You have several questions here and I'll do my best to help. While I'm not familiar with the "Bose" system I am performer that uses effects, mixers and etc. so....
1. Best effects to use. I would choose a small amount of guitar chorus and maybe a short digital echo, this is totally a matter of your choice, but in my experiecne, use as little as possible, you don't want to muddy up your sound
2. If your getting clipping, you have to much gain coming in, if you can you might try changing the settings on the "compressor" if you have such adjustments., or just turn down the output from your effects box a bit.
3. You didn't say what kind of mixer you are using, but typically your best off running your mic through the mixer, run the output of the mixer into a channel on the bose that has the graphic eq set to 0 or "flat", use the mixer to control treble, middle and bass rather than the bose amp.
4. Variation in volume of your backing tracks is an issue that you need to take care of before you play out. When you record your tracks, you need to either use equipmennt that will make the levels all the same, or sit with the system while it records and control the volume (with a mixer) as they are recorded, nothing ruins a performance more than profound changes in volume that override or dimish your main performant, (e.g. your vocals or lead riffs)
Let me know if you have further questions. good luck and Keep on Rockin

I have a Peavey XR 8600 PA, I have tried adding an external vocal effects module into a mic line but it drops the output volume of the entire PA by about 75%. Any ideas why this is?


Well, I would say it isn't dropping the level of "the whole pa", it is just dropping the level of the input you have plugged the fx into. Check the settings on your fx unit, there are usually input, output and mix controls that are independant of "the pa" and affect the amplitude of the signal going into your mixer from the fx unit.

Background noise on vocal track


There is no doubt that sound on PCs and laptops can be a pain, and I have had to run a mixer output through the mic socket before now, such is the insensitivity of the PC's inputs. But you have done this, which implies that the mic input is not being connected to the sound system. You should have some controls of the way the sound is connected - try the Control Panel (assuming you have Windows) and opening up the sound applet. You won't get anything through Audacity etc., until the system is delivering. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Shure beta 57A ..low recording volume from acoustic piano ...Directly to laptop no mixer used


are you using an interface?
Your level will be always be lower if you are going straight in.
Your interface and mixer will help you get the correct level in to your system before recording and also shaping the sound after the recording.You just need to get more gain up in there

Solo group auto control{- what does it do? like the switches from solo-chior


It is intended to do automix on the "solo group". The auto mix apparently levels mics that are receiving audio and reduces or mutes those not receiving vocal activity for each of the groups. The mixer has abiliity to select certain channels into the three subgroups, one of which is the "solo".

When u export the track down too a wav.form and i convert it too mp3. if i listen too it in headphones i can only hear the vocals in the right earbud.


Well, did you run the vocals through a mixer and send to BOTH channels of the Lexicon Alpha? If you connect the mic to only one channel you will only get one channel UNLESS you process the .wav file and PAN the vocal channel into both channels when outputing to your MP3.

Took apart and cleaned all my ribbon cable connectors (all off at once). Also took off and cleaned and reseated all molex connectors. Now back together but....solo light on all channels is lit with nothing...


A few questions first:

1) Does this effect the functioning of the "solo" at all? (ie is the light on always but without effect and can you select solo using the pushbutton?) We need to determine whether or not the problem is a funcitonal one or just the indicators being lit when they shouldn't be.

2) Are there any other symptoms at all? Any other lights effected at all or any functions not working as expected?

I will look up the prints for this, but I need to narrow down the search a bit. Gaining access to the board is not quick as all of the knobs need to be removed and all of the control nuts removed as well. If we can narrow this down a bit, you may be able to avoid that.

Please post up the info requested and I'll pull up the prints.

Thanks,
Dan

Can't get sound out of the main outs just the solo out I using a mackie 1604 mixer bought back in late 1990's about 1995


Here is the manual if you don't have one:http://www.mackie.com/pdf/archive/cr1604_om.pdf. There are solo buttons for each channel. There is also an auxiliary return solo button. There is also a solo to main button. These buttons are all inter related. Is your main output mute button in or out? Read the manual carefully as there are a myriad of combinations you can use. Have a look at the trouble shooting guide on page 21. If you can't find a solution try contacting Mackie. Let me know if this helps.

Can't record vocals


You can use any mic you want but you have to go to the soundcard mixer and enable the source for recording from the recording properties. If you have a separate soundcard not the onboard one usually it will have it`s own mixer software so you open that up and set it to record from the microphone input if that`s where your mic is inserted. If you use the onboard sound card then go to control panel - sound and select the device you want and also set the recording source. In sonar you have to right click on the track in the left part of the screen. This brings up the properties for that track. The you select the sound card input and output for that audio track.
That shoudl solve your problem.
Of course you will get a much better result if you use a good mic plugged into a mixer or pre amp and send the source into the line in of your sound card and adjust the rest accordingly.

Vocal effects on Tascam 2488 MK 2 portable studio


Hi again,

The easiest way to record using an external Lexicon effects unit (without an external mixer) is to connect your mic onto one of the 2488's inputs and assign that input to a channel strip (track). You should have the 2488 sends (output) going to the Lexicon's inputs. Then connect the Lexicon outputs back into another set of inputs on your 2488 and assign those inputs to two empty channel strips (tracks).

Then you will have to take that channel that has your mic input assigned to it and press send and set the levels there to send the signal out the sends (to the Lexicon).
Now you have a channel strip assigned to the mic input which contains your dry signal, and you have the two inputs returning from the Lexicon which contains your wet or effected signal.
You then have some options. You can control the amount of effected signal you hear while recording by adjusting the faders of the two wet tracks and you can either record the dry signal or the wet signal (or both) onto separate tracks.

Typically when recording the singer will want to hear an effect (say reverb) on his voice, but the engineer wants to record only the dry track at recording time (because effects can always be added later, but they can't be taken out). To accomplish this you would use the setup above, but only arm the mic input track for recording. In this way the singer hears the reverb, but only the dry vocals get recorded and the engineer can add reverb to that track again later as desired (and mix it back with the dry vocal etc).

On the other hand if you want to record only the effected signal you would simply arm the two channels to which the inputs coming back from your Lexicon are assigned for recording. This will get you a recording of the effected signal only.
Hope this helps you do what you are trying to do.

Cheers.

bd.
