I’ve been hearing that fart for over ten years, and after hearing it today I realized I had no idea what is causing it. It’s so fartlike I’ve had boom ops joke, “Excuse me!” after plugging in. Normal XLR from mic to a Denecke PS-1a, then via a Lectro MC41 cable into an SMQV tx. Sometimes it’s a “boat motor turning over,” sometimes a near-squeaky “petite,” sometimes a proud “floor rumbler;” it’s always a little different. It seems to only do it once per startup. Other mics only have that deep “phantom power bump” sound. Are the electrons in the Schoeps doing some sort of happy dance when they get pushed by 48 volts?! I haven’t tested with a hardline. It seems to get worse with humidity. Heh I was just curious if anyone had any thoughts. Dan Izen
https://nyti.ms/2VjVWjA Researchers have sent a very tiny simulated atom back in time a fraction of a second, using a small public quantum computer. In other words, while you can't know both its velocity and the location at the same time, they've managed to compute how a wave function "got here" and reverse both to where it started. While complexity increases geometrically, a much larger future computer could conceivably scale this up. Yes, it was only a few qubits, on a tiny slice of IBM's smallest quantum computer. But consider how far binary computers have come in the past fifty years... [Please forgive the whimsical topic line. This is much more important than that.]
