I really don't understand why you can't hear + feel the huge increment
on the ULN2's
Monitor + Headphone pots.
Of course I hear the 'resolution', but have no problem with them being
Wether I use the headphone or monitor out, the first or second steps are far two
quiet and the next one up is far too loud - there are 20 steps in total on each pots !
I live in London/UK, come and see me if you want + hear it for yourself. Here I am talking
about a hardware "limitation/issue", which is original ULN2's pots - the increment is far
too big. Period. Even my misses can hear it. And you could too !
BTW: there is nothing wrong with my Monitors or the ULN2 either - it's THE POTS.
Anyway call me an amateur if you want, but on this occasion THOSE 20 steps I am getting
are only "worth" 4 or 5 steps to me. EVEN if they were exponential, I would want at least to
be able to go from 40db to 80db in one db steps ! So, between 0 and 120 that would
make roughly 120 steps. AND if it was exponential, one would expect around 50 steps.

The older ULN-2s also had a different 'slope' on the pot.
Now the resolution for lower levels is much better, as there's an
exponential slope now.
Maybe this isn't the case with your unit.
I sent Stu a rant about this a while ago, too.
Which one do you have then? I am going to ask Matt at MH to get this clarified,
he never explained or mentioned anything to me - all I got was part numbers when I
suggested/requested smoother pots !
So you are saying that the new ULN2's pots have exponential slope?
Could you count the steps your getting on each pot please, as a thank for the photo I

And, I think you didn't understand what I was saying about
The software can be + is the limiting factor. period. Any software has
its limitation, if it is
"locked/programmed/designed" and can only offer 2db steps, no matter
what you do, you
will only get 2db steps. Do you call the "precision" - I don't !
The pots you are talking about (monitor&headphones) are analog pots.
I understand the digital/analog thing fairly well, mind you.
I never said they were Digital pots ! Well, I am glad for you that you understand so many
things, but as far as I am concerned, I have heard digital mixers were volume/level
increment/steps was quite big, and wether you fitted a 2000 stepped or smooth like
cheeks faders (well, there are girls with rough cheeks;-) it wouldn't have made any
difference. This is the software's limiting factor I was/am talking about.
So, you need both, high resolution/quality algorithm to go with the matching high
resolution/definition pots. If the software offers 400 steps increment, than you can fit a
pot that offers 400 steps and you get a greatly optimized combination. Which is NOT
happening on my ULN2, I call it a hardware limitation which are the POTS. And once again,
on this occasion - it is not a software limitation-but could have been. Not every software
are created equal, neither offer 0.5 DB steps. Do you still believe what you said: "...nothing
to do with the software..." Do you work for MH then? i.e were you referring to the ULN2,
because if you did you - you didn't read what I said: " at least it is NOT a software issue..."
I hope you guys are learning something at least, out of this thread;-) LOL
