Hi folks. I’ve got an MC6000 mk1 which has always worked perfectly but now I’m having issues with channel 1 on it. I’m currently using the mixer disconnected from a laptop with external sources plugged in, and channel 1 is always on – sliding the fader down does nothing. The gain and other controls still work fine.
The weird thing is that when I move the crossfader over to the other channel, the sound for channel 1 disappears – but then slowly brings itself back up to full volume a few seconds later. All other channels work fine, and the same source works fine on other channels.
The odd behaviour is making me think it’s a software/firmware issue rather than a hardware issue like a broken fader, so I’ve tried to update the firmware – but this is proving very difficult in 2018. It requires using Java with an added extension and I’ve been able to get this working on MacOS El Capitan.
Is this an issue anybody else has encountered? Is there any way to reset the existing firmware somehow? Or any other way to update the firmware? Or does anybody know how to copy a .jar file to the Java/Extensions folder in El Capitan (my Mac is blocking every possible way I’ve tried to do it!)?
Thanks in advance.
