28 X32 DIGITAL MIXER Preliminary User Manual
3. Select one of the three input channel layers (CH1-16, CH17-32,
4. Adjust the 32 channels of input faders on the left side of the console.
Theynow act as “virtual aux send knobs” for the Mix Bus 1 feeding the
stagemonitor, allowing you to quickly adjust the overall monitor mix using
the faders.
Setting up a live stage monitor mix using the S16 Digital Stage Box:
1. Connect the S16 stage box to AES50 port A on the rear panel of the console
using a standard Cat 5 Ethernet cable.
2. On the stage, connect a cable from Output 1 of the S16 stagebox to the input
of the stage monitor.
3. Press the ROUTE button and page right to the AES50 A page.
4. Adjust the rst encoder to select “Out 1-8” for the rst 8 outputs of the
AES50 A bus, then press the encoder to make the connection.
5. Analog Outputs 1-8 on the X32 are now routed to the rst 8 outputs of the
AES50 A connector, which in turn feeds the 8 analog outputs of the S16 stage
box connected to the AES50 A connector.
6. Adjust the monitor mix that feeds Mix Bus 1, as described above.
Setting up a live stage monitor mix using the P16 Ultranet Bus:
1. Connect an Ultranet personal monitor mixer (or P16 distribution amplier)
to either the P16 connector on the rear panel of the X32, or to the P16
connector on an S16 stage box that is connected to the X32 console.
2. Press the ROUTE button and page right to the P16 page.
3. Adjust the rst and fourth encoders to pair specic audio slots on the P16 bus
with direct outs of various console channels, pressing the fourth encoder to
complete each connection.
4. Any personal mixer connected to the P16 bus will now receive up to 16
individual audio channels, allowing its user to craft their own unique
monitor mix.
5. When using the P16 connector on an S16 connected to AES50 port A,
pressthe ROUTE button and page right to the AES50 A page, then adjust
the fth encoder to select ‘P16 1-8’, then press the encoder. Adjust the sixth
encoder to select ‘P16 9-16’, then press the encoder. Note: The P16 signals on
the S16 are sourced from AES50 channels 33-48.
Communicating with talent on stage:
1. Press the “view” button in the Talkback section.
2. Adjust the fourth encoder to set the destination of the talkback microphone,
pressing the encoder to set the connections. The talkback mic can be routed
to any of the individual mix buses that are feeding a monitor system.
3. Adjust the third encoder to set the volume of the talkback mic.
4. Press the second encoder to choose between the onboard talkback mic and
an external one connected to the top panel.
5. Press the talkback A button to activate the talkback microphone to
communicate with the stage talent. The talkback button can be set to
latching or non-latching using the push action of the 5th encoder.
5.7 Everything you ought to know about Solo
and monitor sources
The X32 console allows you to monitor audio sources on a set of headphones or
monitor speakers when operating the console from a front-of-house position.
1. Connect a set of headphones to the ¼" phones jacks located in either of the
console’s side panels.
2. Alternatively, connect a set of monitors to the XLR or ¼" monitor outs on the
rear panel.
3. Press the “view” button in the monitor section.
4. Adjust the 6th encoder to select the audio source for the monitor bus,
forexample LR PFL (LR Pre-Fader Listen). This will output the main LR
pre-fader signal to the monitors when no Solo button is selected on any of
the channels or buses.
5. Adjust the rst encoder to set the level of the monitor signal.
Then, adjust the level of the connected headphones and/or monitor
usingtheir respective level controls on the X32 top panel.
6. Press the Solo button on any input or output channel to send that channel’s
audio to the solo bus. This operation will not aect the mix that the audience
is hearing, nor the monitor mix heard by the talent. Input channels take
priority over DCAs, DCAs take priority over buses, and buses take priority
over main LRC/mono.
7. Press the “Clear Solo” button above the master faders to quickly clear the
solo status of any and all channels. This is particularly useful when solo is
active on a channel that is not present on the current input layer and you
wish to quickly clear its solo status.
8. When monitoring a stereo signal, press the top panel “Mono” button to
listen to the monitor bus in mono. Press the “Dim” button to listen to the
monitor signal at a lower level.
The solo bus also has various preferences that can be set using the second
encoder, allowing you tailor its operation to your specic working style.
1. Use “Exclusive” if you want the act of pressing another solo button to
automatically disengage the previous solo. This is useful if you know you
will never want to solo more than one channel of material at the same time.
Inthis mode you can press several Solo buttons at the same time to solo the
corresponding channels together.
2. Use “Solo Follows Select” if you want the solo selection to automatically
follow any channel that you have selected. This allows you to quickly hear
the audio of that channel in your headphones when you select it to adjust
EQ, compression, etc. Remember that you need to solo a channel rst before
this function is active.
3. Use “Select Follows Solo” when you want the reverse to occur: Any channel
that is soloed will automatically become the currently selected channel,
allowing you quickly make adjustments for any channel you have soloed.
4. Use the “Channel Solo AFL” to listen to the channel signal after the fader and
stereo PAN.
5. Use “Mix Bus Solo AFL” to listen to the mix bus signal after the fader and
stereo PAN.
6. Use “DCA Group AFL” if you want to put the contents of a soloed DCA group into
after-fader listen mode when the solo button is pressed on a DCA channel.
7. “Use Master Fader” option lets you adjust the solo signal on the monitor/
headphones with the Master fader on the console. Note: The master output
level cannot be changed in this mode. This mode has primarily been
designed for using the X32 as a pure monitor console where the main bus is
not used for your PA system.
