SOURCE: presonus studio channel has no sound

Assuming you are connecting a microphone to this, if the mic is a condenser mic, make sure you have Phantom power on the PreSOnus turned on. You have given us almost no info of your configuration of mics and other devices connected to this unit.

SOURCE: Hello, Not sure if my issue

What latency do you have the Presonus set to? Too low of latency can cause this issue.

How do i connect my keyboard and my laptop?


Download USB MIDI driver for yamaha from yamaha website,and install to laptop.
Next:
Make sure the POWER switch on the instrument is set to OFF,then use an AB type USB cable to connect the instrument to the laptop.
After making the connections, turn on the power of the instrument.
Laptop will immediately notify that new hardwares is connecting and automatically install the drivers. Wait until the process is finish.
Thats all. In Ableton,the setting MIDI input must be set to USB MIDI.

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.

When using the RCA jack for Audio In on the Stage Designer 50 controller there is always a ground buzz. This happens when using line out from Yamaha Mixer board, iPod headphone out or guitar line out. ...


You have a ground loop. First, ALL interconnected equipment MUST be powered from the same receptacle or power conditioner. You need to put an isolator in that audio line. This consists of a audio transformer with isolation between primary and secondary windings. The function is like a DI box... but they usually don't make those for RCA jacks. One could cobble up using a DI and a pocketful of cable adapters, but it would be less expensive to get a small audio transformer from Radio Shack and make one with a female and a male RCA jack and plug. FIRST thing though is to get everything powered from the same source. Using multiple plugs at different points within a building is ASKING for these problems and also to damage your equipment. Yes, we have to run extension cords to bring power to the mixer from where the amps are at times... You MIGHT find for your problem you can use one of the impedance matching plugs that have a transformer in them. You would need a few adapters to get the connectors.

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.

I'm using the rocktron banshee on a keyboard when I turn up the gain i hear the radio.


You are probably very near a powerful AM transmitter. This is a shielding problem and use of a better quality audio cable between the keyboard and the Talk Box might help as well as CHANGING the length of the cord. Length afects how good an antenna the cord is.

One could put a bypass capacitor in the Talk Box as what you are hearing is "rectification" of the radio station in the high gain of the inout circuit of the talk box... one or two capacitors would likely fix it... I would try 330 Pf caps first right where the cord comes into the box between the signal and ground points.

I have a condenser mic, and it needed phantom power to work, so I bought the Ultra Di-100, but I don't know how to make my mic work with it.


Sorry, but the DI-100 can OPERATE on phantom power, not supply it. If you have a mixer that has phantom power then you have no need for the DI box. DI boxes are to convert unbalanced signals to balanced to send via XLR or TRS cables.

If you don't have a mixer that has built in Phantom power or a source of Phantom power, then you need a mic preamp that can supply the phantom power.

Here is an example device, but DO shop[ around as you should find some even less expensive. Make sure they have phantom power.

I have two xlr combo inputs which have phantom power. Channel two works as new since I've hardly used it, but channel one which I've used quite a lot has hardly any gain when I use the condenser mic with...


This sounds bad... I suspect that a noise suppression cap on one side of the bad channel has shorted... possibly due to a static discharge.
Test for this doing this: Using a meter, with nothing plugged in and phantom on, check the voltage at both pins 2 and 3 to pin 1 of the XLR connectors. If you find either pin 2 or 3 is much lower than its mate (they both should be 15 volts to 48 volts positive), then one side noise filter cap probably has shorted. Unless you are electronically adept at repair, take it in for servicing.

Hi Folks - I have a Roland Fantom G6 that produces no sound! Everything else seems to be fine - the display registers that I am hitting the keys & even the skip-back sampling feature produces a wav...


This probably is not a DIY repair... The audio comes out of the CODEC and is buffered by Op Amp used as filters and then goes through the volume controls, After that it goes to the jack board with buffer OP amps. First thoughts might be a damaged volume control, however, the "B" outputs don't go through volume controls...

About the only thing I would think you could do is to CAREFULLY open the unit and look for a loose cable involved with sending the audio to the volume control panel and then the cable that takes the audio to the jack board...

More than that you would probably need to take it to a shop equiped to troubleshoot.

My laptop is feeding through my Xenyx 1622fx mixer and output to my Mackie SRM450's. Getting the 'hum' which is a fuzzy noise. Is this solved with ground loop box?


Try hooking your mixer up to your Mackies without the laptop. Does the hum go away? Try hooking your laptop output up to the Mackies without the mixer. Does the hum go away? Make sure that all your power cables run from the same outlet and have the ground or third pin intact on the plug. Also make sure that you are using shielded cables for any connection that carries an audio signal. This includes the cables going to your Mackies as they are powered amplified monitors. Make sure that the cables to your Mackies are balanced and haven't been altered to unbalanced. You will need to use unbalanced cables from your laptop unfortunately but try to find ones with a shield and three conductors ( right and left signals and a common or ground) that have a separate shield from the common. The shield should only be connected to common at the output of the device where the signal starts. A better explanation is at these links:http://www.epanorama.net/documents/groundloop/ also http://www.epanorama.net/documents/groundloop/cable_shielding.html
