Aradaz is Back

Hello guys,

After 3 months of silence, I'm back.
The last three months were so boring.

Why??

This is the story,
a few days after I got my PC worked, I tried to make an impulse response of my Behringer MIC200 preamp. I was using a 5 second sine sweep at 0 dB, Tracktion as the recorder. My speaker was off.

The first trial ran smoothly. I made the IR. Turn on my ESI nEar 04 speaker, and then I tested the IR using a VST convolution plugin. Hmm sounded no good. I had to try to make another one.

The second trial. I used the same sine sweep at 0 dB. Looked around to make sure that all set, press record and played...

then,

ESI nEar 04: "BLOPBLOPBLOPBLOBOBBOB"
Me : "aaarrrgghhh"

a very loud sound came from my speaker, I forgot to turn the speaker off. You know, 0 dB 20 Hz to 20000 Hz sine sweep. My Speaker couldn't handle that. After I pressed stop. A huge ground sound / humming came from the speaker. I blew the power speaker off. A few days later, I sent it to a service center.

I just brought it back yesterday. I kept the speaker there for three months because I had to work out of town.

That's all, I'm not a good story teller.

Welcome back me...

Hi, Aradaz
Glad you're up and running again.
Broken loudpseaker stories are always a pain.
Do you have some more exciting projects (a new limiter ? a compressor ?)
Best regards,
and thank you for making your plugins
