Question about Magic Sing Along Consumer Microphone
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
