For one reason, it is far easier to hear distortion (non-linearity) on a pure tone.

I was thinking of complex circuits that test great for THD, but poorly for more demanding tests like IM and pulsed tests.

It also depends on how old it is.  It is a matter of which operating system it is using, older versions were XP and the newer versions are Win7.  It would be worth a call to ETC with the serial number to see if it can run Cobalt.  I couldn't find any currently for sale at the usual places, however usedlighting.com DID have one with fader wing for sale for $ 2395 but it looks like it sold already.

Another church I occasionally mix for uses a Presonus 24.4.2 (non AI version).  Some of the channels (with no input signal on them and/or with NO inputs connected to them) show a constant level of "noise" (~-60db) along with 1 to 2 bars on the input meter for that channel.  When the gain, for the affected channels, is down there's no hum (but still shows on the channel meter).  But when increasing the gain (to just below -U-) a hum is heard in the system (the hum gets louder as the gain is increased.)  The hum sounds like a ground loop, but it does not appear to be a ground loop (using a ground lift cable on the main outs still produced a hum).

Only a few channels have this issue.  It doesn't matter if phantom power is on or off for the channel.  Some of the affected channels have DIs, others have dynamic mics.

I searched this forum for Presonus related hums (not many results), but didn't see anything similar to this issue.

Thoughts?

Why would a skilled engineer look at audio as a steady state signal?

I will be providing for a Beatles Tribute next month and they have asked for a vocal doubler.  Running an X32 console. Any suggestions to accomplish this request?

Most basic FX engines can provide this effect. It is also commonly called "Chorus" or "ADT" (automatic double track). In the old days a popular recording trick to fatten up a weak vocal was to re-record the original vocal part onto another tape track. The slight timing difference between the two takes when played back together would sound like a chorus of two singers singing the same part.

To accomplish this with digital delay, begin with a short fixed delay (say 25-50mSec), then apply a small modulation to that delay time which will cause tiny pitch shifts up and down, and make the delayed same vocal sound like a second slightly different take.

I am not familiar with what Behringer calls their version of the effect but they probably have it in there.

Scott I was thinking the same thing they should be carrying that type of specific device. Did read up on the double channel deal and was aiming that direction to give it a try. Wonder if I can stereo pair the channels as they are asking for (5) vocal inputs and delay one side of each channel?

Yep, I own and use the Congo Kid variant of the console. They're not terribly popular in the States but I like mine.  Used...probably somewhere between 6 and 8k if you're talking the console with the fader wing, but it's really only worth what someone is willing to pay for it! Good luck with the sale!

They are more popular in Europe than the US.  As such it may be harder to get their true value here on the used market.

Testing and tagging ~200 leads last week I found five with transposed A and N.

Seems odd they wouldn't be carrying something if they require it at every show?

If it's really just a doubler they need, why not just sent the input to more than one channel and add a sight delay to one of them? Simple and should sound natural.

Maybe try that first before you get too deep in using the effects. But there is surely a way to accomplish this with the built it effects if needed.
