Thumbs up, dani.

I need to give Emma her first haircut any time soon by the looks of it. She's got quite curly hair and it's getting quite long. And the worst thing: its kinda blonde-ish :x :x :x

I hope so. She's got my brown eyes now. 8)

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. :)

Very nice, Norman. How many times did you burn yourself with the soldering iron?

Is that all? Once again, I'm a little impressed.

Back to my totally unimpressive workday now.

......got notification of a job interview working part-time with teenagers in a local youth centre recording studio. I really hope I get the job as I am really looking forward to getting stuck in and recording some of their stuff with them. Maybe we could use that compressor Norman? :wink:

What did you build? I'm still getting bits together for an 1176 clone.


Ooops! Should have read further!
I'm currently repairing two digital reverb units. My SRV-330 crapped out on me and I managed to track the fault down to the LCD backlight. It's gone Tango-Uniform and draws so much current that it won't boot up. A new display from Roland is £40! I'll just have to bite the bullet.
Also, My Lexicon Reflex started making weird (as in Not Good) noises. I need to replace one of the dram (dynamic read-only memory) chips. You try finding an obsolete for ten years chip! Eventually, I did. I just won 100 of the buggers for ten bucks off ebay! Maybe I can supply them cheaply to other unfortunate Lexicon victims!
Then I can get back to the 1176 clone (actually, I'm building two in one box).


ps Teenage Fanclub is excellent soldering music!

That's the one! It looks fairly straightforward to build. As I work with electronics, I managed to get an awful lot of the components for nothing. I'm also such a nerd that I have several 19" rack cases knocking around the house.:oops: That always cuts down on the cost.
I'm hoping to buy the pcbs this month. The only tricky bits to find are the 5 megohm pots and proper VU meters. I'm hoping that Gearslutz and Prodigy Pro might help there.
I'd love to know how that SSL clone sounds. I could do with a buss compressor myself (currently using a TL Audio C5021).
