Hi all,

I know this is an old post but I have been trying different configurations in my last mix I have done and I would like to do some comments about it.

I understund that the master fader VCA controles the input signal to the quad buss compressor (please, correct me if it is not), so if you asre mixing hot, master VCA is on top and on the quad buss compressor, the signal is compressed just a bit, the signal is too hot for AD convertion to de DAW (even without using the make up pot)

In my last mix, I have connected -15dB attenuators (the only ones I have) in the RL/RF outputs and go to my avid omni digital preamps (these preamps are very clear), and adjust the gain until I get -3db (digital) peaks and -13db (digital) rms. I get very good results.

I think would be better to use regulable attenuators (something with a fade) and control the input signal to the AD converter (instead of preamps). Does someone know about a clear device wich can do this job without compromise the audio signal?

Thanks to all in advance.

Best regards.

Oihan

Hi Andy
Lovely informative post about SWF and I remember it well and those early days of course. I was at SSL from 1980 (1 console every 6 weeks then) until 1987).
I forgot about you and probably vice versa. I am the wiring moderator on here and I will send you a message directly. Lovely to read your comments and have those memories. I am still in contact with John East and others from SSL.
Regards from Jim Lassen

How much heat is normal for the Ultimation faders so produce?
My faders panels feels almost as warm as the center section when touching them.
