Hi Diggerbarnz,

I had the best results with the VoiceLive 3 when I used the automatic gain staging on the VoiceLive 3 first, and then I set the output to microphone level.

Then on the T1® I set the trim so that even at my loudest, I was never seeing more than a flicker or yellow and never red.

As for Presets - I did NOT use a microphone preset on the T1®. When I did, I had a greater tendency to get feedback.

Does that help?

Hi diggerbarnz,

Thanks for the update. The autogain setting worked fine for me - basically, I let it set the input sensitivity and then it stored that until I changed it (for a different microphone). I didn't find that once stored, that the autogain changed itself. Is that what you mean?

Maybe we're talking about a different feature.

Anyway - have you seen this new firmware update beta?

I don't use the TC Helicon voicelive 3, but instead I use the Digitech VOcalist Live 3. And there are times at certain venues that I do still get feedback, even though I don't position my mic in front of the speaker, but off to the side (helps to offput some of the feedback I get).
Would the same concept apply to my set up as well where you suggest that I DONT use a microphone preset? I do like the tone I get when I use a mic preset, but I would like to be able to maintain the tone without the feedback issues I seem to get when its necessary to increase the volume
Hi ravenrain13,

Thank you for joining the Forum.

I think you're fine to use a T1® microphone preset.

I just read through the Manual for the Digitech Vocalist Live 3.

I didn't see anything that would have me turn off the microphone preset in the T1®. The Digitech Vocalist Live 3 does not appear to have any form of automatic tone settings to optimize the vocal microphone like the TC-Helicon products.

Here are some notes to consider regarding feedback.

See: Microphone Feedback in the wiki.

Does that help?
Thanks for the information for my Digitech vocalizer. I've tried all the things for the mic feedback and it seems to be my mic, which is a supercardioid and not a hypercardioid. (Sennheiser e845). My Bose doesn't seem to be as sensitive when I use a Shure sm58 or my Audix OM5. I will keep experimenting though as I really like my Sennheiser mic.
Hi ravenrain13,

There's a video on the Sennheiser site.
Sennheiser e845

At about 1:00 they show that the pickup pattern is highly directional at the front of the microphone and also - there is a lobe of sensitivity at the back. They call it a bunny tail.

Do you have anything in your stage setup that could be causing the sound of your L1® to be bouncing back into the bunny tail?
I'm still up & down w/feedback -but am tweakin away - practicing ringing things out on T1...picked up an E835 mic which really makes sure 58 seem...weak - Still have my sure 55shII which I'll be upgrading cartridge on - @ times I've had the NEW model II system up full ( on mixer) & NO feed w/a 1 part harmony engaged - then the next day, same patch & she's feeding back - update:cut harmony voices to -6db, seems better
