Do the XR mixers pull the main faders down when you first turn on the mixer or load a new show? The X32 does and it's a very good idea. cheers

It actually had a digital feedback loop when I first powered it up - ouch my poor ears, had the headphones on. I did a reset in the setup menu and all was well.

Dunno yet what it does when you turn it off then on or load a scene/show/whatever-they-call-it.

Always the optimist LOL. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Maybe for a nube the DL is easier to get your head around but anybody who's run a pro digital mixer shouldn't have a problem with the X-Air.

Mine just arrived  :) . All's well so far. Did the usual paperclip routine to set to factory specs in case some QC dude left it in a hurry. Date code is 0415 that almost 10 months on someones shelf (Slow boat, Starin & Sweetwater). V1.09 Firmware just updated. Slated for weekend gig.  :facepalm: Backup XR18 of course. 100% battery operated system.

My present amp rack has two IPR1600's and an NU3000 in it. I'm going to pull the two IPR1600's and put in the XR12 and an NU4-6000. That will give me one channel of amp per output. 9 Kilowatt bass rig - Woo ;) !

X-Air internal AP FUBARness
« Reply #415 on: March 11, 2016, 04:15:57 AM »
Hmm... the X-Air internal AP only supports WEP "shared key" and Windows 8 and above only supports the more secure WEP "open system". So you can't connect from Windows 8 or 10. Good one Behringer :facepalm: x( :P :o

Turns out that the latest Beta of Win 10 doesn't work with WEP at all - no word yet if the next released version will support WEP or not. Microsoft says everyone should update their devices to WAP2 LOL.

Oh, and this was just using the XR12's internal AP to try to connect with my laptop.

They pushed a new beta of Win10 that now works fine with the XR12's AP.

I used my new XR12 based hybrid bass amp/PA last Friday night. I've had a fever since last Wednesday so my bizarre routing kinda gave me problems but I did get all four monitor mixes running and the mains and subs properly split out. I was running Behringer B208D's as mains, pole mounted over my two hybrid RevSound RS115X bass cabs / subs (reasonably flat from about 38Hz to 3000Hz). I was running vocals only to the mains, the kick and keys to mains high passed and subs low passed, and the bass to only the "subs" full range. I had meant to run the kick only to the "subs" full range too as one possible usage of this rig is without mains with a separate (venue ?) vocals-only PA. I won't be able to get any "click" out of the kick that way but it should do a good vintage kick sound.

It took some futzing to get the bass routing to work and I never did get the chorus/reverb on the vocal working but it sounded great otherwise. All sorted out at home now.

The iPad app is not as functional as the others, my usage of subgroups to fake the crossover was a problem as that app can't control subgroups (yet?). Sucks that I have three iPads that I really can't use without something else to access the missing functionality :( .

The PC app really needs two screens to be able to use a custom view of the faders as you can't access EQ etc from that custom view.  The Android app seems to be the most functional. Today I fired up my older $200 13.3" Android tablet and can get all the needed faders in one view 8).

All of my Android tablets suffer from the same issue - when you are updating any apps they freeze up and are useless until they finish - anybody else seeing that? The iPads seem much more stable and update apps no prob.

No prob with the internal AP at the gig, all detected networks were on channel 11 for some reason so the default channel 1 was clear :) .
