  1. Thanks! But what I need is the thin wire between the headphones. I can sort of work with what I have and I think litz wire, some paint and flexible enough shrink tubes will get me far. But I just can't understand that these cables, or wires perhaps, are not sold in bulk. But then again there's a lot I don't understand.
  2. That's the thing, the phones I'm trying to repair are mostly 7506s, and that wire is a very specific thickness and flexibility. I've looked into litz wire as well and that seems to work, but I'd have to put a jacket on two of those wires myself, and right about there's where my competence ends. And also, any old thin wire would do, but it doesn't really suit the national public radio to go around with frankenphones, IMO Still looking!
  3. Checked it out. Thing is, there's no real store I can go to and actually see it, the only way is through the internet and potentially order the wrong product over and over.. Very frustrating.
  4. Thanks! And I’ve thought about this myself, that I can just take any wine. Right now I’m repurposing these tiny cables from other headphones, where the plastic has broken straight off but all the cabling is intact. Works. But for the most part, these cables have to small enough and flexible enough to fit in all the special little nooks and crannies of the headphones. I’m sure I can find what I need, but I find scrolling through the internet looking at pictures a bit hard; not one of the cables I find actually look like the cables I want, and that makes me think that I’ll just end up ordering t
  5. Hello gang! I'm sorry if this has been covered already, I searched and found nothing. So, I work in radio on national public radio. We have a bunch of dead headphones, mostly due to broken wires inside the headphones, not the cable. I'm talking about the wire that go between the cups. It's a two core cable, where the wires are red and another color. And they're super thin. The jacket is hardly a mm (bear with me, I'm European) in width, and inside the jacket sits two even thinner wires. I think you know what I mean. Can you buy these cables in length? I'd gladly
  6. I think it's not going to be long before this tech can be used in our business, surely. But it won't replace ADR entirely, because really, that's what it could potentially replace or apply to. Someone still has to record the voice on set. Think of it in terms of how CGI is used. You can do pretty much anything with CGI these days. Dead actor? No problem. But if you look at it long enough you're gonna see that it's an animated, dead, human. Uncanny valley. The same principle will probably apply to voice replacement. It will be a tool that will be useful for certain words here
  7. Don't know. But probably they're mixing. Not sure when it's mouth or why, but I remember it being like when it's explosions or engineer related stuff, engines.. Definitely the metal isn't voice. The movie goes in and out of fantasy and reality a lot so maybe the mouth sounds are a representation of like fantasy and unreal things and that there's an unclear distinction between the two worlds for the main character. It's a cool concept.
  8. Instant like on your post! But seriously, can't agree more. This site is awesome.
  9. Not sure if there isn't already a thread about this, but what the hey.. Here goes : The film that wanted me starting with sound in the first place without me really noticing was probably THX1138. I had seen American Graffiti and loved the way it played (back then I wasn't aware of sound design really, even though I was quite into music and composing, probably knew it instinctively..) and so I was just curious what George Lucas had done before that, so I saw thx1138 and was just floored with the sound design. I haven't dared to see it again, I want that memory.. But in my mind the
  10. Freddan! Skriver till dig på messenger On my radio station we daily use iPhone to broadcast audio with. Often times we just use the built in mic, but we do have some iRig devices we use for using other mics. For simultaneously charging and using a device it's been tricky. The two lightning ports doesn't actually work. One port is for charging and the other can carry audio both ways, so if you want to use a charger AND am iRig device that won't help. You could solder an unbalanced cable that does the trick, I've done a lot of them and they work, but not great. They work
  11. Awesome! I came to think about a Hayao Miyazaki film, the last one he did, The Wind Rises, where all the machines and explosions basically are created by mouth. Kinda inspiring. https://youtu.be/vh57zcmI3WQ
  12. Again, I'd buy an actual tumbleweed if it had a Lectrosonics logo. Just saying
  13. Now I think I know what the trouble is.. So my way of reading is just going through the forums. Usually I’m on my iPhone using safari, which was the case when I wrote the post. Now on my iPad I can see the buttons clear as day, but they’re not on my iPhone. Don’t know if that helps. The first image is from the iPhone and the second is from the iPad.
  14. Great work, Jeff! I'm missing one function.. On the top of each forum there used to be a button saying Mark Read, which does what it says, marks all the topics in the forum you're currently reading as read. Right now there's a button in the same position as the old one saying "mark site as read " which also does what it says, IE marks the whole site and all the forums and topics as read. I might have missed something in the new design, or I'm just too early in pointing this out, but that mark forum as read button is missing for me. Edit: there's actually a mark forum as read butto
  15. Reaper could do all of what you need, too. It's not free, but you can evaluate for a very long time until you realise that it's wonderful and you could pay anything for it but it's still only $200 or $60, depending on usage.
