This might be a little too low-tech for your tastes, but you could just use 2 DPDT footswitches. Wire the amp outs to the first switch and have it select either speaker A or the next switch, which selects either speaker B or speaker C. The downside to this would be that you would have to remember wh...

Btw, if you want to do the two-snip mod but keep the gate you can replace the gate threshold pot with a 10k audio pot with built-in switch. The shack has them, but you'll need to remove some material from the pot connections to get them to fit. I wrote an unfortunately long-winded post on how to do ...

Thanks for your help! I didn't know they were called tactile transducers. One quick google turned up the speakers I originaly found, which are these... http://www.vidsonix.com/vidsonixnew/info_vxgh72.htm ...which aren't as cool as the Clarks but are quite a bit cheaper. I'll be using them for more e...

Help me find these speakers?

Maybe somebody here can help me. A while back I was doing some research into plate reverb parts when I found these kickass coneless speakers, the sort that attach directly to the inside of a wall or other rigid surface to cause said surface to vibrate. From what I remember they handled about 30w, we...

Re: SUB KICK DIY layout

I had to do a session a while back with a peavey 520i on kick, which worked ok but had a bit much of that heavy metal clicky thing going, so I rigged up an xlr plug to a couple of aligator clips with some crapy speaker wire I had lying around and clipped it to a 12" speaker in an old univox guitar c...

Re: Alesis 3630 Mod-Mod

Oh yeah, by the way, the original knobs won't work if you use the 'shack pot, unless you cut a notch down the shaft. Personaly I like having a couple of mismatched knobs on the front. Lets 'em know you've got something special. Oh, and neither myself, tapeop, or its message board is liable for any d...

Alesis 3630 Mod-Mod

An option to consider if you're thinking about doing the 2 snip mod... There's an easy way to do the mod and keep the gates accessible if you don't mind a little bit of soldering/desoldering. Whatcha do is use a potentiometer switch, which is a switch that connects to the back of the pot and is enga...

Re: mic preamp ergonomics

This might not be an elegant solution to your problem, Rene, but it worked for me once and it might work for you if you have a small setup. I went out and bought some rack rails and intalled my rack gear in them. I then built a crude 2x4 frame around the rails and reinforced the joints with little L...

Re: wirin' a mic

Hey there. Do you have a multimeter? Good. Set it to read resistance (ohms, the little horeshoe) and test the three pins to each other. The pin that reads no connection to the other pins but has no resistance to the chasis corresponds to pin one (ground) of an XLR plug. The other two pins should rea...

Re: Yamaha now marketing the 'speaker-as-kick-mic'

KRza, I use a mic cable with the female end cut off and aligator clips attached to the wires. I don't connect pin one (ground) to anything and I connect pins 2 and three to the positive and negative of the speaker cone. I'll then switch 2 and 3 to see which way is more in phase with the rest of the ...

Re: pacific pro audio mics

I own an LD2ube and 2 LD1s as well. The LD2ube is a wonderfull mic for the price. The nine pattern switch on the PS is really handy for dialing in the desired amount of room tone with out having to leave the control room to adjust the mic. I used to work in a studio with 414s and NT2s for large diap...

Re: SM Pro Audio Pro 8 Channel Microphone Preamp opinions?

The online manual for the smpr8 sez that it uses NJM4580 opamps. I did a few quick searches and found a site claiming that a Burr-Brown OPA2134 works as a direct replacement for the NJM (although they were talking about a different piece of gear alltogether). Now I'm no expert, but I looked at the s...
