    Hey All! I wanted to quickly ask if there was any idea when a firmware 4.0 compatible X32 iPad App would be released I don't want to update my X32 Rack until this is done since the only way I control it is through my iPad...

    Thanks in advance!

      I haven't seen any ETA for a V4.0 version of the standard iPad X32 app. The latest version of Mixing Station for iOS supports V4.0 though.

      Hi FrancoFreda,


      We are currently working on an update for the X32Edit Ipad app, but it will take quite some time ...
      The actual app still works with the 4.00 firmware, but lacks the added features like User Slot assignments
      You can still access those features using the x32 rack's screen
      Dont forget to backup all your data before updating, and take notes of your settings (ip adress, preferences) as those will be reset

      Best regards

      It depends on your definition of compatible. I've been using the old version with 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 since they were released. Mixing works great. Routing doesn't. When I'm playing and mixing (at the same time), it's my go to app. That being said, Mixing Station is completely compatible and always up-to-date. It's well worth a few dollars.

    Hello,

    I'm just back from the 36th chaos communication congress, where we had the Behringer Wing with firmware version 1.01 in use for the chaos-west stage.

    This was some type of "corporate event" from a technical perspective. The desk was running non-stop for about 10 days, with 3 different operators in shifts. We have been using a Midas DL32 as a stagebox and a KT DN-9650 as a Dante bridge with a few Dante devices at FOH, mainly for the broadcast setup.

    My overall first impression: You did an amazing job with this console. I'm just blown away. I will place my order next week for my own, private console.

    Some thoughts while using, which stood out and I would love if you can improve on those:

    1. The console did suddenly reboot/crash once at the event. This reboot lasted ~5 seconds and audio was interrupted in the meantime. After the reboot I lost about 30 seconds of recent changes to channels, etc. This is wonderful. Crashes should never happen, but this is really a good recovery time. Good job.
    2. There seems to be a bug with the mute group labeling. When I change the name of a mute group, this is not reflected in the display section above the encoder wheel until I press one of the mute buttons there. Not a big issue at all.
    3. If I work with a stereo source, I need to be able to flip the polarity on a single channel. We had a DJ set playing at night, where somewhere in the DJ setup there was a polarity flip. As we worked with a stereo source, we could not easily fix this without interrupting signal. I went ahead and duplicated the signal via dante to two new inputs, and ran the DJ set using two new mono sources and switched over while they did a buildup/drop. This was very stressful.
    4. The reset button for channelstrip sections is way too hidden. As far as I could see this works via the utility menu, which I only noticed on day 4 or so.
    5. Copying channels works fine, took me just a few seconds to understand the concept. I would love to be able to select multiple channels as a target.
    6. The distinction between 8 premium-fx/standard-fx and 8 standard-fx was a bit unclear in the fx overview. maybe that can be highlighted a bit more.
    7. Routing a regular FX bus is pretty confusing. As this was more of a corporate event it was not a deal-breaker and i did not spend much time on it, but I could not immediately see how I can do that.
      1. If I should just use one of the busses, the inability to send the output of one bus to another bus is a deal-breaker in that regard (i.e. send some reverb to the singers monitor).
      2. I saw a few FX returns in the routing menu, but could not figure out where they came from.
    8. The faders are slow. Very slow.
    9. I heavily missed a view of the fader level on the displays above a fader. I know that Yamaha desks do this. This is super helpful when re-setting a level.
    10. The band solo function is super helpful.
    11. The RTA overlay on stereo sources seem to display a mono sum. I would love to be able to switch to a "double" overlay, one for each channel with some offset. Not sure if this was possible, didn't look for it actively. This would have helped to debug the flipped polarity problem I mentioned earlier.
    12. The custom knob/button area is not powerful enough. I could not see how to place the delay time tap button there for example.

    This is just a list of quite negative things - please regard every feature not listed here as great/amazing. The desk is really wonderful and I love it. Of course we are still somewhat "beta-testing" this, as version 1.01 is pretty early, but I'm looking forward to some improvements to the areas I listed.

      Hi Jan, for me it´s the same, it´s a bit confusing/not well thought out........


      Solution would be to think about the AUX Channels as FX returns, starting from there You have 2 options:


      1. You can use the FX Plugin in the bus, then route its  output to the input of an AUX channel


      2. You just use the bus output routed to the AUX channel and use its Plugin slot for the effect.


      The difference in the first case would be, that you could use the same FX for mixing to the PA by routing them also to the Master, while you could use the AUX input eq + faders as POST monitor sound + level controls, which sometimes makes handling the Artist much easier ........


       


      One question concerning the self-forced reboot:


      Did this occur while you worked in the FX racks? 


      Maybe this would be helpful for the guys, as i also experienced a reboot, which is not exactly funny during a show.


      Still i find the boot time amazing, i measured 13 secs from power on.


      This is even fastet than yamaha, an the console seems to sound better than some if its competitors that cost a tenfold sum..........

      They are working on it. Before 1.01 firmware, the USB stick did not even have the preset/snapshot save/load feature. Please understand that the developers have been given a much needed break between Christmas and New Years. Robert, Patrick and I will be reporting everything we read here to the developers.

    Hello all! New to Xair18, and new to MusicTribe. When I engage the phantom power on one channel, it engages it for all channels (using android app). Is that a global phantom power button, and if so, is it safe to have on with regular mics/wireless mics, etc? Or is there a setting somewhere to disengage global setting?

      Hi Thomas, welcome to the forum.


       


      This is not normal behavior. The 48V Phantom supply is switched individually for each channel. I am not aware of any option to cause global phantom switching.


       


      Are you actually connected to the XR18? There are some settinngs in certain apps that don't work correctly when offline. If the problem persists when connected to the mixer, I recommend that you try Mixing Station XAir (Android or iOS) which definitely doesn't show this problem.

    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.

    People sometimes ask how they can control their XAir or X32 mixers using a footswitch. Usually they just want to switch FX on/off or perhaps load a Snapshot/Snippet. These simple actions can be achieved over Midi and enquirers are directed to threads that explain how to build suitable footswitches. That's fine for DIY electronics enthusiasts but sometimes people want an off-the-shelf solution. I decided to test some of the ready-made products.

    I only investigated products that were capable of sending Midi Control Change messages to toggle mutes or mute groups. This excluded many small Midi footswitches that can only send Program Change messages. I also excluded devices that did not have built-in DIN Midi outputs. Products designed for USB Midi could be used with USB/DIN Midi converters but that adds another box so it isn't an ideal solution.

     

    One option is the Midi Solutions Footswitch Controller. This is available in single, dual or eight-switch versions. All versions can be powered by the Midi output from an XAir or X32 mixer. The units can be programmed to send various Midi messages in response to inputs from simple momentary or latching footswitches. Programming is done with free software but does require the use of a USB/Midi interface or cable.

    These controllers support a wide range of Midi messages. The most useful, for use with XAir/X32 mixers, are Control Change messages for toggling mute groups. The controllers can also send two different System Exclusive messages when a footswitch is toggled. This can be used to send XOSC commands to load Snapshots or Snippets for more complex switching requirements.

    The single switch version works well for toggling one mute group - to disable FX sends while talking - or to switch between two Snapshots/Snippets. The larger models could be used for more complex switching.

     

    The MeloAudio MIDI Commander is a much more comprehensive footswitch. Although primarily designed to control guitar processors, it provides two custom layers that can be programmed to generate Control Change and Program Change Midi messages in response to the various switches. This is a very well-constructed device that can be powered by two disposable or rechargeable AAA batteries or with a USB power supply. Programming is performed using the footswitches and OLED display.

    The MIDI Commander can be used to control some XAIR/X32 functions but there are restrictions.
    Each custom layer uses the same Midi channel for all the switches and optional expression pedal. Using Midi channel 2, this allows mute groups to be operated with Control Change messages and it can load X32 Snippets with Program Change but the expression input is not usable. It would not be able to load XAir Snapshots on the same layer as mute groups.

    When a switch is set to generate Control Change messages with a toggle, the on action sends value 127 and off sends 0. The nearby LED indicates when the switch is on. This can be confusing when used with an X32 - when switching a channel/bus mute, the LED indicates that the channel/bus is muted but when switching a mute group, the LED indicates that the group is unmuted.

    When a switch is set to send a Program Change, the program number is determined by the bank switching so is not freely assignable. Sending a Program Change turns off the LEDs on Control Change switches so, although the actual mutes don't change, the footswitch no longer displays the current status.

    There is no provision for setting the starting state of the switches. After switch-on, it is necessary to click any Control Change switches one or twice to synchronize the mixer and footswitch.

    These restrictions reduce the functionality of the MIDI Commander as a controller for XAir/X32 mixers. It works well enough for controlling mutes and mute groups but the other functions are not really usable.

     

    The Source Audio Soleman is a highly configurable footswitch. It only has four switches but their actions are individually programmable with a wide range of options. Up to 64 named panel layouts can be programmed. On each panel, the LCD displays the panel name and the user-defined three-character name of each switch. Panels can be selected by pressing two of the switches simultaneously - or with an optional external footswitch. The Soleman includes an input for an expression pedal and can be calibrated to suit most pedals. The unit can be powered with the included 9V power supply or via the USB port. I power mine with a USB power-bank so I don't need to run a mains cable. Programming is done over USB using the free editor software.

    The actions of each of the four switches in a panel can be programmed with few restrictions. Each switch has a name, a default state, a latched/momentary/radio-button mode, an on action and an off action. The actions can be one of the commonly-used Midi messages on any channel and with any data values. Actions can also trigger macros - sequences of Midi messages. This is a very powerful feature that can be used to achieve complex switching. Macros can include System Exclusive messages so support XOSC commands. A simple example is to use macros so that a switch mutes one group and unmutes another - and the reverse when toggled. As the on and off actions are programmed individually, the meaning of the status LED can be set as required.

    The Midi channel and controller for the expression pedal can be programmed for each panel layout. It is possible to set minimum and maximum controller values so an expression pedal could be used, for example, to operate a channel/bus fader between, say, -30dB and 0dB for gentle level control.

    Setup macros can be defined for each panel layout. These will be run when the unit is turned on or a different panel is selected. These macros can be used to synchronize the mixer and footswitch so that the status LEDs reflect the actual mixer state.

    The Soleman includes support for Midi Tap Tempo but not, unfortunately, in a way that works with XAir/X32. On these mixers, setting tempo over Midi requires calculating the delay time, constructing an OSC command to set the appropriate time parameter for the required FX slot, encoding the command as an XOSC hex string and sending it as a System Exclusive Midi message. This is so specialized that it is unlikely to be supported by any general-purpose Midi footswitch.

    The Soleman is not a low-cost Midi footswitch but it has the flexibility to provide good control of XAir/X32 mixers over Midi in a small, well-constructed package. The only way to get better control would be to build one of the DIY designs that use OSC commands over a network connection.

      Hey Rex @RexBeckett,


      Very good and comprehensive summary of commercial solutions to the age old question of midi footpedal control of the X-Air/M-Air and X32/M32 consoles. Thanks so much for doing all that research and taking the time to provide this summary. Wish we could sticky it like we could in the old forum.

      No you would not need to change the option card. The Midi Solutions controller connects to the DIN Midi sockets on the console. It needs to connect to both as it gets power from the console's Midi Out.

      Actually I plan to purchase  MIDI solutions  F8 to control M32C but I want to ensure that I can mute/unmute by sending CC message from a toggle switch.
      Are there any considerations that I have to take care of it 

      I will assign
      -a switch to mute/unmute BUS 


      -a switch or more to mute/unmute Chanel


      -a switch or more to mute/unmute "mute group" or "DCA group'
      Is this device capable to do that?

      Yes that should all be possible with the F8. All the mutes are simple Control Change messages. You can program the unit (with the free, downloadable tool) to be triggered by mometary or latching switches.

    Hi All, i played around with my new Wing and found some inconsistencies/bugs in the firmware:

    1>  S.O.F. DOESNT WORK ON LEFT FADER BANK

    2>  SELF-FORCED COMPLTETE REBOOT AFTER 1 HOUR EDITING AND JUGGLING AROUND PLUGINS IN THE STANDARD RACK

    3> TALKBACK DIM SEEMS TO AFFECT ALSO TB MIC LOUDNESS IN BUSSES. NOT WELL THOUGHT OUT HERE ….. ?

    Could somebody verify, so i can turn it over to the software guys

    I also have a few (maybe stupid) questions:

    > Automation safes/scope: there ist no distinction between prefader (monitor) busses and other busses which you might well automate for shows while still doing in Ear mixes from the same console.

    > Gain structure: Subgroups can get very hot if more than 2 channels are feeding into them close to 0 DbFs, forcing me to take down faders to - 10 or even more. Does TRIM fix this gain staging problem without affecting signal integrity?

    > Multiband compression/dynamic eq as well as some "autotune" have been mentioned to be onboard as plugins, will this be soon available?

    Otherwise really great console for small clubs, tested so far with midas DL 32 I/O boxes, unbelievable sound quality at this price point, kudos to behringer !!!!

      hey, small question. do you notice any difference of sound quality? on paper the sound quality of the wing is better than the x32 ... and even slightly than the m32. But if you re using a dl16/dl32 ... the whole path ( adda, preamps, thd, ... ) stays the same. I m kind of lost because the wing has no stageboxes with the same quality

    I recently bought a condenser mic and a Behringer Xenyx Q502 USB mixer. No matter what I try, I can't get anything from my mic besides static. I'm pretty sure I have it all setup to my PC correctly. I even took the equipment back to the store and they tested it all out so they work fine on their own. I tried everything that I can with the drivers on Windows 10 as well but nothing seems to be working. The only thing that is working correctly is that I can get audio from my PC through the usb to the headphones.

      Hi Mariah ( @Mer_lin ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  A condensor mic requires phantom power.  Do you have the mic plugged into an XLR jack and do you have 48V phantom power turned on?   What make/model of mic is it?  


       


      Also, under Settings, Privacy, Microphone, make sure you have 'Allow access to the microphone' turned on. 


       


      Hope this helps,

      I do have the mic plugged into the XLR jack and the button is on for the phantom power. I have an AKG P120 microphone and the settings to allow the microphone is on as well.

      OK. Where do you have the mic gain set to for Input 1?  I'd set it to about 12 o'clock. If you turn up the level on Channel 1 as well as the PHONES level, can you hear the mic in the headphones?   We need to determine if the problem is on the mixer side or the PC side.

      I kept the gain at about 12 o' clock and turned the level up for the headphones but I don't hear anything, just more static as I turned the volume up.

    Alright. I've got a doozy here. First time attempting to use an S32. Here is the scenario:

    I have an X32 compact connected to an S32 stage box and cannot get input signal from any of the 32 input channels.

    - Both X32C & S32 have latest firmware (3.11 & 1.7 respectively)
    - Connections light up green when connected to either AES50A or AES50B via good cat5e ethercon cable (verified working on another X32C and S16 setup)
    - Verified Mic/Cable for input source work fine with X32C internal I/O
    - Routing is configured for channels 1-32 coming from AES50A 1-8, 9-16, 17-24, 25-32
    - No input with HA split enabled or disabled (pretty sure this doesn't matter in this scenario)
    - Outputs seem to work fine
    - X32C has been initialized to default settings with same results

    Am I missing something here? Is there some setting that needs to be applied that I've missed via the tutorials / instructions I've found with web searches? It seems like this should just work with the input routing settings I have applied.

    We're running an outside stage this weekend and it'd be really nice to not have to run the far to heavy analog snake.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hi @NickBrewer,


       


      Your input routing sounds OK. Are you using the AES50-A connector on the S32? Does it make any difference if you raise the head-amp gains using the controls on the Setup -> Preamps page (on blocks AES50 A1-A8 etc)?


       


      While your Ethercon cable works with other hardware, it would be sensible to try a different one if possible. It is important that there is an end-to-end ground connection between the Ethercon shells.

      Have to ask, the mute all button isn’t depressed is it? So you are connected X32 A port to S32 A port, X32 set for int sync? Inputs 1-32 in groups of 8 are aes50a 1-8, 9-16, 17-24 and 25-32? Gains up? If so and that cable is good. I would next guess the unit is defective. Might be worth reflashing the firmware to an older one if that’s even available, or try doing 1.7 again.

      - Negative on the Mute-All button. It is not enabled.
      - Yes, AES50A connect to AES50A on both devices
      - X32C is set for internal sync
      - Inputs are routed from the S32 in the routing tab as stated in my original post
      - Gain does nothing to create any kind of input signal
      - I had the issue with both firmware 1.6 (which it came with) and after upgrading to 1.7 - I can always try going lower than 1.5? Really thinking that's not the issue.

      I forgot to mention: I know the input routing it set properly because when I enable 48v on any given input channel it lights up the indicator light on the correct physical channel on the S32.

      Hi all. Forgot to post an update. We ordered a replacement S32 and it worked instantly. It was definitely a bad unit. 


      I felt like I was going crazy. I'm probably still crazy, just not in this case! )


      Thank you all for the suggestions.

    I have a x32 compact I need to personalize the banks by choosing what to do on each fader by saving the scenes without ever touching the settings like gain and send. it's possible?

      Hello Samuel, welcome to the community.


       


      I'm not sure I quite understand what you want to achieve. You can save parts of a channel settings as a preset. When this is recalled, only the saved parts overwrite the existing settings. You can also recall (load) scenes and limit the settings that are overwritten using Scene Safes. Each saved scene can have its own set of Scene Safes. The X32 also supports partial scenes - Snippets - which can contain only those settings that you want changed. 


       


      If this is not what you want to do, please explain a little more.

      Hi @SamuelLaurenti 


      If you are meaning that you want the channel sends and sources to stay with the rest of the channel settings when you move them around, there is only one way that I know of to do that. 


      * Export your scene to a file


      * Load that scene file into X32 Scene Parser


      * Select the Surface Input filters (eg. Ch 1-8, 9-16, etc.)


      * Click on the Ch Arranger button (in the middle, bottom). This will bring you to the Channel Arranger screen.


      * Rearrange the channels to your needs by dragging them left or right.


      * Adjust the range of the channels you want changed (First Chan, Last Chan)


      * Select the Include Ch Source


      * Click on the Transfer button. This will parse out the required OSC commands and change the channel designations and place the results in the Results editor. 


      * Examine the resulting OSC commands and tweak it if needed.


      * When it is as desired, choose the destination and then click on the Output button. This will create a snippet that can be imported into the console or the X32-Edit and will only change those channels in the snippet.

      in practice I need to have a master scene with all the microphones and levels, then changing the scene I need to have the channels used in that scene on the first desk in order to have the second desk free for aux and effects

      By "desk" are you referring to the channel bank layers?

    Hello,
    yesterday I got my WING. 
    So far, I think the console is very awesome.
    But there are two things, I can't solve:

    1. How can I lock the console? I've already press all menu-buttons like at the X32, but it doesn't work.

    2. Is it possible to get the 31 GEQ on the faders (like X32)?

    Does anybody know these both functions?

    For your interest: I put my X-Dante Brooklyn II modul into the slot inside the console, and it works. But you have online 32x32 channels. I think I've to flash another firmware on the modul. I'll keep you informed.

     

    Greetings
    Bastian

      Did you try the firmware updater in Dante controller ?

      Hi @btsipsheim 


      The Wing currently does not have a console lock (like on the X32). But it does provide locks on the various configuration screens (channel strips, routing, etc.)


       


      Neither the Wing or the X32 has 31 band graphics EQ on the channel strips. But you can insert them from the FX slots.

      @Paul_Vannatto I think he means geq-on-faders, ie using the faders themselves to adjust the geq bands.  On the x32, you could do it, and when the faders were in the middle of the fader track they represented 0dB (no boost or cut.)  You could move them up and down, or press the mute button above the fader to 0 it.  The scribble strip would show what band the fader was adjusting.  It only worked for the 8 DCA faders.

      @CraigFowler: Thank you, that was, what I mean. OK, maybe the function comes with an firmware update in future.


      @DerickDeruyck I haven't. Do you have any experience with that? Will it work as 64x64 after updating?

      @btsipsheim 


      I don't have a Wing, so i don't know, but the only way to have the latest firmware on a Brooklyn II is via Dante controller (tap on devices, and you will find the updater), but, all Brooklyn II cards are 64 X64 (on 44.1 - 48 Khz), so i think its on the wing's side (perhaps in a future wing upgrade)
