Thank you for taking the time to respond. Here are my thoughts on what you have asked for:Audioman said:Hi Ian,
I think the new version of the db25 needs :
usually the DB25 board is at the back of the enclosure and the LCR switches will be on the front. The idea of adding an extra connector was so you could connect in a ribbon cable from the DB25 to the front panel and wire in your pan switches. The connector on the DB25 would be a 32 way IDC ribbon connector. Maybe we need a new board for the other end of this with the LCR switches on it?- Pan switch (L C R)
If you use 25 way audio connectors then there is no need to change the DB25 board. You would come in on a regular 25 way connector at the back of the unit and wire this 1:1 to another 25 way connector which would be the send. The connector on the DB25 board is then the return. You simply connect your patch bay to the send and return. Or were you thinking of something more complicated?- balanced insert (send/return) option in every channel
- another good improvement is the possibility to have a balanced inserts on the master of the summer
This cannot be done at the DB25 output because the signal level is too small. It needs to be done after the gain make up stage.
You would be surprised how many people buy a single board for just 8 channels. Also, many people want 24 channels which is easy with three boardsif you change the side of the board (more bigger) Theres no problem for me.
You can raise also the number of channels for pcb
( eg 16 instead of 8 ) a good summing mixer needs at least 16 channels
This is correct.This is my Thoughts for my little experience.
P.S. during reading of the thread i know that the shunt resistors are needed only on the last pcb (eg i have mount the shunt resistor on every four DB25 pcb on my summer) i understand ?
This is also correct.i also read that if you use the neumann V475 you don't need the shunt resistor is it right ?
