  1. I bet it goes away if you set it to 24 fps. Whole numbers with whole numbers, fractions with fractions.
  2. I've spent part of the day exploring Jeff's new site with varying results revealing me to be the weak link. It is frustrating to be shot down, I got to the Article button and then it slipped away. To quote Jimmy Buffet "it was so simple it plum evaded me." While I was doing this I was on a Tony Joe White binge, preferring the B&W TV bit where he lip sycs because to me that version is the real deal, baked in my brain in 1969. He is primarily known as a songwriter and I find I love his versions warts and all. The feel just drips off of it. I may have posted some of these
  3. Pete, the last control room I helped build was in 1985. I believe 2 sheets of 702 will suffice to make a 704 equivalent. Fill the space, it is not rocket science it is acoustics. I am not pedantic, I am more pedestrian. Al
  4. I do love words but pedantic was not in my vocabulary, so I had to check it out. Owens Corning 703 or 704 - last number is thickeness in inches - great stuff that is user scratchy, seriously wear long shirts and gloves. Al
  5. Gordon Moore was the first recipient of the Farrell Katz Sally Award for distinguished service to the animal kingdom.
  6. Hi Henri, I have a 833 and totally agree with you especially "I’d love to have the ability to browse the menus, or to adjust the eq’s on the iPad screen." I personally think we are right at the beginning of the developement of the 800 series actions and it will only get better. Al
  7. The youtubes are good and it contains the entire album I have a 40 year old earworm back in action "Happy Trails to You, until we meet again" Period correct photo w/ Al Bob, Billy Bob and Beegie Bob, we were collectively known as the Bob family
  8. Dang, I got reinfected with this country disco ear worms, I'd been clear for 40 years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Xn_h5X_3qE
  9. "I picked this issue for my daughters birthday 41 years ago." A mile marker for me. JB - Be very careful what you wish for. Please post a picture of you in your polyester dico suit. This LP features Sheldon Kurland as the the leader of the strings, Shelly is Peter Kurland's dad. Small world. The entire LP is on youtube
  10. Here is the link to the RE/P library https://www.americanradiohistory.com/Archive-All-Audio/Recording_Engineer_Producer.htm and the entire site https://www.americanradiohistory.com/ Example - I read in RE/P "Someone von Someone always uses and SM 57 under the snare with the phase reversed and mixed back into the dry snare" and i respond to myself " I've never tried that, it seems so obvious, I'll try it next tracking session, and I liked it"
  11. December 1978 Recording Engineer / Producer was US the premiere magazine for recording engineers, there was no internet, there were few schools, Full Sail was still BeeJay Recording, and every issue was a treat was a treat boxto find in the mail. I picked this issue for my daughters birthday 41 years ago. This one has an interview with Geoff Emerick about how they did Sgt Pepper. The ad's are emotional for an analog dinosaur.

  12. A-wop-bom-a-loo-mop-a-lomp-bom-bom. Little Richard wrote the greatest (maybe the first) rock & roll lyric to describe a drum fill he wanted. Or – depends when you asked him – it was how he talked back to his boss as a dishwasher at the Macon Greyhound station. Hearing a hit in the frustrated number Richard pounded out during a break in an unproductive recording session, producer Bumps Blackwell hired songwriter Dorothy LaBostrie to temper the original lyrics' lip-smacking celebration of "good booty" and helpful butt-sex instructions ("If it don't fit, don't force it/You can grease it, make
  13. FYI 19 ms = 19 thousands of a second - that is not a lot of time.
