Various Assignments (DCA groups, mute groups,
custom assignable controls)
• Assigning DCA Groups
Thanks to the two distinct fader groups (inputs on the left, outputs on the right),
the task of assigning channels or buses to a virtual DCA Group is a breeze on the X32.
Simply hold the respective DCA Group Select button on the right-hand side of the
console, whilepressing the select buttons for all the input channels that you wish to
assign to said DCA Group. You can also press the DCA Group Select button in order
to check which channels are already assigned to it. Theassigned channel Select
buttons will light up.
• Assigning Mute Groups
The mute group assignment process is similar to the above, but is designed
with an additional precaution in order to prevent accidental muting of channels
during a show. To assign input/output channels to one of the six mute groups
(controlledby the buttons located to the right of the Main LR fader) you need
to rst switch on the Mute Grp button next to the main display. While holding
the desired Mute Group button, select the desired input and output channels,
whichwill now be assigned to the Mute Group. When you are done with
assignment, switcho Mute Grp at the display, andthe 6 Mute Group buttons
will work asintended.
• Custom Assignable Controls:
The Assign section of the console oers three banks: A, B, and C. Each set of
controls oers 4rotary controls and 8 switches/buttons, allowingfor freely
customizable access to 36random functions on the X32.
To make a custom assignment:
• Press the View button in the Assign section to edit the assignments
• Select the set of controls you wish to edit (A, B or C)
• Select the control 1-12 you wish to assign
• Select the parameter you wish to control and assign the function
Usually this is used to control a specic channel’s parameter, like the lead
vocalist’s reverb send level.
The Jump-to-Page control is a special target type that does not alter any
audio parameter, but rather brings you directly to any specied display page.
Buttonsthat had been used for Jump-to-Page previously can easily be reassigned
to the current display view by holding the respective set button (A, B or C)
depressed while pushing the desired assignable button. This method is more
convenient than reassigning the jump function through the Assign menu.
The “Sends on Faders” Function
The X32 console features a very useful function thatcan be accessed by pressing
the dedicated Sends on Faders button, located between the twofader sections.
The Sends on Faders function aids with level setting of channels sent to any of
the 16 Mix Buses. Itis only for channels assigned to Mix Buses 1-16, anddoes
NOT work for DCA groups, main or matrix buses. The Sends on Faders function
works in two convenient ways to cover the most obvious situations in a live
soundenvironment :
When preparing a monitor mix for a specific musician
• Select the monitor bus (1-8, 9-16) that feeds the talent’s stage monitor
• Press the Sends on Faders button; itwillilluminate
• Select one of the three input channel layers (CH1-16, CH 17-32,
Line-Aux/FX Ret)
• As long as the Sends on Faders is active, allfaders in the input channels
section (locatedon the left side of the console) correspond to the send levels
to the selected (monitor) mix bus
When checking/editing where a selected input signal is (to be) sent to
• Select the input channel in the left section
• Press the Sends on Faders button; itwillilluminate
• Select either bus channel layer 1-8 or 9-16
• The bus faders (located on right side of the console) now represent the
send levels from the selected input channel (located on the left side of
The option to use Sends on Faders in both ways, selecting an input or an output
channel, is a special feature of the X32.
