    Dear Music Tribe Community,


    I would love to see a revival of the 8 and 16 track reel-to-reel tape machines but with modern features, which would fit in a modern studio environment. There are old reel-to-reel recorders like Fostex E8, E16 and Tascam msr-16 .etc, most of them requires horrible hardware to calibrate and repair. Some has even midi expansions like Fostex mtc-1, which is also horrible.

    Lots of end-users don’t want to get into the above legacy hardware due to the maintain mentioned above, but love the sound of tape recording and is therefore using “PC plugins” to get it, which is a shame in my opinion

    I cannot mention any companies nowadays who dared to pull the trigger on a modern analogue multi-track reel-to-reel recorder.

    Note:

    You can buy new tape for reel-to-reel machines at Thomann nowadays.

    I tried recording last night with a thumb drive.

    When I played it back it skipped very bad.

    Any ideas?

      MichaelRath Hi Chuck,



      thumbdrives can be very different in respect to writing and reading speeds and even in compatibility to certain controllers (PC versus embedded systems like keyboards, sat receivers, digital mixers).



      I tried some USB sticks on my sat receiver and some worked with HD recordings and some didn't (had dropouts). And it didn't matter if it was a USB 3.0 or 2.0 one (the receiver had only a 2.0 port) or if it was performing fast on the PC even on 2.0 ports only.



      Although recording HD video is a lot more challenging than recording a stereo WAV file, I give you the following advice: test various sticks and stay with the one you never get any problems with. The continuous writing speed (especially on a USB 2.0 port) on a PC can still be a indicator for a good stick to go with.



      Another good idea is, as Paul stated in another thread, to regularly empty or even format (FAT32) the stick, as I know from my Yamaha PSR keyboard that full sticks (many files in one directory) take a lot more time to be ready, and fragmentation (from often deleting single files leaving others on the stick and then recording new ones) causes it to slow down too.



      Though this is less of a problem on PCs (especially with USB3.0), it can be a problem on less powerful hardware like the microcontrollers and USB chips used in the X32.



      Regards



      Michael

    I have a Behringer pmp4000 that is about 5 years old, has never left my studio & has never been bounced around. Once it warms up it starts making a pulsating sound thru the speakers. I can mute all channels and it still does it. If I take the EQ out of the mix the amp goes dead quiet like it is not woking ..... when it is working fine I can take the EQ out of the mix and the board still plays ... just with no EQ ...The EQ is the problem. I live in Charleston SC ..is this something I can fix or does it need to be sent off ?? Thanks

      Michael_Lapke Dear Doug,



      Sounds like you indeed might be having a problem with your EQ or output section. Because your unit is beyond it's warranty period I would recommend that you contact one of our service centers for a repair. Here's the link on our website that will assist you in finding the closest one:

    Hello
    I loaded a fresh version of X Air edit 1.5 and im trying to mute the monitor signal fader while leaving the main fader signal open.

    When I mute the monitor signal it mutes the main signal and vice versa.
    I need to mute the monitor signal at the fader and have the main fader active and vice versa.

    Hope I explained this properly...
    Thanks....

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Dan,



      On the X-Air consoles, there is only one mute per channel. On the X32, there are 2 - one for Main LR and one for each send. The only thing you could do is mute the bus master fader.

    Hello! New to this forum and new to XR18, so any help would be appreciated.

    When we mute our vocal channels out front, you can't hear the monitors. Our goal, of course, is to only hear our monitors, while keeping our vocals from coming out front while the music is playing. So the main has to be up, and if we mute our Mics, it mutes the monitors too. Is there a way to mute one without muting the other? Thanks much!

    Hello
    I have from several years an inuke DSP 6000, quite new because i used it only few times from my sub in my HT system. I have now decided to make the FAN MOD to make it more quite changing the stock ones with Silverstone fm84 fans..

    I noticed that the fan move very slow and an electric strange sound comes from the amply or the fan themselves, like there no enough power to move forward the fans and they keep moving slowly..

    Is this normal? This fans are rated to use less power of the stock ones with high CFM
    Model No.SST-FM84
    ColorWhite fan blades, White frame
    BearingSleeve
    Connectors3pin
    Rated Voltage12V DC
    Start Voltage4.5V DC
    Rated Current0.05 ~ 0.27A
    Rated Power4.2W
    Speed1500 ~ 3500 rpm
    Airflow15 ~ 36.87CFM
    Static Pressure0.7 ~ 4.53mmH2O
    Noise Level18.1 ~ 34.8dBA
    Life Time25,000 hr

    3.15" (L) x 3.15" (W) x 0.98" (H)

    Does the amply has an adaptive control of the voltage based in temperature? I used it for 1 hour with normal volume and they keep moving slowly..

    Thank you for your support I don't want to damage the PA

    Hello,

    Im using the usb for input into the mixer and have been trying to use it as the main LR out as well. The only driver that lets me do this is USB Driver version 2.23.

    When setting it up, it seems that the USB 1/2 send is sending out the sound jsut fine, it just sound 100% different than i have my mixer setup for. What im hearing is louder or softer depending on what the soudn is coming through than what the MAin LR is sending out via the USB back to the PC.

    I tried a limiter on the main LR out and if i crank the input up the signal stays the same for the output and is not impacted at all.

    How can i use the USB as Main LR correctly, are the 2.23 the only drivers that work for simply sending 2 channels out and having windows detect that? Am i missing Something? Or can i not use usb out as my main LR out instead of using XLR in the Main LR area on the mixer?

      AaronDuerksen The PC app (Windows, Linux, Mac, Pi) has an In/Out button in the top right cluster. Open that and go to the USB Sends tab. There you can patch each USB channel to anything you like. The driver makes no difference whatsoever beyond "getting sound" at all.
