This looks very interesting, i saw this being used in a vintage king video during a microphone shootout.
But it looks pretty thick ?

This is the Håkan Pop Killer.

The foam is hydrophobic (does not absorb moisture) and is acoustically transparent (fabric ones can colour the sound)*.

It is available in 10 different versions and spare pads are available.  The pads are easily washable and dry quickly (hydrophobic).

Foam is double the thickness of the Rycote, so is more effective in preventing plosives - but still totally transparent*.  The thin wire frame does not affect the sound as it's thinner than the wavelength of the highest audible frequency*.

* the poster's opinion. KH

Hi,

I'm running a small home studio, got some nice gear which I'm getting to know quite well. I'm trying to get the basics right with some nice outboard gear - compressors, EQs and reverbs. It's an 8-track setup, running through an analog desk for mixing, using the DAW for capture and playback.

I'm working a lot on my mixing/balance skills, which are still pretty rudimentary. As I'm getting further into the way my particular setup sounds and how the gear works together I'm always listening to different recordings critically, trying to hear things like balance, reverbs, overall tone and the myriad elements that make up a track. I was struck today by a thought that all the material I'm listening to has been mastered, and while it's great to hear the finished products, I don't have much listening material that is at the post-mix/balance, pre-master stage. I suppose this is a big disadvantage of working from home, and not being exposed to the daily mixing and recording that happens in a working studio environment. I'm mostly self-taught, so I suppose it goes with the territory.

So, I was wondering if any of the more experienced engineers could suggest some listening to give more of an idea of what a well-balanced mix sounds like before going off to be mastered? Such material might not exist, but my thinking is that I'm not going about things the right way if I try to emulate the sounds of mastered recordings while mixing (specifically the overall sound energy, reverb tails, upper range EQ and final sparkle and polish).

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Stephen

I really dig the Rycote one too.

Very easy. Bridge the pads either with a fat drop of nicely flowing solder that will flow to both solder points (visible under each resistor) or remove the resistors and solder a small piece of wire across the two solder points

Thanks Klaus. If I posted pics of my KM84s internals, would you be able to tell me what the ohm output strapping was, and if the pads had already been bridged?

Thanks Klaus, one worry was that after drilling out the screw, the remnants might be hard to measure to figure out the gauge. I *do* have a screw gauge though.

I appreciate the trick, it may leave me with something easy to measure.

Just for the random reader, it is definitely *not* a case where it is a grub screw that goes inward into the body.

Two pieced of advice:

1. Use a small-to-medium wattage solder iron, and hold it into the center of the mangled screw's head. The heat will eventually dissolve enough of the strength of screw locking chemicals to move the screw out (unless it's mechanically locked by other than chemical means).
This system of applying heat is fairly safe to surrounding components.

Invest in a thread gauge. I use this one: https://www.misterworker.com/en-us/stahlwille/screw-pitch-gauge-12665/9103.html

The diameter of metric screws is easy to determine as it always corresponds to the DIN M-size. For example, an "M3" screw has an outer overall diameter of 3mm.

Does anyone here happen to know what the thread pitch and screw size is for the body screw of a Milab-DC96b?

I have one here with a body screw that is absolutely locked. It was either cross threaded or has some kind of loctite type substance on it.

At some point I am probably going to cover up the headbasket (for safety), and just drill out the screw, but I would ideally like to have the replacement screw on hand when I do that.

Kai,
Your last sentence is not clear to me: as I mentioned, even Neumann does not separate audio ground from AC/chassis ground.
Please explain in simple words what you mean.

I also recommend to not stray too far from the original subject. Maybe rackmount design goes a bit too far into the woods for this forum's users.
I edited it, hope it’s clear right now.
I do not advocate separating grounds beyond what the device designer intended.
By no means I suggest to change internals of devices.

Hum loops and the like are a common problem in studios and closely connected to the topic I think, so hopefully I did not digress too far.

Wooden rack rails is my invention (no Pat. pending) and hereby I share it with the world :)
