Get a dbx 400x Program Route Selector or something like it. (eBay). It will allow separate independent attachment and selection via front-panel switches of three processors and three tape decks to a single Tape Monitor loop; and the processors can be placed either before or after the processors or source, again via switches. If you have more processors you can always line some of them up in-line on a single processor loop. I do it on mine.

How can I connect A BBE482i Sonic max. to this mixer amp and how to hook it up, will it help my sound system I have two Pr15 mains and two PV12 monitors


Go from the main out on the front panel to the left bbe input then from the left bbe output to the power amp 1 input. Then do the same from the monitor out to the right side and back to power amp 2. BBE units can enhance your sound, but too much will tend to sound brittle.

When I burn my mastered tracks to CD, the volume is so quiet it can hardly be heard at all. The sliders are up almost full.


I believe you need to install an BBE Sonic Maximizer to boost your signal recording before your DP-02

My G Major 2 has a signal from unit to mixer and from the mixer into another board. All is well as far as the chain is concerned. The guitar tuner works fine but for some reason I cannot hear any effects....


Have you remembered to use BALANCED TRS cables in and out of this unit?

Your description does not give us enough info about how you have this chained together.

DO REMEMBER that ALL interconnected equipment MUST be powered from the sme source or receptacle for system safety. It sounds like you have mixers tied into mixers. Check the power distribution. Many destroy equipment because stage power is used one place and mixer power is taken at the back of a room for example. The pro's know better than to do this and a power distributor using extensions to feed the remote devices are used.

SOME of the effects involve stereo to create, and the output of this device MUST maintain stereo all the way to the stereo main speakers. If your mixer goes to another board, it MUST do so as stereo and if they run it to two channels, those MUST be "panned" to opposite sides. That ALSO goes for your mixer itself... if you use two channels, they must be panned.

Setting up a Behringer PMP5000


You can do the effect via the "POWER AMP INSERT" jacks.

Use TRS interconnects to yout effects unit.

If the effects unit does not have TRS type bi-directional in/out ports, you MAY need to make special cables to connect the units. Refer to figure 4.5 on page 9 of your PMP5000 user manual for INSERT connections.

Sonic maximizer


To use the maximizer as a send effect, connect the effect send (1 or 2) to the input on your maximizer, then connect the output from your maximizer back into any input A thru G on your 2488. You then assign the track you want to maximize to the correct send (1 or 2) using the send key and then assign the input to a track to record to.

To use a maximizer as an input effect (assuming guitar) simply plug yoiur guitar into the maximizer and then patch the maximizer to input H (Hi Z input of the front panel of the 2488). Assign input H to a track to record and this will record the maximized input signal.

if the multitrack doesnt have built in effects you need to but an extrenal vocal effects processor that you can wire up to it. try lexicon products, they offer really good realistic vocal effects rack units.
