    Hi there,

     

    I have owned a Venice 32F for over six years and have it running on a Windows 7 (32 bit) system with a Sinux FWB3414G firewire PCI-e card. It has been working like a charm since day one.

    I have now put together a new PC because the old one is on its way out. It has a Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) system and I got a new fire wire PCI-e card by Star-Tech (2 Port PCI Express FireWire Card - PCIe 1394a FireWire Adapter).

    I installed the drivers, the card is being recognised by Windows but when I fire up my Venice it is not recognised (I have installed the drivers for the Midas console).

    I then tried my old firfewire PCI-e card (Sinux) and it does recognise the console but when I started REAPER the first time and set the sound device to the Midas console Windows popped up a blue window with an error code and restarted Windows.

    I tried it a few more times also with another audio program and the PC would just restart.

     

    1. Does anyone know what could be the issue? (Start Tech had drivers to install, Sinux had no drivers to install).

    2. Can anyone recommend a firewire card they know is working with Windows 10 (ideally available in Australia)

     

     

    Cheers, RLND

      Nigel67 Hi RLND, I think your problem is more to do with the driver. Unfortunately Midas support for the Venice F ceased a number of years ago now and there was never a driver released for Windows 10. There are many posts on forums asking if anyone has made the Windows 7 driver work successfully with Windows 10. The only time that I have seen a person answer with a successful outcome was this one, however I have never had anyone else verify it. The post went as follows; 'Downloaded the Win 7 driver. Then right click the .exe file and switch compatibility to Win 7 so now the driver runs in Win 10, thinking its Win 7'. I hope this works for you. If not, then I can only suggest that you search on the internet to see if you can find someone else who has managed to get the driver working. Many thanks

      RLND ... I tried your tip with the Star-Tech card and it recognises now the console, however, when I start Reaper and switch to ASIO Midas the same scenario happens - blue screen and PC restarts. Meanwhile I read on another forum that there is a difference with different chip sets on firewire cards re Win 10 - some work with Win 10 and some don't. I'll do some further research. Cheers, Roland

        robsimons78 Thank you. I have been contacted now. I guess before I order a new firewire card, I want to be sure it's not working 100%. I've tried on OSC High Sierra and Catalina, newest drivers, and terminal hack OK. Drivers appear fine, the FireWire lights are green, but no devices found. Do the FireWire lights need to be RED to indicate that it's faulty??

        DavidKnighton Hello robsimons78,
        From my experience, the LED does not change color. It is constantly illuminated during power on. The only true way to know if the firewire chip is gone is by interfacing with a firewire enabled computer running Windows 7 or Mac OS El Capitan or earlier. These are the latest known working and supported operating systems. Any other operating system is not officially supported or tested.

        robsimons78 Thanks, that's helpful. I have one more machine with a legacy OSX that I'll try. If that doesn't work then I suppose I have my answer Also, I know it's been pitched a few times before, but an updated Thunderbolt card for these mixers would be a godsend, thousands of Venice owners would jump all over it.

    Hi all,

    I bought one of these mixers in the US that came with a 120V power supply, I now live in Asia where the voltage is 220-240V and I bought an official spare power supply here that says 230V. Would I be able to use this spare power supply for my US-bought device?

     

    Thanks for your help!

      DavidKnighton Hello michaelanthony9357,
      looking at the 1202FX, it appears to take an external AC-DC power supply, rather than direct AC mains. I would compare the DC output voltage on the adapters to ensure they are identical.

    Hi ! 

    I'va a problem on my X2442. On stereo channels 9/10 and 11/12 the Gain control doesn't work. If I try to turn fully clockwise, I hear just a white noise increasing, but the source sound doesn't change in level. I've connected a digital piano and a digital synth, no FX enabled. What can I try to verify? The fader controls work fine.

    Thanks!

      RexBeckett Hi lucattani, the user manual for the X2442USB seems to explain that the gain control on channels 9/10 and 11/12 only affects the Mic (XLR) input. This is strange but apparently what the designers intended. See attached clipping about the stereo channels from page 8 of the user manual.

      If they are spare, you could use channels 13/14 and 15/16 which do have functioning gain controls for line-level inputs. Otherwise you would need to adjust the output level on the source devices.

        lucattani73 Ah... yes, I think it's a strange idea. But.... THANK YOU VERY MUCH RexBeckett

    Hard to find answer to size of the pin of the replacement power supply for Behringer MX400 micromixer. It is 12 V, center +, but No where says the inner or outer diameter of the pin/plug it uses - so hard to order correct replacement.

    Hello to all,

    where I can find a description,  how I can install the windows software package (Instruments,  hosts...) on my Win 10 PC. The quick Start Guide is very poor,  and a manual I cannot find on the download page. I will by happy for every hint.

     

    Best regards

    Svens

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi SJegrovs, the mentioned software package is made up of a DAW(Digital Audio Workstation) and Plugins, how you install the Plugins will vary depending on the DAW being used.
      We would recommend referring to the manual for the DAW you are using for the best guidance on installing the Plugins, if you plan to use the included Audacity DAW their website has some very useful information regarding this. Please see the link below:

      KyleJohnson Hello, Kyle from Music Tribe here. I'd recommend using the Sub Group routing and outputs. You can find more on how to operate the Sub Groups in the manual which can be found at: https://www.behringer.com/behringer/product?modelCode=P0A0M

      Paul_Vannatto Connect your monitors (either an amp or powered speakers) to the Aux Send (1 or 2) on the back of the console. Then adjust the Aux (1 or 2 - red knobs) on each desired channels to send them to the monitors.

    Hello. I recently purchased at Midas Vidas 320 desk and I love it. However, to improve longevity of this beauty I would like an EPS 1200 but cannot find one online. Seeking any help here if possible. Does Midas have any back stock of discontinued products they would sell ?

    Thanks,

    Nick

      Nigel67 Hi N1Ckp. Please contact our spares team and they will be able to advise on the stock availability of a psu. This can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Spare Parts tab and submit a ticket. The only other option would be to post on some of the Midas FB forums and see if anyone has a second hand one. Try 'Long Live Midas Analogue Consoles'. Hope this helps.
