Mixing on Behringer MX9000

Member Since: Oct 28, 2004

When I depress (S3)ie:the mixB/tape return switch at the top of a channel on MX9000 for mixdown, the pre's don't function.The only volume control I have whith mixB selected is with the faders. This wasn't the case with my previous console (Studiomaster)when I used the tape return button. My question:is this normal for this console or is it malfunctioning? If anyone has this console and can help , I thank you. How do you set up your MX9000 for mixdown? The manual is fairly lacking in this respect.
Thank you in advance,

Perfectly normal.

Side "A" travels from pre-amp, through expanded eq section to fader. Side "B" travels streight to smaller eq section to volume knob. The concept is that the "B" side is for playback auditing of the recorded signal. Now there is a "flip" switch on each channel where you can send "B" feeds down the "A" channel. Yow, now I know what the technical writer of the manual had to face. It's a nice board with lots of routing options. I did take me a little study and play to get it all figgured out however.

Question 2: Set up for mixdown. Ok here I'm loosing you a little. If you have the output of your recorder patched to the "B" side, (hereba Iba goba aganba) there are a ton of options, especially if you "flip" the channels.

Oh ya, Welcome also!

Hi, Thank you for your replies. Maybe I need to rephrase my question. The outputs of my HD24 are plugged into the (MixB/Tape return jacks) on the back of the MX9000. Yes, the small MixB section of the board is for monitoring. When you press switch S3 on your console to route the tape outputs through "A" Channel, do your "A" Channel pre's function? ie: can you adjust the volume of the tape outputs with "A" Channel's pre's when S3 is selected to route "B" Channels through "A" Channel. Thanks again for your time. echojet

No they do not. Fliped "B" channels go past the pre's directly into the top of the eq section and follow down through the faders. You are using the exact set up I use. The HD24 out and back to the MX9000. The assumption is that you have achieved the levels you want on the HD24 through the capturing process.
