    Yea microbass, you kinda need to be kicked a little bit! :p

    Now quit screwing around with guys that obviously don't know how to fix your amp and get in contact with GM Audio in the U.K. Get that Trace fixed, now! :bassist:

  12. me and a bud had a look at it. the power amp is fine.
    the guy is a much better electrician than i and we proved the problem is in the compressor, but all the right components are there... :eyebrow:

    i cant remember now if we tried the pre amp without the compressor, im sure we did though and signal was fine.

    we came up with a temp fix thats not in use yet as im giving the techs one more chance; increase the voltage gain over the compressor opamps by adding 66kK ohms in parallell with the existing 42kohm(? cant remember) on the circuit board.

    So basically re-engineering a Trace design? :eek: Trust me man, Trace knew what they were doing. You have a componet(s) that is bad and it needs to be fixed. A fix like that, IMO, will probably not last long and it could cause even more damage. I implore you to find the real problem and fix it.

  18. If I'm officially derailing a thread... let's do it proper!

    Angry Mob: "We've found a witch, may we burn her?"
    King Bedevere: "Bring her forward." (Examines the girl) "How do you know she is a witch?"
    Angry Mob: "Well, she looks like one"
    The Witch: "They dressed me up like this.... and this isn't my nose, it's a false one."
    King Bedevere: "Did you dress her up like this?"
    Angry Mob: "NO...No.... a bit, a bit. We did do the nose"
    King Bedevere: "The nose....?"
    Angry Mob: "And the hat, but she is a witch. Look she's got a wart."
    King Bedevere: "What makes you think that she is a witch?"
    Angry Mob: "What, she turned me into a newt."
    King Bedevere: "A newt?"
    Angry Mob: "........... i got better."
    King Bedevere: "Quiet, quiet! There are ways of telling whether she is a witch."
    Angry Mob: "There are??? Are there??? Tell us. Tell us. Do they hurt?"
    King Bedevere: "Tell me, what do you do with witches?"
    Angry Mob: "Burn Them!"
    King Bedevere: "And what do you burn apart from witches?"
    Angry Mob: "More witches!" (peasant gets slapped)
    Angry Mob: "Wood!"
    King Bedevere: "So, why do witches burn?"
    Angry Mob: "Because they're made of... wood?"
    King Bedevere: "Good! So how do we tell whether she is made of wood?"
    Angry Mob: "Build a bridge out of her!"
    King Bedevere: "Ahh, but can you not also make bridges out of stone?"
    Angry Mob: "Oh ya."
    King Bedevere: "Tell me, Does wood sink in water?"
    Angry Mob: "No, no, it floats."
    Angry Mob: "Throw her into the pond!"
    King Bedevere: "What also floats in water?"
    Angry Mob: "Bread, apples, very small rocks, cider, gravy, cherries, mud, churches, lead..."
    King Arthur: "A duck!"
    King Bedevere: "Exactly! So, logically....."
    Angry Mob: "If she weighs the same as a duck, she's made of wood."
    King Bedevere: "And therefore?"
    Angry Mob: "A Witch!"
