Re: Monitors: Yamaha HS50M vs HS5s

I think the main difference is in the "M" which stands for magnetic shielding. I have the HS80M, they are very good for mixing with. Also, I think the HS8 goes a tad lower in frequency. That might be the same for the 5" versions. In the era of LCDs, etc, does magnetic shielding really provide any v...

Monitors: Yamaha HS50M vs HS5s

Can anyone tell me what the differences might be between the older HS50Ms and the newer HS5s? HS5 product page: https://usa.yamaha.com/products/proaudio/speakers/hs_series/index.html Can no longer find the product page for the HS50M, but: https://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/yamaha-hs50m-5-powe...

Re: Arbhar, Magneto, and like, phasing issues, I guess? Silence

Thanks, this clears a lot of stuff up. So even w/ phase switching on in Arbhar, summing the dry out 1 and 2 in the Magneto still causes cancelation when summing L & R down the chain, I think.

Slightly engaging the stereo reverb on the Arbhar is a tidy fix, but of course changes the sound...

Arbhar, Magneto, and like, phasing issues, I guess? Silence

Hi, noob here: using my Arbhar, running its stereo outputs (output 1 and 2) into Magneto's L & R ins. When Arbhar is fully dry, Magneto records nothing: there is no input. Mixing dry and wet gives me some recording level. I thought it might be a phasing thing? I then ran Arbhar's stereo outs directl...

Re: Do I really need a quad VCA to start?

One quad goes a long way! At the risk of sounding like an obvious idiot, it's 4 VCAs, and as you start you will love what VCAs can do for anything, audio or CV. One quad VCA can really impact a system. I love my Veils.

guitar level, line level, Strymon AA1, clipping

hey guys: question for you. I have a Strymon AA.1, it's marketed as amplifying guitar levels to a modular level. I don't do much with guitars, I want to use it to run synths into my eurorack (or stuff out of my DAW and back in)-- so, I am guessing: line level, right? Louder than guitar level? I inde...

Random question for you guys who live where termites go

I live in CA. We have termites. We need to tent our house (read: gas it) and in general everyone says there is zero risk to electrical equipment. Wondering if anyone in this community has had any experience with tenting/gassing for termites and concerns over the synth/eurorack/etc collection. Probab...

Ha! The new Dave Smith synth is the prophet 8 with the vco’s of the prophet 6 but with the filter of the prophet12. It will be a rev 2 thing. Ohh and you can choose between the 8 and 16 voice. It has the same looks as the prophet 3. Not sure why you are confused? I can't tell if this is a genuine r...

Recording to external HD, USB 3 vs SDD?

Can anyone speak to the efficacy of recording audio an external HD, using USB 3 (say one of these WD Passports) versus the SSD from Samsung (or whomever)?

The 5TB USB 3.0 drives are roughly $100, the 2TB SSDs are about $250, wondering if it's feasible to do USB 3.0?

Hey guys: is there a musical way to think of the attenuverter value when using this mode & a scale such as major? Would it correspond to the number of semitones, cents, or anything? 1-32... Like if I have an osc tuned to C, and Major set, and I set the attuneverter at 12... that's clearly more than ...

Re: Pit Modular Case & Knurlies

From Pittsburgh re: the Structure cases and Knurlies: Knurlies are metric and will not fit in the 420, which takes 440, 1/4" screws.

The Structure 344 is our only case that accepts metric screws.

In fact, even with washers and the screws that came w/ the EP 420, those don't work either, can't catch the nut. It's frustra...

Re: puzzling out a solution w/ Magneto modulation?

Interesting tips, I will try them out! I ended up using gates from steps 15 and 16 of a 16-step sequence, so it's only on for that 15th step and then turned off by the 16th.

When you send a 5v edge to Magneto's Shift input, it toggles the pitch shift mode. It's nice, but I want to turn it on and off briefly, not for the duration for the square I'm currently using to toggle it. Any ideas? I have MATHS, a Disting, and some other EGs, etc. but, if I am articulating this we...

I was going nuts with some interference/ground hum/whatever with my rackmount audio interface, traced it down to the power ship I had mounted inside the same rack. Turned that off, noise went away. Why would a power strip sitting in the rack cause interference?

Tell me how you've liked it. I've been super tempted since day one but I see issues about the rotary encoders, and now people are posting pictures of uneven keybeds. A little concerning, especially at the $2K USD price point.
