I'll also note that the IS400 is also a digital system and not compounder dependent.

Just to clarify, the Lectro is not really a digital system: The RF and the transmitted audio are completely analog. The audio however goes through a DSP prior to transmission (A/D/A), then again after reception (A/D/A), negating the need for a compander.

But if you're playing heavy metal, it's a compounder.   Very Happy

Just to add to this, I want to point out that what we are doing is NOT a DSP compandor. Instead, it is a quadrature mirror filter arrangement, and it can only be done in the digital domain. What is transmitter over the air is only the error signal from a predictive algorithm.


D*mn Karl, gotta get all technical on him eh?  lol The man is just looking for a wireless guitar rig so he can do this... But you are right!

Well I stand corrected and thank you all. So let me clarify. First, I'll never be able to jump that high again, and the last time I did was in 1970. The guy in the picture must be able to jump very, very high. I see he's being held down with a cable.

Also, compandor is not spelled compounder, unless you're very old, and the IS400 transmits and receives using smoke and mirrors.  Very Happy

Bob,
 This topic has gotten rather amusing.  And don't say you can't jump that high.  I will send tinker bell your way and all you have to do is think happy thoughs and away you go!   Laughing

I think that's a "stage dive bungee cord" so just when he's about to land in the crowd, he'll rebound and snap back to the stage  Shocked

Oh yeah - the age old debate about the spelling of "compandor". As it turns out, it's an old way to spell it, and was used by some of the companies that manufactured the parts in the 1980s. It's one of two ways to spell it, along with "compander". Last I checked, the latter is used about 90% of the time... we're one of the few holdouts. Cool

Here's a short clip of me jumping when I was about 40 years younger.

I've used the Shure SLX for a couple of years now. I love that it uses AA batteries and they last a 4-5 hour gig no problem. I've never had any problems with it and when I bought it for $529, it came with the rackmount kit and front antennas. I have not noticed any change in tone from plugging direct into my amp. I am very very pleased with this unit. Very Happy

OK - I've used my newfangled rechargeable 9 volt batteries in the transmitter a few times now and they work! However they don't last very long and you might need to change a battery at the end of your 2nd set. I did get one to last a full 3 sets one time.


Gene, what exactly are you using?
