Our female singer has a real good pair of lungs, & no matter how carefully I set up her channel in the bands' Allen & Heath mixer, there are always plenty of times when the pre-amp clips, & I have heard even heard some distortion of her voice on occassions through the foh powered speakers (dB Tech)

I've talked to her about "mic control" but this doesn't seem to work (she uses a nearly new - & expensive - Shure wireless mic)

I know that inserting a compressor into her mic channel could help a lot, but the question is what products to consider?

It needs to be cheapish, & as uncomplicated as possible, plus being small in size would be good.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Sounds like you need a limiter...not a compressor.

You could get a TC-helicon correct. It does desssing, compresor, shaping. Nice unit

I use a BBC Sonic Maximizer with compressor/limiter. Its a rack mount so not to small a footprint

it can do all kinds of stuff including turning off mics when somone is not right in front of it. Goo for open mics on a loud stage

Thanks gman, had a read about this, & just bought a used (ex-studio) unit cheaply on ebay.

Need to have a play with it now I guess.

I now have my BBE 362 to experiment with.

Initially I am planning simply to insert the unit only into Julie's channel (pre fader) on the mixer, any experiences on the best settings?

Also, has anybody used this box with keyboard or guitar (it has 2 channel capability but only 1 set of controls so both channels have to run with the same setting)?

Thanks for any help.

I run my BBC between the board and the amp so all the sound goes thru it. The board has the DSP on vox only so the instrumentation only gets whatever color the amps and effects put into the mic. Overall it makes the sound a lot better.

Try this- conenct an iPod to it and while playing hit the bypass button and hear what this thing can do to all the sound

Thanks gman.

Gig tonight is in a small pub & we're very pushed for space (plus the landlord is a miserable so an' so & won't let me start setting up until an hour before we play, so VERY pushed for time) but next week we're in a much bigger room, plus I've got all the time in the world to experiment before we start.

Wouldn't most vocal compressors function as a hard limiter when you crank 'em to 10? And if not, please get our top people on it.

I have the guitar stompbox version of the BBE Sonic Maximizer. Useful for brightening the sound of a muffled guitar. Great on bass. Easy to overdo, so have Friend 1 listen and Friend 2 adjust the "Process" knob while you play.
