    I've been having this issue for a couple of weeks and just realized it was a problem with my X32. Certain channels on my board are suddenly not sending to the correct outputs, such as mains and aux outputs. I took the channel settings for a channel and copied them exactly to a new channel and tried using that input channel. When I did this, the channel worked exactly like it was set, sending everything to the correct outputs. I had to do this with my electric piano, drums, acoustic, and electric guitar channels. What would be causing this? 

    I've uploaded the scene file. If it is a double channel, the one to the left of it is the channel we copied the settings to.

      Dave Morrison How did you attach your scene file??? This is something we've been wanting since they revamped this infernal forum.
      I've taken a quick look at your scene. I'll study it more in a few hours. Maybe one of the other experts will have it solved before I get to it????.

      • X32 Outputs Randomly Not Working
        Paul Vannatto I just found out that attachments can only be done when you start a new thread, not when replying. Also the formatting features that we use to have in the previous interface (including URL links) are also available when creating new thread, but not for replies (grrrrr).

      Paul Vannatto Hi Caleb, how are you copying the channels - on the console or in X32-Edit? In X32-Edit, make sure you are on the Mixer tab if you want everything copied. Otherwise the recall scope (paste) will be context limited to the tab (screen) you are on.

      I had a look at your scene and one thing I noticed that some of the duplicates (eg. IPAD) are on even/odd pairs. If you are planning on stereo linking those channels, it won't work, since the stereo linking only works on odd/even channels.

      • X32 Outputs Randomly Not Working
        Caleb Willis I copied some through the console and some through the iPAD app. The channels that I copied aren't the issue. The issue is that the original channels stopped sending to random outputs such as mains and my livestream feed.

      Dave Morrison It is fantastic to see your mixer's setup; it's really easy to see what going on. Can you tell us which channels are are problem and the channel that fixes that problem, so I can compare them more closely? For example, does 4 and 29 (piano) go to the same instrument? These are setup quite differently. It sounds like when you move the channel you are also moving the input cable to the new channel's input. Is this correct? With a little more detail, we can troubleshoot this problem.

      • X32 Outputs Randomly Not Working
        Caleb Willis Hi David. The channels that I copied were 15 to 14, 6 to 5, 11 to 12. I know that channel 7 also has issues right now, but I haven't tried the copy method yet. And yes, I just switched the input over to those channels.

      Dave Morrison There are two differences—the same two differences in these channels. Each of the problem channels has DCA 2 and Mute Groups 2 & 6 assigned. Clear them one-by-one to find your problem (or push up the DCA fader to unity).

        Caleb Willis For some reason the DCA didn't even cross my mind. Thank you for clearing this up.

    The Tribe came through for me last time, so I'm back again with a lot more knowledge, but still getting stumped by this one! We are testing some gear for a new studio and have the X32 LIVE SD recording card on loan. We installed the card into our X32 to try for some live shows, but we are separately working on a big recording project using Logic Pro X--so I of course have scenes for both so I could toggle between the functions. I thought this would work, but I'm at a loss.

    When I loaded my REC scene to playback a new song for mixing, I get absolutely nothing for audio output. I can see the signal in Logic, and can't find any configuration on the X32 that sends this signal to my monitor controller. I didn't change any routing on the X32 from the way it previously worked. Our speaker/amp configuration is the same. I don't know 100% if it's a problem with routing or with the X32 LIVE card, or maybe I wrongly believed it would still interface the same as the X-USB card did? I'm uploading the scene we used previously that WORKED with the X-USB card--all I had to do was load the scene and turn up the knobs.

    For reference, I'd been tracking 16 ch into Logic Pro X from the X32, then assigning certain instruments/groups in Logic back through the X32 for use with PowerPlay pods for multi-person recording, which is why the P16s are in use in the Card Output assignments. I thought I was starting to really get a grasp of routing this machine, but I can't even get this to output to my studio monitor controller for mixing. VERY frustrating and humbling.

    Thanks in advance for any advice and assistance on this one! It's late here, so I'm giving up for the night. I'll check back tomorrow and hopefully one of you amazing folks can step up and help me out with this monster!

      Gary Higgins Hello Brittany, I don't think your scene showed up correctly, try using drop box or similar to send a link to it. One big drawback with this new forum is the inability to attach scenes, it's unfortunate. It's probably a setting for the X-live card. Either with the record/playback/auto settings for sd or the main usb/sd setting period. I tried to attach a picture of where to look, for some reason i can't do it at the moment. I will try later.

      • Routing X32/DN32 with P16s
        Gary Higgins Looks like this worked....anyway...I would guess first, the top left setting being at sd and not usb, or just the opposite. If not it could be the channel routing settings for record/playback or auto below it. I believe the setting there applies to both the usb and sd recorder. The routing is different there depending on how it is set up

      • Routing X32/DN32 with P16s
        Gary Higgins Depending on which setting below, the routing has to be set for each. Then when you choose Automatic in the above pic, the routing changes when you hit record or play.

      • Routing X32/DN32 with P16s
        Brittany Rees Thank you for looking into this a bit--I didn't realize the scene wouldn't share like I have done previously. I'm excited to jump into this again later today to test this out and see if that's where my settings are off from your suggested screen shots. I'm using the X32 Rack, so I'm not sure my screens look quite the same--I hope I can find these settings and apply the right switches. Thank you!

      • Routing X32/DN32 with P16s
        Paul Vannatto If you are using the X32 Rack front panel to setup your scenes and routing, I would strongly recommend using the X32-Edit app instead, since it is so much easier to do and much easier to see what you are doing. I do a lot of scene preparation for events (before the Covid-19 shutdown) and use X32-Edit (and/or M32-Edit). Using the front panel would be brutally hard IMO.

        Gary Higgins Those screen shots are from X/M32-Edit, and I totally agree with Paul, way too difficult to do without this program.

        Paul Vannatto This has nothing to do with this thread (X32/DN32 with P16). Please start a new thread with much more details that you are providing
