    What have I done?

    Did you resolve this? If not look at the "rate" slider under the main window. It should be in the center, and indicate "1.0". ~d

    Using VS-2480 with HDMI external Monitor

    I've emailed the seller of that USB 'upgrade' for the 2480 asking him to post a demonstration video. His response was 'it's plug and play, no video needed'. Seems to me that of it really worked, he'd be happy to provide a video, and he would sell a boatload of them. That said, I doubt this...

    Tired of tangled cables?

    I concur with over/under coiling; it keeps the conductors from twisting. As for ties, a bunch of elastic hair ties with 1" dowels as toggles work swimmingly. d

    Who needs a stand when you have a paper clip? LOL

    Agreed, they are terrific. I have a pair. My only regret is that I didn't buy more when available. d

    Unusual Bass Technique

    I am a lefty as well. My dad wanted to switch me over, but my fourth grade teacher convinced him not to. I later made my living as a (French) horn player(which fingers with left hand!) for 35 years. In high school I learned to play guitar and bass right-handed-- putting my 'smart' hand on the...

    I tune the 'dropped' B to A-- in octave with the open A, then flip the tuner back to B and check harmonic. ~d

    5 string bass tuner ~ is it just me ?

    My tuners don't register the low B either. As there is a drop tuner on that string, I drop the B to A and tune in octaves with the A string. ~d

    cant get sound in reaper please help

    A thought: Since you do get sound in the headphones, the issue is probably not with REAPER, I wonder about the selection of output device in the Audio portion of Audio/MIDI Setup. Be sure that the output device there matches the REAPER audio device preference. Also-- I'm assuming USB connection...

    Dramatic soprano

    No I haven't-- and the farther you get from C major, the wilder the intonation gets. The 'period' instrument folks would like it. I've played natural horn(no valves) a lot-- there are some partials which have to be manhandled into compliance, and some are nearly unusable. For an example, check...

    Dramatic soprano

    I did a piano with organ recording in Chicago one August. We'd asked for the HVAC in the hall to be shut down as it was noisy. Well, it was a hot day, so an hour later the piano and organ no longer agreed on pitch. We scrapped ops for the day and had the HVAC restarted. Pitch returned to...

    Dramatic soprano

    Excellent advice, this. Best of luck in your career. I'm a horn player and could die a happy man in an opera orchestra. ~d

    AKG D112 Repair

    Rob is right-- it's already broken-- you can't do any more damage. A couple years ago, I bought a 'partially working' AKG P420 for almost nothing. The seller described the mic as 'losing signal after a few seconds. The problem was loose board to chassis screws causing a poor ground. Mic has been...

    Clickity Click

    Have you tried this without the surge suppressor? Your mention of the surge protector reminded me of a similar situation a few years ago. We were in the final stages of mastering for a flute, viola and harp recording when we started getting a random 'tick' on playback. Tick would appear in...

    I remember an emergence in Illinois circa 1990, I think. My area had almost none, but a bit east and south, there were so many the road felt greasy while driving, and the volume was deafening. TR, consider yourself fortunate having only one in your britches! ~dk

    How to fix messed up headphone cord?

    My dad used to fix this type of thing on the old-school kitchen wall phone. He'd work the bad bit all the way to the end of the cord, then growl at us to be more aware of things. The conductors get twisted so they don't lie right. It's really just cosmetic. Of course, many conductors lie! ~dk
