    hola a todos! tengo una duda. Así sin más, mi interfaz de audio (umc404hd) dejó de dar sonido y aparecía como desconectada. Cuando desenchufé la fuente de alimentación permaneció encendida y ahora apareciendo como conectada. Nunca la usé sin la fuente de alimentación por eso la duda. Ahora está funcionando conectada solamente por usb a la pc, sin la fuente de alimentación. Busqué información en la web pero no encuentro nada.

    Alguien sabe por qué puede ser que haya cambiado esto?

    Gracias!! Saludos!!

      John Matthews My UMC404 has always worked via just the USB or with the Power Supply too. Is it working as normal now or still not recognised when you connect the PSU?

      Diego Torres cuando reconectaba el PSU, la UMC aparecía como desconectada. Tuve que desconectarla completamente, conectar primero el PSU, y luego el usb, y entonces empezó a trabajar normalmente como antes.

      Diego Torres la pregunta ahora sería: cuál es el sentido de conectarla vía PSU? Cuál es el beneficio?

      John Matthews The PSU helps when using the UMC with devices which can't provide enough power

    Hi everyone...

    this is a strange problem I've been facing for few weeks.

    On the beginning I noticed the problem while I was recording my guitar with my daw (through the Uphoria UMC204HD)... during the parts I was playing, I got several random input audio peaks.... even when I was not strumming or playing at all. So I thought it could be due to my guitars. Or to my cables. Or to the input ports of the UMC204HD.

    Well...these are not the cases... I verified today that these random audio peaks occur even when nothing is connected to the Behringer interface (even with the input volumes set to 0).

    By the way, these input glitches are always present: I opened the windows audio settings and in the input settings (IN 1-2 BehringerUMC 204 192K) you can see the bar of the input level that continuosly gets input audio peaks.... even if nothing is connected.

    Any idea about this strange matter? I don't know if it can be due to some windows update. I've just checked even for possible viruses or malware but it doesn't seem the case. But i can't record or play anything at the moment, it's a mess with those audio peaks...

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi. Just got the mixer out the box and connecting it all up. The ground connectors are in really tight and won't budge. Do I get pliers and work on them, or should they just be finger-tight, and so possibly faulty? I'm concerned about damaging them. 

    Also, how do I register the product?

     

    Many thanks. J

      KevinMaxwell What ground connectors are you talking about? I just looked that device up and I don't see any removable ground connectors. If you have to use a tool to remove something you are probably doing something wrong.
      • Oct 18
    • Jonathan Lister
      Jonathan Lister Thanks for the response. In the back of the unit the gold knobs labelled ‘GND’. On every other device I’ve used like this you unscrew them a little, attach the forked end of the ground cable (for example, from the turntable), then tighten back up to make a connection. These ones don’t shift!

    would this CBI be a good option? I want to have a 16 channel splitter to split my X32 Rack to have the band control their EIMs and FOH control everything else.

    also is this considered a digital or anolog snake?  And which would be better to have?

        Rex Beckett It would have been better to start a new discussion for your question. You usually get sent the code for Tracktion Waveform OEM by email after you register your purchase. You can do this by clicking on Support at the top of this page.
        • Oct 18
    • Mike Reinstein
      Rex Beckett Hi Mike, that splitter does not provide any isolation between the two outputs so it may not be the best option. It is an analogue snake. If your FOH console is also an X32 or M32, you could split the feed digitally in the X32 Rack monitor console by routing it out through one of the AES50 ports and connecting that to the FOH console.
      • Oct 18
    • Mike Reinstein
      Mike Reinstein Oh ok I guess it would depend what the FOH has. What would you recommend i get instead?
      • Oct 18
      • Snake to connect to X32
        Rex Beckett As Kevin has explained, sometimes non-isolated mic splitters work OK. I have experienced occasional problems with ground-loops, though, so I prefer to use transformer-isolated splitters. I would use a pair of eight-channel rack-mount units. There are several options depending on your budget: Palmer RMMS 8; ART S8; Behringer MS8000.
        • Oct 18
    • Mike Reinstein
      KevinMaxwell I assume that you have an X32 for the FOH mixer and you want to use an X32Rack as the monitor mixer. I would suggest that you use the X32 rack on stage (basically it becomes the stage box) and connect the X32 at FOH to it using the proper type of CAT5 cable connected between the 2. The only issue with this method is that you (the X32 & the X32Rack) are sharing the input gain control. But there are ways to deal with that.

      Is this for use with a particular band or for doing sound for different bands? If this is for a particular band letting them mix their own IEMs is a great idea. But there is a learning curve and they have to get used to it. I would not suggest trying to do this when doing sound for bands that have no experience with it.

      If you do decide to use and analog split it usually isn’t a problem doing it hard wired without transformers in-between. I have had bands show up with all of their own mics and stands a digital mixer on stage to control their IEMs and with a hardwired split. They plug everything in and then we plug there spilt tail into our snake (to our Midas M32) and we are all set. It has worked great. It also helped that they were a really good band.

      Regarding the snake that you linked to that can work if all that you need is 16 inputs but I have no idea if that is a good quality unit or not. If it is all your system I would do what I suggested and use the X32Rack as the stage box.
      • Oct 18
    • Mike Reinstein
      Mike Reinstein Got it, just to clear things up - I’m in the band and have an X32 rack which will be on stage with us for IEMs (or if there is no FOH person/mixer we will need to use it to control that too) and we will be playing different venues so the FOH could be different each time.
      • Oct 18
      • Snake to connect to X32
        KevinMaxwell Then the hard wired split is the way to go. Have it all wired up with just the tails to the FOH hanging out. As to the split you linked to I don't know the quality of that. I almost always build my own stuff when it comes to wiring. The 15 foot end is a lot longer then you are going to need if this is all racked up and is likely to get in your way. the XLR panel is a nice feature to have.

    Can someone explain how I assign FX to a channel? For example say I want this FX assigned to channel 2 preamp.  Thanks 

    0 17
    • Mike Reinstein
      Dave Morrison In most cases, you would send a signal on bus 14 from channel 2. Busses 13-16 are setup to send signal to FX 1-4 by default. The returns (from these four effects) are sent back to the main (LR) bus. If you want to add reverb to channel 2, push the "FX 2" button (as shown in the picture. Now Raise channel 2 fader until it sounds good to you. If you raise channel 3 fader, that channels signal will be send to the reverb as well. Press the FX 2 button again and you're now back to the Main (LR) mix.
      If you want to insert an effect in the channel, that's a different procedure but I wouldn't do that for reverb.
      • Oct 17
    • Mike Reinstein
      Mike Reinstein I have the FX2 selected as seen in pic and raised channel 2 fader but not hearing it. Am I missing something?
      • Oct 17
      • Help with FX
        Dave Morrison Yes. You are missing something. I forgot to attach the picture : ( . This will make a lot more sense now. If you mixer is mostly in it's default state, pushing the "FX 2" button (shown in the screenshot) and raising channel 2 fader will work. [NOTE: the button maybe labeled something else—push the button that is the same location] But the Bus 14's Send and Return fader must be up for this to work.
        Pushing the "FX 2) button puts you into a Send-On-Fader mode. This will enable you to send varying amounts of signal from any of the channels to Bus 14 (which then feeds FX2).
        If you have a problem, you can post your current scene file on Dropbox (or equivalent) and we can look at it for you (just post the link).
        • Oct 18
    • Mike Reinstein
      Mike Reinstein Does this look right? I pressed “sends on faders” then went to 14 which is FX2 and turned up volume on channel 2 which I want the reverb on. Still not hearing the reverb but I think this is at least part of the way there?
      • Oct 18
    • Mike Reinstein
      Mike Reinstein Ok so I was able to get the reverb onto the channel I wanted however there is a loss of volume so I may have inserted instead of side chained but not sure. I followed this article to do it. https://dbbaudio.com/2017/behringer-x32-effects-tutorial-inserting-effect/
      • Oct 18
      • Help with FX
        Dave Morrison Check the Channel 2's Details tab. As long as the "Insert" button is not active, you haven't inserted anything. Go to the "FX 1L-2R" bank and ensure that FX2's fader is at 0 dB.
        • Oct 18
      • Help with FX
        Dave Morrison You look at the FX's main page and see if it has been inserted. FYI, X32-Edit hasn't been updated for a long while. It can still function as a mixer, but the routing portion doesn't match firmware 4. I won't use X32-Mix for routing. Only X32-Edit (for computers) or Mixing Station.

    • Justin Lau
      KevinMaxwell I don’t know your level of sound expertise but I have no problem getting the levels up in the headphones to a point where it is too loud. I am using a pair of Sony MDR-V6 headphones. This assumes that you have enough gain on your inputs and you have it set up correctly. If you plug a playback device into some inputs are the meters showing that you have a good level? And if you then hit the Solo button on those inputs do you hear the source? Are you plugged into one of the headphone jacks located on underside of the surface at the upper left and right of the surface?

      Dick Straathof I am not behind the Wing desk but I remember there is a volume setting for the monitors. Hit the View button of the monitors section on Wing and look in the display for the correct function knob... hope this helps

    1- New UMC 22 just installed on windoiows 10. when I use mic and monitor, I can hear the sound clearly through the headphone output. However when I play recording from computer there is no sound. Yes, have configured the playback to use the Behringer output on my settings, but still no sound on playback.  Playback will work ok when switched back to default realtek driver. Your advice please?

    2- Using a Rode VXLR+ adaptor between a Rode mono mic and XLR input. Works fine, except there is are some ms delay between left and right output channels on playback. Tested this on an audient ID4 interface and there is no channel delay. Why does this happen on the UMC22?

    Thank-you for your comments.

      John Matthews Have you turned the direct monitor button off when you're playing back? Otherwise you will just be monitoring the input still.
      • Oct 18
    • Richard Strauss
      Richard Strauss Hi John, thanks for your comments. I've now resolved the issue, but can say it was mainly due to the atrocious user manual for the UMC22 it does not even say I needed to download any software until page 36, having ploughed through loads of rubbish about safety and other languages, I gave up too early. I had been on the net and downloaded an official driver for the UMC22 as well as ASIO4ALL. The driver was screwing up my output and as soon as I uninstalled this it worked correctly.

    Hi,

    I have contacted Ableton support about this too, but it's a glorious threeway I believe: Windows, Behringer drivers and Ableton.

    Here's my problem:

    I have a setup with a UMC1820+adat expander. I also have a Yocto 808 drum machine, from which I route a couple of individual instruments into a rack, using Ableton External Instrument.

    Windows, upon boot and completely unpredicatbly sometimes adds a number to UMC1820 midi inputs. It is listed as either 'UMC1820 Midi Out', but sometimes '1 - UMC1820 Midi Out' and I have seen it go as high as 3.

    It makes older tracks that reference External Instrument midi channels with a different (or no) number not send out midi until I manually fix them. I have now made presets for no, 1, 2, 3 et cetera, but it's pain in the ass. Other external instruments wired with Extternal Instrument all suffer the same fate.

    I understand it is partly Windows being weird and more importantly the sound card drivers. I have a Korg machine that sometimes gets a number added, but the driver makes sure it doesn't show in Ableton. I would love to have Ableton be agnostic to those digit changes, but I would rather that the UMC1820 stops randomly switching numbers.


    There is ZERO logic to the changes. I could work for weeks with no issue and (like this week) it's like a lottery.

    So, I've told Ableton about my predicament, now I'm doing it here. Hopefully someone at Behringer has some insight.

    What can be the reason that suddenly all outputs (Main, Aux1-6) have a very low signal output? I did not change anything but when connecting speakers and monitors suddenly the output signals got very weak and you can hardly hear any sound. Note that I have 4 active speakers and 2 passive monitors connected and all of them work great. The meters all show normal activity - just the signal sent to the boxes is not reflecting this. Is my XR18 defect or can there be any other reason for this? I updated the driver and firmware as well as initialized the mixer but without success ....

      • Outputs of XR18 suddenly all have low signal
        KevinMaxwell Can you save that scene and put it in a drop box somewhere and put a link to that here so we can take a look at what might be happening?

        What is the source of the signal on channels 5&6? I don’t see and signal at all on any of the analog inputs? Is the keyboard (5&6) coming USB 1&2. Your scene will tell us a lot.
        • Oct 18
      • Outputs of XR18 suddenly all have low signal
        Gary Higgins Hi Daniel, if you can save and then send a link to your scene via dropbox (or similar) others can load it up and see if the outcome is the same. We can check most aspects more easily that way without asking 100 questions of you. If it's a hardware issue, that should show up quickly by lack of the same issue elsewhere. We used to be able to attach scene files here directly but not yet in this new forum....
        • Oct 18
    • Daniel Scholz
      Daniel Scholz Yes the signal source of 5/6 is from USB ... I assigned these channels to USB 1/2 ... and this was all that was attached for this screenshot. I am living in a different timezone (Philippines) and I guess my days are your nights :-) ... the scn file can be downloaded at https://www.dropbox.com/s/j2bygx7hzzdjumt/xr18_DS.scn?dl=0 .... many thanks for your help. Just for completeness of information - there was a brownout here between the time it was working and not working. I have surge protection and automatic voltage regulation installed but maybe this had an impact - there are almost daily brownouts here and up to now the protection worked ...
      • Oct 18
      • Outputs of XR18 suddenly all have low signal
        KevinMaxwell The scene in your dropbox doesn’t have USB selected as the input source. It has USB 5 going to channel 1 and USB 6 going to channel 2 but I am pretty sure you also need to have the SOURCE on each of those channels selected as USB and NOT A/D as it is now.
        • Oct 18
    • Daniel Scholz
      Daniel Scholz Oops ... you are right ... I might have clicked around too much out of desperation ... sorry for that ... selecting USB as input source does not change the behaviour. USB Input 1/2 are routed to Channel 5/6 ...
      • Oct 19
      • Outputs of XR18 suddenly all have low signal
        KevinMaxwell I agree 100 percent with what Gary says. and when doing this just do it with something other then the USB as the playback. And then that will tell you if there is some strange set up going on.
        • Oct 19
    • Daniel Scholz
      Gary Higgins I would suggest making sure your scene(s) is saved and initialize your mixer again. Try a different previously working scene or maybe just start from scratch. Something VERY basic to see if the low levels still occur. There are enough odd things in this one scene to be suspect. Those 'odd' things may however be just perfect for you (This is not a criticism or value judgement) however one little thing could be the cause of the issue. Outputs to speakers would tend to indicate usb playback is in use yet only 2 ch's are set to usb and those 2 have their sources/ch's swapped-1/2 is usb 5/6 and 5/6 is usb 1/2. I think that means in this scene your DAW ch's 1 and 2 would be the only ch's heard and on ch 5 and 6. If the daw outputs were low, it might explain it. If the same low output occurs with a very basic setup, I would maybe send it off for repair.
