Don't count on it, I'm just a dumb tuba player.
What happens when you try a
different Mackie channel?
Same thing, and I'm back to that weird (split, actually) tone - even on
the new 1202 VLZ PRO I just came back from the store with...at least with
the Hosa insert (send/return cables ARE synonymous with insert cables,
right?) cable. Funny thing, I don't get that tone with the Monster
version (I'm probably repeating myself here), but no sound or levels to
other effects running through sends & returns.
Before leaving for the store, I suddenly was able to loop with either of
the two DL4s, no buzz/tone - sound of the loops were very faint
though. I decided it must be the mixer.
What happens when you patch the
DL-4 into/out-of aux or effect send/returns
instead of using the insert?
I think I tried this yesterday, but let's give it a go...same thing -
it's a perfect fifth, E-B.
What happens when you substitute
another unit (non DL-4) for the DL-4? (You
could even use a plain wire.)
None of the other units cause this to happen
I suspect a fault in the mixer
since you've changed everything else.
So did I until I brought this new one home...and apart from being
completely un-adept at the EDP, I thought (a week ago) that this was a
positive occurrence, so as to wean me from my 'training wheels' (the
DL4), but when I've been able to loop to any degree whatsoever with the
EDP, I invariably hit a point where - THWACK!! - EVERYthing is in the
Any other takers?

Subject: DL4 problem
Maybe someone has an idea about this...I've had the DL4 running
for going on two years now. Always connected the same way - Hosa
patch cable (1) connected from the L input/L output to the channel 1
channel as my clip-on mic) insert on my Mackie 1202. Recently, I
getting a tone (registering as a high D# on my tuner) generated thru
system, which I was able to trace to the DL4. I put in an different
cable and the sound got slightly louder. I have a performance this
so I went and bought another DL4, adapter and a Monster patch cable -
thing, except that now - regardless of which unit or cable - tone
seems to be intermittent (?...), but putting an insert in the Mackie
'deadens' the mixer - no levels on my effects with it plugged in
where it has always been. Anyone have any idea?
