like the Aux sends on an analog console). These mixbuses can be assigned to physical outputs (but do not have to if you are not using them).


       


      The assignments to the physical outputs are done in the Routing section and the appropriate screens (eg. XLR Out for the XLR outputs on the back of the console, and AES50 A for the stagebox connected to the AES50 A port on the back of the console). These assignments are in blocks (of 4 for XLR Out and 8 for AES50). Therefore you have to stage the individual outputs using Out 1-16, Aux Out or Ultranet screens, then assign those blocks to the physical outputs.

      Yes, I am definitely confused!  However, I do understand what you are saying about mix buss versus outputs.  I'm just not clear on how to setup 8 from the board AND setup 8 separate outputs from the DL16.  


      On the XLR tab, I have 1-4 setup as:  Output 1-4.  5-8 is setup as:  Output 5-8.  


      On the AES A tab, I'm only getting sound from the DL16 if 1-8 is setup as: Output 1-8.   


      On the Out tab, Outputs 1 - 8 are setup as Mix Buss, Mix Buss 1-16, Post Fader.  Note:  Outputs 9-16 are labeled as *This output is currently not assigned to any local analog output connect.  Please check the XLR tab.

      Change the latter (AES50 A tab) first bank (1-8) to Output 9-16


       




      Note:  Outputs 9-16 are labeled as *This output is currently not assigned to any local analog output connect.  Please check the XLR tab.



      Please just ignore that. I told them when they introduced that statement in firmware 2.0 it would confuse users - guess I was right. It means that since the MR32R only has 8 physical XLR outputs, the outputs 9-16 are not connected to them (since outputs 1-8 are).

      Okay, if I'm understanding this correctly.  From XLR Outputs 1- 8 on the M32R, I'm only able to use 1- 6 as 7/8 as Main Left/Main are set as stereo buss signals which are currently going to my studio monitors.  So, the 6 XLR Outputs on the M32R plus the 8 XLR outputs on the DL16 can be sent out for monitor mixes?


      I know I am still confused a bit about mix buss versus outputs.  The XLR tab shows Output Patch Overview as Mixbuss 1 through Mixbuss 8 as Post Fader.  So, while I'm seeing 8 XLR outputs on the XLR tab, I'm still confused why this is not adding up to a total of 16 XLR outputs between the M32R and DL16.  Sorry, my brain is just not comprehending this at the moment.

      That would be correct. The screen of Routing, XLR Out is what is assigned to the 8 XLR output jacks on the back of the M32. If you are using outputs 7/8 for the Main LR, then outputs 1-6 can be used for mixbuses.


       




      I know I am still confused a bit about mix buss versus outputs.  The XLR tab shows Output Patch Overview as Mixbuss 1 through Mixbuss 8 as Post Fader.    



      No, I think you are confusing the XLR Out tab with the Out 1-16 patch tab. The Out 1-16 assigns individual outputs to virtual (patch panel type) outputs. Once they are assigned, they can be assigned to the physical outputs in blocks of 4 (XLR Out) or 8 (AES50-A, AES50-B, Card Out). So on the Routing, Out 1-16 tab (screen) assign the following:


      * Output 1 -> Mixbus 1 (post fader)


      * Output 2 -> Mixbus 2 (post fader)


      ... (etc)


      * Output 6 -> Mixbus 6 (post fader)


      * Output 7 -> Main L (post fader)


      * Output 8 -> Main R (post fader)


      * Output 9 -> Mixbus 7 (post fader)


      * Output 10 -> Mixbus 8 (post fader)


      ... (etc.)


      * Output 14 -> Mixbus 12 (post fader)


       


      Then on the Routing, AES50-A tab


      * Output 1-8 -> Out 9-16


       


      Make sure the DL16 is in Mode 1 (see instructions here).

    Hello!

    I recently tried to connect my X32 to the wireless router and realized that the router is not “seeing” the mixer. By not “seeing” the mixer, I mean that when I look in the router page (by logging into the router website) it shows all other connected devices except the X32. I tried everything I found in forums with no luck at all. I also noticed that one of the yellow/orange(?) lights that indicates ethernet cable connection is on even when I don’t have a cable connected to it. The only thing I can think of is that the ethernet jack no longer works. Has anyone seen this problem before? If so, how can I fix this? If it’s broken, is it even fixable (by non professionals)? Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance!

      To me it sounds a bit suspect regarding the led being lit without cable connection, however I would try re initializing the board, maybe even reload the latest firmware if you have not done either yet. No harm at this point in doing that. Odd chance of a digital ghost. Gut feeling is the port is broken, should be fixable though.

      Hi David @Davidkiim,


      Have you checked the IP address in the X32 (Setup, network) and the router? The first 3 digits have to be identical and the last one has to be unique. Or enable the DHCP (encoder 1) to have the X32 get its IP from the router.

      Hi Paul, @Paul_Vannatto 


      yes, I have checked the IP addresses, and everything checks out. Router ip on “gateway”, and identical ip for the first row except the last number. Tried the DHCP option with no luck. Is the light supposed to be on even when there is no ethernet cable connected? Also, is the other light supposed to come one at some point? (There are two lights, one on each side of the ethernet jack). Only one is constantly on and the other one never turns on.

      The orange light should flicker as it receives/sends data, but should not be on when no ethernet is connected. Are you certain you have it plugged into the ethernet, not the Ultranet? (been there, done that)

    I was going to purchase an XR18 as a mixer/interface to use with my IPad Pro. Then I noticed the App has not been updated in 2 years!

    After some research I have seen reports that it does not work with iPadOS (ios13) 

    this would make it a very expensive paperweight had I bought it. 

    Has this been discontinued? Will you still support it? Stores are still selling new units.

    If I had not done my due diligence I would have already purchased this.

      The XR18 is still supported and one of the best (if not the best) small mixers around. It's so much better than an analog mixer at the same price point.


      While the official iPad app is not yet compatible with iOS13, it's not the only app to control the mixer. While not a free app, "Mixing station" is fully compatible, is much better, and is updated regularly.

    Hello!

    I am the sound tech for a church in Colorado. 

    We setup all our equipment two hours before our weekly meeting, and try to setup for sound check in 30 minutes.

    I have been using a TP-Link C50 router to allow our on stage musicians to mix their bus via iPhones/iPads.

    Here my problem, I’ve been having issues acquiring a good IP address from my router.

    Issue 1) I have to plug and unplug the Ethernet cable about 3-6 times before the Ethernet activity light will appear on both the X32 and the router. I have tried different cables and I am using a CAT5e.

    Issue 2) If using DHCP, about 80 percent of the time I get this goofy self assigned IP address shown in the photo attachment.

    I have tried to reserve an IP (192.168.0.100) for the MAC address of the X32 on the router, and that seemed to help slightly.

    I have tried assigning a static IP to the board, but with little success. I had the thought of assigning a high number (192.168.0.120) in case  the iPhones/iPads are conflicting with the X32.

    I saw that DHCP functionality was added in a forward update later on (around 2016?).

    I need to be able to assign an IP address quickly, since our setup time is about 30 minutes, and I spend about 15 of it on getting a good IP address.

    I am planning on calling Behringer to see if I may have a bad networking card, I am also wondering if a different brand of router would help.

    Has anyone had this issue?

      Hello Graham, welcome to the forum.


       


      The X32 will use a self-assigned IP address if the router does not respond to its DHCP request. This can happen if the router has not completed its startup procedure. It helps to power-up the router first and give it time to stabilize before starting the X32.


       


      Using a fixed IP address for the mixer is usually good in sound systems. Make sure to assign an address that is outside the range that the router uses for DHCP. The limits for this are part of the router's configuration so can be changed if necessary. It may confuse the router if it has a reserved IP address as well as a static one for the same MAC so try deleting the reservation.

      Thanks! I will try both of those solutions tomorrow.

      Hi,


       


      I also have the described DHCP / Network-Problem:


      1) I first tried (lazy as I am) the DHCP setting and received nonsense values for IP and SUBNET... other devices in my network have no problems with the connection via DHCP


      2) I assigned an static IP out of the DHCP-Range of my Router... and NOTHING...


      I also have the problem, that I have to put in and out the cable several times to get the lights lit on the router and device ...


       


      Has anyone an idea? Otherwise I'll request my "30 days money back" next week...

      @ton-toni What model router? What ip do you have to use when logging into the router itself to set it up?

      Hi


      Primary gateway is a Fritzbox -> after that a 19" router from HP for all the clients in the house


      The gateway is 192.168.178.1 / Subnet 255.255.255.0


      The range of the DHCP of the router is from 192.168.178.1 to 192.168.178.200


      When I switched the X32 to DHCP it received 169.254.86.80 / Subnet 255.255.0.0 Why? I don't know...


      After that I tried static with 192.168.178.220 - but I can't find the rack in the network (not listed in the "connected devices" of the FritzBox)

    How do I save a Scene that is on a PC Desktop to an iPad?  Someone said it gets saved as a "snapshot" for the iPad to the XR18 itself.  If so, how do you do that?  Last week, I had someone set up the iPad from the PC and we thought it was saved, but in turning everything on, nothing is working as before... We have it pulled up on the PC, but need to have it usable from ONLY the iPad for remote use.

      RexBeckett Hi KC10, here's how to do it:

      On the PC, using XAir-Edit, load the scene and save it to the mixer as a snapshot.

      On the iPad, using the XAir app, load the snapshot and save it as a scene (on the iPad).

      Snapshots are stored on the mixer so can be loaded by any control device. Scenes are stored on the control device so can be used on different mixers. The optimum solution is usually to save snapshots on the mixer but have at least one backup scene (for each snapshot) saved on the main control device.

        ceve66 Hi RexBeckett, can snapshots, made on the ipad or pc and stored in the mixer and then opened on an X-touch ? Grtz ceve66

        RexBeckett That depends on which model of X-Touch you have. As far as I know, the full-size X-Touch does not have a function for loading snapshots. The Mini and Compact models could load snapshots by usng pre-programmed Midi ProgramChange messages.

      alber Hai, I have a XR18, i want to know how i can use snapshots or scenes. I know that I can save them and save them to the cloud. But I struggle with how i can use them in a show. Example 1 we play a set where came a rock n roll number and I want to set the voc on a snapshot with slapback fx OR example 2 we have a sax....some numbers its a gimmic to have fx with chorus on sax. Example 3 I have one evening 3 bands and do with all a soundcheck in the afternoon and save them....during the evening show I make a different drum and vocal EQ ad the first band. after the first band I load the second band and I do not want to to overwrite drums and vocals . Will jou help me with sugestions how I do that, I think that I load not ALL the new settings..... Thank you!!!

        RexBeckett Snapshots, like Scenes, store all mixer settings (apart from a few global things like network parameters). They are stored in the mixer itself so load almost instantly. There are options to control the Recall Scope - the mixer settings that are affected when the Snapshot is loaded. This allows them to be used to recall some settings without disturbing other channel and mix parameters.

        Each saved Snapshot has a set of Recall Scope options. They can be viewed and adjusted by selecting the Snapshot (single click) on the Snapshot list. The options are automatically saved with the Snapshot and can be updated as requirements change. By default, all options are on so all mixer settings will be affected when a Snapshot is loaded.

        The Recall Scope options are divided into three lists:

        Channel Selection determines which Channels, FX Returns, Bus Masters, FX Sends or Main LR will be loaded.

        Parameter Selection determines which parameters of the selected channels will be loaded. Some of these are grouped (e.g. Source, Input, Config, EQ, Dyn, Fdr/Pan, Mute) which are mostly self-explanatory. There are individual options for sends to the six Buses and the four FX slots.

        The final Global list is for settings that are not concerned with individual channels and buses. This includes options for the In/Out routing, Configuration, DCAs and the four FX slots.

        The options make it possible to have Snapshots that load only (for example):
        The send from channels 3 and 7 to FX 2.
        The FX parameters for slot 1.
        The EQ parameters for bus 4.
        The dynamics settings for the Main LR mix.
        and many other combinations.

        There are limitations, of course. If you enable the options to load the EQ settings for channel 1 and the send to FX3 from channel 2 at the same time, channel 2's EQ and channel 1's FX3 send will also be loaded. I haven't found this to be a big problem in practice.
