Re: Presonus Eureka DIY Mods / Revive Audio Mods worth it?

SO yeah — I've decided to re-evaluate some input-channel purchases... not gonna send these off, but I did buy some LT1357 ICs (because they're super cheap) to pop into the Eurekas to see if that makes any notable difference in the units. Also, on the subject of their sound... the preamp pots are a l...

Re: Check in Thread

We've had issues for years with police abusing stop and frisk policies to harass the black community. We've had issues for years with heavily armed police killing people with mental health issues. Wow... that reality-check really hits me in the gut. All over the US, we have (as I'm sure you know) a...

Re: Check in Thread

Yeah — good call on starting this thread! I often think about how this message board accounted for 90% of my web browsing time, back in the early 2000's... and then things really tapered off in the later 2000's / early 20-teens... and it always made me a little sad. That's because the kinds of folks...

Re: Coronavirus Plans (what are yours?)

This place needs a like button. This is awesome! I'm in the midst of trying to figure out MS Teams so that my writing partner and I can watch a rough cut of a series we're scoring. Trying to set it up so we can have a video call with the rough cut streaming from one of the computers. My brain is no...

Presonus Eureka DIY Mods / Revive Audio Mods worth it?

Hi there —  I have a couple of persons Eureka channel strips, and: they're older so they probably could stand to have the pots shot out with some contact cleaner They've never been "really great" sounding... just "pretty decent" to my ears I've hard positive things online about the DIY mods, and I s...

Re: Logic Pro X on MacBook Pro to Facebook Live stream

Do you happen to own a DSLR camera? In prep for my own Facebook live stuff... I recently learned that you can totally rig up a Canon EOS dslr as a webcam via a couple of free apps... it works great & looks amazing. I realize that rigging up through Logic & extra drivers + firing up some freeware app...

Re: Logic Pro X on MacBook Pro to Facebook Live stream

I'm sure that the paid service (Audiomovers) is elegant and robust, but depending on the needs— I can imagine that being too pricey for some folks. Is there any reason why someone wouldn't just use the Soundflower driver? I suppose the setup is slightly more involved than Audiomovers. I believe you'...

Re: Chairs?

If you're concerned about the price of a factory new Aeron, I strongly recommend a used one. I bought my used / reconditioned Aeron model B in 2008, and other than a little (expected) wear & tear on the armrests & lumbar pad, it's in solid shape.

Re: MADIXtreme Help?

Best of luck on the test!

Also, it occurs to me that the PCIe slot / computer could be a potential factor. If your alternate card behaves the same way, you might see about trying a different PCIe slot in the same machine, or an alternate host machine (if possible.)

Re: MADIXtreme Help?

I don’t own one of these, so I can’t speak to exact experience, but from other similar situations (apogee symphony pcie) I think your troubleshooting is pretty sound. If you have the means to try this, maybe it’s worth buying a used MADI extreme pcie on eBay/reverb & trying it out. They are super ch...

Stewart PA-100 or Stewart PA-200 are small half rack no fan power amps.
Wow! I hadn't thought about those! I'll keep them in mind for other projects, in the near future!

Re: Fanless Pure Power Amp Recommendations?

All good input! I got really lucky today, and found another Hafler PRO2400 for a decent price on Ebay. Was about to pull the trigger on a used Bryston 3B (don't need the power of the larger amps), but I think I'm all set with the new amp!
