Get sound through a Behringer 1204FX mixer & FCA202 interface

I have:

a) 2 AKG 1000S microphones (they seem to be working, the LED react to sound, barely, [power & phantom power light {+48 V} are lit])

b) plugged into inputs numbered 1 & 2 of a Behringer Xenyx 1204FX mixer (maybe the problem is there?,)

c) XLR to phono plug cables which run from the MAIN OUTPUTS of the

d) XENIX 1204FX mixer to a

e) FCA202 Firewire audio interface (single firewire cable maybe the problem?) which runs to my

f) MacBook Pro firewire interface, (only has one firewire interface,)

which I want to use with GarageBand to get a second person recorded on my podcast for interviews co-host, etc.

No luck, no joy,

What don't I know about this setup to get it to work?

Pointers to schematics would be appreciated as well.

Where are the trim controls set?
Those mics use both phantom and battery power; are the mic switches set to phantom?
Try using the CD/Tape outputs to the FCA202

What i need to conect my mixer on my pc


You need two cables to connect your L/R line output from your mixer at the two inputs of FCA202 (the numbered 1,2) and one firewire cable to connect from FCA202 to your pc's firewire port.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

I cant make on microphone go thru my amp mixer


It's obvious that there is a misunderstanding. Your FCA202 is designed to get line level inputs (not microphone level) and convert the signal to digital format for the computer to "undestand", it's working like an audio card. So in your case all you need is a microphone preamplifier to pass the signal from your mic to FCA202, or an audio mixer to do that.

Behringer F-CONTROL AUDIO... Problem:


I had a similar problem where as I could use the mic no problem at all but couldn't hear anything through the headphones. The simple solution was to disable the driver for my internal soundcard. It took me 48 hours to work it out! Good luck.

Low audio input


You need to use a mic preamp or a mixer with a mic preamp built in. The inputs on the FCA202 are line level and they won't work with a mic directly.
