    I am just starting to use a new Behringer X1222USB interface/mixer.  Here is myquestion: What is the best way to hookup active floor monitors?  Is it possible to use two (2) active floor monitors having each monitor receiving slightly different channel information?  I think I get that there is one (1) Aux Send but I want to use two monitors.  Let me know if this is possible.  And, do I use a Balanced cable (TRS) or can I use an Unbalancedcable (TR)?  Thank you for any help.

    The options for Natplay source:    USB    is the only option.  What does it mean and why is it the only option?

      PedroRodrigues Hi steverosen13, please consider that you can use the Global NatPlay Source parameter to define a global signal source for the NaturalPlay feature.
      You can use this parameter if you want to make sure that only audio or control data from a specific source is used to determine key/scale.
      The Parameter settings are the following:

      VoiceLive 3 “listens” to any audio or control data coming from the Guitar input/MIDI or USB port/Aux input/RoomSense microphones to determine the key/scale that should guide Harmony voices and HardTune.

      Audio received at the Guitar input is used to determine key/scale.

      MIDI note messages received at the MIDI IN jack are used to determine key/scale.

      Audio received at the Aux input and Input is used to determine key/scale.

      Room Sense:
      Audio received by the built-in RoomSense microphones is used to determine key/scale.

    Having an issue with tc helicon perfomer vg. The harmony  wont stay set on a 5th above. It returns to  5th below everytime I go to use it. I tried to reset it but it keeps going back to 5th below

      PedroRodrigues Hi Rjay17 ,please consider that the Harmony works slightly differently than the other effects, since there are more styles to choose from.

      When you first hold the harmony button to enter edit mode, you’ll be greeted with a level control.

      Unlike the other effects, this is simply a minimum to maximum control and applies regardless of which harmony style you’ve chosen.

      Once in edit mode, tap the harmony button again to toggle between level control and style control.

      Harmony styles are represented relative to the topmost (12 O’Clock) LED, which serves as an indicator of your lead voice.

      Please check the images below.

    I am looking for a power source for the Go XLR.  The power source is listed as an intertek ep 4001528.  Does anyone know where I can find one?

    I want to use the FX150 simply as a monitor but not sure how to connect for this purpose.

    I'm currently going out of the VL3X mono output into a Bose L1, headphone jack to FX150 for Backing tracks, guitar out to Bose L1.

      PedroRodrigues Hi JOHNRYAN,in your case the best option will be to use a Mixing desk that will manage the Monitor signal and will send that signal to the Monitor Input on your VL3X via Aux Send so you can have that same signal being outputted via Monitor Thru to feed it to any monitor you would like.

    Hi, I am having some hissing noises from my Voice Solo after a stray glass of Whiskey.

    I have given to a local tech guy here in Australia but need some technical documents to be able to proceed in and detail.

    Trying to fill the details in to contact Helicon seems to be a huge effort as I don't have proof of purchase and other details they require before you can even send in a request for help.

    Just need some tech drawings....anyone???

    Hi Guys,

    When I tap on the TAP button to set my echo timing, the noise of my tapping is picked up by the mic (SM58).   

    I've tried tapping *very* softly but the tapping noise is still passed through to the front of house system.

    The mic and the Peform-VG are on the same mic stand.

    Is there a work around that people use, eg a separate stand for the Perform-VG unit?   A better quality mic stand?   Any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    I switched from VLX3 extreme to an acoustic play.  The AUX output used to be on the vocal side of the XLR output.  On this acoustic play I have it set for vocal and guitar and it seems the AUX output is on the guitar side. Anyway to switch that?  I want to keep it Vocal on one channel and guitar on the other. But would like AUX to be on the vocal side

      PedroRodrigues Hi T3aztec please take in to account that you must use the Output parameter to set how signals are sent over the XLR outputs of Play Acoustic.

      The unit offers several parameters that you can set up on the output stage such as:

      1)-The Vocal/Guitar (DI) setting, with this setting, vocal and Aux signals are sent over one XLR connector, and guitar signals over the other XLR.

      2)- With the Stereo setting, a stereo mix of Vocal, Guitar and Aux signals is sent over both XLR outputs

      3)-With the Mono Setting all effected vocal and guitar sounds are sent via the left XLR output.
      Dry vocals, with Tone and pitch correction, if you have set the Pitch Cor Amt parameter on the Input page to a value other than zero, are sent via the right XLR output.

      The unit also offers on the outputs stage tools such as the Vocal cancelation function and the Lead Mute parameter.
      The first tool that attempts to remove the vocals from a piece of music while the second tool mutes the lead vocal and only output the processed signals.

      1)- With the Off setting/ On setting
      When it’s on “Off set mode” no processing is performed on the Aux input signal.
      When it’s on “On setting mode”, Play Acoustic will attempt to remove lead vocals from a piece of music.
      This will create “Karaoke” style music for you to sing along to, including key information for harmony generation.

      2)- With the Off setting/ On setting
      When the Lead Mute parameter has the “Off setting” activated Lead Vocals are routed to the main mix.
      When the Lead Mute parameter has the “On setting” activated Lead vocals are removed from the main mix.

      I hope this clarifies the options you have available to configure your unit and how you must set it up to reflect your creative intentions.
      For a more in-depth information on how to set up your unit please follow the link below to access the full guide and all the resources available for your PLAY ACOUSTIC.
