Can A Receiver Be Shared


Best Answer Sheriton , 07 May 2013 - 07:14 AM

There are a couple of ways of doing this, although to be honest, using a second receiver is a better option in my opinion.

 

You can have both transmitters set to the same channel and only ever have one switched on at a time. This method will work with any type of radio mics but does require discipline to work.

 

The other option, which is somewhat unique to Line6, uses the fact that the receiver will lock on to the first transmission it hears and will completely ignore any subsequent transmitters on that same channel. When the first transmitter is switched off, the receiver will only then start receiving the second transmitter.

 

As I say though, being able to control things from the desk is always my preferred option; relying on the presenters to turn their mics on & off at the right times is a recipe for disaster.

Hi, I am getting a XD v35 and v35l to bring abroad to use for the speakers at a conference. Now the client is asking for a second lapel mic (so that one speaker can be getting ready as the other is talking). I am wondering is it possible to share the receiver between 2 lapel mics (less to carry and 1 less input taken up on the small desk), one being muted at a time.

 

Is this possible or do the mic and receiver exclude all other sources when paired together? Can the receiver pair to two transmitters simultaneously?

 

Many Thanks

Declan

Line 6 wireless systems still continue to transmit when they are muted as only the audio itself is muted.

As mentioned above, if you have time to turn one off before turning the other transmitted on it will work. But it make the chances for operator error much higher. So it depends on how important your show is.

Thanks guys, thats about what I thought. I'll go with the 1 transmitter and receiver for each.

 

Thanks,

Declan
