To get stereo you must record in stereo or "PAN" individual inputs to one side or the other to create seperation. Your device is NOT broke.

Read your manual about panning.

My Yamaha mm6 doesn't work stereo, just mono. when u put 2 cables it works from right channel, but if u put to the left channel, works from the left. I don't get it.


There is probably a setting that is wrong. The left channel is the default for mono operation. Look in your user manual regarding "PAN" which controls the output going side to side. You MAY be "panned" clear to the right. When you plug into the left, it is the default so in spite of being panned right, they would send signal to the left IF nothing is plugged into right.

No rim on pd125 one td10and tdw chart


Make sure you are using TRS cable (three conductor that has a tip-ring-and sleeve) to connect to the module. This look like a stereo 1/4 inch cable instead of mono. If you use the wrong cable, the rim shot will not work. Most others will be mono cables but this one.

I can only hear one side of my headphone with the Samson S-Amp! wheni pull the headphone cable out i can hear on both ears. what kind of connection do i need to listen in stereo?


Are you using a STEREO input cable? Is the source of the audio stereo? The stereo cable will have three connections on the plug... the sleeve, the ring and the tip.

If you only have mono source or using a mono cable you will only get sound in the left headset. Pulling the plug part way out will sometimes contact both connection so you will hear both.

If your source is mon, you will need a special cable that connects the mono signal to both sides of the input plug, that is the ring AND the tip.

Parker fly acoustic pickup quit. When the red button is depressed all my gain is gone from the magnetic pickups and from the acoustic pickup.


If you are using a mono (2 contact) guitar cable then the output from magnetic & piezo pick-ups should be mixed together. If you are using a stereo cable (3 contacts - tip, ring sleeve) then it will be stereo with one signal sent down each core of the cable with common/ground on the sleeve.
If you are using a stereo cable into a mono amp socket it is possible that a short is occurring, which would cut the signal. I would also check your cable for poor/ shorting connections. The signal level could also drop if the pick-ups were out of phase with each other.
For more information on balancing the levels between the pick-ups see the user's manual here

I Plugged in this cord in one of the channels to play my ipod so i can recored some parts of a song but when i played the songs they werent coming out as they are suppose to sound , it sounded all weird i...


The IPOD generates STEREO signals and you would have to use a 1/8 inch STEREO to 1/4 inch WYE cable into TWO channels of the mixer.
If you use a MONO cable it shorts out one of the sudio amps in the IPOD and will creates distortion.
When you use the two channels to accept the 1/4 inch plugs of the WYE cable, you will set the PAN controls of the two channels you use to opposite ends to maintain the stereo signal in the mixer.

How can I connect my mackie mixer 1202-vlz3 to my mac mini


use the xlr (3 prong) main left and right outputs of the board. get xlr to 1/4 inch cables. one end will be 3 prong, to plug into the mixer, then the other end will be a mono 1/4 inch plug, like a big headphone plug. Then you have to get a dual mono 1/4 inch to stereo 1/8 inch adapter and plug it noto the line in. if there is no lone in, but a microphone jack instead, you will get a mono signal instead of a stereo signal. in this case, just use 1 channel of the mixer, instead of both of the stereo outs, and use a single mono 1/4 inch to mono 1/8 inch adapter.

the xlr to 1/4 inch cables can be purchased at a music store. the 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapters will probably need to be purchased at radio shack.

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SET UP MY ROLAND JUNO D WITH MY AKAI MPC 1000, PARTICULARLY HOW TO SET UP THE MIDI ON THE ROLAND.


Simple way is MIDI out from Juno to MIDI in on MPC, then (depending on how you want to work), connect MIDI out from MPC to the in on the Juno. If you do this you MUST turn local control off on the Juno or else you'll get double triggers (internal + msg in from MPC). Now to record sequences on MPC , set MIDI to as track in setup window (on the 2500, this is accessed by pressing MODE then pad 9, then press button under the corresponding tab [on LCD]) then set your MIDI channel by port, meaning if your MIDI cable is physically connected to out A, in your LCD in bottom right corner it will show as follows: 1A. This indicates you are transmitting on MIDI channel 1; port A. Remember, MIDI IS NOT AUDIO!!!!! Since the Juno is a synth and not a workstation, all transport controls are handled by the MPC, that's pretty much it... Hope this helps a little, enjoy!

P.S. Go to mpc-forum.com its THE sh**! They also have links for their e-book I have one for the 2500 and its awesome!!!

Epiphone BB King Lucille guitar treble pickup in mono mode


Realize that when you plug into the one jack it disconnects the fingerboard pickup from the mix.

DO NOT USE "stereo" cables as it is intended to use TWO MONO cables, one for each side of the stereo.

IF you plug into the one jack that will connect to the bridge pickup, it will disconnect the fingerboard pickup from the mix BUT leave the fingerboard on its own jack.
That same jack will have BOTH fingerboard and bridge pickups IF the second jack (bridge) is not plugged into.

This is according to the schematic. If you find that yours works backwards, then either the schematic is wrong OR your guitar pickups may be electrically swapped.

Confuse about the jack


Both stereo and mono jacks will work fine on the inputs, any guitar or mic lead will work a treat.

You can use stereo jacks for the outputs too, but to keep it simple just use a mono jack in the L out and a mono jack in the R out.
