Okay so whenever we're at band practise and we run the mic into the pa system and our singer starts singing she gets almighty feedback and if we turn it down we can't here her.


How do I stop this happeneing?


thanks

Adjust the levels, stop pointing it at amps, adjust the master volume and the mic volume, neither should be overly high.

Make sure the mic isn't getting covered and do everything metacarpi said.

If you practice with the PA places as monitors, you'll struggle. Set up like you have an audience. Keep the mic pointing back and, if all else fails, tweak the EQ to compensate for the room's natural acoustics.

Graphic Equalizers are designed for this. It's usually one band of frequencies that cause the problem and the EQ allows you to attenuate that band eliminating the problem. Omin directional mics are often an issue too in close quarters as they pick sound up from all around. A uni-directional mic can help with this.
Moving on.....

Yeah guys thanks (:

I'll try those

But the problem is that we practice in a pre set up practice room that we pay for so it's got all the stuff in there already


How do I turn the mic sensitivity down?

You see there are a few mic inputs on the front? With a load of dials above it? Look for the volume one there and lower it. Compensate with the master volume dial.

Also, make sure your levels are all at max or anything like that.
