    Hi, could someone confirm on a midas M32, firmware 4 or above that you can store a snippet with the master L/R fader at 0.0 and when it is loaded it puts that master fader back at 0.0?

    I'd really appreciate it. 

    Cheers,

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Troy, I just tested a snippet to zero Main LR on both the X32 and X32-Edit and it works file. What version of firmware 4 are you using? Make sure you have updated to the latest (4.04). Also make sure you don't have any snippet safes enabled.

      • M32 Snippet to store L/R Master Fader Level - doesn't work?
        TroyKrueger Thanx Paul, I’ll update the firmware (it’s currently 4.02 or 3... not there now- but it’s not 4.04 for sure) and report back. I can also confirm there are no safes enabled and also that a snapshot also does not change the master fader . Cheers

      • M32 Snippet to store L/R Master Fader Level - doesn't work?
        Paul_Vannatto The Wing uses snapshots (which are similar to M32 Scenes). I thought you were using a snippet. If you export the snippet to a file does it look like this?

        #4.0# "Main to Zero" 0 0 0 0 1
        /main/st/mix/fader +0.0

      • M32 Snippet to store L/R Master Fader Level - doesn't work?
        TroyKrueger I will check the snippet I have, in the mean time I can confirm that even after updating firmware to 4.04, when storing a snapshot with the master fader at 0, recalling that snapshot does not restore the master fader to 0, and confirming that there are no 'safes' or 'ignores' in the settings.

      • M32 Snippet to store L/R Master Fader Level - doesn't work?
        Paul_Vannatto Hi Troy, as I mentioned before, snapshots are not part of the X32 terminology. It saves/loads scenes and snippets. I can assure you that the snippet I provided does indeed move the Main LR master fader to 0 db.

        One other thing to clear up, 0 db is the setting about 2/3 the way up on the fader, not all the way down. Hopefully that is what you are referring to.

        Hi everyone!

     

    I am looking for a physical control suface for my MR12. If you have some recommendation please send them to me. I am using the MR12 for a 4 keyboard rig, and the need for physical surface is to control volumes, mutes, and probably  to be able to change snapshots. I am thinking of BCF2000, or Fadefox EC4, or evolution 33. 

    Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you

      KyleJohnson Hi Zoltan, Kyle here with Music Tribe. I recommend you look at the Behringer X-TOUCH. It can run XCTL protocol which is the protocol that the M Air mixers use.

    I have read certain brands of USB thumb drives work better than others for recording from the consoles front usb port. Anybody have  some advice? Also can I go larger than 32 GB for the capacity? Thanks in advance.

    We are working on a show for our church. There is 1 scene, 15 snippets and 31 cues. The snippets simply mute and unmute channels depending on what is happening on the stage. This is not a complicated show

    We can create all of the snippets and save them. We can also create all of the cues and assign the appropriate snippets. We go through the save process and export a copy to a flash drive. Everything works fine until the computer is shut down and we reload the show.

    Upon reloading the show, the snippets are all off by one, on both the MIDAS board and the M32 Edit software. So Snippet 0 which was "Mute All" is now "Unmute All" (which was originally Snippet 1). Snippet 0 now displays as "Unmute All", as does Snippet 1. However, Snippet 1 is actually "House Audio". Each snippet is off by 1, even though the title is correct. The original Snippet 0, "Mute All" is gone.

    I originally started setting up Snippets with Snippet 0. When the loading issue began, I tried starting at Snippet 1, leaving Snippet 0 empty. Now everything is 2 off.

    I am at a loss of what to do. The last time I used the Show Control was last year and had no issues. We have done the firmware updates, and now I am experiencing this. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Bob, what firmware version are you using? This was fixed in the latest update (4.04).
      • December 6, 2020
    • PMBCTechCrew
      PMBCTechCrew I'll check this afternoon. I believe it is 4.02 (so it looks like I missed one).

    Hello
    there is an important bug in Firmware V4.03 and V4.04 when using an extension card DN-32-WSG; the sound saturates and the gain is changed...

    in fact the thing is not more usable !!!!!
    no problem in V4.02 (I just returned to that Firmware and have no more worries )

    so I hope they will fix it as soon as possile !
    thanks and cheers

      Paul_Vannatto I don't have that card to validate. But I have reported this issue to the beta testers team.
      • December 5, 2020
    • zigson
      zigson Thanks Paul
      I forgot to specify : the the card is running under SG Firmware V9; as I use it with MultiRack-Soundgrid (which is not compatible with SG V11 software)
      but as I said : all is fine until Midas software V4.02….. the two software who came after were bugged ! and its a heavy bug so that the card becomes completely useless (=distortions and artefacts !!)

      zigson Hello
      are there some news about this important bug out there ?? for most of the postings on this Forum I see MusicTribe-People responding; but no official answer to my post here!
      this is an important bug and the DN32-WSG-card is no more usable with Console-Firmware V4.3 and V4.4….
      something happened in the code between Firmware V4.2 and 4.3 that makes the card unusable
      when does Musictribe fix that ugly bug ?? are the users condemned to stay with console Firmware 4.2 ???
      (note: I use the card with Driver V9 and Waves MultiRack-SG V9.80; but same bug again also with Waves SoundGrid-Studio and SoundGrid Driver !! )

      florianherm Hey, I am having a similar problem by using the X-WSG card. We are getting some serious clicks and cracks from our Waves Card Channels. Its really messed up. We had to downgrade the X32. Would also be cool to have some older firmware versions available on the Behringer website :D

      Please give us a status update on fixing that bug :)
      • January 13, 2021
    • zigson
      zigson hello all there
      I have some marvelous news; Musictribe seems not to be willing to answer, I finally contacted directly Waves and they answered instantly and gave me the right solution :

      Here is what the Waves Support-Team wrote to me :
      >>>>>>>
      We are aware of this issue and this is not a bug but a compatibility issue between the new firmware of the console and V9 SoundGrid applications.
      As an alternative you can consider switching to SuperRack application, which works fine with the new firmware.
      Let me know if any further information or assistance is required.

      which means : spend another 600 bugs and you’ll be fine !!!
      its just a shame !! and its sad, sad, sad…..

    Hi guys!

     

    With one of the bands I'm working with we started bringing our own console to all shows the last year and a half. A simple setup with M32r + DL32. It works great. Unfortunately, on the last show between the two covid lockdowns (where I live some concerts were allowed from July to September, before the second 'wave' hit), the rotary knobs/pots started acting very janky and not responding very wel. I especially noticed since it was a short changeover, things had to go fast. But when I turned them fast, they responded very weird. It's not all of them, but especially the EQ, dynamics and preamp section.

     

    Is there a quick solution to this that I can do myself? Do some cleaning inside? I guess it's a bad contact due to a bit of oxidation or something, I can't think of anything else. 

     

     

    Anyway, since there's not a lot of shows going on right now I have time to fix things before the tour gets going again.

     

    Thanks in advance!

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Gerold, since the M32R is still under warranty (10 years), I would recommend you submit a repair ticket (using the Support on top menu above) and send it in for Midas to have a go-over during this lock-down. When it is out of warranty, many pro console refurbishers use contact cleaner such as DeOxit D5 to clean dirty pots. But you need to know how to use it correctly.

    Hi

    +48 working on input channels when local inputs selected but surface +48 button won't light on channels up when AES inputs routed to channels. 
    feature or problem? 
    thanks.

      DavidKnighton Hello Damian Kyle,
      Where are you getting your AES50 inputs from? Are they coming from a stagebox or another console? Check under SETUP>PREAMPS there is an option to LOCK STAGEBOX. Make sure that option is unchecked. Also, the console can not controls preamps coming from another console directly. You have to use the HA REMOTE feature and set the levels/+48 on the PREAMPS page.
      • December 4, 2020
    • DamienKyle
      Paul_Vannatto Check on the Setup, preamps screen that the particular AES50 input has phantom enabled. Also check the channel source that it is indeed assigned to the particular AES50 input.
      • December 4, 2020
    • DamienKyle
      DamienKyle Thanks, guys. The channels are properly assigned to AES50A. The +48 surface button works fine when the DL32 is actually attached and also when the channels are set to local inputs. No other console involved. The stage box lock is unticked. Just wondering if surface +48 don't work when channels are assigned to AES50?
      • December 4, 2020
    • DamienKyle
      DamienKyle ...and the stage box isn't connected.
      • December 4, 2020
      • M32R Live +48
        Paul_Vannatto That would be correct, Damien. It is because the console is actually controlling the preamps (gain, phantom) remotely, since those preamps are an integral part of the XLR inputs of the DL32. If the DL32 is not connected, there is no way of controlling those preamps.
        • December 4, 2020
    • DamienKyle
      DamienKyle Thanks, Paul.
      That’s what I thought. It’s just a bit of a workaround if you want to programme scenes at home with no stagebox connected.
      You can actually turn the +48 on in the preamps page, so no real biggie. The offline editor is a bit of a pain in the ass. If it looked a bit like the routing page, etc. it’d be much better.

    Hello all.

    If from an M32 I create a channel preset file (*.chn) using M32-Edit can that preset file (*.chn) be applied to an MR18 channel using M-Air-Edit?

    What about the opposite direction (MR18>M32)?

    Thx in advance for your help.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Dwayne, yes they are interchangeable (both direction), since both the M-Air and M32 uses the same FX engine.

    Hi! Mc-1 on Midas Pro6 (bay1) doesn't start at all, only blank (black) screen, no system information (motheboard information, linux images loading, etc..., nothing) on load. Mc-2 still works normally, mixer console fully operates. No specially conditions or events did not precede accident. What actions need to be taken? May be BIOS battery? Thank you.

      DavidKnighton Hello Alexander Lukin,
      Check if MC-1 will boot to BIOS upon startup. Plug the keyboard into MC1 USB KEY and whammy the DELETE key or F2 key (I forget which) while you power the desk on. The command should force the MC into BIOS. This will clue us to whether the MC is still alive.

    Hello guys,

     

    I have m32,and it's firmware was never updated before since it was purchased two years ago. I'm planning to update the firmware with the latest firmware. Any thoughts about updating firmware from version 3.11 to 4.04?

    i appreciate any feedback you may have..

    thanks.

    • MichaelVincentd
      Paul_Vannatto Hi Michael, yes you can upgrade from 3.11 to 4.04. Make sure you backup your cues, scenes and snippets, as well as any preset in the Library before doing the upgrade. Exporting a show will include the cues, scenes and snippets, but will not include the library presets. Also write down all of the settings on the first 4 screens of the Setup section, since that cannot be backed up using 3.11

      • FIRMWARE VERSION 4.04
        MarkNorgren Paul, I just upgraded to 4.04 on my M32. Is there any real need to upgrade to 4.04.1 if I'm on a Midas? The release notes mention a Behringer issue, but no Midas problems. TIA
        • December 2, 2020
      • FIRMWARE VERSION 4.04
        Paul_Vannatto Hi Mark, the X32 and M32 DSP engine are identical. The only difference in the consoles are the hardware (and the bling). There are a number of bug fixes and some new features. The one feature I like the most is the new DCA spill.
