So I am using a San Disk uhs-i card.

Formatted it with the app suggested here.

Did a speed test o the desk 32SX III

Armed a track

recorded material

Set all channels to play from SD

Silence - nothing!

Checked card data in Capture and its all there?

What am I doing wrong?

Did you "save & close" your session? Also a re-insert of the SD card and reload of the project might be needed (also load the Mix!). Otherwise everything seems to be ok... ;-)

Thanks for the suggestions, yes I did save and close.

Is this something you do, 'reinsert' to get it working?

Thanks

I think this procedure can be helpful, because Capture in the mixer seems to sometimes not know where to start and where to end. Taking the SD card out, repowering the mixer and inserting the card moves things to a new/fresh starting point. I am not using SD cards for recording single tracks, only for recording complete concerts and the next step in my workflow is to transfer the audio files to my computer and load the recording session or just the audio files in Capture. After the file transfer the SD cards are always formatted new.

You are sure that your channels are set to SD card as input source?

Yes definitely, SD is selected, I have also reset all inputs, just in case.

Also, this is the 3rd SD card I have tried.

Then I think it's time to log a support ticket. There might be something wrong with the SD card reader.

Did you not read my initial post.

I did all that.

Yes I’d say at this stage it’s faulty.

Very frustrating, have to say, as it’s brand new

I also don't understand this "best answer" when yu say that you have done everything as written, so log a ticket and ask Support....!

By the way, Supoort asks what the size/capacity of your card is. ;-)

Did a factory reset and its now working.

I have no idea, what it was, before the master reset, I reset the I/O and that did not work either.

Thanks all for suggestions, was very helpful.

Cheers.

I just got my 32S yesterday and I can't record anything to SD either. The SD passes all the tests and tells me its ready for 10 tracks. I assign them and it acts like its recording but no playback. Also, the rewind is slow. Something is wrong. I've never read a manuel as much as this one, watched the videos and have no idea except to send the whole thing back as the record to SD feature was the main reason I bought this.
