Ken, Believe it or not,I was actually able to follow your description today, probally since I’ve been trying better to familiarize with the manual lately.
I was able to follow you every step of the way!
Getting a couple insert cables wouldnt be a problem, since their pretty cheap from what I just checked (I previously thought those were called Y-cables).
Yes, I had read the warning concerning the reverse-phase of the Insert jacks, and actually quoted it in my post above..
But what I’m wondering is what about instead feeding to the exciter from the mixers ‘REC OUT’.. using a cable with a rca on one end and a 1/4 on the other.
-And then feeding back from the exciter to the mixers ‘RETURN’ jack?
It’s all an unbalanced flow that way without the worry of reverse-phase problems… but would such a route jive correctly with the mixer?
What do you think?
By the way..
Your correct on your assumptions of the Exciter on all counts; An 80’s model B, duel channel.
The closest thing to a manual for the ‘B’ available is this on pages 1, 5 and 6: http://www.end80radio.com/Aphex_Aural_Exciter_Type_B_and_C.pdf.
The exciters really do a lot for the sound quality on AM in my opinion.. It just crisper and brighter and any muddiness there might have been just goes away.
I intend to use it not just for talk, but also an ample amount of music – I’ve got a Tascam DP-1 digital recording workstation (not for the air-chain) intended to provide a source of good recordings of the local artist.
So, do you think running out from the REC OUT is feasible, or is the way you described above still the better choice?
