5.4 How do I add one of the 8 internal eects
to the sound?
There are two types of eects that are commonly used:
• “Eects Loop” (side chain) style eects, where multiple channels all send
varying amounts of their signal to a common eect, such as a reverb,
delay,or chorus.
• “Insert” style eects that are inserted in to the signal path of a single
channel of audio. Examples would be a graphic EQ, lter, exciter,
To apply an “Eects Loop” style eect:
• Press the “FX” menu button. The main screen will show the FX home screen
where dierent eects processors are assigned to the 8 processing slots.
• Adjust rotary encoder #6 to highlight the rst eects processor; it will be
surrounded by an orange outline.
• Adjust rotary encoder #1 and rotary encoder #2, selecting your desired bus
as the source for both the left and right inputs of the rst eect processor.
Bydefault, FX 1 is sourced from Bus 13.
• Adjust rotary encoder #5 to select a specic eect processor,
suchas “Ambience”.
• Select the fader bank button labeled “RTN” on the left side of the console.
Bring the faders labeled FX1L and FX1R up to 0 dB in case they are not set to
this value by default. In the initial setup, these returns are stereo linked and
automatically send to the main LR bus, but it is also possible to send them to
the other buses as well. For this, press the HOME button next to the screen
while the return is selected, then go to the SENDS tab with the PAGE SELECT
right button and adjust the send levels for the return to the other buses,
oruse the dedicated BUS SENDS controls.
• Back on the EFFECTS page, press the PAGE SELECT right button to switch the
screen to the editor for the Ambience processor. The screen will switch to an
editor page for the rst processor. Adjust the rotary encoders to tailor the
eect to your liking.
• To apply the eect to assorted input channels, select an input channel,
thenadjust its “Bus Send 13” knob to taste. As the bus send level is
increased, more of the channel signal will be sent to the Ambience
eect. Repeat this process with other channels you wish to send to the
To apply an “insert” style eect:
• Press the “EFFECTS” menu button.
• As the eects on the left side are also able to handle complex send eects
like reverb, the slots on the right side shall be used for insert eects like
limiter, graphic EQ, etc. You can also use insert eects on the left side,
butthis will limit your use of reverbs and other processor-intensive eects.
• Adjust rotary encoder #6 to highlight one of the eects processors on the
right side; it will be surrounded by an orange outline.
• Adjust rotary encoder #1 and rotary encoder #2, selecting “Insert” as the
source for both the left and right inputs of the eect processor.
• Adjust rotary encoder #5 to select a specic eect processor, such as
“precision limiter”.
• Select the specic input or output channel you wish to use the inserted
eect on.
• Press the HOME button, then the PAGE SELECT right button to navigate to the
selected channel’s “Cong” screen.
• Adjust rotary control #6 to select the specic processor you have applied the
eect to, in this case “Ins FX 5L”. Press the encoder to connect the selected
insert eect.
• The Precision Limiter is now applied as an insert on the selected channel.
Sending more than one channel through the same insert eect is, of course,
prohibited. There will be a warning when you try to insert an eect slot that
has already been used as an insert on any other channel. Both sides of a dual
type eect can be used as inserts on dierent channels or buses.
5.5 How do I use an outboard
In some situations, you may wish to use a loop-style eect provided by an
external eect processor, as opposed to using one of the eight built-in processors.
To do so:
• Press the ROUTE button, page right to the “Aux Out” screen, and adjust the
rst and fourth encoders to tie a rear panel ¼" aux out, such as Aux Out 1,
toan available mix bus, such as Mix Bus 2.
• Patch rear panel Aux Output 1 to the input of your external eects processor.
• Patch the output of the external eects processor to rear panel Aux Input 1.
• Select the “Aux In/FX/USB” layer, select the “Aux 1” channel, and make sure
the stereo button is lit so that the Aux 1 return signal is assigned to the main
LR bus.
• Move the Aux 1 channel fader to 0 dB.
• Adjust the settings on the external eects processor to taste.
5.6 How do I set up live stage monitoring?
Setting up a live stage monitor mix using conventional monitors:
1. Press the ROUTE button and page right to the Analog Out page.
2. Adjust the rst encoder to select a rear panel analog output (e.g. Output 1),
then adjust the fourth encoder to select a mix bus (e.g. Mix Bus 1). Whenthe
source and destination have been selected, press the 4th encoder to
complete the assignment.
3. Adjust the 5th encoder to set up the monitor send as pre-fader, or pre/post
EQ. This will prevent the monitor mix from changing when the front-of-
house mix is adjusted.
4. Connect a cable from rear panel analog Out 1 to the input of:
a) A powered stage monitor
b) An external amplier feeding a passive stage monitor
c) A transmitter for a set of wireless in-ear monitors
5. On the bank of output faders on the right hand side of the console, selectthe
monitor bus (1-8, 9-16) (in this case Bus 1) and adjust the fader to 0 dB
initially. You can change the overall output level on this bus anytime later,
6. To adjust the mix sent to the monitor, select an input channel, then adjust
its “Bus Send 1” knob. Repeat for the other input channels to complete the
monitor mix.
The monitor mix can also be adjusted using the X32’s “Sends on Faders” function:
1. On the bank of output faders on the right hand side of the console,
selectthemonitor bus (1-8, 9-16) that feeds the talent’s stage monitor
(inthis case Bus 1).
2. Press the “Sends on Faders” button. You will see the button illuminate.
