Hi,
Has this happened? I’m holding back on buying an xmon for monitoring only because of this.
Thanks

We showed this at the NAB show last week. The release is now 19.5 due in a few weeks.

Will this also work with an xmon or only with the MTRX?

It will work with any EUCON monitoring, MTRX, XMON, PT Master Fader, Nuendo, Cubase, Pyramix, SMP2(if anyone is still using it)

I finally tried to have a crack at getting this running with an old blue X-Mon (our d-command died, and have been hoping to get this into action).

I followed the guide posted on the DUC here...
http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=400839

No luck, so checked our old Xmon cable and noticed Pin 11, 12, 3 and 4 had no through continuity, which seemed at odds to this guide. I then found this post on Gearslutz....

https://www.gearslutz.com/board/high...rol-cable.html

This seems to confirm my thoughts, and I tried adjusting the Midi In and Out pins to 10 & 2, and 9 & 1. I then had MIDI information in and out of the X-Mon which I could see flashing when the iPad app was adjusting signals, BUT...

The X-Mon remained frozen on Mute, and could not unmute through any means (front button, the apple XMON app, or the iPad.)

I am a bit stuck about what to do here, so wanted to ensure that the Blue X-Mon is indeed supported, if there is any things to be aware of regarding pin layout discrepancy or other things to be aware of.

Thanks for your help! My Apogee Symphony just went down today as I was having a crack at this, so I am now without and volume control, so any advice would be amazing.

Best,
Matt

It should work, the breakout cable on that DUC post is correct.

Ill look into it again on Monday, can you think of any reason why my old Xmon cable had no continuity on pins 11 - 11, 12 - 12, 3 - 3, 4 - 4.

Thanks for the reply!

Assign tab in Eucontrol.
Put the XMon application in focus and then lock "Monitor and Control Room" on the Assign tab.
