Alesis Multimix 8 USB 2.0 problem
Hi, I'm new to the forums, I'm having a problem with my Alesis Multimix 8 USB 2.0 interface/mixer.
It was working fine up until yesterday, basically when I record (I'm using Reaper) I don't get any signal unless I really shout into my mics or tap them hard. Even then all I get is a very distorted track of what I've shouted etc, at a very low volume.
I've done a bunch of tests and the following are alright:
This morning I also recorded into both Reaper and Audacity with a Behringer uca202 coming out of a Tascam Portastudio coupled with an M-Audio Buddy preamp (my old setup for demoing stuff) and that worked fine.
So basically I've ruled out everything except the mixer. It turns on fine, lights up and I can get it to clip so I think the problem must be somewhere later on in the chain. I get the same results no matter which of the channels I use and like I said its taking signal in so I don't think its dodgy XLR inputs anyway. The mixer hasn't taken a knock or anything.
Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
Thanks a lot guys,
