    Condenser mic stored in a PVC pipe - technical question

    I used, and still have a few, PVC tubes for a long time. Never had a problem. Tried cigar tubes but needed to drill a little exhaust hole in the cap or I couldn't get them to close. Back now, mostly, to wooden boxes, but I no longer live on a camera truck. D.

    Regarding Mojave (10.14)

    Avid will reply with a costly update moments before Apple comes out with their costly new machines that don't connect to the real world. And the cycle will start all over again. Oh, and then all the plug-in manufacturers will scramble to catch up. D.

    The MCI JH 416, the other 416

    Just saw a blurb in an "audiophile" catalog selling JH110 machines, rebuilt, for $14K. https://store.acousticsounds.com/d/125203/Mara_Machines-MARA_MCI_HiFi_14_Inch_2_Track_with_Additional_Reproduce_Head_for_External_Electronics-Reel_to_Reel_Machines D.

    sound blankets berlin

    You should be able to find moving blankets on almost every continent if you look to the correct industry for purchase. D. Maybe not Antarctica.

    sound blankets berlin

    Yes! Moving and storage, not grip and electric. D.

    Recording a three man band with a 664

    Yes this! The Steve in question is a live R&R mixer of great acclaim and this drum technique works. I think some other great producer came up with it. It's been a long time since I have needed to know this stuff (I record almost no music with a drum kit ever). Maybe Philip can add a name here. Why do I think Led Zeppelin's producer? But your plan seems fine and should produce a fine result. Good luck. D.

    Recommendations for versatile PA speakers

    The QSCs blow the JBLs outta the water. Had both and there was no comparison. I had the 12s which were a bit big for what I was looking for, more kinda talk-back or playback on the floor. Not PA per se but the 12s would do you fine for, maybe, 300 people, and they sound great. If I replace them, I'd go with the 8s. D.

    Why I'm sick (Literally)

    Just saw the "man on the moon" movie (obviously didn't impress me, eh?) and spent the whole time feeling sorry for the focus puller. It was shot so tight and hand-held that half the picture was out of focus (a pet-peeve, I'll admit). Ugh! D.

    How many World Series games...

    At least six. Network can't afford to lose the advertising revenue. D.
