    Something is up with the HTTPS version of the site…

    Right! I got the notice from DonorBox about Weekly and Annually options being added and just updated the donor button on my Weebly site. So, it's all good. Thank you for your help with this.

    Something is up with the HTTPS version of the site…

    First of all, thank you for pointing out the https issue ---- the site does not have https enabled but I am able to make that happen so it's under consideration. The only reason not to do it is that it will affect links that our members post: if the site is secure https, any URL that is posted that is NOT https will be flagged and blocked, resulting in an error alert. Most links will be https but some may not be. Now, thank you so much for your ongoing support for JWSOUND! There isn't a way presently to schedule recurring donations (nice idea though) but I will look into possibly implementing some sort of subscription/donation which could be auto-renewing or something. This would be totally voluntary, of course, I will never try to extract any money from our members ---- everyone has been so generous over all these years, it is much appreciated.
  3. This was great! I love all the music things Jimmy Fallon does on his show --- always very unique and always sound terrific! As for not knowing it was Christina Aguilera, her voice is so distinctive I think I would have known right away.

    I'm working on this issue. Thanks to all who have pointed this out. My server host company will look into this.
  5. Truly a wonderful podcast from CAS: "In Conversation with David MacMillan and William Kaplan moderated by Peter Devlin.

    Pictures up load problem

    I was actually replying to someone named "syncsound" who posted a comment that followed your comment from 2014. I thought it was rather odd, a very old thread, but that's where he posted it.

    Pictures up load problem

    There is a limit on the size of attachments (not sure exactly what the setting is now) so that may be the problem you are having. Take a look at the size of the image you are trying to post and if it is large (high resolution, etc.) you could try re-sizing it and then attaching. That's all I can suggest at the moment.

    Zaxcom ZMT-Phantom 2

    Zaxcom has just introduced a new ZMT Phantom that supports both phantom powered microphones and lavaliere mics. This is a great addition to the model lineup ---- now you will be able to use the ZMT-Phantom with lavs as well if you need to. Glenn did a video demo for Gotham which includes interesting explanation regarding full digital modulation schemes that Zaxcom wireless employ. Glenn Sanders shows Peter Schneider the changes made in the new version of the ZMT3-Phantom, including selectable phantom power, so it works with shotgun mics or lavaliers.

    ...and a surprising third act (laurel/yanni)

    This is wild! So pleased and honored, as always, that Jay Rose has participated in our online community, pleased as well that BuzzFeed wrote a story featuring Jay and JWSOUND ---- but "audiophiles", "message board", pretty ridiculous. Thank you, Jay, for all that you do, all us "audiophiles" appreciate your contributions. I just wish BuzzFeed had gotten the whole story right ---- at least they did link to our site.

    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Well said, Philip! Although I am still proud of my history and being one of the first to use DAT in movie production, it's not a format I ever really liked. I was actually happier in the earliest days of DAT before the so-called "Pro" machines came along ---- even my HHB machine which I used for more movies than any of the others wasn't great compared to any of the Nagras. Don't get me started on Fostex, could get really ugly really fast. When the possibility of file-based recording arrived with the original Zaxcom Deva I, I was totally ready to abandon DAT!

    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Your recollection of the year 1984 and your use of DAT reorders must be in error. Quoting from Wikipedia: "Digital Audio Tape (DAT or R-DAT) is a signal recording and playback medium developed by Sony and introduced in 1987." I purchased my first DAT machine in late 1988. Every reference I have found states that DAT (actually, properly referred to as R-DAT) was first released by SONY in 1987. I suppose it is possible that a DAT machine was available in some other country outside the United States but I would be very surprised if it were back in 1984. My first DAT machine was a grey market SONY TCD-10 that had only just become available in Japan ---- the Owner's Manual was in Japanese.

    We can help out

    As many of you already know, my dear friend and fellow worker, Don Coufal, is battling cancer. Don and I have worked together for 40 years, 67 movies,I owe so much of the success of my long career to Don's amazing and creative approach to the work and his total dedication to the job —- we were a pretty incredible team! Never wanting to be the person who needs help, at this time now, Don needs our help. Don's wonderful daughters, Emma and Libby, have set up a GoFundMe account to raise some money for Don during this time that he is unable to work. Don is managing to fight the good fight and has the same positive attitude and commitment I have known through all the years we have worked together. Go to Don's GoFundMe account page Don and me, "The Brinks Job", 1979

    Sound Devices and Audio Limited merger interview

    Well, I have tried again to make it work. There is something about the way the videos are up on YouTube that is causing the embed link to not function as one would expect on this site. Oh, well, no big deal, the video is only about a minute and half and it can be watched on YouTube.

    Sound Devices and Audio Limited merger interview

    I fixed the link which did not get embedded properly --- the full video should display now within Glen Trew's post.
  15. Hey, Dave, I really did not mean the guy was really clueless, I just meant he looked and sounded like someone playing a character who is clueless. Also, I love the style of humor, it just didn't seem to work that well in this video.It's often the case that improvs like this produce real gems of humor, but sometimes not so much.... always a risk and maybe I should not be so critical of the effort.
