Re: Sets and Program Changes

I used On Song to make Program Changes. It was set for each song so no matter where it appeared it would switch to it. Make a set list in On Song and you don't have to mess with changing PC's

USB MIDI host/patch software 64 bit

So looking to control stuff using USB MIDI and have come to understand why it never worked before. Couldn't control XR18 mixer using MPK61 and also control iPad synth app unless plugged directly to it with a USB keyboard. I need a USB host or Patchbay software to do this. I found one that has not be...

Re: Output higher than input??

Good to see that your problem was resolved. I assume you had longish reverbs and/or delays with the AxeFX? That's the only reason I can think of as to why changing the Silence Previous Patch setting fixed things. Currently it is just a practice concert where I have a dozen or so guitar patches that...

Re: Output higher than input??

So, the setting to silence previous patch was . . . . . . . 5 seconds. Switched to immediately and problem solved. Guess there was input from 2 presets for 5 seconds causing the extra level.

Output higher than input??

Hello. I'm getting a situation where my output (USB17/18) is a much higher level than my input and seems to be limiting after 5 seconds on its own. I have an AxeFX into an XR18 coming into MainStage at -12dB outputting around 5dB higher. Then 5 seconds later I hear a click and the output level is re...

OK, so I said I was rusty. The controller was at the SET level and I was putting the instrument into a PATCH.

Software instruments/MIDI issue

Hello all. I have a concert setup with a couple of software instruments. None are working. MIDI monitor show proper channel etc. I'm just not getting any sign that they're working with the 2 channel strips. I just tested in Logic by adding an instrument and using the same controller and it worked. I...

Always have to reset Audio

Seems like each time I start mainStage my audio interface (XR18) is not recognized. I have to switch to any other one listed then back to get it to work. I have an aggregate device using the XR18 & an iConnect MIDI2+.

Any ideas why this may be happening?

Thanks

Re: Sample rate and equipment compatibility

Big question is should I set my devices for 48kHz if they're going to be used in a video? Yes. What should my default be? What default? Thanks for your reply I guess by “default” I mean can I just leave everything set to 48 for general use? Or only use 48 when specifically recording for video?

Sample rate and equipment compatibility

Hello all. I have a question regarding sample rate and all my gear. I have the option of 44.1 or 48 kHz for Logic, AX8, XR18, PCM recorder etc. I understand that audio for video should be at 48kHz and stand alone audio is generally 44.1. Big question is should I set my devices for 48kHz if they're g...

Re: Hissing from SampleTank3

Ah never mind. The license didn't transfer over during the migration. Seems it was by design. Once I re registered it no more hiss.

Hissing from SampleTank3

Hello all. Just migrated to a new MacBook Pro and now I am getting a 2-3 second hiss from my SampleTank plugin every 10 seconds. Never did that before. I went to the Plug In manager and reset and rescanned SampleTank3 and it passed. No fix.

Any idea as to the cause?

Thanks

Audio Experts, strange occurrence

So my nephew and I are watching TV and I pause the TiVo. He starts going cringing at the "squeal" and plugging his ears. He asks "don't you hear that?" which I didn't. I thought he was having the onset to a seizure. I open my FFT app and sure enough there is a 40db spike at 16kHz...

I've used Hubs for Keyboard controllers, iConnectMIDI, Pedals & Footswitches etc. with no issues. Interface gets its own USB port.

Re: Help request: Ethernet control of mixer/interface with MacBook/Thunderbolt dock

It seems like the mixer does now connect to MacBook through Dock's ethernet port.  Travel router needed to be on Access Point as it was assigning IP's and messing me up.

Re: Modulation wheel: how to increase the maximum?

In the middle of the ES2 is the Modulation matrix.  See which parameter is assigned to the Mod Wheel.  If it is LFO1 then go to the LFO portion and change the frequency to your liking.  Also in the modulation matrix there are small pointers along the right side.  That will also change how much modul...
