    Needing help with the Neumann kmr 81i switches

    This posts an interesting question, for wind problems besides foam/blimp/cat hair. What is your preference for roll off? In the mic analog roll off - preamp digital roll off or preamp analog roll off. I know my preference. Preamp analog roll off (usually most control and less phase problems). Perhaps this should be a separate topic? Feel free to move it moderator.

    Lectro SMDA drawing current when off

    Perfect idea Larry, I only worry that with one battery There might be a "low power-off" mode that the unit might slip into. Creating a batt rig and putting the meter in-line would be a next step.

    Cos11 Re-terminating

    The wires have a coating on them similar to headphone wiring. Search the interweb for videos "how to tin headphone wires" multiple great tips.

    cycling to work

    I could see my equipment rack (all 12v BTW) on the back of this with a large agm battery powering the equipment in the day and the Agm batt would have enough juice to carry me home at night. A Sonic Symbiotic Relationship of sorts... charge it with a few solar roof cells and bang! Your off the grid with a cool low carbon footprint! look Ma, no ground loops...

    Oktava MK-012 paint damage out of box

    If you are decent with a soldering gun Ben Stiller sells a kit, parts and detailed directions. Mod one of yours and A/B them, It's like riding a bicycle for the first time... It will wow you!

    Oktava MK-012 paint damage out of box

    Yeah, new should be show room clean. The real 012's to buy though is the modded vintage ones. The Russians made some great capsules on the early years but the active components they used were garbage, basically the mod's (Jolly, Stiller or Dorsey) replace all the Transistors, caps and a few of the resistors inside the mic. search ebay - oktava 012 modded. Night and day comparison to the stock 012's.

    Filming in Dubai

    Your welcome, language is fickle. What means one thing in one language can call down some bad juju in others. Ha! Best to you're film and great luck! FYI, he used the word "shooting in" everywhere "filming" was for the curious of you all out there.

    You think WE'VE got sync problems?

    I have always wondered why we don't use the Schumann resonance as the heartbeat of the world. We could easily adjust for the variables given that they are global. I'll bet some of you did not know the world produces a beat every 7.8 ms Not to mention it would be a part of US.... what we feel naturally (we cant hear that low but we sure can feel it!) https://www.sedonanomalies.com/schumann-resonance.html
