Re: Condenser Mic Innards???

I would tend to agree with the above. A condenser capsule is connected to an input in the GigaOhm type range. Subbing in a speaker in the ones to tens of ohms range seems problematic. A transformer with say an 8ohm to 200ohm ratio might work better. Maybe one from a ribbon mic?

Re: Reamped Bass Phase Issue

Is that 4' to 6' in the Stonehenge sense?

I recorded this one a few years ago....

it is of the "noise genre" so rather than describe that, just listen for a minute and you will get the picture.
Good stuff.

Re: Topicality - "The Situation"

Oh wow, now I'm really confused. Does it count as copping if you can't even remember from where you were unaware you'd copped it?

Re: Best Possible Vocal Recording

I read a post somewhere recently which argued the "best first good" mic for a home studio vocalist is not a condenser, but an re20. One of the key points was that the re20's reduced proximity response and lower sensitivity let it work better in a less than acoustically ideal room. Which is not me sa...

Re: Tascam 388 Transport Button Wont Play/Silent Motor

Took out those PCB boards and realized that I bent one of the pins that the board sits on by inserting the board the wrong way. Also realized that my transport board was not the last board to go in but it goes in right after the power supply board. This is the first stuff I would try to troubleshoo...

Re: Topicality - "The Situation"

There's a local guy who's a bit off, named Tommy, who tends to repeat himself. Very loudly, followed by a whisper ( a whisper ). So naturally, he became known as Tommy Two-times. I, being unaware of the reference for whatever reason (I'd seen Goodfellas, apparently that bit didn't stick), eventually...

Re: Patchbay Question - Where to connect ground wire?

I suspect a ground loop issue. Sounds like the patchbay is probably intended to be used as the star ground point for all shields of all balanced signals it carries. A shield only has to be connected to ground at one point to do its job. Connecting at multiple points can introduce these problems. You...

Is there continuity between all sleeves/ pins 1 on your wiring harness?

Re: Michael Joly is getting out of the microphone business...

This sucks. I had just visited his site a couple weeks ago with the idea of having him upgrade my mk012 pair. Is there anyone else that does a comparable job? Probably not as he mentions the difficulty of find a successor. Perhaps I'll diy it. Fortunately I have a third one i can experiment on first...

The i-beam is likely structural, tying the walls together to counteract the weight of the roof trying to spread them apart.
the collar ties are already doing that.
True. If the thing's just propped up there then the collars are all that's needed.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Not new gear per se, but just installed a pair of Antiquity II in my j mascis squier jazzmaster this afternoon. I hated the stock bridge p/u from the get go but had gotten used to the neck one and thought it was passable. Holy crap was I wrong. Feel like I have a brand new guitar now.
