Help with hooking up a compressor for vocals.

I have two Behringer PMP Mixer Amps (1-PMP3000 and 1-PMP4000). I want to purchase and learn how to properly hook up a compressor for vocals. I do a lot of karaoke shows and have singers with various vocal strengths and the occasional screamer. I'm looking at the FMR Audio Really Nice Compressor - RNC 1773 or some possible others. I just need to know how to hook it up and what cables I will need. Thanks!

The compressor is a really good idea and should be connected between your mixer and your amplifiers. Your "integrated" mixer/amp is a bit tricky in that you will have to "insert" the compressor in the signal path.

If you have the "console" model....

1. "Main 1 Out" left and right to the input of your compressor and the output of the compressor connected to the "PWR Amp Insert."

2. What is known as Tip, Ring, Sleeve patch cable and plug connected ONLY to the "PWR Amp Insert." This type connection breaks out into a "Input" and "Output" using a single 1/4 stereo plug.

If you have the "square box with knobs on front" model

1. "Main Output" to input of comressor and compressor outputs to "Input to Main" (aka "AUX IN").

Check your owners manual for hookup details or suggestions and remember, all outputs feed inputs and all inputs feed outputs.

SOURCE: I need to output guitar and vocal separately

Hi there. Use the "pan" pots to assign the guitar to left channel and all other pans to right channel. Also, turn all effects off or down all the way. (Effects return all the way down.
Thanks

It is possible, you can simply put a Y-cable for Mic or a splitter for the mbox and the Mic. You can plug the mic directly to the mixer then the other jack on the splitter connected to the mbox.

Passive loudspeakers are connected to the two "Speakon" connectors on the back of the unit. BUY GOOD cables for your speakers!!!! Whatever you do don't have a speaker line come loose while driving audio out !!! You will arc- out the rear-most power amp... I know, I repaired two of these now with the problem.

Connect the recording device to either the "tape OUT" RCA jacks or either of the pairs of MAIN out TRS jacks.

Set the slide switch for the MAIN L/MAIN R (upper position) leave this in this position unless you understand what the other positions are for to avoid damage. You will NOT need the other positions.

Further: Power ALL interconnect devices from the SAME receptacle source to avoid ground loops and possible damage.

YOUR passive speakers should be rated at least 300 Watts RMS continuos power handling or 600 Watts peaks.

Drive consumer stereo speakers with this and you will smoke the speakers and MAYBE blow the amp. This is a powerful amplifier and if you don't have at least 15 inch speakers you MUST really hold down the volume lest you blow the speakers.

Above all read the manual... yes, it is a bit hard to understand...

If you have a problem you can contact me by email for a bit of help. I have wo of these I have been using at venues now.

ok, first thing will be the effects processor. look for the "aux sends" output jacks near the bottom center of the rear panel. run a 1/4 inch instrument cable from "aux send" 3 out into the input on the vocal processor, and run another from aux 4, if the effects processor has 2 inputs. then, from the vocal processors output, run 1/4 inch cables back into the "stereo returns" on the mixer, (located on the rear panel on the bottom, extreme left) 2 outputs per input, since its making stereo effects. so, if you ran just send 3 into the processor, you should have a left and right return instrument cables into the mixer for "stereo return" 3 (left and right). if your processor has 2 imputs, and you are using both "aux send" 3 and 4, then you will have to have a pair of cables going to each "stereo return" for 3 & 4. -to apply effects to a microphone(s), you would adjust the individual aux send levels for each channel you want to have effects, and you would have to ensure that the master aux sends and returns are also turned up..

ok, the snake is simple, each xlr (3 prong mic) connector on the snake is labeled, so, just plug each xlr jack into the corresponding channel on the board, and plug the first 2 1/4 inch ends of the snake into the "C/R out balanced" outputs on the board, located on the rear panel, up and to the left a bit.

at the stage end of the snake, ues a 1/4 inch instrument cable to copnnect the first 2 1/4 inch jacks on the snake to the left and right inputs of the crossover. then, from the crossover, connect the sub power amp to the "low" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables, and connect the main speakers amp to the "high" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables. if its an adjustable corssover, you will want to have it crossed over somewhere about 80-120 hz to allow only the lowest frequencies to the subs.

now, from the amps to the speakers, we ane going to have to use heavier 12-14 gague SPEAKER CABLES, instead of light gague instrument cables. hook the subs up to the stereo speaker outs of the sub amp with speaker cables, and do the same for the main speakers.

I'm Ziro. I need a part list for the main power supply board for behringer pmp4000 mixer, two transistors were removed from it and I need to know the part numbers of each in order to install them.


In my opinion, due to the physical appearance of pmp4000 and pmp3000 look the same, it will most likely also have a common circuit and parts list (at least, most).
Usually Behringer (and all the manufacturers), with the same series / sequence, using the same circuit, the difference is the number of channels only. You can compare the parts list on PMP3000 schematic, with your PMP4000.

How do you connect tape deck to pmp 4000


Hi, use the RCA/Phono connections for the Tape In & Out. The level will be set by the Master/Main fader. If that is not so convenient (& assuming it's a PMP4000?) there should be a "Main 2" output & connections with the level controlled separately to Main 1 via a Knob / Rotary control over to the right above the "Mono" fader... Hope that helps... Good Luck!

We are trying to purchase a pmp mixer for our church choir. What's the difference between the pmp 3000 and the pmp 4000? Thanks!


The answer is "Not Much"... they upped the rating for power out and added 1000 to the model number... I don't know of any circuitry difference between them... it would probably be minor. Functionality is the same.

How can i put another amplifier to the powered mixer


Using TRS balanced cables, come from the main outputs L and R on the top of the panel to your external amps. ALSO read my tip on Fixya about hazard of channel A on PMP mixers.

I want to know how to send the signal from a Europower pmp 3000 to two external amps


Plug a balanced TRS (tip ring sleeve) cable into either main or monitor 1/4 inch jacks and then into the amp. ALWAYS use balanced lines AND power the mixer AND the amps from the SAME receptacle to avoid damage from ground loop bounce,

Hi Folks, I have the Behringer PMP3000 Europower Desk. now also have a studiomaster VPX15 Sub (Active 600W). Does anyone know what the crossover arrangements are on the PMP for the Mono out, and what...


There is no crossover arrangement. On the PMP5000 they have a tunable filter INTENDED to do low pass for a subwoofer. When selecting this mode for a subwoofer The frequency of the low pass filter can be set between 30 and 200 Hz. This feature is NOT available on the PMP3000.

There is nothing related to a crossover in these amps other than what is mentioned above.

The MONO out is merely an analog summation of both the L and R channels.

Can i hook up a seperate power amp . to the pmp 6000 powerd mixer . for more over all power.


You can add extra amps driving ADDITIONAL speakers... you CANNOT parallel amps driving the same speakers.

Drive these seperate amps from the MAINS OUT connnectors using TRS and balanced lines to those external amps.

Fuse and fuse holder needed for Behringer 3000 pmp mixer


Try this Behringer support:

BEHRINGER USA, Inc.
18912 North Creek Parkway, Suite 200
Bothell, WA 98011
Tel.: +1 425 672 0816
Fax: +1 425 673 7647

I just repaired a PMP3000.

A bit of warning on these. Do not let a speaker leads get pulled while powered. They can arc out the power amp causing extensive damage.

If the fuse ever blows do NOT replace the fuse as much more damage will result. Service the unit before using.

Can I hook up 2 separate power amps to PMP3000? I


Better way... Connect the main speakers via the Speakons and then put a Power Subwoofer to one of the Monitor connections IF you are not using both stage monitors. If you need to kill the lows to the mains, use the EQ in the PMP-3000.

Use the EQ that is USUALLY on the subwoofer to kill the highs to the sub.

Lot less cables and hardware.

REMEMBER for equipment safety, power ALL interconnected equipment from the same source be it a receptacle or power distribution system.

Powering parts of a system from receptacles strewn around a room is asking for trouble of ground loops and ground faults.
