The Baby Animal kit I built was my first electronics project ever. I had done a bit here and there with changing pickups in guitars, but that was years ago. After reading and researching I went with the Baby Animal kits because I felt that, with patience, I could do it. And I did! Now I have the bug...

Oh, one more thing... Are you going to make 500-series retrofit kits for your other DIY products? I'd really dig being able to put my BA's into a 500-format case. Someone needs to put together a more expansive series of 500 racks... Six spaces is nice, but considering the plethora of stuff out there...

Noice. Needless to say I'ma hold off on a project or two so I can save my pennies. I'd really really dig two of those PEQ modules. You totally stole my 500-series mixer idea though (j/k)... Only mine was gonna be four channels, passive, with panning. Anyways, great stuff! Well worth the wait.

Things are happening a bit faster on this project now. Next I'm building 4 channels of panning logic. All inputs will be switchable -- two (A and B) will be linked to the panning circuit, and two (C and D) will connect straight to the outputs and bypass the pan pot circuit. So a single module (conta...

And here's a pic of the full version (sans permanent box). I've used the corpse of the old patch bay strictly for organizational purposes. This will ultimately get a proper box: http://bp2.blogger.com/_YjjLf2lwxo8/RsKEkRUNYPI/AAAAAAAAAFY/ZwbkypdqYHM/s400/mixer_full.jpg After further testing there's ...

Success!

Well, four mono channels into one anyway, but it proves the concept. Frankenstein Lives!: http://bp2.blogger.com/_YjjLf2lwxo8/Rr05GhUNYOI/AAAAAAAAAFQ/EwgZTsGWrXw/s400/success.jpg What you see there are two Edcor WSM-6410s into one Edcor WSM-6400.

Of course, leave it to Dangerous Music to make the box I've always wanted: http://www.mercenary.com/damud.html That's basically what I want to build, it even has two channes of D/A and two sets of speaker outputs. I'll still build my mixer/summing box, but if I had $1400 bucks right now I'd buy this...

I haven't had much time to do DIY in the last couple of weeks, unfortunately. I'm hoping that will change in the near future. I plan on taking apart a cheap patch bay I had and using the jacks from it for inputs and outputs, so that'll take a bit of time. Maybe I can even reuse the patch bay chassis...

Received my transformers, four Edcor WSM6410 and two Edcor WSM6400. I emailed the manufacturer and asked them the same question about the necessity of resistors -- they said I wouldn't need any, but I don't know if they were considering the transformer-to-transformer junction.

Doh, it just hit me... So I could make a couple of the 1290's and, using these kits, run them off the same supply I use for my Baby Animals. I wanted to include a couple of 1290's in my "mixer" setup, so this is just the ticket.

[quote]Even for multi winding transformer mixing to work you need resistors or the output impedance of the other transformer inputs will load/short the transformer. I would just go the resistors and no transformers except maybe at the summing point like 1272 amps were used in a Neve console.[/quote]...

...And one more track, all drums the same as Funk 16, appropriately named Funk 17. I modified the chain a bit; The SM 57 on snare and 909 on kick to the Baby Animals to an RNC to the 896HD. I eq'ed the kick drum to carve a bit of space for the bass since the JLM/909 combo pick up a bit more rumble t...

...Ooops, realized that should be 16 l/r inputs total (8l, 8r) for 8 pannable channels. Not thinking straight there, or thinking more about an outboard summing buss for my DAW (which is how I'll test these topologies). Anyways, same principals with a few more transformers. Dunno if I like having sig...

New Project -- 8/8 BA mixer, help wanted w/buss design

I've been thinking about this for awhile now and I'm ready to start buying some of the parts. However, i'm still working out some of the bussing topology. Here's the basics: Configuration is like a Manley 8x8: 8 mic inputs w/pan, 8 line inputs w/volume and pan, into two selectable mix busses. I am g...

Quick question -- has anyone over here had a problem registering at the Prodigy Pro forum? I've tried six times now over the last three months using various email addresses (some with spam blocking, some without) and I've never had an admin approve my account. I'd love to go over there and talk abou...
