If possible, I'd like to hear some A/B.
Glad to hear that it worked the way you intended it to work.
80hinhiding said:Good stuff.
I just want to hear and see more about it. By A/B I don't mean the normal comparative type of thing but I'd like to hear some stuff you do with it, and am curious about how it might change your masters
so I would really like to hear audio or some descriptive summary after you've logged some more time on it.
home_listening said:Very nice.
Your posts came up a bit when I was doing research on letter stamping - its nice to see the whole effect en masse.

Gold said:On a Taig micro mill. Sometimes I use a cutoff wheel and then clean it up with the mill.
I’ve never had much luck with a jig saw. The blades aren’t stiff enough to do a straight cut IME. The blades always twist on me.
I use the track saw for the long dimension. I use a chop saw for the short dimension . It took a long time to find but I have a small one with a 7” blade and a 1HP motor. Most smaller saws have a half or 3/4 HP which isn’t enough for 1/4” aluminum.
I also have a 14” chop saw meant for a cut off wheel. I was able to find a 12” blade for aluminum that was good up to the 3500RPM of the saw.

Those were the first things to get done. They have been done for years. Although they will get new faceplates.
I wanted a clean compressor and the Pico fit the bill. The way I built it is that it’s permanently in variable attack and release mode. The controls from left to right are Attack, Release, Ratio, Threshold.
This was planned out 12 years ago. There weren’t as many projects around. I’ve never regretted my choices. A THAT VCA compressor is what I would choose today.
Same with the DAOC. It’s a one trick pony but I need that trick.
scott2000 said:Are you saying that in lieu of these things, given the advancements, you would opt for a THAT VCA compressor? Can you elaborate a bit more on this?
...those are some beefy face plates...Am I seeing that right?
Sorry if I missed it but, what is that input/output amplifier if you don't mind me asking?
scott2000 said:Thanks...I thought the thickness was in relation to that.... Have you experimented with infilling those at all? Like just covering with paint and wiping the surface??? Just curious.....
