Line6Tony posted a article in Relay/XD-V Digital WirelessXD-V Digital Wireless Systems Comparison Page Receiver Output Level Adjust (Digital Gain Control): default is set to Unity Gain (0 dB), but now the XD-V75 Receiver provides users with the ability to adjust output "digital" gain by -18dB up to +12dB to provide more flexibility, especially when using third party microphones. Note: +12dB gain is NOT equivalent to "line-level" signal; this is still a "mic-level" signal. 14 Channels: up from the 12 Channels on our previous XD-V70 system. 10 Microphone models (for Hand-Held System) L6 (Line 6): Line 6 Custom 58 (Shure): SM58 B58 (Shure): Beta 58 57 (Shure): SM57 835 (Sennheiser): e835 935 (Sennheiser): e935 41 (Audio-Technica): AE4100 767 (Electro-Voice): N/D767A O5 (Audix): OM5 D5 (AKG): D5 *All product names above are trademarks of their respective owners, which are in no way associated or affiliated with Line 6.

OFF: No Filtering NORM: Filter for Singing TALK: Filter for Speaking RF Channel Scan: provides a visual map of the 2.4 GHz space in the System Setup of the Receiver Unit, enabling system technicians and performers to "map out" the 2.4 GHz spectrum when other wireless devices in proximity are active as well. It also provides visual indication of the RF1 and RF2 mode devices being operated in the range of the receiver. In short, allows the user to select channels that have lower background interference and to better avoid WiFi interference. Crypto Mode: a digital cipher scheme allowing secure open-channel communication in critical situations. Better known as encryption and allows to lock a transmitter to a receiver so that no other receiver (that doesn't have the code keyed in) to receive the transmission from that particular transmitter. This provides security for those who wish to keep their program material from being intercepted by unauthorized individuals. It is typically used in courtrooms, hospitals and board meeting rooms. NOTE: If encryption is active on one device (i.e. the transmitter) and not the other (the receiver), the error message "Blocked no transmission" will be displayed. Improved RF Out-Of-Band Isolation: improved radio front end providing better isolation from RF interference outside of the 2.4 GHz band. Normally RF signals that are not close to the tuned frequency of a receiver are ignored by that receiver, however when they are very close or very strong they may interfere with a receiver. We added an extra layer of protection and filtering to block signals from transmitters outside of the 2.4 GHz band. Mini-USB Port: for any future Firmware updates when new versions are release via Line 6 Monkey. It is now possible to update existing Relay and XD-V products via 1/4" TRS (stereo) cable or radio transmission from the XD-V75 antenna outputs with the XD-V75 Receiver. Dimensions XD-V75 Receiver: Standard 1 unit space height (1/2 width) rackmount Does USB 3.0 create interference in the 2.4GHz frequency range? USB 3.0 computer cables and peripherals, including hard drives, are known to emit radio frequency interference throughout the 2.4GHz band, which results in reduced range and/or performance for any 2.4GHz device in its proximity (including wireless keyboard or mouse, WiFi, etc.). We recommend placing any digital wireless receivers at least two meters away from the USB 3.0 device and its cabling. Below is a link to a study by Intel regarding this interference. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/io/universal-serial-bus/usb3-frequency-interference-paper.html Additional Links: XD-V75 Manual XD-V Digital Wireless Microphones FAQ Digital Wireless Troubleshooting USB Firmware Updating USB Firmware Updating (Device Positioning)
Lessons for the weekend - Mics!
the_bees_knees22 posted a topic in HelixSo most of of the discussions on here are asking about how to get this sound or that sound, or just how to get a good sound period. Most of the responses are usually just "eq it", or "use an IR." I don't really always buy those responses, as I feel like I've been able to get some pretty great sounds for what I want out of the helix just right out of the box without too much hassle. I think a large part of why some people have issues is that they don't understand all of the mic choices, and what/how to use to them put them in a better zone for the tone they want right off the bat. So how about a discussion for what people use when they want a certain sound. Ex) I like the ribbon 121 for modern and fat sounding. (rarely ever use an sm57 on the helix since I feel it's too thin, and tiny in comparison even though it's been a standard for ages). For bass I love the 4038 and 112. The 4038 for something super thick (but i put it 4-6" away depending on what bass I'm playing with to keep it from being too boomy), and the 112 since it's still thick, but has a little more shape to the sound. (for a non scientific explanation) For those that are curious, there are lots of comparison vids on youtube as well that are super informative. Or you can just google "best mics for guitar" or "best mic's for bass guitar" and it's pretty good at giving you the most popular ones for a particular instrument. Anyway, what are your people's go to mics when you're going for a specific sound, and why?
The XD-V75 receiver firmware can be updated via the mini-USB port connection to a host computer (Windows XP/Vista/7 or Mac OSX 10.5/10.6/10.7) using the Line 6 Monkey software application. In addition, the XD-V75 receiver can function as an "interface" to update other Line 6 XD-V7x Digital Wireless devices. The actual instructions are provided via the Line 6 Monkey software's step-by-step wizard. This article was created to help clarify the actual physical positioning of devices, as this will have a direct bearing on the success rate of updating the other devices in question. 1. XD-V75 Update of an XD-V75 (or XD-V70) Microphone Transmitter: note that the microphone's update chip is near the middle-top portion of the microphone; the mic is positioned sitting on top of the XD-V75's attached antenna (folded to the left/downward at a 90-degree angle), which is connected to "B OUT": 2. XD-V75 Update of a TBP12 Transmitter (physically place the transmitter as such on top of the B Out single antenna): 3. XD-V75 Update of an XD-V30 Transmitter: 4. XD-V75 Update of an XD-V70 Receiver (Note: mandatory usage of Balanced, or 'stereo' TRS 1/4" cable inbetween the XD-V75 and XD-V70):
