White noise ?

Post by N9WYV » Wed Jul 31, 2013 2:39 pm

Hey guys I'm having white noise when I'm not talking but keyed up on FM Im running a multi gate pro xr 4400 to get rid of the back round noise and when I turn down either via I box or mixer board it gets rid of it but they can barely hear me or I'm pinched up any ideas is a downward expander different than my multi gate?

Howdy N9WYV,

Welcome to the Forum!

There is not a lot of information in your post to really help you, but just guessing off hand it sounds like a Gain Structure Problem.

What are you using for Audio Equipment and a Transmitter, also how are you connecting everything?
any ideas is a downward expander different than my multi gate?
Your XR 4400 is a Downward Expander. All that means is it is a highly adjustable Noise Gate. A Noise Gate is basically either "ON" to OFF". The Downward expander gives you some adjust-ability and shaping to the triggering, hold time, and release.

That is a very basic description, for a more involved explanation look at this link to a RaneNote from Rane.com.

Howdy N9WYV,

Were you ever able to EQ and set your Gain Structure properly on your Rack?
How are things playing now?
