Have you test a different mic, or have you adjusted the pitch control for the mic.

The mute button cuts the main audio but the effects audio is still heard. What to do?


That's basically normal actually...however it depends on which aux send you're using. If you use aux 1 for the effects, you can use the pre/post switch on the master aux 1 send to switch it to pst fader....now your mute switch should kill the effects as well. Aux 2 is good to use for monitors where you don't need to return them to the mixer.

How to send effects to microphones


You CAN'T send ANYTHING to microphones since they are INPUT devices.

If you want apply effects to the audio coming FROM them then this is what you do:

Adjust the trim and faders for normal use and verify the mics are working.

NOW for those mics you want to put effects on, turn the knob labled "FX" above EACH mic FADER that you want effects on... it will be the orange topped ones... about the fourth one up ablve the PAN and the two MON knobs. Adjust these to send each mic into the effects mixing buss. Start by setting them at 12 o'clock. You will use these to proportion the amount of effects applied to individual mics.

Next, advance the FX fader/slider to around the Unity mark... this controls the amount of the FX mix buss goes into the FX processor.

Next adjust the knob above the MAIN fader that says FX to Main. This controls the amount of the FX that is sent into the MAIN mix buss...

We are almost there... Select the effect you want with the effect knob to the number of the effect you want... it will be blinking AFTER a change... the effect will NOT have changed yet... WHEN you want the effect to take effect, PRESS DOWN on the effect knob and the effect number will stop blinking and you now have the effects on those mics... ADJUST the three level things... the knbs under each channel to proportion between the mics... adjust the FX fader for the USUAL control of effect amount... and finally the FX to main knb to set the limit of the effect going to the MAINS.

I'm not satisfied with the built in effects of my PMP 5000. Can I hook up an external effect and if so,how.


Depending on whether you want the external effects to be on everything or just a single mic input, you connect them to the power amp "insert" or the insert for the mic you want it on.

Looping it out on multiple mics would be tricky, but you could send the units effects into one of the monitor outputs only by selecting a "non-effects" setting in the unit and sending internal effects to one of the monitor outs, and then looping it back into another input to join the mix.

How do get rid of echo on sound from speakers?


When you say echo, are you meaning sound coming from your mic echoing thru the speakers or a sound like your in a bathroom on all audio.

If you are referring to the mic issue, then open your volume control and make sure that MIC is muted in playback setttings

If you are refering to bathroom sound on everything , it is called a "environmental setting" and in in your sound cards software setup, like their version of the volume control or some other application they have installed for you to configure your card. Just locate the "environmental" setting and disable it / set it to none.

Mic effects


The short answer is that you'd use the multi effect (or one of the 4 mic effect) to one channel for effecting your mic input. Reverb should be added later using the single effect. You'd send the already recorded track to the send effect and then return it to another track and 'print' it using a bounce. 'Send' sends the signal to the effect and returnsit to the mix bus. So to add reverb to a track you'd send that track to the single effect after configuring the reverb effect the way you'd like it, and then make sure all of the other are turned down and record it to an open track during a bounce.
The single effect is what would be referred to as a 'send effect' and is designed to be used at mixdown or during a bounce. In the 2488 the single, aux and send effects are all 'send effects'. These take an existing sound and change it. Examples are reverb, chorus, delay, phaser and flanger. The internal effects on the 2488 can be used or external sound processors can be fed with the sends and returned to inputs on the 2488.
The 2488's multi-effect, as well as the mic x4 effects are 'insert effects' to be used on the input signal when recording. Examples of insert effects are compression, expansion, gating, limiting and distortion.
You can send all channels (or multiple channels) to the same effect send, but they all must be sent to the same effect (or chain of effects) at once. You cannot for instance send channels 1,2 and 5 to one send effect and 3 and 4 to another at once. You'd have to do something like that in two seperate operations.
Insert effects cannot be shared among channel strips. Each sound source needs its own insert effect. The 2488 has one multi-effect box which acts like an effect chain on one channel or 4 mic effects which can be assigned to 4 mic inputs at once. Each input assigned uses one of the mic effects up (a stereo pair will use 2) of the available 4.
The main thing to remember is that there are the 2 different effect types. Sends are for adding something to the signal like reverb, chorus, delay, phase shift, flange (on the 2488 these are the single effect and the aux send effects) while insert effects act on the signal modify or subtract from it (compression, gate, limiter, distortion).

Hopefully this helps. I know it can be quite confusing starting out.

Problem with Samson CO1U


Here are some instructions relayed from someone who was able to fix a similar problme with help from Samson tech support:

The C01U is a WAV device. Therefore, adjusting the slider for your default MIC input level on the volume control applet does not adjust the gain on the C01U. You access the actual volume control for the C01U as follows:

Start, Settings, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices
Click on Audio tab.

Under "Sound Recording", insure that Default Device is selected as Samson C01U.

Once Samson C01U is selected as Default Recording Device, click on the Volume button just below the name. A new window will pop up, with a vertical slider. This window will be labelled "WAVE IN", however it actually does control the MIC volume for the C01U.

The key here seems to be that the USB device that represents the Microphone input (as far as Windows is concerned) is not a traditional microphone, but (as mentioned above) a WAV-IN device.
