I bought a GXL2200 and i cant hear my vocals.

When its hooked up to my lexicon interface ...my levels are really low.On playback mode all i hear is distortion around my vocals.Is this a damaged product? The GXL1200 came with it and it sounds great way better than other mic.When i opened the product it had a couple dents on the screen should i just send it back?

The GXL 2200 is a condensor microphone. It needs Phantom power to operate, and get the correct levels for recording. Your lexicon interface should have a button/switch that says +48V phantom power, or something similar. This needs to be enabled before the GXL 2200 will work.

    So does the 1200 that came with it, and it is working fine. Try reading the question thouroughly before answering.

Lexicon alpha and gxl2200 microphone


Are you trying to use the mic input on the back or plugging it into the instrument input on the front? If you use a low impedance mic with a quarter inch instrument input cord, you would need a transformer adapter to make the mic work on high impedance. Even if you put it on line in, you would still have to convert it. Only the XLR socket on the back will work on a low impedance mic.

I have an Omega/Lambda/Lexicon and the vocals seemed to be delayed with the timing established by the instruments. Any ideas of what to do?


Without the configuration you are using we have little to go on. How is the system wired? Are you saying when you run instruments AND mics into this then record they do not play back together? If the instruments are MIDI types and you play back along with the vocals I would expect the MIDI instruments to be delayed a little as it takes time to transmit the note info at 31.25Kb... It takes about 1/3000 second for EACH MIDI character and note messages take three of those for a total of about 1 ms. One millisecond IS noticeable by the ear... and if you have several instruments it may take several milliseconds to service all the instruments. If you are recording ANALOG instruments the delay should be imperceptible.

When u export the track down too a wav.form and i convert it too mp3. if i listen too it in headphones i can only hear the vocals in the right earbud.


Well, did you run the vocals through a mixer and send to BOTH channels of the Lexicon Alpha? If you connect the mic to only one channel you will only get one channel UNLESS you process the .wav file and PAN the vocal channel into both channels when outputing to your MP3.

How do you control the signal coming back from a reverb etc.


The FX connection sounds correct:
To control the fx you need the FX send and return Faders up, and turn up the FX pot on the channels u wish to add FX too.

Compressors can be used in many ways, for system protection, instrument processing, and for containing vocals:
How you connect them to your system depends on what your wanting to compress. If you tell me what you are using it for i could recommend the best option to suit you. e.g vocals FOH / FB- 1 singer 2 singers, Instrument Gating/comp. let me know for more detail??

The most common connection is to insert the compressor over the individual channels you wish to compress using insert leads.

Lets presume your tyring to compress more than 2 channels:
for example- you have a female singer that is mainly soft but hits some really belting notes every now and then, you want to compress her vocal so that the volume in the speakers does not increase as significantly with the loud notes.
Lets say she is in channel 1, you want to send channel 1 to group 1(or 1&2 if they are not individually assignable) and don't send it to ST(stereo).(same settings for any other channels you want to compress)

Connect the compressor via Insert leads to the group inserts.

Assign the group to the Stereo outputs (the group fader now acts as a sub-master for the vocal and will need to be up to hear the vocals)

- If you havn't got insert leads you can also take the group output and plug into the compressor, out of the compressor- into a stereo channel that is assigned to ST. and leave that channel up as well.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Another common connection for a compressor is:
Take the main L&R outputs- plug into the compressor, out of the compressor- plug into Amplifier L&R. This compresses the whole lot and may not be ideal for instruments and CD playback. This option is purely for system protection.

I hope you can make sense of this.
If not- i can provide more detail if you wish.

Goodluck

Vocal effects on Tascam 2488 MK 2 portable studio


Hi again,

The easiest way to record using an external Lexicon effects unit (without an external mixer) is to connect your mic onto one of the 2488's inputs and assign that input to a channel strip (track). You should have the 2488 sends (output) going to the Lexicon's inputs. Then connect the Lexicon outputs back into another set of inputs on your 2488 and assign those inputs to two empty channel strips (tracks).

Then you will have to take that channel that has your mic input assigned to it and press send and set the levels there to send the signal out the sends (to the Lexicon).
Now you have a channel strip assigned to the mic input which contains your dry signal, and you have the two inputs returning from the Lexicon which contains your wet or effected signal.
You then have some options. You can control the amount of effected signal you hear while recording by adjusting the faders of the two wet tracks and you can either record the dry signal or the wet signal (or both) onto separate tracks.

Typically when recording the singer will want to hear an effect (say reverb) on his voice, but the engineer wants to record only the dry track at recording time (because effects can always be added later, but they can't be taken out). To accomplish this you would use the setup above, but only arm the mic input track for recording. In this way the singer hears the reverb, but only the dry vocals get recorded and the engineer can add reverb to that track again later as desired (and mix it back with the dry vocal etc).

On the other hand if you want to record only the effected signal you would simply arm the two channels to which the inputs coming back from your Lexicon are assigned for recording. This will get you a recording of the effected signal only.
Hope this helps you do what you are trying to do.

Cheers.

bd.
