    Hi guys, 

    I have a question and i hope we all can learn from each another. 

    Recently i have updated the firmware of the DP48 to 1.2, after which i am not able to remote control the other units via the 1st unit. 

    Is there a minimum unit to setup in order to do remote control of the other unit? Or is there a special CAT5 Cables we should be using in order for the connectivitiy to get thru. 
    Please take note that all my 5 units has signals passing thru from the M32 Console. 

    Hope to hear from you guys.

    Cheers!

      Are you trying to change the group names and assignments from the first DP48 or from the M32? If it is from the first DP48 (in the chain), do you have it set  with the remote on (its device ID should say MSTR) and the rest should have remote on and should have unique device ID. Once that is setup, on the master (first) DP48, goto the Broadcast line and press the encoder. 


       


      If you are trying to send from the M32 Library, AES50 screen, we found a bug which the fix will be part of the next release.

      Hi Paul,


      Appreciate your replies. 


      just to recap, the first DP48 on master and the rest are on their on IDs, after which punch in the broadcast on the first unit and select the other unit ID to control them correct? 


      Unfortunately it doesn't seems to be working. Did i miss out any step?

      Did you turn on Remote on all the DP48's before pushing the Broadcast?

    Hi guys, 
    so I have an m32c and building up a rack rig to use as a Monitor/FOH split rig. I still need to do more research but looking for opinions on what stagebox I need that will give me the most flexible options. I've been looking into the pro series stageboxes but the I/O s are confusing and it's a bit overwhelming with the options. Looking at maybe 2 DL 153s and a DL231? If I was running a Pro 1 with the m32c? Is that enough channels? Or would I need something different?

      @Daanderson You would need to confirm the Pro level "blue" stagebox versions you choose can operate at 48K. Many do but not all as I recall. The DL32 and DL16 boxes would be better with the M32C imo if you want to stay Midas and Midas Pro level mic pre's. They are more or less meant for each other. You can also daisy chain via aes50 with them. With a 'Blue' pro level stagebox, even though they have the extra aes50 ports you can't. The ports are there for redundancy, should one fail the other keeps on going (which won't apply with the M32C anyway) So if you have one Blue stagebox that works at 48k on aes50a, that's it for that port regardless of ch count. Yes you still can use aes50b if need be but daisy chaining can be an issue with those boxes and of that you should be aware.


       


      Also any of the Behringer versions will work with the M32C. The SD8/16 or the S16/S32. If you are primarily using this at shows as opposed to a studio setup, I would suggest using multiple small boxes like 2 DL16's instead of 1 DL32. Or 2 DL16's and one or 2 SD8's. This allows the stageboxes to be placed on the stage more aligned with what plugs in there. An Sd8 for drums or keys, DL16 for stage L and R etc. Just my opinion.


       


      How you get any of these to the FOH is another whole story to consider. Some plan to split the ch's so the FOH can be independent of your monitor rig needs consideration. One case for the DL32/S32 as a stagebox is the way it operates (unlike other stageboxes). It allows 2 mixers to access the full 32 mic pre's via its aes50A and B ports. So any venue that had an M32 X32 or WING at FOH you could forget bringing any other splitter devices.

      Hi @Daanderson 

      As @GaryHiggins pointed out - the "Blue" stage boxes, i.e. DL15x, DL25x, DL231 are able to operate at 48kHz but you're limited on the amount of devices you can connect as these units cannot daisy-chain like the DL16 + DL32. 

      You mentioned interest in the DL231. This would be a great option, especially if you're using a Pro1. Because it features asynchronous clocking, you'd be able connect the Pro1 (96kHz) to one side of the DL231 and the M32C (48kHz) to the other. If you went with DL153, for example, you'd also need to integrate a DN9650 w/ KT-AES50 card for the two consoles to communicate digitally.

    Hello Tribers,

    I see in Routing where my mix bus feeds are assigned to Analog Outputs.  But, I am not seeing where the 16 Analog Outputs are routed to Main L/R.  The only two physical XLR out feeds are the L/R on outputs 15/16.  All the other mix buses find their way to Main L/R but I cannot figure out where that is configured.

    Thanks!

      Hi @SonicWave 


      Check the XLR Out screen (for Out 9-16 assignment) if you have the Main LR connected to the back of the M32. If you are using a stagebox to make these connections, check the AES50 screen.

      I should be more clear.


      Currently, all my Mix Buses somehow end up in the main mix.   I did not configure that but each of my mix buses (with the exception of ones going to XLR 15 and 16) all end up in the main FOH mix. 


      @Paul_Vannatto   are you saying those are assigned in blocks of 8 in the XLR Out tab?  If so, I am super confused.

      If that is the case, it wasn't evident in your first post. If you have your mixbuses going to Main LR, and you don't want that, select each mixbus master fader, then select the Main screen and disable the LR.

      I am happy that my Mix Buses are going to the Main output but I am confused how they are getting there.


      I understand the routing from mix bus to analog out. My question is how is the analog out is getting to L/R.


      MixBus-1 -> AnalogOut-1 -> Main L/R


      Where is that routing configured?   The only physical outputs from the board are two XLR for L/R and two XLR for monitor mixes.  My IEM's use CAT 5.


      Thanks!

    Hello everyone. I hope that all are doing well. I pastor a church and we purchased the m32 back in August of last year. I have started tracking our services on sd cards over the last month but just recently tried to use a daw to capture the 32 tracks of audio. I downloaded Waves Tracks Live onto my laptop that has windows 10. I was under the impression that once the m32 was connected to my laptop that it would instantly recognize it as an interface. However, it never shows up as an available interface. I also downloaded the trial version of digital performer 10 and tried it. It still will not recognize the m32 as an interface. I then tried to do the same thing on our church's desktop in the sound booth that also runs windows 10 only to experience the same thing. If anyone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Hi Pastor Coe @PastorCoe 


      Welcome to the forum. Did you download and install the M32 ASIO drivers for Win10 (found here)?


      We prefer Reaper as a DAW here.

      I have downloaded the 4.59 Asio driver but no daw that I have installed will recognize it. Also, I forgot to mention that I installed reaper on the church's desktop pc and it is the only daw that will recognize the dn-32 but when I choose it, it won't allow me to proceed with it as an interface.

    When controlling the mix busses on the M32 for IEMs, how many mix busses can be controlled at a time?

    0 120
    • DaleAlexander
      GaryHiggins

      @DaleAlexander 


      Hello, control in what way, do you mean how many can be used in any given situation? It depends on how many are being otherwise used for fx. 12 mono or 6 stereo is common when still using 4 fx buses

      Gary,


      We have 9 musicians controlling their monitor mixes with their phones and/or pads wirelessly through the Ethernet port of the M32.  When we were just using 8 mix busses everything worked great, but when we added the 9th mix bus control things get a little weird on the 9th buss.


      So is there a limit to the quantity of remote control logins to the console.  I know that A&H does limit the # to 8 maximum.


      Thanks,

      @DaleAlexander 


      It wouldn't be the mixer, could be the router to # of devices limit. If you have a dual mode router, some could try use the 5ghz band and some use 2.4?

      • April 26, 2020

      So there is no limit (other than the # of mix busses) to the remote control on the console?


      Thanks,

      @DaleAlexander 


      As far as I know there is not. You could test it to verify. See if with 8 people connected, anyone can access all the busses without issue, I suspect it's the 9th device tipping the scales.

    I haven't seen any new development from Midas in quite a while. Is Midas still doing development on new consoles? Especially looking at an enhanced M32 (with 64 channels and more effects processing) or a new PRO line (64 channels and more effects processing). The current line is so far behind the competion now. I like the M32 but I'm running out of channels and effects processing along with with 92khz processing/recording like current competiion. I saw a "new" M32 Live but that isn't really anything new that makes it compatitive with competitors.

    2 M32 + 1 DL32 sharing gain....is there any follow up gain feature that can be used at "slave console" to auto correct any gain changes from the"master console"????

    • Angelos7

      @Angelos7 Yes. There is a trim control for the console not controlling the pre-amps.

      Hi Angelos @Angelos7,


      Welcome to the forum. Yes you can enable the HA Gain Sharing (Setup, Preamps screen) that will provide each console with digital trim (+-18 db) on each channel strip. What that means is that the console that has control of the physical preamps (gains, phantom) will have to adjust the physical gains on the Setup, Preamps screen).

      KevinMaxwell

      Let’s for example say you are talking about a FOH console as the master and the Monitor console as the Slave. I assume that what you are asking for is can the monitor console auto correct what the master console just did. In Other Words if a person on the FOH console just increases the preamp gain on a vocal mic is there a feature that will then decrease the gain (or trim) on the monitor console so that mix doesn’t change.


       


      The answer is no this feature is not in the M32 console system, at least not in an automated sense. It can be done manually but not automatically. This is why people recommend a hard wired or transformer split before the consoles preamps for a 2 console system with one at FOH and another one at Monitor world, so what one mix person does doesn’t affect the other mix person.

    I am having a issue when trying to use a guitar VSTi while running through a input channel. Everything works but I hear the clean guitar coming from the channel and the VSTi signal. Both are coming through on Aux1-2.

    How should I set up a input channel so I only hear the VSTi ?

    thanks.

      Hi Ron @S-Audio , 


       


      Did you remember to take the channel out of the Main LR mix?  It sounds like you have both the dry signal and the wet return in the mix.

      @S-Audio see pic below, In the card out menu its sending the auxin 1-6/T to card 1-8, but if it's desired for another bank of DAW or X-Live ch's, just use that different bank instead OR setup a "user bank" and pick the aux's and another 2 ch, rather than Talkback, that fits your input DAW or X=Live setup the best.
