    ART PRO MPA 2 - XLR chanel 1 is not working

    Here's what I have on the ART MPA. It is listed as the Gold version, so I don't know how similar or different it is from the standard DMPA II. One thing you should consider is whether any differences between the two versions are significant to your service questions.... it's kind of hard to do...

    The Chair

    Well... I'm a big (310 lb) guy. Decided to try a heavy-duty expensive chair (over $500) built for recording. It was built like a tank and very high-quality. Sadly, I ended up not liking it, and shipped it back. Lesson learned: try the chair IN PERSON because.... all the ads, testimonials, and...

    A Sad Day For Stereomanuals Customers

    I know that having good manuals and schematics such as he produced certainly made any troubleshooting task easier. At times, I have worked with other sources of documentation that was so poor, it almost made me stop working on a particular project. Starliner

    Multiple Tape Decks and Tracks - mixer connections

    I'm in the process of drawing a master cable layout (need a giant monitor to avoid constant re-zooming the views). Ordering the max size 13" x 19" printer paper for my printer so I can see all the details. I can see the patchbay necessity, and probably multiple patchbays... have four now. Starliner

    90 degree xlr hack

    I have a pair of Roland VS-2480's and a Roland SI-24. These have 8 XLR's each on the top surface. The XLR's in these units have pin sockets configured roughly at the 10 o'clock, 2 o'clock, and 6 o'clock positions, with the key at the 12 noon position. I wanted 90-degree male XLR's with the...

    Low output mics and in-line preamps

    tmix, Without looking at any specs, my knee-jerk reaction is I would be worried about extra noise. Starliner

    Low output mics and in-line preamps

    TalismanRich, I might add the MOTU 896 mk3 Hybrid has an input impedance of 10k on the TRS, and 2k on the XLR's. This info is not in the owner's manual... I got it from inquiring with MOTU in a Tech Link online.

    Multiple Tape Decks and Tracks - mixer connections

    Sorry... I guess it's not the best-worded question. The multiple tape decks are for using the different tape sources (more for playback than recording) to get signals into the system for editing and recording to different mediums. Most signals will end up going into a PC at some point for...

    Low output mics and in-line preamps

    Very interesting points... thanks to all for your replies! Now it makes more sense! The impedance-matching function of the Z model always seemed to be a good idea to me. I do know sometimes it is difficult to get certain specs from manufacturers, even thought they are useful and sometimes...

    Low output mics and in-line preamps

    One thing I've never really understood... if a preamp is normally used on a mic, why do you need TWO preamps in the chain (i.e.: an added pre, like a Cloudlifter). Aren't most preamps powerful enough to compensate for a low-output mic? And, how much more noise is added with the second preamp?

    Multiple Tape Decks and Tracks - mixer connections

    It's possible I may bounce tracks. But I have the ADAT / Firewire module only... the analog module is made of unobtanium now. The A&H will be connected to a PC via an RME HDSP9632 interface, probably via optical.
