Yamaha CS 60 + Sony HR-MP5: First Date


Published on Feb 19, 2020 Metralon

"Playing around with these 2 boxes, just having fun.

The CS60 went straight into the HR-MP5. You are listening to the output of the HR-MP5, recorded @ 48kHz 24bit through a RME Fireface 800 in Cubase, using a Waves L2 Maximizer to dither down to 16 bit. The Youtube audio compression algorithm tops it of (ugh). No processing, no eq or limiting; none of that. Just a plain and simple, direct recording of the HR-MP5.

Some distortion occurred around 20 ~ 22 minutes. Not sure why; input levels on the metering function of the MP5 looked fine. I adjusted input levels on the interface's input, I dialed down the output level of the CS 60, and lowered input levels on the MP5. All was fine afterwards in terms of sound - although input level on the MP5's was pretty low at that point. The thing with the MP5 is: jacks are calibrated at -10dB; these are single ended, so unbalanced."
