My Micro Terror does the same ****...cuts out with gain on full and volume up to 7 or higher..all the reviews show this amp to power a 4x12 with controls on full. It sucks

You MAY be exceeding the capability of the unit causing the thermal protect of the PA chip to shutdown. A 15 Watt amp is NOT going to make a lot of noise unless you have super-efficient speakers that are say 15 inch ones in decent cabinets. You still will be limited in sound level. Just because the gain control goes to a paticular number doesn't mean the amp can take it !!! Mpost of these use 7 terminal amp chips about the size of a TO220 transistor. Heat sinks are OFTEN very inadequate.

Trying to record a mix through a peavey board. I do not get a high pitch hum until I click rec on my Mac. I am connected via usb to the mixer board. Any suggestions on what I might could try to stop this...


First, check your levels on the console. Is anything turned up high, channels, gain settings on channels? Check and see if the noise exists whith the main outputs muted or turned down. If it goes away it is a fader or gain setting on a channel. If it persists, then you have a co nection issue with the USB . Try a different cable. Make sure the Mac is on the same electrical circuit as the mixer, or if it is on battery, try adding it on the electrical circuit with the mixer. See if location of the mixer to the computer makes a difference as well. They may be too close to each other. Hopefully one of these things will fixya.

When setting up xr8600 is it best to start mains and monitors master at 0DB?


1. Turn the main and monitor volumes all the way down (off). Plug a cd player into channel 9/10 and play a track of music of your liking. With the main/monitor volumes still off, adjust the gain on 9/10 until the clip light turns on, then back it down until the clip light just turns off. Put the channel volume at 12 o' clock.
2. With the music still playing, turn up the mains to the desired listening level first, and then adjust the graphic eq until the music sounds good in the room. Remember or mark the position of the volume control. Do not use the channel eq on 9/10 for music that has been mastered properly, leave the eq flat. Once this step is completed then you have now set the main eq.
3. Repeat the same for monitors. Turn off the main volume and then bring up the monitor main volume to the desired level first, then set eq. Now your monitor eq is set properly. Remember or mark the position of the monitor volume.
4. Set up microphone - plug a mic into channel 1 with volume all the way down. Speak or sing into the microphone and adjust the GAIN until you see the clip light, then back down a litttle on the gain. Put the monitor and main volumes back up to the mark from step 2. Now adjust the volume and monitor send on the mic channel to the desired loudness first before adjusting the mic channel eq. Use subtractive eq method to minimize distortion and feedback. ...i.e. if the mic is bassy then turn down the lows, do not ADD highs. If the mic needs bass, turn down the highs.

How to setup a vocals


Turn gain CCW. plug microphone in, mute the channel. turn gain CW until peak LED flashes (while singing loud!) and turn gain back a little bit.
Take the channel fader down, unmute the channel. Put masters at 0dB (near maximum) and adjust the loudness with the channel fader to what you like.
EQ: it always depends on your location. Keep it flat. You might like to reduce at about 200-300 Hz. Cut the low end (Hi Pass Filter = on) or if no HiPass reduce "bass" for about 6...10dB.
ok?

Still have sound through speaker with channel B gain input set to OFF


This could be fixed checking/changing the vol pot of the "B" channel, also i would highly recommend to clean all back switches, including Stereo/Bridge switch, which it should be outwards to operate in Stereo mode, let me know if i can help more.

My 412Hot Rod Deville has terrible humming/white noise when distortion channel is on


It doesn't happen often but I suspect that the high gain input jack is defective. With nothing plugged into either input jack part of the signal is grounded and there should not be any noise. It might be that plus a noisy preamp tube. Try swapping the first two tubes to see if there is less noise. Carefully bang your fist or use an insulated tool's handle to hear if the noise changes. It might be an intermittent solder connection as well.

I have a Peavey 8600 amplifier. It sounds great but when only operating vocals, in order to get the highs of your voice just right, the speakers put off a large amount of white noise. While singing, you...


There is not enough info here to provide a complete answer, but let me give you some background:

There will always be some hiss. This is due to general amplification where a small amount of noise is amplified along with the general signal. In most cases, the signal is strong enough to overpower any noise that is present (vocals in your example). This noise should not be that noticable in normal cases. If there is an automatic gain control in the line, this could account for it as with "silent" times, the gain will automatically be increased potentially to the degree where the noise is noticable.

Barring that scenerio, if the input signal is too low, the overall gain necessary to produce reasonable volume at the speakers will also be such that the noise is noticable. In order to track this down, please provide details about the current setup including:

1) Microphone make and model being used
2) Input being used on the mixer
3) Gain level being used for the mic channel
4) Gain level being used at the master level.

Problems with certain channels and there gain pots


I assume you are talking about an audio mixer, here's what i think:

I'm not sure about channels 12 and 16, but channels 6 and 9 seem like having some loose solder contacts, which usually occur with long term use - you need to remove the problematic channel strips and check the solder contacts on any of the pots / switches / connectors that protrude through the top panel - resolder any loose or bad solder contacts (i usually resolder ALL pins on ALL connectors, pots and switches just to be sure).

As for the lower gain on CH12 - see if the mixing slider is connected via wires, if so, compare it to the connections on other channels, see if there is a loose wire or if the wires are connected in a wrong way (i had a "lower gain" issue with a mixer once that turned out to be a wrongly connected mixing slider - i obviously wasn't the first person to repair that mixer...)

Channel 16: check input preamp IC, could be a bad electrolytic filter capacitor or other components, possibly a faulty IC.

Hope some of this helps...

Mackie CR1604 has a consistent click at hi gain


Without hearing the noise or seeing it on a scope, I can't say for sure, but this type of noise can come from a number of sources. If there is a high signal level on one bus, you could be getting some cross-talk from that channel onto the channel with the higher gain setting. Try to track this down a bit by experimentation. For example, do you hear this with NO connections at all, but with the gain turned up on one channel?

Please try a few things to narrow this down a bit and I'll try to provide you with some options.

Thanks,
Dan

MG100HDFX Amp - crunch setting seems too loud


There are 2 channels, Which means there are 2 sets of knobs ... One for clean and one for crunch. Start out with a low master volume and set up the crunch, Then the clen and switch between the 2 and make adjustments until they match volume wise ... Then turn the master up.
