Calibration

It might also need that those modules will need calibration. The 40 channels are correctly displayed in the eagle software and we can operate the switch. Will let you know as the restore proceeds.

Don't know if it's the same with your particular model but with the Concept One there is a ribbon cable that connects the 4 channel QCP boards together. That ribbon cable is configured with a jumper between pins 1 and 2 on the first unused connector in the sequence. Thus if adding or removing modules you move that jumper to the connector that is now "first unused". If all the connectors are used there will be no jumper. See section 6-12 of the Concept's manual. In addition you need to reconfigure the software for how many and what type modules you have (i.e. mono/stereo, moving fader, mono or color monitor used). As Lou above states, those directions / commands will be in the manual.

Also look for any jumpers on the input modules themselves and understand what each is for as they might set for fader type or VCA.

Thanks bassmankr but the otari status don't have QCP Cards (cpu is internal and a computer is not needed to have it operational and modules are programmed through software with no jumpers (they made it more "user friendly).

Something might be wrong with the software programming as the VCA faders are working but not seen on the eagle automation pc. Will do soon a re-calibration of the modules to see if it makes it any better, main issue is that we don't have a calibrated vu-meter but only a multimeter to set input level of the 1khz test tone.

Will keep updated on the next steps

Test mode

Does anybody know if there is a way to test fader calibration on an otari status where read values are displayed onscreen of the automation pc like ssl as an example? Thanks!

It works!

All sorted out, the mixer went out of calibration and fader we're not recognized anymore. With a tester and patience we did the calibration again and now all 40 faders are working properly in the console and they do display on eagle properly. What is not written that got me even 5 years ago is that when you start the calibration you need to have all faders at the 0 mark otherwise will fail and all faders, even if reset to factory default, won't work properly

One Status back on Earth! Thank you for all the support!

PM me you email address. I have a files that is for moving faders but I'm pretty sure you can reconfigure it for what you have.

My D&R speaks midi. The original software ran on DOS but someone wrote a plug for it a while ago. The code is now public domain and my son is rewriting it for 64 bit AU. I was wondering if it would be possible to get the code for the Otari and other outdated automation systems. It would be nice if we could all get with the new millennium.

BTW - There's a nice little Concept 1 on the local CL for a grand.
