    Found the burger chain for sound people

    Yeah they had a local beef burger when I was there, it was excellent. Also impressive how the food looked exactly like the advertisements.

    Sound Blankets vs Thick Blankets

    There's an old internet adage about feeding trolls . . I think Nietzsche actually said it first. Something about looking into the abyss.
  4. http://www.psypost.org/2016/09/researchers-find-evidence-hidden-hearing-loss-college-age-human-subjects-44892 I have definitely noticed this increase over time (difficulty picking out words in noisy rooms). Wonder if it's from blasting my headphones in noisy locations. (Probably.) Good to know it's being studied.

    Abetek Button-down Mounts now shipping

    You understood correctly! I was fooled by the little dot on the mic body, and DPA's note that the diaphragm runs "perpendicular to the cable". In three dimensions there are two solutions to that statement, and only one is true. This makes designing the mount a much simpler task. Thanks.

    Yep, I've been testing different solutions. The form factor of this mount is tricky for a side-address mic. Right now I'm testing a design where the mic faces front - this keeps the size roughly the same as the COS-11 mounts. The issue is then that you can't use tape front & center of the mount - you might as well bury the mic under a leather jacket. I'm also still working on the compromise between firmly holding the mic in place and acoustic transparency. Facing the grille of the mic to the side, the way the other mounts are designed, is bulky and unattractive so far. Thanks for asking. Would anyone be interested in beta testing the current solution (once I make a couple of revisions this weekend)? If so please PM me your address and I'll send you one.

    This may not be entirely age-related. . .

    Thanks Peter! Peter's been kind enough to distribute the mounts in Australia on his own . . very nice guy.

    Tiny antenna for Nomad?

    Thanks for the info Jose. Looking forward to it. Wonder what the price point will be.

    Tiny antenna for Nomad?

    Cool! It's an active amp, right? Hirose powered? Any range tests? I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been looking for something like this.

    Can you post a link? Not finding much with searches.

    Moving to New York from Amsterdam

    That's convenient, I'm just a bit south of there (Kensington). There are a wealth of cafes and bars in the area. Let me know when you're around, it won't be hard to pick a place.

    Camera Hop Hell

    Macs and Windows have a similar process by which developers pay to make those warnings go away. Ostensibly the OS architect audits the software as well. It's not always practical for a small group to go through that process. I believe if you go to your Security settings you'll find a box to check that says something like "let unauthorized software run roughshod over my system". Unless you want to use your IFB transmitter as your primary recorder, you won't have to convert anything. If you do, you'll need a laptop with Zaxconvert on it. Oh, and the Glenn who wrote you was Glenn Sanders, CEO of Zaxcom.

    Camera Hop Hell

    To me, sound quality is comparable, as long as you don't hit the limiters. It's the frequency scanning and RFI protection that you lose out on. (Although I believe Larry Sanders can be found here saying that the UCR100 is about on par with a G2/G3, rejection-wise.) 9Vs are great. Don't hate.
