    The "Less Suck" Fader

    In 1975 in Nashville at the Opryland music theme park on a show called "Showboat '75", I added to my array of three Shure SR101 consoles a pot labeled "translucence". The music director was amazed at the subtle artistic difference it made.

    Zoom F8

    I imagine that feature is to save on power consumption, the thought being that if the track is disabled, there is no need to have the 48V DC-DC converter on. Regarding the safety of plugging and unplugging a mic with phantom power turned on, there is no need for concern.

    Zoom F8

    I can't say that I've ever tried it, but usually the input settings are not at all related to track settings. The only way to find out for sure is with a phantom powered microphone or a volt meter.

    Sound Devices and Audio Limited merger interview

    Thanks for your help, Jeff, but the original image was just a still shot from the interview. The full written interview article with multiple video clips from the interview is now in the link in the original post.

    Schoeps MK41 capsule cleaning

    Good meeting you, too. Regarding the gold wire, I'm referring to the bent gold wire that goes through the nylon shroud to the diaphragm assembly (unless this is a design newer than I'm familiar with to).

    The super-fine gold wire contact seems to be missing. GT

    Not a circle. That would take four lefts.

  11. Any film/video sound pro will appreciate the unprecedented collaboration of sound and picture in the movie "Baby Driver". This article is an interview with Production Mixer Mary Ellis, her crew, and editor Paul Machliss, about what it took to make it happen. https://soundandpicture.com/2018/02/baby-driver-production-mixer-mary-ellis-and-editor-paul-machliss/

    Sound sync advice using film 0.01%

    Hi John. I'm sure you meant 0.1% (.001x). Eric, assuming the film will be transferred to video for editing, it will probably be pulled down .1%, to 23.976. So that the sound stays in sync during the pull down, it should be recorded at a sampling freq of 48.048 (.1% faster), so that when it is pulled down, it will be at the desired sampling freq of 48K. However, it seems that the MixPre3 does not have 48.048 as an option, which is probably what your friend was trying to tell you.

    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Hi Jon. Keep in mind that a recording made with Nagra Master must be played back on a Nagra IV-S (or Nagra T-Audio) in Nagra Master mode. Nagra Master recordings are done at 15ips, but with the pre-emphasis of a 7-1/2ips curve, requiring the Nagra Master playback setting during playback. I'm not aware of a Technics machine that has a Nagra Master playback mode. I imagine that when you playback a Nagra Master recording on a Technics machine, it sounds uncommonly sibilant and bright by comparison, which is not an accurate reproduction.

    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    It's confirmed that the bias board is no longer available, but we do have some of the Nagra transformers for converting your existing bias board into a proper bias board for your wide 2-track heads. Price looks to be $255 for the transformer. Estimating 2-hours to install, plus time to calibrate.
