Re: Blending Sludge and Noise

Welcome! I like this idea. Anything grainy is universally useful. You can grab an EQ to rid yourself of frequency ranges that step on the rest of your work. I use an Alesis 3630 a lot in feedback loop stuff. You can feed the sidechain input of the compressor to squish the shit out of a feedback loop...

Re: Another novice seeking advice (No input mixing)

If you have resolved the issues of being able to record, it sounds like all you need is a way to attenuate the signal feeding your recorder - which is on a branch just "listening" to your feedback signal, true? Tons of ways to pad a signal so it doesn't blow out your recording, but before adding add...

Re: Your Setups

[view] is killer, saw a set where he used the power outlet as signal source, iirc Ah, the cascading transformers, so yeah - 60 hz at the wall stepped down, down, down (couple volts now), down to something like 600 mV and on into the mixer. I'd love to hear it too! But Curtis Is it ...<<<(((SsStTtEe...

Re: Show us yr DIY!

I highly suggest looking at datasheets of any and all parts used in conjunction with AC mains. For chopping a dimmer control would work, and it's self contained. Otherwise an SCR or triac can effectively pad an AC mains line, but you need other circuitry involved (read my first line again). Another ...

Re: Another novice seeking advice (No input mixing)

Tape recorder: Nothing. I don't know what the hell is going on there, but it just records silence. Does your tape recorder work with other sources? Some mixers want you to activate a control room/monitor button (or make sure your send level isn't buried via an extra knob) to exploit tape outputs.

Re: Another novice seeking advice (No input mixing)

Turn *everything* all the way down.

Plug the output into an input with a cable.

Slowly increase gains/levels/EQs until you have a sound.

Explore.

Re: Not Blowing the Snot out a Piezo

Oh, bulbs will light right up if you feed 'em well, you just have to mount them in a visible location.

Pulse to the beat of the music involves a little trickery, as all you'll get with a limiter is an averaging power indicator.

Re: Not Blowing the Snot out a Piezo

My big take away from the thread I linked is: A) piezos are capacitive in response, so having at least 8 ohms in series can stabilize amplifier designs that could go into runaway at super low impedance loads on supersonic frequencies. and B) operational load can measure in the 1K range, making stand...

Re: Not Blowing the Snot out a Piezo

I've never run piezo horns that hard, so it's always been a plug and play thing for me. (My PA runs compression drivers on the top and I've always been happy with that, everything else is generally reasonable volume stuff) There's this thread with decent information: http://audiokarma.org/forums/ind...

Re: Octave/Pitch Shifter

So how come it says Power: 9V DC, and then AC adapter? just curious It converts (or adapts, if you prefer) AC to DC. The important aspect is polarity of DC on output of power supply, voltage of DC and sufficient current capability, all of which you are well within spec. The AC is there because gene...
