Re: Perfect Empty boxes for shipping 1RU devices?

When I was building the EQs, I had a local packaging company that made a custom cardboard box. It wasn't that expensive, and the min order was something like 12. I think they were in the Yellow Pages under "paper products." They also custom cut bubble wrap to go inside, and eventually made a die-cut...

Doors?

Does anyone have good pointers to soundproof doors? The conversations with Overly & Kreiger made my wallet hurt. I see a lot of less prestigious names (HMF Express?) with STC offerings around 50. Pretty sure I don't want to pursue the John Brandt sand-filled door, though the Gervais "Superdoor" migh...

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

The BBC tried to make a thin-wall version of their diffusor in 1995: http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/rd/pubs/reports/1995-01.pdf The well depth made most molding techniques out of reach, they wound up with glass reinforced polymer. The test data indicates it's not much of an absorber, but an OK diffusor ...

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

To follow MSE's thought - you can get bendable/flexible plywood, where the grain is all oriented in the same direction. Much easier to bend than regular plywood, where the grain alternates, making both axes more rigid.

Re: Need Help With DIY Diffuser Design...

For a simpler, lighter, hangable diffusor, look up the "polycylindrical" diffusor.

Piece of masonite, bent into a curve, over a more rigid back piece. With a little effort, you can make convex & concave ones to make them more irregular.

Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear, enlightenment, and yer mom, man

I think I pulled a Nigel.

The bender assembly is in my garage.

It looks like Rai stone. I can't event manage a cent on it.

We're gonna need to rent a crane.

Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear, enlightenment, and yer mom, man

So let's wind back a hair.

What are you trying to do that the M1 and XP80 don't?

And for fairness' sake: I'm sitting next to a Moog Sub Phatty with an Arturia BeatStep attached. Nice pairing, but not at all what you're describing.

Re: MIDI / SYSex programming guides / info?

The whole point of sysex is that the vendor can open a trapdoor and send whatever they want. There have been vendors who used it for firmware upgrades. If you're used to working with Hex, you might be able to tweak things are recognize patterns...the Juno 106 would barf out parameter changes in syse...

Ensoniq
The poly aftertouch may be the exception. Or maybe it's something added to a Fatar assembly?

So the Nords are indeed cool.

You might also keep an eye out for a Korg SV.

How much need do you have for a pitch bender?

Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear, enlightenment, and yer mom, man

Turns out that the field of electronic piano-type keys is full of patents, particularly in the area of lever-action piano-emulation stuff. Fatar controlled one family of patents, and sold key assemblies. Used by Roland, Kurzweil, maybe EMu, Ensoniq, M-Audio, and of course the Fatar branded stuff. Ya...

If the need is more focused on piano emulation, look at stuff in the "stage piano" category.

Whatever the latest Yamaha Motif family looks like. Scale it for # of keys & onboard sequencer. Seems to be what I see traveling acts with onstage most frequently.

Not sure how it overlaps with the Korg Kronos/Krome family.

Re: MIDI / SYSex programming guides / info?

What's the model of keyboard? Does the manual have any info regarding it's sysex formats? There's frequently a MIDI implementation chart as an appendix, which should include the sysex details. With a sniffer like MIDI Ox, you might be able to decipher them youself. Watch the hex codes, and see what ...
