I've been testing my VMS4.1 which I purchased last September at the BPM show in Birmingham.
I haven't used it yet at a gig because I've been learning how to use virtual DJ.
My problem is last night whilst testing my rig, I starting testing the microphone channels on the VMS 4.1 and was surprised to find they were very noisy. Further experimentation led me to discover that the EQ section behaves very strangely. Most EQ sections on every desk I've ever used give a +/- db of attenuation at particular frequencies, i.e if you turn down the treble the high frequencies are reduced by a percentage for example +/- 15db @ 10kHz.
However on my VMS 4.1 the eq controls appear to give 100% attenuation of a particular band. So if I turn down low, mid and high I actually don't get any output from the microphone.
Also if I turn up any of the eq controls much past 10% I get a pronounced hissing noise from the each filter. This happens on both mic channels, with or without the microphone connected.
Does any one else have this problem, or is this a fault ? Does any one have the actual specification for these controls ?
Any help appreciated.
