Hmm. I don't recall talking about un-true-bypassing a new DMM, but I'm right there with you in the fact that I really like the dirty sound of the preamp in the DMM, so I am very happy with my UNTRUE bypass vintage DMM. Are you sure that your new DMM isn't already with the preamp in the circuit? Just...

You can simply use three SPST stompswitches (if you want LEDs, use DPDT) and have each switch inline between the input and the output. I'll draw something up quickly.... http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3222/2674227511_c35ec79c73.jpg Because there are no hardware-based 3-position footswitches, you wou...

If you're using a powered (amplified) mixer to listen to what you're recording, you hopefully can use headphones while tracking, and just turn the master volume level down on the amplifier/mixer. You do NOT want to unplug speakers from an amplifier that is on . If you run an amplifier of any sort wi...

Anything redeeming about an old Tapco 6200A?

I'm curious about the electronics in early-80's budget boards like the 8-channel Tapco 6200A. One Google search tells me that the 6200B has transformers in the pres, but the 6200A does not. Other than the lack of iron, is there anything special about these things that's worth canibalizing? Not that ...

Over the years, I have developed a sort of philosophy with the racks. I have made each rack semi-modular in one crucial way, and that's made life much easier. All of our racks at Tremolo Lounge are separate standalone racks with wheels. What I did was to very neatly wire all of the units to a patchb...

Roland RS-09 synth Service Manual/Schematic?

I'm still on the lookout for a schematic or a service manual for the old Roland RS-09 Organ/String synth.

Does anyone have any leads?

I would especially like to have a look at the Ensemble chorus circuit.

Thank you

That makes me think.... I often will use compressed air to blow dust out of faders and the general innards of electronic stuff, and I usually use De-Oxit or Pro Gold to clean and protect connections/pots. Is denatured alcohol on it's own good to use for cleaning this stuff? Is it just as well to use...

Are you talking about these?

I heard that small guitar amps sounded really good on them and that you could use them to drive in a nail, if you had to.

Got to love Photoshop..... hee hee.

I have no problem with using external midi interfaces with PTLE. I'm currently using an M-Audio Axiom 25 and a Behringer BCF2000 control surface, which has MIDI in and out as well.

MSE, your story reminds me of the long-lost studio cat we used to have at Tremolo Lounge. His name was Jefferdog and he had such a great facial expression that you'd think he was part human. One session I did for an art-indie-rock male/female duo called Mecca Normal back in the early 90's had the tw...

Parallel Drum bus compression, and not squashed into oblivion.

Bass guitar.

Vocals.

Any kind of bus compression (vocal submixes? Acoustic guitars ? la ELO)

I hope it comes with the 1/8" 9VAC adapter!

Toronto rocks! Bloor Street is a very cool place to hang out. You can just walk down the street. Many great bars and restaurants. There are a few clubs too. Queen Street is also good, though that is more commercial. Lots of stores and some bars and restaurants, but more big and trendy stuff. There a...
