Final update. I purchased the word clock daughter board for the RME card. We installed the word clock board in the computer and are now clocking the Benchmark off the RME. Seems to be stable and works well. FWIW

Jason,
You will not find a serial number on this C24 MKI, because its housing tube was changed out, many years after it was issued. And, unlike most C12, there was no additional serial number embossed on this model's connector barrel.

From the photos it looks like it's been extensively serviced by James Gangwer in the East Bay. I would therefore strongly advise to contact him: some C24 refurbished with replacement housings (which were likely supplied by AKG, or the mic was serviced by AKG) may also miss the original CK12 capsules*, with Teflon/Nylon CK12 as replacement, so he may have more information.

*James probably would not have done that- he is meticulous about restorations and respects authenticity in vintage mics- but it may have been done at some time prior.

Hello,

I'm trying to locate the serial number on a C24. It is not stamped on the shell as I see in many photos, and I can't seem to find it elsewhere with the naked eye. Can anyone tell me where I should be looking? Photos of the mic in question are here:

Thanks,

Doing some cassette transfers. My chain is Tascam 122 MKII cassette deck into a Benchmark ADC-1 A to D converter then into a Z-Systems 8 by 8 digital router and into my RME audio card on my Windows 7 Pro computer. I am using WL 9.35.5 for my DAW. I am clocking off the Benchmark ADC-1. Everything has been going smoothly until yesterday when a problem occurred. The client wants all the material at 96KHz 24 bits. Yesterday the clock on Wavelab started counting very slowly and even though the RME card app said we were at 96 kHz we recorded the material at half the speed so when played back it was twice as fast, Turned off the computer and turned it back on. No change. Checked all my settings. Turned off the Benchmark, no change. Turned off the Z-System router and no change. Waited about a minute and everything was back to normal. I am stumped. Any thoughts or suggestions? Some help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone!
This is Alberto from Fuseroom Berlin. Some weeks ago I started my own podcast that is going to cover topics of studio and music business, recording/mixing/mastering and audio production in general.

I thought it might be of interest to some of you, even for spending some time together, virtually, every week-end. If nothing, it's going to be my weekend therapy session!

I usually follow the format of:
- What's been going on in the week at Fuseroom
- Question of the week
- 2 things I've learnt this week

I am sure things can develop with maybe interviews, Q&A, gear talk, whatever else. Feel free to drop your input here, I am all ears.

The podcast is completely independent and unaffiliated with any physical or abstract entity other than my own and Fuseroom's (as is everything the studio does, for better or worse..)

I am always doing the podcast on-the-go or anywhere I might be in a weekend (could be at the studio, could be somewhere else) so my main focus is to be portable, easy to make and repeatable. For this reason I go straight from my iPhone mic to a standard production preset I've scripted. Apologies in advance if audio quality was not kept in the highest of my regards.


Thanks for the opportunity and nice to meet you, everyone!

Maybe 25V was too low, now the caps are toast.
Measure the voltage.

The 25V might be a bit low, I suggest you measure the voltage across the caps in action to be sure they're not overloaded.
Else I don't see any problem, so it really were the caps causing the noise - the easiest possible fix :)

Just an update:
I replaced the two 47uf 25v electrolytic (coupling?) caps.  So far so good!  The noise is gone.
I used the only caps I could find that were physically small enough, which were Vishay MAL203036479E3  and only 85c rated.
Do these appear to be ok?
https://www.digikey.ca/product-detail/en/vishay-bc-components/MAL203036479E3/BC5237CT-ND/8557366

All tighter spec'd and higher temp caps I could find had too large a diameter to fit.  (I know for sure because I tried some...)

The other thing is that the measured capacitance on these caps is higher than rated, (about 62uf each), but I guess that's not a bad thing in this application?

IMPORTANT NOTICE

We will be upgrading the PSW forums server, commencing Tuesday October 23 at 1 am. The purpose of this upgrade is to increase server memory, RAM, and output. Over the past day, we have experienced temporary outage as the server ran out of available memory; this also occurred briefly in September. We will be adding 100 GB of memory, plus bumping the RAM from 12 to 16 GB and increasing output to 6000 Mb/s. The forums may be unavailable for up to three hours (although we expect a shorter timeframe).

Thank you.
