My guitar line out refuses to produce sound through the mixer.
I am beginner guitar player and for my first gig I went to the church to play for a communion, I was carrying my guitar (Juarez), a guitar amplifier (Palco 104), a DI box (Behringer DI100) and a soundcraft notepad 8FX mixer. To connect to the churches PA, I had to connect the mixer output (XLR) to the PA but when playing the guitar, feeble or no sound came through the mixer.
Guitar Line out (1/4inch TS) --> (1/4 inch TS) DI box input (XLR)--> (1/4 inch TRS) Mixer Mic in --> PA system
I have tried to :
- Connect the guitar directly to the mixer -- Feeble sound
- Connect the guitar amp line out to the mixer -- No sound
- Connect the guitar amp Line out to the DI box to mixer -- No sound
- Connect the guitar to DI box to mixer --- Low quality sound
As it turned out, I finally mic the guitar and it was no good, the mic picked up stray noises. Would buying a cabinet emulator DI box help, the kind of Behringer Ultra-G GI 100, which has a cabinet emulator help in getting the Line out of the guitar amp to produce sound on the mixer ?
Could somebody help me out ?
I really need to figure this one out, its frustrating.
