I think Ron may be the one to help me with this....
when we play gigs, our gear consists of the following..
XDV-35 w/ Shure SM86 Capsule
XDV-30 w/ Shure SM86 Capsule
Shure PGX1 Wireless Guitar pack
Shure PGX wireless reciever
The last few gigs there has been a problem where out of nowhere we get a loud SNAP ( like those snap firecracker things you throw down on the floor ) that comes through the speakers... most of the time, this happens one time and never happens again during the show... There was no audio dropout at the time either... lately its been a situation where the sound we get sound like when you uplug a microphone when the channel is still on.... Now I am honestly thinking the true culrpit is the Shure Wireless Guitar BUT I do think we had this happen recently when we went with the Ipod wired into the house snake through a D.I box and we had the issue... It could be the Ipod but I doubt that... What could this be??
I've checked the battery compartments and the batteries are not shaking loose... my wireless capsules are screwed on tight and the wires that I can see on the element look fine as well..... I also have used different XLR cables on both XDV recievers to rule out bad cables... What could this be? how can I diagnose this ? The sound guy tonight had no idea... we got the loud POP during sound check 3 times... and once during the performance we got the loud SNAP sound... but again.. there was no dropout in the sound at all so I'm not sure what do to or how I could even begin to troubleshoot.. I LOVE my XDV and the Condenser mic capsules on these have been the most impressive sounding mics I've come across, So as I stated, I figure Ron Marton might be able to shed some light on this for me
