Question about Audio Players & Recorders

3 Answers

One channel is blocking or taking precedence over the other and stereo music is being broadcast in mono but the sound balance or mix is lopsided so that elements fron one channel are not represented properly and sound either distant(as if from the bottom of a well) or practically non existent,or as good as,especially music recorded at a time when there was big stereo separation,what could be causing this and how can it be rectified?

    i was talking about radio rather than tv.our local radio is experiencing the problem i previously outlined,it could be a problem with our equipment or the analogue tv switch off or a new mobile phone mast is interfering with the radio station's signal

  • gmac61 Apr 09, 2011

    i am talking about the set up in the radio station's studio.you sem to be suggesting it is a simple coonection fault in the wiring .is this certainly the problem or is it possible that something external at the transmitter is causing this.This fault can be heard on every receiver and also on the web stream(as far as i can make out).i noticed this fault first last year when tv signals broadcast fron the same transmitter mast were changed to digital.it was also suggested a new cell phone mast may have caused the fault.

It could be internal problems, but it could also be the balance controller, or it could be the speakers or wires.
The easiest way to rule out the wires and speakers, would be to switch them at the receiver.
If the other channel then has the problem, it is either the wires or the speakers.
They you can try switching just speakers and not wires, to narrow it down.

    If it is the balance controller or internal, you will have to send it in for repair.

    Now that I can see the rest of your comments, I can see you are referring to a problem at the broadcast location, and not just a problem with a single receiver as the first posts suggests.
    Sorry, but I can't help with that because the equipment is much more complex and variable. And we don't even know what kind of equipment is being used.
    But don't all licensed stations require an on site engineer in order to get approval?

Can you describe what your audio set up is? What you're describing could be caused by a loose cable or a faulty jack anywhere on your set up. A loose wire that carries the signal from a particular audio channel could cause that channel to sound muffled or disappear. Another possibility is that your speakers may not be functioning properly. Without a better description of your audio setup it's going to be hard to say exactly what's going on.

    Unfortunately, this is not my area of expertise. When I initially answered, I thought you were describing a home audio system. A radio studio system is not a setup I'm familiar. Sorry for not being able to provide more help.

This could be bad reception or weak signal from the channel. Try to run the channel search or auto program on the channels to be sure. The channel might be showing up twice on a different assignment, ex you having difficulties with channel 2 when pressing channel 2 you get this problem but the actual channel 2 is also on channel 9. See if fine tuning is an option on your tv.

If channel search or auto programming of the channel did not work you may try the following:

If this is from an areal antenna, you may need to inspect the cable or have it repositioned.

It may be a problem withe the cable to the antenna or the cable provider. If you can have it tested on another TV, to test if its a signal issue or problem with the TV.

If another TV runs ok it may be the a problem with the TV's board.

Stereo channels of Xenyx 1202 are very very quiet


It sounds as if the input is too low. what happens if you plug whatever is going into the stereo channels into a pair of mono channels. Or are you taking about the phono stereo tape input?
The stereo channels are line level whereas the other channels have both line and mic level inputs, what are you trying to put through the stereo channels? You must make sure the gain switch is set to the -10dB to get the most sensitivity (the mono channels have about -132dB max sensitivity BTW) You probably need a different mixer or possibly a submixer if you are needing more than 4 low level inputs.

Hi i have connected the Samson G-track with my macbook. also i using Nicecast & Traktor for radio broadcasting. when i talk from Samson G Track my voice comes only from left speaker. I try the...


This is because the G Track's Mic signal is on the Left channel and the Instrument signal is on the Right channel. You are making a stereo recording when you should be making 2 mono recordings. Does Nicecast have an option to set the track to mono Left channel? Traktor should, but I haven't used it so I can't tell you where the option is. There's probably a Track Input drop-down or something like that.

Can't change from MONO to AUTO mode


Hello
Can't make sound from mono to auto is your problem I thinks and posts this solution.
Hit the "Menu" button and surf through, come to "Sound Adjust" window.
The settings allow you to change and adjust sound in your TV. There are Bass, Treble and Balance control to adjust to your individual taste.
To adjust them
1. Press Menu button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select the desired item.
3. Press => or 4. Press EXIT button when finished.
When adjusting the parameter of "Balance" control, always set it to mid position to get stereo sound from both speakers. If it is set to any extreme end, there will be no output from the speaker of that side, and will hear as mono.
If you press "0" [Zero] button, you can reset the sound settings to it Factory settings.
To select 'Streo mode;
1. Press "Menu" button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select MTS [Multi-channel Telivision Sound].
3. Press => or [The ON AIR arrowtells you if a broadcast is in stereo AND/OR contains the SAP.
Press "Exit" button when finished.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo

mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.

Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.

Some DVD's sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it?


" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it? "
Hi,
I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago.
I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is.
Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog.
NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution.
1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS).
2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars.
3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input.
4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV.
5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input.
That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

How do I get my rca truflat tv to get out of mono?


Hello
Press the MTS on the remote control handset to select STEREO, MONO or SAP. All the options will be available only when the current TV channel is broadcasting that option. Channels will not always carry programes, that have all MTS options. If "STEREO" appears on the screen when you select a channel means stereo sound is available with current programme. You can hear sound from both speakers. If broadcast is not strong and clear, stereo sound will not be available. Press "MTS" button to change it to "Mono". This will eliminate the noise. If "MONO" appears on the screen when you select a channel, stereo effect will not be availabe, even though you have set it to stereo. If "SAP" appears when you select a channel 'Second Audio Programe' [SAP] broadcasting is available for that programme. Press the "MTS" button to 'SAP' and you can hear that programe in different language or some other kind of audio.

No sound on some channels, other channels fine


Your SAP/MTS function is most likely turned on. This feature has 3 modes: Stereo, Mono and SAP. Stereo and Mono are easy to understand, it's the SAP that can get you. SAP stands for Second Audio Production. It is used to provide weather, information or an additional language translation of a program. Some broadcasters simply transmit the mono audio over the SAP audio channel when the are not using it for other purposes. Other broadcasters simply do not use it, which does not give you any audio. Look on your remote for a SAP or MTS button. If you do not see one, look in your TV user menu for this feature. If you are using a cable box, look in the audio menu of the cable box. You are looking for something set to SAP... just change it to STEREO. I hope this was helpful.

Computer->M-Audio-FastTrackPro USB->trs outputs 1/2->linein 11-12 of mackie 1202-vlz3. How can i get stereo sound out of the mackie?


Use TRS to TRS balanced cables from the M Audio to the line in 11 and 12.

Set the pan controls for the 11 and 12 to opposite directions to split the stereo to left and right main outputs. (otherwise both main outs mix the left and right and you get mono result.

Check you assign buttons and bottom (three black square buttons) and play with them. It sounds as if you are not sending to that side. You should use mono cables into left and right. I set pan on left all the way left and right, all the way right. Hope this helps.
