  1. Ermer, do you have your helmet and armour padded out to stop feedback? Impressive if you're managing to get full volume on app and speaker without issue[emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. Managed to try the new suggested settings this weekend - worked great. Have lost the cool electronic radio/diatorted sound though to get there, which is a shame. No feedback and the public were clearly hearing me fine outdoors as they weren't responding with 'what?!' constantly. Must admit, makes for a much funner troop when you can converse with people. Love having the background loop adding to the authenticity too. (agree on sliders , often have trouble moving them on ipod touch). Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah, ive had a microfiber cloth stuffed into the chin void to help with dampening for a while, sure that helps. But you're right, playing out of kit and adjusting the settings can lead to a perfect distorted TK sound, but once kitted up, the dynamics drastically change! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. Shall try these setring this weekend. Initial test is good (always is out of kit.....) Just a massive shame it seems to take out all the cool distortion that i loved about this app. Also coming to the conclusion that the newly recommended amazon mono wired splitter is garbage. I just get constant drop outs and crackles. Wireless mic with cheap splitter works perfectly, just get that split second delay....... [emoji21] So frustrating but i think this is my best option without spending a small fortune on Tramp. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. Newest ipod touch with wireless mic and splitter, same as I've used since the app was first released. Need to find time to kit up and test all settings. Always sounds great sat on the sofa at home, but always plays up as soon as kitted up! [emoji38] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. Also get a little screach like sound after finishing any words [hope you don't think i'm moaning Andrew, just a little frustrated at the mo as don't want to have to resort to mic direct to aker like i'm having to do]
  7. Another troop, still struggling with this [only the recent updates and since updating ios, worked perfectly until recently] Voice kept clipping, randomly, even the background loop would sometimes do the same. Possible lint in the headphone port?? Any easy way of checking? Also, since the latest ipod/ios update and Trooper talk update, my ipod was almost dead flat after only 2 hours!! [airplane mode, brightness all the way down]. Never been this bad before. The ipod is only used for the app, so battery should be pretty decent for a fairly new device. Anyone else suffer battery problems?
  8. Did a troop at the weekend, but didn't have time to get the new update set up. So went with direct to aker. But, thought I'd play the background loop direct out of the ipod speaker, as done before when i was having issues. Not sure why, but it times out and closes the screen thus stopping the background chatter from playing. Ie doesn't keep the app active in lock screen mode. Used to work ok, is this an update thing? Realise it's not essential, but is handy to be able to play the loops occasionally. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. Ipod gen 6 with the newly mentioned amazon bought splitter and aker mic. Also tried with old trusted splitter and my wireless mic that has always worked. That still clipped my voice with screeches and fedback badly. Hate to say it, but the first version of this always worked ok for me. Seems too many options now? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. Hate to say, but i had a shocker yesterday. Using the newly approved amazon cable. Kept cutting out, loud pops and had terrible feedback. Ended up just going with mic direct into aker. Zero feedback and louder. Need to have a play, but always seems to go pear shaped once in the armour! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  11. I went the ipod touch route solely for this. Ordered cable too, cheaper drom amazon usa for us Brits Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. Good news. I have a cable that works with my stereo wireless mic. Its my wired aker mono mic i struggle to get to work. Not 100% happy with wireless as there is a very slight delay. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  13. Does this splitter work direct with a mono mic or stereo? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  14. Wow, i was thinking of getting the cable after having problems with my budget splitter at my last troop - $63 to ship a little cable to the UK??!! [$85.80 in total with the discount] Unreal??
