    My church just got an x32 and we've spent a lot of time watching videos on setup etc. I'd swear I remember seeing a video that showed a way to isolate a specific band in the EQ to listen to in order to hear what it sounds like. Say I wanted to listen to just the 1k-2k range to see what is coming through a channel in that range. Or maybe pick a range about 1k wide and sweep through to find a problematic sound. Is there a way to do that or am I going crazy and remembering things that didn't happen?

      Unfortunately the X32 does not have that feature. But the Wing does.

      The "boost+sweep" method of eq generally involves (optionally soloing a channel,) boosting the gain on an eq band to make it really obvious, sweeping around until you find the worst part of the sound (start at a lower frequency rather than a higher one so if there is anything nasty you get the fundamental rather than a harmonic,) then once you found the bad part of the sound you drop the gain on the eq band.  However when you do this you'll hear the boost + sweep process everywhere that channel is routed; FOH + monitors alike, so it's best to do this in sound check\rehersal, rather than during the actual set. You can repeat this on all 4 bands of the eq on every channel if you want, however the more eq you use the less natural the sound becomes.  Less is more.  Decent mic selection, mic placement, mic technique, gain structure and hpfs do a whole lot more to fix a sound than eq can. 


       


      As Paul says, the Wing has a feature that allows you to do this and only hear it in headphones, not FOH+monitors, but the X32 doesn't.


       


      However, on the X32 if you have a spare bus you could make it work by assigning a channel to the bus (ensuring the bus isn't routed anywhere,) soloing + eqing the bus in headphones, then copying the new eq curve from the bus back to the original channel.  However the bus peqs have 6 eq bands, whereas the channel peq only has 4.  If using the console's own copy+paste function (at least in Edit,) you have to use bands 1+2+4+6 on the bus eq: bands 3+5 of the bus eq don't get copied across to a channel eq.


       


      Another option to listen to a particular frequency range of a particular channel is to get creative with the key filter solo of the compressor on a spare channel\bus, setting its source and frequency to the channel\frequency range you're actually interested in.  However I'm not sure if you'd need a separate control surface to actually adjust the eq though, because Edit isn't clear about whether you can select a channel, solo the key filter on its compressor, then select another channel and adjust its eq whilst still having the key filter in solo.

    Hi,

    My out of warranty xr 12 shuts down after an hour.  Repair shop said $275 plus shipping to repair so I just got a new one.  I want to transfer a snapshot of the set up to my new unit via USB (or any method).  Is this possible?

      Hello Max, welcome to the community.


       


      The XR12 does not have any way to save snapshots to a USB stick. You can save the settings using XAir Edit on a PC or Mac though.


       


      Load each stored snapshot on the XR12, click the Save button (top right) and select Save as Scene. Navigate to a suitable folder, name the scene and click the Save button. Repeat for each stored snapshot. 


       


      On your new XR12, perform the opposite procedure: Load each scene and save the snapshot. 


       


      Note that most, but not all, mixer settings are stored in snapshots and scenes. There are few global parameters like network settings and sample rate that must be set manually.

    What does the "main bus link" on and off do in the wing set up section? If it can link bus faders (or main faders) I cant see where or how it does so or an option to choose which ch faders to link....I'm hoping for an option in there similar to "M/C depends on Main L/R" on the X32. If it does something else, what is it- not enabled in the firmware?

      Hey Gary @GaryHiggins , I'm not exactly sure how that feature works (if it does work). In the meantime, you can get the same results of the M/C follows Main LR using a DCA. Just tag the FOH Main and the sub Main (or bus) with a DCA tag, then assign that DCA to a channel strip.

      @GaryHiggins , linking will link main2-4 to main1. Just like m/c on the x32. There is currently no way to select fewer members to link.

      @Roblof So does it work yet? The physical faders don’t link/move or is it virtual? I will be at the mixer later today

    X-Air12, Mixing Station Pro
    If I create a scene or snapshot to a new slot with a new name it overwrites the original scene/snapshot. Saving a new scene also overwrites the snapshot and vice-versa. This makes no sense so I assume I'm missing something.

      Hi Adrian @AdrianWirth ,


      In all the years I've used Mixing Station (since 2013) with either X32 or X-Air, I've never used it to save scenes/snapshots. I've always used the editor (X32-Edit or X-Air-Edit) to do scene management. Mixing Station works best as a mixing app.

    I record to the thumb drive and it plays back thru XR 16 LR Mains nice, clear, and loud but when I play the thumb drive thru my laptop the gain is very very low. All volume settings in laptop are full tilt. Any ideas? Ive tried diff thumb drive.

      Hi Sam, welcome to the community.


       


      Make sure that the USB recorder source is set to a pre-fader signal tap. This will give a higher recorded level than a post-fader tap if the fader is below 0dB. If the recorded level is still too low, you may need to raise the channel gains to give a better gain structure.


       


      Try setting the channel gains so that, during perforance, the input meters peak at between -18 and -12dBFS. Set the channel faders so that the Main LR mix output peaks at around -12 to -6dBFS with the Main LR fader at 0dB. Adjust your power amplifier gains so that you have the required live volume. You could lower the Main LR fader if necessary but don't raise it above 0dB. Recording from Main LR (pre-fader) should give a reasonable level for playback on a PC.

    Hi All, is there already a possibillity to connect a WING to a Dante Network ?

      That new "internal" Dante card has not yet been released, guessing it'll be quite some time for that to be on the market.


      It would be possible to use another X32 console with a Dante card right now though, and link it to the wing over AES50.  That's what I'm planning to do for a week long production that I have next month anyway.

    The question is kinda simple, but weird. Can I record a 2-track "summ" to USB stick AND 32 channels of multitrack recording into my DAW simultaneously with Behringer X32?

    Thanks everyone in advance!

      They just released an update to the iPad app, that should address this problem.
      Update your app, and try again.
      Problem turned up when iOS was updated to 13.

      The recent update had nothing to do with connectivity. It was to fix the crashes that occured when trying to use the channel controls on an iPad with IOS13.   Not finding the mixer is strange.  The way the app works is it sends out a broadcast /xinfo OSC command and waits for any mixers to reply.  Do you happen to be running IOS9 or IOS10 on your iPad?  There's been reported crashes with those after the latest fix although I don't know the details of those crashes.

      Running iOS 10.3.4 as soon as you try to connect or enter demo mode the app shuts down , only since the update

      When I tried to re-install the app under system 9, it is no longer suitable for my ipad. Guess I'm going shopping before the next gig.

      Wow. I'm stunned.  Their fix is to now require IOS 12 or later.

    Hey everyone,

    (Noob to audio, etc)

    I recently got the Behringer Q502USB and the Audio Technica AT2020 condenser mic. I plugged it all in and it all works, however, there are constant buzzing and static noises when listening to the audio both through the PC and the mixer phones. I have heard (obviously after I purchased it *sadface*) the mixer doesn’t have enough phantom power for this mic as it requires 48V. When I play around with the gain, level, and main mix knobs, the buzzing and static gets louder and quieter, depending on how high or low they are set to. The only way I could get the buzzing to almost disappear was through completely turning off the gain and having the level at just above the lowest. Would the phantom power be the problem here?

    Thanks

      Hello Lachlan, welcome to the community.


       


      I would not expect low phantom voltage to cause hum. That sounds more like a problem with the XLR cable from the mic to the mixer. Presumably the noise stops if you unplug the XLR cable from the mixer?


       


      Are you using a laptop or desktop PC? If it's a laptop, does it make any difference if you unplug the charger?

      Thanks for the quick response. Yes, if I do unplug the mic's XLR cable, it does stop the noises. I am using a desktop PC. I have also tried different power sockets

      @alphabravo676 


      There could be a fault in the XLR cable. It would be worth trying a different one. Hum can also result from the lack of a proper ground connection to the mixer. The mixer is not grounded through its power supply but relies on grounding through other equipment - e.g. active monitors connected to the Main Out connectors.

      Sadly I only just bought the XLR cable and I can't easily get another. When you say proper grounding, how can I do that?

      @alphabravo676 


      The easiest way to check if this is the problem is to connect the mixer to audio equipment that is grounded through its power cable. Active monitors with built-in power supplies usually work for this. If you don't have this type of equipment and the necessary cables, I don't know what else to suggest.


       


      Do you just need the microphone for recording/streaming? If so, and you still have the chance to return the AT2020 and Q502USB, you may be better served by an AT2020USB as this would connect directly to your PC.

      Hi @Switchs Screen Shot 2019-10-02 at 12.09.42 PM.pngPush the Bus 1 button shown in the picture. Raise the faders for the channels you want to send to the bus. Push Main LR when you're done and want to resume "normal" mixing.


      By default Bus 1 is routed to Aux out 1; this can be changed.

      Thanks for your reply, you‘re very kind.


      Howerver, I was refering to the „bus“ that is routed by default to the headphone jack in the front of the unit.


      I understand you can route any bus you want to the jack, but by default, what is being routed to that bus? How do I change the levels for this bus? Are they the same as the main levels?
