We just bought a Behringer 2442fx Xenyx. We use it for our 4 piece band. Drums,key,bass,guitar. We use 4 of the inputs for drums,1 for keys,1 for bass,2 for keys. We send them by direct outs to our main mixer at the church. We use the mixer to create each band members own mix using the 4 auxilaries and send it to a pre-amp headphone amp for our in ear monitors to go into this pre amp. Often this set up is great however, i would say about 50% of the time it doesnt work. The auxillaries shut off and none of us can hear anything. I mean literally today we were rehearsing and everything just cut out. we cant get it to come back on. but i can gurantee we will go into tomorrow and it will be fine again. The problem is not a faulty board either. We've exchanged the board 2x. the guys @ gc tested it there, it works fine for them, which it does for us also until all of a sudden our aux sends arent working. I also tried plugging directly into the aux sends 1,2,3,4 nothing comes out either. Please help, anything whatsoever will help. any tips? suggestions..?/ Please help!!! thanks!

*All* of the aux sends fail? Probably the headphone amp. *One* or two of the auxes fail? Probably a cable.

Yes for instance yesterday all of the auxes failed went out during practice. We couldnt get them back on either. It was one of the times where auxes 3 and 4 only worked and those are fx channels

Sounds like something is heating up and failing. Of course it would work at GC, unless you put it through more rigorous testing, like how you play at rehearsal.

I'd say get it replaced. ASAP, so you don't worry about warranty. I've heard Behringer is pretty decent about Customer support and such. I've never used them myself, having heard too many stories like this.

Uh, at least one more time . . .

What kind of headphone amp are you using?
