Hi everyone,

I'm loving sampling with my EIII rack.  I am noticing that some of the filters are out of tune compared to each other.  Is it possible to calibrate these using software/diagnostics somehow?

Sure !

You need tha UST diskette (Universal Sound Test), and eventually an oscilloscope, this would be great.
Still, you may calibrate without the scope, but it won't be "that" accurate.

Let us know when you have the UST.

Okay great.  I have an oscilloscope.  I will look for the Universal Sound Test diskette.  Any idea where I can find one?

Here's a thread concerning the UST disk. You can download and create you own disk using omnidisk.

I don't have the service manual... actually all the documentation I have is the quick-start guide I suppose.  Anyone know where I can find the PDF?

Thanks for helping me out thus far!  I will see if I can figure out a way to get a floppy drive onto my PC.  I have a PC that runs Windows XP right now so I could make this work!

Wow what an ordeal... but now I have a UST disk!  Looks like it loads in the EIII.  What's next?

I've just done this on my EIII.  I don't have an oscillioscope but used some acurrate metering application (Smaart Live) and my ears.  Worked great!  Maybe not perect, but I was starting from zero trims (new CF HD).  If you want I can send you scans of the relevant pages from the service manual.

That would be great!  That's all I'm missing

Here you go.  I will say doing the ADC trims is a bitch, I gave up at that.

FINALLY got around to doing this.  Wow what a pain in the arse.  The auto-trim did well enough for me the first time around so I didn't go much farther than that.  Not having a test signal generator, it took me a while to get a signal measured out to 2.82v p-p but I did it!
