Aha- now I see.  There are no menu buttons and menu screens for this on the physical M32c.

And you can't do it with a tablet because the tablet apps X32-mix and MixingStation don't let you access certain functions; saving/scenes to USB  drive being one of them.   At least that is true on the X32 rack. 

The X32-edit  program does offer a mechanism to get scenes from a thumb drive on the laptop and then send that to the M32C. 

Since X32-edit only runs on PC or Mac, you have to use a PC or Mac, not a tablet.

The caveats - I haven't tried to load a scene, cue, or a library thereof, nor save same, from the front panel of the M32C.  It *might* be possible, but never seen it done, never tried to do it.  I'd be happy to be wrong about this and save you extra work.

Confirmed it can't be done in Mixing Station...

When one of our X32Core or M32C owners can get in front of a physical unit perhaps we'll get a final answer.

So, question is to Paul or anyone else running low end DMX controllers - do they hold together long enough to be useful?

Paul you mentioned using a combination of both hardware and software controllers.  That's the direction I would like to go with Software control on the main lighting system for Dance Floor universe with a variety of fixtures including a dozen moving heads.  For the DJ console I would like a hardware controller so the DJ can set his lights to preference during the show (par cans in the truss focused down onto console areas).

I really don't like the Chauvet DJ stuff, it's noticably "cheap" even compared to the direct Elation/ADJ competition.

If you have a software system already setup why don't you add a midi hardware controller to get the physical controls, this could be a really simple touchpad if all you need is some parcan color presents for the DJ.

Hi Mike-

It's the lack of front panel controls and UI that makes loading/saving questionable on the M32C.  I don't own one and have not used the front panel to do anything other than cycle power.  If scenes can be directly saved/recalled from the f.p., it's news to me.

I'd add an Wireless Access Point and use a phone, tablet, or laptop to handle this and the other tasks that defy convenient manipulation.

Looks like this forum post here covers this exact discussion pretty well:

If the CX series were available I don't think it would even be a question. These things are rock solid.

The other day I noticed this picture associated with the article on microphone technique has the AT2020
oriented in the wrong position as it is a side address mic?
Sometimes you don't tell the acoustic guitar player that his mic is used for the drum kit..

The irony of the picture for a microphone technique article is what made me do a double take and laugh.

First ClearCom BP was in 1970.   Charlie Buttons began developing in 1966 but no hardware was available till the in 1970 2 years after WS

Thanks, Pete, that was what I thought but with no proof.

Thanks again for being there.

I was talking with someone who was involved in the production and management of the festival and highlighted how there was no communication devices there like what are common now at all levels of events, and she agreed that it was wondrous but that things just had a way of working out when you needed to talk with somebody.

That reminded me of the first year I did sound at this bluegrass festival that I did for the next 23 years or so, where the "Stage Managers" of the 5 stages let bands play as long as they felt like, which threw the festival hours off so they grabbed anybody who happened to be standing by to get up and play and thus the audiences were constantly wandering through the hallways of the hotel that it was mostly in to find the bands they were looking for. That resulted in a constant crush of people flowing two ways in the hall and there was no back way to get anywhere, so when you needed to talk with someone you had to jump in the river and make your way to the other side.

It was constantly astonishing how when you needed to talk to someone you'd be in the river and there they'd be coming the other way. That happened over and over, and I have to imagine Woodstock was similar. She agreed with that.

There's a movie called Shakespeare In Love that is about the famous guy in his early days, and Geoffrey Rush plays the impresario who continually says when there are impossible obstacles put in the way of the play presentation, that everything will work out and nobody knows how but they will. It was true in that day and still holds. The event finds a way if there's only faith by the participants.

That first Woodstock had faith (and luck, with the right tone to create luck set by Michael Lang) in Spades.

FWIW, the second year I did that bluegrass festival and for the next 20 or so I was in charge of the Stage Managers and crews, too, and all stages ran on time.

I don't have an M32C or X32 Core; looking to buy one.  I have X32 racks and an X32 compact and they allow easy scene (and show) saving and loading to thumb drive directly on the console.


But I have read a variety of threads, as recently as fall of 2021, saying this was not possible on the M32C (the single  U mixer with no I/O).  Instead it seems you have to connect a PC to the M32C and use X32-Edit in order to save or load a scene for transfer to another console.


See bottom 3  posts in this thread:

Since I am constantly saving and loading individual scenes to different X32's the feature to load/save directly to thumb drive is important to me.


I was hoping for confirmation one way or another from someone that has the M32c and does this or has tried and can say for sure it does or does not work.

Ah, I get it. I am not familiar with the Midas version of the Core and didn't register that it was the M32C. Sorry.

I use my Cores regularly now as a few FW versions ago they changed it from "Not being able to import or export anything" to "Able to import/export Shows but not Scenes".

What I do is save my current Scene/Scenes to slot 00 and after if there's more than one, and export and import the whole Show so that the first visible Scene (00) is the one of interest.

Sounds like Craig has routinized having a computer at all his gigs to accomplish it easier, but I almost never take a computer to a gig so this is how I do it.

If someone were sending me a Scene I guess I'd have to put it in slot 00 in the shop ahead of time on a console that I keep out for doing such things or other shop things with a console, and do what I said above.

It's not the easiest workflow, but you can make it work. I like the Cores and S16s combo as the spare console is right there in the rack and I had them and extra S16s anyway. There's a lot of bang in not much space.

Hope this is of more help than my first reply.

If only the mic could be invisible and not need to be near the speaker it would be perfect.


Find me one those at actually works and I'm all in!


I have the Countryman A3C's and the 4RF's both are very good.
