« on: August 31, 2021, 02:18:30 PM »

You'll need a mixer connected to the Genos. Not sure if anyone has attempted this.

I tried using this ProMix 3 channel Microphone Mixer but it is giving more feedback problems.

Hi Sunny,

this is a Line level Mixer. It is not suitable to connect Microphones and has no Channel EQs.

What you need is a standard Mixer that has balanced Microphone inputs (XLR), an Input Gain control, a Channel EQ (Low/Mid/Hi, the mid band ideally should be "semi-parametric, so that you can adjusted the center frequency) and of course a Volume control for each channel. For example, something like this:
>>> https://www.thomann.de/intl/alesis_multimix_8_usb_fx.htm?i11l=en_GB%3AGB.EUR
>>> https://www.thomann.de/intl/yamaha_mg10_xu.htm?i11l=en_GB%3AGB.EUR

I recommend to buy a Mixer that has also built in Effects (like the two linked above). Mixers without Effects are usually cheaper, but if you want to connect microphones directly to an external PA system later, you will probably be missing the Effects (e.g. reverb, delay).

Since such Mixers usually are designed in Stereo, for connection to the Genos Mic Input use only one of the Master Output sockets of the Mixer. It is best to use a balanced cable here (XLR or TRS), depending on the Output sockets of the Mixer.


Best regards,
Chris

Another option is to go with a dual, triple etc. channel wireless system, which plugs into the mic input on the back of the Genos.

Hi Sunny

I have used a 2 mic wireless system on Genos and CVP Clavinova very successfully with volume control for each mic.

Regards

Hi Sunny,

yes, such a dual, triple, etc. wireless microphone system could be an option if the receiver, in addition to the separate outputs for each microphone, also has a "mixed" output.

Please note, however, that you can then only control the volume of the individual microphones separately, not the sound. Usually you need different EQ settings for each singer, i.e. each microphone. And for this, as mentioned, you need an additional external Mixer.


Best regards,
Chris

I Wish Genos 2 had more inputs, like 4 or more. 
This would really make it good!

Friends,
 Thaks for your advice. I tried dual corclless microphones with Genos, The sound is fine. I think cordless mikes are best option. Please suggest best cordless mikes 2 or 4 in one for vocals.

Thanks,
Sunny

Not sure what is your need or application . .  ..

I have used one mic connected directly to the Genos . . . . and other mic's connected to a mixer or to the bose L1 sound system (which is also connected to Genos)

It looks like the wireless multiple mics is a good option . . . . looking forward to see good brand names recommended here  . . . .

thanks

As usual, Sunny you aren't telling us exactly what you are trying to achieve. Please be more detailed in your requests because you would be surprised the number of times members have offered up great answers that are FAR more difficult than they need to be. Providing you with a solid suggestion is difficult unless we know your endgame.

Talk to us. What are you trying to do?

I think Sunny is very clear on what he wants:

"I want to use dual microphones with Genos. Is there any device that can connect 2 or 3 microphones to single microphone input ?".

And many replies with good answers: use a mixer OR a dual/tripe/quad wireless microphone system.
All answers are correct. I use a dual wireless microphone system.
