Looking for some advice for a member over on facebook - who I have advised to come here.
Long story short - he is an Organ pipe tuner with KS10s who is getting “warbling” tones when he tunes etc. Obviously sounds like feedback management kicking in - this has been confirmed by his Audi who apparently says: -
It IS the feedback manager that causes the high frequency warble distortion. However, there were problems. 1. She said that it cannot be turned off for just one program; that if she turns it off, it’s off for all programs. 2. With it off, there is almost constant feedback.
In my version of Target (7.1) I can access the Phonak P90RT test settings (I don’t have the noahlink yet so can’t access the customised KS10 screens) and can confirm that - unless feedback over-tuning is turned on in the “feedback and real ear test” tab, whistle block is available individually for all programs. Even if over-tuning IS set up you still have feedback control - only for the Music program. This would solve his problem I expect. He ‘just’ need a properly set up music program. If feedback is an issue even with that I suspect he needs more occlusive molds or similar
Anyone with KS10s able to access their target setting and confirm this is the same for the KS10s? I know that “whistleblock” is apparently called “feedback manager” and I know there is a feedback over-tuning option (my Costco audi played with it briefly while I was having my fitting for the KS10s) but no idea if it is called that in the software. I guess one possibility is that Costco version of target is customised to exclude this but why do that? The other possibility is his fitter/audi is wrong…
