O.k. a couple of fairly basic questions.
1) On most dj mixers there are eq
ratings and sometimes kill switches. A lot of eq nowadays will actually totally remove all
sound if they are all set to total cut.
However, a lot of these mixers have different
ratings on them. Some are only -24dB whereas some are marked -infinity.
actually more to do with how the frequency bands are placed? For example, some mixers with
higher cut ratings won't remove all of the audio if all 3 bands are down.
the eq bands need to be quite wide so that they overlap.
Also, is there a certain -dB
which is assumed to remove all of the audio? So basically, is there a minimum attenuation
that will remove all the audio on a 3 band-eq?
2) Input ratings
mixer (Ecler Nuo-05) there are two different line inputs; high-line and lo-line (0dBV and
These are there to accomadate differing sources.
Considering the gains
cover a wide range are there actually any real implications for mismatch of sources?
Eg. I can run a 0dBV signal into the -10dBV and just use the gain control to keep the
signal metered at 0dB and vice-versa.
I gather that in that case I could potentially
overload the input. In the opposite way (running a -10dBV signal to a 0dBV input) are
there any potential problems providing the gains are powerful enough to get the signal to
0dB? Does it add more noise? Because i'm not sure I can hear any audible difference in
