Z- I was going to use a pair of SC1-MK2 pre's because they are clean, cheap, upgradeable, and fit vertically in my 2U chassis. And since they are fully functioning preamps I can use them as such with the flick of a switch. The project is on hold for now until I get the panel layout finalized and sen...

A couple of 9' 1x6s, some leftover laminated MDF, four big 'ol bolts, a bit of corkboard and some woodglue... http://usera.ImageCave.com/thesimulacre/DIY/speaker%20stands.jpg I just traced the outline of the speaker directly onto the work. I should probably finish them, aesthetically speaking. They ...

I accidentally made almost perfect water sounds in a frenzy of "raw material" recording a couple of years ago. I even labeled it, but cannot remember if it was modulated delay or delayed modulation. I do know that a certain extreme of settings (probably time) water sounds just started bubbling out o...

Thanks Scummy & Gabereal, B> My only lead on those equations was PIE or something, and the results were lacking in wiki, so I appreciate the actual calcs. PS how is life treating you?

So I just picked up a crap-ton of resistors, and it seemed to really have put a hurt on the guy at Fistel's electronic cavern... so I really don't want to return them if I don't need to but here's the thing. They are all 1/4W. All of the other designs I have seen have what look like at least 1/2W re...

In response to the mp3 issue... There is a free 1Gb file server known as www.box.net that I think would work for this application... I'm too tired to figure it out tonight, but Andrew if you want to set one up (since I may end up with nothing to contribute musically and thus no desire to move files ...

Just used it yesterday on some "spur-of-the-moment" oohs from a group of four of us. It worked out well because one of us toward the center (I'm not naming any names, Chris) was over-doing it a little. *Chuckles* I think the combo was a TLM-something and "old bendy"-- an older Rode that got knocked ...

It will, for sure...thanks ashcat! In this pursuit I stumbled upon a bending thread for my Synsonics drums, and a link to a USA-based manufacturer of a simplified MIDI-to-relay interface. Any opinions on reed vs. optical relays? Until I have the cash, this is going to have to tide me over: http://us...

Hey Lord Byron! I didn't know you were still around. Thanks for stirring the 'ol pot of brain stew. Funny, the thought of using a transistor as a switch crossed my mind at the same time as Mr. Mimms, because that is the chapter I went over about 15 times trying to understand. The thing is, while dra...
