    I've seen a few comments from people who don't seem to know what the monitor switch does.
    My own experience mirrors this.
    When the UCA202 is connected to a USB port and I have active input but am not connected to recording software I can't hear the input with the monitor switch set to ON and the volume control up.

    When I launch Audacity I still can't hear the input with the monitor switch on.
    Only when I activate the recording mode can I hear the input signal no matter what position the monitor switch is in providing the volume control is turned up.
    I'm assuming this is the USB playback mode of the UCA202.

    Using Logic I can monitor the "input when connected to the software and assigning input to tracks from the UCA202 - I don't have to be in record mode.When overdubbing in Logic I can hear both the pre-recorded track and the new track but I'm having difficulty discerning what the switch does since I can hear both pre-recorded and overdub tracks with switch in either position and both are controlled by the volume control.

    Is this normal behavior for the UCA202?

    Thanks.

    Hello. I use a lot of virtual instruments in my computer (Kontakt 5, pianos, etc) I have test the X-32 rack with my USB connection. It's not very stable: rythm problem, some sounds don't play even with high buffer settings. Is the FireWire connection will be more stable and reliable with my setup ?

      Florian Gerstenlauer Rythm problems shouldn't be affected by th X32.

      Which program do you use as host? What's your audio, and your MIDI clock source?
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      RejeanDoyon I use Cubase 6.5 with Windows 7 64 bit. It's X-32 internal clock internal clock. I have compare side by side with a RME fireface UFX (FireWire connection). When a lot of virtual instruments are use, the RME is very smooth an stable. On the X-32, some missing or delayed parts and some audio sparks.
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      Florian Gerstenlauer Maybe you should change the ASIO buffer setting. It's possible that the standard setting of the X32 is much smaller. This leads to higher CPU load and the problems you described.
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      RejeanDoyon Yes, i have try this. I have try all combinations. Standard asio settings with 1024 buffer is the most stable.
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      Robert Lofgren Have you tried setting the clock to card instead of internal?



      I've not experienced the type of problem you have. Do you have some more intel to share?

    Hi,

    I have been trying to record using the 302USB (brand new) hooked up to Garageband on my Mac. I have my headphones plugged into the mixer.

    Here is my current setup.

    SM57 mic > LXR input on 302USB > MacBook Pro > Garageband

    1st problem: I keep hearing the faintest (yet incredibly distracting) clicking noise in the left phone of my headphones. It will last for about 10 seconds, go away, then return. It's not any kind of metronome from Garageband that I forgot to turn off.

    2nd problem: about every 30 seconds I hear a loud beep in my headphones. I don't think it has anything to do with signal clipping b/c neither lights that would indicate this on the mixer or Garageband turn red.

    I thought this problem was related to the Garageband, but I would turn the program off and watch a video online with headphones through the mixer, and the beep would return. Could it have anything to do with sound output from the computer?

      SeanFairchild Dear Vince,



      That sounds to me like an issue with the connection between the 302USB and the computer. On a Windows machine I would suspect the driver or the driver's buffer settings as causing this, but I'm no Mac expert Feel free to reach out to our CARE team at [email protected] or by phone at +1-702-800-8290 (US) or +44 1562 732290 (UK) for more assistance if you like!

    What is the best DAW to use with the X32?? And why not some kind of software wasn't supplied with the board. You figure for the price we paid, something would of been nice.

      ChristianBoche I spend a lot of time in studios and therefore I need to know how to operate the most common audio sequenzer. Sadly I just have only very basic skills in Logic and ProTools, but I'm quite good with SawStudio, Cubase&Nuendo, StudioOne and Reaper. I found StudioOne runs nicely with the X32 (both Mac and PC), but it is not that stable in comparison to reaper or SAW. Just my personal experience. So, if you need a sequencer just for studio work, maybe look into Studio One. There is even a complety free version--> http://studioone.presonus.com/free



      If you want to do live recordings, I would go with Reaper! Very stable, nice price and it comes with some important features for live recordings. F.e. you can record your tracks to two differnet paths and you have the option, to record in BradcastWave (wav.64) files. No need to worry about the 4GB file limit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAV#Limitations).



      Hope that helps.

      HenryKlein I use to work with Presonus' Studio One as well, works really nice and it's worth thinking about buying the full version. You can dig into the system with the free version.



      As was a Samplitude user for more than 15 years (before switching to Mac) I would recommend that DAW, too.



      What you will need to manage on your system is a routing setup that differs from DAW to DAW. Most systems can manage templates that are easy to use once they're made. Always remember to start the DAW AFTER the hardware is plugged and seen by your computer.

      Sure. Studio One crashes once in a while, when working with applications that uses lot's of RAM (samples, drumagog) and especially with the build in Melodyne. The 64bit version of S1 works notably better than the 32bit version concerning this topic. It never crashed, when I was just recording...but be careful when doing serious editing and mixing. I have one reaper rig as well, that never crashed within the last three years and I know two guys using reaper for doing live sound (like SAC).

      Just sayin'



      Christian



      When a rock solid live tracking behavior is on the wish list, than maybe look into Nuendo Live-->

      http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/nuendo/nuendo_live.html

      It can restore even unsaved recordings after a power out! BTW: SAWstudio can fix a damaged header too...

      AlanBean I do not yet own an X32, but am doing the research to confirm whether or not to buy. I am considering it for one purpose: to mix live shows and record at the same time. I have MacBook Pro i7 with 16 GB RAM and a Glyph Firewire 800 external drive. On the Mac I am running Pro Tools 9 using Windows 7 via Bootcamp (long story why not the Mac OS...). My glyph drive uses the only Firewire port on the Mac. Can I really record 32 tracks at once via USB from the X32 without dropouts? I have no desire to do any manipulation in the DAW during the show. I will be focusing on live mixing for FOH and will mix the recorded show later back in my Pro Tools HD studio.

      Is anyone recording to Pro Tools with this console successfully?

      This board looks almost too good to be true for the price. I have had a couple of Behringer items break down in the past...reliability means a lot when recording live shows for a client!

    I'm struggling to get Sonar 8 to control the surface on my X32. I can get audio in (via FiWi or USB), but can't control the surface.


    I've set up the surface as a Mackie Control in Sonar, and set up the X32 Remote page as 'Remote Button Enable', Protocol 'Mackie Ctrl' interface as 'Card MIDI'.

    I've got 'REMOTE' button pressed on the X32 and the 8 'bus' faders are all showing 'mute'. I can press 'DCA' and get the transport control on the displays, so it looks like it should work. But it doesn't.

    Any ideas?

      JoeSanborn Hi,

      After testing Sonar with the X32, I can say that it appears this is an issue with Sonar.

      We have contacted Sonar and made them aware, as the X32 is fully compatible with HUI and works fine on ProTools, Logic and Reaper.

      I have also looked at the MIDI data coming out of the X32 and it is sending the correct commands.

      This document may help with other DAW solutions on the PC as well:

      https://www.dropbox.com/s/xtbjbtf117...0functions.doc



      I will post anything we hear back from Sonar.

      MarioSosa Hola, he intentado varias configuraciones de control DAW sin éxito entre SONAR y mi X32 ... Es bastante raro, ya que antes tenía 2 BCF 2000 con SONAR 8.5 que nunca me dieron ningún problema! Agradecería consejo al respecto, ya que me deshice de los BCF xq la x32 los reemplazaba.

      Otra duda es cómo configuro el X32 para grabar POST dinámica y eq. Disculpen mi ignorancia, pero no me queda claro el ruteo.



      Gracias.

      salu2



      La configuración que estoy usando va más o menos así: x32, mackie mr8, powerplay pro, intel i7 3770k, visiontek 3870x2, 16Gb Ram, HDs (7200 rpm) sobre 7 ultim 64 bits. DAW Sonar (no quiero cambiar de DAW, ya que estoy acostumbrado y muy a gusto)

    Hi:
    I just bought the Berhringer X32 and have been trying to connect Waves Multirack software via USB to the XUF FireWire/USB audio interface card. My hopes are to be able to run all the audio inputs during live performance through the Multirack software and back into the X32. I have had some success but have not yet found a "routing" combination that has completely worked. Has anyone tried and done this successfully??
    I am new the forum and would appreciate any thoughts.

      InactiveUser I don't own a X32 yet but I have contacted Behringer and Waves about this and both said it would work. I would contact Waves becuase they were willing to walk me through it. If you e-mail them they will contact you back fast. They have the best customer service I have found anywhere.

      InactiveUser Thanks, Yes I have spoken Waves and they do not know. No one at Sweetwater or Guitar Center in LA knows the answer either. I just got my mixer and I am having success with adding only 4 channels of AUX 1-4 which is only one of the inputs directly into the onboard audio card. I am trying other combinations to see if I can come up with another combination of routing that will allow me more Wave channels. I will let you know what I find.

      ChristianBoche Hi,

      by now it is a bit clumsy, because the daw returns are not useable as digital inserts on all channel without sacrifying the micpres. You can use the Aux inptus though. Behringer R&D is working on a solution as we speak, this routing option will come in a future firmware update. I'm also waiting on this, we just need a bit more patience.

      As long as you want to set up as insert on every channel, it is quite straightforward. If you route Card out to use Local 1-8, 9-16, 17-24 & 25-32 and route Inputs to use Card as source, you have insert on all your channels. You have to do any bypass in Multirack, and all channels have to have a path trough Multirack, but the X32 side is fairly straightforward if you can live with having permanent inserts.



      One question for you, does the Multirack support non-Waves plugins, I have a couple of Waves bundles and would like to use them if that doesn't limit me to Waves-only.

    I corresponded with Gator last month and they seemed oblivious to the wave of X32s that's about to come ashore.

    Our friends across the pond are getting a nice case from Thomann, but shipping from GB would be a bit much!

    This looks great, just wondering if there will be a future update to include controlling other parameters. I use a console now that allows control over almost everything with my ipad. Eq, compression and gating on all channels and buses! Its great to be able to make changes anywhere in the room, or ringing out the monitors with an ipad, that is something I just love and will not sacrifice. I will switch in a heart beat if this is in the works.

      ChrisPainter Hi guys!



      We just wanted to let you guys know we have Version 1.2 available for the XiControl iPad app on iTunes. Of course, there will be lots more updates to come in the future, but we have some significant improvements for you guys on this one!



      XiControl Version 1.2



      What's New in Version 1.2

      * Channel Parametric EQ Control – fine-tune EQ from anywhere in the room

      * Expanded Metering - whether you use the iPad remotely or at the console, levels at a glance

      * Customizable positioning of the Home/Detail/Setup tabs prevents accidental operation

      * Reset panorama to center by double-click on Pan control

      * Precision Numerical info display above detail parameter sliders

      * Bird's Eye View of all faders and meters in Page Select row for quick view of all channels



      IMPROVEMENTS



      * Touch recognition performance improvements

      * Home button function now also on the XiControl icon

      * Channel Sends page now shows the bus color and assigned names

      * Selected bus for the Sends-on-Faders function is now displayed with color, assigned name and icon

      It looks really great.

      I have not tried it only yet, but at least offline there seems to be a lot of bugs.

      -Minifaders not updating

      -Low cut showing a an odd curve on the eq display

      -only bus 1-8 named by deafult



      But great features!! I'll try to test them live tomorrow.



      One thing I just noticed. If im using eq band four as a VEQ and want to change that to PEQ and I might have some unwanted effect while changing as I have to tap trough the low cut etc. I can't see a way to implement it better without loosing the flexibility but maybe someone can come with an idea.

      DaleWaite I was wondering when you were going to update the Ipad App. It was working great until the iphone 5 came out and Apple upgraded their Ipad to work with iphone 5. This caused your App to not show faders on some of the pages. I performed the upgrade and now this bug is fixed. Thanks again.

      InactiveUser One key feature this app needs is access to the output delays.



      Personally I find using an iPad to remote to a computer running x-Control to be a much better remote than the iPad app. I do this also with other digital desks with offline software. IOS is a very limited operating system, using the iPad as a remote to a computer running the consoles offline software live yields far greater control, the only difference is you give up multitouch, but this is moot for system tuning and setup or soundchecks.

    OK, I am a bit unclear about hooking up line level (keyboards and effects) to the X32... in the Sound on Sound review it said the impedance was 12k? input impedance and would accept line level.

    In the Sonic Lab video review it was mentioned a DI Box was required...

    So, should a simple XLR - TRS snake be enough to connect the X32 directly to line level instruments?

    Thanks

      Hello,



      A DI box is not required if the source is balanced. Ultimately, you should be able to connect from balanced line sources directly to the X32 with no problems, because the X32 has a really wide gain range. However, you'll find the gain controls on the X32 will be set very low.



      For the best possible results we still recommend using DI's, because they use balancing transformers. This would be especially important if your going long cable lengths, such as through a 150 ft snake for example.



      Keep in mind, you always have the 6 AUX line inputs as well on the X32. Not sure how many keyboard sources you have, but there's 6 line channels available. These can be balanced or unbalanced sources.





      I hope this helps!

      James,



      Besides the 32 XLR mic inputs on the back, you also have six 1/4" line level inputs. These do not have the Midas designed microphone preamps like the other 32 channels. They are designed for signals that are already line level. If the keyboards are near the X32, this might be an additional solution for interconnecting your keyboards.

      No you're not missing anything, there are 6 MONO TRS inputs and 6 MONO TRS outputs. These are limited function line level only, (no mic pre) with eq but no dynamics.

      jenkinsj So, that doesn't imply 6 stereo line channels. As I thought, there are 6 mono line channels or 3 stereo pairs using the AUX connections.
