    Before you tell me there are better ways to achieve my goal, I should say 1) I already have this and am not in a position to make a further investment, and 2) a while ago I bought a box called an E-MU 1616 that has a nice RIAA dedicated phono input but comes with software so complicated and (I think) dysfunctional that I cannot even get the most basic pathway lined up to get the proper signal from my turntable to my lap top hard drive --- this has been extremely frustrating, but I have not been able to find someone with experience to come and set the thing up for me...thus I turned to the Masterlink soluition. But I seem to be stuck here too. I would really appreciate it if you could share some insight on all this, or perhaps direct me to someone who can help me.

    Thank you very much

    MY MAIN QUESTIONS ARE: 1) can you by any chance tell me exactly what the parameters are for a hard drive that will physically fit and work in this box and will function electronically? 2) will my idea of loading the software before installing the hard drive work? I could create a disk with the operating system on it, but I am afraid that with a fresh harddrive the machine won't function enough for me to load the OS from the disk.

    Hi, I saw that you have some experience with the Alesis Masterlink and wondered if perhaps you could help me. All I want to do is transfer some of my many vinyl lps to digital. The Masterlink seemed like a straightforward tool for that. I got a cheap Masterlink that has no hard drive in it but probably works. I figured I would get a hard drive, hook it up as an external drive to my lap top, down load and install the software, and then install the thing in the Masterlink. I opened the Masterlink box and it seems like there are just two cables to connect, although it is not clear exactly how the hard drive unit should be held down...no obvious mounting screws, just a space accessible from the front when all the switch/control assembly is removed from the front of the box. MY MAIN QUESTIONS ARE:

    Richard, I wasn't sure if you would see my post so I have messaged you. Hope you don't mind. I don't know what kind of advice you can give but anything will be appreciated.
    Richard, I found the last part of your post very interesting comparing brushes to mics…
    I've only been learning and working with electronic music for about a year now but i've been working furiously. I feel happy with what i've been able to achieve with my album but i've reached a point now where I feel a bit helpless with the sort of engineering "mastering?" parts of the project. The songs are essentially finished (all the beats and effects etc vocals recorded) but I can't get the kind of amplitude I want overall, I struggle with understanding exactly how compressors and limiters work. What is your advice on how I can achieve more volume without clipping my project?
    . Any thoughts on what I should do next?

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks much for posting the info on the Sony C-37A! I'm in Portland too, oddly enough. I found the Sony information as I'm trying to repair a friend's pair of Sony C-57s. One of the mic's unobtanium 6D-H3 tubes is on its way out and I'm trying to determine whether or not I can jerry-rig the circuit from the C-37A in its place. If you have any insights, I'd love to hear them!

    Hey Richard.
    Thanks for helping me fix my modular. I glued the tolex yesterday. It should run soon.
    I'm pulling my hair on a synthesizer drum pad. As i don't know anyone i can share technical problem with... I wondered if i could explain you, as you've been a great help, the issue am having. And see what you think?
