    I have the umc204hd playback ports 1 & 2 wired to a fostex sub woofer with its passthru outputs connected to two mackie mr 524 speakers. I'm using Hauptwerk to supply the audio to the umc204hd. I  have the latest version umc204hd asio driver, with it's output set to the max. The audio volume is lower than expected even with the speaker's volume controls set to the max. Any suggestions are most welcome!

    I've submitted two tech support requests for the umc204, both were closed with no apparent update from support that I can find...

      Hi David ( @dlgabry ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  I've seen a few posts about the RCA level being lower than expected our of the PB outputs.  I have a 404HD which also has balanced PB outputs and I've always used those.  I think it depends on the input sensitivity of the amp. In situations like this I usually put a stereo line pre-amp in between the output device and the input of the amp.  Something like this should work fine: https://www.amazon.com/STEREO-LINE-PRE-AMPLIFIER-15DB-12VDC/dp/B00I01ZNUS.


       


      Hope this helps,

    Hi,

    Someone to tell me what is internal wiring of DC-8?

    I think to bi-wire them (2 runs per speaker), but dont know what gauge and cable type to looking for.

    The amp is Marantz PM11S3.

    Thank you,

      Hi, Use a thick multistrand cable for the LF and a good quality solid core for the HF to yield the best results. The amplifier sends exactly the same signal through single or bi-wired cables. The difference comes in the separation of frequencies at the speaker end of the cable. The internal components (crossover) of a speaker sends the high frequencies and low frequencies to the correct drivers/tweeter. Even though the difference is minimal, many audiophiles claim this bi-wiring method increases the stereo separation and perceived level of detail.

    I have a Behringer 204 that I am utilizing with my iMac. I'm trying to get 4 channels to play utilzing the audio outputs but cannot find the correct software. Does anyone have a recommendation of software that has this capabilities?

      Hi Ryan ( @rmayer121 ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  There are many applications that support multi-channel audio.  It would probably help if you explained a bit more about what you need or what you are trying to accomplish.

      I have 4 audio animatronic controller boards that are activated when sound is ran through them. I would like to be able to utilze my Behringer 204HD for this and export the audio to 4 separate channels. I've created the tracks with Audacity, but it only has the capability of exporting 2 channels. Just need specific software that has the ability to edit tracks and export into 4 channels. Does this make more sense? Thanks for the help.

      Hi Ryan, 


       


      Just about any DAW (digital audio workstation) software will do what you want.  One that's popular around here is Reaper which comes with a 60 free trial and is only $60 to purchase after that.  If you want something that is free take a look at Tracktion T7.


       


      BTW, sounds like a fun project.  Is this for a theatre production or for a Halloween setup or something else? 


       


      Hope this helps,

      I will definitely check out Reaper for the free trial and then if it works, I can decide if I want to spend $60. I think I tried downloading Tracktion last year and ran into issues so I gave up on it. 


      This is for my Halloween setup I have at my house (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6czEVZX-wU). RIght now I have 2 characters running off my computer and then have a local iPod I have to turn on for others. If this works, it gives me the ability to expand the amount of animated characters I can have. Thanks for your help Ken!

      Very cool!  Let me know if you need a hand with Reaper.  Tracktion has had stability issues in the past.  I've been using Reaper for about 9 years in a lot of theatrical productions as well as personal projects.   Most of my theatre work these days is in soundscapes and audio special effects.  We use MIDI and OSC messages, as well as Ethernet UDP packets to trigger sound effects based on various electro-mechanical events.

    Hello!
    I'm interested in using Lake Processing LM-44 for my home audio stereo setup that required one crossover point at 200hz (high pass @12db and low pass @24db)

    I have few questions.

    First, does the LM-44 have built in volume control for attenuation?? Since the LM-44 has 2 pairs of analogue XLR outputs, can I assign one single AES digital input connected to the Music Server and set the crossover at 200hz with one pair of analogue output for above 200hz and the other for under 200hz??

    Thanks!

    Hey all! New to this, please be patient. 

    I Just purchased a pre-owned VLTouch2. When I received it all of the presets have been erased and I’m wondering if there is a way to restore these? Are they downloadable once I have the unit up to my computer for updates? Any tips or tricks would be appreciated I am new to this piece of wonderfulness and my hands

      Hey @DblMoonChild,
      Welcome to the fold!  You can use our free VoiceSupport 2 software to update your Touch 2, manage presets, and download new presets from our Cloud library.  To restore factory presets, all you need to do is use VoiceSupport to "delete" whichever preset(s) you're trying to restore, and the factory presets will repopulate themselves.  That is to say, the first 200 preset slots can never be empty, they either contain their respective factory preset, or they can be overwritten with user presets, and deleting those edited user presets will restore the slot back to its factory preset.  Experiment lots, store your own edited presets, and also check out the additional presets you can download from VoiceSupport.  Cheers!

    Hey folks,

    I own the  MS40 monitors that have built in DAC. The manual says it is >24bit 192kHz.

    My question is how does it go about handling digital feed, example Lpcm or RAW audio via optical?

    Does the built in DAC upsample any digital signal to 24/192 for analogue or does it decode/convert the digital signal to match the fed sample rate?

    Thanks!

    Chris

      The monitors accept standard SPDIF LPCM digital audio at whatever sample rate/bit depth you send to them. The DAC will simply just convert these signals directly to analogue to drive the onboard amps. No clever DSP involved.

    Hi guys,

    For  years I've used my computer's onboard soundcard, but as I've just picked up a midi keyboard, and I wanted really low latency, I needed something with an ASIO driver. So I got a Behringer 204HD. And for that purpose - it works great. I have my keyboard plugged in via MIDI and I am using 8 samples so I get 1ms latency, it's a dream.

    However, obviously using the UMC Asio drivers my speakers can't work unless I plug them directly into my audio interface instead of my soundcard.

    As it is, I use a 5.1 speaker system that I'm pretty attached to. Normally, I plugged it via the sub into my PC with realtek onboard drivers with two 3.5mm jacks, green and black (it also has an orange one for centre speaker but I'm not precious about it, I doubt there is a scenario where that is going to work). Then the 4 tweeters plug in via RCA ports on the back of the speaker. I then use Realtek's surround fill to get my music to play from all the tweeters instead of just stereo.

    Now I have moved everything over to the interface. So I got adaptors that convert the 3.5mm jacks to 1/4" jacks and I plugged them into the Main Output sockets on the back of the 204HD.

    Then in Windows when I'm not in my DAW and simply using MME for standard operation, listening to music etc, I have my default playback device set to the 204HD's OUT 1-2, which as I understand it outputs through the two output ports and 2 of the RCA playback output ports too. I then have turned on Virtual Surround in the Enhancements.

    However, it only plays through tweeters 1 and 2 (even if I do a surround test). Now, this makes sense to me in a way, I only have 2 jacks so why should 5 speakers work? However, it has always been plugged into my computer by the same two wires before and I could always get 5 speaker audio before.

    I know that I could get two more monitor speakers with their own power supplies and plug them into the RCA ports to get more speakers running, but I can't do that with the tweeters because obvs they are powered from the main box and nothing would amplify the signal.

    Is this a lost cause or is there a way for me to, as before, plug all my tweeters into my sub and have them output despite the sound running through the Behringer?

      Hi Alex ( @Alexrose ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Can you give us the make and model of the speaker system you are using?  I don't think it's possible to do what you want to do with the 204HD but I want to understand how those speakers work first.

      Hi Ken,


      It's a Creative Inspire T6300. It kinda makes sense to me that it wouldn't work; the interface has a left out and right out so in a way, how could that output to 5 speakers? But, at the same time.. my onboard motherboard soundcard was able to do this through two 3.5mm slots so I don't get how it ever worked.

      The 204HD has four outputs on RCA connectors. So you would need two 3.5mm socket to 2 x RCA adaptors. Lime Green plug to 204 outputs 1 & 2 and Black to outputs 3 & 4. You would then have to assign the appropriate outputs from your DAW to feed the correct channnels to your now 4 chan surround speakers. Not really full surround unfortunately since the 204 won't be able to get decoded surround from Dolby/DTS encoded audio files unless you use something like https://ac3filter.net/wiki/AC3Filter

      The RCA won't work because the tweeters don't have amplifiers. The sub contains the amplifier, the tweeters plug into the sub, which plugs into the interface through two 3.5mm jacks.


      Also Windows MME can't even output 3-4 and 1-2 simultaneously anyway, it can only output 1-2 so even if the tweeters were monitor speakers that solution still wouldn't work. I'm trying to get my front and back speakers to operate through normal computer use using MME drivers - which already worked on my onboard soundcard, I don't care about what they're doing in my DAW in ASIO.

      I am not talking about the RCA connectors out of the Sub to the 'Tweeters', as you call them, (it's daft to use RCA for loudspeaker level audio signals anyway IMHO). It is the four RCA outputs on the back of the 204 which need a couple of 3.5mm socket to two RCA adaptor leads as linked to by Ken.

    OK, I'm just getting started in all this -
    how do I combine the Behringer X-TOUCH ONE with my Korg DW-6000 midi synth keyboard and DAW on windows 10 . . . any simple clear instructions on this would be very much appreciated

    I like the concept / design features of the X-TOUCH ONE, but would like to find out if I can actually use it in this configuration.

    thanks

      Hi Charles ( @charles000 ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Since most setups are specific to the DAW you want to use, we'll need to know what DAW you'll be using before we can help.

      OK, fair enough, very much appreciate your response.


      I've been tinkering with MixPad just to get used to working with a DAW, loading up various VST modules and so on, but now want to focus on a more serious type of DAW.


      So far my choice has narrowed down to Cubase or Reaper . . . both of which have interesting features and can utilize a vast collection of compatible VSTs.


      With either of these, can the X-TOUCH ONE interface with those DAWs and my ancient (but still very much working) Korg DW-6000?


      Again, your help help is very much appreciated.


      Charles

      Hi Charles, 


       


      I've been a long time Reaper user so I'd recommend you download the fully-functional version and give it a go during the very generous 60-day trial period.  I use a full size X-Touch with Reaper so I haven't looked at the status of the XT1 support but I'll do that this weekend.  As far as the DW-6000, you'll need to get a MIDI interface for your computer in order to get MIDI in and out of your DAW.   It should work fine with Reaper. 


       


      I'll be in touch, 


      Ken

      Thank you for the info!


      So, I'm going to try the Reaper.


      As for MIDI interface, I was looking at some of the Bheringer products - 


      Behringer X-TOUCH ONE seems intriguing, but might be overkill.


      If you happen to have a suggestion for the MIDI interface, nothing too fancy, I'll probably just go with that.


      Many thanks

    Just inhereted a nice pair of Revolution XT 8F's. There are no signs of the floor spikes or protectors anywhere. Where can I purchase a replacement set of said floor spikes as the speakers seem a bit unstable without them.

    I'm located in Scotland in the UK

    Thanks in advance

    I am looking at an NX6000, I need to know if it can accept and output various waveforms, like sine, square, sawtooth etc

    and what frequency range it has ie 0.1 hz to 25mhz,no details are inlcuded in the manual.

    Also how does warranty work if needing repairing? do I have to use couriers to send back?, if so I need a local dealer (I am in Doncaster, England)
