Q

I have a Behringer XAir xr18 and a MacPro 2016. How do I connect my XR18 to my laptop? Also, can I just work off the built-in WiFi from the xr18 for my performers (6)? I’m a novice so please keep the answer simple. Thanks, Hue

Hi!
You need to use a separate dedicated WiFi router. Plan to invest $150 to $300 for a really good one and you can run Audiofusion and the XR-18 on the same router.
Connect the Mac directly to the WiFi router by ethernet cable. Connect the XR-18 to the same router by another ethernet cable. Then connect the XR-18 to the Mac by USB. It is the USB that passes audio from the XR-18 to the Mac. SoundCaster will automatically detect all the channels from the Behringer. Enable 16 or less to include in the mix. SoundCaster will broadcast the audio over Wi-fi to the Performers.

Q

I want to try it first before buying

Hi!
Your question came through as anonymous. Send me an email at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com and I can let you know as our new 'Demo Mode' is available next week.

Q

Any plan to add input channels anytime soon? 16 is too few! Lol

We do plan to release, later, a version of the software that will broadcast more channels. send me an email to leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com and let me know how many channels you would like to see. How many do you really use and do you think your musicians will really want to mix them all themselves?
Thanks,
Brandon

Q

We have an iMac that will be driving pro presenter. Can this iMac simultaneously run sound caster or does it need to be dedicated to soundcaster?


Audiofusion responded on 09/16/2018
A

Yes! You should be able to run it on the same machine. You will want to use the system with our Director app since SoundCaster will be running in the background behind propresenter.

Q

Is there any way to make Soundcaster work with the Touchmix 16?


Audiofusion responded on 09/16/2018
A

You would need to run the instrument signals into an audio interface of some kind in order to convert the analog signals to digital. How many inputs do you typically use? Send me a note at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com

Q

Is the system compatible with QSC's Touchmix series?


Audiofusion responded on 09/10/2018
A

Only directly compatible with the TouchMix 30. The 30 has multi channel audio out from the USB. The smaller TouchMix mixers have only L/R stereo from the USB out.

Q

When the mixer has 24 channels+, can each musician select their 16 channels to mix or is there a universal 16 channels selected in Soundcaster for every user?


Audiofusion responded on 09/04/2018
A

SoundCaster will recognize all 24 but will have to enable 16 or less. SoundCaster will broadcast the first 16 that are enabled and it is universal. All Performers hear and control the same 16. Send me a note at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com and let me know what kind of console you have.

Q

Hola mi nombre es Josue me gustaría saber si agrega algo de latencia y si funciona con una Behringer x32 Producer?? saludos... mi correo cualquier cosa soundline2010@gmail.com

Hello Josue,
Our system does add latency. Some musicians with a sensitive ear will be able to hear it but 99% of our users find it to be very usable for live performance. I have been using the software myself every week for more than two years with great success. It will work very well with the X32 Producer. Simply connect by USB and SoundCaster will recognize all 32 channels available from the console. Choose 16 or less to include in the mix. We hope you will give it a try for yourself.

Q

1: What are the bandwidth requirements per-client?
2: Is there any form of limiter built-in to protect hearing? Most systems have a user adjustable hard limiter, or something like that.
3: How is the audio sent? Is it sent as one stream to a device? Or multicast/broadcast each stream and the devices mix them client side? This will obviously affect the first question.

Hi Caleb,
The bandwidth requirements vary depending on the number of channels being broadcast. We recommend establishing a LAN dedicated just for the system and not connected to the internet. We've been successful connecting 12 musicians with a good $300 Wi-Fi AP like the Linksys AC5400 or the ASUS RT-AC5300 running on the 5 GHz band.
We do not currently have a limiter built in but that is on our roadmap as a feature that will roll out for free along with plans for EQ/FX etc.
Each audio stream is broadcast separately where it is mixed on the devices.
Feel free to send me an email at leafblad@audiofusionsystems.com with any questions you may have.
I see VST Productions is an A/V company. We would love to work with you to recommend Audio Fusion for the installations you specify.
Thanks,
Brandon
