    Not getting levels on my Behringer UB1002 fx Mixer

    Sign in to disable this ad
    The mixer seems to be working. Phantom power light works, but I am not getting levels. I have it plugged into a XLR and then into the computer. When I try to set the clipping levels, the lights do not move. Any ideas?

    Can you clarify ware you are setting your levels?
    What DAW you are using?
    Did you install any drivers for the mixer?
    Does your DAW recognize the mixer?

    The Behringer UB1002fx does not have USB, please clarify your set up. Are you plugging a condensor mic into an input channel of the mixer (assume so)? How are you connecting to your computer?

    Are you talking about levels on the mixer or on the computer?

    What is 'it'? Is 'it' a microphone you have connected to the mixer via XLR? What sort of mike?

    Or is 'it' the mixer that you have connected to the computer somehow? And if so, how?

    How are you setting the clipping levels, and which lights do not move?

    Possible start setting points. If using a dynamic with a Cloudlifter, FetHead, or other similar gain boost dvice, 48v phantom needs to be 'ON'.

    If the mixer cannot act as an audio interface, you need to purchase an audio interface. On-board sound chips do not cut it for these things.. You need an audio interface to go between your mixer and PC. Like one from MOTU, RME or Focusrite

    Also, thank you for the many responses!

    I am plugging in an XLR microphone Apex 435 condenser mic. When I turn on the Phantom Power button, I get it lighting up, so power is getting through ( I had to buy a replacement Behringer UB1002 Xeynx power adapter).

    Unfortunately, I have noticed that I am not getting any power lights or level lights for the MAIN SECTION.

    The mixer I have looks like this (I gave the wrong version of the mixer in the description, sorry about that - it is the UB1002 Xeynx):

    I am wondering if there is something wrong with the actual mixer because of this. Power is flowing through it because of the Phantom power working, but the POWER button and LEVELS (when using the mic, screaming into it ) do not light up.

    Off hand looking at the service manual for the mixer, part of the internal power supply section in the mixer may have a problem. The light for the +48vdc phantom power is a different circuit than the +/- 15vdc power for the power light and the meters. I would believe the +/- 15vdc power section has a problem since the power light doesn't come on.

    The power adapter you bought is the Behringer PSU3-UL?

    so that means short of opening it up and looking for dead circuits, this is a non-starter?

    sounds like the power supply is broke or is not connected properly but
    worst case the circuits inside are fried - just why did you need to buy a new power supply anyway ???

    best case the power light is not working and you have some setting wrong

    the manual says you need an mxlu5 adapter but amazon does say the psu3 works with that unit

    how did you plug it into the computer? the problem may be in the computer end

    did this thing ever work right for you ?
    what changed ??
