StudioLive RM32Ai and RM16Ai Mixers & UC Surface with QMix Ai

I'm going to preface this by saying, I use a StudioLive 32.4.2 Ai board almost every week including the ipad/android interfaces on tablets. I've never had this trouble with the board but this was my first time with the RM series.

So Saturday I was to do sound with the RM32Ai. 12 channels were setup for the band. We had the system hooked up through Firewire to a PC record everything using CAPTURE. On a quick test, it recorded audio on the unmuted channels. On the iPad we could see audio levels bouncing on all the mic channels and audio levels bouncing on the mains. We got the monitors working through Aux 1 & 2. What we could not get to work was any sound from anything hooked up to the main xlr jacks.

We double checked all the mutes for the individual channels, There were no subgroups, Everything appeared to be assigned to the mains (again, we saw the meters moving when people talked in the mics). Faders were up, the gain dial next to the XLR outputs was adjusted multiple times, We checked the mute all button, turned off all mutes in the software, we checked the routing, we even plugged in one of the powered monitors (that was working) into the main outs and still got nothing. If I was looking at the iPad connected to my Studio 32Ai Live, I would probably be deaf.

Previously, the band had done some tests with the RM capturing a practice or two and using the monitor outs (but not the mains).

We got down to 20 minutes before setup & Sound check was supposed to be done and had to quickly switch back over to the analog board and got everything working there without a hitch (so I know the issue wasn't cabling). The show went off without too many hitches (had a few feed back moments early on since I was missing some EQ equipment that wasn't brought given the RM was to be the mixer).

I'm missing something, probably something stupid, but we just couldn't get the RM to send output out the main jacks on the front. Helpf

The volume knob on the back of the rack mixer was turned up fully?

There is no knob on the back of the rack. There are the power cord port, the power switch, the Midi ports, the Option card (and it's ports) and the DB25 Ports.

I did previously state that I did adjust the trim knob next to the main output xlr plugs.

Uppps - I am sorry. I meant the trim pot(s) on the front and had not understood that you already checked them. You might want to check three more things:

1) Do you get a signal on Mono Out?
2) Do you get a signal on headphone out?
3) What happens if there is no FireWire (Capture) and computer involved?

You should also make a test after loading the zero out scene. This sets the mixer back to its original settings and routings. This helps sometimes. If not, a "factory reset" is the next and last option...

Have you route the channels to Main Out / Mono Out ?

I too, have had this happen with my RML32ai mixer. Took out of state to mix a show in lieu of bringing a behringer console provided by someone else. So, with no other mixer available, I plugged the main speakers to the aux 12 out. Aux 12 still has delay available and graphic eq. Worked for the show. I put a support ticket in, but was told to perform a factory reset.
I have not been in a position to do so yet, but came on this thread. Any wisdom?

Just had much the same happen with my RM32. Inputs were all metering, but in this case main outputs showed nothing on the meter and were in fact dead. Turn the Mute button on and off, went to mute groups and turned all mutes off, nothing worked.

Got the Main outputs back by using filters to recall the Mutes only from an old scene. Only time in three years for a scary incident with the RM.

Don't know whether related to new software/firmware or just a fluke.

I didn’t use mine or have scenes on it as it was the first time I used it for FOH. Previously used as slave in 64 channel setup.
So, if I use the mute filter only...
I’ll try it.

The "slave" does not use or need own scenes, but it keeps all settings from cascading. In a case when the rack mixers were not de-cascaded correctly, settings like muting of outputs can still be active. Sometimes loading the Zero Out scene helps, sometimes it needs a Factory Reset with the option card unplugged.

Mutes are not saved in scenes, only temporary on a single device.

Let me make a wild guess that you are on the latest firmware. If so, revert to 9244.

With 13731, I found the only solution to this problem was to reload the zero out scene, or any old scene that worked, using the Mutes filter so as not to mess anything else up. Somehow the Mutes are being set and no other Mutes control worked for me.

But if not on 9244, move back to it.
