Mixer Operational Overview
General user interface operation
This chapter will give you an overview of the basic operations of the mixer,
allowing you to get up and running quickly. While reading through the
information, we encourage you to experiment with the console’s different
screens and controls. The console’s user interface was designed to be extremely
to navigate through and learn. More specific details about various functions can
be referenced later in the manual.
The X32 user interface is divided into five major sections:
(1) Channel Strip
(2) Input Channels
(3) Display and Monitoring
(4) Group/Bus/Main Channels
(5) Scenes/Assign/Mute Groups
!

!
1. Turn on the first three power point switches located at underneath the
cords for the lights.
2. Turn on the mixer. The power switch is located at the top right on the
back of the mixer. The mixer is always first on and last off.
3. Ensure both EQ’s are on (the 2nd one is always on). Press and hold the
power button on the top one if it is not on.
4. Turn on both amplifiers. Turn the 3/4.

Input Channel Banks
t Input Channels 1-16
You will find a select button on top of every channel that is used to direct the
control focus of the user interface, including all channel related parameters
(channel strip and main display), to that channel. Please note that at any time,
there is exactly one channel selected (either Input Ch 1-32, Aux 1-8, FX Returns
1L-4R, Mix Bus 1-16, Main LR/C, or Matrix 1-6). DCA Groups (digitally controlled
amplifier) cannot be selected because they control a number of assigned
channels rather than one specific channel.
t Input Channels 17-32
The Input Channels section of the console is located on the left hand side, and
offers 16 separate input channel strips. These 16 channel strips represent three
separate layers of inputs for the console, including:
t Auxiliary Inputs 1-6/USB playback/FX Returns 1L-4R
Press any of the correspondingly labeled layer buttons on the left side of the
console to switch the input channel bank to any of the three layers listed above.
The button will illuminate, reminding you which layer is active.
A fourth layer (Bus Masters) is also offered, allowing you to adjust the levels of
the 16 Mix Bus Masters, which is useful when you wish to include Bus Masters
into DCA Group assignments.
