Make sure the frequency of your system is still usable. The FCC has changed the spectrum used by wireless mic's and you may not be able to control intereference form other users.

SOURCE: My Samson Airline UHF wireless kit is not working.

Make sure you are using ALKALINE batteries... rechargeables have lower voltage that does not work with a lot of these devices... Often the batteries are marked with the voltage they are intended to replace rather than their actual voltage. NiCad batteries only produce 1.25 volts and that is under what is required. The device will come on and immediately go off.

I'm experiencing humming/hissing when my Pocket POD is plugged in. The humming/hissing gets increasingly louder when higher gain and/or volume settings are selected. I've had this device for just...


Welcome to Fixya. It seems that there is a static on the device when it receives power. You can try to use a different power cable and see if that is the cause of the issue or the problem is caused bya bad system board of the device. This can be a hardware issue but we need to verify it first by doing the steps below.

Thanks for using Fixya

Not enough sound, im using a pmp 3000 with rhino rh2112 250 watt speakers its up at max and struggling badly at very small venues

The speakers would receive about 250 watts max each from the PMP3000 since they are 8 ohms.
That is quite a bit and should fill a 1000 square foot venue with plenty of sound. The type of program material will affect what sound level you can get to. I would recommend you procure a sound meter and measure the sound level. You should be able to get 90 to 95 DB out of these easily. I use a PMP 3000 with two Peavey 15 inch with horn cabinets and can get 98 DB in a 30 by 40 foot room easily. You need to respect the OSHA sound level limits and a sound meter will help you comply. The 12 inch speakers would probably be too small if you are running a lot of bass through them. Please read my tip on Fixya regarding a hazard of the PMP mixers. Essentially, when using 1/4 inch adapters or plugs from the speakon connections of the PMP's, channel A sleeve or barrel is the hot whereas the tip of channel B is the hot. This is not documented in the user manual and if you inadvertenly ground the sleeve of channel A you will likely blow the amp.

I've had the Tonebone Plexitube since January of this year, but have only played through it a couple of times. I recently took it out to really experiment with it and get to know the pedal. Right away...

It sounds like somehow the pre-gain is very high while the volume or post-gain is very low. Try turning the volume high on the effects unit and the gain low, and don't have the amp volume too low either.

HISS from Numark DM1200 mixer. Not present in speakers (self powered) when mixer off. Using XLR cables with telescoping ground lifts on each line. Monster 3500 power filter. Ideas?

All interconnected equipment MUST be powered from the same receptacle or source. The XLR to the speakers should NOT have ground lift. The power for the mixer should come from where the speakers are and be routed alongside the XLR cables. All the other connected items should also be powered by the same source. The ground bounce within a building cannot only cause noise, but can rupture the input circuits of equipment. As an electrical engineer I don't know why manuals supplied with the equipment doesn't go into this more. The professionals at the big venues all know this as they have had to pay to get equipment repaired.

Now to get down to "hiss" once you get the other stuff straightened out, there are two things to know at the start: The first is that due to the statistical nature in electronics "noise and hiss" are among the laws of physics that we can't completely get around. The level of the hiss should NOT be objectionable however. The second thing is that proper level setup is important to minimize the effects of noise and hiss. You should be sending the levels to the powered speakers at near full line level into the line inouts, never mic inputs that some have. Using excess gain at the speakers will amplify any noise pickup on your audio lines. Next, at the mixer, try to keep all the level controls around 10 to 2 0'clock for rotaries and 70% for faders. Excess gain at certain stages will cause hiss to be objectionable.

All it does is hiss.. sounds like a ground problem cant tell

Make sure the transmitte and receiver are on same channel. Often people get systems that are mis-matched and cannot work together. Also, use ONLY alkaline batteries in the transmitter... rechargeables quickly fail. The hiss is typical of electronics when no signal is present.

I record a podcast with the 8track multimix usb Alesis. I use one XLR - Jack input and the rest XLR-XLR. There are 4 inputs being used in total. I seem to be getting alot of hiss and buzzing from the...

What is the source of the input signals? These need to be balanced lines and the sources need to be balanced. If you happen to be using condenser mics, you probably haven't turned on the Phantom Power in the mixer. If you are recording from a sound card in the PC, those have a lot of noise and are unbalanced and you have to use DI's with ground lift ahead of this mixer.

Korg pa800 mic input makes funny noise

First turn the unit off then rotate the input level volume control. If it feels loose pull up lightly on it as you do this. Also rotate all your controls that you don't normally use a lot. Chances are the pots are dirty. If that doesn't help you might want to check all the connectors inside the unit if you feel confident enough to go poking around. Other wise I suggest that you find a shop that will fix the problem. If you do go poking around make sure the units unplugged and that you have grounded yourself against static discharges.
