Question about Magic Sing Along Consumer Microphone

Distortion within a certain frequency range for wireless mics on magic sing 11000

We get this bubbly distorted sound from the speakers on the wireless mics during singing, we have two of these mics and they both do it. It most typically occurs in the higher vocal frequencies, high alto range. It happens more to female singers than male.

I've tried to adjust system volume, music volume and mic volume. Currently we have the mics set at about 4 or 5, and the music volume is higher but balanced, and then the system speaker is higher to compensate for the low mic volume and that seems to reduce the problem, but it still occurs sometimes. It seems as if the mics are extremely sensitive, or that extreme sibilance occurs within a certain vocal frequency range, causing this distortion. Has anyone else reported this, is there anything that can be done?

We had to send both mics back to the manufacturer when we first got them, because they only worked within about 7 feet of the unit. That problem got fixed, but since then we have been having this issue.

Would a simple windscreen fix it? I'm at a loss on how else to fix this, short of sending it back to be checked again and having to pay shipping both ways like we did the first time.

Because of the very wide dynamic range of the human voice, specially when singing, the microphone you use, needs to be smart(usually expensive) to do the job properly. When going cordless, the electronics needs to be even smarter. A windscreen will not solve the problem.
I do not know of ANY low-cost radio mic that would not frustrate you for ever and a day. Rather spend a little more and be happy.
If allowed, I can introduce you to a very budget tipe entry level radio mic, that would work much better: Beyerdynamic OPUS 168 mk2 This mic works on a diversity UHF frequancy that receives a very clear signal for at least 100 feet. It also works with a "compander" , that improves the dynamic range. You will propably pay about $300 for it, but it will last lots of years with much less frustations. Sorry, there is no inexpensive way out on this one. PA Master

Distortion on vocal reproduction on Vocalist Live 2. Even with input volume down to minimum a loud vocal performance produces distortion on single voice and harmony output.


You need to check the actual signal levels to make sure they are within the specs for the unit. The mic input is low impedance. Your mic should be like a Shure SM58 or equivalent. The output is fairly high... up to +14DB which will require you to turn down the trims on a mixer this runs into or set a -20Db pad at the input. I suspect your distortion is from the device output to the mixer input. It is VERY important that the mic does NOT "hear" the speakers as the feedback loop resulting will be mass distortion. The guitar should also not "hear" the mains.

Distorted sound from new Dell desktop


1. In most cases the problem maybe due to the powersupply. If the filter capacitor or the diodes are not working properly in the power supply, it could give the distortion sound. Use a different powersupply to see if it solves the problem.
2. The mic wire can also catch some hissing noise sometimes. Disconnect the mic wire from the motherboard and see if it solves the problem.

Thanks

Amplifier Power & Speakers


It's a common misconception that a high-powered amplifier will hurt a speaker when the opposite is more true.

Power ratings are specified within certain parameters at or below certain distortion levels. The problem with UNDER-powered amplifiers is that when they reach for the loudness beyond their clean capabilities they get really dirty and start to distort their output. Distortion will kill even a good speaker faster than a loud clean signal will. Stronger amps run more within their comfort zones and rarely strain for more than brief periods.

In no case should you ever try to do like Spinal Tap in their Mockumentary and turn the volume to '11'. ;-)

The HK's are fine. Speakers are a matter of (mostly) personal preference while amps running within their design limitation don't really sound different so go try out some speakers, see if they'll let you audition them at home and have some fun.

There are several causes of distortion in an audio setup.

1) Speaker is unable to handle the frequency that it's being fed
2) The volume is too high for the speaker to handle
3) The amp can't provide enough power to drive the speaker adequately.

Either way distortion is BAD & best to be avoided unless you want an excuse to buy a new set of speakers :P
