Despite how quiet the forum has been I've been busy here doing both DIY and OEM stuff. I wanted to post an update listing some new stuff I have around that is not on the web yet.
First - I still do all the parts for TAP-X DIY builds. That includes the Slagleformer modules and other bits inside. Very soon (any day now) we'll have a really nice case folks can get to make these builds easier to pull off. The wiring is pretty easy but it has been hard to get cases unless you are really handy with that kind of thing.....
Also I still do the resistor based attenuator systems. For most my OEM customers this is what they use. Only a few out there have the budget to use the autoformers inside.
Other new things are:
Bent Metal Handsets - really nice all metal handsets as an option to the plastic ones. I have 2 button (for vol up /down), 5 button (few relay functions - see below), and full 13 button version to run all the TAP-X type functions.
New input switching boards:
- 2 channel board for RCA connections for both right and left on one pcb. Also includes a mute and a misc relay.
- 2 channel board for XLR connections for both right and left on one pcb. Also includes a mute and a misc relay.
- 2 channel board for XLR connections with separate input relays for phase switching for both right and left on one pcb. Also includes a mute and a misc relay. Note your circuit must be happy with flipping hot and ground to use this to switch phase.
New ALPS PCB with 3 Relays on it for misc functions like mute, couple of sources, etc..
Very soon a new Stepper attenuator PCB (Goldpoint, Dact, Shallco) with 3 Relays on it for misc functions like mute, couple of sources, etc..
General purpose TVC switching board - can be used with other TVC's to switch up to 28 taps and 6 inputs. Also has relays for mute and a misc function.
All the above new boards can be used with either the PRM-1 module (or naked PRM-1 PCB) or the full width front panel PCB.
I still only have the choice of Hybrid resistor PCB's or the Slagleformer modules for attenuation. Have not thought of any way to improve either so they have not changed in some time......
If anyone has ideas for new stuff that fits in with the modular system then please do pass them along.
