Then I would suggest you get 6 DP48 and 2 Hub4 (when they are available). Rackmount the 2 Hub4 and 12 wireless transmitters. The DP48 will get all 48 channels (from the AES50) and power from the Hub4 and can send the resulting mixes (of each DP48) back to the 2 Hub4, which can output (from their back outputs) to the respective wireless IEM transmitters.
While waiting for the release of the Hub4, you can place the wireless IEM transmitters beside (or underneath) the DP48 and output from the back of the DP48 to the tranmitters. The better solution of course is with the Hub4.
I was looking at the midi section of the XR18 manual and didn't see a midi setting to control the gain of an input. Is that not something you can do with midi controls?
That is correct that you can't control the gain using midi CC or PC. But you could send the gain value using OSC via Sysex (see bottom of table). To generate these sysex strings, I have developed an app called SysexOscGen.
My bad! I've just re-read your previous post - so the XLR's provide a higher output (+4db?) As opposed to the aux (-10db?)
The XLR outputs do provide a higher output with respect to the Aux (1/4"). But if I remember correctly the difference is only about 6db. Also both XLR and Aux on the back of the X32 are balanced and line level, the latter being TRS (tip, ring, sleeve). The P2 uses a stereo 1/4" jack, thus unbalanced (left, right, sleeve). I don't have any P2, but do have 6 P1. One of the bands that do use them is a 6 piece bluegrass group that were very happy using them (with earbuds). Recently I switched them to the DP48 when I was beta testing them and they really liked them as well.
Regarding your questions from your previous post, yes it is possible to use the 6 Aux outs for 3 stereo IEM on each console or use a combination of XLR and Aux Outs for the required IEM's - just takes a bit of creative routing.
Hi Greg @GregWarren ,
It is a bit unclear what you need. Do you have 7 vocals plus 5 band members? Do they all need wireless IEM or just some of the vocals? It makes a difference what I would recommend.
This seems to be an issue only with X32-Edit importing .SCN into the local scene storage.
I just tried it here and it works fine. Attach your scene file to your next post and I'll have a look at it.
Both racks will be on stage - split apart for inputs but joined with a cat 6 cable.
That will make cabling more straightforward.
I'm planning to use behringer P2's for cabled monitoring so the aux levels should be ok.
The P2's are OK (I prefer the P1 myself). Please understand that the P1 input is a stereo 1/4" input. But the Aux Outs of the X32 are mono 1/4" TRS, which will require some special cable/adapter to make it work.
Do I need to configure any routing on the slave x32 or can it all be configured from the master x32 via the aes50 port?
Yes both consoles will need to be setup. We can help you with that. What I would suggest is that you save your FOH scene, then export it to a file - either using the front panel and the Utility button, or via X32-Edit app (Windows, Mac, linux or Raspberry Pi - not ipad) and attach it to your next post (Choose file below). That way we can have a look at your basic setup and plan everything accordingly.
