    Only assumed it was digital as he mentioned "HA gain". Perhaps that was my mistake.

    I think masters on zero channel fader on zero is a good start, with gain as low as possible, make them singers break a bit of a sweat in sound check,

    Hi Carl,
    I agree with what the others have posted. Gain stage is very important to your set up. When troubleshooting, I tend to go towards the lowest price items first, as they are the most likely to fail. I don't know if you've tried this, but I would change the cable first. Then the mic. If you get the same results, I would try another channel on the console. If all are the same, I would save my console settings to a usb thumb drive, THEN initialize the console, and try it again. All of this will take about 5-10 min. I would do this first just so I know that everything I'm working with is working properly, and it pretty much HAS to be a setting. Otherwise you can chase ghosts for hours before you find out that pin 2 on the mic has no output.
    The other big thing is the vocalist's mic technique. It can help if you set mic levels to the loudest thing they will be singing(during mic check/sound check). Have the vocalist sing the second chorus of a song, or a modulation and set levels there. This way you won't clip when they get there during the set.
    And lastly, try setting the gain somewhere between +30 to +45, and if needed, drop in a compressor.

    Hi phil!

    Good advise...

    Keep in mind that there is no known way of initializing the x32 like some other consoles. The 'initialize console' function only loads a factory preset scene. It doesn't revert the x32 to some factory default. There is therefor no need to save the console to an usb-stick.

    Well guys I think we have all given some pretty good advise here. However until Carl replies with some info or updates, we are just shooting in the dark. Hopefully he will let us know how things are going.
    If it can't be heard, it can't be Good!

    Hi Robert,
    Yep, I was going for the factory preset scene. The idea was to get rid of any possible incorrect settings that may have been made, but not lose any other user settings. Thanks for jumping in
