      GuntherMai I had this pop group user mode reorder issue freezing not only the related pop group when pressing but all other pop groups, the automation and the GUI access buttons from time to time on my pro1.
      Hope this horrible thing is not only fixed for pro2 but also for pro1 Smiley Sad

      GuntherMai Updated the pro1 today but the user pop group reorder issue persists. Have spent much time for seeking a work arround in the last weeks so I'm a bit disappointed.

      After selecting user pop group mode, ordering or reordering channels in that user pop group by either hardware buttons or GUI seems to work. After storing this in a scene, saving show and reloading show file and scene it works as long as i recall 'old' pop groups. When i select a stored user pop group for the first time after reload, the pop group function freezes in total, no more pop groups can be selected, the automation shows no more sceens and the GUI access buttons are frozen too.
      After the corruption changing the show file and even rebooting the console gives the same result. Console with different show file works up to the moment i select a configured user pop group and the freezing issue appears.
      When i load a show file that contains absolutely no scene with user pop groups but solely with 'old' pop groups the issue disappears and after that next loaded show files containing scenes with user pop groups seem to be repaired and work when recalling user pop groups as normaly expected. This works just to the moment i reorder and save user pop groups and the corruption starts again.
      Hope for help for the pro1.

    Dear all,

    The M32 Firmware Update V 2.14 features performance enhancements to the MIDAS M32 operating system. The V 2.14 firmware improves the support for MIDAS DL152...DL155 products. It also improves the linked control over Turbosound iQ series loudspeakers, that are connected via P16 Ultranet, for concurrent remote control of EQ presets and speaker sound modelling. These loudspeaker profiles can be stored in snippets and assigned to user buttons for immediate recall or A/B comparisons. It also fixes an issue with DN32-USB reporting the console sample rate incorrectly after changing the rate on the console without rebooting.

    MIDAS is constantly adding new features and making enhancements to this extremely stable operating system, so that you always experience the best possible performance from your M32. Visit midasconsoles.com and check for updates regularly.

    Note: It is recommended that you backup all data (export Show and Libraries to USB) before updating, as a firmware upgrade may erase data currently stored on your M32. Please be aware that firmware 2.14 requires minimum M32-Edit 2.3 on PC / Mac / Linux computers in wired networks, and with M32-Mix 2.2 on Apple iPads (iOS 6 or 7) for wireless networking.

    Enhancements 2.14:
    - iQ Setup page now accessible with Layer up/down buttons
    - Recall of grouped iQ speakers' settings corrected
    - Inactive insert issue with USB activity during start-up fixed
    - Indication of DL152...DL155 preamps corrected
    - Duplicated messages suppressed when the same MIDI control is assigned to more than one button
    - Sample rate reporting of X-USB and DN32-USB cards, after changing the sample rate without rebooting the console, is improved

    The M32-EDIT 2.4 is the latest editing software update created specifically for the 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.

    V 2.4 now offers new graphics routines with automatic or manual scaling of the editor window to any size between 1000 and 2000 pixels width, for matching your physical display size. It also features the revised Setup structure of recent M32 firmware updates up to 2.14, and the console remote initialization is improved. The firmware DCA-Mute and Hard-Mute options are now also remote controllable from M32-EDIT 2.4. The application surface offers two Talkback buttons for direct accessibility and a new Fine mode for sensitive fader movements.

    For friends of the Raspberry Pi2, we also compiled M32-EDIT V2.4 for this extremely cost-efficient platform. We successfully tested on a RPi2 Model B 1GB running on Rasbian (Debian) Linux, and you can find a corresponding archive on the MIDAS M32 downloads page.

    New Features
    - Automatic or manual scaling of the editor window
    - Revised Setup/Config and Setup/Global structure
    - DCA Mute and Hard Mute options supported
    - RTA peak hold and decay adjustments
    - Talkback buttons available at the fader section
    - New Fine mode for smooth fader movements

    Enhancements
    - Improved remote initialisation
    - Several bug fixes

    System Requirements

    Console firmware V2.14 recommended.

    There are currently four separate archives available for download, for Windows PC, Mac OSX and Linux PC and RPi2 respectively. Up to four computers running the editor can control the same console concurrently. Several instances of the editor can be run on the same machine in order to control several consoles concurrently.

    - Compatible to Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system software
    - Compatible to Mac OSX 10.6.8, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 or 10.10 operating system software
    - Compatible to Linux operating system software, tested with Ubuntu 14.04, 12.04 and Wine
    - Compatible to RaspberryPi, tested on a RPi2 Model B 1GB running on Rasbian (Debian GNU)

      JonBurgstrom Hi,

      You might want to do a "search and replace" for "X32CORE" and replace it with "M32C" in the above M32 firmware announcement. Just saying.

      Hi Jon,

      Actually- a few of the v2.12 updates pertain to the X32CORE specifically, not the M32C.

      Hi Jack,

      Mostly, yes. When new firmware comes out, it pertains to all variants of the M32, however in some cases certain features may be optimized for a specific console - which will be noted in the firmware remarks. Hope this helps!

    Dear all,

    Today is a very exciting day for the MUSIC Group, see our official announcement below:

    MUSIC Group has today announced the acquisition of TC Group, one of the largest group of companies in the professional audio industry. Headquartered in Denmark, and with offices all over the world, TC Group owns and manages some of the most acclaimed brands such as Tannoy, Lab Gruppen, Lake, TC Electronic, TC Helicon and TC Applied Technologies. The deal has been signed and it is expected to close within days.

    The addition of Tannoy, Lab Gruppen and Lake allows MUSIC Group to round out their professional install and touring sound offerings alongside Midas, Klark Teknik and Turbosound, while TC Electronic and TC Helicon represent the industry’s leading brands in the guitar effects and voice processing sector, and perfectly complement MUSIC Group’s Bugera guitar tube amplifier brand and highly successful Behringer prosumer division.

    TC Electronic has also long been established as a leader in broadcast, studio, mastering and production processing, where it gained ultimate authority in loudness control and mastering. For decades now, Tannoy’s HiFi products continue to win “Best in Class” Awards, and as a result the brand has developed a huge following of audio enthusiasts around the world.

    TC Group’s strong focus on product innovation and IP creation is further demonstrated by their TC Applied Technologies company, which is invested in cutting-edge semiconductor designs, networking and interface technology.

    MUSIC Group founder and CEO Uli Behringer commented, “MUSIC Group stands for relentless focus on innovation, business transformation and overall IP creation. Since the acquisition of Midas, Klark Teknik and Turbosound, we have been continuously pursuing brands that complement the mixing console, processing and loudspeaker excellence offered by these historic brands. Throughout our search, TC Group has clearly stood out as the ideal match because of their world-class brands, impressive intellectual property, sterling reputation and first-class team of people. I am very proud to welcome the TC Group team into our family.”

    Tannoy, Lab Gruppen and Lake will now join MUSIC Group’s prestigious Midas, Klark Teknik and Turbosound anchor brands to further strengthen MUSIC Group’s continued expansion into the professional A/V market. Aimed at delivering complete system solutions to Install and Touring customers, the combination of these brands represents an unprecedented range of choice for the most demanding of applications.

    Uli Behringer continued, “We will invest heavily in positioning TC Group’s brands at the very pinnacle of the industry, as we have done with Midas, Klark Teknik and Turbosound, where we have invested over $100 million in highly automated and integrated manufacturing facilities, quality control systems and engineering resources, including a new Center of Engineering Excellence in Manchester, UK.

    TC Group will now equally have full access to MUSIC Group’s extensive resources and advanced automated system platforms in such areas as product development and lifecycle management, engineering, manufacturing, supply chain and finance.”

    TC Group’s CEO Anders Fauerskov responded, “We are very honored that during the acquisition process, some of the largest industry players were bidding for TC Group; however we have selected MUSIC Group as they represent the perfect fit in terms of strategic direction, overall synergies and company culture. Our team is thrilled to join MUSIC Group and open a new chapter for TC Group and its prestigious brands. With the incredibly talented people and massive resources of the MUSIC Group behind us, the team is excited to enter a new era of unprecedented innovation and growth.”

    Real Name Policy

    Dear MIDAS, KLARK TEKNIK and TURBOSOUND Forum User,

    In the interest of a more professional, courteous and respectful atmosphere we are converting our forum user registration names to “Real Names” from artificial user names. Kindly review the policy stated below to better understand why we are making this change and how you can change your user name to your real name.


    MIDAS, KLARK TEKNIK and TURBOSOUND Forums “Real Name Policy”

    Thanks for your interest in the MIDAS, KLARK TEKNIK and TURBOSOUND forums. Before you can post you’ll need to set up an account using your real name in your profile. We use a “Real Name” policy as a means of preventing spam, distasteful or disrespectful posts and other content that is contrary to the stated objectives of these forums. We want this to be a place where MIDAS, KLARK TEKNIK and TURBOSOUND owners, users and prospects can talk about their experiences and share their knowledge with one another.

    What’s In a Name?

    When we say “Real Name” we mean the name that everyone knows you by; not necessarily what’s printed in your passport. Of course your last name (family name) needs to be as printed in your legal ID but your first name might be a shortened version or derivative. Or, it might be a middle name that is how everyone knows you. Either way, the intent is that if your real name is “Jonathan Edward Smith” you could list it as John Smith, Ed Smith, Edward Smith or Johnny Smith if that’s how people know you; you just can’t call yourself “Johnny Appleseed”.

    When registering, make sure to format your username as two capitalized words, such as "Joe Sanborn", as opposed to "joe sanborn", "JoeSanborn" or "jsanborn"

    For those of you with unusual first or last names, or that typically use initials, this will help keep your registration from being deleted. We get dozens of SPAM registrations per day and usernames rendered as one word in all lowercase are virtually impossible to distinguish from the SPAM accounts.

    What If I’m Already Registered with a Pseudonym?


    You will need to edit your profile to update your current name to your real name. Your login name will therefore be your real name and will appear on all posts and responses. You may use up to 30 characters, including spaces so you may include a middle name if space permits.

    Thank you for your continued interest in our forums.

      JoeSanborn Our Guide to Forum Etiquette

      Your Reputation, Image and Behavior

      Too often, the anonymity of the internet is exploited. Internet users behave in ways that they would not behave in face to face situations. As forum users we need to employ greater self-awareness and sensitivity to the tone and presentation of our posts.

      We must not forget that we are talking to real people! We are all participating in a fast-paced environment where we lose the subtle advantages of body language to read intentions. This absence of indicators, which normally helps us to decipher tone and intention, can pose problems. In the absence of these valuable traits (voice tone, facial expressions, body language and other social cues) the judicious use of emoticons and well considered language can help make tone and intention clear and polite to our fellow forum users.

      Good etiquette shows respect for others. The anonymous, distant nature of the internet should not encourage a disregard for the importance of mutual respect and good manners. Being curt with someone, offering clipped responses, using abusive or derogatory language to demean a fellow user or their opinions or showcasing bigotry, vulgarity, racism or profanity should not be considered acceptable behavior. Remember: you may be anonymous but every post you make contributes to your online reputation and image. Don’t do yourself a disservice by behaving otherwise to how you would behave in face-to-face situations.

      MUSIC Group Forum is an open minded and progressive platform to discuss audio technology, products and most of all helping other users. No one opinion is “right” or “wrong” and debates which aim to prove or disprove another’s point of view, is futile. It’s far better to embrace the freedom that a forum offers to openly share in different perspectives and opinions.

      Most importantly: have courtesy, respect, a sense of humor and try not to take things too seriously. The forum should be enjoyable for everyone and even the most controversial and serious of topics can be explored with a light heart.

      On the forums, as in real life, proper etiquette is essential to getting far. Not only does it reflect upon the type of person you are but it also reflects on the clan you are in, if you are in one. Proper grammar and spelling does not only benefit you but it also makes reading posts easier on others, on your peers. Although this might seem like an asinine guide, it is needed.

      Use correct spelling

      I know that the forums consist of many different people from all over the world, many of whom do not have English as a first language. Typos happen and are an acceptable fact of life but if you can just read over what you wrote before you post it you can save everyone a lot of time and yourself a lot of trouble. If your post is filled with spelling errors chances are multiple people will say something about it, usually requesting you to change it. Make your life easier!

      Use an open mind

      Just because you disagree with someone does not mean you should go off flaming them and spamming on their thread. Be considerate! No one likes a flamer/spammer!

      Use the search tool

      Before posting, take a second and use the search function to see if anyone else has already posted about this. If you use the search button no one can blame you if your's isn't the first post after all.

      Use private messages

      When you need to talk to one person specifically don't post a post directed to them and only them. Send them a private message! Not only is this easier on you and them and keeps a thread 'cleaner' for others to read.

      Use relevant material

      Pretty much stay on topic. If for some reason a post goes off topic, don’t join in. If you want to talk about something off topic, create a new thread in the appropriate board. Out of context stuff should be just that, out!

      Use your eyes

      Read what other people have posted. Don’t look at the first post on a ten page thread and reply strictly to that. Read some of the more recent posts in that thread. Hand-in-hand with this is to not restate what someone else already posted. If someone answers a question on the Q&A board, don’t reply unless your adding to what was already said. Repetitive posting is just a waste of time.

      Do not flame

      Flaming, in the most common sense definition, is saying something negative in an attempt to get a more negative response. This is completely and totally unacceptable; it will not be tolerated. Never resort to personal insults, never extend a debate beyond the topic on hand needlessly, and try to avoid patronizing language.

      Do not troll

      Trolling is considered one of two things. Either continually running a topic into the ground incessantly, or dragging up old arguments against a specific user/group/etc. long after their appropriate discussion and targeting them specifically in arguments needlessly. Trolling is the first step towards outright harassment of other members. This is the single biggest no-no in the community. Letting every argument drop isn't always a possibility, but learning when to let things go is a valuable tool, and not just in this community.

      Do not spam

      Repetitive posts by one user, or posting a new thread when one is already easily accessible can be considered spam. It's hard enough to let players easily track this forum's community as days go on, they don't need to wade through two dozen threads about the same new weapon every day. Try searching, or at least making sure there are no fitting topics in the news or on the first page of the forum you're in.

      Do not use obscene/vulgar language or pictures

      This is self-explanatory. Purposeful violation of any bad language filter set up is grounds for serious sanctions.

      Critiquing posts

      The forum invites critiques from members on an array of topics and this is a wonderful learning tool if handled properly. But remember, criticism must tread a fine line. If criticism is aggressive, belittling or dismissive of alternative opinions it may dissuaded people from sharing their thoughts. Equally, if criticism is dishonest or intentionally biased it works against truth and no one will learn. Both extremes defeat the purpose of the forum.

      If you are being critiqued: do not take the criticism personally. It is opinions and ideas that are being critiqued, not you personally. With all criticism, evaluate it objectively and decide if you can use it to further a discussion. If you can't, then put it totally out of your mind.

      Absolutely no personal attacks under any circumstances. Do not feel compelled to defend your honor in public. Egos should not punctuate forum conversations. Posts containing personal attacks will be removed and may result in an account being suspended.

      Etiquette in threads

      Do not “hijack” threads by disrupting a current line of discussion among members. Interrupting the course of a discussion by breaking it up with sequential links to articles or raising a divergent topic for discussion is in poor form. If you’d like to discuss a different issue or post a stream of links to new articles, it’s best to start a new thread.

      Never target a fellow forum participant with derogatory, belittling, aggressive or personal remarks. You may not agree with their opinion, but that does not permit you to behave inappropriately towards them.

      If a user has a problem that they’d like to address with another individual, it’s best to discuss the issue off-forum rather than in the public setting. All differences should be worked out politely and respectfully.

      Never make derogatory remarks about the forum, its staff or formal editing decisions on the public boards. We invite feedback from all our users however, this needs to be done via the private messaging system or the report functions. And please remember, there’s a fine line between constructive and non-constructive criticism.

      Censorship and Legal Actions

      While we actively post-moderate our forum messages, due to the nature of the Internet sometimes things can get "out of hand". People may start to attack others in a personal often alarming manner. In these instances we will do our best to cancel/remove the account of the perpetrator. Your own perceptions of "what is offensive" do not apply.

      We will cancel/remove accounts at our discretion only. Do not threaten us with "legal action" in any form or shape as this will result in immediate cancellation of your account. The forums are public places of debate, if you do not like someone's message then ignore it. We will not support any legal activity or claims unless specifically directed to us by a solicitor / law firm or law enforcement agency. We and we alone decide if a forum post violates our terms and conditions and it is left up to us if we should remove such a post. The majority of the time we will respect your wishes, but we and we alone make the final decision and there is no appeal process.

      Dealing with a violation as a user

      Scenario: You're minding your own business reading a thread or scrolling down the Recent Topics list and you come across what looks like spam, a troll, flaming, off-topic discussion etc. What do you, as a user, do?

      The answer: Don't get involved. Involving yourself in a violation results in both a continuance of the violation and the possibility that you might end up violating the forum guidelines too. Above each user's post, there is a small button that says "Report." If there aren't any moderators around, go ahead and click it. The team will deal with the matter as swiftly as possible.

      Administrators and Moderators

      We’re here to help.

      We’re all approachable and we’re here to keep the forum a safe and enjoyable place for everyone, today and into the future;

      • Respect the decisions of the team; they have been made objectively to uphold the forums’ policies and protect the experiences of our users;
      • Do not publicize private conversations between yourself and staff or fellow users. It’s only polite to uphold discretion.
