  1. So true! And being able to say "no" is to understand how valuable your services are to a prospective employer. It is VERY powerful. D.
  2. I second dropping the "badges" as well. The number of a members posts are listed after all. But it WAS a nice idea. D.
  3. Oh so sorry this isn't an easy fix, Jeff. D.
  4. Why? Not "why is it fun". Soldered enough Lemos to answer that question. D.
  5. Not really, but the new indicators of time spent as a forum member is a bit wonky. I don't care in my own case (I'm so old as to be retired) but I really would at least be a rookie after all these years :):):):) D.
  6. Every "sticky" has a correct solvent. In this case, the choice that will take off the sticky and won't damage your slate is good old common lighter fluid. Alcohol will not work. Goof-Off will eat the plastic overlay. Paint thinner? Gasoline? No, no, no! Buy a can of Zippo. Fairly non-toxic on the large scale of volatile fluids, won't eat plastic and will take the sticky right off. Been using it for years and it is my favorite. D.
  7. Manufacturers and Dealers. D.
  8. Ah, great start. You should be in great shape to put together an awesome rig. The funny thing? Every time I set up my whole system, I alway figure out a new little trick to make it better. This, as I get more comfortable with Dante as a whole "universe". Very cool education. D.
  9. Wow, that's quite an open ended question. I am using a bunch of 110v SG300 POE switches. But my rig is not anything like a mixer might use for location sound recording. I record music so my rig revolves around 32-track 24/96 recorders, preamps, large desks, producer station, cue mixes, monitor desk, video feeds, etc. If you are looking for a good starting setup, you should read the Yamaha documentation listed above and I highly recommend taking the Dante training provided by Audinate, at east the first two levels. That should get you started. Dante is actually really easy to get started in and gets very complex after that. You can run for years with the most basic setup, but there are thousands of ways to customize a setup to get exactly what you want. That part is harder. Doug
  10. SUCH A GOOD ARTICLE. It made my day. D.
  11. Zero and one aren't even the first two tracks on a Studer A800. What are you guys talking about? D.
  12. Lectrosonics' announcement. D.
  13. Yes, that complete Yammy document got me 85% to setting up my rig so that it works without any issues. Audinate's Brett in tech-support is awesome and the Audinate Level 1 and Level 2 certification training is way worth the price ($0). Like Rob, when I envisioned my Dante network rig, I knew zero about networking. After six years, I know enough. Haha. I can not pass the Level 3 exam in many attempts. It is about deep networking concepts and while I have learned something every time I go through the course, it just doesn't fit in my brain the correct way. Not having the knowledge in the Level 3 material does not at all effect my AoIP network (closed) but those that are trying to put a big Dante network on the existing network of a venue, or combine with some other network (say a live PA setup) will need this deep stuff to make it work. Good luck D.
