A very pleasant start to the day, which rapidly went down hill!!
Unfortunately I hadn’t realised that the Microphone didn’t come with the necessary XLR Cable so I can’t connect the Microphone. At the same time I realised that I hadn’t got a 1/4 converter for my headphones so they weren’t going to work either. Now you have to remember that where I live in Spain just running out to a Audio store isn’t an option. They exist but about 300 miles away!
All of this would have been a real problem if the mixer worked. I had assumed that although it had a US plug it would work with an adapter, but nope, nada, nothing! I now need to get a Spanish Alesis P4 Powersupply, but I can’t find one anywhere on the web (yet) and neither Alesis of their distributor in Barcelona have responded to my emails yet.
My other option is to try and hack an existing Spanish power supply and connect the 3 pin Alesis plug?
On the plus side the Manta TR1 USB IR Transceiver from Twisted Melon has arrived and is working just fine – although as I suspected it wont pick up the signal through the wall, so I have lost FrontRow on my Mac mini, but have gained it when it is connected to the TV which is more important – I think!
