    Xenyx QX1002 How to output the effects only?


    I own a XenyxQX1002USB mixing board.

    I attach my (saxophone) mic to the first mono channel (1), opened the FX dial and use the FX send to go to my Effects Pedal.
    My pedal outputs to the other mono channel (2).

    So I have an FX loop, no big deal. But here comes my problem:

    I would like to output ONLY the processed sound (2) to the amplifier. In other words, I need channel 1 to be muted somehow, while it still sends signal to the FX Send bus.

    When I turn down Level 1, it also stops sending to the FX Send.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks,

    Hi Caspar,

    As the FX send is not PRE/POST switchable, you cannot hear only the wet signal from the FX return without hearing also the dry signal from channel 1 as the FX send is fixed to work as a post-fade send (which means after the channel fader. If the channel fader is down, no audio will be sent to the FX unit).

    If you purchased the mixer within the last 30 days I would recommend you return it to the retailer in exchange for a QX1204USB, which features two aux sends per channel. The second goes to the internal FX unit post-fade as per usual, but the first is PRE/POST switchable, which is what you need. You will need to connect your FX unit to the AUX SEND 1 output, set the switch to PRE and close the channel fader, to hear only the wet FX return.

    Kind Regards,
