This hasn't happened, however, I was wondering: Suppose I have a powered speaker, like Yamaha, QSC, etc. The amp in the speaker dies, or stops working for whatever reason. If that were to happen, could the speaker be powered via an external amp, and be used like a normal passive speaker?
At first I thought I imagined it. Then my lips got zapped through the mic. That I didnt imaging.
I also realized that I got a shock when handling the main outs from my mixer to my power amp.
And the chassis of the amp itself was energized.
I know some basics, but thats it. I can read and use a meter's basic functions. I understand AC/DC basics, and resistance. Kinda
Can I run a preamp into a (non powered) mixer?
What I want to achieve: I want to run my kick drum mic, my snare mic, and my Overhead mic, into the mixer and have a better amped sound by running the mixer into the preamp and then from somewhere into my Audio interface. ?
I hope this is not too confusing...
I'm new to the world of mixing and mastering and wanted to hear your thoughts on using Fishman Loudbox Mini amp with the settings turned off to mix and master. I understand that studio monitors that don't add anything to the mix are important to mix and master to the best result, and was wondering if the Fishman Loudbox Mini would be able to do that or if I really need to put more money into buying studio monitors...
I also have VIZIO - SmartCast 38" 5.1-Channel Soundbar System with Subwoofer if that's an option...
Thank you for your help!
1.Im looking into buying a tube amp for home practice and maybe some recording in my apartment.
Many new amps comes with speaker emulated output for recording purpose.
So when using this output will the amp speaker itself be silenced? (So that i can crank up the volume, for recording purpose, without waking the neighbours)
2. In short, what i want is a low wattage amp (combo or head) that a) can be used at home for recording purpose without the need for a speaker connected and b) for practice purpose at low volume with a speaker connected.
