Select desired tracks with the PFL buttons. This solos those tracks to the headphones.

Can't hear playback through Headphone socket, only through speaker monitors!


i suggest you contact Behringer Customer Service for advixce. Without the setup in front of me, it's hard to figure out the wire routeing, switch positions, ect. that may be leading to this problem. As they would be the people most familiar with the gear, they'sd be the people to ask. http://www.music-group.com/support/behringer/askquestion

Get sound with headset but not in speaker


One problem is if somebody has put a plug into the INSERT jacks on the back. If signalls have been driven into these that are intended to be used for external effects, an op amp can be blown and it is a pain to replace. Try plugging a se of headphones into each and see if you can hear a signal. You will only hear it in the LEFT headphone and this is normal. Make sure ALL the channels have the L/R switches punched down as these send each cahnnel into the MAIN mixing bus.

How can I use my headphone by a Peavey 14 compact mixer.Which switch do I needs to use.


With the headphones plugged in, and the headphone level turned up you should be able to hear whatever is coming through the main mix. If you cannot hear anything, make sure the buttons marked 'TAPE TO CTRL/ HP' and ' TAPE TO MIX' are not pushed down.

All I can say is that when I press the pfl button on any fader to listen trough my headphones on the main mix I hear a flicker but only from the main mix. from the sub out it is clear and even from the aux...


Check that the noise is NOT a funtion of an "effect" that the MAIN runs through. Do you hear it via the main amps or is it just in the headphones from the main? Pressing a PFL for a channel should bring ONLY that channel into the headphones UNLESS other PFL's are down... and NOT affect the main. Something is not clear here.

Beringer Xenyx 1204fx emits a clicking sound... Sounds like a Geiger Counter for radiation in my headphones. I have used the same sound mixer in the same configurations for 3 weeks. Now I've had it...


This is likely a problem with the FX in the unit or the power to it. Does the FX display act correctly? Check that the headphone source "Main Mix" is the ONLY button down for the headphones. If not, make it so. If the clicking is still there, try the headphones in the aux send jacks... see if EITHER left or right can hear the clicking. Back in the phone jack, scan across the SOLO channel buttons down one at a time. Is there clicking? If not, the problem involves the mixing buss or further down the line. Make sure the SOLO buttons at the FX Aux sends are up.
What effect does the MODE button have in SOLO and in PFL? Is the SOLO LED off? Is the number in the FX window SOLIDLY on and not flashing?

Marshall MG50 DFX amp line out/headphones not working


Contrary to what's posted above, the Marshall MG series does not pass the speaker power output through the headphone jack, and inserting the headphones into the jack does not disable the speaker. The headphone amp is a separate circuit and it's input is taken before the master volume. So Jan's post is exactly right. Turn off the master volume and turn up all the other gain/volumes as high as they will go. The other issue is that the headphone jack's output does not drive low efficiency headphones well, so you need some headphones similar to Sony's MDR-V700s to hear it well. Earbuds just don't cut it.

Aux out routing


This may sound really stupid on my part, but if the auxillary out requires phantom power did the phantom power switch get changed possibly?

Mixing headphone levels


More important than your keyboard for this question is the mixer you are using.

Put the metronome on a channel and only pot it up in an Aux send. Set up the mix for your phones using that same aux send. Use the main outs for PA.

That would be one way to do it. The idea is, you want to set up a mix for you, and a separate mix for everyone else. Mixers are capable of having several different mixes sent on their various outputs, so pick one to use for your headphones, and use a different set of outputs for the other mix.

A mixer does exactly that. It mixes. If you think of a graph, the X side would be your inputs, the Y side is your outputs. You can mix different versions of X at each Y.

How to use Audioline Pro DJ Multimedia Mixer M Dex 3.0


I have been recently using this Cd Dj deck at parties and have some general knowledge of the product, it has alot of potential. Is there anything in particular that you need help with? Or is it the general concept of using them.
Currently, i don't think there are that many websites that explain how to use the Cd decks, however i can provide you with some basic information. Most of the information here could be worked out by trial & error.
- Pitch control on the right of each cd deck can be slid up ( slows it down %) and slid down (speeding the track up %) i think the pitch control has a range of either +-10% or +-16%.

- Cue button, has the potential for Cue'ing or setting up the cd to instantly jump to the "cue'd" point with the press of this CUE button. This is done by either pressing play/pause button and rotating the jog wheel to a point of time in the track which automatically sets the cue point OR holding down the >> or << search button to find a spot within the track at a greater speed.

-Vinyl mode. Pressing this button will set the deck to the "vinyl mode" to simulate scratching or even backspins. pressing this button again will change the mode back.

- the Crossfader (or 'X' fader) button will select the left cd track if the x fader is all the way to the left and the right track if the x fader is all the way to right. having the X fader in the middle will play both tracks together.

- Low, Mid, High. These nobs on the middle section of the deck change the individual track by which it is corresponds. (Left side = left cd track, and vica versa) Low refers to the Bass of a track which can be essential for mixing two tracks and elminating excess bass noise. Mid refers to the drumming and even synth of a track, and changing this can result in some cool sounding effects. High refers to the 'high' frequencies of the track playing, such as snares, hi hats and possibly vocals. All these controls are crucial to understand in order to mix 2 songs together successfully. It's good to get a chance to muck around with these cointrols. The middle of each control resets the setting to normal or default.

- Channel fader. the two controls that slide up & down on both sides of the mixer on the deck. This is also referred to the volume setting. Useful for mixing seamlessly one track into another.

- Gain. This control at the top of the mixer refers to the volume level or 'gain' of the cd track that it corresponds to.

- Jog wheel. Serves 3 purposes. firstly it can be used whilst a song is playing to temporarily speed up or slow down the track to match with the song on the opposite side. secondly, whilst holding down the 'search' button, operates as a control to quickly find a spot in a song. and lastly when selecting "vinyl" mode, can simulate the reaction of a vinyl turntable. The scatch function, and backspin effect.

- The pitch button, is just another control to speed up or slow down a song temporarily whilst holding down the '+' or '-' button.

- Reverse button, for a certain amount of time will play the song on the left or right in reverse.

- Time. this button is essential to change the time selection on the cd deck, to either "Time elapsed", "Time remaining" and "total time remaining on the cd".

- the "tap" button, allows the user to physically "tap" the button in time with the song's beat, which calculates the Beats per Minute (Bpm) of that song. which is essential to work out the bpm of 1 track to mix the speed with that of the opposite deck.

- Cd/usb/sd, changes the mode of system reading. from CD to USB or SD card.

I really hope this general guide to using the Audioline ProDJ MDex3 has helped!
Peace. Marc.
