Mixer uses balanced outputs, this unit does not... Also ground loops can be a problem. Make sure this and the mixer are BOTH powered from the same receptacle. The next problem is that the level of the mixer is MUCH too high for an amp designed to recieve guitar signals if you are sending a mixer into this. It is NOT clear how you are connecting this to a mixer... IF you happen to be trying to send signals from this to a mixer, either use a mic OR use a Direct Input box. You should tell us exactly how you are connecting this to the mixer since there are MANY ways, and most do not make sense.

Power mixer to a power amp.


You have two aux sends on that mixer so quite easy to use one of those to feed the external power amp. You could have one set of spkrs connected to that amp and another connected to the powered mixer. This would give you full independent control over each set.

The amp does not work at all even though the lights on the amp come on but when i connect it to the guitar no sound whatsoevva i checked the sound nobs on the guitar and the amp n all r ok but no soun


Have you checked a different cable?. Also, when you plug in the unit, there should be a "pop" if everything is turned on. If there isn't, the connection is bad someplace.

How can i get more volume on my onstage monitors thru my mackie 2404 vlz3 mixer or what is the proper way to connect the monitors


Without more information of your speakers and amps we can't really help you. The Mackie board puts out line-level signals and that should drive any connected amp or powered speaker to the full capability. Make sure you are using BALANCED interconnect lines either XLR or TRS cables. Use of TS unbalanced cables costs you 6 DB and also noise pickup. Make sure ALL your gear, amps, speakers etc are powered from a SINGLE receptacle or power conditioning module. Normally you will use the AUX outputs of the mixer by way of TRS cables or balanced lines in a snake to power amplifiers onstage which then connect to the stage monitors. If you have powered monitors the returns of the aux to the stage go to the powered monitors. A heavy duty extension cord brings power back from thee stage power to the mixer.

Behringer ub802 mixer is buzzing even when no input when i hook my head phones into the headphone jack and main output jack


If it buzzes when you have no inputs AND no output leads connected, there is a problem with the power supply... HOWEVER if you have used UNBALANCED output cables instead of the REQUIRED TRS BALANCED output cables, it is possible the noise is being driven backwards and that is what you are hearing. Note that at full gains, there often is a tiny bit of noise, usually hiss. Also make sure the supply is powered from the SAME receptacle as the equipment this drives such as an amp or powered speakers.

Mixer does not sound "clean"; almost distorted


If more than one input is bad, then problem has NOTHING to do with the preamps. Check list:
1. Make sure you are using BALANCED lines everywhere... either XLR or TRS cables.

2. Make sure ALL interconnected equipment, mixers, amps, powered speakers, CD players, etc. are ALL powered from the SAME receptacle or power distribution unit.

3. Do proper setup. Select each channel PFL and set the trims so the indicator never goes into clipping, but is in the 70% range during max volume input to mics, etc..

4. During operation the sliders should be at least 50% up on used channels and the mains. Setting of levels throughout the system is important for noise free operation. Using EXCESS gain at some point results in distortion and noise. Using sliders near the bottom position results in poor signal to noise ratio.

Now re-read #2 above... and believe it. I have seen a lot of equipment blown due to ground bounce of building power. That is why the pro's run power back to their mixer from the area where the amps are powered.

Humming noise since adding a vocopro DA-1050pro mixer to our system.Have connected a ground loop isolator but it makes no difference.The mixer is the only change in the system


Make sure ALL interconnected equipment is powered from the same receptacle or source such as power conditioner. This isncludes mixers, amps, CD pllayers, etc.
Second make sure ALL interconnecting cables are BALANCED lines using XLR or TRS cables.
Isolators other than DI boxes are a no-no.

Check for a dry/cracked solder joint where the 1/4 inch phono input jack connects to the printed circuit board. Solid state Marshalls are renowned for this.
