• Hi Andy

    You can fit an ME-U with an M-WAVES-V2 card. This provides a connection to a 48 kHz Waves Soundgrid network.

    Waves software running on a PC or MAC can then configure the audio routing to this card and hence the connected ME personal mixers. Channel names and stereo links can be set using the ME-U web interface, as you suggest.

    Hope this…[Read more]

  • Hi Luuk

    Sorry you’re having problems. As far as I can see, there haven’t been any changes to the Dx protocol itself. The units will update in V1.8 due to a small change to how we determine whether the Ethernet link is up/down, allowing DX disconnection to work properly when using Ethernet switches. If you have an audio sync problem then I don’t…[Read more]

  • Hi Jake

    I wouldn’t have thought that a simple Ethernet switch like that would cause problems with the Dante network. The ME-U itself doesn’t know anything about Dante, it’s just an option card that feeds the ME-U with audio signals, so there shouldn’t be any compatibility issues in that respect.

    Were you able to confirm that the ME-U itself…[Read more]

  • Hi Guys

    It sounds like you’ve got some invalid data in the stereo settings in the ME-U somehow.

    In the ME-U web interface, try turning all the ‘Stereo’ settings on, saving, then turning them all off, saving, before finally setting them as you need in your application.

    Hope this helps

  • Hi Jake

    The Aux input will work when there is no Cat5 connection, this is normal. If you are seeing metering but no audio when connected to the ME-U, this indicates that the ME-1 unit audio PLL is not locked, so there could be a clocking problem somewhere in the system.

    If you go into the ME-U web setup page, is it showing a tick next to “Source…[Read more]

  • If an SLink port detects a Gigabit connection, it will assume a GigaACE device; this includes your Gigabit switch. A 100 megabit switch should work properly; alternatively you could try connecting the SLink port to the switch using an Ethernet cable with only pairs 1 and 2 (pins 1,2,3,6 in the RJ45 plug) connected, preventing a Gigabit link from…[Read more]

  • Hi Ray

    Sorry that you’re seeing issues.

    My first thought is that perhaps the dLive is trying to sync from the UB-MADI, but the UB-MADI is itself trying to sync from the dLive, creating a loop where the system is always chasing its own tail. I wonder what happens if you simply set the dLive to be clock master? It seems unusual to source the audio…[Read more]

    Hi joefi

    The supported way to link these two consoles while using an audio rack would be to buy an SLink card for the SQ, so that you can connect the two consoles using one SLink port, and your AB168 using the other. The SLink card isn’t actually available yet, but I believe that it is coming ‘soon’.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Alan

    Regarding Dante, the Brooklyn card has I think 3 ‘versions’ within it. 4.0.4.19 is the version of the software running on the card, whereas we name the download after the FPGA version, which is 4.0.3.7. We get confused by this ourselves. The latest version of the update manager is now correctly linked as well, thank you for spotting this…[Read more]

    Hi Liquid

    The download links for the latest firmware in the ‘Software’ page seem to be messed up. I’ll try to find out what has happened.

    Apologies

  • I think this is working as intended. From the user guide, “The Phantom Power indicator detects voltage at the socket whether supplied by the AB168 or received from an external source”.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Eric

    Yes, the scenario you described should work as you expect. If you’re getting strange behavior, one suggestion would be to re-power the ME-500 after setting up the patching.

    When I said about odd-even channels, you’re right that this must be the case on the Qu, but it’s also important to patch these odd-even Qu input channel pairs to…[Read more]

  • Hi lightingman117

    If you were to use Dante or Waves in the SQ Option Card port, this would be able to run in 48 kHz mode, and connect to a ME-U with an appropriate card fitted. You could also use an SLink Option Card in the Option Card port, and directly connect to the ME system with that. That’s all I can think of right now. The advantage of…[Read more]

  • Hi lightingman117

    I’ll try to answer the questions that I can for you.

    Does the ME1/500 output provide pass-thru POE?

    No. The PoE standard used can only supply enough power for one ME unit.

    Can you daisychain ME1/500’s with POE injectors?

    Yes.

    When using DX168; what would the configuration look like that would create ME1/500 c…

  • Hi Eric

    Firstly, yes, you should be able to mix up to 16 stereo channels.

    I think the issue here is that stereo channels must occupy odd-even channel pairs (1-2, 3-4, 5-6, etc). For this to work, the source channel must be set as a stereo pair – see page 31 of the user guide. Now, if you want to send stereo channel GTR 1 to ME, the left and…[Read more]
