2 MIXER CONTROLS
2.1 Input Trim
This controls the gain of the analog mic or line input preamplifier. For analog inputs, this is the most important control for setting up proper gain structure in the mixer. Properly set, it helps to avoid clipping and maintains low noise. A good rule is that
with typical input signal present on a channel, adjust the trim control to allow 20dB headroom between the expected signal's
peak level and when it clips. In other words, normal signal peaks should be around "0" on the meter. Set this control first and
then leave it alone unless the input source changes. Do not use the trim control to adjust mix volume later on, use the channel's
fader control instead.
2.2 Input/Output LEDs
Input LEDs indicate the signal level of each input in dBu, after its preamplifier but pre-fader. Output LEDs (Sub & Main)
indicate signal level at the output. They can alternately indicate every channel's current fader position by pressing the Faders/
Meters button (sec. 2.23).
2.3 Select Button
Each input, subgroup, main output, aux, and effect (FX) has its own select button. Press any select button to navigate to that
channel's control interface. Any time a select button is pressed, the motorized fader controls that input or output level.
2.4 USB 2-Trk I/O Port
This is used to connect with a USB stereo audio device for playback or recording. It is not for software control of the mixer.
USB audio input is adjusted using the USB 23-24 control (sec. 2.9). When recording from the USB port, the main L/R output
signal is used.
2.5 Headphone Out
Plug in headphones here for monitoring the main outputs or selected solo channels. Use the Headphones Level control to adjust
volume
2.6 Meter/Solo Button
Press this button to toggle the two LED bars directly above it from indicating either the Stereo Main signal level, or the Stereo
Solo level.
5
Operating Manual - digiMIX24 Digital Mixer
2.7 Line 1 & 2 Level Control
Line1 and line2 level controls adjust the level of inputs 1718 and 19-20 to the main mix. Line inputs can be assigned
to the main, aux, sub, and FX bus using the Assign button
and touchscreen (sec. 2.38). For stereo line inputs, press the
Stereo Link button (sec. 2.34) so that settings of the selected
line input will track with its adjacent channel. Movement of
a selected line level control also moves the motorized fader
and corresponding touchscreen fader, as all three controls
work together.
2.8 Tape Level Control
Tape inputs 21-22 come from the RCA inputs, and can be
assigned to the main, aux, sub, and FX bus using the assign
button and touchscreen. This control only adjusts the tape
input level to the main mix, working together with the motorized fader and the corresponding touchscreen fader.
2.9 USB Level Control
USB stereo inputs 23-24 come from the USB audio input
(sec. 2.4). They can be assigned to the main, aux, sub, and
FX bus using the assign button and touchscreen. This control
only adjusts the USB input level to the main mix, working
together with the motorized fader and the corresponding
touchscreen fader.
2.10 Aux 1-4 Level Controls and Send Button
Aux outputs are typically used for secondary mixes such as monitors, video feed, assistive listening devices, subwoofers, etc. Each
aux level control, when selected, determines the overall output level for that aux output.
Input channels are assigned to an aux mix pre or post-fader using one of two methods: The first method is to select an input channel, then press the <Assign> button. Use the touchscreen to select the aux outputs you wish to send that input channel to, then
adjust the level sent to that aux mix by adjusting either the touchscreen <Parameter Adjust> control or the Adjust Parameter knob.
The second method is to press the <Send> button associated with each aux level control to quickly view and adjust all input channels sent to that aux mix. Use the touchscreen to select each input and assign it pre/post, and use either the touchscreen <Parameter
Adjust> control or the Adjust Parameter knob to adjust the level sent to the aux mix.
2.11 Subgroup 1-4 Level Control (or Aux 5-8)
Subgroups are typically used for a user-selected group of inputs to be controlled together using one fader, or to send grouped
signals to their own dedicated output for recording or processing. Typical grouped inputs include drum sets, choirs, orchestral
sections, background vocals, etc. FX can be included in a subgroup. Subgroups are somewhat similar to DCA and aux groups, but
each have advantages. Subgroups in this mixer are always post-fader. Inputs can be assigned to multiple subgroups. To create a
stereo subgroup, SUB1-2 or SUB3-4 can be linked using the stereo link button (sec. 2.34).
To assign inputs to a subgroup, first select an input or FX channel, then press the desired SUB (1-4) button below the touchscreen
(sec. 2.33), or similarly press the Assign button for touchscreen control. All inputs and FX assigned to a subgroup will be controlled
by their respective SUB (1-4) level control. Subgroups can only be routed back to the main L/R outputs or to their dedicated subgroup output jacks. Subgroups can use onboard processing including polarity, delay time, compression, PEQ, and GEQ.
When assigning an input to a subgroup for live mixing, you should leave its assignment to the Main output unselected, otherwise
the input will still be heard in the main mix even with its subgroup level control turned all the way down.
Aux(5-8) Mode: All four subgroups can be switched as a group to work instead as Aux5-8 outputs that function the same as Aux1-4.
To switch their function from subgroup to aux, press the system button (sec. 2.30) and press the touchscreen button that says Aux/
Sub Mode and press "Yes" when the display prompts to change settings.

Operating Manual - digiMIX24 Digital Mixer
2.12 FX 1 & 2 Level Controls, Send, and Mute Button
This mixer has built-in effects including reverbs, delay, chorus, flanger, tremolo, plus various combinations. Up to 104 effects can
be custom configured, saved, and loaded from mixer memory (sec. 2.44). Only two effects can be used at a time.
Press the FX1 or FX2 button beneath the touchscreen to define or load the currently available effects (sec. 2.44). Then press the FX1
or FX2 Send button and use the touchscreen Parameter Adjust fader or the Adjust Parameter knob (sec. 2.27) to set the level of each
input that you want sent to each effect. Pre/Post effect send status is also assigned here. An alternate method of applying effect to
an input channel is to select an input, press the Assign button, then select and adjust the resulting touchscreen FX1 or FX2 controls.
Once FX1 and FX2 have been defined and desired input channel sends have been adjusted, each FX bus must be routed to the
main, aux, or subgroup outputs as desired. Press the FX1 or FX2 Select button, then press the Assign button, then select the main
or sub outputs using the touchscreen or with the buttons below the touchscreen. Similarly assign and adjust the FX level sent to
Aux outputs using the touchscreen parameter adjust control for each aux.
The master FX1 and FX2 knobs, when selected, work along with the motorized fader to control the FX level sent to the stereo
main and four subgroup outputs as assigned. FX level sent to the aux outputs is adjusted by using the touchscreen assign window
or the aux level controls, again while FX1 or FX2 is selected. Press the FX1 or FX2 mute button to silence the effect or compare
the sound with/without effect.
2.13 Main Volume Control
This control adjusts the stereo output level to the main L/R outputs, nothing else. When the main select button is pressed (sec 2.3),
this control works together with the motorized fader and touchscreen.
2.14 Ctrl Room Level Control
This adjusts the level of the control room outputs. Control room outputs always use
the post-fader signal from the main L/R outputs.
2.15 Headphones Level Control
This adjusts the headphone output level. The headphones default to L/R post-fader signal
unless an input, output, subgroup, FX, or DCA group is assigned to the solo bus. (sec 2.19)
2.16 DCA Set Button
Digital controlled amplifiers (DCA1-6) are used to combine multiple inputs, aux or
sub outputs, or FX outputs into one group for easier control. DCA groups allow the
relative fader position of each member to be preserved while adjusting their level as a
group. It also allows the group to be instantly muted. This is typically used for grouping vocals, drums, choir or orchestral sections, etc. DCA groups must first be defined
before using EZ-Mode (see section 6).
To set a DCA group, first press the DCA Set button so that it flashes, then select any
DCA button on the mixer or touchscreen, then select the channels to group together
for that DCA. When finished, press DCA Set again to store settings. Channels can be
assigned to multiple DCA groups. To clear a DCA group, press the DCA set button,
then press DCA clear on the touchscreen.
2.17 DCA Buttons
These six buttons are used to select a pre-defined DCA group for main fader, mute, or
solo control. If the DCA group is not defined, a touchscreen message appears requiring a response before proceeding.
2.18 Motorized Fader
This is the primary level control for all inputs, main output, aux and sub outputs, effects master, and DCA control. Press the select
button on any input or output, and the motorized fader will control its level. The fader works together with other level controls
used for the same selected signal. Motorized fader speed can be adjusted in the system screen (see section 5.2).

Operating Manual - digiMIX24 Digital Mixer
2.19 Solo Button
Use the solo button for listening to one or more isolated signals in the headphones.
Select an input, output, subgroup, FX, or DCA group, then press the solo button to
include that signal in the solo bus. The default solo setting is post-fader, meaning
the solo signal level depends on the solo channel's fader position.
Press the solo clear button to clear all solo selected channels. With no channels
selected for solo, the headphone output defaults to the main L/R output, post fader.
Solo status can also be viewed and set from the touchscreen display.
The solo feature is in stereo, so that any stereo linked channels or FX are heard in stereo.
2.20 PFL Button
As part of the solo function, PFL is used to monitor selected solo channels at their
pre-fader level, meaning the selected solo channel(s) will still be heard even if its
fader is turned down.
2.21 Clear Button
This button clears all solo selections and returns the headphones to main L/R.
2.22 Mute Button
The mute button is used to silence the selected input, output, aux or sub output, FX, or
DCA group. Mute status can also be seen or controlled using the touchscreen display.
2.23 LED Faders/Meters Select Button
This button is used to toggle the input LEDs (sec. 2.2) between indicating the current
signal levels across all channels, or indicating the current fader position of all channels.
2.24 Pan Control
The pan control is dedicated to fading signals from left to right in the mix. It's position for a channel is displayed in the touchscreen.
2.25 EQ Bypass Button
Press the EQ bypass button to disable the PEQ or GEQ on the selected channel. This is useful for comparing signal with and without EQ.
2.26 Mixer/Long Faders Select Button
This button toggles between the two main mixer displays, one showing every mixer input and output at once, the other showing
groups of eight channels with longer faders. Channel names can only be edited in long fader mode. To edit a channel name, press
and hold the channel number at the bottom of any channel in long fader mode, then use the pop-up touchscreen keyboard.
2.27 Parameter Adjust Control
This control is typically used to adjust the currently active or highlighted DSP parameter within the touchscreen display. It may
work together with other level controls.
2.28 Flat Button
Press this button to flatten the PEQ or GEQ settings on the currently selected input or output.
2.29 Enter (Tap) Button
This button has two functions. The first is to offer a "Yes" response any time the touchscreen prompts for yes or no input, for
example selecting a DCA that has not yet been defined.
8
Operating Manual - digiMIX24 Digital Mixer
The second function is to manually set an FX delay time to match the beat of the music, also referred to as "tap delay". Press the FX1
or FX2 button and select Delay as the effect type. Set the delay time by pressing the TAP button at the start and again at the end of
the desired delay time. Maximum tap delay is 1200ms.
2.30 System Buttons
The middle system button opens the touchscreen display for a variety of utility controls such as LCD brightness, aux/sub mode, password/security functions, default settings reset, and more (sec. 4). The up/down/left/right buttons are used to select and adjust controls
shown on the touchscreen, their role depending on the currently open function. For example, with the GEQ function open, the two
L/R system buttons move to select one of the 31 EQ bands, while the U/D buttons adjust the selected EQ filter level. The buttons work
together with touch controls on the the screen, but for smaller touchscreen controls it is easier to use the system buttons.
2.31 Save, Load, and Copy Buttons
There are four different types of user presets that can be saved/loaded on the digiMIX24.
1) Scene - Scene presets are the most inclusive, capturing all audio settings in the mixer. Up to 24 scene presets are available.
2) DSP Channel - The DSP channel preset is used on inputs, outputs, aux, and subgroups. It saves/loads a single channel's
assignments, channel settings, gate, comp, and PEQ/GEQ settings. Up to 48 different DSP channel presets can be saved.
3) FX - FX presets are used to save/load up to 104 different user defined FX1 and FX2 effects.
4) GEQ - The 48 GEQ presets are only used to save/load graphic equalizer settings, which are only used on outputs.
SAVE: To save a user preset, first press the save button, then use the touchscreen to select one of the four preset types. Next, select
a preset number to use, then press the preset name box, type in a preset name, press enter, then press Save on the touchscreen to

3 REAR PANEL FEATURES
3.1 Combo Jack Inputs, Channel 1-16
There are 16 mic/line channels that use a combo jack. The female XLR connector is for a balanced mic input, and the TRS (tipring-sleeve) phone jack is for balanced line level input. See the illustration for proper balanced or unbalanced wiring of XLR and
phone jacks. The mic preamp circuit is overridden when the phone jack is inserted. Avoid plugging or unplugging connectors when
the volume is turned up, as the resulting loud pops can damage loudspeakers.
3.2 TRS Insert, Channel 1-8
Channels 1-8 are each equipped with a single TRS jack insert point
for use with external processors. Tip=send, and ring=return. The
outgoing signal is taken right after the analog trim control, and the
return signal goes directly to the digital bus for DSP processing.
3.3 Channel 17-18, 19-20 Stereo Line Inputs
These inputs function as two stereo line level inputs or as four
mono inputs (sec. 2.7). There is no adjustable preamp on these
inputs, so a strong input signal level (0dBu) is recommended.
Plugging in only the left inputs (channels 17 or 19) sends a mono
signal to both left and right inputs.
3.4 Tape Inputs
These two RCA inputs are controlled by the tape (21-22) level
control (sec. 2.8)
3.1 - Balanced and Unbalanced connector wiring
3.5 Main Outputs
The left and right main outputs on balanced XLR male connectors are controlled by the main volume control (sec. 2.13). They are
wired in parallel with the main phone jack outputs
3.6 Main Phone Jack Outputs
The left and right main outputs on TRS phone jack connectors are wired in parallel with the main XLR outputs.
3.7 Aux 1-4 Outputs
These four phone jacks are pseudo-balanced outputs for aux1-4 (sec. 2.10). They have single-ended signal with balanced impedance.

3.9 Control Room Output
The stereo control room output uses the same signal as the main outputs and is wired using balanced phone jacks.
3.10 Tape Outputs
The main stereo bus is routed post-main-fader to the RCA tape outputs.
3.11 AC Inlet
This is used to connect the mixer to AC mains using the detachable AC cord provided with the unit.
3.12 Power Switch
This switch turns on power to the mixer. Turn-on time is about 15 seconds.
3.13 Ethernet Control Jack
The Ethernet jack is used for connecting to a network for remote iPad control (see section 9), or for using the "digiMIX Utility"
firmware update and preset manager software (see section 5.9).
3.14 USB Control Jack
The USB port can be used instead of Ethernet for the "digiMIX Utility" firmware update and preset manager. A specific USB
device driver may need to be installed on the computer first, and can be downloaded from the Ashly website (see section 5.9).
3.15 Digital Audio Module Option
Ashly offers optional field-installable Dante or multi-track USB audio modules for the digiMIX24 mixer. To install the module,
first remove the mixer from power, then remove the two screws holding the blank plate to the back panel option slot, then carefully seat the Dante-32 or USB-32 module into the two card-edge guides on either side of the module slot as shown before finally

4 GETTING STARTED
4.1 Typical Application
The above illustration shows a typical band setup with instrument and vocal inputs, four separate monitor mixes, stereo main speakers,
and remote control from a laptop. Use the following procedure to safely and quickly set up the system.
1) Plug in all inputs, outputs, and speaker cables. Leave power amplifiers turned down at first.
2) One input at a time, set input trim controls so their loudest signal peaks are around 0dBu on the input meters (sec. 2.1)
3) Assign all used inputs to the main output using the assign button. (sec. 2.38)
4) Select the main output and turn its level all the way down (sec. 2.3)
5) Turn up power amplifiers, then slowly turn up the main fader or volume control (sec. 2.13) until reaching a comfortable level.
6) Verify that all inputs can be heard in the main speakers or use the solo function (sec. 2.19). Select an input before adjusting.
14
Operating Manual - digiMIX24 Digital Mixer
7) Adjust PEQ (sec. 2.40), expander/gate (sec. 2.42), and compressor/limiter (sec. 2.43) on each input channel as needed. For
greater details and examples of how to use these functions, see sections 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4.
8) Assign the aux output(s) for all used input channels, adjusting their level to each monitor mix. (sec. 2.10 or 2.38)
9) Use the master aux level controls to set each overall monitor level (sec. 2.10)
10) Apply effects to input channels if desired. See sections 2.12, 2.44, and 4.5 for details and examples.
11) Adjust GEQ graphic equalizer for main, aux, or subgroup outputs. (sec. 2.41)
12) To create a vocal or other subgroup, follow the instructions in section 2.11, then select the subgoup to adjust the group
level using the main fader.
13) To create a DCA level or mute group for all vocals or other groups, follow instruction in section 2.16, then select the DCA
group before using the main fader or mute button.
14) Save settings as scene presets, DSP channel presets,
FX presets, or GEQ presets (sec. 2.31).
4.2 PEQ Parametric EQ
Press the PEQ button to engage the parametric EQ for the
currently selected input channel, subgroup, main output, FX,
or aux ouput. The four filters EQ1-EQ4 can be shelving or
parametric, with additional hipass and lowpass filters.
Shelving Filters: EQ1-EQ4 can be set as tuneable shelving
filters, typically used as the high and low boost/cut controls.
Press the filter <Type> image on the touchscreen to toggle
between low shelf, high shelf, or parametric peak filter.
Parametric Filters can adjust frequency, bandwidth (Q),
Figure 4.2: PEQ Parametric EQ Screen
and filter gain/cut. Think of one band of parametric EQ as a
single graphic equalizer fader where the frequency is variable,
and the bandwidth (Q) is also variable. The smaller the bandwidth, the less the audio signal on either side of the frequency center
is boost or cut, whereas a wider bandwidth produces a more audible change to the overall tone of a signal. In addition to basic
tone controls, parametric filters are ideal for eliminating problem feedback frequencies without greatly affecting the overall
sound. They are also useful for adding or removing a characteristic hot spot from microphones or for precisely compensating
for room resonance. It is well worth the time becoming proficient with parametric EQ filters, as they offer the best solution to
many EQ problems.
HPF/LPF: The highpass and lowpass filters are cut only, with adjustable frequency and slope. There are 20 different filter types
to choose from including Butterworth, Bessel, and Linwitz-Riley, with filter slopes ranging from 6db/oct to 48dB/oct. These
filters are typically used to limit bandwidth. A common application is to use an aux output to drive 70V transformer tapped
speakers that are not suited for signal below 80Hz. Set the HPF for that Aux output to 80Hz, then select the desired filter type.
Tone Control: The four EQ filters can be used as basic tone controls with tuneable frequencies, ie high, high-mid, low-mid,
and low. High and low typically use shelving filters. Press the <Flat EQ> button to restore all filters to 0dB gain, medium Q,
and default starting frequencies and filter types. A lower Q broadens the filter to have a much greater effect, while a higher Q
narrows the bandwidth and makes less of an overall difference when boost or cut.
Notch EQ for Feedback Control: To eliminate a feedback problem on a live mic input, set the PEQ flat and turn up the microphone level until it is on the edge of feedback. Then using the frequency control, sweep a narrower bandwidth (higher Q)
filter through a problem feedback area, with just a slight amount of gain on that filter, until finding the exact frequency causing
feedback. Once the feedback frequency has been identified, reduce the filter's gain until feedback is gone. Adjust the bandwidth
(Q) as narrow as possible while still eliminating feedback. Repeat with additional filters and frequencies as necessary. Finding
the problem frequency is relatively easy, but finding the best combination of minimal cut and bandwidth takes a little practice.
Notch EQ for Room Resonance: To reduce excess reverberation or boominess in a room, use the parametric filter on the main
or aux outputs. With music playing through the speakers, engage a PEQ filter on the output, then sweep the filter's frequency
with a slight boost and medium Q until you hear a disproportionate increase in the boominess of the music. This frequency is a
room resonance, and can be notched to compensate. Adjust the bandwidth and cut only as little as necessary to fix the problem.

Operating Manual - digiMIX24 Digital Mixer
4.3 GEQ Graphic EQ
The 31-band GEQ graphic equalizer is only available on the
Main, Aux, or Sub outputs. It is not available for use with
any input or FX channels.
Adjust GEQ filters by selecting and dragging them up and
down on the touchscreen, or use the up/down/left/right buttons and Adjust Parameter knob. The left/right buttons select
frequency, and the up/down buttons or Adjust Parameter
knob can be used to adjust filter boost and cut.
The GEQ is engaged when the <On> button on the touchscreen is solid green. To bypass the GEQ, press the <On>
touchscreen button again or press the EQ Bypass button
found at the right of the screen.
Figure 4.3: GEQ Graphic EQ Screen
To return all filters to 0dB, press the <Flat EQ> button on the
touchscreen and confirm, or press the Flat button to the right of the screen and confirm.
Up to 48 different GEQ filter curves can be created, saved, and recalled. Current filter settings can also be copied to another
output, subgroup, or aux using the <Copy> function, found on the touchscreen as well as having its own panel button.
4.4 Expander/Gate
A noise gate is typically used to eliminate unwanted, low
level noise from an individual input, allowing only the
louder signals to pass. An expander is used to increase the
dynamic range of a signal by lowering the quietest signals.
Threshold is the input signal level above which the gate
opens up and input signal is allowed to pass through unchanged.
Attack sets the amount of time from when the input signal
reaches threshold to when the gate actually opens up. A medium attack time helps the gating action sound more natural.
Release sets the time the gate remains open after signal
level falls back below threshold.
Figure 4.4: Expander/Gate Screen
Ratio determines how much the input signal gets attenuated
when the gate is closed. Infinite ratio completely silences the input when its signal is below the threshold, while a lower ratio
allow some signal to pass through at all times.
When used as a downward expander, the idea is to extend the signal's dynamic range by taking the quieter signals and lowering
their level even further. The lower the ratio control, the more signal below threshold will pass through. The higher the ratio, the
greater the dynamic range will be between softest and loudest signals. An infinite ratio silences all signal below the threshold.
16
Operating Manual - digiMIX24 Digital Mixer
4.5 Compressor/Limiter
This compressor/limiter has adjustable gain, threshold, attack time, release time, and ratio. The controls will only
work when the ON button is pressed. The green bar above
the ON button indicates when gain reduction is occuring.
Press the <Flat> button to clear and return all compressor/
limiter parameters to their default settings.
Threshold - This sets the input level above which gain
reduction is used to compress the signal. Threshold range
is from -30dB to +20dB.
Attack Time - The rate at which gain reduction occurs to the
input signal when it exceeds threshold, from 10ms to 150ms.
Release Time - The rate at which gain reduction ends once
the signal falls back down below threshold, from 10ms to
1000ms.
Figure 4.5: Compressor/Limiter Screen
Ratio - This sets the amount of gain reduction applied to the signal above the threshold point. Ratio is from 1:1 to infinite.
Post Gain - The post gain control adjusts the compressor/limiter output level to make up for any loss of overall level due to gain
reduction. It is typically used to match the level of compressed output with the original un-compressed input level, allowing an
easy way to compare signal with and without compression.
Compression occurs when any signal above threshold has its gain reduced by the ratio settings. For example, a ratio of 4:1 means that as
input signal increases above the threshold by 4dB, its output signal only increases by 1dB. The higher the ratio, the more gain reduction
occurs. Use a compressor to minimize vocal peaks or instrument transients, or to reduce the dynamic range of a signal.
A limiter is a compressor with infinite ratio. The input signal cannot exceed the threshold at all. A limiter is primarily used on outputs for
speaker protection or setting maximum SPL, whereas the compressor is more natural sounding and typically used on microphone inputs.

7 DANTE DIGITAL AUDIO (optional)
Dante, created by Audinate, is an Ethernet based digital AV network technology
that uses existing 100MB or 1GB network infrastructure for delivery of high
performance, high channel count audio signals. With the optional Dante-32
module installed, the digiMIX24 can be integrated into a Dante digital audio
network. The Dante-32 module can be field installed and is shipped separately
from the mixer along with installation instructions.
Dante-32 Module
7.1 Dante Controller: The Dante-32 module allows the digiMIX24 to receive and transmit audio with other Dante devices. Configuration of Dante audio
streams requires the use of Dante Controller. This free software from Audinate is
available for both Windows® and Mac®. Dante Controller uses a simple matrix
(shown at right) to connect Dante audio receivers with transmitters. Any Dante
transmitter channel can be assigned to any DigiMix receiver channel (1-24). Note
that when the Dante-32 module is installed, it must always be the master clock.
7.2 Dante Virtual Soundcard (not shown): The Dante Virtual Soundcard, purchased separately from Audinate, allows a Windows and Mac computer to act as a Dante audio source. Any sound the computer can generate
(background music, announcements, VoIP sessions, etc.) can be routed to a
Dante receiver via the Dante controller.
7.3 Digital Input Assign: Press the <Digital - In> button below the
touchscreen to open the Digital Input Assign window. Any of the mixer's 24
inputs channels can be assigned as exclusive Dante inputs by first selecting an
7.1: Dante-32 Controller
input channel from within this window, then pressing it again so that it says
"On" and the button turns green. When an input channel is selected for Dante,
the mic/line preamp for that channel becomes disabled. Digital inputs are pre-DSP, pre-fader.
Press the <Channel Mapping> touchscreen button to view the fixed ASIO/Dante input channel mapping (see 7.3a below). These
mappings cannot be changed, use the Dante Controller matrix to assign Dante outputs (transmitter) to digiMIX24 inputs (receiver).

8 USB-32 DIGITAL AUDIO (optional)
Ashly offers an optional, field-installable 32 channel USB digital audio module for
the digiMIX24 for interfacing with other multi-track USB audio devices. Typical
applications include multitrack recording from the mixer to a USB audio device,
or playback of pre-recorded music from a USB audio device. One particularly
useful application is to record a band live onto a multi-track DAW (digital audio
workstation), then play it back through the mixer later for a "virtual" soundcheck
before the musicians arrive. Visit the Ashly website to view the Ashly application
note digiMIX-AN-2 for virtual soundcheck details.
USB-32 Module
8.1 USB-32 Device Driver - Purchase the USB-32 audio interface module from an Ashly dealer and install in the digiMIX24 mixer
as instructed in section 3.15. An ASIO device driver is required for Windows computers but not for Mac. Ashly provides a Windows
USB multi-channel device driver that can be downloaded from the Ashly website digiMIX24 product page. Install the device driver on
the PC before connecting it to the digiMIX24. The device driver will appear as an "ASIO" type device in the audio software's device
list. Complete USB-32 device driver installation instructions are found in the Ashly digiMIX24 AN-2 application note
8.2 DAW Hardware Configuration - The digiMIX24 cannot re-configure it's internal channel mapping, it is hard-coded into
the mixer (see illustrations 7.3a and 7.4a). You must have a working knowledge of your specific DAW hardware and software for proper
configuration of channel mapping, recording, and playback properties.
8.3 USB-32 Channel Assignment - Assign digiMIX24 inputs and outputs for USB-32 digital audio the same way as you would
for Dante (see sections 7.3 and 7.4). USB-32 digital audio inputs to the mixer are pre-DSP and pre-fader. USB-32 digital audio outputs
from the mixer are post-DSP but still pre-fader.

9 iPAD REMOTE CONTROL
A free remote control iPad app called "Ashly digiMIX" is available from the
iTunes App Store. Most mixer touchscreen controls are duplicated on the app
for wireless remote control of the mixer including EZ-Mode. Note: Only one
iPad at a time can be used to control the mixer.
9.1 iPad Setup steps:
9.1a) Configure the iPad Wi-Fi to be on the same network subnet as the mixer
9.1b) Download, install and launch the Ashly digiMIX app with the mixer turned
on and connected to the network.
9.1c) digiMIX app IP address selection
9.1c) On startup, the digiMIX app displays a device list of
available IP addresses for any mixer(s) on the network. Select
an IP address and press <Connect>.
9.1d) In the resulting mixer display, a green rectangle in the upper
left corner indicates that the app is connected to a live mixer. It
turns grey if the network connection is lost. If it is grey, press it
to return to the Device List used in step #9.1c. Once re-connected,
the iPad will display the same screen as the mixer. Changes to
either device will result in an immediate change to the other device.
9.1e) To access the app control screens for Assign, Channel, PEQ,
Expander/Gate, or Compressor/Limiter functions on the currently
selected channel, press the "PEQ" box near the upper left corner
of the mixer mode screen as shown in the illustration to the right.
9.1f) To access EZ Mode or other system functions from the app
control surface, press the <System> button while in any of the
control screens mentioned above in step #9.1e.
9.1d & 9.1e) digiMIX app Mixer Mode Display
9.2 iPad EZ Mode:
EZ Mode is offered on the app in two different configurations for
simplified wireless remote control of the mixer's DCA groups,
Aux master outputs, Subgroup outputs, Tape and USB input levels,
and Main output. The EZ Mode interface is exactly the same as
found on the digiMIX24 touchscreen. See section 6 for complete
EZ Mode details. Enter EZ Mode on the app via the system page
as described in step #9.1f above.
9.3 iPad EZ-Mode Password Protection and feature-lock:
EZ-Mode in the app will always use the same password as the
mixer. *Password protection can be set from either device, and
passwords are case sensitive.
*Note the following important EZ-Mode password entry details:
1) On the digiMIX24 mixer, password entry uses a pop-up
keyboard that always defaults to lower-case letters.
2) On the app, the EZ-Mode password keyboard also
defaults to lower case letters. The upper-case key must be pressed
each time an upper case letter is desired. It is not a true caps-lock.
Passwords between the mixer and the app's EZ-Mode must match
exactly.

10 TROUBLESHOOTING
10.1 No sound
Is the mic/line input cable plugged in and wired properly? If the mic is a condenser mic, is phantom power on? Is there activity
on the input LED meter? Is the input muted or its fader turned down? Is the input assigned or sent to the proper output? Is the
output turned down or muted? Are the power amps off or their level controls turned down? Is the input assigned to a subgroup or
DCA which is muted or turned down? Are the HPF or LPF filters properly set in the PEQ section to allow the desired passband?
Is the noise gate engaged and its threshold set so high that it always shuts off the signal?
10.2 Distorted sound
Is the input LED Clip light on? If so, turn down the input source or reduce the input trim control until the input LED signal
peaks between 0-4 on the input meter bar. If there is still distortion, is the input fader too high? Is the Comp/Limiter engaged
and its gain control set too high? Does a PEQ or GEQ filter have too much boost?
10.3 Excessive hiss
Hiss is caused by insufficient gain on the input stages and too much gain in the output stage. Be sure to have a strong input
signal, adjusting the input trim control so the signal peaks are between 0 and 4 on the input LED meter bar.
10.4 Control does nothing
Is the desired input, output, or FX selected? If an expander/gate or comp/limiter control does not work, is the function turned
ON? If the PEQ or GEQ controls do nothing, is the function turned on or is the EQ Bypass button lit up?
10.5 No sound in headphones when using solo button
Are the headphones turned down? If the PFL button is pressed, is there sufficient input signal? PFL means "pre-fader listen", so
the position of that channel's fader will not affect solo. If PFL is off, is the channel fader turned down? If the input is assigned
to a DCA or subgroup, is the DCA or subgroup turned down or muted?
10.6 FX not working
Three things are necessary for an FX to work properly.
1) FX must be properly defined. Press FX1 or FX2 to define, edit, or load an effect. Make sure the <Wet-Dry> mix control is properly set.
2) Inputs must have their signal sent to the FX1 or FX2 bus. Select an input and use the <Assign> function to send pre or postfader signal to the FX bus using the touchscreen FX1 or FX2 controls.
3) FX1 and FX2 must be assigned to main, subgroup, or aux outputs. Select the FX1 or FX2. then press the Assign button to
send it to the main, subgoup, or aux outputs.
10.7 iPad digiMIX app troubleshooting
1) There are no IP addresses in my Device List. Is the mixer turned on and properly connected to the same network that the
wifi router is connected to? Is the iPad's wifi turned on? The app may have timed out, so refresh the device list by first pressing
"Demo", then press the small grey box in the upper left corner of the resulting mixer screen to return to the startup page. This
causes the app to re-discover all online mixers and display the IP address.
2) The app won't control the mixer. Is there more than one mixer on the network? Several mixers can be connected to the
same network for remote iPad control, however the digiMIX app can only connect to one mixer at a time. Make sure you are
connected to the right mixer. On start-up, the digiMIX app discovers and lists all available mixers by their IP address. Select an IP
address from the Device List and press "Connect" to control that mixer. Once connected, the app shows a green box in the upper
left corner. A grey box means the connection has been lost. To control a different mixer, the app must be closed and re-launched.
3) Can I use more than on iPad on one mixer? Only one iPad at a time can be used with a mixer. If a second iPad connects
with that mixer, it takes over control. The last iPad connected always has control.
