DIY Mastering Console by ka-electronics.com / Wayne Kirkwood
« on: December 18, 2019, 12:44:28 PM »
Hi everybody,

I built myself a mastering transfer console comprising the following features:

+/- 5dB Input Gain
6 Step Low- and Hipass
Input Mute L / R / L+R
6 stereo inserts with flip function of each pair
7th insert with MS Matrix
Elliptical filter with optional 6dB slope
stereo width control
Tilt EQ for side signal
+ a good bunch of monitoring options

I totally recommend this project since its easy to modify and Wayne offers an amazingly nice support.
Regards,
Falk

Some more pics. I can only put the caption on the knobs later this month.

Saw this on real gear. LA makes great stuff. Your layout is nice looking and intuitive. Bravo

Real nice  ;D
It is not the same as 4+12, nor is it the same as 4+8, but 4+12 IS the same as 4+8+12....

I dont know if OP is watching this thread but how are you wiring the led part of the illuminated switches?  Would it be best practice to daisy chain the grounds together as well as the led power?  The switch is turning it on and off so it seems like a good solution.
Or would it be best to wire each switch individually to the power and ground?
If there's a harder way to do this, I haven't found it yet.
