    Hello Tribers,

    I see in Routing where my mix bus feeds are assigned to Analog Outputs.  But, I am not seeing where the 16 Analog Outputs are routed to Main L/R.  The only two physical XLR out feeds are the L/R on outputs 15/16.  All the other mix buses find their way to Main L/R but I cannot figure out where that is configured.

    Thanks!

      Hi @SonicWave 


      Check the XLR Out screen (for Out 9-16 assignment) if you have the Main LR connected to the back of the M32. If you are using a stagebox to make these connections, check the AES50 screen.

      I should be more clear.


      Currently, all my Mix Buses somehow end up in the main mix.   I did not configure that but each of my mix buses (with the exception of ones going to XLR 15 and 16) all end up in the main FOH mix. 


      @Paul_Vannatto   are you saying those are assigned in blocks of 8 in the XLR Out tab?  If so, I am super confused.

      If that is the case, it wasn't evident in your first post. If you have your mixbuses going to Main LR, and you don't want that, select each mixbus master fader, then select the Main screen and disable the LR.

      I am happy that my Mix Buses are going to the Main output but I am confused how they are getting there.


      I understand the routing from mix bus to analog out. My question is how is the analog out is getting to L/R.


      MixBus-1 -> AnalogOut-1 -> Main L/R


      Where is that routing configured?   The only physical outputs from the board are two XLR for L/R and two XLR for monitor mixes.  My IEM's use CAT 5.


      Thanks!

    Hello everybody

    I just changed the batterie following those instructions from Midas:

    "As for the battery, a good battery should last about 2 years however if the console is left in very cold storage it can deplete the battery and if it falls below 3v DC it can reset the BIOS. With the console off for several hours you can always check the battery health by using a multimeter to measure the voltage, if it is +3.3v DC it should be good but if it is reading low it is advised to power the console ON and change it once the console has booted up -this must be done with the power on otherwise it will reset the BIOS."

    So you open the plate with all th faders an lift and secure it only where the faders are (abbout 15 cm). You can see it sticking on the mainboard on the right.

    In my cas i's a CR 2032. As you have to change it under power you do not want to use a ply to lift it out. Just pull the security-latch aside and lift it out with some sharp-end plastic tool.

    Hope this will help somebody.

    cheers

    Werner

      Hello Tam, welcome to the community.


       


      Firmware V4.00 has many problems. V4.01 fixes some of them but is still flawed. V4.02 is expected shortly. I suggest you re-install V3.12 until it is available. Use this method: copy the firmware file, on its own, to the root folder of a USB stick. Connect this to the console and hold in the USB button while turning on the power switch.


       


      You can download V3.12 firmware from the M32 downloads page  if you check the Show Legacy Versions option.

      Would you be so kind as to put version 3.12? back on the available firmware list. I'd dance at your next wedding!

      Hi Dave, welcome to the community.


       


      Do you not see it on the M32 downloads page or X32 downloads page if you check the Show Legacy Versions option?

      That is the X32 firmware. The M32 firmware is a bit different. 


      @DaveFletcher What exactly is the issue with the USB drive? It is working fine on my X32 Rack and the church's X32? Are you certain it isn't a routing issue?

      A slip of the mind, Paul. Thanks for pointing that out. The M32 downloads page is here and also has V3.12 if you check the Show Legacy Versions option.


       


      Robert, when you update the console firmware, it sets some of the global settings to default - including the sample rate. If your problem is with playing wav files from the USB, check the console sample rate matches that used for the recorded tracks.

    Is there a way to implement "walk in" music (from an iPOD typically)  when using the M32C other than using up 2 channels on the stagebox?  Can the USB interface be used? Occasionally I have shows where I use all 32 channels so walk in music becomes a issue if I am not using one of the console mixers.

    Thanks for the help!

      @DaveBatistig Have you considered the usb player on board...using a usb stick? It needs to be wav files on it but should work well.

      Hi Dave, 


       


      That's a great question.  I've never done it with an iPod, but I was able to connect my iPhone X to an X32 Rack using the Camera Connection Kit and get it to play two-channel audio.  The only problem I ran into was that it would only play out USB1/2 so you'd have to play around with your card routing.  Also, I'm not sure if the CCK works with an iPod or even if iPods use a lightning cable or not. 


       


      Here's a link to the CCK I used: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MK0W2AM/A/lightning-to-usb-3-camera-adapter


       


      Hope this helps (at least a little), 


      Ken

    Hello all.

                   I am looking for help with the initial setup of an M32R, using Firmware 4.00

    I have a very basic setup, the setup as follows: Computer into M32R Via USB card sent to inputs 1 & 2. Monitors to come from the monitor outputs.

    AKAI sampler going into inputs 3 & 4.

    Ability to send a signal  (Any signal coming into the mixer) from AUX Outputs 1 & 2 with volume control.

    I have looked at a few tutorials but none of them show a basic setup such as this.

    Thank you in advance.

      @Alphasounds There is a fix on the way with firmware 4.02-supposedly soon. Until then I would suggest going back to 3.12 by way of first loading 3.07. 3.07 (specific) sets your M32 faders back the way they used to be, then loading 3.12 will get all back to what you are used to. Before doing that you might want to try and re load 4.01 again as maybe it didn't load properly. I have an M32R and do not have those issues but perhaps a full M32 reacts in a different way.


       


      If you don't have 3.07 I can post a dropbox link...it was until recently among the "legacy" firmware options but may no longer be...

      Thank You, So 1rst 3.7 and then 3.1 but this sounds like spending a lot of hrs for the Hope just going back were i starded.

      @Alphasounds It's 3.07 and then 3.12. It doesn't take long, no more than 5 min for each firmware update once you have the files. BTW this is not an official fix but it worked perfectly for me...more than once...as I wanted to try 4.01 again with the slower faders AND the new routing menus. That said you should do it at your own risk. You can just go directly back to 3.12 but the slow fader part remains, I was not happy with that choice.

      Thank You, the Scary part was not the speed, a lot of eq faders are in need to be kind of woken up and then used. Dissapointing. Have You got a link for the 2 old Firmware versions handy ?

    Hello all.

    I am trying to re-route one input on our M32.  Specifically, I want to reroute XLR input 27 to fader 16.  I've tried a few combinations on the Patch tab under Routing - but to no success.  Can somebody provide a primer or procedure to achive this outcome?

    Thx in advance for your help.

      No need for patch points, just remap the input.Screen Shot 2020-01-12 at 12.01.16 AM.png

      @DwayneAasberg If you meant using the new user in and out menus (see pic) When you want to choose a single (or multiple) sources you have to highlight the desired block for that ch group and then select the ch or ch's as desired. It is quicker as Dave said doing just a single ch to use the source tab of a ch (16) using the config page and change it from in16 to in27.

      Thx both @DaveMorrison@GaryHiggins .


      Making the selection right in the channel input tab is the easiest.  I was trying to do it using the Routing screen on the M32 and it appears I confused myself.


      Also note, and it makes sense when you think about it, that when XLR27 is routed to Ch8 the HA is also remapped (gain, 48V and polarity), but not HPF.  Also learned tht XLR27 is still available at it's original fader position, too.  I half expected the input on fader 27 to be set to off.  But that's okay, this forces deliberate assignment.

    I've just bought an M32C and a DL32. I'm having trouble finding the detailed manuals I need to get them connected and talking to each other, and for the iPad and Win10 apps (M32 Edit and M32 Q).

    For the M32C and the DL32, I can find Quick Start Guide and Product Description documents (which aren't helpful), but I can't find full user manuals. Would someone point me to download links for them?

    I've looked on the product pages on the Midas web site, in the Download sections. No manuals for any of them.

    There's also no documentation there for the apps - only download links. The app zip files have a few lines in their release notes, but no users manual.

    I've got the DN32-USB in the M32C talking to my PC, but I can't get the M32C to do anything.M32 Edit says "Not Connected".

    I've connected the M32C to the DL32 with a shielded CAT5e cable, via the "A" connectors.

    I could use some help.

      Hi @LenMinNJ,

      Check out this video to help get started. The DN32-USB is for audio recording/playback and not for remote control of the console. You can connect the PC directly to the M32C via ethernet cable but if you plan on using a tablet you'll need a router.

      Hi George @georgekaripidis 


      Welcome to the forum. Which Midas console do you have? Is it the MR18? If so, assigning signals to the P16 is done on the Routing, Ultranet screen in the M-Air Edit app.
