I assume you have this connected to a professional type PA system (you would damage a consumer stereo system) You should be able to use headphones from a headphone jack... do your testing with that. There are many tweeks of the electronic box and you USUALLY have to CALIBRATE the box for each of the triggers. Sorry, but one does have to spend a bunch of time reading the manual on setup and reading is not as fun as playing... Get familiar with the menus in the box as that is where it all happens...

Can not get it to work. Im pretty tech makes feedback noise constantly, regardless of mode.

A bad ground connection?. Try tightening the nut on the phono plug first. You can pull out that section where the cable hooks into and visually check the solder connections.

Pa800 no sound

I'm not sure, but I believe this has a small sound card inside like in a pc and later model guitar amps. This card runs reverb and things like that and it also may have a small power plug going to it. I have found on many guitar amps that when this plug gets dirty, or possibly just a weak connection, they usually create static noises and then it echoes that noise. I hope this helps you.

How do i hook up a gemini xga2000 to a preamp and head?

What kind of preamp and how are you using the xga, I assume on PA, and you want to use maybe a guitar preamp and amp head directly to it? Your preamp could go straight line in to the xga, the only thing the (whatever kind) of head is for power of onstage monitoring of your guitar. That is optional since the PA should have monitors. I personally use my full rig onstage to hear myself but, I mic it to the PA which always sounds better than direct. If you could be more specific to these models and uses or ideas, I could help you more.

Have the alesis dm6 there is no out put sound. monitor appears to be working. hooked to small amp or headphones. just fuzz. please help. little guys christmas present!!!

Two things:

Check that cables are seated, especially the one at the main module.

Second, look for a setting for "Local Control" in your user's manual; That setting should be "On" to accept the triggers from the pads.

Only the piano sound works on my D-20. If i press a key in any other voice or instrument it just makes a high pitch sound and freezes up. And on the ''B'' bank its all organ sounds.

We can't possibly guess at what brand a D20 might be,,, HOWEVER let's guess that it is some kind of synth.

I would "guess" that you problem might be that the ionternal memory battery has depleted and the settings and sounds are all lost.

First thing would to be replace the battery. Next the settings need to be restored. SOME instruments have a sequence of buttons to hold while powering on to restore factory settings. Others require you to load data from an external source via MIDI or other method.

JCM2000 DSL100 No Sound

Not likely to be a fuse. The bane of electrical amps are the connectors.

Often the speaker and more commonly the input 1/4 inch connectors go bad. Sometimes caused by side loads when cables are yanked or tripped over.

Be careful of running amps IF the speakers are not connected OR have bad connectors or cables. You can arc over the tubes or pop transistors.

Get a cheap Volt-ohmeter from HarborFreight or Radio Shack and test your cables and connectors.

For a tube amp, your should find relatively low resistance at the speaker connector (certainly under 20 ohms). Do this with power off.

Can't get Casio CTK 601 / 611 to function as MIDI Contrller

I'm not at home right now where all my manuals are so I'll try to explain with out. You will have to set it so that the keyboard is the slave device. Try setting it to Omni receive. It has to be able to listen for all midi channels at once. You have to write a sequence on your computer and hook it to your keyboard by using midi out on the computer to midi in on the keyboard in order for you to use the computer as a controller. If you need the keyboard to create the sequences then you have to hook the midi send on the keyboard to the midi in on the computer play/enter your notes into individual tracks in your software then assign channels, voices etc to each track and save the sequence. Then when you hook it up the other way the sequence will play just like an audio recording except the sound w2on't be there. What you have recorded by creating a sequence is a series of midi messages that the keyboard will receive if you have it set properly and hooked up ptroperly which it will translate into sound. This is a minimalist explanation at best. You will have to have a better understanding of not only your keyboard but also your software and midi in general. There are some pretty amazing things you can do with midi. For instance if you have a lighting controller that is midi capable you can i,mbed all the lighting scene changes for your song in order on one track. You can also control your guitar effects pedal to change effects automatically while your playing. Once you get a handle on it you are only limited by your imagination and your budget. Hope this helps in some way.
