Here is an update on my issue if anyone has any futher insight. So when I power the unit up, even if I am feeding it no signal and the threshold is at +10, which is its maximum setting. The gain reduction light is all the way to 25. After its on for about 5 minutes it starts to go down to zero gain ...

I may try this on a compressor i am going to recap, if there is no room on the underside of the pcb due to the way its mounted to the case is it fine to leave some longer leads on the electrolytics and wedging the bypass caps under there on the top of the board?

that is what I am thinking, the guy that I bought this from just sold me two cl-100s for 60 dollars which do work properly. I have doubled my outboard compressors in the last two days. :twisted:

If i move the threshold slightly it will all of a sudden be a huge amount of gain reduction, and this is regardless of where I set the ratio. I know how to work a compr...

symetrix 501 problems!

I just picked one of these up fairly cheap. It does not seem to be working properly though. It either does not compress or will give me like -18db of gain reduction. Sometimes way above where I know the level of the incoming signal is. This is pretty regardless of where I set my attack and release c...

I just got an audiofire 12 last week, I am real happy with it so far. It sounds better than my black lion modded delta 1010, and now I have more inputs!

"real world" reference monitors

what is everyone using, I am looking at options similar to avatone mix cubes, but I would like something active, and 400 dollars seems a little steep for something that seems to be geared toward not sounding good. What are people using, boomboxes? pc speakers? give me cheap ideas.
