12-Loop Effect Switcher w/Tuner Out & Master Bypass (Stag.) 12 channels/loops w/ tuner out and master bypass Uses: Turn on multiple effects with one click.

12-Loop Effect Switcher w/Tuner Out & Master Bypass (Stag.)

(See below) Use as a simple interface for activating back row effects on the front row of your pedalboard. Add true bypass capability to any effect and eliminate tone-sucking effects from your signal path. Use for effects that do not have on/off switches. Chain (1) or more effects per loop. If chaining multiple effects per loop, connect them all together using patch cables and the input of the first effect in that chain will connect to the Loop-Master "Send" and the output in the last effect in that chain will connect to the Loop-Master "Receive".

On models with the "Tuner" switch (*see models with the tuner out), plug your tuner into the "Tuner" jack and tune silently at anytime. Custom True Bypass Loopers. These are always in high demand….

Previously, the reason behind the different tones that different woods create has been explained.

Different Woods, Different Tones

The different tones themselves were not fully explored and in this article I will give a global overview of the different tone woods, the sound they produce and in some cases their purpose. This is by no means a complete picture, only a global overview. The Standards Alder Alder is a tree that grows in medium, temperate climates with a lot of moisture.

Noise. What is noise?


Noise is any annoying, disturbing or unwanted sound. Noise can have many effects on people. It can: Microphone. A microphone (colloquially called a mic or mike; both pronounced /ˈmaɪk/)[1] is an acoustic-to-electric transducer or sensor that converts sound in air into an electrical signal.


Microphones are used in many applications such as telephones, tape recorders, karaoke systems, hearing aids, motion picture production, live and recorded audio engineering, FRS radios, megaphones, in radio and television broadcasting and in computers for recording voice, speech recognition, VoIP, and for non-acoustic purposes such as ultrasonic checking or knock sensors. Most microphones today use electromagnetic induction (dynamic microphone), capacitance change (condenser microphone) or piezoelectric generation to produce an electrical signal from air pressure variations. Microphones typically need to be connected to a preamplifier before the signal can be amplified with an audio power amplifier or recorded. History[edit] Carbon microphone[edit] Further developments[edit] Cloud Microphones.

Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-Z Variable Impedance Mic Activator Upgrade the Potential of Your Microphone and Preamp Cloudlifter® Mic Activators® use phantom power from your preamp to solve an array of common issues with microphones.

Cloud Microphones

Cloudlifters provide up to +25dB of ultra-clean gain, maximizing the microphones’ signal strength and clarity, which lowers the noise floor and amount of gain required with any preamp. By allowing preamps to operate in a more comfortable gain range, the frequency response remains more intact and the self- noise of the preamp is reduced.

Sterling Audio ST59 FET. Sterling Audio ST59 FET Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone The Sterling ST59 is a multipattern FET condenser with a transformer-coupled output.

Sterling Audio ST59 FET

The features for the ST59 and Groove Tubes GT57 are identical, as are the published specs for sensitivity and self-noise. However, the microphones are not identical; the bodies and grilles differ, and the ST59 has a flatter frequency response. Like most of the Groove Tubes and Sterling LDCs, the ST59 uses a 32mm brass capsule with Aspen Pittman’s disk resonator diaphragm design. Switches on the front of the mic enable a -10dB pad and High Pass Filter (75Hz, 12dB/Octave). The mic body is made from brass with stainless steel head and grille. Violet Design Ltd. The Emerald. Violet Design Ltd. The Emerald. AKG Acoustics Perception 220. AKG Acoustics Perception 220 Cardioid Condenser Microphone AKG’s Perception 220 is a revised version of the Perception 200; both are fixed-cardioid, large-diaphragm FET condensers.

The single obvious difference between the two mics is the pad; the -10dB pad on the 200 has been changed to a -20dB pad on the 220. The Perception 220 is essentially a clone of the Neumann U87A circuit, including the negative feedback loop that provides corrective EQ to the capsule. The published frequency plots for the 200 and 220 are identical. Audio-Technica AT4081. AKG Acoustics C 414 B-XLS. AKG Acoustics C 414 XLS. AKG C 414 XL II Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone Reviewed By Recording, Mixing, And Mastering Engineer Michael Cooper. The AKG C 414 XL II traces its august lineage back to 1953, when the C 12 tube condenser—the first mic to use the CK12 capsule—was introduced. With the subsequent release of the C 414 EB mic in the 1970s, many design changes were put into motion. The tube was replaced with quieter solid-state electronics and the control for changing polar patterns was moved from a remote power supply to the mic body.

When the C 414 B-TLII was unleashed in 1993, mic transformers were discarded in favor of transformerless circuitry, resulting in improved linearity and clarity. But one thing remained constant with each of these redesigns: the goal of retaining the essential acoustic signature of the venerated CK12 capsule, which was common to (albeit modified for) each mic model. (Mic aficionados argue that the original CK12 brass capsule used in the vintage C 12 mic sounded best.) Audio-Technica AT4047/SV. Audio Converter - free audio converter for Mac OS X and Windows.

The package in question fail to properly clean up after itself on uninstall, leaving an erroneous entry in Windows add/remove programs panel, and previously caused false positives with the legacy uninstaller. The legacy uninstaller now detects this condition and cleans up after it. * Fixed a bug where the install would fail if a component shared among multiple installers (e.g. TBIA) was already present on the target system and had a higher version number. * Prevent Windows compatibility assistant from displaying specious warning box by removing use of the word "uninstall" in the version resource. * Update to Windows installer removes the reported InstallShield error message. 7.
