Connecting an S16 to the X32
I have an X32 and an S16 digital snake, I had everything set up today, but I couldn't get the S16 to work and I don't know if I'm doing something wrong.
I had the S16 connected to the AES50-A port on the back of the X32, then in the X32 routing page I set the "Inputs 1-8" as "AES50 A1-8" and "Inputs 9-16" as "AES50 A9-16". I left the outputs alone as I was using the local bus sends for my FOH L&R.
Having done this I was able to use the channel strip to turn on/off +48v phantom power and also use the gain control to alter the S16's pre-amp's. But I never managed to get a signal into the X32 channel, if I used headphones on the S16 I could hear my mics, and the level meters were registering an input at the S16. The signal never made it to the X32 console though. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong!
In the routing page of the X32 the "AES50 A" is shown as a "Connected device", but at the top, the "A: S16" box had a red light next to it, whereas the others had green. I don't know if that means anything, though I'm guessing it does as Red generally means bad!
Can anyone shed any light on this situation? I'll be trying again tomorrow but I'm out of ideas so would appreciate some help
Hi Lufferov, I am new to x32 and we are looking to purchase s16. Were you able to resolve your s16 to x32 issue?
Yes, it was a synchronisation issue. Works just fine.

Yes, this is likely a Sync or Sample Rate issue. Press the Setup button. Go to the Config tab. Here you can check that the Sample Rate matches what is set on the S16. (44.1 K or 48 K) Then you'll check what the Synchronization is assigned to. Normally you would use Local Sync, but in this setup using an S16, you'll select AES50 A as the Sync source.

So where did you get an S16 from and what country are you in?
