Early versions of Pro Tools do not support Behringer devices.
The newly released Pro Tools 9 can be calibrated through the Pro Tool Aggregate I/O in your audio/midi settings.
Good Luck, Cody J.

What could be causing a strange static sounding noise in the headphones only when pressing PFL on any channel.


The "PFL" Stands fo r"Pre Fader Level". Just in case you did not realize. so when you press the "PFL" button , and the red light goes out?, You're saying that the hissing goes away and that you have clarity. Yes? and the volume presents no issues? Also correct? Part of that simply, is with the PFL in the on position. You are engaging the fader for one, which will add to an already boosted signal ( the the fader is turned Up?). also you may have your Clip set incorrectly. to set this you turn PFL off, then at your signal input level Dial (usually at the very top in-line with your fader. _ set the volume on your device, then input clip level on the board \ to where the clip light comes on. not a steady light, but a blinking light so make it steady, then back it off a hair. Okay? this whole time make sure your mains are down. or off at the faders. Once clip is set., PFL is in off position, gradually turn your mains up to level. Now, the PFL is for when you have more than one signal. say from an instrument on another channel. unless you have that? No need to use the PFL. If you do have an instrument in line,. then, before you turn PFL on,make sure that your fader on that channel is turned off. -turn on your PFL, then gradually bring that to level. never messing with the mains level.

I know that is a lot of info. but it is a process. that should eliminate any hissing you may have heard.
Good luck!!

I need an activation code for pro tools 8?


When ProTools is installed on a computer it needs to be authorized to work. This has to be done via a dongle, a socalled iLok . The authorization is done by www.ilok.com. You need a dongle with the authorized registration of ProTools on your computer to make ProTools work.

I can't hear the sound from my PC when I'm using the 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 bounc


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!

*also*

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.

Sound pops an crackels how do you change fse on mini mbox


Fuse would have NOTHING to do with the problem. Make sure to use balanced audio lines... XLR or TRS to mics or other devices.

Distortion on vocal reproduction on Vocalist Live 2. Even with input volume down to minimum a loud vocal performance produces distortion on single voice and harmony output.


You need to check the actual signal levels to make sure they are within the specs for the unit. The mic input is low impedance. Your mic should be like a Shure SM58 or equivalent. The output is fairly high... up to +14DB which will require you to turn down the trims on a mixer this runs into or set a -20Db pad at the input. I suspect your distortion is from the device output to the mixer input. It is VERY important that the mic does NOT "hear" the speakers as the feedback loop resulting will be mass distortion. The guitar should also not "hear" the mains.

The recording level to my Mbox is very low for some reason. I am running Pro Tools LE and I have a shure 87a microphone. Every time I attempt to record a track, the input volume is incredibly low...


Make sure you turn the Phantom power on the Mbox2 on as the Shure 87A requires it being a condenser mic.Make sure you use XLR mic cables. These are just things to check on.

How do I get the USB input into the monitor channel on a Behringer Xenyx1832usb


I suspect that you don't, at least easily.

Try this:

IF you can send it to the mains, run a cable from the mains 1/4 jack back to an unused channel input. Set the monitor level on that channel to send the mains back out to the monitor so that anything on the mains from USB will be in the monitors... This is hokey and you have to disable this channel by not sending it to the mains, from the mains lest the thing will oscillate.

As versatile as this Behringer stuff is, I rather doubt that the USB can be routed directely by setting to the monitors... But just ry to find documentation about this!

Typical of this brand, finding and understanding the documentation can be frustrating.

I am trying to upload protools le 8. starts to upload & sticks


Are you installing from a disk or a download? Sometimes the program gets corrupted during the download and you have to do it again. You may require specific drivers for your machine. Its always good to contact the company for support:http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=3&langid=100& Hope this helps.

I have a behringer xynyx 1204,and a protools personal studio,with mbox2 mini,and im just wondering if its possible to plug the mic into the mixer,instead of the mbox,and still be able to record vocals into...


It is possible, you can simply put a Y-cable for Mic or a splitter for the mbox and the Mic. You can plug the mic directly to the mixer then the other jack on the splitter connected to the mbox.
