Hello all, I see a lot of familiar faces here, I usually go by "pipelineaudio" in most places.
I am about to receive an M32 and DL32, but in discussions elsewhere there are a lot more people knowledgeable about the X32 family, and as far as I understand, they are similar, but if you would like me to move this to the Midas forum.
My situation is that I have a music school that we also use as a recording studio, and often teach recording as well. I have a large room which will have the DL32 in it, and that will run to the M32 in my control room.
What I would really like, later is to have another M32 or perhaps X32 rack inside the big room, that also has access to that DL32's inputs.
This one would be for teachers and students to use for recording when I'm not around, or other useful things that are better done in that room.
I think I understand that the consoles can send to each other, but I was hoping I could use the two AES50 Ports on the DL32 to send to the two different X32 type devices.
After that, would there be a way for two consoles to share Ultranet, or even just the outputs for making headphone mixes?
Thanks in advance, and I am very excited about moving to this new technology. With all the Dante and everything else, I am very reluctant to buy anymore of the old interface plus ADAT out mic pre paradigm, and am blown away by just how much this stuff can do for so much less money, and best of all, WAY fewer cables!
True, however if they are not used together and/or not powering up the Control room desk is an issue for some reason, it would only be a matter of connecting the 2nd (not yet determined) mixer in the "big" room with the DL A port instead of the B port and changing the clock to internal. Takes a hot 2 minutes. Assuming that is, there would be easy access to the back of the DL and some level of trust that the person(s) doing so knew what they were doing. (Lesson 1 of the recording class?) A consideration of how they get used for sure and maybe discussed and incorporated into a design plan. There's always the piggy back option, however (given 2 rooms as put forward) it's not the way I would go. It has it's own set of considerations and changes with regard to single mixer use. May be the preferred method of others though, and it's nice to have options. It still is a really fine stagebox. I really like mine!
