Euphonix MC Mix EuCon crashes

Postby davidgleeson » Fri Mar 18, 2011 03:40

running 2 x Euphonix MCMix fader packs on fresh install of Windows 7 and latest Pyramix 7.

could use some help with two problems:

- MC Mixers ocassionally crash while in record. By crash, I mean they lose communication and revert to Euphonix logo on their displays. Only way to get faders back is to restart Pyramix. Tried power cycling the switch/hub - this didn't revive the faders but Pyramix did report communication loss error. Tried to power cycle the MC Mixers, but their power buttons were inactive, as though the units themselves had crashed. Haven't managed to reproduce this outside session.

- is there a way to save & recall fader positions while in record? problem is recording concerts with several different setups where balances worked out during soundcheck need to be recalled during show. Trouble is, Pyramix will not allow mixer snapshot recall during record. Any workarounds? I don't suppose the MC Mix has an autonomous way of doing this (ie without referring to Pyramix)?

MC Mix 1.44 protocol 1.0
Pyramix 7.0.10 service pack 2
Windows 7 (32bit) professional service pack 1
Intel Core I7 CPU 860
Cisco/Linksys SD208 8 port 10/100 switch

problem just happened again while fiddling with EQ parameters (which appears to have nothing to do with the problem).

this time we noticed EuCon icon was missing from taskbar.

rebooting Eucon from Start menu has brought MC Mixers back online without interrupting record.

hopefully this can be repeated.

tried using Netgear switch instead of Linksys.

still getting crashes every hour or so.

can recover without losing session data (or record) by relaunching EuCon, but it's a major pain.

Hi, you should contact Euphonix/AVID team about this. Basicly they quickly react with such bugreports...
It seems that the problem is on their side.

same issue here with 7sp3 and winxp.
It has even brought down pyramix with it.
Router is a netgear (same as found inside the tango FWIW)
With a Dovado router I have had no problems so far, but I have not logged enough hours to be sure if it solves the issue
