    Comtek BST-25/216 on battery power?

    I ran my Comtek Base Station on the cart using my cart power supply for years and years. The power supply that I built is not regulated when on batteries alone but is regulated (nominal 13.5 vdc) when on AC. I never had any problems but it certainly isn't proof of what voltage variable/range is the actual specification. A more detailed spec would be helpful (like "Ext. DC 9 to 14 vdc") which most manufacturers publish.

    Second degree encounters

    So cool!! 1988, quite some time ago. Don Coufal, Roger Danielle and I owned and operated a small post-production sound shop, Northstar Media Sound Services. Lots of stories --- I may tell a few here at a later time.

    Pre Fade Listen --- listens to the sound before main fader (but subject to the mic preamp gain trim).

    New to Nagra!!

    Gustavo said: "I wanted to learn as much as possible from you guys, and try to find a nice top cover, mine has some cracks, please feel free to give some advice where to start." I think that no one has responded because we don't know where to start! It seems as if you are not too familiar with the Nagra III and it is not clear what issue(s) most concern you. I'm sure someone will jump in with some help/advice if you have a specific question.
  5. My father shot this piece with Neil Young talking about analog sound, digital sound, and his approach to creating and recording music. Quite a unique perspective, pretty far out there ---- but hey, it's Neil Young!

    Treatment in production

    Thank you, Don, for expressing my feelings on this subject, so eloquently.... I have been trying to figure out how to respond in this topic and here you have done it for me, for everyone. Reflecting on my career and how I seem to have managed to have earned a pretty high degree of respect and some accolades, it is obvious to me that both Don and I learned so much from eachother over the almost 40 years of working together ---- so many of these things are the most difficult to learn and have little to do with any microphone, piece of sound gear or production process.

    Halter Technical introduces the Scene Monitor!

    So, I know Doc Justice did have an answer, sort of, but I'm still quite sure that the HT Scene Monitor headphones will still exhibit the out of phase Comtek issue. This is not to slam these new headphones (I don't know technically any way the TRS plug could be wired to solve the Comtek problem and still operate in stereo into other devices that have stereo output jacks wired for stereo). I totally concur with John B's statements about the disconcerting mono "image" created by one side being out of phase with the other.

    Halter Technical introduces the Scene Monitor!

    I am thinking it is not possible to have these new headphones with ⅛" tip-ring-sleeve (stereo) plug to solve the Comtek phase problem (which I will say is totally annoying the first time I discovered that). So, a stereo to mono adapter may still be required. Maybe Halter Technology will offer a version with a mono plug?
  9. Halter Technical has introduced new IFB headphones ---- these looks really good, comfortable and durable. Check out the video Doc Justice has put up: Halter Technical is proud to introduce the Scene Monitor, a premium comfort headphone! Please visit www.haltertechnical.com to learn more about the product and where to buy!

    "Like" button

    As much as I do NOT like the "Like" button on Facebook (I have yet to ever click on the like button), I have added a Like Button to JWSOUND. Everyone should be able to see it in the lower right hand corner of every post. Clicking on it will establish a "Like" for that post but how that is registered and tracked, how it actually functions, is unknown to me. The button is grey until hovered and clicked on.

    Another wonderful get together this last Sunday ---- huge thanks to Chris, Steve, Devendra, and to Alicia & Biff for having us all in their backyard, and to Gene Martin for supplying all the great food! It was a glorious event I look forward to every year, bringing us altogether for some great socializing.
  14. Love this! What an amazing rig on an incredible car!
