Hi guys,
Ok this problem is driving me crazy to figure out , can anyone help
I have a 12 chan stero none powered desk , this is connected to a stage snake , I have 1 amp for front house speakers and one for monitors , I usually connect a cd player or laptop strength into one of the channels by 1/4 inch jack the other end connects into the cd/ computer . Inbetween this cable I have a ground loop.
Ok so that's the background now the problem is when playing a music cd through the desk the slider won't turn the volume down I have to adjust the volume by the main speaker / monitor slider, they keyboard and mics adjust fine with their individual channel sliders.
Anyone got any ideas? Thanks jay

Are you perhaps plugged in to effects returns?

Exactly what mixer do you have and exatly what is the label on the input you are plugged into?

EXACTLY! More information is needed.

It is like asking on a car forum "My car won't start-what is the problem".

Well START by with what make & model car and year.

It could be all sorts of different things-even a routing issues with the channel going to a pre fade send and being returned via another channel or effects return or inserted into the mains or all kinds of other possibilities.

Further... Definitely not in the effects I plugged it into 1/4 jack on one of the channels it has a channel input by a 1/4 jack or xlr
Not sure of model or year all I know it's a samick non powered 12 chn mixer
Thanks
Jay
