Hello, I'm sorry about posting in this section about XT, but there's no section about the X3 Live.

I have a X3 Live with a effed Trim Pot, doesn't matter if I rise or lower it, I get reaaaally low level, even boosting the comp to max, I just can't get enough level.


I've read some threads about it, but none of them explains the actual problem, if it's the pot I can solder a new or a different one to it.

Anyone got an idea of how I can fix this? I'm very interested on fixing it as I sing live with this device, and I'm very interested in the vocoder.


Thank you very much for your help!

moved topic to x3 section.

 

the trim pot is real sensitive... in my experience the first 90% of the adjustment is not useful..

and adjusting within that last 10% is sometimes difficult....

your mic may factor in as well....

the x3 and x3 live do not have phantom power.

Hello, I tried different dynamic mics, Shure SM58, Sennheiser... but no way, no matter I turn it up or down, the only way to make it sound is raising the compressor gain to insane levels... And still that way it has really low volume... I also tried a different cable...

Any technical advices I can do to fix it?

Thanks.

dont know enough internally to advise you about a technical fix...

but you might try picking up something like this as a workaround:

it will also do phantom power so maybe that will benefit as well?

 

if you'd rather just get what you have working, try an authorized service center, i suspect it will be more than simply getting a used replacement... or at least close enough to the cost of a used one to not be worth it in my mind.

Have you tried a preamp model of somesort? With my X3 Pro I use the American Classic preamp with dynamic ans condenser mics.

I mostly play at home  and am always having fun learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not. Lastly I'm not a salesman, I'm not trying to sell anyone anything here.

Yeah, tried all preamp models... but all of them have no volume at all... If the problem is the pot, I can easily change it for another one...
