Re: Boutique Amps Distribution’s LA warehouse hit by fire

There's an extensive thread about the fire on TGP, post from Avi at BAD on Friday with an update, closest to an "official" statement I've seen: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/boutique-amps-distribution-on-fire-burnt-down.2260081/post-32661128 Just terrible news especially on hee...

RM100 RF3 footswitch external power

PSA for anyone using a 5-pin MIDI cable and external power and external power supply on a RM100 3 button MIDI footswitch (model RF3): The RF3's 9-12 volt DC power input uses a less common connector, 5.5/2.5mm centre positive, same as Eventide pedals. If you happen to be using CIOKS or Eventide Power...

Re: Synergy SYN2 Master/Slave setup - Volume Issue - SOLVED

Great news! Is there anything to be learned from this alternate connection for 2 SYN-2s for 4CM connection of single SYN-2 to an amp effects loop?

Re: Synergy SYN2 Master/Slave setup - Volume Issue

I am curious about doing some mods again. I'm not sure how I'd go about yet though. I don't want to get into the situation I was before where I was overwhelmed with work and it taking time away from me actually playing and recording. I also don't have any interest in trying to make any of the exist...

Re: Synergy SYN2 Master/Slave setup - Volume Issue

The "fizzle out" after working briefly sure points to some internal issue, the fact that you can switch the order to get same issue & use them independently without a problem has me baffled. I only have one SYN-2 and a SYN-1, never run them together (SYN-1 is in a practice rig in a different place),...

Re: Synergy SYN2 Master/Slave setup - Volume Issue

The fact that it initially worked fine and started to fade sounds like there's an internal issue with one of the SYN-2s, very weird, especially since they work OK separately. Do you have a separate power amp to connect just to rule that out? Other than that, I'd reach out to Synergy. Also... Welcome...

Re: Weired sound with SYN-2 and HBE module

I Listened to your (short) clip a few times - assume the weird buzz at the end is what you are referring to, not immediately obvious to me what it could be. Do you have another module to test to try to narrow down the components? Alternately can you connect the syn-2 to a power amp or head with seri...

Re: Syn-1 out level with Mesa Mark V

Very good points in post above, I failed to consider the power settings on the Mark V were channel specific and would impact level of the SYN-1 if set differently.

Re: Syn-1 out level with Mesa Mark V

If you have properly connected using 4 cable method, there should be no difference in the level of the SYN-1 regardless of what channel is selected on the Mark V. 4CM totally bypasses the preamp on the head, goes directly into the power amp. Double check the cabling against the 4CM diagram in the SY...

Re: Knob position recall

MIDI will not control the settings of the pots on the modules or the head of any of the MTS amps that have MIDI (Egnater, Randall, Synergy). It would require radically different design of the entire amplifier. There's only a tiny handful of analog guitar amps (not modelers) that are completely MIDI ...

DIY or converted module soft case?

Randall MTS module canvas-style soft cases originally went for about $50 each in late 2000s. I have two- they are decent quality, nothing particularly complex about the construction or design, yet I have never found an easily repurposed soft case designed for something else of compatible size/layout...

Re: RM50 with Line 6 HX FX

I have HX FX, and get the same ground loop hum when using channel change functionality with several different amps (with & without SYN-2), hum eliminator fixed it, and allowed changing channels. On one (PRS Archon) I was running 4CM, and using one of the "PEDAL/EXT AMP" jacks on the HX effects to do...

what single channel modules offer tones not covered by stock Synergy?

Over the past month, I've noticed a significant surge in Jaded Faith, Salvation & rarer modded modules for sale online - almost all single channel, generally hovering around $350-ish pricing. Maybe that's due to pandemic firesale from lack of live shows, who knows. It's been years since I saw this m...
