1 - MUSIC / SPOTIFY

Make sure you have your playlists downloaded (listen offline) so your party is not interrupted.
Our iPods are all on separate premium Spotify accounts for ease of use - with no ads. We run multiple events on any weekend, if you want to connect our iPods to wifi please check prior to the party so we can manage the accounts accordingly.

To add a Spotify playlist to one of our iPods read how to Share from Spotify - link button below.
The Spotify Code is the quickest and easiest way.

For ease of use we recommend setting playlists onto continuous play (repeat whole playlist), rather than Shuffle.

VOLUME NOTE
Kids party - volume 3 clicks from max
Adults party - volume 2 clicks from max
(max volume is not required, headsets have individual volume control.

2 - PLUG IT IN

Firstly watch the video instructions below on how to plug everything in before picking up your hire, so we can run through anything you need help with in person.

Please confirm pick up time with Mandy 0417 960 780

Before your guests arrive, please try it all out so that you can contact us with any questions.
We can be hard to reach on Friday and Saturday nights (busy DJing).

PLEASE count the headsets supplied and initial to confirm the number is correct, BEFORE your party commences. Any discrepancies can be very difficult to sort out after your guests have arrived and the party is underway.

- Plug transmitters into the power source. Place this out of reach of your party people. The kitchen bench for kids parties, and on top of the fridge for cocktail parties ha!
They should be turned OFF, then to set the range on LOW (200m). Please ensure any extension cords are safely out of the way or taped down so that dancers cannot trip. Three transmitters need to be on three different channels otherwise static will occur. Check the number display shows 1, 2 and 3. You can change the channel by pressing the small button.

- Plug audio cable into transmitter, RCA connection or 'red and white'.

- Plug the iPod/your phone/device or DJ mixer into the audio cable. You will require lightning adaptors if you wish to plug in an iPhone (no bluetooth capabilities).

- Once plugged in, PRESS PLAY on the music BEFORE you turn on any headsets.
Headsets will make a crackling interference static sound if they are turned on with no music playing.
Volume should be the same on all the channels, adjust iPod slider so that the volume is at 2 or 3 clicks below max.
If you have DJs performing, ask them to all check they are playing at the same volume and to not 'red line' as this causes distortion in the headsets.

- Headsets have volume, an ON/OFF switch, and the channel selector - which allows party people to switch between the three channels of music.

- It is important to have all three transmitters plugged in with music playing to avoid 'dead' channels with the interference static noise.

VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO PLUG IT ALL IN

3 - TROUBLESHOOTING

Any headsets with a crackly static noise DURING USE can be tagged out with yellow ribbon provided in the box.
We provide an extra headset or two in your hire in case this occurs.

THINGS NOT WORKING?
1 - Check the volume on the iPod/music source (max, minus 2 or 3 clicks).

2 - Check the audio cable is plugged in tightly to the iPod and the transmitter.

3 - Check that the transmitter is powered on, in low range.
Make sure all three transmitters are on different channels.
If you have two transmitters set to channel 2 for example, there will be interference and no music.

4 - Check there is no equipment that operates on a radio frequency nearby. Walkie Talkies etc?
We have found that Busselton can be problematic sometimes, unfortunately this is out of our control as if something nearby is using the same frequencies as the silent disco it will cause interference. The disco uses 923, 924 and 925 MHz.

- Swap equipment out one element at a time to figure out what is not working.

1. The music source/iPod (switch it over for another one that is working on a different channel)
2. The audio cable (keep the same iPod but swap cable)
3. The transmitter (there is usually a spare transmitter in the box, if your hire isn't on an ultra busy date)

And if you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact us. We want your event to rock!
Best to try it all out so you can get in touch before the party begins. But..... my number is 0417 960 780.

4 - RETURNING

At the end of the event, switch all headsets off and then turn the power on the transmitters to OFF before unplugging any cables.

Please count the headsets again before returning.
You need to count before the commencement of the party, to avoid discrepancies when returning.

Check the Job Sheet and fill in the table to make sure you have returned everything (extension cords are the sneaky ones that forget to be included in the return quite often).
Mark the paper tab on the box with the number counted, and the name of the person that counted each box.

You will be charged $110 for any headsets that are lost or damaged.

Please text me 30 to 60 minutes before your pre-arranged time for returning equipment with your ETA. I ask that you respect my time and schedule and arrive within 20 minutes of the agreed ETA.

If headsets are returned with excess glitter/face paint from children's parties, there may be an additional cleaning cost.
