I want to mod it, so when I'm tracking drums for my Polka Hip Hop album I can make hits and potato Perogies at the same time!


What you know about DJ Lawrence Welch?? And the Lady Gaga (Polka Face) remix??

I just want to clarify something about transfomrer impedance and loads. A transformer itself does not offer an impedance to the source. It just reflects the impedance of the load and changes the load impedance as seen by the source only if it is a step up or step down tranny. In other words, if you...

C1 is 120pf. Does changing its type really do anything significant, I was speaking to another tech about this and 120pf isn't exactly a ton of capacitance. C2 same thing, its more capacitance than C1 but what exactly are we tinkering with here? I would have thought we'd be changing actual cap values...

The 263x went like at least 10 db quieter with upgraded PSU caps! I want to b...

Thanks man! Did you take out your HF suppression completely?? I wonder what the stock vca and opamps sound like without it. I'm looking at the 263x guts right now and it pretty much mirrors the 163x in places. I wonder why the de esser needs HF suppression in addition to the hf suppression the actua...

What Up, Illacov?? I hear ya man. I've been looking inside mine and did quite a bit of mod, I think that the two caps in the audio path on the inputs will make a big difference and removing HF if you need the high is too easy. That PS mod is the biggest deal, that make a lot of difference. I put a ...

What up memphis! This is illacov from gearslutz! If you want to really be a cheap shark, just upgrade those big 470uf caps to 1000uf 35v caps! It cleans up a compressor that for the most part sounds fine (to my ears) stock but had too much noise at higher gains. I dig how the HF suppression can warm...
