Performing a soundcheck with Roadie Coach

Modified on Mon, 11 Sep 2023 at 01:57 PM

Roadie Coach has a dual microphone system. The contact microphone records your instrument and the directional microphone records your vocals. Before you start recording, you'll want to make sure that the microphones are leveled. Performing a soundcheck will help avoid clipping or insufficient audio pickup. 

To perform a soundcheck with Roadie Coach, attach Roadie Coach to your instrument and follow the steps below: 

  • Press the power button to turn on Roadie Coach 
  • Click on "Recorder" on the home screen to enter the recording screen 

  • Hit the "Soundcheck" button right next to the "Record" button and make sure you have headphones plugged into the AUX OUT
  • If Stereo mode is toggled on, you can select between 3 combined input options:
    • Contact mic and vocals mic
    • Contact mic and AUX IN
    • Vocals mic and AUX IN
  • Should you prefer to record in Mono, you can select between contact mic, vocals mic, and AUX IN

  • After selecting your desired input, adjust the levels to your desire
  • If the audio is clipping, a red line will appear above the VU meter. To solve this, just lower the mic volume and then press the red line above the VU meter to remove it

Once you're happy with the sound, exit the soundcheck screen by pressing the back arrow on the top left corner of the screen to begin recording.
