Hi triaxisman55

As your Mackies are active, and I presume you are setting up a control room using them as near feild monitors. I would have the digital EQ as the last thing before the monitors, and the realtime analyser before the EQ to eye your audio, and perhaps mic into the realtime to tune the room to some pink noise. If you are happy with the room, then the digital EQ could be used for signal anything that needs some tweaking.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Have a problem with the xp510i - left channel has no output to speaker. Tested with other speaker and cable - appears to be the mixer.


"Tested with other speaker and cable" ... you did not tell us the results of the test. If swapping the speakers and cablles still had the same dead side, it is probably the power amp for that side and not the mixer part. Take in for repair. If you had an accident of speaker cable not being plugged in fully or pulled out while operating, this pops the power amp real quick. They also just plain fail at times. Plug a set of headphones into the MONO out jack. If you can hear audio going through the unit then the mixer is OK... and the power amp on the failing side has a failure. Note the headphones will be low level and probably only one side, usually the left as this is a mono signal and headphones are normally stereo.

I'm using an old DBX 2031 thats probably hasn't seen the light of day in about 2 years. When I chain this thing on my vocals, the SNR just goes through the roof. Pushing faders in any direction will...


Putting an EQ in the chain after a vocal mic can add quite a bit of noise to the signal as the EQ is actually another gain stage prior to the mixer's input. I would recommend the cleanest signal possible from the mic to the console. Add eq after the fact, whether outboard like your DBX, or in the digital realm in your DAW. Keep the signal straight and clean as possible from the mic.

What settings should i have my 760 watt pioneer amp set at for amp gain and bass boost in order to have the best sounding hit from the subs?


they want you to "level match" the amps head units voltage from the rcas .this is best done with the radio at 3/4 volume , turning the amps gain dial till music distorts then backing off till it sound s clear .if theres other units in the signal chain (eq,x overs, ) see if they too have gain /volume controls . it goes down the line if thats the case . .

Problems with a motu 828 audio interface


I have the same model. Mine is has never had any problems other than latency issues. BUT just now I have blinking led lights and it has no sound and does not even get recognition from my computer now. I dumbfounded cause its been in the same spot with never being dropped or bumped so I'm gonna take off the face and air clean it. Crackling I did have and as soon as I or sprayed air on the "open" pots it went away. This first generation in my belief should have some sort of recall or refund at a trade up value. I'm now a recording studio with no anolog to digital converters cause my FIRST GENERATION motu 828 is all fritzed out man. It's pain full. I swear when I go to their site they recognize your system and blast at your computer to make sure its all legal which in turn destroys your software and epuipment. Every time I've been to their site. I've had to reinstall all my softwar which I bought from them, re input my serial #'s and last site i went to was the Digi page and blam. anyway, I suggest to just open it up, spray the insides to clean it and pray. lol...

Technics SH GE70 : 1 bar doesn't do much


I would want to know if it's just an indiction problem or an actual notch.

Let's prove the signal is pure going to the EQ.

Tune between FM stations with no automatic muting on your receiver so you can hear a loud hiss. Monitor the EQ display. There should be a lot of energy across the bands. If you see the notch swap the inputs to the EQ to prove it's in the EQ. Otherwise the signal is being affected upstream.

Let's prove there's no audible notch in the bandwidth. This is the fun part.

Set your system to just play Stereo with the FM hiss and if there is a Stereo Direct setting that bypasses internal circuitry, engage it. Adjust the EQ for equal level and flat response on both channels.

Disconnect the two front speakers. Wire just one front speaker across just the Positive leads of the Left and Right amplifiers. This is not dangerous. (**)

** Back in the day we used this kind of wiring (with some proper resistance and circuitry to prevent interaction between the front channel speakers) to extract ambience (difference) information from plain stereo to drive a speaker at the rear of the room. Adjustment was done by selecting MONO and turning the Balance control for Minimum output, then going back to Stereo for listening. Ah, the old days.

What this does is make the speaker play only what is DIFFERENT between the channels. If the source is truly MONO as it should be there will be a minimal output presented to the speaker. In an ideal world a true mono signal fed to both channels in this manner would result in total silence. There will always be some difference in the real world.

You can prove the accuracy and fullness of the EQ signal by adjusting one channel of the EQ to be different and as you do the sound should start to rise as the Delta increases. Returning the controls to flat and equal should provide minimal output. If there is a solid audible difference in the treble range the EQ might actually be showing the 6.3khz deficiency accurately. To see if it's at 6.3khz adjust the LEFT channel downward to match the display of the RIGHT and the difference program material should become very low as heard from the speaker. That would indicate a true deficiency in the LEFT channel.

Fixing it might not be possible but you might be able to use the EQ to offset it.

ABS and BRAKE light at the same time


push the pedal and see if it goes to the floor slowly or fast, if so,some thing like this i would lay on the ground in the back and have some one push the pedlal and hold it, look for fluid, like wet spot near the wheels first ( i have seen wheel cylinder go bad but not leak alot at one time so keep that in mind too) and make your way to the front on the driver side inside of the fram.i dont think its the master cylinder but see if you can see a wet spot at the bottom of the master and the booster( i seen masters not leak as will )

leaks will make the ABS lite come on

Having a hard time connecting various audio components


Yes, it is a little tricky...

1) CD Changer (output) -> CD input on Amp

this is tricky... this will allow you to record to your tape deck, and control the sound via the EQ:
2) Tape Deck (tape out / recout) -> TAPE PLAYBACK on EQ
3) Tape RecOut on EQ -> Tape 1 Playback on Amp
4) Amp Tape 1 RecOut -> Tape Deck Playback / Input / RecIn
in essence, your creating a loop starting from the tape deck, going to the eq, then to the amp, then back to the tape deck to record.

Your EQ has another set of LINE IN and LINE OUT - use the second Tape 2 on the amp to create another loop. This will
allow you to control the EQ for any of the other sources.
5) LINE IN on EQ -> Tape 2 RecOut
6) Tape 2 Playback on Amp -> LINE OUT on EQ

5) Radio Tuner (output) -> Tuner input on Amp
6) DVD/VCR Combo Output -> AV/AUX on Amp

7) PC Computer... you don't have room for this. You can either use the PHONO input, and you'll have to purchase a Line Level Phono Converter
or, get a Y cable and split the signal and share with some other source.

Hope this helps.

Imac-samson-gtrack mic compatability


From the Samson Audio website...

"Ideal for the traveling musician or the project studio, the G-Track ships with a desktop mic stand, swivel stand mount, USB cable and all the cables needed to connect any musical instrument with a standard 1/4" or RCA output. The G-Track ships with Cakewalk's Sonar LE and works brilliantly with Apple's GarageBand."

If it states that it works with GarageBand, I would say that it would work on a mac.
