Hi All,

I'm significantly happy to report that we had a swell meeting today in Suffern, with about the best turnout that could be hoped for (except for missing those of you who weren't there). The presentation was enjoyed by all, and talking with them individually and as a group was even better. There was a huge amount of recording and technical expertise in the room, and they freely shared and kibitzed.

The meeting kicked off just after 1:30pm, and we had to restart a couple times to not leave out the new arrivals, which was fine. There was in fact a Jet/Patriots game today in Meadowlands, starting at 1pm, so traffic in the Northeast Corridor was screwed up for hours.

Despite that, we got through the program, although fascinating and welcome comments from attendees made precise timing impossible, but that was a minuscule price to pay to get to be part of that conversation.

The last stragglers left at about 6:40pm, after enjoying Fletcher and Plan B's wonderful food and beverages for a notable amount of time.

Present were Fletcher, Larry/Silvertone from my thread in the Hoffman forum, Dominick Costanzo from Battery Studios, and Tom Fine from whatever his mastering studio is called (can't find it online right now), plus this author.

As I said, there was a lot of recording and technical expertise in that collection of folks, and they already knew a LOT about the gear in the pictures I showed them, and were interested to see the history and details that I presented.

I did record it, but between the fact that there was a significant amount of bleed from the football watching in the bar, and that I don't have rights to the music examples I played, that recording will never be released. Sorry; for at least a while, you're going to need to be there.

Thanks to Fletcher and to all who attended. You all made my day.

Armor All (original).  That'll take care of the smell *and* clean the surface of the cable. 

I used to soak a sponge with it and go to town.  Worked like a champ.  Tape residue, beer, smoke, etc.  I'd imagine Goof Off would work well also, but there was something nice about Armor All...  The "shine" and slickness goes away fairly quickly.

...a black and gold little pub called "Plan B".

That's a real pretty-looking place, Fletcher. I'm looking forward to seeing it in person.

Just a reminder to the group that it's tomorrow at 1:30pm. Since there's a non-zero chance that there will be absolutely no one there (other than Fletcher), note that if that occurs I won't post an update here, out of embarrassment.

If there is someone I'll be happy and will write a little report with a few pictures, because I think it's an interesting subject. And it's nice to have a gathering of people interested in audio so we can talk about the subject we love.

So I hope if anyone reading this is able to get to Suffern without suffering too much, that you will join us.

Thanks!

I picked up  a bottle of Fa-breeze (sp?) and wiped them down (which took hours) and packed 'em back up in my road case.  After almost 1 month later, I was horrified to open the case and get hit with that damn smell!  So, I am open to suggestions to remove the odor (and will charge new client's a cleaning fee, should it be in any location that there are butt-suckers). Idea's??

Don't store them in road cases?

The most horrible smells (including when cables are new) will linger on for years if stored in closed containers, but will dissipate in weeks (maybe) if left in the open so the outgassing can occur and be replaced by clean air.

Putting a fan on them quickens the process.

Be patient and you won't notice the smell after a while. That's been my experience, anyway.

Hopefully you made an extra CD.  I would import the CD into a stereo track on Nuendo and verify that it matches the audio on the session.  If it doesn't then you know that you did something wrong in the process of outputting the files and making the CD.  If it does, then I would verify that the pitch on the original mobile DAW matches the pitch of your "Darth Fader" session.  You have to isolate where the error occurred.

Does anyone have experience with Mylar versions of the m934c capsules on m221 amplifiers? I've used a pair with nickel capsules but, I have not heard the Mylar version.  Apparently they are not reskinned, but left the factory this way.  Is that likely?  Does anyone have any comparison info between the two membranes they could share?  (The amplifiers (mpedance converters) are proper Schoeps with ac701k's in them.

Thanks,
John

Wish it was jus' my eyes, but nope in my cables.  I had done a mobile session that had my mobile gear set up for about 10 days.  I covered the DAW system, mic's were pulled but the canare cabling I have my tech create where let in place.  Well as I was packing off the rig, I realized the cig smoke had sifted from the bands upstairs living quarters down into my mic lines!  I do require no smoking around my gear, but wasn't wise enough to consider long term exposure to cables.
