    Is there a way to pad a input channel on the m32 ?

    • charlesstrick
      Paul_Vannatto Which inputs are you using, the XLR or Aux In and what source do you have that requires additional padding? The preamps in the XLR jacks have a -12 to +60 db gain range and the Aux In inputs have a -18 to 18 db digital trim which should suffice for most input signals. If you have something like a speaker signal, you could use a DI (such as the Behringer DI100) with its two 20db pads.

        charlesstrick inputs are on my dl16 xlr my problem is always a keys player that keeps turning up his gain on his keyboard to boost his combo amp to the point of clipping my preamp with gain all the way down. I try to explain what he is doing to the input, that helps for about one song. won't use a floor wedge never have that problem with female key players

      Paul_Vannatto The Behringer DI100 has two 20db pads, which in theory can drop speaker output level to mic level. If the keyboard output is stereo, get 2 of them. The other solution is to tell the band to get a replacement keyboardist (yup, I've done that).

      charlesstrick thanks Paul , Next time i will suggest the hot looking female replacement option,

        Paul_Vannatto Maybe that's the problem - she's too hot - output signal and otherwise...

    I want to take a fader out of the main bus ( mono center and main stereo) without having to express a fader level. Is this possible? 
    currently the following works but only while expressing a fader level:

    /ch/17/mix ON  -4.3 ON +0 ON -3.0

    the -4.3 is the fader level, it works when the fader level is in the string, it does not Mt work without the fader level expressed.

    I want to have snippets that will take certain faders out of the main stereo bus. And other snippets that put them back in the main stereo bus, but not having to 'declare' a fader level.

    I appreciate any feedback.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Troy, standard snippets and scenes generated by the console or Edit uses the multi-value OSC command lines. These can be replaced by their single-value commands, which are fully documented by Patrick in his X32 OSC Protocol document.

      For that particular line, it can be replaced by the following OSC single-value commands (see page 26)
      /ch/17/mix/on ON
      /ch/17/mix/fader -4.3
      /ch/17/mix/st ON
      /ch/17/mix/pan +0
      /ch/17/mix/mono ON
      /ch/17/mix/mlevel -3.0

      For your particular snippet, simply use the /ch/17/mix/st (for the main stereo) and the /ch/17/mix/mono (for the mono center) commands

      I meant page 26 in Patrick's document. The link is in the second full paragraph on his website. Here is the link to the actual document:

    Hi,

    The other day while doing other work behind my Midas, I unfortunately bumped a speaker and it fell and broke off the Master and Mono Master Faders. In the attached pic, you can see what I'm left with. It was a pretty clean break, but there is nothing in the faders now to control them, although they still work and pass audio. I have 2 questions...

    -Do I really need to take apart the entire console to re attach the faders?

    -The metal port that the fader attaches to might be bent, what parts might I need to re attach them?

     

    Thanks so much for any help at all.

      Nigel67 Hi CPMixing. I think that you will do very well if you can attach the shafts back on the faders. You will more than likely have to replace them. The faders are soldered on to the pcb, so yes, you will have to take out the fader pcb to desolder and replace the faders, or you can purchase a replacement fader pcb. If you know how to solder, then its a more time consuming job than being difficult. To access the pcbs, you need to take the bottom panel off the console. For availability of faders or fader pcb, please contact our spares team. This can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Spare Parts tab and submit a ticket. A colleague will then get back to you with part numbers, availability and pricing.

    Hallo, -I `ve got the same problem with my  new DL32  as Andreas G03 - this time Beheringer Wing does`nt recognize Dl 32 after I tried to update the firmware to v. 1.8 / no sync between DL32 and Wing //. Does anybody have solution for this issue, or do I have to send it back to the seller and get the new one. Thanks for Your suggestions. Miroslav Sur /  Slovakia /

      KevinMaxwell Have you tried reloading the DL32 V1.8 firmware? A corrupted download can sometimes be a problem. Or even loading the previous DL32 firmware version V1.7. I remember there was a time (maybe on the X32) that it was recommended that you change the sample rate (clock rate) on the console to the other setting and then back again while hooked up to the stage box and it then might work. When you updated the firmware did your computer tell you that the update was successful? Did the DL32 work with the WING before you updated it?

      I don't see a post be anyone else (Andreas) about this problem. can you post a link to that message?

      KevinMaxwell Miroslavur sent me the following in Messages but He may have intended to post the following here.

      >>>>>>>; I tried to downgrade firmware back to v.1.7 from v 1.8 several times - it did not work. One of my colleges told me to do update on PC with WIN XP- I`ve done that too. From the very beginning DL 32 did`nt show any sync on. When I switch DL32 on , just MUTE ALL red led control is on, but never AES50 SYNC.- no red, nor green. I`m using 50m pro snake CAT 6E cable from Thomann brand new. I even tried to change the clock rate from 48k to 44.1 and back , it did not help -Sync source to AES50A - and back to internal- nothing. Strange .
      <<<<<<<<

      Are you saying that this DL3 used to work with this WING and it stopped working after you updated the Firmware in the DL32? What version of firmware is loaded in the WING?

      Did you download the DL32 firmware again from the Midas website? Or have you been trying to reload the same version that you originally downloaded?

      Hi Kevin, I have to say, that first thing after I`ve unpacked DL32 was updating the firmware and just after that I connected DL32 to Wing for the first time .I realy don`t know what firmware version was installed in DL32 previously. But one thing is clear- updating procedure did not run correctly- in the end of updating procedure from PC I`ve got a message that unit in USB port was not recognized. By the way, I have downloaded the firmware now from site midasconsoles.com and tried to update the FW again- with the same result. I`d like to thank You kevin again for Your help- / the worst thing is that this item is`nt available for the time beeing- Thomann says 11-14 weeks / Regards Miroslav Sur

      • behriger Wing does`nt recognize Midas DL32 after update to v. 1.8
        KevinMaxwell I wonder if there is a secret multi-button reset mode on power up that will clear out the firmware and let you start again. The message that the USB port was not recognized is a clue. Are you using USB2 or USB3 ports on the computer? Did you plug in the DL32 to the computer with the DL32 off and then turn it on and WAIT? The computer should comeback to you and tell you if there is a port problem but it might take a few minutes. Do you know how to use device manager on the PC and have a look at the port and see if there is a problem?.

      miroslavsur Hallo Kevin, I don`t know about any multi-button reset mode on power up that will clear out previous FW version. Would be nice ,if there was that posibility. I am using / and today again / USB 2 port and I have been waiting a while - 3min / until I started FW exe with no results. I checked USB ports in device manager too -all ok. Thank You again Kevin.

        KevinMaxwell I see that the instructions say “Make sure you have started your Windows session with Administrator access” This has caught me on a few occasions with other programs because I am the only one that uses my computer and I thought I was always running as the administrator. But it turns out certain programs require an additional step to run a program as the admin. Don’t just click on the program but right click and you will see one of the selections that pops up is Run as Administrator. Click on that one and see if you have any luck.

        Also isn’t there any Midas / Music Tribe support people on here to suggest what can be done?

      Paul_Vannatto Search for Mixing Station and get the X-Air version. The Pro version is well worth the small cost IMO.

    On WING + DL32, how many DP48s can be daisy chained without issue? I could use the second AES port  off the WING or the through connection from the DL32 stagebox.

    Thanks

      Paul_Vannatto I think the answer is the same as to how many P16 can be daisy chained - we're not sure.

    • ecfsanjose
      DavidKnighton Hello ecfsanjose,
      I'm not sure if there is an exact number, but I know at some point there was a class full of X32/M32 that were all daisy chained, between 30-40 mixer without issue. That being said, you should probably make use of a HUB4, because 1 bad cable link can disrupt the whole AES50 stream. A HUB4 will distribute up to 4 separate streams for better management.

    I am thinking about purchasing an M32c and I would love to put it in an skb shallow rack case, but I am having trouble figuring out if it will fit, has anyone done this before that can shed light? Pictures would be amazing, here is the rack case I am talking about. . .

      DwayneAasberg Ambi,

      We have an M32C but it is not handy to measure. We have it installed in a standard 19" rack. However the MG user documentation specs show the M32C as 11.8" deep, so I think the case you propose will be too shallow. If the documentation is accurate (likely) you will need a case deeper than 12" plus connectors (4").

      I will be able to snap pix of our install tomorrow.

      DavidKnighton Hello ambi731,
      As Dwayne suggests, you'll want to consider whether you'll have cables hanging out the rear of the rack or permanently installed. If you want to keep the cables permanently in the rack, then you'll want to consider a deeper rack to accommodate the bulky connectors, especially if you plan on transporting the rack from gig to gig.

    Hello There,
    I would like to know how to rearrange the dynamics on the M32 Digital mixers so that EQ comes before compression or compression comes before EQ. The Wing board gives me that option and wondering how this can be achieved on the M32 and X32 digital boards

    THanks,

    Rich
