    Safes are seem to be sticky to a console. Even when i change from deferent account and load deferent show file “safe” preserves settings from previous account. Not sure if that is by design, makes no sense to me though.

    I would expect “safes” to prevent changes only after all default settings where loaded from specific show file. Or, at very least to have preference setting to expend or contract extend of “safe” functionality.

     

    Thank you,

    Hi.
    I’m looking to upgrade out broadcast truck’s audio capabilities, and am considering going with the Midas HD-96, however I have a few questions regarding using AES50 stageboxes over fibre.

    The documentation states that to use a Klark Teknik DN9680 to send AES over fibre, we need to “upgrade” to the multimode fibre module.
    Is this really the case?

    We would only need three DL153 stageboxes maximum for our rigs (two would be enough, but a third would allow future expansion).
    The three stageboxes are run to separate locations, and so we don’t need multiplexing.
    I was hoping we could take 3 of the AES50 ports, and use DN9680s to run single mode fibre directly from the truck to the stageboxes.

    We currently use Dante stageboxes run over SMPTE311 hybrid fibre cables, due to their incredible ruggedness, weatherproofness, their ability to be daisychained, and being a TV company we have plentiful stock of them.
    Our runs are typically between 100 and 200m, occasionally up to 400m.

    However, these are single-mode fibre, and would not work with the “upgraded” multimode module in the KT9680

    Could anyone give me the lowdown on AES-over-fibre? Do we really have to use multimode?

    Thanks in advance.

      GaryHiggins You might be better served with a Wing fitted with an internal Dante card and keep your Dante stageboxes and single mode fiber...get a few and still save multiple thousands of dollars. The Wing is a GREAT mixer! (and you can still buy and use DL153's via aes50)

    I've got Mida Pro 1 , Pro2, M32, and now M32R, I , made all my cat cable following the Midas specification with Belden cavle UTP, but now I see on the back of my new M32R that I MUST ise STP...

    Why?

    Can I use my Belden Cat5E UTP?

    Thanks

      Paul_Vannatto The answer to your second question is no. The answer to your first question (why?) is that Brian Wynn proved to us (back in 2013) that ESD (electrostatic discharge) will cause dropouts to the AES50 digital signals. It is imperitive to use STP (cat5e, cat6, cat7) with ethercons on each ends and that there is continuity between the ethercon shells.

      Here is the link to his various videos

      GaryHiggins I will add that Cat8 works fine as well. I have been using it for well over a year (closer to 2 years) with zero issues. I have personally tested over 300 feet (3 100+ foot rolls interconnected) which worked perfectly as well. All Cat7/8 is shielded btw, doesn't come any other way. Of note the new warning stickers that come on the backs of newer Music Tribe devices now all say 'use STP only' but conspicuously omit the Cat version number-finally, small victories imo. That said the Cat5e wars continue to rage on. II should add that the standard Cat8 rj45's will not fit in an Ethercon without trimming. I usually replace them.

    Hi guys,

    I recently purchased a HERITAGE-D HD96-24-CC-IP mixing console and am about to make a flip flight case for it. However, a local manufacturer asks me for a 3D CAD model of the console. Sending him the console itself so that he takes measurements directly from the device is problematic for me. Does anyone have this file?

    I have formatted my USB stick to fat32 and am looking to capture a basic stereo board recording from my Midas M32r.

    Every time I plug the stick into the board it ends up with a total glitched-out error message that freezes the entire board and requires a restart. This crash happens every time I begin creating a new folder or start configuring the save file on the board. The other experiences I have had are the board not recognizing the stick unless I start the board with it already in and the recording function not staying engaged.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. 

    Thank you!

      KevinMaxwell Is the USB stick a USB3? I understand that these consoles don't like USB3 sticks. Can you give details of exactly what USB stick you have and how is it formatted. Have you cleaned off any data on the USB stick and formatted it so you are starting with a fresh device? Is The stick new or old.?

    I know theres no display on the front panel to access this function if it even exists. But is it possible to connect via usb to configure the phantom internal clock ?

    Hello! I hope my question is easily answered.

    I am using the Midas M32C along with the DL32 stage box. This rig functions as the “brain” of our live shows supplying our IEM system as well as giving a feed to FOH.

    I have the Dante card installed in the M32C.

    My issue is that the levels coming of of the Dante card to my DAW are extremely low and do not reflect the gain structure that we have established in M32C as show in M32 Edit. For example, I can see in the Midas software that I am getting a full signal anywhere from -6 to 0db, but when I look at what Dante is sending to my DAW, those numbers are averaging -30 to -20db. 

    For my connections, I am going out of the primary port on the Dante card right into my laptop.

    Can we assign what feeds the Dante card? Is there a layer of gain structure that I am missing here? Shouldn’t the Dante output reflect what the M32C is showing?

    Thank you so much in advance for any help on this frustrating matter. It’s much appreciated!

      GaryHiggins If you are using local out for card ch’s it may be the issue. Maybe try using something like the p16 menu so that you can get a tap point beyond the input itself. Each p16 ch can be a direct out of each specific ch and you can set the tap to be say post eq or even post fader.

    Hello!

     

    Not sure if this is the place to report a bug (or find out if I am missing something), but it looks like there is something wrong with DCA assignments as far as Matrices go. I have been setting Matrices 1&2 (Linked), and 3 to DCA 8. Works great. The issue is, when you switch scenes to another scene that does not have these Matrices assigned to the DCA 8, the assignment persists until you disable it manually. No parameter/scene safes are involved, and this happens both on the Edit app and the M32 board itself.
