Go check out these pictures, and there is some good info about micing up your drums. :) Recording it is then a case of getting levels good for a start by worling your way around the kit one drum at a time setting the level for that drum. a bit of nice reverb in the mix and out come you drums.... whoooohhooooo

I have a ep4000 amplifier, how can i connect to a mixer


The rule of thumb is you control your audio on the low side. That means you plug your mics, tuners, audio sources into the pre-amp and then the pre-amp into the equalizer/mixer ant finally the mixer into the power amp and the amp into the "large honkin' speakers". The inter connects on the low side (between the source, the mixer and the power amp are usually done with RCA plugs. Use a good quality set of cables to get good tight connections and solid grounding.
AUDIO SOURCE?MIXER?POWER AMP---
heavy speaker wire sized to your SPEAKERS.

How do I connect my samson amp to my samson MDR10 mixer?


on the mixxer, use the "mix" "L" and "R" outputs. use 1/4 inch instrument cables, and connect the mox L and R to the amp's "channel 1" and "channel 2 inputs". always turn the mixing board on first, and the amp second- when turning off turn off the amp first, and turn off the mixer second. start with the mixer levels at the lowest, with the amp levels about 1/2 to 3/4 up. slowly raise the mixer channels first and then the mixer main volume until you have an adequate volume.

Im a candidate sound engineer, im strugling to set the bass drum from the mixer. how do i set it?


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

I have a Crown Power Base 1 AMP, with a buzz. It


Buzz through speakers usually means it is picking up humm from a power source. Check your mixer and amp input (gain) levels. If one is turned up really high you will get buzz. If that doesn't work check where it is plugged in. Is it sharing power with another electronic piece of equipment? You can also buy a power conditioner (I believe it is called). It will put out "clean" power (power without Hz humm). They can be expensive though. Less exspensive mixers will put out humm. Lower that gain as low as possible and raise the amp gain. Or vice verse

Mixer 1622fxuli


The two plugs are what is called Daisy chained this means they are both the same. This is so you can simply hook the speaker to the amp, then from the other plug hook another speaker, then from that speaker hook another speaker, ect...

Wantind to add mics to my karaoke machine-Vocopro GiGMan karaoke system


I'd get a small mixer, then run mics into that, mix em down to 2 channels then send em to the karaoke machine, that way you have control in mixing multiple mics down to 2 channels, I wouldn't bother with 1/4 " mini plug mics or splitters personally.
A D.I. box ( direct injection ) takes an instrument or line level signal through a step down transformer and it comes out the other end as a mic level signal, the purposes of it are for running an electric instrument into it wich is split into 2, one for going to the input stage of a mic pre, the other can go back out to an instrument amplifier, this way you can run a direct signal into the console via " direct injection " into the mic pre as a mic level signal and also can run it to your instrument amplifier in order to be able to also mic the speaker cabinet acoustically at the same time, there are many benefits to this, for instance in live shows if the speaker cabinet or mic fails then you still have the direct signal, also since the direct signal tends to be punchier and clearer, cleaner, than an acoustically mic'd signal, they can both be mixed together at the console to give a a desired blend of each signal. Since there is a small delay between the direct signal and the acoustically mic'd signal because of distance of the mic from the soundsource delaying the direct signal a bit may be desired. D.I. boxes are only for instruments, they are superflous for vocals, the quality of the D.I. box does matter and active D.I.'s are the way to go, passives are as they are in speaker crossovers, less than desirable quality. There are also many tube D.I. boxes, generally a D.I. box isn't necessary for running an instrument into a consoles mic pre because most consoles take line level inputs as well, and there are other ways for getting a line level signal into a console by bypassing the mic pres anyways, If you have quality mic pres it's good to use them for the initial gain stage though as opposed to boosting instrument level to line level using a crappier preamp, for instance running an electric instrument input through an effects pedal will raise the instrument level to line level but of course an expensive mic pre will do a better job of it than an effects pedal will, since the first gain stage is paramount to quality......................

Add additional mics on the vocopro gigman all in one system


Putting spliiters on the input of a Mic priamp to connect to Mics to one pre is a bad idea. There are lots of techy reasons why, but the short version is "Don't Do it"

So how to solve your problem..


If you have a spare Line input you could buy a cheap external mixer, which will take the microphones and provide an appropriate level signal to your machine.

Something like this ought to do it..

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Behringer-EURORACK-UB1202-Mixer-631236-i1153479.gc

If you have no line inputs, then you can use the output of the mixer into a DI Box to match the levels and use your exisiting Mic ins.

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Behringer-DI20-Ultra-DI-2-Channel-Active-DI-Box-Splitter-182481-i1125215.gc

DO NOT CONNECT THE LINE OUT FROM THE MIXER TO THE MIC INPUTS WITHOUT A DI BOX!
