    I am trying to update my firmware to 4.0 on my X32 Rack and the USB reader will not show any files when I plug my USB sticks into it. I have a FAT32 formatted stick with the firmware on it. HELP?!

    Hello! I am trying to update my M32R LIVE! But every time I do it is saying something about the firmware's legacy "integrity". how do I fix this?

      Hello @eastfrequencies , welcome to the community.


       


      How are you trying the update the firmware? Are you doing it directly on the console? If so, the firmware file must be in the USB drive's root folder with no other firmware files present (although they can be in a second-level folder).

      Since version 4.0, if you load from a usb stick (with the mixer already on) you can have more than 1 firmware file in the root directory. Lets you pick and choose and change from old to new and back again if you want without a lot of fanfare...I would suggest downloading the firmware file again, expand the file and make sure you copy the correct file (the dcp_corefs part). The X32 uses the same firmware file so you can also try that version, it will work. These mixers are resilient so try again, your current file could have become corrupt somehow.

    Hey guys, I'm hoping you can help give me some guidance on setting this up. I want to setup two consoles, an x32 and Wing on our system for the purposes of having two separate mixes for the house and livestream. The Wing will be for the house mix and the x32 for the livestream mix. My goal is to have both consoles taking inputs from an s32 via aes network. I currently have the Wing setup already with the s32. I also have an s16 in cascade with the s32 to give me a couple extra outputs on my stage rack. I am not using any inputs on the s16 currently. To be clear, the Wing, s32, and s16 are already setup successfully and working great. It's the x32 that I now want to add to the system for a separate livestream mix.

     

    Both consoles will be in close proximity to each other at the FOH booth. I was thinking all I should need to do is to take an ethercon from AES B (wing) to AES A (x32). Will this work? Again, my goal is to be able to take the inputs from the s32 on both consoles to make two separate mixes. 

     

    My other question then, is, where can I route my livestream mix coming off the x32? Can I route a stereo output to the s16 where I have 4 outputs (21-24) physically open currently (the Wing has outputs routed to 1 thru 20)? Or since the x32 only supports 16 outputs, do I have to have my x32 (livestream mix) coming out of 1 thru 16 on the s32? I would like to route the outputs to the stage rack 1 thru 24 vs an auxiliary local output on the x32 because of closer proximity between our livestream equipment and the stage rack.

      Yes you can do all that.


      The livestream console can receive a total of 48 signals over a single AES50 connection from the Wing (though only 32 of those signals can be mapped to channels with full processing, and a further 6 signals mapped to the aux channels with limited processing.)


       


      You can then send the output from the livestream console back to the Wing, and the Wing can pass it back to the stagebox outputs.

      Thanks for the response. That's good to hear I'm at least on the right track. One question I have is related to how AES connections between consoles works. Will it be ok to connect AES B on the wing to AES A on the x32? The reason I ask is, the x32's AES B port might be broken.

      • May 26, 2020

      Yes, that will be fine.  It's the stageboxes where you have to worry about using the A\B sockets, as on some stageboxes the B socket is only meant for daisy-chainging other stageboxes, and on some stageboxes only the A socket can get signals to physical outputs.


       


      However with the consoles themselves the A\B sockets are essentially interchangable.  You just have to set your console's routing tables to look at the correct socket accordingly.

      I'm only really experienced routing on the Wing and haven't done much routing on the x32, so excuse my novice question, but it seems like what you're saying is: 


      I'll setup the routing on the x32 to look at the 32 inputs on AES A. And setup my 16 outputs to also go out on AES A. Then it's up to the routing on the Wing to take the x32's 16 outputs (coming in on AES B) and route those to any of the 24 outputs I have in my stage rack (s32+s16). Am I thinking right?

    Hello all.

    Question about M32 Edit (Windows).

    On the Sends tab of an input channel there is a 'power' symbol for each mix bus under the bus' name label.  By 'power' symbol I mean a blue circle with a vertical cross line at 12 o'clock.  The same symbol appears on the Sends tab of a mix bus once for each matrix bus.  What does this button do?

    Thx.  Dwayne A

      It's an on/off switch just like you described. A quick way to mute that send. It's especially useful for busses that are set up to be SubGroups since there are no faders for these. It's like the bus assign buttons on an analog console.

      • May 24, 2020

      As above.  It can quickly assign\unassign a channel from a bus (or a bus from a matrix.)


      It's especially useful for ensuring you don't send fx return channels back to the sends the created them, thus avoiding a feedback loop if you accidentally push faders up.  It's also good for ensuring that your click\cue tracks go only to IEM buses and not wedges.

    Hi All,

    I suspect there are some folks here using XR or MR series mixers as a sub mixer, or with the need to only connect one display device reliably.

     

    So FYI to whoever is interested: you can directly connect the XAir app on iPad via ethernet to XR12. The XR16 and XR18 should work the same way.  Here's how I do it:

    I use apple's USB3 camera connection kit with lightning power, and the tried and true MC704LL/a Apple USB2 to Ethernet adapter.

    The lightning power cord charges the ipad but does not power the Ethernet Adapter, so I need to use a USB2 Powered Hub with it's own power supply in between the Camera Connection Kit and the Ethernet adapter to get the Ethernet adapter powered properly.

    So, it's a mess of cables and devices, but it works like a charm. You may consider getting an extension lightning cable to run to your iPad, so all the junk (adaptors, power supplies, USB Hub, etc.) can go into a neat little box or zipper bag sitting near the XR (or in a rack drawer if the XR is racked).

    Here are Some additional notes on direct connection of iPad to XR:

     

    My iPad Ethernet connection is set to "Manual" as follows:  IP Address 192.168.1.2; Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0; Router 192.168.1.1

     

    In order to connect the iPad directly to XR without a router, you need to connect the iPad wirelessly via XR Access Point first, then flip the switch on the XR to Ethernet once connected by Access Point.  The XR will find the Ethenet connection automatically.  Once it does, you then switch to airplane mode on the iPad.

     

    You will now be good to go for your gig/session without wi-fi flakiness.  I often leave my mixer on all week, and the connection is there waiting for me when I return.  Even if you use the home button to exit or switch apps, the connection will remain in place.  

     

    However, once you "hard close" the XR app on the iPad (or if it aborts), you will need to take the ipad out of airplane mode, and flip the switch on the XR to "Access Point" in order to connect to the XR again.

     

    Also, the powered camera connection kit has a lightning connecter so you need a lightning equipped iPad for this setup to work.

    Hello all, I am new here. I have been using the x32 for a few years. Love the board and software. Recently, we have begun to live stream so I split our board. I copied channels 1-16 to 17-32 so I could mix a separate feed for streaming. I wanted complete control from the gain down. Is it possible to adjust these separately? Can I implement the HA gain split without an external mixer? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      Hello Jamie, welcome to the community.


       


      When you use an input on two or more channels, there can only be one setting for the preamp gain - shared by all the connected channels. If you enable the HA Gain Split option, the preamp gain must be set on the Setup -> Preamps tab but each channel has a separate +/- 18dB Trim control.


       


      In practice there is really only one correct setting for a preamp gain. If this is set correctly, the channel faders and send controls should be sufficient to control all mixes.

    Friends. I conducted serious negotiations on my issues with Berenger - and two months ago I managed to get a new firmware for the controller from them. - X-TOUCH Firmware Release 1.19 !!! THERE appeared coordinately NEW parameters ... But I’m not a programmer - then I will lower how to use these New functions ... I will post you a new firmware and ask that those people who will be able to understand programming for themselves - posted here Detailed instructions - how to program with these New Features ..

      I personally would not download your firmware file at all. Only versions which are released officially by Behringer will be used by me. Even if your version is no virus, malware or similar it would be too dangerous for me because itcomes froma unknown and therefor unsecure source.


      i hope that some representative of Behringer or this forum will react on your post in a suitable way.

      Again, I do not suppose that you are not a honest person. But I will wait until Behringer will release a new firmware version officially. I am responsible for my health and the health of my computers. So as I proceed with physical distancing to avoid Covid viruses I do the same with unknown sources like your zip to avoid harm of my computers. A strategy which was successful for me over the last 30 years or so. What others do is nothing I can control. So, thats the end of this story for me.

    Hi everyone

    I have a similar problem on my XR18 as this post back in 2015 https://community.musictribe.com/t5/Recording/XR18-Input-8-16-probably-broken-over-sensitive-distorting/td-p/231420

    I have an Axe FX3 plugged in stereo linked on channels 3 & 4 and all of a sudden channel 4 is showing more about 15db more gain than channel 3? I didn't even remove the connections.

    If I change to another stereo pair the gains are the same on the both channels.

    Has anyone else had a similar problem?

    I have tried the hard reset with a paper clip, no luck there...

    Cheers, Paul

      @PaulJohnsson 


      If the difference in gains is showing on the input meters and the preamp gains are definitely linked, it would seem to be a hardware problem. 


       


      I suggest that you raise a Care ticket for Service Repair explaining your problem. This is done by clicking on Support at the top of the page and then clicking the Create a Care Ticket button. This is only possible if you have completed all the required fields in your profile. Make sure that you fill-in every required field on the Care form.

    Does anyone have an inside track on when we can expect MIDI and/or OSC implementation info from Behringer?  I used to perform a lot of external control over my X32 and I've really been missing that with the Wing.

      Hey Mike @MikeDrennan ,


      They are working on it, but no ETA yet. Both Midi and OSC will be secondary protocols and the native protocol is very complex. It is going to be quite an undertaking requiring a lot of testing (already started).

      @Brunoc94 


      Are you connecting the iPad output to the mixer 2-Track inputs through a splitter cable like this? The 2-Track input may not be the best for this as it has no gain control and cannot be added to the Main mix if you want to record through USB. It may be better to use one of the stereo channels with this type of splitter cable.


       


      What type of headphones are you using to listen to the mixer? If they have a four-pole TRRS plug you will need to use an adapter like this one between the headphones and the 3.5mm/6.35mm TRS adapter.
