Re: capacitor types

Sorry dean, i gotta disagree with you on the discription of tubes.<p>In my opinion, as an avid guitar player and lover of old tube amps, i can hear the difference between certain tubes if comparing their warmth....etc. It does make a difference.<p>But w.r.t. caps, hogwash!!

Re: Need circuit designed

You should check out the Nuts and Volts back issues for a circuit, controlled by a pic, that will do the job. I'll get the issue number for you later.

Re: Mike In to Line in Balance

You can buy an Impedance matching transformer cable at any electronics or music store to allow the adaption of an unbalanced, high impedance signal (line level) to a balanced, low-impedance level (mic level). This only cost around $25.00 cdn. This is your best bet.<p>[ July 29, 2002: Message edited ...
