Behringer MX 3242x Mic input not working

I have a Behringer MX 3242x, which is, in general, a wonderful front end for my Pro Tools/002R setup.  However, one of the channels appears to have a defective mic preamp.  A line signal works fine, but with just a mic the preamp gain pot does nothing to boost the input. How difficult is it to replace either an individual channel strip or the mic preamp?

Unfortunately, the way the mic preamp and gain control are surface mount components on the PCBoard, it's unlikely you'll be able to do it yourself. Best take it to an authorized Mackie repair shop, or send it back to Mackie.

I got a behringer 3242x mixer without a power supply unit. which model can i use?


You need the correct rackmount psu, rated at 150 watts, I think it uses more than one rail volts so you can't use any old supply.

I have a behringer 2442 usb and i cannot record my voice with pro tools? i, using windows xp everything works except record it wont pick up my voice threw the mic? i went to behringer.com for the drivers...


If it's a problem with the drivers, when you go to the manufacturer's website to download them, merely type in the exact product you have and the website should give you the specific driver/s for your product. If you go to the icon for XP's volume and recording tools, make sure that you've engaged the mic to function and that it functions at a sufficient level. You can find those tools under Control Panel, and then select SOUND, and then select RECORDING to adjust the mic functions.

I am using pro tools 8 LE. I have a blue bluebird condenser microphone. the cable going into the mic is a male 3 pronged end. and the end going into my avid mbox mini is a normal ending (the ones that look...


The mbox mini is usb powered, wont work without power so your mac or pc must be powered on and connected. The blue led will be on when powered. Assuming you have the the appropriate cables, you want to make sure the condenser is plugged into the Mic/Line input. (Input 1 on the back of the mbox mini). All condenser mics require phantom power, so engage the +48V switch. Also make sure the DI (direct input) switch is not engaged. The input gain control is located on the front of the mbox... There needs to be speakers connected to the 1/4 output jacks on the back of the mbox or headphones on the front for sound output. Use the large knob for monitor volume control.
In protools: Create a Stereo Master fader track
Create a mono audio track
Set the input of the mono audio track to Mic/Line 1 Arm the track for record (click & make sure the R is red)
You should getting levels and sound output from your condenser.

I have a Behringer Mic C-1U and its not powering up!


How to Operate a Behringer C-1U

The Behringer C-1U is a USB condenser mic for recording individual instruments. A condenser microphone is a mic that uses vibrations produced by sound to change the distance of internal plates that produce signal. Condenser mics typically require an extra change, known as phantom power, to operate. Since the C-1U is USB powered, phantom power is not needed. The Behringer C-1U has a frequency response that favors sounds around the 10KHz range. This heightens the clarity of recorded signals due to the microphone's treble boost.

Things You'll Need:

* Computer with USB 2.0 port
* USB cable
* Recording software

Instructions

Turn on the computer. When the operating system loads, connect the microphone.

Install any necessary drivers for the C-1U. This will happen automatically when the device is connected.

Select the Behringer C-1U as an input source in any desired audio software. In Windows, click the "Volume" icon in the task bar to open the mixer. Select the C-1U as the primary input. On Macs, use the "Audio/MIDI Setup" in the "System Preferences" menu to select the C-1U as the primary input


Note: make sure you activate the phantom power on the mic. That's the only way to power up the microphone.

Have a nice day.

Behringer won't give schematics except to their service agencies... I have tried... I usually wind up tracing out enough of the circuit to repair it.

How to connect behringer ultragain pro mic


Here is the manual:http://www.behringer.com/EN/downloads/pdf/MIC2200_P0054_M_ENG.pdf Plug your microphone into the input using a proper cable. Plug another balanced cable into the output on the back and plug it into a microphone input on the mixing board. If your mixing board already has phantom power, disable it for that input as the MIC2200 has phantom power. Read the manual carefully and take note of the directions for phantom power and balanced cables. Make sure you follow the directions carefully. If you need the manual in a different language look the MIC2200 up under products at Behringer.com and you can download in pdf format in many different languges.

Adobe Audition 3 Not Sensing Mic


Check the input and output settings. Look in the preferences or settings menu for "i/o settings" or "i/o setup." You're going to set it from the default internal mic input to this one. It sounds like it may be that simple.

Where are the trim controls set?
Those mics use both phantom and battery power; are the mic switches set to phantom?
Try using the CD/Tape outputs to the FCA202
