I just accidentally deleted a song from my little sound dj cart. I wasn't paying attention and my thumbs were in autopilot. Anyone know how to recover that, or am I just screwed?

I have a setup with two DMGs (sometimes running through guitar pedals for effects) running through a Behringer 802 mixer (http://www.guitarcenter.com/Behringer/X … 6902518.gc)

My problem is that I can only get proper stereo sound (by which I mean my L/R panning effects playing in the correct speakers) when I use a 1/8" to RCA cable and plug into the CD/Tape port, which I can't adjust High/Med?/Low levels on.

I typically use a 1/8" stereo cable with a 1/8->1/4 adapter on the end to plug into one of the first two inputs. The audio comes through both speakers, but when I pan to one side it just gets really quiet.

Am I just using the wrong cables? What should I use if I want to do this right?

(Also - I recognize that the guitar pedals are mono and I won't get proper stereo when I plug into them. I have tried to use them separate from my main set up and then send to the pedals, but I am clearly doing that wrong as well...)

Thanks for any help

Given that it seems like everyone is hella busy, I am inclined to push the concert to something like May 20. would that be better for those of you who have less expendable time?

So here, is what I got from the people at the Prop:

The steps to running something like this with them include:

0. Choosing an artistic medium for the event (this one is obvious)

1. Getting a team together and thinking of a cause to support

2. Having that team interact with the team at The Prop to put together the logistics of the event (who/how/where) - they say they can help a bunch on getting logistics together

I saw a link to playpower (http://playpower.org/) on No Carrier's site, which I think is a legit cause that can bring in support, is easy to have people rally around - potentially easy to get people interested, and fits with our medium very well.

So - the question now is: who might be interested in getting stuff organized, and who is interested in playing? If you want to help get things organized, send me a message with your email and we can then take steps in getting a date and location set up. If you are just interested in playing, let me know that as well

I'll email the people, get some information, and get back to all y'all once I know more details

I know some people who run a non-profit that connects artists with charitable causes, and after talking with some of them they might be interested in helping set up a chiptunes event. They are really good at organizing and running events, so it might be a good way to have another Chicago area concert, bring in some good artists, help out a good cause, get the scene a little more established in illinois, and have someone else handle details.

Would any Chicago area (or midwest) chiptunes people be interested in such an event? Their non-profit is called "The Prop," and their site is <www.the-prop.org>
