Sounds like you need more ram or computer space. You didn't list what time of mixer or computer so can only answer basicly. If using a computer (which it sounds like) see how much the mixer needs andhow much space available on your hard drive. This is called a latency problem. Basicaly how long does it take for the computer to respond to commands while it is doing a task. either get a bigger hard drive and more ram or clear out some files on your computer. You can also go into settings and change the settings. You'll have to look through the manual on latency problems.

Assuming you are running windows XP you need to

1. right click the speaker in the lower right corner and select adjust audio properties.

2. Select the audio tab

3. Pull the drop down menu under sound recording and make sure it is selected to your audio driver device. Most are either soundmax, creative(for soundblaster and audigy standalone cards), realtek, or ASUS.

4. Next repeat step one but select open volume control

5. Go to options and then properties

6. Select the circle for recording and make sure your mic input is checked.

7. Close that window and recording mixers will pop up. Select the input you need by checking the box in the lower left corner of the mixer channel. Adjust the level and then use your recording program or sound recorder under Program files>accesories>communication>sound recorder.

HELLO, I HAVE A BEHRINGER PMP 3000 MIXER, AND I CANT SEEM TO GET THE FX TO WORK EVEN THOUGH I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS IN MANUAL, IME JUST WONDERING IF THERE IS SOMETHING IME OVERLOOKING? SCINCE I KNOW...


Do the following:

Set each of the FX mix knobs to 12 o'clock (halfway up to start)... I believe they are orange tops for each channel effects are desired for.

Next select the number of effect by rotating the selection knob. The display will flash.

Push DOWN on the selection knob to activate the selected effect number... the display will cease to flash. Note that you can mute the effects with a small button in the effect area and decimal point will come on showing effect, even though selected, is disabled. That small button can toggle the effects on and off.

Next, adjust the "FX to main knob" above the MAIN fader... set it to 12 o'clock to start with.
Note that there are two others that send the resultant same effect to stage monitors if used...

Now ADVANCE the FX (orange) fader to increase the input to the FX. You should start to hear the effects... SOME of the effects are subtle, so maybe choose a long delay one to get the hang of it... choose #3 for example...

The manual is NOT too clear how to use the effects and is confusing... they assume you have knowledge common to mixers... and new users don't.

I would recommend watching several YouTube videos about mixer setup... there are some good ones there !!! Most mixers have a lot in common and once you learn what is there, you can work most any of them... some of the new digital ones are a bit more confusing.

Eurodesk sx3242fx has the numbers 1 & 25 flashing in the effects processor display. where can I find the code to tell me what is wrong?


Hi ! I have the same problem. THERE IS DEFINITELY something wrong there. It's not that you've not selected the effects, but the units keep on resetting. Even if you can select a different preset, it will go back to 1 & 25. I've been told that the problem has something to do with the power source, but I'm still trying to get a solution. Best luck !

I have a behringer Xenyx 1622 mixer and am using cubase when i plug it in the it says its ready to go but, something happens and theres no volume..and i cant set it up in cubase?...any suggestions..


When you open Cubase you MUST open a new project.

Then select 24 track audio for example... unless yoou are doing MIDI record and playback.

Then open up a mixer panel and select a channel to read or connect to a file.

There are too many options to describe and the "says its ready to go " is not enough information to know where you are.

You may have to imprt files or record music... Don't forget to select a track on the display of tracks.

Alesis dm5 drum module keeps freezing after 2 mins of playing


Not a lot of ideas for you, but IF it will restart right away it is probably at the end of the particular song memory you have selected. In other words, you may be playing a song performance rather than just a plain rhythm. A song runs for the number of measures it is programmed for, often around the two minutes you mention.

If the whole unit freezes and all panel controls are dead, then I want you to actually freeze the unit in your freezer and quickly try it and measure the time it continues to run. This is to determine if there is a heat related problem. If it runs longer, then you can isolate the problem with circuit cooler.

How to use Audioline Pro DJ Multimedia Mixer M Dex 3.0


I have been recently using this Cd Dj deck at parties and have some general knowledge of the product, it has alot of potential. Is there anything in particular that you need help with? Or is it the general concept of using them.
Currently, i don't think there are that many websites that explain how to use the Cd decks, however i can provide you with some basic information. Most of the information here could be worked out by trial & error.
- Pitch control on the right of each cd deck can be slid up ( slows it down %) and slid down (speeding the track up %) i think the pitch control has a range of either +-10% or +-16%.

- Cue button, has the potential for Cue'ing or setting up the cd to instantly jump to the "cue'd" point with the press of this CUE button. This is done by either pressing play/pause button and rotating the jog wheel to a point of time in the track which automatically sets the cue point OR holding down the >> or << search button to find a spot within the track at a greater speed.

-Vinyl mode. Pressing this button will set the deck to the "vinyl mode" to simulate scratching or even backspins. pressing this button again will change the mode back.

- the Crossfader (or 'X' fader) button will select the left cd track if the x fader is all the way to the left and the right track if the x fader is all the way to right. having the X fader in the middle will play both tracks together.

- Low, Mid, High. These nobs on the middle section of the deck change the individual track by which it is corresponds. (Left side = left cd track, and vica versa) Low refers to the Bass of a track which can be essential for mixing two tracks and elminating excess bass noise. Mid refers to the drumming and even synth of a track, and changing this can result in some cool sounding effects. High refers to the 'high' frequencies of the track playing, such as snares, hi hats and possibly vocals. All these controls are crucial to understand in order to mix 2 songs together successfully. It's good to get a chance to muck around with these cointrols. The middle of each control resets the setting to normal or default.

- Channel fader. the two controls that slide up & down on both sides of the mixer on the deck. This is also referred to the volume setting. Useful for mixing seamlessly one track into another.

- Gain. This control at the top of the mixer refers to the volume level or 'gain' of the cd track that it corresponds to.

- Jog wheel. Serves 3 purposes. firstly it can be used whilst a song is playing to temporarily speed up or slow down the track to match with the song on the opposite side. secondly, whilst holding down the 'search' button, operates as a control to quickly find a spot in a song. and lastly when selecting "vinyl" mode, can simulate the reaction of a vinyl turntable. The scatch function, and backspin effect.

- The pitch button, is just another control to speed up or slow down a song temporarily whilst holding down the '+' or '-' button.

- Reverse button, for a certain amount of time will play the song on the left or right in reverse.

- Time. this button is essential to change the time selection on the cd deck, to either "Time elapsed", "Time remaining" and "total time remaining on the cd".

- the "tap" button, allows the user to physically "tap" the button in time with the song's beat, which calculates the Beats per Minute (Bpm) of that song. which is essential to work out the bpm of 1 track to mix the speed with that of the opposite deck.

- Cd/usb/sd, changes the mode of system reading. from CD to USB or SD card.

I really hope this general guide to using the Audioline ProDJ MDex3 has helped!
Peace. Marc.
