  1. Understandable. It's a hard no. Your attempting to alter the pickup pattern of a specific design. I equate this to an adhesive stick on hood scoop on an automobile. It might look like turbo, but it's not. You have to change the engine to change performance, or pony up for custom fabrication. A Ford mustang will never be a 4x4, and vice versa.
  2. That's an incorrect statement. I know this stuff's tricky, so I am not criticizing. The closer you get to the source, the more you reduce the level of refections coming from the room ( or tone). The further from the source, the more prevalent the reflections will become. It's Physics. Remember, Sound puts the "Fun" in "Physics". And, Please feel free to PM or ask more questions. I have a passion for Acoustics.
  3. Pretty much. I carry a wifi router and iPad to the majority of my gigs. 50 out of 100 hours behind the console are spent navigating through the layers and menu's. It's a joke by the marketing department on us.
  4. One post by@KenLac and everyone jumps in the pool. I wonder if he’s a secret marketer. This tread Turned out to be a sales persons dream.
  5. $150! I have an affinity towards older gear, it is not that I dislike new products, but that I like older equipment that much more.
  6. Remember MySpace? Might I suggest a T/C device with a proven track record, long history of customer service and support. This thread reminds me of the classic " Honda Vs. BMW" debate. " " I want BMW performance and reliability, with a Honda?" Denecke= BMW Ambient= BMW What if in 18 years you go to sell this item? Or even 10? I just bought a Denecke SB-2 from @Aural Fixation (Thanks!@!!) that is from 2001, That is an 18 year old T/C box. Still runs like a Rolex. Let that sink in. The year will be 2037 should you decide to use and then sell your T/C box in that same amount of time. Which companies do you truly think will still be profitable and in business in the year 2037. I am intentionally trying to not mention names here, but do you still have your cell phone from 2010? Are you buying for today? Or are you buying for 2037? Adds a bit of a different perspective doesn't it? I tend to buy for 2037 unless I really only need it for today. @KenLac You have to let all of us know what you decided to go with!!! You have to
  7. @Janik Hampe Could you print me one? I want it for CMC5. Make that two please. I’ll break one most likely. I only need the frame. I’ll work on fitting the fabrics and glueing. I’ll document and send you all results and tricks. I worked on some waterproof Lav Mic cages back in 2012, they were very successful. Ive been meaning to make a baseball but haven’t seen any frames until now! Best, D
  8. For reference. Royer R-121 Ribbon Microphone $1295.00
  9. EQUUS Magazine "The horse sees a broad band of the world to the sides and back of his body, but it is narrow. His vision is poor above and below the level of his eyes. Sights directly to the horse’s side but on the ground or in the air are difficult to see unless he cocks his head. Equine vision also creates blind spots. A horse cannot see a person standing directly in back of him. Surprised from behind, even the sweetest horse can kick in almost any direction. That’s where that tenet of good horsemanship---approaching the hindquarters from the shoulder---comes from. You want to make sure he knows you’re there. A second blind spot exists in front of the horse’s face, from his eye level to the ground below his nose and out to about six feet. A hand suddenly raised will appear to him to come from nowhere. He cannot see the grass he grazes on, the bit he accepts, the fingers that stroke his muzzle. He uses the whiskers around his mouth to sense these objects. A horse whose whiskers are shaved is at a sensory disadvantage."
