Bass drum by convention is ch1 on the board.
You need a good drum and a good mic

First set eq flat and pfl ch1, set gain control so drum just hits peak/or red when hit hard.

Send ch to drum group (1+2) on board, or route to master (L+R), depending on type board. Then listen to drum ONLY through the system, and adjust eq so it sounds good at low level then turn it up and keep it sounding good.
If it keeps peaking the ch then turn down gain.

There are toys (inserts) you can use noise gates and compressors if available,


Sound is objective and can not be learnt without doing it , good luck. remember good low level sound will always be better than really bad lound sound, start low make it good then make it loud.

Good drums do not need much eq. Get the drum right first.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

Behringer djx700 has no bass


Check that all the eqs are set not to cut bass, check there are no effects on and that the XPQ is off. If you still have the problem how sure are you there is no bass coming from the mixer? Have you tried it with another amp? We had one hire customer who had the same problem you describe and his amp had a crossover and it was set to act as a mid/top amp and wasn't giving him any bass, unsurprisingly, switching it back to full range sorted it.

Why won't both my turntables play out of my mixer?


I am guessing but it sounds like a gorse impedance mismatch. You should never connect two outputs together unless they are specifically designed for that. Since you are listing to mono why not send each output to the Base Amp the other to the cabinet. That should resolve the problem.

What is the best way to run a Bass thrue the mixer , Mike the Amp or directley thrue the mixer, we had problems with a clear sound?


The easiest way is to take the line out from the bass amp and connect it to the line in socket of the mixer ( not the XLR Mic in ). This will give a clean and flat sound which you will have to customize using the Mixer tone control and not the bass amp controls.

You will need at least a 24 channel mixer to give you spare channels. You also need an active crossover and a snake. The advice you need is too much to include here so I am including some links:http://mixonline.com/live/FixIts/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_sound_mixing, http://mixinglivesound.com/blog/tag/outdoor-concerts/,http://mixinglivesound.com/blog/, and http://www.scribd.com/doc/11435651/Beginners-Guide-to-Mixing-Sound. You may need more monitors than you are planning on and you might consider in ear monitoring.

Can you directly hook a sr16 to a peavey bass speaker cabinet using the output mono on the sr16 to send or retrn on the cabinet?


You can, however a bass speaker cabinet will NOT handle the higher pitch sounds needed for cymbals and snares, etc. You would connect it to the return AND doing so would DISABLE the other inputs of the bass speaker cabinet.

If you want both a guitar and drum machine into the cabinet, you need at least a small mixer or a speaker cabinet that can take two channels input simultaneously.

Plugging into the "return" of the cabinet DISCONNECTS the power amp from the preamp section in the cabinet.

Problem with MixerInputs


I have pretty much the same setup, as in snare and bass into the xlrs. You can change the physical jumper positions on the sound card, to give you a lower gain, as in mic/line (details in the manual) This lowers the input gain. Unfortunately, this can sometimes be too low. It's one or the other.
