RE: Request Help for Audio Equipment Set Up (Non Pro User)

OK...

I've forgotten a lot of what I used to know (not really just do as the audio guy said to do) back in my TV days...BUT I do know one thing, and that's not to use any compression if you want great sounding music.

We would compress very dynamic audio because we had to for broadcast and our mandate as editors (this is in the old tape to tape days) was to keep audio below 90%. Compressing the audio this way made it safe for broadcasting to Aunt Millie's 19 inch RCA Victor TV set with a tiny little whizzer cone but killed the dynamics.

So try taking that thing out of the chain.

As far as avoiding feedback, you have to keep the mic level low, or keep the microphone as far away from the speakers as possible. There is probably an optimum microphone level/distance that you can work out with trial and error. (carefully...don't blow your speakers)

Take my information with a grain of salt...I'm just going from dim memories!
