Question about Behringer XENYX 2442FX Mixer
Its hooked up to both the computer and the speakers, but when I'm recording in pro-tools 11 I can't hear any of my playback. I have to bounce the track and then listen to the mp3s on the computer. How can i fix this problem?
Hello. Im not too familiar with Protools (mainly because its a headache right out of the box), but MY understanding is that Protools won't recognize a lot of external audio devices. (such as behringer)
however..if you are able to record and 'see' the audio there, just not hear it, there might still be a solution, & seeing as how i never used protools, it still might just work.
First of all:
if you're using the UCA-200 external usb box connected with rca cables, then my solution SHOULD work, as it is what i did to get mine to finally do the same thing.
#1) you will need to pick up (x2) RCA-1/4 jack adapters . (radioshack, about $2 each)
#2) insert a red and white rca cable in the RIGHT side of the Mixer's CD/Tape out .....the other end of the rca cables will go into the UCA-200 INPUT.
#3) with 2 more cables in the OUTPUTs of the UCA-200, put the rca-1/4 jack adapters on both cables, insert them back into the Mixer inputs 9/10 (in the analog 1/4 instrument inputs)
#4) adjust volumes accordingly, make sure channel 9/10 isn't muted, headphone volume is up, etc..
.......if that didn't do the trick, then you will need to go into the Audio Settings menu on your computer..(or protools) and change the default playback device to your mixer (probably named Generic USB or something similar)
I really hope this helps somewhat, because i remember going through the same thing & it took a looong time to find the correct awnser.
best of luck!
check for any updated drivers for your mixer! (I personally recommend you do a Google search for Asio4all drivers, they're pretty good)
if your awnser is A), i would suggest going into your computer's Audio Settings menu, and select the mixer as your default playback device.

Passive loudspeakers are connected to the two "Speakon" connectors on the back of the unit. BUY GOOD cables for your speakers!!!! Whatever you do don't have a speaker line come loose while driving audio out !!! You will arc- out the rear-most power amp... I know, I repaired two of these now with the problem.
Connect the recording device to either the "tape OUT" RCA jacks or either of the pairs of MAIN out TRS jacks.
Set the slide switch for the MAIN L/MAIN R (upper position) leave this in this position unless you understand what the other positions are for to avoid damage. You will NOT need the other positions.
Further: Power ALL interconnect devices from the SAME receptacle source to avoid ground loops and possible damage.
YOUR passive speakers should be rated at least 300 Watts RMS continuos power handling or 600 Watts peaks.
Drive consumer stereo speakers with this and you will smoke the speakers and MAYBE blow the amp. This is a powerful amplifier and if you don't have at least 15 inch speakers you MUST really hold down the volume lest you blow the speakers.
Above all read the manual... yes, it is a bit hard to understand...
If you have a problem you can contact me by email for a bit of help. I have wo of these I have been using at venues now.

SOURCE: I can't hear sound from
In the "Sounds and Devices" of teh control panel under the Voice and also recording tabs amke sure the 2442 is selected instead of teh computer internal audiop system.
