Hey, for those following the Mac subthread here -- turns out that Java 8 supports OS X 10.8 and above. You might get away with 10.7.3? (let me know if you do!)

Hey all -- 2.1 just released and available for download . Besides a couple minor UI fixes (they are absolutely neverending), it adds the ability to switch from file to file without seeking back to the start. The "Hold pos." button keeps the playing position when switching files, when it is enabled (...

It shuffles the files and you pick your favorite... so you can choose which mic you truly like best, etc. * looping * playing ranges * ...

Not a bit. Loading is very light at 1 gig ohms. I wonder why they always specify the capacitance when listing mic capsules? Electrical reasons unrelated to audio quality? Anyway: wow, so I can just use virtually any capacitance-mic capsule with any capacitance-mic circuit, as long as it has the exp...

if it's just a capsule swap, no sweat. Just remove and replace withone you want. If the original was too bright try a U47 clone. There are several various choices. C12's, 67, 87, and some co.,s' like Blue sell capsules too. look around a bit. Thanks! What about capacitance -- how much of a mismatch...

Kindly download again. If you're getting tired of this i can probably track someone down locally with a 64bit mac... :-)

Different error this time: Mmmmkayyy... Hmm. I just made a tweak -- if you could re-download and try the new version and report back i'd continue to be much obliged. This tweak i give a 30% chance of fixing it, but i don't have time right this sec to dig deeper. If it doesn't work i'll look into it...

Alright, I downloaded the zip and it unzipped fine. Great. One hurdle down. :-) but I don't have a clue how to install any of the files I'm seeing. Ah yes, there was bug. You shouldn't have to install anything. What you did is right: just unzip, open the folder, and double click on "ABX". I *think*...

Really cool idea! So, between four possible next features: 1) playing from more than 2 files (ABCDE...X) 2) normalizing levels (auto and manual) 3) playing in a certain region of the files 4) adjusting offset of each file (e.g. if the heads of the files have differing lengths of silence) ...it soun...
