    G system serial number  6538513 silver .  Can someone tell me the software that this model of G system would have had uploaded from factory and if it requires any updates for software  compared to to the later (last units made) . I was told that this serial number is with the IB Buffers and updated effects 4.02 version.

     

    I have yet to get to grips with understanding the unit ...can these details of software version etc be viewed from the units display? 

     

    Any assistance would be appreciated .

      PedroRodrigues Hi Martini22, the G-System iB-Modified was the latest addition to the G-System family. FX and presets-wise there is no difference between this and any other G-System that has been upgraded with the latest firmware updates. The main features in the iB-Modified are as follows:
      The iB-Modified G-System features the ultimate 3rd generation input buffer modification, designed by Italian electronics guru Massimo Mantovani. By changing the analogue input design, as opposed to the silver version, as well as a number of components, a super transparent tone that offers loads of punch and a snappier response has been achieved.
      All in all there are three different version of the G-System input circuit, the standard, Limited Edition and the iB-Modified versions respectively.
      After the Limited Edition was discontinued, all standard G-Systems that were made got the 2nd generation input buffer version from the Limited Edition. Approximately six months later we introduced the iB-Modified version, and all G-Systems made after this have the 3rd generation input design from in the iB-Modified version. Unfortunately via the serial number I cannot specify exactly what Firmware was loaded on your unit from factory, nevertheless I will leave you a link below to access the latest firmware and the process to update your G-SYSTEM to latest Firmware releases Version 4.5 https://wsi.li/dl/X9LbYD7xGZ32kKzdv/ Thank you

      Martini22 Hello Pedro and thank you for the reply. I read on the rig talk that unit having a serial number higher than 6539340 is IB Mod version so mine is apparently 2nd gen. if correct. I will have to live with that versions issues I guess . The so called white paper by Laird Williams is hard to actually locate on this site ...can you send me a link to this for a pdf download to help me get going. The old links are dead and cannot see it anywhere ..just comments about the paper. Many thanks Tony Martin

    Does anyone know how these two units compare? I know the rev2496 is discontinued, but any comparison information between the two would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Hi

    I know the Flashback 2 x4 delay time can be synced with an external midi clock but does the in built looper also sync to the Clock?

    Cheers

      PedroRodrigues Hi nbtien2003,thank you for your post, regarding your question can you please confirm that you have set up the SDI OUTPUT at 48 kHz sample rate and 24 bit resolution.
      Please also confirm if you have activated the Advanced SDI Mode section of the I/O SDI, to diagnose a potential problem, DB6 offers a diagnostic mode, to activate diagnostic mode, set the Clock Mode parameter to Diagnostic.
      In Diagnostic mode, the DB6 will disregard the audio clock information included in the audio packets in the SDI stream and de-embed the audio based on the video clock only.
      Please use the Audio Out Groups parameter to define if and how the group assignment of the processed audio signals should be changed.
      The processed audio signals will be assigned to the same audio channel groups at the SDI output that were selected using the Audio Groups selector.
      This is the default setting which is also used when Advanced SDI mode has not been activated.
      The processed audio signals will be assigned to the selected audio channel groups at the SDI output.
      If you are using this parameter to reassign audio channels to other groups, make sure that you are processing the right audio groups downstream.
      The Rate Detect Mode parameter is used to specify how DB6 should behave when receiving SD, HD and 3G signals. By narrowing the range of formats acceptable to the DB6, lock-up time may be optimized.
      If you set the Rate Detect Mode parameter to Automatic, DB6 will accept all SDI formats: SD, HD and 3G. This is the default setting which is also used when Advanced SDI mode has not been activated.
      Please consider that once you set the Rate Detect Mode parameter to SD, DB6 will only accept the SD format and not consider locking to HD or 3G signals, resulting in optimal lock-up time for SD signals. I hope this helps

    I'm trying to use both digital in/outs if an M5000 I just picked up. 

    My main interface is a RME UFX+. The AES I/O is being used for the first engine. 

    I have an RME Fireface 800 that uses the ADAT connections back into the UFX+. I was planning on using the Fireface 800's S/PDIF I/O for the second engine in the M5000. 

    Two things:

    1) how do I get to the second engine in the M5000 to select a different effect?

    2) doesn't S/PDIF clock itself? It's blinking on the Fireface 800 meaning that it isn't clocking correctly.

      Thank you. I’ve got the clocking issue figured out but still don’t have what I *THINK* is promised with this unit. Which is the ability to have 2 different reverbs going at the same time. One off of ROM (AES I/O) and one off of RAM (SPDIF I/O). Am I correct here? The manual is not very user friendly…

    Hi,

    on the release notes of the 1.3.6 Firmware update it mentions faster board changing/loading. Is it fast enough to be used in a pratical way LIVE? Meaning midway thru a song, change to another board with gapless sound changing?

     

    Many thanks!

      PedroRodrigues Hi gilmourstrat, thank you for your post, effectively the new FW will allow the user to load a board faster but not as fast as you are requiring. Thank you

    My over 10 years old dcx2496 finally stopped working, because of power supply failure. 

    Is there any way to get the power supply replacement? It seems easy to replace it by few unscrewing and unplugging. And I am sure I could do it without problem. Please let me know where to get it.

      Nigel67 Hi BBgjkin. Please submit a spares ticket and someone will e-mail you back with pricing and availability. This can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Spare Parts tab and submit a ticket. If we no longer have stock, then have you tried a local repair shop? It may be something as simple as the electrolytic capacitors drying out and in need of replacement. Many thanks

    Hi All:

    just purchased a 2nd KT DN405 PEQ and this one does NOT have an output transformer.  I know this is a legacy product and was wondering if there are any suggestions for a currently manufacture output transformer.  The originals do show up used from time to time on eBay et al but wanted to just order something sooner rather than later that will work.  I'm assuming this is a British unit from the likes of Sowter or Partridge.  

     

    Thanks very much for your help.

      Nigel67 Hi dhsierra1. Have you tried contacting our spares team to see if we have stock? This can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Spare Parts tab and submit a ticket. The transformers were a specific design for Klark Teknik products. I am sorry, but I do not remember who the manufacturer was but the spares people will be able to help you.

      Hi Nigel: thank you for the quick reply, I'll drop them a line and see if they can at least dig out the specs that were used, this is a 30 year old product after all!

      • Klark Teknik DN405 Output Transformer Replacement
        Nigel67 The output transformers were used in all Klark Teknik analogue equipment, so although the DN405 was made obsolete many years ago, there were still products using the output transformer such as the DN360 until maybe 5 years ago (possibly a little longer).

      • Klark Teknik DN405 Output Transformer Replacement
        Nigel67 Hi dhsierra1. I just checked with the spares team and we have no stock. I doubt that we will be getting any new stock either. I have however found that they were made by Nuvotem and their reference is 92257-P1S1. You could try contacting them and see what they can do for you.

    Good afternoon,

     

    would appreciate some advise on connecting amp 800 to mixer

     

    gear:

    mixer      studiomaster 12XS+

    effect unit Lexicon MX300

    recorder Tascam SD20M

    headphone amp Beringer amp800 (aquired recently

     

    connected to mixer:

    Microphone, keyaboard, ch 5/6 & 7/8 (stereo)

    lexicon (for vocals only) aux out, return to ch. 11/12 (stereo)

    tascam from mains out to recorder in (XLR)

    amp 800 from mixer/recorder headphones out to input A (mono) with TRS

    CD/recorder on ch. 9/10, channel fader normally down to avoid feedback when recording

     

    when listening headphones when connected directly to mixer/recorder I can her everything as it will be recorded, when connectiog amp800 to headphones out on mixer or recorder vocals disappear and only signal from lexicon is heard. same when playback of CD. instruments are OK, vocals disappear (no effect chosen on ch. 09/10)

     

    what am I doing wrong - please advise

     

    Already emailed Dutch supplier (see below), awaiting their reply

    QUOTE

    Ter verduidelijking hierbij even mijn gear details:

    Mengtafel                Studiomaster club12+

    Effectunit                 Lexicon MX300

    Recorder                   Tascam SD20M

    Headphoneamp    Behringer AMP800 (recentelijk aangeschaft)

     

    Opstelling/aansluitingen

    Instrumenten         kanaal 1 t/m 8 (inputs; zang, drumcomputer en keyboards (stereo kan. 5/6 en 7/8)

    De Lexicon wordt via AUX out mono aangestuurd (wordt alleen voor de zang gebruikt) en komt stereo op kanaal 11/12 terug op de mengtafel. De AUX outs van de andere kanalen worden niet gebruikt, mocht er op de keyboards effect nodig zijn, gebeurt dat via de DSP met de interne effect processor

    De Tascam wordt via de Mains out (XLR) aangestuurd.

     

    Via de MON outs op de tafel stuur ik nog een stereo versterker en speakers aan. Vreemd genoeg wordt het volume van de versterker/speakers mede bepaald door zowel de volumeknop van de headphones als de Master volume schuif; hier kan ik echter wel mee leven.

     

    Normaliter kan ik op de koptelefoon uitgangen (zowel die op de tafel als die van de Lexicon) alles goed monitoren en wordt wat ik op de koptelefoon hoor ook correct op de SD kaart gezet.

     

    Na ontvangst van de AMP800 heb ik deze met de TRS kabel op de koptelefoon uitgang van de mixer met input A (de “mono” ingang) van de amp800 verbonden. Bij afluistering via de amp800 hoor ik echter alleen het signaal van de Lexicon terug (zit dus in een ontzettende galmbak). Het maakt niet uit of ik de amp800 direct met de mixer verbind of met de headphones out van de Tascam, het resultaat blijft hetzelfde. De amp800 is aangeschaft om met meerdere muzikanten op te nemen (home-studio). Kon uit de handleiding niet duidelijk opmaken wat dit veroorzaakt.

     

    Sluit ik e.e.a. verkeerd aan of moet ik beide inputs van de Amp800 middels TRS aansluiten (heb maar 1 stereo headphones aansluiting op de mixer).

    Zou het eventueel een optie zijn om de MON outs van de mixer met input a & b van de amp800 te verbinden?? Outs zijn echter wel mono. Opnemen doe ik sowieso alleen met de headphones.

     

    Ook als ik bijv. een CD afspeel valt de zang in de galm als ik via de amp800 terugluister. Bij directe aansluiting van de headphones op de mixer wordt alles correct weergegeven.

     

    Hoop dat jullie mij hiermee kunnen helpen, ben dit probleem de afgelopen 40 jaar nog niet tegengekomen.
