Re: [vox-tech] high-pitch noise when trying to raise the volume

heh.  thanks for the compliment.  :)   but i think any electric engineer,
public speaker, or even someone who listens to a lot of rock music would be
able to identify "unbearable high-pitch noise when I raise the volume".
that's feedback.  it's unmistakable, and you did a good job describing it.

it's what you get when you take the output signal and feed it back into the
input.  in your case, the speaker output was being input into the
microphone, which was being pushed back through the speaker, which was being
picked up into the microphone, which was pushed back through the speaker,
etc...   :)

one way to deal with that is to turn off the input, meaning, either turning
the mic off (disconnecting the microphone) or turning the mic level down.

The mathematics of physics has become ever more abstract, rather than more
complicated.   The mind of God appears to be abstract but not complicated.
He also appears to like group theory.  ---  Tony Zee's  "Fearful Symmetry"
