Connecting my new samsung blu-ray player (bd-fm57c) to my toshiba theaterview tv.


I don't think that cord will work. HDMI carries video and audio signals, you might get video but probably no sound. You might as well try anyway though so here goes... The red green and blue plugs are your video and the other red plug and the white plug is for stereo sound. The yellow plug is just a lower quality video plug. So plug in the red blue and green plugs into the component video inputs on the TV then the red and white plugs into the audio inputs. DON'T plug in the yellow plug. If this doesn't work go to your local home theater store and ask for a receiver or switcher that will downscale high def HDMI to component video and stereo audio. You can probably pick up a cheap one for around $100. Good luck!

Mic not working on toshiba a665 laptop; hisses


Get rid of all possible noise in your recording space. Pick the least noisy area to record in. Turn off any fans, heaters, air conditioners and other nonessential devices. Even an extra laptop or idle gaming console makes noise, so if you're not using it, shut it off. Close the doors and shut the windows. Place your microphone away from any remaining noise sources, including power sources. Don't record next to a window, even if it's closed. Remember that your computer makes noise, too. Even sounds your ear can't hear will become noticeable once you amplify your recording. Finally, turn off any cellphones. GSM buzz can be picked up in your recording, so do not set the phone to vibrate. Turn it completely off. Get as close to the mic as possible. Positioning for tonality and comfort has to be taken into consideration, but beyond that you simply want to get as close as you can. The closer the microphone is to the audio source, the less background noise will show up in the recording. Turning up your source will accomplish a similar effect. Simply speak louder, or if you're recording an electric instrument, turn up the volume. If your levels start clipping, bring the volume down on the mixer. Tweak the EQ. After your audio is recorded, you can often eliminate noticeable buzz or hiss using the equalizer. If your mixer has equalizer presets, try playing with those before you start recording to see what bands you can turn down to diminish noise. If you're mixing digitally, you can record the audio straight in without any EQ and apply one during the editing process. Finding the right equalizer band to mix down is often a process of trial and error. If it's a hissing sound, it's going to be in the higher spectrum. If it's a buzzing sound, it's probably coming from the mid to lower spectrum. A graphic equalizer is a great mechanism to form a valley in the EQ and move it around until the noise is reduced. Use a speech enhancer plugin. Any good mixing program has one; even something as simple as Apple's GarageBand can do the trick. Or, try searching the Internet for a third-party plugin. The speech enhancer will let you apply some quick tone settings to make a speaking voice sound more professional. More importantly, it will give you the option to dial back the more quiet sounds in a recording. This will help isolate the vocal and push everything out. While this type of plug-in is meant for spoken audio, it can be used -- with mixed results -- on any kind of audio. Know your noise gate. The noise gate is your key to absolutely silent pauses and crystal clean audio. The gate takes out all noises under a certain level and turns them down however much you tell it to. If you find that your desirable audio never gets any quieter than -20dB, you can tell your noise gate to turn the recording down any time audio is not exceeding -25dB. You can even tell it how much to turn it down: all the way for a clean recording, or maybe just a little to allow some natural hiss in. The noise gate appears easy enough on the outside, but can be a little complicated to master. If your settings are too high, you will clip out parts of your recording, making it obnoxiously unlistenable

Dear crane_editor,
For broadcasting the video signal coming from the V-8 over the internet you need to have a computer that is equipped with a composite or S-Video input card. Additionally you might need an audio input as well with the possibility to delay the audio to have a live stream with lipsync audio and video.
Roland has launched a new product recently which is actually designed for live streaming applicatons like this. It's called VR-5 AV Mixer & Recorder. This device has a USB streaming output for easy connecting with a computer. The computer will recognize the VR-5 as a USB audio/video class device (like a webcam) so your setup is ready in minutes.
Further the VR-5 is equipped with an audio mixer (with delay for lip sync), built-in preview screens with touch select, PC VGA input, media player and AV recorder (SD card).
Probably the VR-5 covers all of your needs, without the hassle of difficult configuration of all kinds of separate devices.
Kind regards,
Kees

You MAY be overdriving the sound card. Near flat should work for vocal, but setting the levels throughout the mixer is important as well as the sound card. You can use the LOW CUT to reduce hum if you have noisy system. Describing balancing the levels is more than I can do here. There are many good videos about mixer setup on YouTube.com. You cannot "fix" problems created by improper levels and noise injected into the system using the EQ.
What is important is to see that all gain controls and faders are around mid range to 70% when operating normally. You should be using BALANCED lines everywhere possible either XLR or TRS cables. ALL interconnected equipment should be powered from the same receptacle or power source INCLUDING all amps and powered speakers. Often users use unbalanced lines from mixers to sound boards and pick up noise or they have the levels set wrong between the mixer and sound board resulting in clipping and distortion or poor signal-to-noise ratio.

I have a mackie 24 channel mixer , I am trying to hook up my monitors. I need help I don't know how to do it. Recently lost our sound tech guy here at the church.


Decide if you want to use the AUX's or the SUB's for your monitors. (usually use the AUX).

Connect TRS cables from the appropriate AUX sends to thee amplifiers you use for your monitors or your powered monitors whichever you have.

Adjust the level using the AUX level controls for each channel to set your minitor mix.

Normally use the PreFader AUX's so monitor levels are set independent of the slide fader positions.

Here is a big hint for you: Search YouTube.com for "Soundboard" or "Soundboard setup". There are good videos there that might be different than your particular board, but there is enough commonality that you will soon be an expert!

I dont have sound on my laptop


A general case might be to take the stereo headphone output of the laptop and feed it a set of left and right line level (not microphone level) inputs to the soundboard. Radio Shack sells a cable that has a typical mini stereo headphone plug on one end and a pair of RCA Phono plugs on the other end. If the soundboard does not have phono jack inputs you will need some type of adapter plug on the ends of the cable phono plugs to match the soundboard's connector.

You then experiment with the laptop's volume control setting (start low) and the soundboard's input level control to get undistorted sound with minimum noise and hum. If you can not get rid of the hum, you probably need to add a ground loop isolation box (also available from Radio Shack, I believe) to reduce or eliminate the hum. __________________

Hi, first get a battery and a wire to comfirm if the speakers are still working.
If the speakers work that means one of your connecting cables is bad and it needs to be replaced.

You can just do a general troubleshooting of all the cable for connecting.

Good luck.

how many audio input does your cinemate have? in case you only have one, you need an audio video switcher. a sample picture of what you need is on this link > http://electronicsusa.com/svs14.html find what you need, that is just for you to see what its look like. another thing is check you dvd if it has a line input - meaning it allows you to connect another source into your dvd such as vhs, cd, mp3. for for audio video - you need 3 wires (video/audio left-right), for stereo audio - 2 wires (left/right connection). some dvd player call it as line1 and line2 inputs. if you have it then you should be ok. 3rd approach, a simple audio mixer with minimum 3 inputs and 1 ouput is enough. note: last thing, check your connection interface for connection compatibility if you plan to buy audio video switcher or audio mixer. hope this help. regards, cebuwano

Yes, you have to connect the monitor outs to a mixer (or directly to your monitors) to hear. It is a totally separate sound card than what is coming out of your audio out port. Anyway, you'll get much better sound quality from the monitor outs.

Getting clear audio to televisions from a soundboard


I think you should buy a video sender. It will take audio from your audio console and send wireless to a free channel to any free TV channel. No cables!
