    Is it possible/ Has anyone managed to control an X Air remotely over the internet. I don't want to 'live' mix just access for set up and support purposes.

     

    Thanks

      I've been able to remotely take control of an Xair mixer using Teamviewer.

      Just like any other service behind an internet router you can also port forward (UDP on port 10024 I suppose) the XAIR Edit port to the internal IP-Address of a XAIR console. At the your side you have to enter the remote external IP-Address where the XAIR console is behind to access and control.
      The portforwarding must be configured in the router of the person you want to support, so teamviewer will be a more practical solution

    I am running this configuration

    X32 as FOH to 2 S16.

    Leaving the FOH X32 via AES50A to the S16 into the AES50A side of one out the B and into the second AES50A side.

    I want to come out of the AES50B side of the FOH console into the A side of a X32 rack but would like to know how to configure the routing on the X32 FOH to send those signals coming from the S16s to the X32 rack mount for broadcast and live stream.

    I saw the rought set up in this video but no routing guidelines are there to go from the X32 FOH to a broadcast X32.  I would be going from the AES50B oon the FOH board to the AES50A of the broadcast X32

      On the FOH console:


      Routing>AES50B


      Outputs 1-32: AES50A 1-32


      ^This sets the signals to be output at the FOH's B socket to be whatever is incoming on the FOH's A socket (the signals from the S16s.)


       


      Then on the Broadcast X32Rack:


      Routing>Inputs


      Input1-32: AES50A 1-32


      ^This sets the broadcast console to get input signals from whatever is connected to its AES50A socket: (the FOH console, which is outputting signals from the S16s.)


       


      You'll need to ensure both consoles are set at the same sample rate, and set the broadcast console to slave its clock off the FOH console connected to its AES50A socket (Setup>Global, Synchronization:AES50A.)

    I work at a theatre which has an X32 running v2.10.    Can I upgrade directly to v4.02, or do I have to upgrade to an interim version (say v3.x) before I can jump to v4.x?   Does v4 support all serial numbers, or only a certain range?  I was not able to find a complete set of release notes listing all the versions (list of improvements, feature adds, and bug fixes), does one exist and I just didn't look int eh correct place?    Similarly, I've not been able to find older firmware versions on the website, are they somewhere where I couldn't find them?  I'd like to have a copy of 2.10 just in case something goes awry during the update process and I would need to revert to it.   Similarly, all the questions I've asked are things I've encountered in doing upgrades with other types of devices

     

    Thanks!

      Yes, you can install v4.02 straight up, however it's recommended that you take note of the console's network settings, and backup any scenes\shows\library presets first.


       


      Also, you may also need to upgrade the firmware on any digital stageboxes you're using too.


       


      Finally, double check your remote apps.  A newer console firmware will probably require a new version of the remote control apps.  Some newer versions of the control apps won't work on older hardware that the previous versions did, so you might need to update your remote control hardware.


       


      I don't think there's a full list of release changes for all firmwares in one document, just the most recent one.  To get the full list you'd probably have amalgamate the contents of the release notes of the last v1.x release before v2 was released, the last v2.x release before v3 was released, and the last v3.x release before v4.x was released.


       


      I recommend contacting @Paul_Vannatto re older fw versions, he's probably got them all backed up.


       


      PS, Paul, if such a list exists of the full change list all the way from v1.0>4.02 I'd be interested in a copy (or links to the individual firmwares so with release notes so I can compile a list myself.)  I'd find it interesting to see how many new features have been added (for free) to a console over its 7 year or so lifespan with no significant hardware changes.

      Trying again! I just posted a response and it disappeared. It isn't even in the spam folder. 


       


      Hi Larry @LQS ,


      Welcome to the forum. As Craig @CraigFowler mentioned you can upgrade from 2.10 to 4.02, making sure you have backed up everything and taken note of all settings in the Setup screens (except for the preamps screen). 


       


      I do indeed have firmware 2.10. Unfortunately it won't allow it to be attached (this time it gave an error message). So here is a link to the update on my Google drive.


       


      Craig, I'll see if I can put together a list of all firmware update points, but may take awhile.

      Hi Paul,
      I have interrest in the list of firmware update points as well, please!



      @LQS Larry, I have never updated my two S16 while I always have followed up with every update that came out for the X32/X32rack. So the S16 run still at their originally firmware when I purchased them back in 2013 and work fine till today.

      @Paul_Vannatto 


      I posted a list of all the firmware updates and what was in each here in the forum a few years ago, I am looking for it as i usually save things like that but where I did...yikes.. If this were the old forum i could find it. I found the 2.0-2.16 part so far...I know the rest is here somewhere.

      Found 1.01-3.09


      1.01-1.15


      1.15 (2013-07-09)


      New Features: • TRS Aux Input signals can now be transmitted via Card Out, AES50A Out and AES50B Out directly, without the need for assigning them to the DSP processing blocks first. The additional option is "AuxIn 1-6 / TB" carrying the physical auxiliary input signals 1-6 and the talkback signals A and B. • Aux Input Routing improved > The Aux Inputs signals can now be selected in blocks of 2, 4 or 6 Inputs, choosing from these options:


      fw 1.14 fw 1.15 AUX IN 1-4 AUX INPUTS LOCAL IN 1-4 LOCAL IN 1-2 AES50A 1-4 LOCAL IN 1-4 AES50B 1-4 LOCAL IN 1-6 CARD 1-4 AES50A 1-2 AES50A 1-4 AES50A 1-6 AES50B 1-2 AES50B 1-4 AES50B 1-6 CARD 1-2 CARD 1-4 CARD 1-6


      Note: The (remaining) Aux Input channels will be fed from the physical Aux Inputs 1-6 if not specified otherwise.


      Improvements: • X32 RACK now can directly access channel name/icon editing by holding the SELECT encoder down, while pressing the Utility button. • X32 CORE can be initialized by holding the SELECT encoder depressed while switching on • New 'Safe Shutdown' function for X32 CORE, by holding the USB button depressed while in SETUP menu • New console server routines improving USB Recorder performance • Server improved for X32-Edit 1.2 MCU remote control functions • 'Select follows Solo' function only selects a channel when solo is activated, not when deactivated • channel icon and name now copied when activating a channel link


      1.14 (2013-06-12) New Features: • Channel Fader Auto Select option – allows selecting channels by simply touching the channel fader • New User Assignable Control Features: - fader of the selected channel can be controlled by a user-assignable encoder - tape (USB recorder) control can be assigned to user-assignable buttons • New X-USB expansion card for 32 x32 channel I/O via USB 2.0 supported


      Improvements: • Large indication of selected channel number on main LCD when no channel icon is set • EQ section lo-cut/hi-cut LEDs now also indicate crossover filter types • Headamp settings are copied when linking channels (with global link preference 'Delay+HA' on) • S16 stage box gains can be pre-set, even when no stage box is connected (setup/preamps page) • Extended range for digital trim now +/-18 dB



      1.13 (2013-02-18) Improvements: • New OSC server functions (osc-server V0.90) • Mackie Control Universal support improved (i.e. for Cakewalk SONAR) • New user assignable controls for faders, dca and mutegroups • Insert-'source' text for fx 1..4 indicating where the effect is inserted • Corrected scene parameter safes for Preamp and Delay • Improved redraw function for scene load • Corrected indication of channel send fader position on home screen • Firmware required for XControl remote control software version 1.01 and later



      1.12 (2013-01-17) Improvements: • Encoder acceleration improved • Channel AFL Solo now always post insert • Sends On Fader related freeze fixed


      New Features: • Full support for all new X32 models


      1.10 (2012-11-29) Improvements: • Bus AFL solo now always post insert • Talkback gain reduced (previous default setting was too high) • Handling of fader move events while switching fader assignment fixed • Sporadic noise when changing insert position removed • User assignable buttons now correctly return to previous banks when used for sends on faders


      New Features: • Direct control of all mic preamps independent from their channel assignment to allow inline recording mode and live card inserts: - route local or AES50 inputs to card, - route card returns to console input channels - set preamp gain (2.5 dB steps) on new preamp setup page, - adjust digital trim +/-12 dB on console 'tape return' channels • 2 new Dual-band DeEsser Effects (dual-mono, stereo) with M/S processing option (can be used as insert or side-chain processes) • The user assignable buttons can now be (re-)assigned to JUMP function regardless of previous function (by holding one of the SET buttons) • Matrix buses have some new features that enable them to be used in simple speaker processing applications: - phase inverter switchable in config/preamp section - signal tap (pre/post EQ, pre/post fader) from bus sends to matrix can be selected now - EQ bands LOW and HIGH now can be switched to crossover filter types (butterworth, bessel, linkwitzriley up to 24dB/oct). Note: The crossover filter types use up the intermediate bands LOW2 and HIGH2 respectively when activated.


      New features with GEQ-On-Fader function (reset all, jump in blocks of 8) • On request for theatre productions-the scene parameter safes for mute and fader/pan in input and bus channels, can now be set independently • The meter screens for input channels, mix buses and aux/FX now show the channel's mute status


      Notes: • Due to additional scenes parameters (matrix bus options: signal tap, x-over filter in EQ and phase reverse) all scenes that use matrix buses should be checked, because previously created scenes do not contain these additional parameters yet. In order to make old scenes consistent with Firmware 1.10 it is recommended to initialize the console, then load and immediately save back each scene.


       


      1.09 (2012-09-27) Improvements: • When 'safe main level' and 'M/C depends on Main L/R' are activated, M/C level is no longer set to -8 on powerup • User defined buttons now correctly return to previous page when used as channel select • 'Pre' leds now correctly work when auxes or fx returns are selected • Player now plays non-canonical wave files with no artifacts at the end • Recorder automatically restarts with new file when size limit (2GB) is exceeded • DCA solo now also includes channels that are not routed to main L/R (e.g. to group buses) • Erratic behaviour of ch 1 input delay and Matrix 6 insert fixedv

      1.07 (2012-08-22) Improvements: • Sporadic freeze when using presets/scenes with long names (> 15 characters) fixed



      1.06 (2012-08-21) Improvements: • Freeze when using library FX load with confirmation disabled fixed • Thump noise when using master GEQ and loading tremolo/pan into any other FX slot removed • Main bus afl solo fixed • Non-ASCII characters in filenames (on USB thumb drive) are now ignored so that these files can be selected for play (though it is recommended to use ascii characters only) • After song has been played (in single mode), player returns to stop mode • High EQ in tube stage FX fixed • Dyn key source parameter now correctly disabled on matrix and main channels

    I had thought that I read somewhere that you could control the X32 across an internet connection (not just the local network, LAN). Has anyone been able to do this successfully? If so, how did you point the port to it and what software were you running to control it?

    I'm needing to set up some scenes and snippets remotely for an operator... talking them through it will take too much time, and most likely they'll mess things up from miscommunications.

      Just like any other service behind a internet router you can also port forward the X32 Edit port to the internal IP-Address of a X32 console. At the remote side you have to enter the remote external IP-Address where the X32 console is behind to access and control.

      Another, saver option, is to create a VPN connection to the remote network and start to control the X32 console by it's local IP-Address over that VPN tunnel. A VPN tunnel give only access to the remote network with a correct username and password (and some VPN options like OpenVPN also make use of SSL keys).

      In X32Edit, how do you enter the port number?

      You don't Scott. The X32-Edit is fixed at the 10023 port for the X32/M32. The X-Air-Edit is also fixed at the 10024 port for the X-Air/M-Air consoles. Is there a reason why you want to change ports?


       


      :edit: I think you are referring to Vasco's post. I think you need to add the 10023 port to the VPN tunnel.

    I have a question for a future project:
    When I record a session, where 1 channel has reversed polarity (for instance bottom snare), is that channel recorded also in reversed polarity?

    If yes, I can import it in my DAW as it is.

    If no, I have to reverse that channel also in my DAW.

      Depends on the tap point for the recording.


       


      The polarity inversion is one of the first things that happens in the channel processing, so if you're recording straight off preamps, or directly off a digital source before any processing, then the signal hitting your DAW won't be inverted.


       


      However if you're recording the DO from an actual channel, the earliest tap point on the X32 is "In\LC" which is post the polarity inversion, so signals tapped of channel DOs will have the polarity inversion hitting your DAW.

    Have X32 rack + S16 + S32.

    Trying to get Mixbus to send to the adat outs of the S32.... but can't seem to work it out! Hope someone can help! Thanks

      With the S\DL 16\32 stageboxes, they typically route signals hitting their the AES50 inputs in the 1-16 range to their analogue outs, 17-32 range to the ADATs, and 33-48 range to their ultranet sockets.


      Stage whatever signals (eg your mixbuses) you want to appear there in the routing>out1-16\auxout\ultranet\userout tabs (assuming fw v 4+)


      (Assuming you've staged those signals in the out1-16 tab, and using the AES50 A socket on the console to connect to the stagebox)


      Go Routing>AES50A, and set Outputs17-32 to out1-16.

    Can anyone provide information on obtaining a replacement fader for the Midas M32 console?  I can find them on the internet, but those that I find appear to be the the correct fader (ProFader 100mm), but have the mounting studs and not the longer bracket with the screw holes at each end.  Apparently the motor has gone out on mine.  Tried reseating the connectors to no avail.

    Thanks, 

    Richard.

      Have you tried contacting Midas service on this? If you registered your M32 when you got it the Warrantee is extended but I am not sure for how long. May by they will send you a replacement so you can put it in yourself.

      Yes, I did, if submitting an online case to the support counts.  I received the automated response from MT Care, but nothing further to date.  If I could determine proper part number and souce, I would be happy to purchase and replace it myself.

      Is there a part number om it. I am pretty sure that Midas makes their own faders.


       


      Is it this one? https://www.midasconsoles.com/Categories/Midas/Mixers/Accessories/PRO-FADER-%28200-mm%29/p/P0AHW#googtrans(en|en)

      @KevinM32 Fader Mount (full view)M32 Fader Mount (full view)M32 Fader mount (note screw hole)M32 Fader mount (note screw hole)Well, yes and no.  That is the correct fader.  However, the mounting arrangement is not the same (at least on my M32.)  The fader shown (which I actually purchased earlier off the internet based on a salesperson assurance and internet reviews (which I guess I should go correct)) has the "M3 threaded pillar fixings on 120.0 mm (4.7") fixing centres" mounting arrangement.  The failed fader (which I have removed for documentation) has a longer top frame and two screw holes on each end.  I have attached two photos as examples.  I considered disassembling the orignal fader and putting the required frame on the replacment one (as shown by you), but determined that was not optimal as I was unsure I could successfully replace the plastic gear and decided against it.  I'm not going to "duct tape and bailing wire" a perfectly good mixer (yet.)


      Hopefully someone from Midas will come along with the correct part, or my support ticket will provide the correct answer.  But thanks for trying.

     I have an X32, a dn32 card, a waves server one, a network switch, and waves multi-rack. I want to know if it is possible (routing wise) to have 16 channels of waves insert along with an insert on the l&r main outs.

    This is an X32 routing issue.. can I use the auxes and the channel inserts at the same time.

    How would I Route that?

      Hi,


      Yes I think it is possible. I do not have a Soundgrid Server but set up a Native Version of what you are asking about. Routing should be the same. I wrote about it on my blog with pictures you can read here: https://survivethegig.com/x32-waves-channel-and-bus-inserts/


      If you already know how to route the channels and just need to add the Main Bus you do it through Aux In Remap. This requires using Card or User In 1-2, 1-4, or 1-6 though and your channels will have to be routed after it. There are a few steps to go through but I covered them in the blog post above.


      Hope this helps.

    -Standard Mute off for sends to busses. This is logical because you don't want to be putting it off when you are 5 minutes to showtime and notice that all your input channels to your busses are muted. You lose a lot of time with that.

    -Standard EQ on (disputable)

    - Custom controls for channel specific functions: Gain, trim, Lowcut knob, hicut knob FOR SELECTED CHANNEL. So every time you select a channel, the custom control knows which channel to change.

    - The ability to change folder names and snapchot names inside the wing

    - when using mute groups, the groups are hard muted, maybe give the choise to hard mute or soft mute, could be nice

    - When assigning stereo channels i really get annoyed by the fact that i can only assign channel 11 to 12 for example. I would like to assign channel 11 to 10 too. Maybe with a drag-select functionality. similar to soundcraft VI-series. Many boards have this nowadays and i would like it on the wing too. Saves a lot of time in the middle of a busy evening...

    -show control features would be great too. Maybe think of the ability to add text to snapchots so you can write your cues.

    Note that these are all possible improvements that I would like to see in the future. I'm really happy with my wing already, but these could take the board to a different level.

    Regards

    When using the tap functionality on my wing and assigning it to the custom controls. The wing will do this perfectly to the first 7 buttons and start flashing. At the 8th button it will assign and work. But it doesn't flash. Can this be solved. It's not a hardware problem with me because the button itself works with color when i assign a mute to it.
