I have an old KoolSound Mixer and decided to get a
I have an old KoolSound Mixer which was used mainly for karaoke sessions, (sometimes using 6 microphones at once) from music from my PC and decided to get a newer model. Sent 2 x behringer models back because of this problem and now have a mixer of their own brand. Problem is, although my old mixer still works - the new mixer, (cabled exactly the same way through RCA red/white cables) - I get no sound ?? Cable out from PC microphone socket to Mixer and Mixer to Amplifier. If I swap cables back to KoolSound Mixer, everything is fine.
I cannot be that unlucky to have 3 faulty mixers sent to me, can I ??Maybe the other Behringer mixers were OK after all - but I could not get a solution from their Help Team before returning them both back.
Incidentally, if take the Mixer out of the setup and RCA cable direct from Amp to PC, I get sound coming through my speakers.
Is it possible that the newer mixers have to be cabled using a different method, (Other Cables) and if so what do I need ??

It is much easier to use an analog mixer and microphone thru the mixer. I would plug the microphone into the mike input on the mixer and then the Karaoke machine to stereo LINE inputs on the the Mixer, then Mixer Output or Tape Output on the mixer to analog LINE IN on the MiniDisc recorder.
Let me know if you need more info.
Always use echo and reverb, or just reverb for inexperienced singers. If I remember right this is from effect 19 but this is a very inflexible set-up with no control over the effects, just presets. You'll need to listen and decide what is best. You may also try chorus as with a decent effects unit this can be very effective plus a bit of reverb and echo.
Different songs like different effects and we will chop and change even in a single track when live mixing professional acts.
The effects or FX section is on the top right of the mixer. On your vocal channels find the yellow knob marked FX and turn it to 0. Choose the effect you need using the Program knob (top right) for karaoke this will probably be 03 or 06. Start singing and turn up the yellow knob marked 3 - FX under AUX Sends until the LEDs above them hit -0db, no higher. Now find the button marked FX - Main Mix and make sure it is UP. Turn up the yellow knob (3 - FX) next to it until you can hear enough echo on your mic.
A good standard 90 wt oil is what is ok for the gearcase. This is an old email from a hobart service tech and they recomend a special oil ordered from them. So you can decide which you want to use. "EXXON SPARTAN EP-150 (6 oz)" in the M802 planetary. Hobart part #102973-13. This IS NOT a food grade oil. If you mixer is leaking you shouldhave it serviced. Service, parts , lubricants and information canbe obtained by contacting your local Hobartoffice in Pittsburgh@ (412) 788-5380. Steve Davis Field Engineer -
What devices will the M1 Samson work with? Only Karaoke machines? If I plug it into my laptop will I have to use an ap to do karaoke or could my daughter sing along with youtube videos and that kind of thing?
Yep! Get a decent audio interface that attaches to the PC with a USB connection and uses BALANCED lines to your mixer. I use a UA-25EX Roland/cakewalk as an example. (about $200 and there are cheaper units such as M-Audio Fast Track MKII ) Note these interfaces BOTH record and playback with two channels for stereo.
Essentially the audio board that is in PC's and Laptops are too near the switching noise of the processor and some of that is just bound to get into the audio lines as they don't even have balanced audio lines from the computers. Make sure you use either TRS or XLR balanced cables from whatever interface you get. Also connect ALL interconnected equipment to the same power source or receptacle. You can try to reduce the buzz with the mixer EQ's with what you have, but that sacrifices audio quality.
The question is, do you have the driver for your Behringer? the Music should be navigate from your computer Not from your mixer. If so, try to install the driver for your behringer and configure you library with designated software from your behringer.
Ronnie, The numark mixer will not project CD+G graffix on the pc. You can only send the audio from the mixer to the pc. To use karaoke on the pc you need files that re MP3+CDG or CD+G discs. Most karaoke systems only support TVs through a video line usually RCA connections. In order to get video to your PC you need a video card or TV tuner card installed. Most people use it in the reverse having their music files on the PC and then streaming to the mixrer and then the audio speakers. Winamp with MEXP and the CD+G plug installed should work nicely for you. Let me know if I can help further I have been a mobile DJ for 20+ years
Mic to Mixer, and Mixer to Laptop? Or is your mic connected directly to your laptop?
To do this properly, you will need a secondary audio input device of some kind that accepts line level input. Microphone inputs are intended for low level signals, and are not going to accept the input form a mixer properly. (you can get it to work, but it will generally be distorted)
There are various USB or PCMCIA audio input card options that aren't too expensive. Once you have that, you would need to route your music and microphone through your mixer, and the output of the mixer to your audio input device.
it sounds like theres a switch on your mixer to lower the music when the mics switched on, called talkover.when you switch the mic off the music will return to normal levels. find the switch on the mixer and set it to 'on' not talk
