It sounds like the cables you are using, or the way you have it wired into the system are not correct. If you are using the stereo channels on the mixer, then the system also needs to be wired in stereo to the proper amp and speakers. Otherwise you hear the left or right side of the stereo mix, and not all of the music correctly.
Another problem may be the kind of cables you are using to wire the MP3 player to the mixer with. If you are using a 1/8" adapter to the MP3 player, make sure it is a STEREO 1/8" adapter, and that both left and right channels are plugged into the mixer, preferably on the first two inputs to test and see that both channels are indeed coming through. Then you may move them to a stereo channel. Again, make sure that the system is wire in stereo in order to hear both sides, Good Luck

Yamaha psr 1000


Hi
I'm not sure I completely understand your problem but......it sounds like you might be in "Fingered On Bass" mode. This means if you play a chord like F using the notes FAC- if you play them in 2nd inversion (so the order is CFA) the psr-1000 will make the note "C" the bass note. In this mode if you played ACF then "A" would be in the bass part. Change to "Fingered Chord"-this will enable you to play any chord with the tonic (the name of the chord) F whether you play FAC, ACF or CFA in the bass part. I don't have access to a psr-1000 but often with Yamaha instruments this can be changed by pressing and holding the "Auto Accompaniment" button. I hope this helps.

Why do i have echo when i play music on my phonic powerpod 820 mixer


Visit this link to download the manual if you don't have it already. https://phonic.box.net/shared/crqxhlhmmz
This mixer has a multi-effects processor onboard, but the key is understanding the audio signal chain. There is a chance that you have your input audio going through an undesired effect, but without knowing your setup (input source, connections, mixer settings), it would be difficult to pinpoint the problem.

I have the Phonic powerpod 820. I ordered a Kuston powered floor monitor to add too the system. I know not to hook it up too the speaker outputs on the back of the mixer. So where do I hook up the powered...


You will plug an UNBALANCED 1/4 inplug cable into the MONI jack on the front of the unit. The other end will probably need to be an XLR plug to connect to the Kustom POWERED monitor. Please note that the UNBALANCED output of the Phonic is NOT good engineering practice. The Phonic stuff is normally low-end and they don't do everything correctely, although for a small system it should work. IF you get excessive hum from using a long cable to the Kustom with a "Kludged" unbalanced to balanced cable, you MAY need to use a DI box at the Phonic end to convert the unbalanced Phonic MONI output to a balanced line (XLR to XLR) for a longer run to the Kustom monitor. You might get a 1/4 inch TS to XLR balanced plug that has a transformer in it and use an XLR to XLR cable to the Kustom. Please note that having this plug in the Phonic hangs out and is easily bent over so I would recommend using a right angle connector at the Phonic and plug the 1/4 inch TS to XLR adaoter into that so the yanking of the XLR cable won't break the 1/4 inch adapter off in the Phonic.

When I play my Bass Clarinet, the bottom joint won't play the higher octave. It will play everything except the 3rd octave B-E. I can't find any leaks.


usually If a certain note doesnot play the note before it is not seating correctly. Check all pads that they are sealing behind the bad notes, also make sure the octive key is sealing.

What is the ideal speaker specification to match the 8 channel Phonic Powerpod 820. is it possible to play live gig using this set up ? what is the maximum possible set-up ?


to get the best from this mixer output wise, you need to use 4ohm speakers rated at 150watts each. The 200 wat rating is at 4ohms. You can use 8 ohm speakers, but they recomend speakers at 70watts.

Gig wise, you could do a small location that will cater for about 40 people, but that would be pushing your system to the max.

Maximum possible set up? well there is a way to work most scenarios you are given, but it is not best practice.

Ideally, you know what instruments and vocals you want to go through the system, a rough idea of the size of venues you wil play and then ask questions on a system to suit.

It may be your old computer was running XP operating system and your new one Win7... There is a lot of incompatibility with different operating systems. You can try searching for a compatibile driver. If you cannot find one, the best thing might be to back-step to your old compatible OS and driver.

Before changing the speaker, check for debris or other things in the cabinet or grill that MIGHT be rattling..

Also, plug in an external speaker to the ext jack and see if it is clean.

Phonic Helix Board sound problems


You don't specify which model Phonic mixer in question.
Is it a powered mixer ? And are you plugging your speakers into the speaker outputs ? If it's not a powered mixer and you're plugging speakers into the Line Outputs, you're not using a power amplifier between the line outputs and your speakers - this won't work.
If it is a powered mixer and you are plugging speakers into the speaker output connectors and still getting little or no sound, check your speaker cables and the speakers themselves by plugging them into known good amps.
