Line6 XD-V30 Mic delay
by rowl3y on 2012-06-13 01:26:21

Hi, I woundering if this is right. I Have the xd-v30, When we are using the mic on stage next to the receiver the is no delay but soon as we go off stage witch I would say is about 6 - 7 meters there is like a 1 second delay witch then total messes up the singer's

Is there somthing wrong here ?

Yes. Can you list details of the rest of the equipment that you're using and how it's set up?

I think it's highly unlikely that your V30 is the problem here.

If you're moving from listening to monitors to listening to FoH (which has been delayed for time alignment purposes) that is one possible explanation but even then a 1s delay is huuuge.

Just used is a Laptop controller with the wireless with no wireless on it. and a mixer board.. When im using my Shure UHF mic there is no problem's.

But using the Line6 there is a delay. I have had the unit 2 weeks and if thats the way they work then I think i'm gonna have to sell back on. Mic delay is not good.

On the weekend I will get a view recording of the mic and the delay.

If a straight swap of the V30 for a different radio mic solves the problem, it sounds a lot like you have a faulty unit (although to be honest I struggle to see how any kind of fault could produce a 1s delay). With a big delay is certainly not how they normally work. I'd suggest getting in touch with your retailer and getting it replaced.

Like I said When i standing by the unit it work for but when im away from it and the signal bar and still full there is a delay

Swopping the unit might be hard as  I got it from ebay used once

Does this delay suddenly happen - as in you're fine up until you take one step more and suddenly there's a full second of delay or does it come in gradually and vary depending on how far away you are?

I think you'll have to post up a video of this in action as I really can't see how it's even possible for that to happen.

thanks for your help.

I have just phoned the uk support and spoke to a tech guy, He said the unit is faulty and needs to be returned

He is incorrect with respect to delay.  The latency is fixed and there is no way it can change.  If the mic is making sound then the latency is fixed at about 4ms.  If you are getting more delay than this something else is causing it.  There is no circuitry in the V30 that could make longer delay possible.

Sorry rowl3y...

We'd all love to help, but we'll need you to provide more clues.

Like Sheriton and Mr Boomer, I can see no way that any of Line 6's wireless systems could possibly exhibit the symptoms you describe.

The latency on the Line 6 XD stuff is a bit of a pig to be honest...the one thing I hate the most.
