Ok - I think I'm getting a picture of how the Isolator sounds now. My impression is that it falls into the same category as the Urei whereby its output is a very pleasant, musical interpretation of...

Favourite carts?

Just wondering what carts people like round these parts - we've been using Stanton Trackmaster IIs for higher-end jobs for a while, but I'm looking to replace them.

I like the sound of the...

Hi Scott

Good review - Shorty's isolator sounds like a nice piece of kit!

Can you just clarify, though, how you were doing your tests? Were you listening first though the system with no isolator,...

If you don't like the easy way, then just use a sub- or matrix-mixer to combine the outputs (main and booth) of both DJ mixers. Use something nice, like a Midas XL-88, and you won't notice any drop...

We normally run twin-mixer set-ups through a sub mixer, though the easiest/cheapest way is just to run the output of one mixer into an input on the other.

This makes sharing a deck simple. Say you...

Didn't know anyone on here was aware of our isolation technique - how d'ya know about it, Richi?!

But since you mention it, we do have something pretty special which we call the 'Wobbly'. We have...

The mixer is in production and available now through Formula Sound or Funktion-One dealers. The price in the UK is 1385. You'd have to contact a US dealer for the pricing over there - I don't know...

To do a 300-cap venue really well, I'd install 4 Funktion-One Res-4s with 4 F-218s, with QSC amps and XTA drive. This would set you back something in the region of - off the top of my head - 35,000...

Re: It does to me!

Lab Gruppen amps, while not totally adjustable, have a very wide range of sensitivities, selected by dip-switch on the back. Personally, I don't care for the sound of them, though a lot of people...

Re: Gain

The PLX amps have a constant 32dB voltage gain across the whole range, which is actually the most logical way of doing it - for 300W into 8ohms, say you'd give any amp in the range the same input of...

Re: Re: Its good!

This is the digital drive age, like it or not! The higher the input voltage to the amp, the higher the resolution from the D-A convertors in the crossover, and the lower the noise.

If tampering...

Yup - a 6dB jump is certainly dangerous... But how likely is it to happen? Is the feature in question worth the risk?

Such a jump is possible on many mixers - the crossfader selection on a Rane...

FF-6000 feature - your opinions needed!

Hello guys - need your opinion on something!

The FF-6000 has a feature whereby one input channel can be routed to both sides of the crossfader simultaneously, the idea being that you can cut between...

Haven't had a chance to try the Res-1s as monitors yet, but they should kick ass, especially used with an Infrabass-212! Their sound is exactly the same as their bigger brothers so the accuracy is...

I don't think it would have been black - all the production models have the purple faceplate.

While you can use the V6 isolator with any mixer, it would only really work with models that had an insert loop on each channel, ie not a Urei or a Bozak. Not many other mixers, either! It would be...
