20 Most Recent Behringer Ddm4000 5-channel Digital Midi Dj Mixer New! Questions & Answers

My knowledge of mixers dates back to the pre-computer days of pure analogue sound so I know nothing about digital mixers.

I took a brief look at the specs and didn't understand most of them and I reckon it would take an uninitiated young person a year to become thoroughly familiar with what it can do and two years for everyone else. I feel one problem could be inadvertently leaving something, some process that had been previously used running in the background when attempting something new.

All equipment produces distortion and every component, lead and connection produces noise but quality gear is built so it is inaudible to the human ear, hopefully.

Distortion is principally caused by a poor signal to noise ratio, by poor quality or faulty equipment, by component mismatch, by overloaded audio stages or by excessive compression or clipping of the signal, either deliberately or accidentally or received interference from other equipment.
People who work a lot with audio equipment tend to instinctively know the type and cause of distortion when they hear it and can take steps to cure it or minimise it.

Some distortion is useful, the fuzz-box that made so many guitarists famous, for instance, is pure overload distortion...

you should have a headphone out on the mixer or you need a mixer

Behringer is stingy about schematics... however here is one for their DJX700 which MAY have a similar power supply to yours:


Scroll down to "get manual" and click to download... IGNORE other download links.
On page 9 near the lower right corner is the simple power supply, minus the transformer but showing the rectifier diodes, filter caps, and the three terminal regulators. These regulators have a thermal shutdown feature so if they seem to run VERY hot they might cause your problem. Common things are failing electrolytic filter caps. Behringer also uses switching power supplies in some gear and I have schematics of examples of those as well... but peak in your unit and see what type supply you have.

Freeze up is usually overheating, check your heatsinks and if the compound has dried up.

Behringer recommends using a shielded CAT 5e cable with Ethercon connectors wired to the T568B standard to connect the two. Also you need to make sure that the board is completely powered on before turning on the S32 for proper connection. Make sure you are connecting between the Aes50A ports. When connected you should be able to see a green light next to Aes50A in the main screen. Then you will need to properly route the channels.

See if another audio source connected to the mixer produces the same results. Try with the same cable and then with another cable. The purpose of this procedure is to determine if it is the cable and/or the laptop. (Sound card problem???) or mixer.
Is it ALL audio or just specific audio from for instance, a music application? Does it cut out using iTunes?
The mixer may have a bad or oxidized input. Try a different input channel? Are you using headphones to listen? It may be the headphone amp? OR, if audio is produced via amped speakers, it may be the mixer output. Does the mixer have metering? Do the meters also cut out? Does the laptop do the same thing if plugging in headphones to the laptop directly (no mixer)?
