Question about Korg Mini Kp Kaoss Pad

2 Answers

Connection problem I have a DJM600 mixer, 2X SL1210's running through channels 3 & 4 with 2x CDJ1000 Mk3's attached to channels 1 & 2 - all working fine. Just purchased a Kaoss pad 3, linked it through the send and return 1/4 jacks on the mixer to the send and return phono connections on the Kp3. Can not get the effects to run over the master??. Kp3 is recieving a signal as the 'peak' meter will pass from green to orange to red when turning up the gain on the Kp3, just no effect applied on the out-field. I have tried with the effects dial on the mixer set too send/return and channel select on the mixer set to master and all conbinations in-between..still no joy..... at all!!! Best i've had (un-able to remember the settings at the time) was the out field playing (including Kp3 selected effect) only when i was touching the pad on the Kp3 (leaving no sound when removing my finger). Now am reduced to filling out and posting help emails, too people i dont even know - while drinking cans of beer. Not quite the way i had planned, but i have beer i surpose.... it's not all bad......... Any help (at all) lovingly taken........or it's sledge hammer time!!!

The best thing i can suggest is hook the korg unit to the master output of the mixer and run directly to the speakers or CD burner your mixer was connected to you should get sound this way the other option is to hook it to the one CD player (most djs use two devices on each CD unit or the one unit on the master output from mixer
hope i helped in some way i personally use the efx-1000 by pioneer

on most mixers, there is a master control slider..if its on zero you wont get anything..raise it slowly to a desired level..it should have something then if not take it to a music store and let them educate you on how and where most things are and what they do..they can help you with its operation..

Make sure that you have enable the main monitor volume at the end of the mixer. They are labeled AUX1 and AUX2 as well located under the last channel of the mixer. If those are on 0 your monitors won't work

We have a pmp6000 mixer hooked up to our ep 4000 and b1800 and b2520,it seems we can only hook up the amp to the mixer into either mono's 1 and 2 or the main 2 however not in main 1 with full...


MAKE SURE the cables you plug into 1/4 inch mains are TRS plugs, and not mono cables (TS). The main output 1/4 inch jacks are TRS balanced outputs and if you plug mono (TS) cables that shorts out the ring connector reducing the power by 6 Db. USE ONLY TRS balanced cables for interconnects !!!! Also read my tip on Fixya regarding PMP mixers. If you use 1/4 inch SPEAKER cables or adapters, if you short the SLEEVE of channel A output to ground you can pop the channel A amp. The TIP of channel B is the hot BUT the SLEEVE of channel A is the HOT. The ttip I posted explains why this is and it isn't mention in the Behringer documentation.

Hi i have 2x ev sx300 speakers (speakon) and 2x peavey es 315 (1/4 jack) can i daisy chain the ev's from channel a and the peavey's from channel B (all speakers are 8 ohm). Also should speakon...


Yes, you can put two 8 ohm speakers daisy chain per side MAX. The Speakon should have ONLY two wires on the +1 and -1 terminals unless you are using bridged mode which is NOT applicable in your configuration of speakers. Also be careful is you use any 1/4 inch speaker plugs in the sytem as the SLEEVE, not the TIP of channel A is the "hot" lead... get this to ground someplace and goodbye amp.

None of the channels work. Most of the LED lights work. Im going thru the beringer mixer for power but using another mixer.


If you plug into the PA input or inserts of this unit, that DISCONNECTS all the mixing channels within this unit and none in this unit will work. That is how it is supposed to work.

If you wish to use another mixer as well as the channels in this, I suggest you run the other mixer into one of the stereo channel inputs OR the CD inputs, although the CD are NOT balanced inouts and subject to higher noise level.

The Mini KP generates Stereo output and you would run it to either a stereo channel on your mixer before the amp or into two channels of your mixer board and PAN them to opposite sides.

If you try to connect this to a monaural amp, like a guitar amp) your cable will ground out the output of this box. The minimum would be to builld a special resistive mixer to combine the channels before they go to your amp HOWEVER you will lose much of the effects without having a stereo system.

I have a behringer PMP 3000 mixer, on e of the channel is gone, it is not under warranty, can you tell me who can repair it ? what causes the channel to blow.


Often the A channel power output blows. CEASE using the unit immediately until repaired as continued use can have additional damage to power supply.

Any problem with speakers can blow the channel as there is real weak insulation on a multi-layer circuit board in the rear most amp (channel A). It burns and takes out three transistors on the HCA2400 module inside.

ALSO read my tip on here regarding a hazard of Behringer PMP units due to the channel A connection when using Speakon to 1/4 inch plugs or adapters having the BARREL being the hot lead instead of the TIP of the 1/4 inch plug. Short that barrel to ANY ground and goodbye channel A.

Need to connect to a sound blaster live sound card for recording using sonar as recording program. hace had it in storage for sometime and can't remember what went where


This particular mixer offers a usb (2 channel connection) that can be simply plugged into the computer usb 2.0. These channels should be available in Sonar from the channel Input/output drop boxes. You may need to restart Sonar, the mixer or both for them to be recognized. You may also need to run the Wav Profiler in Sonar. Typically the Wave Profiler is found in the Options>Audio menu but may be different on each edition of Sonar. The above info is for Sonar 7.

If you are wanting to record several channels at once then I would recommend connecting your Mixer's Direct Outputs from each channel to a corresponding input of the soundblaster if your soundblaster supports multiple channels. And then use the usb outbut from the Sonar to monitor the computer playback of your master stereo channel. Or, you may connect the soundblaster outputs to unused channels of the mixer or to the tape return or auxilary inputs to monitor the computer playback on the mixer.

Alternately you can send the signal to your soundblaster via the buss outputs. This will limit the number of simaltanious output channels to the number of busses on the mixer, but you can send any mixer channel to any buss without unplugging the instruments or mics.

Here's the link to the page where you can download the free pdf manual for this mixer. Page 14 explains the output connections and has diagrams.

I have the Eurolive B212A speaker,and the Xenyx 1202fx.I want to play my Ipod using this set up.Please help with connection


The Ipod is stereo and your speaker is not, so don't expect stereo.

Find a 1/8 inch stereo cable that splits the two channels into individual cables and enter those into two channels of the 1202 mixer. You might find a cable that goes from the 1/8 inch stereo and splits to two RCA type jacks which you have to either find RCA inpouts on your mixer or get two RCA to 1/4 inch adapters.

Crank the pan controls clear to the left on those two channels. Run a cable from the 1202 left main out to your speaker input.

Adjust the controls as needed.

What do i need in a mixer? i want to connect my kaoss pad mini, and kaossilator, and obviously a couple of cdjs, and where do i connect them straight in the mixer or amp, im awaiting my purchase and just...


For dj use, industry standard would be something like a Pioneer DJM600 mixer. 4 channels w/ effects and a mic input. To use kaoss it's best to go into Send/Return input through the effects. By tapping on Send, all sound is sent out to the kaoss pad, and comes back into the mixer into the Return inputs. By doing this you can have the kaoss pad on sitting next to the mixer ready to apply effects all the time. Then connect the master outputs from mixer into your amp, or straight to powered speakers. Kaossilator is more of an instrument than effects unit, so plug in to channel 3 after your 2 cdjs in channel 1 and 2. You still have a spare channel left. I use 2 x 1200s and 2 x cdjs with kaoss pad through effects channel in this way. A 4 channel mixer is plenty.
