Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

PA Mixer I have a Peavey XR-1200D powered mixer that works ok for a few minutes and then starts to make a loud crackling noise. The noise is before the main master volume and monitor sliders because it can be turned down when they are pulled right down. I haven't been able to source a schematic for this unit on the internet either, even from Peavey! Any hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance... Gord.

All mechanical switches such as sliders and pots will get noisy after time. They get mildew and tarnish on contacts. Get a can of WD-40 and spray all switches and pots inside. You can do this by inserting the straw nozzle into slider switch slot or pot space where wires and attach. Spray briefly (short burst), then work control to both extremes of travel.

I want to record using Tascam with my peavey xr1220 mixer


What Tascam recorder are you using? If you are multitracking you will be unlikely to be able to use this mixer. Otherwise get a phono lead to fit the tape out and suitable connections for the Tascam recorder at the other end. This will allow you to record the main mix but unless you are a solo act or putting everything through the PA this will probably be pretty useless to you.

Hello,

I need a bit more information but from what i can tell it's about the power supply capacitors issue, as this devices are known to develop such kind of humming annoying noise when they go under the specified value, let me know further,

When using my peavey mixer XR212 in a live musical duo over the past 8 weeks of using it bought new we are getting a loud high pitched hissing sound when we sing loudly.We assume this may be the reverb...


Hi, most times when you use a mixer for too long and don't service it or take it to be serviced,itmight one day develop a fault by it self..

If i may ask,when have you taking it for servicing? If never,please do..

Sometimes dust entering into a mixer can make it malfunction.....

Since you know how to use the mixer properly,you don't have problem with that ok, Just take itto a repair man for servicing and he might tell you if something else is wrong with it after servicing it..

Take care..

Useing a Peavey XR 800F Powered PA Mixer/Amp which develops distortion on output after around 60 minutes. Also had gear linked to all inputs at the time, three mics, 2 guitars and keyboard. Any ideas...


First of all confirm if the speaker impedance is not lower then the recommended Ohms at the back of the Mixer speaker socket.You can use an 8 Ohms speaker on a 4 Ohms amplifier but not vise versa .
Next see if the fan on the mixer works. If not the Amp is getting very hot and this will lead to unwanted distortion. You can confirm if its a heat related issue by playing the mixer at low volumes for more than an hour and see if it distorts.

During performance, the monitor channel started giving loud noises and no music anymore. The mains channel was playing normally. 15 minutes later, the unit started giving a burned smell and I switched it...


Likely a failure of one of the amps and now more... You should have shut it down when it started making noises. This is NOT a DIY repair. Take it to a competent repair shop for service.
