Our first rehearsal with the PAS is tomorrow night and I need presets for 1) Shure SM58 and 2.) EV757. Also in another application we use 2 Shure 58 wireless mics. Ok to run in CH 1 & 2? If so what preset to use then?
Shure SM 58 should use preset 1 (wireless or not).
For the EV757 I would try first preset '00' and then compare that to '06' and maybe '02'.
If you are in a hurry and can't try it out stick with '00'.
Hope that helps.
Try the ND357 (#06). Try them all, twist the EQ knobs. Let us know what you end up with.
Hilmar, my man, I am the proud new owner of the Bose System (with one bass module.) For my Taylor 814ce I am using the Taylor 810 ce preset. It is flawless! May my playing be worthy of such reproduction. What setting would you suggest for the Neumann KMS 105 mt?
And also, the manual states that the phantom power for the mic is 24v and the Neumann like most other mics requires 48v. It seems to work fine, am I missing something? Or is this a misprint in the manual? I would hate to be damaging either the system or the microphone (they aint cheap).
With good humor, Satinman
Cliff or Hillman:
What preset do you recommend for Sennheiser e855's. We're using SM58 setting, but still getting some feedback. Have to reduce the highs and sacrifice some quality. Need your suggestions. Thanks, RL

I'm sure the other guys will post here too.
Try just one hypercardioid, tilt it a bit up on the stand if you can. I think you'll hear a big difference and get a lot more gain. Try the Shure SM87A of the Beyer 88.

Preset 02 works in a wide range of situations, especially for mics not yet on the list. Also, try 00 just to see where the mic is at. Most mics up close get agressive in the upper bass/lower mids (200-250 Hz octave) and 02 deals with this. This is a start. If it's too bright, this will encourage feedback in the upper mids, so experiment with the treble control on your remote. Turn the knobs until you're happy. Failing this, try other presets and preset/remote-EQ combinations.
Not sure if you were answering my question about the setting for Sennheiser e855 mikes.
We have four vocal mikes. Three at front of stage and one with keyboard player who sets up behind us to the right of drummer. We are having problem with some feedback, unless we reduce the highs on remote for mikes.
Also, keyboard player has difficult time hearing himself over the rhythm guitarist. I'm thinking he may be too close to PAS, as well as the drummer. Do you have any suggestions for placement of musicians?
We have 3 PAS systems (incl. B1's) and two additonal B1's (making a total of 3 B1' for Bass Guitar and Kick Drum)
The center system has keyboard, bass, elecric drums, and two vocal mikes going thru it.(vocal and bass use input 1 & 2, keyboard & drums are thru mixer in channel 3) Each system to left and right sides are using guitar/vocal.
Until we get our 4th PAS, do u have any better configuration?
Hard to do this over the internet. I wish I could come over to your rehearsal and help out.
We havn't tested an e855. It appears to be a handheld dynamic. Can you compare it to the sound of an sm58? (I notice one of its advertised features is "searing vocal reproduction". who writes this stuff?) Anyway, have you had luck with any of the presets?
We are in the process of upgrading the presets and will include this mic. Do you think that this a widely-used mic? It looks like an expensive one and Sennheiser makes very good stuff.
Gitarzan here. We just need to find a Guitarwildman and we'll have us a band.
Do you have more than one keyboard player and drummer or are you splitting those instruments between two systems? If its the latter, you may need a little more separation between the keyboard player, drummer, and the rhythm guitarist. If I had three systems, I would put the drummer and bass, along with their vocals through the center system and split the other instruments and vocals as evenly as possible off to the sides, without any instruments being split between systems.
My vocalist uses a Sennheiser e865. It's the Sting signature series one. I would be very interested in a preset for that mic, or at least that family. Compared to an SM58 with my relatively inexperienced ears, the Sennheiser is a little less trebly, a little less hissy. Of course, I guess he was using the e865 with a foam covering and the SM58 didn't have one. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Still waiting on an answer about the neumann kms 105 mt and the 24v vs 48 v question. Sent 2/16/04.....Thanks SM
Thanks for the reply. Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner. On vacation and a cruise.
The Sennheiser e855 is a very accurate mic. It is crisp but not trebly and has good bottom, but not boomy. The Sure SM58 is a step down from it. Use to use them, but 855's are far superior.
We still get some feedback with lead singers mic (center mic). L-1 column is behind him about 12 feet. He holds the mic most of time.
Tried 00 and 01, but not any others as yet. Will try 02 setting next gig on Mar.22
Does having players in front of columns block any of sound to audience? Should the L-1's be in between players?
Some stages we play are small and limited width.
We just added our 4th PAS for keyboard player. That seems to have solved the his problem with hearing the rhythm guitarist over himself.
The keys were going thru the center system with the bass and drums. There is now much more separation and clarity.
Thanks for your feedback.
I have been using the Neumann KMS 105 with the "00" preset (which is presumably dry) and adding, but mostly subtracting EQ by using the remote. From what I have read on these boards, there seems to be talk of filling the "dry" presets with actual EQ'd presets. Is this the case or am I misinterpreting the posts? Also reading this has got me somewhat intrigued with the fabled "preset 2" with this mic. Any other KMS105 users who can make recommendations based on their experiences? By the way, I am not using a bass module. I am a guitarist and singer and find I get all the tone I need without it.
we are in the process of creating new presets (filling in some of the "holes") and I think we will recommend the existing preset 2 for the KMS105. Off course, your sound is your sound and whatever sounds best to you, that is by all means what you should use. I'm, too, interested to hear what other people are using.
The Atlanta Sound Band uses predominately Shure Beta 87A handheld wired microphones for vocals. Please include this preset in the next updates for the preset settings.
