Question about Roland Amplifiers & Preamps

1 Answer

I just need to know how to connect my Roland KB500 out from the KB500 amp to the main mixing board? Should the connection plug into a distinct (fader) channel on the mixing board? This would be for sound reinforcement at a live gig, not for recording. Thank you!GP (newbie, obviously, LOL!)

Hi...
Use the line-out from the KB500 into a channel on the mixer.
That should do it.

Rate my help if it helps.

Thanks

Hi We have an Allen & Heath Mixing Desk connected to two Yamaha P4500 audio amplifiers (via graphic EQ and compressor/limiter) which power the 4 main and 4 side speakers in our church. We now want to...


'Splitting' leads is never the best way to distribute a signal. The best solution is to use the parallel inputs of the Yamahas to chain them together: mixer to amp1, amp1 to amp2, amp 2 to the Cloud. You should only need to use one input on the Cloud to drive all the channels, using the input switches at the rear.

Let me know if you need any clarification on this.

How do I connect my samson amp to my samson MDR10 mixer?


on the mixxer, use the "mix" "L" and "R" outputs. use 1/4 inch instrument cables, and connect the mox L and R to the amp's "channel 1" and "channel 2 inputs". always turn the mixing board on first, and the amp second- when turning off turn off the amp first, and turn off the mixer second. start with the mixer levels at the lowest, with the amp levels about 1/2 to 3/4 up. slowly raise the mixer channels first and then the mixer main volume until you have an adequate volume.

The amp turns on but has no sound coming through the speakers


There should be several channel choices and speaker connections, make sure they both match.
If you are not sure, put the amp on main or 1 and try all the connections until you find the ones that sound is being routed to.
Also overload protection is pretty sensitive, if you have touched wires together or mixed up + and - you may have tripped it, and may need to reset.

I have a roland keyboard mixing amplifier, KC-550. With an ipod plugged in, its only playing one channel, regardless of which channel I plug into, and the keyboard is also not sounding full. Not sure if...


The KC-550 is a MONAURAL amp and since the Ipod emits STEREO you have to use a special cable to MIX both the left and right from the Ipod into a single, monaural signal.

You can MAKE a cheapy mixer that will serve your purpose by using a series resistor, say 1K from each of the two Ipod output channels to go to the single mono input to the KC-550.

I would build it this way: Find an old IPOD cable or any 1/8 inch stereo cable and seperate the two wires and the shield. In a 1/4 inch plug, connect the shield from the Ipod cable to the shield (barrel sleeve) of the 1/4 inch plug. Connect one lead of each of TWO 1K resistors to the TIP connection of the 1/4 inch plug. Connect each of the two signal leads from the Ipod to the two remaining floating resistor leads. Insulate the splices.

DON'T forget to put the shell for the 1/4 inch plug over the cable before connecting the cable to the 1/4 inch jack. All parts should be readily available at Radio Shack.

I don't know that I have ever seen a suitable ready made mixer cable for this function.

I don't know where to connect the main in & pre amp jacks??? to the EQ???


Not sure I understand your question, but I will try.
Your CD players, tape decks, etc., connect to the INPUTS on the preamp.

The LINE OUT on the PRE AMP connects to the LINE IN on the POWER AMP.
The pre-amp does some amplification and then it passes the signal along to the power amp, which will do the heavy lifting - driving the speakers.
The connection is usually through a shielded RCA plug cable. THere will be 2 cables from the Pre amp to the power amp - one for the left channel and one for the right channel.
The OUTPUT Of the power amp will connect to the speakers using large, stranded wire cables, sometimes with "banana" plugs that simply plug into the terminals on the power amp and the speaker.
Let me know if this gets your started.

How would you connect a Roland Space Echo direct into a Behringer 2642a mixing desk? Have tryed all inputs/outputs with nothing. Could this be because the mixing desk has ballanced ins/outs and the Roland...


In order for this to work, you need what is called an "insert" cable. This will have a balanced 1/4" connector on one end and 2 1/4" mono-connectors on the other. The balanced connector is also known as a TRS connector (Tip,Ring,Sleeve). You should have "insert" jacks on the mixer. Place the balanced connector into whatever insert you wish to use (usually this is inserted into the main insert). One of the 1/4 plugs is for input, one for output. I don't know which is which for your specific unit, you will have to experiment. Keep us posted. Dan

When plug in guitar to amp, there is either no


Try a different guitar and cord. If still problem, give the amp a bump without guitar plugged in. If amp makes noise, there is an intermittent internal connection,

Echo into mixer


I think the Echo's output goes into the mixer's input.You should be using one's output into other's input...that's how things work.If you r talking about both the system's input then they won't work with each other. Other thing is that if it's mono then there r cable available for the use which transfers mono to stereo input and vice-versa.

Hi rockbert

Yes you can do this. the only drama you may have is at high levels where one amp may begin to clip and distort before the other. If you are trying to run a stereo setup, you could counter this to some degree by adjusting the bigger amps gain down to the same level as the smaller amp if needed, giving you control over the "stereo balance".

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Center channel speaker


Is the amp already used for L R? If so, you either need another amp for center, or set your Sony for stereo mix down. I have mixed the center channel into my main LR in the past and found there were terrible phase cancellations, so I suggest you switch to Stereo, or use a separate amp.
