Alright so another problem im encountering is noise when I run an microphone to XLR into the eventide CH1 , CH1 out to the PA .. Im getting way too much noise (buzzing) to be normal…
A way Ive dealt with is my using a microphone to an unbalanced line into CH1, unbalanced line out to the PA.. this rids about 90 per-cent of the noise. IF i use an XLR anywhere in the chain the noise returns.
I found wiring the eventide through the effects loop in the mixer with 1/4 inch or XLR cables works without the noise… I would like the eventide first in the chain for maximum juicy effect!
It sounds like you have a problem with balancing/unbalancing. If you connect an unbalanced line to either the input or output XLR, all three pins of the XLR must be connected or you will get a lot of hum and buzz. Typically, you connect pins 1,3 to ground and pin 2 to signal.
Beyond this, be aware that the XLR input on the unit is a line input rather than a microphone input, so you will not get best results unless you use a mike preamp.
