I have had similar issues with the 16 channel version. Basically what appears to be happening is the connection to the mixer from the Ipad disconnects itself for a minute. Sliding the Ipad back, and pushing it back into the connection will re sync it to the mixer and all will go back to normal. Another way to help keep things flowing is to add a network router and connect to the Ipad. That way if there is any disconnection, the Ipad will still remain synced to the mixer. It's a good system, with a touchy connector, but still works great.

What could be causing a strange static sounding noise in the headphones only when pressing PFL on any channel.


The "PFL" Stands fo r"Pre Fader Level". Just in case you did not realize. so when you press the "PFL" button , and the red light goes out?, You're saying that the hissing goes away and that you have clarity. Yes? and the volume presents no issues? Also correct? Part of that simply, is with the PFL in the on position. You are engaging the fader for one, which will add to an already boosted signal ( the the fader is turned Up?). also you may have your Clip set incorrectly. to set this you turn PFL off, then at your signal input level Dial (usually at the very top in-line with your fader. _ set the volume on your device, then input clip level on the board \ to where the clip light comes on. not a steady light, but a blinking light so make it steady, then back it off a hair. Okay? this whole time make sure your mains are down. or off at the faders. Once clip is set., PFL is in off position, gradually turn your mains up to level. Now, the PFL is for when you have more than one signal. say from an instrument on another channel. unless you have that? No need to use the PFL. If you do have an instrument in line,. then, before you turn PFL on,make sure that your fader on that channel is turned off. -turn on your PFL, then gradually bring that to level. never messing with the mains level.

I know that is a lot of info. but it is a process. that should eliminate any hissing you may have heard.
Good luck!!

How to Set up Auxiliaries on a Mixer.


Here are some tips to set up the auxiliaries properly on your mixer:
  • Step1:
Your auxiliaries allow you to send the signal from a channel strip to somewhere else while maintaining the signal on the channel strip. For instance, you can use auxiliaries for monitor mixes for performers in a live environment. You can also use auxiliaries for external effects processors or a number of different situations.
  • Step2:
Set the auxiliaries to pre-fader to allow you to change the level for the auxiliary with the auxiliary knob but not with the channel fader. Most mixers have a "Pre" button that allows you to enable pre-fader mode. If you don't have the button pressed, your auxiliaries are in post-fader mode, which means your channel fader will affect the signal level of the auxiliary output. For monitor mixes, you usually want to use pre-fader so you can control monitor mixes independently from the front of house mix. Some effects processors will be better to run post-fader, though, so don't always rely on pre-fader.
  • Step3:
Send out your auxiliary sends. On the back of your board, you there are the auxiliary outputs. For a monitor mix, you will use these outputs to connect to the inputs of the monitors. When using an effects processor, you will use the auxiliary output to connect to the input of the effects processor.
  • Step4:
Plug in a return if necessary. If you are just doing monitors, you do not need returns to the mixer. When using effects processors though, you need a way to get your effected signal back to your mixer. Take the output of the effects processor and connect that to the return input on the back of the mixer. Now you will have to adjust the return section on your channel strip to get the desired signal.
  • Step5:
Use the auxiliary knob to set the desired level. Once you know if you are running pre- or post-fader, and you have your inputs and outputs all correct, you can start sending signal to your auxiliary output. Turn up the auxiliary knob until either your monitors are set correctly or until you have the desired amount of signal going to your effects processor or other outboard equipment.

No meter level on ipad when connected and powered up


Disconnect and reconnect the Ipad from the mixer. It should sync itself up and meters and levels will reappear. Also, you can go to SHOWS, and select the DL808 mixer under Wired Connection and it should sync up, as well as tap on the CONNECTED icon at the top left of the screen.

I have a Behringer PMP 6000 that I just bought. With the power amp switch in Main L/Main R it works fine, but if I switch it to Main/Mon, only the Mon works, nothing from the Main. Bridge mode doesn't...


Bridge mode you use chan B (left connector on the back) using a SPECIALLY wired Speakon. The impedance of a speaker connected as such CANNOT be LESS than 8 ohms.

In the Main/Mon mode, the two amplifiers are separated in function. The monitor knobs for EACH channel input control the mix sent to Channel A which is for the monitor speakers. The Mon1 controls the level sent to Output A for the monitor speakers. Mon2 fader is NOT used.

The individual channel faders control the main mix and the Main fader controls the level sent to Output B which goes to the main speakers.

Faders not working properly on am844d right channell goes in out when I wiggle the main L/R fader. Some of the channel faders are eractic. The level of volume is not responding right to fader...


You probably wrecked the faders putting De-Oit in them!!! NEVER use that in pot and faders... It is for switch contacts only.
You have ONE chance to save them. From Home Depot get a can of CRC226 in the electrical dept. Put some of that using the spout into each fader near the middle and work the faders. The CRC226 costs about $2.70 a can. Make sure it is the 226 as there are OTHER CRC products there and only 226 is the one that is suitable.

The De-Oxit will have cleaned out the lube of the faders and if you are unlucky, one or more of the wipers will have folded back which is fatal... The CRC226 is an electrical lube that I have restored faders and pots with... It has many other uses including lubing plier joints...

Cant restore levels


Sounds like you might have 'Fader Matching' set to something other than 'Real' mode which can cause the physical fader positions to be mismatched with the internal fader settings (useful for saving scenes, and used on the 2488 because there are no motorized faders). You can go into the 'Mixer Preferences' Menu (under the 'Preferences Menu') and check the what is set for fader matching. If it is set to 'jump' or 'catch' you should change this to 'real'.

You also might have a particular 'scene' being recalled which has a lot of saved settings that are affecting the levels.

You can refer to pages 39 and 92 (in the MkII manual) for references on scene memories and fader matching.

Hope this helps.

Output fader ineffective


It sounds as though the ground connection to the fader control has gone missing. Check with a meter.
