Yes I have this exact problem myself. Work for nightclub and our original Shure wireless was fine and we replaced it with an slx. We have MCs that really yell into the mic. I'm gonna try and find an older 58 capsule to pit on it and see how that goes. The mic would probally be fine with normal singers.

How to setup a vocals


Turn gain CCW. plug microphone in, mute the channel. turn gain CW until peak LED flashes (while singing loud!) and turn gain back a little bit.
Take the channel fader down, unmute the channel. Put masters at 0dB (near maximum) and adjust the loudness with the channel fader to what you like.
EQ: it always depends on your location. Keep it flat. You might like to reduce at about 200-300 Hz. Cut the low end (Hi Pass Filter = on) or if no HiPass reduce "bass" for about 6...10dB.
ok?

My Shure mics work fine but two bodypacks are not working. Are there fixable parts in there?


Try switching mic's with known good system. The small diameter cable going to headset and lav mic's are easily damaged. If the mic feeding the bodypack is good, fresh battery, mute disengaged and channels set properly then it's Shure factory service time.

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.

I use a sE2200a and a BLUE icicle preamp for basic vocal recording. My problem is that the kind of work I do requires quite a bit of loud, sometimes even yelling recordings. But no matter what I do, I...


You can pad down the mic some more with a shure in line mic pad, from your local audio store, this will fix the problem, the mic is putting out too much level for the rest of your rig.

Thanks for using FixYA

HOW DO I TAKE THE DISTORTION OUT OF MY PC MICROPHONE THAT IS BUILT INTO MY MONITOR?


Right-click the speaker icon in the right side of the taskbar on the bottom of the screen. Select Audio properties - on the Mic section there should be a checkbox with -10db or something simular there, check that box to see if your microphone performance improves. You can also lower the slider if still less amplification is desired. Built-in mic's are of the lowest quality, and the default amplification setting can be much too high depending on your mic's sensitivity, which will cause extreme distortion. I typically only use them if my main mic fails or is unavailable.

Switch on MXL 2003


- bass cuttoff does not allow bass frequencies to pass. This is useful to block unnecessary sounds from being recorded, since there is not much intelligible human voice content in the bass range. Cutting off the bass will minimize the sound of thuds, bumps, breath pops, etc.

- -10dB lowers the signal output of the mic by 10 decibels. This is useful when recording very loud instruments that would otherwise clip some gain stages

DISTORTION


1) if you are using the PC sound card to record this is where your hiss is coming from. you need to get a recording card that has low noise or some other recording USB input device to get CD quality recordings

OR

2) if you have to use your PC sound card check your PC volume level for line in, don't let it get high or it will distort. you will have to experiment with the MD4 levels and PC sound card level to find a good middle ground with low hiss and no distortion
and a singer that sings away from the mic to reduce distortion.


hope this helps
thanks for your rating
