If you are looking for a straight audio solution Audacity is free and you can do lots with it. I was looking for recording software and got Reaper myself. It is a multitrack audio and midi recording program. It is free to try out and around $70.00 for the licence. One example is if you have a midi to usb adapter you can output midi from your XR-20 through the adapter into your computer into a channel on Reaper, record it as a track and work with it after that. You can edit it as midi or you can also record the audio from the XR-20 onto a track. With VSTi there are free synths on the Internet that you can use as FX for the track and run them using the midi track that you recorded. You can also run sample players that way. Here are some useful links: also In case you don't understand midi or recording here is another link to a site I highly recommend: ( It is listed as an attack site but I can vouch for the owner that it is absolutely not.) I downloaded the free Killer Home Recording Setting Up pdf and it is a wealth of free info. This site also has detailed explanations of Midi etc. I am a member of the forum(It is free to join as are the forums at the other sites I recommended). Joining forums is also a great way to meet users of the same gear as you. They are usually quite willing to help you as they have all been using that gear.

Sound dies off gradually for a second or two, then comes back. This happens often. Thanks.

It sounds like there is a thermal problem. If you can't make it happen by shaking, or banging on the amp. If it comes and goes with the shaking and banging then there is some loose connection.
If you still have trouble we here at Pro Line Music have a service department and can repair it.

Make sure you are NOT in looping mode. Make sure you do NOT have effects such as reverb inline to the amp and speakers. This will cause an echo of the note.

Chances are one of the power amps has shorted. Replacing the fuse probably fried additional components. Unless you are electronically adept this is NOT a DIY repair.

Expect that this is going to be an expensive repair as often quite a few transistors and other components fry when one goes in these power amps.

XR 8600 what color wire on the output connects

Peavey XR 8600?? Well it's 600w per ch. at 4 ohms/per side. So, whichever mode you use (Main, or Main/Monitor) you are best to have a 4 ohm total load for each channel of amplification. Ex.--Mains only, one 4ohm speaker per channel will give you 600W per side. Or two 8ohm speakers per channel in parallel, which makes a 4 ohm total load.

Main/Monitor mode---treat it the same way. one 4ohm, or two 8 ohms parallel. per channel.

Your best situation is to have a 4 ohm total load for each channel of amplification to get your 600W.

Parallel-- 8ohms each / 2 speakers = 4 ohm
