I did a frequency sweep of the Adam A8X, and the Quested S8R studio monitors recently:
Can you tell which is which?
I was at a product demo yesterday, and the star of the show was the Soundcraft Si Compact digital desk for livesound. Plenty of eye candy (including colour-coded fader lights), but more importantly the touchscreen has been put to one side to make way for a control section with real knobs. This makes it easy to control all the channel gate, compressor, and EQ settings. $12,000 for the 24 channel version. Here is the brochure:
Since there are now 65 pages on my site, I thought I would add a site map. At this stage it is just a list and doesn't link to the pages, but at least it gives an overview of what's on audiosite.
I finally changed the battery in my old DX7 (after 27 years!). An easy job, as the front panel is hinged and swings up to reveal the battery below. The battery has tags through the main circuit board, so to replace it in the same way would mean removing this board from the case. The method I used was to gently prise the old battery off its tags, then solder a battery holder into the tags.
Just for fun I checked the old battery voltage and it was 0.2v (a far cry from 3.0v). The amazing thing is that the DX7 memories were still working perfectly! The original Sanyo battery showed no signs of leaking, and the only hint of trouble was the battery voltage (on the DX7) was reading 4.5v.
After I reassembled the keyboard I reloaded my favourite sound bank from the computer, and it is up and running again. The only thing to need resetting was the Function data.
