    Hi 

    I've got a band with 7 member, who's considering buying a P16-system. Recently I stumbled upon the DP48-system, which, to me, seems more attractive than the P16-system.

    However, I'm interested in knowing if it is possible to daisy chain multiple DP48s and if so, how many units can be daisy chained?

    Fingers crossed that someone can help me out

      @Krabbe Paul or Robert will know for sure but the units use aes50 and not an ultranet port, they have an in and a thru aes50 port and power is supplied using POE so I'm sure you can link "many". The ultranet port of the p16 with p16D's added could support I believe up to 64 p16M's? Anyway I'm sure at LEAST 4 could be linked, with each supporting 2 mixes-that would give 8 people mixes of their own. My guess is it would support many more, but I'm a guesser!

      I think it might also depend on what the functionality of the "yet-to-be-released" HUB4 is when it comes to the remote configuration and also the back-channeling of the mixes.  That could limit the number of DP48s in a chain.

      @KenMitchell The Hub4 kind of sounds like the dp48 equivalent of the P16D, I'm guessing (I do a lot of that) it takes an aes50 line, adds the POE component and supplies 4 dp48's which can each then pass on 1 via aes50 thru (they each have a thru)? As you said that bidirectional aes50 48 ch count makes things a bit sticky. Can't wait to find out! I'll get 10 or so to go with my new WING

      Hi @Krabbe,


      I can provide some insight regarding this new personal mixer. Daisy chaining of the DP48 is done in a similar manner to the P16's in that each DP48 has input and thru AES50 ports and would require the included power adapter. The Hub4 provides POE on the AES50 to eliminate the need for the power adapter if the DP48 is connected directly to it (similar to the P16-D). 


       


      The Hub4 is a 1U form factor that provides for up to 4 DP48 as well as input and thru AES50 ports. But it also has a lot of routing flexibility in it. One of the features is that you can connect up to 8 stereo IEMs to the back of it, that are mixed from the connected DP48. Each DP48 can accommodate 1 or 2 musicians. 


       


      I've been beta testing these since the beginning of July with 9 tribute bands (from all over Ontario, Canada) and 9 local bands - and everyone loved them. One of the events was a Woodstock 50th Anniversary (Aug 16) that had 1 local band and 5 tribute bands in 9 hours. That allowed approximately 30 minutes between bands. As part of the transition, I had to set gains (only one band showed up for soundcheck), show everyone how to use their DP48's, change mic placement, etc. At the end of each set, I got rave reviews from each of the bands. That shows how user-friendly the DP48 can be - if the sound engineer is prepared to spend some time ahead of the event setting it all up (and the riders from the bands are up to date and accurate).

      Hey Paul @Paul_Vannatto , so what is the real world limit to the number of DP48 units on a single mixer? Have they said? Can a stagebox be cascaded off (and back thru) a DP48 or Hub4? In other words if you use the DP48 on a port A or B of a mixer, is that port more or less used up or can other things still be connected? Also the aes50 assignments, are you "stuck" with the ch assignments used on a port (A or B) elsewhere for the available DP48 ch's? For instance say I use out 1-8, out 9-16 for mixbuses and foh and have 17-24 set for say aux1-6/M and then say card 1-8 for 25-32 and p16 for the rest. Are these then then also aes50 ch choices for the DP48? If so it would seem then that one might be better off keeping one port exclusively for the DP48's and use the other port for other mixers and stageboxes?

    I'm owner of MIDAS MR12. But the unit has very loud POP impulse when I doing switch off (disengage) the unit. By the POP I can damage my PA system. Is it normal? Is it quality of MIDAS?

    By the way, CARY TICKETS is not in function!

      The amplifiers/speakers should ALWAYS be turned off first. The proper way to power on and off a sound system is when powering on the mixer gets turned on first and anything else between the mixer and the speakers and then turn on the speakers. When turning the system off the speaker HAVE TO BE TURNED OFF FIRST. Or you will get that pop.The POP will happen with just about any mixer if you turn it off first.

      Remember, First On, Last Off - I've had that in my head since 1978.  Your mixer is the first thing you turn on and the last thing you turn off after the event.  Also turn your amp / active speakers on with volume down, then turn up slowly just in case there is a crazy hot source open that you're not aware of.  The good thing is you can do all that from stage w/ the ipad apps.

    Hello !

    I'm learning the mixing and got an issue i'm trying to solve.

    On my M32, everything was fine and suddently, when i press "Solo" on a fader, it goes into my headphones AND my L/R monitoring...

    Everytime i press SOLO on a fader, it goes like the monitoring was a "second" headset.

    I passed 2 days on it, tried all the settings i could find and finaly reseted the M32 (factory reset) but it didn't solve anything (so not a settings issue ?).
    I can guarantee that the cabling is good.

    I obvisouly can't mix without using the Solo in my headset ONLY.

    I asked to teacher in charge but he failed to solve this case, can you help me ?

      Hi Victor @CLVictor 


      Welcome to the forum. Are your monitors connected to the monitor outputs on the back of the M32? If so that explains why. The monitor outputs are tied to the headphone outputs. If you want the monitor outputs to be separate, you will need to use a couple of the outputs that are under the XLR inputs, then assign the routing appropriately (Routing, XLR Out).

      Hi William, 


       


      Welcome to the community.  When did you open your ticket?   I know the auto-reply message says someone will contact you within one business day but that's been much longer lately.  Also, did you check your spam folder to see if a reply got stuck there?

    Hello,

    Can these FX from the Deepmind be added to the M32? Hopefully via a firmware update.

      Hi @JimmyValenza 

      When you load a single instance of the Midas Spectrum Analyzer and select 'Channel' and it'll display whichever channel is selected on the console. Connect your RTA mic and select its channel (hopefully remove from stereo buss of course) and it'll populate in the RTA Effects rack as well as overlay on the individual channel EQ.
