    RIP - Malcolm Davies, Amps, CAS

    Malcolm was a frequent participant here on JWSOUND having joined in May, 2006. I only heard of his death recently on Facebook and I have no details. I hope that one of our other UK sound mixers could give us some details on his passing. Malcolm was a good guy, he will be missed.

    R.A.M.P.S./JWSOUND Party - NAB 2018

    Yes, there most certainly will be an NAB party this year. I am putting up a Save The Date notice very soon. This year marks the 29th year for the r.a.m.p.s. NAB party that morphed into the r.a.m.p.s./jwsound party in 2006. Watch for the announcement coming soon.

    416 Windscreen/Basket to CMIT conversion

    Looks good! Finding the right adhesive was the original challenge for Les Drever (the founder of Lightwave Systems) as well as a rubber that would be the right compliance for the most common microphone, the 415 (later 416). I hope the shockmount can actually do its job with the CMIT, a considerable lighter weight microphone.

    Thank you Jeff Wexler for another year of jwsound !

    Thank you so much, Daniel, for your continuing support! I really appreciate it. Thanks as well to the others who have donated to the site, even if I have forgotten to thank you personally.

    Thank you Jeff Wexler for another year of jwsound !

    Thank you to all for making JWSOUND such a great online community ---- I started this forum in 2006 as r.a.m.p.s. seemed to be self-destructing. I think I built a good platform but it is really the core members who tirelessly and enthusiastically participated from the very beginning and have stuck with us over the years. So helpful to so many, I am forever grateful for your participation.

    New to the Forum

    Okay, I am trying to upload (actually "attach") an image sent to me by RockeTreeAudio which is 2.8 mb So, that failed, yielding the same error message. I will try and figure out what's going on. I looked back through history of file attachments stored on the site and there are many, many files that are quite large (a few videos that are 150 mb or more) and attached just fine. I am going to check and see if my server host has imposed some limitation that I am not aware of.

    I'm fairly sure I have set the size limit for attachments to UNLIMITED. Images that are larger, in dimension, than the limit (1007x701) will produce a thumbnail image in the post that will be smaller in dimension than the actual file (but will expand when clicked on to its actual dimension). Any problem someone may have had attaching an image or a file may be the result of some other factor. From settings for the site:
  11. I just watched a great video from Gotham with Glenn Sanders talking about the new Zaxcom ZMT3-Flex. I think this is going to be very big in the sports world, it's intended market, but may well prove to be a very useful item in our production sound world.

    Sound Devices MixPre version 3.0 Now Released

    No flames, Jon, this is totally appropriate and welcome. I am always pleased to have manufacturers making posts like this. My only concern, as everyone is well aware, is the abuse of this section by a few in the past, and when this section is used as a substitute for normal and professional product support that should happen directly with manufacturer or dealer. We do have one thread currently regarding one company's support (or lack of support) and I'm not quite sure what to do about it.

    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Nice! Thank you for posting this link. The "Nagra Stories Sound-men won't ever tell" from JBond is probably the best long running thread on the site, always providing such a wealth of history and interest for all our members!

    Where is the Senator?

    Not the same person at all --- JBond IS the Nagra guy and Senator has participated in those Nagra topics but he is not JBond. I haven't seen or heard from Senator for quite some time.

    Frames for sound cart

    Matt Bacon certainly has fine-tuned the use of aluminum profiles for cart building, his carts are truly fine, very rugged with several functional designs and configurations. What Matt says about the overall construction and choice of fasteners is very important --- as an early adopter of this method of cart building (in my case, using 80/20 materials), I had to learn the hard way what fasteners to use and what would hold up over time with what our production carts have to go through on the job. I did finally end up with very solid carts that have not required any ongoing tightening of the fasteners, etc. The main advantage, for me, as I have said before is that I did not have to rely on outside fabricators with welding heli-arc equipment and skills. A welded frame may be somewhat more solid than the ones constructed from individual pieces and fastened together, but it has not been a real problem. As for the idea of mastering CAD and ordering exactly the right profiles, I didn't go that route ---- maybe just too lazy but I know that Matt did lots of pre-design work which probably saved him a lot of grief. Good luck with whatever you decide to do!
