Hi there, I’m using some old-style MIDI cables to connect some older synths, however I’m finding that when I plug...

I recently bought myself a pair of Event Opal speakers. I’ve only had them for about 10 days, so I’m still...
Bearing in mind my room is untreated and I do the bulk of my mixing on headphones.
The humble speaker stand or desktop speaker platform can make a huge difference to the sound in your room.
I’ve got to the point at mixdown where I’d usually be thinking about sending everything through a couple of global reverbs/delays with a view to simulating a soundstage. Would this have actually been possible for a mix engineer in that decade?
What’s the ‘secret’? Shall I not bother with gating them.
Musician Chris Thile is quoted as saying he'd decided never to record wearing headphones again. I don’t get this. What’s wrong with headphones?
I’ve been looking for a compact CD transport to hook up to my home-studio DAC and I’m surprised by how expensive they are...
Why do people put delays and reverbs on a separate track instead of putting it with the track that has the EQs and compressors? Do you have to do this?
I’m looking for extremely detailed and natural omnidirectional microphones for two-channel small ensemble recordings on location.
I’m about to take on the task of running live backing tracks for Hacienda Classical live shows.
I have two sets of monitors. The first pair are 40 inches apart and the second, outside of these, around 55 inches apart.
I’m an amateur double bass player and eager reader. While playing gigs, I usually record my band with an Apogee Quartet...
Most of the advice I’ve seen about speaker placement suggests keeping them well away from the walls, but I was recently advised to place my monitor loudspeakers directly against the back wall...
I’ve read that pro gear should use balanced connections, but I’ve been looking for a mixer recently and find that most have unbalanced insert points. My interface uses balanced I/O, as does most of my outboard gear. What gives?
When does one need a headphone amp? I have some Shure 1840s, which are great, but I’ve read about headphone amps and want to be sure I am getting the most from the cans.
I’m using a Yamaha EMX 5000-20 for live sound and I seem to be unable to get the foldback working for some sources, even though it works for others. Am I missing something obvious?
I have a Casio PX310 digital piano. When jacks are inserted into the (quarter-inch) line out sockets, the onboard speakers are not muted. They are muted when headphones (or a jack) are inserted...
I have an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff effects pedal that I’d like to try out on vocals, drums and possibly some other things during tracking.
Can I link the S/PDIF out of my Boss DR-880 to the S/PDIF input of my Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 audio interface and get good results?
