First, check your levels on the console. Is anything turned up high, channels, gain settings on channels? Check and see if the noise exists whith the main outputs muted or turned down. If it goes away it is a fader or gain setting on a channel. If it persists, then you have a co nection issue with the USB . Try a different cable. Make sure the Mac is on the same electrical circuit as the mixer, or if it is on battery, try adding it on the electrical circuit with the mixer. See if location of the mixer to the computer makes a difference as well. They may be too close to each other. Hopefully one of these things will fixya.

SOURCE: Lexicon alpha interface is recording a faint high pitched sound

Check for ground loops.

You MIGHT be able to cut the noise by setting the EQ's to clip the highs.

SOURCE: Our Peavey 32fx is not recognizing the memory

I wasn;t able to get a manual to download, however, a lot of these things MAX out at a 2Gb stick. If you try using larger, I suspect that might be the problem.

Blogs seem to indicate that the sticks are LESS than reliable and one has to remove a lot of effects due to CPU throughput being insufficient.

Make sure your memory stick is less than 2Gb

SOURCE: Connect xenyx 2442fx to computer

If you want to record in stereo, the quick and dirty way is to get a 1/4 inch stereo to 1/8 inch plug cable and go frrom the headphone output jack. (Use a Wye connector if you need to listen on the phones)

All the other outs are TRS and XLR balanced and the computer audio (mic) inputs are unbalanced. You would need special cables to connect those.

I want to record using Tascam with my peavey xr1220 mixer


What Tascam recorder are you using? If you are multitracking you will be unlikely to be able to use this mixer. Otherwise get a phono lead to fit the tape out and suitable connections for the Tascam recorder at the other end. This will allow you to record the main mix but unless you are a solo act or putting everything through the PA this will probably be pretty useless to you.

You MUST turn off the echo from the computer OR remove the sound card to line in connections. The tape out goes through the sound card and immediately back out to the tape in and around it goes for feedback.

I have the peavey xr 8600 and i wanna know how to connect an additional non powerd mixer to it ( i wanna use the peavey as an amp??


That's easily done. Simply connect the left(or right) output of your mixer to one of the channels on the peavey. Use any line input. Since the peavey is a mono system, there's no need sending a stereo mix to it.

This sounds like a ground loop. Make sure ALL (including the computer) interconnected devices are powered from the same receptacle. Make sure there are no lamp dimmers around as these can cause hum...

Using the USB connection to send the stereo mix to a computer


You have to insert a track into Reaper "arm" it. If you can't figure it out, I'd suggest posting in the Peavey forums.
