  • Mixer question

    Hi,

    I have a mixer question about my Behringer MX602A. I know very little about mixers... as I've recently found out!

    I want a relatively simple thing, listen to a piece of music, play along with it and only record my playing.



    Larger picture

    I have connected the output of my computer to the tape-in on the mixer. My drums are attached to one of the stereo tracks, of course.

    The tape output on the mixer goes back to the line in on my computer where it is being recorded.

    The headphones are connected to the phones on the mixer.

    The headphones should give me both the music as well as my playing. The tape out should only send the drums back to my computer.

    This all sounds pretty basic and is what one expects of a mixer... but I can't get it to work! I know it has something to do with the little buttons marked "2TK to Control Room" and "2TK to Mix".

    I can get the mixer to the stage where I can hear the music and it outputs only the drums, but then I can not hear myself over the headphones... it's very frustrating.

    Please help me...

    Thanks!

    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    it's not possible with your mixer

    For that you need a mixer with subgroups.

    Question; if you route any audio to the CD input of the TD-8, will the audio be sent to the headphone out or as well to the master out? If it's only to the headphone out, you can use it this way.
    Other wise you could route all the sounds from the TD-8 to the TD-8's sub outputs as well as the main, so you can listen to both the drums and cd through the headphone/main out and record the signal coming from the sub outputs.
    Good luck with it!

    Met vriendelijke groeten,
    Pieter

      I agree with you Pieter.
      I have a TD-10 and I can select the 'mix in' to only the 'headphones' or 'headphones and main-out'. I think the TD-8 will have this option as well. This will do the trick for you Rob.
      If you need a Mixer with a subgroup for a relative low price and good specs, buy a spirit folio SX-20 http://www.soundcraft.com/products/spirit_sx.html It will cost about fl 1500,- and gives you a lot of options for home-recording.

      Greetings /groetjes

        Thanks Pieter & Peter.

        Too bad it isn't possible with the mixer I have. fl 1500 (around €680) may be relatively cheap, it is absolutely a lot of money.

        I will look at your suggestion of running it through the TD8 Mix input but that is only half the solution. I also want to record additional instruments in the same way...

        Greetings/Wees gegroet,

        Rob

            Hé Pleiadian and MPCman, just curious, where in the Netherlands do you come from?

            Groetjes, (to you to digitsone)

              Thanks Harlock! It is a bit confusing... but yes it helps. What can you expect from such a low budget mixer...

              Hi Peter,

              I was born & raised near Den Bosch, I studied in Utrecht for about 8 years and now I live in Bergen op Zoom.

                            i know. i was living in paris during the summer of 98. man, was that a fun party on the champs elysee on july 13th.

                            some random dude kissed me in the middle of the street and said: "We showed the world we're the best at football. Now we'll show them we're the best at partying!"

                            groeten.

                            (how do you pronounce this?)

                              G is impossible to explain to an english-speaking person! When we dutch speak our language English persons usually start to make back in the throat noises! But maybe you can use the G like in greetings.....
                              the rest of the word goes like routan and the a is pronounced as the a before a word....like a drum...(in "posh" English that is).....
                              Maybe someone can record it????? mcpman????
