We just got the new Behringer X32 and S16 today for the church.
Faulty CAT5e Cable
The S16 light was green and set to Outputs 1-8 but the Behringer X32 had red lights on the AES50-A of the S16. Red lights usually mean not good! The connection to the S16 would drop occasionally, and the screen on the X32 would flicker! Took me two hours to figure out that maybe I should change to another ethernet cable and behold it worked! Just before the band's rehearsal.
After which I had a strange problem. The bass player had his bass DIed directly to Channel 17 on the S17, and no matter what I did, I even muted the channel, the bass would still go through, louder of course when i raise the fader, and sometimes there would be crackling noise (no its not a faulty cable, read on...).
So in short...
- sound coming through even though channel fader is down and muted
- sometimes there would be a crackling noise (sounds like a faulty cable but its not)
When I switched over to another Channel on the S17. All if fine, and everything works!
Rehearsal's over now. Anyone has any clues what might be the issue?
