Re: Oscilloscope fun

can you use oscilloscopes to determine variable r c circuit time constants???

Re: Recording piano in university practice room CREATIVE

The biggest problem of portability would be managing a microphone stand. This is ghetto, but if you want a dirt cheap, half-assed microphone stand that will fit in a backpack with room to spare, here is what I recommend. Musiciansfriend.com has a little music stand for $5.99 that collpases to be ab...

Re: Anyone going to AES?

Thanks supafuzz! The passes are an 'exhibits-only pass', but I'll gladly take it. I wouldn't have enough time to hit all the talks I'd want to see anyways.

Re: FLAC audio file format?

I'm not sure how much use FLAC has inside a studio environment, as it takes some CPU cycles to convert back to the uncompressed waveforms. I don't think many people would want to trade DAW performance for diskspace. It is definately a good format for sending out finished mixes, or transfering large ...

I'm going to try to answer your question about it being 'cheating', but I might get in over my head a little bit -- its been a few years since I've taken a signal processing class.

Re: Anyone going to AES?

I'm not planning on going to AES unless I manage to find a free pass, as I'm a poor grad student. However I wouldn't mind meeting up with some Tape Op people. I think the best place to meet up might be the Hotel Utah Saloon. It is at 500 4th st at Bryant, about 3 blocks due south of the convention c...
