X32 Rack and saved presets
The artist I work for prchased an X32 rack and an S16 (since the X32 rack is really an X16) for their IEM's. So, we have toured with this setup for two years now. I have saved show files/scenes religously. Here's an issue I just came across. We are about a month away from a fly date and decided to not fly the rig since the Samsonite gorillas at Delta last year decided to throw our flight case around smashing the X32R. Needless to say they did not accept responsibility.
Okay, I have arranged for the audio vendor to provide a full sized console (X32/M32) I took the file I saved onto my USB stick and went into my shop to verify the file on an M32. Everything loaded up fine EXCEPT for channels 17-32! Even though I saved the show/scene and individual channel presets, the preamps/headamps for 17-32 did not load up. They are all set at zero. What gives? I was dead sure a saved full channel parameter save would load up. Has anyone else run into this dilema? It can't be a dumb, "oh it's the S16 not an X32 set of channels" thing. Or is it?
I need to resolve this soon because the IEM rack is in storage on the East Coast and I am on the West. I don't think management is going to pay to fly me to extract that little bit of info and then fly to our gig in Florida.
