Re: Adding a Second PC - Which Interface?

There's very likely a use for the older computer. But I don't think it is in your music production setup! Are you THAT close to capacity on your DAW machine?

Re: Win 10 no longer direct recording audio to RX or Audacity

'Stereo mix' or 'what you hear' as an audio recording input disappeared from a generation of onboard audio drivers, presumably in an attempt to discourage direct recording of streamed music e.g. Spotify. For a time we had to look for earlier driver versions, or loop back physically. Now it's mostly ...

Re: Mac Tower battery dying?

So the Mac is remembering which windows should be open, but getting muddled about their screen position?

This just MIGHT be about PRAM memory getting confused. A new battery won't hurt. But Google for 'Reset PRAM' as well.

Re: Turn on speakers from external switch

OK, then compare the 'pop' from using the switch on the "extension power cord that has switches" with that from using the switch at the wall socket.

Re: Turn on speakers from external switch

We seem to have decided this is about arcing switch contacts rather than the more usual 'switch-on thump'.

Easy to check. Power up by simply pushing the mains plug into a live wall socket. Do it fast, do it slow. Different sort of bump each time?

You don’t have to wait until a string breaks to order some spares!

Well, it sounds like a barking dog! :-) >I still want to try to fix it. I think i just need to level it up and sort the volume. OK, I won't go on about it after this reply!

Re: New mix for opinions.. please 😊

Lots of good ideas in there (though what's with the barking dog?) Now, play it to someone who hasn't heard it before. Ask them to write the words down. If there's anything they're not sure about after hearing it twice (which for me is the few words after 'I feel you tremble' and then, I'm afraid, mu...

Re: 3 volts becomes 48?

This article (although from a reputable source) seems to use the term 'power' rather loosely!
