    Dear all,

    We're very pleased to announce that a new firmware update (v1.7) for the DL32 Stage Box is now available as a free download on the Midas website.

    http://bit.ly/DL32_firmware_v1_7

    The firmware update 1.7 for DL32 adds performance improvements and new features to the I/O box operating system. This new version improves AES3 (AES/EBU) status bits, adds MIDI remote control of head amps and prevents clicks when using the Mute All Outputs function with very high subsequent gain.

    The firmware update can easily be done via USB using a Windows PC/laptop computer. Please follow the update instructions at the end of this document.

    This new DL32 Firmware version contains:

    New Features
    • Hold the MUTE button during power-on to disable the fan
    • Version 1.3 with increased fan voltage to support new fan model
    • Version 1.5 includes aes/ebu validity and status bits changed (fixing no-sound issue with Lab.gruppen iPD series)
    • Version 1.6 adds MIDI preamp remote control (as in DL16)
    • Version 1.7 Mute all function changed to digital mute, only

    MIDI Remote Control
    • Note: The DL32 will only accept MIDI controls when its preamps are not controlled from
    a console (i.e. M32 series) already
    • When DL32 is connected to any AES50 clock master that does not control its preamps, (e.g. Lynx AES16e-50), then its rear panel MIDI input allows controlling head amp gain and phantom power
    • Rx/Tx on MIDI CH01 CC80...95, 0-19 > Input 1-16, Gain, 2.5 dB steps, -2.5 dB...45 dB
    • Rx/Tx on MIDI CH01 CC96...111, 0/127 > Input 1-16, Phantom power, on/off
    • Rx/Tx on MIDI CH02 CC80...95, 0-19 > Input 17-32, Gain, 2.5 dB steps, -2.5 dB...45 dB
    • Rx/Tx on MIDI CH02 CC96...111, 0/127 > Input 17-32, Phantom power, on/off

    Requirements:
    Windows (WinXP or higher) PC with USB connector and administrator account required for running the updater executable (DL32update_1-7.exe)

    Update Process:
    1. Download and unpack the updater zip file from midasconsoles.com on your Windows PC
    2. While the DL32 is switched off, connect its USB port to your PC using a standard USB cable (type A -- type B)
    3. Upon powering up, the DL32 will detect the USB connection and wait for the update
    4. Make sure you have started your Windows session with Administrator access, then start the DL32update_1-7.exe
    5. The terminal window will inform you about the update progress. Wait approximately 1 min until it shows completed
    6. Disconnect the USB link and switch the DL32 power off / on

      Hello,

       

      Thanks for you post. I'm making this comment because I'm trying to update the firmware of my DL32 but the DL32 is not recognised by the PC. As soon as I boot the DL32 when connected to the computer the PC shows a message saying "USB device not recognised". I'm connecting the DL32 while is turned off and then I'm turning it on while connected. Because of this I haven't been able to run the updater and therefore my M32C which is up to date is not recognising the DL32. I've tried this with another PC and the same issue occurs. What could be the reason? 

       

      Thanks for your help in advanced.

      Hey Fred,

      No, in the end I wasn't able to update the firmware of my DL. My solution was to sent back the unit and get a new one from Midas.

      Michael_Lapke Hi Kevin,

      Yes there is actually. When you go to the main section at the top of the "Announcements" forum you will notice (below the search bar but just above the top post on the right hand side) there is a clickable link called "Forum Tools". Click there and you will see an option for you to click "Subscribe to this forum..."

      From here you are able to receive daily or weekly email notifications about posts that go up in this section of the forum. This will also work with other sections of the forum as well. Hope this helps!

      We'll definitely be doing more live broadcasts in the future and will be sure to post here. Smiley Wink

    Dear forum members,

    Our forum may experience a brief service interruption this coming weekend as we will be performing a scheduled maintenance.

    Users in our MUS!C Group Community Forum please take note as there will be a downtime during this process.

    The interruption is scheduled to be this Saturday, 9 January, 2016 around 4pm - 6pm Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

    Our Network Team team told us that the actual maintenance would only take 15-20 minutes. But to give ample time for testing before and after they have provided us with a 2 hour downtime window.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

      JohnNourse Have not downloaded it to our iPad yet but for us the most important upgrade would be to let the app still work when show control on the X32 is set to Cue.
      When this is set for older versions the app is DISABLED ! Has this been fixed ? It says that the app now works with version 2 + of the firmware so can it work with show control set to Cue ?

      DanSingletary Hi,

      I just wanted to throw in my ask for cue support on the M32 Mix app for some future release. Ideally, this would be implemented in such a way that you would be able to access the "GO" button, and the next/last buttons at all times in the app -- or, at a minimum, in the DCA page. I mix for musical theatre and during a show I'm on the DCAs nearly 100% of the time, and use cues to change my DCA layouts as I move through the show. Currently in order to do this remotely with M32-Mix, I also have to have the M32-Edit laptop application running for cue control.

    Dear all,

    Our latest control app, M32-EDIT Version 2.5 is now available for download.

    The Midas M32-EDIT 2.5 is the latest editing software update created specifically for Midas’ M32 console series. This update provides powerful remote control for all functions, as well as off-line editing and show preparation. M32-EDIT communicates via UDP/OSC protocol through the M32 Ethernet port, and facilitates the remote control or setting of virtually all functions of the M32 console. Real-time level meters are displayed for all audio channels, along with user-defined icons and names. The top left section mimics the console’s main display, while the lower part represents the channel fader sections. All elements closely emulate the M32 operation, and hence allow for operational training sessions – even when the console is unavailable for hands-on experience.

    It is possible to edit multiple consoles on the same network concurrently via several instances of M32-EDIT, by selecting their individual IP addresses. It is also possible to run several instances of M32-EDIT and M32-MIX (for iPad) concurrently on several devices, with all controlling the same M32 console. The M32-EDIT communication is optimised for the support of up to four wired network clients per M32 console. We recommend using the M32-MIX application for iOS6 wireless control via your Apple iPad.

    What’s new in M32-EDIT Version 2.5 (Update from M32-EDIT 2.4)

    V 2.5 features improved graphics routines for better performance on the recent Apple Mac OSX 10.11 operating system. It also fixes some small glitches, including the issue when remote controlling the application via MCU and selecting EQ on a DCA. The GUI scaling control on Setup/global now also supports scaling down to 800 pixels width, specifically for tiny displays such as the new RPi2-display.

    New Features:

    • Extended GUI scaling range from 800-1800 pixels window width
    • New switch for scaling the X32 EDIT window to standard size Enhancements
    • Improved graphics routines for better performance on Mac OSX 10.11
    • Several bug fixes, including:
    > MCU remote control issue with DCA-EQ
    > EQ band reset switch will no longer toggle gain off/on when LoCut or HiCut filter modes are selected

      Hi. Can I ask you for a version of Edit 2.5 for PC please ... I recently bought the M32C - and found that on the new version 4.1 there is NO way to set / manage Exact Rhythm parameters and other exact settings / values on FX..A in the old version 2.5 - all this is visible and is under every FX ... How did we stay that such IMPORTANT elements were simply removed ... And it’s impossible to regulate exactly ... Please help us please ... Give us version 2.5 please .. .Or tell me how you control the exact parameters of all FX? because TAP is really rude for the rhythm in studio work. Thank you for your help.

      I stumbled on to this post when trying to understand more about what you are trying to do because of the Private Message (PM) that you sent me asking about the XTC.

       

      I suggest that you post your questions on this area (see attached link) of the forum. It seems to get more traffic than the places you have posted some of your questions. As you might be able to tell from the lack of responses.

      https://community.musictribe.com/t5/Mixing-Consoles/bd-p/mipc1004?pageNum=2&tab=recent

       

      I would also suggest that you copy and paste the question you asked me in the PM to a new thread in that part of the forum. I will try to answer you there when you do that. I am not sure if the XTC and the M32C was the right choice for what you are trying to do. The XTC has a lot of MIDI capability, I have never used it in the way you are trying to use it. All of the X32/M32 products have very limited Midi capability. But we can talk about that when you post the question in public. This is because other people can join in and try and help you.  

       

      Regarding the question in this post. If I understand what you are asking for, all of the Parameters of the Effects units can be controlled in M32 edit V4.1. But in V4.1 I can’t find a way to type in a parameter. I am using a Windows PC if you are using a Mac I can’t be of much help as to how the controls on that work. On a PC if you are using a mouse with a scroll wheel the parameters seem to be rough settings. If you hold down the left button when on a parameter and move the cursor you seem to be able to get a little bit finer resolution. M32 edit version 2.5 is basically the same but you do get the ability to also type in a parameter. Have you checked out any of the tablet apps for this, they may have that ability. The problem with using V2.5 is there are some things that the newer firmware can do that you can’t do on V2.5 and at the moment other than routing I can’t think of what it can’t do.

       

      If you haven’t gotten the M32edit V2.5 or whatever version in the V2 range for the PC that you want, just send me your email address in a PM and just let me know which one you want  and I will send it to you if I have it. V2.5 seems to be the most up to date of the old format.

       

      Where are you from? I am trying to figure the time difference. I am in the USA on the east coast, I am very close to New York City. And I am trying to figure out what is your native language.

    Hi,

    I noticed the firmware 3.2.3 is out for Pro Series, but I can not find the release notes for it. I don't like doing an upgrade without knowing what is going to change...
    Also the user manuals for the PRO consoles are not available from the download section. You have to search third party websites to find one.
    Is there a way to subscribe to RSS feeds to get noticed when a new FW is released ?

      Hi Carlo,

      I recently upgraded to 3.2.3 and had an issue with my pop groups not responding on occasion. In one instance, the console froze up and I had to restart--luckily this was before doors opened. I've been able to create pop groups, but when I hit the button to access the group, it's sometimes slow to respond or does not function. Other times it works out just fine. I'm not sure if anyone else has had an issue with pop groups with the new update, but figure I'd share.

      On the plus side., the RTA is convenient, and the user group is a nice feature that allows you to re-order your channels in a specific group.

      Hi Dave,

      Welcome to the forums. When you upgraded to G3.2.3 did you power cycle the desk a few times? Have you contacted our Midas CARE team?
