Stereo channels of Xenyx 1202 are very very quiet

The stereo channels of my 1202 are MUCH quieter than the mono channels. It's almost impossible to get a setting that allows this to be more than a four-channel mixer. I've tried every combination of effects, gain, main volume, etc., to no availl Help!

It sounds as if the input is too low. what happens if you plug whatever is going into the stereo channels into a pair of mono channels. Or are you taking about the phono stereo tape input?
The stereo channels are line level whereas the other channels have both line and mic level inputs, what are you trying to put through the stereo channels? You must make sure the gain switch is set to the -10dB to get the most sensitivity (the mono channels have about -132dB max sensitivity BTW) You probably need a different mixer or possibly a submixer if you are needing more than 4 low level inputs.

Check you assign buttons and bottom (three black square buttons) and play with them. It sounds as if you are not sending to that side. You should use mono cables into left and right. I set pan on left all the way left and right, all the way right. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

SOURCE: Monitors not audible with Behringer 1680S

Assuming you're trying to power the monitors from this unit as well as the mains.....Confirm that the amp switch is in the middle position which splits the internal amps....one for main and one for monitors. Output A would power the monitors.... B would power the mains.

I have connected a laptop to a Phonic MM 1002a mixer, Do you need to use both Channel A & B on Peavey M - 2600 Mark V Stereo Am


This depends on what you are trying to do. If you want a mono output from the amp switch it to mono mode and go into one input on the amp, this will mean the amp only works mono.

If your source is stereo you will need to use two inputs on the mixer and pan them both to the side you will be sending to the amp. This will cost you two mono inputs on the mixer though.

If you have anything stereo this is the route you will need to take but I don't see why you would want to do this as surely you'd be better running everything stereo (two channel) and panning any mono signals where you want them and leaving stereo as stereo.

You are running your balanced cable into a windows 7 PC? What interface are you using... not the line input on the PC I hope as it is NOT balanced... it is Stereo input with UNBALANCED input. If you tie the mixer using a balanced to 1/8 inch balanced connector you will get plenty of hiss since you are driving the stereo channels oppositely. For high quality, get a good audio interface that runs on the USB of the PC. If you can tolerate a bit of noise but wire it correctly, then you will need to use two UNBALANCED lines out of the mixer for L and R and merge them to a stereo 1/8 inch plug for the PC.

Cant hook computer to mixer for you tube music


You would need a stereo splitter taking a 1/8 inch stereo plug for the computer into two 1/4 inch jacks to plug into two channels of the mixer OR a 1/8 to 1/4 TRS cable that you go into the Stereo (L) of one of the stereo channels... OR a 1/8 inch splitter to RCA plugs going into the TAPE input jacks of the mixer. You can't really go via the USB cable easily from YouTube,

The IPOD generates STEREO signals and you would have to use a 1/8 inch STEREO to 1/4 inch WYE cable into TWO channels of the mixer.
If you use a MONO cable it shorts out one of the sudio amps in the IPOD and will creates distortion.
When you use the two channels to accept the 1/4 inch plugs of the WYE cable, you will set the PAN controls of the two channels you use to opposite ends to maintain the stereo signal in the mixer.

How can I connect my mackie mixer 1202-vlz3 to my mac mini


use the xlr (3 prong) main left and right outputs of the board. get xlr to 1/4 inch cables. one end will be 3 prong, to plug into the mixer, then the other end will be a mono 1/4 inch plug, like a big headphone plug. Then you have to get a dual mono 1/4 inch to stereo 1/8 inch adapter and plug it noto the line in. if there is no lone in, but a microphone jack instead, you will get a mono signal instead of a stereo signal. in this case, just use 1 channel of the mixer, instead of both of the stereo outs, and use a single mono 1/4 inch to mono 1/8 inch adapter.

the xlr to 1/4 inch cables can be purchased at a music store. the 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapters will probably need to be purchased at radio shack.

I'm running a tape player into one of the mic channels, then out the tape out; problem is any stereo presence is lost. Is it possible to run a 1/8" to RCA in the RCA in, route that to the level meter/main...


Each mic channel is MONO. You could use a 1/8 stereo splitter cable into two mic channels and then PAN them opposite to retain the stereo.

You can also use a splitter cable into the 1/4 inch stereo inputs on the mixer. The 1/8 inch plug must be a stereo plug that then splits to two RCA plugs or two 1/4 inch plugs.

Note that the manual specifies that the Tape/CD out is merely paralleled off the mains out. This means that your main fader controls the level to the CD/TAPE output... which may mean your main output has to be too loud to get adequate output from the CD/TAPE outs to be effective. This would require balancing the levels into your external amp better.

Use TRS to TRS balanced cables from the M Audio to the line in 11 and 12.

Set the pan controls for the 11 and 12 to opposite directions to split the stereo to left and right main outputs. (otherwise both main outs mix the left and right and you get mono result.

I have the Eurolive B212A speaker,and the Xenyx 1202fx.I want to play my Ipod using this set up.Please help with connection


The Ipod is stereo and your speaker is not, so don't expect stereo.

Find a 1/8 inch stereo cable that splits the two channels into individual cables and enter those into two channels of the 1202 mixer. You might find a cable that goes from the 1/8 inch stereo and splits to two RCA type jacks which you have to either find RCA inpouts on your mixer or get two RCA to 1/4 inch adapters.

Crank the pan controls clear to the left on those two channels. Run a cable from the 1202 left main out to your speaker input.

Adjust the controls as needed.

Do I need to connect the Xenyx 1202 to an amp?


If you are the only person listening, you can use headphones with the headphone jack. Otherwise you will have to use some sort of amplification and speakers,e.g. P.A., stereo etc. I'm using a Xenyx 1222 FX and am quite happy with it.
