    I had a very nice connection and great sound having my X32 connected through my Waves Soundgrid Impact combo, using Waves SuperRack for the the PC app that it all works with. I used my Korg Kronos through the system. It sounded really good, but I wanted to try another way of hooking it up so that the 2 main L and R (which was all I was using on the outputs of the Kronos), and then using the 4 Aux outputs to route them individually through the Waves system to help alleviate the polyphony issues of everything being condensed as it was, though it did sound great with those 2. 

    Now, the problem is, it is just too much work to try and reroute all of each of my combis for custom input settings on the X32, and in the Waves system. So I tried to undo it all. Now, I can't get back to where I was before no matter what I try. That problem is, when I go into the "routing" on the X32, where I should be having the "inputs" going to "card", it does not have any signal and it doesn't show on the meters on the x32 or the Waves SuperRack app. But, when I assign the inputs to "local", it will play through the X32 to the speakers, but that's all. I have signal then. But I can't do what I did before, which is what is supposed to be, and that is having the "inputs" on the routing on the X32 going to "card".  So then, I have NO signal. I never had this problem before and I can't fix it. 

    So someone please help with this.

      rokuapp Harvest Moon: Back to Nature was one of my favourite games on the PlayStation 1 when I was a kid, and I wanted to play it again. In a nutshell, I bought it for the sake of nostalgia. I also got Crash Team Racing the other day for nostalgia's sake. Although I enjoyed SoS, I didn't enjoy CTR as much as I had hoped. https://web.sites.google.com/view/rokuappforpc

    Hi! How do i save the ohm settings? i program it to be 4ohm. Save it to slot 1. I also did som eq anf filter on the same save. But when i shut it down and restart is the ohm is changed. The EQ and filter settings are saved corect. Any ideas? I own two and they both do the same.

      Hi @vgson ,


      I wouldn't worry about this and it won't change the actual setting for limiter on the output.This would just be part of the calculator to figure out limiter settings, the Vp value is the one that matters and that should not change. You do not have to "set" the load of the amp. Hopefully this slide from LAKE training will give you some insight into how limiter values stay the same when you add more speakers to a channel and reduce the load impedance...


       


      Notice in Nx Edit, when you half the load, the W value will double also.

      Ouch....sorry. The good news (if any) is that fantastic 10 year warranty still has you covered. FWIW mine has been trouble free (knock wood) for 3 years. Maybe they will just give you a new one! Hope so.

    Hi All,

    I'm new to the X32, recently purchased a Rack and 2ea SD8 units for stage R & L controls.  I've been able to determine the appropriate routing into the Rack using the SD8, and setup my bus mixes for monitor & IEM feeds out.  I also want to route my mains L&R running through the SD8 units.  I setup Out 8 (L) and Out 9 (R) for the 2 SD8 units.  I haven't been able to test this yet, but I imagine if I set these outputs as pre-fader, I will be able to using the singular Mains Fader to control the output being fed to the mains, rather than having to use the Mix Bus 8 & 9 faders or setting up a DCA for the 2 buses.  

    Is this correct?  Thanks in advance!

      I think you may be confusing Mixbuses with logical outputs, Scott. They are quite separate things. You would normally use post-fader signal-taps for all outputs - Main and Mixbuses - so you have level controls.


       


      If you get stuck with the routing, export your scene and attach the .scn file to your post (see Choose File button below).

      Hi @RexBeckett 


      I have uploaded my offline scene for you to have a look at.  The Mains going out of Outputs 1 on both the Stage R & L SD8 units is behind my routing them to Bus 1 and 9 respectively, as I want the XLR to travel from the SD8 to the Mains.  


      The breakdown below was setup to enable the Routing on the X32 Inputs/Outputs... Hope this is helpful.  Inputs 1-12 on the X32 are being used for an electronic drum kit with individual outs (1-8) and wireless mics (9-12).


      I really appreciate your having a look at the attached and providing your thoughts on how I should be managing everything.  Best regards, Scott

      Do you need both L and R on both stageboxes, or do you only need L on 1 and R on the other?


       


      Edit: Also, are your running Console>Stagebox>Stagebox (ie the stageboxes are daisy-chained) or are you running Stagebox>Console<Stagebox?

      I'm planning on L & R only being on the designated L & R stage boxes.  I currently have it running SB>Console<SB for testing and it's working exactly as I want.  I've set the scene up for how we are organized in our rehearsal studio, and will build a separate scn for Gigs with how the stage will be arranged.

    Hi all! 

    Well,when i make a cover song video for youtube i would like to use my small mixer for a better and stronger signal and i connect that via usb cable to iphone.(my usb adapter to lighning is original product by Apple)the video app (shure motive) recognize the connection as "external mic" and the level of signal clips on screenbut when i tap on to start knob to start ,doesnt let and i see a warning on the screen "the media device you use cannot be defined"(something like that) or the iphone makes the video "non audio"! Do you have any idea?Thanks

      Hi Alan @FF 


      Welcome to the forum. What is the current firmware version on the X32 Rack (see Setup, Global screen, left side) and what firmware are you trying to upgrade to?


       


      Regarding your question whether the X32 Rack is difficult to comprehend, it depends on what you mean and how much background audio and digital experience you have. I have 2 X32 Racks since 2014 and have done hundreds of events with them.

      Hi Alan,


       


      if I understand, your problem is, that you have the uncompressed updater file on your usb drive but the Desk will not load it?


      There are different ways to update a X32.


      on old consoles you could simply insert the stick and then turn it on. It would automatically load the update. On newer ones you had to press and hold the usb button while turning it on.


      On the newest firmware versions you can also go under 


      setup --> global --> system controls --> update fw.


       


      If you have tried the last way, I would suggest trying the second way.


       


      Hope That helps

      Hello @Patrickwall1 , welcome to the community.


       


      What device are you using to play the song? What type of cable are you using to connect the player to the EPS500? Which input connector(s) are you using?

      Hello David, welcome to the community.


       


      I cannot help you much with the Mac side of things but here are the basic settings to get the mixer working:


       


      Set the fader for the channel you want to use to 0 and set the Main Mix faders also to 0. Turn the channel Gain control up until the Clip LED on the channel strip flashes when you speak/sing/play into the mic - then turn it down a little so the LED does not flash. You should see the LEDs above the Main Mix faders flash when you speak. Adjust the channel Gain so that the 0 LEDS light when you speak/sing/play into the mic but the LEDs above don't.


       


      Repeat this for each channel that you want to use. Adjust the balance between the channels with the channel faders while listening to the Main Mix with headphones connected to the Phones socket. The monitoring level is adjusted with the Phones/CTRL RM control. You can adjust the three EQ controls for each channel to get the sound that you want.


       


      The Main Mix is sent via USB to the PC for recording. Make sure that the red  2-TR/USB To Main button is not pressed as this will mute the USB output to avoid possible feedback.


       


      You may need to set your Mac's Mic Privacy to allow the recording software to access the mic - see Mac Mic Privacy.

      What software are you going to use? Garageband?

      Thanks for that. I managed to get it up and running with a bit of trial and error. I'll follow your advice re the settings. I'll get it another crack next weekend. Software looks to be my main issue now. I managed to get some audio recorded on QuickTime but not sure how to get the files transferred into GarageBand.

    I have never quite understood the concept of linking two busses on the XR/MR18 to create a stereo output.   There is something I'm missing.  

    Say you link Bus 1 and Bus 2 for stereo in ear monitors.   Bus 1 is panned hard left and Bus 2 is panned hard right.  But there doesn't seem to be a way to use the stereo mix to your advantage.  If you want guitar more left and keyboards more right, the only way I have figured out how to do that is to pan the channels left and right, but that also effects the Main LR mix. 
    I haven't read or figured out a way to do that on the mixer.  

    What seems to make more sense is if you don't stereo link them but use them as two mono channels into stereo in ears, you can independently raise or lower the channel volumes in Bus 1 and Bus 2.  So if you wanted guitar slightly left, you raise the guitar channel in Bus 1 and lower it in Bus 2.   If you want keyboards right, you do the opposite. 

    Can anyone explain why linking the two Busses in stereo would be useful?  Am I missing how you would pan things for your monitor mix?

      @PhilipAngell 


      Hello, what you are missing is once the 2 busses are linked, every ch has a pan control for its send. You can then pan each ch anywhere in the stereo field for those buses. What program do you use? It's not always obvious where the pan is. 



      Below ch5 is panned slightly left in linked busses 1+2
