Does anyone know how to set up a BC3 to use with an ES6?

I have a ES6 and the PLG150-VL expansion board. The board and the BC3a came with instructions on setting up the BC3 for use both with internal sounds and VL board voices. I am attaching a pdf of the BC3 guide. I noticed when I first started using mine that you have to play around with the gain and the offset controls on the side of the headset until you kind of find a “sweet spot”. Also, be aware that the drain cap on the end of the mouthpiece seems to control the “air flow” through the device. Experiment around with it until it does what you want. It sure makes my wind voices come to life! Hope this helped!

BTW - I haven’t messed around with using the BC3 with just the internal sounds ... so I probably won’t be a lot of help there. It is on my short list of things to play with!

I can’t find on the new Motifator site where this is, but here is an article that was posted by one of the GURUs a while back.  I use the BC3 with the stock sounds and some work well and some don’t.  You just need to play around.

Msr, you said that some sounds don’t work well with BC3. You should be aware that not all sounds on VL board are created for BC3. Preset bank 1 and 3 are the same sounds, but bank 1 is intended to be TouchEG controlled (by keyboard), while bank 3 keep sounds tailored for BC3. Also, some voice libraries that you could find for VL (like Bad Mister’s VL tutorial) not have all sounds created for breath control (like some synth or guitar sounds, for instance).
