6 Klark Tecknik DN27A in for work. Its amazing to me the changes over the years. 2 units have input transformers and output transformers. The two will transformers will get a electrolytic cap change and general inspection. Of the four remaining, the most similar two will get Jensen input and output transformers, cap change and inspection. One unit had permanent power cord modification, that is going to get changed back to the original style power connector.
I'd really appreciate recommendations on modifying a trident 65 series power supply
plus any recommendations on replacing op amps or power capacitors if someone actually had 'em done and experienced improvements on the sound. My tech is very good with anything on his field, with is fixing any sort of electronic equipment, but has no recommendations to make, in this case. Thanks
Just thought Id see if anyone has modded a RODE NT1a
If so . Was it an easy DIY ?
I have one here that Id like to love more.
I used it a lot when first bought and It helped me get some really harsh mixes
through my daw.
I would like to see it be more useable.
I have recently acquired a 24CH, 200B, with the two sweeping mid EQ's.(for $300 I got the mixer and a bunch of other gear). There is no hum in the power supply or the board, no scratchy pots or sliders, and everything seems to work well. I want to use it for recording, using a line off the INSERT jack to LINE IN on my converter.
I have 4 specific questions.
If I were to take it to my local equipment genius and ask him to upgrade 2 or 4 channels:
I came across the Black Lion Audio website. They make modifications to gear to improve it. I don't necessarily think there is a big problem with the gear I have, but their offerings have peaked my interest and have got me wondering how much of an improvement these mods would make.
I have an AI-3 and 828MKII, both of which they do modifications forand it looks like they change out the opamps.
I was just wondering if anyone has used them or has heard some before and after comparisons of equipment they have modified.
Just snagged a pair of them. Does anyone know what the REAL mods are used to get these to sound better? I've already ripped off the basket-grille and reduced the mesh to single-ply... Does anyone have that magazine issue laying around or anything? I went to Oktavamod.com but the owner wisely doesn't share his component-level secrets with the world.
Does anyone ELSE have them? :-)
Sorry for the lousy topic, I know it's been up before, I just couldn't find anything quite what I was looking for.
I went to Recording Mag site and they are sold out of the issue with the Scott Dorsey Oktava MK219, MK319 mods. Does anybody have this issue or a .doc, .pdf file they could send me. (any format for that matter !)
P.S. The issue is June 2005
I have Soundcraft Ghost in my studio.I want to upgrade my sound, for this i am going to buy AMEK 9098 Eq (mic preamp as front end for my DAW & eq for vocals in the mix). I record mostly acoustic instruments for that I need some more eqs. I want to know whether it is possible to improve the eq section of Ghost or the modification are only for micpre section.
I was just wondering if anyone has heard of this mic preamp. I called him asking if he had any quad eight mic preamps and he claims that his mic preamp kit is better than the quad eights, neve, telefunken. I was just wondering if anybody has ever heard it. And if they have, is it true, or is that a bogus statement?
