How To Set Up PA Systems : How To Set Up A Compressor




What do you think about this video?

Nicholas Maietta: Thank you very much for this video. I'm still working on the sidechain setup for music/voice (not drums, etc).

geNo meNoid: a lot of this videos on YouTube, where they use/test the compressor without even turning it on.....

GayWorldOrder: You mean 'Tip Ring Sleeve,' as in TRS 1/4" cable. There's no such thing as an RTS cable as you state, so not knowing the expert verbiage yourself, you're just further confusing the n00bs.

Peavey Cabiao: expert village..fan

yessy gims: thats good tutorial. jika anda berada di Indonesia, anda akan diajari sound system compressor oleh Sound System School, secara relevan. contact : 02193930555

Jeremy Sherrell: thanks

monmixer: mon_mixer@yahoo.com

monmixer: you can email me if you want more info anthony. I am a professional audio monitor engineer and would happy to answer you in due time. thank goodness for digital consoles eliminating all of the extra stuff but I'll help you out if i can. Now we have compressors and noise gates on every channel and don't have to deal with all those cables. We still need to understand what we are doing though and the host here is absolutely correct on the compressor..great advise

monmixer: Anthony..some consoles have I/O 1/4 inch inputs on each channel. that is where you need a ring tip sleeve. So say your inserting a piece of equipment on that channel such as a compressor/ graphic EQ or a noise gate the ring tip sleeves are for using the input for just what it says. I/O = in / out.it's a dual point connector.the other end of the cable has to have an an in and an out / 2 connectors. some consoles actually have an in and out for inserts so you would use 2 cables instead of ringtip

anthony dilauri: Is there any way you can explain to me about the back of the compressor/hookup and wires? I never really understood tip ring sleeve vs mono cable vs stereo and I have a feeling If you explain it it would finally be understood

anthony dilauri: wow that a good video thanks the first clear instructor I have heard in a long time

CMB Music Productions: @kiko3212 start out with the settings he mentioned int he video, then adjust until you get the sound you like.

kiks casta: hello sir this really a good video,,but i just want to ask you,on how to make a setting for a live p.a system cause ihave a small live band that is for hire i just want to know how to make a good setting's on compressor limiter,i hope you can help me sir thanks a lot,,

Aiiemusic: *EDIT* - How To "USE" A Compressor.

MrNitemare0: Compression=Automatic volume control...well put sir.

JC Haywire: Anybody who criticizes this video might not have a feel for education. I would like it to be a bit more technical--but that's already out there. Simplification is the basis of a sound education. We want newb audio engineers to have that sound foundation. Be patient with them. This guy's a good educator.

NLGuppy: lol @ 2:10. it automatic jumps to annother attack time. Where can i buy it?

TheShawnFussell: if you want to use a compressor with your DAW, either use inserts/sends/returns if your interface allows it, or you can go from your mic to the compressor and out to pre-amp/interface. If your using a phantom powered mic, you will need a mixer with 48V before going into your interface because most if not all compressors don't come with phantom power. They are not designed for being a pre-amp. You'd go mic to mixer(48V), mixer out to compressor, compressor out to interface.

TheShawnFussell: continued from post below.....the energy of the volume is still there and the way you manipulate the compressor gives you certain dynamic effects. Bass drums, if only 'volume automated', wouldn't punch at all beyond the source (the drum). The best way I've heard it out is this...sound makes a waveform...the waveform has a top and a bottom...compression lowers ceiling at how high the wave can go. Now imagine it as water. The water is still there, just more dense and powerful. less is more, too.

TheShawnFussell: lol. People are so mean sometimes. I don't think he's as 'simple' as you think. I think the man knows what he's talking about but he's simplifying for the sack of the noobies trying to grab a quick jump on learning the art of engineering. All in all, before I understood compression, I would of loved to just know what he was teaching here. One thing I would like to add to the noobie watching is that compressors do more than just automate volume. The energy of the volume is still there.,..........
