Re: Anyone using dante?

Live sound guy here, and we're mostly a Yamaha shop. Yes, we use Dante all the time and it works great. Running CAT5e or fiber snakes instead of heavy old copper, what's not to love? Dante Virtual Soundcard is about $30, and very handy if you've got other Dante devices to connect to. Works best with...

Re: Just be glad it never came to this when starting up your DAW

Vinyl booting is great for when you want to skip loading some of the extensions. :wink:

Re: RADAR users: need help with session controller

Hmm... 9 pin to 25 pin. Reminds me of the old RS-232 days. Here's something you could do. Open up the 25 pin end, and see which pins are being used. Compare that to the published (everywhere) pinout for a 25-pin RS-232 serial connection. If it's all the same pins, then the other end is probably the ...

Re: Replacement rails for racks

Middle Atlantic seems to be the main company for that stuff.

You need to measure pretty careful to make sure you get the same dimensions, though. Measure from where the rails mount to where the threaded holes are, and find something that's the same. Don't ask me how I know that.

Re: ghost power supply buzz?

Told ya. 8)

Current rating is basically just buying whatever has a high enough current rating to pass the amount of current you'll need, worst case. Obviously higher current rating devices are bigger, more expensive, etc. so generally you buy just a little bigger than what you'll need.

Re: XLR input output & wire guage

No worries at all with heavier wire. It's mostly avoided just because the pennies add up and the heavier gauge isn't necessary for those signal levels.

Re: resources for learning how to recap and other gear maintenance

YouTube is a great resource for this kind of thing. Maybe not your exact speakers, but there are plenty of great channels that show how to do recapping and other repairs. Not to mention searching for your speakers might find some good content too. Fran, Electroboom, I'm more about watching machinist...

Re: Being an audio engineer and raising a family... how do you do it?

Personally, I've found that social media takes a lot of energy, and I can't devote much time to it, but I've seen others do it well. On the other hand you don't come home from social media with ringing ears and smelling like an ashtray. :lol: It's really tough these days - I'm in the live sound bus...

what is the consensus? Just Deoxit? Just distilled water?
I don't know about consensus, but as a professional electronics tech I did link to the Caig site up there somewhere, to the proper series of cleaner/lube for faders and controls.

Why would you lower the resolution before the processing is completely done?

and see, there's my problem right there.... I just keep buying more mics. :mrgreen:
As moderator I feel inclined to remind you that there is no such thing as too many mics.
Exactly. That's like telling a woodworker they own too many clamps. :lol:

I've got a pair of DT-250's in 80 ohm.
How big is the earhole on these (ie, the space that lies within the earpads)? It looks smaller that what I have now, & there's little space to spare in my current headphones.
1.5" x 2.25". The usual oval.
