    Good-day, Maybe, I try to get the opinion from other experts.
    Our PEAVEY Mixer (16-Chl) has Insert jacks from chl. 1-4.
    I want to know how I'm going to connect my compressor/limiter and its function in my Karaoke System.
    If i connect it in chl 1 INSERT, using Y connection send/return, will it be efective for chl 2,3 & 4 also?

    Thanks again. God Bless you all.

    To Priyabrat, Maklean & Eagle 338,

    Thank you very much for the fastest response. Im going to connect my compressor tomorrow following your instruction.

    Im sure this will be successful. I just want you also to help me how to adjust the front panel controls of my compressor. Frankly speaking, I have little experience only in operating sound mixers. i still have to learn a lot before i can mix sound properly.

    We are using our equipment for Karaoke & with little live band instruments.

    God Bless Fixya team always.

Your mixer has auxilaries, but no aux out?!

Sorry i cant imagine that lol.

When you do find your Aux out's, Take a cable from your aux out, to your FX unit input, and your effects unit outs into one of the spair stereo inputs.

I have a crazy idea if you actually wanted to make your channels into aux sought of things.

1) Use the first click method (insert a TRS cable into the insert point, but do not fully insert it. Insert until you hear one click) to insert a jack into the insert (on channel 1 for ease of an example) to provide you with a direct out.

2)Take the other end of the jack and plug it into a line in of one of the spare channels (lets say channel 13 ok?).

3) Take another direct out (same first click thing) from channel 13.

4)Take the other end of no. 13's direct out cable and plug it to the Input of your effects processor.

5) Take the stereo outs of your effects processor and plug them into the other spare stereo track (eg. 15 and 16).

Now get a signal coming through channel one, turn it up, and turn channel 13 up as well. This should result in a signal being sent the effects processor. You can now use channel 13 to control the gain of the signal being sent to the processor with out effecting the recorded signal's gain. Now turn up channels 15 and 16 and turn up the mix on the effects processor to 100%. You should have effects for ONE channel ONLY

Now this isnt perfect because the effect i pre fader (ie. when you change the gain of the fader, it does not change the gain that is sent to your effects processor) but it should work. And also you can only have one signal being sent to the effects processor at one time (argh). But hey, it should work if you wanted to just add an effect to vocals only.

    Use a 1/4" TRS to TRS jack. Connect it to FP10's send 1 at the back and on the other end plug it into input 1 of the compressor. Take another 1/4" TRS jack and connect from the compressor's output 1 to FP10's return 1. Repeat the above steps for send and return 2.

    Alternately, you can use a 1/4" TRS to XLR jack and connect it into the XLR i/o of your compressor.

    Now mics(via XLR) or guitars(via 1/4") that are plugged into inputs 1 and 2 at the front of the FP10 will go thru the compressor.

    Points to remember:

    1. This method of connection is for using the compressor during recording only. To use it during mixing is entirely a different way of connection.

    2. The compressor has -10/+4 switches. Set it to +4.

    3. Guitar pedals that operate at instrument level should be connected to 1/4" inputs 1 and 2 only as these are instrument inputs. Those that operate at line level can go straight into the compressor if you wish to use it.

    Hope this helps

While not familiar with this unit I beleive you are right assuming that
you need to be working with a line level signal(post preamp) not a mic
level signal
there are several ways to do this
I also do not know your board or how convoluted a layout you are willing
to go through
Most boards that people who use compressors own(for live pa) have post
preamp "insert"points
failing that you can put your mic on channel 1 and send its signal to
the comp via the aux buss(not raising the channel one fader, but instead
send the signal out the aux to the compressor, then take the out of the
compressor into channel two(which you will not send any aux singal
from) and use the channel 2 fader as your mix level
or you could route the mic to a outboard preamp then compressor then
mixer input

if you hav e subgroups the mic channel could send out a subgroup to the
the only thing you do not want to do(for live pa) is place the comp
after the main mix out

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...

Here is a link to the manual: I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.

Peavey impulse 1015 horn cuts in and out

If the horn cuts out after some usage ...then its probably the limiter lamp that is gone .... the limiter lamp is switched into circuit once the " polyswitch " gets hot .... so at first the horn works ...then when the limiter lamp is switched in ...nothing !
