Question about The Music

Mackie Dl32r mixer. Using iPad to in ear monitors from time to time we loose control over an individual channel control only on certain send channels,

Last gig, drummer could not turn guitar down and guitar guy could not turn down trumpet. We switched the output for drummer from mon send 5 to 8 and then he was able to control guitar. This has happened a few times and the problem comes and goes. The iPad shows the fader is being slid down but the mixer does not respond by reducing volume. We did a reboot of mixer but it did not solve the problem. We are running version 4.5.3

SOURCE: No volume control with 2 faders on Mackie CR1604 mixer

If all other functions work for those channels, the most likely problem is the fader itself. These can fail and operate more like switches rather than faders. Without witnessing the behavior, I can not state that for sure. While these mixers are not the hardest to work on, they are time consuming. The faders can be purchased from Mackie directly. If you need to have this repaired, any shop that repairs audio gear should be able to erpair this for you. Where are you located?

How do i hook up monitors to mackie1604 vlz pro to where you can hear music and mike.


Plug either a powered monitor or amp and then speaker into one of the aux sends. Now adjust the monitor mix using the appropriate aux send pot on each of the channel strips you want to send to the monitor. Think of the aux send pots as faders for the monitor mix the same as the main fader for the ain mix.

Monitor Channel Making static sounds


Without hearing it it is difficult to be sure what is going on. What happens if you plug the main PA into the monitor channels, do you get the same? Are you trying to get too much into the monitors? static and popping are not the same to my ears, popping sounds more like you are hearing something that's there through the monitors that you're not hearing through the main mix as it may be masked. What frequency is the popping? Does it only happen when levels are high or when the singers are doing 'p' and 'b's etc? do you get it if you put the monitors on the main mix? Are you running the monitors into clipping (although I wouldn't expect this to create a popping? It sounds like a mix issue rather than a fault with hardware.

I use 5 out of 6 aux. for monitor...That leaves only 1 aux. for delay/reverb. is there another way to hook up delay/reverb to mixer?...SR24-4 mackie mixer...


Why are you not using the inserts? Either assign a sub channel to your effects unit or do it at a channel level. In either case using the insert.

I am trying to run a monitor using the Aux Send on a Mackie Board but even with the Master Aux Send turned up there is barely any sound coming out when I try to use my microphones. Also, I noticed that...


No there is no special cord. The aux you use for a monitor should be pre fader( that means the signal comes before the volume slider) turn the individual slider all the way down. Talk into the mike at the volume you would be singing at the loudest. Adjust the gain of that chanel up untill the clip light comes on. Now back it down so it dosent come on at your loudest. Now pick the aux you want to use. Turn it up 1/2 way, turn up the master aux send coresponding to the channel aux number 1/2 way you should get sound. If it's too loud turn it down if you need more turn it up. If you have any more questions, give me a call at the shop.

How can I set up my mackie 1402 mixer so I can have (2) monitor mixes


This unit has 2 AUX sends, both of which can be used as monitor mixes. The top controls on each channel determine the pre-fade level for each mix.

Conenct a cable from the AUX out (either 1 or 2) to an amp. The only restriction is that the level control is a knob rather than a slider.

If you have any other questions, please update this and I'll try to answer for you.

How to connect effects processor to mackie 1602 mixer


Should be an Aux 1 or 2 output jack on the right side of the mixer. You can come out of the 1 or 2 OUTPUT jack to the input on your processor, and then from the output of the processor to Effects return or to a channel input. By going to a channel input you can then blend the processor's signal with a slider into the sound system with the other channels, while adding tone if needed. By going back into the Effects return, you just blend it overall by adjusting the Effects return knob.
To feed the channels through the processor, turn the AUX 1 or 2 knob up on each individual channel you want to go through the processor. Make sure the AUX 1 (or 2 if you are using that) MASTER knob is turned up on the right side of the console, otherwise nothing will go to the processor. You should see the processors' input light showing signal, if not check your connections. Good luck

I have a mackie 24 channel mixer , I am trying to hook up my monitors. I need help I don't know how to do it. Recently lost our sound tech guy here at the church.


Decide if you want to use the AUX's or the SUB's for your monitors. (usually use the AUX).

Connect TRS cables from the appropriate AUX sends to thee amplifiers you use for your monitors or your powered monitors whichever you have.

Adjust the level using the AUX level controls for each channel to set your minitor mix.

Normally use the PreFader AUX's so monitor levels are set independent of the slide fader positions.

Here is a big hint for you: Search YouTube.com for "Soundboard" or "Soundboard setup". There are good videos there that might be different than your particular board, but there is enough commonality that you will soon be an expert!
