Hello, I have not typical situation I want to help my friend who has md20 stage scape. He is totally not computer guy, he hates computers and computers hate him :) Believe me he even doesn't know too much what Google is, and he doesn't speak English :) And my friend lives 500 km from me, so I can't see his "Stage scape", so I try to help but I'm really in the dark. Maybe you could help, please very much. The problem is: he records mainly drums, and all his records have most transients equal 0db - it's not distorted (over load) but transients look like they are cut, like there is some limiter applied. And we want to record without that effect. So I told my friend to decrease all preamps/input about half of full. But the problem is still the same. I'm not sure how to turn off that effect, and exactly what is this? Limiter or something else? I read in manual about something called "Auto trim". I suppose it could be the reason. But actually in manual I can't find information if that "auto trim" is turned on by default or turned off? I suppose my friend had not turned on any function, because as I told he is moron in those type of gear. So I suppose it is turned on by default. But could you say what is this (is it really that "auto trim" or not?) and how to turn it off? Please help us. For any help great thanks in advance. Maybe you could give some step by step instruction with photos. We would be very appreciate. Best Regards, Wojtek
Hi, I bought a brand-new L2T, unpacked it tonight and off course testing. But it starts limiting with a red light after approx. 20-30 seconds. No matter which input I use or which instrument. I tried an acoustic guitar on channel 1, gain half way, master volume of L2T half way, limit starts and doesn't stop anymore, no sound is comming out of the speaker. Only the noise of the fan. Tried 2nd. channel with a mic., same story. Tried the red/white RCA at the back with an electronic drumkit, same story. The fan starts and there's no sound anymore. Tried the noise suppressing on/off. Am I overlooking something or is this one from the mondaymorning-production batch? Oh boy oh boy.
The first time that I took my system out and cranked it up I did not realize till later in the gig that the limiters we're staying on quite a bit. I only had my set the gain at 12 o'clock.
