Hi Apple,

Let's level out the volume levels for the music from the iPad and iPod.  This assumes you have the output of the iPad and iPod at about 80% (three taps down from maximum volume).

These are all one-time steps.

  1. Press the channel 2 CHEDIT button
  2. Turn the Rotary Selector to COMP/GATE
  3. Under the display, turn the Type button so you can see the menu
  4. Select Limiter
  5. Set the Thresh to -10.0dB
  6. Leave Gain at 0.0db
  7. Press the channel 3 CHEDIT button
  8. Under the display, turn the Type button so you can see the menu
  9. Select Limiter
  10. Set the Thresh to -10.0dB
  11. Leave Gain at 0.0db


If you need more aggressive throttling of loud tracks, set try setting the Thresh to -20.0 dB.

Now we'll set channel 1 to automatically mute the microphone when you are not speaking directly into it. This prevents amplifying background noise or casual comments you had not intended to amplify.

  1. Press the channel CHEDIT
  2. Turn the Rotary Selector to COMP/GATE
  3. Under the display, turn the Type button so you can see the menu
  4. Select Noise Gate
  5. Set the Thresh to -40.0dB
    • If you find this cuts off the microphone even while you are speaking directly into the microphone try setting the Thresh to -50.0dB
  6. Leave Ramp / Speed at 50%

That should get you going.

When is the next competition?
