    All,

    I do live game streams and need a very crisp sound.

    I need to mix in 3 PCs and at least a 1 phone and 1 Ipad device.

    I have an XLR mic that will need to utilize a Roland VT-3 as well.

    I have read that AUX channels 17/18 are the stereo channels for connecting PCs. Is there a way to transform channels 15/16 into the same setup at 17/18 were it is one solo stereo channel? Sames with 13/14 and 11/12 and so on?

    The best way i have been able to do it is stereo link but when using compression its not uniform between the channels and treats them as two channels vs 1 channel. Same goes for AUTO mix which then causes a very weird Wobble effect because it will compress the left when it is softer than right to much vs treating them as 1 single channel like aux does for 17/18.

    I hope that i am clear.

      FelixHomann Take a look at your Link Preferences. In the desktop applications yoou ou can find the Link Prefs in "Setup->Audio/Midi". Make sure to check all 4 check boxes. Then linking channels should work as expected.

      Awesome so i was doing the link correctly it appears.



      That said, the automix feature still treats the stereo channels solo from one another when auto compressing. Meaning it will compress the left channel if the right channel gets louder 15 compressed 16 open even in stereo link. Basically the stereo link is competing with itself instead of acting as one. Is this intended or a bug that will need fixed?

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Nigel,



      Welcome to the forum. I think you are misunderstanding the automix feature. It functions in a similar manner as the Dugan Automix devices that were used for panel discussions, etc. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automixer). I don't think it fits your application and it won't work with linked paired channels.

      Thank you for the clarification and the warm welcome.



      I guess i could do the same thing but using ducking and side chain the channels i need reduced to the mic.



      The reason the auto mix almost works perfectly for what I'm going for is i was able to allow my friends talking over voip (almost like a second mic) to talk and also duck the other channels as could I.



      Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way and need guidance as I'm new to live mixing and maybe ducking isn't the answer.



      For the example below how would i get this to work in a manner to make everything sound crisp and clear and still have everything live going out right at or close to 0.



      Channel 1 - Mic

      Channel 2 - VOIP

      Channel 3 - Guest Mic 1

      Channel 4 - Guest Mic 2



      Channel 15/16 - Computer 1 Stereo - Game Audio

      Channel 13/14 - Computer 2 Stereo - Misc Sounds and Audible alerts

      Channel 11/12 - Computer 3 Stereo - Dedicated Music

      Paul_Vannatto Hmm... a very good question Nigel. If it was me, I would apply the automixing to the mic channels (ch 1-4), but also send those to a mixbus. Then setup ducking of the stereo channels to be triggererd by that mixbus.

    Hello. I use a lot of virtual instruments in my computer (Kontakt 5, pianos, etc) I have test the X-32 rack with my USB connection. It's not very stable: rythm problem, some sounds don't play even with high buffer settings. Is the FireWire connection will be more stable and reliable with my setup ?

      FlorianGerstenl Rythm problems shouldn't be affected by th X32.

      Which program do you use as host? What's your audio, and your MIDI clock source?
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      RejeanDoyon I use Cubase 6.5 with Windows 7 64 bit. It's X-32 internal clock internal clock. I have compare side by side with a RME fireface UFX (FireWire connection). When a lot of virtual instruments are use, the RME is very smooth an stable. On the X-32, some missing or delayed parts and some audio sparks.
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      FlorianGerstenl Maybe you should change the ASIO buffer setting. It's possible that the standard setting of the X32 is much smaller. This leads to higher CPU load and the problems you described.
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      RejeanDoyon Yes, i have try this. I have try all combinations. Standard asio settings with 1024 buffer is the most stable.
      • April 2, 2015
    • RejeanDoyon
      Roblof Have you tried setting the clock to card instead of internal?



      I've not experienced the type of problem you have. Do you have some more intel to share?

    Hi:
    I just bought the Berhringer X32 and have been trying to connect Waves Multirack software via USB to the XUF FireWire/USB audio interface card. My hopes are to be able to run all the audio inputs during live performance through the Multirack software and back into the X32. I have had some success but have not yet found a "routing" combination that has completely worked. Has anyone tried and done this successfully??
    I am new the forum and would appreciate any thoughts.
    Best,

      InactiveUser I don't own a X32 yet but I have contacted Behringer and Waves about this and both said it would work. I would contact Waves becuase they were willing to walk me through it. If you e-mail them they will contact you back fast. They have the best customer service I have found anywhere.
      • August 30, 2012

      InactiveUser Thanks, Yes I have spoken Waves and they do not know. No one at Sweetwater or Guitar Center in LA knows the answer either. I just got my mixer and I am having success with adding only 4 channels of AUX 1-4 which is only one of the inputs directly into the onboard audio card. I am trying other combinations to see if I can come up with another combination of routing that will allow me more Wave channels. I will let you know what I find.



      Thanks,

      ChristianBoche Hi,

      by now it is a bit clumsy, because the daw returns are not useable as digital inserts on all channel without sacrifying the micpres. You can use the Aux inptus though. Behringer R&D is working on a solution as we speak, this routing option will come in a future firmware update. I'm also waiting on this, we just need a bit more patience.

      As long as you want to set up as insert on every channel, it is quite straightforward. If you route Card out to use Local 1-8, 9-16, 17-24 & 25-32 and route Inputs to use Card as source, you have insert on all your channels. You have to do any bypass in Multirack, and all channels have to have a path trough Multirack, but the X32 side is fairly straightforward if you can live with having permanent inserts.



      One question for you, does the Multirack support non-Waves plugins, I have a couple of Waves bundles and would like to use them if that doesn't limit me to Waves-only.

    Have any of you early adopters located a case for the X32?

    I corresponded with Gator last month and they seemed oblivious to the wave of X32s that's about to come ashore.

    Our friends across the pond are getting a nice case from Thomann, but shipping from GB would be a bit much!

    http://www.thomann.de/gb/thon_case_behringer_x_32.htm

    Partick Ferdig, VP, CARE - MUSIC Group Services US Inc., is checking with product management to see what he can find out regarding a flite case for the X32.

      It just seems that noone wants to upload anything, not even the site administrator. The only preset that is online just initializes the console, and I wouldn't waste a scene slot for that one when I just need to go into the Setup menu.

    Wondering if its possible to utilize a Dugan automixer via adat with this mixer? Also if it is can the channel inserts be post fader in the ADAT mode?

    Typical configuration would be 8 in 8 out via adat and the dugan would be inserted at the channel in the post fader mode.

    I see that you have ADAT I/O on the Aes50 stage box but is it routeable to the channel inserts and can the send/return be post fader?

      Chris, the Adat Outs on the S16 are just that, OUTPUTS, there isn't any Inputs!

      As far as a Dugan goes its my understanding that Behringer are working on a software version as the Dugan copyright is now in the Public Domain!

      Good luck

    I'm struggling to get Sonar 8 to control the surface on my X32. I can get audio in (via FiWi or USB), but can't control the surface.


    I've set up the surface as a Mackie Control in Sonar, and set up the X32 Remote page as 'Remote Button Enable', Protocol 'Mackie Ctrl' interface as 'Card MIDI'.

    I've got 'REMOTE' button pressed on the X32 and the 8 'bus' faders are all showing 'mute'. I can press 'DCA' and get the transport control on the displays, so it looks like it should work. But it doesn't.

    Any ideas?

      JoeSanborn Hi,

      After testing Sonar with the X32, I can say that it appears this is an issue with Sonar.

      We have contacted Sonar and made them aware, as the X32 is fully compatible with HUI and works fine on ProTools, Logic and Reaper.

      I have also looked at the MIDI data coming out of the X32 and it is sending the correct commands.

      This document may help with other DAW solutions on the PC as well:

      https://www.dropbox.com/s/xtbjbtf117...0functions.doc



      I will post anything we hear back from Sonar.

      MarioSosa Hola, he intentado varias configuraciones de control DAW sin éxito entre SONAR y mi X32 ... Es bastante raro, ya que antes tenía 2 BCF 2000 con SONAR 8.5 que nunca me dieron ningún problema! Agradecería consejo al respecto, ya que me deshice de los BCF xq la x32 los reemplazaba.

      Otra duda es cómo configuro el X32 para grabar POST dinámica y eq. Disculpen mi ignorancia, pero no me queda claro el ruteo.



      Gracias.

      salu2



      La configuración que estoy usando va más o menos así: x32, mackie mr8, powerplay pro, intel i7 3770k, visiontek 3870x2, 16Gb Ram, HDs (7200 rpm) sobre 7 ultim 64 bits. DAW Sonar (no quiero cambiar de DAW, ya que estoy acostumbrado y muy a gusto)

      También he mirado los datos MIDI que salen de la mezcladora X32 y está enviando la informacion correcta.

    This looks great, just wondering if there will be a future update to include controlling other parameters. I use a console now that allows control over almost everything with my ipad. Eq, compression and gating on all channels and buses! Its great to be able to make changes anywhere in the room, or ringing out the monitors with an ipad, that is something I just love and will not sacrifice. I will switch in a heart beat if this is in the works.

      BobHarvey Agreed ... I'm ready to move from my Presonus Studio Live to the X32, but I have gotten spoiled to moving about the room with the iPad able to control all dynamics.



      Additionally, it would be convenient to have an iPod & iPhone app for the folks on stage to readily adjust their monitor levels.

      ChrisPainter Hi guys!



      We just wanted to let you guys know we have Version 1.2 available for the XiControl iPad app on iTunes. Of course, there will be lots more updates to come in the future, but we have some significant improvements for you guys on this one!



      XiControl Version 1.2



      What's New in Version 1.2

      * Channel Parametric EQ Control – fine-tune EQ from anywhere in the room

      * Expanded Metering - whether you use the iPad remotely or at the console, levels at a glance

      * Customizable positioning of the Home/Detail/Setup tabs prevents accidental operation

      * Reset panorama to center by double-click on Pan control

      * Precision Numerical info display above detail parameter sliders

      * Bird's Eye View of all faders and meters in Page Select row for quick view of all channels



      IMPROVEMENTS



      * Touch recognition performance improvements

      * Home button function now also on the XiControl icon

      * Channel Sends page now shows the bus color and assigned names

      * Selected bus for the Sends-on-Faders function is now displayed with color, assigned name and icon

      InactiveUser Thanks Chris.



      It looks really great.

      I have not tried it only yet, but at least offline there seems to be a lot of bugs.

      -Minifaders not updating

      -Low cut showing a an odd curve on the eq display

      -only bus 1-8 named by deafult



      But great features!! I'll try to test them live tomorrow.



      One thing I just noticed. If im using eq band four as a VEQ and want to change that to PEQ and I might have some unwanted effect while changing as I have to tap trough the low cut etc. I can't see a way to implement it better without loosing the flexibility but maybe someone can come with an idea.

      DaleWaite I was wondering when you were going to update the Ipad App. It was working great until the iphone 5 came out and Apple upgraded their Ipad to work with iphone 5. This caused your App to not show faders on some of the pages. I performed the upgrade and now this bug is fixed. Thanks again.

      InactiveUser One key feature this app needs is access to the output delays.



      Personally I find using an iPad to remote to a computer running x-Control to be a much better remote than the iPad app. I do this also with other digital desks with offline software. IOS is a very limited operating system, using the iPad as a remote to a computer running the consoles offline software live yields far greater control, the only difference is you give up multitouch, but this is moot for system tuning and setup or soundchecks.

      ChristianBoche I spend a lot of time in studios and therefore I need to know how to operate the most common audio sequenzer. Sadly I just have only very basic skills in Logic and ProTools, but I'm quite good with SawStudio, Cubase&Nuendo, StudioOne and Reaper. I found StudioOne runs nicely with the X32 (both Mac and PC), but it is not that stable in comparison to reaper or SAW. Just my personal experience. So, if you need a sequencer just for studio work, maybe look into Studio One. There is even a complety free version--> http://studioone.presonus.com/free



      If you want to do live recordings, I would go with Reaper! Very stable, nice price and it comes with some important features for live recordings. F.e. you can record your tracks to two differnet paths and you have the option, to record in BradcastWave (wav.64) files. No need to worry about the 4GB file limit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAV#Limitations).



      Hope that helps.

      HenryKlein I use to work with Presonus' Studio One as well, works really nice and it's worth thinking about buying the full version. You can dig into the system with the free version.



      As was a Samplitude user for more than 15 years (before switching to Mac) I would recommend that DAW, too.



      What you will need to manage on your system is a routing setup that differs from DAW to DAW. Most systems can manage templates that are easy to use once they're made. Always remember to start the DAW AFTER the hardware is plugged and seen by your computer.

      Sure. Studio One crashes once in a while, when working with applications that uses lot's of RAM (samples, drumagog) and especially with the build in Melodyne. The 64bit version of S1 works notably better than the 32bit version concerning this topic. It never crashed, when I was just recording...but be careful when doing serious editing and mixing. I have one reaper rig as well, that never crashed within the last three years and I know two guys using reaper for doing live sound (like SAC).

      Just sayin'



      Christian



      When a rock solid live tracking behavior is on the wish list, than maybe look into Nuendo Live-->

      http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/nuendo/nuendo_live.html

      It can restore even unsaved recordings after a power out! BTW: SAWstudio can fix a damaged header too...

      AlanBean I do not yet own an X32, but am doing the research to confirm whether or not to buy. I am considering it for one purpose: to mix live shows and record at the same time. I have MacBook Pro i7 with 16 GB RAM and a Glyph Firewire 800 external drive. On the Mac I am running Pro Tools 9 using Windows 7 via Bootcamp (long story why not the Mac OS...). My glyph drive uses the only Firewire port on the Mac. Can I really record 32 tracks at once via USB from the X32 without dropouts? I have no desire to do any manipulation in the DAW during the show. I will be focusing on live mixing for FOH and will mix the recorded show later back in my Pro Tools HD studio.

      Is anyone recording to Pro Tools with this console successfully?

      This board looks almost too good to be true for the price. I have had a couple of Behringer items break down in the past...reliability means a lot when recording live shows for a client!
