Question about Music
We are trying to record some of our church services and we have a soundtech s824 mixer and we can't seem to get the computer hooked up right to record.

Go to http://www.zzounds.com/item-ALEAIRFX.Under the picture you will see About This Product. Click on DOCs and you can download the manuals for it. Read the manual carefully and it is explained very well. Use your mixer manual to get the best set up. I would recommend using it in an FX loop that lets you mix the individual channels FX into the output you have hooked up to your computer.

You just need a USB audio interface ... the outputs from your mixer are analog, which will plug into the right/left inputs on the audio interface ... and the audio interface connects to the computer via USB ... this is a very common way to do it ...
There are a lot of devices out there ... I'm using a Tapco Link.USB audio interface ... not too expensive ... you don't need anything fancy ...
Once you get the USB audio interface (by the way, if you are using a Mac you probably do not need to install any software for it) then you want to make sure your audio inputs are set to use it ... there are two ways to do this .. first way is right in the Cooledit software, if there is a place to tell the software what the input audio device is ... if this is not possible then change your systems general audio settings to select the USB audio interface for sound input.

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you fredy2. im very grateful. Wish i had know about this site before i purchased some of my gear. I will follow these recommendations. THANKS,"
Decide if you want to use the AUX's or the SUB's for your monitors. (usually use the AUX).
Connect TRS cables from the appropriate AUX sends to thee amplifiers you use for your monitors or your powered monitors whichever you have.
Adjust the level using the AUX level controls for each channel to set your minitor mix.
Normally use the PreFader AUX's so monitor levels are set independent of the slide fader positions.
Here is a big hint for you: Search YouTube.com for "Soundboard" or "Soundboard setup". There are good videos there that might be different than your particular board, but there is enough commonality that you will soon be an expert!

SOURCE: i have a behringer xenyx
Yep ! First thing is to eliminate any processing resource "hogs" that **** respources and can cause buffer overruns. Eliminate Antivirus, antispyware, and network communication and wireless network programs running in the background while recording.
Next make sure that ALL equipment is powered from the same receptacle or power source. In your case that should be the mixer and the PC.
Next remember that the condenser mic picks up everything... I have 5 of those mics and seemingly noise free environments turn out to have little things that generate fast rising pulses that you don't notice till they are recorded.
Lastly, the air here is very dry and plain old static electricity is rampart... Lady shuffling her feet was sending pulses through the mic cable at our church. They are NOT audible until they get into the sound system as clicks.
I have found that trying to record directely to a USB stick often has ooverruns and clicks... also burning a CD from stick to the CD results in noise due to buffer underuns. Burn from Hard drive to CD and make sure all the other hog programs are shut off.
