Question Technical help required!

To those who know,

I'm wanting to hook up my Alesis Microverb 4 sound prosessor upto a Allen & Heath X-Zone 62 mixer.

Ok, please tell me if this sounds ok to you?

MIXER AUX OUT -----------> EFX UNIT INPUT
EFX UNIT OUTPUT -----------> MIXER MIC (set to line)

After setting the MIC channel to 'Line' then this channel will operate the EFX when using the fader - but will this send signals to all channels (i.e the 2 decks & cd players) ??

Thanks
JB

Hi JB (of Deep Space board, I reckon?),

you will have a 100% effected signal on the MIC channel to which you've returned the source. This will not effect every channel.

I have never really gotten around the Xone 62's connectors enough to figure out any other solution (if there is one). I don't own one myself, so I've just fiddled with it briefly.

yes, you will. you will have one channel slider containing the effected signal. the rest of the channels will act like normal.

I hope that works!

Hey JB

I've got a similar setup to what you have, but I've got the Alesis Midiverb. There's really no other way to set things up than as you described it, since the Xone 62 doesn't have a dedicated fx return. You then control what channels you want to send to the fx unit using the aux pot for each channel. These can be set to both pre and post fader for extra control and different use of the effects. There's also the option of sending any channel going through the crossfader to the aux bus. Also sending the effected signal back to the fx unit will give you that dubbed out sound when using a delay. Play around with the setup and see what combinations you find sounding good with your music. It's easy to get carried away, so practice a bit at home so that you don't over do it when you play out.

Yeah, regenerative echos are really cool. Especially if you tweak the channel eq's a bit to get it to "morph" into a filtered type sound. Classic Lee Scratch Perry type echoes similar to what can be done with a reel to reel.

I used to DJ through a Mackie 1402 solely for the purpose of per channel aux sends. It even had an fx return, but I chose to run it back into its own channel, which among other things, allowed me to cue up and beat match loops from my Jamman.

I've since switched to a Bozak for the sound quality, and am planning on modding it to allow for a channel selectable aux send.
