It sounds like the tube may need replacing. Its an ECC81, quite easy to find and replace.

Soundcraft Gigrac 1000st distortion in the mic inputs. The rca line in is fine and clean. No effects on the mic pre sounds like its breaking up at any volume level. really dissapointing.


You should be using Dynamic mics such as a Shure SM58. They go into the first FOUR channels and if there is excessive gain and distortion, push in thee Pad button below the connector for those four channels. Inexpensive consumer microphones used with some Karaoke home systems are not suitable for this unit. You should be using XLR cables on the mics (balanced lines). The Pad buttons reduce the gain by a fixed amount of -20 Db for mics that have too much output to be controlled by the gain controls right above the connector. Ideally those should be no less than 12 o'cloock for good signala to noise ratio. Additional channels beyond the first four do not have as much gain and they do not have the -20 Db pad option.

I get little sound out of the microphone spots onm my DA-X10Pro. I have a karaoke THE SINGING MACHINE. When I use my karaokee machine mic plug in the mic works fine...but any voice into the mic...


The mics on the singing machine are very low end mics and MAY not work on your other unit. The Voco has very sensitvie inputs to use with "professional" type microphones. The Singing machine mics are going to be fairly high output and likely to overload the voco inputs. Procure some professional mics like Shure, AKG, Sennheiser or others and don't forget to use a balanced to unbalanced adapter or cable on the mics.

Im having distortion problems on my microphones, how do I activate the compressor on my mixer?


You can't activate something you don't have. The XENYX do not have compressors built in.

If you are getting mic distortion you are not properly setting up the mics.

You one at a time press the PFL down and have someone yell at the mic the loudest they will ever be. You adjust the trim control for that mic to be below the clip on the LED display. The you turn that PFL off and go to the next mic.

From that point all mic adjustments are from the slider. If you can't get enough gain, then back off ALL the other non-mic inputs and crank up the main slider and/or the power amp gains.

You have to learn to balance all the gains.

There are instruction videos on YouTube under "Soundboard".

Mic output of my pmp3000 is weak,levels must all the way up to get any mic sound louder,Im using balanced xlr's for my mics, Is there any adjustable sensitivity adjustment inside the mixer? like the...


The answer to your question is NO, there is NOT an internal adjustment.

For many mics the trim is used full clockwise. Some higher output mics I use the trims are run at 3 o'clock which is mostly turned up. This is NORMAL for most mixers. If you don't have enough mic gain relative to other inputs, the fault is balancing the other inputs down and using higher setting on your MAIN slider.

If you use 8 ohm speakers then you can expect to get about 200 Watts of audio per side with this amp. You can get about 400 Watts RMS (600 Watts peak) using 4 ohm speakers.

The efficiency of the speakers makes a lot of difference in the sound level output/

You need a directional microphone, and then it needs to be pointed away from the guitar. Another technique would be to provide some acoustic insulation between the mic and the guitar, like a wall or a partition like what is used to set up office cubicles.

I can't tell from the add but hopefully it comes with adapters for both plugs that will work on your mixer. It does have the one for the headphones but the one for the mic is not clear, they are not interchangeable.

You would obviously plug the headphones into the headphone jack. The knob labeled "Phones/Control Room" will control the volume without changing what's being broadcast. What you hear in you phones is exactly what you are broadcasting.

The microphone needs to go into either mono channel 1 or 2. The adapter for it needs to be a mono Tip/Sleeve adapter as the more common stereo Tip/Ring/Sleeve adapter may cause some problems. You can tell the difference by looking at how many sections are on the plug divided by a little black line. Two sections is mono, three is stereo.

Adjust you microphone level by setting the volume knob, the one on the very bottom, to the 12 o'clock position. Then turn the gain knob, the smaller plastic one on the very top, until the desired volume is reached. If you experience any clipping or distortion turn the gain knob down until it goes away. These are general settings, you may want to experiment until you get the best level without noise.
