    Hi

    Today I've received my first x-touch mini (I'm using a x-touch and two x-touch extenders quite a while).
    After some test I got it working with my software, but there are some points where I would need help:

    • The unit seems not to send any 'Button released' midi messages ( while the x-touch does).
    • Is there a possibility to disable the button -> button LED link inside the x-touch mini? I'm controlling some switches in my software by the x-touch. The app sets the button LEDs according to the current state. When I set the options in the app directly, then the LED buttons reflect the state correctly. When I use the buttons, this does not work correctly, because the LED reacts to the release of the button..

    Regards

    Tomy

      Hi Tomy ( @TomyNeumann ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  What DAW are you using?  Does it have a driver for the mini? Do you have the mini set to MIDI or MC mode?  In MIDI mode, the button behavior is based on the mode set for the individual buttons, whether it be momemtary or toggle.  In both cases, a value of 127 is sent for a press or latch and a 0 is sent for a release or unlatch.  Also, in MIDI mode, the LED state needs to be set/unset with MIDI messages coming from the DAW.  In MC mode, the button behavior and LED state is dictated by the MCU driver in the DAW. 


       


      Hope this helps,


      Ken

      Hi Ken


      Thanks for your reply. I'm using my own app, which creates and handles MIDI. The x-touch mini runs in MIDI mode.
      Your statement is okay for the x-touch extender (and the x-touch full, I assume), but not for the x-touch mini.
      But the x-touch mini behaves different. Even with no midi handling device running, the state of the LEDs changes according to the state of the button.
      Furthermore the button does not send a NoteOn MIDI Message when the button is released.

      Well,


      The button release does not send Note On with velocity 0 but will send Note Off with velocity 0 (opposite to x-touch extender, where it will send Note On with velocity 0 when released).

    I have a Behringer X32 producer. It works fine. I did a firmware update and now the monitor outputs located near the main outs 7/8 no longer work. I tested the monitors and the cables and they work fine with other gear. It is not a routing issue as I have everything set properly. In addition, the headphones work fine. The view button in the talkback section indicates an output source for the monitors. I have tried every monitor source and none of them work. This monitor source still works with the headphones and the mains work fine. I don't seem to be getting any signal from the monitor out jacks. I thought they were tied to the main outputs. My only option at this point seems to be to go back to the older firmware version, but I would rather not do that as I like the new graphics found in this firmware update.

    What am I doing wrong? any solutions or anyone else having this problem?

      Export your scene to a file and attach it to your next post (Choose File below). We will have a look and better advise.

      Thank You for your help paul but the problem is now solved. I did a firmware update from 4.1 to 4.2 and now the problem is fixed. It seems as though this last firmware update in January fixed my issue. Thanks for your willingness to help.

    Hello. I am setting up an MX32 Rack for the first time for a customer at a church. We have a fairly simple setup. 5 mics, CD player, and some auxiliary floor jacks. I’m basically trying to give them quick presets to use for mic settings with and without cd sound and or instruments. Can someone steer me in the right direction please.

      Do you have the speakers and mixer working together already?  


      Do you need routing setup, or are you just needing some fader/eq/compressor suggestions for a some channels?

      Hi Bob. Thank you for your response. Yes, I have speakers and amps working with the mixer. I have my inputs labeled and I have audio matrixes set up for a recording output and for another amplifier feeding speakers in a fellowship hall. I’m just trying to give them some quick presets to recall for mic level settings. I’m assuming this is even a possibility. Forgive my ignorance, I have 21 years in high end residential audio experience and hardly any pro audio experience

      I have figured out the scenes and learned to save and recall them. That seems to be more of what I was looking for and not necessarily presets. 


      Is there a way to automatically recall a scene upon power up?

    i have been using Tracktion 7 to record using my X18 for a few years now.  I switched to linux about a year ago, and i am a little confused on the best options to choose for the input and outputs in Tracktion 7.  Does it really matter which X18 option for input?  I even used the pulse audio option and it seemed to work.

    Some people (including me) have had trouble creating custom boot and lock screens. I had created a "bmp" with all the correct attributes: 

    CustomBoot.bmp:
    - Must be named CustomBoot.bmp
    - Located at the root of the USB drive
    - Bitmap only (.bmp)
    - 8 bit indexed mode (not rgb)
    - Maximum size : 799 x 399 px
    - Minimum size : 10 x 10 px
    - Colours : 256 max (no particular color palette)
    - background color will be 1st colour in customboot.bmp palette
    - boot text color will be 2nd colour of the palette

    CustomLock.bmp:
    - Must be named CustomLock.bmp
    - Located at the root of the USB drive
    - Bitmap only (.bmp)
    - 8 bit indexed mode (not rgb)
    - Maximum size : 799 x 399 px
    - Minimum size : 10 x 10 px
    - Colours : use colour palette embedded of the attached image.
    - don't change the order of the colours
    - use dithering if you want a smooth image

    I used Photoshop and save the files. No Joy. I then used the example files, made a small change and saved it in Photoshop. Still No Joy. I reached out on these forums and was recommend to use Irfanview. These are my conclusions.

    I did a little research. The bmp file format (a microsoft invention) has many different versions. Our mixer (apparently) can't read all versions. Photoshop (at least my version) saves the file with a header the X32 refuses to open. I took my Photoshop edited files and opened them with Irfanview and them promptly saved them (no processing at all). My mixer is now happy to open both the CustomBoot And CustomLock files.

    Conclusion: Save the files with Irfanview

    Hello, 

    I used to be on here as Bob Hamil, but under the new forum, my username is used, but my password doesn't work anymore, and I don't have that email anymore, so my old account can't be logged into.  

    It doesn't look like the old forum posts are searchable for my current issue. I'm looking for a sticky introducing the new forum, but don't see anything. Are the posts from the old forum archived? There was so much good info in there.  

    Thanks, 

    Bob

      @bhamilwelcome back!!....the info exists here somewhere...I don'y know exactly how to access it. I'll leave that to others who have more insight. This forum has changed so much, don't know where to start. It's a struggle on many levels, most of us here learned how to cope-I still prefer the old except for a very few things-some things are way better. It is what it is as they say.

      Hi Bob @bhamil 


      Welcome back. Yes much has changed with this "new-fangled" forum, including my ability of working with the back end of the forum. Usernames rules have changed as well. Mine use to be Paul Vannatto. Now, spaces are no longer allowed, so I had to change it to Paul_Vannatto (close enough). I can help you change your username or you can do it yourself (in your profile). Let me know if you need any help with this.


       


      All of the old posts and threads are still here. But because there is no "usable" structure, it is more difficult to find things. Most of us now simply use the Discover, Updates and select the Recent Updated on the side bar. If you do want to search for old posts, use the magnifying glass icon near the top right.

      Hi Paul, 


      Thanks for the info.  If you can reset the password on my previous account that's good, but really it doesn't make much difference.  


      I'd revive a feature suggestion from then, but I can write it up better this time, anyhow. 


      I think it will be confusing trying to look for info that pertains to my gear in two forums.    I have two Racks and a Compact.  


      I know I've read in the old forums some of the info I need.  The website is working poorly here in Michigan, so the search keeps timing out and I haven't been able to see results.  


      Thanks, Bob

      As previously mentioned, I don't have access to this new forum's back end (like I did with the old one). So I can't go looking for your previous account to make changes. What I can do is change your current username to something you would prefer (such as Bob_Hamil). Of course you also can do that by accessing your own profile (click on the icon at top right corner beside the British flag).

      Bob, there is only one forum. They migrated all of the old posts and threads to this new forum and the old forum went bye bye (unfortunately). But it has become a norm simply to start over again in posting topics, even though there were previous posts pertaining to the same subject (simply because it is so hard to find things anymore).

    Hi,

    I have X32 compact input chanels 1-16 for a few weeks and today got S16 snake to expand desk to use chanels 17-32. Can anyone help with the Routing for this.

      Hi Robert @RobertHabicher 


      Connect the S16 to the AES50 A port (of both the S16 and the X32) using a shielded cat5e/cat6/cat7 with ethercon ends. For the input routing, on the Routing, AES50 screen assign AES50 A1-8 and A9-16 to the 3rd and 4th banks of 8. For the output, it depends on what you want to send to the 8 outputs of the S16.

      Hi Paul, X32 is working good with inputs 1-32. Outputs 1-8 appear to be duplicated at S16 ! Can S16's outputs be out 9 to out16?. please tell me how

      The new firmware was released today. It may take some time to show up in the download section.


       


      They also submitted the first CoPilot (Phase 1) app to the Apple app store.

      I guess that Mixing Station will hit the store any day soon.

    Hi, we use an Xr16 for our gigs that are mainly in pubs/bars. We have one vocal mic, one kick drum mic, one guitar DI and occasionally one or (very rarely) two overheads on the drums. The mixer feeds 2 x B115Ds and 2 x B1500XP subs. What's the best way to plug the FBQ2496 in for best effect to give us the most headroom on the vocal mic without affecting the guitar sound (obviously we WANT guitar feedback!)? Is it to put it across the MainLR, or just plug the vocal mic into one channel of the FBQ? Or do we need to start routing sends and returns via the AUX ports to just get the vocal channel going through the FBQ?

      @McElviss 


      The FBQ2496 has line-level inputs and outputs so you cannot connect the vocal mic directly to it. You will need to route the vocal mic to an Aux output, connect that to the FBQ input and take the output to a spare XR16 input.


       


      You should disconnect the original mic channel from the Main LR mix - open the channel Main tab and click the LR button to turn it off (grey).

      Thanks Rex. How is best to configure the spare channel the FBQ is plugged into? Switch all the EQ and stuff off and set the channel gain and fader accordingly? Or is it possible to route the input channel directly to MainLR bypassing any of the channel strip?

      @McElviss 


      Yes you could turn EQ and dynamics off on the FBQ return channel. You could use a pre-fader send from the original vocal channel to the Aux out so the channel fader is not used. Then the fader on the FBQ return channel becomes your vocal fader. If you reassign the channel inputs, you could have the FBQ return in the same channel position as the vocal mic input and place the vocal send channel in a less conspicuous position.

      I imagine the FBQ output is a line level signal, so I wouldn't need an input with a preamp?
