you are going to have to give us more information than this I'm afraid. What system are you running, have you configured the i/o settings? Is tehre audio coming out of the speakers?

Name your mixer. There's a only a couple of set ups you can do but if you say which one you have and how you intend using the mixer then it can be easily sorted.

Default Still no sound

Xenyx 1202 mixer.

I got told to get dual phono and audio cables (RCA)

to be completely honest I dont know if im plugging them into the right place. I have high computer knowledge but no music equipment knowledge! I have things going from my interface and to my mixer and back again.

If you could be so kind as to tell me where;

Speaker XLR cables plug into
Dual phono's
Dual Audio jacks

At the moment ive got
Speakers XLR - Going to - Mixer CTRL ROOM OUT
RCA CD Tape Out - Going to - Line out < (I think thats wrong?)
RCA CD Tape In - Going to - Line In (L) & Line In (R)

Sorry to be sucha pain but we all gotta start somewhere i guess!

I'm not with you here. How are you getting the audio out of your computer to the mixer? are you going line out of the tascam into line in on the mixer or are you trying to use the mixer as an interface?

XLR main or control room outs on the mixer to speakers (providing the speakers are powered? If they are passive you'll need an amp.

At the moment we are guessing too much as to your set up. Explain in detail what your set up is, maybe even take some photos. We cant really help if we are trying to guess what you are doing.

You appear to want to go PC -Tascam - Mixer

In that case the 2 outputs from the Tascam interface go into the mixer. It depends what outputs you have on the Tascam. I'd go two 1/4 inch jacks out of the Tascam and into the L + R inputs on Line In 5/6. The level is adjusted below.

Your speakers should be attached to the Main Out. The Main Mix fader should be on 0. You can adjust the level on the incoming Line 5/6, which is to the left of the Main Mix fader. Get it close to normal listening volume.

The headphone volume is a knob at the bottom.

If you go the RCA route there's a button to press - CD/Tape to Mix - to the left of the Main Mix fader.

Which Tascam interface is it? That would help.

stupid question here... why do you want the audio to go out of your interface into the mixer before it goes back to your speakers? (The only thing you are doing is adding more noise to the signal for no good reason I can see).

Ok I see it has limited outputs. The cables you were advised to get are ok and just plug into the Cd/Tape input. You need to press the Cd/Tape to Mix button to hear it out of the speakers if they are attached to the Main out. You need to press Cd/Tape to CTRL button to hear it out of the phones. You need to turn the volume on via the phones/Ctrl Room knob. You could have it all going to the phones/ctrl room if your speakers are attached to the Ctrl Room out. I'd keep them separate. Just experiment to see what you want.

Just go out of your tascam straight into your speakers. The shorter the signal path, generally, the better. Low end mixers like the one you have really dont add anything good to the sonics.

Hi Luden,

You need to feed the speakers from the RCA "tape outs" which are an "always on" source from the Main Outs because you will probably have occaision to use a mic with headphones and the CTRL room out is ganged with cans! (Berries are far from the only people who commit this stupid design error!).

The AI needs to feed the RCA ins because..
1) This frees up the line inputs.
2) You need to hear back from the pc as you record new tracks but you do NOT want to re record that sound. This is where the "tape to mix" buttons come into play.

Trev. I take your point about a K.I.S.S. path but in truth he is only putting one extra, unity'ish gain op amp in the signal path and a headphone amp and Berry kit is not that bad so long as you keep the levels down. NEVER let more than the "0vu" LED flash!

OP again. Download the signal flow block diagram for that mixer (or the UB1202) and read, study and inwardly digest.

Dave.
