Out of control vocoder.


Last week I did a revival and had problems with a keyboard. Every time I listened to it all I heard was the cymbals. Well I thought I had plugged something in wrong. The OH and HH mics were ok? All other drum mics seemed ok?
Oooo thats a pretty vocoder sound now and then back to the cymbals again. Oh dear its a real vocoder and its keying to the cymbals. The cymbals and the vocoded vocals seem to be the same level.
So do any of those proximity switches for mics work well. Or do I need to pull a gate out of the rack and put it on stage. ie. Mic -> Pre -> Gate -> Vocoder -> Keyboard?
I'll be running this group again in late August.
