Bluetooth Volume on the S1 Pro
First gig today using one S1 Pro on speaker stand, Audix OM6 microphone, and bluetooth from iPhone sending set at full volume for backing tracks. Street setting busking outdoors on a low stage facing an endless wide courtyard with trees between shops, and facing out to the ocean.
Totally impressed with S1 Pro, as it did the job it was supposed to do easily. Had the Volume for the microphone at 5 o'clock full. Backed it off to 4 o'clock for stronger vocal songs, which is what I always do anyway at gigs.
This allowed me to adjust the music to balance with my vocals, and I quickly found a good mix, with plenty of volume. I feel the S1 Pro is doing exactly what it is supposed to, and it was so easy to use, and I was getting such a good sound that I was able to relax, and focus on my performance.
I also think an OM6 needs more gain than a SM58, so I feel the S1 Pro is set up for the Audix OM6 perfectly. In effect, I kept the music level down so the vocals were clear. I also didn't notice any red light on the microphone channel.
What I would like to know is, that with bluetooth being just data transfer, that it doesn't drain extra battery from the iPhone being set at full volume. Does the S1 Pro do the work to change volume as dictated by the source? Unlike an iPod classic for example, where more volume drains more iPod battery with higher output line signal.
