With there currently being plenty of rain in the UK, we are remembering all that happened last summer. Amongst many other things, an extremely talented student from our local sixth form carried out work experience with the Kidderminster Tribe. This is what he created. Thank you, Joe - you are welcome back any time!
We sat down for a chat with Andreas, owner of TRIPLEX GmbH in Germany, to discover more about his day to day work and repairing for Pink Floyd. Guess what... He LOVES music! :D
Earlier this year, MUSIC Tribe Kidderminster had a great weekend supporting their talented friends at Kidderminster College, who hosted BBC Music Introducing in Hereford and Worcester. Here's some footage from the day, with an appearance from college patron Bev Bevan of ELO and Quill fame. Happy to help and be customer obsessed!
This video will walk you through all troubleshooting steps that you can take to ensure successful connection between your IPD and IntelliDrive. If you still require help with connection after you have followed each step in this tutorial, and you have tested all steps on more than one PC, then we would be happy to hear from you. Get in touch!
As an alternative to feeding a mono signal into each Tannoy Reveal loudspeaker, you can feed a stereo signal (e.g. from an audio interface, a smart phone or an audio player) to one loudspeaker and link it to a second loudspeaker using the supplied 3.5 mm cable, thereby creating a stereo pair.
To do so, proceed as follows:
Connect your line level signal source to the “IN” jack in the AUX section of the first loudspeaker’s Volume control 6 Reveal 402/502/802 rear panel, using the 3.5 mm mini-jack cable that came with the first speaker.
Connect the “MONITOR LINK” jack of the first loudspeaker to the “MONITOR LINK” jack of the second loudspeaker using the 3.5 mm mini-jack cable that came with the second speaker. Set the “SPEAKER POSITION” switch of each monitor according to its physical position.
Set the position switch of the left loudspeaker (when facing the fronts) to “-►”.
Set the position switch of the right loudspeaker to“◄-”.
Dan and Pedro from Kidderminster (UK) took a trip to Risskov in Denmark for service training. Here, they acquired necessary skills as part of their mission to be Customer Obsessed. In Part 2, Dan and Pedro offer a deeper glimpse into their experiences.
“We wish to thank Michael, Leon and Christian for having us in their studio. It allowed us to understand the evolution, progress and paths that TC Electronic have walked over these years. It allowed us, at the component level, to understand any problems that customers might have.”
“Having all those experiences and being able to exchange knowledge was amazing. We are better Tribers for that and I am very happy that we can use these tools to serve our customers better.”
“Seeing all those great people and how their minds work was one of the most memorable experiences of my life.”

“To understand the composition of each unit is to fully understand how it works. And if you understand how something works in depth, then you will assist better.”
“We already arrived in Denmark with smiles on our faces because we are audio people and we love what we do. But the best moment was cycling to work, thinking that I was going to a place where I will acquire knowledge and tools to help our customers.”
If you are plugging your headphone output of your phone or MP3 player directly into a mono input on your mixer, audio interface or active speaker by using a TRS adapter or cable, then you may notice the audio does not sound correct. You may hear loss of vocals, weaker bass or bad levels of distortion. This is a phasing issue - a result of supplying your mono input with a stereo signal. In this video, we explain that such problems can easily be avoided using a specific cable type in conjunction with two mono input channels. The cable type you would need is a '3.5mm TRS to 2x 6.35mm TS’ stereo breakout cable.
This video will offer you a thorough connection guide for using your S16 stagebox with X32:
You can quickly adhere to the following to allow the S16 and X32 to communicate with one another:
1. Connect a shielded Cat5e cable to the AES50A port of the X32 and the AES50A port of the S16.
2. Press and hold the CONFIG button of the S16
3. With the CONFIG button held, rotate the HA encoder knob counter-clockwise until the display reads "1-8" and no LEDs are lit on the right-hnad side of the display.
4. On the X32, navigate to the CONFIG tab of the SETUP screen.
5. Set the Synchronization to LOCAL.
This setup will allow the S16 and X32 to communicate with one another to send signal back and forth between the two devices.
