Hey guys, I’m having some trouble figuring out how to run the setup that I want to run and thought I would see if anyone has suggestions or tips.
I have the focusrite that works great. The problem is that when I plug in the USB 2. There’s also an ethernet port for remote control on the X32, but I think that it is for hooking up a router to be able to control the X32 with your iPad.
I haven’t been able to set it up yet where my X32 will control my logic pro X sessions as in moving the faders on my tracks and so forth.
Any suggestions, tips? Thanks so much in advance. My Studio. Add control surface as Mackie Control and set input port and output port to port 1. When you do this, then each track will come thru the faders on the left hand side of the X By pushing the buttons on the board that move you thru blocks of 8 incoming signals, you can hear them all.
When you’ve got this going then you just have to push the “select” button for any given channel, and can adjust panning, FX, etc. I haven’t done a mixdown from the board yet, but I believe you need to do the following: Go to “routing” then “aux out” and choose which aux you want, e.
In the last column in this screen you have, amongst others, the choice to choose post-fader. Now run cables from the aux channels you’ve chosen on the back of the X32 to your recording device. Nov 15, AM. I was wrong about changing the routing. You need to play with the settings in “routing”in the “home” section” and the “card out” section and you can monitor while you record and then get playback. When you see what I’ve written let me know, and I’ll be more explicit.

However some problems: 1 Do I always need to change the routing local to card on the X32 to hear what I’ve just recorded and not what is going on in the live room?
I hope someone is able to understand what I’m going on about here! I am very confused and would really appreciate someone taking the time to help me. Look forward to hearing from someone! More Less.

Thanks for that – any ideas why when I try to update the App store only gives me the option to ‘open’ Logic, not update – suggesting my version IS up to date, even though it’s only at It was because I needed Catalina updating first to However, it still drops out Feb 2, PM. Hi again. Yes I have plugins, and it’s both audio and midi – but that’s not really the point: the same project works fine on my 8 year old imac.
Feb 3, AM. OK, so I noticed there was no dropout if I don’t fire up my audio interface software and just use the iMac soundcard, so obviously a problem between the OS and the audio interface app. Updated the app – Behringer XEdit – but still drops out.
Might have to check out their forum If I make sure the audio interface is switched OFF when I start up Logic, then switch it on after my project has loaded, everything works fine – no dropout. Feb 4, AM. Community Get Support. No processing except Low Cut if available. For instance muting Mixbus 1 will mute the output to Output 1.
Pre Fader — Send is before the fader but after all of the channel processing. In this example the fader would not change the signal being sent to the output.
Post Fader — This send is after the fader and is effected by everything before it including the fader. This tab is where a delay can be set for the different outputs.
The green button shows that the delay is active. The delay bar is dragged upwards to set the delay time. This is where the physical Aux Outputs on the back of the console are routed. Below they are set as inserts that would be used to place an external insert effect into the insert point in a channel or bus on the console.
This has many different uses, but essentially gives 16 sends that are separate from the 16 output sends configured previously. This is not the same as having additional buses, but sends can be made off of the same Mixbus at a different Tap Point, or totally different sources, like Direct Outputs.
In the example below, P16 are direct outs from channels This is one way to set up the Behringer P16 Personal Mixer so a musician onstage could adjust their own mix from the direct outs. They are set as Pre Fader to have all of the channel processing, but Post EQ may be another good choice depending on the channel, or possibly a mix of the two on a channel by channel basis.
Depending on te setup and how many channels are needed to feed the P16 system, it may be necessary to create subgroups and feed those subgroups to the P16 system to free up P16 Sends.
That is more in depth and can be covered in another article. In the below example P16 channels are being used for a different purpose- feeding Turbosound Speakers over Ultranet. There will be a more in depth article on this in the future as well but I wanted to include a quick overview. See the next tab for Turbosound iQ Setup. Ultranet can send signal to Turbosound Speakers equipped with Ultranet ports.
Turbosound also has a line called the iQ Series , which not only can use Ultranet for signal, but have built in speaker modeling and presets that can be configured directly on the speaker or through the X32 itself. The example below corresponds to the previous tab where the Ultranet Sources were set. For the iQ Setup we are just looking at P16 Channel On the right side of the screen you can change the settings for the individual P16 Channel including entering it into a Speaker Group which allows you to link the settings of all of the speakers in the group which is helpful for quickly setting them up or switching through presets on multiple speakers at once , Selecting Which iQ Speaker is being used, Selecting an EQ Preset, and finally Selecting A Speaker Model.
It is not necessary to set these setting to send signal over Ultranet, only an added feature that can be used. The last two tabs are a major addition to Firmware version 4. The User In tab allows any source to be patched individually into a chosen slot in one of the User Input Banks. The user input banks are still grouped in channels of eight, but instead of being limited to a source block of 8 channels, it is now possible to place any source into the user bank of 8 inputs.
You can load or save scenes or presets from your computer or your USB drive. These options are found on the right hand side. Likewise, the Save button gives you the option to save as a scene, which saves the whole scene you currently have to a file, or to save a preset, which in this case is the selected channel including the parameters that are checked. If you setup your USB drive like in the previous article you will have folders to organize everything. This is how you can easily prep a show file from home or the office without needing to have a console in front of you.
It also makes it easy to have an archive of previous show files and presets on your computer to either open and modify for an upcoming show, or in the case of the presets to use to build a new show or import portions of a previous scene into a new scene.
It is also possible to create presets of effects from you effect banks. This can be handy when you spend time dialing in a reverb just how you like it.
You can then save the reverb and recall it in the future. Another example would be tuning a floor monitor with a graphic eq. You can save that file and load it the next time you are going to be using that same setup. To get to the effects you select the bank that you want to work on, either FX or FX This will bring up the bank of 4 effects and you can select the type of effect from the dropdown menu red arrow , as well as the routing from the routing drop down menu green arrow. You can also have the effect bypassed or active blue arrow.
Having the circle lit up is active, dark is bypassed. Banks can either be routed to a bus or routed as an insert. If you want to insert them you will have to go to the configuration page that corresponds to the source you want the effected routed from and back to.
Banks will include by default in their routing menu all of the places they can be routed, i. The X32 has customizable scribble strips and I recommend getting into the habit of setting them up because when it comes time to mix on a wireless device you will be able to tell what channel is what.
Also when you load the scene down the road when you have the same band or a similar show or setup you will know what the channels all correspond to. It is much faster to set these up on the computer before you are onsite, even if you have to change a few things around later.
This is one area that is much faster to setup on the X32 Edit App. To set or change the scribble strip in X32 Edit, right click on the channel name. It will bring up the following window.
Here you can type what the scribble strip says, select a pre-entered name from the drop down menu, and select the color of the channel. This would correspond to the fader position on the board. To the direct right of the sends on fader buttons we see the Master fader overview. When you select one of the buses to be sends on fader, this master fader will become the master fader of the corresponding bus and the channel faders will be outlined in the color assigned to that bus.
The first tab is the Connection Tab and it shows any mixers that you are currently connected to. This requires a Cat5 connection to the Remote port of the console to either your computer or router that your computer is connected to.
See below for an example showing a connection to an X32 Compact. You must choose to connect to the mixer. You can also choose to synchronize from this page and that can be either:. The Mixer Tab shows the general configuration of the mixer itself that can be done from the mixer as well.
From here you can Initialize the mixer or X32 Edit app. This is helpful if you are using the X32 Edit program as a display for the settings on the mixer. It allows you to mix on the console and select a channel or screen and see it on a computer monitor where it would be easier to see. This can be helpful if you have the time and space to set it up. This shows the Bus names when selected instead of just the Bus Numbers. See the two pictures below showing the box checked and unchecked.
This is only shown when the X32 Edit app is connected to a mixer and there is an expansion card in the mixer. Remember after you make any changes to have to save the file again.
This will either write over the existing file or create a new file depending on how you name it, but you have to actually save a file for any changes that you make. The X32 Edit app will open up wherever you left off, however whatever you have when you save the file is what you will have when you load it onto a console. See the below article about how to setup a USB flash drive for use with the X32 and how to organize your files to move back and forth from X32 Edit and the X32 Mixers.
Could you go into the differences between scenes and shows? Thanks for your question. I am happy to go into more detail on that and then I will include it in the article when I get a chance to update it. Fader levels, EQ settings, Routing, etc.
It is like a picture of all of the current settings on the mixer. Snippets — A smaller group of mixer settings than the Scene File that can include as much or as little of the scene as you want. For instance, you can recall fader levels and mutes on some channels and not others. Is the X32 online with a mixer or offline? Behringer has updated their website and I have not updated this article to show that yet.
All of the files are still there for download. I will update the article above to show where to download it, but on the right side of the website there is a dropdown menu for software and you just need to scroll down to find the version for your computer.
Thanks — I must not be looking or searching in the right spot, but I have looked for the x32 edit Mac 4. Is it possible to access sends on faders on the X32 Edit the same way it accessed on the X32 console?
If yes how can it be done? Yes it is possible. I covered it in the section about sends on fader mode. You could also solo the individual buses from the bus fader later or user assigned fader layer if buses have been assigned to it on the far bottom left of the X32 Edit window.
This is an easy way to check the buses without going in and out of sends on fader mode. Question Somehow in messing around I have moved ch 4 over to another channel area how do I deleate this channel This goes back to my first question as it is not on but on DCA…. I would just move it back to where it came from to keep from making everything more confusing than it needs to be. I use that when I solo the livestream mix, since the livestream mix is a lot hotter than the FOH mix.
Do you mind if I ask how you are feeding the house mix and livestream mix? Are both feeds on matrices? Thank you for helping. Do you have any information on controlling x32 edit with an X Touch? Most deal with connecting directly to the X32 via Ethernet. Are you trying to control x32 edit with the X-Touch but without a mixer at all?
Have you tried the X-Touch over midi or just ethernet? This may be a good question for the Music Group forum since there may be someone over there that knows more about it. If you do get it figured out and want to help with a short write up about it I would be happy to put that up here or link to it somewhere else. You sir. You are a god send. I also found that by directly connecting the extender to the pc I can have the xtouch still control the x32 via network and have both.
Chris, this is by far the most in-depth, easiest and thought out explanation of the X32 Edit program I have ever read. Again, very well done! Thank you for the kind words and sharing the article. Let me know if there is anything not covered that your group would like to see or has questions about. Chris, Is there a PDF version of this, or can you create one?
I tried printing it and also making a PDF but it only wants to do the first page. I have not created a PDF of the guide but I can look into creating it and adding it to the downloads section. If you subscribe to the newsletter I can send out a notification when I have something. Thank you! This will be a good resource to have for training our worship tech team. My church uses an X32 for our audio needs and I am the primary operator of the console. It has been suggested that we use this software to make running the console a little easier.
From what I read in the article that appears to be the case. Thanks for a job well done. Another commenter requested a pdf of this article and I second that. It would be most useful for training other sound technicians. I have checked the box to sign up for the newsletter.
Thanks again for a great article. X32 Edit is a great program for X32 operators. I save show files and presets on a USB stick and build show files for upcoming shows while having a cup of coffee in the morning. When I get to the venue I can load everything from my USB stick onto the mixer and save a lot of setup time. Basically, if I wanted, could I move multiple faders at the same time?
A couple more questions, Can you PFL from the machine x32 edit is running on or do you still have to go to the rack unit? If so, how? The X32 Edit app does not process or bus or even monitor audio, it is just for remote control of the mixer.
If you are wanting to solo over the headphones you can just use the headphone bus on the mixer. If you are wanting to solo to a monitor you can use the monitor output on the mixer or you can assign the monitor bus to an output of your choice. X32 Edit is multi-tactile as long as your device is, but you may want to look into one of the tablet specific apps depending on your end use.
I highly recommend the MixingStation App and can do a review of it if anyone is interested. I just tested it with a Microsoft Surface Pro, and you can move several faders at the same time using different fingers from both hands.
I am teaching a class and am using the x32 edit latest version to have students set up a show on their computer and then save the file for submission to me. How do they save the file? They do not have access to a console due to the pandemic, their work is being done one their laptops. I need to know how to instruct them to save the file. Please advsie. You would have them save a. You do not need a mixer to create, open, edit, or save. As soon as I connect to the console via WIFI and disconnect, the next time I try to run the app nothing happens and the app wont load.
The only way I can get it to work again is to reset the laptop. I use the laptop on Sunday mornings at church to mix a feed for our live stream. Is anyone else out there experiencing this?
Just grasping a straws trying to figure this out. Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated…. Why are you connecting it to wifi and then disconnecting it? Is it possible to run a wired connection or do you need it to be wireless? Is the wireless network dedicated to the mixer?
When you say you need to reset the laptop are you talking about rebooting it or something else? The board is connected to our local wifi network via Ethernet. I connect my laptop with the x32 edit app installed to the network via wifi. I could try an Ethernet cable but wifi allows a little more freedom to listen in different spots in the sanctuary and adjust the mix. When I connect and sync the laptop to the mixer for the first time after resetting the laptop it works with no issues.
This is the only way I have been able to get it to work…. I have never heard of this problem before but it does sound like a software problem. It may be a Windows 10 issue. I would recommend contacting Music Group directly, it could be a bug in the software.
I would also try the Music Group forum to see if anyone over there has had the same problem. I also highly recommend a tablet or phone running the Mixing Station app from dev-core if you are wanting to move around while you mix.
Thanks for the advise. I will contact Music Group directly and see what they have to say. To try and resolve the issue, navigate to your system directory to the following location:.
