  1. Just go to the website, and check it out, they already had most of my employers listed, the rest I filled in the address and contact info, start with registering and opening a claim. You can ask questions directly through email, it says 6-7 days for response, but I got my answer response in an hour. FYI I filled it out ( different forms) what felt like 5 times. I don't know why but I had to do some things twice, maybe because of their heavy traffic during the rush. http://uio.edd.ca.gov
  2. I was supposed to work the entire month of March... Hello unemployment insurance, my name is Dalton. My union sent out emails suggesting UI and if you get sick (with the real thing), your eligible for disability ins. Don't pass because you think you don't need or deserve it. I passed back in 2009 because I thought I was "too good/hard working". I wish I had signed up for UI then.
  3. Marin IJ link passengers exposed to corona virus were out in the community All my local work is cancelled until further notice. I started counting coins again.
  4. @LuckyNat I can't process this right now, but I will get back to it one of these days. Your response is appreciated. You have some proper points.
  5. I am working on a SD888 and going through the steps to connect a Samsung Tablet running the latest version of Android. This is how I got it working, your experience may vary. The USB A-USB Micro cable is a possible fault and should be swapped out if suspected. Not all USB-A_USB Micro cables are the same. -Download SD Remote App. Plug in the USB cable to the 8xx. -On the Android Tablet, -Turn on USB developer mode, -( it's a hidden key tap ,6 taps for me), Settings->about tablet->Software information-> Build Number ( Tap build Number 6 times to turn on developer tools) -Go to Developer Tools->Turn on USB debugging, -Set USB to MIDI (Developer Options->Networking->Default USB Config) -On the SD 8xx, Press menu -go to 1.POWER -go to 5. USB-A Charge Output -Confirm 500mA ( not 1.5A) FYI- _You have to use a USB A-USB Micro cable ( or whatever USB type your tablet uses) to use the SD Remote app. _SD888 does not function with the IOS Wingman APP. ( Wingman is being replaced by SD Remote). _The SD Remote app will be available on IOS soon. ( It will require the BT antenna) _Coming from using a 6xx series mixer, the 8xx series mixer was intuitive, easy to use, and required minimal head scratching. I got it setup in under an hour. _The colored LED's are very pretty. I like the color scheme. _I made the screen on the 888 freeze, I don't know how, SSD,SD1,SD2 were unformatted. The buttons still responded, I didn't put on cans to listen, power cycled the machine and no more issues. What would this thread be without a pic!
  6. Any puplicity is good puplicity.
  7. What TX are you using it with? Are you using a Microdot-TAF adapter? No repair, it's trash. It's a molded connector, I dissected one once, I'll post pics if I get motivated. The issue is not the actual microdot collet, it's the hair thin cable thats lost connection somewhere along the inside of the molded connector. I suggest chopping it off and selling an unterminated 4098. Put that toward a replacement. unterminated DPA mics still fetch a fair amount. Best, D
  8. It’s not you, there’s a recent uptick in first time posts from first time users asking first time questions. It feels like AI Bots learning our weaknesses, and how to sell us more shure microphones. Similarly to how email subject lines are probed to slip through spam mail. Its my problem not you in anyway. Welcome to JW, Cheers, D
  9. Is this a first time post???
  10. Alright, I'll go out on a limb here for you. Seeing as how I called you a bot. I almost rented a house from Ben Burt. That basically makes me Lucas certified. What worked for me in school was to go out and record a dozen or so "sound effects". I used a Zoom H4, and went around the Bay Area. I recorded baseball games, bart trains, china town fireworks, Muni car sounds, anything I heard that sounded unique. You are going for the emotion rather than the explanation. Just get your feet wet and make your rough draft sounds CD. Listen to it in your car, your headphones, on your tv. Everywhere!. figure out what sounds good and what doesn't. Along the way, you should find some gems. There really is no one sound to rule them all. Have you looked into how the sound effects were made for StarWars? It will give you allot of direction. Best, D P.S. Always carry your audio recorder around with you, you never know when or where you will hear that gem! FYI Harry Potter probably had close a million dollar sound design budget.
  11. Go with the 58! It will still work after we are long gone. Try to find a 58beta if you will be using this mic for vocals mainly. Once upon a time I could name every shure mic and it’s specs.
  12. My thoughts are on coffee at this particular moment.
  13. This was a major factor. I almost, almost went with the MixPre-3ii, I hear the 7 series MicPre's are unmatched, the 7 Series TC from ambient is rock solid, I might buy a MixPre-3ii next year because I have the sickness. I got the 664 for larger jobs, this little 702T also will be used for a plant bag in a car or maybe even a hot air balloon? TC was major factor. I feel like its my version of a Zoom H4N.
  14. What are the known tricks, tips and mods? I decided that this thing is awesome and I want it. I could have gone with the 833, 633, or MixPre3, but I went 702T. I got a sweet deal with an Orca bag. Do you love, hate, or hold a special place in your heart for this mixer? Has anyone made it fail? What makes it fail, if anything? Thanks all, Best, D
