    Hi, the DN9630 is an AES50 <-> USB interface and this is the closest forum I could find. Does this device really only support 48k and 96k? Doesn't support 44.1 nor 88.2?

      gtcode Answering my own question here - no, it does not support 44.1 -- only 48/96

      Hi @gtcode 


      Yes, only 96kHz / 48 kHz. The idea behind the DN9630 was to be a lower-cost recording/playback option mainly geared towards our Midas PRO Series users. Prior to the DN9630, users would need to incorportate a Klark Teknik DN9650 w/ Dante or KT-USB card options (or third-party RPM Dynamics interfaces), which are quite expensive if you're simply looking to track shows or use for virtual sound check. 

      The 48kHz option further add to the market for our M/X32 users -- as most people are using the 48kHz sample rate. Further, many of our 'Blue' DL15x, DL25x, DL231 Stageboxes only operate at 96/48 kHz so this is in line with those product ranges.

      gtcode Thanks for your honesty here, However, in responding, you've implied that "it would cost too much to support 44.1k" and "(basically) nobody uses it anyway". Yet, the M32 supports 44.1k, and people do use 44.1k. The DN9630 should have been designed accordingly.

      Hi @gtcode 

      Apologies, it really wasn't meant to be implied that way. Nearly all AES50 peripherals relating to PRO Series only 96kHz and 48kHz, such as the DN9680, DN9650, DN9620, DN9610, All 'Blue' I/O boxes, and lastly the DN9630. For M/X32 users, I think the majority of applications where a DN9630 would be used would be in the DN32-USB card is replaced with somethng like the DN32-DANTE card -- and typically users set the sample rate to 48kHz. 

      Although it sounds like you were looking for a 44.1kHz solution and in that case, I understand your frustration.

    Hi, I have bought a PS1 Powersoak. It's all good but if I run my Vox NT50 flat out into it with a 2x12 cab attached, even with the powersoak set to the lowest volume, it's still too load to play in my flat late at night.

    So, is it safe to use it without the speaker attached and the soak volume set to a little more than the lowest, then I can use the line out into a mixer & use headphones. I say, little more than lowest becuase the line out is wierdly controlled by the large soak volume wheel, so when that's set to lowest, virtually nothing comes through the line out apart from hiss & hum.

    The manual is quite ambiguous on this.

      DavidKnighton Hello Russell,
      The manuals states that "even with the SOAK set to 100, the power output will be about half of the amplifiers rated output". This means if you have a 100 watt amp, you're effectively reducing the output by about by 50 watts with Soak set to 100.

      All that being said, I think it would be wise to maintain the speaker load of the cabinet, as most amps do not function correct without the speaker load. What I would suggest is to turn the Master volume down on your amp to compensate. Also, you might want to check and see if you can disconnect one of the drivers in your cabinet to change the load impedance. If you can disconnect one driver, you may increase the load impedance, which will draw less power from the amp, and in turn may reduce the volume a bit. If you do this, make sure you check the impedance value of the speaker and use the correct impedance setting on both the PS1 and the amp head.

      • Bugera PS1 without a speaker connected?
        thewool Hi David,

        Sorry but this answer is very unclear and over-complicated.

        Regardless of the settings, either the PS1 provides the necessary Speaker Load Resistance or not. Your manual says you can either connects a PS1 AND/OR a speaker. ie. it does not need a speaker. ie. it is safe to use without a speaker regardless of the attenuation level.

        Could you please consult with your engineers to get a definitive answer on this, this question is asked a lot in the audio forums.

        Cheers,
        Lee

    I want to run 8 channels out from ableton, using the DN9630, through aes50 into my x32, and routed to my aux ins 1-8. Can that be done with this device, and how to I set up the routing with this?

      Hi @AWhite 


      To send 8 channels of 48k audio from Ableton to the X32, send the channels you want from Ableton on separate USB channels (eg. 1-8). Assuming you send USB 1-8, you'll want to assign AES50 (A or B) channels 1-8 to eight input channels. This would be the routing: Routing:Inputs: Channels. For example, you could put those 8 channels on X32 channels 25-32.Screen Shot 2019-11-24 at 5.50.28 PM.png


      Of course, you could alternately put them on 1-8, 9-16, or 17-24.  The DN9630 will sync to the X32 through AES50 and Ableton will sync to the DN9630.

      Is there an option to route them to 33-40 (aux ins) Maybe that's what you are showing in the image, but would I thin loose 8 ins on the 1-32?

      @AWhite 


      You can remap those the Aux inputs but Aux In remap is limited to 6 channels. That's why I didn't mention it.

    My hurdy gurdy has four magnetic pickups and a xlr connector per pickup.

    For the moment I play through a Behringer XR18, without any preamp.

    It works, but the gain has to be rather high. Using external effects this results in noise.

    Can I use something like the Klark Teknik CM- 2 as preamp to boost the signal before entering the mixer.

    Any other suggestion is welcome, I am a bit of a dummy concerning sound technique.

     

    thanks,

     

    Pieter

      @PieterLauwers 


      Maybe. It depends on your setup. Where are you using external effect and what effects are they? The XR18 already has very good preamps. I suspect your are using effects before the the mixer and the type of effect and it's input and output requirements maybe the source of your problem.


      With a little more information, we can give you some advice.

      Example:


      - used effect: EHX Big Muff


      - routing: instrument in, routed to aux, aux in effect, effect out plugged in mixer.


      So, since the effect is plugged in after the input, the problem is with the effect ( tried Boss Overdrive also) or with the gain settings.


      ( I definitely play a lot better then I am in setting the electronics up!)

      @PieterLauwers 


      The way you have it setup makes sense for your apllication. The problem is a level and impedance mismatch between the mixer's line level output and the pedal's guitar level input.


      Even if you can get the level low enough, the impedance mismatch will mess with your tone. An line level to guitar level converter (also known as  re-amp) will solve that problem.


      Have you tried the mixer's built in Guitar Amp simulator and Tube Stage emulator. You can insert them in a (pair of) channel(s) to get very good amp simulation. Give it a try and see if you like it, or get a re-amp box.

      I use the Tube Stage emulator as an effect on both melody strings.


      so, probably, I will need a reamp box.


      If I understand it right:


      - the effects I use are guitar effects, build for guitar impedance, not mixer line impedance


      - in order to fix noise problems with my outside effect string the mixer's line impedance has to be tempered, ergo the ReAmp.


      Did I say that right? (Still trying to understand the mystic ways of a mixer)


      Thanks!

      @PieterLauwers 


      Impedance and really hot levels are the problems. The Radial ProRMP would be a very solid interface, It's got a sweet little transformer that will make your pedals happy. The are many other fine brands of course.


      As a bonus: After you record your parts, you can use your re-amp to manipulate your tracks after they are recorded,

    Morning all,

    This section of the site seems a little... empty ... compared to other places so I'm not expecting anyone to spot this any time soon. My question though is this...

    The DI800 says it can be phantom powered or mains powered, but the manual is a little thin on how this works in practice. Does giving it phantom power just power individual channels, or does phantom on one line give power to all eight?

    And having done that, what happens if you have the mains plugged in and accidentally add phantom on one or more channels as well? Does it ignore it? Or do you then call the fire brigade?

    I'd try it myself but it's going to take a little while to have the space to set it up, and that may end up being at the next gig rather than on the test bench.

    Anyway, cheers as always.

    G

      You were wrong, Graham, your post did get spotted.


       


      You were right about the DI800 user manual, though. It does a masterly job of failing to explain how the phantom powering works. Based on experience with other active DI boxes, I can guess a few things:


       


      Each channel is separate (apart from the shared mains power supply). If you want to use phantom powering, each channel would need phantom power from the mixer/console.


       


      I think it is very unlikely that there would be a problem if you accidentally supplied phantom power to one or more channels while the mains power was turned on. Phantom power is limited to low currents so doesn't readily produce smoke. I suspect it would effectively be ignored.

    Hi, In the stereo Klark Teknik DI 10P every input channel has an attenuation knob. Product documentation mentions that knobs at fully clockwise position means no attenuation. What's the max attenuation achievable (ie. set fully counter clockwise) in dBV ? Thanks in advance.

    • jgomer2001
      jgomer2001 The level knobs of the DI 10P are relative to the signals input into the device. You can relate the 0 to 10 scale to 0% to 100%. So, it will take the signal and attenuate it down the percentage amount you choose of the signal coming in.
