    Hi All!

     

    I have the Midas MR18. I'm trying to control it via midi from a PC with Cubase DAW. I figured out how to use CC to mute channels, move faders etc....what I cannot find however is how to address different faders! Everything I do only affects CH 02....Please help!

      Hi Freddy, welcome to the community.


       


      The fader target is set by the controller number in the Midi CC message. This Midi Chart should help you see which controller numbers to use.

      Thank you kindly sir!


      That worked. I can get all the CC comands working but I can't get the snapshots to change. I switched that to program change, channel 1, tried a bunch of numbers from 1-10 and nothing is happening. I have two snapshots saved as a test...1 is all mute and 2 is all unmute.

    I have an M32C I use with a router and run M32Edit on my Macbook Pro wirelessly. it works great. Can I CAT5 from the laptop to my X32 to use as a control surface? If not, why not Midas?

     

    Thanks!

      Hi Bruce ( @brucecrouch ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Yes, but you would need to configure the IP addresses on both the M32C and the MBP to static addresses since, without the router, you wouldn't have a DHCP server handing out addresses. 


       


      See this video for turning off DHCP and setting up static addresses: https://youtu.be/uZApEOXAjj4


       


      Even though it's for an iPad wireless setup, the process is pretty much the same for an MBP hardwired to the mixer without a router.  EDIT: Fast-Forward to 1:00 to get to the manual (static) address setup. 


       


      Let us know if you need a hand with the setup.

    hi

    i have midas mr-12 and you helped me to add channels shared for headphone monitor

    now i need to have as layout the original 12 channels + bus1 and bus2 (bus3 4 5 6 don't needd)

    how can i modify the layout discharging the channels 13 14 15 16 and bus 3 4 5 6 from the layout?

    thanks very much i leave me scenes to change (only to delete channels 13 14 15 16 and bus 3 4 5 6)

    ciao and thanks

    I know there's plenty of threads out there regarding scenes/snippets, but I haven't come across an answer to a couple quick questions I have. If there's already a thread, feel free to direct me to it.

    Preparing cues for our Christmas production with drama and choir/orchestra. Sounds like the best method is creat a couple different scenes (with different routing) for each, then add snippets for unmuting/muting of different actors within a scene (our produciont scenes).

    Question 1: I've seen you can add scenes AND snippets in a cue. After I've loaded the "Drama" scene for example, and may have several different muting/unmuting cues within that scene, is it necessary for me to load the "Drama" scene along with every snippet I may use for each cue? Or will the scene stay the same and I add just the snippet to the next cue?

    Question 2: Say I'm finished with a choir/orchestra piece and want to go immediately into a "Drama" scene, can I load the "Drama" scene (which has rerouting) along with a snippet unmuting the actor mics as the very next cue? Or will that cause popping/other issues? Do I need to load just the "Drama" scene as one cue, and then unmuting on another cue via a snippet?

    Thanks for any help!

      Hi Dustin @dmuir90 ,


      Welcome to the forum. Yes you can combine a scene with a snippet in a cue. Scenes change (almost all) of the console settings, whereas snippets change only specific settings such as channel mutes. The advantage of using the scenes for major changes and snippets for minor is that if you have a major change (eg. getting a stagebox which changes the main routing) is that with snippets, you only have to change the main scene(s).


      Switching from scene or snippet to another scene or snippet (if they are on the console) are almost instantaneous. So there will not be any pops or dropouts of sound. 


      So about your question. typically in a cue list, you would have your major scene, then each subsequent cue you would have just a snippet that changes the mutes, etc. Then when a major change happens, add a scene. 


      If you find the cues screen a bit cumbersome, I have developed an app called Show Manager as an alternative interface to make it easier to add scenes and snippets, and move them around. Also to make snippets, have a look at my other app Scene Parser

    Just wanted to double check, my understanding is scene save files are compatible across the midas M32 line (including the X32).

    Hoping it's a dropt-in replacement (we only use AES-50 and very few of the back-panel connectors, nothing the M32R doesn't have).

    This would be a one-shot upgrade, so some minor loss could probably be accomodated.

    thanks.

      @KurtHutchison 


      Yes. The are the same file format and you can move scenes from one console to another. You can even use the same apps to control them both. 


      Edit: Be aware that the full size X32 has the LR outputs on XLR 15 and 16; whereas, the M32R is 7 & 8. If your sending the mains (LR) to a stage box over AES50, they will be the same.

    I am having a issue when I try to rout audio between Midas M32R and Tesira Server. All the inputs look to be direct outputs, and I dont have any fader control on the input.

      Hello Mentor, welcome to the forum.


       


      When you are setting routing on the Routing -> Card Output page, the Local and AES signal will be the direct inputs before any channel processing. If you want to use signals from other signal taps, you should Stage them on the Output 1-16, Ultranet or Aux Out tabs.


       


      If you upgade to firmware V4.0, you can also use the new User Out routing to manage the individual signals instead of being tied to blocks of eight.


       


      If you attach your scene file (see Choose File button below), and tell us what channels/taps you want routed to the card outputs, we could give you more specific help. Do tell us which firmware version you are using.

    Some scenes from my M32R were deleted. Is it possible to restore them back?

      @Eduard If they were truely deleted, they are gone for good afaik. Is it possible they are on a usb drive in a different folder? Or stored on your computer? Sorry if they are gone.

      Sorry to hear that ... but deleted is deleted

      FW update can cause data loss
      From version 4.00 there is a backup function available on the setup page
      It will ask to backup when you will do the next update, so this should not happen anymore from now on, unless you dont read the warnings ...

      Do a backup regularly, and backup the backups on different devices

      Best regards

    A local church has purchased a M-32 Live console and brouo.ght the mixer to me to learn how to use it and then set it up in the local church. They have already installed 3 JBL Arrays. I want to set the mixer up to run LRC or LR+Mon. I have no problem getting the sound out too the L&R Main fader. Need  help on how to set up a mono mix of all the channels to go to the center array. The Behringher X-32 has a L&R slider output and another Center mono slider right beside it with corresponding XLR outputs on the back of the console. How will I be able to do this on the M-32. It has no seperate XLR out to go the the mono center array...thanks in advance, Mark Little

      @TMLSound 


      Hi Mark, welcome to the forum.


       


      The M32 and X32 have very similar functionality. Each channel and  mixbus can send to the Main LR and Mono/Centre buses. The Mono/Centre fader is shown on the Main tab. You can choose between LR+Mono or LCR panning on the Setup -> Mixer tab. The Mono/Centre bus can be routed to an XLR output through the Routing -> Outputs 1-16 and Routing -> XLR Out tabs.


       


      If you need help with routing, attach your current scene file to your post (see Choose File button below).

      Thank you for that information. I want to be able to set up a mono mix output on XLR Mix Out 14 for all channels on the mixer. I will use this out along with the regular stereo outs on Mix Out 14 and 15. I need to know how to assign all channels to a Mix Buss XLR out on 14.  Thanks..Mark
