Shure KSM9 anyone?

jdbassentertainment.com ·
Hi everyone, does anyone have any experience with this mic. I currently own the Shure Beta 87a, Beta 58a, 55 Deluxe, EV N/D 767a and Heil PR20 mics... I am looking to possibly add a premium vocal mic. I am thinking about adding one of these to my tool box (if it's worth it). Would I gain anything compared to the vocal mics I have so far? How is it on a loud stage? - If I get one I am thinking about getting the HS version... Hyper/Sub - Cardioid Any input on the Shure KSM9 would be greatly...

T1 Channel 2 stopped working

scottcald ·
I have a T1 I use for band rehearsals, sometimes gigs. We can put the 2 vocals and 2 guitars through it. Then I use the Aux out to one Compact and the Main out to another Compact. Yesterday, I went to set all of it up and channel 2 didn't work at all. All the other channels worked. I had a mic plugged into it. I've plugged the mic into other channels and the mic works, plugged other stuff into the channel (XLR and 1/4") and recalled the Factory Settings all to no avail. I don't even see...

Any ideas for neat cabling?

ScubaBadger ·
Hi I'm using an L1 MKII with Tonematch - the Tonematch and an iPad for my music content fastened to my mic stand. The consequent cables (including mic / audio feed from iPad to Tonematch / and Tonematch to powerbase feed can sometimes look at bit hairy. Does anyone have any good ideas as to how to minimise the visual impact of these in a simple manner? Is there a "down the mic stand "flexi something" to feed the cables or specific cables that make routing easier / better? Thanks.

I watched the setting of trim for mics, (thank you) but I need help in what do I select for microphone in the engine. My microphone is not listed. I do not understand the High Gain: Bright, Normal and how I might use them (if at all) or why I would choose Flat, Vocal zEQ? Is there a download for my microphone? I am singer/songwriter playing small live venues...just as soon as I leave my living room :)

T1/T4S Tonematch or TC Helicon Mic Mechanic 2 ?

Rockin'Robin ·
Hi guys, I am asking recommendation on these 2 units from people who tried them. I am a singer/guitarist, own a S1 Pro and use it for live gigs and for busking outside. I am looking at the best option that could fit both venues. For Busking, I could go away with the S1 Pro alone if it weren't for its ugly reverb. Especially on the vocals you need some reverb to sound good in open spaces. Thus I've been looking at the Mic Mechanic 2 from TC Helicon, which seemingly has a nice reverb plus...

L1 with a condenser mic

Ray 6 ·
We have a small gospel group that plays small venues in churches, nursing homes, community centers, etc. We have 5 band members and rather than carry a bevy of mics and a mixer board, we use a Condenser mic for the group.. so we have just the mic and the L1 to set up, quick and easy. And, with instruments, the L1 and single mic make for enough to carry in and work well in the small spaces. The sound for the audience is great, but the L1 has to be "in front" of the mic in order to avoid...

Using the mic channel on my Compact while still using the T1

DR. Roadkill ·
i just got my L1 Compact and decided to go ahead and invest in the T1 (for $299 how could I not?!) the down fall of the T1 for me is the lack of channels. Two part question: 1: can I use the mic channel on the L1 in coordination with the T1? I realize that I would have to adjust the levels for the "extra" mic at the L1 base but would it interfere with the operation of the T1 or L1 Compact performance. 2: can I use a mini xlr mixer with independent level controls per channel and connect to...

Mics and other gear I use with the L1 Compact

I have dozens of SM57's and SM58's for those that prefer them. My personal preferences are the Sennheiser E935 and Heil PR35, as they have superior frequency bandwidth, superior gain before feedback and mostly because I despise eating a microphone. My vocals have been described as a cross between Johnny Cash, , Mike Pinera, Tom Jones, Don Ho and Vicente Fernandez and all acoustically non-enhanced. Soft female vocals also work better with the Senneiser E935 and Heil PR35. One's lips can be up...

Mic feedback

SteveW ·
We are a duo of guitar and bass, both sing and we use backing tracks. We have been using some floor monitors to better be able to hear the backing tracks. These are powered monitors one of which is a Bose S1. Both are fed/looped out of the L1 main 1/4" output. I've also tried a mic stand mounted monitor. We're both using Sure SM58's but are having great difficulty with mic feed back. We try the usual; reduce treble and volume, reposition the monitors, move the L1 compact back further.

Using L1 For Vocals Only - 4 Mics

KenDawg1 ·
Hi - we are a band. We have three guitars, bass, drums and keyboards. We use the L1 for 4 vocal inputs only and match amp levels to the drums and L1. We like it very much. It keeps us from playing too loud in a smaller space. However, since we have 4 mics we use 2 T1's . The second is plugged in 4/5 of the first T1. First of all - is that the best (preferred or most balanced) input scheme for 4 mic for vocals? Also, sometimes we have to increase the volume of the L1 and we are having...

Party Mode - Do mics transmit to the 2nd S1?

djharryg ·
I use the bluetooth option to play music into the S1. I also have a mic plugged into the S1. If I go into "party mode" on the app and get another S1, will the "microphone" plugged into the first S1 transmit to the 2nd S1 as well? I essentially want to plug a mic into an S1 and have the sound from that mic coming out of the S1 "and" another S1 that is farther away. I don't want to simply put two S1's on one stand and daisy chain them with a cable. I need much wider coverage.

hello it depends on capsule, You use. A Headset with almost 360° is more liable to feedbacks than a hyper-cardiodid Mic. May be a higher distance to the Array will reduce the feedbacks

Thank you for the information. I just bought a Shure PGA31. I hope that will help. I've tried moving the L1C. It is really odd because it happens more with one presenter than others. I tried turning down the tone but it got very basey. Oh the mic in this case is only used for speaking. When I used a corded mic for singing -- no problems! Again, thank you for the information.

Hi LowG, thanks for the information regarding the microphone. Is this the one we're talking about? http://cdn.shure.com/specifica...cification_Sheet.pdf If so I've had a look at the specs for it. The polar pattern is cardioid (they say it's unidirectional but the cardioid pattern will probably not be able to reject enough of the signal from the loudspeaker to be feedback free when standing in front of it.

Hi LowG, I run a hire company where we use the Compacts & L1 Model 2's a lot.

A couple of things I can suggest: -The Shure WH20 is the dynamic version of that type of headset.
