    Hello Folks,

    Has anyone tried Reamping with a DI Box by using it in Reverse?

    1. You take a 1/4" balanced TRS cable out from any output of the UR-44 and insert it into rear panel of your DI Box Output via an XLR Female to 1/4" female. (Mine is a Behringer DI-100.
    2. Then on the Front of the DI Box connect a 1/4" TRS balanced cable from the Input to the input of the first pedal in the pedal chain.
    3. Then a TS unbalanced cable from output of the last pedal in your pedal chain into a Hi-Z input on the UR-44 (1 or 2) ?

    Hi, will the 8200 accept a digital input from a Sony CDSA player and divide it into 5.1 analogue outputs please?

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Kenny, the ADA8200 digital input is an 8 channel ADAT and can output to the 8 output channels. Does the Sony player output this digital signal?

    Hi, does a DI400P DI BOX drop the line level from a mono mixer output, down to a balanced microphone level?

    I'm looking at taking an audio feed into stereo camera mic input.

    Thanks, Ken

    Hi, The stereo Klark Teknik DI 10P features one L+R RCA and one 3.5mm (stereo) inputs. Can all inputs be simultaneously used so the 4 channels are summed to build a single mono signal ? I'm hesitant to try it. I wouldn't like to damage the DI. Thanks in advance.

      RexBeckett As I understand it, the RCA and 3.5mm sockets are connected directly together. This would not be a good way to sum two stereo sources but it is more likely to damage the sources than the DI 10P. You would get much better results by using a small stereo mixer to sum the sources.

      jgomer2001 For those interested, here is the reply received by the support specialist: "You could use all inputs at the same time but I wouldn't recommend it to prevent overdriving the passive circuitry. Instead, If you need to use more than one source, plug your sources into a small mixer. Take the mixer's outputs and connect them to one of the stereo inputs of the DI. This will also allow for better control of your individual sources."

    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 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.

    Hi,

    can I use this power supply to run the Hall if Fame Reverb Pedal (1)?

    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.

    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

      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,

    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.
