    Trying to control my x32 from my mac mini, need help with software as the newest app can't be verified by apple.  Is there a legacy version download available?

    Thanks in advance, Luke

    Hey there.

     

    Just set up my BC1200s for the first time but I get heavily distorted audio.  I am not an audio engineer so I assume this is no fault of the mics at this point.  I am just needing some help.

     

    Setup:

    Mics > UMC404HD Interface > 27" iMac > Reaper

     

    additionally, I have a Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 Interface.  I set these two interfaces up as an aggregate device on my mac.  The distortion from the mics happens regardless of the setup... Either the aggregate or just the UMC or Just the Focusrite.  I have all of the Pad buttons pushed in I am not getting any clipping indicators on either the DAW or the Interface.   I attached a brief recording to show what I mean.   Any input would be wonderful!

    My "Dad Band" is anxiously awaiting delivery of our new Behringer PMP 500 mixer.  This is primarily for live performance, but is there a method or best practice for recording performances/rehearsals directly from this equipment?  If not, is there some add-on equipment that would make this possible?

    I'm very much a neophyte.

    Is this possible wing new firmware that can use USB, dante, or other expansion card as a channel insert and not just only limit at premium/standard FX external fx.

    Hopefully this can be added to the new firmware.


    Thanks.

      Paul_Vannatto This feature is currently available (and has been in the firmware for quite some time). In the Standard FX list, at the very top is the External plugin. Assign that to one of the channel (or bus) inserts. On the External FX screen, assign the return to one of the channel strips. To assign the sends, do that on the Routing, output, FX Sends screen.

      • Wing channel insert feature request
        WING_Fred Hi, we juste need a direct output/return to any signals (USB/Dante/etc..) per chanel and let fx slot free for any inside plugins... (sorry for my english, I'm french!)
        • Sep 22
    • xavierng1998
      Paul_Vannatto You can already assign any signal to outputs and returns. But the channel strip inserts are linked to the FX engines and therefore must use the External plugin in order to make those assignments to the inserts. That is the way the Wing is designed. As far as I know, that design cannot be changed.

    I've got the UMC204HD.

    I have a good mic going into input1 and it works fine with live monitoring with my headphones.

    BUT, if I place my phone/mp3 player/iPad into input 2 via the 3/4" jack, the audio coming from there sounds massively watery/wobbly/cuts out/mid range is missing/voice frequencies are totally lost, YET the mic works as it should.

    If I unplug the mic, it sounds fine. but when the mic goes back in, the sound from the mp3/ipad player goes bad again after a second. Almost like something flicks a switch

    Any suggestions? or should the DAW not be used this way?

    Essentially I want to play music via an external source(iPad), hear it over my headphones, and also record myself playing the sax, via the mic with live monitoring.

    Any ideas or help with this?

    Cheers

      PedroRodrigues Hi kuztardd, that effectively will not work as the INPUTS on the UMC204HD are exclusively for Mono uncompressed signals. The MP3 is an effectively a stereo compressed file.
      I would suggest just use your UMC204HD and your DAW and to set an extra track on your DAW where you will have the audio file present on your phone/mp3 player/iPad playing.
      This would allow you to control all your creative process on your DAW.
      You will not be able to play music via an external source (iPad) but you will have the same files being played on your DAW and all your reaming required will be possible such as hear it over your headphones, and record yourself playing the sax, via the mic with live monitoring.
      It is important to take under account that the configuration will depend on the features available on your DAW, but if you are using a DAW LIKE Reaper that will be possible.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you

    I have a Behringer PMP4000 powered mixer which has 1-8 XLR mono mic inputs and 9/10, 11/12, 13/14 and 15/16 stereo inputs each with separate 1/4" L and R inputs. Can I use a either a 1/4" balanced or a 1/4" unbalanced jack adapters to input a microphone into the left channel of each and get the mono signal out of all speakers on the system. I would like to use 12 low impedance XLR microphones (SM57 or SM58 plus adapters) on my mixer. Am I correct in thinking it is possible?

      WilliamR It is possible to use them, and it won't harm your mic; there is not enough gain to amplify the microphone level to a line input. If the device the microphone is connected to is only line level, you will need to connect your mic to a preamp and then connect the preamp to the line input.

    • JosephHillebrqn
      JosephHillebrqn WilliamR - That makes perfect sense. I will look into getting preamps for the mics. Thank you.

    I have an X-32 Rack with an X-Touch. Our users want to be able to have the channel mapping change depending on the show.

    I thought saving scenes would accomplish this, but when I Load the scenes the channel order stays the same, but other attributes, like the colors on the scribble strips, change.

    Is there a way to save and recall scenes or shows or something where the channel order can change as well?

      Paul_Vannatto The channel order is saved in scenes and are recalled accordingly, unless you have some channel safes enabled.

      • Is There a Way to Recall Channel Order?
        WWSBengineering I thought I replied to this. I don't believe I have any channel safes enabled. I'm using X32 Edit to make my changes since the interface on the X32 Rack is not very user friendly.

      Paul_Vannatto (rant) I really wish they would fix this forum interface so that when we use the notification link to go to the thread and post there, it shows up in the regular view. If you post from the notification link, it posts in a parallel universe- very frustrating. (rant done)

      You mentioned in your (parallel universe) post that when saving the "scene all the boxes checked (HA Config, Scribble Strip, Gate, Compressor, EQ, Sends, Main/Fader), which I figure is what is being saved". Those are SAFES, not SAVES. When you save a scene, (almost) all settings are saved. Those safes restrict what is loaded. Therefore, uncheck all safes and the channel order will be loaded.

    If I'm using all 16 inputs can I then use the rest of the inputs to bring back audio via USB using traction?

    I use the X32 rack as an interface for protools. During playback all i get is the snap crackle and pop, making my recordings unusable.

    All is good in protools using my focusrite interface. I wonder if it is safe to say the xusb expansion card has failed, or a larger problem with the mixer its self. any help would be appreciated

      Paul_Vannatto Is the sample rate (44K, 48K) the same with the X32 Rack and ProTools? If not, it will give the snap, crackle and pop.
      • Sep 15
    • drichardson
      drichardson Yes...this was the first thing i checked.. The previous night everything worked spot on, Nothing was changed and the next night it was no good. I hooked up my focusrite interface and there was no problem. I almost think it is the expansion card that's the problem

    • drichardson
      Dale_M Best to try with another DAW or a friends machine to see if the problem follows the mixer.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Doug, just got my laptop back from a church that I had accidentally left it. Yes your scene was attached. What's up?

    • DougDeMarche
      DougDeMarche It’s kind of a template for a show this coming weekend. It’s just a starting point but I’m wondering if you have any thoughts on things I could template better. I am playing and running from stage so I think I am going to run the monitors pre-fader. Seems like the I/O page shows one thing and sends shows something different. Thanks as always Paul

    • DougDeMarche
      Paul_Vannatto Hey Doug, looking at the I/O in the Routing screens and there are definite issues.

      On the Input screen, it shows that the first 3 banks of inputs are from the AES50 A. Evidently you are using one or more stageboxes. But on the AES50 screen (outputs to the stageboxes), the 3rd and 4th banks have AES50 A17-24 and A25-32 (inputs) assigned, meaning that these AES50 inputs are being sent back out the stagebox outputs - which doesn't make sense.

      Also AES50 A 5th and 6th banks have the Out 1-8 assigned to both. If you are using the Ultranet outputs of the stageboxes, they will get their signals from these banks.

      Finally, if you are using the AES50 B port, the first 2 output banks are assigned AES50 A1-8 and A9-16.

      On the XLR screen (which assigns signals to the XLR outputs on the back of the X32), the first 2 banks (of 4) have Local 1-4 and 5-8 respectively. Local are the physical XLR inputs on the back of the X32. That means that whatever you have plugged into the first 8 XLR inputs are going directly out the XLR outputs - doesn't make sense.

      If you can explain exactly what is hooked up to what and what signals you want to these outputs, I can help fix this for you.
