Wow, just discovered this and am really interested! Anybody tried it in a Trident 80?

How many channels can be summed with this board? I guess there shouldn't be a limit, but I'm wondering why there is a cascaded summing in the block diagram?  ???

Hy

Can be used balanced inputs with this board?
Out of daw via RME fireface, to resistors board to capi 2-aca-bo stereo out balanced via RME in DAW.

thanks in advance

Yes it can be done. I kinda depends on the interface. The cold leg will likely need to be grounded. Some electronic devices don't like this, some don't care.

Hy
i have heard that signal from resistor board is too weak. After resistor board signal becomes a microphone signal and it is too weak for input in aca board. Is that correct?
If so I can put an input transformer in between to increase signal to correct input level for aca?
Is that correct.
For Chanel's inputs I will use passive summing resistor board van Ian.
This is idee rme out to passive summing resistor board out to 2 aca board

Thanks in advance

I am not really sure what "resistor board" you are talking about. In a  typical application, 47k bus resistors are used and they are fine with the rest of the 2-ACA-Bo built as we suggest.

The first stage DOAs on the board do the make up gain for the signal loss after the summing network. The second set is for a fader insert.   The console I installed mine in uses 10k for bus resistors and there is no issue with gain. I've also built a unit using the recommended 47k resistors also with no issue. The only way I can see you having problems is if you are not feeding line level to the summing network.

There are several passive style summing contraptions such as DB25 to two (2) XLRs and the end user is usually instructed to plug it into a preferred preamp for the tone of their liking, but that probably has more to do with the fact that most consumers of pro audio gear won't have, want, or know how to build a dedicated gain circuit for summing.

In conclusion, build one and just follow the instructions. They're awesome.

Thanks!

Hi all,

I just realized my console PSU is unipolar and would need the -24 rail to power AM10 on the ACA board.
How would you guys do it? Should I use a separate PSU?

Thanks !

Fabien
