Subject: RE: [motm] cheap mult trick

Heh. My use of Behringers (for me--your mileage may vary) is out of cheapness (they're cheap) and laziness (you select normalling via switches--no card flipping). The back jacks pretty much blow--my plugs pull out if you look at them cross-eyed. So the back of my rack is ∗usually∗ carefully arranged to avoid any stress or pressure whatsoever, but they still pull out. Many nights I've been happily tweaking my MOTM when suddenly something goes wrong--where'd the spring reverb go? Oh--it popped out the back of the patchbay. Sigh.

But I can't justify anything better or soldered until my studio is stable (i.e. not buying everything in sight).

hello all,
yep, my entire attic of doom is wired with Ultrapatch, although knowing B∗∗∗er (like D∗∗∗er is refered to sometimes - PLEASE don't anyone turn this into a thread) I await the day when i have to resolder the entire lot. saying that, we have a big pile of Mosses & Mitchell bantam patch at work and although these are almost the pinnacle of patch technology, they do go badly wrong after a while
however, if anyone runs Corel Presentations (on PC) AND has Ultrapatch - i have a pre-formatted labelling system i can email through (for that matter, if anyone has M&M 80 way & 96 way bantams, i have that too)
 anyway, the weekend has just started, i've recovered from lugging my recently refurbished LS1s (ex BBC active monitors - TUBE DRIVEN circa 1961) into the attic, my Claret is suitably warm, and a pizza has just turned up...   ...cheers paul b
