Question about Music

1 Answer

Fender passport, 4 channel model. If pluged multiple instruments at once, like guitars and piano, the one who presses his keys or strings with more force then the other band member, mutes all other ch

Channel one mutes (dims) all the other channels, when guitar or some other instrument is played with force (forte). The same thing if I plug in some music as a background. As soon as I start playing some live instrument and try to jam, the music disappears, fades out in 1 sec, and as soon as I stop playing live instrument the music fades back in. It is like one signal is choking another. Please help with info what needs to be replaced since the repairman in Croatia have no clue what I am talking about

There is a Priority Switch. It allows the first channel over ride the rest. The circuit is called a ducker/.

SOURCE: LOW VOLUME FROM RIGHT CHANNEL OF STEREO 1 SIDE OF SYSTEM

It seems like the speaker jack tip needs cleaning, or the contact has become bent away from the connector and needs to be re-aligned.  The Passport is a portable system, so after years of plugging and unplugging the speaker jacks may be worn.  Try using the "Stereo 2" connectors. You can also try cleaning the jack with electrical contact cleaner, and. a cotton swab.

SOURCE: Problems setting midi channels using KN3000 and Cubase

If you are sequencing midi tracks you can imbed the patch change in the track and the midi channel assignment and when the sequence plays the info will be sent to the keyboard. Do you have it set to receive Omni?

SOURCE: APX900: Feedback at seemingly normal

Make sure the passport speakers are NOT where the guitar can hear them... they need to be toward the audience from where you are. Also do NOT boost the high end frequencies with the EQ. That guitar probably has a hot pickup subject to ambient sound. Beyond this, you might have to use one of the feedback destroyers. If you are using monitors, take the guitar out of them.

SOURCE: My Fender Hot Rod deluxe makes a popping noise when switching back to the clean channel.

This is because your clean channel only runs through the pre-amp section, requiring an increased volume level to match that of the volume of the drive section which is overdriven by the pre-amp circuit. my suggestion is to use lower volume level on the clean channel of the amp. To get any volume boost you may need to match the two channels you could use a signal/volume booster or overdrive pedal between your guitar and amp input, switching it off and back on when you switch back and forth between channels.

Turn down the VIP knob and try it. This is on channel 1 for announcement voice overs overriding everything. It has a threshhold setting for adjusting that. Here is the manual for it.

Owners manual for fender dg 22 ce guitar


Go to Fender's site and see: http://intl.fender.com/en-CA/support/articles/?section=articles&search=maintenance. There are other articles that can add up to a manual, but a manual isn't usually part of an acoustic's "case candy". There just isn't much difference between one acoustic and another in form and function.

Is he tuner supposed to light up green when the string is correctly tuned?


Before turning the unit on, press and hold down the calib/batt switch to check the condition of the battery on the battery meter.

Then either plug in your electric guitar to the input side of the AG-6 or if tuning an acoustic guitar without electronics placing the AG-6 near the front of the guitar should work. You will not need to press a button to select which string you are about to tune. The AG-6 will detect it and the corresponding light will turn on when it is tuned within range.

Turn on the AG-6 and start by striking the low E (thickest) string while open. This is the number 6 string or 6E. Slowly turn the guitars low E tuning key untill the red LED below the 6E marking on the AG-6 lights up. Continue stricking the open string and turning the key untill the needle centers on zero and the 6E light remains on.

Repeat this for the open A string untill the 5A light turns on and the needle centers on zero.

Repeat for the remaining four strings, 4D 3G 2B and 1E, being careful not to over tighten and break them.

Tip: It may be a good idea once the low E string is tuned, to tune the rest manually, especially new strings or strings way out of tune. Then tune again using the AG-6 tuner.
.
If installing fresh strings you will probably need to stretch each string and re-tune, possibly several times, before they hold their tuning.

P 150 system fails when 2 or more inputs are used at once


If you have an owners manual make note that channel one has a VIP feature with a control. This feature makes channel one override the other channels and is used for voice over announcements. The manual explains how to use the threshold control to set this. It can be downloaded at Fender.com/support.
