There are four wireless microphone mistakes that get a sound tech in trouble. The first mistake is one I’m often asked about. I will be upfront and say that I’ve made two of these mistakes. Two, maybe three. No, two. Forgive and forget, right? [sigh]
1. Allow signal seepage (that sounds… disgusting!)
It goes like this;
- Channel gain (trim) knob is at zero.
- Fader is at unity or below.
- The wireless signal still seeps (bleeds) through into the channel and out the main speakers.
Why does this happen when the gain is turned to zero? The answer is simple and the solution even simpler. [click to continue »]
