    searching for potentiometer Knobs

    I know I am way late on this but just in case anyone else has the same issue, that style of knob was used on a lot of DOD, and Rane audio gear and has an insert, that insert cap can be lined up any way you need independently from the shaft position, I had a whole bag of those around 12 years ago. The knob on the right looks like the same one used on My MixPre which I believe you can't change the position on. Just in case anyone still needs the exact knobs mentioned in this post that are used by many audio companies, and maybe hard to find locally, please check my link. http://www.ehcknobs.com/index.php?id=KC

    Camera mount G3 more robust solution?

    SmallRig makes very HQ CNC machined gear at a very reasonable price for what you get, they will also work with ideas you may have to make the product better, if one feels it needs it, if the idea is accepted and it gets made they will send you one of the working proto-types. I did a re-design on a bracket for a Small HD Mon that got accepted and they sent me one, very cool company that really does listen.

    Audio-Technica System 10

    I know this is older but just in case someone revisits this topic, then this seems to be a pretty good test of just how the system my perform in a real world test. Seems pretty good for the cost of it, and the sound quality it seems to have well for DSLR use seems like an option. This shows an interference and soundq test inside and outside, however this vid I feel suffers from YouTube audio compression. The second test from BH is a higher quality encode so is prob a better comparison of the actual sound quality that can be expected. Has anyone compared the System 10 to the Rode Link?

    Cheap foot for Avalon right angle boom pole

    Interesting Idea, but I would think it might stress the XLR connection at the base after a while of use because of the length of a Switch-Craft connector and it being directly plugged in. Just a thought. Cool DIY though.

    Big Changes For Google Mobile Search Results and Rankings!

    This site does in fact use its mobile theme to show a simple format of the site on a mobile device, however Google does not like what it sees because its not correctly switching when Googlebot grabs it for the test, I have tested this on many sites including some I developed and they pass, my sites that pass use PHP to detect and redirect to the mobile versions, maybe IPS is using a JS based script or something not truly server side. I find the Google test passes no problem when the detection is done with a PHP based detection just a thought as to what could be the issue but I do not know for sure. I don't use IPS and dont know what it uses to detect a mobile device. Might want to contact the devs at IPS and bring this to their attention. because it means that Google will not give the site a mobile friendly flag in its index even though we see it does switch to the mobile version on a phone or mobile device.

    Who's getting an Apple Watch?

    Ya amazing, but do make sure you get the one starting at 10 grand it does everything and then some, emptying your wallet is one of the main features :-) http://store.apple.com/us/buy-watch/apple-watch-edition

    Lil DARling? (juiced link)

    I meant in comparison to what they make currently, I do not mean at the level of an SD or any of the field recorders at that level. Seems like it may be some comp for the Tascam gear like a DR-680 however.

    DIY Enthusiasts Beware !

    Can't blame you there, I still have Macs with drives, as I do like the build quality and engineering put into Apple products for the most part, but do not like the fact there is no physical drive. Also hat the fact everyone want you dl the product info what happen to a large booklet that had all the info on what you just bought and how to use it, remember those days. No if you wnt that you must dl it waste your own paper and print it out.

    DIY Enthusiasts Beware !

    I know about the whole DVD thing I am a collector so I want to own and I do own the physical discs I can't put a digital download in my collection on my shelves, if I cant look at it open the artwork and info then I don't want it, when we collected records we had all this awesome artwork, Pink Floyd, Yes, they all took a lot of time to create this, now the section with all the extra info in modern discs is empty, but the clips are still molded in to the boxes, in my opin they can keep there digital downloads I only want the physical Blu-Ray or DVD ... I still collect DVD's but I do try and get a lot of the really good ref stuff on Blu like King Kong that Blu looks amazing. Call me old school but nothing my opin compares to the pic on an a calibrated Panasonic Plasma set putting some discs in my Oppo and watching a good movie with great sound and dialog quality on a full sys, none of this o il just watch it on my tablet as so many do today, for me I want the real deal, dont get me wrong I like Netflix thats great that replaced Cable on my Roku for me but I only watch that on my plasma I do not use there service for handheld devices sorry movies were meant to be seen on a full size screen not some little handheld device, but subscribing to services like adobe no thanks not gona happen plus i dont like that it must call home what happens if you need to work and your internet is out and it goes to do its check with no conection to a server then what. you should not need a connection to the net to design something. I am completely against that model, subscriptions like Netflix at 8 bucks for movie streaming only as a replacement for overpriced cable is one thing but subscription to run my software, not on my watch. But common Tractors I hope the farmers get to together and revolt against it. People today must make sure the big companies don't get away with this nonsense period, the reason adobe can even do what they are doing is because many have allowed it, If you did not buy into it they would have no choice but to sell discs or close the doors that's how it works if they make no money sold no subscriptions or very few, that's it they are done. but many have bought into it so they stay in business again they would all be out of business if we never again bought there stuff. As you know their is power in numbers. Never let the big guy step on the little guy or its all down hill from there, they soon forget it is the little guy who made them the big guy. The public spoke up against the Comcast deal and well we see how that worked out, the DOJ listened the politicians listened, I got several letters back from politicians when I was involved with the fight against it, so it can work but we must fight for our rights or we will slowly loos them to huge companies who only care about their bottom line, not you or me.
