  1. they won't be thinking for very long--they're going to jump on it.
  2. jerry carroll, the pitchman, is still at large. lots of nyc local tv commercials were hilariously funky. i really miss it. they proved that new yorkers had a lot of taste, but no class, just about everyone found them cheesy, somewhat repulsive in production value and concept, but universally loved.
  3. if i remember correctly the antar brothers, owners, took the company public and made an ipo, but misrepresented the financials and subsequently, after the stock tanked, they were investigated by the sec, then fled the country, were extradited back, prosecuted and jailed.
  4. in any event, for those who have never seen one of these masterpieces, jw sound presents:
  5. love those commercials. is your first spot on youtube?
  6. Professional Audio Built in production quality sound recording URSA Mini Pro has a high quality microphone and professional audio recorder built right in so you don’t have to carry around extra sound equipment! Use the built in stereo microphone to record natural location sound or connect professional microphones using the two XLR wide dynamic range mic inputs. The XLR connections have 48V of switchable phantom power so you can plug in everything from shot gun to wireless clip on mics for capturing every detail of the performance. You can quickly adjust levels using the external knobs and monitor audio using the onscreen audio meters.
  7. the only thing missing is a sign:
  8. Do you have a kill switch on the car? If they can't break in they can alternatively steal the vehicle and drive it someplace and dismantle the cage and the car.
  9. this quoted scenario is playing out a lot here in nyc and the jersey suburbs. very high and in some cases very unequal property taxes. and tough commutes even if you do live in one of the four outer boroughs. quality of life and quality of family life are supremely important issues that are linked directly to dual income earners with children. is there ever a do-able ideal situation or is always bite the bullet and make do?? as far as making do is concerned i would recommend setting time aside--weekly--to calmly and rationally discuss finances--avoiding flashpoint acrimony is key. the most common arguments between spouses are about money. having a long and short term game plan that both camps are in agreement with and keeping up to date with, helps avoid the flashpoint scenario that happens in those instances when it became necessary to discuss an issue. discussing the money thing makes dealing with it routine, just another thing to do and makes joint decisions less stressful. not easier, sometimes, just less stressful.
  10. Dear Diary: I sure hope MozeGear releases a battery version of the MiniPapi soon.
  11. and if it ain't a brick don't break it. these machines are truly classics. there is always work for the recorders to do. seems like just yesterday when they first hit the market. my oh my how time flies when you're getting old.
  12. Do you keep them (or something similar) at hand in your kit or generally, always within reach? Wear them at concerts regardless of sticking out in a crowd?
  13. a small rubber band that loops around both knobs?? it might be helpful to get a tone generator that has an output that is a reliable amount of db to test the input of each unit and see how innacurate, or not, the meters are. i have been told that any xlr split lowers db by -6, generally. the output of the audioroot should be delivering solid line level but perhaps the 5 pin out is chopping off -6 or more. a member who is more knowledgeable should jump in and clarify. what exactly is generating the rest of the difference can be sorted out one way or another. because of instances like this i was, at one point, seriously considering buying an RDL PT-AMG2: for instances such as this but i never did. now i want one again just to play around with.
  14. VER

    the rental prices are subsidized and/or offset by the other business they do. if you get requests via email to do work with any rental house's equipment (other than extra equipment you are budgeting and billing for) that you send a well prepared response that you can copy and paste into any email reply (strong bullet points) that states the very good reasons you will only work with your own equipment. it will save time/money rather than getting into a back and forth about it. if they want to argue about it say goodbye to them. and learn to live without them and their jobs.
  15. hello mfrs if there is rado approved radomax, radomad or a radomadmax on the horizon sign me up for one. i enjoy reading his opinions on design and functionality of equipment.
