how do you clean orange soda out off a mic?

Okay. I believe this falls in the "dumb-ass" catagory but please be gentle. :cry: I was on a film shoot working boom op and sound mixer. I have a RODE-NT6 that i had positioned behind a wood brace to help capture room sound and specificly an on-set crash of a glass table broken by a ceiling fan. I h...

Headrests (chair headrests)

I know i might be nit-picking but...

Can a chair's headrest affect your monitoring environment? I mean people talk about relatively small things acting as obstructions causing comb-filtering I was just wondering if chair choice will "colour" your sound.


just a thought

Clint Mansell & Kronos from "The Fountain"

Not much other than a holla at ya boy. But Damn! I just saw this with my wife today. Its a powerful film; contextually, visually, sonically, and musically. I had been waiting for this movie for a while. But it blew away my expectations. Wonderful creative use of the surround medium. Both in the EFX/...

I'm running windows XP professioanl SP2 thanks for looking around for me. Although I found that page when I first encountered the problem and it didn't explain much to me. It has too much information on the subject of ACMFORMATCHOOSE for SDK (software development kits). I dunno maybe if I study it f...

Fluid Sucks

I went to another ENT who said he thought we should do all we could to avoid the lancing, and he fixed me up. I'd been on a steroid prescription for a week, which helped, and then we took care of the rest in a less invasive manner. He had me take a sip fo water, hold it in my mouth, and then with a...

Does that mean noise from the condenser or damage to the equipment?

Well sampling HBO could be a start and would be a welcome addition to my library but alas I have not HBO nor the desire to try for a license if I ever felt I needed to go that way. Also it's not quite the sound I'm going for. I'm looking more for the electrical thumping from my living room set. (aft...

MICING A TELEVISION (Not the speaker)

I am looking to mic a television to get the sound of it powering on. But I can't seem to find the spot to get the real "P-CLUNK...HWEIII" and the ZAP-burp. I'v tried behind it and in front and slightly above. I want to use this as a base element for a larger sound design. - transistions etc. It's di...

drum library reviewed in TO: Can't find the issue. Can You?

I have been on the look out for a drum library that was reviewed in an previous issue of TAPE OP and am racking my brain as to what it was called. For the life of me I can't remember and I just moved so all my issues are packed away in a box and only my wife knows where it may have been I remember i...
