    I’m having trouble with my talkback mic. It is always live. I’m only using it to talk to the band but I’m having to put a cover over it so they can’t here FOH while they are playing. I’ve got the mic plugged into the talkback input on the console and it’s only being routed to the mixes. There’s a talkback button on the console and that button has no impact on the mic at all. How do I fix this?

    Hi Lauren,

    Is the talkback key always lit green? If you press it does it turn off?

    Thanks

    It is not always green. The light turns on and off when I press the button but that button/light don’t seem to have any impact on whether the mic is on since the mic is always on.

    Hi Lauren,

    Have you assigned the Talkback input to the talkback channel (found in Setup > Audio > Talkback) or to an input channel?

    Thanks

    I’ve got it assigned to the talkback channel. We’ve also tried assigning a different mic to the talkback channel in the set up but that doesn’t make any difference either.

    Hi Lauren,

    Could you please forward a link to a video of this behaviour to support.allen-heath.com?

    I will look into this further for you there.

    Thanks!

    that sounds strange… as temporarly workaround you can use a mic with a switch

    As Steffen says or just plug in a channel and use the mute button. Assign to what mixes you want it to go to. Most of my customers do that. They can’t grasp the push to talk concept for some reason. Plus the placement of the PTT switch on the SQ is not good.

    Talk into the mic while looking at the the input meters page. It must be accidentally assigned to an input channel. Maybe one that doesn’t have a strip.

    We ended up having to replace the console for an unrelated issue and the replacement talk-back is working just fine.
