X32 Theatre Control

Quick start guide

Before starting, make sure you have...
Create a new show, and you will be presented with the show setup screen...

Time to add the first cue! The line checks cue 0 is fixed: it unassigns all DCAs and sets channels to their default position, default FX, and default EQ profile. In cue 1 you can assign channels to DCAs...


Now you can add some more cues by inserting a new blank cue or cloning the existing cue. Tip: use Command/Ctrl+D to fill down DCA assignments like a spreadsheet.

Once you have some cues you can connect to a console to run them. Connect your computer and console to the same network and set IP addresses accordingly (as if using the standard X32-Edit software). It is strongly recommended to use a wired Ethernet connection between the computer and console, a WiFi connection is not suitable. WiFi connections impose additional network latency which delays cue execution in X32TC, not to mention the usual risks of interference and dropouts which could disrupt a show.


After connecting up the console, open console setup in X32TC and it should be discovered automatically. Select the console and click OK.
Channels will now be configured with scribble strip labels and the bottom-right assign button will advance through cues. Congratulations, you've set up a show!

If you're not familiar with control group mixing, have a look at some of these videos to see how you can mix the show.


But... after a few seconds all the scribble strips turned blue?! This is caused by automatic channel monitoring, see the feature guide for more information...
