Re: Source For Used DAW Computers?

What you say makes a lot of sense. I live in the Seattle area but I keep checking Craigslist and I haven't seen anything like what you're talking about... which I find REALLY odd--which is why I posted here. Is there another place I should be looking for the machines you mention? ---JC With my emplo...

Re: Source For Used DAW Computers?

Just out of curiosity, why do you use 5 or 6 PCs at a time? Many years ago I wired my entire house for recording. But this was before networking or PCs fast enough to have -one- central 'rack'. So I had several PCs, each with UAD cards and RME cards and network cards and VSL so I could do Cubase MI...

Source For Used DAW Computers?

I don't now how to word this but I -think- there are a lot of people in my boat so... I've got 5 or 6 bespoke PCs at any one time which I use for recording and composing. They are a hodgepodge of CORE I7s running Windows 10. Call it fate or statistics, several of them have died just in the past mont...

Please, be as snarky as you like. For whatever reason, I typed in the exact same key words and did not get those search results. So THANK YOU!

Replacement Wall Wart For Golden Age Preamp?

My Golden Age 73 Preamp is dead. The contact person in Sweden (Bo) says it's probably the wall wart... which says it's a 24v 1.75A power supply. (doesn't specify DC or AC).

Where can I get something like this? The distributor he gave me, hasn't responded.

TIA,

---JC

Re: Budget Boom Vocal Mic Stand Recommendation

Exactly! It's gotta be strong enough to not tip over. I've seen all manner of DIY deals made out of everything from steel to 2x4s (!!!) and I figured I'd ask the Interwebs before I went down that rabbit hole. Thanks! All I -really- care about is the boom -arm-. You don't happen to recall what model?...

Budget Boom Vocal Mic Stand Recommendation

It seems ridiculous to have to ask this after 20 years, but I need a new vocal mic stand for studio use (preferrably with a boom) sturdy enough to use with a decent condenser (faux U67 style) mic. The ones I've used until now have been these really old school Atlas stands that were probably designed...

By 'contact cleaner', you mine like Deoxit?

Sorry for being so thick. These things don't disassemble so easy.

Sticky Push Buttons

For some reason, several of my devices are starting to have this same issue. The little lighted push buttons are starting to 'stick'. They seem to electrically 'work' (ie. enabling/disabling when pressed), but the light stays lit unless I 'twiddle' it. There's no obvious cause (liquids, etc.) It jus...

Good idea. A bit too 'ghetto' for me, though. Hoping for a solution that is not noticeable.

PS: Am I the only one getting an 'Authentication Required' dialog when doing -anything- in this forum?

Gluing Foam Earpiece Sony Headphones V600

Hi, I've got Sony V600 headphones. The foam earpieces have cloth wrapping which holds them to the metal of each earpiece. But the material slides off ever few days. Any recommendations on a safe/secure glue to hold the cloth in place? By 'safe' I mean: a) Won't damage black metal b) Is easily remova...

Intriguing. Seems a bit pricey, though for my needs. Thanks. ---JC None of those lube solutions are conductive, just the opposite. Nearly all screw on capsules require a good electrical contact to the threads/casing. Insulating those threads with lubes may lead to other probles and noise. I use Stab...
