    I have an 8 speaker rig that I want to run as an ambisonic system.  The speakers surround the listener similar to this: 

    m11_array1.jpg

    Each speaker receives a discreet audio signal.  I want to know if the xr18 is capable of running this?

    I know I can route 8 separate channels from the computer/usb to the 8 Aux/Main outputs.  I want to know if the xr18 is capable of handling all of that processing at  high quality without choking. Thanks.

      Yes, It's a professional mixer designed to mix 18 inputs and output the Stereo Bus and 6 Auxouts all with full dynamics and 4 multimode EQs on every channel under the hot sun day in and day out all with great quality.

      @Jschwa @DaveMorrison Plus 1 to that! These sound great and will take the abuse with no complaints. As an aside, you might want to spend a few (250) more $ and get the MR18 which has Midas Pro level mic pre's, an improved output stage and a full 10 year warranty, firmware, bells and whistles identical otherwise.

      Hi Jason ( @Jschwa ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.   A year or so ago I did a 5.1 surround setup for a local theatre group with an XR18 and it worked fine.  All of the sound effects were pre-made and exported as six individual stem tracks.  They were played back using Reaper and the performers vocals were mixed live into the Main L/R/C channels depending upon their position on the stage.  As @DaveMorrison  and @GaryHiggins have already said, it's a great mixer and yes, the MR18 is even better. 


       


      Feel free to ask questions as you get set up. 


      Ken

      @KenMitchell Is there a way to route discreet audio to the L/R mains?  For example channel 7 would go to the left main and channel 8 to the right?  I can do this with the Aux ourts but the mains seem to be tied together.

    I have a Midas M32R for FOH and an x32 rack for monitors.  I also have two SD16 stage boxes.  

    I'd like to create a split from the boxes to run parallel signals to the FOH and monitor mixers.

    Since I'm not currently near my set up I cannot test it and would like to get some feedback ahead of time. 

    If I connect FOH AES A to AES A of stage box 1, and AES B of stage box 2 to AES B of X32 Rack, and finally AES B of stage box 1 to AES A of stage box 2, can I accomplish this?

    How would this impact the powered ultranet ports as they are now connected to two different mixers?  I'd like to use Ultranet on FOH for Turbosound IQ connections, Ultranet on the rack for P16 artist mixers, and Ultranet on the SD16 snakes to connect IQ floor wedges that are served from the monitor mixer.

    thank you so much.

      Okay, after reviewing this YouTube video using a DL32 with a Midas, it seems that the error in my original schematic is at the terminal connection of the AES50 chain.  It appears that the second stage box must be connected from AES50B to AES50A of the FOH console to complete the chain.  All stagebox inputs should then be accessible to both mixers, assuming channel routing is set to AES50A 1-32.  


       


      Finally (and I speculate), the stage box Ultranet ports will carry the signal of whichever mixer is set to master sync?  In my case, if I want to use the SD16 Ultranet ports to carry mix bus signals from the X32 Rack to the stage wedges, I would set X32 Rack synchronization to "internal", M32R sychronization to "AES50A", and route AES50A 33-48 to carry "Output 1-16" in their default settings, which would be the mix busses.  But what channel would the IQ12 wedges need to be set to?


       


      Am I on the right track?

      @MikeDrennan 


      The recommended method for connection is M32 to X32 to Sd16 to Sd16. Yes you can use two (or 3) ultranet zone in the way you described. You could run the FOH from the X32's Ultranet ports and the P16s from the SD16s. We can help you with the routing. Just show us your desired wiring diagram and you current scene files.

      Hi Mike @MikeDrennan,


      As Dave @DaveMorrison mentioned, you need to put the stageboxes (SD16) on the end of the AES50 chain. Do not connect a console to the [B] port of any stagebox (I'll explain why shortly). 


       


      I always establish the interconnectivity mapping in this manner ([A] and [B] are the AES50 ports):


      M32 FOH [B] <-> [A] X32 MON [B] <-> [A] SD16 [B] <-> [A] SD16


       


      The X32 will function as a monitor mixer as well as a stagebox distributor (to and from) so that both consoles will receive the desired inputs and send desired outputs to the stageboxes. That will all be accomplished on the X32, Routing, AES50 screen(s). 


       


      The reason that you should not connect a console to the stagebox B port (other than the S32 or DL32 which is designed a bit differently) is that the signals from the B port is the outputs from the other console, not the inputs of the stageboxes. Think of the AES50 as a 48 lane freeway. Stagebox inputs go (east) out of the A ports to the console and console outputs come into the stagebox A port to its outputs (depending on what the switch is set to) and out the B port to the next stagebox.


       


      Regarding the Ultranet outputs of the SD16 (or SD8 for that matter), it gets its 16 signals from the 5th and 6th bank of what comes to the stagebox (from its A port). If you use the interconnectivity mapping I suggest, what you assign on the X32 Routing, AES50 B33-40 and B41-48 will come out the Ultranet ports of the 2 SD16. That said, if you want 8 channels from FOH and 8 channels from MON consoles, you could assign AES50 A33-40 (coming from FOH) to the 5th bank and P16 1-8 (coming from MON). 


       


      If you desire separate Ultranet zones for each of the SD16, you will need to change the interconnectivity to the following:


      SD16 [A] <-> [A] M32 FOH [B] <-> [A] X32 MON [B] <-> [A] SD16


       


      Then both consoles will function as their respective mixing responsibilities as well as being a distributor for the other console - a bit more complicated routing, but doable.

      @Paul_Vannatto , I think I mostly follow your plan.  If you look at my second diagram, what I really want is to be able to use all 16 channels of the Ultranet bus from the Rack without having to give up channels for the IQ floor wedges.  


      In other words, drive all the P16 units and the floor wedges from the rack, effectively using 19 channels of Ultranet.  Are you saying I can do this with your connection protocol?


      Using the Ultranet bus on the FOH M32 for IQ mains and subs is no problem, as this is how I have always used it in the past.  I just want to be able to drive all the monitor mixes, P16s and wedges, from the X32 Rack. 


      What would the synchronization settings need to be?


       


      thanks so much.

      Hi Mike @MikeDrennan,


      Yes you can do that. What you want to go out of the Ultranet port of the X32, assign on its Routing, Ultranet screen (since the Ultranet port is permanently connected to this screen). Then (again on the X32) assign what you want to go out of the SD16 (both of them) Ultranet on its Routing, AES50 B33-40. That means for the latter you will need to stage that bank of 8 using the Routing, Outputs 1-16. For example if you assign the wedges to outputs 9-12, assign Outputs 9-16 to Routing AES50 B33-40.


       


      The sync (master clock) can be either console, since it has no effect to the Ultranet routing, understand that only one device in the X32/M32 eco-system can be the master clock. If you choose to have the M32 FOH as master clock, then select the HA Remote AES50 A port (Setup, Preamps page) on the X32 MON console. That tells the X32 to get it's sync from what is connected to its A port.
