Re: Not Really Recording Related but.....

Wasn't that the endgame of corporate rock? To not just have an in-demand band, but a band that could open franchises?

Re: New Barn Studio build out

One of the better basic soundproofing references is free: USG Soundproofing Reference . The materials it uses are commodities, available nearly anywhere. I'm also a big fan of Philip Newell's books, but they're not as hands-on as Gervais', and full of materials that don't exist in North America. But...

Re: ADVICE: send in my re20 or fix myself?

So what does an RE-20 refurb run? I've got an ancient one that could also probably use it.

(Anyone know what Sennheiser charges for refurb work? Also also got a 441 that could use it, too).

Re: Footswitch questions for Subwoofers (DIY 2.1 sub-bypass)

I believe you want a latching switch. Quick experiment - get a guitar cable and a paper clip. Plug one end into the footswitch jack, then use the paperclip to join the tip and sleeve at the other end. If it's one way when the clip is touching, and the other way when it's not, that would indicate a l...

Re: Anybody bought anything from "Audiosavings"?

They have an "about us" that apparently isn't linked from the homepage: https://www.audiosavings.com/about-us/

And it's still pretty cagey. No address, no area code.

Google autocompleted "Is Audiosavings legit?"

They're also apparently on ebay, with a 98.4% positive over 700k transactions.

Once you've got a sense of what new ones sell for, you can recognize bargains when they crop up in CL/MGR/Pawnshop...

...but bigger hats are kinda oddball, and don't show up as often as 14"s do. Grab 'em when you see 'em.

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

They look a bit Jerry-inspired, but they're not Jerry's so nobody was interested at the time.

Put the Guild B-series, Gibson S-1 and some early Kramers in the same bucket. Great guitars that had a stronger second-hand life.

Also, find yourself a source of the little screws that hold the backplate on the modules (M3?). You will strip a number of them in the process.

Re: PM1000 Capacitor List for re-cap project - look ok?

I'm not finding the notes I used to generate mt BOMs, but I've got my assembly sheets to check against. I see the following: 7x 47/50 2x 47/35 5x 33/25 - you have 4 5x .47/63 - you have 4 - originally tantalum, I swapped to 1.0 panasonic film caps. 1x 1/35 - tantalum, swapped to film 1x 3.3/35 - tan...

Re: That NPR sound

They've also got notch vocal talent, who could probably make a dictaphone sound like NPR.

Our local NPR has hired some younger reporters/announcers through the years, and it's interesting hearing them learn that carefully metered NPR diction.

Re: PM1000 Capacitor List for re-cap project - look ok?

I've got a similar set of lists somewhere. I'll track them down tonight and doublecheck yours. The unmentioned parameter is lead spacing - that's the critical thing to doublecheck. There's one of those tant caps that's really under valued (coupling cap coming out of the fader buffer?) and about the ...

Re: can a DAW be noisy?

Is there anything plugged into the inputs?

Are the input gain knobs all the way down?
