  1. The greater distance you can get between devices that use the same wavelength is usually better. I *think* the *minimum* distance you want is 2 or 2.5x the wavelength that you're operating on (wavelength for 2.4GHz is 12.5cm), though you might want to double-check that with other sources...
  2. My recommendation: get a router that does 5GHz and can turn off 2.4GHz wifi, that way they don't compete.
  3. Well, the G10 already has an XLR out in addition to the 1/4" out. So isn't that already what you want?
  4. They work on the exact same frequencies and protocols (you can make your guitar transmitter go through the XD-V 75 and Mic go through the G90 if you really wanted). I chain a G50 through my XD-V 75 on a fairly regular basis without issue. In short, you should have no problems doing so. I would have one of your G90's be the primary (the one the antennas are connected to) as they are probably a hair stronger.
  5. A: what RF mode are you using on the microphone? I'd recommend RF1. B: change the wifi channel you're using on the router and/or look for a less-noisy channel to use on the wireless mic. C: If possible, use 5GHz wifi and turn off 2.4GHz.
  6. I believe you can. The connector is the same. The only possible problem would be phantom power, but i'm pretty sure they're the same physically with just different firmware from the factory handling EQ/presets. If you already have both, try it out; it shouldn't damage anything.
  7. I just realized you said G70, i was thinking the XD70 (microphone, not guitar). Not sure if they have a distinction between RF modes. I'd look at the placement of the receiver; make sure it's not next to anything that causes lots of radio wave interference. Examples: If you use IEMs, avoid putting the IEM transmitter next to the G70 receiver, and keep the receiver as far from power supplies as you can; all the AC/DC conversions can make lots of extra noise. Also, I personally like the put the transmitter in a pouch and attach it to the guitar strap; keeps it away from the body and clothes that may also wreck havoc with the signals. These are suggestions in how to improve the connection. I wouldn't expect it to be cutting out at all if you're 10-20 or so feet away, though, so if it's happening while you're close to the receiver, not sure. Is it on a pedalboard with other stuff or just out in the open?
  8. I would make sure you're in RF1 mode; they're probably set to RF2 out of the box. RF2 is more for the situations where you can control the environment and need to squeeze out an extra couple of channels 'plays well with others' mode, and RF1 is more of the 'we need to be heard and will push through the crowd more' mode.
  9. for home practicing, i think this is amazing (unless you're wandering around your mansion, in which case you'll lose signal). I don't know about on a live stage yet, though; that will depend on range and how sensitive it is to the interference of a bunch of cel phones in the crowd.
  10. Also, if my memory serves me, there's a low-power mode if you're not going to be wandering too far from your pedalboard.
  11. Yes. I've used garage band and logic to take the files the M20D makes and mix them to a stereo mp3. Basically you drag all of the wav files into one garageband project and it should create a new track for each one.
  12. Initial instinct is that your two goals are fighting each other; by reducing the boominess you're freeing the frequency space for the pick noise to shine through. If you really want to reduce the pick noise now, you'd want another set of EQs. Maybe use the dynamic EQs in there to help? What is the situation? live on-stage with guitarist moving around, or static position? If guitar is in a fairly static position, i'd recommend a mix of pickups for low-end and a mic pointed a bit up the neck for string brightness, mixing the two together.
  13. Remember, these are *receivers*, not transmitters. The transmitters are on the instrument. I'm not expert, but I'd think having both unit's antennae right next to each other would create a shadow for each other (unless of course you're using the paddles). Chaining would have both racks get the full picture.
  14. Daisy chaining would probably be the best, as the antennae from one might interfere with the other if they're just next to each other. Though if you're not going more than 20 ft away it might not be an issue; since these are receivers and not transmitters you'll probably just get some weaker signals. But what it comes down to is do you expect that you'll be keeping both in the rack for a while? If so, no harm and cleaner looking by just chaining them together.
  15. the way you get main out to any monitor is is to set all the channels and fx out to the same level (usually the Unity' line), and set them all as post-fader.
  16. Likewise! though one of my violins has a smaller output jack that'll need an adapter, so i'll still need something for that.
  17. they are saying 4 systems, not just 4 transmitters to one receiver.
  18. Think of directional antennae as lights with a wide coverage (look at the documentation for the antenna for how wide of an angle). You want the coverage to overlap as much as possible, and the 'shadows' that people cast need to be minimized. As for height, few feet above head hight is optimal, but sometimes you need to go top down to get the best line of sight. This will definitely take experimentation still. if you do end up going from the top down, don't go from the ends; be in the middle somewhere. Don't point straight down; you'll want them at an angle pointing inward a bit. Always keep the antenna pickup pattern in mind.
  19. I'm not an antenna cable person, but the following link seems to give good information on cable runs:
  20. Top down from the ceiling would be my instinct. That reduces the body blocking the signal as they'd need to be laying on the pack for that to happen. Not sure how feasible this would be for you, though.
  21. Apparently my screen has started glitching on my receiver. it looks like every few refresh cycles it decides to jump the characters around on the screen. Anyone else ever have this happen? Is there a chance this would this affect the wireless operation or is this most likely a 'cosmetic' type of issue? Video attached (quicktime doesn't seem to want to 'play' it for me, but you can scroll frame by frame to see what's happening) Edit: well apparently the video didn't attach. found at
  22. How old is the G30? If it's an older one, you might need to make sure the transmitter is in RF1 mode (new transmitter might default to RF2 which the older receivers don't know how to pick up.)
  23. Try the update again. If memory serves, the receiver is stuck in 'i want to update something' mode and might need to get a signal from the software to kick back in to 'normal' mode.
  24. Try setting them all to RF1 mode; it's more forgiving. Also, make sure you're holding the handheld mic higher on the neck and not at the very bottom. I sometimes get dropouts when people hold it at the bottom; I'm guessing that's where the antenna is.
  25. You say it's in the recorded tracks, is that the individual channel or the all-together recording? If it's the individual channel, that's before the compressor. Does it happen in any other channel? If you have phantom power on but don't need it for the mic, try moving the mic to an input where phantom power is off (i keep the top row for non-phantom inputs and bottom row for phantom-required inputs). Do you have a sample of the recording (cut out a few seconds where you hear it happening).
