Not sure where to put this so ill whack it ere 🙂
basically, im getting reverb / feedback on lower frequencies when i have the speakers quite loud as i just found out after listening to an hour long mix i recorded =l [will post that up soon!]
The speakers / amp and decks is all pretty close together… could this be the issue?
the decks are grounded properly n all that kafuffle..
any ideas wise ones? :love:April 22, 2009 at 9:07 pm #1197542DaftFaderParticipant
yeah that or shitty leads or too much wire bunched up in one place or too close to electrical socets .. i think that covers the main reasons .. oh and if after eiliminating all of that it c0ould be some thing a bit more serious like mby crossed wires in your mixer ect. ect …. but it hopefully shouldn’t come to thatApril 22, 2009 at 10:11 pm #1197544
alright… well everything u said there is happening lol
wires are bunched up, some of them arent the best, they work fine tho, and im right next to 2 plugs and a 4 way extension coming off each
hmm, will take a look after school 2moz, bit late to be banging up the volume in my OAP neighbourhood 🙂

Whilst the amp is on and turned up, try placing the needle on a record without the platter spinning. If you hear an increasingly loud low frequency hum then it’s a case of your speakers being too close to your decks or your decks not being isolated properly.
Fix this by either moving the decks/speakers or improving the isolation on your turntables. A cheap and effective way to do this is to cut tennis balls in half and place the halves under each turntable foot.May 4, 2009 at 12:54 am #1197541nonameParticipant
What Biotech said – it’s unlikely to be cabling related unless it’s a constant hum…
Make sure your turntables are set up properly, and try and minimise their contact with any surfaces that might resonate with the sound – like wooden floors, tables etc (obviously impossible to eliminate contact altogether, but make it as little as you can manage)… Put something between (like the 1/2 tennis balls, or some foam) that will damp the resonance, and if that doesn’t work then move the decks further away…May 4, 2009 at 1:06 am #1197543DaftFaderParticipant
yeah if it’s low frequencys only … it’s most likely feed back from the decks not being isolated properly from your speakers as lower frequencys resonate more and will be picked up by your needels trough your decks rather than higher onesMay 4, 2009 at 9:09 am #1197545
i think i sorted it… i have one of the turntable covers on so i can have my laptop on the desk sometimes… and that was making contact with the wall and i moved it off and the humming seems to have dispersed.
thanks guys 😀
