    My DeepMind12 started to randomly freeze up.

    I have updated to the latest firmware 1.1.2, recalibrated even increased the default fan speed to rule out overheating.

    Nothing has helped. The store reverted me to this site to make an RMA request. But I can’t find how to submit an RMA request to send in the instrument to be serviced. I have the receipt.

    Hello I am really wanting the blue MS 1 and in Canada it seems like only red is available.  Do we know if the blue will be available and if so when?  Thanks.

    I just got a Behringer Neutron yesterday, and it seems like the FREQ MOD IN (VCF cutoff control) has no effect. Before I go looking into repair, is there anything anyone can think of that I might be messing up to make me THINK it's broken (e.g., some normalled connection that needs to be overridden by patching)?

    I first tried OSC2 OUT -> ATT1 IN -> FREQ MOD IN and raised the ATT1 knob, which I expected to bring some noise, then tried some simpler LFO patching and again heard no effect.

      Doh! Answered my own question this morning: I had MOD DEPTH all the way down. FREQ MOD is working fine, and I now know I don't need to use up an attenuator on it, thanks to MOD DEPTH.

    In the spirit of XAirRemote (inspired by @EdGelmetti ), I've started work on X32Remote (inspired by @droberts ). 

     

    X32Remote is a bridge that sits between a TouchOSC or Lemur client and an X32 console and allows the client to have two-way communication with the X32.  Why is this needed? Anyone who's tried to get TouchOSC or Lemur to work with an X32 knows that they don't support the single "listen" OSC port in the same way X32 Edit does, so they can't carry on a two-way conversation.  Also, neither client was designed to periodically send the required "/xremote" OSC command to the console to keep updates alive.  X32Remote solves both ot these issues. 

     

    So far I have channel and bus master fader, mute, pan, and solo working as well as dca on/off and fader. My next task is to implement scene loading so X32 scenes can be loaded with a single button press. 

     

    I'm currently developing on the Raspberry Pi so all of the Alpha binaries will be for that platform. I plan to suport Mac, Linux, and Windows in future builds. Please let me know what controls you'd like to see implemented on the bridge.  Bus sends for monitor mixes come to mind.

      I'll have the first alpha build ready later today for anyone who wants to try it out.  Again, it will only be available as a Raspberry Pi binary for now.

    I’m using an X32, connected to two daisy changed S-16’s on AES50 A. All was well until the board was powered up for an evening service last night.  No changes were made, and a base-line scene was loaded.  There are 4 condenser mics, all of which have phantom power applied.  The phantom power LED is “on” at the board, as well as on the S-16’s.  However, the condenser mics don’t work. When I turn phantom power on, or off, either at the board, or on the S-16, the board and S-16 show the same state (either on or off) Tried all 4 on another system and all functioned fine.  Put a “Sound Tools XLR Sniffer” on the line at the microphone, and it shows no power. Checked the routing and it’s OK (otherwise the lights wouldn’t show on the S-16 when toggled on or off I assume).  Also checked “Setup” screen, “pre-amp” tab, and the HA setting are appropriate (not split).  Finally, checked the “Sniffer” on the other system and it too functioned appropriately (lit up on a channel when phantom power was supplied.  I’ve also checked the cable and runs under the stage by plugging a dynamic mic into the same input and it worked perfectly. Am I overlooking something obvious, or do I have a power supply problem?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

      @JamesCarney 


      From the results of your tests and the fact that the problem is on multiple inputs, it seems likely that the 48V power supply in the S16 has failed.

      Are the 4 mics on one S16 or spread out over both of them? If they are all on one of them did you try swapping the S16s to see if the problem is on both or only one of them?

      Thanks for the reply Kevin.  They are spread across the two S-16's.  Podium mic and suspended choir mics on one unit, and some drum pencil condensers and a condensoer for an acoustic guitar on the other. My next step will be to disconnect the S-16's re-route the inputs back to local and see if I get phantom power on any channel that way.  After that, I'm out of ideas, other than it being a power supply problem. Is there a another way to test the power supply before sending the board out for repair?

      Thanks Rex.  From your response it appears you think the problem is in the S-16 unit rather than the board, which would be the "best of the worst" situations as opposed to it being in the board. If it were just one S-16 that failed, would it impact both units since they are daisy chained? The problem is with both units. Any other way to check the power supply that would would confirm the problem is isolated to the the problem before shipping the unit back for repair (it's still under warranty)?

      @JamesCarney 


      I had not understood that phantom power wasn't working on both S16s. It isn't impossible but not so likely that both units have failed 48V power supplies. 


       


      I would try disconnecting the S16s from the console and all input/output cables. Set one S16 into mode 11 (Daisychain Master). Plug your XLR tester into one of the inputs and use the control panel to switch phantom power on. If there is still no phantom, a power supply problem is most likely. If phantom power works, there may be some problem in the cables.

    Hi there. Our church bought an x32 Compact a week ago. I am still trying to figure out how to set up a stereo mix. I have a MA400 which was used for monitoring on the previous analogue mixer. I was just wondering about what you need to do in order to get the stereo monitoring from the x32 for the MA400. Our current bus setup is:

    Bus 1~6: 6 monitoring bus (pre-fader) assigned to output 1~6

    6 subgroups

    4 fx bus 

    I know I need to link bus 1 and 2, but it gets a bit confusing after that. MA400 only has one TRS input for monitoring. You do have a choice between going mono or stereo with a dip switch. Do I need to use the physical output 1 and 2 using some sort of a Y-cable (left and right XLR to a stereo TRS) and feed it to the MA400, or is there other proper ways of connecting it?

      Hi Ray, welcome to the forum.


       


      You are correct - for a stereo monitor feed you would link two buses and route them to XLR outputs. To connect the two XLR outputs to the MA400 input you need a cable like this.  The cable wiring is:


      Stereo TRS Cable.PNG


      You could also consider using individual monitor amps so that each user has a convenient volume control. See this thread for details on using a Powerplay P2 for this. The thread includes information about the required cables.

      Thank you very much for your fast response. Really appreciate it. Just a quick another question - after I hook them up with the correct cables, would simply panning the channels in my monitor mixbus be all I will need to do?

      @ctzeninsane 


      By default, the send from a mono channel to a stereo Mixbus pair will feed equal signals to both sides. If you open the Sends tab for the channel, you will see a pan control that allows the channel to be moved in the stereo field. The channel sends for your monitor buses should be one of the pre-fader options. Post EQ is usually a good option as it includes most channel processing apart from compression.


       


      If you need any help with mixer configutration and/or settings, save your scene file and attach it to your post (See Choose File button below).

      I appreciate your advice and sorry about the late reply. My last question would be, in that case, since I would only get 3 monitor outputs if I wanted to have stereo mixes for everyone, is it possible to use the 6 aux outputs as extra 3 stereo monitor sends by converting my subgroup to prefaders then route them to the aux outputs, so I would get a total of 6 stereo monitor outputs?

    I am not sure if it is a bug in sequencer but if you edit a pattern it is not possible to overwrite a rest with a note. vice versa is possible or note with note too. I run OS 1.07. BTW Great work! Love the Synth.

      Ahh....  have to rmeove the rest and the accent parameter before adding the note . But Sequencer is a bit buggy in some cases. But I think it is a gr8 feature and very powerfull. But a very big feature will be to control all other parameters too, like VCF or OSCI tune or what ever.

    My intention was to feed my sub from the Mono bus.
    Since I have to move to a different layer, just for that handle, I thought it would be cool to assign Mono to a DCA.
    I couldn't figure out a way to do it, so I used a MixBus (instead of Mono) and assigned it to a DCA.
    Is there a way to assign Mono to a DCA, do I have to do it the way I ended up doing it, or is there an even better way?
    Thanks...

      Hi @doubleJ ,

      Matrices, Main L/R, and Mono busses cannot be assigned to a DCA Group. Depending on what you're trying to achieve, you can select 'M/C depends on Main L/R' under Link Preferences in SETUP. This will link the Mono buss level to the Main L/R fader (Turn down the Main, you turn down the subs as well). Otherwise, using a MixBus is your best bet.

      I did see the Depends option, but I still want to have manual control.
      MixBux it is.

      You could use a custom layer to add the Mono bus fader to your normal channels. On X32 Edit, click the User 1 button on the left and then click Edit to define the Channels, Returns, Matrix, LR, M/C etc that you want. If you are using a tablet, Mixing Station MX32 also supports custom layers.

    My bassist has a new bass cabinet with a Hartke 3500 head on it, so now I can output the sound to my XR18. I can also output from "Effect"-out on the head to the XR18 and return the signal back to the head before outputing from the cabinet. 

    I'd like to figure out a way, if possible, so that I can use an XR18 channel fader on the master fader panel to control the sound in the bass cabinet. I think I can bring the signal in on a channel and output it from an Aux with a xlr-to-trs plug back to the head, but then I'll have to control the volume using a fader on one of the busses. Is there a way to route the IN/OUT so that the master channel fader control the volume?

    Thanks!

      Hi Mike, you don't need to use a bus. You can drive an Aux output from a channel post fader. For example, the following would drive Aux6 from Channel 10 post-fader:

    I'd like to try to side chain filter compression on my lead guitar based on the vocal channel. That way his sound doesn't have to be faded in and out when we gig live and the vocalist stays forefront when signing. The problem we're having is that the guitarist understandably doesn't like his own signal being cut out from his monitor mix when he's playing; it's distracting for one, but he also needs his volume set where he can hear what he's playing. Is there a way to make sure the side chain compression is only being filtered on the Main L/R and NOT out of the monitor mix?

    FYI, the monitor buses are being sent signal "Post-EQ" which I thought was pre-compression anyways, but I guess not pre-side-chain-compression?

      Hi Mike, welcome to the forum.


       


      If you use the Post EQ signal tap for the guitar channel send to the monitor bus, it will not be affected by the channel compressor. See the block diagram to understand how the signal taps are arranged in the channel processing path.

      Thanks Rex. The Post-EQ tap is being used, but for some reason my guitarist swears he can hear his signal drop in his monitor.
