T1 Trim/Volume setting
Despite having used my T1 for around a year I have to admit that the trim thing still has me baffled as to it's usefulness so I'm hoping somebody could explain what it's actual purpose is.
My set up is L1 M2 with B2 and T1.
I use a KMS105 which goes into channel one with the relevant preset selected.
My guitar goes into channel two and my backing tracks in 4/5.
I am happy with the sound most of the time until I need to start pushing the system and then for some reason the mic seems to lose power when the trim goes into red, it is sort of like compression kicking in and it isn't always desirable.
Is this something to do with how the trim is set?
Am I using the trim incorrectly when I use it like a volume?
In general the trim for the mic is usually set at around 12 o'clock as is the channel volume and the master volume and I usually adjust the master either way as and when required.
I'd be grateful if somebody could explain the correct way to set it up because when a gig is in full swing I need to be able to raise the overall volume to counter the mood of the crowd.
I did a gig Saturday in a nice venue and by the second set I had around 100 people on the dance floor but the moment I started going into classics like Sweet Caroline the mic seems to cut out when the trim hits red, it's quite debilitating when you need to maintain power across the room.
I use my B2 mostly on the middle setting so am wondering whether setting it at maximum for noisier gigs might help maintain the output a bit rather than the compression effect I am getting when I drive the system.
Grateful for any tips.
