What is the squelch feature used for on my wireless system?
Wireless microphones are excellent tools for public speaking; handheld, clip-on and head-worn microphones all have benefits depending on the venue. Unfortunately, one of the more useful mic features – the mute switch – has always added complexity to wireless systems, especially if the audio system does not have an active sound operator at the mixer. When using a clip-on or head-worn microphone the mute switch is located on the body-pack transmitter that is usually worn near the user’s waist. This switch can pose a problem if the user has the transmitter covered with clothing or vestments. What is more, the visual indication of the mute status is often not easy to see regardless of whether the transmitter is covered or not.

After years of honing my preferred guitar tones, I’ve had to adapt them to different settings, from full amps and mics in the recording studio, to plug-ins, to live performances with and without amps. Each of these settings offers a different curveball to overcome, and sometimes you need to adapt your sound accordingly.
One thing that really created a need to have an ampless rig and be as portable as possible was doing fly-in tour dates and performing with symphonies. Stage volume is crucial to a symphony so it is preferred to not have a blaring guitar amp on stage. I’ve tried several different pedals with amp modeling, but nothing was getting the tone that I really wanted. They all fell short in some way. So I switched my focus to acquire a few pedals that are exceptional at what they do, rather than settle for a jack-of-all/master-of-none pedal.
