Re: Yamaha Montage Hands On - First Impressions

I would use it for composing if I had more room :roll: So only playing ATM

I don't have a "studio" space sadly. The 8HD is in a bedroom and the 6HD is in the conservatory - which is the only place I can record vocals (at 3 am in the morning) due to traffic noise the rest of the time . . .

Re: Anyone come across mSATA SSDs?

Hi John, Yes, I've had some dealings with mSATA SSDs. A long time back, I bought an ASUS EEPC 901 off ebay. It's a tiny NetBook described as 20Gb SSD and had WinXP on it . . In actuality it has 2 SSDs, A 4Gb and a 16Gb . . . The 4Gb was just inside the back cover - easy . . . . The 16Gb required dis...

Re: Extending Speaker Cables

Hi BP, I forgot to mention. If you CAN, buy a (hopefully cheap(er)) 8 pin male to male LEAD and cut the plug off one end . . . This will save having to solder ONE end . . . and will give you easy access to the individual cables the other end . . . . to solder to the Female socket you need (to make a...

Re: Yamaha Montage Hands On - First Impressions

I bought them from a shop where I could see and touch them first. I'd be too worried about paying so much money for any used electronic equipment without first seeing it in person. So, for my peace of mind, I'll rule out any used boards. That means I'm losing out on great deals, but gaining peace o...

Hi swithin, Just been listening to your examples . . . . Very nice - considering the basic setup you were using . . . Shows what CAN be done with such gear . . . I can't fault the suggestions you have seen so far. There are some fine boards out there both old an new, and as the technology moves alon...

Re: The SSD (Holy Grail) can finally be YOURS !

To my knowledge, I have never had any problems virus-wise copying the Fusion_HD Volume folder back to the Fusion's HD (or SSD). I do it once in a while just for safety, and of course recently when I acquired my 6HD - I copied the 8HD's Volume folder to the 6HD's SSD - so the machines have identical ...

Re: wx5 stuck notes

True enough Andy, Maplins is struggling. Too many expensive gimmicks and the "enthusiast" stuff gets less and less. I think they will eventually go the same way as "Tandy" (Radio Shack in the US) I fear . . . They were also good for bits and pieces . . . I DID get my Servisol from Maplin about a mon...

Thanks for that VERY complete description Andy, it answers my question absolutely . . . given that both adjusters are "Pots", I can offer this . . . . which may help . . these pots have a carbon track and a "wiper" which is the bit you move when you adjust it . . .

Hi Guys . . I have NO knowledge of the workings of wind controllers, at all . . . but could you tell me if the Wind zero and Wind gain controls you mention are PHYSICAL - i.e. a "Tap" in the wind path, or are they ELECTRICAL i.e. screwdriver "Pots"?
