UNIVERSAL AUDIO LA-610

LA 610 FREQUENCY SWEEP

While my PC is on hiatus from recording I figured it would be a great time to take a look inside my LA610. I absolutely love this thing. It's my "go-to" box for all things recording.

 LA 610 EQ

I set it up on the bench and ran some simple frequency sweeps to get an idea of how the EQ responded. I would guess it is similar to a Baxandall type circuit due to the gentle nature of the
response curves. Examples of boost and cut at 4.5kHz and 70Hz frequencies are
shown.

T4 MODULE

While I was inside I just had to take a look at the T4 module so I removed the black
cover and pulled it up from its header pins.

I'm still working on getting my PC up and running again. The next install is BFD II. I hope to be back in business by the end of this week.

COLORED POWER CABLES

We've all been there.....
Crouched down under the table staring at the power strip in near darkness trying to guess which black power cable is the right one to unplug.

This can be a real problem if you don't want to accidentally unplug the computer that's running your recording session!

So, how do you prevent this? Some people like to label their cords. I like to use colored power cables. All critical items, like my computers, get red cables. 


I ordered mine directly from Stayonline.com at (12-11-14 updated link) www.stayonline.com .
The purchase process was straight forward and they were shipped in a reasonable time frame.

They have eight colors and many different plug types to choose from.
To replace most of my black U.S. power cables I ordered the NEMA 5-15 to IEC 320 C13.
