Re: Waddaya's workin' on this Forf weekend?

Lots of yardwork, cleaned out the house pretty good for a BBQ party I hosted on the fourth. Finished making curtains for the room I've been fixing up downstairs, so that's done finally. Musically, getting back in touch with guitar after doing a little thing playing piano, specifically a Wurlie 200 I...

Re: Organization: shelves vs cabinets vs drawers vs hooks

For me it's all about frequency of use. On the workbench I have a "three tool" guideline, where I should really only have at most three tools laying on the bench at once, and the rest in a nearby organizer. Then the less used tools are in a chest a bit further away, and the rarely used tools are on ...

OK, so that sounds like a good reason to go for several smaller rugs. Easier to clean, easier to swap out for another small rug when you're too busy to clean rugs.

Re: help troubleshoot a buzzzzz on Beyer M160

I've got a Beyer ribbon that buzzes under certain circumstances, usually a laptop interface with no solid ground. Totally fine into a regular mixer.

Re: Ardour on a Raspberry Pi. The $35 DAW?

I was using Ardour on Linux for a little bit around 2004/2005, and it definitely wasn't fun to get working. Speaking of the Pi, anybody care to recommend a decent 2-channel USB audio interface? Toying with the idea of using one as a media server for music. I recently got one to use as a network prin...

Re: What musical thang didja work on today/night?

Hung and tuned a Meyer Leopard line array system in a big theater in the city - it's for some shows by the English National Ballet next weekend.

Re: Power Amplifiers in 2019?

QSC is a very solid company - they have some small install-type amps without fans.

Re: Too much equipment. Trim down?

It's still relevant. Moreso these days because I'm getting rid of stuff right now. Not just audio gear, though a few old project items have already left, but all kinds of stuff I was saving for when I finally bought a house. I've been in the house almost four years, and the stuff that hasn't been us...

Re: Headphones and comfort

Depends on the size of your skull, too... I've got one of those oversize Scottish melons, and some of the headphones do fit a bit snug. Changing ear cushions might help, but might also change the sound. You could try stretching the headband out a bit, though - that's where the pressure is coming from.

Re: Reamped Bass Phase Issue

4-6 feet of air delay means roughly 4-6 mS of time offset, which I think gets you at 180 degrees out of phase at somewhere around 200Hz, so you're going to see some lesser cancellation even lower. Throw in some converter latency and you definitely have a phase problem... which you won't fix using th...

Re: Condenser Mic Innards???

What's the capsule? Lots of stuff available these days if it's for a common part.

One of the common DIY condensor mic designs that doesn't need capsule polarizing voltage is the "Alice" and a few people are making PCB boards for that now.
