Want to record live music from a soundlab professional pro-10/700

Im looking for a manual, or good advice. trying to record live music thru the deck( soundlab professional pro-10/700-efx ), wanna see whats the best way to do it. hoping the manual will either have a recommendation, or at least spex for compatibility.
think the xlr ports on the top are the best, but dont know weather its safe to connect them to my computers usb port, or weather it'd be better to use some kina mp3 recorder. my friend recommends using minidisc. im looking for good quality, and minimal expense.

Is the XLR unplugged from the channel when you are using a 1/4 " instrument cable?

You don't specify the receiver model or type so I'll give you the generic AV/Receiver advice that also applies to stereo receivers. It's probably verkill but the short answer is at the end.

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.

The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.

In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).

Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.

The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.

EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Mon as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.

In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Mon is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

Okay, back to the hook-up: Receiver Tape- or VCR Out to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-In; Receiver Tape- or VCR In from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-Out.
If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.

Eq to receiver


Connect through the tape monitor jacks and if a tape deck is used connect it to the eq! Check your owners manual if you still have it or download one.

Do you have any manuals as to how to hook this up to a sony str av-710 receiver?


Well, since the EQ-0100 is a stereo analog component you will be able to use it only for stereo analog source material. Of course, once it's inside the av-710, you can manipulate the sound digitally for soundfield and such.

Basically, hook it in like a tape deck, say, in Tape Deck 2's circuit. Then, whenever you want to use it inline with stereo source material just select Tape 2 Monitor and it will be placed inline. Be advised, any digital programming you want to hear will probably be muted if you monitor any tape deck. That's pretty much normal.

You can slave an analog deck off the EQ as it has a Tape Record/Monitor loops of its own and facilities for making the EQ be on the Record OR the Playack side of it.

Normally, the receiver's internal volume, eq or effects controls will not affect the analog loop out to the EQ-100 or attached decks, BUT, this receiver sends processed effects out to Tape Deck 2, if you should desire to record them (page 29 of the manual). Other REC Out jacks pass conventional UNprocessed sound.

I couldn't find the exact instructions for this model but they all work about the same.

How to connect phono leads


  1. Step 1 Check the back of your Stereo for recording input(in) and output (out), your cassette deck may be plugged into these jacks.
  2. Step 2 Connect the RCA/Phono wires to your equalizer's input and output jacks on the back.
  3. Step 3 If your cassette deck or some other component is plugged into the recording jacks in the back of your amplifier, unplug it and plug it into the back of the equalizer under monitor jacks. Be sure that the "out" from the cassette deck goes to the "in" of the equalizer.
  4. Step 4 Now, take the wires from the equalizer and plug them into the amplifier in the same manner: "in" to "out" and visa versa.
  5. Step 5 Once all your wires are connected be sure the "tape monitor button" on the amplifier is on. Turning it off will disable the equalizer. You can still monitor your recording devise or cassette deck by the "monitor switch" on the equalizer.

Having a hard time connecting various audio components


Yes, it is a little tricky...

1) CD Changer (output) -> CD input on Amp

this is tricky... this will allow you to record to your tape deck, and control the sound via the EQ:
2) Tape Deck (tape out / recout) -> TAPE PLAYBACK on EQ
3) Tape RecOut on EQ -> Tape 1 Playback on Amp
4) Amp Tape 1 RecOut -> Tape Deck Playback / Input / RecIn
in essence, your creating a loop starting from the tape deck, going to the eq, then to the amp, then back to the tape deck to record.

Your EQ has another set of LINE IN and LINE OUT - use the second Tape 2 on the amp to create another loop. This will
allow you to control the EQ for any of the other sources.
5) LINE IN on EQ -> Tape 2 RecOut
6) Tape 2 Playback on Amp -> LINE OUT on EQ

5) Radio Tuner (output) -> Tuner input on Amp
6) DVD/VCR Combo Output -> AV/AUX on Amp

7) PC Computer... you don't have room for this. You can either use the PHONO input, and you'll have to purchase a Line Level Phono Converter
or, get a Y cable and split the signal and share with some other source.

Hope this helps.

Feedback noise from mixer


Your mixer is already grounded, and does not need any additional grounding. It is grounded through the Power Cord.

Now, the feedback might be coming from one of the units you have connected to the mixer. The issue could also be the cable you are connecting to your recorder. Are you recording to a computer, or to some other external recorder (CDR / DVR / MDR, etc?) - try a different cable. Also try the different outputs on the mixer - you have 2 balanced line outputs you can record directly from. Don't use the RECORD OUT line, it's an unbalanced line, and if you want a good quality signal to record, your best bet is to use the XLR outputs. However, that might be connected to your amp or something.

What do you have going to the unit? Disconnect everything, and try by connecting each item 1 by 1, to eliminate where this feedback is coming from. Also, check for any ground loops that you might have, if you have a lot of equipment hooked up in your set up. (Educate yourself on Ground Loops)

If all else fails, get yourself a HUM ELIMINATOR.

Pioneer DJM-600 black Professional DJ power on but not working!! i check bouth the fuses and are working i can see that is power in te mixer but no answer with any signal of leds or music signal


So you get power to the unit, but no sound coming out? How about through the headphones, do you get sound coming out of the headphones?

Are all the volumes and gains raised up? All the eq's are up? Check the back of the mixer, there is a master gain volume - where the connections are - make sure this is up also.

If nothing, then you'll need professional help at this point.

Sherwood 460 equalizer hook up


Connect the EQ to the Sherwood as if it were a tape deck: EQ's outs connect to receiver's tape ins (play) and EQ's ins connect to receiver's tape outs (record).
Then you hook the tape deck up to the tape ins and outs on the EQ: Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and tape deck ins connect to EQ's tape outs (record).
This will put the EQ in your receiver's tape loop.
The CD player should be connected to the receiver though the CD in's and out's (or if your Sherwood doesn't have a CD in/out, then use AUX or TAPE2).
To hear the EQed signal with all receiver sources (like the CD player) you'll need to engage the 'Tape Monitor' button or switch which will route the tape loop to the speakers.
