    In ear monitors for production sound

    While they may not be in-ears (although I think the company makes a version that is) if anyone is interested in great sounding cans that can preserve your ears, I’ve been using the Puro BT5200 which features a Db monitor to gauge the volume and help audio fatigue and hearing loss from extended listening. The legitimatly flat frequency response is a bonus too. Double bonus: they sound amazing. Triple bonus: Bluetooth and cabled.

    bluetooth sound box

    A fellow soundie makes these and they’re really fantastic: https://demerbox.com/ It sounds great. It’s waterpoof. It floats. It’s nearly indestructible. It has a 50 hour (!!) battery. It has storage.... AND it’s hand made by one of us! Support each other! Cheers, Evan

    Zoom F8n.

    I have certainly been asked for my gear list. Many times. Savvy PMs/LPs know what to look for and can spot an experienced crew member by their resume + equipment. G3s and Zooms are red flags to them. And, quite frankly, I don’t blame them. In fact, I always ask other mixers what gear they use and have not hired/recommended some if they can’t match my gear.

    THX: The Deep Note

    “The Deep Note, the distinctive synthesized crescendo that is THX’s audio trademark, is one of the most iconic sounds in all of film. For the effects firm’s 35th anniversary, they’ve now shared the sheet music behind the sound.” https://io9.gizmodo.com/thx-just-shared-the-original-sheet-music-for-its-deep-n-1826357817 Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    Indeed! However, no one made any claims about the efficacy of government, Jay. This would be the same group of people that thought MK-Ultra was a great idea. Cheers, Evan

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Are they widely avail yet or was this a special delivery? Cheers, Evan

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    Someone (but not me) suggested that it’s a covert gov’t mind control experiment— wherein the file has an embedded hidden track and they are using social media to test the efficacy of this potential auditory subliminal message delivery system... Someone (DEFINITELY NOT ME) sure has some control/trust issues. Cheers, Evan

    Boompole end exit to side exit conversion?

    I have two of those XLRs sitting in my amazon cart but I’m worried about their stability on the end of the pole. I can see the whole apparatus snapping off. And unfortunately I am currently using the setup you describe here and I’m not happy with it. Cheers, Evan

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    I think what they are referencing is that the original source file was a computer pronouncing the word “Laurel”. So, I guess it is, technically, “Laurel.” Cheers, Evan
