CA-UGLY (original)--an easy question
« on: October 24, 2017, 09:22:05 AM »
Just found my CA-UGLY, had been lost for years.  Could someone please remind me what the little blue button next to the left and right gain controls is for?

on/off that some versions had, I believe
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

So if "on" preamp function is active and if "off" it is just a straight battery box?

I believe the original  CA-UGLY is a fixed 20db preamp and the tiny L R trim pots are for attenuation.Mine seems to have a light bulb for on and off inbetween the L R pots but no switch.

That describes the standard build.  The two original CA-UGLYs I have are like this.
On/Off is via insertion/removal of the mic input cable or the battery.  LED indicates power on.  No on/off switch, no clipping indicator LED.

Some had power switches included by request as pictured in the thread willndmb linked above, but that was a non-standard option.

Thank you all for your input.  Mine looks exactly like the one in the photo.
