does anyone else have this problem and has it happened on previous models that have Vocal harmony?

When you turn the Vocal harmony on and off, the microphone turns off for a moment even the Vocal harmony is reduced.
For ex. When on balance L63>H the microphone turns off when you turn Vocal harmony on and off, same is for normal (0) L-H balance.

Hi Johnypvable,

have you already updated your SX900 to the latest Firmware (V1.05)?

Yes Iím, itís a problem from the start. while singing when you turn the vocal harmony on or off, lead vocal is interrupted, even though VH is reduced, i.e. Balance Lead 63 - VH. The VH on and off function interrupts the microphone, does anyone else have this problem or is it set at the factory.

I don't have an SX900, but I can remember that a user had reported this problem in the past (the microphone drops out when the Vocal Harmony is switched on / off).

I was hoping that the current firmware would fix the problem.

If you have not already done so, you could reset the System settings (so that the Factory settings of the V1.05 update really take effect). Please refer to page 132 in the SX900 Reference Manual in this case.


Best regards,
Chris

I would ask the Yamaha Support in this case. The main Mic signal (Lead) should definitely NOT be interrupted while switching the Vocal Hamony on/off or while selecting a different VH setting.

Have you tried a different microphone? Does the problem occur with a dynamic microphone as well?

Hi Johnypvable,

just an idea:

If have the Noise Gate in the Mic Setting active, you could try to switch off the Noise Gate as a test (or reduce the Treshold value). Possibly the Noise Gate is causing the "dropouts" of the Mic signal you mentioned.


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Johnypvable, you must check what is assigned to the two live control (micro volume, ...) then you've to check your registration (micro settings, ....) and perhaps also change your micro settings, your VH settings, if you have always the same problem just make a total reset of your SX900; I wish you a nice sunday, all the best Patrick

Johny, how long does he stay off until he calls again? Can you calculate an average?

it lasts about a second, it happens while singing, it sounds like the microphone is interrupting which is not good for earning and it looks unserious😳

Friend, this is not a defect, this is the yamaha system. Whenever you turn the VH on and off it will happen.
It is an interruption of less than 1 second that causes a click on the audio of the voice. It is minimal but a little boring.
I always calculate the time of leaving and entering the VH. I've gotten used to it and it's not a headache for me,
but it would be good for yamaha to correct it in future models.
