    Default APC40 Internals ... considering a mod :D

    Anyone got any photos ?

    considering an internal USB hub & Soundcard mod for my one where I'd be utilizing the foot pedal jacks as i/o's and adding a front 1/4' for headphones.

    Already have a hub to to use, although everything of course is based on having enough space.

    Reason for modding: Less to plug in and, well because :P

    Question though, any recommendations for shielding the sound card ?

    And yes I know I could take mine apart ... but its not with me right now

    Cheers

    Cheers, yep had a peek at it, looks like there's probably enough space in there... guess I'll wait till I'm back with mine and pull it apart.

    Any thoughts on shielding ? ... seen a few peeps modding their internal sound cards with art board + foil ... or foil+foam, reckon it'd do the trick ?

    For the APC80, I'm guessing just the hub would do the trick for starters and just a case of resoldering the USB connectors for the APC's to 2 or the usb ports on the hub board directly.

    I'm guessing its possible to put a powered hub inside the APC80 and connect a single PSU if you use a 5amp PSU (instead of 2x2amp) and 7ohm resistor going to the hub, which "I think" gives you 5v @ 1amp for hub powering to plug in other gear, shouldn't be too difficult.

    ** edit ***sourcing the PSU might be difficult perhaps **edit**

    CCTV cameras use 12v 5amp @ around $20 or less a piece.

    Confirmation anyone if that sounds about right ? :P ... any takers
