    Hi folks,

     

    My venue has two Pro3's that are on their way out, and the monitor desk is all but unusable as lots of parameters are fluttering during use, including the gains, output levels and even EQ filters.

     

    So our plan until we can get that fixed is to swap in the Pro2 for monitors that we use in another venue. So we'd be using a Pro3 for FOH, connected to the 431, then using the 371 for DSP, and then the Pro2 for monitors.

     

    We hooked it up last night, but could not get the two 431's we have to sync with it. Is there a procedure that we need to follow to get this to happen? Or do we need to dumb down the firmware on the Pro2 to the same as the 431's for them to talk to each other?

      Nigel67 Hi ChrisBallard. It should be as simple as unplugging the DL431 cables from the Monitor PRO3 DL371 AES50 ports and plugging them in to the PRO2 AES50 ports. You will need to make the PRO2 a Master or Slave depending on how the Monitor PRO3 was set up in the Preferences - Configuration page (if Slave assign the clocking Port) and highlight whether you are using the A or B DL431 inputs, but then you only have to assign the DL431's in the Config page. What software version are the DL431's running? If they are running 2.6.1 then that will be fine with the PRO2 or if they are running 3.4.6 then that will also be fine.

        ChrisBallard We did that. I'll have to check the firmware version and see what we're on. I'll update you!

      So we had some more time to work on this on Monday and we discovered that we needed to set up a direct Generic AES between the two desks, seemingly because they were using separate DSP units. Once we did that, we changed the Pro2 to Master, the Pro3 to Slave, and changed the source of the Word Clock to be the Pro2. That made things 95% happy. Now, the only trouble is that the Pro3 is stating an Application Error on the X CAT5 from the second 431. But everything is passing audio and recognizing the 431 splits. Our manager is going to work on that today while I'm off.

    I have a singer that plays acoustic routed into 1 stage monitor. How do I eq and compress these two sources independently into one monitor bus? (pre Fader)

    When i playback my audio/waves frommy DAW to M32 card and using channels 25 to 32 (4 stereo) and the rest of channels for my bandvocals etc. I get a enorm distorted signal from my soundcard on channels 25 to 32 what do i wrong

      KevinMaxwell Are the sample rate of what you are trying to playback and the M32 set the same?

      KevinMaxwell Same basic answer I wrote to someone else on here. Go to your original post in this thread and paste your scene from the M32 here and we can take a look and we might be able to tell you if it is a configuration error.

      Sorry Kevin, i dont know what you exactly mean?must i search for an earlier post of the same problem

      • when i load my scene for using my DAW to play audio to M32
        KevinMaxwell NO! Copy the scene that you loaded onto your computer that exhibits this problem. Then Go to your original post in this thread and paste that scene from the M32 there and we can take a look and we might be able to tell you if it is a configuration error.

        Unless they changed something in this forum you can only paste a scene if you started the tread and you do it by putting it in your first post in this thread.

    I have a M32  with an DN32-Adat Card. I would like to be able to use channels 31-32 for input from my keyboard and be able to send signal to what ever track I choose. 1 thru 24. Is this possible and does anyone know how to do it? Thanks!

    • twilliams
      Paul_Vannatto Unfortunately your post is unclear. Is your keyboard connected to inputs 31-32 of the DN32-ADAT. What exactly do you mean by "whatever track I choose"? "Track" is not a correct term in the X32.

      GaryHiggins I don't disagree with Paul, it's not clear what you want to do...but on the off chance you are asking about sending specific mixer inputs to DAW tracks using your M32, that can be done within the DAW software by selecting the desired specific ch input for the DAW track.

      Selecting what sources get sent from the Adat outs in the first place is done with the card out routing menu and can be almost anything in any order these days thanks to the "user" in/out routing menus.

      Within the mixer itself and in general, you can't send a ch to another ch. You can send any ch or multiple ch's to a bus (and that bus to an Adat out ch) You also can change any ch source to any specific ch from the available input pool on that channel's config page source dropdown list. So lets say ch 1 can have Ch 32 as its source instead of the original Ch 1-but not both at once.

    Anyone knows any info on accessories for the 96 like external monitors, key board, mouse, monitor brackets and Dante card. If you have done any please post pictures. Also report any bugs or different situations. Thanks!

    We are using the X-dante card in our M32 to send audio to our Tricaster video production system. Does anyone know if i can set the dante output from my M32 to be post fader so I can contol my livestream mix from the board instead of the Tricaster, which has a very crappy mixer in it.  I realize I can send the dante audio to a seperate computer first to mix it and then to the Tricaster, but I am looking for a more streamlined solution. Thanks in advance.

      GaryHiggins Your card out ch's are what you set them to be by the M32 routing. You can send post fader as long as you are using the Out 1-16, ultranet out and aux out as the categories for "card out" AND you set each ch in those routing menus as a post fader tap point. Dante will send as its ch's whatever you rout there. So yes, you should be able to.

    Hello, everyone!

    This is my setup:

    Midas M32 > AES50A > Midas DL16 > Midas DL16 

    Midas M32 > AES50B > (6) individual DP48s

    Midas M32 > Dante > Dante Bose Amp

     

    Here is my problem. I am getting a split second cutting out during performance. It usually happens once during the set and doesn't happen again. I am running shielded ethercon connectors on AES50A & B as well as the DP48s. I am running a shielded Cat 7 ethernet cable with no connectors in-between from the Dante to Dante. 

     

    It's worked well for years but trying to figure out why all of a sudden I'm getting this to cut out. Nothing has changed. I have already changed the dante wire and run new. Not sure where I go from here. TIA for any suggestions!!

      GaryHiggins There is a (fairly) recent update to the XDante card, Are you also using latest Dante Controller software.? it should have alerted you via the Updater, but maybe not, still might be a possibility worth checking.

    Has anyone connecteed one of the 4 ports  aes50  on a HUB4 to a aes50 on a x32. does the POE damage the AES50 connection on the x32?

    • WilbertLichtenb
      GaryHiggins No does not damage.
      • Feb 26
    • WilbertLichtenb
      Nigel67 Hi WilbertLichtenb. As Gary has mentioned, the PoE will not damage any equipment that does not require PoE. The PoE is only switched on when the HUB4 detects that the unit connected to it qualifies for it.

    We're ready to send some more people out for the in-person sessions.  https://www.midasconsoles.com/training.html has some June dates marked "Full". It isn't really clear what year these dates are for, either.

    I'm looking for the contact person on these trainings, any future dates, maybe how to wait-list our people in case the June slots open up.  Thanks!

    How do I send all channels from a midas 32 to an x32 for secondary mis. This must be clean 

    0 16
    • Darrell1
      Paul_Vannatto Are you wanting to send the same inputs to the X32 or the channel strip outputs (including processing)?

      We are trying g to use the m32 as the main mix and send all channels to a x32 to be mixed for online, we are concerned this will not be a clean split

      We are thi king about using Dante for this?

      • Feb 24
    • Darrell1
      Paul_Vannatto I take it by your reference to "clean split" you just want the physical inputs transferred, correct? If you are planning to use the DN32-Dante and X-Dante cards for this, simply duplicate the assignments on the Routing, Inputs screen to the Routing, Card screen. That will make both the M32 and X32 have the same inputs.

      Is there a reason why you don't simply use the AES50 to connect the M32 and X32?

      If I use the aes will the receiving board be affected by the first board. I am talking about gain le els etc
