  1. My thoughts are on coffee at this particular moment.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. wait, I got this confused, AWG is the copper wire diameter not the overall diameter including insulation and jacket. I spent hours researching, ordered, the cable was too small. Then I ordered 3 different cables, I found the perfect fit. You win some, you lose some. Shrink tubing?
  5. 1.9mm=12.5AWG thats huge. I suggest ordering a few choices and going with what works best, keeping extras for future projects. markertek
  6. Sounds like a COS11 cable into a Lectro RX. OD is labeled as AWG, American wire gauge. 12 is big, 28 is small. recommended wire size is AWG 28 or smaller
  7. Lotus A composite image of Tesla's new Cybertruck and the 1977 Lotus Espirit (inset) in "The Spy Who Loves Me." Can't park this guy in the parking garages in the city...
  8. FYI, I bought 4 different types. All the recommended cables here, and for our intents and purposes we will not hear a difference. The best cable is the thinnest and softest, but still strong. I suggest making two cables from different types of cable and having options. Once you get started it’s almost easier to make 3 cables than just one. Most pro pro audio cables provide some sort of RFI rejection. Just do not buy speaker wire from the hardware store. Cheers D
  9. Yesterday they worked at Starbucks. Today they’re mixing your feature!
  10. I’m taking a chance on this one. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
  11. I deal with this conversation regularly on the job. Here is a version of my response. “ One day after school a young girl noticed that her mom was cutting off the ends of a pot roast before putting it in the oven to cook for dinner. She had seen her mom do this many times before but had never asked her why. So this time she asked and her mom replied, I don't know why I cut the ends off, but it’s what my mom always did. Why don't you ask your Grandma? The mom may have said this because she didn't think she had the time to think about it. Which is always a mistake. We always have time to think. We just think we don’t. So the young girl called her grandmother on the phone and said, Grandma why do you cut the ends off the pot roast before cooking it? Her grandmother replied, I don't know. That's just the way my mom always cooked it. Why don't you ask her? ). So, undeterred, the girl called her great grandmother, who was living in a nursing home and asked her the same question - why did you cut the ends off the pot roast before cooking it? (I’m sure she said hello great grandma, how are you, before asking her the question. Being smart is not the same as being rude, in fact the smartest people are often the kindest and most compassionate.) And her great grand mother did not reply “I cut off the ends of the pot roast because that's what my mother did.” And she did not say because it makes the meat juicier. She said, when I was first married we had a very small oven, and the pot roast didn't fit in the oven unless I cut the ends off. Whether or not this actually happened the story has a point, a truth. Not just about wasted amounts of cheap cuts of beef. The truth of the tale is about what happens when we don't ask questions, especially simple questions. When we just make assumptions.”
  12. Redundant. Solder will add resistance to the signal path. If you need extra strength, use additional strain relief ( heat shrink tubing). Also, be very careful when stripping the cable. Make certain not to disturb the insulation jacket, the direction the wires are turning needs to be kept the same. Clean with %100 alcohol and scrub with a clean flux brush, wear gloves, measure twice and don't use any tools without a perfect sharp edge. More... When the flux is heated it removes surface oxidation from the metal being soldered, allowing the solder to flow correctly on the material as well as forming a good mechanical and electrical connection to the base metal. Residual oxidation on the metal being soldered leads to poor quality connections and lower mechanical strength in the joint.
  13. Thank you? I think? That's my boy J-Diggs. The Bay Area culture is strong.
  14. A slightly elevated notch or bump in the higher frequencies to make it more pronounced. Not sure what this is. MacBookPro speakers gritty, or 70's analog tape gritty. The punch stays the same dependent on the mic being used properly and placed correctly. What changes is what is rejected. Your describing the microphones inability to reject off axis out of phase information. As @Constantin has mentioned, the best way to achieve this is to properly acoustically treat the room. Reducing unwanted out of phase information from creating second and third reflections that arrive back the the microphone out of phase. Kinda also saying the same thing, as in out of phase would be off axis of the microphone diaphragm.
  15. 🍿🍿🍿 anathema \uh-NATH-uh-muh\ noun. 1 a : one that is cursed by ecclesiastical authority. b : someone or something intensely disliked or loathed — usually used as a predicate nominative. 2 a : a ban or curse solemnly pronounced by ecclesiastical authority and accompanied by excommunication. It read like thats what you meant. OK Fire Chief Beatty. @SennheiserPS ? Can you do him a solid?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
