Question about Rane PE 17 Home Equalizer

Rane Mixer ttm 54

When phono line 1 is switched on phono the sound level indicator peaks out and creates a loud buzzing sound, when I switch it to line 1, it goes away - it is only when it is on phono. The only thing I did was take off the face plate and spray it with compressed air thinking it had dust inside.

Sounds like a grounding issue or maybe even a power supply issue...

double check the power is snapped into the phone like jack in the back and recheck!

In sound system you have different sound level start with phono level up to line level up to speaker level.-you will switch to phono when you connect phonograph and you will switch to line when you connect another audio source like dvd and video sound.

Hallo! First you should check with a tester if there is present the voltage at the exit of your power supply, on the cord that goes to the mixer. If there IS voltage (usually 9...15V) then I'm sorry, your mixer is dead. But, for me, most of times is burning the alimentation. Cheers!

Hope you guys can help... I have a laptop Karaoke system. I connect from laptop to 6 channel mixer to speakers. I use a stereo phono to RCA from laptop to mixer. I am experiencing a buzz coming through...


Yep! Get a decent audio interface that attaches to the PC with a USB connection and uses BALANCED lines to your mixer. I use a UA-25EX Roland/cakewalk as an example. (about $200 and there are cheaper units such as M-Audio Fast Track MKII ) Note these interfaces BOTH record and playback with two channels for stereo.
Essentially the audio board that is in PC's and Laptops are too near the switching noise of the processor and some of that is just bound to get into the audio lines as they don't even have balanced audio lines from the computers. Make sure you use either TRS or XLR balanced cables from whatever interface you get. Also connect ALL interconnected equipment to the same power source or receptacle. You can try to reduce the buzz with the mixer EQ's with what you have, but that sacrifices audio quality.

When setting up a sound card to my m4 numark 3 channel mixer do i have the switch to phono or line


"PHONO" is ONLY for an old school turntable that would require a PHONO preamp, so that leaves, uh, LINE.

It's more than a matter of gain as Phono cartridges require special equalization to restore flatness to the sound recorded in a vinyl groove.

Im new with the use of the record player since im tired of MP3's. i bought a Numark TTusb turntable connected everything, but the sound is low. i have to crank the volume to the max, and only get low...


A turntable use a magnetic cartridge and its output is only 5 to 10 millivolts.A moving coil cartridge is even lower,.2 to .5 millivolts(thats 1/2000 of a volt)in contrast, a mp3 puts out a 300 to 900 mv signal..so does a CD player. Your turntable does not have enough signal.You need to get an amplifier that has a phono input. Years ago,radio shack used to sell phono preamps that could plug into a tape or cd input.The other option is to buy a used mixer that has a phono input.The mixer output can drive the cd input easily,as the max output from a mixer is 1.5 volts to 2 volts.

Hi gium

Sounds like we have reached that point where progressive crossover in technologies means that the usual cautions of earth continuity for the tone arm when using a phono preamp has gone the same way as phono preamps on home theatre.

Have you tried switching to the line level and set the mixer up for that level also. That may reduce any gain induced hum. However it sounds like an earth loop problem, where both decks will need to be earthed in the mixer. Check also that all the gear is running of the same power point. Different mains phases are sometimes available near each other, having any gear (power amps also) on a different phase will cause an earth loop problem.

Is the hum all the time independent of the volume levels, or change with levels adjustments and not at all when turned right down. Let me if changing to line levels helps. We can try some more things, like connecting a temp hookup wire earth to the RCA earth to mixer chassis. Cheers

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.
