    Default Echo Layla Question

    Hey guys, have a quick question. So the Layla is very easy to modify for passing DC to the output, but how about a DC modification for the input? Anyone tried this? Just wondering before I pull mine out of the rack and start poking around.

    Thanks!

    that's an interesting idea. are you thinking of running your z5 through it?

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    That was the idea, but doesn't appear to be possible. Just discovered there's a digital offset cancel function in the ADC on the input side. Oh well!

    I had a bad feeling it wouldn't work... Hmmm... Time to think about a Raven Transcoder.. Lol.. Don't have a clue about building an ILDA to Light Pipe rig... Or just break out the old Black face ADAT

    ..Then obviously you do 'have a clue'.. And, taking the time to just can the ELCO / put in an ILDA I/O is well worth the effort.. Or, sure, just make an ELCO > DB25 box, etc, etc..
    cheers, M..

    hey Sir D -

    We've been using the 'MOTU 2408' http://www.motu.com/products/pciaudio/2408 (..cuz we've got so many channels in the big-Pjs.. ).. with great-success, but I wonder if one of these could be hijacked? http://www.motu.com/products/pciaudio/24IO ..homework-project, I guess..

    Fwiw, I think Steve R. has done a lot with the Laylas, etc, so, he might have some trix up his sleeve, but.. ya, doesn't sound hopeful, there...

    PS - When u gonna come out to Oakland and party with us at Chabot? Lemme know if yer ever out here again, I'll getcha hooked up.. Heh - I should ask them what they'd charge us to 'rent the dome' on an off-day (Mon / Tues) for the 'Ultimate CaLEM'..
    ..'OakLEM'..

    j
    ....and armed only with his trusty 21 Zorgawatt KTiOPO4...

    Hey Jon, can you record laser signals with the MOTU? Or is it just for playback? The layla works wonderfully for playback, but looks like a lost cause for recording.

    Ha! Love to get out there again, one of these days! I'd love to see the Laserium shows! Oh, and see you again as well!

    I don't think something like this would be best suited for the console, rather it be an external interface that would take ILDA in along with L/R audio, then light pipe it over to an HD24. Sounds like the Raven encoder thing is a perfect match, but not sure what they sell for. If it's a pile of money for one, folks would be better off with a blackface adat and just light pipe right over to an HD24, or even light pipe it over to the layla so it can recorded directly into Audacity. I really need to try this, changing color mod via Audacity by just moving around the waveforms on the time line!

    ..We just use it for I/O to / from Ableton (..which, of course, pairs nicely with the APC-40s, and such.. ..and the color-mods / editing you can do in Abelton just *rocks*.. Anyhoo, what I'm curious about would be the '24IO', there, as an alternative to the honkin old Black Faces.. TBD..

    Hmmm... Not sure if this would be a good purchase or not... You already have a modded ADAT..
