Phonic mixer not connecting to my PC

Got the new phonic helix 18 universal but unable to connect it to my pc. Here is me setup
PC: Dell optiplex 330, intel core 3.2ghz, 1GB Ram, 160GB HD Firewire card: ADS Pyro 64 R2 PCI card
Downloaded drivers from phonic website: Version 4.1.8 and 2.44 for firewire and 4.1.8 for USB but none of them has recognized the mixer so far! Tried with the firewire/usb switch at the back both at right and wrong positions, still did not work. Switched the PC on and off, did the same to the mixer still nothing. Any ideas?

How to connect speakers to phonic mr3243 mixer


You would connect the xlr left and right outputs to a power amplifier and then the speakers to the power amp. The mixer will not drive a set of speakers by itself.

Why do i have echo when i play music on my phonic powerpod 820 mixer


Visit this link to download the manual if you don't have it already. https://phonic.box.net/shared/crqxhlhmmz
This mixer has a multi-effects processor onboard, but the key is understanding the audio signal chain. There is a chance that you have your input audio going through an undesired effect, but without knowing your setup (input source, connections, mixer settings), it would be difficult to pinpoint the problem.

I get a distorted sound from my speakers throug a Phonic Helix Board. It is connected on a PC through Fire Wire. The distortion is also there while using microphones or other inputs (CD-players etc.). It...


Hallo landgenoot ;)

It seems it is a power supply problem; distorted sound, no meters, solo buttons not working, headphones low level and distorted. One of the power supply voltages might be too low or even missing. The Helix series mixers use mainly 4 supply voltages: + 15 V and - 15 V for the analog part (audio), + 5 V for the DSP and logic and +48 V only for the phantom power. If for example the + or - 15 V is too low, clipping of the positive or negative parts of the waveform (dependng on which voltage is too low) will occur. If possible, first measure the voltages coming out of the power supply. You could use a metal part of a jack as ground reference.
For the FireWire board an extra voltage supplied by the switched PSU is used. It is specified as +12,2 V, but I measured 14 V. This voltage is lowered to + 5 V by a resistor on the FW board and a 7805 regulator. (Not very efficient!) But as far as I can see, the FW voltage is not the problem here. I have some service documentation of the Helix series mixers (12, 17 and 24, so if you need more you can conatct me: frankdevries [at] versatel.nl.

Groeten, Frank.

Phantom power will not wor on my phonic 620 cd jacks will work but when i plug in a mic it will not work help


I assume you are using CONDENSER microphones, as these are really the only ones that can use Phantom power. Also do NOT use any MONAURAL connections to MIC jacks while using Phantom power.

I have a Phonic Helix Board 24 firewire MK2 When i open it all the peak led stays open I think the power suply is busted I need an expert


The power supply uses three, 3 terminal regulator chips. You should find +/- 15 volts and +5 volts DC from those. There are two fuses, one for each polarity. If one of those is blown, that would cause the problem and one would need to find WHY it blew before replacing it.
You need to find a competent electronics repair person.

It may be your old computer was running XP operating system and your new one Win7... There is a lot of incompatibility with different operating systems. You can try searching for a compatibile driver. If you cannot find one, the best thing might be to back-step to your old compatible OS and driver.

Ieee 1394 bus host controller driver missing in HP


Such are updates! Many have experienced this.

There is a way to back step the drivers IF you can see the device, but it sounds like you can't see the device period..

If you have a restore point on your computer (it is in PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES/SYSTEMTOOLS/RESTORE)
You can back step the computer if you or an automatic system restore point has been created.

Otherwise, go to the HP site and downlad and install the needed driver.

Phonic Helix Board sound problems


You don't specify which model Phonic mixer in question.
Is it a powered mixer ? And are you plugging your speakers into the speaker outputs ? If it's not a powered mixer and you're plugging speakers into the Line Outputs, you're not using a power amplifier between the line outputs and your speakers - this won't work.
If it is a powered mixer and you are plugging speakers into the speaker output connectors and still getting little or no sound, check your speaker cables and the speakers themselves by plugging them into known good amps.
