    Hello,

    Just a quick question; Will the Behringer SD8 work with the XR18 mixer?

    Thanks in advance for any info,

    Willie

    Hi, I am a newbie here and hope someone can help me. Iam having trouble understanding the routing needed to set up FOH and monitors using x32 and s16.

    Connections all good (green lights)

    Physical Connections:

    L/R outs s16 channels 7/8  (FOH)

    monitor output channel 1 to (stage monitor)

    Problem is I can't get the monitor out (channel 1) to function independantly of the main output fader to create a seperate stage mix.

    I have tried many routing options and youtube tutorials but can't seem to figure it out.

    any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Paul

      Hi @59Tele 


      Give this scene a try.  


      Under Routing: Outputs 1-16 : Main LR to output 7 & 8 and Mix Bus 01 to Output 1


      RoutingAES50 A/BOut 1-8 to AES50-A 1-8


      Make sure the S16 is Mode 1 (Mode 2 should also work with the scene I uploaded)


      Here are (older) instructions for saving/uploading a scene. https://behringerwiki.musictribe.com/index.php?title=Uploading_files_to_the_forum
      Loading back to the mixer should be the opposite of these instructions.

      Hi Dave,


      Sorry to take so long to get back.


      Scene loaded and saved, looks the goods sending on bus/monitor 1 but still not getting output to s16 channel 1, I'm working on this while re patching anologue desk as events at my school come up so have limited  time to continue trying options, I can hear the monitor if I change local out to AES50 but then have no control on faders so I am assuming all good with the AES output to 1 and I must be missing something obvious in routing. Thanks, Paul

      @59Tele 


      If you change local out to AES50 then you will have no control on faders because you are routing Input 1 directly to output 1. 


      Everything looks like it should. Are you sending signal to Bus 1? I'm resending the scene with a few channels sending signal to bus 1.  I'm must be blind, but I'm not seeing a problem.

      Hi Dave,


      Thanks again for your patience and help, I routed to AES50 direct out just to see if signal was going there. Your probably right and there is just bus path I have overlooked.


      I will have a look tomorrow and see how I go.


      Thanks again, Paul

    Hey guys why do I have to always eject and re insert the SD card in my X live card to allow it to record after turning on my X32 rack ?

      No, why do you ask? I leave them inserted and have no problems recording when desired.

    I have a S16 that has been working with our X32 for about two years and just stopped working.  They were connected on AES50 A.  Now they will not sysc and i suspect tha the x32 A port is bad.  I try to connect on B and can't get them to sych using the X32 internal clock and seeting 1 in the S16 (1-8).  I can get the S16 to sync if I switch to AES50B Clock on the X32 and switch the S16 to the right Freq mode, however I still don't get any input.  Changed all the routings to reflect the change from A to B but nothing.  Any Ideas? I even picked up another S16, but it has the same issues.  All firmware has been updated (X32 3.11 and S16 to 2.4)

     

    Any help would be appreciated, charity event in 4 hours, alternative is to move the board to the stage and have everyone plug in directly.

      Hi Mark @aerosmit,


      Welcome to the forum.


      * Make sure that the S16 is in mode 1 (see instructions).


      * Make sure the AES50 is connected to the S16 A port (not the B port - used only for cascading stageboxes).


      * Make sure the X32 sync is set to internal.


      * For inputs from the S16, make sure the Routing home (Inputs) is set to the appropriate AES50 banks of 8.

      All sounds good, just that AES50 A apears to be nonfunctional.  Looks like the X32 need to go in for repair.  I was hoping to limp along with connecting to the AES50 B.

      What do I do whenService doesn't reply to my online request and no one ever answers the phone?  Not too happy with service at this point.

      Hey it seems that we might be having the same issue. Did you ever resolve your board?

    Hello,

    It’ possible or not to export my scenes and shows with iPad app of X18 ?

    Thanks !

      Hi @Catbasse , 


       


      Welcome to the community. Unfortunately there is no way to directly access the filesystem on an iPad due to restrictions Apple has put on the OS.    Shows are nothing more then folders (sub-directories) so this structure can easily be duplicated on a Mac, Windows, or Linux PC.   In order to "export" the scenes from the iPad to the PC, they have to be loaded into the mixer one at a time and then re-saved to the PC as a .scn file using X-Air Edit (or XAirGetScene). 


       


      Let me know what questions you have.

    I have a monitoring question with my XR18. My goal is to set up at least one monitor output to mirror the mains. Using other resources, I discovered that one way to do this (using AUX1 as an example) was to set every channel's send to AUX1 as post-fader. Then, on AUX1, set all channel levels to unity and adjust the overall monitor level with the AUX1 master fader. This works pretty well.

    However, I have several stereo tracks that are linked and I'm not quite sure how those get mixed down on AUX1 since it is mono. So my question is, when stereo channels are summed-to-mono on the aux bus does their overall perceived level change?

    On the FOH side, I have the stereo channels hard-panned L/R appropriately.

    Thanks in advance...

      @RobertRothe 


      Hi Robert, when you send a stereo channel to a mono bus, the two sides are summed. This results in a similar level to that if the two sides were reproduced separately. The combined level will be louder than one side alone, though. You could always reduce the send level by 3dB to compensate for this.


       


      BTW: If you want a copy of the main mix, you could use a Sub Group signal tap for the sends. This is equivalent to a Post Fader send at 0dB.

      @RexBeckett- thank you very much.  The 3db adjustment was the guidance I was looking for and makes complete sense.


      Can you elaborate a bit on the subgroup suggestion?  Even if I used a subgroup, wouldn't I still have the issue that the stereo channels would be "over-represented" on the subgroup?  I do not fully understand subgroups on the XR18, so I'm a bit confused.

    Hi All, I've been a Behringer fan and user for years and stepped up to buying the x-Touch. Cubase Pro 10 recognizes the x-Touch in all three aspects of Studio setup (see images) but nothing works - actions in cubase don't register in x-touch, and moving sliders in x-touch have no effect in Cubase:

      Hi... I don't know if it will help you but I had to put my XTouch on Mackie Control (MC) setting... I found that HUI does not work... 


      You do this by holding the channel 1 select button down while you power on the device... then dial the first dial to MC... then dial the second dial to USB... 


      Then you press the select button again to reset the XTouch... 


      Hope this helps...

      Hi,


      beside Kingurus answer you also have to tell Cubase, that you're using a Mackie Control Unit. Do this in the studio setup (see your first screenshot). Add a new controller by pressing the little plus-symbol in the upper left corner of the window. Be aware that you add a Mackie control unit and that your device is turned on. On the  right side of this screen select x-touch as midi in and out device. Unselect x-touch as midi device on the other control devices (your 2nd and 3rd screenshot) or simply delete these controls as you don't need them really. Click apply, your x-touch should work now.


      Greetings

    I have had an XR18 for over a year now. Use it all the time with our band. Never a problem until now. Today when setting up, we were getting a pulsating "pop" in the monitors. This also happened at a recent gig but after a one power down/up it went away. I noticed when looking at the XR18 that the "power light" was also pulsating. Turned everything off/on and the power light kept on pulsating as before. Unplugged everything except power chord, no difference., Turned off/on several times, no difference. Tried different outlet, no difference. Tried another power chord, no difference, turned off .... waited about 10-20 minutes while doing other things, turned back on and it worked. No pulsating pop and no pulsating power light. Seems to be working ok. Has anyone experienced this behaviour before ??? Smells like a possible power supply problem to me?? Getting nervous. Wondering if I should have it looked at although random things are often very hard to fix?

      Follow up on this issue ....


      They needed to replace part# A09-AW700-00000 (PCB, 409061 REV-A).


      Part was $69.69 CDN Labor was $100 CDN (1hr bench time) - repair time 8 weeks in total !!!! Went in Aug 27/19 picked up Oct. 21/19. We were LUCKY to have a spare from a friend to use while waiting, otherwise we would have had to buy a new one to do our gigs. No way to rent one where I live. This is the problem with getting stuff fixed in our country (Canada). The wait times can be absurd. This was a 1 hr fix after the part was obtained. Other than that, the unit and the concept was worked flawlessly for us over about 3+ years.

    I have an XR18 and running that to a Powerplay. I have some Bluetooth transmitters and a couple pairs of Shure SE215’s. I can get them to pair and working but getting a funky revers/delay sound and it will start getting choppy and delayed. Anyone know how to fix this so they can be used as IEM???

      Hi @TommyScars 


      The latency on a bluetooth transmitter/receiver pair will almost always cause a huge delay in the signal. You could probably time-align it by moving the PA speakers 100 yards away?

      • August 14, 2019

      RichardYClark

      The only way that any Bluetooth devices could possibly be used for IEM is if both transmitter and receivers use the aptX Low Latency audio codecs.
