Question about Stanton Sa3 DJ Mixer With Eq System

Open Question

Spotty sound from #1 channel on stanton sa 3 mixer

I have only had this mixer for about 18 months and probably only played like...10-12 gigs with it, but now when i fade left the sound may or may not come in, or may be static-y or delayed.

i called Advanced Musical Electronics and they said it would probably run about $150 to fix it and for that price maybe I should buy a new mixer.

Any ideas? thanks,
a.j.

SOURCE: Half the signal only through left speaker

Try the switch in the other position and see if that fixes the problem. some turntables had a phono level that is different than a standard rca line level input. Also try a different cable if the rca is not hardwired in to the turntable. The cable could be bad. If worse comes to worse upgrade to another amplifier or tuner that has a separate phono input. hope that helps.

Testimonial: "thanks a lot i've tried the switch in both positions but it could easily be the cable which is not hard wired!"

You might have a preamplifier or mixer problem in your system that's unrelated to the turntable.

SOURCE: I have a T62 Stanton

Is it connected to a "PHONO" input or something not labeled explicitly for PHONO?

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive.Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

eBay always has some... http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3984.m570.l1311&_nkw=phono+preamp&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Stanton str-150 - poor sound from left deck


Just make sure all your connections are clean , your tt in horizontal and take a new record, set the azimututh/anti-skate right , use the channel of the deck which works correct if it doesn't you have to measure the voltage coming from the cable, since i don't believe it's the mixer. But pls describe a poor sound, that doesn't say a lot. My tables often make a poor crappy sound , with channels falling out, but that's due to dust on the vinyl and stylus(needle) or a poor connection with my sme connector and then i clean both. Does is crackle and move the rca cable when you're playing, often is that stuck , but if it's on both channels , which sometimes is hard to hear in a little room. It can't be the mixer, cause i told you to test it on the other, good soudinding mixer input. So then it can be your groundwire, There ain't much more. Good tonar, clean sme connector, clean record(take the needle from the right working table). Check if the pins in the sme connector move smoothly.
Goodluck

I have a Static noise coming from the right channel of my mixer. I hear it coming out the right speaker as well as the right ear of my headphones (jack). How can I fix this?


That sounds like a bad connection but it can also indicate your mixer has a problem. If it occurs on all channels it is the mixer, if only one then the problem is in the input. Check your cables, they are a big culprut in problems like this.

Hi im sorry if this sounds a little dumb!!! last weekend while i was on a gig i tried to hook up my lap top to my mackie mixer (cfx12) but i wasnt able to get winamp to play through it, which channels...


With a stereo splitter cable that takes the stereo 1/8 plug of the computer into two RCA plugs you could go into the "Tape Input" of the mixer... OR take a 1/8 stereo splitter cable from the PC splitting to a pair of 1/4 inch plugs go into one of the 4 stereo input pairs on the mixer... like 7 and 8 or 9 and 10 for example.

All of a sudden my Echo Indigo DJ soundcard will play both virtual CD players on my PCDJ software on one channel. For a while, I had cd 1 on one channel and cd2 on the other. I am using a pig tail plug...


I can run audio on 3 separate channels/outputs of my laptop

I use Tricerasoft Swift Elite DJ software but the areas you need to look at for troubleshooting are probably similar:

1) check the (PCDJ) software settings for selecting the channel outputs of your Indigo DJ on each deck/ player. NOTE: 1/2 and 5/6 are the same physical port (headphone port), while 3/4 and 7/8 are also shared on the Line Out port. So make sure you use for eg. one player uses 1/2, and the other player uses 3/4 ONLY IF you want them running out to separate channels on the mixer

I personally run both my decks off the same channel, ie 3/4 so that my software can do the mixing for me. My mixer only acts as an master control device where everything else connects

2) Make sure you check your IndigoDJ Console (installed to the Windows Start menu under Echo Audio, Indigo DJ), if you have any conflicts or if for some reason one particular channel pair gets inadvertently muted, resulting in no sound coming from the port.

3) I also use my onboad sound card (typically for previewing music or for an auxillary output). This is obviously controlled by the Operating system... in Windows is is through the Sound properties, default sound device. I recommend NOT using Indigo DJ as a default sound card -- but that is a personal preference.

So in this way you actually have 3 outputs for sound

As far as cabling is concerned, it depends on what you are connecting to. I use a 1/8 (mini computer) jack to 1/4 whcih then plugs into a direct box (eleminates any static hum etc), then from the DI box using an XLR cable to the mixer. Your setup may be slightly different.

Hope this helps!
