Bizzacore Posted February 11, 2009 Share Posted February 11, 2009 Hello All, I'm having a problem with an Alesis Studio 24 that I just recently purchased. Actually.. a couple of problems. Preface: I had a Behringer Xenyx 1832FX, and the Right main out channel took a dump. It just quit working, so I was in need of a new board for my radio show. Something cheap, and versatile.. so I figured the Studio 24 would be a great replacement because it offers a lot of options and it's a couple years old so I can get one fairly cheap (being that our budget is little to none and it's all out of pocket). Well, here are my problems after having this board installed after 3 days. Here goes: Problem 1: My Right main out channel doesnt work. I'm back to square one.. and I can't figure out why it doesnt work. I have 6 mics in my setup, and I have them on the subgroups so that I have a single control to pull them out for breaks. When I monitor the groups, I have both sides, both VU meters light and everything like that. When I click off the "GRP 1/2" button to monitor L/R main out, I get Left side only. I can solo any of those mics, or the stereo line channels I use for my computers and it'll go right back to monitoring both sides. I don't get it at all. The only thing I can think of is that it's blown. Problem 2: I'm trying to setup a mix-minus for my phone lines. Since I don't have a lot of money I'm currently using Skype for our phones, and I was using a pre-fader aux send to the box for the Skype, with that machine's input taken out of the mix so that the callers couldn't hear themselves back in the phone. In this case the only pre-fader sends I have are Monitor 1 & 2. I tried sending Monitor one out to that machine, tried recording in Adobe Audition.. nothing but a bunch of noise. I tried again later on, it picks up the computer inputs (Channels 11/12 and 13/14) no problem, but not the inputs 1-6 I'm using for the mics. I tried them in both 1 and 2, using the hard panning for either I tried .. adjusting the send level from the channel itself and the master ... and not a thing was going through. Now, a big concern is that I bought a defective board from someone on eBay. A bigger conern is that I'm going to get stuck with it. If anyone has any ideas about this, or knows that Alesis boards crap out or something like that, please I ask you or your insight, because if these boards are known to dump, I'll look around for a used Mackie or something or the sort. I really don't have the money to get an on-air console (like the Audioarts Air +1 that I really want) so something like this low budget used board will have to do. Thanks so much everyone, I really appreciate it! Chris Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
