Yes, even the manual might say something about this: almost nobody plays as loud in a soundcheck as they do once the music starts for real.

With the latest firmware and the previous one, I have an issue that has just popped up a couple of weeks ago.... it's like the HTML server is misbehaving. I've seen the behavior on iPad Safari and Chrome and on Android Chrome.

Some times the backing graphics are missing and are just black. Sometimes the only visible part of a channel is the level LED. Switching orientation seems to accelerate the problems.

Sometimes error messages pop up about trying to get page properties that are null. Sometimes a big message pops up about the browser not supporting WebSockets and the whole GUI is gone.

Sometimes refreshing the page fixes things for a while... sometimes it doesn't.

Has anyone else been having problems like these?

I'm no longer sure it is a problem on Android. Once the iOS device stopped interacting with it I think the android devices I tried worked. So now I suspect iOS 12.0.x, which I updated to this week. Things worked fine with 11.4.1. Naturally you can restore back to 11.4.1 now.

If you're reading this and haven't already updated to 12, I'd wait. If you did update to iOS 12 and it is working for you ui12/16, please let me know!

Haven't noticed this on Android, but OS and/or browser updates would generally seem more of a risk to break a HTML based control app forcing an update to the HTML firmware to get it functioning correctly again.

I continue to be sceptical with the whole HTML browser interface concept. While, in theory, it is tremendously device-independent, it does appear to have a degree of fragility and dependence on subtle features within each device/browser...

Update: I have two of the same model iPads (Air 1, Wi-Fi) connected at the same time. One with 12.0.1 and one with 10.x... and they behave differently. The problem is apparently with iOS 12. Hold off on that update until there is a new firmware to support iOS 12 correctly.

Can walwart be put inside the Ui12 also?

The UI12 is fairly small, so I'd be surprised if there was room for the PSU inside. Though, depending on how creative you got, it might be possible.

Why not open it up and take a look at how much space there is?

Just tape or cable-tie it to the outside, under the bracket on the right.

I assume you're responding to my message #2393 on Page 80 here?

I seem to recall seeing a photo of the interior of the Ui12 here, and it had plenty of space there as well. The 16 is just wider, but both cans are mainly air inside. Not sure if those convenient standoffs are there in the 12, but I could see sticking some square aluminum tubing bits down with epoxy and attaching a base (such as the 1/8" fiberglass sheet I used) with sheetmetal screws to allow airflow around the PS. I found a two-wire IEC C-13 cable to maintain the ungrounded design, because I wasn't sure about trying to ground the third prong without knowing how the grounds were wired in the Ui.

Your basic connections are: connecting the two wires from the back of the C14 receptacle to the AC (original wall plug) side of the wall wart, then the output side of the wall wart to the on/off switch with filter intact, cutting or coiling the cables for tidiness, and tying down the wall wart on the standoffs.

I used mine for countless gigs and rehearsals after putting the PS inside and never had a hint of an overheating issue. Should you ever forget your C13 cable, they are ubiquitous; computers, amps, monitors. The third prong in a three-wire cable should be superfluous when connected to nothing.

UI16 Update: Small gig/backup role

I've had a Ui24R for several years now, and it's wonderful. But it is big in its five-unit rack bag with power conditioner. I thought I would sell my Ui16 after a while, but I realized it probably wouldn't fetch much when new ones remained so cheap, so I hung onto it.

I've had a couple of occasions where I needed a mixer in two different places close together in time, and it was a godsend then.

Recently, we restarted our weekly Open Mic at a new venue's outdoor patio, after an 18-month covid-19 hiatus, and I decided to try dusting off the 16 for that small gig. I carry it in an Odyssey bag designed for Chauvet's small dmx controllers. It's a perfect fit for the Ui16, my Netgear WNDR3400 MkIII router, its power supply, a couple of Ethernet cables, and the two-wire IEC C13 cable for my internalized Ui16 power supply. Much easier to tote around than the 24 in its case.

It's working perfectly, more than enough channels for Open Mic. It really is a suitable backup if you don't run out of channels. I had to remember the preamp limitations and lose one parameter in the eq's as well as multitrack recording, but otherwise, same as it ever was.

The key to living with a Ui12/16 is a solid external router, disabling the hotspot and wi-fi connection options, and keeping input gain at +30db or less with no phantom power.

Side note; the recorder can save the current recording when it is shut down, or locks up.

My unit was rack mounted to my rack case, but did not have any ground on those rails.
After the gig I removed my ui16 and put it on the bench to look more closely at the unit and its grounding.
I found that all of the inputs and outputs do ground to the chassis, but as you know the PSU does not have a ground on it.
I removed the rack ears and scrapped the paint off of a section around one of the screws on each side to have better ground transfer to the rack ears.
I then moved my rack mount power strip to be on the same rails as the ui16 mixer. I now have ground to my main power cable that comes out of my rack case.
The reason I looked at the grounding issue to begin with was that my suspicion was that it took a static hit, and locked up at the end of the gig and I believe that I should not have that issue going forward.
I will have another gig to try this next weekend, and hopefully all will be good.

Hi Gerry,

May I know if it happens to be less noisy after earthing the ui16?

Hi,

I think my dsp chip ADSP-21489 is dead it becomes very hot just after power on unit.

Do you know if there is a custom soundcraft firmware inside or I can buy a new chip and replace the bad one out of the box ?

Sorry fog my bad english I am french.

Thank you
