The CD is STEREO whereas the MIC is monaural.

One could make an adapter that merges the left and right channels before sending on the balanced XLR input. This involves using an audio transformer or direct input box for the balanced line and is not DIY unless you are elctronically skilled.

The best way to do this is to instead plug the output of the CD into the TAPE inputs that are usually available on the mixer.

One uses usually a 3.5mm stereo splitter cable with RCA plugs for most of them.

I am in a ukulele ensemble of 8. We all have electric pick ups in our ukes. what is the best way to connect to one amplifier, eg; using a mixer ?


It can plug into a guitar amp or PA system both. If you use an amp, you could hear yourself alone through that, then output jack "power amp out" to PA or put a mic in front of it from the PA. If you don't use an amp, it can plug into the PA but, you would only hear the 8 pieces together and have no way to hear yourself seperately.

NOT RECEVING OR TRANSMITING


Can you see the s-mete if it has one moving up and down on any channel? Do you hear any audio at all? could be a couple of things. Bad mic switch or mic cable, bad antenna or coax, bad audio amp. To check the audio amp plug in a speaker to the PA jack, put the PA switch on PA then press the mic to talk. If it works the audio is fine the mic is good and the mic cable is good. Noiw plug the speaker into the speaker jack, do you hear anything? If not then your antenna or coax has a problem, fix or replace antenna or coax.

How can I connect a microphone to yamaha rx v692


If your trying to have a PA sytem with these unit, you need to have a

separate mic mixer.


But if your trying to setup a Videoke Sing-along System , just connect

the Mic to the player Mic Input.


But if you need and feel to DIY, there is another option

and only if you can.

With the wireless mike and the 1/4-inch mike jack and the line-in from a CD-player, how can the volumes be separately adjusted?


Adjust the CD level at the CD player itself. Truly independent adjustment is probably not possible on this small system.

Hello My name si Christopher and I have a Sennheiser E815S microphone and was wanting to know how can I get it to work on my PC?


Christopher, your microphone is a dynamic type with XLR connector. This means that you can connect this microphone at your pc (at the mic in connector, the red one) using a cable with XLR female connector at one end and 3.5mm jack male connector at the other end (like this). Keep in mind that the 3.5mm male connector has to be a mono type, a stereo one will not work. In case you have the connectors and a suitable cable you can connect as follows:
technical114_16.jpg
YOU MUST CONNECT BOTH 1 & 3 pins from XLR side at the ground point of the jack.

The whole setup won;t give the best sound quality, but it's the simplest and cheapest way to use your mic and the pc. In case you need better quality, clarify me what you are trying to do order to give you some suggestions.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have purchased a beheringer 1832fx usb mixer and I have connected my computer to my mixer that has a usb interface on the back in order to play my backing tracks, music, via my computer, and when I turn...


The main mix controls ALL outputs simultaneously.

The mic channels are controlled individually by the sliders.

It sounds like you are on the verge of feedback where the mics are picking up the PA speakers.

Make sure you have loaded the support SW and make sure you have disabled ECHO as the mics may be looping back through the computer causing the rattle.

Microphone too quiet


That's probably not going to work.
Mic level is extremely low compared with line level.
Your sound card is expecting a line level input.
It's simply not made to plug a microphone into (you must be using an adapter or two just to make the connection)
Look for a USB Audio Interface with XLR or 1/4" microphone inputs - these interfaces are pretty generic these days and easy to use ... just plug into your computer via USB and then plug the mic into the interface ... which has a volume control on it ...
I use a Tapco Link.USB ... and like it

This is probably interference in the wireless connection for the lavalier mic.
Try switching channels to find a clear one!
Or switch to a wired lav mic if that's practical.

How do I use 2 mics for the XL2 simultaneously?


Hi, on the left side of the camera you can set 'audio monitor'. Default is channel 1/2. You can choose to listen to 3/4 or 1/2 and 3/4 simultaneous.
In the menu of the cam you can set between 12 bit audio recording or 16 bit. 16 bit only records on channel 1/2 (the front mic). In 12 bit mode you can record audio on 4 channels.
hope this answers a bit of your question
