Senneiser g3 audio splats
on Feb 3, 2013 at 10:05:24 am

Hi

I have had some senneiser g3s fr a year ow and am plagued by an issue. I have three of them all with the standard clip mic that comes with them (me2 I think). I have a recurring audio crack that happens. It never effects the mics (or not that I have noticed) when they are used by themselves for single camera single presenter stuff. However whenever they are all used (sometimes with a 4th hired mic) I get a lot of audio splats. It sounds like a crackle and builds to a horrible crack. I typically do live webcasts to. Have the portable receivers plugged into an audio mixer which is when I tend to notice this.

I have tried changing frequencies and only use bank 1 in the uk but I am still going issues. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Richard

Have you used the 'Scan' function?..... These days with the amount of RF around you really need to do a scan on every unit every time at every different location.

SCAN should be the most used function after the 'On / Off" switch.

Hi

I'll give this a try though I am lead to believe there are only 12 frequencies on bank 1 that can be used in the UK?

Thanks

Richard

You can use any frequencies in Channel 38 band (I believe that means any between 600-638Mhz or thereabouts - check on that).

Other banks on the G3 cover these frequencies as well.

There is a chart that came with your G3 which states which bank covers which frequencies.

Thanks, I was specifically advised by Sennheiser that unless using coordinated frequencies with JFMG we're only allowed to use bank 1 and indeed using frequencies across different banks can lead to issues which is why I now only use Bank 1 however I am still having the same issue.

Thanks for all the help so far.

Really?!? I find this quite odd.

I always thought that any frequencies between 606Mhz and 614Mhz (Ch.38) are open to all licensed users. And in the G3 100s that I've got, I can see usable frequencies in Banks: 6,7,9,10,11,12.

And certainly Banks shouldn't mean a lot really. It is just the way the manufacturer "organises" the provided frequencies with its products. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here ).

Also, with the G3s - under the Custom banks - you can manually change the frequencies but the RF modulation is not guaranteed to any frequencies that are not in the user banks,
