My spd s has a bussing soud...I have change the cable and still the same problem


I was using a 25 foot 1/4" to XLR cable from the back of the Roland directly into the Thump. As mentioned, I tried going from the Roland to a direct box with a 1/4 cable on both ends; then out from the direct box "thru"-1/4 fitting, to the XLR connection in the Mackie Thump, with a cable that had the 1/4 on one end and the XLR on the other. Still buzzing. So for grins, I hooked an XLR to XLR cable from the Direct Box Low-Z out, to the Mackie Thump, keeping the 1/4 plug going from the Roland to the Direct box and eliminating the "thru" connection from the direct box to the Thunp, (1/4 to xlr). NO BUZZ.
There is a definite loss of signal strength, ie: everything is coming through quieter, but I can raise the volume of the Thump to FULL, with no buzz, and I can raise the volume of the Roland Module to full, and still no buzz. But there is a definite loss of overall volume, I think because I am not using the direct box properly. Hmmmm. As I understand the Direct box, the IN and THRU are supposed to be used as I was, going from the Roland module to the IN, then from the THRU to the speaker. The Low-Z outs are supposed to carry a signal to a mixer, I suppose to use a FOH PA system, or for recording purposes. Still, I have no buzz. Now...........

In looking over the cords, I suddenly realized that the 25' 1/4" to XLR could be the problem. The 1/4" plug is STEREO! Not mono. Could this be the cause of my buzz? I'm thinking I have a stereo plug, so 2 wires are involved, yet I'm using it in a mono imput in the roland. Perhaps this is creating my ground loop?

After getting a 1/4" MONO to XLR adaptor, attach it to my XLR to XLR cord, go from the back of the Roland (1/4") to the speaker directly (XLR) and see if my buzz is still gone.
The problem now becomes going from the Direct box to the speaker, since it needs to be 1/4 mono from the box, and xlr male to the speaker. I cannot locate a cable like that! So, I guess the next best solution is to get an adaptor to convert one end of the xlr/xlr cable to a 1/4 mono plug. At that point I don't think the cable would still be considered a 'balanced' line though, since it goes from 3 wire at the xlr to 2 wire at the 1/4 ts plug, right? The only other solution is to continue running out of the direct box as I am, using the Low-z out xlr connection, so I can continue to use the xlr/xlr cable.
Also there was a button on the direct box, called a PAD, for -15dB, I assume that what was causing my signal attenuation. When I pushed it in and it released, I suddenly had my volume back.

Hello! We have some problem whith 1 chanel, when 2


BOTH turntables and the same channel on each? If it's really really low and tinny that would probably be a failure to have/use a PHONO preamp (built-in and selectable on the Mixer).

Swap the channels coming in from the mk1200 and see if it stays with the mk1200 or with the left channel of the mixer.

There IS an outside chance you have flaky connections at the cartridge.

You would need a Stereo jack to RCA cable. Input into Aux channel in rear, make sure your switch on faceplate is set to Aux. You may also need to turn up volume on the ipod.

No sound coming from headphones using my dj mixer. however through speakers sounds fine. Im using 2 pioneer cdj 1000 mk3 and a djm 800. The sound works perfectly through speakers. how ever nothing through...


hii there, pls try to use another headphone on your mixer, if you get the same problem. It means your headphone have no problem. Problem is with the the jack of your mixture. Open your mixture and check the jack properly attached internal.

Fader's problem in YAMAHA O2R96


Hi! I've got a Yamaha 01v and to auto test the faders I simply hold the ENTER button while turning on the mixer. I guess It's the same for the 02R. ;)

Hooking up sound system


The RSQ player goes into the input section of the mixer.
The mixer effect send goes to the Quadraverb input and the output of the Quadraverb goes back to the effect in on the mixer. Now the Main out on the mixer goes to the EQ then the EQ goes to the compressor/limitor to power amp to speakers.
