You are running your balanced cable into a windows 7 PC? What interface are you using... not the line input on the PC I hope as it is NOT balanced... it is Stereo input with UNBALANCED input. If you tie the mixer using a balanced to 1/8 inch balanced connector you will get plenty of hiss since you are driving the stereo channels oppositely. For high quality, get a good audio interface that runs on the USB of the PC. If you can tolerate a bit of noise but wire it correctly, then you will need to use two UNBALANCED lines out of the mixer for L and R and merge them to a stereo 1/8 inch plug for the PC.

How can I reduce white noise / hissing I'm getting over the mic on a Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB setup?


Hi, you didn't say if the mic actually passes sound? The C-1 is a condenser Mic & needs phantom power - switch on the rear of your mixer. If that's no help, what happens if you disconnect the mic, then turn the levels back up? Still hissing or gone? If it's gone then it's the Mic - must use a 3 wire cable, preferably XLR so it gets the phantom power. If the hiss is still there without the Mic then sounds like the mixer is faulty - try some of the other channels..... How loau is the hiss - just in the background or as load as a vocal "one, two" test? A few things to check anyway...... Good Luck!

How dso I connect a seperate mixer to a Behringer B215D powered speaker


Use the two balanced outputs, intot he inputs on the back of the speaker, 1/4 inch jack should fit.
Alternativly you can do the same via xlr, for a balanced connection.

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.

How to set onboard fx processor


Which clip light on what and what mics are you using?
The small room settings are from 10 so just turn the know to the setting you require and press it, this should set it.

The stadard way of setting up mics is to set the channel gain so the channel clip light just blinks occasionally when you are making the maximum sound you can into the mic.

For effects repeat this process using the aux send FX for each channel you want fx on (turn the rest to 0) and doing a balancing act between these and the aux send fx master so you can only just get the FX clip light blinking occasionally.

Next set your gain/attenuators on the amp(s) so its clip warning can just trigger when you are giving it 0db when you are playing the loudest you ever will.

A mic fading away could be the battery dying (in which case try using phantom power) or if they're radio replace the batteries before each service. If they're wired dynamic mics then it is possible there's some protection circuit somewhere that's reacting to the constant clipping and backing off the amp.

I have a Behringer B1 Microphone and a Behringer 1202 Mixer. I want to know how to connect both of these to my Yamaha Home Theater receiver so that I can sing karaokes from the computer, Please help


You'll need to connect both your PC and the Mic to the mixer, you'll need phantom power switched on at the mixer for the mic to work, you then take the two track out to the Aux input on the receiver.

I am getting minimal to almost no sound coming from my mic to my computer.


If you are using the fx/send port to the mic-in port (I have no idea why you would want to do that) but nevertheless, check the red fx dial and make sure it is at 12 oclock and turn the pan dial to 12 oclock also. remember if you are using mic input 1 or 2 with a mic that requires Phantom power the button needs to be locked in the down position. OK im assuming you have checked and set your gain and volume levels on the 802 prior to plugging in your mic. If not do so now.(unplug all outputs and with mic plugged in speak into the mic while turning up gain until you get distortion which is indicated by a rewd light next to the "pan" button...once you see that light turn the gain dial back slightly and you should be set) have volume at 12 oclock on both l"evel1" and "main mix: dials. Now goto your windows desktop and right click on your volume control "speaker" icon. Click on "Playback device" you should see your mic in the list on enabled devices.If you dont see your mic in list right click the screen and click show disabled devices. Enable your device. If it is already enabled right click it and make sure it is not muted. finally go back to list of playback devices and right click your mic and click "configure speakers" run through the tests. close everything.mic should be working now. If it is not I suggest you plug your mic into either the line in from the fx/send or keep it in the mic-in port and plug the other end into the head phones port.Or better yet, get an rca to mini stereo jack and use the cd/tape out jacks to send your signal to the mic port of your computer......keep playing with it...you'll figure it out.There are so many different ways to hook up your perephrials its mind numbing sometimes.

I cant get sound from fx send to my computer


Open the volume mixer on the pc and make sure the mic port is on. When you find it, click on the "advance" tab and there will be a check box allowing you to add 4db to the volume of the mic. Also, make sure it is plugged into the line in or mic input on pc.

I have a Behringer xenyx 1202 fx. I get static when I turn up the main fx to main control. I've had the unit for a year working fine until now.


Hi,

Sounds very much like the control knob is dirty, needs a good cleaning!

Sometimes just giving the knob a good exercising (turn it up and down quickly a few times) can help it.

Some cleaners can leave behind a residue and make it worse, so ask at an amp repair place what product is best to use.

Hope this helps!

Can I use a footswitch for the reverb, to allow me to switch it off when talking ON MY Behringer Xenyx 1202 FX


Sorry, the Xenyx1202FX does not have a footswitch input. I would suggest if this function is needed to use an external FX unit which has a footswitch input.

Can't get any gain without feedback when using my new shure sm81 mic and the xenyx x1240usb fx mixer. keep the speaker way out in front of me. no montiors. using just a hair of reverb and compression. have...


This is a STUDIO mic and CANNOT be used in the presence of speakers that are driven from its output.

There is special hardware processors to cancel feedback but you do NOT want to go there !!!

This condenser mic is to be used in a studio where performers wear earphones and NO monitors are present.

You should use a Shure SM58 or other CLOSE talking cardoids if you have speakers in the area.
