Hey, while we are on topic of T-Racks, what are your thoughts on their MAX suite?
They have come a lonnnggg way.

.. thoughts people?


I haven't tried their most recent offerings but the software was pretty bad a couple of years ago. At that time they seemed to only be offering ways of "winning" the loudness wars. I was not impressed. Maybe I should see what the currently have to offer. Thanks!

Yeah, I'm really interested where I can get them too.
No one probably reads this thread:(

ebay is the only one site where you can find this kind of units; but you will need a lot of luck because everyday is more rare to see them for sell there!!.

I am in the mod process until because I have not time but have some ideas for but need study more in detail that ideas and its effects. Its a shame but there is no description in anywhere about mods for these units. Do you??

I'm not 100% sure, but it's my impression that the M 934 C was always made with a Mylar diaphragm.

--About a dozen years ago I bought a pair of M 221 B microphones with M 934 B two-pattern capsules from a seller on eBay. I sent them to the factory for checkout and repair, and was told that one of the capsules was water-damaged and had received a new diaphragm. (The eBay seller had of course claimed that the capsules were in "perfect" condition ...)

I then used the capsules for live stereo recording as a pair of closely-spaced cardioids, just them and no others in the mix, no compression or EQ. I didn't notice any difference in sound quality between them. It occurred to me only later to ask Schoeps about the diaphragm replacement. Of course, the diaphragm had been replaced with Mylar.

No doubt careful measurements would have revealed some small response differences. Particularly if you subtract the one signal from the other, almost any two capsules--even a factory-matched pair of recent manufacture, using identical materials and manufacturing methods--will show some difference.

But my point is, during the weeks when I wasn't aware of having one capsule with Mylar and one with nickel, I never heard a difference. And I definitely listened to these recordings critically at the time.

For what it's worth.

--best regards

The second I read "we had a radio mic on the home plate umpire" the first thing I thought was "that probably wasn't a great idea" -- LOL

Thanks for sharing!!

Back when I was working at a (Australian) TV station, when we covered baseball we had a radio mic on the home plate umpire...as well as a lipstick camera in his hat. Because the league was trying to expand its fanbase, they allowed the umpires to be wired up in this way. The umpires were all in favour of it too...

So that mic got us the ball/bat/mitt sound, as well as the umpire's calls...and the heated arguments. Unsurprisingly, it was this that caused the biggest gaffe* to go to air...so much so that it made the Xmas Tape Blooper Reel of every network in the country.

We had "disposable" radio shack lav mics hardwired to 1st and 3rd bases for the ball in glove/foot on bag sound. 2nd base was covered by a Sennheiser 816 from near the home dugout.


* For those interested in the actual incident... Batter at the plate, has received a number of pitches. Scoreboard not keeping up, so he asks the ump what the count is. Ump isn't sure (!!!) so he asks the ump at 1st...who shrugged his shoulders. Commentators have said "let's listen in.." and then stopped yakking. Director says "pump the audio"...and the ump says (rude word alert) "No cunt's got a counter!" That hit the meters at about +3. Cue stunned silence from commentators and director. Audio director, 2nd AD, and all the AA's all proceed to piss ourselves laughing.

Hi Gang!
I have a Studer a800 problem (specifically that it's not working). I'm hoping there's some awesome knowledge out there that can get me up and running again! Here's the symptoms:

1. Stop light is off. This isn't the normal flashing safe mode thing, it's just plain off. I suspect it's not a bulb thing because it started at the same time as the other symptoms.
2. Remote flashes on every two seconds or so for a very short time. All zero. Disconnecting it doesn't help.
3. Capstan motor makes a very quiet ticking/groaning/creaking sound and the synch deviation led is on. If I spin it by hand to the right speed the sound goes away and the synch deviation light goes off. It seems like it's trying to keep going but doesn't have the power.
4. Timer display reads 22.05.84 (maybe software rev?) and doesn't clear or change

General info:
I Recently replaced the switching regulator card, but it has old filter caps. The machine worked fine after I did this for a few hours, but then I hit fast forward and a little later hit play. It didn't brake the supply reel correctly, a half foot or so of tape spilled off the reel and then it stopped working.

Voltages on the stabilizer card read correctly

Just testing for transistor voltage drops in only one direction (looking at BE and BC) I found:
MDA power transistors test okay
Transistors on rear rail test okay

I'm not sure what else to test, any help is appreciated greatly!

I'm Arno Bordas, sound engineer, and I've recently received a Mackie console with an old Optifile DRAX automation system.

My problem is the PC software, the manual and other infos are totally missing.
I'd like to know if someone have a copy of this old software and I'd be very grateful for any infos.

I thank you in advance,
