Question about Peavey PV8 Mixer

1 Answer

Im trying to choose my inputs: (under preferences, Device) begin input1 and end input should be 8, but it only shows 2. Assuming I chose my ASIO4all driver that indownloaded. I can also chose Directsound which works much better with no background noise. Heres my problem: With only 2 inputs I cant choose each of my inputs to a different tack. ie track1 input1, track2 input2 ... ... track5 sereo5&6, etc. If I put my bass in stereo5&6 and choose input:stereo5&6, arm the track (using reaper that came with the mixer by the way), and pluck a string theres nothing on Reaper, but chossing inputs 1 or 2 or stereo1&2 they all work fine. In order to record I must record one person one track at a time. I want to record us all on our own individual track at same time. Ive been trying to figure this out for a month, please help. Thanks to all of those who reply. :)

The reason it does not work is because the PV8USB only sends the main mix to the USB. You need a different sort of beast altogether to do what you are wanting.

I can't hear the sound from my PC when I'm using the mixer. Its hooked up to both the computer and the speakers, but when I'm recording in pro-tools 11 I can't hear any of my playback. I have to bounc


hello. Im not too familiar with Protools (mainly because its a headache right out of the box), but MY understanding is that Protools won't recognize a lot of external audio devices. (such as behringer)
however..if you are able to record and 'see' the audio there, just not hear it, there might still be a solution, & seeing as how i never used protools, it still might just work.
First of all:
if you're using the UCA-200 external usb box connected with rca cables, then my solution SHOULD work, as it is what i did to get mine to finally do the same thing.

#1) you will need to pick up (x2) RCA-1/4 jack adapters . (radioshack, about $2 each)
#2) insert a red and white rca cable in the RIGHT side of the Mixer's CD/Tape out .....the other end of the rca cables will go into the UCA-200 INPUT.
#3) with 2 more cables in the OUTPUTs of the UCA-200, put the rca-1/4 jack adapters on both cables, insert them back into the Mixer inputs 9/10 (in the analog 1/4 instrument inputs)
#4) adjust volumes accordingly, make sure channel 9/10 isn't muted, headphone volume is up, etc..
.......if that didn't do the trick, then you will need to go into the Audio Settings menu on your computer..(or protools) and change the default playback device to your mixer (probably named Generic USB or something similar)

I really hope this helps somewhat, because i remember going through the same thing & it took a looong time to find the correct awnser.
best of luck!

*also*

check for any updated drivers for your mixer! (I personally recommend you do a Google search for Asio4all drivers, they're pretty good)







if your awnser is A), i would suggest going into your computer's Audio Settings menu, and select the mixer as your default playback device.

Im Using Acid Music Studio 8.0 With & Xenyx502 Mixer. Every Time I Record It Sounds Fine But When I Play It Back When Im Finished Its Off Beat How Do I Fix This??


check the "buffer" setting - set to the lowest number possible. You can't eliminate the "latency" but you can reduce it a lot. Also 0 try to monitor what you are recording with "live" sound (input instead of output) - also, you may need to download a different driver for your audio card, try ASIO4ALL

I am getting minimal to almost no sound coming from my mic to my computer.


If you are using the fx/send port to the mic-in port (I have no idea why you would want to do that) but nevertheless, check the red fx dial and make sure it is at 12 oclock and turn the pan dial to 12 oclock also. remember if you are using mic input 1 or 2 with a mic that requires Phantom power the button needs to be locked in the down position. OK im assuming you have checked and set your gain and volume levels on the 802 prior to plugging in your mic. If not do so now.(unplug all outputs and with mic plugged in speak into the mic while turning up gain until you get distortion which is indicated by a rewd light next to the "pan" button...once you see that light turn the gain dial back slightly and you should be set) have volume at 12 oclock on both l"evel1" and "main mix: dials. Now goto your windows desktop and right click on your volume control "speaker" icon. Click on "Playback device" you should see your mic in the list on enabled devices.If you dont see your mic in list right click the screen and click show disabled devices. Enable your device. If it is already enabled right click it and make sure it is not muted. finally go back to list of playback devices and right click your mic and click "configure speakers" run through the tests. close everything.mic should be working now. If it is not I suggest you plug your mic into either the line in from the fx/send or keep it in the mic-in port and plug the other end into the head phones port.Or better yet, get an rca to mini stereo jack and use the cd/tape out jacks to send your signal to the mic port of your computer......keep playing with it...you'll figure it out.There are so many different ways to hook up your perephrials its mind numbing sometimes.

Mixer not working with Skype


Skype allows only one audio input at the time. You can set up the input device in the skype menu.
Try connecting all microphones to the Mackie and then connect the output from it to the line in or microphone input on the PC, then choose the input you connected it to in skype.

My behringer xenyx 802 premium 8-input mixer worked fine for 1 day but now it sounds watery and behringer support was no help at all


Sounds like it may have failed. Yes, it is likely that it needs to be returned. Another option is to unplug all inputs and outputs. Plug in ONE device into the board, and use the headphone jack on the board. Does it sound the same? Just basic troubleshooting may help.

Assuming you are running windows XP you need to

1. right click the speaker in the lower right corner and select adjust audio properties.

2. Select the audio tab

3. Pull the drop down menu under sound recording and make sure it is selected to your audio driver device. Most are either soundmax, creative(for soundblaster and audigy standalone cards), realtek, or ASUS.

4. Next repeat step one but select open volume control

5. Go to options and then properties

6. Select the circle for recording and make sure your mic input is checked.

7. Close that window and recording mixers will pop up. Select the input you need by checking the box in the lower left corner of the mixer channel. Adjust the level and then use your recording program or sound recorder under Program files>accesories>communication>sound recorder.

Thing is that im recording a song. After recording when i try to play it, it doesnt give any sound. Im positive that it records fine. Any solutions?


This is totally dependent on the software you are using to record.

Not knowing what you are using makes any response a wild guess.

IN GENERAL you must configure both the input and output device within the recording software you are using.

I use Sonar and one has to select the audio input and output device and tell the program which device is used for timing.

Mixer doesnt send sound to my computer


If you are using recording software you will have to look for Preferences and make sure that the software is detecting your soundcard. You also have to make sure that your PlayControl settings match the input on your soundcard to the ones your mixer are plugged into. You also have to match the RecordingControl which is under Options and then Properties. That is all under Sounds and Audio Devices in your Control Panel under the Volume tab then Advanced. If you have latency problems which makes the sound delayed from the input on your mixer to what you hear from your computer try downloading Asio4all although your mixer should have come with a disk with the proper drivers. If it didn't Behringer has a great support section at their site that has downloads for everything.

Input wires broken loose, not sure where the go to


The center pin is your tip..which should have a wire going from 1/4" jack to the XLR jack. Pin 1 is earth ground...should be coming from 1/4" jack sleeve. Pin 3 would come from the 1/4" jack ring.
