Set the voice input level on the voicelive2 by following this guide from the live 2 manual... Step 4: Set Mic Level This step informs VoiceLive 2 how loud you plan to sing with your particular mic. We'll use VoiceLive 2's automatic MIC GAIN feature to quickly set the optimum level. 1. Press and hold the REVERB footswitch 2. If you need to activate phantom power for your condenser mic, adjust the onscreen PHANTOM parameter which will restart the level test 2. Sing for five seconds with peaks that are as loud as you plan to sing 3. Follow the prompts in the display to finalize mic level setting, cancel or redo the procedure During performance, if you see the CLIP indicator light in the HOME screen, you can return to the automatic
MIC GAIN feature to adjust the input level.
When input level is set on the voice live ;
on the mixer set
the gain control to 12 o'clock position and
individual channel volume level to 7 ....raise the master volume
slider to hear mic input at desired level and without feedback

I cant get footswitch to bypass


okay James - this is a long shot but I wanted to at least give it a shot. I've copied a bit of text I found from a users forum for Helicon. And is there software to be updated?

The footswitch must be plugged into the unit before you power on.

Monitoring vocals and cd/tape


Here is a link for the manual, can't download it but you can read it online.THESE words are written on page 9 of the manual," If you are recording a signal via the TAPE OUTPUT and wish to listen to this simultaneously via the CD/TAPE INPUT, do not use the CD/TAPE TO MIX switch. Doing this would create a feedback loop, since the signal would be routed, via the main mix, back to tape via the TAPE OUTPUT. To monitor the CD/TAPE INPUT, use the CD/TAPE TO CTRL switch to assign the tape signal to the monitor(s) or headphones. This will avoid the tape signal being routed to the TAPE OUTPUT."

It also says this under that,"If you want to monitor only the efects signal in your headphones or monitor speaker(s), press the FX TO CTRL switch. Now the signal of the efects processor can be monitored alone, and the main mix andnor CDntape signal is no longer present on the phone and control room outputs."

Help with hooking up a compressor for vocals.


The compressor is a really good idea and should be connected between your mixer and your amplifiers. Your "integrated" mixer/amp is a bit tricky in that you will have to "insert" the compressor in the signal path.

If you have the "console" model....

1. "Main 1 Out" left and right to the input of your compressor and the output of the compressor connected to the "PWR Amp Insert."

2. What is known as Tip, Ring, Sleeve patch cable and plug connected ONLY to the "PWR Amp Insert." This type connection breaks out into a "Input" and "Output" using a single 1/4 stereo plug.

If you have the "square box with knobs on front" model

1. "Main Output" to input of comressor and compressor outputs to "Input to Main" (aka "AUX IN").

Check your owners manual for hookup details or suggestions and remember, all outputs feed inputs and all inputs feed outputs.

VoiceLive


I had this problem. I sprayed the switches with contact cleaner from outside and jiggled them a bit. I also powered it from a different socket. The problem has not recurred since.

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.

When we are trying to get a reasonable level of sound for vocals before it gets loud enough to be able to hear clearly with the band playing it starts to clip at the speakers now we are only using this set...


Proper level setting of the mixer is important. HOWEVER if the clipping is occuring at the speakers the only possible problem MIGHT be that you have a supersonic feedback that is saturating the speakers above your hearing range, Be sure you don't boost the highs too much with the EQ as this can cause the feedback that you can't hear. Also make sure that you power the speakers from the SAME receptacle as the mixer, even if it means running an extension cord to bring power to the mixer. This is to avoid a low frequency hum and common mode distortion/damage. A low frequency hum could cause the clipping.
It would be a good idea to get a sound meter to check the sound level. You should be able to reach 85 Db from this system without clipping. If you need more than that, you MAY need more speakers if the band instruments are too loud. Also if the band has amps that get into the vocal microphones that adds to the clipping level... make sure the mics don't "hear" the band instruments. Make sure your speakers are toward the audience from the mics to avoid the supersonic feedback problem. If the vocalists can't hear themselves with that configuration you need to set up seperate stage monitors.

There are some pretty good videos on YouTube about proper mixer level setup.

I need to know step by step how to hook up my entired system using my macki board. I have a Mackie 1604 Vlz, a power amp for mains, a power amp for subs, a crossover, a vocal effects processor, and a 16...


ok, first thing will be the effects processor. look for the "aux sends" output jacks near the bottom center of the rear panel. run a 1/4 inch instrument cable from "aux send" 3 out into the input on the vocal processor, and run another from aux 4, if the effects processor has 2 inputs. then, from the vocal processors output, run 1/4 inch cables back into the "stereo returns" on the mixer, (located on the rear panel on the bottom, extreme left) 2 outputs per input, since its making stereo effects. so, if you ran just send 3 into the processor, you should have a left and right return instrument cables into the mixer for "stereo return" 3 (left and right). if your processor has 2 imputs, and you are using both "aux send" 3 and 4, then you will have to have a pair of cables going to each "stereo return" for 3 & 4. -to apply effects to a microphone(s), you would adjust the individual aux send levels for each channel you want to have effects, and you would have to ensure that the master aux sends and returns are also turned up..

ok, the snake is simple, each xlr (3 prong mic) connector on the snake is labeled, so, just plug each xlr jack into the corresponding channel on the board, and plug the first 2 1/4 inch ends of the snake into the "C/R out balanced" outputs on the board, located on the rear panel, up and to the left a bit.

at the stage end of the snake, ues a 1/4 inch instrument cable to copnnect the first 2 1/4 inch jacks on the snake to the left and right inputs of the crossover. then, from the crossover, connect the sub power amp to the "low" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables, and connect the main speakers amp to the "high" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables. if its an adjustable corssover, you will want to have it crossed over somewhere about 80-120 hz to allow only the lowest frequencies to the subs.

now, from the amps to the speakers, we ane going to have to use heavier 12-14 gague SPEAKER CABLES, instead of light gague instrument cables. hook the subs up to the stereo speaker outs of the sub amp with speaker cables, and do the same for the main speakers.
