    I have some questions about my mixer output and would like some guidance. I will try to break it down on what I have, How It is used and how it is connected.  I would like to have someone tell me if this is correct and how to do it correctly.

    What I have: 

    2- microphones for Basketball Court Announcers. XLR Balanced.

    Laptop computer audio 5- foot Mini-plug output to 1/4 inch mono plugs.

    Behringer QX1002USB mixer. 

     

    How it is used:

    Basketball game cout side announcing. We have 2 mics for the announcers and I play music from a laptop. Very simple set-up. The area supplys the connection of a Single XLR cable. (i don't know how it hooks to the AMPS or arena speakers.) I do know if I connect a microphone (SM58) to the area supplied XLR jack it will work.  We needed music for the games so I wanted to add the mixer so i could get music from laptop. I connected the microphone into mixer.  

    My Big question:

    What kind of cable to I use to get out of the MAIN output of the mixer to this XLR connection.??

    What kind of cable / adapter do i use from computer to mixer. am I using the correct cable now?

      Hi Brett ( @digitalfade ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  The 1002 is a great mixer for this kind of setup.  Plug your two announcer mics into the XLR connectors for Channel 1 and 2.   Connect your laptop line out to the mixer Line In 3/4 using a 3.5mm stereo TRS to 1/4" TS plugs.  Something like this: https://hosatech.com/products/analog-audio/stereo-breakouts/hosa-breakouts/cmp-150/


      Keep this cable as short as reasonably possible since it's an unbalanced connection. 


       


      Rotate the "Pan" knobs on Channels 1-4 fully to the "L" so everything is coming out the left side. 


       


      Connect Main Out L to the venue XLR connection using a 1/4" TRS-to-XLR cable such as this: https://hosatech.com/products/analog-audio/interconnect-cables/hosa-pro-single-interconnects/hsx-000/


      This cable can be as long as needed or longer since it's a balanced connection. 


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

      In addition to Ken's ( @KenMitchell  ) advice, your comment "I do know if I connect a microphone (SM58) to the area supplied XLR jack it will work."  suggests that the house system is set to take a mic-level input. If so, you may need to attenuate the output from the mixer to a suitable level. An XLR attenuator like this should do the job.

      Thanks @RexBeckett - Good catch.  I'd missed that in the original post.

      Thanks Guys. That is what I thought i shoudl do...but my brain is asking another question.  If I PAN to the Left will my computer audio lose the right channel?? Maybe the PAN on this mixer is controling the output side.?


       


      Thanks again for the great replys.

      @digitalfade 


      You are correct - if you are only using one side of the stereo output you would lose one side of your stereo input.


       


      The easy fix is to plug one side of your music source into LINE IN 3/4 Mono and the other side into LINE IN 7/8 Mono. This will convert the stero input to mono so you don't lose anything. Set the Level controls of channels 3/4 and 7/8 the same and set their pan controls to centre.

    Tannoy is the brand name that can be found on many prestigious sound installations throughout the world. Examples include the Hong Kong Convention Centre, the Sydney Opera House, the London Palladium theatre, Coca Cola Headquarters in Atlanta and the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas to name but just a few.

    Will an x32 compact retain all its setup as in fader positions, scenes etc when depowered/repowered. The scenario is in a church where very few have technical knowledge and powering up and down I need settings to remain.

      KyleJohnson Hi Matt, Kyle here with Music Tribe. In general, yes. The X32 saves it's current state every 2 minutes, and it will always boot in the same state that it was last shut down in. The only exception would be the Main LR Fader which by default will drop to the bottom when booted, but you can change this setting so that the Main LR Fader returns to it's last used point when powered up.

        mattprice500 Kyle. Thanks very much for this info. Just what I wanted to hear. Where do I find the setting for the Main LR fader ?
        • November 12, 2020
      • X 32 Compact keeping settings
        KyleJohnson It's in the Setup>Config menu, the option you are looking for is called "Safe Main Levels". If it's checked, the mains will drop down at power on.

    Salve ho appena acquistato un mixer x air 18, ma usando sempre mixer analogici ammetto che questo mi porta qualche difficoltà, ma non conoscendo l'inglese non capisco nulla nelle istruzioni, qualcuno potrebbe passarmi istruzioni in italiano sia primo accesso che quelle generali? Vi ringarazio per l'attenzione in ogni caso a presto

    One of the clubs I work for uses a xenyx 1002fx to mix sound and send it to a dcx2496. It goes over a pretty long distance, right along the power wires... I know the xenyx output is unbalanced and the sound quality is obviously reduced. They just used some TS to XLR adapters to make everything connect and they thought it would work. I am thinking of using a passive di box to balance the signal, would that make sense? Or could someone recommend an alternative, preferably from behringer as well?

      RexBeckett Hi padand, it does make sense to balance the signal but a normal DI box would reduce the level too much. A better solution is to use transformers that are designed to operate at line-level. One example is the Behringer HD400.

      See: https://www.behringer.com/product.html?modelCode=P0387

    Hello.  Got a Behringer X-DANTE 32-Channel AD Expansion Card for the X32 Producer and in addition to this, got the Dante Controller configured with X32 Producer.  Transmitters and receivers are seen in Dante Controller and everything has a valid subscription.  I've got a simple test rig here with a mic and speakers.  Sound is clear and crisp.  The problem is that none of our faders work anymore - main and individual faders don't work. 

    Can't adjust volume or mute.  It's all or nothing.  (Nothing, meaning I have to use the hardware switch on the handheld mic itself to mute it.) I do get the green meters on the X32 above the fader so it looks like theres a connection somewhere.

    Main and all the mic faders work again if I revert the hardware back to the stock USB card.  Maybe I misread the directions but it said under Routing menu to route to the Card (the Dante Card right?)

    Looking at this article
    https://community.musictribe.com/pages/kba?articleId=13d79f26-25ee-ea11-a815-000d3ac693d8&brand=Behringer

    Is it as simple as this?   Thanks.

      Nigel67 Hi MCCAZ. In the Card Tab, are you routing the Local 1-8, 9-16, 17-24 and 25-32. If so, then this is taking the audio straight off the pre-amps and sending it to the card. This is why EQ, Mutes, Faders are not working in the feed to the Dante. The faders, Mutes, etc should still be working though if you assign the inputs to the Main Mix. If you want to send post fader signal from each input to the Dante, then in the Out 1-16 tab, you will assign the first 16 Direct Outs to the 16 Outs (and adjust the tap points as you require). For the inputs 17-32, you then go into the Ultranet tab and assign Direct Outs 17-32 to Out 1-16 again with the tap point you require. Once done, go to the Card tab and assign OUT 1-8, 9-16 to Outputs 1-8, 9-16, and then assign Ultranet 1-8 to Outputs 17-24 and Ultranet 9-16 to Outputs 25-32. Hope this answers your question.

      @Nigel67 Thanks! Followed your steps and got mostly everything routed. So this worked perfectly. Mutes and faders for individual mics are working as expected. I guess the Main/Master Fader is on a different layer as it's mute/hardware still don't respond.

      However, if I'm controlling it from software side it seems to reflect on the production computer and it can be muted/controlled within that environment. (Headphones on) Not from the board though. Have to mute all mics instead of just pressing mute on Main/Master. Any ideas for this one?
