I am not an expert but have set up some of what you have there. Here's what I would do:
PR40 TO MIC2200 CH1 PREAMP
MIC2200 CH1 TO MDX2200 CH1 NOISE GATE
MDX2200 CH1 TO DEQ2496 CH1 GRAPHIC EQ (GEQ)
DEQ2496 CH1 TO EX3200 CH1 VOODOO SETUP
EX3200 CH2 TO DEQ2496 CH2 MULTIBAND COMPRESSION
DSP2024P CH1 TO TRANSMITTER PLATING

You are going to have to do some homework on the settings used. For the DEQ2496 I used NU9N's and for the EX3200 I used the Voodoo settings. You will have to tweak each settings to get it in the general area. I hope this helped.

I am making my XLR cables me self.
So I have the exact right lengt.

But I have question about the lengt & RFI.
Is it right that the shorter the XLR cable between conection from 1 unit to the other unit better to keep RFI outside!?

Hello Group,

I have questions about MIC-2200.
Can the tube be broken. I don't see the tube burning!?

I go in whit me Heil PR40
This because I need to give almost al the mic gain to get some audio.
It is not possible to get him on -3dB .

If I put the mic gain full open ther will get distortion. And if I turn it little back the gain reduce a lot.

So ther is no middle way.

Howdy Cor,
Welcome to the Forum!
It is great to have you here with us.

Sorry That we've not responded sooner, but other things have kept us away such as the "Horrid Move of 2014" and the selling of the old place.

It sounds like you have been figuring things out which is really the way to do it.
Research, research, research...this forum has much information in it, use the search function and you will find most of your answers. This was the main reason for making the forum was to document the answers to many questions.
Playing with audio for hours in the dummy load looking for that perfect Tone is the other step.

To answer your last question about the EX3200, our suggestion is to wait a while. Get used to your sound now, then once satisfied with it do the modifications. It will only get better!

Merry Christmas to you and your Family,
Voodoo Guru

Hi Voodoo Group,

the good news here is that there is HHB Radius-20 on his way to my shack and also two pair of RCA 5751 Command black plates.

First I will test and try this unit before he will move to the operation table for the voodoo modification.

I am also considering to buy RP520 and RP533.
But I don't understand the cable route whit me EX3200.
The setup is as flow or will be as follows.

Mic RE-27
Bellari-520
Aphex-622
Bellari-533
HHB Radius-20
EX-3200
Triple-C
Behringer 2024

Now I like to now how I need to the EX-3200 is that by the RP-533 or HHB Radius-20?

I hope someone can give my good direction how to connect!
