Routing for S16

I am helping a friend with his set up. What he has is 2 X32 Racks and an S16. He is using one X32 Rack as the FOH Mixer and the 2nd X32 Rack as the Monitor Mixer with the S16 as Channels 17-32. He wants the 8 output ports on the S16 to send the same Mixes as the X32 Monitor Rack. He is using the Output Ports 7 and 8 on the FOH Rack for Mains Left and Right . (Both X32 Racks are racked together). Is this possible being as the S16 is set to Inputs 17-32? The setup is S16 to X32 Monitor Rack AES50A to AES50A then X32 Monitor Rack to X32 FOH Rack AWS50B to AES50A. If anyone knows how to route this it would be greatly appreciated! Short version is he would like Mix 1-8 to come out of both the X32 Monitor Rack and the S16 (with the S16 as Ch. 17-32 inputs. Thanks!

Re: Routing for S16

Hi Jim
If those 2 X32 Rack is Racked together, You don't need the S16, cause you have all inputs possible, but if any reason want to use the S16, You can set this way:

X32 Rack FOH AES50A <-> AES50B X32 MONITOR Rack AES50A <-> AES50A S16


On their X32 Rack MONITOR Routing section

Home screen
* Inputs 1-8 -> Local 1-8
* Inputs 9-16 -> Local 9-16
* Inputs 17-24 -> AES50 A1-8
* Inputs 25-32 -> AES50 A9-16

AES50B screen (transfer inputs to X32 FOH)
* Outputs 1-8 -> Local 1-8
* Outputs 9-16 -> Local 9-16
* Outputs 17-24 -> AES50 A1-8
* Outputs 25-32 -> AES50 A9-16

AES50A screen (transfer outputs from X32 MONITOR to S16 )
* Outputs 1-8 -> Out 1-8

On your X32 Rack FOH

Home screen
* Inputs 1-8 -> AES50 A1-8
* Inputs 9-16 -> AES50 A9-16
* Inputs 17-24 -> AES50 A17-24
* Inputs 25-32 -> AES50 A25-32

Out 1-16 screen
- assign the outputs Main L and R to 7 and 8 )

I´m not with my desk now to check in real world this, but I assume that works. Tell us about.

I hope that help you.

Re: Routing for S16

Hi Jim,

It is very evident that you have been around here for some time and know what details we need to provide detailed routing.

What I would suggest is that your friend change the S16 to mode 1 (Out 1-8, ie. no output light). It just makes everything cleaner that way.

Interconnectivity mapping (always map this out before doing any complex routing)
X32 FOH <-> X32 MON <-> S16

On X32 MON
Routing, home
* Inputs 1-8 -> Local 1-8
* Inputs 9-16 -> Local 9-16
* Inputs 17-24 -> AES...

True, but if he do jobs like me he would love to have 16 channels in and 8 out (S16) somewhere else away from the mixers on stage to keep cable management cleaner and easier. Also it is a backup, when one mixer fail he can still do the job with one mixer and 32 pre amps/16 outputs.

Re: Routing for S16

Thanks guys! Where would I be without this Forum??!!!! This is making much more sense now. Of course I WILL have to tell my friend that I came up with this myself. Don't want him to think I'm a dummy !
