  1. Eric was one of a kind, and helped mold all of us in his image. Though I didn’t get to know him until later in life, he had a great impact on me. I, and the community, will miss him.
  2. This week, we begin a series of free online seminars focusing on financial success for freelance sound pros. We start with two dates for New York area pros, followed by Texas/Georgia and Los Angeles over the coming weeks. Visit haltertechnical.com for registration links! RSVP now as spots are first come, first served! Note: This is for US residents only. If you live in a state or region not represented here, you can still attend. The Texas/Georgia will likely have more open spots and more general information, but please feel free to pick from the dates and regions that fit you best
  3. This post is about me, and the Strictly Sound Gear group on Facebook. Early this year, Rado put up a series of posts in the SSG group about the politics of voting for the CAS awards. They were disparaging, crude, and broke several of the group’s rules. As the admin of the group, I replied and asked to please keep the conversation focused on the gear (as that is the entire purpose of the group, to discuss the merits of the gear itself). None of those posts were deleted, and they’re still visible in the group. Rado took that reply as an opportunity to attack me personally

  9. I have a theory to why the -20 output on receivers became common practice. When portable analog mixers were prevalent in the field, many were prone to channel bleeding. Particularly on the Wendt X4 and X5 mixers, if the signal was too hot coming in, it would bleed into the channels next to it and into the mix. So to compensate, the output levels on the receivers were lowered to -20 and the mixers were set to -10. Even when the gear no longer required doing this, people continued to do it out of habit. Rental houses still often send out packages like this by default.
  10. Jan, You are an absolute inspiration in the community. The lessons that I've taken from you (ex: it's the "little things" that matter) are numerous and important, and that's only from reading your words. I'm jealous of those that were lucky enough to work alongside you. Your professionalism and kindness have always been evident on this crazy world wide web, and we're all better off for it. I hope you remain active in the community, and help us all to grow. Even more, I hope you keep writing, writing, writing. Congrats on the next chapter. Enjoy it!
  11. I've used 7506's for many years, mainly because people said they were the "standard" and because people told me they were "transparent." When I finally decided to test other headphones out, I realized there was a whole world of options available. Comfort, isolation, frequency response vary across models, not to mention pressure and ear fatigue. I'm not here to say that 7506's are or are not the best option for anyone in particular. But I am here to say that if you base your purchase decisions on what other people think about the gear and what your preconceptions are abo
  12. Yo Josh! Long time! I'll echo what others have said about an earset microphone, but add that a double earset is very important for the type of high intensity workouts you're referring to. They help keep the headset in place, and with some creative taping on the wire you'll be able to ensure that the headset doesn't move. The only thing to worry about from there is keeping the armature in place.
  13. Well, obviously it wasn't my parents who gave me this name!
  14. Apple themselves seem to have now gotten involved to protect Mac users: https://www.engadget.com/2019/07/10/apple-mac-update-removes-zoom-exploit/ Hopefully the mess is fully cleaned up.
  15. https://lifehacker.com/remove-zoom-from-your-mac-right-now-1836209383 If you've been following the news about Zoom's security flaws, you'll want to remove the applications from your computer as soon as possible. Sounderday participants can still use Zoom, but are encourage to either use the browser or mobile versions.
