Volume faders in mixer don't respond.

Is the volume level in CUBASE LE automatic? When I use the volume faders the volume level is not changed. How do I get CUBASE LE to respond to the volume faders? I have a Dell laptop running Windows Vista Business.

    My problem is that I can't adjust the input volume at all. Not by using the mixer, the volume line on the track or the volume control to the left side of the track.

I hate to attempt to offer any suggestions for a person using CUBASE LE, since I am not a very successful user, myself. However, I may have a suggestion for you. First, the level sliders in CUBASE are not automatic (unless there is some setting I'm unaware of).

Are you attempting to change the volume of a track that is on your timeline? If so, I don't believe the sliders effect that. Instead, levels are changed by a "rubberband" method.

On your existing track, (the one you wish to modify volume on) you will notice a small + in the lower left hand corner, near the edge of your screen. If you click on that, the track is enlarged, and you will see another version of your audio track with a black line drawn horizontally through it. That line may be dragged up or down to increase or decrease volume.

Right now, my system is not working, so I can't quite remember the procedure, but you can place points on that black line to adjust volume up and down for select portions of your track, and not the entire track.

I think that's done by first clicking on the "R" associated with that track. Then, your cursor becomes capable of placing points, and you can adjust volume between the placed points.

I hope this helps. Best of luck.

What could be causing a strange static sounding noise in the headphones only when pressing PFL on any channel.


The "PFL" Stands fo r"Pre Fader Level". Just in case you did not realize. so when you press the "PFL" button , and the red light goes out?, You're saying that the hissing goes away and that you have clarity. Yes? and the volume presents no issues? Also correct? Part of that simply, is with the PFL in the on position. You are engaging the fader for one, which will add to an already boosted signal ( the the fader is turned Up?). also you may have your Clip set incorrectly. to set this you turn PFL off, then at your signal input level Dial (usually at the very top in-line with your fader. _ set the volume on your device, then input clip level on the board \ to where the clip light comes on. not a steady light, but a blinking light so make it steady, then back it off a hair. Okay? this whole time make sure your mains are down. or off at the faders. Once clip is set., PFL is in off position, gradually turn your mains up to level. Now, the PFL is for when you have more than one signal. say from an instrument on another channel. unless you have that? No need to use the PFL. If you do have an instrument in line,. then, before you turn PFL on,make sure that your fader on that channel is turned off. -turn on your PFL, then gradually bring that to level. never messing with the mains level.

I know that is a lot of info. but it is a process. that should eliminate any hissing you may have heard.
Good luck!!

How do you connect tape deck to pmp 4000


Hi, use the RCA/Phono connections for the Tape In & Out. The level will be set by the Master/Main fader. If that is not so convenient (& assuming it's a PMP4000?) there should be a "Main 2" output & connections with the level controlled separately to Main 1 via a Knob / Rotary control over to the right above the "Mono" fader... Hope that helps... Good Luck!

You must adjust the record level from the input device - i.e. mixer or soundcard. There is no input level control within Cubase. It is often the case, however that the problem lies with the backing track being too loud.

Faders not working properly on am844d right channell goes in out when I wiggle the main L/R fader. Some of the channel faders are eractic. The level of volume is not responding right to fader...


You probably wrecked the faders putting De-Oit in them!!! NEVER use that in pot and faders... It is for switch contacts only.
You have ONE chance to save them. From Home Depot get a can of CRC226 in the electrical dept. Put some of that using the spout into each fader near the middle and work the faders. The CRC226 costs about $2.70 a can. Make sure it is the 226 as there are OTHER CRC products there and only 226 is the one that is suitable.

The De-Oxit will have cleaned out the lube of the faders and if you are unlucky, one or more of the wipers will have folded back which is fatal... The CRC226 is an electrical lube that I have restored faders and pots with... It has many other uses including lubing plier joints...

Which particular mic?

Go through the signal chain. Mic to mixer to pc.

All the level changes are suspect, what busses are you using...

e.g.
mic to channel 1 on mixer.
trim on mixer 1
fader on mixer 1
L/R balance
fader on L/R
which output from mixer are you using

Then the windows mixer (start/run "sndvol32.exe")
adjust the volume, WAVE, mic, etc.

My first instinct is the windows mic level.

How do I adjust the volume when I plug my mp3 player in to the phonos with out the main slider


In a word, you DON'T... The main fader is the ONLY volume control in the loop going into the TAPE inputs.

If you need another volume control, then either use volume control if availlable on the tape/MP3 player.

Your other option is to use a splitter cable from the MP3 into one of the stereo input channels which do have level controls.

Now if you want to have the tape input level INDEPENDENT of the main slider, that is not really possible either. Adding a mixer AFTER the mains could accomplish this, but that is extra hardware.

DJM 400 Keep going into over on the channel and the master volume


To keep your levels down keep the TRIM don which is the gray knob. Also keep the hi, mid, and low knobs at the medium level. The control cables are for using the fader start function.

Carver stereo amp will only play


That should be normal. The main inputs usually go directly to the power amp. If you want volume control, put a mixer with faders beween them... Radio Shack used to have some inexpensive mixers.

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?
