asked May 21, 2021 in AR Hybrid USB Mixers by lornehart (130 points)
When I turn the mixer on with nothing but the power cable plugged in, all faders zeroed, the right channel redlines and screeches for a while until everything boots up. There will still be a block or two on the VU meter yellow for the duration of use, only on the right. If speakers are plugged in, it’s deafening even with no volume or gain or anything turned up on it. Am I up screwed? Thanks.

I'm having the exact problem but Bluetooth will not work, at all, phantom power LED will not illuminate nor will the mixer provide phantom power and Universal Control doesn't find it (I also have an old AR8 and Universal Control finds that with no issues. All I did was move the mixer from one room to another (it worked flawlessly prior to moving it) and when I reconnected everything all hell broke loose.

That doesn't sound like typical behavior. You might want to open a support ticket so they can help you out.
